Thai by Thai

My mom and I struck out at the mall today. We were both in search of fabulous dresses for the rehearsal dinner but we couldn’t find ANYTHING we liked. We went even went to two malls and still came out empty handed in the dress department – but obviously two ladies spending an afternoon at the mall didn’t come home COMPLETELY empty handed.


We picked up a few things for the wedding and a few other things for the honeymoon. We made some progress but our search for rehearsal dinner dresses was an epic fail.

After 7 hours of running around doing errands – we were hungry! So my mom and I met up with my brother and headed over to our favorite little Thai restaurant – Cee’s Thai


As soon as we sat down we got some Jasmine Tea because it is FREEZING in Virginia today!


Warmed me right up!


We got a few different things for the 3 of us and shared. We started off with my mom’s favorite – Paper Moon’s – which are cream cheese and crab.


I enjoyed the Tum-Yum chicken soup which was very much like a hot and sour soup – it was spicy!


My brother tested out the chicken satay – I am loving the spicy peanut sauce!

For my main course (I was starving after walking around the stores all day!), I enjoyed the shrimp pad Thai. It was just as good as it always is.


Probably my favorite Thai dish ever.


We also got the sesame beef stir fry which came with a side of rice.


It was a meal fit for a king! Delish as always! I am always jealous of my family with this amazing Thai place so close by – I need to find a favorite Thai restaurant by me in Philly! Any Philly readers have any thoughts on this?

I also got my favorite dessert ever packed up to go – Sticky Rice with Mango – I love that stuff!  

Do you like Thai food? What is your favorite dish?

More Than Just Friends

This looks innocent enough, right?


Whenever we come home, Jackson enjoys a not so secret love affair with my stuffed dog, Penelope. Anyone else have a Penelope stuffed dog from FAO Schwartz? Remember those? He LOVES her. Jackson is not a dog that is aggressive in this way – but I find it hilarious that the second we get to my parents house, he runs upstairs to my bedroom and gets all up on Penelope.


It’s easy to catch him in the act. He doesn’t hide his affection.


It’s clearly Puppy Love at its finest.


Have Juice, Will Travel

In other news I would like to officially state that I am addicted to my juicer. So much in fact that I packed it up in my car and took it with me to Virginia! I knew I couldn’t go 3 days without juicing so I had to feed my addiction.


I warned my mom that I was coming with juicer in hand so she was nice enough to grocery shop and pick up some juicing essentials for me.


This combination is quickly becoming a favorite for my green drinks. Celery, cucumber, carrots, apples and a slice of beet.


It comes out tasting very green which I enjoy. If you are new to the juicing scene you might want to start out a little lighter.


The snow is melting down South and it looks like it is going to be a beautiful day for my mom and I to go tackle some more wedding essentials – today one of the many things we are focusing on is attempting to find me a rehearsal dinner dress. Any thoughts or suggestions as to what to wear for that?
