Final Summer Sushi Blast
At the beginning of Summer Break 2018, I sent out a wish to get a certain College Peep hooked on sushi before the end of the break. And guess what?
I Did. Just. That.
This lovely slideshow is proof of my wish come true with pics of our delicious reverse happy hour sushi meal at H I R O 88, requested by none other than College Peep herself, complete with Shrimp & Veggie Tempura Appetizers, Husker / HIRO's Crunch / Sweet Chili Crab / West Coast Sushi Rolls, and Orange Mimosas to wash down all of that scrumptiousness.
And with that, Team Life-Long Sushi Quest just got one member stronger.
There's never a boring moment while shopping at Target with an English major, and yesterday's trip was a perfect example, as evidenced by this Entenmann's chocolate doughnut shelving label photo. After snapping this picture, the English Major and I took "dont" as a subliminal message encouraging us to stay on the straight-and-narrow and walk right past this frosted goodness.
Thankfully the wine aisle was free of any hidden messages.
Nest Slightly Emptier Again
Year #2 at UNL for this Husker Dude. Will be hearing fantom snoring behind his bedroom door as I walk past every morning until he returns home. A bright future definitely awaits him!
Beach Vacation Flashback
With another summer break coming to a close, I'm flashing back to sweet memories of a family beach vacation to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina where we camped out in a beach house rental and partied it up like nobody's business. Family vacations like these are rare - but seriously treasured. I mean who knows if/when we will get together again sharing sand, surf, and story time on a big leather sofa with Uncle Paco, right? But at least we can enjoy these digital memories of the magical time we shared thanks to my archival of Shutterfly photos just sitting there waiting to land in a blog post.
Employment Status & Zac Efron
As of today, I can safely report that 12 employers are thoughtfully considering hiring me for 19 vacant job positions. And with another phone interview and an online assessment scheduled to happen this week, things are still moving forward, albeit slower than freaking molasses as my dear Grandma would so eloquently state, but without the 'freaking' part. So I'm feeling super-dee-dooper excited about all of the activity and haven't developed an inferiority complex after all, thank goodness.
On a completely non-related track, my youngest is pulling in mega-bucks with his first job ever working as a lifeguard, all while enjoying the accolades of his own personal fan club who have voted him to be one of the top Mr. King of the Pool candidates (stay tuned - he could win!) and proclaimed him to be their Zac Efron look-a-like, an observation with which I shockingly agree after seeing Baywatch images of Zac sporting similar red lifeguard trunks.
This summer just got incredibly REAL.
