Aw yeah, you best believe that the Nguyen-Family knows how to grill-out.
Yesterday, Thao and I hosted a backyard bbq in honor of my cousin Van and Max's coming into town from Portland and LA respectively. My cousin Joe and Van whipped up the most amazing steaks ever (No A-1 needed!) along with some other equally delicious grilled veggies and mouth-watering bratwurst dogs. We enjoyed all of this out in the beautiful, breezy GA summer weather with some ice-cold beers and hilarious, uninhibited conversation. It made me realize how much I missed these get-togethers and how I need to get some more going!
Later, when the sun went down and the grill went out, we ventured on inside to snack on icecream and candy, all while learning to count cards while playing Black Jack. That's right, the Nguyens are going to Vegas this summer and we plan on taking them to cleaners.
I have to go shower and get dressed now--my dad is taking me and Thao out to Fogo de Chao for a graduation lunch of sorts. I swear, all of this red meat is going to kill me.

This weekend was amazing, so naturally this Monday is really shitty. I woke up for work late today because my cousin Van was in town from Maine and we decided to throw a sort of "Welcome Home/Jackie's Graduation" shin-dig for him at my house all day Sunday. This was a lot of fun, despite the vicious hangover I was experiencing from having tailgated all day and clubbing all night Saturday (The pho Priscilla and I grabbed Sunday afternoon served only as a slight relief).
