Birthday Palooza

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?

Friday aka Party Time:

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.

Monday aka Birth Day:

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.

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.

Happy Tuesday!

Pictorama

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!

[2013] 004/365: Sweets Galore

IMG_20130213_200820

Oh boy. Today was a very sweet day.

First we got our Girl Scout Cookies. 2 boxes of Thin Mints. 2 boxes of Shortbread. I’m thinking they will go well with baking. But we shall see.

Went out to lunch with some coworkers for a birthday. Thai House on Eldridge if you’re ever in Houston. So YUM! Then we had the cake I baked last night for a coworker’s birthday got gobbled up. Chocolate on top of chocolate.

A sweet surprise landed in our mailbox. Body Central. Sissy and I shop all the time online and this is just another one of our goodies. Fun Funs!

Do you shop online? It’s starting to be a problem for me. Time to cut myself off!

Valentine’s Day tomorrow! What are your plans?! I have a date … with one of my good friends, Samantha! We are going to have a girl’s night. Can’t wait for simple relaxation. Yippee!

Last Week … Weekend Festivities

Tuesday:

I love my job. Why? Because I have TWO companies as of right now and one of them threw an amazing social at Dave and Busters! Can’t wait for the next social!

Friday:

Day off!

Went to brunch with the sissy then she went off to her mani/pedi and I went home and baked two type of things for the dinner party. It was held at The Powerpuff Clubhouse … aka Samantha’s place.

Bubbles, John, and Blossom.

We hung out the rest of the night and I had a lot of fun just being silly with them. It was Mal and I’s first real party ever since being out of high school. Makes me realize just how grown up we are.

Saturday:

I went to Whole Foods with Mum and June. It’s SO SO SO close to home now. I’m in love … with a store. Don’t judge.

20130202_102939

I found these pretty awesome cute pebbled potatoes. They were $4.99 so I sadly had to put them down.

20130202_105030

I picked these babies up instead. $2.99 for way more. I used some to make dinner!

IMG_20130202_195553

Picked up some Shrimp & Chicken Jambalaya. And used the potatoes and made a Sausage, Potato, Veggie Bake. It was a win.

IMG_20130202_203125

I even got dessert from Whole Foods for the fams.

Sunday:

I went to Madison’s house (Mallory’s sister) and watched the Super Bowl. I made cake balls but there are no pictures. We even went outside and threw the football around. The party pretty much ended when the stadium decided to have a power outage. Good going, guys.

Then Samantha and Mallory decided it would be a good idea to find my blog. Which, I’m not going to lie, if you know me well enough, you can find my blog easy peasily. And they did … Hi Guys. If you’re reading this and you find a picture or something you don’t like that pertains to you, let me know and I’ll take it down! 🙂

It’s been a pretty eventful weekend and this weekend will be even better! Chinese New Year!! Cannot wait!

Celebration Station

Those in Houston, do you remember that place? I remember going there for fun and games whenever there was something to celebrate.

Anyway, thank you for the feedback from my previous post. I tried all the advice I got and it seems it might be working. Or all the worries are in my head. I guess time will tell.  But after posting the post, and going to work the last couple days, things seemed to have changed.Everything takes time and if I don’t feel like I fit in now, maybe I just have to try try again and not over think things. I tend to do so.

I met a British man today. He’s going to be the liaison between me and my new contractor company. He is funny and has a really sweet accent. I am jealous of his accent. And he is kind of cute. 😉 I always think contractor companies send over older people but he seems to be in his middle to late 20s if I have to guess. But uh … can I holla atchu boy? haha JK!

IMG_20121212_144654

On Wednesday my company invited the people on my floor for a Christmas Luncheon at the Downtown Aquarium. If I remember correctly, I don’t think I’ve ever been there so I was very excited … until we got there and realized we weren’t going to see the whole aquarium. Womp Womp.

The picture you see is from the restaurant part of the aquarium. It was really big and we actually saw a lot of fishies and sting rays and whatnot. Just wish I could of seen the sharks and stuff too.

Here was our food lineup:

  • Salad
  • Cranberry Bread – AMAZING. And I never say that about bread.
  • Beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies – medium rare, no flowing jucies. One of my coworkers sent it back because it wasn’t “dead” enough. teehee And I love what they did with the mashed potatoes. They always tasted better when it’s not just plopped down on the plate.
  • Chocolate Mousse (Disgusting. Sorry.), Key Lime Pie (LOVE LOVE LOVE especially the shell), Crème Brulee (wasn’t bad but could be a little thicker for better taste)

IMG_20121212_221139

I made pound cake! Since we decided to celebrate BossMan’s birthday early, I promised him pound cake and I delivered. I didn’t get to taste any so maybe next time. But it sure smelled delicious!

IMG_20121213_143929

We went out to lunch today for BossMan’s birthday. That prime rib was DELICIOIUS. Cooked to perfection. I know what I’m getting next time I’m here .. whenever that will be. We even had a Carrot Cake from Ooh La La Bakery. It was $60 something bucks! But all worth it since it weighed like 10 pounds.

Tomorrow night it’s BossMan’s Birthday Celebration Part 2 … cannot wait. Eep.

Have a great Friday tomorrow! 🙂

Too Much Food

IMG_20121112_152751

Went to the eye doctor who gave me all this stuff … for free.
And because she knew I was a recent college grad,
I didn’t have to pay for some images I had to take for the eyes.
Thanks doc.
