Of course I didn’t end up going to work Thursday night but, we all knew that was gonna happen, right? At least I decided not to go before I put makeup on. 😛 Instead, boyfriend and I went out to eat together at Ramen Sora.
It was pretty packed but, we were lucky to snag one of the last available tables. We hadn’t been here in awhile and it was the first time I saw the little jar of hairbands on the table, lol. They were just little rubber bands that I would never tie my hair back with but, I assume some people wouldn’t mind it. It’s a nice offering anyways, isn’t it?!
We both went with the Miso Ramen and added corn. I had no spice to save myself from the bubble guts while boyfriend got extra spicy and dealt with it the next day, hahah.
When we got home, we sat in front of the TV watching Love Island. We went to bed around 3 AM.
On Friday, we decided to go out to eat somewhere new. I found this place called Sharky’s Modern Mexican Kitchen on a Yelp search for Hot & New Restaurants. The menu sounded fantastic but… it was 30 minutes away. I tried to search for somewhere closer to dine at… still… I could not get Sharky’s out of my mind!
We ended up just making the drive there!! When we walked in, there were menus that you could grab hanging on the wall. It’s an order at the counter type of place which I actually wasn’t expecting!
The inside is really big and spacious. I loved the big windows and all of the light coming in. Like every other new restaurant opening up in the world, they went with a rustic-hipster, farm-y, industrial-type theme. It’s cute but, I’m definitely getting a little sick and tired of the look.
There was an unlimited, serve yourself salsa bar yet you had to buy the chips! After we paid for our order, the cashier said “help yourself to our open salsa bar” and I looked at boyfriend with question marks in my eyes… like “where the hell are the chips?!” LOL. I found us a spot to sit while he went back to order our chips.
There were just so many wonderful options on their menu– it was such a hard decision for me (I know, when is it not, right?) but, boyfriend easily chose what he wanted… the beautiful Baja-Style Shrimp Burrito:
I couldn’t have a bite because it was dairy-filled but, I can tell you that boyfriend had no problem finishing it all on his own!
Anyways, I had my own deliciousness to devour.
I ordered the Fresh Grilled Angus Steak Power Plate with Organic Vegan Mexican Rice and Mashed Organic Yams. The rice was soooo yummy and the steak was perfectly grilled with just the right amount of pink in the middle, no sauce or salt was needed at all. I do wish I would have chosen the grilled veggies or veggie & quinoa mix for my second side instead of the yams though, they were a bit too sweet and I needed some lighter veggies in my life after all the rice and steak.
When we finished up with dinner, we went to a Starbucks for our espressos. When we got home, I wrote up my blog post and then I got ready for work.
Boyfriend and I stopped at Albertson’s so I could buy some snacks for my locker. We also stopped for a couple drinks together before he dropped me off. I was tipsy when I got in but, was smart enough not to drink anymore while I was there. I was at the point where one more would’ve threw me over!
The night kind of passed by in a blur. I mostly hung out with this huge bachelor party the entire time! They were all Cambodian (like me) which made it that much more fun! They couldn’t talk about me because I’d understand them and then, they’d laugh and be like “oh shit… she knows everything we’re saying!” hahhah.
I headed home around 3 AM, I was super exhausted and I still kind of am right now!
Today, we woke up around 1 PM. I wrote up our grocery list, read some blogs on my Reader, and smoked a blunt. Theeen, we went to the grocery store and the dispensary, came home, had dinner, went to Starbucks, the smoke shop, and the ATM, and now here I am.
I should probably go do my makeup and hair soon. I’m hoping tonight is a little busier than last night was for me. I’m definitely not having any alcoholic bevvies!
