We didn’t end up going to the fair today because my brother’s GF had to work. Instead we did some furniture shopping.
When we moved from Maryland to California a few weeks ago we only took clothes, small kitchen dishes/appliances, my standing desk and a super old family chair. We didn’t take that table in the background.
This means we need a ton of stuff now. I realize it’s going to take a lot of time and money to furnish our condo, but luckily it’s teeny tiny so we don’t need that much stuff.
But, what we do need right away is – a refrigerator, a dining room table and a bed –mattress and frame. In the next level (want and need) is a couch, desk for Ben and other decor.
But, just when we thought the day was going to be a total bust we found a winner. Not a winner in the sense of “Great! We found our dream bed!” but more a winner in the sense of “Wow! This place is ridiculous. Who buys a life size Pirate mannequin?”
As a matter of fact, I do need a full size iron knight replica!
After a long day of running and shopping I was
irritable and unpleasant HUNGRY by 6pm and ready to eat. I’ve been craving sushi so we looked up a place on Yelp and ended up at a small place in Cerritos.
Ben spotted this on the menu and we both got excited. We love garlic, so the Garlic Albacore Roll seems like an obvious choice.
Miso soup is a requirement for any sushi meal.
I ordered the Bento Box with 3 items – salmon teriyaki, coconut shrimp and a crunch roll.
Coconut shrimp with a delicious tartar sauce of some type. So good. I traded Ben a shrimp for
one two of his rolls.
After dinner we stopped at Borders to see if they had the Operation Beautiful book. I am excited to just see it on the shelf 🙂 But, they didn’t have it yet. Boo.
Have a good night 🙂
