Journal Entry #231

Hiya babes. ❀ I haven’t written a Journal Entry since Friday so, we’ve got a lot of catching up to do!!

Boyfriend and I had a cocktail or two together before I went into work. It was one of the best nights I’ve had in awhile and I don’t even mean earnings wise. It was just easy, fun, and all of my clients were so super nice.

On Saturday, boyfriend made us dinner at home and we just did our usual ‘before I go to work’ routine. I had some Patron left in the freezer and I drank all of it before I went in. I guess it was more than I thought because I was pretty drunk for the rest of the night and I continued to take more shots when I got to work…

I came home with nearly the same profit as I did on Friday but, I wasn’t as happy with how my night went. I don’t even remember why. I just felt disappointed when I left, for no reason.

I was also very hungry so, we stopped at Blueberry Hill when boyfriend picked me up.

We had some hot black coffee to sober me up.

And we shared some deliciously greasy onion rings.

Boyfriend ordered his fave, the breaded meatloaf breakfast. It’s seriously out of this world (especially the freakin’ biscuits underneath) so I understand why he always gets it. Nothing is more hearty and homey.

I got the same thing as I did the last time we visited Blueberry Hill, too. The Meat Lover’s Skillet with over easy eggs and rye bread that tasted like stale mint leaves… ?

Neither of us were able to finish our plates but, we brought home the leftovers and ate ’em all the next day. πŸ™‚

Sunday, I woke up with a stuffy head and nose. I knew these dang allergies were on their way to me!! I was also kind of groggy from drinking so much, too. Luckily, we had nothing to do and nowhere to go. Boyfriend made dinner for us at home and I watched the whole second season of On My Block then, I started A Million Little Things right after. Both shows own my heart at the moment.

Yesterday, even though we had one more meal in the fridge to cook, I rolled out of bed at 3 PM and my first thought was… “must eat Red Pot,” lol. Of course, boyfriend was down to go when I suggested it… I mean, who could say “no” to such a thing?!

We shared some hot, black tea. It was absolutely delicious and silky smooth but, it didn’t stay warm inside the teapot for that long at all.

We chose our usual Spicy Herbal Mongolian for one side but, for the other, we felt a little daring. Most often, we choose the Mixed Mushroom Broth but, this time, we went with the Spicy Red Curry.

It was definitely not a mistake!! We liked it so much, next time we go, we’re switching out the Herbal Mongolian to try something new and keeping the Red Curry instead. πŸ™‚

When we got home from our hot hotpot date, I wrote up my unboxing post after using the last few items that I hadn’t tried in it yet. Boyfriend downloaded Skate 3 for us to play so once I published it, I shut the computer down and played a little XBOX with him. We didn’t go to bed until like 4 AM.

Today, we woke up pretty early (for us). I was awake around noon and boyfriend was awake a bit past 1 PM. We were really hoping to stay home all day but of course, our one phone charger went to shit. I read some blogs and a chapter of The Art of French Kissing before taking a shower. Around 4 PM, boyfriend made dinner. I watched the newest episode of Good Girls and the rest of the episode of A Million Little Things that I had fallen asleep on.

When we finished eating, we had to make a run to Target for a new charger. Fortunately, it works great!

I tried to make some sad excuses for mini chocolate muffins when I got home but, they turned out to be sugar cubes. 😦 I couldn’t even chew it when I took a bite. Boyfriend popped one into his mouth and swallowed it. I cringed and screamed “oh my gosh, don’t eat that!!” and he was, like… “why, it’s not that bad!?” as he chugged a gallon of a milk, LOL. I told him “I know you’re just saying that, I have a tongue, too!!” and he giggled and said, “I can even see the sugar granules in there…” I actually feel bad for him!! It was so disgusting. I’d be in a sugar coma if I ate one whole like that.

But anywho, after I pulled them out of the oven and declared them inedible, I started typing this.

Boyfriend and I are gonna play some Skate 3 again now. Tomorrow, I’ll be posting my Monthly Currentlys and my dad’s going to be landing in Vegas at a little past 10 PM. I don’t know if we’re going to see him right away or if we’ll just wait until Thursday.

We found out that boyfriend has to work this weekend so he won’t be able to make it to Cali. He doesn’t have anyone to take his shifts and doesn’t want to get fired for calling off on them. I hate sleeping alone. I already want to cry… LOL. I’m kidding, but not…

  1. I will be back to comment on this and whatever other posts I missed while I was under the weather, but I had to jump on here just to say OMG ONION RINGS!!!! Those are the exact ones I like!!! I will only eat the small, fat ones. I won’t eat the big, thin ones. I want a big ol’ meaty piece of onion.

    Ok talk to you later!

  2. Ok I’m back.

    So are you saying that you will be going to California whether Boyfriend can go or not? That will be sad and lonely so I hope something happens that enables him to go and NOT get in trouble at work. LOL

    I’m LOL-ing about the whole mini muffin drama.

    Are you trying out each chapter of The Art of French Kissing as you read them? LOL

    How do you like A Million Little Things? I liked it, then I didn’t, then I did, then they changed the night or time and I missed a million little episodes.

    I need ALL the food in your post, especially the onion rings and the red curry.

    1. Yes, I was just going to go to Cali with my dad and his wife if he couldn’t make it. I would have def been sad though! The mini muffins were so terrible!! & The Art of French Kissing was just a normal novel, it wasn’t one of those lesson or step-by-step books LOL.

      I am still loving A Million Little Things. I’m on episode 13 and there are only 17 so I’m almost done. 😦 All of the episodes are on Hulu so you could catch up on the ones you missed, if you wanted to!

