we celebrated a little early, his birthday is actually on tuesday, but he has midterms and stuff all week so i didnt want to interrupt studying time. lol he gets all serious and tunes the world out when he studies, so boring! lol i study with the tv on, while i surf blogger and talk on the phone. haha im so unproductive :(
my face before dinner:
my face after dinner:face:

- Lancome Ageless Mineral loose powder in natural beige
- Fl!rt blush in too dolly
- MAC painterly paint pot (all over eyelid)
- MAC blackground paint pot (in crease)
- MAC print (in crease)
- MAC starts & rockets (on lid)
- Cover Girl champagne (inner lid & inner corner)
- Ulta automatic liner in black
- Revlon falsies (thanks ying!)
- Victoria Secret soothing lip balm (my faaaave!)
- Fl!rt lipstick in pink dream
- MAC lipglass in flourabundance
heres what i wore:
- shoes: Steve Maddens
but, the it started to rain outside, and its been sorta chilly here so i decided to dress warmer lol. i have the worst tolerance for the cold, and i live in alaska; its a horrible combination. so, i ended up wearing this.
- pants: Forever 21, they're actually like "work" pants, but made out of this thick legging material.. so they look like leggings, but are totally thicker and warm. they have pockets, and a zipper, but the dress hid them :)
- cardigan: 5|48 (from Saks) i looooove long cardigans :)
this entire outfit made me realize how much bigger i have gotten with the pregnancy and that im still getting bigger. lol i bought this dress last october but it didnt fit me. it literally would slide right off, so tonight was actually my first time wearing it. it fit wonderfully, i even found it to be a bit snug. i bought the pants a month ago and they didnt fit either; i put them on today and they fit perfectly. im glad i can finally put these items to use, but its totally depressing at the same time.
to make things worse when we got home and i tried to take the dress off i couldnt! i couldnt slip it down or up over my head. my boyfriend kept telling me he would have to cut me out of it.. i almost died... until i realized that he didnt pull the zipper down all the way. thats why i couldnt get out of the dress.. haha it was seriously a heart breaking moment for me!
i know im not fat, and im not trying to fish for any compliments or shit like that, but with anyone and any time their body is making such dramatic changes in such a small frame of time theres just a lot of getting use to needed. its really hard to wake up and notice yourself a little bigger each day, or that your clothes dont fit anymore. especially with my hormones raging, its a roller coaster ride. lol but i do love looking down and seeing my baby bump. it always makes my heart melt to think that in 4 more months my lil man will be here and he's going to be amazing!
but, anyways! we went out to dinner and it was really nice, we had a great time.
here are some photos & restaurant review. enjoy:)
420 L St
Anchorage, AK 99501-5901
what we ordered (sorry there arent a whole lotta food porn pictures. i promise next time we are there i will take some!):
- calamari with plum sauce (appetizer) $12.00
this was ok, it was lightly breaded, deep fried calamari and red peppers with a five spice seasoning. it had a small kick to it, but not "spicy" in my book. lol boyfriend thought it was a lil spicy though. it was served with a plum sauce, which i could do without.. i dont really like sweet dipping sauces, i would prefer an aeoli sauce any day. the calamari sat on top of a green salad. there was like sprouts, arugula, spinach.. this i could do without either, i dont like any of that shit. hahaha
- house salad with ranch dressing (appetizer) $6.50
salad was super yummy. had just enough ranch to nicely coat all the veggies. they made the salad with romain lettuce ( i prefer iceburg). the croutons were super good too! and the red onions and tomatoes were chopped really small, which made them easier to eat. everything was topped with grated parmesan.
- sweet potatoe fries (side) $6.00
soooooooo good. it came with this weird bbq sauce and mustard sauce sides, which boyfriend and i skipped on and asked for ranch instead, lol. but i love sweet potatoe fries, you seriously cannot go wrong :)
- whiskey pepper cracked steak $33.00 (my dinner)
2 medallions of steak served on top of mashed red potatoes, served with a side of battered and deep fried onion strings and mixed veggies (zucchini, onions) with a jack daniels peppercorn sauce. this was on their daily specials menu, so i dont know if its available all the time, but ommmmg sooooooooooo seriously delicious! i can never eat too much steak at dinner and this was a perfect portion size for me. the veggies and the onion strings were good, but like seriously.. if a restaurant fucked that up.. then i would have to kill the chef myself. haha totally loved it!
- center cut new york strip $39.00 (boyfriends dinner)
12oz new york strip served with au ju, mashed red potatoes and battered deep fried onion strings. this steak was seriously HUGE. like i think an 8 oz steak is already too much, but 12 oz .. it just looks like a beast to me. lol but the boyfriend really enjoyed his meal :)
- strawberry lemonade $4.00 (bottom less)
we each got one, and they were really good. some places just cant do a strawberry lemonade justice. haha but i was looking at the drinks menu and was totally wishing i could get a pomegranate cosmo, or a freaking mojito! ahhhhhhh sometimes pregnancy makes me so sad. haha
also, their water was really good. haha i am completely anal when it comes to drinking water at a restaurant, most of the time the water just tastes like shit. i rarely ever drink water in any public place, haha im like scared shitless of public water fountains. my boyfriend swears that all water tastes the same, and i know for a fucken fact that they dont! some places just have better water than others, and i make sure to make mental notes of where not to drink water. lol
- key lime pie $0.00 (on the house since it was my boyfriends birthday)
muahhaha so cute! i love him
also, best part about eating here is that you can buy gift cards for it at the Costco's in anchorage (thats what we did, haha we're on a budget!) but we got two $50.00 gift cards for $79.99 at Costco, yay for discounts! i fucking love costco dude, they have the best shit there. we also buy our movie tickets there. definitely check out costco for great savings :D our local costco also sells handbags: burberry, coach, and prada are what i have seen before. they currently have Seven For All Mankind jeans on there (the ones with the A pockets) for $99.99.
