it’s been so long

…since I’ve had SUSHI! So when Jeff’s parents said they wanted to take me out for my birthday tonight, I happily requested Japanese. =)

But backing up to earlier today, my afternoon and evening entirely consisted of nails and baseball.

I’d been wanting to do my nails for a while now and debated getting a manicure – but I think manicures are much more fun when done with a friend. So I thought it’d be much better to get a fun new nail polish color that would be cheaper and would last longer too.


I ended up LOVING this color! It’s sort of a nude/beige/grey color. I find that my hands look better with lighter colored polish than darker colors.



I also picked up some silicone ice cube trays! Now that I’m trying to make my iced coffee drinks from home, I decided to pick these up. Anyone ever tried them?


The funny thing was when I showed these to Jeff (along with my nail polish), he immediately thought they were nail polish bottle holders – not ice cube trays! And you know what? He’s so right!!

OK, so they aren’t specifically made for nail polish, but they fit PERFECTLY!


We also watched an intense game of the Giants vs. Cardinals. SO torturous, because the Giants had been winning the WHOLE game, up until the last inning when the Cardinals scored and got ahead of the Giants. Thankfully, the Giants tied it back up at the bottom of the last inning. Giants FINALLY won it in the 12th inning, which made it the longest opening home game in Giants history! =)

Aaaand, nobody probably cares. Unless you live in San Francisco. Haha =)


Anyway, tonight’s dinner was a little funny too.

Months and months ago, Jeff and I went to a sushi place. We didn’t really enjoy it though so we vowed that we wouldn’t go back. We kind of forgot the name of the place though so when we were looking at yelp tonight to see which sushi place we should go to with his parents, we CHOSE THAT PLACE AGAIN! And we didn’t know it, until we actually got there.


Thankfully though, it was better tonight than that other night months and months ago. What we learned from last time was to stay away from their rolls and stick with their sashimi/nigiri – which is precisely what we did tonight!

I got my sushi fix and now I’m good to go for another month or so.

Tomorrow, we’re off to the city all day! Should be fun, but gotta get a good night’s rest tonight. Good night. <3
