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!!

[2013] 006/365: Safe Haven

Currently in Lufkin where one of my best friend resides, Michelle.

I’ve realized how much harder it is to post a daily picture post … but I’m trying.

I got to check out the city she lives in and hang out with one of her friends here. We’ll call her Blondie because I seriously do not know how to spell her name.

Anyway, Michelle, Blondie, and I went to a Mexican restaurant.

Posados Cafe
3102 S John Redditt Dr.
Lufkin, TX 75904
(936) 634-4920

It’s pretty decent. The service isn’t all that great. My tacos were on the side of greasy. My stomach doesn’t feel that great right now. But overall, not a bad experience. Free sopapillas and ice cream. Who can complain right? Yep, had my first sopapilla and all I can say is … fried dough.

We then headed over to the theater and watched Safe Haven. Seriously one of the best movies ever. I loved every second of it. I will definitely buy this movie and watch it a bazillion times. I want Josh … but who doesn’t?

Time for bed time.

Sleep well lovelies.

A Whole Lotta Fun

Tuesday

A coworker was leaving to do bigger and better things so BossMan took us out for lunch at:

Pradaria
10694 Westheimer Road
Houston, TX 77042
(281) 501-2960
www.pradaria.com

Cheese Bread – too doughy for my taste. Pass …

Salad Bar – a lot of various choices. My favorite is the cow tongue (gross I know … but so good!) and the mashed potatoes since I’ve been craving it!

All You Can Eat Meat – so many choices! I only had a good I don’t know … 10 or so pieces of different meat. That’s SO much. They didn’t come over a lot though. Maybe because we had a lot of people and was scared we were gonna eat all their food.

Thanks Bossman!

Wednesday

Halloween! Also my sissy’s birthday. Yep she’s a halloweenie! (teehee) I was dressed up as a ballerina. Simple and easy because I was tired from a long day of work. She had a little get together costume party and we had wine and cheese, and snacks, and sweets. YuM!

20121031_210855

There’s no pictures since they are her friends and if she doesn’t want to be on the blog, I doubt her friends would either. Don’t know how they’ll feel about that so here’s a picture of Bruno is his bed while we partied.

Friday

The girls: Mallory, Samantha, Leah M. and I had a girl’s night.

Don Julio’s Mexican Restaurant & Cantina
25250 Northwest Freeway
Cypress, TX 77429
(281) 758-4000
www.donjulios.com

Chips & Dip – free and so good … the green one at least which makes me believe is creamy avocado dip. YUM!

We all got Margaritas on ice (Sam got it frozen). I use to think I hate margaritas but I’m beginning to think I don’t like them frozen. In ice is totally different. Guess because it dilutes the alcohol a bit?

La Paz – the enchilada and taco was so good and moist. The pork tamale … not so much. It was SUPER dry. Don’t ever get that if you ever go here.

We moved our booties to a bar. We were early so there wasn’t much people but there was a band playing and I loved their choice of music.

IMG_20121103_002636

But we drove down to Midnight Rodeo and danced our hearts away. It was a lot of fun critiquing people dancing. Some people … they’re there for our entertainment. Sorry for being mean but I’m not sorry. You had to be there.

Saturday

Went over to Mallory’s and we watched Magic Mike with Samantha … too much skin. I’m not use to it. But I guess it’s a given with it being a stripper movie and all.

Channing Tatum is a hottie but my eyes were all for Alex Pettyfer in this one. Mmm … man with scruff.

This week is over already. But I’m excited for what’s to come! Ice Hockey this Thursday. Crossing things off my list! And day off this Friday! Whoop! Happy upcoming week! I promise to do better with this whole blogging during the week thing.

Survived My First Week!

First things first … I am WAY behind on my Google Reader. But TRUST … I will get through it!

Fingers crossed … hopefully this weekend.

It’s been a fun but tiring first week and now it’s the rest of my life. I’m not complaining. I have a job, food, and shelter.

And maybe I’ll still have my friends. I’ve been too busy to hang out with anyone.

Hopefully that’ll change once I get use to this schedule.

The way my building looks out to a wonderful scenery.

What I snack on the most when I get hungry – ALMONDS!

One of my favoritest (that’s a word … don’t question me) things I miss about school – new supplies!
Oh, did I mention they are free! And I picked them out from this BIG BIG Staples Catalogue! Weeee! Smile

So since I made it to one whole week. I celebrated today.

2012-08-10 08.12.47

My co-worker, Tony C., and I went and bought breakfast at our work’s Café instead of making my own breakfast at home.

2012-08-10 11.38.41

Then for lunch I went with Rose to Subway.
It was nice to catch up with her after not seeing her for so, so long.
We laughed, joked, and all that fun stuff.

Oh, did I mention on Friday’s I get to leave an hour early. Win!

So I went shopping!

When I got home, Mum, June, and I went to a Mexican Restaurant down the street for dinner.
(No picture!)
And we talked and joked and all that fun stuff.

