Journal Entry #276

Hiya babes! Let’s just jump into this right away and pick up where we left off. πŸ™‚ On Thursday, Sept. 26th, we were out of groceries at home but, weren’t in the mood to go out and do a full out shop so, we went to Albertsons and picked up some raw chicken breasts, which were on sale– BOGO FREE, like always (?), and two salad kits.

I got the Taylors Farm Asian one, as usual, because it’s nearly the only dairy-free option besides Sunflower Crunch which gets sickening to me. Boyfriend pan-fried some seasoned chicken to mix in. Mmm, mmm! ❀

I thought I was going to be able to go to work but, my period was still lingering. I blame it on the Excedrin I had to take for my migraine.

Benji loves the bean bag pillow boyfriend’s mom gave us. ❀

Since I stayed home, we got to watch the Big Brother finale! This was the first season I watched from beginning to end in a LONG while. I thought the winner was so absolutely deserving but, the jury questions and accusations from the other house guests completely ruined the winning moment.

Feeling a little sad that I’m done with my Reality TV shows until next summer, I looked through what Netflix had to offer in the genre. We watched an episode and a half of the Emoji game show but, then, boyfriend kept making fun of the host so, I was like “alright, you hate him that much? We have to watch something else” LOL. Luckily, we moved on because we had just enough time in the night to watch every single episode of The Rap Game. These 5 internet famous kids were chosen by Jermaine Dupri to compete in a few challenges and the winner was signed to his record label. It was so cute, fast-paced, and drama-filled. Just my type of TV. πŸ˜‰

On Friday, it was my time to go back to work. Of course, we had chicken breasts for dinner.

Boyfriend cooked and seasoned them perfectly, made the Vegan Butter Noodles from my latest Recipe Reviews, and also some frozen mixed veg with vegan butter, salt, and pepper for our sides.

I got into work around midnight thirty and my very best regular was already there waiting for me. He had FOUR more THC cartridges to gift me and I just couldn’t believe how meant to be it was that he was there. I had just started smoking the last one from the previous bunch he gave me. We spent the entire night together, until a little past 6:30 AM. I felt bad because I cut him off at the end, saying “I’m sooo tired” LOL, I was seriously about to pass out though. I had to go home!!

When boyfriend picked me up, my head felt so dazed. I knew I needed to get a bite to eat or I’d be dealing with a hellish hangover the next day. I didn’t want to have McDonald’s so we went to Eggscellent. Luckily, they open at 7 AM. πŸ™‚

Boyfriend got their breakfast burrito. He was complaining about how big the potatoes were the whole time and it was nothing special in taste.

I got a skillet with pulled beef, sweet potatoes, red peppers, onions, and 2 poached eggs topped with a creamy, delicious hollandaise sauce. I told them ‘no cheese‘ but, I couldn’t pass on that sauce… ❀ Sadly, the pulled beef was quite plain! I ate all of the eggs, and that’s about it.

The cats needed food so we went to grab their favorite from Albertsons. We decided to pick up lunch meat and sandwich toppings, too. We knew we’d be waking up late the next day (aka yesterday).

It was nearly 6 PM when I rolled out of bed and got ready for the day. We hadn’t thought about sides for our sandwiches so, we still ended up having to make a trip back to Albertsons before we could eat. Lol, what a fail, right?

I got chicken noodle soup from the deli and boyfriend got a Caesar salad. We also got some salt and vinegar pop chips by Kroger. They were super weird… I’ll stick to the real Pop Chips from now on.

We already had hamburger buns so, we just used those for the bread. Boyfriend toasted it, spread mayo on it, and stuffed it fat with roast beef, turkey, onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. It was so good!

I got into work around 12 AM and left at 4 AM. I was beyond exhausted and couldn’t stop yawning! I finally got The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo checked out to me after waiting half a year so, I started reading it until I couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore (about 5%).

Twinkle Star always taking up her side of the bed…

Today, boyfriend and I woke up around the same time, a bit past 3 PM. I read a few blogs on my Reader before taking a shower. When I got out, we smoked a blunt and thought about a place to eat. Boyfriend suggested Red Pot and it was crazy because I already had it on my mind!

We noticed they didn’t have any crab legs out so, we thought maybe they had just run out for the day. We didn’t ask about it until the end and they informed us that the AYCE price was reduced so, the crab legs came as an ‘add-on‘ now. We were a bit bummed because we so would’ve paid to have them. 😦 But, oh well. We were satisfied and filled to the brim with all of their other goodies. I ate a lot of shrimp and tripe. πŸ˜‰

For our broths, we chose Spicy Miso and Spicy Green Curry. Next time, we’ll pick two different ones. These were probably our least favorites, so far. We also had an Iced Lychee Green Tea to share. It was awesome; super refreshing and not too sweet at all!

