So over the last few months of my non updating I have been up to a few things.
Including an AMAZING trip to Las Vegas to see Lady Gaga. We also saw “Love” the Cirque Du Soleil show and it was one of the best things I have ever seen in my life. Not only did it reignite my love for the beatles, but it was so wonderful that I insisted we see it again. The food we ate was so delicious! It was such a great spur of the moment trip, I still cannot believe it happened. I also fell in love completely with one of the performers in the cirque show. Sad that he will never know it! (If you ever see it, the guy with the flowers /swoooooooooooon!!!!)
We hit up the Bellagio buffet and check out our dessert haul, hah!
Lady Gaga was one of the most amazing concerts I have seen or will ever see, hands down. It was like a crazy amped up theatrical performance, I loved it! She also said how much she loved her fans about 50 times and it made me love her even more.
We also ate at the most A-MAZING burger place I have ever tasted called BLT Burger. Omg. If you are in vegas, go to the mirage and eat there. The burgers are to die for, as are the milkshakes and the sweet potato fries. Nothing was bad! Oh my. We ate there twice!
Such an amazing trip! Though we didn’t win big at all, which was upsetting. 😦
We did see a guy walk right into a fountain and start stealing change….we named him Water Coins. Hah!
Since then there has been a lot of fantasy football (my team BLOWS), lots of sleeping over at Kevin and Alex’s house, and lots and lots and lots and lots of homework. Planning to go to a great grad school I’m super focused on my grades so I’ve got lots of work to do always. Sadly this makes for not a lot of cooking time 😦
I’ve also taken to absolutely hating my face-greased iphone 3G because it is the SLOWEST most awful phone ever. It keeps freezing and not loading anything about 50% of the time.
I’ve taken to using my amazing Love blanket I got in Vegas. 🙂 I couldn’t decide what to get at the store but decided on a throw at the last minute because I’m perpetually freezing.
The same BFF of mine that got me the awesome lady gaga seats also got me a ticket to a great Rays/Angels game. 🙂 He’s pretty freakin fantastic 🙂 And he’s supposed to be here at the end of the month! I’m so excited!! I hope he has fun here in the O, we have plans for Universal and lots of movie watching!
My moms chickens are also starting to lay eggs! Our fridge is filling up! She’s super excited. She actually just got 10 more chicks that lay fancy eggs. By fancy I mean they are dark chocolate brown eggs and sell for some serious $$.
Since a few months ago when I started using our cast iron pan to start seasoning it my Dad took an interest in it. Then when I made my restaurant steak he got REALLY interested in it and wanted to get some more pans. He took a trip with my mom up to North Carolina a weekend or two ago and they had a mission to find used cast iron pans at a flea market. They ended up finding quite a few and brought 3 back home in different sizes. Super exciting! They learned a lot about which ones are the best to get and which are the oldest American made ones and also how to tell if they weren’t made in America.
He’s really excited that one of the pans, which was really rusty, needed to be scrubbed and seasoned so he did that tonight.
Phew! I think I covered mostly everything. If not, c’est la vie. 🙂 It’s great to be back, my darlings.