      The onion rings & the red curry were so delish!! ❀


  3. Sometimes I have a day where I just feel on top of my game and the next day circumstantially will be the same, but I’ll feel soo off for some reason. I feel like hormones/serotonin levels fluctuate and mess with us more than we even realize!

    Okay if your boyfriend likes that meal, you gotta take him to Cracker Barrel- lol! That’s the place for comfort food!

    I LOVE A Million Little Things- it is so well done, pulls at the heart strings & entertaining too.

    Oh my gosh, that curry- I neeeed. YUM!

    Haahha- I just cracked up at your exchange about the β€œsugar cube” muffins. Too funny. Your bf seems so happy-go-lucky! Reminds me of my man- I feel like you and I are similar in so many ways- so makes sense that they would be too!

    Hope everything went well with your Dad visiting! Can’t wait to hear all about it!

    1. You are right, Nurse Mackenzie!! It was definitely my hormones!! Mine get SO out of whack before my period. Why is that?!?

      We saw a couple Cracker Barrels this past weekend & my dad said their food is good, too! He rarely likes American food so I really can’t wait to try it now!! Both boyfriend & I are fans of the comfort style food. πŸ™‚ (or maybe all kinds of food LOL). Those sugar cube muffins were the worsttt!!! But I love that we are all so alike. πŸ™‚ If only we lived nearer to each other, we could double date often!!!

      ❀ Can't wait to share all about it, thank you, babe!!!

        And I SO wish we could do a double date ! oneee dayyyy

  4. I still haven’t been to a hot pot. Not sure Ciel will eat anything from there so that sucks lol.
    Awh I’m sorry the muffins didn’t turn out right. I’m hoping to make some of cheddar biscuits from red lobster tomorrow so wish me luck. I got boxed mix in case mine dont turn out right
    Also, sorry I haven’t been on here much I’m currently trying to catch up on missed posts

    1. Ahhh, I’m sorry you have a picky little eater! Hopefully he grows out of that when he’s older.

      The muffins were terrible… lol. I don’t even know where I went wrong. 😦 I am cracking up that you got boxed mix in case yours didn’t turn out right. That’s such a good idea though! I bet yours were better than the box!!

      Don’t worry!! ❀ My dad was in town & I hadn't been on for nearly a week, too. Miss you!! ❀

      1. I’m not too sure he will because of his sensory issues, but I can hope right? 🀣 on the bright side he has started to eat cod so that’s a huge win for us. He thinks its chicken lmao.
        And I didn’t get to make mine from scratch, we were running low on time so the boxed one came in handy. I will* make them from scratch hopefully this weekend so have as extras and snack lol
        Yeah I just finished reading your recap of the days you spent with your dad this morning. Loved reading all of that and everything you guys ate!
        I miss ya too!! πŸ’œ

        1. Aww that’s so cute that he’s eating cod! Even adults I know don’t like to eat fish of any kind. Keep tricking him lol. πŸ˜‰

          I hope your biscuits turn out wonderfully this weekend! How were the boxed ones?!

          1. I made the biscuits over the weekend and they were so so good! homemade ones, they’re not exactly like the real thing, but it comes pretty darn close to them for being homemade. the texture was on point too. the boxed ones were delicious too, but now that i know i can make them from scratch, and i know what ingredients are going into them, i feel much better about it.. i have been trying to stay away from boxed anything lately, including cakes so if i bake anything, it will all have to be from scratch lol

  5. Awww I would feel the SAME way if I had to be without Joshua. 😦 One of Joshua’s old friends was getting married (the wedding is now postponed for other reasons thankfully) and we couldn’t afford to go and they got all mad about Joshua not coming and even told Joshua “your wife will be fine” “your dog will be fine” and I’m like who the heck do you think you are?! You don’t know our life!! >.> . Also that’s no way to get someone to travel all the way to Alaska for your wedding…why would I want to come now?!
    Anywayyyy lol all that to say, I feel the same way about not being together!
    I’ve never been to Red Pot but it looks amazing! I will have to see if there is one in Virginia near us.
    Also isn’t is sooo disappointing when food doesn’t turn out?! What a shame about those muffins. It makes me so sad and frustrated when my food is a fail. :/

    1. RUDE!!!! I would have messaged back like “hello, wife speaking… I will NOT be fine.” Lol, screw them. That would make neither of us want to go, too.

      There may not be a Red Pot specifically but you may find a similar restaurant. πŸ™‚

      I am so used to my food being fails LOL I had already expected it before I started mixing anything. I no longer feel disappointment.

      1. I know right! I could NOT believe it. I actually wrote a message back as Joshua being like “this is rude and uncalled for” and pointed out that they don’t know our life and it’s ridiculous for them to treat us as they did. And then they were just like “hope you can make it” -_- and a month ago they just called randomly asking for Joshua’s help on something. Like, are you kidding me?! Makes me so mad. Sooo that’s my drama. πŸ˜‰

        Haha aw well I guess that’s one way to not feel disappointed anymore! lol πŸ˜‰

        1. LOL I am glad you wrote back to them. Not all couples are the same and it actually really baffles me that some couples can sleep apart but I’d never say that to them… I hope Joshua didn’t end up helping them with whatever they needed but I’m just being petty for you πŸ˜‰ LOL.

          1. Right, I’d never tell another couple my opinions about their life! Lol of course he helped them because Joshua is too kind. I, on the other hand, was steaming mad the whole time he was on the phone lol. πŸ˜‰
