Getting Fatter

I’ve been M.I.A. and I’m not sorry. Family came and I’d rather spend it with them since I never see them. You’ll be able to see what we did down below which is mostly eating. Bah …

Lunch with contractor company at the Omni Hotel. YUM!

Happy hour after work with Mallory, Stephen, Samantha and a nice reunion with Judith. It’s been forever but it was nice seeing her.

WEDNESDAY:

At work. Our playground. Taking a break from working on our presentation that will be on this upcoming Wednesday. Eeks.

THURSDAY:

Mary Kay party with Mallory, Judith, Maggie, Mallory’s sister and mum, and her friend from soccer. I bought a few things that ended up being in the 80s. Whoops. Hopefully it’s worth it. Never thought I’d feel like a grownup until I bought expensive crap.

The question asked what kind of eyes I have … and Asian was a choice. Too funny. And might be a little racist …

Anvil Bar & Refuge

Houston, TX 77006

Went with brother and Tammy, and met up with Jenny and her new beau.

Boilermaker [1/2 pint of beer & paired spirit] | $8

It wasn’t bad. But I wouldn’t get this again.

Campari Popcorn | $5

It’s popped to order and Jenny and I were very excited for this … but when we ate a bite we wanted to throw up. Campari is apparently a type of liquor and once you it it you feel your taste buds turn bitter. Bleugh! Brother threw some limes on there and it helped.

Pork Belly Taco, Pickles, Ranch Dressing Cole Slaw | $8

Holy yum … get this whenever you land in anvil. So good. I wish there was more than 3 mini tacos on the plate though.

This place is unique with the way they make their drinks. So many different kinds. I really liked the Montebello (?) Tammy got … I would definitely get that instead next time!

88 Boiling Crawfish & Seafood
1910 Wilcrest Dr.
Houston, TX 77042
(713) 789-8288

Boudin, fries, crabs, crawfish, oysters … and so much more. It’s like Boiling Crab but better. Next time I’m getting two pounds of crawfish and boudin. Oh my boudin. They have happy hour in where their crawfish is a dollar off a pound. So amazing. I hope not many people find out about it because I love that it wasn’t packed!

After this we watched The Internship. Such a good funny movie. Go watch it if you haven’t.

SATURDAY:

Went shopping at the outlet for forever and spent over $80 … whoops.

Came home and had Korean BBQ as celebration for Father’s Day. Mmm …

Played The Game of Things with brother, Tammy, and Jenny and her beau came over. Too much laughter. Love this game. We stayed up til 2am playing. We are ridiculous.

SUNDAY:

Kublai Khan
20940 Katy Freeway
Katy, TX 77449
(281) 398-3658

This place is better than Genghis Grill … in they give you more noodles/rice than GG. Won my heart. I want to go back already.

Brother, Tammy, and Jenny went back to Dallas along with Pluto and Krypto. Now I’m all alone.

Sad life. But love the time I had with them. We ate so much but now that everyone’s gone I’m able to stop eating out as much.

Whoo … long post. Good night.

Too Much Food

Two days of no posts. Whoops. I’ve been … lazy.

Thursday:

Went out to Lenny’s with some coworker’s.

Lenny’s Sub Shop
14625 Memorial Dr
Houston, TX 77079
(281) 293-8700
www.lennys.com

The coworker’s claim it’s better than Subway or Quizno’s. I do not agree. Although Lenny’s do not skimp out on the meat, I feel the other places had more toppings. I need a lot of vegetables …

Later that day we had Happy Hour at Watson’s.

Watson’s House of Ales
14656 Grisby Rd
Houston, TX 77079
(281) 920-2929
www.watsons.com

WORST service ever. Plus they don’t have happy hour prices. At least we didn’t get them. I know it’s Thursday after work but um … wtf! We waited for a good hour for service sitting at our table. Then when we put our order in we had to wait another 30 minutes. And not everyone got their drinks! Maybe we went on the wrong day but for seriously? All of us agreed not to go there ever again. Once was enough.

The only good thing was a dude buying a beer for me. Score.

Had brunch with Amanda and her friend at Black Walnut Cafe. I got the French Dip this time around. I didn’t dip my sandwich. As for the meat, it wasn’t that amazing. It had a smell to it. Next time I’m going to try the Chicken Pesto Pasta Salad. Mmmm …

I also got a Chocolate Cannoli and a Pistachio Canolli. That stuff is delicious. I’ve asked Sissy to make cannoli’s happen at her wedding …

Sissy and Brett came to visit later that afternoon so we played Marvel Ultimate Alliance II. We beat it!

Bruno chilling on me as I gamed on.

While I was at the vet with Rocky, Sissy and Brett went and got Rudy’s takeout! YUM! Moist brisket!

Saturday:

I’ve done absolutely nothing. And it feels AMAZING. Thank goodness for the days we can just relax. I did get my crawfish fix though. Not a lot but enough to be happy.

Tomorrow I am going to see Samantha! It’s been a good two weeks! We are hoping to get some green beer. 😉

Whoo … that is a lot of stuff in one post.

Good night!
