Asian Craze

nick is not a big fan of Asian food to say the least. he has to
prepare himself if we ever decide to go to Chinese or sushi etc...
but lately
that is all we have been eating! i know weird! good for me
though because he rarely lets me indulge my love.

first. The Thai House in Lehi.
loved it!!!
the restaurant is set in someone's old house.
it has a beautiful big fireplace, but the lighting is
horrible. i think there was one guy running the
whole, serving, cooking, busing...
the food was delicious! I recommend the

thai fresh spring rolls (appetizer)
steam buns (a little weird.)

musaman curry(entree)
panang curry
pad thai noodles
green curry(really spicy)
thai fried rice

mango sticky rice (dessert)
not as good as Benja's

i recommend this restaurant to thai lovers! i am
becoming a LOVER!

next. Thaifoon Taste of Asia at the Gateway
it is a little more pricey than Thai House, but
the ambiance is a lot better. (Sexy)

lettuce rolls (appetizer)
tuna roll-delicious...i love tempura

evil jungle princess (entree)
the only curry they had but awesome
pad thai noodles
thai house has better
i forgot the last thing we got but it had green beans.
it was amazing!

mango & strawberry rice (dessert)

last. PF Changs
i know everyone has eaten here and knows what is
good and what is not. but we ate here two weeks in
a row so why not.

i love their lettuce rolls and am obsessed with
the crab won tons.

we have been loving the crispy honey chicken
but be careful when eating... i got a few tendons blah!

the sesame chicken is super tasty

kung pao chicken was a little dry and not
much pao!

for dessert the chocolate cake is delicious and also
the banana spring rolls are muah!

to end the asian month with a bang i catered an
engagement party and the bride's favorite food was

menu consisted of...
thai beef salad
maple soy salmon
bahn mi crustinis
chicken satay with peanut sauce
mango sticky rice

can you believe all the asian in one month!
nick is such a good sport. i will have to eat a lot
of italian and mexican from now on to make
it up to him

nights are getting pretty boring without my man

so i work in the mornings and nick works at night. i pretty
much hate this arrangement. i come home from work, say
hi, then bye, and have the whole night to myself. i try to think
of cool stuff to do to keep me busy and productive, but my
house can only be cleaned so much, and i tried running, but
i hate it!!! my toes are always painted now, i am reading a lot!
i am doing my internship right now which combines work
and school and i was used to having my days chuck full.
we are moving in a month so getting another job would be
pointless. any suggestions on what you stay at home momma's
do? i think i am a workaholic, or i have A.D.D.

i hope hope hope

they play this one at the concert. my most favorite would be

"not tonight"

but this one gives me a feeling. they are super artistic so who

knows the deeper meaning behind this video.

baby alessia

picture from our wedding

It's our little Alessia's birthday today! We love this
little munchkin so so much!

The Kirchhausen's came up this weekend for Dance
Sport and it was so much fun. We made forts, went to
build-a-bear, watched super sassy ballroom dancing,
and went to Nickel-Cade.

We can't wait for them to come back in a couple weeks

cafe love

We are suckers for ambiance and Nordstrom Cafe Bistro has
sexy ambiance.
As much as I love Nordstrom
I had never eaten there until last week.
It was awesome!
We had just eaten a couple of hours before so we shared
an arugula chicken pizza. The Pomme Frites (french fries)
were SO good dipped in their kalamata tapenade.
Our friends got the Cuban sandwich (my favorite sandwich!)
and the turkey club. Their turkey club has green beans in it!
Crazy! But Cool!
Definitely going to shop at the Fashion Place Nordstrom so
I can visit the Cafe Bistro a little more often.

So for my B-day my lover boy surprised me with Tegan & Sara

I love love him!

It gives me tinglies just thinking of the moment I will see them
live! I am obsessed!

Gino Baby

Gino and Larry (may he rest)! Poor Lar was so tormented by Gino. All my babe wants is a best friend but he couldn't seem to convince Lar.

I cannot say enough about how much I love love my family.
They are by far the #1 most important thing in my life
and that is how it will be forever. We went up there again this
weekend so I could teach a cooking class and to celebrate my birthday.

I will post pics from the class soon. It was so much fun!

My mom made my favorite meal and the mango sticky
rice from Benja's. It was to die for. Thanks mom!

So we have this tradition that is getting more and more
embarrassing the older I get. We go around the
room and say what we love about the birthday person.
Everyone said the nicest things about me and so now
I think I want to write one thing about each person in my
family that I love the most! Of course there is a million
reasons why I love each one of them but I will try
and narrow it down.

I love how full of energy you are. I love that every
person you develop a relationship with, wishes
you were their dad. So many people tell me how lucky I
am to have you as my dad and I could not agree more.
My dad is friends with all of my friends and it makes us
all a big happy family.

I don't even know where to start. I am so blessed to have
my mother in my life. I call her everyday and she is really
my best friend. She knows how to handle any situation
and helps me through some traumatic ones.
(I am a pretty dramatic girl). She gives me a sense of comfort
that no else can give me. I love you mom.

My best girlfriend! I don't think I go a day without
talking to her. Seriously I am not much of a phone talker but
I can't go a day without venting to her and hearing what
is going on in her life. We laugh and cry together.
When she is sad, I am sad. When her heart is broken,
my heart is broken. She drives to my house about
twice a week even if we have nothing to do.
As long as we are together, we feel happy.

Jeddy (Elder Sexy Prince):
Jed used to pin me down and wouldn't let
me up until I called him a "Sexy Prince" ha ha ha.
He is on his mission in Alabama right now. I love
him so much. He is the best example of who I want to be.
He is so Christlike. He sees the good in everyone.
I think everyone thinks Jed is their best friend because of
how he makes you feel when you are with him. He can
make me laugh like no one else can. All the sisters
just adore him. He has been a perfect brother.

Erin (The Baby):
Oh my favorite rasta hippie chick! I don't know where
she got her chillness because the rest of us are pretty intense.
I love Er bear because she is such a sweet person inside
and out. She has the best heart. She has the most gorgeous
long blonde hair. She drives the boys crazy! She laughs
at everything I say and makes me feel really funny.
She has the most adorable laugh. She is the perfect "baby"
for our family.

I love Gino because he is my baby. He loves me
unconditionally. He makes me smile by just looking at him.
I love him because he can't bark, cry or jump. (He is special)

Nicholas Jay:
I saved the best for last. My baby Nicky!
I really believe that Heavenly Father has a plan for
us and makes sure we follow our plan. I was going
to go to Utah State after my first year at Dixie
to attend their culinary program. That year they
had decided to discontinue their program
so I stayed at Dixie another year. After I graduated,
I decided to stay in St. George for the summer for some reason.
I met Nick in May. CRAZY! I am so grateful I
followed my plan and was there to meet the love of my life!
I love our life together and who we are together.
I love our goals and how he makes me feel. He is so handsome.
I am seriously the luckiest girl ever! I could go
on forever but I will save it for another day.
I am in love with Nicholas Jay Scano!

I Love My Family!
