i got really pinterest crazy once upon a time and created a set of season lists.
last week...my husband and i took a day trip downtown!
(when i say downtown, i mean the 10 minutes it takes to get into the heart of the city.)
i'm still in tourist mode, so i'm completely in awe of the amazing buildings here.
before getting downtown, we went to see the LEGO MOVIE!
i really loved it, but my husband didn't quite share my enthusiasm. haha.
i guess i'm just more of a little kid inside, because i loved it.
mikey and i are both very competitive and we have ongoing bets all the time on who can be who in anything and everything... wheel of fortune. monopoly on ps. and arcade games.
(for the record, i dominate in foosball.)
we came to dave and buster's to settle some bets. (all of which, i lost! haha.)
mikey and i ended our amazing date night with this amazing show.
i am in love with jimmy fallon. i've loved him from snl and the late show
and i'm sooo excited that i can watch his show an hour earlier!!
this place will always remain one of my very favorites. basil sushi bar in williston, nd.
the oil boomtown doesn't have much in the way of good restaurants, so i was more than excited when this place not only served edible food, the staff and service are amazing.
last fall, i was managing a big hotel up in north dakota and i would visit regularly with my assistant.
we always got basically the same thing.
the sesame chicken lunch. it's one of the best best things on the menu. when my husband and i would visit, he would get the mongolian beef and loved it. we ordered sushi to go occasionally and had lunch in my office. we also regularly ordered just the fried rice, because it's phenomenal.
the staff here is very professional and friendly. they knew me by name because i paid every time. (they saw my credit card a lot!) after a few trips in, they met us at our table with our memorized drink order. they didn't even give us menus because we stuck to "the usual".
i'm not sure that i recommend eating mass amounts of chinese food regularly.
i also don't recommend working 14-16 hour days where your only peace and quiet was the inside of this restaurant. but i absolutely recommend building relationships with local businesses. these people are great. i'm very grateful to have had such a positive experience with them. if you are ever in north dakota, it is totally worth stopping by. i'm now living in chicago and i look forward to making these same connections here with the locals. =)
“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside.”
