First Time at N & J Café

Posted on December 15, 2013 by under Food and Drink.    

Pictures from our first time at N & J Café…

Untitled

Yanila and Paul both had the crazy strong coffee.

This is a photo of my chicken and artichoke wrap with a double side of hummus.

Untitled

Brian had the chicken shawarma. Another thing we got to try from their menu is the Mediterranean chicken wings appetizer. It was yummy. Thank you to Carla and Paul for ordering it and sharing.

Untitled

This is Christina’s tabouli and large plate of hummus.

Untitled

I think this is the mixed grill.

Untitled

I had flan for dessert. I just couldn’t pass it up.

N & J Cafe & Bakery on Urbanspoon

The highlight of the evening had to be the dancer. I had no idea that they had dancers perform at the restaurant every Saturday night.

The dancer is actually a good friend of my friend Christina so she came by our table several times during dinner. She bantered with Paul quite a bit and actually got him to dance with her. I’m so glad that Paul has a lucrative career because he definitely cannot dance for a living. LOL.

Dinner was actually a lot of fun. Brian and I still like MIF Deli better, but the food there is pretty good and the live entertainment is a bonus. I would return to N & J again. Thank you so much to Christina for organizing dinner. Had it not been for her we wouldn’t have had reason to try N & J Café.

Red Envelope Makes Me Happy

Posted on December 15, 2013 by under Shopping, Wishlist.

I always love getting presents from Red Envelope. It doesn’t even matter what’s inside. LOL. I just love the beautiful red box and ribbon. The lovely packaging never fails to pique my interest and I eagerly anticipate what’s inside.

Untitled

Nothing extravagant in the boxes this time — just our personalized Christmas stockings. It doesn’t matter what you get really. I’ve never gotten anything from Red Envelope that I didn’t like. The best part is that you can get 10% cash back from Ebates for every Red Envelope purchase. If you’re not a member of Ebates and if you’ve never purchased anything from Red Envelope, you’re totally missing out.

Brian’s Work Christmas Party

Posted on December 11, 2013 by under Events.    

We had a lot of fun at Brian’s work Christmas party last weekend. They have an annual get together at his boss’ boss’ boss’ house in Rose Hill. We’d never been able to attend until now because they always have the party the same night as our Employees’ Association holiday party at work. This year the parties are on separate weekends so we were finally able to attend.

Untitled

We had such a blast!

Untitled

Some of the funniest white elephant gifts were the Accounting for Dummies book, the toilet seat (thankfully not a used one), and plunger.

Untitled

I have no idea how Brian picked the plunger out of all the gifts that were left. I don’t think he was paying close attention because he picked a gift wrapped in the same wrapping paper as the toilet seat. I would have totally stayed away from that one. LOL.

Untitled

Brian and I were more sneaky, though. Instead of bring two gag gifts or two serious gifts, we brought one each. Our serious gift was a glass bathroom scale and our gag gift was a Bra Maid, which Brian’s boss’ boss’ boss’ eldest son Jonathan ended up with. That was hilarious.

Untitled

Untitled

Brian didn’t end up coming home with the plunger gift, though. He ended up stealing the Indulge Cafe Style Hot Chocolate Kit from someone else. It’s actually pretty awesome. I know because I’ve used it already.

I had stolen a candle warmer kit but it was promptly stolen from me so I ended up coming home with a vibrating massager thing. It’s okay. Not a substitute for Michael at Sveta’s, though. Speaking of, we are about due for another couple’s massage!

Brian Earns Bonus Points

Posted on December 8, 2013 by under Relationship.    

Sierra did my makeup at Beau Monde the other day. I’m not sure if Brian got an “after” picture, but this is what I looked like before she did her magic.

Untitled

I wish I had an “after” picture to show you guys because she did such an amazing job. It’s a lot like getting your hair done at the salon. The professionals always make you look so much better. I think so anyways so I asked Brian, “Would you like it if I learned how to do my makeup and looked like this all the time?” It’s a valid question because I rarely ever do my makeup. I’m just not any good at it.

Brian really surprised me with his response. He said he preferred me the way I am without all the makeup. He’s like, “Makeup done right always enhances the way that someone looks so of course most women look better with makeup and many women need makeup to look good. However, there are women who can get by without makeup because they’re naturally beautiful. You’re one of those people.”

That was really sweet. And, he definitely earned some bonus points that day. Although, no matter what he says, I still prefer the way I look with makeup. I’m going to take makeup application lessons one of these days. LOL.

Candlelight Christmas Concert

Posted on December 5, 2013 by under Events.    

Untitled

Brian and I were fortunate enough to get tickets to the 51st Annual Candlelight Christmas Concert presented by Wichita State University’s School of Music.

Untitled

The concert was awesome. I want to go again next year but I want to bring Brian’s parents next time. I think his mom would really enjoy it.
