Hey friends!! Did you miss me yesterday?! Or did you not even notice that I didn’t write? Lol. Well, either way! I’m back today with a journal entry though I know a different post was scheduled. I’ll have to put that one in for next month some day.

Yesterday, I was on the Microsoft Store website and I noticed that they were selling the XBOX at the Black Friday prices on their website ALREADY and they had even better bundle packs than the one we were going to get in the JCPenney’s mess on Thanksgiving day. I saw there was even an option to pick it up in-store at the Fashion Show Mall so right when boyfriend got off work, that’s where we headed! We got the Game Pass and Live Gold bundle so, we were able to download all the free games right when we got home. πŸ˜€ We switched turns playing a few different games and had so much fun together all night lol. It was hard to tear ourselves away even to go to bed!!

Right after the mall, we did stop for dinner at Gorilla Sushi though.Β It was our second time there and this time… it wasn’t as good as the first. I don’t think we’ll be going back now. πŸ˜› The fish was extra fishy and almost slimy?

On Saturday, boyfriend had the day off. We went to one of my fave places to eat, Cafe Zupas.

When we walked in, we saw these fresh juices so I knew I had to grab a cup for some. I liked the Turmeric Green Tea one the best but, to be honest, I didn’t even try the orange one.

I had the half-sized bowl of the Chicken Tortilla Soup with tortilla strips and their Braised Turkey Wellness Bowl.

The Turkey Bowl was sooooo yummy!! I ate every last bite of it and the soup was pretty damn tasty, too!!

Boyfriend had their half-sized BBQ Chicken Salad and the whole Honey Bacon Club Sandwich. He said there was a bit too much BBQ sauce on the salad but everything else was good. πŸ™‚

After dinner, we did our usual run to Starbucks, had our usual cocktails together before I went into work, and then I worked until around 3 AM.

Today, we woke up around 1 PM… both bouncin’ with joy because were ready to start gaming again!! Lol. I played a little of my Costume Quest 2 game and then we, took turns playing Forza and Saints Row. We were gonna go to TGI Fridays for dinner because I’ve only been there like once before many, many years ago and they’re always on commercial so I wanted to give ’em a try but, when we got to the Sam’s Town Casino where it was located inside of, we decided to check out the buffet instead… lol.

After stuffing ourselves as much as we could, we went to their Christmas decorations in the Mystic Falls Park. It was beautiful… ❀

Come on! Let’s all stroll through the place together!

When we made it all the way around, I was 100x times more merry than when we had entered. πŸ˜‰

Afterwards, we just headed home. I hopped on here right away and boyfriend is playing his game on the XBOX. I am also drinking yummy hot coffee.

I’m gonna test out a few new makeup products I bought and then, get back to playing games with boyfriend for the rest of the night again. I hope you’ve all been having a nice week. ❀

    1. Those are on sale early too (at Best Buy if you have those?) and they come with a Spiderman game! πŸ™‚ This is my first XBOX though! Previously, I’ve had the PS1-3!


  1. Yay for your new Xbox! I always forget how fun gaming is until I’m sitting there playing Forza and racing around!

    Love all the Christmas decor pictures! It’s so pretty there!

    Also, I want that dinner your boyfriend got with the bbq chicken salad… yum!


    1. I have been seeing a lot more drinks with turmeric in it lately! It was good & the flavor wasn’t too strong at all!

      The Christmas decor really was so beautiful! I love this time of year. πŸ˜€


  2. The Christmas decor is so pretty! You probably didn’t miss much at TGI Fridays, although maybe the one in your area is a lot better. It used to be my favorite restaurant, but the one in my area was horrible the last couple times I went. (The one in my town only has a 2 star rating on Yelp). Plus, they changed the recipe for the Bruschetta Chicken Pasta which was always my favorite. They changed the noodles from angel hair to fettuccine and changed the sauce to be thicker and more tomato-ey. I didn’t like the new recipe nearly as much. The old sauce was a lot better.

