Journal Entry #204

Friday night after I published my Journal Entry, I got hungry and made a little salad before I did my makeup. It was so dang yummy.

Before I went into work, I was actually NOT wanting to drink but boyfriend wanted one so I gave in to his peer pressure and we had one together at our usual bar. When I checked in, it was a little past midnight. My regular client that brings me all the candy, plushies, the lingerie, and the VS gift card was there waiting for me. This time, he brought me the variety pack of Ferrero (or whatever) chocolates and a plushie. We spent our usual amount of time together and he was his usual self BUT, he mentioned I gained weight… *gasp* how fucking rude, I know.

I told him “that was super mean” and he acted like it was no biggie??? I’m not sure I’ll talk to him anymore if I see him again. I mean, I honestly know I have been packin’ on the lbs lately but… damn, I really feel that’s the worst thing you can say to a girl especially while I’m doing my particular job.

I was a little hurt but, y’know what? His words motivated me to really quit drinking because Saturday night. I did it. I went to work completely sober and I did absolutely fine. πŸ™‚ After a few weeks of no drinking and a little more activity, I will be fit again and that jackass can watch me strut right past him looking better than ever!!

Boyfriend gave his shift up on Saturday. I’m trying to think of a legit reason why but I can’t… you can just say we are irresponsible and there was more than one colleague of his willing to pick up his slack anyway (thankfully!).

We went out to eat at a Thai restaurant we had never been to before. It’s right next door to one that we actually have been to before called, Komol.

Komol is super popular on Yelp and was quite tasty. The interior there was more dingy and less fancy though so, we were intimidated by Arawan’s fancy interior when we walked in.

The host even asked if we had reservations… we were worried when we had to answer “no.” Only one other table was occupied so, I guess, reservations weren’t fully required. Phew!

We took awhile looking through the menu. Not until after we put in our order were we served this small plate of complimentary wonton chips with a spicy sweet chili dipping sauce. It was a nice snack but, very very dainty. It was almost pointless to serve. πŸ˜›

For our appetizer, you all know, we can’t pass up the summer rolls when they’re available. We both commented on how beautiful and different the presentation was. They were served with the sweet peanutty fish sauce for dipping. So fresh and yummy… !!

Boyfriend went for the Duck Noodle Soup which had tremendous pieces of duck meat in it but the broth was terribly sweet and weirdly thick. They also used thin egg noodles which aren’t our favorite.

For me, the Shrimp Drunken Noodles… nom nom. No complaints here. ❀

Boyfriend also had a cup of their Thai iced tea. I had the smallest sip and it wasn’t too sweet at all! I could actually taste the tea in it and I was so jealous I couldn’t have one of my own (without upsetting my stomach).

After dinner, we drove-thru at Starbucks for our 4 shots of espresso over ice, stopped at the dispensary (like we always seem to do…), and then when we came home I binge-watched Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce when I should have been blogging. πŸ˜›

I had to stop watching my show because I wanted to make it to work sober and early (-er than usual). I was there around 10 PM and I didn’t have an ounce of alcohol throughout my whole shift… boo-yah!!! I had a chill night and left a little past 2:30 AM.

Yesterday was SUSHI SUNDAY! Boyfriend had to work the day shift so he wasn’t home until almost 3:30 PM. I was still snoozin’ when he walked through the door… hehe.

I got showered as quick as I could but, we knew we weren’t going to Sakana with how late it was. There was def going to be a line at that time. So, we drove to their sister restaurant, Sushi Neko.

I somehow forgot my phone at home so, thank you to boyfriend for snapping all the photos for me this day. πŸ˜€ I was like “man, this is kind of fun to not have to take the pictures” I would just say, “can you get a pic?” and he would snap a few. He sent them all to me when I got home and I was like “dang, these look just like how I would’ve taken them” πŸ˜‰ what a guy, huh? I should “forget my phone” more often.

Oh and P.S. we did NOT ask for those filthy straws in our cups, they were put in there by the waitstaff before we even got them. (Say ‘no’ to straws!, right?)

We skipped dessert at the restaurant and headed to Tea of Joy on the way home instead.

