Remembering Things Again

2014-08-23 13.31.09


Yesterday, I went to my dad’s house two hours south of me for his 50th birthday.  My broth and sister came as well and it was so good to see my family.

We visited my grandpa and my aunt happened to be there as well.  She had picked off all the grapes from my grandma’s old grapevine and was going to make jelly like grandma used to.  She had my grandma’s recipe book on the table.  I have never actually seen the book, but looking at it brought back memories.

My Korean Skincare Routine

DSC_0180Chester played a huge role in my picture taking today.  By that I mean he just stuck his face or body in nearly every picture.  He has such a funny personality and he ALWAYS has to be the center of attention!  I love that about him the most.   Continue reading

My leg at the entrance to the spa

This past weekend, K and I went to our favorite place: Chicago!  We love going there because we get to go to the big Korean market called H-Mart, where there’s The Face Shop and other Korean chain stores, which I just get totally excited about.  H-Mart is great because it’s so inexpensive compared to our local Korean markets.   Continue reading

A Sample Inspiration

Today, my coworker gave me some fresh tomatoes and peppers, so thinking about what to do with them, I decided to make a pizza from scratch :)  I first cut up all the vegetables. Continue reading

Settling In With My Funny Cat

2014-08-03 20.13.20This cat is hilarious. I actually had time to take a picture of him while he sat there with this strange open-mouthed face for at least five minutes. There isn’t much that he doesn’t do that isn’t hilarious.   Continue reading

Being Alone

2014-07-25 19.16.21


It’s way too quiet in here tonight.  This is Chester at the moment. He’s staring daggers it seems at me for typing too loudly while he was trying to take a nap. It appears I woke him.   Continue reading


I Think I Might Have A Problem

Ok, I know i have a problem.  Tonight I went to pick up some groceries and ended up also bringing home a beauty blender sponge, which is basically just an oblong makeup sponge, and a Freeman peel off mask and paper mask. Continue reading

A Week Without Internet

2014-07-13 07.48.36


Here’s a picture of Chester enjoying the view of his new “mega window” as I call it.

It feels so wrong to me not posting of so long!  I promise, I’ve been here all along, just without internet.  I have been in the process of moving and it has been hectic, to say the least.  I just hate going from one place to the other carrying stuff here and there and it seems never ending.  I’m finally at a place where I feel basically settled and ok, but it’s still taking some getting used to.

A Beautiful Day At The Mill

Today was very eventful for K and me. We decided to visit a nearby state park called Spring Mill. He has never visited the park before and I have fond memories from visiting there several times as a kid. I was so hoping that it was still going to be what I remembered and it ended up being pretty great. Continue reading
