05.2015 – The real adventure begins
Hello, dolls! Hello weeeekend! <3 June is such a special month for us now. Before June would just come and go, we do not plan anything big — just occasional weekends out of Baltimore and lots of eating out. June is sweeter and brighter now because of baby A. June is birthday month and I can’t wait to make it special for him every year! <3
There has a been a lot of good changes in our lives since A and I got married. I remember before, we settled for “dinners at home” once a week. We would eat out at least 3 times in a week. We spent more time at work and we were okay with it. We wanted to save money to buy a house, we achieved that in less than 10 months! After we bought our house, we welcomed baby A. In just a year and a half our lives became even better and our goals changed — for the best. Embracing dinners at home every night (well almost because we enjoy our weekends by eating out) almost 3 months ago was a change that we’ve been yearning for since baby A was born. I’ve been telling my Mom that it feels weird to think about dinner this much. Thank God she is here to help around the house, otherwise, I would lose my sanity.
Looking back to our first year as a married couple, I am happy with every choice that we’ve made.
Our first week back in Baltimore was pleasant. A and I did not have to deal with a lot of adjustments because we were going back to our “normal life” with rings on our fingers. So let me look back to a couple of fun memories from our first week as newlyweds in Baltimore.
We were still feeling a little adventurous since we just came back from the Philippines. We wanted to do something that would remind us of our trip so we went to Lexington Market — cheap simple food with a touch of adventure.
This..right here is what we call an “adventure”. Things that we don’t normally see at restaurants or groceries.
Short ribs… YAS!
Walking around Lexington Market was a bit overwhelming to me at first. Not because I am not used to the environment. There were so many good choices and I wanted to try them all.
Good food for cheap!
The main reason why we went to Lexington Market.
His agenda: tongue and chopped liver sammmich!
I love how most places sell smoothies!!
Wall Street Turkey
A definite must try, fried chicken! <3
Perfect place to go to when sick. Pho date with my man!! <3
Before baby A, I used to take gazillion pictures of A. Now, I hardly have any solo pictures of him on my phone! lol
One of my favorite things to do with him — grocery shopping! 🙂
Fun dinner with great friends!!! <3
After church brunch. Perfect food to eat after hearing mass? Spanakopita!
…and of course, I dragged him to the mall after brunch!lol
Memorial Day weekend in New Jersey <3
My first time to play mini golf!
Crepe for breakfast is always a good idea 😛
…and tacos for lunch? an even better idea! 😉
Can’t wait for our adventure this weekend!
