We’re back in the Big D! After a 30 hour trip home….yes, 30 hours. We left Bangkok at 2:30 in the morning the 17th (which is about 2:30 in the afternoon on the 16th here)….flew 5 hours to Seoul, Korea where we had a 6 hour layover. Then we flew from Korea to LA which [...]
sticky rice with mango
I believe this is a pretty traditional thai dessert (at least in the north). It’s sticky rice with coconut milk and mango…it’s delicious! We haven’t been waiting to eat it for dessert we basically eat it whenever we see it. They also serve it with durian which is the infamous [...]
We made it! It was an incredibly long, sort of brutal trip. I watched 5 movies on the first flight-and could have watched more! I saw The King’s Speech (pretty good), Love and Other Drugs (not bad), Black Swan (again. Still good), True Grit (pretty good. Like an old western movie), and Morning Glory (okay. [...]
I got my butt up this morning and went to my new apartment gym. I figured this could be the last opportunity to lift weights for a couple weeks. Hopefully, I’ll be able to run in Thailand, but we’re not picking hotels based on if they have a gym or not.
This was my first [...]
The first part of our adventure officially starts tomorrow! We’re flying into L.A. which is where we leave on Sunday to Bangkok. Of course, we’re making a stop before Bangkok. We stop in Seoul, Korea for a couple hours. The flight from L.A. to Seoul is about 16 hours….then five more hours to Bangkok. Some [...]
One thing not included in our new place is a microwave. I noticed most Dallas apartments don’t have washers and dryers, you usually rent or buy your own. That’s a first for me. In this case, we do have the washer/dryer (which is great) but no microwave. Luckily, we have like, a billion dollars to [...]
Yesterday was a moving day! As is today, and probably tomorrow and Friday too. But yesterday was the big day! No need to workout since my forearms and legs are sore today from moving furniture. We rented a Uhaul in the morning and got to packing!
Our old place was pretty ridiculous. It was more [...]
Sunday night I was in one of those moods where I didn’t want to “prepare” anything for dinner. I just wanted to look in the fridge and find something immediately. Unfortunately, I didn’t want a dinner that consisted of string cheese and dates (although I’d probably go for that if Cliff didn’t live with me). [...]
Since marathon training has started, I feel like I haven’t been able to lift weights as much. I think that’s kind of standard. Running takes up so much time and since no one is paying me to run/work out, I guess I have to make time for work.
Today I put together a great, full [...]
