Sweet Bliss

I wish every work week was only 3 days long … how much happier would the world be? Given not having everyone off at the same time cuz that’s just crazy. Having all day yesterday AND today off to do NOTHING is amazing. I feel much more refreshed and I’ve gotten SO much done than I’ve had in a long time. Oy … I make life seem so sad sounding.

A year ago today I was in my hometown seeing my Mum’s side of the family after not being back for almost 15 years. It’s surreal how much I could remember from when I was younger. I miss Mum’s side of the family and talk about all the fun I had last summer.

Hong Kong … I will see you again soon. Maybe 2015? Wait for me!

Before the fireworks.

I hope you all had a great Fourth! I got to see Samantha, Mallory, John, and Mallory’s Family for a good hour to watch fireworks near our house. I took an Instagram Vid … but it wouldn’t let me post it on here. LAME. Should of stuck with Vine.

Afterward, Samantha and I got hotdogs from Sonic. Apparently hotdogs are the definition of ‘merica. At least that’s what Samantha says. On the way back to my house we got stuck in traffic. Made use of our time and took selfies. Like her scarf? It’s an infinity scarf that I got her for her for part of her early birthday present.

I came home catching up on Pretty Little Liars. Rocky came upstairs (which he never does at night time) and is now sleeping on my bed. Love it since this show is TOO suspenseful.

It feels like the weekend is over and tomorrow should be Monday but I love that it’s only going to be Saturday!

Such sweet bliss.

Have a great weekend y’all!

It was a long Friday at work. Felt like every time I saw the clock it was only a few minutes pass. But coming home from it was great. Look at that sky!

Got together with Mallory, Samantha, John, Robbie, Lyndsey, and her friend Amy to watch Wade Bowen!

Me and my girls.

Bought my ingredients to crock pot breakfast and lunch for the week. I am excited!

Short post so you all can get back to your weekend!

Stay Positive & Think Good Thoughts.

Chris Cagle Concert

Shopping happened yesterday. Samantha and I went to Kohl’s and spent a load of unnecessary money. But hey, we look good.

Ate at Texas Roadhouse. Mmmm … their cinnamon butter is so bad for you but oohhh so good.

Met at Mallory’s and got ready then headed to the Chris Cagle concert at Mo’s with John K., Lyndsey, and Ryan.

Lyndsey, Me, Samantha, and Mallory

Me, Samantha and Mallory are wearing all new clothes … because that’s how we do.

It was super loud in there so I wasn’t able to hear anything they were saying but I still had fun.

Chris Cagle played a new song which I am in love with. I just have to figure out what it’s called …

It’s Chinese New Year’s Eve so it means lazy day until tomorrow.

Peace and Love.

Last Week … Weekend Festivities

Tuesday:

I love my job. Why? Because I have TWO companies as of right now and one of them threw an amazing social at Dave and Busters! Can’t wait for the next social!

Friday:

Day off!

Went to brunch with the sissy then she went off to her mani/pedi and I went home and baked two type of things for the dinner party. It was held at The Powerpuff Clubhouse … aka Samantha’s place.

Bubbles, John, and Blossom.

We hung out the rest of the night and I had a lot of fun just being silly with them. It was Mal and I’s first real party ever since being out of high school. Makes me realize just how grown up we are.

Saturday:

I went to Whole Foods with Mum and June. It’s SO SO SO close to home now. I’m in love … with a store. Don’t judge.

I found these pretty awesome cute pebbled potatoes. They were $4.99 so I sadly had to put them down.

20130202_105030

I picked these babies up instead. $2.99 for way more. I used some to make dinner!

IMG_20130202_195553

Picked up some Shrimp & Chicken Jambalaya. And used the potatoes and made a Sausage, Potato, Veggie Bake. It was a win.

IMG_20130202_203125

I even got dessert from Whole Foods for the fams.

Sunday:

I went to Madison’s house (Mallory’s sister) and watched the Super Bowl. I made cake balls but there are no pictures. We even went outside and threw the football around. The party pretty much ended when the stadium decided to have a power outage. Good going, guys.

Then Samantha and Mallory decided it would be a good idea to find my blog. Which, I’m not going to lie, if you know me well enough, you can find my blog easy peasily. And they did … Hi Guys. If you’re reading this and you find a picture or something you don’t like that pertains to you, let me know and I’ll take it down! 🙂

It’s been a pretty eventful weekend and this weekend will be even better! Chinese New Year!! Cannot wait!

I Dreamed That Love Would Never Die …

If I ever am lonely enough and really want a man, I know where to go … New Orleans.

I got hit on numerous times to the point I had to tell my coworker to NEVER leave my side!

Thursday night I went over to Samantha’s area of the world and we watched Les Miserables.

I thought the girl in the pictures was Honey Boo Boo … that someone photoshopped her face in their. Whoops. Sorry amazing singing girl.

This movie made me wish I was in theater and a singer. And it made me miss orchestra too. Bleugh!

I was so excited to see this movie I forgot my phone at the restaurant. Scariest moment ever. I couldn’t enjoy the movie as a whole since in the back of my mind all I could think about was the movie.

Oh, and he was a pretty cutie. Eddie Redmayne. When he sings though, his vibrato throughout his body is pretty ridiculous. His whole neck up just shakes.

Last night, I went to Midnight Rodeo with Mallory, Samantha, John K., and Robert. Two others were suppose to come too but … nope.

We had fun regardless. Lots of laughs, singing, and dancing. It’s always fun with them!

Later today I get to go to my first wine tasting and then sushi after. Can’t wait.

Happy Saturday y’all!

Sweet Company

I know a lot of people type and edit their blog posts on their computer. For some reason, I do it on paper more times than I do with the computer. It’s just easier for me to jot down. I do get sad about it though since I am wasting trees …

I got to Skype with Patricia on Tuesday. Even got a little time in with Shayna! We got to catch up but I couldn’t remember some things I was going to tell them. Whoops. Guess it wasn’t important! I was hoping that when I go down to S.A. for the wedding I could see Patricia but she isn’t going to be in town since she has training in Austin … so if fate will allow and our plans do work out, I might be able to stop by Austin … along with seeing Joanne. She’ll be busy with school though so we shall see!

nannycaps

I am sorry for whoever made this screencap … I don’t remember where I found it. 😦

I also got to catch up for an hour and a half on the phone with Jane. I haven’t truly talked to her in so long due to us being so busy and going our separate ways. It’s pretty great to know that the friendships that I thought were over due to not having spoken in so long isn’t. That they still call me in times of trouble or just because. Those are seriously the best friendships and I am so thankful for them. I cannot wait to see her at the wedding. It’s been TOO long!

I really do miss not being there. There being San Antonio.

Samantha taking a swing.

But I love being here, too. If I wasn’t, I wouldn’t have been able to go to Top Golf with Mallory and Samantha. Samantha and I met John K., Mallory’s dude, along with Robert, John’s friend. We had lots of laughter over most of the time … nothing. I live for moments like these. I did better at Top Golf the first time I went. Beginner’s luck? I am certain it also has to do with a little nervousness with hanging out with people I just met.

20130109_183605

I ordered a Turkey Burger with potato wedges from Top Golf and I am sad to say … their food isn’t all that great and over priced. I think I’ll stick to the drinks next time. Bleugh!

New Orleans trip is in 2 days! What?! I’m not ready. My packing list is written down. I just have to physically pack my things and I’ll be good to go. Sadly I heard it’s going to rain pretty much the whole time we’re there. Boo.

Have a great Friday! I know I will!
