I haven’t done a post like this in a while, so I was feeling up for it. Here’s a little peak into the things that have been saving me this month.
PS… here’s Josh @ 9 months vs. 2 years… CAN.NOT.HANDLE.
- Bubble Baths
This has been a true luxury ever since we moved into our new apartment. Our baths have JETS btw… which definitely kick it up a notch. I’ve taken a bath at least once a week for the past couple months, sometimes more. It is the perfect way for me to relax physically & mentally. I am looking into a bath tray so that if I wanted to I could watch, read or eat/drink during.
- Old Navy Maternity
Just discovered this thanks to my lovely mama friend who ventured with me over to Old Navy to check out some incredibly well-priced items. Left the store with 3 different maternity shirts (and I literally had none before). SCORE.
- Bluewater Mission Sermons
If anyone is looking into some quality sermon podcasts, I’ve begun listening to pastor Jordan Seng at Bluwater Mission church in Hawaii.
- Movie in the Park
My favorite part of L.A. summers (via Eat.See.Hear). Went to “Princess Bride” a few weeks ago and loved it… as for our next film: “500 Days of Summer”. Cannot WAIT.
- Kid’s CamelBak
Nick & I both agreed this is one of the best purchases we’ve made this year for Josh. He lovesssssss his CamelBak and drinks a ton of water now.
- “No Fits Nilson!”
Josh’s favorite book (currently). Requests it every single night. This book has inadvertently taught me some things about handling tantrums with toddlers.
FYI: Nick and I have done a lot of eating out the past month… mostly in part to our new apartment being right by “little saka” which is mini Japan Town here in West LA. We’re walking distance from some top notch Asian restaurants and had to try out all the new spots nearby!
- Tsujita LA
Best ramen I’ve ever had. It’s the dipping ramen kind (tsukemen). We were dying to try it based off the crazy reviews and the never-ending line that they literally ALWAYS have. Nick and I can’t stop talking about it. Sounds exaggerative, but it’s really not.
- Seoul Sausage Co.
We got their flaming rice ball, Korean animal style fries & poutine (on two different occasions)…. So so SO yummy. An explosion of flavor in your mouth. A bit overpriced (for the amount of food you get), but definitely tasty. Lives up to the high # & rating of yelp reviews.
- B SWEET
We got the salted caramel bread pudding (small size) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top to share. We were both in heaven. It’s really sweet but so so yummy. And the perfect size to share. Most people get it for themselves, but I think it’s better with another person.
- Coffee Tomo
Got their famous “tomo latte”, which is essentially a latte with sweetened condensced milk. The environment is a really great place to do some work or reading. And the latte was so so good. Overpriced… but delicious.
- “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake
And no, it has not gotten old 🙂
- The Bachelorette
Because I can’t not. And I think JoJo is a great choice for bachelorette (she’s half Persian btw… I’m sure I’ve already told you). The season premiere was so-so but second episode was super entertaining… quality girls night event.
What are you into this month?
