I Had the most fun last night! Paulie and I decided to head to Evanston to his favorite, Kansaku.
We ordered the:
Sweet vinegar marinated shrimp and avocado over spicy crab cucumber roll with shiso pesto sauce.
Lobster tempura over lobster-mix and cucumber roll served with creamy sauce and eel sauce.
Fresh water eel on top of shrimp tempura avocado and cucumber roll with spicy mayo and eel sauce.
And of course I ordered some Maki Rolls to go for lunch the following day:
King Kong (J)
Shrimp tempura, cream cheese, asparagus and avocado roll topped with black topiko and tempura crump, served with wasabe mayo and eel sauce.
Crab over shrimp tempura and cucumber roll with tempura crumb with eel sauce.
I enjoyed our conversation last night and we are getting thing situated for the Washington D.C. trip this weekend. Paul is nervous about this I can tell but I know it’s my job as his best friend and girlfriend to be there for him and make sure he feels secure and confident going into this medical procedure. Paul had issues with his past girlfriends not being there for him in desperate times of need and I vow to never do that because of how badly it had affected him in the past. Also, Paul has been there for me more than I would have ever thought he would (or imagined he would) and it’s time for me to help him by being there for him and treating him with the utmost respect that he deserves. I’ve never had the opportunity to have man in my life the truly puts my needs before his own and I can’t believe how much God has blessed me with opportunity to come in contact with him. I also find it to be super ironic that he became a match for this man in need of a marrow donation because of my dad’s tournament (where he joined the bone marrow registry last year). It’s as if things were truly meant to be. We spoke about the future over dinner and I have realized that being with him as made me more secure in myself than I have ever felt because he accepts me for who I am and I’m able to be 100% myself around him.
After dinner Paul dropped me home and my sis and I had a heart to heart conversation in the kitchen with my mom and dad. Sophia and I have become so close within the last 3 months and I feel like it’s because tragic events have brought us closer together. I’m happy that I’m starting to see some positivity in the family tragedy that I underwent, like becoming inseparable with my sister again. It reminds me that sometimes things fall apart so better things can come together.
This past weekend my girlfriends, Paul and I all headed out for Mat’s birthday…
