Korean Swag

Gee, it is Sunday, Feb. 5th, what in the world could possibly be going on today? I am obviously not a huge professional sports fans. Don't get me wrong, I love going to any type of sporting event/games and cheering on my home teams, but I'm not some crazy die-hard fanatic.  It's not me. But yes, I don't live under a rock so I am aware of some type of football event happening in a couple of hours. Ha. The extent of my knowledge about the Patriots is that Tom Brady is married to Gisele.  Anyways, two of my besties from the west-coast visited me over the weekend, and flew home this morning.  I'm sad. :( They made the trip to New York first, and then flew to Pittsburgh on Friday.  It was so fun to catch up with old friends and show them around Pittsburgh our new digs.  We took them to Hofbrauhaus and to Shadyside, Friendship and Lawrenceville. We showed them some of our favorite restaurants and bars, lots of bars. Lol. It was such a short trip- but really fun to see them.
Below are the ladies at Round Corner Cantina last night. Haha. Love the 1.5 hour waits for a table at Piccolo Forno. That pizza makes it all worth while though.

Also, my bestie, Katie, (the blonde in the middle) recently came back to the states from a year teaching abroad in Seoul, Korea.  I unfortunately couldn't make the trip over to Asia to go see her, but she brought me back so much cute swag- love it! Including my friendship bracelet in the above pix.
She knows my affinity to Hello Kitty and skincare products, so these items are perfect for me:

She also knows who I will be voting for in these!

Also, these little cosmetic accessories are so adorable...holy crap, why can't all my perfume and lip gloss come packaged like these little guys? Doesn't the one in the middle kinda look like me?! The pink bunnies and the girl are scents and the red bunny is lip gloss. Love.
Finally, we have this little guy.  Resemble anything to you? Two words: Penis Park. Click here for all the details- this is real. Amazing.
Wowza. I'm glad that my friend saw this and thought of me. Haha. But seriously, she brought both Van and I back so many thoughtful presents, and Seoul sounds like a truly incredible city.  I would like to visit Asia someday.   Looking forward to seeing you ladies at my wedding in 4 months! 
Enjoy the Superbowl, if you are watching.  I'll be watching the commercials.


  1. You are such a gracious hostess, I wish we had more time with you. Such a fun trip and I'm glad you liked your cutesy gifts :)
