MeKong Cafe




There is a Thai restaurant down the street from us called MeKong Cafe. We have not eaten there for a couple years and decided to go again. We did like it a lot last time we went, so I'm not sure why it took us so long to go back.

Tony got the beef with a side of cucumbers, his favorite! Just kidding.

I got the yellow curry chicken dish and it was a little spicy but nothing I couldnt handle. It came with potatoes, zuchinni and carrots in it and gave me enough leftovers for lunch. I also got a side of rice (not pictured).

Here's the address if you are interested in going to eat here:
7777 S State St, Midvale, UT 84047

Texas Roadhouse Favorites

One of our favorite places to eat is Texas Roadhouse and luckily we have one down the street from us. We prefer to go when we have a coupon but they are great about letting us share a meal too. Here's what we got last time we went (with a giftcard I'd gotten Tony for Christmas).

 Frozen strawberry lemonade - so fancy!

 
Unlimited rolls? Who can say no? Not me!

 Tony cleaned the meat off these ribs so fast I couldnt get a picture.

Normally I get the kabob but this time I switched it up and got a piece of medium well steak instead. Side of mashed potatoes and veggies (not pictured) made for the perfect meal.

What's your favorite restaurant where you live? Let me know in a comment!

A Trip To Idaho

 

My dad emailed my family on Friday letting us know he was going to get a new calling on Sunday in his ward if any of us wanted to come see it all go down. I'm always down for a roadtrip so my sister Laura, her 2 boys and I all headed out Friday afternoon to Boise.  Tony wanted to come but had too much homework and Rocky was still in Peru. So..girls trip! (minus the 2 boy-kids traveling with us).

School is Cool!

 So I am not sure how many of you saw my Facebook post or not about applying to LDS Business College in December to go back to school because believe it or not, school is actually cool when you find a degree you want to get so badly! This is what happened to me, I heard about a degree called Social Media Marketing and decided to apply ( a real college - not a community college! ) and what do you know...

Midway Ice Castles

 We missed being able to go last year to the ice castles in Midway and so luckily we were able to use our previous tickets on this years event. Especially because it was only going to be open for a few days since the weather has been so warm.

Vegas Blogger Meetup

My friend and fellow blogger Wendy, who lives in Las Vegas, told me about a blogger meetup going on during CES and she picked me up after I got done at the convention and we headed to a restaurant called Serendipity on the strip.

Consumer Electronics Show Day 3

Headed to CES for the last day! I snapped this as I was driving so it's not the best but you get the idea. This is a long post full of pictures and words so you can scroll and look at pictures or you can read as you go. I just have so much to share from the last day!

Consumer Electronics Show Day 2

I spent my second day at CES wandering around the main halls again. There is SO much to see and do. Things to stand in line for and make something or try to win something. Huge boothes with tons to see. Tiny booths. It's just a lot to take in. Here's some of what I saw on Thursday! It's a LOT of pictures but enjoy.

Consumer Electronics Show Day 1

 I arrived in Las Vegas Tuesday evening around 10pm. It only took me 5 hours to get here which was nice, no bad weather to deal with! I am staying with my friend Kylee in NLV so it's a perfect arrangement! Downtown is not too far and I am staying in a comfy bed with a great friend hosting me!

YW Night Of Excellence

We borrowed this from another ward. It was huge and the girls could stand in front of it to get their picture taken before walking down the 'red carpet.' It was so nice to be able to use this!

Project Life Experience

Shoutout to my sister Laura first off for telling me about this opportunity or I never would have known. I follow Becky Higgins (creator of Project Life) on my blog Instagram but I dont log in to that account every day and Becky had posted on there that she needed some last minute help setting up her booth for the Pinners Conference. I had been hanging out at Laura's house but headed straight over to Sandy to the expo center. When I got there, there were about 12 or so other women there helping Becky but they said they could still use my help.

My sister Laura & I went to the grand opening of a new Uptown Cheapskate location in Sugarhouse in October and I was so very excited to attend. There is an UC close to where I live and I frequent it often, to either sell clothes or browse whats new.

Halloween Shenanigans

Our ward trunk or treat was a week before Halloween so that was nice. We combined with the other ward and added a chili cookoff to the party too.
