Hello lovelies! ❤ How have you been?!

Last time I wrote was, Tuesday, the 8th. After I published my post, boyfriend made us a vegan “chicken” patty pita sandwich.

He spread Cedar’s Jalapeno Hommus inside and stuffed it with shredded carrots, bell peppers, and lettuce. It was delicious!

On Wednesday, boyfriend made us a strange raspberry chicken salad for dinner. I spent most of my day watching TV and painting my nails.

Thursday, we had an All-American dinner with pork chops, Annie’s Vegan Cheddar Mac, and steamed broccoli. Mmm, mmm. ❤

Something in my bones told me not to go to work, so I stayed home, even after doing my makeup and hair. I thought it was laziness that I felt (LOL) but, when I went to work on Friday, I heard some type of huge competition that made the club a whole mess had been going on. Loads of my co-workers told me I was “lucky to have missed out.” Phew!

But anyhoo, since I was already all dolled up and had the roaring munchies, I wanted to go out to eat at Viet Noodle Bar.

We decided to share everything, starting with our favorite, fresh shrimp spring rolls. ❤

Then, we had a plate of egg rolls and a bowl of Bún Bò Huế.

*My mouth is watering just posting these photos, everything was SO good!!!

We also got their chicken wings; they are coated in two different sauces. One is meant to be more spicy but, surprisingly, I prefer the (darker colored) mild flavor better. Boyfriend is the opposite so it works out perfectly. 🙂

We came home and tried to watch a film on Netflix together, but I dozed off before 30 minutes passed by, lol. I’m the worst with movies!

On Friday, we had leftover chicken from Wednesday’s salad so, boyfriend reheated it, sliced it up and made us pita sandwiches again. 😀

This time he stuffed them with red cabbage, onions, and shredded carrots. Cedar’s Jalapeno Hommus was also spread inside, he steamed broccoli and dumped some Boulder Canyon’s Classic Sea Salt chips on the plate, too. It was more filling than I thought it would be and man, was it tasty!

On Saturday, we had an amazing salmon dinner with asparagus and “buttered” garlic pasta. We made a run to the dispensary and Total Wine for a bottle of Patròn. On our way there, boyfriend missed the turn into the parking lot so, we had to make a drive around the entire Las Vegas Strip before we could get back to the store, lol. That made our trip take a lot longer than we had planned!

Still, I got to work around 11 PM. It was alright but, not the best– especially for a Saturday. I was lucky to make what I did. 😛

Yesterday, pretty much all I did was eat dinner and watch the rest of 13 Reasons Why Season 03. My mind is still processing everything at the moment; I’m a bit boggled and don’t know how to feel or what to think.

Today, we woke up around 1 PM, both showered, smoked a blunt together, then, went out to eat at SkinnyFATS.

I cannot resist taking pictures of this place every time we go. It’s so darn artistic, quirky, and fun!

We grabbed the two ketchups we like best (Unipeppercorn and Jãlatcha) and water cups with super cute paper straws! Honestly, I prefer drinking water without a straw and the paper kind of made it taste weird, but, I had to show you guys the little smileys all over, hehe!

Boyfriend had the Cherry Popper (😏) Burger. It looked marvelous but, just seeing it made my stomach upset so, for once, I had self-control and didn’t take a bite. Of course, I stole quite a bit of those yummy sweet potato fries, though!

I had the, super PACKED, Thai Cobb Salad. I added the shaved beef, but, without it, the salad originally came with the sunny side up egg, mango bits, red pepper bits, and bacon, all dressed in a light peanut dressing.

When I asked the cashier if it had dairy, he just stood there like an idiot and was like, “umm… I would say it does.” Now, most of the time, peanut dressings do NOT have dairy so, I HIGHLY doubted his answer and was quite annoyed that he didn’t even offer to go ask the chef. I glared at him and said, “could you please go ask?” and he finally turned around, went back, just 2 steps away!!, and found out, I was right– it was dairy-free! Already, there aren’t a lot of options for me to choose from, so he almost took the one I wanted away. I was not happy but, I quickly got over it after tasting how scrum-diddly-umptious this was!!! ❤

The meat wasn’t chewy or fatty. It had a nice, salty seasoning incorporated all the way through– so dang flavorful! I loved the mangoes and red peppers so much and the dressing wasn’t the usual thick, peanut sauce. It was almost as light as a vinaigrette. I only wish there had been a little more of it on my lettuce!

There was this really stuck up couple next to us who got up and changed tables because I burped, LOL. He shot daggers in my head with his eyes and even scrunched up his nose. When I told boyfriend, we both started giggling (yeah, sorry, we can be immature at times) so, they got up, scoffed, and REALLY moved tables. Oh my gosh, I can’t believe people are that disgusted by BURPS! I even turned my face away from their table and covered my mouth with a napkin, which, I admit, I don’t always do. It was just a really loud one. 😂 Should I have said ‘sorry’ or ‘excuse me’ or something? Am I in the wrong here?! I thought all humans have gas. Like, at least it wasn’t a fart… there’s actually a reason to run away from those.

But, anyways, moving on!!

When we finished eating, we went to Starbucks and got our quad shots of espresso. We also stopped at the smoke shop for blunt wraps and boyfriend’s ciggies.

