I am a whole new person today. I finally went to Lenscrafters to get my dang eyes checked. I knew I needed a new prescription and I knew I needed it badly.
But, let’s rewind a little.
Yesterday, boyfriend had the day off. We woke up kinda late at nearly 3 PM and we knew we wanted to do AYCE something for dinner. For once, we weren’t in the mood for sushi so we went to the Chinese buffet we usually go to when we do called, Hibachi Supreme Buffet.
I put together this big plate of noodles, veggies, and meat and had the cook grill it up. It was pretty tasty and really the best the buffet had to offer so I ate it all and was pretty much too full to have any of the other garbage. 😛 None of the dessert looked appealing to us so, we walked across the parking lot to U-Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory was also inside this shop so all of their sweet treats were displayed in a case up front, too.
Of course, the Valentine’s Day Choco-Covered Oreos caught our attention. We got one each then, went to fill up our cups with sorbets and frozen yogurts.
I regret not getting more fruity flavors and I was sad that there weren’t many cereal toppings available.
We headed home afterwards and I spent the night doing some more blog clean-up and now I’m all the way down to 30-something percent of media storage. How crazy, right? I would have never had to pay for a personal plan yet if I had known how to save space from the beginning. I am so ashamed lol.
Today, I set my alarm to 01:00 PM but still didn’t wake up until near 2! I quickly used the restroom and took a shower. I got out at 02:30 when my appointment was set at 03:00 PM!
We had very low air in one of our back tires so we stopped at two gas stations that had an OUT OF SERVICE sign on their air pumps. Luckily, the third gas station was the charm. Boyfriend quickly filled up the tires and we headed to The Boulevard Mall where Lenscrafters was located.
You won’t believe it but, we were in the office signing papers right on time. 🙂 They tried to trick me into paying extra to not do the drops and dilate my eyes thing but I told them it would be fine if they did that to me since boyfriend drives anyways. They didn’t even end up doing the drops or dilating my eyes at all?! They even gave me a free pair of contact lenses with my prescription to walk out with… no blurry, sensitive vision. No extra cost…
I did knowingly get sucked into paying for a year’s worth of contacts though even if it would have been quite a bit cheaper at Walmart. I just wanted to get them sent to me ASAP. It feels so good to be able to see again. The doc showed me how I was seeing with my old prescription to how I’m seeing now with my new one, and woo-weee… I was nearly blind! They were mad because Minnesota has 2 years on their prescriptions and here in Vegas it’s only 1. They were like “no wonder you can barely see anymore!” LOL.
I still need to find somewhere to buy glasses but I’m glad my contact lenses are on the way and I won’t have to worry about ’em for a whole year. 😀 I can’t believe how bad my vision had gotten. It feels soso darn good to see clearly again!!
While boyfriend was waiting for me, he laid in one of those massage chairs that you pay to turn on and the mall manager walked by and swiped his card for boyfriend to have a free 15 minutes. He was finishing his last 3 minutes when I walked out of my appointment lol.
We had planned to eat somewhere in there but, we couldn’t find anything that looked appetizing enough. We drove down the road and said we would just stop at any restaurant we saw… it ended up being Wingstop which we haven’t been to (in Vegas) before.
We ordered the Family Pack which came with 24 wings with 3 flavors, veg sticks, and lg fries. Boyfriend had a soda and we also added the fried Cajun corn.
That corn was freakin’ splendid!! I had never heard of fried corn before but I want more. 😀 For our BONE-IN wing flavors, we chose the spiciest Atomic, Original Hot, and Louisiana Rub. The Atomic was YUM. It wasn’t burn your face spicy but, it def had a nice kick. The flavor was just so peppery and wonderful, too. Mmm, mmm! I don’t have many complaints about the other two wing flavors, either. I liked it all!
We had 3 wings left but could NOT eat them so we packed them to-go. 😛 We had to stop at the dispensary before we could head home. I spent a little time watching some videos comparing the Kobo Clara HD to the All-New Kindle Paperwhite because the Kindle is finally on sale again. I still can’t decide which one I want though and it just makes me want to buy neither! Walmart has started selling Kobos now and they have this new subscription called Walmart eBooks which is similar to (AKA exactly the same as) Kindle Unlimited. Now it’s Amazon vs. Walmart and the decision keeps getting tougher!
I tried to renew my Broadway subscription but the website is saying I don’t have an account. Red letters pop up saying: “Current Broadway subscribers: contact Patron services if you are having issues with your account.” So I am thinking this is happening to a lot of other folks, too? I guess I’ll have to call tomorrow and see what the heck is up. Kind of annoying, if you ask me.
A sweet lady named Alice M. who works for Zoya e-mailed me earlier today and told me they’d have my correct nail lacquer shipped to me right away and she was not kidding. I’ve got the tracking code and it has started its journey to me already! What wonderful customer service. 😀 I am so happy it wasn’t a complete hassle.
