^my titles are getting worse.

I saw some statistics that blogging at this time of day is bad for your blog. Reason is because you get less hits. In my opinion, it doesn’t matter when you blog as long as you do it and not fifty thousand times in one day.

I still don’t understand how people do it. Some post THREE times a day and it’s filled with information. It makes sense for those that blog full time or stay a homes but if you have a full time job, I really don’t understand.

Then there’s those people that have a SINGLE post that might as well be novels. Once in a while, it’s okay, but every time you post? Information overload. My brain is dead after work ends so processing that much info from a single post … it just doesn’t work out that well.

With that being said, if you haven’t noticed, Google Reader is no more. It’s a sad day for many of us but Feedly has been working brilliantly for me. Not much complaints. I work with what I have. So if you still need a new platform, give Feedly a try!

This week, although short, has been quite long. I’ve gotten so much done (work and personal) and I’m so proud of myself.

Happy Tuesday y’all!

Boys

No lies. I’ve been lazy since the 18 hour Dance Marathon. I’ll update on it soon along with some happenings this week. I just need to take a break for a little. Hope you understand. I will catch up on Google Reader soon. Still looking for an alternative Google Reader. Eeps.

Rachael is having a tshirt giveaway (2 to be exact). Go enter here!! She’s amazing sooo you don’t want to miss this!

I found this online on Pinterest. If you have the correct linkage to this, I will definitely link it to the right place.

Anyway, is this true boys? Do y’all feel this way?

Say What?!

Does anyone know why it’s going away?! What am I suppose to use now? Gahh help me!! I don’t like when these big changes happen. I don’t want to have to go to every single site every day to see if people have updated! What do you use?!

We had a team lunch today. I got Carne Asada Faijtas. I love the fact that they didn’t roll them up for me or anything and they let ME cut the meat. Let’s just say I had enough for three meals. SCORE! Wished the onions were more grilled though.

Oh … and on the topic of lunch I saw one of my coworker’s picking their teeth after they finished. How gross is that?! It wasn’t even the front ones. It was the back ones … even grosser. Some people obviously need to learn some manners.

We celebrated a coworker’s birthday today … AGAIN. Second time this month and we have another one next week. Yikes. This baby probably weighed around 20 pounds. The layers were humongous and they definitely don’t skimp on the middle frosting. My guess is 8 inches per layer plus a 3 inches for the middle frosting brining it to a big whopping 19 inches … It actually grosses me out. It’s suppose to feed 14 or so people but I think it can feed a good 30 if we slice it in half and then cut it up.

But seriously … with all food aside. I need a new form of Google Reader. Please Please Please HELP!!

Woof, Woof!

I don’t understand how people can update 3-6 times a day. It’s a little ridiculous to me. Do y’all not have a life?! Or am I just SUPER lazy? I think it’s the latter. Anyway, the load in my Google Reader is making me stressed out.

So I relaxed with online shopping. Online shopping is the devil. I only bought stuff because I had coupons, else, I wouldn’t bother. But oh oh oh! I am excited for all the stuff that is going to be coming in the mail! I cannot wait!

Andrew C. texted me two songs yesterday and I’m already in love with them. I’ve replayed them a bunches of times! I think I broke the replay button. I love, love, love when I get new songs to listen to! Especially when they’re right up my alley! I was actually very surprised I got a text from him since I haven’t really talked to him in a long while but it was nice nonetheless to catch up a little bit.

And Travis now has internet/cable at his new apartment!! So we’re able to catch up. Seems life is going really well for him. No matter what he thinks. We’re all growing up. I wish I wasn’t though because my paycheck is now partially gone to pay back loans and buy my own insurance. Yuck.

But the good thing about growing up is looking for a puppy! My dream doggies pictured above. Shiba Inus. But they cost an arm and a leg and there are none in the shelters. Aren’t they cuties?!

Since I’m living at home, I had to get an okay from the parents … and I did! I’m so excited. I’ve been searching online for the one. I feel kind of bad doing so because I feel like I’m shopping for a dog. And that sounds HORRIBLE to me. I’ve been looking at shelters and I even downloaded the Petfinder app on my phone!

