10 Things I Can't Wait To Do in SF! Part II

Just wanted to do an update on this... make sure I'm putting enough time into my personal goals. I totally didn't even notice that I numbered this wrong the first time. And, note to self: take more pictures!!

10. Go to the Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building and pick up some fresh flowers & baguettes! I'm actually dying to go to the Fresh Flower Market!
9. Replacing That Takes the Cake with a trip to Carmel by the Sea in Monterey! It looks dreamy!
8. Binge on an In-N-Out Burger! Animal style! Nom nom! Nom nom indeed when B came to visit 05.12
7. Hunt for the yummiest egg tart and pork buns in San Francisco's Chinatown! Must make an attempt #2!
6. Stroll across the Golden Gate Bridge. :)
5. Find a pilates class or a tennis court so I can stay fit! I found the perfect workout! Now I just have to get myself to go! :P [still not accomplised, bleh]
4. Take a class at the Culinary Institute in Napa. Mmm!
3. Create some DIY art for my future apartment. [can't wait to show you this upcoming DIY! withheld it from my design inspiration series & keeping it a surprise hehe]
2. I still haven't ridden a cable car yet! Got to do this with Little! ♥ 05.04
1. Spend a day at the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park. Done! With my other half & Kx2 over Memorial Day weekend!

Bonus: Maybe try learning some samba or rhumba! Totally not realistic but I can dream. :)

10 Lessons for the Kitchen

  1. Vietnamese Curry
  2. Thai Pad See Ew -- one of my faves!
  3. Korean Ddukbbokki
  4. Hollandaise Sauce & Poached Eggs
  5. Vietnamese Spring Rolls -- sometimes I think I want pho just so I can get this as an appetizer
  6. Moules Frites a la Leon de Bruxelles
  7. Camarones al Ajillo a la Cafecito -- I cannot find a recipe for anything like this!! :(
  8. Kimchi Bokkeumbap -- I just can't seem to get this one right. Hmmph.
  9. Baguettes -- how awesome would it be to have warm, homemade bread fresh out of the oven!
  10. Tarte Aux Pommes

Some foods only taste yummy when you're out eating, the food's tastes are somehow enhanced by the atmosphere. But some foods are soo yummy that you want it all the time and you'll do anything to figure out how to make it for whenever your tummy might fancy. And for some of these, it seems to be a mother's touch that make these dishes perfect. :)

Taylor Inspired

Still looking for a dress for Biggie's Hawaiian wedding... came across these two looks that reminded me of InStyle's Look of the Day. Her shoes look similar to the nude heels I was planning on wearing and I love the look combined with soft chiffon & a pretty flower in her hair.

Also liking this one, in my latest favorite color -- the one on the left.
