Reunion with Joanne!

Two days ago, I spent more unnecessary money. How you ask?

It all began with me cleaning my room and finding a coupon to Sephora. Went to that site and browsed for the longest time. Picked my items. And when I went to check out I typed in the promotional code to realize it didn’t work. Why?

Because it has already expired. I am one smart cookie. Let me tell you. So I still went ahead and bought the items because I just really REALLY really wanted them. And now I am wanting to buy even more.

Today I finally got to see one of my best friends from high school, Joanne. The last time I saw her was 2 years ago which was before this blog … yep time sure flies. She’s two years younger than me so she’s still in college but oh boy. Our conversations just went.

As I was driving to meet up at Starbucks, I realized she was in the car next to me. That’s how crazy it is.

I seem to have some pretty good friends I can just talk to like nothing’s ever changed and those are the most prized friendships. We talked about school and work – fine I won’t lie … it was mostly about boys.

We’ve both grown so much. She’s much more outgoing and I’m more shy. Funny how that worked out. We flipped flopped. I am so excited that we got to spend THREE hours just talking. If she was a man, I would say our date went really well and there will be another one. Who am I kidding she’s a girl and it still went well and there will be more. We talked till we were hungry and ended up at Panera Bread. We are crazy ducks and oh boy so many memories.

Now it’s time to get ready for bed!

Work in the A.M. and New Orleans in the weekend! Can hardly wait. Fly fly away!

Too Much Food

IMG_20121110_131650

Been writing music again.
Not sure what to do with them though.
But it helps me when I go through things
Or when I’m bored.

IMG_20121110_204526

Been training for my 5k and had an ice bath for the feet.
As long as I finish, I don’t mind the time.
But hopefully I’ll finish before 45 minutes.

IMG_20121111_134001

Did you know they make these for dogs?
Ribs, Sausage, & Chicken Drumstick lookalikes.
Cute.

IMG_20121111_183133

One of the bestest foods ever.
Dumpling with soup in it.
Xiao Long Bao. Go try it.

IMG_20121111_195826

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pretzel Bars from scratch.
For the potluck at work …

IMG_20121112_125419

That had a mile long of food.
1/2 a mile of desserts.
Jk … but really.

Starbucks with some coworkers after Potluck.
Thanks Bossman.
Sat and talked for a good 30 mins or so.
Fun stuff cuz work was over for me by then. 😉

IMG_20121112_152751

Went to the eye doctor who gave me all this stuff … for free.
And because she knew I was a recent college grad,
I didn’t have to pay for some images I had to take for the eyes.
Thanks doc.

IMG_20121112_180202

Always the best for last.
The view on the drive home.
Love getting to work by 5am
So I can go home early.
No cars.

Cannot wait for Thursday!
It’s gonna be a good weekend!

I Love Hockey

Poodle Cats … have you ever heard of such?
Well there is and I want that one in the picture.

IMG_20121108_221032

What did I cross off my bucket list?
Going to a Hockey Game.
NHL is on a lockout so the minors still count.
Thanks Mallory & Lauren F. for going with me!
Our favorite part? Checking out the guys through the internet. Teehee.
And watching them slam into the pixie glass.
#31 Matt Hackett 😉
If you look at the second picture in that collage you’ll see a penis bell.
Sorry … it was funny.
Hope one day I get to go to a NHL game!

IMG_20121108_234745

I finally changed my own guitar strings!
Last time I tried it popped in my face and I got scared of it.
But I did it!! *Pat on back* 🙂

Carmel Brulee Frap from Starbucks
Too sweet but quite good.

IMG_20121109_131430

While driving I saw this.
Makes me miss high school and college.
Prank wars were so much fun.

IMG_20121109_193737

Went grocery shopping with Mum & June and saw this.
WTF!

Hope your weekend started out amazing!

Spoiled Coworkers

 

IMG_20121107_112359

I entered in Hollie’s coffee a day contest. I don’t mind if I don’t win.
I was just wondering what category Starbucks Wanna Be would be under.
Hence the face and the confused teddy bear. I got this coffee for free at work. Buy 9 get 1 free.
They only serve a few off the menu. No seasonal or anything. Better than nothing?

IMG_20121107_193322

I baked some Peanut Butter Cookies for the coworkers tonight.
They are super spoiled … obviously.
They smell super delicious and I kinda don’t wanna share.

Tomorrow is my Friday! AND I get to cross something off my bucket list.
You’ll hear about that tomorrow. Can’t wait to share!
Happy Thursday y’all!
Stay Positive and Thank Good Thoughts!

Nom Nom Noodles

I’ve been a bit lagged on Google Reader. Whoopsies. I’ll get there. I always do.

