A Day of Indulging

As soon as we walked into McDonald's, the smell of hot fries & hashbrowns got me excited. Yes - food excites me & the fact that it smelled like home!

We love spending our weekends exploring Pattaya City, as there are so many hidden restaurants and shops to be found. However, Saturday morning we began with a taste of home. Before I left home, my grandma kept telling me that I could always run to the closest McDonald’s if I ever became homesick. So coffee & breakfast at McDonald’s Saturday morning definitely got our day going and did in fact make me feel at home 🙂 Call me crazy, but I love McDonald’s coffee. It tasted perfect with my blueberry muffin. A quick shout out to my mom – Happy Birthday! Since I was not there to indulge in birthday cake, this muffin was a nice substitute 🙂

Moving on with our day, I finally got up the courage to confront a random “dressed to dish” person! I loved her dress and while I meant to get a better shot of her outfit, her adorable daughter stole the show.

She was so cute!

So by the time Saturday afternoon rolled around, I was in need of a quick pick-me-up and ordered some coffee. Guess what came complimentary with my coffee!? CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES. I just can’t seem to take a break from my chocolate phase.

Free truffles? I'll take it.

Okay fine I confess. I did decide to order my coffee from a cafe called Chocalatier. It was my own fault. But seriously I can’t pass a sign that says “Buy one drink, get free truffles”.

Row after row of truffles!

Yep I knew well in advance that eating truffles would be inevitable if I ordered coffee. Oops! In my defense, the truffle did say ‘Bite Me’ 🙂

Today we picked up a few new home accessories including accent pillows and place mats to give our apt some extra flare. Not to mention, a more cozy appeal. And then fast forward and we were ready for dinner. During the week we usually cook in each night, so Friday & Saturday are usually our days we choose to dine out. So after lots of walking, we enjoyed a tasty Italian dinner at a restaurant just down the street. Notice I said ‘lots of walking’. That justifies my decision to devour half a pizza to myself. Take note of Stephen’s pasta portion…then compare with my Smoked Salmon & Mozzarella Pizza. I may have a slightly bigger portion 😉

Ready to take on my pizza….here goes slice number 1!

Annnnd half a pizza later, I’m stuffed.

 

Yes that just happened.

After dinner we saw the movie ‘Red Riding Hood’. It definitely kept my attention, with a much different take on the story! As for now, I’m off to make a healthy dinner after yesterday’s indulgences.

Our thoughts & prayers go out to those affected by the earthquake in Japan. Thankfully Thailand was not affected from the aftermath of it all.
