I miss Reno. I will always miss Reno. It’s one of the coolest places I’ve ever lived. Living in Denver is certainly an adjustment; the traffic, the crowds, the pollution. We may or may not have circus elephants living above us in our temporary condo. But at least the bed is extremely uncomfortable, so I can hear it all!
All aside, the people have been friendly so far (okay, the people, not the drivers), and we’ve had a chance to see a few friends, so it was a good week.
Here’s my no-make-up selfie for awareness, I’m not sure of what. I don’t wear a lot of make-up anyway, but felt naked without my bright red lipstick (not available at my nearest Wal-Greens).
My husband is a fabulous restaurant-chooser. We went to PhoLee Monday and were treated to amazing Vietnamese food with very friendly service. I had only eaten pho (pronounced ‘fuh’) once, and apparently I was doing it wrong. Thanks to our kind server, it was an amazing experience.
My baby Lexus arrived via transport on Monday. I missed her!
Sadly, it is still too cold here to put the top down yet.
In Reno, it was warm enough.
I tried to find beauty in a smoggy sunset. Reno’s sunsets were beautiful.
We won’t mention the terrible restaurant I chose for this night’s meal.
I fired myself as restaurant chooser, and promoted my husband to Chief Restaurant Chooser of our household.
His next choice was Domo, an absolutely beautiful, authentic, and wonderful Japanese restaurant.
Every aspect of this restaurant was amazing, including the instruction card for parents who insist upon bringing their children to fine dining establishments.

Our first “course” consisted of 7 small dishes of perfectly cooked, seasoned, and prepared meats, vegetables, and noodles.
I had beef sukiyaki with a side of teriyaki. Delightful!
So the closest wine bar is easy walking distance from our temp living. Only it’s not really a wine bar.
It is a wine store with lots of great Central Coast Cali wines and Napa/Sonoma wines.
It’s not L’uva Bella in Reno, but we were spoiled there.
We couldn’t drink inside the store, so we bought a bottle and sat outside in the cold (yes, it is cold).
There was a cool cloud formation.
And I got to eat Asian food a third time this week at Miyama.
I do love my tepanyaki. You can see exactly what goes into your food.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to. How was your week?
