One of Melo’s friends is getting married next month and she was invited to a bridal shower this past weekend. It was one of those garden party pot-luck style showers (love those!) and she was asked to bring deviled eggs. Well it’s finals season for her, which means she’s sick. Which also means I had to make the deviled eggs; which I don’t mind.
I work in the Glendale/Pasadena area weekday afternoons, so a few weeks ago Melo and I decided to stay in the area for our date night.
Melo LOVES Thai food, so I surprised her by taking her to Daisy Mint, a Thai spot right off of Colorado Blvd near Cal Tech and not too far from Old Pasadena. This place is so adorable! The cozy interior actually reminded me a lot of my favorite brunch spot in Atlanta (you can read about it here). It’s very charming and quaint; perfect for a date!
One of our goals for this year is to do more Meatless Monday’s. Not only is it better for the environment, but better for your health, too. Every weekend we sit down to discuss what our week is going to look like so we can get our calendars in sync. We use that time to also decide on our meals for the week so we can be intentional about our eating habits.
I don’t know about you, but music is like water to my soul. I play it when I cook, when I clean, and when I’m breathing. We love listening to international music; it feeds our wanderlust and we get to daydream about far off places!
