Buddha Bowl

This buddha bowl just gave me life. – Lettuce – Japanese miso dressing – Boca Chik’n veggie patties – Chow mein noodles – Roasted shredded seaweed My number 3 child stayed home from school today because he felt sick, and then I started feeling sick. I ended up taking a nap, which isn’t a usual thing for me. I woke up with a fever. I finally got myself to eat lunch at around 3pm and felt better by the time I finished this satisfying salad. Jumped in the shower  ...

Annual Family Dinner

Since moving to Las Vegas, at the end of the year my in-laws take all of their sons and wives out to eat at a nice restaurant. Last year we we to Oishi, an all-you-can-eat sushi bar. This year we checked out Nabe Hotpot. It was a lot of fun — being that this was our (The Beefcake & I) first shabu experience, but i probably won’t go back again. Their broth wasn’t very tasty, the rice was under cooked, and they gave us sesame oil instead of tempura sauce for our shrimp  ...

Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone is having a happy holiday season. Things have been meh since The Beefcake is STILL in Cali, he missed Zion’s birthday and will be missing Kingston’s BUT we got pleasantly surprised—TWICE—today. First, there was a huge box outside of my door when I got home after dropping The Heathens off at school. Had no idea what it was and thought I bought something that I forgot about. Don’t front, you do that too! Turns out, my parents got me a new vacuum. Later that day  ...

The Beefcake

Got some pictures from The Beefcake of him putting in some works in Paradise, CA. He’s been there since last month (after Thanksgiving) helping with the fires.  I’m so proud of him, he’s such a hardworking guy.  I haven’t been blogging much but since he started working for this company in 2017, he already got promoted to Foreman and it hasn’t even been a year yet.

Snip Snip

This child of mine needs a haircut. It’s like pulling teeth. I don’t know why he resists so much. He is so handsome! I put my beauty school skills to work today and cut a lot of this weight off. This kid has really thick hair, and I think it makes it hard for him to wash his hair. He’s always scratching at his head—maybe he has ukus (lice). lol *knock on wood* I usually part off the top, shave the sides and fade it. Then I take all the bulk and cut it to length, then use a  ...

The Sibling

My younger sibling has recently moved in with me, I’m excited and a little scared.  It happened all pretty quick.  The me a year ago would have said no to this plan, but I’ve done a ton of work on forgiving and I really do want to see Trice do better.  Since this change, we’ve been walking every morning at the park for about 2 hours.  It’s been nice, that’s how I got that shot of the ducks.  I even started playing Pokemon lol which gets me out of the house more  ...

Freedom

Our weekend was eventful, per usual. My younger sibling came up with Maria (the girlfriend), and we went one adventures.  Hit up a cool crystal shop near the strip, went to the indoor swap meet — wanted to fight the lady at the door, copped some of Conor McGregor’s whiskey and watched the fight, checked out Pure Aloha, and saw the nephews.  So we had full house since Trice was in town, and come Monday my house was quiet.  Our older two went to Utah for a month to spend time with my  ...

Calories Don’t Count When You Eat Asian

Today my daughter and I went grocery shopping at the asian markets and she wanted to hit up this brand new spot called Takopa, a Japanese Street Food joint. So like any ordinary mother would say to her young adult child, YOU PAY! It’s on Spring Mountain and Wynn, right by 99 Ranch Market. My daughter got the Shio Ramen, this one is a chicken based broth, she usually get the Tonkatsu Ramen from Izakaya Go (same owner) but I think this is going to be her new spot. It was so good! It  ...
