Journal Entry #273

Hiya babes, it’s been a whole week since I wrote a Journal Entry again. Let’s chit chat and get all caught up. πŸ˜€

Last Wednesday, the 4th, I spent half of my day taking photos for and writing up my Currentlys post and then the other half of it playing Sims 4. Boyfriend cooked us a saucy steak dinner with mashed potatoes.

On Thursday, the 5th, he cooked us a pork stir-fry. It was delicious!! I went to work that night and didn’t do so bad. I was a little drunk but, not ridiculously. When I came home, I had more of the stir-fry before going to bed. Boyfriend’s mom posted a cute photo of us on FB from when we went to visit her in July:

Friday, the 6th, boyfriend made the most amazing chicken soup for us and then, freaking forgot to put the leftovers in the fridge… I have still not forgiven him and I don’t think I ever will??

I ran out of Patron at home so, we stopped at our favorite casino to get some drinks before I headed into work. We saw one of the bartenders taking a photo for some of the other customers at the bar so, we jokingly asked him if he’d take one of us:

I couldn’t stop laughing! He kept saying he was going to just take a bunch of selfies of himself, LOL. P.S. Boyfriend’s gotten a haircut since then and looks 10x better now. Phew!

On Saturday, we were out of groceries and leftovers (because SOMEONE forgot to refrigerate our soup we could’ve had).

We went to Town Square, to the Whole Foods, to see what they had at their salad bar. Carly (@Caffeinated Carly) is always posting yummy looking stuff from there so I thought I’d check it out for something healthy. I didn’t find anything that looked appetizing to me, so we just went to the California Pizza Kitchen right behind it.

There was a 20 minute wait for a real table but, the bar by the pizza chefs were immediate seating. Of course, we didn’t wait the 20 minutes and went straight for the high tops.

I thought it was awesome watching them make all the food! I didn’t mind sitting there at all.

Our waitress brought our waters with the complimentary bread and oil dip right away. Mmmm. ❀

To share, we got the Potstickers.

I liked the sauce and the soft surrounding dough but, the insides were a bit overly seasoned and the texture was off.

I got the half-sized Thai Chicken Crunch Salad. It was pretty big for a half! I couldn’t even finish it. I almost enjoyed every bite except the ones with too much dressing, they could’ve went a little lighter on that.

Boyfriend’s at the dispensary right now so, I can’t ask him which exact pizza he got. It’s the newest one with spicy pepperoni and spicy everything else. I couldn’t resist not having a bite. The cheese and toppings were SO good!!! Their crust is a little too thin and powdery(?) for my liking though.

When we finished eating, we walked over to Ulta, because why not? I bought a full-sized toner and a new Real Techniques makeup sponge. Then, we drove about .2 miles to Total Wine. I got another big bottle of Patron and the guy who rang me up didn’t even ID me!!! OUCH, right?

Work was alright, I was having a slow night in the beginning until I ran into a fellow Minnesotan who claimed he wasn’t going to get any dances with anyone until he found out I was from the same state as him. Uh-huh, sure. Who goes to the club without looking for a dance? I bet he thought that statement would impress me somehow. He brought some edibles with him and shared one with me. They tasted exactly like those Airheads Extreme Sours, no weed aftertaste at all! He got ’em from that overpriced museum shop, Planet 13. I still have yet to visit but, it’s definitely on my bucket list. I will just check it out and hopefully, not be swindled or tourist trapped by anything!!

Anywhooo, when boyfriend picked me up from work, we were both starving. We went to Bar Code Burger and this time, I chose something different!

Their special Ruffalo Fried Chicken Sandwich on Texas Toast. It was out of this world!!! I traded half of it for boyfriend’s favorite restaurant-named, Bar Code Burger.

That, was also outstanding. I was happy to have my wonderful french fries back, too. πŸ˜‰

On Sunday, we went grocery shopping at Sprouts and I wrote up my special Recipe Reviews. We spent the rest of the night, my favorite way, just gaming. Me, on the computer and boyfriend, on the XBOX. He made us a quick and easy sort of sausage sheet pan for dinner.

