September 18, 2019
Hi friends! I tried to get out of bed a little earlier today so I’d have more time in my day to get the things I want done, like write this entry and play the Sims. 😉
The last time we talked, it was the 10th! I thought September just started yesterday? What the heck? August seemed so long compared to this month, didn’t it? Or are all the months just zipping by?
On Wednesday, September 11th, boyfriend made us another one of Diane’s recipes, the Amish Hamburger Stew. It’ll be included in a Recipe Reviews in the far future since I’m still backlogged from April.
I spent my entire day and night playing Sims 4.
On Thursday, September 12th, it was a routine workday for me. We heated up our soup leftovers for dinner, got our espressos from Starbucks, drank a few cocktails at home and then, off I went. I can’t complain, it was a pretty good night!
When boyfriend picked me up, I thought my stomach was eating itself– I was so starved! The night before, I had been reading Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck & Fortune, where she freakin’ described spring rolls and made my mouth water so I had the hugest craving for them. We had no idea that Viet Noodle Bar changed their hours to be open until 6 AM! We hooted and hollered when I saw that on Yelp and headed straight there.
We both got our own order of spring rolls. We ate them all so we’ll probably always get two orders from now on… or are we being too greedy?!
Boyfriend was chit-chatting with our server that remembered us from when we used to drink their iced coffee every night instead of our Starbucks espressos. We told him we can’t drink sweetened coffee anymore so that’s why he hasn’t seen us, or we go earlier and he works the later shift. He showed us photos of his baby girl, who is TWO YEARS OLD, but was still in her momma’s belly last time we spoke to him. It was cool that he remembered us and tolerated our drunkenness, lol.
I got the Beef Stew with Egg Noodles but, I ended up just eating all the meat and slurping down the broth. Their noodles were too thin and a bit hard for my liking. Boyfriend got his usual, the Vermicelli Noodle Salad with Pork and Beef but, I think we were looking through the baby photos when his bowl arrived because I have no photo of it in my gallery…
Friday, September 13th, was a cursed day… because I’m superstitious. 😛 Boyfriend woke up early to go to the dispensary and on his way there, the car right in front of him got SMOKED by a car coming the other way, speeding through a RED light. He said he was so shaken up, he was trembling as he gave his ID to the budtenders. They asked him if he needed to sit down or have a drink of water. I couldn’t believe it, if he had been the first car in line, it would have been him.
After realizing our car is spilling coolant, we couldn’t see from where, we decided to chance it and go out for dinner. Luckily, it’s still driving and not overheating unless we are idle. We have SO many car troubles, I don’t even want to talk about them anymore. My dad is coming at the end of next month to take a look and HOPEFULLY, freakin’ fix it FOR GOOD. Or at the very least, give us no troubles for a whole year. That’s all I’m asking for because I know any longer would be asking too much.
Anyways, we went to Cafe Zupas, one of our favorite spots to go for something light but, filling.
I forgot to ask for ‘no cheese’ on my sandwich so, we were still waiting on it when I took this shot of our tray. 😛 For my Chicken Noodle Soup, they put the noodles in first and then, the broth on top it. I loved that idea! I hate when the noodles are broken and soggy to bits.
Boyfriend got their Chipotle Steak Club Sandwich without the avo and his BBQ Chicken Salad. In the middle, our complimentary bread rolls and choco-covered strawberries. ❤
I got the Cuban Pork Sandwich, their pickles are the best thing in the world and I actually wish they’d hot press ALL their sandwiches. It was so good.
Afterwards, you probably know the drill by now… we went to Starbucks then, smoked, got ready for work, smoked again, drank some dranks, then off I went!
The crowd was about the same as Thursday night and I did just as well.
On Saturday, we went to Chipotle!!! I am really loving the barbacoa mixed with my steak, it’s so meaty and delicious. I have been craving it more often than before now.
That night at work wasn’t the best. I danced with some nice men, who were all friends, but when they left… it seemed like the crowd had died down. It was probably too early but, I was exhausted and dazed so I left, too. I was there from around 11:30 PM-3 AM.
On Sunday, we went to the Aria Seafood Buffet!!
We had been once or twice before and remember it being so yummy, which it was this time, as well, but I’m not sure the amount of food they have is worth the hefty price to get in.
I hate when places slit the crab legs for you, they always ruin it! I can do it better on my own, thank you very much. The meat inside was sweet and flavorful though and their cocktail shrimp were super fat and juicy. They also had King Crab Legs and Dungeness Crab Legs, but they were cold and a tad over-salted. I mostly stuck to my steamed Snow Crab Legs (^). ❤
The rest of the night, we sat at home in a food coma, and gamed.
I’ll recap from Monday next time I write! But, before I go, I NEED to thank my amazing blogging buddy, Jinjer (@Intrepid Arkansawyer)! She sent me TWO boxes of these Tootsie Pop Drops in the mail. I had never heard of them and she raved about them on her blog so, I looked high and low in every candy aisle and never saw a box. Of course, I complained to her… and…
I couldn’t believe she was so kind to actually go to the store and get me some. They have cured my sweet tooth for the past two nights. Yes, boyfriend and I have ate a whole box each night and they are all completely gone now. I am about to have my period, so it was just the perfect timing, too. Again, thank you so so much to my lovely friend, Jinjer!! ❤
She also included the cutest card, personalized with a kitty, melting my heart even more. ❤
I hope YOU have had an amazing week so far! I’ll be back with a Journal Entry soon but, I MAY post my Sept. Glam Bag Plus first. Stay tuned!
