Change In My Future – More School?


Cloud Cafe-ing. I’ve made that a word. Currently sipping on an Iced Hibiscus Raspberry Tea. It has a peculiar taste that I’m not use to. I’ll try anything once even though I’m not a fan of raspberry. But it’s not bad. Just very strange for my palette that I’ll have to get use to.



I don’t like that there are MORE people coming in now. I mean yay they’re getting business but now they’re in my area. One girl even dared to sit in MY seat so now I’m in a seat where I can stare at her with disgust. The nerve of some people.



Pretty much how I feel about my seat. *sigh*

Went out with Tim, Sarah, and June for Kenson’s birthday celebration. He’s the youngest cousin I have in the States so it’s a little weird taking him out on his 21st birthday and getting drinks. Everyone is so grown up now. Next thing you know we’ll be celebrating one of my niece’s/nephew’s 21st!


One of the gorgeous views at work.

I’ve been contemplating on other things than just changing up my blog (which might take a while to happen now that I realize how much work I have to prepare for it). I might be going back to school. I cannot fully quit my job since well I’m poor. But I’m searching for some online classes/degrees/programs and whatnot. I’ve found one I’m super interested in but we’ll have to see how that goes.

Cost and how many times I have to go drive/fly somewhere to take tests will be the deciding factor for me. Hopefully whichever one I chose, I’ll be able to follow through. I love learning and things are easy for me if someone teaches me how to do it but taking tests are the death of me – super huge anxiety. *eeeeeeeek*


Me with my British boss. He wanted to take one with the Union Jack! Guess pictures aren’t that fun when faces are blocked out, eh? Oh well.

Time to research about school stuff. Happy weekend loves!


This Much I Know Is True


This much I know is true … My morning cup of Yogi tea always brings positive light into my life. Much needed phrase after everything yesterday.



This much I know is true … No matter how annoying it is, I will always talk about how thankful I am of my friends. I won’t stop. I have amazing friends. I’m thankful I get to connect with them so many miles away especially yesterday night when I didn’t feel like myself.



This much I know is true … After talking to them, my mantra for the night was to eat my feelings … just kidding. It is: “Do not let one bad thing out of the day dismiss all the good things from that day.” You can quote me on that. Straight off of my twitter feed. It’s been copyrighted … Clear head. Happy thoughts. That’s what I need to remember.


This much I know is true … I have demon dogs in my house. Rocky in the back, Bruno in the front.


This much I know is true … mani/pedi’s are relaxing … if the people who work on you make you relaxed. First time at Fashion Nails with sissy and well … it could of gone better.


This much I know is true … having a Sissy is great. Especially when they pay for you. Puahaha. Can you guess which hand belongs to which one of us?


This much I know is true … Rocky and Bruno love to play tug-a-war. And growl. And play fight. So loudly.


This much I know is true … I get Bruno for a week … but his heart belongs somewhere else. Patiently waiting for his owner to come back.

Today was definitely 20x better. Let’s hope the rest of the week goes swimmingly.

Staying Positive and Thinking Good Thoughts.

Thanks A Lot

Pretty sure y’all have been seeing this around the social media like every April 25th of the year. One of the best movies eva so I don’t mind.

I had a light jacket ready … but no takers. Shucks. Next year.



It’s been a tiring week. *sigh* I was so tired I actually scratched my cornea taking out my contacts. Oy vey.

It’s that time of the week!

Thankful for my roots. It’s just that simple. I love being able to speak another language. That also means I have more shows to watch which is the real reason. Win.



Thankful for Facebook. As creepy as Facebook is getting, I’m able to connect with my families in other parts of the world. With some there’s a language barrier (I can’t read/write Chinese except for easy words and they with English) but photos and Google Translate helps.

Thankful for getting every other Friday off. Having that time at the coffee shop lately … so peaceful. But even if I don’t go, it’s just peaceful knowing I don’t have to worry about work which has been stressful because of a certain B.A.B. (Big Ass Bitch).



Thankful for my sissy … because I get to have Bruno for a week next week. Yay for her having to go somewhere for a wedding! PS. Too excited for her own wedding festivities.

Thankful for my friends. Seriously knowing some of them would go out of their way to help me with something or just letting me know they’re thinking about me. Simple. Super thankful.

What are you thankful for?

Mumble Jumble Monday

Pretty much a mumble jumble of random things … because it’s Monday. I’ve worked for 2 hours before my 9 hour class … for work. Bleugh. Where’s my hard worker award?



Give me a high five for sending out the Giveaway winner’s goodies.

All late due to having to find a new winner, get their address, and assemble the box of goodies.

Which brought me to send out one of my best friend’s belated birthday gift. She shall be getting it upon her arrival back home from Disneyworld … Disneyland? with her fiancé. Hopefully she doesn’t read this post or else the surprise factor will be gone.



How I feel when I haven’t heard from my friends in a while.

I’ve been getting texts and calls from my great best guy friends. (Where my girls at?) It’s weird because we can go on for months and not speak but when we do it’s like our friendship never had a halt. I know I say that about pretty much all my friends but it’s true.

I’m a pretty simple girl. Just text or call to show you care and I’ll be your best damn friend. They can vouch for that … hopefully. Else this just turned awkward. Distance and busy schedules will keep us all apart but true friendships stay together forever.

That’s corny, Melissa. Shut up.

Okay, okay.



How I’ve been feeling lately.

It’s been pretty busy over here since Sissy announced she was going to have her judge and tea ceremony part of the weddings next month. Eeep. Less than one month. I’m about to poop my pants. I’ve been looking at decoration ideas and whatnot and it’s just going crazy! There is SO much to do!

