My March weekends were super packed. Like 1-3 events per day. I had to take cat naps in the car (while markel drove. hehe) to keep up!
Below is part dos of our month of funnnn~~~So much happened that this post will be mainly a photodump of fun events.
First up: Versailles! Markel’s high school bff was in the process of finishing up his last rotation in Pharm school and so he lived with us for 6 weeks. As a final farewell, we went to dinner at Versailles located in Culver City. The food there is phenomenal and for the first time I was able to share some dishes and try more of the menu!
afterwards we got boba at this local place near us called 70 degrees. The cups were a total rip off of Half and Half and the boba was decent.
look at this epic fail of a pic that the owner of the boba place took below. we had to ask another person to
some cool parting gifts from Dennis to us =) wine…my faaave. hehe
Dennis was such an incredible and respectful house guest, Feb/March was a total blast. Markel normally comes home around 830-9pm so it was nice to have someone to play with and watch tv with after work. I tortured him with Real Housewives, PLL, Revenge, Nashville and many many many more girlie shows =) muhahaha aren’t i such an amazing host??
One Saturday morning Markel and I had to go to his nephews bday lunch but he wanted to play golf with his friends before. So Lucy and I had to kill about 3 hours of time. First up, I went to a local brunch spot with an outdoor patio (for lucy). This was my first time eating alone at a restaurant! HUGE HUGE HUGE accomplishment for me. I’m too shy to do something like this, but due to the circumstances I had no choice. Turns out it isn’t all that bad. I played on my phone, looked around and also had a cwazy lucy underneath me getting tangled everywhere. The cafe was meh, but I was happy to have done something big like this on my own! I’m ready for 30 now =D
Next up…the bday! Markel comes from a big family and one of his nephews recently turned 16! I feel so old that I can’t even remember what my 16th birthday was like. *sigh * The menu was homemade mexican food (which is my faaaaaaaaaav).
look at how tall Jacob is?!?! He’s only 16 and over 6ft tall.
This new hipster/nerd bar opened up in the arts district area and well…it was PACKED.
82 Barcade: Where all the hipster nerds (and just nerds) come to congregate. look at this line to get in! it totally wraped around the building as well~~ cray.
Inside were hipster drinks like PBR but we kept it classy with miller light and whiskey and coke. lol
I just really like this blurry pic. but basically bar 82 projects the most popular arcade games being played. street fighter is a constant staple but the other two change (i think).
Our first round =) Mason Jar thai iced tea cockatils. can you believe it?? lol sooooo hipster i couldn’t keep up. that’s why i’m the lame ass who got the miller lite.
markel playing pinball in the other room. so many pinball machines~ some super fancy and some not so fancy (aka “retro”)
the next day markel and i had to recover with a big brunch in front of the tv =) dun worry, we shared this massive brekkie (or did we…)
My bff from college came down to Huntington Beach and had a little sleep over + a day of fun at the beach.
delicious easter cake pops! they were all made and ready when i arrived~~
Her two cousins wanted to do a “spa day” and i was their first client. joy huh? this is chunky oatmeal being spread on my face. but honestly~~ they were such great hosts and the little ones really know how to throw a raging sleep over!
we went for a late night Lee’s Sandwiches run. I LOVE LEE’s coffees and sandwiches. since they’re only in the OC, i can never get enough of it when i see one. Best viet coffees everrrr.
my breakfast the next morning =P my friend’s grandma insisted that i have two donuts for breakfast. lol love grandmas that push food on you!
we spent the rest of the day (which was also cesar chavez day) bike riding along hunting beach from her aunt’s house to the pier. SO MUCH FUN. It was a gorgeous day and i haven’t ridden a bike all year!
Now, a little photodump of the month + lucy pics (of course) + date nights with my Markel.
Cute gifts from korea
Sunday Date with Markel in Culver City! =) We walked around downtown CC and tried a new restaurant we hadn’t been to before. It was aiite. Nothing special except that the waiter sucked. We won’t be going back to Kay and Daves anytime soon. >.<
Markle’s Parents came to visit us one saturday as well so we went to brunch in Santa Monica and walked around third street and the farmer’s market.
