145.2...Barbie Bunco

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know about the Barbies.

Each of us has a Barbie that resembles ourselves….well…as close as you can get with a Barbie.

We’ve had a "Barbie Bunco” before where we have brought our Barbies but Tuesday nights’ “Barbie Bunco” (co-hosted by Alicia and Lisa) was different.

This time we had to dress like our Barbies.

Yep. Somehow I had to figure out how to look like this (my Barbie is on the right, Lisa’s is on the left):

Leave it to Lisa, to completely pull it off! Chair and all!

Lisa put together an ensemble for me that matched pretty darn well, if I do say so myself.

There actually was a contest on who looked most like their Barbie. Lisa and Alicia weren’t eligible as the hosts. The first place prize was obvious.

Silvana! She nailed it!

Second place went to Cathi.

Down to the bag an everything. Spot on!

Thank you SO much Lisa and Alicia for such a fun event! I love knowing that I have the perfect group of friends that can be completely silly together!

Wednesday was a big day at our house! It was the first day of school! Fifth grade for my son and third grade for my daughter. I had my standard breakfast and off to school we went!

After I got them settled and attended the first day ceremony, I went to get my hair done. It took awhile and I got hungry so I ate this fruit and nut blend from Starbucks.

I had a late lunch at Gami Sushi. I haven’t really liked this place in the past (not totally sure why) but it’s close to the kid’s school and I didn’t have a ton of time so that’s where I went.
Tuna, yellowtail and salmon:

El Diablo Crunch Roll:

Verdict: I really enjoyed it!! I guess everybody deserves a second chance, right?
We went out with our out of town friends again to dinner at Eddie V’s in La Jolla. We had some drinks and appetizers in their upstairs lounge before moving to our outdoor table for dinner. I had the Tartare of Pacific Ahi Tuna:

We had a great table for dinner outside overlooking the ocean. It was a beautiful evening!

For my entree I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass (steamed Hong Kong style with light soy broth):

The server had described it as light and “cuddly”. I had to order it. Lol. I’m not sure about the cuddly part but it was light and delicious! The table also shared Truffled Macaroni and Cheese and Truffle Fries. Both excellent!

Our guests were celebrating a belated anniversary (I guess we were too!) so the restaurant brought out two desserts for us:

Hot Chocolate Godiva Cake and Hot “Bananas Foster” Butter Cake. I ate around the bananas. :) The chocolate cake was very rich and chocolatey. The butter cake was my favorite if they could have left the bananas off.

Breakfast this morning:

After I took the kids to school, I went to Sculpt class. I will be sore tomorrow! This was followed by an appointment and lunch at Luna Grill. Greek Salad with Chicken Kabob:

This is the last night our friends are in town so we will be hanging with them again. :)

 If you could create a Barbie look alike, what would she be wearing?