Yesterday was more of the same! We had Teriyaki chicken thighs with broccoli, carrots, and rice. ❀

Today, we went to Target to pick up a few things! I got a binder, dividers, and clear protector sheets for all of my Playbills from plays/musicals I went to last season, a couple birthday cards, cat food, brown rice, razor heads, and TP. I was hoping that Julep’s nail lacquers would be there but, unfortunately, they didn’t have them stocked yet. I’m excited they finally are being sold in-stores; I can’t wait to try the brand! Zoya needs to follow suit ASAP.

When we came home, we heated up some chicken thighs since we had so much leftover. We watched an episode of Big Brother while we ate. When it ended, I watched (and laughed my ass off) at Jeffree Star YouTube videos while I removed my old polish and redid my toes. I was too lazy to do color on my fingers, so I just did a clear coat for now.

I hope you’ve all been having a nice week so far! ❀ I’m gonna try my VERY best to get my August Boxycharm post written up and published tomorrow.

    1. Aww thanks so much, sweet Jennie. β™‘ I was crackin’ up at the bar LOL I almost didn’t even include the photo because it’s a blur but I’m glad you like it! I haven’t printed out photos to frame in so long, but you’re so right! We need to get this one up on our wall or dresser. πŸ˜„ & yes, I had to make sure you all knew my man looks way better without a mop on his head heheh!

      Oh my gosh, I’m so glad you like Jeffree Star, too. πŸ˜‚ Everything he says & does is hilarious to me! I would love to try some of his makeup line & anything from his Morphe collab, too, even though I had never been interested in the brand before!

      Hope you have an amazing rest of your week, too! Thank you! β™‘β™‘β™‘

      1. Oh really no way? I am so glad you posted it, even though it’s a little blurry it’s still the most perfect photo- because it just captures how happy you guys are and how much fun you’re having together. Yes definitely, it’s the perfect picture! Hahahaha oh my gosh you’re so funny! Bless him!!

        Yes I do like Jeffree Star! I know – and did you see his documentary with Shane Dawson??? That was so insightful but seriously I think he’s so inspirational having achieved SO much!!! Coming from nothing, you know? He’s a genuine success story and good for him! YES me too! His makeup looks so good especially the lip products. I’ve never used Morphe products before but I have heard good things, I don’t think I’ve seen his collab with them? I’ll have to check it out!

        Thank you Hunida ❀

        1. Lol thank you, Jennie! I’m so happy I shared it then. πŸ™‚ I did not see his documentary with Shane Dawson, for some reason, I don’t like the way Shane talks & have never watched him for over a minute before… I have heard it was really good though. Maybe I’ll have to watch it for Jeffree! I’d like to hear more of his story, for sure. He said his liquid lips are the best on the market right now! & ooo, you have to check out his Morphe collab. It’s all pink everything!!

          1. Oh no way! I have only seen his doc with Jeffree Star and those sort of videos, I don’t watch him generally. It was very insightful. Yes his story is incredible, it’s inspiring how much he has achieved and overcome. I’d definitely recommend watching! Oh wow no way! And pink everything? I need to have a look ASAP. Thanks Hunida!

            1. I just watched the video where Jeffree & Shane review Kylie’s skincare though, they were cracking me the heck up!! I’ll for sure check out the Secret Life series someday. Thank you for your recommendation! & yesss, all pink everything!


