To say that I am horrible at “updating” the current events in my life is truly an understatement. However, two little yet very odd fortune cookies prompted this post. Yup. They were so similar, they have held my intrigue and I thought I’d share them and the events that went with them!
On Thursday of last week a friend and I scored tickets to our very first NFL game — PreSeason or not, it was also our very first time experiencing Pro Football and the CenturyLink Stadium in Seattle, too! Did you know it is supposedly [one of] the loudest stadiums? I captured some video, but I’m too lazy to create/edit/upload – instead, how about some fun pictures that captured our moments at the Seahawks and Raiders game? It was such an experience!
We found relatively cheap parking in the International District and ate at one of Seattle’s top 11 restaurants in 2011 prior to the game —
I’ve never roamed around Chinatown here in Seattle yet, but I definitely want to one afternoon. I hear it is quite the experience. I figure if I survived Fashion District in Los Angeles, I can manage the International District here in SeaTown.
My fortune cookie:
After we woofed down the amazing Chinese food we crossed the street and I experienced my very first “Bubble Tea” — WTF?! I was in hysterics and made “ball” jokes the entire two block walk to the stadium. Mature — I know!
My friend ordered a Honey Dew something and the few sips I had were amazing. The straw was awkwardly large to accommodate the balls, and if I ever order one in the future she will definitely have to be with me to guide me through the process!
The first half of the game we were situated in stellar Season Holder Ticket seats with an entertaining bunch. The second half of the game we got in to the Club Level — One of the many benefits of being a woman! 😉
It was a fabulous game. 21 – 3 SEAHAWKS! We always do well PreSeason, don’t we? haha!
Here’s a shot of the stadium on our way back to the car… So pretty!!
The very next day my Mom and I ran errands together and ended up at P.F. Changs for lunch. Apparently I needed my Fried Rice fix last week because *ahem* I ordered another round…
I “cheated” and couldn’t resist the fresh crab ‘n veggie fried rice. It was a new item on the menu and for the record, it tasted like heaven. I have to give PF Changs major props. Our waitress explained to me that she can put any type of food “allergy” (in my case it’s ingredients I want to avoid) into their system and it will print out suggested menu items excluding those ingredients. Our waitress kindly printed Gluten & Soy Free items for me and I’m pumped because there’s tons of options and makes it easier for next time.
Anyway, on to the star of this post — here’s my second fortune cookie from that week:
Perhaps these fortune cookies were bought in bulk by the same supplier, or if they are true, maybe they’re a week late because I was recently spoiled by Suz and Misty! Not sure about the “freeing” and the “success” aspects. Today is Tuesday though, and it’s still early so we’ll see. It is also coincidently my [ex]boyfriend’s birthday. Although I don’t feel freed, and I’d hardly call our current situation a success! Awkward.
Have you ever been to a NFL game? Where?
Are you into Fortune Cookies? — I date & keep all of mine!
Have you heard of or tried Bubble Tea before? If so, what kind?
