Hey friends! My last Journal Entry was published Friday night so, we’re going back to the past. 🙂
Boyfriend and I had a cocktail together, at home, before he dropped me off at work. I got there around midnight and didn’t leave until past 4 AM. It was a really frustrating night and I had a few sips of vodka which, I guess, was enough to make me super mean and crabby.
Looking back, with a clear mind, I do still think I was in the right when I got one of my colleagues in “trouble.” She was seriously trying to get in on a dance with a guy who was ALREADY in line with me and my friend. She was all like, “ooo, this man looks like he can handle three women” and maybe he could have but, what the heck? I had only seen her around once or twice before and I don’t even know her stage name. The bouncer pulled her away and made her leave after I whispered at him to do so, lol.
On Saturday, boyfriend went to work and I spent my day writing up my Recipe Reviews and giving myself a mani/pedi while watching TV.
When boyfriend got home, I only had a few fingers left to paint. I finished up watching Paradise Hotel while I waited for them to dry. I can’t believe they ended the episode like that! I read that the show has already been cancelled but, will continue until this season is over. They started with two episodes a week but, FOX is only letting them go on once now. The cast is just… not “it,” y’know? They all truly suck so it makes sense that no one is watching it (except me LOL).
When the episode ended, I went to do my hair and makeup. Boyfriend went to the store to buy us more booze and mixers. I barely did anything at work when I got there (except a lot of stage shows). I hung out with one client pretty much the entire time. We just sat and took Patron shots until he finally declared he was ready for a dance. I only sat with him this long because there was nowhere else to sit… but, we still spent less time than I was hoping we would together… whatthefuckever. I found one more client that was ready right away then, I texted boyfriend to come pick me up.
We passed a Denny’s on the way to Blueberry Hill so, I suggested we switch it up and see if the place had anything new on their menu.
It was probably my biggest regret of the entire weekend. I got pancakes on the side, too, but they hadn’t arrived yet when I took the photo… they were disgusting anyways and boyfriend’s skillet wasn’t much better.
On Sunday, we needed that warm, soothing ramen broth for our bellies. We were not in the mood to try somewhere new and possibly be let down again so, we went to our number one favorite spot– Ramen Sora.
There was around a 15 min. wait when we got there but, the place was so cramped and annoying, it felt much longer. When we got seated, we were both starving and ready to order right away. We both got the Killer Spicy Miso Broth and it was SOOOO good. I hadn’t had the Killer Spicy in AWHILE because it really messes with my digestive system but, gosh, the flavor is WORTH it.
And I KNOW the last time I went out for ramen I said I don’t like Miso Broth, and really, I don’t, unless it’s at Ramen Sora. 😛
We also got the Spicy Pork Fried Rice to share. We ended up having to pack half of it to-go though because we were too full… we never did eat it. 😦
On the way home, we stopped at Starbucks and tried two of their new summer frappucinos. I got the Caramel Ribbon Crunch and boyfriend got the S’mores. I got ONE crunchy in my whole entire drink and the rest tasted no different than a regular Caramel frapp. I was SO SAD. The S’mores was okay but, boyfriend asked for “light on the chocolate.” I had one sip and wished for heavier chocolate, lol.
When we got home, I hopped onto the Sims 4 and played for the rest of the night. My freakin’ husband was abducted by aliens in the middle of the night for the FOURTH TIME in his life. Every other time, he has came back dazed and confused, where a simple nap was able to cure it. THIS TIME, he was PREGNANT. I was thinkin’, “aw, he’s getting a little plump with his old age” because he had just turned into an Elder, but he kept getting bigger and a few [Sim] days later… I was like, “OKAY HE’S PREGNANT OR SOMETHING.”
I knew I wasn’t going crazy when I clicked on him to interact with and it was possible to ‘ask him his due date’ and to ‘feel his baby’… the little icon on the bottom was a pacifier, saying something strange was going on and he wasn’t feeling well but, I truly thought he had just eaten something spoiled. I finally put two and two together that THE ALIENS IMPREGNATED MY MALE SIM. I didn’t even know that was possible.
When the baby came out, it was an all blue girl. That couple is elderly now, so I didn’t want to burden them with having to take care of a newborn. I sent her back to her “homeworld” immediately.
On Monday, we went out to eat at the cutest little restaurant about 20 minutes away. Boyfriend groaned about having to drive 15 miles but, I really wanted to go!
Like, look at that exterior and THE NAME?! Flower Child?! C’mon. We HAD to go.
It’s one of those restaurants where you order at the counter, get a number, find a spot, and then someone brings you your food when it’s ready.
We wanted to go outside and sit in this shaded open area but, man, it was COLD. It has not warmed up as usual here in Las Vegas yet.
After taking shots of the beautiful artwork, we headed indoors and sat down, at a small table-for-two, in the middle of the restaurant.
