Third Week of Summer + My Youtube Channel !! (Please check it out lol)

 On May 21st, my boyfriend and I went to a burrito place called Machismo for the first time. (In Norfolk, VA.) I forgot what he got, but I got chicken, brown rice, lettuce, cheese, corn, and sour cream inside a spinach tortilla.

It was pretty good. I was really happy that the corn didn't have any cilantro in it, unlike Chipotle. The workers were also really friendly. Afterwards, we went to the mall and I got a few things from Forever 21 which I'll show you in my May shopping haul post in a few days. Then at night, we watched 500 Questions again.

On May 22nd, we took my grandma to out and we all went to lunch. Then we dropped her off and we went to Trader Joe's. Then we went shopping for a little while and I got a few things. Then we got pizza for dinner and watched 500 Questions. Then we watched Psych until we fell asleep.

 On May 23rd, we went to the beach with my brother and dad.

He wasn't looking lol.
I packed some fruit and my favorite Naked juice.
We got a gyro after my dad did and funnel cake. I didn't like the gyro, so my boyfriend ate it and then him, my brother, and I shared the funnel cake. It was so good.

Then on May 25th, which was Memorial Day, we went paddle-boarding. It was out first time and this is my first Youtube video. One of my summer goals is to start making videos, because a friend of mine told me he thinks I would do a good job in doing so. This is my first time ever editing a video like this, so I hope you enjoy!! Please give it a thumbs up and subscribe!

BBQ chicken, sweet potato fries, and grilled zucchinis.
I couldn't record the s'morse making part because my GoPro died lol.
My dad roasted my marshmallow and it was a perfect golden color. I was surprised, haha.

On May 27,  my boyfriend and I re-touched the purple in my hair.
Then we went to Whole Foods for lunch, as usual, haha. Then we went to Target and I got a couple things, which you'll see in my haul post.

That's it for my third week of summer!

Second Week of Summer

I'm only going to be writing about days I actually have pictures of.. Lol.

 On May 15th, my boyfriend and I dyed my hair and ran errands most of the afternoon.

Then we had Panera for dinner, went home, and watched Psych as I cleaned my room. Then we watched Guardians of The Galaxy before we fell asleep.

 Then on May 20th, we had Chick-fil-a for lunch. It only cost $3.95 since the nuggets were our free thing of the month. After that, we went to the mall for a while.

 During dinner, we watched Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, and then this show that's airing for 7 days called "500 Questions," which I really wanted to see. After watching that, I think we just watched Psych while I played Animal Crossing until I fell asleep.

First Weekend of Summer

I have 16 weeks and 3 days of summer. I said in a previous post that I would document what I do every Friday since those are my boyfriend and I's day. I'm clearly behind on that, lol. So this is what was going on the first weekend of my summer which was May 7 - 10.

On May 7th, I had my last final. My friend Michael and I finished early so we did some errands until our friend Christian finished his so we could go to lunch. My boyfriend got out of class at the same time so he joined us.

 We went to this place called "Hair of the Dog Eatery." It was my boyfriend and I's third time there. I wanted to go there because I was craving one of their sandwiches. (The plate on the right.)

These are my friends Michael and Christian. It was great seeing them every day of our first year of college!

 On May 8th, my boyfriend came over early and we made breakfast. Then we went to Target because I needed to see if they have a pair of boots I wanted in my size, then to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods with my grandma.

 After Whole Foods, we took my grandma to the store my Uncle works at and he just so happened to have some donuts from Duck Donuts, which is really good. He let me have whoever ones I wanted.

 Then we dropped my grandma off and she gave us $20 for lunch because she knew she was holding us up because we were gonna go out of town. We went to this place in another city that we went to last May and I ordered the same thing. It was so good and I can't wait to go back. I got chicken with rice and mushrooms and dijon honey mustard. I choose corn and broccoli and cheese casserole as my sides. My boyfriend got this platter of fried shrimp and chicken tenders and his sides were macaroni and cheese and fries.

After that we went to the outlets and I bought him those Superstars I posted a picture of in our 3.5 anniversary post. Then we went to a show for my friend and left early after we saw his performance. Then we got some dinner and watched Psych in bed.

 On May 9th, I went to the art museum with my aunt and four younger cousins. My aunt had my uncle's two kids with her because their had somewhere to attend that day, so I told her about this thing going on at the art museum.

It was hard for me to take this photo, lol.
 They had an arts and crafts station for Children's Day, which is a Japanese holiday. They did it a couple days late, but it was still nice and I thought a good way for the kids to learn something culturally. (We are all half Chinese, but only my brother and I are half Japanese.)

This is my aunt and cousin Izzy in the car.
We ate some Chinese food, then went to Starbucks, and then got some groceries. I later spent the night at my aunt's house because Mother's Day was the next day.

 On May 10th, we had Mother's Day lunch at my aunt's house. We had steak, salmon, bacon and peas macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, zucchinis, and corn.

 My cousin Izzy wanted my boyfriend to sit with her at the table in front of the TV, haha.

 These were cheesecake filled strawberries I made. I let Izzy help me with them so it was fun making them. Everyone seemed to like them. Especially when they were dipped in fondue.

We had fruits, angel food cake, and marshmallows to dip into the fondue.

That's what I did my first weekend of summer. Are any of you on summer? Let me know what you did down below!