Hope y’all had a good week as well.
Lack of postings will occur until I get use to this schedule.
Bare with me!
I am at the moment trying to put together a workout plan and I am PUMPED!

Till next time,
Peace & Love Y’all!

Trudy’s and Amy’s

During Halloween weekend, we had some adventures.

Me, Jenny, Tammy, Brian, Richard, Susan, Peter, Michelle, Wilson P., Long, and Steven all went to:

2011-10-30 15.01.09

Trudy’s
409 West 30th Street
Austin, TX
(512) 477-2935
www.trudys.com

We had to split up with seating so I sat with Peter, Susan, and Michelle.

2011-10-30 15.01.28

It comes with free chips and two different salsa dips. We had already eaten halfway until I realized I had to take a picture. Whoops!

Us four ate at least four times this if not more. It was that good!

2011-10-30 15.30.052011-10-30 15.30.23

Beef Fajita Ala Mexicana [tender beef fajita meat marinated in a soy-ginger spice blend and sautéed with onions, cilantro, jalapenos, tomatoes and lime juice. Garnished with a small salad and sliced avocado. Served with Spanish rice, borracho beans and a choice of tortillas] | $12.50

I got a choice of corn tortillas. Omgosh … I about died. The meat was so juicy and succulent. I was very full. I wasn’t even halfway full. (Maybe it was the chips?) But I made sure to finish ALL the meat. Because it would be a waste if I didn’t.

******************

After we ate, Wilson P., Michelle, Steven, and I were heading back to the apartment and stopped by

2011-10-30 16.48.29

Amy’s Ice Creams
1012 West 6th Street
Austin, TX
(512) 480-0673

2011-10-30 16.56.44

Irish Crème with a waffle cone and sprinkles | ~$5

I’ve never had ice cream with alcohol before so it was a good experience. I couldn’t taste the alcohol but Wilson P. and Michelle thinks it’s filled with it. Hmm …

This was what sparked my ice cream with sprinkles addiction with the last post I made. It was that good. Sadly Amy’s is the best ice cream place I’ve ever been.

Chuy’s

Never give up …

… no matter how tired you are.

I came home around 3:30pm. Thank goodness. I ate dinner early since I was going out to eat again. I knew I would be hungry if I ate later anyway since I planned to run after the celebration.

Doesn’t make sense, does it? Yep … I’m making it up because I was just simply hungry.

Sunny side up eggs on a bed of spinach, bagel thin with Nutella knockoff spread, a handful of jalapeno chips (so not healthy!). So good.

Small sweet potato with yogurt. Yum!

Yeahh … that’s a lot of food even if I was going out to eat again. But it was so good.

Then I took a nap. 😉

When 7:30pm rolled around I got ready for my friend, Ed’s birthday. It was just me and the boys (Ed, Ryan, Daniel). Just how I liked it. Sadly John was missing. 😦 Next time, next time.

We had dinner at:

Chuy’s
2706 Westheimer Road
Houston, TX
(713) 524-1700
www.chuys.com

As all Mexican places have it, Chips and Salsa. Yum!! We had another basket of chips and bowl of salsa. That’s how yummy it was!

Mmm .. sounds good to me! Thanks Chuy’s! 😀

Our food came very quickly. I got the Soft Tacos [two tacos with lettuce, cheese, pico, and your choice of ground sirloin, grilled chicken, or carne guisada. (Also available with guacamole instead of meat for a vegetarian option). Tacos served with rice and reffried or charro beans] | $8.47. I don’t think it’s the same as the menu I saw since this came from the take out menu. It was very delicious. I was so full afterward. I left the cheese on my plate but ate everything else. Delicious.

I would love to come here again and am happy that they have opened one in Katy! It’s so close to home! Yay!

We went to Sherlock’s Baker Street Pub. Yay!

If you look on the bottom left hand corner, you can see a drink. I bought it for my friend, Ryan, since it seemed he was having a bad day. (He went to the wrong Chuy’s.) Apparently the drink is called Sex on Baker Street. He liked it. I didn’t drink. I felt like puking from all that greasy food.

And I want it so damn badly. So I came home to rest a little bit then changed and started my C25K: Week 6 – Run 3.

Warm up 5, Run 25, Cool down 25

I debated for the longest time if I should suck it up and run … so I did. I kept saying in my head, this is the last one for the week. Why give up now?! So .. I went and conquered.

Luckily my arch didn’t hurt so that’s good. I seriously love longer runs than intervals. When can I stop doing intervals?! 😦

I came home and almost passed out on the floor. That’s how tired I was.

My boys (the ones I was hanging out with previously for the birthday celebration) went to a laser tag lock-in. I chose running over that. I must be going crazy.

Time to relax. Weekend is here!

Oh … head over to Fit Chick Britt. She’s asking for pictures of you sporting the make up free look for her future post!!
