Pretty sure y’all have been seeing this around the social media like every April 25th of the year. One of the best movies eva so I don’t mind.

I had a light jacket ready … but no takers. Shucks. Next year.

It’s been a tiring week. *sigh* I was so tired I actually scratched my cornea taking out my contacts. Oy vey.

It’s that time of the week!

Thankful for my roots. It’s just that simple. I love being able to speak another language. That also means I have more shows to watch which is the real reason. Win.

Thankful for Facebook. As creepy as Facebook is getting, I’m able to connect with my families in other parts of the world. With some there’s a language barrier (I can’t read/write Chinese except for easy words and they with English) but photos and Google Translate helps.

Thankful for getting every other Friday off. Having that time at the coffee shop lately … so peaceful. But even if I don’t go, it’s just peaceful knowing I don’t have to worry about work which has been stressful because of a certain B.A.B. (Big Ass Bitch).

Thankful for my sissy … because I get to have Bruno for a week next week. Yay for her having to go somewhere for a wedding! PS. Too excited for her own wedding festivities.

Thankful for my friends. Seriously knowing some of them would go out of their way to help me with something or just letting me know they’re thinking about me. Simple. Super thankful.

What are you thankful for?

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?!

And he’s not.

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

Stay Positive & Think Good Thoughts.

You Are Beautiful Just The Way You Are

I’ve been thinking about all the things I’m thankful for (not the usual Thursday). Figured with everything going on it’s necessary.

There’s a Dove “Real Beauty Sketches” Ad Campaign that I am loving. Here … watch it and love it.

What I got out of this video? Be thankful for the things you have than the things you don’t have. We might see the bad in us, but people see the good in us. That’s something we ALL have to remember. It’s hard but I hope one day it can be done so we can all be a little happier about our appearance. I know we all struggle with that.

P.S. Sissy & Brett are finally getting wedding plans figured out. Thank goodness. She definitely got the unorganized trait. Whirl-freaking-wind.

Julia & Noel’s Wedding

This past weekend was filled with reunions. Whoop! And it’s nice to see that friendships haven’t died. I mean, yeah I’ve been gone for almost one year. But it’s nice that I’m able to talk to them like I use to. Like nothing’s changed. I know I say that a lot but I’m just so thankful for it all.

IMG_20130126_000328

I was lucky enough to stay at an old friend’s place. Thanks Jane, Chris, Long & Vy!

I bought them a cake to say thank you. That fruit was delectable.

I even got to see Liliana, Marisol, Andy, Jakob, and Nayeli. We went to Kona and had a fun time just talking and making new memories.

I even got to spend one on one time with Liliana. I miss those. They always make me so happy. I can always tell her SO much. It’s crazy.

Sunday was Julia and Noel’s Wedding. Look how precious they are. The love is in their eyes.

I’ve known them since they started college. And they’ve both grown SO SO SO much. They learn from each other and no matter how far apart they are their love stays strong. They never give up when times get rough. They are the definition of love.

High school sweethearts win for this round. Wish them all the best!

They had little snacks for cocktail hour. Yum!

And an open bar … say what?! The little shot glass in the back was our souvenir. Love love love! This would be a Cinnamon Whiskey & Coke. So good!

I drove home right after the wedding. I had a lot of fun. Dancing, photo booths, seeing the two love birds finally celebrating their tying of the knot. Congratulations you two!

Since I came home super late … early Monday morning that is … I took the day off. Got manicures with Samantha and had a lunch date. We went to Ikea, got her a dining table with chairs, helped build one then went to happy hour with Mallory.

We call ourselves The Powerpuff girls. Mallory is blonde … therefore Bubbles. Samantha is a redhead … therefore Blossom. And I have black hair … therefore Buttercup.

I’ve never seen the show but I found it funny that we were like that.

Love them. I get to see them again tomorrow night! Holla!

San Antonio Wedding Trip

I’ve been at San Antonio since yesterday afternoon. And it’s so nice to catch up with people I haven’t seen in so long!

I even watched Hansel & Gretel. Watch it. Love it. I did.

The wedding’s tomorrow! Can’t wait to see everyone!

Ahhh!

I don’t want to dress up though. Hopefully it doesn’t rain or else it’s even worse.

Sorry for a short update. I’m too busy hanging out with my peeps.

I’ll talk to you soon and hope that you all are having a great weekend!

Sweet Company

IMG_20130110_133838

I know a lot of people type and edit their blog posts on their computer. For some reason, I do it on paper more times than I do with the computer. It’s just easier for me to jot down. I do get sad about it though since I am wasting trees …

I got to Skype with Patricia on Tuesday. Even got a little time in with Shayna! We got to catch up but I couldn’t remember some things I was going to tell them. Whoops. Guess it wasn’t important! I was hoping that when I go down to S.A. for the wedding I could see Patricia but she isn’t going to be in town since she has training in Austin … so if fate will allow and our plans do work out, I might be able to stop by Austin … along with seeing Joanne. She’ll be busy with school though so we shall see!

nannycaps

I am sorry for whoever made this screencap … I don’t remember where I found it. 😦

I also got to catch up for an hour and a half on the phone with Jane. I haven’t truly talked to her in so long due to us being so busy and going our separate ways. It’s pretty great to know that the friendships that I thought were over due to not having spoken in so long isn’t. That they still call me in times of trouble or just because. Those are seriously the best friendships and I am so thankful for them. I cannot wait to see her at the wedding. It’s been TOO long!

I really do miss not being there. There being San Antonio.

Samantha taking a swing.

But I love being here, too. If I wasn’t, I wouldn’t have been able to go to Top Golf with Mallory and Samantha. Samantha and I met John K., Mallory’s dude, along with Robert, John’s friend. We had lots of laughter over most of the time … nothing. I live for moments like these. I did better at Top Golf the first time I went. Beginner’s luck? I am certain it also has to do with a little nervousness with hanging out with people I just met.

20130109_183605

I ordered a Turkey Burger with potato wedges from Top Golf and I am sad to say … their food isn’t all that great and over priced. I think I’ll stick to the drinks next time. Bleugh!

New Orleans trip is in 2 days! What?! I’m not ready. My packing list is written down. I just have to physically pack my things and I’ll be good to go. Sadly I heard it’s going to rain pretty much the whole time we’re there. Boo.

Have a great Friday! I know I will!
