Game Day Sunday Dress

Did you watch the big game this past Sunday? Me and the Mr. are not a big football fans but when the Super Bowl comes on, we make it a thing. We complete all our errands, pick up a couple snacks from the grocery store and stay in. We do not go out to any Super Bowl parties. We just do our own thing.

In light of Super Bowl Sunday I usually will wear a dress to church in my favorite team colors. I did not have a color of either team in my closet. What I did have was a dress I purchased this past Fall off the clearance rack at TJMaxx.

(Unfortunately I accidentally permanently deleted my original Sunday Morning photos,
 so today your getting cheesy mirror selfies after a long days work!)

This dress has been hanging in my closet for months because I did not know how or when to wear it. I wasn’t a big fan of it. The only reason I bought it was because it was only $2.00 and I didn't want to turn down such a bargain. (It's a girl thing).

My plan was to wait until spring and wear it for fun with my white Adidas tennis shoes, but for now, I took my chances with black tights and booties. The temperatures were in the 60's so the quarter length sleeves and nylon fabric felt nice. With the floral print and sports stripes on the neck line and sleeves, I thought it made the perfect dress to wear to church on Super Bowl Sunday.


After church we went out a little while then took a power walk around the neighborhood. Once we were settled in, we made burritos for dinner. While waiting on the game to start, I cooked up a batch of homemade granola. It was delicious eaten alone but would also be great as a topping to yogurt, ice cream or cereal.

Needless to say, I thought the game was rather boring and the commercials were not funny. I actually thought they were mostly ridiculous and my attention went to doing more crocheting.

Did you enjoy the Super Bowl?

Pho Feel'n

Whenever a new place to eat opens up in town, we like to visit it then we talk about it all the way home. Does anyone else do this?  We decided to try a new Asian Cuisine restaurant in town during restaurant week called "Pho Feel'n.

As we entered, we were greeted by a very friendly staff and a cute little hostess as my eyes were drawn to the original rustic wood floors of the old building and rows of pillows along the wall seating in the dining area. I'm weird, so I chose to sit in a chair at the table instead of a pillow lined bench. I just can't touch loose throw pillows in a public place not knowing who or how many people have been wollaring on them. That's just me. But it was cute. 

After we were seated, we took a look at the menu and made our choice. Or should I say choices. We ordered twice! We had intentionally decided to just share a few different appetizers as our meal. We ordered the Lemongrass chicken skewers, Fresh Summer Rolls with peanut sauce and Spring rolls.

While we waited, I decided to try a bubble tea. I have always wanted to try one. After the waitress explained the different flavors and some of the customer favorites, I decided on the Thai Tea flavor (I think). It was creamy and made me think of a caramel or butterscotch flavored milkshake. 
Bubble tea is a tea based drink with milk or fruit and chewy tapioca balls and jelly added. 

I loved this bubble tea. It was fun slurping the large chewy tapioca balls through the extra fat straw they supplied.

Once we finished our appetizers as a meal, we were still not satisfied (I really should have stopped here) so we decided to share the "Pork Banh Mi". 

This was on french bread with marinated pork, Japanese mayonnaise, cilantro and carrots. No complaints on this sandwich either as we devoured it in few quick bites. Yum.

What did we think about it?

Everything we ate was delicious and made with fresh ingredients. The meats were tender and the breads were so soft, it melted in our mouth. We thought the Spring rolls were the best we ever had. Even though everything was made as ordered, we did not have to wait a long time on our meal. Service was quick and the staff was very friendly and informative. 

They are adding some new items to the menu according to their facebook page
We will definitely visit again. We have even talked about just stopping in and getting a take out of just Spring rolls alone. Seriously, They were the best..
