TGIF

Seriously.

It’s been a long week.

On Wednesday I went to a painting class with Mallory and Samantha. I’m not a fan of my artwork this time around so … no pictures. Maybe one day. Maybe I’ll fix it up first or something. We’ll see.

It’s time to just relax and do NOTHING. *sigh*

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Much Needed Thursday Night

It’s been a very stressful couple of weeks. But getting this from Bossman made it a little better. And the people around me … thank you listening.

Samantha came and picked me up and we met up with Mallory at:

Ceramics By Tess
402 W Grand Pkwy
Katy, TX 77494
(281) 392-3161
www.ceramicsbytess.com

Love this place. Look at the little ceramics being made!!

Samantha’s a teacher so she picked one that had an apple so she can put pens/pencils in. Mallory chose a skull. She LOVES skulls! I chose a t-shirt. Inside I can fill it with my makeup brushes. I love the way they all came out and I hope we can go again! I love doing stuff like this!

Afterward we walked over to Time Square to play bowling. Free game and pizza!! Yay!! We bought everything else. My stomach now feels bleugh from all the greasy foods.

Weekend is here and I wouldn’t want it to start any other way. I had so much fun. Love them so much! Happy Friday tomorrow guys! We made it!

[2013] 014/365: Owl Be Damned

Oh my gosh … it’s only day 14 and I already feel drained with this 365. How do people do this?!

Just an F.Y.I. I’m trying out this whole watermark thing to see how it goes. I feel bad not doing it to my old posts but it’s never too late right?

Mallory, Samantha, and I bought a Groupon to:

Merlot 2 Masterpiece
12464 Memorial Drive
Houston, TX 77024

Here is us with our masterpieces.

We picked owls … obviously.

And a close up of my owl.

In the end I wasn’t a big fan of this place. The 2-hour class ended up being almost 3-hours. The instructions weren’t very well dictated and I couldn’t even see what she was doing half the time. I understand that you paint it how YOU want it but If I have to stand up every few minutes to see where she is in the painting then that’s too much work done on my end. The paint didn’t stick well to the canvas either and they expected us to paint the background with a tiny brush. We weren’t too amused by it.

Will I come back here again? Yeah, I guess. I believe in giving second chances with this kind of stuff so hopefully next time it’ll be a better experience.

Afterward, Samantha and I went to go see Identity Thief at Alamo Drafthouse.

Worst service ever! The server did everything wrong. I guess it just wasn’t our day.

The movie was freaking hilarious though. I laughed A LOT! I know critics said it was good but uh … not everyone loves the same thing. That’s all I have to say.

It’s been a fun day seeing the Powerpuffs again.

Can’t wait for our next adventure!

Jared, Painting, Red Dawn, 5k Race

Got to see Jared last night. Gave me a tour of his apartment, had a beer or two and talked, showed me something he’s working on … music wise, then went to Cane’s for dinner. Sometimes some friendships just work. I’ve only seen him one other time in 5 years and that was a good month or so ago. Love when you’re able to just talk. It’s kind of funny actually. Back when we were in high school I was the talker and he would listen and only talked when he felt necessary. Our roles are reversed now. I’m more reserved and he’s more outgoing. It works. Surprising how 5 years can change a person.

Mum tied a bow around Rocky’s head … he’s Roxie now.

Painted this weird swirly tree at 12am.

Watched Red Dawn with the Aunt at Alamo Drafthouse.
One of the best movies.
Chris Hemsworth. That is all.

The sky during my 5k Run.

I used this run as my 5k Race time for the virtual Gobbler Gallop For The Love of The Kids. 00:47:31. Time might suck for y’all real runners but it’s better than I thought. Especially since I started running again 2 weeks and 2 days ago … and skipping 3 of my scheduled running days due to going to San Antonio. Yes I know. No excuses so to me I’m just happy I finished. Fracture is a little twingy but other than that I feel great.

Tonight is baking time and prepping for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Dinner. Eeep!!

And hopefully in the morning I’ll be able to go to 24 hour Fitness and try out the Yoga-lates class. Yay for 3 day passes! 🙂

Hope you’re all having a great Thanksgiving Eve! ❤

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.

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.

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!

Dogs, Wine, and Random Things

Jenny and I have had Krypto all semester pretty much. Sadly, he’ll be leaving us next semester so that we can focus on our studies more since we should both be graduating.

2011-11-21 00.08.54

Super blurry ugly picture I just took. Smile

But Jenny and I always make it a habit to go to PetLand once in a while.

Last Saturday, we went. Look who we found!

2011-11-12 14.22.49

Look at him all chill and stuff.

He’s a Shiba Inu. A dog Jenny and I have been wanting since the end of time. We go crazy when we see one.

Sadly they cost as much as $1300 if not more.

We bid farewell to him and went home.

Later that night, Jenny wanted to open her bottle of wine. We don’t own a corkscrew so she went and YouTubed a video a while back and saw a method of opening it.

You can open a wine bottle with a shoe?!

 

We also saw that you can open it with a book … we tried that method first. (These pictures aren’t the best ….)

2011-11-12 21.55.582011-11-12 21.59.37

The book method. The book on the table is not the same as the one Jenny’s holding. It was too heavy for her. Winking smile

2011-11-12 22.01.452011-11-12 22.07.59

The book method failed us. So we went and used the shoe method … then changed and used the towel method. Pretty much it all involved us pounding it against the wall.

2011-11-12 22.09.44

She resulted in knifing that in the end. Yet we still couldn’t get it to work.

We had to go over to the guys for help. (Funny story: They heard the pounding and thought someone was trying to break into someone’s house! haha)

Travis and I laughed while Jenny and A.V. tried hard to get that cork INTO the bottle instead of out just so they could taste that wine.

Let’s just say … too much pressure so it sprayed everywhere. But Jenny got her wine!

On Wednesday Katrina and I hung out a little before a benefit night.

2011-11-14 16.45.31

Don’t know if you can make out the words on the floor. It says “Kat” and “Mel”. Teehee

2011-11-16 18.22.17

We went to Walgreens so she could print out some pictures. While we waited, we walked around. Uhh what are these? Weird looking … scary, actually, is more like it.

2011-11-16 18.20.28

We also came across this. Is this really what kids are playing nowadays?! “Monster High”? Sounds about right … it looks like she’s holding a marijuana fan … horrible. Plus, look at the clothes she’s wearing … or not wearing. And her sickly skinny figure shows kids what the society wants them to look like. HORRIBLE!

2011-11-17 22.41.58

On Thursday I finally finished the week off strong. No more projects or presentations so I spent time with Jenny and her friend and painted while watching The Country Network. So Fun!

A very random post for a very busy week. Smile
