How I Wore It II

{Gifted shirt, Madewell Scarf,  Necklace c/o Hallelu, BDG jeans, dSW boots, tiffany bracelets}

This is installation deux of how I wore my Hallelu pieces! Yesterday I wore one of my tops I got 🙂

I’m happy to say my Monday was successful! Got some important things checked off my to-do list. Plus I made wings and tater tots for dinner! Tonight’s dinner is going to be lasagna… jealous?

Also, I had to wear my Bears shirt today since I didn’t represent all weekend (they had a bye week). This weekend the Bears are going to play the Seahawks in the playoffs, I’m excited becuase I didn’t expect my hometown team to get this far!

Also, today is 1.11.11 are you spooked or excited?! I think I’m excited. What a simple day…

Reunited and it Feels so Good

I left one of my favorite pieces at home in Illinois. Finally, we are reunited.

I look sad because I’m having some issues with my contacts. What I really need is to save up some money to get myself a pair of glasses!!! I never thought I would want a pair so bad…

tam popo

Today’s foodie friday food porn post comes from Tam popo restaurant in Chicago on Lincoln Ave.  They have some serious Korean food, but the best thing in my opinion was their Sashimi. We had some sushi rolls too, but the sashimi just stole the show.

Do these photos make you want to go to a Japanese restaurant? Oh the single roll photo is Sea Urchin! Whoaa..

Today’s food porn post comes from a sweet little brunch place in Andersonville on Clark Street called M Henry.

[made with sautéed baby spinach, onion and crumbled goat cheese, served with fruit.]

sun wah bbq

Today’s food porn comes from Sun Wah BBQ on Broadway in Chicago.

Sun Wah BBQ is a great spot for some traditional Chinese food, if you don’t want to make the trek to Chinatown (for you northsiders). It is an independently own restaurant, family owned and famous for their duck. Unfortunately I did NOT try it. But I am definitely going to next time I go back. They have a wide menu, which ranges from traditional Chinese dishes, to Chinese BBQ to Congee.

We ordered eggplant.

And shrimp dumpling noodle soup.

The eggplant was tasty, cooked just right, and hot! (temperaturewise) But, I really really had wished (when I was eating it) that the shrimp dumpling noodle soup never ended. I love won ton mein, and this was just the same, with shrimp dumplings (which also had forest mushrooms). I wanted the noodles to go on forever and drink the broth, but eventually I ate it all. I can’t wait to get another bowl of dumpling noodle soup from Sun Wah!

*Note: We also order fried rice, but that is something you just can’t mess up.
