Lunch Date, Homework Date, Nephew Date

Today has been a great day, and very productive!  I met my bud Tricia for lunch at Orange.  We both ordered the bulgogi sandwich with fries, and it was awesome - I'd say the best sandwich I've had in a restaurant.  


The fries are also the best in the city, in my opinion.  We were both very impressed and will be ordering this dish again.  I took half of my meal home for tomorrow's lunch.

I also spent time working on my thesis today.  Most of my time was spent working with numbers (finding effect size for some of my statistics) and putting together a table.  Tomorrow and Friday I'll work on writing  my conclusion.

Later today I picked up my nephew to hang out and have a sleepover.  I told him we could spend the later afternoon/evening doing anything he wanted, and gave him plenty of options.  We started by playing a round of miniature golf.

 
 

Next he wanted to go to the arcade.  He played games for an hour, ending off with shredding drums.


He had told me earlier that he wanted to go for sushi for dinner (he is not your average 5 year old!), but was pretty tired out after the arcade and changed his mind.  He didn't want to go to a restaurant, so we ordered pizza instead.


Pajamas, a movie and snuggles and then off to bed!

Are there any little people in your life (your own or perhaps a niece/nephew)?

That sandwich looks delicious! And I wish I had nieces and nephews - but not quite at that age yet. Some of my cousins are starting to have kids though!

Aw, that is an awesome nephew date! I love doing dates like that with my nephews, and need to do it more often! I love that he loves sushi - what an open minded eater!!

That is awesome that you are working on the conclusion of your thesis. It is going to feel so good to have that done!

Spending time with the little ones in your life is the best!! Looks like you had an awesome time with your nephew! I have a few little ones around - my son, who is 2, my nephew who is 3 and my niece who is 1. They are the best!

No little people. I think I'd kinda like a niece or nephew, but not of my siblings, in-laws or step siblings are close to procreation yet. Maybe someday!

Jolene, thanks so much for visiting my blog! Love meeting new folks online. Gotta love a lunch big enough to have leftovers for the next day, huh?

Blessings to you this year!

So cute!

I have an 8 year old son and a 6 year old daughter. I find them endlessly amusing, but super frustrating, too. I also have a couple of nieces on my husband's side and two nephews on my side.