  3. As usual , love these posts. Gotta go to California Pizza Kitchen as I haven’t been there in years. Town Square is another place that tourists should go to when they visit Vegas. So easy to get to by public transportation and my friend loves going to the Whole Foods store there whenever we come to Vegas.So huge. What’s your favorite casino, Palace Station ? Just curious . You and the boyfriend look so happy and living your best lives , but then again you’re in Vegas so who wouldn’t

    1. California Pizza Kitchen is pretty good! We had only been once before this time. I agree that tourists should visit Town Square, there are so many fun stores & restaurants. The Whole Foods is sooo big, it has everything you could imagine lol. I get why your friend loves going there! Our fave casino may give away where I work so I don’t wanna say… hehe. 🀐 We are trying our very best to live our best lives!! β™‘


  4. I used to live in Ottawa and since it’s right next to Quebec hardly anyone IDs there because the drinking age is 19… I move back to BC to the island in the middle of nowhere that I’m from and I need 2 pieces of ID and a background check just to drink a beer lmao. Btw you and your bf are adorable, I do everything with my guy too πŸ™‚

    1. Oh wow! That’s wild that you need pieces of ID AND a background check before you can drink in BC. That’s way too much lol. Thank you!! I wish we lived closer so we could do double dates or something. πŸ˜€


      1. I was mostly kidding you don’t actually need a BG check!! lol! I mostly mean my small town just acts all intense about IDs even though in QC you can literally frolic around at 17 and sneak into bars because their legal age is so young you get away with more. It’s all just so silly and I good thing I don’t really drink I just smoke lol! But I so wish we could be closer omg!!

        1. Lol ohhh!! Gosh, sorry I didn’t catch that. πŸ˜› I’m glad they don’t do background checks. We actually have a card called Scope that you can carry around with you that says your background is clean here in Vegas SO I thought you needed something like that on you at all times hahaha.

  5. I’ve just started watching Jeffree Star on YouTube…I know I’m late to the game, but anyways…I love his content he is so hilarious. Have you seen the new video where he follows a makeup tutorial link from 1969 his 100 year old grandma sent him. It’s too funny! πŸ™‚ β™₯

    1. I just started watching him, too, so hey! We are both late to the party! At least we have tons of his old videos to catch up on since we’ve never seen them before though. πŸ™‚ He truly is so hilarious & entertaining! & Yess!! That’s the exact video I was watching!

      1. Yes, that’s right! A lot of people say my name ‘Hoon-ee-dah’ & it does get so annoying to constantly correct them. I was pronouncing yours wrong in my head, I have to be honest, but I’m so glad we cleared that up now. πŸ˜€

  6. Your photo of you and your bf is so cute!!!! Haha, I need to get a new binder at Target and some new sheets for my Playbills too. I try to keep one book per year but so far 2018 and 2019 are sharing and I’m running out of pages!

    1. Thank you!! You are the one who gave me the idea to put them in a binder. ❀ I honestly wanted to fit them ALL into one but our playbills here are SO big, the one year is almost breaking the thing. I'll show ya in my next Currentlys post. πŸ˜‰

  7. You guys need more photos together. Funny enough, Alex and I dont have many photos together either haha I’m going to force him from now on for good haha
    And I havent been to California Pizza Kitchen in a long time so I dont remember if their pizza is any good…dont think I’ll be going there though again because ever since I found Pielogy (thanks to Mac) I’ve loved that place over other pizza places lol
    I’m still playing catch up here, I’m not too far off now. Didnt get to film yesterday but I’m hoping tomorrow I can so I’ll be preparing for that today Haha

    1. You are so right, we don’t have nearly enough photos together! We gotta remember to take more but most of the time, I don’t feel photo-ready LOL. I would love to see more photos of you & Alex, too! ❀

      CPK is pretty good for a chain restaurant. I wouldn't go there for pizza though! I def want to try Pieology next time I'm feeling naughty. πŸ˜‰

      I'm still playing catch up, too! Looking forward to seeing your next post. ❀ Hope you're enjoying your weekend!!


  8. Oh my goodness, those photos of you two are so cute! You look like you’re having such a great time. ❀ I still have to try Whole Food's salad bar. I'm actually not sure if there's one near us now though. Va Beach is big enough that even if we have one, it could be like half an hour away, which is such a huge change from the small town we knew lol.

    1. Aww thanks so much, Courtney! πŸ™‚ There are some great things to eat at the Whole Foods Salad Bar but, it doesn’t always look fresh & a lot of it is picked over by too many people before you. πŸ˜› The closest one to us is nearly 30 min away, too!
