A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes …

… but I don’t think this heart was meant for this wish because I haven’t thought about it in years. I woke up to a crazy dream yesterday. I’ll try my best to remember it. These are my real life friends that showed up in my dream … and my mum. HA. But I only remember who the boy truly is which is so surprisingly weird to me.

Alpha = the boy
Beta = girlfriend of mine and sister of Alpha who in real life aren’t siblings
Charlie = other girlfriend of mine

So what happened was Alpha took me to an orchestra rehearsal and we were both on our laptops. He had to practice his solo with the orchestra so he pulls out his violin and started playing and la la la. Rehearsal was over. While he was packing up, he told Charlie that he liked me and wanted to tell me but was afraid. We all decide to go out for lunch at a restaurant underground. He tells Beta, Charlie, and I to go on ahead and get a table while he puts my laptop along with his own in his car.

Beta walks a few steps ahead of us and Charlie tells me Alpha likes me … a lot. And tells me I need to tell him the feeling is mutual. Upon walking, my mum gets off for lunch and bumps into us and gives us the 3rd degree asking us why we are downtown and the such. We start running away from her ending up underground and Beta twists her ankle and falls to the ground. As I help her out, she tells me I need to tell her brother how I feel or else, let him go.

Funny thing was, all I could remember was freaking out thinking I lost my laptop. Next thing I knew, I saw Alpha coming towards us and I wake up with my heart racing. Wondering what just happened. And telling myself … the laptop is in his car, dumbass.

I wonder how it was going to end and what it all means. *sigh* This makes my life seem so boring.

Not sure if y’all are aware of this whole Asian Flush being a red flag – no pun intended – for cancer risk. Check out the article. Luckily I don’t get the Asian flush when I drink … but that doesn’t mean I won’t have a cancer risk. Just a little FYI for y’all.

Talk to y’all soon!

Stay Positive & Think Good Thoughts.

Getting Fatter

I’ve been M.I.A. and I’m not sorry. Family came and I’d rather spend it with them since I never see them. You’ll be able to see what we did down below which is mostly eating. Bah …

TUESDAY:

Lunch with contractor company at the Omni Hotel. YUM!

Happy hour after work with Mallory, Stephen, Samantha and a nice reunion with Judith. It’s been forever but it was nice seeing her.

WEDNESDAY:

OOIAJ for breakfast can never go wrong.

IMG_20130612_140200

At work. Our playground. Taking a break from working on our presentation that will be on this upcoming Wednesday. Eeks.

THURSDAY:

PhotoGrid_1371439031544

Mary Kay party with Mallory, Judith, Maggie, Mallory’s sister and mum, and her friend from soccer. I bought a few things that ended up being in the 80s. Whoops. Hopefully it’s worth it. Never thought I’d feel like a grownup until I bought expensive crap.

The question asked what kind of eyes I have … and Asian was a choice. Too funny. And might be a little racist …

FRIDAY:

Anvil Bar & Refuge
1424 Westheimer Rd.
Houston, TX 77006
(713) 523-1622
www.anvilhouston.com

Went with brother and Tammy, and met up with Jenny and her new beau.

Boilermaker [1/2 pint of beer & paired spirit] | $8

It wasn’t bad. But I wouldn’t get this again.

Campari Popcorn | $5

It’s popped to order and Jenny and I were very excited for this … but when we ate a bite we wanted to throw up. Campari is apparently a type of liquor and once you it it you feel your taste buds turn bitter. Bleugh! Brother threw some limes on there and it helped.

Pork Belly Taco, Pickles, Ranch Dressing Cole Slaw | $8

Holy yum … get this whenever you land in anvil. So good. I wish there was more than 3 mini tacos on the plate though.

This place is unique with the way they make their drinks. So many different kinds. I really liked the Montebello (?) Tammy got … I would definitely get that instead next time!

88 Boiling Crawfish & Seafood
1910 Wilcrest Dr.
Houston, TX 77042
(713) 789-8288

Boudin, fries, crabs, crawfish, oysters … and so much more. It’s like Boiling Crab but better. Next time I’m getting two pounds of crawfish and boudin. Oh my boudin. They have happy hour in where their crawfish is a dollar off a pound. So amazing. I hope not many people find out about it because I love that it wasn’t packed!

After this we watched The Internship. Such a good funny movie. Go watch it if you haven’t.

SATURDAY:

IMG_20130615_205729

Went shopping at the outlet for forever and spent over $80 … whoops.

Came home and had Korean BBQ as celebration for Father’s Day. Mmm …           

IMG_20130615_234504

Oreo Cake … too good.

IMG_20130616_003758

Played The Game of Things with brother, Tammy, and Jenny and her beau came over. Too much laughter. Love this game. We stayed up til 2am playing. We are ridiculous.

SUNDAY:

Kublai Khan
20940 Katy Freeway
Katy, TX 77449
(281) 398-3658
www.kublaikhankaty.com

This place is better than Genghis Grill … in they give you more noodles/rice than GG. Won my heart. I want to go back already.

Brother, Tammy, and Jenny went back to Dallas along with Pluto and Krypto. Now I’m all alone.

Sad life. But love the time I had with them. We ate so much but now that everyone’s gone I’m able to stop eating out as much.

Whoo … long post. Good night.

Full House Thursday

IMG_20130606_063807

Every day starts fairly the same. A cup of Yogi tea for a daily inspirational quote. Ran out of Kombucha … who wants to restock my stash?

