Sunday Funday

18 Apr

Some of you may have noticed that I didn’t post pictures from dinner last night. Why you ask? Because I had a date last night. And it was a first date so I really didn’t feel like whipping out my camera because they could have made it awkward 🙂 Anyways, I’ve been talking to this dude online for the past two wks and he seemed pretty cool so I decided why not?

We went to Encore which is a nice restaurant I’ve been wanting to check out for some time. I had the Pan Seared Tilapia with jasmine rice and seasoned vegetables. One of the best pieces of fish I’ve had in awhile! I think it went pretty well, good conversation throughout the meal then we had a couple of beers afterwards. I finally got home around 1230A and passed out from lack of sleep during the day and all the fun activities. So yay date 🙂

I slept in until 10A which was sooooo nice since I wake up early during the weekend. I had intentions of making an omelet with onions, cheese and avocado but it somehow turned out like this

Ugly yet delicious. Nothing wrong with that.

I have absolutely no meals for the week so I got working on pierogies since there’s none left from my last batch.

The potatoes with cheese and onions

The dough (which was way stickier than last time I made pierogies, anyone have any thoughts why or what I can add to make it less sticky?)

After boiling them (I made 13 with that little ball o’dough!)

I went to get a much-needed pedicure afterwards. I was super proud of myself since I didn’t get red this time like all the pedicures I’ve had and went with OPI’s “You’re a Pisa Work”

Target was the next spot and I went with the sole intention of just getting aluminum foil but made the mistake of wondering over to the clearance rack in the accessories section and found this beauty 🙂

 And how adorable is the inside?

I came home and got some Lincoln love

Then made a turkey and cheese sandwich on a Thomas Whole Wheat Bagel Thin with a side of honeydew

I’m going to pop in Couples Retreat soon and then get ready to head to Crave Dessert Bar for dinner and drinks with my women’s networking group. Never been there—excited 🙂 And people who say Sunday is a day of relaxation? Liars, I tell you.

    haha…sole intentions of going in for one thing….i always have that intention…never works out. a coworker got me this list pad that says “The odds of going to the store for a loaf of bread and only coming out with a loaf of bread are three billion to one”!!!!

    ooohhh so exciting about your date…a second date in the works? and your meal just sounds devine with that jasmine rice….yum

    ohhhhh so is it a subliminal that you said “I hate a date” instead of HAD a date lol…did it not go well? lol

      It actually went pretty well and he has a job and even bought dinner and drinks (unlike some of my horrible dates from the past yr!) but nope no bouncer, he is so last wk! lol I don’t think bouncer and I will ever be anything again.

    a date!!! whoop whoop! any chance of a second one? ( was wondering the same as Mari if that was a freudian slip with the ‘hate’ a date! lol……

    i love the pink piggies. i think pink is the color of choice for summer. i always try something different but ultimately go back to pink!

    lincoln love! he is as cute as EVA!