We spotted fresh juice/tea dispensers so we had to get a cup and try as many as we could.
First, we tried their Signature Lemonade. SOMEHOW, it was too sour and too sweet… all at the same time? I didn’t like it.
It’s no surprise I was a fan of their Passionfruit Black Tea though. It was fresh, unsweetened, and delicious.
That brownie you see in the corner was pretty good, too. They were dairy-free and gluten free. I liked the chocolaty flavor but, the texture was dry and crumbly. Sometimes gritty… I wouldn’t buy it again but, I did end up eating it all.
We tried their homemade hummus which wasn’t bad except for the strong Kalamata olive flavor. The chunks dripped lots of juices so even if you didn’t straight up eat them, you could still taste them. I hate both Kalamata and black olives so this wasn’t my favorite… it was also a bit too oily.
There were a bunch of different sauteed veggie plates to choose from. It was hard to choose one but, the green beans won out in the end. They were Sichuan-inspired, with a little kick of spice and soy. I thought they could have been served warmer but, boyfriend enjoyed these how they came– sorta cold.
He ordered a wrap called, The Rebel. It had grass-fed steak, charred onion, port salut cheese, arugula, and horseradish yogurt inside. Their tortillas are made in house (and were also used for the hummus dippers). I had one bite and fell in love. It was oh so yummy.
I got the Mother Earth Bowl with steak. There was all kinds of stuff in there! Ancient grains, sweet potatoes, portobello mushrooms, cucumber, pistachio pesto, charred onion, leafy greens, red pepper miso vinaigrette, and hemp seed. Without the steak, the bowl was clearly marked “vegan” so I had no questions about if it included dairy or not– I absolutely loved that!
We stopped at Starbucks for our shots of espresso and also went through a car wash before going home.
We upgraded from the $3 car wash but, I don’t think it did much anyways. Our car looked the same and the dryer left her all wet!!
When we got home, boyfriend’s silly butt left the car keys in the ignition and locked the door. He had to ask our downstairs neighbor for a handy dandy wire hanger and screwdriver. He got in within like 5 minutes while I was laughing my booty off at him, drinking my coffee and munching on my brownie. Just to make it even funnier, this is NOT the first time he has done this. Try the THIRD in just two years time.
When we finally got into our home, we smoked a blunt before I started getting ready. I went to work completely sober and had a really nice night. It was slow and quiet… without having taken a single shot, I was the most hyper and loud, which is super rare.
Right as I was texting boyfriend to come pick me up, around 3 AM, I heard my name get called by the DJ. I told boyfriend “never mind, I may have some more work” and as I was putting my things back into my locker, my fully nude colleague comes running in to grab me. She was in the middle of a dance with a client that I had danced for earlier in the night. He wanted to include me in their last half hour so I got lucky and just hopped right in. 😀 Lesson learned: I should so work on Mondays more often.
Yesterday was grocery shopping day. I chose three recipes when I woke up, took a shower, and wrote the list. We went to Sprouts, as usual. This time, it was a more organized CHAOS. There were, once again, boxes everywhere but at least everything was stocked. All of their yellow mangoes were so bad though. It took me forever to find two good ones.
We wanted another sandwich from the deli so we put the order in before we even started shopping. It was waiting for us when we were ready to check out. 😀
I customized one with turkey, bacon, tomato, lettuce, red onions, and light mayo on top of marble rye bread. The bacon was crispy, the veggies were fresh, and that turkey was… mmm.
We had to stop at the Family Dollar for coffee filters on our way home. WHY WOULDN’T SPROUTS SELL THEM? Or are we missing them somewhere? We looked high and low, man.
Boyfriend put the groceries away, we smoked a blunt, and then I started playing Sims 4 while he made us dinner. I turned the game off to watch the new episode of Good Girls while we ate but right when my plate was empty, I paused the show and got back to gaming. 😀
Boyfriend was actually playing Sims 4 right along with me on his XBOX. 😀 We drank lots of black coffee and stayed up until the sun came up around 5 AM. We had such a blast!!!
Today, I woke up around 2 PM. I read blogs on my Reader until boyfriend woke up, not too long after. He got up to do the dishes, feed the kitties, and roll us a blunt. I continued to read blogs.
After we smoked, I took a shower and he started making dinner. I did a face mask when I came out and then checked my notifications on WordPress. We watched a bit more of the Good Girls episode while we ate but, I paused it when my plate was empty again. We still have about half an hour to go… it seems like the finale and I don’t want it to end. Plus, I really wanted to start on writing this!
It has been quite the long one and my Sims are waiting for me so I gotta go, LOL. It’s back to work for both me and boyfriend tomorrow. *big sigh*
Hope you’ve had a nice week so far!!! ❤ I’m gonna try to get my May ’19 Ipsy Glam Bag Plus post out tomorrow!!!
