Tomorrow is my little brother’s birthday. I am going to try to remember to text him at midnight. I’m writing it down here because I heard that helps keep it in my memory.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas (if you celebrated yesterday). Boyfriend and I went to Treasure Island. They have the “newest buffet” on The Strip right now. We had never even been into the casino before so we thought it was about time to check it out.
I Facebook Video Chatted with my mom (and her husband) in the car, on the way there. There were all these cute, little fun filters. I am so behind on all that new technology, my mom was teaching me how to use it all. I accidentally sent asteroids flying at our heads and I didn’t turn it off for AWHILE because I thought she was the one who had it on… LOL. I finally turned it off and she was like “oh, you’re normal now” and I admitted I had no idea how I had turned it on and she started laughing at me for not knowing… shouldn’t it be the other way around?!
We were a bit early for dinner. It started at 3 PM and we got there around 2 PM. We played a little of the slot machines and I won $5 while boyfriend lost $5. We tried to get a free drink from the cocktail waitress but, she was taking forever. I saw people going into the buffet around 2:30 when the Champagne Brunch was still going on. We asked if dinner had started and the cashier said “no, but the Champagne Brunch is going on right now and dinner will start at 3 PM” — pretty much, encouraging us to go in. I was confused so I said “we’ll be back at 3 PM” then, walked off.
I thought about it a little… and I was like, “wait, that flock of folks went in because they’re gonna stay in there all the way until dinner starts but, they only had to pay the cheaper price of the Champagne Brunch PLUS, they get free mimosas…”
We scurried back to the buffet as fast as we could. We asked if it was alright to stay for dinner and she said, “of course!!” so, we were lucky enough to pay the cheaper price AND have more options for food. Merry Christmas to us!
Of course, we grabbed as many mimosas as we could! There was plain champagne, regular mimosas (with orange juice), and cranberry mimosas! The cranberry one was my fave. We also had to try some of their breakfast items before they were put away because why not? They had so many different healthy juices and smoothies in different shaped glasses set out. I tried two (but, only photographed one). They were both pretty tasty!!
All of their dinner foods were a bit off though. Everything was kind of dry and over-salted. A lot of it came out late, too. Way past 3 PM… which we obviously couldn’t complain about but if I had been someone who had paid the dinner price… I would’ve been quite upset!
Their desserts were pretty good though! I liked most everything I tried except that green cookie you can see peeking out… 😛
I was sooo freakin’ stuffed, boyfriend had to roll me to the car lol. Just kidding, that sure would have been nice though!
We came home to do our usual game session. I have been impregnating my Sim like crazy because I want twins and/or triplets but, it’s not happening and now I have like 2 babies and 2 toddlers but, none that are identical.
I also have a Young Adult daughter but, she just moved out into her own home. Yay!
Today, I sent boyfriend to the store to buy a rotisserie chicken and some side dishes (salad, baked beans, and rice) because I don’t feel like leaving the apartment at all.
I spent a little time reading some blogs on my Reader when I woke up, took a shower, replied to some lovely comments and responses on here, and then hopped onto the Sims 4 right away. Last night, we went to sleep when my Sim was still pregnant… I was excited to see if I was going to finally be rewarded but, I wasn’t!! I almost quit the game without saving because I was that mad!!! I didn’t want to cheat that way though so I didn’t do it but, I still wish I did!
When boyfriend got back from picking up dinner, we ate together and I hopped on to write this. 🙂
I think I’ll post my book review for One Day in December tomorrow now that I’ve wrapped my head around what I want to say about it and I’ll show you all my December Ipsy Glambag on Saturday.
