KDrama: Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

I just finished watching this show. I watched it from the very beginning. I'm sad to say goodbye to the characters. They have such great chemistry. I like how they ended it. Great job writers.

South Padre Island in Winter

 
We went on a winter vacation to the beach. South Padre Island. My husband and I took turns crying as we look at our boys and we were missing Yoel from the group. Despite it being winter, it was a sunny day at 77F. My youngest got sunburned. 

 
 
The boys seemed content to just dig and pile sand. They work so hard to build a fort. Chana and my husband talked. The girl didn't want any saltwater on her person. 

 
There's me taking pictures and getting my long pants wet. I wasn't planning to go to the beach right then, but the sand looked lovely and we just stopped and rolled on it. Except for the girl, of course.

Walking at Bridge Park

Went to have late lunch early dinner at Spiral Diner and Bakery, a vegan restaurant in Oak Cliff area. The food were exceptional. 
 
 

We saw the park on the way and decided to stop by after eating. The downtown lights looked wonderful from the bridge.

Crap from FURNITUREMAXX made by ROUNDHILL at Amazon.com

This is a bad chair


Roundhill Blended Leather Parson Dining Side Chairs with Espresso Legs, Black, Set of 2

I was looking for something nice that will not be too expensive.  I picked this chair.  I bought this from Amazon.com because they fix what is wrong within thirty days.  However, this chair is evil.  They started falling apart after thirty days.  I bought 8 and in March and less than 3 months later, 4 are broken.  Just as pictured here, but the other 3, two legs went out.  I just want to let you know that if you think of buying this chair, do not.
