The reason for this trip is to find out bar results away from home. I recently took the CA bar exam to become licensed as a lawyer, but the stress of finding out results almost overwhelms the actual exam itself! We decided to book a last minute Napa trip and just GO AWAY for the weekend. Well, as it seems, I found out on Friday night that I did pass the exam, and so Saturday and Sunday were full of happy phone calls and wine tastings!!! I highly recommend anyone taking the bar exam to take a trip somewhere, near or far, when you find out results for an exam. Whether the result be good or bad, you can always justify the trip!!!!

My brother Khoa got married this weekend. For the 2nd time. The first wedding was a week before, and was mostly a Vietnamese ceremony and reception. Since I was a bridesmaid in that wedding, I got almost no photos of the day other than the ones on my phone. Therefore, I will rely on Kevin Le, the photographer we hired, to produce images of that wedding. For the 2nd reception, I was a guest mostly, and I got to drink, relax, and party from beginning to end. I brought my camera and was able to take some wonderful pics during the evening, and the pictures with me in them were taken by my brothers and some close friends that managed to figure out my camera settings. The wedding was one of the best receptions i’ve ever been to. I may be biased since it was my family and friends’ energy is insane, but coupled with Grupo Switch, the band my new mother in law hired, it was fire on the dance floor. Here are some of the fun images from my camera that night.

I rarely EVER wear evening gowns. I like cocktail dresses because I can dance and move easily in them. However, this jersey gown is so elegant, carries a lot of bling for a formal event, and yet is so comfortable. I bought it at Nordstrom and it was the perfect dress to attend my brother’s wedding this past weekend!
