Everything is Illuminated

Spent a horribly short weekend with my loves, which mainly consisted of copious amounts of caffeine to help us recover from the food coma caused by my parents and a Filipino feast for breakfast each morning... And just eating in general. Practically everywhere we went was motivated by food. Except Disneyland. Uri and I were motivated to obtain Mickey ears. Mission accomplished.

But a few notable things from this trip:

1. Creme Brulee Mochilato = Heaven.
2. Soda works better for me than coffee for a caffeine fix.
3. I love my friends more for thinking my parents are ridiculously funny.
4. So Cal weather can be just as unpredictable as Nor Cal weather - but at least its warmer down there.
5. A trip to Japan is going to be needed ASAP.
6. My brother is the awesomeness.. and he can EAT.
7. The next time a weird man with two chicks is taking our pictures at Disneyland with a bedazzled Hello Kitty Camera = "What did the five fingers say to the face?"

Uri and Loren: Engagement Shoot, Pt. 1

Uri and Loren are moving to Sin City this summer and for their photoshoot, they wanted to take pictures at some of the iconic spots in San Francisco as a reminder of the city where they met and (fell in) love. We were fortunate enough to get many photos sans tourists since we were going to fairly tourist populated locations, probably because the weather was gloomy off and on. Gotta love the Bay.

Location: Fisherman's Wharf

I've never really been a fan of Coach. Granted I have a Coach planner and a wristlet, but as far as going out and spending money on a purse, Coach was never up there for me. Until I saw the bag designed by Emily of cupcakesandcashmere. The pink just makes me want cupcakes and the design is so sweet and simple. Perhaps this will be my first Coach bag purchase? Perhaps.

Eat: Vanilla Almond Tart

We had an early mother's day for Irwin's grandmother, and since it was beautiful and warm outside, I decided against cupcakes and made a Vanilla Almond Mixed Fruit Tart. I made it just before going to church, stuck it in the freezer to speed up the firming process of the filling, and topped it off with the fruit and sliced almonds. It was an instant hit.
