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!

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!

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!

I’m Back San Antonio!

Workout

Be proud of me. I woke up and immediately changed and worked out.

45 min cardio

For the first 15 minutes I had no energy and kept yelling at myself, “Why are you doing this now?”

Yep. I felt like a lazy lard until I picked up my pace and said it’s now or never.

After that 15 minutes I realized it’s not that bad at all.

I congratulate all of y’all that work out in the morning upon waking up.

San Antonio

Reason I worked out so early is because I needed to head to San Antonio. Last time for a while. Hoping I can come back here by September. It sucks how much I really miss these people when I’m back home.

Went to Aerie. Then went and saw Leah at Kona. Caught up and ate. Took a nap (because I’m getting old). And now I’m talking to Jared on Facebook. We have bad timing. Every time he’s free, I’m not and vice versa. He was wondering to hang out and obviously, I’m in San Antonio.

Cannot wait to see some lovelies tonight!! Going to seize the moment!

Question: Foam Roller or The Stick?

Sunshining

I don’t think I’ve been this happy in a long time. Since high school I felt like everything has been falling apart. But now that I’ve grown and found out that there are some amazing people around me and opened up to them, I feel happier. Everything is even going my way … mostly. And it’s just … great. So great that sometimes you know something horrible will happen … and it did.

I got into a car accident Wednesday night. Unexpectedly. It was all the other person’s fault and he admitted to it. Bumper to bumper. My car is perfectly fine … just a little scratch but my whole body feels like I’ve been hit by the car itself. Don’t worry. Plans to go to the doctor is tomorrow. Oh and I’m okay.

I drove to Katy this morning to make it to Nicole’s Bridal Shower. First real official bridal shower. All the other ones were just friends getting together and stuff. I love my girls and their family. It just feels right. I feel like I belong … finally.

Here is a plethora of pictures from these past few days. Enjoy.

After an interview with a company in Houston, I went to go buy a present for the Bride-to-Be, Nicole. My face of, I don’t know how this works. There are too many things on the list. But I figured it out and it was kind of fun! (Oh and the interview? Let’s just say, I’ll be a grown up soon enough! Winking smile)

With Jakob and Andy. It was Andy’s birthday. But he doesn’t celebrate birthdays. So we went out to eat with a big group of people then the three of us and Marisol went to Kona Grill and had Sake Bombs! Since it was his 21st, we had to go all out! So much laughter. So much memories.

With Christina, Apurva, Carl, and Andy in the FTK room. Just having a fun time taking random pictures on the Mac. It feels great not having to worry as much about finals as everyone else. Senior status. Open-mouthed smile

Jenny brought home Roc. Roc is Jenny’s friend’s dog. He’s been staying with us the past few days. Such a chill beagle mixture!

At Nicole’s Bridal Shower. Country Western Themed. Cute little snacks. There were even cowboy hat cookies, delicious punch, strawberries with whipped cream, etc. I just didn’t get a picture of everything because I just wanted to pig out!

With Nicole, Bride-to-Be. I love her! Don’t mind me. I just drove three hours to come to the party and I didn’t have time to fix myself up.

With Nicole, Stephanie, and Michelle. Pretty much all the girls I ever hang out with from back in the high school days. I love them so much! No matter how far apart we all were from one another, Nicole – Texas Tech, Stephanie – University of Texas, Michelle – University of Houston, Me – University of Texas at San Antonio, we were able to stay friends and keep that bond.

Growing Up

I was suppose to start Paleo on May 1st but a sea of events made me change my mind. It was Andy L.’s birthday and although he doesn’t celebrate his birthday, we went out for dinner and drinks because he was turning 21. Only the right thing to do, right? So how can I start Paleo when I would have to drink beer. And when I say have I mean, want to. We had dinner at Cheddar’s with a big group of people and then ended up going to Kona. There was only four of us total, but that’s all you need to have fun!

I got into a three hour plus deep conversation with someone and I realized that timing is everything and I don’t have it. I never have it. Paleo was the last thing on my mind that day.

**********

Jenny is the worst when it comes to picking movies. She picked Haywire just because Channing Tatum is in it. Really? He was only on screen for at least 15 minutes.

Travis left few seconds before the movie was over. Let’s just say we were lost pretty much the entire movie. Travis and I texted the whole time. Yep … worst movie ever. Don’t watch it.

We were suppose to watch Hugo but Jakob came over and we watched The Cell instead. It’s a weird movie but very sad if you think about it. Actually I watched the movie. He fell asleep and is still asleep on the couch. I tried waking him up and it didn’t work. How do you wake someone up that is a heavy sleeper?

**********

Did I mention I was graduating? Yep. Next Saturday. Next step … into the real world.
