Hiya guys! 🙂
Yesterday, was the best day ever. We woke up around 2 PM and I jumped out of bed knowing we needed to get to our buffet of choice ASAP. We were going to go to the Bellagio but, I just knew the lines there would be horrendous since dinner started there at 10 AM and of course, it is one of the top busiest casinos on The Strip. Plus, we want to check that buffet out on a non-holiday to see all of its normal offerings.
The Bayside Buffet at the Mandalay Bay Casino had dinner starting at 4:30 PM so we felt like we still had a chance to get there before everyone else. When we arrived at around 4 PM, the line was already quite long and they weren’t seating anyone until exactly the thirty minute mark.
We were lucky to have paid and sat down at exactly 4:30 PM and the wait in line was only a chapter long of Heart Recaptured (around 20 minutes or less). We were part of the first group of guests to be seated so I was proud of our timing. 🙂 The line was way beyond outrageous when we walked out.
Inside, the dining area was just breathtaking.
They had all of the Thanksgiving favorites except Green Bean Casserole which I am still a little sour about missing out on lol. I had a huge variety of food though.
Here’s my “Thanksgiving” plate:
I had duck, prime rib, and turkey for my meats. Boyfriend had their ham, too. It was all top-notch, high-quality stuff! So so so delicious.
That pumpkin bread/cake (pictured above) was the most moist and fluffy treat ever. I squealed with intense pleasure when I took my first bite!! Seriously.
We ended with all the desserts and some hot black coffee:
I liked every single thing I tried except the bread pudding, it tasted too egg-y… if that makes sense. 😛 Boyfriend always jokes that I like “old lady desserts” the best lol. For example: the pastries, bread pudding, and coffee cake… and at the buffet we went to a few days before… I was loving the rice pudding! I had never tried it before but, I want to learn how to make a dairy-free version at home now.
We rushed out of there when we were done sipping on our coffees and picking at our sweets. We stopped at Target since they had just opened at 5 PM. I thought there would be some deals on the “bed-in-a-bags” but, they were all sitting at regular price?? We shoulda went to Macy’s!! We found NOTHING that was worth the wait in line to checkout so we just headed home.
I wrote my blog post, sharpened, and resized the photos for my blog post tomorrow then, sat down to play some Saint’s Row with boyfriend until around 3 AM. He went to take a shower and I played a bit of this little boy named Max game, I forget what it’s called but, it’s a fun, puzzle, action-adventure game. When boyfriend got out of the shower, he tried his hand at this part I was having trouble with lol, then we finally went to the room for our last blunt of the night. I only had an hour left in Heart Recaptured so I stayed up after boyfriend fell asleep to finish the book.
The last I looked at the time, it was around 4:30 AM…
I woke up at 3 PM today!! Boyfriend worked the day shift, he left around 10 AM and got home at almost 5 PM. I was hopping in the shower right when he walked through the doors.
We decided to get Chipotle. I didn’t know about the romaine lettuce fiasco so, I was a bit disappointed to have my steak bowl without it but… whatever. It was still good.
We made our routine stop at Starbucks for our espressos and also, had to go into AutoZone for some coolant. Our car has decided to start leaking it… UGH. I am so sad… I hate needing to get the car fixed. We have already had a coolant leak fixed before, too. 😡
My nails are in desperate need of being re-done but, I don’t even know if I’ll get to them tonight. They don’t look so bad in the dark anyways lol.
I’m gonna go do my makeup and hair for work now. I hope you have a good weekend!! ❤