I’m gonna go do my hair and makeup and get my booty to work tonight. 😛 Since, it’s getting slower again, going into winter… I’m gonna try my best to work 4 days a week instead of 3. My work schedule’s going to change from Thurs-Sat to Mon, Tues, Fri and Sat, starting from this week on. Wish me luck!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!! ❤

    1. I am always so impressed with veggie “chicken”, the pita was awesome! I love that you think being lazy is a super power lol, I always think it’s my biggest downfall. I am happy I missed out though & I really couldn’t believe those people actually switched spots because of me. 😂

      Thanks so much, Jennie 💗💗💗 hope you have a fab week, too!

    1. LOL it’ll be awhile until I share that strange salad in a Recipe Reviews but, it was just the dressing that was a problem.

      I am glad you got a kick out of my roaring munchies! ;D

      Thank you, Jinjer!! ❤

    1. SkinnyFats really is so cool, I want to take pictures of the whole place! I’m so happy I could inspire you to expand your food choices, you’ll find so many new things to enjoy. 😀 & I just couldn’t believe the way he looked at me, like, JEEZ! I didn’t burp in his face or anything!

  2. Love the Vietnamese food. Is that place in Chinatown? As for the burping , I usually say excuse me when I do it, but that’s just me, I’m old fashioned like that. However, that couple that moved tables, they were just being extra with their snobbery . It’s not that serious folks. You and your boyfriend weren’t having sex at the table, you just belched for God’s sake . Some folks, smh.

    1. Yes this place is in Chinatown! Their appetizers are the best. ❤ & I was honestly turning around to see if I should say 'excuse me' for anyone within earshot but he was already scrunching his nose & staring daggers into my head so I didn't really want to say it to him anymore lol. Petty… I know. 😛 But you're right, it's not that serious! Some people are so snobby these days.

  3. OMG we LOVE Vietnamese food too! We just ate at our local Vietnamese restaurant last Thursday. We always spit their sampler which had two of some of the appetizers on it. I always order spicy brown sauce on the rice and seafood dish I get. I can’t find anything that tastes like the brown sauce in the stores or a recipe. I want it so bad! It looks like a fabulous meal you both shared! Good luck with the extra day of work!

    1. Oh my gosh, we had Vietnamese food on the same exact night. 😀 Their appetizers are my favorite. ❤ I'm not sure I've ever tried the spicy brown sauce though, I'll have to look for it on the menu next time!

      Thank you so much, Diane!

    1. I know! Sometimes, your gut is really telling you something! & I couldn’t help but laugh when they moved away, lol. You’re right, it is kind of satisfying to annoy stuck up people. 🙂

  4. It’s definitely one of my pet peeves when you ask/tell an employee somewhere about something that they *should* check on, and they are just like, “I don’t know.” It’s just laziness! It’s a good think you asked him to check anyway, lol, I dislike any kind of confrontation, so I never ask but I really should! At least that salad was dairy-free, it sounds delicious!!

    1. It wasn’t even a far walk for him to get to the chef & he really wasn’t going to until I asked. I couldn’t believe his laziness! I’m getting better & better at confrontation because it always feels better when you get what you actually want, you know?

    1. The pita sandwiches were really yummy. 🙂 & thank you about my nails. I broke one & have to cut them down again now. 😦 I’m so sad about it!!

      Viet Noodle Bar has SO many tasty dishes, it def deserves a spot on your list. I just DO NOT recommend their pho. 😛

      I didn’t know you were doing Sober October again this year but, hey you totally deserved to drink on your birthday which I’m SO SO SO SO SO sorry I missed. I can’t believe I didn’t e-mail or send you a comment on your exact birthday. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO YOU, BEAUTIFUL!!! I hope you had an amazing day & you got be like Murray the cat!!! ;D

      I don’t get why he was trying to guess when he should’ve went back to ask the chef!! Lol. & I can’t believe how upset they were over a burp… it wasn’t even towards them!!

      Thank you, Rossy! ❤ Work actually hasn't been that bad, thankfully & now I'm on my period so I won't be going back til Fri!

      1. Omg I hate it when that happens!! I can never have long nails because they always break haha. I think the longest I’ve gone with long nails was….a week, two weeks max maybe but most likely not haha
        No problem I’ll skip the pho! Haha
        No worries doll!! You had wished me a happy birthday prior to that when you sent me that package, I’m super grateful. Thank you!! 🧡🧡

        1. Yeah, same! Mine can get about the length in this picture & that’ll last about 2-3 weeks because I’m so rough lol. I need to be more careful next time they grow out. I can tell they’re getting stronger after the years of acrylics though so I’m really happy!!

          I still wanted to wish you a happy birthday on the exact date, too!! 😦

          1. ah yeah I only used some fake nails from the store and used the glue and that totally ruined my nails this year 😦 I will have to be more careful with those too and probably steer clear of the glue even though it works better than press on nails
            awh no worries doll!! ❤ i still love yaaa!!

            1. Yeah. I never want my nails to get so thin & messed up like they were before I started growing them out but, I’m getting so sick of taking care of my own nails. I’m tempted to start going to the salon again!

              I still feel bad but, yay love ya, too!!! 💗

              1. Go for it! Treat yourself!

                By the way, just bought our flight tickets yesterday. Turns out we will be there Thursday Nov. 21st until Sunday the 24th. I just have to make a few more calls and figure out how to get to our hotel because it’s not far but I also dont know if we are able to use the shuttle since check in isnt until 3 and check out is at 11am lol ugh haha we are renting a car but I havent made that call yet I’m so stressed I only booked the flight and hotel which is more important.
                Oh I’m also compiling a huge list of things to do, we will not do or see everything but I’m so excited to go lol.

                Also, I sent you an email earlier this week, I think I might have sent that your blog email without realizing it lol. I just clicked on your email haha