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

A few days ago some of my coworkers and I went to:

Nom Nom Noodles
1635 Eldridge Pkwy Ste 400
Houston, TX 77077
(281) 497-602

20120911_11291520120911_113046

Vermicelli Combo aka Bun Dac Biet [combination of grilled pork & chicken vermicelli rice noodles served with house sauce, green onions, lettuce, pickled carrots, pickled daikon, bean sprouts, cucumbers, carrots, & crushed peanuts} | $7.79

Additional $1.99 for a choice of one eggroll or one spring roll plus a fountain drink …

Which I wished I knew because I would not have taken that. I don’t like soda much and that spring roll looked a little sad. Yeah, this place is good if I want Pho close to work … but I’ve had better. My coworkers thought it tasted pretty darn good though. Guess it was just mine that was not up to par.

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

Today started out a little different …

IMG_20120913_075527

So gorgeous. The light shining through would be lighting and I love that the moon was just chilling up above. Surprisingly no rain came down the whole drive to work. And it reminded me of Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away:

“Dry lightning cracks across sky
Those storm clouds gather in her eyes …”

Pretty obsessed with this song right now. Sad song though.

I made today an FTK day. Natural lighting aka florescent lights with an exposure value of +2.0 makes for some pretty pictures. Glowing! Haven’t wore my FTK polo in so long. I heard a lot of things about FTK from various people that are still in it and it seems a lot has changed. I wonder how it’s been. Guess I’ll be able to see when I go visit toward the end of the month.

Upon going with some of my coworkers to buy coffee … Venti Caramel Macchiato, a friend/old coworker told me to meet her downstairs by the elevator. She surprised me with a Tall Pumpkin Spice Latte. My first one ever and I loved it!

You would think a girl that doesn’t drink a lot of coffee would be wide awake … false. Coffee doesn’t do anything to me but make me pee like a horse.

source: not sure where she got this but I’m sure it was on Facebook …

A friend of mine sent me this. Ahh … makes me wish I was still in SA. And it’s nice I’m still thought of. Cannot wait to see her toward the end of the month as well!

The puppy I would like to have. So cute!

Please let me know where I can get him!

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

Remember that one time I went to go give blood and they messed up? Well I went back in to give blood again, passed all the tests and got told I couldn’t give blood because the last time I did it, they took too much RBCs so now my body doesn’t have enough RBCs and I will have to wait til December.

Disappointed.

And what’s worse is Mallory and I scheduled our appointment together to hang out. Needless to say I went home and left her there. I was too sad to stay and watch everyone give blood.

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

Day off tomorrow and I have a list of errands to run. Weee!

TGTBLIG!

Random Crap Wednesday? HA

**Thanks for all the thoughts y’all! Brother had a really horrible stomach bug which made him dehydrated but he’s feeling much better. Thank goodness!**

I was in a meeting yesterday and I was SO lost. Everyone’s been there for at least 3 months if not more so they’re already use to everything. I’m only starting to learn. I’m hoping I get the hang of it soon. I don’t like being out of the loop. I think I did better at today’s meeting though. I understood a lot more so that made me happy.

IMG_20120821_193024

My pretty journal filled with my notes! Look at the pretty design! They made it look like wood and they even made the indentions and everything so it feels like it! Love my new journal!

IMG_20120822_202232

My snack drawer at work. Sadly (not sadly?) I don’t really dig in there like everyone else does with their snack drawers. I probably eat like two fruit snack packs a week. Everything else just sits there. Anyone else have a snack drawer?

IMG_20120821_193805

Here’s a picture of Jakob’s lizard for no reason. hehe Poor lizard is crippled though and slither everywhere. Makes me sad but he’s still so dang cute!

I caught up with Colin and Ashley K. last night on Facebook. It’s pretty nice to talk to someone you haven’t seen in 5/6 years. And they both seem to be doing fine. Colin’s in law school and Ashley’s looking for a better job and has a wonderful fiancé that treats her well. Love hearing good news. Price even checked up on me today! Love that they can talk to me and I can talk to them so easily even if I can’t share my things in depth, it’s still great to talk to them regardless because I get to know them better than before!

IMG_20120822_174125

I even got to see Mallory tonight at Starbucks! And got to talk a bit just because. It’s wonderful seeing her more now. Especially when we’ve planned it, it makes me have something to look forward to. I’ve missed her. I can tell her so much stuff and most of the time it’s stupid random crap but she doesn’t care. At least I don’t think she does … She said she will be searching for my blog because I won’t give away the name. And if she finds it: HI MALLORY! If not then hehehehehe Winking smile

IMG_20120822_192644

It was real sweet weather today. Sitting outside Starbucks and chilling with Mallory. Cannot wait for winter. Love the cold and pretty clothes that come with it!

We got through Hump Day y’all! Two more days!! Then it’s the weekend. I cannot wait to go to the Pet Shelter Friday after work! Eeep. Eeep. Eeep!
