Happy April Fool’s! 

I didn’t play any pranks, but the guy that my friend and I ordered our dinner from was prettty darn snarky and was totally trolling us. I was quite gullible.

Yummy pulled pork sandwich.

Google was totally awesome and you could catch pokemon on google maps! My friend thought it could be like the video and we could go to locations and then something would show up on the screen and we could try and catch it XD Since we just tapped it on the app, we decided we wanted to do something else. 

We found a Pikachu instead! 

Happy April Fool’s XD

Trying to get the cool silhouette of the trees in my backyard since the sun sets behind the trees of my house. Unfortunately, my phone camera couldn’t do it justice.

Sunday 3/30/14

Cold, gloomy, and wet day again. Super cold. It even started snowing/freezing rain. Took forever trying to figure out where to eat. Ended up getting some sandwiches for lunch from Peace and a Cup of Joe. Was disappointed this time. They seem to do a lot worse for takeout. And, they ran out of ciabatta bread :[ They were insanely slow that day. Don’t know why it took close to an hour to get our take out order.

image

Got the turkey biopark panini (left) and the steak shock trauma panini.(right). They were yummy :] 

Sigh, had to make sure I got home early before the snow really hit. Would have stayed in Baltimore if I had my badge for work :[

Rainy and gloomy day, and up in Baltimore for the weekend.

Walked over to Lexington Market for some lunch!

image

image

Faidley’s famous crab cakes! Pretty good! Lots of crab. $13 for this one cake. Better than you’d get at most restaurants I guess!

image

image

Yummy fried chicken! $2.75 for a thigh piece.

image

image

A little bit of warmth on a cold and wet day. Not enough chocolate in the mocha!

image

My chai tea latte.

image

Boyfriend got me macarons for my birthday!

Samos for dinner! OCTOPUSS <3

image

image

Their salad was gigantic! And I wish they gave more meat because their souvlaki (pork) was amazing! 

image

They give a lot more gyro meat with the salad.

Yummy dinner and surprisingly filling for just eating mostly a salad. The wait is crazy though, so either go super early or a bit later!

It is almost the end of march and we have yet another snow day. (no closures though)

Snow chunks are larger!

Flowers were confused because it was so warm on Saturday and now they’re covered in snow.

Trying to get a picture of the snowflakes! They’re so pretty! Too  bad my camera isn’t all that great to capture/focus on the snowflakes in a good macro!

Dinner date with the sister and her boyfriend and one of her friends.

My Chipotle chicken pasta at Cheesecake Factory!

We got 2 cheesecakes but our waiter cut each of them in half so we each had a half! I think we ended up getting more cheesecake because of that. X.X so heavy, so yummy, too fulll.

Divergent with the family. Let’s just say, Rockville Regal sucks because of it’s lack of free parking, however their big theater is actually super super  nice.

I probably shouldn’t have read the book before watching the movie. But the guy is super cute haha.

Beautiful spring day! One of the few warm days we get right now.

image

Went to the Air and Space Museum in DC with boyfriend!

image

image

There was supposed to be this Asian Kite exhibit there, which in all honesty was a little bit lame. I thought there would be more activities and things to see, however I will say that it was more geared to the little children. The few booths they did have were geared to little kids coloring things.

Indoor kite flying.

Super cute from the gift shop!

Afterward, boyfriend and I drove all the way to Herndon to visit our other couple friend. On our way to dinner, we saw the Google street view car!!!

image

There was a work emergency (wow being on pager duty for amazon is so rough) and we camped out in a starbucks while he tried to get his work done. (Also, it angered me that the starbucks we went to did not honor the green rewards. Green members are supposed to get free refills, but no, the barista said we’d get refills at refill price. I was quite upset.) We finally made our way to Eden center and boyfriend and I got our avocado smoothie!!! God, I love avocado smoothie. You need to try it if you’ve never had it. It’s so good!!

image

image

Shakey beef! It was an interesting marinade and pretty good! Loved the salad/veggies (minus raw onions) underneath! I wish I knew what leafy green that was! It was almost like spinach.

image

Boyfriend’s 3 meat dish! I thought the meat was also pretty good! A little sad we didn’t get to buy banh mi to take home, but next time! It was still an awesome night spent with friends!

First time eating lunchables since..I can’t even remember, elementary school maybe?

Bottom level of the Hirshhorn museum. It was an…..interesting museum to say the least.

The museum is a circle and there’s a courtyard in the middle!

Weird statues outside.

Hello Capital!

Playing around with the monument.

Lol my fingers are not pretty.

Food trucks!

Random Dust storm

Waited forever to get these tacos! They were delicious (albeit small). The meats were delicious and I love that they gave a slice of avocado on top!!

Next off: Natural History Museum.  Oh the memories.

Took way too many pictures (and blurry ones too) and I’ll spare you the crappyness of them.

Hope diamond.

Sardi’s for dinner!

Then game night and first time trying pizookie!

It was amazing and delicious! Warm cookie with ice cream and whipped cream? Hits the sweet spot.

Product exhibit at work! I was debating so hard about going, and finally went and I love free stuff!!!! Yay. I wasn’t too awkward talking to all the people about the science products either. Win!

image

After work, boyfriend and I made this spicy sesame/peanut butter noodles! It was yummy! Definitely should have made more.

And finally made my kobacha! We also made some “fried” chicken again which, still didn’t work so we ended up baking it and I didn’t get to take a picture of it.

Had to buy lunch today and got this really Mediterranean salad with salmon. It was a somewhat large salad, but still cost $8. Lunch so expensive at NIH. I should eat more salad. I also eat way too much. I wasn’t completely full after eating the salad…but that should be the portion size I should eat..clearly I eat too much.
