|WTF... my boyfriend.. ahem.. fiance (will post on this) is so effin' awesome to me I don't even know where to begin. And I don't write xanga enough to keep you all up to date. So commence of my SUPER long and super vomit worthy because it's so sweet post. |
Btw, fiance is like a magic word. I call him that and he'll do ANYTHING I ask. *scratch head* Not that he didn't before. Hahahahaha I must have been a saint in my past life to have a guy like this in my current life time.
Last weekend I had a Saturday wedding in Monterey and then a Sunday wedding in Napa. They're like 4 hours away from each other so I asked Wonton (then boyfriend) to drive me, even though he lives in Seattle. After my Monterey wedding we went to Monterey Fisherman's Wharf and spent the day enjoying some beautiful weather!
Famous for their Monterey Clam Chowder!
I like yobo (still boyfriend) because he lets me order for both me AND him. So I can eat all my favorite foods! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE seafood!
So happy to eat a whole crab! Obviously just posing with a fork because everyone knows you eat crab with your bare hands!
Wonton (still boyfriend) not enjoying crab as much as me.
Sorry, don't know how to flip photo. Anyways... candy apple to end the day in Monterey.
Then we drove for 5 hours because of traffic to get to Napa. I slept for 4 hours in the backseat of the car. Why yobo decided he still loves me at this point is a mystery to me!
After my Napa wedding we had lunch in Yountville and got tricked into eating at the stupid Bouchon bakery that charged us $15 extra to substitute some stupid nasty trouffle fries that I did not even eat because I did not like. But if I knew they were going to charge me $15 EXTRA to SUBSTITUTE, I would have shove those damn things down my throat. Lol Won says I am strangely really cheap about really weird things.
It ended up being a 3 hour drive back home from Napa because of the traffic. Did I sleep in the back seat again. Oh yes. Then I woke up all pissed off because why was it taking so long to get home and Won was all cool beans about it even though he was the one doing all the driving while his girlfriend drooled in her sleep in the backseat.
Then not even a week later my mom went on a week and a half long vacation and I am too pansy to stay home alone so I flew to Seattle where I was super pampered by Won's mom. Then halfway through the week, Won flew back to San Francisco with me. I LOVE flying with him! It's rare that we get to do it because we live in different states to begin with. But it's such a treat when we do! I don't have to carry anything and because his space is shared space, I get extra space on the airplane. Hehe.
In San Francisco we went to the After Dark event at the science museum, Exploratorium.
This is us "expressing" our emotions scientifically or something, I think.
This is Won drinking out of a toilet because it's creepy. Hehe
This is me and Won sitting in different size chairs. So sciency!
My boyfriend/future husband only ask that I cook him home-cooked meals as much as possible. What's easier than "cooking" hot pot?! Hahaha
All joking aside.. cooking is A LOT of work. I kept calling my mom during her vacation to ask her a million questions. Lol. The pictured above is one of my more successful meals. The other meal included tricking my friends into a "dinner party" in which they had to do all the cooking. Then once I did not buy any of the right ingredients to make salmon so I just made shit up and instead of a honey glazed salmon I had salmon swimming in a sugary brown water. Lol. But Won still ate it all up! <3
At the end of the week of us pretending we live together for reals yobo took me on a little weekend getaway to cure me of a depression I was going through a few months back.
He booked us a private suite on the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay property. Everyone kept joking that this would be the proposal because the vacation he booked was soooooo gahdamn expensive for all the special treatment. It was supposed to be a surprise but I somehow found out about it so he had to spill all the beans.
The weather was perfect to enjoy on our private little patio!
Dinner time! Okay so I did a little more snooping and I guessed that Won really was going to propose. But then he got really careful and so there were no more trails to follow and I didn't want to expect it and then be all butt hurt about it. So I decided I would just enjoy this special treat as a nice romantic getaway, which of course will be just one of many (you hear that?!) But he kept insisting I should get my hair done. And he took me dress shopping, he normally would never take me shopping. And he waited patiently while I did my nails and my makeup, never once rushing me (like he normally does). All so suspicious!
Chips and salsa appetizers. Classy! Haha I kid, it was some special tuna tar tar overnighted from Hawaii or something.
This little leaf is called Hearts on Fire. To you know, get the romance going.
Virgin drinks. Oh btw, our whole meal including drinks were specially customized to our taste by the restaurant chef. I felt like such a bitch telling him to change the menu 3 times. It was like, no I don't want to eat heirloom tomatoes, no I don't want to eat pasta, no I don't want to eat this and that and drink this and that and blah blah blah. Won did all the email exchanging the weeks prior. I'm sure he did not make me sound like a bitch. Hahahaha
At this point dinner was like over 2 hours long because it was a tasting menu and I was pretty damn tired. And Won would NOT stop checking his work emails on his blackberry. And my lashes were too heavy and my contacts were dry and my dress was too tight. And I was getting so damn irritable. I yelled at Won that if he checked his BB ONE MORE DAMN TIME. But he said it was really important because it was a last surprise for me. So I got super suspicious and was SURE someone was going to march in with a parade and he would get down on one knee.
But alas, the restaurant staff started packing up the table and chairsand even Won was getting tired and so I was like.. damnit!
Classy. I'm tired. Let's go home before I start crying from how tired I am.
Won trying to keep my spirits up and beg me to stay awake for one more surprise. I said no. Pack up the rest of the desserts because we are going home.
We escorted back to our suite and OMFG!!!
Won walks me down the aisle into our little patio. I hear giggling and I realize my cousins/best friends are hiding behind some furniture filming us!!
Tada!!!! Lol I could tell Won (still boyfriend) was soooo nervous. He stepped on candles. He mumbled so fast and when he got on his knee, he jumped up as soon as I said yes. The ring box was upside down. He tried to put it on my right hand. Then he fumbled so much I had to put the ring on myself. In our 3 years together I've never ONCE seen him at all fazed by ANYTHING except that night. Hahahaha. Oh wells, who cares!?!?! It was soooo effin sweet!
Apparently he had been planning this for months. And he drafted my cousins into this scheme. He even made her go check out the property to make sure it was nice enough. They ordered all the supplies. He told the front desk about them so they could be let into our room to decorate while we were at dinner. And now it's all on video for us to watch forever!!
Here are some shots of what was around our room.
Damnit! I really wish I knew how to rotate pictures on xanga!
They were all in cahoots about it together. My cousins did SUCH a good job keeping it away from me, even when I was telling them about the trip they acted like I was telling them for the first time even though they were planning it behind my back all along! Hahahaha
Afterwards enjoying some smores, he said he was soooo emotionally drained. LOL!!! Poor guy (who is now my fiance!)
The next day we head out to my hair appointment, stopping for some classy breakfast on the way.
All back to black! So boring! But at least healthy looking. I started getting color and highlights about 6 months back. Then a month ago I got a digital perm and my hair was FRIED. I thought it looked okay but I just could not deal with the tangling. Won tried to comb my hair for me after a shower and it took him over an hour to detangle! I decided to color it black and chop off the dead ends. Major hair therapy. I did all this while Won went and got my car fixed! Princess treat for life!
For dinner we took my cousins out to Espestus, a nice Brazilian style steakhouse as a thank you for making our proposal so magical!
Meat on a sword anyone? 13 different kinds of meats!
Big ole cow ribs. How weird there is a picture of a cow on top.
Thank you my most loved friends and family! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
