Mumble Jumble Monday

Pretty much a mumble jumble of random things … because it’s Monday. I’ve worked for 2 hours before my 9 hour class … for work. Bleugh. Where’s my hard worker award?

Give me a high five for sending out the Giveaway winner’s goodies.

All late due to having to find a new winner, get their address, and assemble the box of goodies.

Which brought me to send out one of my best friend’s belated birthday gift. She shall be getting it upon her arrival back home from Disneyworld … Disneyland? with her fiancé. Hopefully she doesn’t read this post or else the surprise factor will be gone.

How I feel when I haven’t heard from my friends in a while.

I’ve been getting texts and calls from my great best guy friends. (Where my girls at?) It’s weird because we can go on for months and not speak but when we do it’s like our friendship never had a halt. I know I say that about pretty much all my friends but it’s true.

I’m a pretty simple girl. Just text or call to show you care and I’ll be your best damn friend. They can vouch for that … hopefully. Else this just turned awkward. Distance and busy schedules will keep us all apart but true friendships stay together forever.

That’s corny, Melissa. Shut up.

Okay, okay.

How I’ve been feeling lately.

It’s been pretty busy over here since Sissy announced she was going to have her judge and tea ceremony part of the weddings next month. Eeep. Less than one month. I’m about to poop my pants. I’ve been looking at decoration ideas and whatnot and it’s just going crazy! There is SO much to do!

She’s enlisted me to be her baker so I’ll be makin’ them cupcakes. I spent literally hours on end looking at recipes and hours on end looking at different decoration ideas. I was told not to spend too much time on it but really … who wants ugly cupcakes for their wedding?!

Happy Monday, y’all. Hopefully everything will be smooth sailing.

[2013] 008/365: Evening Primrose Oil

IMG_20130217_221452

On the drive back home after a much needed relaxing weekend with Michelle. It was great getting it after such busy weekends. *sigh* It was great seeing her and now she’s possibly reading my every words. Eep! I love you, Michelle! Thanks for having me!

Anyway, have you ever heard of Evening Primrose Oil? I’ve been Pinteresting and found out their worth. Given I’m not 100% sure if it’s believable, but what’s the harm in trying, eh?

Evening Primrose Oil is said to be “a great anti-aging supplement seeing improvement in skin tightening and preventing wrinkles. Helps with hormonal acne, PMS, weight control, chronic headaches, menopause, endometriosis, joint pain, diabetes, eczema, MS, infertility, hair, nails, and scalp.”

I took my first pill tonight and I will update on it once it’s sunken in for a few days or so. Hopefully it’ll help my eczema and everything else that’s possibly wrong with me. Fingers crossed!

If you’ve taken it or heard of it before, let me know what you think!

Today was the end of THON 2013 and they raised over $12 million! They never cease to amaze. So wished I was there. Makes you feel SO SO SO alive. Sadly a lot of them couldn’t get into the BJC since it was super packed. Oh well … that just means they’re that great!

Michelle sent me this and it made me all happy inside. Dexter misses me! teehee

[2013] 007/365: A Lazy Day in Lufkin

PicsArt_1361065311630

My favorite of any days is being lazy. I watch episodes of Doctor Who and even watching multiple Harry Potter movies.

Dexter the cat has been good company. He mostly just wants to be touched. This is the first time I’ve “lived” with a cat. Other than the kitty litter smell, I think they’re pretty cool.

You can see the Valentine’s Day Run from For The Love of The Kids. They gave free things along with it because they are amazing. I did my run yesterday morning before heading to Lufkin but they were having problems with their system. It was in the 50s this time around. Eep … seriously need to start training again.

I’ve been watching THON live online a few hours here and a few minutes there. So wishing I was there but I wouldn’t trade hanging out with Michelle either. Our schedules (mostly her’s now) is so busy that whatever time we can get, I’ll take.

You can stop reading if you don’t want to hear about food.

In any case, hope you all had a great Saturday! I know am. More Harry Potter movies. Relaxation at it’s finest.

I love this place. Whenever I see one I want to go and I was so happy when Michelle said we could stop there for a super late breakfast/late lunch.

I ordered The Supreme Omelet [sausage, bacon, sautéed onions & mushrooms with Cheddar Jack served with an English muffin and seasoned country potatoes] | $9.99

I died … I just love their country potatoes SO freaking much. I can’t even explain it. Their food is so good. Oh and we ate for a while and the inside of my omelet was still hot. That’s how it should be.

If you ever see one of these somewhere, stop by and try it out. If it’s not good, let me know … I won’t stop there.

Ah … you’ve guessed it. Chinese food for dinner.

We got Chicken and Brocolli with Rice & Eggroll, Beef and Brocolli with Fried Rice & Eggroll, and Vegetables and Lo Mein.

Food was good.

I told Michelle that we don’t get to eat this fake stuff at home so it’s fun to do so once in a while. She now has a ton of leftovers. teehee

[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.

IMG_20130216_011957

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.

Happy Friday!

Lately I’ve been wondering how I made it through my school years. At work, in meetings, I always feel so tired. Someone. Help. How do you get through meetings that lasts for (an) hour(s)??

Anyway, last weekend one of my best friends got engaged! I am SO excited. I knew it was coming but I didn’t know when. It’s going to be a long engagement seeing how he’s going to be in the Caribbean for school. Eep!