On our way home, we stopped at Starbucks for dessert. Courtney shared the Pink Drink on her blog and me, being a lover of all things pink, knew I needed to try it. I thought it was one of those ‘secret‘ drinks but, it’s actually on the menu! It tastes like that Strawberry Creme Savers candy– you know which I’m talking about? It was extreeeemely sweet but, still, very addicting. I’m glad boyfriend and I are sharing it, though, I def could not finish one on my own. Not even this ‘tall‘-size. We have it in our fridge now and are both taking sips in intervals.

The baristas see us nearly everyday there so, the one who rang us up actually gave it to us for free because she heard me say to boyfriend, ‘let’s just try it on the side!‘ What a sweetie! ❀ We also ordered two Venti Vanilla Bean Creme frapps with 3 shots of espresso each. Mine with almond milk, his with cow’s.

I’ve been typing this pretty much since we got home so we’re all caught up now. πŸ™‚ I have my Sept. Glam Bag, a book review, a TV shows review, and a Currentlys all coming up this week so stay tuned, if you’re interested!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and the best upcoming week. ❀

  1. Eggscellent looks like a yummy place! I’m not a huge fan of breakfast food – maybe I’m just not in the mood to eat in the mornings, oops, but that food really looks good! I’ve never tried the Pink Drink, but my sister loves it! That’s so sweet of the barista. It definitely pays to be regulars! Have a lovely week, too, Hunida!

    1. I love breakfast food but, I never eat right when I wake up, either. It’s best for late drunken nights for me LOL. The Pink Drink tastes like candy, one or two sips at a time is good but, a whole cup is maybe too much. πŸ˜› You should try a little next time your sister gets it, hehe. & you’re right, it does pay to be a regular. Boyfriend won’t go to any other Starbucks besides “ours” now!

      ❀ Thank you, Stephanie!

    1. The Pink Drink was seriously like drinking candy, I was amazed lol. My kitties say ‘thank you’ πŸ™‚ I actually didn’t name Twinkle Star. I adopted her & felt it wasn’t right to change it, plus it fits her perfectly. ❀ How sweet that your kitty was named Twinkles, too!! I'm so happy you enjoy reading my journals. All the love to you!!! ❀

  3. I haven’t eaten lunch yet and all of the photos on here are making me drool πŸ˜‚And I hear the pink drink is really good!! I have never tried it before and am not sure if I would like it – but my friends do. I don’t really like candy other than chocolate and unfortunately sugar drinks make me feel sick :/

    Looking forward to all of the posts you have planned! ❀

    1. Hehe, oops!! I’m sorry I made you drool. πŸ˜‰ The Pink Drink seriously tastes like candy… it would, for sure, make you sick. It’s not even good enough to risk it.

  4. Oh my gosh- Big Brother!! This was my favorite season ever (although, I’ve only watched two, lol).!! I could talk about it alll day long!!! I’m watching old seasons now- the original season (from 2000) is nutzo with so much that’s non-PC. It’s brutallll to get through. All the food in this post looks amazing as usual- but bummer Eggscellent sounds like it fell a bit flat. I used to LOVEEE strawberry crΓ¨me savers, so I must try the Pink Drink. Thanks for this post – can’t tell ya how much I miss your blog and popping in just made my day!! xo

    1. I rarely ever watch Big Brother to very end but this one I kept up with every episode so it has have to been one of my faves, too!! What did you think of the winner?! Didn’t you feel so bad for him because he was kind of blindsided with all those accusations & didn’t really get to be happy about his confetti!!

      Wait wait, I’m sorry– what’s ‘non-PC’ mean?! πŸ˜›

      We were a little sad about Eggscellent so we prob won’t return anymore, to be honest. The Pink Drink really tastes exactly like those creme savers, I knew I could count on you to know what I’m talking about. ❀

      Thank you for taking the time to pop in, babe, it means a lot! Reading your comment made MY day! ❀

      1. YES YES!!! Ok, I listened to Michie on a podcast and many of his comments (from the accusations) were taken so out of context- they didn’t sound great on the surface but it meant something totally different than it was perceived… I definitely think he earned it… CBS totally blindsided him!

        Haha so non- pcβ€”non β€œpolitically correct”. The things they did in the first season they would NEVER be able to do today. It’s wild !

        Awww I’m so glad πŸ€—β€οΈ

        1. Michie SO earned it & I do think CBS blindsided him. I think Julie felt like they should’ve accepted his apology, too LOL, she was so funny at the live show rushing everyone!

          Oh wow, thanks for teaching me something new! πŸ˜‰ & yeah, when you watch like older shows, they always make jokes that people would get so upset about these days. Crazy, huh?!

  5. Ohhhhh look at those sweet kitty cats!!!!!

    So glad you got to see the Big Brother finale live as it was happening, i.e. not via the internet 3 weeks later.

