great friends and great food make great nights
I think that title kind of sums everything up.
I had a great night with some great friends and definitely enjoyed some great food.

I have kind of been slacking on the whole challenging myself and ED lately and I think I am using school and being busy as an excuse. Even though it may seem like an excuse I really am insanely busy with school.
My mom also was just out here, and let’s just say that added some extra stress.
I don’t want to get into too much detail because it’s not something I want to really share with the world, but my parents/family have not been the most supportive group in my recovery. My mom has her own issues she needs to work on and is just, not really able to be there for me. One word. Denial.
Thank God or whatever higher being you believe in that I have Matt and his parents. I really do not know what I would do without their support.

Or the support of my amazing friends. And the people who I didn’t think would be supportive are more than I could ever imagine, but also on the flip side, the ones I thought would be super supportive are no where to be found. It is amazing how others true colors come out in these situations. And maybe some just don’t know how to react or how to be supportive, and that’s ok. But I will just say I have been surprised, pleasantly and not so pleasantly in this whole experience so far.
But let’s stick with the pleasant shall we?
Because I had an amazing night and that’s what we shall talk about.

One of Matt’s co-workers had texted me one night and I decided to try and make dinner plans with her and her boyfriend. When I make plans it makes me stick to them, and I also just really wanted to hang out with them. They are some great people.
( I will apologize now for the lighting and quality of my pictures. The lighting in the restaurant was horrible.)
I had asked them if they wanted to grab sushi with Matt and I, as we were already trying to plan a night because Matt had bought a Groupon for a new place we haven’t been too yet. Ironically they had gotten the same Groupon!
Again Matt and I had been trying to plan a night out for awhile, but
I ED kept putting it off. So again, I knew if I made plans with others I would have to follow through with them.
It’s really good how much I love sushi though, because going out for it is just a bit easier because I know how much I am going to enjoy it. And boy, did I enjoy it.
We ordered so much food between the four of us! Seriously they just kept on bringing out plate after plate after plate. I didn’t even get pictures of everything, because it was so much through out the night. That is the one thing I like about sushi places, it typically does not come out all at once, but through out the meal.
But here are a few highlights of things I did get pictures of.
(Again, sorry for the lack of quality. If something doesn’t look appetizing…it really was)
I’m not going to lie, fried food still kind of freaks me out, but I challenged myself a bit and had a piece of asparagus. It was delish. There is a steak house we went to once and we got the tempura asparagus and I just loved it. The dipping sauce was amazing as well.

And then the sushi. Yum.

I love fresh fish and I love the rolls that come with extra on top.
♥ ♥ ♥
So I keep saying how much food we ordered.
Matt made the promise that whatever no one ate he would finish. He kept his word. The kid is a bottomless pit when it comes to sushi, but I truly believe sushi is one of those foods that doesn’t fill you up till the end. Then bam. You’re stuffed.

Caitlin and Ryan came over to our place after dinner where we enjoyed a few more beers and The Walking Dead.
There is nothing like good company and I had such a great night.
Again, great people make it totally worth it!

Do you have a favorite style of food that you like to eat when you go out? I seriously love sushi. I really love all Asian foods. We went to a Vietnamese restaurant with a few friends and it was so good. Sadly they didn’t have too many vegetarian options, but it was still really really good of what we got. I am also a huge Thai fan. Love it.
Do you have great friends you can rely on? Seriously don’t know what I would do without mine.
Love you guys!!!
