Project 366: Day 77, 03-17 St. P’s

Kiss me, I’m a Jayhawk…

Since I have lived in Chicago (6+ years), this is the first weekend we haven’t celebrated a Chi-rish St. Patty’s and it just so happens to be the return of the South Side Parade.

Oh, well. Glad to be in Omaha to support the Hawks.




Project 366: Day 56, 02-25 The Good Guys Won

Kansas v. Mizzou. The Border War. Last game of a 100+ year rivalry.

Wow. Today’s game was so intense, I could barely watch (but I did…eyes partially covered). Of course, the good guys won. Muck Fizzou!

The Crossing was nuts after the win…


Project 366: Day 45, 02-14 L-O-V-E

Amour. Amor. Amore. Yeu. Laska. Liebe. Milosc. LOVE.

Happy Valentine’s Day!


Project 366: Day 40, 02-09 First Birthday Card

My has to be the cutest on earth. She sent me a card today with a pic from the day I was born (all fat cheeked) and a form for me to fill out: 1982 vs. 2012 – weight, height, etc. Adorable.


Project 366: Day 23, 01-23 Happy Year of the Dragon!

My mom is so amazing. Every year, for as long as I can remember, writes a little wish on my li xi red envelope. It’s one of my favorite traditions. In fact, I save them each year (yes, I am a hoarder, remember?).

Chuc mung nam moi!



Project 365: Day 44 – 02.13

Cory and I celebrated my birthday at Owen and Engine in Bucktown. Cory had previously eaten there with some of his guy friends and came home gushing about the meal. Meanwhile, that night, I was eating spaghetti and a sauce from a jar. Needless to say, I had a case of extreme food jealousy and asked that he take me there for my birthday.

Project 365: Day 40 – 02.09

Cory gifted some of my mom’s friends’ little boys (who LOVE him) with li xi (lucky money) in red envelopes.

  • 6 banh bao’s (buns)
  • 4 banh xio’s (meat-filled goodness
  • Some xoi (rice dish)
  • Che (dessert)
  • Banh cam (fried dessert with mung bean center)