I wish I could adopt them all! They are all so dang cute. I’ve found one I really love but my parents aren’t so fond of him. Guess I have to keep looking. Hopefully I find one we all love because I cannot wait to have him/her with me forever and ever!

Hope you had a great weekend! I surely did!

Peace & Love

Simple Things That Make Me Happy

Sorry if you thought I was doing a giveaway. I just wanted to talk about giveaways.

Forgive me?

I’ve gone through a lot of my Google Reader. The ones that I read always haven’t been touched. Ironic, huh? Because those I read in depth and comment most of the times.

I realized I missed A LOT of giveaways. Is the beginning of August the giving month? I am now depressed that I’ve missed out on some great ones. But then again there’s one like the IPad that I didn’t enter in because I don’t feel the need to enter. I rather someone else that really wants it, wins it! So I’ve entered in none so far.

It’s always great to see old friends, now acquaintances, doing well.

One of my old high school buddies just signed with the Royals a few days ago in the MiLB. For those that don’t know, that’s the Kansas City’s Burlington Royals in Minor League Baseball. Cool, huh?

I like hearing good news and I’m so happy for him. He’s grown so much. One day he’s going to get there and I’ll be able to point at the telly and say, “I knew him in high school!” I’m pretty sure I have a few pictures with us in it from those disposable camera days and his autograph in my yearbook.

I am super excited for Sissy and Brett! We’ve been talking about dresses, venues, music, and other happy stuff. They want it simple with lots of dancing.

I wish I was a Wedding Planner … or better yet Party Planner. Seems like SO much fun. Lots of organizing and all that jazz!

Oh and lately I’ve been remodeling some things in the house. Like my bedroom. My bedroom kind of looks like an office now and I joke, “Come into my office!” when Mum walked into my room today and we talked about changing some things up in the master bedroom. Hope Dad doesn’t mind the changes that will be made soon!

I’ve been foam rolling my back whenever it aches a bit. Or wherever else when I watch telly.

It’s really been helping me. Especially with those long hours at the desk in front of the computer.

Speaking of … I’ve been watching some POP Pilates videos and I think I’ll start those first and see where they’ll take me. They aren’t too long so it seems will fit in my work schedule perfectly. Fingers crossed.

If you know any POP Pilates workouts, let me know! Smile

Happy Sunday!

Just a Little Update

If you recall, I started the Paleo way of living last Wednesday; I’ve been doing real well! Even going home, I was not tempted to eat what my family was eating. On the right path.

When I get a little down time, I’ll post the recipes of the food we make and eat. It’s delicious!

I have lost 13.2 pounds in the last six weeks. And I hope that continues. If so, I’ll reach my goal before my goal date!

I’ve also been doing some sports. Intramural champion at Dodgeball! Winking smile And I’ve also been playing some football and softball. Busy schedules!

Soon, I have dance starting up. I hope I don’t crash from all these events!

I’ll be M.I.A. more and more until after April 15th.

For The Kids Dance Marathon at UTSA will be happening on April 13th and 14th and I’ve been busy getting ready for that.

I have 732 and counting unread Google Reader posts! AH! But they will all get read once my time frees up! Promises!

If you’re anywhere near the San Antonio area, you should come and be a part of it. It’s a great experience! If you have any questions, just send me an email! Smile

I Wish You Said Something Mean

I was told I am selfless. In where I can give up something I like so much so that it makes other people happy. In which I replied, but is that a good thing? That’s a question I’ve been pondering for a lifetime.

I opened my Google Reader for the first time since four days ago … 1000+ unread. Whoops. I’m slowly making my way through it all! So if you see me commenting on something old, that’s why.

 

Great song by a great singer. Lyrics are a little too spot on sometimes. She’s so gorgeous. Check her out. Smile

My friend, Nicole, got engaged tonight. So happy for her. It seems everyone’s finding their one. Cannot wait to hear the story and details! This is going to be so exciting!!

Tomorrow’s the 5k Diploma Dash. I’m not running it though with my shin splints, I don’t think it’s a good idea. I will walk it though! Open-mouthed smile Sadly I don’t think this counts as doing a 5k in my bucket list. Sad smile Next time, next time!

Time to get ready for bed. Nighty night!
