I Can Cook!!!

So.. since I moved to Cali and became a wife... I rarely cook. But tonight I proved Tuan that I really can cook! My friend and I cooked for her husband Eric and Tuan. We made lemon chicken stir-fry, bruschetta, and crab dip with veggies. It was DE-LISH! I was actually super proud of myself for cookinG it! We had a good time just chatting and hoping the guys would enjoy it. Bri decided she did NOT want me to cook what-so-ever... she cried and cried until I picked that little booger up! She has been under the weather with a minor respiratroy infection.. poor girl! I finally realized what staying up til wee morning hours trying to get her to sleep feels like... EXHAUSTING! I'm starting to feel it at the moment... super pooped out!

ONLY 16 DAYS TIL I'M IN MINNE!! I am soooooooo excited to see family and friends! I'm ready to see familiar faces and have a good time. Dad if you read this... I'm waiting for another car ride call! Its been a few days!

Well I guess thats about all for now... I know I am boring but just letting the world know whats up! ha! Miss all of u! See you soon!!!!!!

Oh Yea.. Here a few more pictures from the reception here in Cali.

As the wind blows...

So it was so windy out here in the desert, that there were warning signs on the freeway! Driving down the mnt seemed like driving up cuz it was so windy! This weekend we went down to the OC for a bit. We went and ate some craw fish again and then hit up Dave & Busters with Tuan's old HS friends. It was a good time, except that I wasn't feeling well. Sunday we went to eat some Pho, which is pretty much is vietnamese soup. It's pretty good!

So it's just about 20 some days until I am in Minne! I am soo excited!! Hopefully everyone will be around so we can get together for a good time! It's also about 2 and half months until we go to Germany!

Briahna took her first step on sunday!!! She has been trying to "walk" on her own for about a week now. Today, she finally moved a leg all on her own! Tuan, his mom, and I were all like screaming when she did that! So crazY how she is growing and learning! :D

Well it is Wednesday today! My internet has been down since Monday so I had to come to the Library to work on some school work! Everything has been going pretty good. Bri is doing her usual and being busy as always! She has been teething lately and is super fussy! Hopefully she will be feelin better soon! Well I don't have much to stay at the moment, in a rush! ha! see yA!

*Missing Everyone At Home*

Hello! Well, it is really starting to hit me! I am missing all the family and friends!! I think as time gets closer for me to leave for Germany, the more I miss everyone! I will be home in May though so I am super excited for that.

This weekend we went down to the OC. We went and ate some craw fish and went to Dave & Busters with some friends. It was pretty fun. Tuan and I played this horse racing game and we won like 10 times.. no one wanted to play against us after a while ha! On Sunday, I spent the day layin by the pool while Tuan got the car fixed. I am still paying for that sun. I am still a bit RED! :s Briahna got to spend the night with her other grandma. She seems to like it there and being able to play with her other cousins. :D Oh yea, i also got a new swimsuit..on clearance!!

Other than that, not much else is new around here. I'm still finishing up with all my schooling and such. Bri and I take walks now and than and plays on the playground when its not too windy. She is too cute! I will post a few new pictures up soon also. Well I'm having a brain fart at the moment so I'll write later! :D have a good day!

It's Finally Friday!

Hello again! Well, it is Friday! I had a more productive day today! I got some school work done and took Bri for a nice long walk. The weather was wonderful (much better than all the snow the minnesotan's are getting). This weekend we plan on going down the hill to Orange County. I really want to go to the beach and just lay in the sun! We will probably visit Tuan's mom. She really only cares to see the baby anyways :D. And of course we will go eat some craw fish. If you haven't had it, you should try it! Its de-lish! I added a few pictures on here. I will randomly change and add new ones now and then. I still need to add some new pictures onto my computer. And I NEED to fix my camer ASAP! I miss taking thousands of pictures! :D Well, this post is kind of boring but what can I say. Ha. Briahna decided to smush bananas all over her little body! So she took a bath and then decided to splash mommy with as much water as possiblE! She is changing everyday. She is starting to understand "no," which is a good thing at the moment. But I'm sure it will catch up to me when I don't want her saying "no" to me and Tuan. Oh well, but I guess... That's enough for now. Hopefully I will have something more exciting to write next time I'm around! :D Have a good weekend!!

Our Little Family

This is Tuan, Briahna, and I in Hollywood, CA. We went with my parents and a few friends. I will try to post up more pictures. But everyone knows how I am on posting and keeping in touch :D

Almost the weekend!

Hello! It is already Thursday and I haven't done anything this week. Well I did clean my house almost top to bottom! Amazing huh? Well I have been extremely ill for the past few days and have been glued to the couch! I hate being sick! Other than that, everything has been going wonderful here. Tuan was out in the field for a few days and is finally home. Briahna and I just hung out while he was gone. She is growing like you would not believe! She has 4 teeth and is about to get some more. She is going through her teething stages. I never knew she could be so fussy! But I love her to death. I love to sit and watch her play and learn. She seems so amazed with the littlest things. It is truly amazing! She, right now, is sitting and watching Mickey Mouse. She loves that show and loves the Hot Dog song. Grandpa listens to it just for her. Well I will write some more later. I am not feelin so hot at the moment. Talk later :-)
