Simple San Antonio Weekend

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!

Thursday:

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.

Friday:

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.

Saturday:

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.

Sunday:

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!

Best Friday All Summer

I’ve been eating a lot of OOIAJ. Seriously … if you were to have asked me back last month if I would like eating oats, my answer would be “NO WAY JOSE!”

My favorite is simply vanilla yogurt, milk, oats, pb, a little Nutella, and a lot of blueberries. YUM!

Yesterday I got to work and finished the project that I was assigned. Whooooo! Surprised smile

Michelle H. came in and we talked about America’s debt. I wished the government took time out to see who they’re giving money to. There are people out there that cheat the government. There are some college kids who take financial aid and loans and use it for vacations or buy things they don’t need instead of school. There are women and men who can fully well work but chose not to and ask for food stamps. Some even have a billion kids so that they can get even more welfare. I think that is ridiculous. That is why we’re in debt people. If the government works harder to see who really needs it, they won’t be that much in debt as they are. That’s my two cents. End of rant.Steaming mad

Then Rose, kid Karen, and baby Katherine came to visit the office. I left from work early at 1pm to go to lunch with them. Cheddar’s! Yum!!

Karen is such a delight. I love her! I was sad when we all had to leave. But a little happy I didn’t have to had back to the office.

Later that night I went over to Michelle’s house. (A different Michelle than Michelle H. … just to be clear.Winking smile) Her house is amazing like I’ve said before. This time I have pictures of their movie theater room!

They have four recliners!! Five counting the one on the side by itself. From left to right is Michelle, Nicole, and Stephanie. Inside that closet are loads and loads of DVDs, home videos, and devices where you can buy movies instantly and watch them! SO jealous!

IMG_4864

They even had a popcorn machine! How cool is that?! Michelle’s dad came up and made us some. Thanks Mister Reed!

IMG_4869

So freaking dang cute! And so freaking dang good! There’s a separator at the bottom so all the kernels that didn’t pop would fall through. So dang genius!

Like my nail?! I painted a old school pink then the shatter polish on top. I really like them. I want to get other shatter colors now. Addicted? Guess so!

IMG_4866

Look at that dang screen! So big! (I need to stop saying dang!)

Don’t worry. We didn’t watch Insidious. I told them to never invite me over if they were ever to chose a scary movie.Crying face I would pee my pants and maybe a little more than pee if you catch my drift.Smile with tongue out

Limitless where you take a pill and you can do things you never thought you could.

Pretty much my summary of the movie. I loved it and Bradley Cooper makes it that much better. The ending when he speaks Chinese .. kind of butchers the whole movie for me. But still good.

Meet Jake, the lab. Meet Tigger, the tabby cat. And meet Dexter, the grey kitty. All animals in Michelle’s house. So cute!

When I got home a little over 1am, I watched another movie before bed.

My Future Boyfriend: Barry Watson’s character travels back in time from year 3000 something to ask a writer questions about what love, passion, sex, etc. is since in their year, there is no such thing.

Barry Watson is so cute. I loved him from 7th Heaven. Sara Rue lost a lot of weight. She used to be on a show called Popular. Anyway, this was a cute movie about traveling back in the future finding love, etc. I watched this off Netflix if anyone’s interested.

I think I can say this Friday was the best Friday all summer!Open-mouthed smile

Cheddar’s Casual Cafe

On the day of my birthday, May 13th, June got work off and my brother came down so we had a breakfast/lunch celebration before the dinner celebration at:

Cheddar’s Casual Cafe
21150 Katy Freeway
Katy, TX 77449
(281) 578-0593
www.cheddars.com

We shared the Triple Treat Sampler [a combination of beef, bean, and cheese nachos plus your choice of two others: loaded potato skins, crispy chicken tenders or mozzarella cheese sticks] | $7.99. We chose the loaded potato skins and crispy chicken tenders. The nachos were delicious. I wish there were more jalapenos though. The potato skins are very regular. I wish we picked something else. The chicken tenders are to die for. They were very juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. I would definitely come back for the chicken tenders.

June ordered the Grilled Salmon [choose grilled, blackened or bourbon glazed salmon. Served on a bed of savory rice with two sides] | $9.99. She chose the salmon to be grilled and ordered a side of mashed potatoes and coleslaw. She liked it a lot. I tried the mashed potatoes. They were very moist and fluffy.

My brother ordered Shepard’s Pie [a complete meal of seasoned beef and vegetables in a savory sauce, classically topped with homemade mashed potatoes] | $7.29. I’ve never had Shepard’s pie before so I had to steal some from the brother. I loved it and want to go back to get some more. I would order more mashed potatoes on the side though because I felt there wasn’t enough.

I got the Fish Tacos [hand breaded, fried, white fish in flour tortillas, with roasted corn slaw and cajun tartar sauce. Two tacos served with choice of one side. Fresh off the grill version – also available] | $6.49. I got the fresh off the grill selection and this was very delicious. I didn’t use the sauce though because it tasted funny and the fries were okay. Not that great.

I would come back here and get the Shepard’s pie or crispy chicken tenders. Yum!
