While some of you may be excited for the weekend, I am not. Today is basically my Monday because I haven’t gone to work all week. Yes, I did say I would go yesterday but, I didn’t.
Usually, when I haven’t been to work for so long– I am ready and even almost excited to get back. I was wondering why I felt so lazy and crabby… so of course I checked my period tracker and it told me I am within 10 days of receiving my period… which means, I am at my worst right now aka in the midst of PMS. It really snuck up on me this month. The days are going by way too quickly. I had no idea it was already the 13th. I almost don’t even wanna leave my apartment until midnight so I won’t be struck with any bad luck.
Actually, I already was struck with bad luck today. Do you guys remember when boyfriend and I road tripped to San Diego? Apparently, we drove through a toll where we were supposed to stop and pay but, somehow missed it?! We are being charged a pretty hefty fee when it could’ve costed us only $7. I am so confused and I hate CA. Their laws are so strict and annoying. Also, boyfriend said there was NO where for us to pay while we were driving so it really makes no sense to us. Do people really pre-plan their road trips and make sure they pay all the tolls they’re going to go through BEFORE doing so?!
Yesterday, boyfriend had the day off. Now he has to work 4 days in a row. Wah! :’-( We were thinking about going grocery shopping but, all of the food would’ve went bad if we did that so we went out to eat instead.
We decided on a place that was located on Fremont Street in Downtown Container Park.
This park is really cool, you guys. If you ever visit Las Vegas, you must stop here. All of the stores, the playground, everything in or around this park was made out of recycled containers!! Look how much we can reuse?!?
It’s not too big of an area so we were able to find our restaurant pretty fast and easy.
I had this place on my Yelp bookmarks when it was called The Perch but, they are now: Downtown Terrace. We had to walk up those stairs to get in ^.
There’s a free beer or wine option when you check-in with Yelp so boyfriend got his beer but, I didn’t want one. We ordered our food at the counter and waited at a table outside for it to be brought to us. It was nice and windy with the water sprinklers actually making me a bit chilly but, at least not nearly as chilly as the A/C inside.
Down below us, we attempted to people watch but, there was barely anyone there. Summer in Las Vegas, I tell ya.
I don’t know what the stage is for but, music was blasting out of the speakers. I doubt that there are ever any live performances here because people walked across the stage over and over again to get in and out of that little tattoo shop behind it? Don’t take my word for it though. 😛
It was Happy Hour so we got the Calamari off that menu to share.
It was really yummy, especially with the tempura jalapeno slices!
Boyfriend ordered this monstrous burger that I didn’t even attempt to take a bite out of because it was waaaay too cheesy and messy!
I was real boring with my choice of Chicken Tenders. They were perfect, though!!
And can every restaurant please season their fries like this?! Sea salt and parsley flakes all over… ohhh my Gooood. YES!
I was definitely full and feelin’ like a greaseball after this meal but, it was awesome. I can’t believe there was NO ONE else here except for a group of pals who were just drinking in the corner.
We had a few more errands to run before we headed home. The usual stuff: coffee, weed, smoke shop but, we also got to make an extra stop at Sally’s for a new nail polish color! When we got home, I painted all of my nails but, didn’t let them dry long enough so I completely ruined them while I was doing my makeup. Yes, I decided not to go to work after I already did my makeup… that is just so typically me!! (Please, tell me I’m not the only one who sang that in the Oops! I Did It Again tune lol). I am even ashamed to type this but, there have been so many days where I’m all made up and ready to go but I end up not going or even sometimes boyfriend will drive me all the way to the club and I say “ahh!! Turn around” before he gets into the parking lot. These are the worst days because I waste them by getting ready for work when I could have just been lounging if I had made up my mind earlier.
Oh! I forgot to show you! We saw this weirdo shuttle bus type thing by Fremont Street that I guess drives all by itself?!?
There was an operator in there but, he wasn’t sitting behind a steering wheel. He’s just in there to make sure everything goes smoothly, I think? I have no idea but, how scary is that? A shuttle that transports people all on its own?! Damn. Wall-E world here we come.
I’m just waiting for someone to make the one machine that The Jetsons have. You know what I’m talking about? The dad rides a conveyor belt through a machine that does all of his morning duties for him like brushing his teeth, dressing him, combing his hair etc. lol.
For the rest of last night, we just ended up watching a few episodes of Boy Meets World while snuggling on the couch. ❤
Today, I woke up around noon just a little after boyfriend left for work. I finished reading Every Day and started on The Ruining. I took a shower then, made a quick salad with chicken to eat in front of an episode of Bunheads. I removed my nail polish because it looked like crap but am too lazy to paint them again. I’ll go bare nailed for tonight; all I care is that my toes are pretty… which they are. 😀
I don’t know why I had such a hard time writing this. My browser kept crashing every time I added a photo (this is not a normal thing for my computer) so I am very frustrated. Goodnight and have a safe weekend, my loves.
