Journal Entry #272

Hey babes! After I published my entry on Sunday, I went straight to playing Sims 4 for the rest of my night. πŸ˜€

Yesterday, we went to Chipotle. I tried their Barbacoa meat for the first time; I still mixed in half steak but, I reeeeally enjoyed it. I will continue getting it from now on. Boyfriend got his usual, chicken.

We went to Starbucks for our iced espressos, came home, smoked a blunt, and wrote my book review for Roomies, then I got ready for work. I had a cocktail while attempting to organize my Goodreads TBR. I have nearly 1,000 books on there so it’s definitely going to take awhile. I’m also previewing them all, if possible, and deleting the ones not written in first person.

I left for work at 10 PM and it was quite the decent crowd. A regular of mine visited and started off my night right. I accidentally confused a detail about him with another one of my regulars but, luckily, he let it slide! I stayed busy until around 2:30 AM, did one more stage set, and then called boyfriend to pick me up.

For some reason, even though we had Chipotle for dinner, I wanted to try the 24hr Taco Bell Cantina on The Strip.

It’s basically the same as any other Taco Bell BUT, it has frozen alcoholic beverages and never closes.

Unsurprisingly, there were lots of drunk people stumbling around, acting a fool everywhere. LOL. I seriously just love watching them all, it’s the best part about being on The Strip. We wanted to try one of the frozen concoctions but, I didn’t want to get sick from drinking too much since I had a couple more at work already. Instead, we both indulged on their Baja Blast soda. It’s yummy but, extra sweet so I could barely drink more than a few sips.

Boyfriend got the combo that came with 2 Chalupas and a hard shell taco. I did the one with a Nachos Bell Grande and a soft shell taco. I was sad my chips were a bit stale.

It was fun finally going and seeing all the hype. It’s crazy that people can get married there, and that they actually and truly do it! We still have to go back and try one of the special drinks some day but, we probably can go years and years without ever eating that food again… πŸ˜›

And yes, I did wake up with the biggest stomachache today at around 1:30 PM.

I started reading a new book, Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck & Fortune by Roselle Lim. I’m only 16% through but am already in love. The writing is so beautiful and the story is heartwarming.

When boyfriend woke up, I took a shower and found some new recipes. We headed to Sprouts after running a few other errands. We came home and put the groceries away then, went to Ramen Sora for dinner. I was too hungry to wait for boyfriend to prep and cook a whole a meal.

For our appetizer, we shared a plate of Gyoza. πŸ™‚ Yum, yum!

We both got the Killer Spicy Miso Ramen with added corn. The egg was a bit overcooked today but, the broth was on point! They definitely added in the spice and I SO appreciated it. ❀

I had already decided, when I came home from work last night/this morning, that I’d be taking tonight and tomorrow off. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my night playing Sims 4 again, hehe. Stay tuned for my August Boxycharm and Currentlys posts– the content is all ready but, I need to take a coooouple more photos before I can starting writing them up!!

Hope you’ve all had an amazing start to your week! ❀

OH! And if you haven’t entered my giveaway yet, GET TO IT! I’ll be picking a winner on Thursday (September 5th)!!

          1. If you ever get just the bowl you can ask for you tortilla on the side heated up!!! All a bowl really is is a deconstructed burrito lol

  2. Hey girl!
    Weeks going well thank you.
    I dont think we have chipotle in the UK… if we do, I’ve never seen one.
    Well I had to read your taco bell about 3 times…. people get married at Taco Bell?
    Like a drive through or at the counter???
    What?!? I’m going to have to YouTube that lol!

    1. Yay!! So good to hear your week is going well, love. ❀ I don't think there is Chipotle in the UK, I remember another blogger telling me so. Maybe one day they will expand out there! You gotta try it! & YEAH, people get married there!! Crazy, right?? They go into a backroom & up some stairs, I think? There was closed off door saying what they offered in the marriage pack LOL. Did you watch a YouTube video?!


  3. Everything looks so yummy!! πŸ’—I used to not really like Chipotle, now all of a sudden I love it lol!! I always get the chicken burrito bowls. Their food is usually super fresh and yummy. Guess I was just being a hater before hehe!! πŸ˜‚The 24 hour taco bell sounds cool! Alejandro is obsessed with taco bell so that sounds like his dream! Can’t believe people get married there too…so funny!! But not gonna lie a taco bell wedding kinda sounds like it’d be a great time!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. You know what?! I used to be a Chipotle hater, too until I realized I like the bowls but the burritos are just too much lol. The 24hr Taco Bell is pretty cool to have! It is super funny that people get married there but hey, they get some free Taco Bell champagne, a big box of tacos, & t-shirts lol.

