Wowza, I come back to WordPress and there are new updates? Rad. Time to figure out how to utilize them! This post dates back to the last weekend of February. It was such a fun one. I’m sad that I put posting on the back burner last week, so I’ll continuously play catch up. Since Daylight Savings Time was this weekend, I’m a little disoriented too.
I’m taking a hiatus with the FWMD series so I can get more organized and have more meals lined up to not fall behind on posting them. I will bring it back though!
Anyways, I’ll just jump right in to what we’ve been up to. I’ll have to save this past weekend for a later post because it’s pretty lengthy. [We went to see Dan + Shay in concert! Currently listening to The Band Camino right now as I’m typing this post.]
On Saturday, I was craving some Vietnamese food because Hunida keeps showing yummy pictures of her dishes whenever she goes out for some! I’ve been wanting to try Miss Saigon for quite some time, so we ventured over there for our lazy Leap Year Day.
They had their walls painted and this was the mural by our table.
We started off with some egg rolls. It wasn’t too much longer whenever our entrees arrived.
Stephen ordered the Pho Filet Mignon and he was quite happy with his meal. He finished it off in no time.
I ordered the Bún Miss Sagion, and that was a feast! It was such a good meal and the amount of meat you get with this dish was wonderful! I need to make a mental note to myself to not pour a lot of sauce in the noodles because they get a bit soggy whenever I eat them as leftovers. The meat had that seared flavor that I absolutely love. I will definitely order this again.
A shop or two down from Miss Saigon is an Asian market that’s the size of a grocery store! I was in heaven. At K&S World Mart, I found the spicy peanuts that I love so much — and they were in a bigger bag, so I definitely know where to get my fix now for them!
Stephen mentioned an app where you can view your jumbotron videos, so here’s the footage from the game we went to on the 18th!
On Sunday, I went to Clarksville to meet my friend KaSandra to spend a few hours with her. We went to her church and then to Plumb Line afterwards. I ordered the Whiskey Caramel and it tasted as good as I remember it.
Afterwards, we checked out Customs House Museum & Cultural Center.
I honestly had no idea that this place existed, so I was excited to go.
I wasn’t sure if I could take photos of the art work, but you should definitely check it out if you’re in Clarksville.
They have a kids section in the basement sort of area in the building. Of course, you could find us adults in the bubble room playing around.
It’s only on Sundays when they are operating this massive but tiny train set. It’s so cute! There are little buttons that you can press and somewhere on the display and something will light up or move.
Notice the Piggly Wiggly lit up in this instance.
I thought the train display in the corner was fascinating. I’d love to ride on a train someday.
Here’s a little comic relief/scary situation. I honestly wouldn’t know what to do in that scenario.
Here’s a larger scope of how big the set is, but the picture doesn’t even show all the display!
After hanging out with KaSandra, I visited Alexis for a few hours. We watched some music videos. “The Man” is pure genius and I adore it. I’ve watched it a handful of times to spot the little hints Taylor always leaves in her work. We like Harry Styles’ new video for “Falling.” It’s so him. I like what he’s doing, so I’m curious to see how his career will progress.
I left around dinnertime to go back home. While we were at K&S World Mart, I found the spicy ramen noodles that people were buzzing about, so I had to see for myself.
I definitely shouldn’t have put the container in the microwave because it started to burn, my bad. There were a lot less noodles than I expected in it, but probably due to how spicy they are, maybe?
After eating them, I expected them to be spicier. Stephen tried a few noodles and nope, he could not. He had a glass of milk from eating a bite! The noodles were spicy enough to make me sweat a little, but we both agreed that the Reaper Jerky I buy is hotter than these noodles. I’m glad to finally try them though! The mart had bottles of the sauce, so maybe I should get that instead. Either way, I’ll have to buy more during the next trip I make there. The place is so huge that it’s overwhelming, but I’m here for it.
Tomorrow is Stephen’s 27th birthday, [such an old man] so we’re going to celebrate a little bit! He wants to go to P.F. Chang’s for dinner since it’s close to the venue where Bilmuri is playing tomorrow — what a coincidence.
- What did you do on February 29th?
- Have you traveled by train before?
- What’s the spiciest thing that you have eaten so far?
