Thank you all for such kind supportive comments earlier! John let us know he is okay today and that was huge. Without going into details, we know now without a doubt that he is okay, he is happy and is with us all the time. Sometimes you just have to pinch yourself and wonder is this really my life?! It wasn’t supposed to be this way! Such is life. You gotta keep goin’ forward!
So on to tonight! I put on my favorite heels and met Lanie in Anthro before walking over to Restaurant BT together, which is right next door to my apartment.
We orginally were just going to have a cocktail but ended up eating a very yummy dinner! Take a look at this delicious cocktail list!
Can you guess what I got?!
Nothing else but the Mango Passion Mojito Martini, obvi!!! I ADORE mojitos and this was, without a doubt, one of the best drinks I’ve ever had. It was very sweet from the mango and passion fruit nectars and just delicious. That’s a piece of dried mango to garnish (of course I ate the garnish)!
Today was actually the first of the new menu at BT where you could create your own Vietnamese style tapas plate so we ordered a small plate with a shrimp crepe, spicy prawn roll and tuna wrap to share while we sipped and chatted—
Everything was delicious!
At this point we had finished our drinks (mine tasted just a juice pouch and went down lightening speed) and we each ordered one more. This time I tried what Lanie had gotten, the Wild Orchid Martini—
Hot dang! Wheras my first drink was a juice pouch and not strong AT ALL, this was the polar opposite. It had a strong floral taste and you could definitely taste the alcohol. I probably drank a little less than half of this….I have trouble drinking liquor drinks where I can taste the alcohol!
We then decided we needed food. Pronto. Lanie ordered chicken pho and I ordered a rice noodle bowl with pan fried tofu
It was delicious but I probably only finished half of it. I wasn’t starving after the drink and the appetizers but this tasted very good!
We each a couple more sips of our drinks and then I walked across the street home. Talk about convenient! I then proceeded to plunk myself down on the couch and make tea while wrapped in a blanket—
And then when Ryan got home we went out for ice cream at this fine Tampa establishment—
I ADORE places like this! Nothin’ but down home goodness. I got exactly what I was craving—a small vanilla dipped cone 🙂
I devoured it.
This afternoon I was feeling a migraine coming on so I made a BIG green monster to ward away the wiggies.
This bad boy contained 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla hempmilk, 1 spoonful raw almond butter and probably five cups of spinach. It was good but would have been better with a full banana, not just a half.
I’m getting in my jammies and headed to bed. Its been a long, rather exhausting day both physically and emotionally and I need some major zzz’s! See you in the morning1
