Hey guys!! Last time I wrote a Journal Entry was Monday because Tuesday through Wednesday were very uneventful days. Boyfriend and I both had all the days off, we ate home cooked meals, and played our games. We had so much fun and time flew by all too quickly.
On Thursday, I really should have gone to work but, my lazy ass did not. I pulled the exact same crap as I did last week. 😡
YESTERDAY, boyfriend and I took an Uber to a Honda dealership nearly half an hour away. Our current car is really breaking down, making all the funky noises and stuff, so we are looking for a new one. We spent nearly 2 hours over there, trying to get approved to finance but, my credit is so weak due to only having one barely used credit card. It was considered too “new” and “fragile” and my income is unverifiable, I guess. We were pretty devastated to be denied for what seemed like the perfect car for us.
We got a ride from the car salesman (in the car that we want to buy) up to the bank down the street. He was so nice to bring us but, he did also need to cash his bonus check lol. I applied for a personal loan but I don’t have high hopes in receiving it. I am still awaiting approval… I am just super stressin’ because my credit was pulled twice in one day and it may not have even been for good reason. I am starting to feel like if I want a new car, I will have to buy it in full. UGH. Life is so hard.
On the bright side, the bank was a crosswalk away from BJ’s. Mackenzie has posted about this restaurant a few times over on her blog and her photos always left me droolin’. I KNEW there was one around here somewhere and I’m so so so happy we finally got to give it a try.
There was a short wait for a table so we walked to PetCo to look at animals. We saw the cats at the very end of the store but, got a text from the restaurant that our table was ready before we got to them. 😦 We only got to look through the reptiles and baby furballs. We also saw the teeniest tiniest blue frog. Like seriously smaller than a bead. I couldn’t even capture it in a picture… but I did get this li’l guy!!!!
I would love to have a tiny hamster but, my cats would probably eat it, right? LOL. Boyfriend and I were watching cats hunting in the wild on YouTube last night, it was CRAZY.
But, let’s get back to the food!!!
To share, we ordered the Chicken Pita Tacos with no yogurt crema and no feta cheese BUT, the first one that came out had both on top of them. It took until after we finished our main entrees to get the replacement one so our waitress took it off our tab. She was so darn sweet!!!
The pita bread was nice and fluffy but, the burnt crisp parts were yummy, too. I enjoyed the smoky, grill flavor of them so much. The innards were a little plain but, I can’t blame them since I asked for all the good stuff to be taken out. 😛
Boyfriend ordered the Crispy Jalapeno Burger and it was absolutely monstrous– just the way he likes them. 😀 It had fried jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, Chipotle mayo, red onions, tomatoes, AND fresh jalapenos on it. I had one bite and “mmm’d” out loud. The meat patty was cooked just right and had that same smoky, grill flavor as the pita bread… SO tasty!!
For me, I HAD to get the Seared Ahi Tuna salad that Mackenzie usually orders. It was so fun seeing it come to life in front of my eyes!! The tuna was nice and fresh, the outer sesame crust popped with flavor yet, was still subtle and didn’t take away from the fish, and oh my gosh, that dressing… it completely blew me away! I wasn’t even prepared for something THAT good.
Our waitress also offered us a free dessert for the late tacos but, we declined them. We weren’t that upset and I know I need that pizookie trio but, I had to be responsible and save it for a non-work day. 😛
We walked across the parking lot to a Starbucks after we finished eating and ordered our espressos before calling an Uber for pickup. Our driver was so cool and told us that there have been 27 establishments in Las Vegas that were given licenses to allow smoking weed indoors and Planet 13 (this huge dispensary/museum) has already started building their lounge. Awesome, huh!?
We smoked a blunt right when we got home and I immediately started getting ready for work since it was already almost 9 PM. We went to the bar and had a few cocktails, boyfriend dropped me off around midnight. It was pretty busy and I did alright but, MAN, I was exhausted by 3 AM. I couldn’t even talk anymore. I felt annoyed of myself because with the crowd, I could have stayed busy until probably 5 AM… but, I was weak. Boyfriend reminded me that we were walking around in the hot sun all day. He assured me that anyone would be tired and made me feel so much better about coming home… I just hope I can last longer tonight.
Today, we woke up a little before 2 PM and were both starving! I showered right away and then, we decided to go to Applebee’s. It’s close by and those half-priced apps were calling our names.
Boyfriend got the buffalo boneless wings but, the first order we got looked like they had been sitting under the heater for years so we sent them back. It was like our server knew they were old because he didn’t seem surprised when we told him. He ended up taking them off our tab, too!
The Wonton Chicken Tacos are a must-order every time we go to Applebee’s. They are so darn delicious. I love the sauce and the crisp shell. 😀
Boyfriend tried their Quesadilla Burger that looked appetizing to my mouth but scary to my stomach LOL. I didn’t even try a bite this time. 😛
I got the Maple something Salmon with fries and a house salad. The chili-lime vinaigrette I chose was so yummy but, the maple glaze was a little too sweet. The salmon was better plain and the fries were nice and hot but WOO-WEE, they put a lot of salt on them.
We went to Starbucks and ran a couple other errands before we could head home. I hopped onto WordPress right away and now, it’s about time for me to go do my hair and makeup… send me all the peppy energy, please!!! I need it!!!
I hope your week was loads better than mine and that you have an amazing rest of your weekend. ❤
