Dinner with friends

November 15, 2010

Saturday night, we had plans to go out for dinner at Nanbankan with friends. We headed to Jun and Justine’s place a little early, and got to hang out with Ethan, who is definitely a little boy now – no longer a baby! Once he got past his initial shyness, he was very eager to show off all of his toys – so cute that he insists on the specific names for each type of car (“Racecar!” “Engine!” “Tow truck!”). When Jun let him take a few shots with his camera, he was concentrating so hard on getting the perfect shot – looks like a little photographer in the making.

As for dinner, the food was good – your typical izakaya fare. Some highlights of the meal were bacon-wrapped asparagus, grilled corn, chilean sea bass, chicken meatballs, and deep fried oysters. Oh yes, and of course copious amounts of hot sake and cold Asahi to wash it all down.

Little Miss Audrey…

turned 1!

After lots of coaxing (girlfriend just did NOT want to pick anything!), she finally made a grab for the pencil. Looks like Josh and May have a little future scholar on their hands!

An unexpected surprise

October 4, 2010

I had one of those dreary, blah, no-good Mondays, but when I came home, I had a little surprise waiting for me…

Remember this post? Well, it looks like my dear friend Hana did too, and now this beauty is mine! I love the look of the layered mixed metal chains and pearls – perfect for fall, and its arrival is so timely, considering today was the first day the temperatures dipped low enough to justify pulling out my boots (finally)! Thank you, thank you, thank you for the thoughtful early birthday gift – I will think of you every time I wear it! BP-BP for life!
