March Recap & photodump Part II

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!

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).

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).
