Goodbye to October

You know the saying that things never go as planned?

Well this Halloween that came true. We were suppose to go to Halloween party but I didn’t find out that it was on Friday till I came home after work. Here I thought that I still had one day to make our costumes but it was really three hours.

So as I looked at my bf with stress flowing through my eyes we said f*** it lets not go.

Usually I want to wear a costume or do something creative but I figured my Selena costume was enough for me this year. Since we didn’t go I returned all our supplies and it felt good to get my money back. We spent probably like around 60 dollars on all the material and figured that we should’ve bought the real ones. So as we laughed it off we planned out our weekend.

On Saturday we went to the Luxe Buffet that is located in the Westminster mall. When you walk in you get overwhelmed with the different aroma’s that you have no clue where to start. They had sushi, crab legs, variety of soups, Brazilian BBQ, Chinese food, ice cream bar, mini donuts, macaroons and so much more. Once we were done we had to walk around the mall because we were seconds from falling into a food coma.

As for Sunday my bf took me to his favorite taco place in Santa Monica. Ever since he started his new job he has been raving about this restaurant. So this weekend we had some time to go and check it out. I completely fell in LOVE with those tacos!!! The way that they marinate the Asada is foodgasm worthy. I was really impressed when I saw the quality of meat…no fatty parts. One thing I always check when going to any Mexican restaurant is their rice and beans. If they can’t master an easy side dish then that’s usually a sign that the food won’t be good.

Later we met up with one of my bf friends and we headed to a haunted house. The place we went to was held by a martial arts school. Their theme was Revenge of the Ninja; Vengeance is their Legacy. We were put in a group with a family of three. As we began walking I started to get scared, lucky there was a boy in front of me. He would start freaking out when we would turn a corner and apart of me was thinking the same thing he was. Surely my bf took over and pushed us ahead of them. He mostly did that because he wanted the people to focus on scaring me instead of the little boy. After the whole thing was over I thought that it was a great experience especially because it was free.

I had such a great weekend that I’m sad that October is already over. Today I take down all my decorations and get mentally ready for Christmas because we both know it will be here in a blink of an eye.

 

Valentine’s Day

Even though we went to Portland for our anniversary I couldn’t help but want to do something simple on our actual day. Since it falls on the most overpriced day of the month we thought let’s do something cheap and fun.

That did not happen…well at least not on my end. I love my boyfriend so much that sometimes I can’t help but want to spoil him. So I made a reservation to my baby’s favorite restaurant, Fogo De Chao. It is an all you can eat Brazilian BBQ place that has high quality meat.

After that we went home and changed for the next thing on our agenda. My boyfriend took me to one of his secret locations in P.V. (Palos Verdes). We hike down this steep mountain and managed to get to this fire pit that outlook the ocean. After almost freaking out twice getting there, I will say that the beautiful view was worth it.

My boyfriend got the fire going and I got our marshmallows ready. It was a perfect way to end our hike.

I ended the night by surprising my boyfriend with his present. I got him some Valentine day candy, Star Wars magazine and this photo I made of us.

It’s pretty crazy looking back at how we met and how instantly we connected. I was taken by surprised of how much happiness he has brought into my life. Sometimes I find myself at aww of how my life is now and how I couldn’t imagine it without him.

 

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s day!

Love,
