Dinner and Dessert

I have been applying to plenty of jobs this week. My job-search has been on halt since I got a temporary job working about 12-20 hours a week at a bra boutique. However, the money isn't cutting it and I'm not guaranteed a permanent position so my search has continued! It must be better in April since I have two interviews tomorrow! I prefer one job over the other one but decided that I should go to both interviews.

I am also hoping to hear back from a couple of positions soon.

Cross your fingers for me loves!

Look at this hilarious picture that Richard took of me:
I think I was too giddy to eat my favorite salad EVA! I look kinda dead without lipstick.

Richard and I met up for a late lunch/early dinner at Nordstrom.

We shared a Mango Ceylon tea. I have no idea what Ceylon is and I am skeptical of the nutrition stats. It claims that there aren't any calories but it's made with different fruits and herbs. I thought fruits and herbs had some calories? Does it magically disappear once it's in tea? Anyone please enlighten me.
 Nicoise salad with Salmon. Best. Salad. Ever. If I could eat this everyday, I would.
 Richard got the Cilantro-Lime Chicken Salad. It's usually with shrimp but this Nordies didn't have shrimp.
We also had an unpictured plate of bread and butter. It was stale and only had ends. Some Nordstroms are fancier than others like the one in downtown.

I know Nordstrom is a fancy department store but Richard and I LOVE Nordstrom bistro cafes. I think we had Valentine's Day lunch at the one downtown. The one downtown has fancy drinks, pomme frites with kalamata aioli and gourmet dishes like Shrimp and Asaparagus Risotto and Braised Short Ribs and the view of the city.

I'll have to say it's one of my favorite restaurants EVA.

For dessert we had La Baguette. It's a bit expensive but it's everything that I love. They have those skinny baguette sandwiches and Cafe Au Laits. I die.
We shared a Raspberry Creme Brulee but there was nothing Brulee about it. However, there was a small nugget of custard in the middle. Copenhagen has the best Raspberry mousse in my opinion.
 I had to get a cinnamon twist.
 Then had a petite Cafe Au Lait which was delicious and went with all my pastries and dessert.
I realized a little bit of sweet at the end of my meal is satiating. Sometimes I would feel hungry after a meal and decide to eat seconds but lately I would eat a mini Snickers after and I wouldn't crave anything after.

I think I'll try eating fruit right after dinner.

Have you girlies eaten at Nordstrom's before?
