Sweet Bliss

I wish every work week was only 3 days long … how much happier would the world be? Given not having everyone off at the same time cuz that’s just crazy. Having all day yesterday AND today off to do NOTHING is amazing. I feel much more refreshed and I’ve gotten SO much done than I’ve had in a long time. Oy … I make life seem so sad sounding.

A year ago today I was in my hometown seeing my Mum’s side of the family after not being back for almost 15 years. It’s surreal how much I could remember from when I was younger. I miss Mum’s side of the family and talk about all the fun I had last summer.

Hong Kong … I will see you again soon. Maybe 2015? Wait for me!

Before the fireworks.

I hope you all had a great Fourth! I got to see Samantha, Mallory, John, and Mallory’s Family for a good hour to watch fireworks near our house. I took an Instagram Vid … but it wouldn’t let me post it on here. LAME. Should of stuck with Vine.

Afterward, Samantha and I got hotdogs from Sonic. Apparently hotdogs are the definition of ‘merica. At least that’s what Samantha says. On the way back to my house we got stuck in traffic. Made use of our time and took selfies. Like her scarf? It’s an infinity scarf that I got her for her for part of her early birthday present.

I came home catching up on Pretty Little Liars. Rocky came upstairs (which he never does at night time) and is now sleeping on my bed. Love it since this show is TOO suspenseful.

It feels like the weekend is over and tomorrow should be Monday but I love that it’s only going to be Saturday!

Such sweet bliss.

Have a great weekend y’all!

^my titles are getting worse.

I saw some statistics that blogging at this time of day is bad for your blog. Reason is because you get less hits. In my opinion, it doesn’t matter when you blog as long as you do it and not fifty thousand times in one day.

I still don’t understand how people do it. Some post THREE times a day and it’s filled with information. It makes sense for those that blog full time or stay a homes but if you have a full time job, I really don’t understand.

Then there’s those people that have a SINGLE post that might as well be novels. Once in a while, it’s okay, but every time you post? Information overload. My brain is dead after work ends so processing that much info from a single post … it just doesn’t work out that well.

With that being said, if you haven’t noticed, Google Reader is no more. It’s a sad day for many of us but Feedly has been working brilliantly for me. Not much complaints. I work with what I have. So if you still need a new platform, give Feedly a try!

This week, although short, has been quite long. I’ve gotten so much done (work and personal) and I’m so proud of myself.

Happy Tuesday y’all!

Planners, Shayna, & Froyo

Happy month of July my Doodies!

I need help with my post titles. If anyone is holding classes, sign me up!

Can you believe half the year is already over?! Eeeeeeep! With that being said, new year resolutions aren’t going well as planned. Time to get back on track.

I’ve had my July workout schedule planned and have backups in case I can’t follow through with a longer workout. 21 days is the time it usually takes for your brain to get use to routine. Let’s get it dowwwwwn.

To help me with that, I’ve been searching for a new planner. I’m late but hopefully it’ll be okay. Researching has been done but it’s still up in the air. Should I drop down a billion bucks on an Erin Calderon Planner or a half a billion bucks on a Planner Pad? I could always go on Etsy and print off my own and put it into a small binder … but I like color and that would result me into buying a color printer. Then there’s the Uncalendar and the momAgenda. *sigh* Choices. Choices. My brain is going crazy.

I’ve been using my Google Calendar but I miss having the pages in my hand. I want to be able to touch it. Have more room to write random crap in. The organizer in me wants to see everything laid out in front of me. Sometimes I wish I was still in school so that I can have a busy looking planner. Weirdo alert. I know. Maybe I will go back to school one day. Hmm …

I got to see Shayna tonight at The Yogurt Spot. She was visiting her husband in Florida and was making her way back home in Austin and got to stop by my place so we could catch up. Great surprise and end of a long work day. Thank you overtime!

Two more days of work until my four day weekend. Bring it!

I hope you guys had a great Monday!

Family Weekend

Much needed, relaxing weekend. I did nothing but hang out with family which sometimes is needed. We went shopping at the outlet where I only bought a top from The Loft for only $7! And we watched Pitch Perfect and Safe Haven. For me the billionth time but they’re both such good movies. *sigh*

I’ve been busy going through the big stack of magazines that’s been sitting on the corner of my desk for months. Whenever I want to save a recipe or article, I try to see if I can find it online, else I’ll take a picture of it and whatnot to keep … forever … until the internet dies. Or something. Thank you, Evernote.

Sissy got into a car accident yesterday and totaled her car. From the story she told me, it’s a miracle she walked away without a scratch. She pretty much got t-boned and she flipped and slid upside down all the way down the street. M-I-R-A-C-L-E. Glad she’s okay. That’s all that matters.

If she was in Houston right now, she would love eating the few dark chocolate covered graham crackers I made. YUM. Wish I had better brand of graham crackers and dark chocolate though. They definitely make a big difference.

Back to my relaxing rest of the weekend. Then I’ll have 3 days of work and a 4 day weekend to follow. Cannot wait! Yippee!

TGIF

Seriously.

It’s been a long week.

On Wednesday I went to a painting class with Mallory and Samantha. I’m not a fan of my artwork this time around so … no pictures. Maybe one day. Maybe I’ll fix it up first or something. We’ll see.

It’s time to just relax and do NOTHING. *sigh*

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Weekend of Lovelies

So … I’ve been feeling bleugh lately … hence the no blogging. Welps. But I have been keeping up with other people’s blog the best I can. Has to mean something, right?

On Friday I went and gave blood with Mallory. Always love hanging out with this chica and doing something for others makes it that much better.

Went and saw Sarah, my cousin, dance as a professional for the first time. This particular one was called Bosk which was based on a true story. It had bunnies and doers and alligators and such. Of course they were dressed up and not the actual kind. It was kind of the theatrical weird dance but I enjoyed it.

Saturday I figured out how many magazines I have to go through. Oy vey. Not even 1/4th done.

I promised a little girl, Rose’s daughter, Karen, I was going to teach her how to bake cupcakes. I got a free bagel sandwich out of it. YUM! Looks gross but it was so delicious. Bagel Cafe … now that I know you, you’re never leaving me!

Karen gave me this. So smart making a heart out of the pipe cleaner!

Finished product. We omitted the sour cream so the frosting wasn’t as creamy … but it made it taste more like dark chocolate. Some people liked it like that. Guess to all their own. Or whatever the saying is. I took the majority to Oslvado’s birthday celebration. Win. Win.

We ate at Chili’s and partied at a club afterward. This is the only picture I liked of myself out of all the ones I had on my phone. Hopefully Ann doesn’t mind her being on the blog. Whooooops.

Much Needed Thursday Night

It’s been a very stressful couple of weeks. But getting this from Bossman made it a little better. And the people around me … thank you listening.

Samantha came and picked me up and we met up with Mallory at:

Samantha’s a teacher so she picked one that had an apple so she can put pens/pencils in. Mallory chose a skull. She LOVES skulls! I chose a t-shirt. Inside I can fill it with my makeup brushes. I love the way they all came out and I hope we can go again! I love doing stuff like this!

Afterward we walked over to Time Square to play bowling. Free game and pizza!! Yay!! We bought everything else. My stomach now feels bleugh from all the greasy foods.

Weekend is here and I wouldn’t want it to start any other way. I had so much fun. Love them so much! Happy Friday tomorrow guys! We made it!
