Lee Lee’s Oriental

Sweet Boy will soon be celebrating a birthday. He has selected the theme of “The Last Air Bender”. Of course given that the series ended in 2008 and the movie was just released there is NO party ware available. Which mean tons of creative fun for me. (Can you feel the sarcasm?:)


This means we needed to take a trip to our favorite Asian grocery store ~ make sure you scroll down and view the bloopers.

I had an excellent assistant.

A realistic look at Veggie Tales.

The fish had teeth!

Squid meatballs…uh ok.

I looked it up. It is what you think it is. Ugh.

Fish flavored crackers.

Hands off!

The end result for dinner.

He likes it! Hey Mikey!

A few BLOOPERS for your enjoyment….

No children were harmed during the filming of this video. Indeed the truth was told when the camera accidently recorded while in my purse.

We also purchased several fun and festive things for Sweet Boy’s upcoming party. But of course I am mean and will make you wait. :)

I SO enjoyed watching these videos! Reminds me of when my daughter was little and we tried one new "what's this" thing from the grocery store each week. Your son is downright adorable. I love when he says it would be a waste of money and you could come back - good boy!
Had to skip the fish - they gross me out.

I loved the show AND the movie! Considering going to the movies is right up there with a shot in the hiney, that is really saying something.

Pocky for Men? :-X

well I think your Asian store is more interesting than mine...we don't have pork bung or squid meatballs... or other things. AT least I haven't looked for them...maybe we do??? Ish.

Laura, I just spent a delightful coffee break looking over a few posts I had missed. This past couple of weeks have left little time for visiting my favorite blogs... such great posts! I LOVE the chairs! So inspiring... I need to slipcover several of my own.
And the next time you have in Amish country let me know... this is where I live. I would love to have coffee with you.
As far as the apron, of course you can use my post! I am excited to see what you are up to so I can make one for myself.
What a wonderful and inspiring visit... as usual! Have a beautiful weekend.
xo Yvonne

You have made shopping FUN! I would love to experience this store in person. There is nothing quite like this place in my area...
Thanks for sharing with all of us.

No desire to go to an asian market AT ALL! Love the videos though!! Hope it's a great party!

Mildred said...

Your son is a fine young man. Loved the videos Laura. Can't wait to see what you are planning.

I remember quite some time ago when I posted a photo of my Mother's purple Christmas tree ornaments, you and your daughter liked it. I have just posted some of Mother's other purple collectibles. Hope you have time to look.

Have a blessed week friend.
