What I love….

by Destini on June 27, 2012

I love when things just come together, like peanut butter and jelly. Nothing is better than peanut butter and jelly. Sure on their own they are both amazing(more so peanut butter). But when mingled together the univers just aligns.  Okay I have totally forgotten what I am talking about. But I think the point was things are coming together and I am happy. The last several days I have spent considerable amount of time actually trying to conquer our wedding albums…..AND GUESS WHAT? I DID IT! Three albums, one for George’s family, one for mine and ours! One thing off my summer list. After picking out all the photos and placing them. I really enjoyed spending the time organizing them, I havent really looked at our photos too closely since I got them. Gave me all warm fuzzy feelings!

My original intentions for this post was to talk about things I am REALLY loving right now. But dinner happened and now I want to share that. Last minute need for food happened tonight. I was going to make some typical dinner dish, but the desire to finish and order the wdding albums took over. Fast forward to 8:30 and a husband crying for food, we went out. I usually try to avoid this as this is the time that poor choices are more likely to happen. But this one turned out to be wonderful!

We went to a little Thai restaurant called Sabai.

They were about to close in 30min so it was going to be a quick visit. The menu had wonderful curry in all types. I ordered the Curried Eggplant, George had Khao San Pad Thai and our friend had Pineapple Yellow Curry…..I tried all of them and they were amazing!! We will be making another visit very soon, maybe a longer stay next time 😀

OMG SOOO GOOD! I couldn’t eat it all, so I had to take a doggy bag 🙂

These might possibly be some of my favorite candies. Anytime we get any Thai or Vietnamese I always grab a few for my purse. Sabai actually sells these in bags for $3….I may have forced George to get some.

Well it’s 10pm and I want to try and get into bed at an actual normal time.

Question: What is your favorite candy that you have trouble saying no to? If not candy, anything else food related?



Advice for a Noob

by Destini on June 26, 2012

I have noticed that lately I have been lazy, pretty sluggish to be completely honest.  Just no real goals for myself.  Battlestar Galactica has been my source for entertainment and my excuse for for lack of. I called it my detox from my wedding….but let’s be realistic that was 9 months ago! Time to snap out of it, start making some goals, let’s get things going!

I think that list is pretty solid! Some may be a little adventurous. Maybe even some out of my comfort zone. I often stick to the things I know. And can feel some sort of anxiety when I try something new. I never used to have that kind of problem, but apparently now I do. It is something that I know I need to work on.

Today I registered for my very first 5krun. It is the CIBC Run for the Cure. Which is a breast cancer run. Breast cancer is something very close to me as both my Mom and Aunt had it, treated it and now are cancer free! I thought this would be a great start …. maybe even half marathon next year? Okay, I suppose I am getting ahead of myself. But really, maybe I will actually enjoy running? But the truth is….I hate it. I remember the first time my personal trainer walked towards the treadmills at the gym for my first 20min cardio session. I am surprised I didn’t run in the complete opposite direction. But I also had a goal of getting fit for my wedding..that was a goal. So I am registered, getting donations….I have a goal! Now what I need from all of you is advice! I know many of you run and have ran in marathons. Tell me what helped you get there? Tell me what tricks help make it better? What do you recommend? What do I wear? Should I get an iphone arm strap? Is there any good websites to help track my progress? Any good informative websites? Any apps for my phone? How about socks? H E L P

Tonight I have a party for my cousins sons graduation and her birthday! Should be a great time.

Question: Have you ran in a marathon? What is the best advice you can give a noob like me?


Weekend & Epicure

June 25, 2012

Well hello lovelies! Hope everyone is not feeling too blue from Monday! I know I personally hate Monday. Someone once asked me if it was because I hated my job, the truth is I love my job. I just dislike Monday. This weekend I went to my Mom’s for a bbq and a fire. It was wonderful! She lives just outside the city which can be nice to just get away. These potatoes are my favorite! Preheat oven to 350c, slice potatoes, sprinkle with fresh dill (or you can use Epicures Dill), Epicures Chili Garlic Sea Salt(obsessed with this stuff), sliced white onion, cover with some EVOO and wrap in tin foil, poke […]
