And that is that, my friends.

Today I'm linking up with Jenni for some serious instagramness.

I had a great, relaxing but productive weekend.

Friday night was date night. We went to a newish Chinese restaurant close to my house called Wangs. We actually tried to go to dinner here a few weeks ago but it was SO busy there was no way we were waiting. My boyfriend made a reservation this week so he didn't have to deal with me saying "I'm hungry" every two minutes while we waited could get right in. The food was really good at a reasonable price and even though I've had better Chinese in San Diego the restaurant ambiance had some SERIOUS swag.  Like turn my swag onnnnn status. The place was an old department store so the restaurant was HUGE and had a really sexy atmosphere. I'd definitely go back! For some reason they had Pad Thai? Next time I'm trying it.

Sake is a must.

The lamp above our table. I'd love to have this!

We shared the mongolian beef and the kung pao chicken.

Saturday we? he put together the shoe cabinet I got from Ikea. 

Jeff doesn't know I took this picture of him cuz I am SO sly. 

If you're reading this, sorry ;)

I am in LOVE with this shoe cabinet!! It's fits almost all of my boots so they're no longer on the floor in my closet. YES!

I straightened my hair with two mirrors so the back was SUPER straight...for once ;)

Saturday night we made one of the best pizzas ever. It's inspired from a pizza we really like called "The Godfather." It has a ton of cheddar, colby, and monterey jack cheese, big tomato slices, salami, feta and olive chicken sausage, caramelized onions....and more cheese. #idmarrycheese. I'm so happy we made the call to use a Boboli crust and not a homemade one just because I wasn't about to skimp on toppings and typically the homemade crusts come out kind of thin.

Saturday was game night with the boyfriend, his sister, and her boyfriend. We played a game called Puerto Rico. I'd love to explain it to you, but I have no idea what you really do. My strategy consists of stopping other people from getting points since I really have no idea how to rack up points at the end of the game. It took awhile for everyone to get the hang of it so it was a really long game. I did not win. And I like to win things you know ;)

Next time ;)

Sunday was a lazy day of making blueberry pancakes for breakfast, cleaning my room, installing new sponsor ads! to your right and watching The Walking Dead. I like zombies. If you haven't seen the show I HIGHLY recommend watching the first season on Netflix. It's not even that gory! I hope you all have a zombie apocalypse plan. I'd tell you mine but my whole theory is to do what everyone else WON'T do so I can't tell you.