I ordered a Green Thai (Almond) Milk Tea and boyfriend got the Mango Black Tea. Mine was marvelous, exactly what I was looking for. The perfect amount of tea flavor and sweetness to cure my sweet tooth. Boyfriend’s tasted just like those spicy mango lollipops after you lick off all the spicy. Or just mango-flavored candy… if you’ve never had one of those specific lollies lol.

When we got home from dinner and dessert, I quickly typed up a Recipe Reviews post before I plopped down for another session of Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce. Why do I like this show? Lol, I have no idea! I just do!

In the middle of the night, we ran out of toilet paper so boyfriend had to run to the store to buy more. I was actually kind of happy because I got him to get me some ham and onions, too. πŸ˜€ I was really craving that salad I had Friday night again but ran out of those two items.

As his reward, I made him one, too. πŸ˜‰ (The toppings consist of raw cashews, pine nuts, salad topper mix, croutons, ham, chicken, onions, wonton strips, and Organic Valley’s French dressing. Mm, mm.)

We went to bed around 3 AM. I found 3 recipes to buy ingredients for before falling asleep.

I woke up at noon and read a couple blog posts on my Reader but mostly, pages of Sweatpea until boyfriend finally woke up at nearly 3 PM. I took a shower then we smoked a blunt, I wrote the groceries list, and off to Smith’s we went.

We stopped at the dispensary (yet again) before we went shopping. I tried not to buy as many snacks as I usually do because well, for one: trying to lose this weight, and for two: have a ton of snacks from the last couple trips I haven’t ate up yet. I did better than usual but could have maybe left a couple items out of the cart…

I wish I could’ve caught a better photo but, on the way home, the mountains looked like their peaks were lit up. It was magical.

When we got home, I was excited to feed our kiddos (3 kitty cats) these new amazing treats I found.

I scope the aisle for cat treats every time we go shopping but never find anything of interest until I saw these filets! They must be brand new to the Fancy Feast line. The best thing is, the first ingredient is the real actual meat and there are only two other ingredients included in each pack. The directions say you can feed these whole, flaked up, or as a topper over dry food. We tried to cut them into three big chunks but, they all were just licking at them so I had to cut it up for them while they were eating lol it was soooo cute. ❀ They looooved the tuna and I just cannot wait to feed them the chicken and salmon.

We then smoked a blunt and as always, I destroyed all the kitchen newcomers. πŸ˜€ We have been getting shrimp to dip with cocktail sauce (infused with extra horseradish) a lot lately… it’s just so DANG delish.

I was watching Girlfriends’ Guide until dinner was ready, ate, finished the episode and then hopped onto here.

I think I’m going to stop doing those end-of-the-month ICYMI posts. They’re boring. I can’t wait for the month to be over (because sub boxes!!). January has been quite the long one, hasn’t it?

Goodnight my dears!! Hope you all have a lovely week. ❀

  1. Those summer rolls look so good! I’ve never had them, but I really want to try them. Omg those cat treats! I’m going to have to look for those. I gave my cats the Fancy Feast Purely Natural treats before. They seem to be the same as the filets pretty much, except smaller in size. I’ll get the salmon if I see it because Cameron loves salmon. He doesn’t seem to really like chicken though.

    1. Ooh how I wish I could bring you to all the places to try all the foods! & oh my gosh, those cat treats are too awesome, right?? Cats are finally getting some nice treats like dogs do. πŸ™‚ I’m not sure if they will like the chicken as much either but we’ll have to see!!

      1. Chloe seemed to like the chicken ones. I gave one to Cameron one time and he didn’t want to eat it, so Chloe came over and snatched it up. LOL It was so funny because Cameron is the one who loves to eat and Chloe never ate much, but she sure loved her treats. I miss her. I think about her every time I give Cameron treats because she used to get so excited over them.

        1. That’s such a sweet memory!!! My Benji is the same way that Chloe was. He doesn’t eat half as much as Sushi or Twinkie with the dry food but then when the treats or wet food comes out, he is the first one meowing and the last one licking it all clean! I’m still so sorry about your loss, I can’t even imagine. ❀

  2. Ugh. Don’t guys know how rude it is to comment on a woman’s weight!? It’s good that you limit your alcohol intake. Drinking your calories is easy to do without realizing how much you’re actually drinking. You got this!

