we didn't do anything over the top. we didn't need to "live it up". we didn't even feel like we needed to "entertain". the girls went to the city for wedding dress shopping. the boys stayed home and did boy things (and by that i mean they didn't shower, they played video games, and they consumed pizza, korean fried chicken, AND beer). hung gave the boys a haircut. we attended a charity event. we ate at a dimly lit west village restaurant for a birthday.
...and it was just nice. we're so thankful to have friends like this who love us for who we are, enjoy doing the simple things that we like to do, visit often, and most of all, have been there for over 20 years. the friends that visited last weekend are hung's childhood friends who have all been close since grade school. i'm lucky enough to say that they have become good friends of mine as well, and i'm happy they eagerly welcomed me into their lives even from the very beginning :)
.....have any of you been inside B&H before? it's that gigantic camera store in midtown, and it's seriously the best place ever. even if it wasn't for those candy dishes all around the store (that i ate at least 10 of before we walked out) i could go back everyday just testing out different lenses and gadgets for our camera... like that $1,100 Zeiss lens that we fell in love with... one day i'll have that perfect lens that i'll never need to change out....
we kept talking all weekend how cool it would be if we all lived in the same city (instead of FOUR different cities). considering hung and i are the only ones who invested in a home where we live, i think it's up to everyone else to move to US, right? right... ok guys, let's start working on that "moving to the NYC area" thing. future baby phans need pseudo aunties and uncles ;)