    1. I love all the Christmas decor everywhere! It just instantly brightens my mood. πŸ˜€

      Hahaha, I guess everyone else must have agreed with you that the new recipe for the chicken pasta was no good if it’s completely off the menu now!! I do wanna try it out at least once there though.

  4. That’s so awesome you got to skip out on the lines πŸ‘πŸΌ I can’t imagine what it’s like out there right now. And eww slimy fish lol.
    That Cafe Zupas place looks sooo good!!! Turmeric green tea sounds so fab and good for you too. I like how the food looks, I’d love to try it.
    And omg that little park looks incredible!!! So cheery and definitely very Christmasy.

    1. I’m so happy that we didn’t have to get in line for it, too!!! I bet there’s gonna be like an even better deal on Cyber Monday or something… πŸ˜›

      I love Zupas! It’s so fresh and they have a ton of variety. πŸ™‚ The green tea was yummy! I was nervous the turmeric would be strong but it was nice and subtle!

      The little Christmas park was dreeeamy. ❀ Can't wait to see more decorations go up around town!!!

      1. I didn’t go shopping so I have no idea what it must have been like out there haha but yeah some people tend to wait for cyber Monday. I’ve heard rumors that stuff is cheaper on cyber Monday since a lot of people go out and spend on black Friday. Might be the same though.
        I think Mackenzie has made a turmeric latte, I’ll have to ask her for the recipe again because all my screenshots from my ipad are gone lol

        1. We went to Target on Thanksgiving and the crowds weren’t too bad but, the line to check out was soooo long. I’ve seen some Cyber Monday sneak peek deals and it seems they are all the same or not even as good as the Black Friday ones. πŸ˜›

          I saw some turmeric lattes on Pinterest, too! I wonder how they taste!

  5. I love getting the Black Friday prices early! Target had the PS4 on sale starting last Sunday so I ordered it online and then texted one of my friends who wanted to get it for her boyfriend to let her know as well haha. Mine took two days to arrive so I ended up wishing I had done the “pick up in store” option instead of the delivery but it worked out in the end! Glad you two are enjoying your Xbox!

    1. I was so skeptical of the “early” Black Friday deals lol. I thought they were gonna bump it down even more on actual Black Friday! I love that we both bought game consoles this year. πŸ˜€ I hope you are enjoying you’re PS4, too!! ❀

  6. How fun that you got all those free games!! Sounds like you two have already had a lot of fun with them!
    I was honestly frustrated that so many places started the deals so early. So many things that we wanted were sold out by even Thanksgiving. -_-
    Those Christmas decorations are beautiful!! I’m so loving all the holiday decor and it’s everywhere now that Thanksgiving is over! ❀

    1. The XBOX comes with a whole catalog of free games with a $10/month subscription. Kind of like Kindle Unlimited but with games (& better options)! It’s really worth it. πŸ˜€ We have been having loads of fun!!

      I KNOW! I was so confused why the deals were starting so early! & the new Paperwhite never did go on sale. The previous generation one did. *eye roll* lol.

      I can’t wait to see more Christmas decor fill the city up!! πŸ˜€

      1. That really is worth it!! I’m so glad you guys were able to snag that deal!!

        Exactly, and it was upsetting because I wasn’t watching the deals that early lol, so we missed a couple really good ones. I just don’t think it’s right because it’s for Black FRIDAY lol. Now I know to watch the deals like a hawk starting Monday next year hahahaha. We still got a lot though. πŸ™‚ The Kobo never went on sale either!!

        Liked by 1 person

        1. Yeah, the deals will probably start all the way in the beginning of the month next year! That’s so lame that none of the e-readers we wanted went on sale lol. Did you end up buying it anyways?? So awesome to hear that you guys got a lot of good stuff. πŸ˜€

          1. No we didn’t get it, we ran out of money lol. But it was okay because we spent our money on a bunch of other things that we’ve been wanting/needing for a while. πŸ˜‰ And I know Joshua will get it for me for Christmas lol.
