I’ve realized I’ve been M.I.A. What’s been going on? Absolutely nothing. NOTHING. Ever since the busy last few weeks I finally got a chance to just relax … and watch Gossip Girl. So here are some updates.
As of last week, my foot’s been doing better. I picked a 12 week workout to start on June 1st. Problem? We sold our bench on Sunday so now I have to find a new workout or revise the workout that is already set up. Blimey.
Work’s been going crazy. People not fully doing their part. People stepping on others to get to the top. People talking shiet even if it’s not about me. I can’t deal with it. It takes too much out of me. Stress-freaking-ful.
Sissy & BIL are moved back into the house for the time being. Travel nursing starts soon for them. Until then, I enjoy having Bruno around … and I guess those two other fools.
Brother let me keep Pluto for the time being. I’m suppose to give him back soon but you know … I kinda like his company. Sorry, B. I have no clue when I’ll be visiting to bring him back to you … because I don’t want to.
Tomorrow night is Wade Bowen with zee friends. Can’t wait to see them. It’s been two week!! Ahhhhh!
Happy Thursday, y’all!
I didn’t take many pictures of the weekend. It was pretty crazy. Always great seeing them peeps! Just wished more of them were in town and not having fun all around the world! It was a simple weekend. Much needed with all the crazy weekends though!
Drove to San Antonio after work for dinner at Kona with Shayna, Thuy, and Patricia. It was amazing catching up with them. Then watched Flight with Patricia, Shayna and Jakob.
Had lunch at McAlister’s with Shayna, Patricia, and Marisol. Talked about random things then went shopping with Shayna and met up with Matt and his cousin.
It was the first time Shayna and I got to spend one on one like that and I loved it. That girl is amazing and so easy to be with! So sad she’s going to be moving across the states. Hopefully whenever she’s a bit settled I can go visit her!
Early dinner was made by Shayna! Mmmm … love crockpot chicken. Always so fall off the bone delicious!
Went out for a late dinner at Cheddar’s (mashed potatoes and veggies are the best!) with Patricia, Travis, and Gary. Love those boys to death. Wish I got to see them more. They make me so happy and simple conversations … yes please. No craziness. Love it.
Had I-HOP with Patricia then tried going to the watch Furious 6 with her Marisol and her boyfriend, Josh. Took us hours until we got a time with seats. Oy vey. Amazing movie. I loved it all. Paul Walker … yes.
While waiting for the movie, Patricia and I went to Target and I saw these beauties! Individual packaged gummy bears. I get sick of eating all of it so this is perfect!
And everyone loves Froyo!
After the movie and chilling a little, we made dinner plans to go to Datapoint with them, Travis, and Patricia’s friend. Then we went to Espana for some drinks (Thuy met up with us!) and then Fast Eddie’s for pool! Thuy and I teamed up and won 5 games out of 5! Who would of thunk it! In the last two games, we let Josh be on our team. Funny moments. Simple times.
Woke up to helping Shayna pack up the U-Haul with her family. Then left for home.
Came home to reorganizing the baking cabinets. It’s all clean and neat now!!
And we’ve sold our work out bench. Sad day. Now I have to revise my workouts. Wahhh …
Sissy found this in her make up bag. Bruno ate her whole EOS chapstick! SO funny!
Pluto passed out. All the dogs apparently got fleas over the weekend. But glad to report they’re a-okay! Wish other people’s dogs were checked more often so they don’t infect all the others.
Time for more Gossip Girls then bed! Hope y’all are having an amazing Memorial Day Weekend!
I’m currently in San Antonio. Sucks since a lot of people are off on their summer vacation. But all is good. I only want to hang out with some of them anyway … just kidding.
Hope you all have a great weekend! I’ll try my hardest to get on but you know how it is.

I turned a year older yesterday. This birthday marks the best one thus far. Let’s let pictures and a few words capture my Birthday Weekend. I hope you guys had an amazing weekend like me! What amazing thing did you do?
I had this day off … wonderful. Perfect. Night plans were changed due to too many people at Cheddar’s. We ended up at Wild Wings Cafe then out for drinks afterward. Thanks to Mallory, Samantha, Amanda, Lauren, Maggie, John, Ronnie, Michael, Nate, Matt, Brett, and Robbie for coming out. I had a lot of fun with y’all and it definitely meant a lot to me since some of y’all were working all day or have finals and such.
Lemon Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting I made for my friends.
House got hot and some of the frosting melted off.
Definitely turning up the AC next time.
Some of the peoples from the night.
Thank you for making my night wonderful!

