I have internet again. Hallelujah! My Feedly is over 400 posts. I’ve been making my way as much as I can but … you know how it goes.

My birthday is coming up this Monday so tomorrow night (Friday night) I’ll be celebrating with some peeps.

Doing anything fun this weekend?

Happy Friday! Stay Positive & Think Good Thoughts!

Pictures from the past few days …. Enjoy!

Sunday afternoon.
Beautiful day … waiting for Samantha.
Love those little lights strung up on the tree.

Loved every second of it.
Go watch.

Look at that tongue!

Two of my coworkers found my blog.
That’s Tony C. … he wanted to be in it.
Zuco was the other one who found it.
I trust that you both will not tell anyone!

Pretty Chill Day

Here’s an update on the giveaway. Since I’m busy all day tomorrow, I won’t be able to pick anyone until super late tomorrow (Thursday)/super early (Friday). Sorry for having to do this but I don’t want to be tied down because of blogging. But hey … it’s a good suspense right? Plus it’s not like I’m running away with the goodies. Forgive me.

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

Anyway, today was a total opposite of yesterday. TOTAL OPPOSITE.

Yesterday I was so confuzzled and today I was so relaxed. I mean, I still had a lot of stuff to do but I think knowing I was going to see certain people later in the day just made everything float and go by faster.

Breakfast: the most important meal of the day. Yogi Green Tea Energy with very wise words as usual. One of the reasons I love them so much. With a side of avocado and PB2 on wheat with chia seeds. YUM. My coworkers think it’s super weird I eat avocados with toast … and peanut butter. Whatever. They don’t know what’s good.

One of them also said my PB2 smelled like his farts …… gross. They do not.

Giving credit where credit is due: After a long day I just wanted to jet outta there but right when I was about to exit my workplace (good few feet away), I get stopped. Can’t wait for this new parking lot! I sat there in the car for a good 20 minutes until I u-turned and went the opposite way. It was very peaceful and really made me thankful for those that do stuff like this. They don’t get enough credit. I’m glad it’s not super hot yet but once summer hits … oy vey.

Something New: Sissy came home at the right time today. I get the mail when I come home and there were three packages waiting for me. It was like Christmas. I swear the mailman thinks we’re rich …

Sissy got her goodies. Mum got hers. And I got mine.

My first corduroy pants (upon other things). Dark purple with funky pattern. Sorry for my fat thighs. I love ‘em but I don’t know what to wear them with sooo they’ll probably just sit in my closet. $9.60 + 30% off … cheapest pants ever!

Happy Hour: The thing I looked forward too all week. I say all week because tomorrow is my Friday.

I finally invited Jared to Happy Hour with me, Mallory, and Samantha. I also invited Lauren F. and then it became an inviting fest and we ended up with eight people total! I would say the first integration went pretty well. All girls except two guys but I don’t think they mind. I had a lot of fun with them all and it’s great to see everyone flowing together. *sigh*

Sometimes you just gotta see certain people that brighten up your week. It makes life much more worth living.

Bingo tomorrow. I cannot wait.

Birthday Celebration Galore

Don’t forget about my giveaway!! Over on Wednesday!

Last night was pretty cahrazy! Lots of birthday celebrations. One of the best nights I’ve had in a long while.

IMG_20130324_031703

First started with going to my Uncle G’s house for his birthday celebration. We had a crawfish boil. Omg. Craving has been fulfilled. I could of done with a few more pounds though.

20130323_180830

Their kitty cat. Pretty evil one. Was a stray and they took him in. He doesn’t like people.

20130323_180913

Their neighbor’s kitty. Very loving and LOVES to be petted. He wanted crawfish. 😉

I jetted out of there once I shoveled a piece of birthday cake in my mouth. I had to change and jet off to another birthday celebration.

My coworker, Tony C., was celebrating his birthday with his family and had invited me. I knew his two cousins, Osvaldo and Zuco, since we all worked together as well. Plus, they talked about their family so much, I felt I knew them all!

I had to skip out on Top Golf since I was at my Uncle’s but they were going out to Wild West and I was all down for that!

I seriously had one of the best nights I’ve ever had in a long time. They are seriously so much fun. Never a dull moment and lots of laughter was shared.

