Mini Staycation



Howdy Lovely Doodies! Weird seeing such an early post from me right?

But Guess What Guess What! I took today and tomorrow off work! And seeing how I automatically get this Friday off, it is PERFECT! Hello 5 day weekend! 😉

Everyone at work asked where I was going and to my reply … nowhere. Cuz who has money to go places nowadays. I’m still excited though except I don’t have much planned out. Just thought I’d relax and hang out with whoever wants to see me.

Today is ME day. Shopping. Could Cafe. Straight up nothing. I don’t even know yet but it’s just whatever I want.



Tomorrow I have a lunch date and happy hour set up with friends.

Friday if all goes according to plan, I will be going to Kemah for the first time. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I’ve been wanting to check it out.

But if anything falls through I’d probably just go to Cloud Cafe and do some blog work or shop and be a super lazy vegetable in front of a telly. Sounds like a plan.

Mum said I’ll have a stalker one day since I go to Cloud Cafe so much. *sigh* Worry wart. But if that does happen, she’d probably say I told you so. Oh, mothers. Don’t she know I already had a few stalkers in my time?



This post was written in advanced so right now I’m probably still sleeping while you’re reading this. I usually wake up no later than 5am on work days so you can see how much I’m already loving it.

Happy Wednesday lovelies!


Change In My Future – More School?


Cloud Cafe-ing. I’ve made that a word. Currently sipping on an Iced Hibiscus Raspberry Tea. It has a peculiar taste that I’m not use to. I’ll try anything once even though I’m not a fan of raspberry. But it’s not bad. Just very strange for my palette that I’ll have to get use to.



I don’t like that there are MORE people coming in now. I mean yay they’re getting business but now they’re in my area. One girl even dared to sit in MY seat so now I’m in a seat where I can stare at her with disgust. The nerve of some people.



Pretty much how I feel about my seat. *sigh*

Went out with Tim, Sarah, and June for Kenson’s birthday celebration. He’s the youngest cousin I have in the States so it’s a little weird taking him out on his 21st birthday and getting drinks. Everyone is so grown up now. Next thing you know we’ll be celebrating one of my niece’s/nephew’s 21st!


One of the gorgeous views at work.

I’ve been contemplating on other things than just changing up my blog (which might take a while to happen now that I realize how much work I have to prepare for it). I might be going back to school. I cannot fully quit my job since well I’m poor. But I’m searching for some online classes/degrees/programs and whatnot. I’ve found one I’m super interested in but we’ll have to see how that goes.

Cost and how many times I have to go drive/fly somewhere to take tests will be the deciding factor for me. Hopefully whichever one I chose, I’ll be able to follow through. I love learning and things are easy for me if someone teaches me how to do it but taking tests are the death of me – super huge anxiety. *eeeeeeeek*


Me with my British boss. He wanted to take one with the Union Jack! Guess pictures aren’t that fun when faces are blocked out, eh? Oh well.

Time to research about school stuff. Happy weekend loves!

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

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!

Reminder To Self



A reminder to myself to suck it up and stop being angry at someone else’s actions towards me. They were obviously taught with rude manners. As long as I still act professional and nice, she has nothing on me.


via Facebook

With that being said, I’m excited for tomorrow night when my weekend starts and I get to see my girls. They always know how to make me happy. Love them to death.



That’s also a reminder to myself that I have other people in my life that treat me with respect. One person should not get to me. One of my all-time favorite quote:

(S)he who angers you, conquers you.

Need to remember that. Nothing is worth getting angry over because they’ll win.

Till next time, Stay Positive & Think Good Thoughts.



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 …



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.



OOIAJ for breakfast can never go wrong.


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



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 …



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

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.



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.



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.

Full House Thursday


Every day starts fairly the same. A cup of Yogi tea for a daily inspirational quote. Ran out of Kombucha … who wants to restock my stash?


Working hard … obviously. But seriously … work was crazy today. Our main water pipe burst so we had to walk to a different building to pee. Also ate lunch with BossMan and another coworker. Was kind of weird at first but it got a little better.


Happy Hour with Mallory at:

G Bar
15455 Memorial Drive
Houston, TX 77079
(281) 497-2725

They gave out free ravioli! I got a Guinness (of course) and she got margarita on ice. And the bartender was SUPER nice!

Loved the way the place is set up! Like a living room with a bar! With a fireplace and everything!

The only thing weird was the customers. This one girl seem to look like she was working the place … if you know what I mean.


We moved our Happy Hour to:

Cafe Benedicte
15455 Memorial Drive
Houston, TX 77079
(281) 558-6607

and Samantha met up with us.

Bread & Butter | free

Not too sure what was in the butter but my gosh … too good. Garlic perhaps? Must try. Just don’t overdose on it.
The bread itself was hard on the outside and super soft on the inside. YUM.


Not a fan. Too fruity for me so Samantha took the rest.

Colorado Bulldog

Ordered this instead which is like a White Russian mixed with root beer? Too strong.
Was not a big fan of it either. But liked it better than the Hurricanes.

Lobster Bisque | cup $4.75

Yum. Didn’t care for the lobster pieces inside but the soup. MY GOSH.
Mallory ordered two soups but they were no match for this delicious one.

Gyro [with romaine, tomatoes, and Tzatziki Sauce in Greek pita bread, slow roasted lamb, house fries] | Half $7.95

I didn’t really like the pita bread. So I ate the inside only.
The fries were yummmmmmmm! They’re potatoes. Come on! Of course they’re yum.

I know I’m making it sound like I didn’t like this place but it really wasn’t at all bad. Very expensive if you look at the menu and get the whole meal but I would come here again and try something.


Came home to a full house of dogs and people. Brother and Tammy are home for about a week and brought Krypto along. It’s nice to have them here but it would of been better if it wasn’t due to these circumstances. My cousins’ grandma passed away last week and we have a funeral to go to this Saturday.

This picture is of all the dogs waiting patiently for my brother to drop any of the food he’s eating. Too cute.

Watching the Spurs vs Heat game. Go Spurs Go!

And then watching the Redbox movies we rented! Yay!!

Hope y’all had a great Thursday!

Wade Bowen


It was a long Friday at work. Felt like every time I saw the clock it was only a few minutes pass. But coming home from it was great. Look at that sky!


Got together with Mallory, Samantha, John, Robbie, Lyndsey, and her friend Amy to watch Wade Bowen!


Me and my girls.

Bought my ingredients to crock pot breakfast and lunch for the week. I am excited!

Short post so you all can get back to your weekend!
