Getting Fatter

I’ve been M.I.A. and I’m not sorry. Family came and I’d rather spend it with them since I never see them. You’ll be able to see what we did down below which is mostly eating. Bah …

TUESDAY:

Lunch with contractor company at the Omni Hotel. YUM!

Happy hour after work with Mallory, Stephen, Samantha and a nice reunion with Judith. It’s been forever but it was nice seeing her.

WEDNESDAY:

At work. Our playground. Taking a break from working on our presentation that will be on this upcoming Wednesday. Eeks.

THURSDAY:

Mary Kay party with Mallory, Judith, Maggie, Mallory’s sister and mum, and her friend from soccer. I bought a few things that ended up being in the 80s. Whoops. Hopefully it’s worth it. Never thought I’d feel like a grownup until I bought expensive crap.

The question asked what kind of eyes I have … and Asian was a choice. Too funny. And might be a little racist …

FRIDAY:

Anvil Bar & Refuge
1424 Westheimer Rd.
Houston, TX 77006
(713) 523-1622
www.anvilhouston.com

Went with brother and Tammy, and met up with Jenny and her new beau.

Boilermaker [1/2 pint of beer & paired spirit] | $8

It wasn’t bad. But I wouldn’t get this again.

Campari Popcorn | $5

It’s popped to order and Jenny and I were very excited for this … but when we ate a bite we wanted to throw up. Campari is apparently a type of liquor and once you it it you feel your taste buds turn bitter. Bleugh! Brother threw some limes on there and it helped.

Pork Belly Taco, Pickles, Ranch Dressing Cole Slaw | $8

Holy yum … get this whenever you land in anvil. So good. I wish there was more than 3 mini tacos on the plate though.

This place is unique with the way they make their drinks. So many different kinds. I really liked the Montebello (?) Tammy got … I would definitely get that instead next time!

88 Boiling Crawfish & Seafood
1910 Wilcrest Dr.
Houston, TX 77042
(713) 789-8288

Boudin, fries, crabs, crawfish, oysters … and so much more. It’s like Boiling Crab but better. Next time I’m getting two pounds of crawfish and boudin. Oh my boudin. They have happy hour in where their crawfish is a dollar off a pound. So amazing. I hope not many people find out about it because I love that it wasn’t packed!

After this we watched The Internship. Such a good funny movie. Go watch it if you haven’t.

SATURDAY:

Went shopping at the outlet for forever and spent over $80 … whoops.

Came home and had Korean BBQ as celebration for Father’s Day. Mmm …

Oreo Cake … too good.

Played The Game of Things with brother, Tammy, and Jenny and her beau came over. Too much laughter. Love this game. We stayed up til 2am playing. We are ridiculous.

SUNDAY:

Kublai Khan
20940 Katy Freeway
Katy, TX 77449
(281) 398-3658

This place is better than Genghis Grill … in they give you more noodles/rice than GG. Won my heart. I want to go back already.

Brother, Tammy, and Jenny went back to Dallas along with Pluto and Krypto. Now I’m all alone.

Sad life. But love the time I had with them. We ate so much but now that everyone’s gone I’m able to stop eating out as much.

Whoo … long post. Good night.

Playing Hooky

Mmm … OOIAJ is seriously back in my life.

Picture0279

See what’s behind me? Blankets and pillows. All Jenny’s. She’s still sleeping in the living room. I would too but for some reason, my bed keeps calling my name.Embarrassed smile

I have decided to not go to class today. That’s the reason for the glasses and gross hair. It’s just one class so … it shouldn’t matter, right?

I have decided it’ll be my catch up day. Read my chapters because there is just so much!

But right now, I’m watching 40 Most Shocking Breakups on VH1 and catching up on my Google Reader. I didn’t even know half of these people aren’t together anymore. Ridiculous.

I wish there were no divorces, like how it was back in the days. You are set with that person … forever. That’s probably the reason I’m afraid of commitment.

Whoops. Did I just say that to the world?

Chivalry Is Not Dead

Do you hear that? It’s me crying.