IMG_20130606_094516

Working hard … obviously. But seriously … work was crazy today. Our main water pipe burst so we had to walk to a different building to pee. Also ate lunch with BossMan and another coworker. Was kind of weird at first but it got a little better.

Happy Hour with Mallory at:

G Bar
15455 Memorial Drive
Houston, TX 77079
(281) 497-2725

They gave out free ravioli! I got a Guinness (of course) and she got margarita on ice. And the bartender was SUPER nice!

Loved the way the place is set up! Like a living room with a bar! With a fireplace and everything!

The only thing weird was the customers. This one girl seem to look like she was working the place … if you know what I mean.

We moved our Happy Hour to:

Cafe Benedicte
15455 Memorial Drive
Houston, TX 77079
(281) 558-6607
www.cafebenedicte.com

and Samantha met up with us.

Bread & Butter | free

Not too sure what was in the butter but my gosh … too good. Garlic perhaps? Must try. Just don’t overdose on it.
The bread itself was hard on the outside and super soft on the inside. YUM.

Hurricanes

Not a fan. Too fruity for me so Samantha took the rest.

Colorado Bulldog

Ordered this instead which is like a White Russian mixed with root beer? Too strong.
Was not a big fan of it either. But liked it better than the Hurricanes.

Lobster Bisque | cup $4.75

Yum. Didn’t care for the lobster pieces inside but the soup. MY GOSH.
Mallory ordered two soups but they were no match for this delicious one.

Gyro [with romaine, tomatoes, and Tzatziki Sauce in Greek pita bread, slow roasted lamb, house fries] | Half $7.95

I didn’t really like the pita bread. So I ate the inside only.
The fries were yummmmmmmm! They’re potatoes. Come on! Of course they’re yum.

I know I’m making it sound like I didn’t like this place but it really wasn’t at all bad. Very expensive if you look at the menu and get the whole meal but I would come here again and try something.

IMG_20130606_212347

Came home to a full house of dogs and people. Brother and Tammy are home for about a week and brought Krypto along. It’s nice to have them here but it would of been better if it wasn’t due to these circumstances. My cousins’ grandma passed away last week and we have a funeral to go to this Saturday.

This picture is of all the dogs waiting patiently for my brother to drop any of the food he’s eating. Too cute.

Watching the Spurs vs Heat game. Go Spurs Go!

And then watching the Redbox movies we rented! Yay!!

Hope y’all had a great Thursday!

Simple Things

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.

IMG_20130502_085025

Just a little inspiration.
Yogi Tea always starts my day out right.
Too in love with my nail color.

20130502_074726

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.

IMG_20130503_220456

Took Mum out for dinner Friday night. Olive Garden.
Yum. So much food. Did not finish. Yay leftovers.

IMG_20130504_145757

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!

Sleep Is The Best Meditation.

Said by the Dali Lama. Sadly, I haven’t been able to sleep in the last 3 days. It didn’t help having 9 hours of class the past two days and a bajillion meetings today. I had no idea why so I chucked it to everything going on. That my mind is too busy and it wouldn’t let me sleep. But now, I know the real reason …

Okay, whoever you are, stop dreaming about me so I can sleep! But I mean, I guess that’s sweet. Whatever legend you are, I’ll take it since I do need a boyfriend. *coughcough*

My contractor company had a social tonight at The Next Door and I took Mallory with me. Free food and a chauffer so she wasn’t complaining.

Actually, we were complaining. Took a while to get our White Sangria and Red Wine which is what we usually get when we go to happy hour here with our friends.

The food took forever to come out as well but it was pretty much worth it. Beef kabobs, chicken kabobs, quesadillas, spinach quesadillas, fruit and cheese kabob, pita bread and hummus, crab cakes, etc. Mmm … too good. Or maybe because we were just so hungry.

IMG_20130424_182214

Mallory and I sent a photo of us to Samantha. Look at that halo around our heads. So bright. We are good girls.

The above photo is what she sent back with the words,

Guys look a fun pictures of us all hanging out!

She is so silly. And it was Instagram worthy.

Tomorrow is my Friday. I cannot contain my joy. It’s been a tough week. Oy vey.

Alcohol In A Pouch?!

I am so close to being caught up with all my posts. I have one more review and I would have been caught up. Cannot wait for that feeling.

Anyway, have you ever seen this before?!

Had this a couple weeks ago … It’s Daily’s: Strawberry Daiquiri! Mmm … for $1 something, it’s worth it … if you’re lazy like me. I thought it was very strong … too strong to the fact I couldn’t take the bottom of the pouch. They need more strawberry flavor or maybe this was geared to hardcore alcoholics … I’m not one. I rarely drink.

I was surprised my mum said I was able to get one for myself while her and June shared the Daily’s: Pomegranate Margarita. I didn’t like it. It tasted like medicine. The only upside was that it wasn’t as strong as the Strawberry Daiquiri.

Oh and a few minutes ago my mum washed some strawberries and demanded I eat some, and eat some I did since I did need some fruit in me and wanted some dessert. I paired it up with some fluffy marshmallow. Don’t worry I didn’t overdose. I couldn’t find the Nutella. Wahh! But fluffy marshmallow was a good substitute. I don’t know why I don’t like marshmallows but am okay with fluffy marshmallows. Hmm …

Have you ever had alcohol in a pouch? Did you like it?

Also, I’m wanting to get new running shoes already. Ones that fit me. Do you have a preference? I need cheap but long lasting, good for your shoes.
