What Claire Ate: April 22nd, 2014

23 Apr

Sometimes I get busy and backlogged on this thing. I think things like “I’ll just post three days at once!” and then I don’t.

Sooooo…we’ll just start again with yesterday.

We went to Trader Joe’s on Monday, so you’ll be seeing a lot of that nonsense.

I started the day with a variety of liquids.

TWO BEVERAGES.

TWO BEVERAGES for TWO KNEES.

Lunch got kind of weird/fancy.

Shredded brussel sprouts with zucchini, a fried egg, shredded cheese, and pastrami

This Coachella marks the 8th anniversary of Sean and I “going together.” We can never remember the exact date, but we do remember that we started “hanging out” at Coachella, so we always just celebrate Coachella weekend.

EIGHT YEARS OF HANGIN'

Anyways. Sean brought me a venti black tea lemonade, which I forgot to take a picture of.

Then we went to The Oxford Exchange and had afternoon tea! It was awesome! Each person chooses their tea, and then they bring out a tray of goodies!

The tower.

Uh then I finally updated my phone to iOS7, so it was busy when I was watching Hannibal and eating grapes, crackers and IKEA cheese.

Do you guys watch Hannibal??? Wasn’t that dinner scene ridiculous?

Somewhere in between snack and supper, I created and taste tested four different cocktails for an xoPost.

When we got home, Sean made my drunk ass a breakfast sandwich (open-faced).

After Saturday’s shenanigans, it only seemed appropriate to start the day with a green smoothie.

Subbing pineapple for cherries really helps the color.

Then I had a beer.

This is a very good beer. It has ROSE PETALS and stuff in it.

Also some crudites and chips with some various dips (including Labneh).

For the birthday dinner, we went to this place in St. Pete.

I wanted the pate and New York strip, but they were out of those. So I got escargot and a lamb stew “hot pot.”

PUT ON THE RED LIGHT.

Then we rushed home to watch Game of Thrones.

I had a ginger ale (not pictured) and a whiskey ginger with this whiskey.

Though really, this can be enjoyed straight up or on a single rock.

HAHAHA WHOA.

Things got out of control. I blame IKEA, mostly.

And Sean. He had a hand in all of this as well.

It started with him (sweetly) making us a hearty American breakfast.

Not a smoothie.

Not a smoothie.

Then we went furniture shopping and used a gift card we had at Kane’s from when we bought our bed. We got a new coffee table (which is actually a trunk!) and a matching side table. While Sean checked out, I took funny pics at the “bar” that I found.

Look how hip it is!

I would throw back a cold one, but this fake lime is in the way.

After picking up our stuff at the warehouse, I made a small smoothie because I feel like my skin is improving (I think it’s the flaxseed oil). I forgot to take a pic, so here’s a pic of Angie licking the glass.

I didn't know her tongue was that long.

Guess where we went next? The next photo contains a HUGE hint.

Now with less horse? Maybe? I feel like that was never resolved.

We bought some more furniture stuff, which took way longer than we expected it to because IKEA.

Reward was this:

Actually not very good.

While Sean assembled everything, I drank pretty much an entire bottle of wine and assembled the spice racks we bought.
