Hootie and Sushi

I'm actually not a fan of birds. I know they're beautiful creatures but I find them to be quite erratic. And having that uncertainty makes me nervous. But a few months ago while visiting the lovely, and I do mean LOVELY, gals Lar and Cath at Asian Cajuns Lar happened to feature an owl ring and I was enamored. I was thrilled to come across one at F21 on the way home from Boston a few weeks ago. It's not as fab as Lar's but for $5.80 it was a steal.

Meet Hootie!
S made fun of him a little, then he moved on to making fun of me. He couldn't quite get why I'd want to adorn myself in something that freaks me out. I tried to explain that having a real life owl perched on my finger is not at all the same as me wearing an owl ring.

 Once he was done with the owl mocking he asked, "Are you wearing white socks...or are those your legs???" To which I replied, "Why would I be wearing white socks??? Sigh...yes, they are my legs." Then he laughed for a good 40 seconds. Lil brownie that he is, never has to worry about getting pale in the winter. Oh well, at least my legs match my jacket. 
Um, that doesn't actually make me feel better.

Ivory Faux Leather Moto Jacket - F21, Turtleneck - Winners, Pants - Zara, 
Booties - Fendi (via ebay), Belt - H&M

All that mocking must've made him hungry. Cause he took me to one of my new fave Japanese restos. So laugh all you want Mr. - just feed me when you're done.
 
 We pigged out on some sushi.

And S always orders the Black Dragon Roll which he LOVES. 
I'm not crazy about eel so I pick it off and eat everything else.
We ordered way more than this but once I started eating I forgot about taking pictures.
Priorities :)
Hope you're all having a fabulous week!

  10. I'm super pale too and it doesn't help that K is naturally tan so it makes me look even paler when I'm next to him!

    Not a big fan of the sushi, I can eat it every now and then but K LOVES it, and he'll eat just about anything on the menu. Blech.

    Happy Wednesday!

  13. Hello Hootie... it is nice to meet you :) I think your ring is fab- and S's comment about white socks? I'm dying... hee hee hee hee. That man, I tell you... the funniest things seem to come out of his mouth. What a hoot!! (Get it... I made an owl joke)
    Okay... stand up comedy obviously not my thing... that sushi looks so tasty. I have not found a sushi place yet in Milwaukee, but when I move home for the summer for my job, there are a few places I simply cannot get enough of... mmmmmm... my mouth is watering already!!
    Hope you're having an awesome week... I am off to work on my paper, some more... ugh.
    Love ya lots... xoxo KS

  15. LOVE sushi. HATE eel. just like you sista!!!

    not gonna lie, i instantly looked at your legs when i read the "are you wearing white socks" comment. don't worry i get pale too but i cheat and tan every once in a while to avoid showing my true nature. haha!

    loving the moto jacket and YOU!

  16. Ooh, snazzy jacket! I actually like eel.. you just have to get beyond the fact that they're slimey snake-like creatures...

    Isn't there anything you can make fun of when it comes to S? I know whenever my guy starts mocking any of my fashiony items, I just make fun of the running shorts he wears when he goes out for a run. Yep, that shuts him up ;-) Cute ring by the way! Paul & Joe makes some really cute owl necklaces as well this season.

    Hope you're having a great week so far!

  21. He just adores you to bits, doesn't he? :) And I think S is also very proud to have such a beautiful wife.
    The ring is beautiful, sweetie. I think I can say the same thing when it comes to snakes - I don't really like them, but I like jewellery that look like snakes, especially bracelets and rings.

    Have a wonderful day, honey!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh gosh. You and S are such a fun couple. I love it. :)
    That sushi looks DELICIOUS. Nom. Nom. Nom. That is the sound of me eating it. (Sorry).
    I love your owl ring. It's very pretty and matches your jacket well. I have a similiar situation. I am afraid of butterflies in real life but that doesn't stop me from wearing butterfly earrings and necklaces and rings. Hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  26. are you wearing white socks?!??! ha hahah! i think people must think the same of me, as i am as pale as can be! hahahaha. OH WELL! i cannot be bothered with that self-tanner crap.

    and this food looks DELICIOUS! i don't think i want to eat eel, though. ew. i am picturing them living and they are repulsive!

    i don't like birds either. they are scary to me. caw caw! i pretty much want nothing to do with them unless they are in 2-d format, like in jewelry or photographs or on paper. not in real life! no way!

  33. Another gorgeous outfit, and that sushi looks wonderful! I Love birds my favourite are Swans and peacocks they are so graceful.. But I am not a fan of parrots and the likes because of their erratic behaviour

  34. Awww thanks for the sweet shout-out, Ela!!! I luuuuurve your little Mr. Hootie! He is so cute! And buh-lieve me! I know what you mean about birds freaking you out. I think as inanimate objects and cartoons they are cute, but after seeing "Birds" and "The Wizard of Oz" (do you remember the red-eyed owl in the flying monkeys scene)- I'm terrified of the real and faux birds that move. Much safer and cuter as rings, I say.
    I love the rest of your outfit too! That white moto jacket is gorgeous and you always know how to style your outfits in a way that fresh and so chic (i would have stuck the jacket on top of skinny jeans and looked tres boring).
    That sushi looks divine!!!
    Hope you are having a fantabulous week too!!!

  35. Hi, Ela!

    Let me tell you a little anecdote. Once in our back terrace, a dove was laying her egg. The hubby got scared and threw the egg away. I gave him a mild tongue lashing about it. Later another dove ( or was it the same one, they look the same to me) layed 2 eggs. This time the hubby let her do her way until the eggs hatched. After about 2 weeks, the momma dove left her dovelings and while the dovelings are getting bigger they alsoleft a lot of poop too on our terrace. I've learned my lesson. Enough of bird loving but the ducks are quite cute in the park. ;)

    Sorry for the long comment. The sushi platter is making me hungry. Your ivory moto is fabulous and so is owl ring.

    PS: Your legs are as white as my hubby's and I'm the one who is morena.lol :)

  37. I really love the jacket! ^__^ && I like your ring too :)

    I couldn't help but laugh out loud when I read the part about whether or not you were wearing socks! haha, that's something that my dad would say to me!! I'm the palest out of everyone in my family, so they're (mostly my dad) always making silly comments =P

  38. Awww I love Hootie! Hahaha, I don't like birds either. I think it started when I was little and a seagull ate a cheetoh right out of my hand! Scary, scary stuff!!!! Lol "are those white socks or are those your legs?" lol lol lol Ela, you and S are soooo hilarious!

    Hmmmm, that sushi made my tummy growl! I am slightly obsessed with sushi
