MEANWHILE, IN CHINATOWN . . .

over thanksgiving when all my family was in town, brandon and brother-in-law zach took huck and cousin teddy on a little bro-venture down to chinatown, destination: chicken feet (and other boy nonsense). it turned into this epic afternoon of chinatown discovery and brandon hasn't stopped talking about it since. as soon as the weather warmed up he wanted take me to retrace their steps, so on saturday we did it. i mean, it wasn't warm or anything but march and i are trying to make peace with each other. 

 p.s. special mention this weekend goes to these dark chocolate marshmallows i found at zabars on friday because they have been blowing our ever loving miiiiiinds.

  3. can you try acupuncture for you beauty experiment ? This lady in my ward keeps telling me it will make it easier to get pregnant. I don't know if I believe her, but I thought it would fit well into your beauty experiment...and who knows she might be right.

  7. Your weekend looks awesome. Even if it was cold. I'll take New York at any weather. And I've NEVER (gasp) explored China Town when I've visited. Next time.

  10. I rue that you were so close to Joe's Shanghai and yet there are not any soup dumplings in your story. It's one of the few things I really wish I lived in NY for.
