(Can I do this every day? Wait. I kinda already do.. Let me rephrase. Can I get paid to do this everyday?)
For my services, they gave me a $75 gift certificate!
I already knew what I wanted to get - been eyeing the Frye Carson boots for a while and was just waiting for the right moment.
As soon as I got the gc, I checked Bing to see what their rate for cashback was and YIPPEEE! It was 40%! (I'm really sad their cashback program is going away at the end of the month..)
Now I need your help. Do I love this color? I definitely love the style - mid-calf, a little bit slouchy. I checked out the dark brown version and I don't think they're really me.. But is this tan too light? Hunny Bunny likes this color more than the dark brown. What do you think?

I'm a little disappointed in myself because I only heard about this magical food fest this year.. Not to worry though, I redeemed myself by eating 3 years worth of deliciousness, so all is forgiven.
For those of you not in-the-know, 10 Seattle chefs come together and get their grill on with local, sustainably raised animals during this event.
which way did he go?
what the cluck??
pork belly served on a steamed bun a la Peking duck
(I missed taking a photo of the "pork" station - not to worry, I didn't miss eating it! served with white beans cooked with what else? BACON!)
a little bit spicy and a lotta bit delicious - and cornbread... served with choice of jalapeno, honey or truffle butters (I had 5 pieces!)
Who's coming with me next year??

I can finally eat again. And to celebrate we went to a neighborhood
joint for some shabu shabu.
Tender marbly beef with all the shabu shabu fixings. I got the wagyu
with soy milk broth. De.li.cious.
On a non-food note, our young waiter was trying to make conversation
and mentioned he started reading Twilight. I told him that we live
near Forks and he damn near crapped his pants - he didn't even realize
it was a real place!
He told me I made his life and that he couldn't wait to tell his
friends that he practically met Bella.
Ummmm.... Can't talk now. Eating.

leaving Vietnam. Haven't been able to have the culinary adventure that
I was hoping to have. Barely eating at all and it sucks!
Who wouldve thought that I would be the one with the eating disorder
on this trip... HB has been getting his grub ON - eating both his and
my portion of each meal. Damn him!
Oh and he's also getting his SHOP on too! What the heck! I haven't
bought anything and so far he's purchased 3 shirts, a jacket and a belt.
I must be gravely ill.

for the exit before we had even taxied into the gate. All the flight
attendants kept telling everyone to get back in their seats and buckle
They were all yelling at people that they needed to sit down and
finally one of the flight attendent yelled, "This is a plane, not a
bus! No standing in the aisle!!"
HB and I were dying.

from the coconut, but this is on a whole new, and delicious, level.
The coconut water is made into a clear gelatin with a thin layer of
coconut milk on top, all served chilled in a coconut.
Omfg. I've had at least one every day so far. It's so magical and
refreshing and fragrant and yummy....