I saw this on Pinterest … and yes. It sunk in.

Busy Fun Week + Halloweekend!

Craptastic. I wrote this whole thing ready to publish
and then Live Writer goes haywire on me!

I’ll try to make this go like it was suppose to.
This was suppose to be like last week’s post since y’all liked it so much
but this would probably mean once a week post …
I don’t know how I feel about that yet.

Monday:

Taylor Swift’s album RED dropped.
Better believe it’s been played five billion times already.

Tuesday:

IMG_20121023_214731

Pumpkins were carved!
Lauren F. and I went over to Mallory’s and I carved my very first pumpkin.
Check off my Bucket List! It was oooey gooey and I loved it.
Guess which one is mine! Sadly ours got super moldy in like two days. 😦

Wednesday:

Michelle’s going away dinner at Chuy’s with Stephanie.
Michelle is the new Lufkin reporter!
Cannot wait to see her new place!
She’s going to make it big one day!
The only picture of us three from that night … sorry.

Thursday:

Alyssa’s friend, Erin K.,
posted about Painting with a Twist
for a Cause … Relay for Life.
Hello, I’m all down for that. I threw in the big bucks and went!

IMG_20121025_215048

I had a lot of fun.
Freaked out a lot thinking this is gonna be one ugly painting
but it came out pretty okay.

The people in the class were hilarious and fun to be around.
They were acting like little kids and Erin and I were the youngest ones there!
I’m already wanting to go back …

IMG_20121025_221249

I baked for the coworkers that night regardless of how late it was.
We’ve been having a sluggish week at work.

Friday:

IMG_20121026_235847

After work nothing happened at all.
I’m pretty sure I slept for a good 20 hours. Jk.
I slept for 3 hours and painted this thing in less than however long Despicable Me is.
It’ll get better with more practice … hopefully.

Saturday:

20121027_152022

Sally Hansen stick on nail things.
Sent on accident but got to keep!
Worked well with my costume: Skulls with pink glittery background.
Note to self and everyone else … put on a top coat.

IMG_20121027_190624

Mallory’s birthday … plus Halloweekend!
Baked her a cake then headed to her place
where I met all her friends from college
who were watching the aTm game.
I drank out of an aTm cup to fit in …

230574_1008700748313_7581_nIMG_20121028_110543

I hadn’t celebrated her birthday with her since were where both seniors in high school.
Us then (graduation rehearsal).
Us now (last night).
We definitely look nothing like we use to …

And now just pictures from the night.

No matter what went down this has got to be one of my favorite Halloweekends ever.
I had a lot of fun.
One of the best Houston downtown nightlife experience as well.
Thanks Mal!

After such a fulfilling week
it’s gonna be a little sad going to my regularly scheduled days.
Hopefully I can still have some fun.

Have a great week ahead!

Wild Wing Cafe

Yesterday started out like any other Friday. Work.

But Fridays are usually different in people are more chill. Osvaldo, Tony C., Shelly and I chit chatted for a little bit while nibbling on a cookies that Shelly brought. They made fun of my language. LAME.

Then we went back to our workload. Osvaldo came after lunch and we chit chatted a little more. It was nice reminiscing about the old days. We tend to do that. He even sent a picture of himself when he first started lifting. His scrawny days from when I first met him. I laughed so hard. He definitely looks different.

20120907_175250

Upon leaving, I came home and took a nice hour nap. Then took Rocky to the vet for his shots. He has such a pointy nose. And a little crazy when he sees other doggies. He gets too dang excited.

Then I went home and got ready to meet Michelle and later Mallory at Wild Wing Cafe. Michelle wanted to do dinner and catch up and Mallory knew the guy that was going to play in a band there. So win win. They didn’t know each other but they do now.

We sat upstairs … the non-smoking area plus our view. Very nice. And I ordered a Blue Moon. YUM.

Big Fat Fries [crispy wedge cut fries] | $3.29

If you haven’t known, I love fries … And oh my gosh, so happy I got to try these. The ranch isn’t even necessary it was so dang good! A MUST TRY!

20120907_211237

Single Order [10 wings, two flavors, served with 1 dip & celery] | $10.29

I got the flavors wild west and medium. And I loved it. Their wings are super greasy like say Buffalo Wild Wings which is why I love them even more because it’s more on the crispy side like Wing Stop.

IMG_20120907_223416

Best picture of us … Michelle, Me, Mallory.

The night was great also because in the beginning I got to talk to Michelle one on one. Then Mallory came and we all chilled a little, Michelle left, and I got to talk one on one with Mallory. It was a pretty great night. Also because of this …

20120907_233611

When Michelle left, Mallory and I moved downstairs to the bar. Do you see what we saw? Other than Mallory’s friend, Clinton, up on stage, there’s a girl sitting on a guy’s lap. Let’s just say they were acting a little inappropriate if you catch my drift.

IMG_20120907_230611

My Guinness and Mallory’s Vodka and Club Soda. We had these x2. Yum. I love foam on my beers!

I had a great time at Wild Wing Cafe and the food is actually really good. I would come back here for the fries for sure.

And today’s been a super lazy day. I stayed home all day. Snooze.

Hope y’all are having a good weekend!
