Little Treasures

Weekends at my parents’ house are so fun. They’re always filled with activity, food, laughter and quality family time. 

Another benefit? I sometimes get a chance to sort through old stuff and stumble upon little treasures like this picture of me and Ryan, taken during our third month of dating. 

Two Blondes

Can you believe Ryan’s hair!? He was a blonde boy when I met him! 

Before settling on his current ‘do, Ryan also rocked the spikey/gel look. 


I’ve  loved him through all of his hair transformations but I think his low maintenence look right now fits his laid-back personality the best. 

I spent quite a lot of time looking through boxes of old pictures, dating all the way back to junior high! I think I asked myself “what was I thinking!?” about a million times. 😉 


For dinner tonight, my family and I headed out to a nearby Thai restaurant for some grub. 

My mom and I both ordered soups to start, and I selected the vegetable tofu. 

Veggie Tofu Soup


As an entree, my dad shared his large plate of fried tofu, veggies and rice. 

Veggie Platter

Everything was very good! 

When we came home, I made dessert (vanilla dream pie) which we ate in no time at all while curled up on the couch watching The Blind Side. 

It was my first time seeing the movie, and I really enjoyed it. The story was inspiring and Sandra Bullock was perfect in her role. 

Now, my friends, I am one sleepy lil’ blogger… Off to bed!
