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!

Not Just Any Other Workday

20130501_120057

My work had a crawfish boil today. They blocked out 12-4pm for us so we could enjoy crawfish, burgers, and whatnot. We drove to a park where they hired people to cook for us. Look at that giant pot hitched to the back of a truck. That’s how we do it in Texas …

IMG_20130501_121614

Pile of critters. It was great getting to mingle with people outside of my team and talk to those that we work with but rarely see. When 1:30pm hit, everyone was practically done. Bossman told us to get the eff out and don’t return to the office. Um … ksweet.

Zuco and I had plans to go shopping but being able to go earlier and get done earlier … score! Look at all her bags of goodies!!

Got my free birthday gift from Sephora! I thought it was funny they made a video but it’s cute and so thoughtful. I looooooooove Benefit a lot so it was a perfect match!!

When I saw this on my feed after shopping, I about had a heart attack. Someone actually reads my blog … and remembers something from it! Shout out to the amazing Rachael from Happy Healthy Runner. Love her! She has found my spot!

Plus on top of all that, I got a call from the lovely Samantha who I haven’t seen in a while. She wanted to tell me she found an apartment with an extra room aka the study. Pretty much saying I have a place to stay if I ever want to just get away from home or sleepover. Great friend who thinks about me. Love her to death.

Sorry for the jumbled mess of a blog post. I have to get ready for my Skype date with the lovely Patricia and hopefully Gary and Shayna.

So Glad To Be Back

I’ve been in San Antonio since 6:20pm.

Yes. I hauled ass here right after work. Ugh work. I was stuck in two two hour + meetings. A break long enough for lunch. Don’t even get me started. Some people talk too dang much …

Anyway, my night has already been filled with tears and laughter.

Tears: I made sure to get here so I can make it to FTK Movie Night … featuring THON from Penn State. Why they THON and the reason why I gave my life to FTK. I cried pretty much throughout their documentary. Memories. I’m not much of a toucher but those long ass hugs can bring me to tears because I can feel that they miss me and you don’t get much of those anymore.

Laughter: Just being around these people again. They bring me back to life. And these new memories will stay forever. I’m so thankful for all the friendships I’ve made here. We can say “Remember when …” with a few words and laugh our heads off. Memories. And just seeing my advisors and we can still talk and laugh … that’s hard to come by nowadays as well.

So thankful.

I’m currently sleeping in Gary’s living room on an air mattress. First time on one and it feels so funky. Like a waterbed. hehe He and Matthew H. are already asleep but oh gosh … they are so cute and I am so glad I’m getting to know Matt more! I was even comfortable enough to play my guitar and sing to him … with Gary there of course.

Excited for what’s to come so there’s a possible no updates or anything from me. Therefore, enjoy your weekend and I hope it’s filled with laughter and happiness.

Stay Positive & Think Good Thoughts!

Peace & Love

Think Good Thoughts: People

IMG_20120816_185107

I am thankful I can still learn. I’m taking a class online at work, which is paid for, about Petrophysics. 16 hours worth of material you can work at your own pace. Sounds boring and disgusting, right? Actually you are wrong … so wrong. It’s actually very interesting. That would be my hand written notes on the right. That’s how much I love it! I kinda miss school …

I am thankful for having such a wonderful team of people to work with at my job. They’re around my age, mostly, so it’s easier to get along not that my last team was hard to get along with. We can joke more and laugh more. It’s more relaxed which I love.

This morning, Tony C. and I went and got knockoff Starbucks at our building and it was nice knowing I have someone who would do that with me. Not feel as lonely. And it was nice that we were able to share some things about our personal lives that’s outside the office so we’re not so much strangers.

IMG_20120816_205709

Some people on our team went out to lunch at Carabba’s with BossMan today. And got to know them better which was nice. BossMan paid which got us mad because we told him we were going to pay. Tony C. got yelled at for getting up trying to fix that but … what can you do. When BossMan says sit down, you sit down.

I am so very thankful for my job. I know I have it better than a lot of people in the world. I’m not sitting there worried about if I can find a job, what interview is coming up, etc. It might be hard sometimes not having that same routine, being full time with FTK, or seeing some people in my life because they’re all in San Antonio, but as long as they know I’m still there for them and they’re still there for me, I think I’ll be fine. Which leads me to my next Good Thought …

I am thankful for friends who check up on you. I’m not going to lie. I only keep in touch with some people but we only talk once in a blue moon, but it’s nice nonetheless. Especially when it’s them making the initiative. Cuz you know … I hate when I feel like I’m bothering someone. I would talk to everyone if I wasn’t afraid of bothering them. Maybe tell me I’m not bothering you when I talk to you and I promise, I will talk to you forever and ever and ever …

Getting a text from Travis Monday night letting me know the reason he’s M.I.A. from IM-ing or E-mailing is because lack of internet at his new apartment. Then caught up a bit.

Gary called me yesterday while I was at work, left a voice message, called him back after work and we talked for a good while. Always nice to talk to someone even though they’re miles away. Makes me feel like I’m still there.

Getting an IM from Anthony, caught up and found out he has an interview lined up here in Houston in September. Throwing good luck his way.

Had dinner with Mallory after work at Cheddars tonight. (Salad, croissant, broccoli, broccoli and cheese, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a Strawberry Daiquiri. I did not finish at all … neither did Mallory.) She contacted me a few days ago asking if we could hang out. Uh, duh! It was nice to meet up with her and catch up. So much stuff has changed. I’m glad we’re both back in the same city because the hang outs will now commence.

