Over the weekend, I caught up with my cousin over napoleons and coffee at Pastry Xpo in Merrifield (1). Afterwards, she showed me a few beauty tricks she learned from one of our favorite youtube gurus (2).
This past Saturday, I had lunch with my family at one of our favorite sushi restaurants in Vienna. For $10.95, I got chirashi (a bowl of sushi rice, sashimi, vegetables and garnishes), miso soup and salad at Sushi Yama (3). As usual, each of us folded our chopstick wrappers into little chopstick rests (4).
While shopping for shoes, I looked through my bag for my phone and pulled out a sweet little message I saved from a fortune cookie I almost forgot about (5). That afternoon, I ground up some coffee beans I brought home from a roastery in San Francisco and put it through a French press for my mom and I to share with belgian chocolate truffles (6).
Before heading back to school, my sweet little brother surprised me a with a little cup of strawberry cheesecake ice cream and crushed graham crackers from cold stone (7).
Later that night, I watched the superbowl with a hibiscus margarita in hand at Fuego Cocina y Tequileria in Clarendon (8)!
How was your weekend? 🙂
