My 26th Birthday

I celebrated my 26th birthday on Saturday!

Since Melissa and Nai was going to be out of town, they gave me my gift early on Friday. Melissa, Nai, Patty and Dave chipped in together to get me a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer! A Metallic Silver one to match my stainless steel kitchen! Yay! I have been wanting this for the LONGEST time but just couldn't get myself buy it! hehe the brat that I am, I already knew I was getting it because I went with Dave to Macy's when he went to look at it.

So far I've made some blueberry muffins and chocolate peanut butter marble cake with it! I'm dying to make some cinnamon rolls!

On my actual birthday, -- we started off the morning with participating in the Susan G. Komen Walk for L.A County. It's a 5K Run/Walk. I'm so glad Dave, Wendy, Rony, Sally, Helen, & Patty participated in the walk in honor of my birthday! It was a cool morning. I walked with just Helen as it is hard to walk with a lot of people. I was glad to see that the race route had changed(the last 2 years, it was around the Dodger Stadium parking lot.) and as well as a lot more people participating this year! I'm definitely going to do it again next year.

After the walk, we went to eat Dim Sum. Dim Sum refers to a style of Chinese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. When I explain what Dim Sum is, I just say it's Chinese brunch. lol Dave had it for the first time ever and he tried EVERYTHING, including the chicken feet. yay good sport!

At night, we went to dinner at Benihanas. I had never been there so it was nice. Our chef wasn't very good. He dropped the egg on the floor and messed up several time. He was at least funny.

My friends got me cupcakes from Dots. Local Bakery that makes really good red velvet cupcakes! Wendy and Rony got me a ton of stuff for my kitchen. It included a brand new plate set for 6 -- which I was super excited for! I've been wanting a new one but it wasn't in our budget for the time being.

In addition to my mixer, Dave got me a new camera! I've been wanting a new power shot, since he had been calling my old one a bobble head camera. Canon SX260 HS. This thing has an amazing zoom!

extra, extra icing on the cake -- Dave also got me a trip to Costa Rica! We're going in May. I'm so excited!!! Dave is the greatest!

As you can see I had the best birthday yet! I have the most wonderful boyfriend and friends!

Hello everyone! I wanted to do an update about how things have been going with me. My friend Bryant has been harassing for me to update my blog like every other day. He even asked for my password so he can update for me. Lol.

This will be a long post!

As you all know, we got the cutest little puppy name Cody. He’s a little over 4 mos now. He was all shy and mellow when we first got him. But this little guy is a monster. He loves to run around all over the house and chews on wood a lot! He’s getting the potty training down so no more accidents. Any time, I sit on the floor he automatically runs to me and sits on my lap. He’s just too adorable. We take to Lowe's every time we go. He's a regular and everyone knows him by his name. Quite the ladies man!

2 weeks ago I went to Boston with Sally, Jenn, and Mmai. We went to visit TMai for her White Coat ceremony. It was a really good trip. A lot of walking, a lot of eating, and we were always on the go. We even went to NYC for a day!

All these pictures were taken on my camera phone. I will post more that were taken with the real cameras, as I get them. I didn't take my camera with my because I didn't want to lug it around.

Dave and I moved into our new house. Poor Dave did all the moving while I was in Boston. The house is a lot of work but it’s coming together nicely! I LOVEEEE HAVING MY OWN KITCHEN. Dave is the greatest. Since we’re both Aries, we both want instant gratification. Obviously it’s going to take some time to gather the whole house together. We’re starting with the living room for now.

My craft room is still at my parents house for now. We haven’t painted my new craft room yet. Yes, I’m going to have a craft room at the new house too. Like I said, Dave is the greatest! I told him the garage can be his man cave. Hehehe

Saturday is my 26th birthday! I am getting OLD, no offense. The only plan I had for my birthday was to do the Susan G. Komen Walk for LA County. I thought it was especially special since it lands on my birthday. Dave planned a dinner for me and invited my friends. Yay! Again, he's the greatest!

No crafting for awhile until I get my new craft room situated. Thanks for stopping by!