    1. The drinks all sounded pretty good but, I have a feeling they are more sweet than alcoholic! A lot of people were slurping on them in there! & isn’t it wild that people marry there? LOL I once had a couple come into my work with their newlywed t-shirts!!

  4. I’m proud of you for finally trying the Barbacoa at Chipotle! I had to admit I was so disappointed in it because shredded beef is my favorite for tacos/burritos, etc. but I find their flavoring to be too dang overpowering. I will stick with the steak.

    Ohmygosh I love organizing my Goodreads shelves!!!! Checked to make sure I’m following you on there. Yep, I am. You said you’re deleting the ones NOT written in 1st person. I was thinking you don’t like books written in first person so did you mean you’re deleting the ones that ARE written in 1st person? Or do I have you backwards? I personally do NOT like books written in 1st person. I need whatever person goes like this “Ed was thinking…Susan was thinking…”

    I need to be in everyone’s heads.

    24-hour Taco Bell!!!!! I see you’re not a fan, but they are one of my favorites!!!!! But yah, stale chips suck.

    I can totally relate to: “I was too hungry to wait for boyfriend to prep and cook a whole a meal.”
    Whenever I go to the grocery on a Sunday afternoon, I know we are definitely eating takeout. So funny though, to stuff the fridge and cabinets full of food and then say “There! No let me go out and pick up something for dinner!”

    Mmm goyza!!! I love them. I could eat nothing but them for a meal. But that Killer Spicy Miso Ramen with added corn is high on my Foodie Bucket List. I look forward to the day I can write a blog post that says “Today I had that Killer Spicy Miso Ramen Hunida is always raving about…”

    The more I hear about Sims the more I wish I had a device on which to play such things. I wish the dang company I work for didn’t block us from doing anything but work-related stuff on our computers. It would be a lovely computer to play Sims on. Sigh…Why can’t they just lock us out of that kind of stuff during work hours but open it up after hours and weekends????

    1. You’re right! The barbacoa does have quite the seasoning, super strong. I’m not sure I’d be happy with it if I didn’t have the regular steak mixed in, too!

      I have never organized my Goodreads shelves, it’s such a mess & I don’t think I’ll ever be completely done at this rate LOL. I think you have me backwards but, it’s okay!! I only like books written in first person, you are third person reader. πŸ™‚ I feel the opposite though, I feel like I can’t get into anyone’s head that way!

      Eh, Taco Bell is not my favorite because of how it makes my stomach feel lol, the food isn’t worth it to me but it’s not gross or anything.

      It does feel weird to go grocery shopping then out to eat! Today, we went shopping again & dinner is still cooking. It’s 8PM & I’m dying!!!

      Gyoza really are so yummy!! ❀ I don't know if I could ever eat enough to fill me up lol. I sure hope you get to come visit & try the ramen one day, I would love to have dinner with you there!! ❀

      That sucks that you have a nice computer but can't even do anything but work on it. They really should allow you do whatever as long as YOU don't care if they can see what it is, right? I wonder if you'd really like the Sims though!

  5. Love chipotle haha. I stopped getting meats and always end up getting the sofritas. Still filling and yummy.
    I’m aware of your enormous library of books in your goodreads I actually browsed through your lists for any titles that sounded interesting and added them to mine 🀣🀣🀣
    I’d be into that taco bell cantina. Lol. Frozen alcoholic drinks tend to me some of my fave. Anyway I went to taco bell this past week as well and ended up getting their triple double (double triple?) Crunchwrap lmao I hadnt gotten that food in a long time either but I’m sure I wont be getting any fast food for a while i really need to make some changes in my diet πŸ˜ͺ
    Anyway cant wait to see your posts. I really need to announce a winner for my giveaway as well I ended up taking a hiatus without meaning to lol

    1. I didn’t realize the sofritas weren’t meat until recently so that’s why I haven’t tried it lol. Maybe I’ll mix it in with some steak next time, just to taste. πŸ˜›

      LOL my GoodReads TBR list is unmanageable! I can’t wait to have it all organized but I don’t think it’ll ever happen at this rate!! I hope you found some good books to read when you browsed through it. πŸ˜€

      I want to go back to try all the flavors of Taco Bell Cantina’s frozen alcohol lol. You would love walking The Strip because there are SO many different frozen alcohol places to try. πŸ˜€ Fast food always makes me feel so terrible & regretful, I gotta quit eating it, too!

