Anyhoo, onto the weekend. Chris has always been really into shoes...or "kicks" as he calls them. Tennis shoes to be exact...specifically high tops. So when he found out you can design your own Air Jordans at Nike, he wanted one right away for our wedding. He'll change into them during the reception and the colors he decided to design them were our wedding colors (red, white, and black). On the side of the shoes, near the heel, he put his last name...and will have the rest of the groomsmen sign the bottom. I'm wearing them to show them off. Hehe.
At the Nordstroms sale (and in preparation for Hawaii), I saw these Fendi sunglasses on sale for a really great deal. Because I have a small bridge on my nose, sunglasses are hard for me. But these ones stay on really well. Also, I can't get ones that are curved, ,since they make me dizzy. Chris thinks I need glasses for my vision, but I don't think so. =P I see fine! These are pretty flat, and the dizziness is minimal. What do ya guys think?
Moving onto some meals we made for the weekend. Friday night it took me forever, but I made home made Kimchee soup. :) For those that don't know, Kimchee is a fermented cabbage dish from Korea. I love this stuff...and I know some people can't stand it. But luckily, Chris loves it too. I made a pork based stock, added potatos, daikon (radish), onions, jalapenos, and kimchee with other Korean spicy condiments. Also, for some seafood flavor, I added some frozen mussels. It was delish. This soup is always better on the second day...so the next day Chris' brother and sister came over and almost had half a pot full!
Most of you know we finished our deck in our backyard but our patio furniture came in and we picked it up this Saturday. My dad helped us put it together so Chris and I decided to have dinner outside last night. We grilled up some chicken burgers from Costco. These are sooo delicious people! They're called Caramelized Chicken Burgers made by Amy Lu. We put some cheese on them and fried an egg to top it off. On the side, we bought some baby octupus to grill up. Chris made a spicy marinade and it definitely had a bite. Overall, a great relaxing night...FINALLY!
Finally, my OOTD for today. This is the debut of my sapphire acting out skirt. Sorry for the horrible photos and I know you can't really see the skirt, but I just love it! This version of the skirt is more fitted than the original gray version...which makes me feel powerful and sexy at the same time. I'm loving it!

There you go, my weekend in a nutshell. We're also almost done with our programs...so I'll post those up after they come off the presses! Have a wonderful Monday to you all!
