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.
ROCK CHALK SHAMROCK!!!
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…

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.

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!

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.
Cory gifted some of my mom’s friends’ little boys (who LOVE him) with li xi (lucky money) in red envelopes.
Some delicious banh chung my mom sent us, a tradition for the New Year.
Since we couldn’t make it back to Wichita, we went up to Little Vietnam today to stock our place with our favorite Vietnamese goodies, including:
6 banh mi’s (sandwiches) from
Ba Le 6 banh bao’s (buns)
4 banh xio’s (meat-filled goodness
Some xoi (rice dish)
Banh cam (fried dessert with mung bean center)

thank you cards that we send each year.