She’s enlisted me to be her baker so I’ll be makin’ them cupcakes. I spent literally hours on end looking at recipes and hours on end looking at different decoration ideas. I was told not to spend too much time on it but really … who wants ugly cupcakes for their wedding?!



He’s just hot.



And he’s not.

Happy Monday, y’all. Hopefully everything will be smooth sailing.

Stay Positive & Think Good Thoughts.

2nd Good Deed of the Month …

… by helping kids with cerebral palsy tomorrow. I’ve helped fundraise some money and doing the 5k walk/run at the Houston Zoo in the morning. I’m excited and ready! I hope the weather stays cool. Not hot and super sunny weather puhlease!



We get to look at zoo animals after and I’m hoping I get to see them monkeys. My favorite. They HAVE to look like Marcel from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Sorry I reference everything to F.R.I.E.N.D.S. It was too dang good.

Wanna do a good deed for the day? If you’re willing to donate and help out just follow the link HERE.

Else, have a great weekend. We might catch up again. I might just go and get my caramel latte and you know … blog. Possibly about the walk. We shall see.

Stay Positive and Think Good Thoughts.

Cloud Cafe

Happy Friday y’all! I’ve been on a hunt for a local coffee shop since forever ago. Starbucks was killing me with all those cardboard cups. I needed a real cup.



Like the ones characters of F.R.I.E.N.D.S hold in Central Perk. Dork status. I know. Leave me be. Still can’t get over how that show could ever be cancelled …

Cloud Cafe pretty much fell in my lap. I pass this place a lot (in the 6 months or so they’ve been opened) but I never had the courage to walk in. It’s always scary going to a new place for me. I saw a deal on Groupon (where I get everything) where I paid $5 for 5 cups of coffee, tea, or bubble tea. What? Score. K. I’m down.

Cloud Cafe
1131 S Mason Rd

I’m currently sitting down drinking a big cup of Caramel Latte. With a pretty design.

It was empty walking in. Two employees were working just chilling because there’s not much people no one here. I’m sure they get tons of business in the morning or after work time.

It’s a very hidden shop which I love because that means it’s very chill and I can find a seat. The servers are super nice. They go above and beyond to help you out.

Miss Amazing explained the menu to me and helped me out. Hallelujah. I would of just stood there like a dumbass. Then she told me to sit anywhere and she would bring the cup of joe to me. I don’t have to move? Score. I love this place already.


I sat down to use the Wi-Fi but it failed. Instead of writing me off as my laptop being a stinker (which lazy people usually do in these situations), she looked up a way to fix it for me. A simple router restart x2. Thank you, Miss Amazing. Life would be bummer without internet at a cafe where I cannot blog.

There’s an Art Gallery where you can pretty much buy off the walls. And the art is pretty impressive. Paintings to drawings to straight up stitching? Yep.

They also have open mic nights. A piano sits in the corner. Miss Amazing, who I just found out is actually Miss Co-Owner, even busted out with some notes. She says she’s only learning but dang … another amazing thing to add to the list of stuff she can do.


Couldn’t help it. Just ordered a Hazelnut Latte. Sadly I cannot use one of my 4 remaining vouchers BUT shiet is so good, I don’t mind it. Blogging on the right and blog reading on the left. That would be Lauren’s blog on the left. She’s amazing. Go check her out.

It’s been a good 30 minutes or so and 3 customers already came in. This place is definitely a place to check out. Love it. I will be coming back with or without this Groupon. Hello Fridays off. You and I have a place to go now. 🙂

Julia & Noel’s Wedding

This past weekend was filled with reunions. Whoop! And it’s nice to see that friendships haven’t died. I mean, yeah I’ve been gone for almost one year. But it’s nice that I’m able to talk to them like I use to. Like nothing’s changed. I know I say that a lot but I’m just so thankful for it all.


I was lucky enough to stay at an old friend’s place. Thanks Jane, Chris, Long & Vy!

I bought them a cake to say thank you. That fruit was delectable.

I even got to see Liliana, Marisol, Andy, Jakob, and Nayeli. We went to Kona and had a fun time just talking and making new memories.

I even got to spend one on one time with Liliana. I miss those. They always make me so happy. I can always tell her SO much. It’s crazy.


Sunday was Julia and Noel’s Wedding. Look how precious they are. The love is in their eyes.

I’ve known them since they started college. And they’ve both grown SO SO SO much. They learn from each other and no matter how far apart they are their love stays strong. They never give up when times get rough. They are the definition of love.

High school sweethearts win for this round. Wish them all the best!


They had little snacks for cocktail hour. Yum!


And an open bar … say what?! The little shot glass in the back was our souvenir. Love love love! This would be a Cinnamon Whiskey & Coke. So good!


Tender Wild Greens Salad with Apples and Balsamic Vinaigrette


Freshly Baked Dinner Rolls

Roasted Garlic Petite Tender Beef Filet

Artichoke and Sundried Tomato Stuffed Chicken Breast

Smashed Herbed Potatoes

French Green Beans with Butter and Herbs


 Red Velvet

I drove home right after the wedding. I had a lot of fun. Dancing, photo booths, seeing the two love birds finally celebrating their tying of the knot. Congratulations you two!


Since I came home super late … early Monday morning that is … I took the day off. Got manicures with Samantha and had a lunch date. We went to Ikea, got her a dining table with chairs, helped build one then went to happy hour with Mallory.



We call ourselves The Powerpuff girls. Mallory is blonde … therefore Bubbles. Samantha is a redhead … therefore Blossom. And I have black hair … therefore Buttercup.

I’ve never seen the show but I found it funny that we were like that.

Love them. I get to see them again tomorrow night! Holla!
