Our 1 Year Anniversary (Dating) =P

Hey Ladies!
How is everyone's week going??

Mine has been one of the best!
I did kick ass on my last final (Monday).
The rest of the week, I spent kickin' it with my boyfriend who is officially graduating law school!!
I'm so proud of him. He now just has the bar to conquer.

We celebrated our 1 year together this week. There really isn't a particular date, but we know it was this month sometime =P I wish we had brought a camera with us..we only have blackberry pics!!!

We had reservations at Capital Grille Steakhouse, and they got us in right away. Free valet parking, complimentary champagne & dessert in honor of our occasion. That was such a lovely surprise!!

Haha, but I bet they thought it was our 1 year wedding anniversary ahahahahahaha ...b/c the head waiter said, "Mr. & Mrs. Nguyen" You should have seen the expression on my bf face! I kept making jokes throughout the night about it.

Complimentary Chapagne

They even wrote us a nice cardI had to take pictures of the little decorative confetti

Truffle Fries!
$8 cup of clam chowder..hmmm lol, it was good tho!

Told you I had to take a pic!

My tenderloin and poached lobster.. $45

Honey ordered Oscar ....something steak ...$43

They make good food :)

They even gave us towels to clean our hands before dessert

I love me some wine

I wish everyday could be like this!!

We ended up losing again ~ $600
So much for trying to win another LV bag!!

Earlier that day we went shopping @ Somerset Collection

Minh loves gifts & gadgets..he bought me light up reindeer antlers
Mirrors, gotta love them
He always has to make stupid faces!!

We had lunch in Brighton on the way to Somerset at a new Asian Restaurant called Pi's,
it sucked so bad!! It's the Panera of Chinese-American food. Nothing looked like the picture either!

Pi's! Thanks for modeling hun.
Disappointing Tuna Roll, Padthai, Thai CurryKorean Crab Cakes

We did a ton of shopping! I spend my $15 from sample goodies!!
We shopped at Coach, LV, Sephora (twice), Express, Guess, Banana Republic, and just a bunch of other stores! We got a lot of Christmas shopping done for his family and mine.

I feel so blessed for having such a wonderful time of my life with my bf!!

I will post pictures of my "mini" haul soon!

Stay posted!!

Also, I sold a necklace to a really sweet Korean guy this morning. He's been a fan of my jewelry for quite some time, and he just sent me the sweetest thank you.
His girlfriend is so luck!! He spoils her with jewelry!!!
