Phew!! We finally did our taxes yesterday. It just feels so good to be done with them but, damn, did the prices go up or what? How annoying that the easier, cheaper forms were eliminated.
Our appointment was at 6 PM and we still haven’t gotten our car fixed so we didn’t trust that it would make it all the way to our tax lady’s house. We woke up around 1 PM. We both showered and hung out until around 5:15 PM then, we called an Uber to take us where we needed to go. Everything went nice and smoothly!
We called another Uber when we finished up. Since we hate driving to The Strip on our own, we took the opportunity and got dropped off at the Bellagio. I wanted to check out the new Japanese Garden setup and we had never been to their buffet before.
When we got there, there was a small line but, it went pretty quickly. I was most excited for the hot crab legs and I didn’t even know they were going to be served!!
I really hate how they slit each leg, for “easy” cracking. They don’t even put them at good spots! Cracking them on my own always turns out so much better. They were really meaty, perfectly salty, and delicious though!! I had two plates. ❤ But, I got cut up on my left palm by the pokers. It hurts so bad in the shower/under water even if they are small scratches.
I was really disappointed with the desserts. None of them were any good. 😛 I did like that there was a self-service drink station so we didn’t have to wait around for a server to get us our coffees that tasted more like hot dishwater.
On our way to the Uber pick-up zone, we stopped to walk through and photograph the Japanese Garden. Bellagio changes this little setup every season. My dad saw a video on Facebook and sent it to me when they first put this all up. I admit, I thought it would be bigger and a little more detailed but, that’s not to say, it wasn’t incredibly beautiful and romantic. Because it was.
It was hard to believe that every single flower/plant is real. They are all so luscious and full of life, boyfriend had to actually touch one when I told him they weren’t fake.
We were especially impressed with the big flowers made out of tons of small flowers ^. There were a couple of them around! Whoever tends this garden has got to have one heck of a green thumb!!!
Boyfriend’s favorite part were the big birds (below). They continuously opened and closed their beaks!!
I wouldn’t have even spotted the ones hanging from the ceiling if he didn’t point them out. I was too focused on everything else around me that was eye-level, y’know? I’m so glad he didn’t let me miss them!!!
We had to ask a few employees where the pick-up zone was but, we eventually found it. We relaxed on a bench, waiting for our ride. We hopped in right when we saw her and accidentally left my freakin’ water bottle there!! That’s the second one I’ve forgotten somewhere in just this month. 😦
We made it home around 10 PM. I wrote up my Boxycharm post and published it quite late. I know it was past midnight when it went live. I watched the rest of the newest Good Girls episode and the newest The Act episode before bed. I was pretty tuckered out so I didn’t read at all.
Today, we both woke up around 1 PM. We thought we wouldn’t have to do anything but, we needed to go to Target for some Drano again. My hair is always clogging that shit up.
I took a shower then, watched some random episodes of Guy’s Grocery Games on Hulu while boyfriend made dinner. We continued watching Guy while we ate our yummy food.
When we finished eating, we let our tums rest a little, smoked a blunt, then headed out to run a couple errands.
Our first stop was Target. I only bought a couple extra things that weren’t on the list so I’d say our trip was successful. 😉
On our list was: Tide Pods, Drano, paper towels, hand soap, a new water bottle, and cat litter. Buying the Pods and paper towels qualified us for a $5 gift card. We didn’t even know it but, the checkout machine was like “grab a giftcard and scan it” so of course, I did but, I didn’t know how to use it right away because the access code needed to be scratched-off which I didn’t realize until after we paid… but, oh well! There’s always next time, isn’t there?!
A couple things I spotted that weren’t on our list…
Fish Tacos with catnip and a scrunchy sound inside for my kitty cats and two This Bar Saves Lives from the implanted Starbucks.
AND three of the CUTEST mugs ever, ever. The white one says “Grumpy but gorgeous,” the gray one says “Cozy Queen,” and the animal is a girly sloth. 😀 I couldn’t choose between the three and they were all under $3 so I just got them all.
My cats were loving their new tacos for a minute but, then got bored, ate, and fell asleep. I’m using my sloth mug for some hot black coffee at this very moment and it’s SUPER lightweight. I’m scared it’s going to break easily but, the heat isn’t unbearable when you touch the cup so maybe it’s stronger than I suspect.
I’ll show you my new water bottle and hand soap in my upcoming April Currentlys… 😉
I quickly snapped those photos (above) of my Target buys, got a little sidetracked, smoked a blunt while resizing all the photos for this post, then started typing this.
I’m finally about to watch The Dirt now!!! Then, I’ll start on Season 02 of On My Block. It was just released on Netflix today, I think… or is it the 29th? Ugh I don’t remember. I’ll have to see after this… either way, I am so excited for both!!!
My Aunt wants to meet up for dinner tomorrow at around 6:40 PM. If it’s not too late afterwards and I’m not feeling like a big balloon, I may head into work.
I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week so far. ❤