I am thankful I am able to help save lives. Yes, you read that right. Since summer of 2007, I’ve been donating blood. It use to be my whole blood but after half a year of that, I switched to plasmas and platelets. And because of that, I’m able to donate once a week. I haven’t gone in almost a year because I didn’t get to come home as much due to FTK things and then summer came and I was out of the country. Now I’m back and ready to get poked and prodded. I’ve set an appointment for tomorrow morning and I cannot wait! If you’re able to save lives, do it. Do Good, Help Others.

This post accidentally got too long. But it’s never a bad thing when it’s about the good in life.

Be Positive.

Think Good Thoughts.

Cloud 9

Workout today … nada. I am going to break a sweat later moving things so check!

Yesterday was one of the best days in my book.

Hung out with Jenny in the morning. Saw Shayna and Patricia again. Martina drove from downtown to come see me for a little over an hour. Saw Eli. Saw Bob, my FTK advisor, Jennifer, Evelyn, and Arianna, CPE people. Saw Gary again and hung out with him for a good 3 hours. We caught up and it felt nice. Travis came over and we spoke for a little bit. Seeing my Brother Bear in person is different than through the computer screen, that’s for sure.

Saw him and that made all the difference. It was nice. He was running errands so he asked me to join him and I’m glad I did. He came to pick me up and I went and plopped his present in his lap. I hope he liked his gift; he seemed to have. I got him a preserved baby shark, bottle opener ring, and made him a mixed cd. And the card. Cannot forget the card! But I made sure he didn’t open the card in front of me. That’s just weird. Then we headed to a local bookstore. I love books and I’m so glad he had to go there. Wish I knew about it before though because I would of taken the long drive there to study and whatnot. Then we took a walk around the place. They have some nice scenery and things going on. He took some amazing pictures. We ran a few more errands before he took me back home. I’m not sure if he had fun but running errands had never been so fun to me.

I jumped into my car and went to Cheddar’s to meet up with Amanda, Patricia, Matthew P., Steven, Eric, and his friend Jorge, and Christina. We had a fun non-stop laughing dinner. A few of us were going to go to Kona afterward but because it was packed we all went to Eric’s to chill and Andy L. finally showed up. Life was complete.

When I got home, Jenny and I chilled a little bit and my brother, Tammy, and Sammi arrived.

It was a good day. And I’m still on cloud 9. Is that possible?

Today, I’ll be saying goodbye to San Antonio. I don’t think I’ll be coming back till November. Hopefully it’ll be earlier than that. Fingers cross because some of the people I met here are truly family.

Sorry. Long post about nothing pretty much. I actually just really wanted to remember the moment with him because I don’t know if I’ll have that chance again.

Forgive me.

I Never Want To Leave

San Antonio Part II

If anyone was wondering … I haven’t seen him yet but hopefully I do before I leave and before he leaves out of the country for study abroad. I just want to give him his present. No big deal.

Jenny finally arrived … with Krypto and Pluto last night!! Ahhh … my heart skipped a beat. Love those two puppies (who aren’t puppies anymore).

IMG_20120628_202105

Then I went to Patricia and Shayna’s and we made dinner with Gary and his boyfriend Matthew! Getting to catch up with them is heaven. I’ve missed them. I also got to meet a guy named Chris tonight. Nice man. So far nothing bad to say about him. Guess my friend picked a good one! Love seeing happy people. Warms my heart.

Today I have great things going on and I cannot wait to start my day!

I woke up at 9am … to work out. Who am I? What happened to the girl that worked out at night times? I think this is only temporary.

Not being able to go out and run is one of the hardest things here in San Antonio. Don’t get me wrong, I can. But it’s hard because you have to drive to a trail. Sorry, I’m not about to waste gas.

Just did my usual cardio of jumping jacks, run in place, etc. And then I just about died when arms, abs, and legs happened. Luckily it’s my last one for this plan. Hurray! So that kept me going. I feel it the worse in my legs. Bleugh!

After today, only one more workout and my plan is complete! And then it’s packing and off to Hong Kong! Eeep a dee doo da!

Funnies

Okay, I won’t keep you much longer. Here’s some things to look at while you wait patiently for work to end so you can go home!

Yes. Preach it sista. I understand if you want to show a little cleavage … but yeah. Seriously, stick them back in.

My people will never live this down. haha

Me to a tee. My uncle got me a Medium sized football jersey and I love it. But it fits my body but my boobage area. I have squashed boobs. Oh, hi uniboob …

With this heat we’re having in Texas, it’s necessary. Now I just need to find someone with a truck …

His hips don’t lie!

Happy Friday! Stay cool! Smile

Laid Back

Today I went crazy.

Ate a lot of foods I usually don’t eat on that Paleo lifestyle.

But it was fun.

But never like this again because it was definitely TOO much!

Hung out with these people for a brief few minutes. We fit 6 people in a convertible. So fun! We took a lot of crazy pictures. I’m going to be sad when I leave them.

This picture reminds me of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I just wish there was one less girl and one more guy. Then it’ll be just like F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Picture0005

Now we are relaxing and we are going to drink 1800 with orange juice and 1800 with Squirt.

Picture0006

I got a Hoegaarden because I’m a lover of beer and not so much a lover for any other alcohol.

We’re having a girl’s night and watching movies and doing our nails! Whoop!

Time to relax before finals start killing us! Hope you all had a great Friday! Smile
