by Chrissy

 

Lauren Bach_LYK3

I am proud to announce that:

1. Lauren’s bachelorette weekend in Cabo, Mexico was AMAZING.

2. We managed to sufficiently embarrass the Bride-to-Be, on every occasion, while making her wear her veil, light up ring, huge lei, party hats, sashes, and maybe a few other things…

3. We all made it back to the States in one piece. Phew.

Between, basking in the sun, making bomb meals, eating the best ceviche, frolicking on Lover’s Beach, swimming in the ocean, … Read more...

These burgers. THESE burgers are fan-tastic.

Just the right amount of flavor, all throughout.

A Very Merry Birthday!

by Chrissy

Oh hi there. I’m an old lady now. I’m officially 24 years old. I know what you’re thinking: Yikes.

But, with great friends, the most amazing food at my favorite restaurant, and the excitement of mine and Pearl’s joint birthday PJammy party this weekend, I’d say that it has been one of the best birthdays, yet!

At Enoteca Adriano, Chef Franco and his servers greeted me with one of the best gifts ever… the burrata special named … Read more...

Birthday Bonanza

by cmocush

Sorry for the lag on blog-posting. I needed a bit of extra time for optimum post-birthday recovery. This could have been the reason why…

A great pick from Trader Joe's wine selection

Since Lauren and I are new to the “real job” scene, as full-time office employees, and skipping responsibilities means more now than just ditching class or procrastinating on a paper, I’d never really thought about working on my birthday! Apparently everyone does it. Its no secret in … Read more...
