Dinner and a Movie Night!

So I wake up this morning to a text from the bestie saying "dinner date tonight?" of course! I have not seen her in about a week and we have a TON of catching up to do over dinner. I got even more excited when I realized that it was Wednesday and my all time favorite SUSHI restaurant has HALF-OFF of all their sushi rolls :) talk about the ultimate BEST night for a dinner date. My friend doesnt really like sushi too much (im trying to get her into it), so I asked her if it was ok to eat there but that we didnt have to, but she said it was fine! YAY! Then we decided that we might as well make a night of it and go to a movie afterward as well. I have been in the mood for a scary movie, so we decided that we are gonna go see The Unborn.

Purrrrrtty scarrrry! haha.

You guys will be so happy to see a break in the flat out wraps streak. I was in the mood for a just plain-o sammie today. I have been craving mushrooms for the past couple o' days so I picked some up yesterday and just HAD to use them in my sandwich for lunch today. Here she is with some Kashi crackers on the side:

and maybe a few more ;)

I just wanna say thanks again for everyone who was thinking about me and gave me such awesome support for my interview yesterday. Your kind words and thoughts meant soooo much more than I could ever say. It really was a big accomplishment for me to even go. I had to wake up at 330 in the morning to drive the 3 and half hours to get there for the interview. There were so many times where I thought "im just not going to go, there are too many things working against me, it wont be worth it." But, I bit the bullet and I went for it! I knew I wanted to and I WAS NOT going to let negative thoughts get in my way. In a way it kind of reminded me of overcoming the negative feelings and thoughts associated with ED. There was that little voice in the back of my head that told me I couldnt do it, just like with ED telling me I needed to control my body by restricting and exercising, that I was weak if I didnt. But I turned around and looked that little voice right SMACK in the face and I said "I am strong and I can do this", I shook it off and I DID IT! and I was so proud of myself for accomplishing that, whether I get the job or not :)

Ok, time to get ready for "date night" GONNA take pictures of the food, im not going to be embarrassed! haha...because you just have to see how AMAZING this place is!

oh yeah, and you bet your Valentines Day Lovin' booty i WILL be particpating in Lee's "Secret Cupid" extravaganza and you probably should too :)

I might try something new tonight...What is your favorite sushi roll?

Have a great night!

Mica said...

Oooh, you have earned yourself a fun night after your interview and driving day! I hope it's a good one!

Hmm...I'm kind of partial to spicy tuna, but the good kind! And also eel.

Nicole said...

Yay for doing what YOU want to do! Negativity be damned! And congrats of course on your smashingly success interview day. Both for the interview itself, and going for what you wanted!

I haven't had sushi in almost a year now but I used to LOVE spicy tuna rolls. And also tempura rolls or anything with mango or mango sauce. Amazing.

Half price sushi!!!! Yum! The newest roll I tried was a spicy Boston roll, and it was pretty delish. Otherwise i love me my California and spicy tuna!

I Love sushi! I got my BFF to love sushi by letting her get maki and cucumber rolls to start since the idea of raw fish freaked her out. Once she got a taste of seasoned rice and nori, she was gung-ho about the others. Her favorite is Salmon Avocado Roll!
