Blue Stripes & Pink Clutch

It's been a rather whirlwind week as D came back home! He arrived a day early while I was eating with my good guy friend, B at Uchi's. I was a bit torn between catching up with B and wanting to rush over to see D asap as he's been gone twice as long as was originally expected; however, I finished out the delicious dinner with B and watched an episode of HIMYM (How I Met Your Mother) at his apartment before meeting up with my boyfriend.  

If you haven't eaten at Uchi's, I highly recommend it! I will definitely have a post shortly about the yummy foods we tried out! Not only was it a great eating experience, it was an equally exceptional dining experience (i.e. service was top rate!).

Bag fetish like Mommy!

If you don't know this already, I adore my Kchan. I don't exactly spoil her rotten though my mom likes to protests otherwise. Most people who don't like cats; however, don't mind Kchan. A few that don't have any real fondness for felines really really like Kchan. I guess it's because even though she's a cat, she acts quite like a dog in some respects?

Early on, I reinforced good behavior in her. I don't let her scratch people or furniture (she has her specific carpets and scratching toys); I don't let her bite; I don't let her whine and get what she wants, unless she's politely reminding me to feed her before I leave for work!

What I noticed (which may or may not be true of all pets) is that Kchan resembles me in a lot of ways. She's mellow, likes to get her way but isn't too petulant when she doesn't, and she's definitely nice to you when she wants something... LOL. And she has a bit of a bag fetish...

Pretty in Pink & Linen Shorts

Thanks for all your kind words in the last post (when I was talking about doctors being humans too!), I really appreciate it! It's been a rather tough week or so as D has been off traveling the world again on business and he's had to stay longer than expected. The entire time we've been together, it's been one thing after another. I suppose all that we've been through has brought us closer, but I wish things could be easier and we could have some normalcy (he agrees frankly).

As with all couples, we have our issues but as I've grown older (and matured), I've learned to communicate how I feel. I try not to tell my boyfriend what to do, what to think, what to feel... he should want to do what he does for me because he wants to. That said, despite the difficulties, I'm glad he asked me for my number!

Doctors are Humans Too!

On my way to work, as I drive an average of about 60 miles round trip, I think about a lot of nothing and sometimes ideas of substance. I think about what I did wrong at work, what I can do better, about how I find myself frustrated at my patients and how they don't understand that I am not a robot --- I have feelings too like them because I'm human too.

Busy, busy weekend!

My boyfriend, D left again for another business trip this weekend and I was left to my own devices... where I caught up with an old guy friend, A on Saturday and had a lovely day of brunch and shopping on Sunday with S. My OOTDs were all various creations that you've already seen so this time I'll concentrate on FOOD (which I've sadly neglected!).

I'll start with Rattan, an Asian fusion restaurant and wine bar, where I feasted on a Kobe Beef Hot Dog! It was as good as A said it was going to be and definitely something I wouldn't mind having again. The meat was tasty without being too salty and was topped with a nice punch of onions and tomatoes on pretzel bread!

lette macarons from LA

As you know, I'm dating D... and I guess with all that has happened in the several weeks we've been an item, I finally felt like his girlfriend when he brought me home a little something from LA. I had mentioned a time or two that what I miss most about NYC was being able to get macarons because they simply aren't available around where I live (at least the quality I'm used to). 

The macarons he brought back were really yummy. D surprised me by handing me a cute chartreuse gift box when I picked him up at the airport.  He was slightly bashful about it? Prefacing that he had gotten me these because they were supposedly the best in LA, but he didn't know how they'd compare to the ones I'd had in NYC.  Admittedly, I was a bit crabby because I'd had a trying weekend (and had just spent a small fortune to fly to my cousin's wedding at the end of June), so he's like "I'm going to open this and give you one and it'll make you feel better."

Ribbon tank & Kimono cardigan

This weekend has been pretty darn busy. I kicked start it by doing a 5k charity walk Saturday morning for NAMI (National Association for Mental Illness) where I raised $155. Then because it was hot and because I stupidly didn't drink enough water, I was dehydrated with a headache and pretty nauseated for several hours afterwards. I rested while waiting for S to finish up with all her volunteering commitments (I need to be more like her!) and originally she was going to meet up down where I live, but she finished so late and had had such a long day I drove to the Island to meet up with her instead. We ate dinner together and then went back to her condo for some girl talk!

That was the end of Saturday and I woke up extremely early on Sunday because I guess I'm just used to it. I had agreed to have beef noodle soup with W, a guy I had dated a while back but am still friends with. He recently moved into town and I had yet to hangout with him. We had a good time, caught up, and I got to see his new digs. His place is really nice and he seems quite settled in! Below is what I wore for lunch today and the top I wore the previous night with S. Still need to see A, a fellow co-res, for our "burger" time and then picking D up at the airport. What a busy, fun weekend!
