March Madness

It feels like forever since my last real blog post! Anyhoo, lots of random stuff happened the last two weeks. Here's a quickie recap with photos :)

On March 16th, Vinh & I spent $599 on a 8-piece BergHOFF pot/pan set. We also got a wok, 7-piece knife set with wooden block/holder, 2 paring knives, portable induction stove & a strainer for free. We figured we might as well just start building up stuff we need so by the time we get a house, we'll have stuff! I must say I love my UFO-looking wok ;)

All our cooking goods!

Since we were already on a slight spending spree, I had an itch to buy a new Coach purse. Apparently, there was a 50% off discounted prices for handbags that I didn't know about because I got a lovely surprise at the register. The original price was $298 & I only ended up paying $97 (tax included), score! I love that I actually got a bigger bag & that it is very spring-y as well as suitable for summer ;)

On St. Patty's Day, I had the pleasure of playing maternity photographer for Elaine & David. See their photos here.

Quotes we ran into during the shoot

I was flexed off work on March 19th so I was hanging out with my parents & sisters while Vinh worked. I received my octobabies charm bracelet from Oborocharms & love it! Look how cute they are :)


On March 22nd, one of patient's family brought in a sinfully delicious treat for us: caramel popcorn with chocolate & white frosting drizzled on top! *drool* I shall get diabetes for sure ;)

Om nom nom!

Since Vinh was stressed about work, we went to the Fireside Cafe & Gelato for dinner before heading the Valley Fair for a little walk. Vinh needed a projector adapter for my macbook air so we went to get that first. Then we went into the Swarovski store for fun where I saw a cute bunny keychain...for $115, yikes! Then we headed to Sanrio where I ran into the tokidoki unicorno series one mystery boxes. I decided to buy one & ended up with the second rarest unicorno in the series: Fumo!

Yesterday March 22nd, Vinh & I decided to hangout at my parents' place for the day. I ended up receiving my pink pulse oximeter in the mail. yay! This OT finally owns a pulse ox, no more sharing at work!

Pretty pink pulse ox

Vinh & I also decided to head to Mitsuwa to try out Marion Crepes (famous crepe place in Japan) before they closed. Can you say deliciousness?! The whipped cream is friggin' delish! I got the strawberries with whipped cream & chocolate syrup while Vinh got the banana version. We devoured these suckers quickly!

Today, we decided to go pick up Lonnie so she could try Marion Crepes since today was their last day before they closed shop. I got the same one as yesterday, but added a scoop of vanilla ice cream to it since it was hot out today. Absolutely perfect crepe *drool* Too bad they aren't here any longer :(

Marion Crepes = happiness!

  1. Love the cookware! Expensive, but I've learned over the years, you get what you pay for when it comes to cookware! Looks like a it will be a great set for you!
    Also a good idea to start saving stuff now, so that when you do move in, you aren't spending lots to get what you absolutely NEED, you will already have it :)
    I am in LOVE with that Coach purse! If you catch them on Holidays, that's when they have the BEST sales! :) I just swiped a leather one, originally $500, for only $100 :) In love with that place :)

    Those Crepes look SOO YUMMY! I've never had one before, always wanted to try! They have a place called Roosters here, who is really big on them!

    You are just the busy bee Miss Annie <3 :) I am glad you doing well!
