Sushi and other weekend things!

It's been a while since I came here and recapped my weekend. I might be rusty but here goes. 

On both Thursday and Friday I went out for sushi. Thursday I went with my bestie Alicia after work and on Friday night I went with my other bestie Nads and a mutual friend of ours. Man I needed me a good sushi fix after last week and the crap storm that was work. I mean ... sushi fixes everything amiright? And wine. Sushi and wine. I was too busy eating, so I only have a pic from Thursday's sushi-ness.


Friday I actually took a half day off work ... to do work ... go figure. While I was home however, I decided to bake cookies. My best male friend / partner in crime's birthday is Tuesday and last week I told him I would bake him cookies. Not from scratch of course. Because ... no. Instead I baked this:



I am not quite sure why I told him I would to be honest but a promise is a promise. Now who could mess up insta-cookies?? Me ... that's who! He decided he wanted the cookies right away and not on his actual birthday Tuesday so while I was home I baked them. And it was a flop. My oven decided not to cooperate and so half of the cookies burned at the bottom and half came out ok-ish. So I refused to give them to him and this afternoon after work Ill be baking this even more complicated mixture...


And if all else fails I picked him up this bad boy and that should keep him quiet for a while ...


I never claimed to be Betty Croker!

Saturday I spent ALLLLL day doing work. And I mean ALL day. I was on the phone with my boss from 6 am and never completely finished working until 6 pm. Sunday I spent working on my thesis proposal due this week!! #yikes. So yes, the actual weekend was a complete drag, but the sushi and wine from Thursday and Friday kept me in good spirits. Oh and this .. this helped keep me in good spirits also! So good I did an actual photoshoot for the bag! Michael Kors you give me the happies!


Because this post is longer than my average Monday post, I'm slapping in a picture of my Christmas Kangaroo and my empty bottles of wine. I picked this up in Australia and this is the extent of the Christmas decorations in my apartment. 


I'm really rocking the Christmas over here! He's cute isnt he?? I think so! I will say that the same male bestie from up there stated and I quote "that animal is so ugly". Maybe I will burn his brownies on purpose .....

** Tomorrow I surgically extract two wisdom teeth #eeep

Have a great Monday guys!!!

  6. No lie I see that picture of black label and think of Marks dad. He is obsessed. Hahahahaha cracking up girl. I always make break and bakes and claim I made them from scratch. They are so good they key is to tear them unevenly so everyone thinks they are homemade ;-)

  12. I've totally taken off work to do work. When I was teaching it was impossible to get stuff like lesson plans and grading done (since at work I was busy, you know, teaching) so I sometimes I had to take off just to have a full day to catch up :(
    Good luck with your surgery!

  16. Umm... BEST SOUVENIR EVER. I want that kangaroo hahah. Your new MK bag is stunning! What a stupid cookie recipe if it didn't work; totally Betty's fault. Glad Johnny pulled through for ya though for the perfect gift ;)

  17. Cheers to sushi and wine!! That always makes me a happy girl. And cookies can be tricky. I always find I leave them in for a bit too long so they're nice and soft when they come out, but then when they cool you could chip a tooth on them. Speaking of teeth, good luck tomorrow. Oh, and that kangaroo is so cute. It actually kind of looks like my dog, so I resent your friend calling it ugly haha

  20. You will do great at the appointment! Take plenty of resting time! Before I moved in with my husband, I never used the timer on the oven and burned half the food I cooked.

  21. booo to weekend working; i feel you, girl.

    ps - the best thing about wisdom teeth extraction are the pain meds. knowing that i was going to be freebasing pain meds for a week straight was the only thing that pushed me to go through with it LOL