Bruno. Chilling in Gordon’s backyard.
I was stuck in a conference/workshop all day along with working 2 hours before to catch up on some things. Oy vey. Afterward the work team and the Canadian team that came down for the conference/workshop had a dinner thing at Dave and Buster’s. It was the longest birthday day ever.
Early bird. Already working hard and finally had time to check my phone.
Wrapped up office done by amazing coworker.
Birthday cupcake from Zuco.
Red Envelopes from Parents and June.
Dave and Buster’s Work Dinner … over $1100 … not counting drinks.
WTF. But the food was delicious.
Birthday Cake. Hope my wish comes true.
Some great coworkers helped me get super lots of tickets … over 3500.
Got a Das Boot and tiny shot glass as a birthday present.
The other tickets went to the other two coworkers.
They chose shot glasses and candy.
Seriously. It’s been amazing. Thank you to EVERYONE that has helped me celebrate. I’ve been giddy. Thank you thank you. All the phone calls, text messages, notifications on every social media … I am so thankful for all of you.
I have internet again. Hallelujah! My Feedly is over 400 posts. I’ve been making my way as much as I can but … you know how it goes.
My birthday is coming up this Monday so tomorrow night (Friday night) I’ll be celebrating with some peeps.
Doing anything fun this weekend?
Happy Friday! Stay Positive & Think Good Thoughts!

For the coworkers.
Sprinkles all around.
Friday, two of my coworkers, Endrina & Edie, (they call me “daughter”, I call them “mama”) took me out for lunch as a super early birthday celebration. Any May babies out there?!
Nit Noi Thai Restaurant & Cafe
1005 Dairy Ashford Rd
Houston, TX 77057
Ordered our array of curry and it came with free salad! Score. Too saucy though but still good. No picture … just picture a salad.
Crispy Spring Rolls [2 per order] | $2.95 each
Endrina ordered two orders of this, It tasted more like coleslaw without the mayonnaise in that little wrapped roll. Not a fan. If I was to go by myself with someone else, I would not recommend this.
Red Curry Hurry [with beef] | $9.95
I got it with Medium spice. This was the only curry out of all the others she asked what level of spiciness I wanted it. And it was the perfect level. I loved this one a lot. It had potatoes, pineapples, beef, basil, and green beans.
The only thing I could do without is the pineapples but it didn’t bother me. Mmm … most recommended.
Panaeng is Curry So Hurry [with chicken] | $9.95
Filled with chicken and green beans. The flavor from this one tasted like Mum’s curry so I automatically liked this a lot. They said it tasted a little bitter … which I don’t agree but all our palettes are different. I would recommend this to people for sure!
Musamun is Curry Too [with chicken and tofu] | $9.95
Filled with carrots, potatoes, tofu, chicken, and potatoes. My least favorite. Not sure why but it was sweeter and had a more peanut taste to it. I would only recommend this if they stopped serving the other two.
The good: As much rice as you’d like. I don’t think they charged us extra for that.
The bad: lack of ingredients in the curry. It was super saucy which is great for rice but if they made the price go up just a little and added more ingredients, it would be well worth it.
Edie bought me a present. Yay pens. I’m excited. I wish I had super important documents to sign … like a real business woman.
Internet is almost here. I am too excited to be able to connect with y’all whenever the heck I want!
Happy Tuesday, y’all!
Simple things make me happy. Some of these pictures you might have seen on my Instagram.
If not, that’s what this post is for.
Just a little inspiration.
Yogi Tea always starts my day out right.
Too in love with my nail color.
A coworker love these babies so much, she brought me two to try.
I’ve had the lime-a-ritas before … not a fan so I gave it away.
But the sraw-ber-ritas are so yum!!
These are more margaritas than beers.
And just FYI … I did not drink these at work.
Took Mum out for dinner Friday night. Olive Garden.
Yum. So much food. Did not finish. Yay leftovers.
Had another order of a little something something at Cloud Cafe.
I know it looks like any other one that I get but I promise you it’s not.
Not too sure what it is but shiet is good.
Happy Sunday y’all! Hope it’s been a good weekend!
