I just want to tell you guys about the great week I’m having. It involves:

A. Game of Thrones– So I’m not usually into the whole medieval knights and queen shenanigans, but my roommate basically told me that I could slap her if I didn’t like it by the time I caught up to the third season. I figured anyone willing to place a slap on the face wager must be really confident, so I logged into HBO GO on my Xbox and ended up spending 10 hours the first day just shuffling through the first season. I was hooked before I could even blink. I’m actually anxiously writing this post because I want to lay in bed like a potato and finish the second season.


(P.S., doesn’t Khaleesi look like Sherry from YHL‘s doppelgänger?)


B. School– I’m officially enrolled in my Fall ’13 dietetics classes and anyone living in California knows how much of a relief off the shoulders it is. It’s so hard to get classes in this state, no matter how much you’re willing to pay! Final grades also came out and I am more than relieved at my final GPA. Maybe the dietetics internship won’t be so hard if I continue to do as well as I’m doing now. πŸ™‚

C. Acupuncture– Jacq started going to a community acupuncture place in SF and raved about it. I’ve always wanted to try so I tagged along last week for my first time to give it a go. I am pretty much in love with it. I don’t know if it’s placebo or not, but I’m feeling a lot better as an individual (after my second time!) and will continue to go once a week. Plus, I love the center that I go to, the team is great and I always feela t peace and enjoy my adult nap time.


After our acupuncture session, our stomachs agreed that Green Chile Kitchen across the street sounded amazing.

(The fireman driving told me he wanted to be in my picture!)


I thought it was a chain at first because it kind of had that franchise feel to it, but I figured out that they only have one location. I liked how they set up the interior, nice and spacey with many seats for me to choose from.


Usually when the server/cashier asks me if I want anything to drink, I get water with lemon. However, she pointed out the green chile lemonade and I obliged.


I also didn’t regret it.

Can’t wrap my head around how people can hold off on the guac and chips when they eat at a Mex restaurant.


I don’t know who Mary is, but her rotisserie chicken was amazing. Green chile citrus rub, beans, rice, tortillas and salsa and side salad.


Jacq, my little vegetarian, had a quinoa and kale salad that I was actually very envious of. It’s literally picture perfect.


I’m really sad to write this post, because Jacq is leaving to Connecticut to finish up her wedding planning this week and I won’t see her until her wedding in August. Then, I have to wait for her to go on an African honeymoon to follow the great migration (jealous, much?) and come back when the school year starts. I’ll see you when you are a Mrs., Jacq! xx

What’s your views on acupuncture if you tried it? Any wedding plans knocking on your door?

  1. Green chile lemonade??! I didn’t even know that existed, but it sounds so good!

    I’ve never tried acupuncture, but I’m intrigued by it! Though I admit it gives me the shivers a bit – probably because it involved needles which aren’t exactly my best friends πŸ˜‰

  2. One – your pictures are quite stunning. You are a photographer, for sure, and I don’t doubt that firemen wanted to be in your picture! Also, not sure how people pass on guac either. They should be ashamed! I love Game of Thrones too! I was late to the party on that one but was instantly hooked. What is it about that show that has me going crazy while they’re on hiatus every Sunday night? πŸ™‚

  3. Mm all that food looks delish! I wasn’t sure about Game of Thrones until my boyfriend sat me down (for the love of dragons!) and made me watch it – now I’m already excited at potentially going home tonight to watch the new episode, absolutely addicted πŸ˜‰ I’ve never tried acupuncture (but have actually done a course in giving it!) but my mum utterly swore by it when she injured herself, I would definitely be tempted to give it a whirl if it wasn’t too pricey!
