Okay, brace yourselves for a pretty long and photo-filled post because I hate this whole writing about the past stuff. I wanna talk about my PRESENT day sooo… let’s get right to it, yeah??
When we got home from the cabin on Wednesday, it was still early. We chilled at home a bit until it was time for dinner. I mostly played my stupid Adventure Time game that I still can’t beat.
For dinner, we went to this new Vietnamese restaurant called Pho T.
We loved the interior. The tables with connected benches for chairs reminded us of some of our favorite spots in Minnesota.
You will never stop us from ordering fresh shrimp summer rolls for our appetizer if it’s an option.
These were kind of small and so were the shrimps inside but, still, they were yummy as ever.
I have to make fun of boyfriend a little because we both wanted the vermicelli noodle salad for our main courses but, they had it listed under “bun” so he skipped over the whole section and ordered the Pan-Fried Noodles instead. I felt bad for not letting him know first, I thought he would’ve known and I didn’t know what he was ordering until he told the waitress. My bad…
It was good though! He got it with beef and we both liked it– I did think they were a little stingy with the noodles… there were more bean sprouts than anything.
I got the Lemongrass Beef “Bun” (aka vermicelli noodle salad). I thought the beef was a little overcooked and the sauce was a bit too sweet but, it was still enjoyable.
They had boba slushies on their menu so we couldn’t resist trying some for dessert.
Boyfriend chose Honeydew flavor and I chose Almond & Lavender. They were alright but, I could taste the powder at first and the sweetness started giving me a headache after drinking only half of it.
When we got home that evening, I got further in my game until I got sleepy.
On Thursday, boyfriend and I both went back to work. While he was at work, I made myself a frozen Luvo meal for dinner. It was the Mango Chicken one.
I liked it but, I needed like double the portion. Luckily, when boyfriend got home he bought a huge sub sandwich from Albertson’s. I had a huge chunk of it before work and some more of it for dinner on Friday along with my fave Asian Chicken salad boyfriend also had picked up for me.
Work was really good both Thursday and Friday night. Thank you to all the SEMA attendees!!! 😉
On Saturday, boyfriend had the day off and I saw there was a sale for $10 body butters at The Body Shop. Countless blog friends have recommended the brand to me on their sites and I’ve just run out of body lotion so it was the perfect timing! (I’ll show you what I got next month in my November Beauty Buys post).
There are only two The Body Shop stores in Las Vegas and the closest one was in the Fashion Show Mall. After I bought my stuff, we walked to California Pizza Kitchen for dinner and got to stop and watch a little of the Calvin Klein runway show!
I know, it’s crazy, but this was our first time at California Pizza Kitchen. I had no idea they had so much variety on their menu!
I was incredibly tempted by their delicious sounding sangrias– I’ve never heard of such creative concoctions before but… I’m still a little scared of alcohol right now after my throw up session lol.
We were given complimentary crusty bread with seasoned olive oil for dipping. 😀
For our appetizer, we chose the Chicken Lettuce Wraps. It was fun building them by ourselves instead of having trouble trying to keep together already made ones. The sauce that was given on the side was a little too salty but, the chicken tasted fine without it anyways.
I chose the Thai salad with chicken. It was absolutely fantastic. The dressing was definitely the best part– there was an unexpected spicy kick to it… mmm, mmm!
Boyfriend ordered The Works pizza… I was insanely jealous watching him eat it.
Look at all those gorgeous mushrooms!!!
On our way home we made our usual stop at Starbucks. I wrote my Journal Entry before getting ready for work. I got there around 11 PM and sadly, it was kinda lame– especially compared to the two nights before. I had no idea about the time going backwards one hour until one of my co-workers mentioned it. I was like “no wonder it felt like I had been here way longer than what the time said!” I left at 3 AM which really means I left at 4 AM?
Now, we’re finally talkin’ about TODAY!
Boyfriend had to work during the day. I woke up around noon and he got home around 4 PM. It’s Sunday so you already know we went out for sushi!! We decided to try somewhere we hadn’t been before called, Gorilla Sushi.
Their menu was huge and they’re closer to us than Chinatown is so I have no idea why we hadn’t been before. We were in AYCE Heaven. I put the food I captured into collages this time so it wouldn’t be scrolling overkill for you. 😉
If you think that’s a lot… just know… there was actually even more that I didn’t capture LOL. They gave us a stamp card, too, so we’ll definitely be going back to fill it up.
The inside of the restaurant was really cheerful and bright. I loved it because it instantly brightened my mood. The cube lights are neat as heck, too! I forgot to take a picture of the exterior though… Dang it!!
On the way home, we stopped at Albertson’s to buy some coffee grounds. We ended up buying two bags because we couldn’t choose between them. We also picked up some snacks and organic Italian soda.
Since we got home… I’ve responded to some lovely comments on here, drank hella coffee, started writing this… we’ve already smoked two blunts, and I’m just finishing now. I’m gonna cut myself off here.
Have a wonderful week, loves. ❤