This morning I checked Living Social as I do everyday (along with Groupon) and saw the deal for Whole Foods.

whole

I went to pull out my wallet but realized I forgot it back home! So I was like, you know, I can get this later.

Well I was wrong as wrong as can be. When I got home. This stared back at me.

I have lost my chance so now I am crying like a baby. Someone share with me?

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

Last night before bed, I made me and Jenny OOIAJ. Well hers was more along the lines of OOIAC since she didn’t have a jar.

She’s never had it before so hopefully she liked what I made her. I would ask her but right now she’s sprawled on the couch taking a nap. If she doesn’t like it, at least I tried, eh?

For some reason, our apartment has been hot so we slept in the living room. Her on the couch and me on the floor. It’s kind of scary when you’re watching Ghost Whisperer. It’s super dark and you see shadows EVERYWHERE!

Sadly, when I did go to sleep on the floor, the carpet itched me terribly so I slept in my room, on my bed instead. I rather sweat then itch all over.

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

Today the shuttles were crowded. So crowded that the bus driver couldn’t stop by the other two stops to pick people up.

There was this guy that was already sitting in his seat, looked up at me and said,

Do you want my seat?

I politely declined. And he made sure I was for sure okay with it.

Who does that nowadays?

No one really. It’s pretty much me, me, me. I want this and I want that.

So he made me see that not everyone are jerks. That there are some nice people around.

That chivalry is not dead.

I’m not saying that if you don’t give up your seat, you’re a jerk. But that there are people out there still that are gentlemen.

I’m old fashion. I like when a guy holds a door for me or say please and thank you. It’s polite. It’s what I learned growing up. But it seems to me, it’s dying.

Don’t worry men. I’m not only saying negatives about your race. It’s the same for women too.

I just wish the world was a better place. That people are polite.

I would love a knight in shining armor, please!

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

Someone made me cry today. Like really cry. Not the kind of crying I did for Whole Foods. She was being rude to me always and I couldn’t take it anymore.

But I got free Pappasito’s from the CPE so I feel better now.

Time to study. I am so behind!

Best Friday All Summer

I’ve been eating a lot of OOIAJ. Seriously … if you were to have asked me back last month if I would like eating oats, my answer would be “NO WAY JOSE!”

IMG_4858

My favorite is simply vanilla yogurt, milk, oats, pb, a little Nutella, and a lot of blueberries. YUM!

Yesterday I got to work and finished the project that I was assigned. Whooooo! Surprised smile

Michelle H. came in and we talked about America’s debt. I wished the government took time out to see who they’re giving money to. There are people out there that cheat the government. There are some college kids who take financial aid and loans and use it for vacations or buy things they don’t need instead of school. There are women and men who can fully well work but chose not to and ask for food stamps. Some even have a billion kids so that they can get even more welfare. I think that is ridiculous. That is why we’re in debt people. If the government works harder to see who really needs it, they won’t be that much in debt as they are. That’s my two cents. End of rant.Steaming mad

Then Rose, kid Karen, and baby Katherine came to visit the office. I left from work early at 1pm to go to lunch with them. Cheddar’s! Yum!!

Karen is such a delight. I love her! I was sad when we all had to leave. But a little happy I didn’t have to had back to the office.

Later that night I went over to Michelle’s house. (A different Michelle than Michelle H. … just to be clear.Winking smile) Her house is amazing like I’ve said before. This time I have pictures of their movie theater room!

IMG_4863

They have four recliners!! Five counting the one on the side by itself. From left to right is Michelle, Nicole, and Stephanie. Inside that closet are loads and loads of DVDs, home videos, and devices where you can buy movies instantly and watch them! SO jealous!

IMG_4864

They even had a popcorn machine! How cool is that?! Michelle’s dad came up and made us some. Thanks Mister Reed!

IMG_4869

So freaking dang cute! And so freaking dang good! There’s a separator at the bottom so all the kernels that didn’t pop would fall through. So dang genius!

Like my nail?! I painted a old school pink then the shatter polish on top. I really like them. I want to get other shatter colors now. Addicted? Guess so!

IMG_4866

Look at that dang screen! So big! (I need to stop saying dang!)