Oh … and a hot bartender, Tylor (I think that’s how you spell it …), made it an even funner night. I got to take a pic with him but all the photos are on another phone. Boo.

I am not ready for work. So tired. But this week I have some pretty awesome plans. Can’t wait!

I. Am. Excited.

San Antonio towards the end of this week to see some friends. At least I hope we’re friends, else me going there would be pointless.

How am I going to concentrate at work?!

Maybe some of this to pass time?

IMG_20120921_101359IMG_20120921_102904

But hopefully none of this …

IMG_20120920_160417

But a whole lot of this:

IMG_20120918_071459 (1)

I’ve always known about Yogi Tea but I never tried it … until now when I had a coupon for Vitacost. LOVE THAT PLACE SITE!

A crazy idea came into my head since Yogi is always so inspirational. What if price tags for things you want were actually acts of kindnesses and you have to do that act of kindness to get what you want. Just think how wonderful the world would be with people doing something nice for others for a change.

But yeah, with these things, work should just fly by. And I’ll get to San Antonio before I know it!

IMG_20120922_185457

Anyway, last night we did another Korean BBQ. Outside with nature. This time we were more ready for it. Mum said it’ll be last time for a while. I hope not. It’s so delicious! And did I mention … ALL PALEO! So easy!

Trader Joe’s is popping up everywhere in Texas now and I haven’t gone to a single one. Something’s definitely wrong. Maybe I can drag Mum with me one day soon.

I did all my workouts this week … barely! But I feel like I need to plan out my workouts more intricately else I get a little lazy. So I’ll be off doing that, laundry, and cleaning for the rest of my Sunday.

Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Think Good Thoughts!

A Whole Lotta Pictures

IMG_20120917_171423

A glimpse of one of the buildings at my workplace. I love it here.

I wake up, go to work, come home, work out, then lose myself in the web, a good book, a magazine, or a television show. Sometimes if I’m lucky I get a phone call or a skype call from friends in SA. Seriously … that doesn’t even sound busy but to me I feel like I haven’t slept in ages.

I blame the whole not having enough red blood cells because the blood center took too much due to the machine failing to give me back what I need therefore making me tired. Run on sentence? I’m too tired to fix it.

Right now I’m watching Training Day. Never heard of the movie? It’s okay. I didn’t either until Tony C. begged everyone to watch it because apparently “it’s so d*mn good.”

20120915_130505

I went to a Korean restaurant with June and Mum last Saturday. Food was good, super expensive, but the servers were rude. I hate when that happens because now I never want to go back.

20120915_190552

Luckily we have our own type of grill at our home and since Dad wasn’t there, we went and bough some bulgogi and galbi for dinner that night so he could be in on the fun.

IMG_20120915_185324

Best. Idea. Ever. It might not look like a lot of food but there’s a tower of meat on one side and a tower of seafood on the other. And we had golden mushrooms in those little packets. We didn’t even finish everything!

Seriously … best idea ever. I asked my family to do this every weekend. It’s way cheaper and we get more food out of it. Let’s see if it happens.

20120916_011541

Did any one else eat these when they were a kid. They bring back some good memories.

And speaking of memories …

IMG_20120916_133440

I brought out my popcorn machine again. I miss it. It brings me back to college life where Jenny and I would pop popcorn almost daily as a snack or just to study with or watch movies with. I miss that apartment. And my next door neighbor, Travis, along with everyone in SA.

IMG_20120917_23204019620253

My family’s two fridges on the left. And a little funny thing on the right which makes it kind of sad. I never understood why my family has two fridges.

Hump Day tomorrow … I’m ready. This week has been going by way too slowly.

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.

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!

Pretty Scenery

I live for Mondays around 2pm. That’s the time Tony C., Philippa, and I go into BossMan’s office to get some things signed and we end up talking and laughing for a while. It’s a faceoff between Philippa and BossMan while Tony and I just watch. The little things in life are always the best.

And here are a few pics for I am tired. Enjoy!

Kathy sent me a postcard from Hong Kong.
I collect postcards so you know, if you ever want to send me one, I’d be happy. Winking smile

Kenny’s backyard. Look at the pink!

Ain’t that gorgeous?

That is all. I’m going to go watch Big Bang Theory and shop online for some jewelry. Good Night!
