Hey guys, I’m a little depressed today because I broke my thumb nail last night. I super-glued it together and am hoping and praying that it will not break. It’s gonna be so painful, if it does. Plus, I’ll have to cut all of my other nails to match the length and wait for them all to grow out again. 😦
Yesterday, boyfriend and I went to Greens & Proteins for dinner. I’m not sure if I’ve shown you this place before. We’ve only been a couple times and it’s been awhile since we went last.
They were serving that same “healthy” soda we saw at Shaq’s Big Chicken so we grabbed a cup to try the other flavors. We weren’t a big fan of the Cherry, the Pineapple Cream Soda was yummy though, and the root beer was good, too. I had a sip of each one, then emptied the cup to try the other ones LOL.
We shared the Mini Ahi Tuna Tostadas– they were freakin’ delicious!! The sweet spiralized cukes and fresh avocado chunks on the side though… were not.
Boyfriend got the Angus Beef something or other in a spinach wrap. The meat was seasoned exremely well, not greasy at all, and just so so good. He meant to get the taro fries but, ordered the jicamas on accident. They were just served raw and crisp, doused in some sauce. We weren’t expecting that but, it’s not like they were gross or anything.
I got the Chicken & Quinoa Salad. I really liked it but, some parts of it could have used more dressing.
I also ordered the Chicken Lime Soup which came in a much bigger bowl than I thought it was going to. There wasn’t quite enough broth so, the rice at the bottom kind of soaked it all up. It had a nice, simple flavor that we both enjoyed.
On the way out, I grabbed a Carrot Cake Loaf and a Banana Bread Loaf w/ Choco Chips & Walnuts. They also had Blueberry and Pumpkin loaves!!! It was so hard to choose which ones we wanted. They were all made without eggs, milk, cream, and butter, too!!! ❤ We had the Carrot Cake one when we got home and ohhhh my gosh, it was so moist and fluffy. My teeth just sank into the loaf… then, it melted onto my tongue while slightly sticking to the roof of my mouth… I even did one of those eye rolls when I had my first bite, lol.
ANYWAYS, after Greens & Proteins, of course we stopped at Starbucks for our espressos. When we got home, I put together my December Blog Schedule and scheduled it for this morning. I did my makeup quickly and we went to the bar for a drink. Our two favorite bartenders always talk shit about each other to us and it gets kind of annoying. One of ’em gets all snooty when we sit with the other one, too. 😛
Work was alright… rather slow for a Friday, though. Hopefully tonight will be better. I called boyfriend to pick me up around 3 AM.
Today, we woke up a little later than 3 PM. Boyfriend went to pay rent, rolled a blunt, fed, watered, and cleaned the kids (AKA our 3 cats 😉 ) while I showered and got ready for the day. We smoked our blunt and then headed out to a ramen spot in Henderson that wasn’t too far away. We had never been before and are always nervous to try new ramen but, we decided to take the chance tonight.
Like, most ramen spots, it was quite tiny inside. The decor was pretty, though– I loved all of it.
We were sat at the bar seating because all of the tables were full. We didn’t mind at all though!
We each ordered the Michi Bun. It had pork chashu, cukes, spinach and two different sauces inside. Boyfriend loves these Japanese buns but, hates the Vietnamese Baos for some reason. I love ’em both.
We also shared some Pan-Fried Gyoza. They were okay, just not the best we’ve ever had.
Boyfriend got the Crazy Spicy Ramen with corn added. The broth was an interesting, nutty, surprise-kick kind of spice… (if that makes any sense at all). It was a good different.
I ordered the Tonkotsu Ramen with corn added, I replaced the pork chashu with chicken chashu and the thin noodles with the thick. The chicken chashu was not for me. I had a couple bites but, ended up just not eating it… I hated it, to be frank. The broth was nice though, it wasn’t too salty at all and it wasn’t too thick, either.
Then, you guessed it, we went to Starbucks for our espressos but, instead of coming straight home with them… we went to Ross for some shopping!!!
I had such a blast!! I think we spent an hour and a half in there yet, I still didn’t get to look through every single thing!! Boyfriend and I both got quite a few clothing pieces, then I got a pair of sneakers, a new wallet, and lots of misc. beauty stuff…. I’ll have to show you it all in a Beauty Buys post or something?? 😀 Ross is always dangerous for me but, especially during the holiday season. I plan to make one more trip there before the month is over to sort through all the “gift sets” before they disappear though, hehe.
After shopping, we had to go to the water mill to fill up our jugs. We smoked a blunt then, I started typing this. It’s already 9 PM so I better get started on my makeup and hair for work now.
Hope you all have a nice and safe rest of your weekend. ❤