Don’t worry. We didn’t watch Insidious. I told them to never invite me over if they were ever to chose a scary movie.Crying face I would pee my pants and maybe a little more than pee if you catch my drift.Smile with tongue out

Limitless where you take a pill and you can do things you never thought you could.

Pretty much my summary of the movie. I loved it and Bradley Cooper makes it that much better. The ending when he speaks Chinese .. kind of butchers the whole movie for me. But still good.

IMG_4860IMG_4870

Meet Jake, the lab. Meet Tigger, the tabby cat. And meet Dexter, the grey kitty. All animals in Michelle’s house. So cute!

When I got home a little over 1am, I watched another movie before bed.

My Future Boyfriend: Barry Watson’s character travels back in time from year 3000 something to ask a writer questions about what love, passion, sex, etc. is since in their year, there is no such thing.

Barry Watson is so cute. I loved him from 7th Heaven. Sara Rue lost a lot of weight. She used to be on a show called Popular. Anyway, this was a cute movie about traveling back in the future finding love, etc. I watched this off Netflix if anyone’s interested.

I think I can say this Friday was the best Friday all summer!Open-mouthed smile

Random Things During My Day

Breakfast was delicious this morning.

Mmm Peanut butter straight out of the jar.

Just kidding! It’s Overnight OIAJ! I didn’t have milk this time so the oatmeal was a little more hard than soft. Oh well. It was still delicious.

Who else eats breakfast at the workplace?

I like to eat and work at the same time, which I know is bad because I don’t enjoy my foods as much but seriously, I can’t do just one thing.

Green socks with my Sperry’s! So classy at work. I rarely wear the same type of socks so this was surprising to me. Guess sleeping 3 hours makes me more put together.

As always, we had free food at the break room. It was Chinese like this time. Potstickers, white rice, orange dyed rice (don’t know what was going on there), greens, chicken, etc.

I got six potstickers. I already ate some as you can tell before taking the picture. They were DELICIOUS. I have no clue where they bought this but can they order here more often?!

As I was driving home, I saw a lot of clouds. But look how sunny it was!! So freaking hot! Plus I really like this picture.

Then it started to rain while the sun was still shining bright. What is going on Mother Nature? Couldn’t make up your mind?!

Anyway, I got home today, took a ten minute nap then went out to see Amanda. You will hear more about that later.

Til then, it’s time to rest because tomorrow’s Friday!!

Overnight Oats In A Jar

I have never been in love with oatmeal.

Actually, I hate oats.

But, I took the plunge and made Overnight Oats in a Jar!

Harsh light in my picture. Wahh … oh well.

Overnight Oats In A Jar

Ingredients:

  • Almost empty jar of spread
  • Rolled oats
  • yogurt
  • milk
  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • peanut butter

Preparation:

  1. Put rolled oats, yogurt, milk, and peanut butter (I didn’t have enough left over spread in my jar) into the almost empty jar of spread.
  2. Put into fridge overnight.
  3. Add Honey Nut Cheerios, blueberries, and strawberries on top.
  4. Eat.

I added a little bit of chocolate syrup because I always wanted to squirt some of that on something.

Ba-ba-ba-berries!

It was so delicious! Sadly the bottom didn’t get much taste. It tasted too much of cardboard (oatmeal) but I think if there’s more Pralinutta on the bottom, I think it’ll be a different story. Plus, it kept me full for hours. Sweet!!

Rocky is so lazy!

I got to work on a lot of things today. So great getting to sleep in. No work Fridays for the win!

I just got done with my C25K: Week 8! Same Run as Monday and Wednesday.

Felt good. I went on the treadmill again. Decided to give it another chance.

This time instead of just listening to music, I put on Netflix on my iTouch.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Let’s just say this show is getting boring but I feel I have to stick it through. Sad? Yes, I’m a sad person.

Anyway, the run went faster than expected. Guess running on the treadmill is okay as long as I have something better to do.

Now I’m running late – no pun intended. Got to get ready and head over to Michelle‘s house.

Hope you guys are enjoying y’all’s Friday! 🙂

P.S. I changed up my page layout. Hopefully it’ll be the last for a while.
