That last picture is of a Japanese delicacy called Uni. If I've done my research correctly, Uni is the gonads of a Sea Urchin. Ew. I was double dog dared into slurping this thing down last year. So naturally, this year I double dog dared CB to do so. He is a liar and said it was delicious. I don't believe him. Ew. Ok but, Sea Urchin Gonads.
We had a great time getting all festive for the event! CB even wore his finest bow-tie....
We helped ourselves to a night cap at a new bar that opened up a couple of hoods down from me! It wasn't Deep Ellum, but the glow of the Christmas lights called me in!
On Saturday I was supposed to go camping in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. You may remember that bet I lost? CB certainly hasn't forgotten. But last minute I said, "Yeah don't put me down for camping..." and hit up a Dallas Stars game with my friend Vanessa instead!
Not camping > Camping.
Cozy bed > Pitched Tent.
No Bears > Bears.
Need I continue? Or have I proven my point?! Moving on...
On Sunday, I finished up all of my Christmas shopping, and grabbed a couple of happy birthday to me presents while I was at it. AKA the sold out errrrywhere Duck Boots I've been lusting after, that I just so magically stumbled upon right as I was leaving the mall! They had one pair left, in the exact color I wanted, in the exact size I needed. It was a birthday miracle people. A birthday miracle.
I also found this awesome peace sign wreath from Urban Outfitters, and promptly forced the boyfriend to take ridiculous and unnecessary photos. Because it is my birthday week, dang it.
And if you remember from last year, I tend to want ridiculous things for my birthday.
And then, after waiting all day for Sunday Night, the Cowboys game finally arrived. Here in Dallas, the train system is called the DART. I'm lucky enough to live right on a DART stop on the Green Line. Other than going to American Airlines Center for Mavs and Stars games, we have yet to really explore the possibilities the DART provides. So last night we decided to get wild and crazy and watch the game at a downtown Dallas sports bar. This was a winning idea. I snapped pictures like I was a tourist that didn't live a mile down the road...
Pizza + Bar = Heaven. What more could a girl need? Oh yeah, a cowboys win doesn't hurt either! Happy Monday, may the coffee be over flowing for you and yours!