      I still need to take swatch pictures of the eyeshadow palette then, I should have my Aug Boxy up. I’m so late with it! Did you pick the winner yet?! πŸ˜€

      1. Oh LOL when I found out it was tofu, it was around the time I had started eating so I was like “gimme” and I never looked back! Sure I love and still eat chicken, but anytime I’m able to make a “vegetarian” choice when eating out, I do it.
        I found lots of good books in there I believe, I’m sure I will add a few more the more you review LOL πŸ™‚
        Ah yay the best thing about Vegas must be the drinks then haha my faveeee!

        1. I really don’t like tofu unless it’s in soup & I am opposite… I have to have meat everyday, lol. πŸ˜›

          I’m glad you found some good books on my list!! I would say that most people come to Vegas to drink, maybe even more than to gamble. I picked my winner but haven’t gotten any packing material to send it all out yet so it’s okay, lol!!

          1. I understand. It’s hard to make it taste good or get some strong flavor out of it. Its actually one of the reasons Alex doesnt like it as much lol
            Ah I see I sent both packages yesterday, I hope the one that’s being sent to Canada makes it to her ok! I wasnt able to put it in a box because it would have been more expensive lol

            1. I have to disagree about what you said about mushrooms!! I could eat them pan-fried with just olive oil & salt, or oven-roasted with plain salt & pepper!!

              I am the worst. I still haven’t sent my box. I am about to just have UPS pack everything up for me.


              1. I got confused and went back to look at what I said haha. I wasnt talking about mushrooms, though we do have a conversation about it in another post? Anyway I was talking about tofu, its hard to give it flavor lol. At least in my experience. I havent gotten a good recipe down that I love love and is exploding with flavor besides the homemade sofritas (from chipotle), a honey sriracha tofu recipe from pinterest, and using tofu as an alternative for ground beef for taco Tuesdays or for homemade crunchwraps (taco bell). So yeah. I only got three tofu recipes down. My fave Japanese restaurant makes some bomb ass hot fried tofu and I havent been able to find a recipe that seems to come close to it. Which is unfortunate because that’s literally the only way ciel will eat it 😩😩
                Anyway, enough about tofu lmao. I sent my packages out last week. I hope the girls get them this week lol

                1. LOL oh my gosh, my bad. We did have another convo about mushrooms going on so I totally got confused. πŸ˜‚ sorry!!

                  You guys make homemade crunch wraps?!? Yum!!! & that’s so cute Ciel eats the Japanese tofu. At least you can get it at the restaurant until you figure out the recipe. πŸ™‚

                  I still haven’t got my package sent out. Last year, it took me about this long, too. I don’t know what’s wrong with me! Lol.

                  1. LOL no worries! We literally have like 5 different convos so it’s easy to get confused sometimes. Especially when I don’t reply for days! Forgive me 😦 LOL
                    YES! πŸ™‚ The seasoning for the meat or tofu isnt the same, we just got some taco seasoning from the store and some nacho cheese, but everything else is pretty straight forward. I love making them and so does Alex. My stomach can’t handle fast food anymore so I have to make due with “recreating” things at home LOL
                    hahaha well, may I ask again then? have you sent it yet? LOL i’ts been three days since you sent me this comment haha. I can keep reminding you if you’d like haha

                      Didn't you post the crunchwraps before? I feel like you did, it's coming back to me? If not… could you?! LOL.

                      My stomach gets mad at fast food, too, but my gosh, I have been loving McDonald's lately?? KILL ME lol. & oh my gosh… still have not sent the package… tomorrow, I will do it!!!

                      I don’t know? Maybe I did at some point but I don’t remember? But yeah I totally could πŸ™‚ I would love to figure out how to make the seasoning from scratch at some point πŸ™‚
                      Hahaha really? That’s funny that you mention that because Alex went to McDonald’s too and got some breakfast sandwich which I thought was weird? He NEVER goes there lol.

                      Ahh, McDonald's is addicting. I hate it but love it 😦 I've been doing good at staying away now though, phew!!

  6. Hahah yes I’ve been watching videos on the weddings! Apparently its Β£600, which includes…. tacos, a Wedding bouquet made from taco bell sauce packets, a bow tie, mr and mrs t shirts Haha man I witness one!
    You can buy chipotle sauces here but there isn’t a restaurant here. Odd.

  7. Hello Hunida! I have never had Chipotle before. I really want to try it. I get the same order as you whenever I go to Taco Bell but with the frozen Baja Blast.

    1. Ooo, Toya, you gotta give Chipotle a shot! I love that we get the same order at Taco Bell. πŸ˜€ I honestly didn’t even know there was a frozen Baja Blast that wasn’t alcoholic though. Sounds yummy!

      Hope you have a wonderful weekend, too! Thank you! ❀
