Ah, another weekend gone so quickly!
Colin surprised me with a night out on Friday night. We enjoyed dinner at a vegan restaurant in Laguna Beach, a few minutes on the beach, and then the symphony in Costa Mesa! We got the cheapest tickets, which look over the back of the orchestra and provides an interesting view. It really is amazing to see all those instruments come together so smoothly and beautifully.
Tonight we met with the Korean couple who live directly above us for language exchange. I wasn't really looking forward to it, but it was pretty fun! The men met in our apartment and the women met in theirs. We spent half the time speaking in English and the next half speaking only Korean. If we keep it up, I think it might be my best language learning opportunity yet! They don't speak English well, so our default language is Korean. With all my other language partners, the opposite has been true, so I'm looking forward to seeing what progress I can make. I had sort of resigned myself to the fact that my Korean might not get any better, but now I'm a lot more hopeful that I can improve.
The other thing I got done this weekend is branch out a little on my Etsy shop. I was inspired with some of the vintage fabrics I found in the store I'm working at now to make some accessories to give discarded fabrics new life. I posted three new things on lelabela.etsy.com and am working on a few more:
