Today we are having brunch at Firefly on Paradise and Flamingo, which features Tapas', mini appetizers that come together to form a meal! I ordered the Filet Minion mini sliders, which sounded good! Me and burgers... I swear its my Achilles heal!

It seems that life here in Vegas has began to quiet down a bit. It has been almost 6 months now, come the end of January, and looking back, it feels like we just got here, and also, like we’ve been here all our lives! One of the most prominent new developments in our lives, which may be the biggest downfall, is the ability to eat anything! Though many skeptics may disagree, I am pretty open to trying anything. I adore sushi, Mexican is now a favorite of mine, and Indian is a new curious adventure to be sought out! Food is everywhere here! Anything you can possibly wish to try or want, can be found in this city. I think that is why I love it here so much! I really have not found any restaurants that I did not enjoy. My favorites include In and Out, Jack in the Box, Osaka’s Japanese Steak House, Shobu, Roberto’s, Cardenas, and Sweet Tomato! I guess the only place I have found to have horrible food is Mo Mo Sushi, which was just that… Horrible..

In other news, I am being promoted at work, so I have started working day shifts to train for it. That means I wake up at 5am, am at work at 630am, and off work at 230ish. This is a major change in my life, so it has been hard to adjust! But, I am hoping that within a few weeks, I will be moved to a smaller store that does not open until 9ish, so I may have a few extra hours of sleep!

Also, it is now winter in Vegas, which means a light jacket, and some wind. From what I hear though, this has been a mild winter, which is perfectly fine for Carrie and me! Remembering winter’s past, I can hardly even imagine living in that type of environment again. I try to explain that to those who live here, but it sometimes falls on deaf ears. I guess they just need to experience that for themselves!
