Bob's Shanghai

We had dinner at Bob's last night and Fuchiko (and Mr. P) tagged along. I must admit that it was quite embarrassing taking the photos (the place was crowded and we were literally 3 inches away from the next table). I will have to reconsider taking her to crowded restaurants.

Bubble Mania

I am currently addicted to bubble tea and bubble mania (the game). I can't stop playing the game and I can't stop craving the drink. HELP!!

IN N OUT

 
We visited IN-N-OUT and look at their prices! Still the same! (I think...)

Mr. P got the double double and fries. Did you know that they also have monster style french fries? It's not on the menu, but you can supposedly "secretly" order it.

Bubba Gump

Have you been to Bubba Gump? I just recently watched Forrest Gump on TV, so all the detailing was so much fun!

This is the waiting line - you stand behind the smiley face.

Toms and Mr. P's new friend

I finally got a pair of TOMS for the fall season. When these first came out, I knew they were the next uggs. Ugly and you know it....but you still end up buying a pair!

Mr. P also met up with a friend over the weekend.

Is this a lizard or a gecko?

Nordstrom Cafe

Did anyone know that Nordstrom had a dining cafe? I think I fell in love with it last night!
It's a self-serve, order and bring to table style of cafe, but there are people who bring your bread and refill your water. 

I ordered the shrimp and asparagus risotto- it was delicious! But the portion was so small (in my opinion), I could have had 2 plates...

And then I went for the creme brulee.

Do you see the vanilla bean specks? I think I would have been freaking out if I didn't know what vanilla bean was. I only found out about it 9 years ago :P

Cute Toasters = Cutesters!

These toasters are the cutest, and I bet kids will definitely finish their piece of bread! Or maybe they'll think it's too cute to eat....
Of course, Hello Kitty...

Awww...I miss Disney World :-)

Pooh and Piglet

And Darth Vader for all the Star Wars fan!

Pizza Pizza!

Did anyone miss me while I was gone on my post-summer break? I just wanted to share with you a fun pizza story....it's pretty long, so stay with me :-)

The husband found a new pizza place, so we definitely had to check it out (being the self-proclaimed pizza lovers we are). We checked out the yelp reviews and recommendations and decided to get these fried risotto balls.

Which were balls of heaven with little pieces of mozarella inside.........droool
I was going to get the vongole pizza, and because I get flustered when approached with a menu, I always try to decide what I'm going to order beforehand through their homepage. But our waitress says they are out of cockles...........so I look through the menu and just randomly choose anything that has prociutto. The husband orders the margherita (because he's boring, or "original" as he puts it).  

A different waiter brings us our food, and ta-da! there are meatballs on both of them! Husband asks the waiter "Is this margherita pizza?" And the waiter nods and gives a "No-duh, that's what you ordered dummy"-look. In the meantime, I am busy quickly snapping away photos with Mr. P (I must admit, I take photos of Mr. P at the speed of light because of the embarassment...)

My pizza has prosciutto~ I definitely ordered the right one! But I open it and it has meatballs...so I tell my husband that the chef must love his meatballs. While I try to slice open my pizza, our waitress comes to us and says that there was a mix up and that these pizza are not ours, but the couple sitting right next to us...........I can't stop laughing, and we apologize to the couple for attacking their pizzas, and they laugh it off too~ We really felt so stupid because the couple (not the chef) both loved the meatballs so much that they had placed an extra topping order of it.

This is our actual pizza -but my pizza didn't look anything like the one I got before because the prosciutto was "prosciutto cotto" not "prosciutto di parma".

But the husband's was just sans meatball. Less embarassing for him since he even asked the waiter! And yes, the first pizza was margherita, just with extra meatballs.

Our waitress was really nice and asked us if we would like to take the first pizzas home, so of course we had to bring it back with us, and the leftover pizza too. What a feast!
