Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

The Greek Life

Cause I love anything Greek way too much

Hello, sweets!! Guess what?? We had the Friday night off again!! I can’t help but find it funny because a couple of days ago I was just gushing about our Friday date night back in Summer…and now we were able to do it again this Fall. YAY! Last night was ahmaaahzing! It was not like our Woodberry date night but A gave me new memories to cherish. what we did is somewhat related to what I will be talking about in a while…GREEK! I am so happy that I am here for the Greek Festival this year,and that we were able to go and eat delicious Greek food…..and have fun with our friends after! I  couldn’t think of any other way to celebrate our Fall Friday Date Night  than how we spent it last night.

I compiled all the Greek related photos that I have on my computer to make a decent Greek related post. A couple of days ago, I told A and his Mom that I am happy that they celebrate a lot of traditions. That we always have something to look forward to and feel grateful for each day.

The Greek Life is more than just lemons, feta cheese, and olive oil. I think one of the reasons why I am very excited to marry A is because his values are the same as mine.

 To start this entry…. I will talk about me! HAHA

So I finally got a haircut after 4 months of being back here in Baltimore. I am always afraid to go for a trim (even though mah girl LC says that we should !) I’ve had my fair share of annoying “my hair is way tooo short moments” so yeaaap, it usally takes me a while to go back. haha

Anyway, so I went to the salon a couple of hours before our drive to New Jersey, and after an hour of hair treatment and a long chat with the hairdresser, I did not notice time and I was already outside the salon so no blow dry for me!! Haha The lady did not want to let me leave with wet hair so she did this for me! #LoveIt

Main reason for our trip to New Jersey: Chinese feast!!!! Haha joke. Father’s Day!! (see how late this post is!)

Asian City is one of the best Chinese restaurants here in the US. We don’t have a lot of good restaurants that serve authentic style Chinese food here in Baltmore, and we always find something amazing up in New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York. A is willing to drive all the way to those states just to get his awesome Chinese food fix.

I mean….look at this delicious fried lobster that we always order when we go to Asian City! It’s to delicious we can’t even….. haha

The day after Father’s day we went to Philadelphia for an extended celebration.

Still Greek related because it’s about our Greek Dad haha

Philadelphia is either Chinese food or Cheesesteak to us….and we only go to the best for our cheesesteak fix!

To end my post….here’s what cooking at New Jersey looks like. Well A lets me relax and he cooks with his Dad, which is always awesome! 🙂

New Jersey to me is seafood time! We always get clams from their local vendor 🙂
