A Perfect Sunday


Always remember that...


Seriously, where did the weekend go? Saturday was a pretty relaxed day. Thankfully more sandstorms caused the husband to get off early, so we were able to spend most of the day together. We didn't really have anything planned, just watched movies all afternoon. Later on we decided we'd head out for dinner.

A few of you may of known that I've been having the biggest craving for Mexican lately. We found the only Mexican place to eat @ in Kuwait. Well, let's just say this may of been one of the biggest disappointments EVER! The service wasn't too great, the food was awful (ended up getting sick, and being attached to the toilet.. sorry for the TMI), and just so overly priced. Also, can you believe you had to pay for chips and salsa. I don't know how it is where you guys live, but they were always complimentary @ any other Mexican restaurant I've ever been too. Needless to say, I'll be sticking with my own Mexican meals at home. :( Our evening ended with watching the end too "Happy New Year's Eve". Have any of you watched it? What did you think? I wasn't expecting too much from it, so it was okay.

Now moving on to the Perfect Sunday. Yesterday started my "Birthday Week". Do you and your love ones celebrate it? It's kind of a big deal to me. I just don't think one day is enough for celebration :). I had orginally planned on heading to the gym to knock out a few miles, but decided to pass. We made our usual Sunday Morning trip to Starbucks before heading off to the Avenues, a huge mall about 20 minutes away.

                            Loving my Lite Caramel Frapp & hubby also thought you'd want to see his. He had a Chocolate Chip Mocha Frapp.

After we finished our drinks, we got in a cab and headed to the Avenues. Orginally we had plans to go to "Color Me Mine". Color Me Mine is a place where you can paint ceramic plates, bowls, mugs, anything. I've been wanting to do this for quite sometime, but once we got to the mall we found out the store is currently under construction. Oh well, we did the best next thing anyone would do... get lunch & head to the arcade! I don't care how old you are, no one is ever to old to play some games. For lunch we went with TGIF, and I just had my usual salad. Nothing worth taking a picture of. After lunch we bolted to the arcade.. yes we get excited for it :). Let me start off by saying, luck was with me yesterday. I kicked the hubbys butt @ basketball, won pretty much every game I played, and the hubby & I completely rocked "Deal or No Deal". We won the Jackpot prize of 500 tickets, and then decided to play again for 1000 tickets. Well, it came down 2 boxes.. one worth 1000 and one worth 20). Well the deal was 503 tickets. AHH, even though hubby told me to say "No Deal".. I just could not pass up 503 tickets and be stuck with 20. Ughh.. should've listened to hubby because I so would've been 497 tickets richer!! Darnit, oh well!

                                                               Yeah, Yeah I know.. i'm AWESOME :)

After spending a ridiculous amount of time @ the arcade, we had to wrap it up. We had a 3:15 movie date to catch. We decided on "The Amazing Spider Man". If you haven't seen it.. go see it! I have never really watched a full Spider Man movie through, I know crazy right... you'd think I was locked in a closet as a child or something... but it was such a good movie. I highly recommend it to anyone!

After the movie I could not wait to get back in a cab and head back home. I was so hungry and ready for dinner. For dinner, we decied to try a new to us Lebanese Restaurant. I'm one of those people that get so excited to try a new place, or food.. but when it comes down to order, I just stick with some sort of salad. It truly is something I need to work on.. maybe I'll add it to my New Years Resolution list (yeah I know that's a few months away, but no need to rush into things :)). The whole menu looked delicious, but I stuck with a safe meal.. a tuna salad.
         

(Sorry about the bad lighting, my phone was dying so the flash wouldn't work :() I figured you can never go wrong with a tuna salad.. which I was right & it was absolutely delicious! Ohh and hubby of course wanted to share his food. He decided on some sort of grilled meat. I did sneak a bite, and it was just as good :). I could not of been more pleased with the food, and the waiter. He was so helpful, and so sweet. Also, both the Assistant Manager and Manager took their time to come over to make sure everything was up to par. This is definitely a top favorite of ours in Kuwait, and cannot wait to go back.

After dinner we headed home, and relaxed. I of course couldn't head to bed without dessert. I had an unpictured frozen banana sliced with some pb & sugar-free strawberry jam on top. :)

Well there you have it.. My "Perfect Sunday". I hope all of you had an awesome weekend as well!

  3. That's so awesome you guys have an arcade near by. Yesterday I was totally being a kid and wanted to play laser tag, but there isn't laser tag OR an arcade within 2 hours of where we are. BUMMER! Looks like a great weekend (besides getting sick).
    That's so awful about Usher's step-son. I can't imagine the heartbreak..

    1. That's exactly what I'll be doing... jus stinks because for some reason, mexican restaurants always have the best chips & salsa. I don't know how they do it, but they do it right haha.

  7. haha, Starbuck's would probably be part of my perfect Sunday too! That's too bad the Mexican place was bad, I can relate to a big Mexican craving! We eat it all the time!

  8. That first picture is great! Thanks for sharing it. :) Movie afternoons in are the best... So that stinks about the Mexican food! Mexican is probably my #1 choice every time we go out to eat, so I can't imagine only being able to have it homemade. If I run across any awesome mexican recipes, I'll send them your way! Hope you're feeling better!

    Happy, happy birthday week! I use to be a big birthday celebrator, but as I've gotten older they have become less important.

    Your time at the arcade looks awesome and I totally agree- I cannot get enough of games no matter how old I am!! Fun times! Glad you had such a wonderful Sunday. :)
