[2013] 007/365: A Lazy Day in Lufkin

PicsArt_1361065311630

My favorite of any days is being lazy. I watch episodes of Doctor Who and even watching multiple Harry Potter movies.

Dexter the cat has been good company. He mostly just wants to be touched. This is the first time I’ve “lived” with a cat. Other than the kitty litter smell, I think they’re pretty cool.

You can see the Valentine’s Day Run from For The Love of The Kids. They gave free things along with it because they are amazing. I did my run yesterday morning before heading to Lufkin but they were having problems with their system. It was in the 50s this time around. Eep … seriously need to start training again.

I’ve been watching THON live online a few hours here and a few minutes there. So wishing I was there but I wouldn’t trade hanging out with Michelle either. Our schedules (mostly her’s now) is so busy that whatever time we can get, I’ll take.

You can stop reading if you don’t want to hear about food.

In any case, hope you all had a great Saturday! I know am. More Harry Potter movies. Relaxation at it’s finest.

Another Broken Egg Cafe

I love this place. Whenever I see one I want to go and I was so happy when Michelle said we could stop there for a super late breakfast/late lunch.

I ordered The Supreme Omelet [sausage, bacon, sautéed onions & mushrooms with Cheddar Jack served with an English muffin and seasoned country potatoes] | $9.99

I died … I just love their country potatoes SO freaking much. I can’t even explain it. Their food is so good. Oh and we ate for a while and the inside of my omelet was still hot. That’s how it should be.

If you ever see one of these somewhere, stop by and try it out. If it’s not good, let me know … I won’t stop there.

Ah … you’ve guessed it. Chinese food for dinner.

We got Chicken and Brocolli with Rice & Eggroll, Beef and Brocolli with Fried Rice & Eggroll, and Vegetables and Lo Mein.

Food was good.

I told Michelle that we don’t get to eat this fake stuff at home so it’s fun to do so once in a while. She now has a ton of leftovers. teehee

New Year, 2nd Blogoversary

It’s been a whirlwind of a year. Reason I started this blog on New Year’s Day is because I wanted a new start. And because I knew people did recaps every Blogoversary and New Year … and I’m too lazy to do it twice in one year sooooo yep. Here goes!

  • First time in a recording studio: back of a house type deal but it was cool to see how everything gets put together. Helped throw some ideas in. I loved it. I wish I was good enough for this line of work.

There has been so much going on this past year and there would be more if I was more consistent with my blogging. It’s been a year of ups and downs but the ups shine through more. I hope you all had a great 2012 because 2013 just begun and it’s going to be a great one!

Stay Positive! Think Good Thoughts!

2013 New Year Resolutions

Before I get to my 2013 New Year Resolutions, here’s a recap of my 2012 Resolutions.

  • Graduate from College
    • May 2012! So sad to have to leave but so joyous that I actually did it.
  • Find a steady job
    • August 2012! Making paper!
  • Lose 25+ lbs
    • FAILED
  • Run a 5k race
    • November 2012 – Gobbler Gallop For The Love of The Kids … 00:47:31

  • Stay in touch with friends
    • Kept in touch with some college friends and high school friends
    • Rekindled with some high school friends

I think I did a pretty splendid job with keeping up with my resolutions … minus the weight thing so you KNOW it’s going to be on this upcoming year’s list.

My 2013 New Year Resolutions

  • Lose 25+ lbs or at least some weight.
  • Live healthier. Eating …. working out. Yah know. Same old same old.
  • PR on my 5k even if it is just one minute.
  • Be a better blogger by not slacking off as much and reaching out more.
  • Dress better because I look like a grandma when I’m at work.
  • Hello over humongous pores! I need to better my skin routine.
  • As much as I love being one of the guys I love being a girl. I just have to be less lazy and just be more like a girl.

Doable? Fingers crossed.

I know most of these has to do with looks in a way, but for me to be more comfortable in my skin, I need to have better skin.

What are your resolutions?

Happy New Year’s Eve, loves!

New Year, New Memories.

Jared, Painting, Red Dawn, 5k Race

Got to see Jared last night. Gave me a tour of his apartment, had a beer or two and talked, showed me something he’s working on … music wise, then went to Cane’s for dinner. Sometimes some friendships just work. I’ve only seen him one other time in 5 years and that was a good month or so ago. Love when you’re able to just talk. It’s kind of funny actually. Back when we were in high school I was the talker and he would listen and only talked when he felt necessary. Our roles are reversed now. I’m more reserved and he’s more outgoing. It works. Surprising how 5 years can change a person.

The sky during my 5k Run.

I used this run as my 5k Race time for the virtual Gobbler Gallop For The Love of The Kids. 00:47:31. Time might suck for y’all real runners but it’s better than I thought. Especially since I started running again 2 weeks and 2 days ago … and skipping 3 of my scheduled running days due to going to San Antonio. Yes I know. No excuses so to me I’m just happy I finished. Fracture is a little twingy but other than that I feel great.

Tonight is baking time and prepping for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Dinner. Eeep!!

And hopefully in the morning I’ll be able to go to 24 hour Fitness and try out the Yoga-lates class. Yay for 3 day passes! 🙂

Hope you’re all having a great Thanksgiving Eve! ❤
