Spontaneous Dim Sum

Who just stumbles upon the most amazing Dim Sum EVER? We do! When we're downtown scouting out wedding venues like the Rincon Atrium and eating at Yank Sing.

Our rings

Many people are asking to see our rings, so here they are! Dave and I decided that we both wanted engagement rings, so we went shopping together spontaneously one day after we were already engaged.

Both of these rings are silver, but don't worry all of you traditional diamond fans... we're having a diamond engagement ring made for me with a diamond from a ring my Mother gave me. I'll post pics of that ring once it exists.

Guess what?? We got engaged!

Yes, you read that right... Dave and I got engaged! I'm sure most of you aren't surprised, we've been talking about it for a while. But, now it's official. I will post more details soon. We're meeting with our Rabbi today and starting to look at dates and venues. I'm sure it will be a great adventure. And, we're just thrilled, as I'm sure you can imagine.

happy Cal anniversary to ME!

Even though I was not at work today, it is the official one-year anniversary of me working at UC Berkeley! Woo hoo!

I started off in the School of Social Welfare doing graduate admissions and now I am an advisor in the Psychology Department.

Sorry all!

I know I haven't written in a few days... we've been in San Diego running around, seeing people, mathing... well, one of us has been mathing. I'll try to get back on the blogger horse soon. Until then!

The Party Is Over

Do you even recognize the establishment pictured below??? (HINT: look at the neon balloons in the window) It's the new Party Sushi!!! Can you believe it?

It's out with the old and in with the new for a well-known Berkeley haunt called Party Sushi. New menus (without fruit sushi - boo hoo), new higher prices, new decor... thank god the food was good at least because we were initially devastated. It's the end of an era.

Pictured below is Dave a couple of years ago at his birthday dinner. We often celebrated at Party Sushi because the sushi was good, cheap, and the place was already decorated for you!

Resolution 2005

Resolution 2006
Resolution 2007

and now, for my 2008 resolution(s)* DRUMROLL PLEASE!

Pad See Ew

and Curry Noodle Soup

*since I've been so successful with my New Years Resolutions in the past, it was suggested to me that this year I attempt to learn not one, but TWO new dishes! we'll see how it goes.