    Too funny that you had to switch off that other show because of BF’s hatred of the host. LOL

    WTF, Eggscellant??? Get a smaller dice on those potatoes next time! Too bad only the egg part of your dish was worth eating. It all looks so yummy!

    Oh no you forgot sides???? Argh…

    I remember going into Starbucks to order those pastel drinks for my BFF when I would stop on my way home from work every day. She was working her way through all of them, BUT she customizes everything so I had to read off a sticky note when I placed the order.

    1. Hehe β™‘ I love my kitties! & I was happy to have watched the BB finale ASAP. It was so good! Lol, the show was Emogenius & I kind of like it but, boyfriend talks so much crap about it everytime. πŸ˜‚

      Lol yeah, seriously, Eggscellent. Their potatoes were huge! But, it did all photograph really well!

      Oh! I didn’t know these pastel Starbucks drinks had been around for awhile. I thought they were brand new!

    1. I used to eat bags of those candies when I was little, I’m so happy you knew exactly what I was talking about! The drink is fun to taste & have a few sips of. πŸ™‚ I don’t know if I’d ever order it again though. Let me know what you think if you try it!

  6. Omg your cat is so cute lying on the pillow.
    Lots of yummy food here on this post. Too bad that Eggscellent wasnt as good because the food sure looks good.
    I’m so behind on the reader. Like really behind I’ll have to spend a whole day or two catching up
    Red Pot looks really good too!!
    I havent gotten SB in a long time and I dont think I will for a while lol.

    1. Oh my gosh, he loves that pillow. He uses it like a human, it’s so cute, I can hardly stand it lol. ❀

      I was a bit disappointed with Eggscellent! They just opened up & weren't that busy so, honestly, don't think they'll be around much longer.

      I am SO close to catching up on the Reader, like 5 days out lol. There was a time I was 2-3 weeks behind so I feel like it's possible!! Don't worry about it. ❀

      I LOVE Red Pot. I would love to bring you there, too, but I really don't think there would be anything for Ciel to eat. 😦

      I am addicted to SB. I can't even help it. My body just gets up & goes LOL.

      1. I think it’s super adorable! πŸ˜€
        OMG! That sucks! We’ve experienced the same with a restaurant around here too. They had the sign “COMING SOON” and we were all excited for it and the grand opening there was NOBODY in there except for the workers. And the food was such a let down. I haven’t seen it opened in like a month now so they definitely didn’t last. Shame.
        I think I’m like a week out by now, I haven’t gotten the chance to read since I’m so busy trying to film videos for when my mom comes. That way I can have content even when she’s here so I’ll be working super hard in the next two weeks before she arrives. And yeah I’ve been that far out too, actually like a month LOL
        We will try anyway! If they have plain noodles or something he will take that haha
        Understandable, must be all the caffeine you guys drink! LOL

        1. Ahhh such a shame when new restaurants fail, especially after being so excited for them. :/ I hope you have the best time with your mom! The blogs will always be there & you can catch up whenever you want! ❀

          Oo, there are plain noodles at Red Pot! That'd be such a fun spot to go together. πŸ™‚ LOL you're right. If I don't have caffeine, I get headaches!!

Thanks a lot love! ❀ πŸ™‚ I briefly saw comment from Jennie on my IG (I haven't checked) but I commented on her photo that I would love to see her but can't travel all the way to NY (she's over there right now).

              1. Right? I’ve already mentioned it to Alex and he is thinking about it, just means we have to save up loads of money. We need to go to Mexico ASAP as well before CL’s passport expires. πŸ™‚ So maybe we will have two trips next year, fingers crossed. Actually make it three for CL and I, I plan on going to Utah in May or so for my sister’s HS graduation.

                  1. The only reason I renewed CL’s passport to begin with was because we were supposed to go to mexico when I renewed it and I dont remember if that was two or three years ago?? lol. I dont want to renew it because I dont think I will need it anymore? I’ll have to ask to make sure.
                    But just this week Culiacan, Sinaloa in mexico was in a state of war more or less. That’s where fucking Alex is from! And I was like “dude I dont want to fucking go anymore!” Lol but one of the biggest drug cartels live there you know? Son of El Chapo who is now in charge, was recently arrested and thats when all hell broke loose. The cartel literally drove into the city with machine guns and what not trying to get him back! πŸ˜₯ alex’s brother was showing us videos from the day it happened. Well, was happening when he showed us. It sits crazy. Apparently the military or whoever took him had to let him go because when the cartel showed up, they knew they were unmatched. And now they’re supposedly gearing up to take him back 😱😱 so it’s about to get worse!! Uhm how did I get here to this story?? πŸ˜…
                    But yeah I get you. Even the reputable pet sitters can be…..not good lol.
