I went to my friends’ baby’s 1st birthday on Saturday.
Her cute little name is Rosie Blessing, and she just turned one! In the Korean culture, a baby’s 1 year birthday is one of the most important celebrations ever. Some people go all out, even as to spend over $10,000!
However, my friends Helen and Min kept it simple and just had a big group of us gather at their lovely house. We had lots of Korean dishes and played crazy “baby games”. Think, a bunch of chocolate candy bars mushed into a diaper and the person has to try it to figure out which bars are in it, kind of game. We had so much fun and most importantly, we were there to bless this beautiful family.
Today is Greg’s actual birthday, but we celebrated on Saturday and went to one of our most esteemed places in Socal.
I got dressed up in my new dress that Greg got me for Christmas from Opensky.
It’s my first time wearing a maxi dress, and I have to say that it’s so comfy that I feel like I’m wearing PJs.
Once again, we visited Urth Caffe on Melrose and finally calmed our cravings for their Spanish Latte.
Greg ordered the Urth Quesadilla.
And I opted for the Mediterranean Platter.
They sure make a mean Dolmas! I wonder how they do it. But well, it’s Urth…so what can they not do?
We were sort of running late to our next activity. But good thing that instead of being too stressed out (at least Greg wasn’t and I kind of was), we tried to take it easy on the road while listening to The Screwtape Letters by the one and only C.S. Lewis, woot!
And just where were we headed to, you ask?
We went to the actual Screwtape Letters play, which happens to be the new “sensation” in town. It has been highly acknowledged by newspapers around the US and is rapidly catching people’s attention. Whether you’re a Christian or not, I guarantee that it’s a well written letter and if you watch it on stage everything comes to life and perspective. The play is filled with satire and funny scenes to lighten up the mood, so it’s not as scary as the title makes it sound, but it sure is provoking and challenging to my faith.
Currently, I am working on a DIY project for Greg’s birthday gift. (Yes it is late, don’t mention it) I have always loved to make things on my own, but these days it just seems harder and harder to make the time for projects.
I will soon reveal what that project is, and I actually got the idea and inspiration from another blogger!
For now, let your eyes feast on this beautimous cupcake….
I apologize that you can’t be here to try some, while Greg will probably be gorging down every single one of them.
But! That doesn’t mean that you can’t make it yourself. So I pinky promise to share the recipe with you should I not lose the recipe paper! No sirree, this time my absent mindedness won’t get the best of me.
Have a blessed day y’all!
Which eatery do you tend to frequent or always look forward to?
-Definitely Urth! If you’re in LA, I highly recommend it.
