Valentine weekend is just another weekend for me. Nothing special but everyone else sees it as a special weekend because love and shiet. Whatever that is …
But I guess it’s good people see it as special else, I wouldn’t have had such a plan filled weekend.
I received this package a week or so ago from Liliana for Valentine’s day. She is always so sweet. Even when has a valentine she remembers me and my lonesome. I was super excited to get a new pencil bag. I’ve been searching for one for my art supplies. Eeeeeps.
Friday was finally the day I got to see the sun rise again. Going to work before 6 am every day really sucks because I miss is. I went to the doctor for the check up on my sickness and there was good and bad news. I guess we’ll have to play it by ear and see how that goes.
Then June and I went and got crawfish at Jolynn’s Crawfish Restaurant. FINALLY. Happy me. The rest of the day I went and ran errands and then gave my blog a makeover. I felt pretty accomplished.
Saturday morning Mum bursts into my door. Dad had gotten into a car accident, hit and run, and his car has a possibility of being totaled. So we haul ass to where he is and I talked to the cop and tow guy and figure everything out. On the drive home, I call the insurance company and was lucky to finish everything in time to head to my Valentine’s plans.
I met Apurva and she surprised me with a gift. So sweet and so cute!
She then drove us to our 80 minutes stone massage at Cloud 9 Spa. It’s my first stone massage and is now my favourite type of massage which is bad because they are expensive. (Thank goodness for Groupons!) For the first time, I had to tell the guy to ease up because he was killing me. But overall, he got my issues and now I feel much better.
Afterward, we had reservations at Helen Greek Food and Wine but after circling around looking for parking, we gave up and ended up at Myth Kafe. Best stumble upon ever. And so close to Sissy’s that it can be my backup place if I ever end up out here wanting food.
We wanted dessert but didn’t want to travel too far. Valentine’s weekend is one of the worst times to go out. Bleugh. So we went to Tout Suite for desserts. I bought four heart macarons to take to Mallory’s.
Apurva and I actually had the whole day planned out to do things but she had to go home at a certain time to celebrate her brother’s birthday and it worked out to where I had other plans. She dropped me off at my car and I headed home to drop off my leftovers. Said hello to Rizzo because duh. Then headed over to Mallory’s.
Mallory, John, Trey, and I headed over to Alamo Drafthouse to watch Zoolander 2. It’s so stupid. SO FREAKING STUPID. That it was funny. And because of the good company, it was even funnier. Mallory and I ordered a pitcher of sangria and she said it wasn’t a lot. And well, it was a lot. I think I’m a lightweight now. Thankful Trey helped us drink some.
After the movie, I was going to head home, but the boys were going to cook dinner and Mallory asked me to stay. I declined dinner because I was still full from Myth Kafe. While the boys were cooking, Mallory and I talked and worked on the puzzle. John cooked his foods and ate in front of the telly. Mallory ate at the table, and Trey was still cooking his foods. He would come over every few minutes to help us with the puzzle and even ate and did the puzzle with us at the same time. Lots of laughter, weird noises, and singing to music and the puzzle was complete. We headed to the living room and all sat with John to watch telly then I headed home.
My favourite gift arrived in the mail. Necklace with my uncle’s initial and emerald jewel for the month of his birth. The star ring with his initial is too big for my fingers now and it always got caught in my clothing and I told this person before and that person went and got me this and it is now my favourite new necklace/piece of jewelry ever. Thanks, love!
Sunday, we headed to Grandma’s for more Chinese New Year festivities. Got our red envelopes and had a few hours of chit chat with them. Picture of my selfie because I really liked my jewelry that day.
Then we left and headed to Thai Siam for lunch. Their spice level is crazy on point. Real Thai way. And I found a picture of my look-a-like. She works for some blood donor clinic or something. haha
After eating, we went and got boba at Fresh Boba and headed back home. I ran more errands then drove and met up with Michelle.
We met up with Amanda to watch Deadpool. The second time around you catch even more of the jokes you missed. Who wants to watch it a third time with me? haha
Definitely, one of the best weekends I’ve had this year so far and I cannot wait for more.
