Weekend in Photos

Oh boyyyy was it hard getting out of bed this morning. Seriously…I severely underestimated how tired I would be with Daylight Savings, and overestimated my willpower to get up after just one snooze. This is all karma for me being the DST cheerleader yesterday. Let’s just say I’ll probably be staying late at work today to make up for some lost time 😉


Friday night, we played Settlers of Catan with two friends. Can’t decide if I’m embarrassed or proud that we played it twice last week!


Saturday, we drove to Palo Alto for T-Man’s grandpa’s 80th birthday. Here are two of his grandparents’ kitties. 🙂


Dick’s special dinner was at Chef Chu’s in Los Altos. Suffice it to say, it was an epic meal. Clockwise from top left: Peking Duck & Hoisin sauce on bao, the whole spread (General Tso’s chicken, Mongolian beef, a whole fish, candied prawns…), and the fish! It was fried with a sweet/sticky sauce. And those are its eyeball sockets. No one was brave enough to eat them 😛


T-Man and my fortune cookies were EERILY accurate. T-Man is notorious for exaggerating embellishing his stories, and something unusual just happened at my work – there are definitely big changes coming up! We drove home just in time to see Justin Timberlake (and a whole host of other guest stars) on SNL. Always amazing!


Woke up bright and early on Sunday morning and did some much-needed spring cleaning. My room is like a shoebox, so messes pile up quickly!


I tried to balance out all that meat from the night before with some clean eats on Sunday. After working up an appetite cleaning, I had breakfast/lunch: black beans mashed with coconut milk, an egg, cheese and sriracha! Then, I went shopping and decided not to buy this dress that made me look like a 9 year old girl. For dinner: roasted broccoli and cauliflower, mixed greens, avocado and cannellini beans……and a beer on the balcony.

Not a bad weekend!

Also, can I just say that I meant to post this about an hour ago, but got distracted by:


Ancestry.com. My parents made an account a year ago and I seriously just lost myself on that website! I was just interested in finding out all of my ethnic origins, and stuff got waaay complicated. All I know for sure is that only 3 of my 8 great-grandparents were purebreds: one Swede, one Italian, and one Irish. As for the rest of ’em, I may have to just simplify things and call them Anglo-Germanic Czechoslowegians….PLUS, I found out the family of my mom’s dad has been in America since the 1600’s! Fascinating.

Daylight Savings… thumbs up or thumbs down?

Ever tried out Ancestry.com?

    • Haha, thanks Tina. It was cute, I just couldn’t think of any occasion to wear it to…I kept thinking it looked like the kind of dress that would have been my Easter Sunday dress as a kid!

  1. BIG thumbs down! I am totally napping when I get home from work instead of hitting up the gym. I want one of your grandparents cats, the expensive one 😉 And so fun with ancestry.com! Now you have an excuse to drink excess amounts of beer this weekend!!

  2. Time change SUCKS! Oops. Did I write that? But delve into your ancestry while your ancestry can be still accessible… Treasures will be forever lost unless you do… (ps I like orange. lol)

  3. We play settlers of catan too!

    Well, seeing as I was up at 5 (4?) to drive to Davis for a Triathlon, I sure got my fill of daylight savings. I love how it’s lighter later in the day but am still adjusting 🙂

    • Yes!! Settlers is great!

      And I think that means you have the ultimate authority when it comes to complaining about Daylight Savings 😛 That is awesome!

    • It’s actually not an expansion pack, just a reeeally old version of the game! Though my boyfriend does have the expansion to expands the game to 5-6 players

  4. 1. I haaaattteee daylight savings time! They say it takes a month to get back to normal with your sleeping routine and what not. Why do we do this again!? ughh
    2. Your sunday breakfast = my kind of food (sriracha!)
    3. I have’t checked out ancestry.com but I’m soooo intrigued.
