This weekend my bf decided to surprise me with a mini staycation. What I love about a staycation is being able to make a mess in your hotel room and not having to clean up after yourself. I also love being able to order room service and eating it in bed. I'd never eat in my bed, so it's nice being able to do that without worries. Heehee.
A staycation is such a nice way to feel like you're on vacation when you have a small budget or don't have the time to get away.

SPG, me and the significant others met up for lunch at Hog Island Oysters. I been here a couple of times and never failed to order their grilled cheese, although they are very famous for their oysters. I decided to opt out on the oysters since my last experience was a terrible one!
After lunch my friend Karen met us up and we all headed toward downtown to do a little vintage shopping. It was an unfruitful trip, as the vintage store we wanted to go to was closed during the weekend.

Brunch at the Rotunda in Neiman Marcus.
The glass dome at the Rotunda is so beautiful. Even though I have been here a number of times, the beautiful ambiance and decor never cease to amaze me.
Honestly, I come to the Rotunda mainly for the ambiance! But I do always look forward to their complimentary pop-over with strawberry butter and chicken consomme. I'd be happy if my meal consisted of just that!
Their menu changes every so often and I'm really happy with the current change because their food was quite excellent this time. I ordered their roasted pepper tomato crab bisque as a starter. It was one of the most delicious soups I have ever had and they didn't skimp on the crab either. For the main entree, I got the hamachi salad and the flavors were so light and citrus-y (it was seriously so yummy!). My bf got the lobster club sandwich and the portion was huge. He had some leftovers to take home and I'd be more than happy to finish it for him later.

I had such a fun and eventful weekend, but now I am super tired and ready for bedtime! Have a good night everyone and hope you had a great weekend as well.