  3. Ugh, i can’t believe that dude said that to you. How rude! :/

    Man, all the food looks so good! I love ramen, and finally there’s a ramen place near my house. Previously i had to go to the city center if i wanted a decent one πŸ˜€

    1. He was super rude to say that! I couldn’t believe he acted like the weight was no big deal, too… like, how could it not be?!?

      So nice that the ramen shop opened near you! I love when that happens. πŸ˜€

    1. Aw, thank you, Stephanie! That is so sweet of you to say. ❀ I really don't mind the way I am at the moment but I do think I would look a bit better if I did shed this weight I've put on recently, y'know? Thank YOU for stopping by & reading!! ❀

  4. Oh my gosh, that was SO MEAN of that guy to say! I definitely think you should just ignore him from now on, lol. He doesn’t deserve you at your best if he wants to make comments like that. πŸ˜‰ Like, seriously, it is ALWAYS rude & uncalled for when any guy wants to make comments on a girl’s weight, regardless of their relationship. My dad and brother used to comment on my weight and it was so hurtful!
    Anywayyy lol those cat treats look amazing!! Zelda would go crazy for them. I will have to look for them at the store! I love that they are the real fish too.

    1. Yeah it was pretty rude & I think I will ignore him from now on. He obviously knew that would upset me but he said it anyways. I don’t care his reasoning behind it. πŸ˜› My dad & brother make comments about my sister weighing too much & me weighing too little all the time. Men are just unbelievable, aren’t they? Lol.

      Yes yes yes, they went crazy for the treats & they were less than $2 a piece. Zelda will love one!! ❀

      1. Good for you! I know, these guys know that it’s something hurtful deep down, but they feel obligated or something and that’s just ridiculous. Like, no girl is ever going to be unaware that she has gained a couple of pounds, it’s not like some revelation because a man decided to let her know. -_- Yesss exactly, and you’d think at least family would be nice and not say anything because they don’t want to hurt you! It’s just never necessary…. Unbelievable is a good word for it lol.
        Aw that sounds so great! I definitely want to pick one up for my princess then haha.

        1. YESSS! Exactly exactly exactly. There’s NO WAY a girl wouldn’t notice if she gained a few pounds & there’s no way she’s not already worried about it! I hope Zelda likes the little filets. πŸ™‚

  5. Oh my gosh they only put like two wontons on that plate with all that sauce!! I wondered if they dropped a few on the way over haha. Those summer rolls look oh so dreamy! Presentation is amazing. Your boyfriend really did capture all the food so well! That sushi looks so fresh & delicious.

    I bet those kittens were so happy!

    That shrimp cocktail looks bombbb. That cocktail sauce looks almost creamy- what is it made of?! Yummy.

    1. I KNOW! We ate the wontons right away & were like… “do we get a refill??” LOL. I wish we could eat summer rolls everyday. That wooden square plate was so cute, right?! & I was real proud of his photos. πŸ™‚ I’m ready to eat that sushi again hahaha.

      Yesss our babies loved the filets. They were so cute lickin’ their plates clean. ❀

      The creamy look is the horseradish! It's regular cocktail sauce with a ton of horseradish mixed in it lol.

  9. I use shaving gel. It’s the only way I don’t cut myself like crazy!
    I wear underwear and bras because I have to (damn excess skin).
    I never have brushed my teeth in the shower. We have electric brushes that are plugged in to the wall so we would have to get back out and put them on their charger.
    I actually use subtitles as well!!!
    I believe everyone has their own things that work for them. Not weird AT ALL!

    1. Weird! Your comment is on this post but I am pretty sure you meant it for the next one. πŸ˜›

      I never cut myself so I guess that’s why I don’t see the benefits of creams/gels! Oh! I want an electric toothbrush! I used to use mine in the shower when I had braces LOL. I would just bring it in & out with me. πŸ˜› That’s interesting how many people use the subtitles, too! I thought I was hard of hearing or something lol. & you’re right! Everyone has their own things. πŸ™‚

  10. Awh how rude of that guy to comment on your weight. Some people need to think before they speak.

      I loved that wooden plate they used for the summer rolls. They totally should’ve used the same style for all of their dishes. I think you’d really like the shrimp drunken noodles!! πŸ™‚
