Top & Dress: Forever 21

Never thought I'd be a girl who'd wear two things from the same place, but it happens every now and then. This is what I wore yesterday to celebrate the near end of summer and to attend a special event. I've owned this dress since 2OO8 and it's become one of my favorites. The top fits me a bit baggy, and I get that that's the style, but baggy tops like that make me look like an oval, so I decided to tie it around my waist. ♡ Hahah

I'm wearing some blue Keds with this outfit, but they're a bit faded so I decided to exclude those. c;

I CUT MY BANGS!!
I've been growing them out for almost a year, but I couldn't continue because I was starting to miss my old ones! I've had bangs since a toddler, and I got my first short bangs (above the eyebrow) in 8th grade. I know a lot of people dig the Bettie Page look, but I just believe that short bangs compliment my face better than really long ones. They also make me look wayyy younger! o.~

Yesterday was the 73rd wedding anniversary of my mama Lola and papa Miguel, the parents of my dad. Because of their age (91 and 94) they couldn't have the ceremony in church, so they had a priest come to their home and do the ceremony there.
About three people from each generation of the family went up to say something about them, and I was extremely hesitant at first, but my husband knows how much they mean to me and insisted I go up and say something. So I held in my tears and walked up to say a few words. Sure enough, those crocodile tears started to pour out but I told them how they're my only family and thanked them for giving me my father because he was a good dad. (r.i.p)
I gave them hugs and kisses, and walked back to my seat with great relief and happiness.
I always loved hearing stories from my grandparents, both from my mom's side and my dad's.
Mama Lola and papa Miguel married in 1941, but they dated for two years. However, back in the day parents wouldn't allow their daughters to speak to or see their boyfriends, so my grandparents would send letters to one another for two years, and they were neighbors! I find it so sweet how after 12 kids and 73 years later they continue to have love for one another. My grandpapa has such a witty sense of humor and jokes with my grandma, but he's still a gentleman and offers her a seat and moves the seat closer to his. I love my grandparents, and one day I'll show you guys my mama Maria (r.i.p) and my papa Chon, parents of my mom.
Hope everyone keeps enjoying the last of their 3-day weekend.♥

¡Oh my crust! Mr. Pizza review.

While walking through Little Tokyo for some Pinkberry, my husband and I stopped in the middle of our tracks to drool over pizza posters from a restaurant called Mr. Pizza.

Although we decided to continue our way to Pinkberry, we went to Mr. Pizza two days later. As my first time eating Korean pizza, I wasn't sure what to expect.

They have two vegetarian pizzas, one with veggies and one with cheese. However, they also have vegetarian sides like cheese sticks and potatoes (just say without bacon). We ordered a regular size veggie pizza (8 slices) with gold/ sweet potato crust and potatoes with bacon on the side for my husband.

The veggie pizza comes with onions, corn, peppers, mushrooms, red peppers, and olives. The potatoes are baked with cheese in the center and bacon sprinkled on top with a buttermilk dip, but you can always tell them to not add meat.

Pizza wise, it was delicious, but not better or worse than other pizzas I've eaten. What does beat other pizzas is the golden crust with soft, yummy sweet potato inside! The baked potatoes were amazing too; I'd say that they're better than any others I've tried. All in all, the best of this meal was the potatoes and pizza crust! The potatoes were unfortunately so good that I forgot to take a photo. ;c

If you're a lover of pizza crust or sweet potatoes, then I recommend you look for a Mr. Pizza around your area. The crust is definitely worth it and the pizza is good as well!

And time never stops.

Seems like a lifetime since my last post. I had nothing but unexpected events these past four days, even the Internet wasn't working! ;_____;

My husband and I helped his sister move into her new home last week. We packed, unpacked, and reassembled furniture. That same week we moved our things into our new bedroom. Since my husband is recording music, he had to soundproof the walls (which will probably be ready by next week). I realized that once completed, the bedroom will unintentionally look like a work room inside an art gallery. Heck, I might just do a "tour" of my room blog post. c;

New posts are on their way too, and this coming week will be no disappointment. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. The next thing I'm looking forward to is starting my fall semester on the 2nd of September!
