Full House Thursday

IMG_20130606_063807

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.

Hurricanes

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!

Simple Things

Simple things make me happy. Some of these pictures you might have seen on my Instagram.
If not, that’s what this post is for.

Just a little inspiration.
Yogi Tea always starts my day out right.
Too in love with my nail color.

A coworker love these babies so much, she brought me two to try.
I’ve had the lime-a-ritas before … not a fan so I gave it away.
But the sraw-ber-ritas are so yum!!
These are more margaritas than beers.
And just FYI … I did not drink these at work.

IMG_20130503_220456

Took Mum out for dinner Friday night. Olive Garden.
Yum. So much food. Did not finish. Yay leftovers.

IMG_20130504_145757

Had another order of a little something something at Cloud Cafe.
I know it looks like any other one that I get but I promise you it’s not.
Not too sure what it is but shiet is good.

Happy Sunday y’all! Hope it’s been a good weekend!

This Much I Know Is True

IMG_20130430_070417

This much I know is true … My morning cup of Yogi tea always brings positive light into my life. Much needed phrase after everything yesterday.

When-someone-surprises-you-with-food

This much I know is true … No matter how annoying it is, I will always talk about how thankful I am of my friends. I won’t stop. I have amazing friends. I’m thankful I get to connect with them so many miles away especially yesterday night when I didn’t feel like myself.

This much I know is true … After talking to them, my mantra for the night was to eat my feelings … just kidding. It is: “Do not let one bad thing out of the day dismiss all the good things from that day.” You can quote me on that. Straight off of my twitter feed. It’s been copyrighted … Clear head. Happy thoughts. That’s what I need to remember.

IMG_20130430_161432

This much I know is true … I have demon dogs in my house. Rocky in the back, Bruno in the front.

IMG_20130430_171843

This much I know is true … mani/pedi’s are relaxing … if the people who work on you make you relaxed. First time at Fashion Nails with sissy and well … it could of gone better.

IMG_20130430_182257

This much I know is true … having a Sissy is great. Especially when they pay for you. Puahaha. Can you guess which hand belongs to which one of us?

IMG_20130430_192745

This much I know is true … Rocky and Bruno love to play tug-a-war. And growl. And play fight. So loudly.

IMG_20130430_205536

This much I know is true … I get Bruno for a week … but his heart belongs somewhere else. Patiently waiting for his owner to come back.

Today was definitely 20x better. Let’s hope the rest of the week goes swimmingly.

Staying Positive and Thinking Good Thoughts.

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.

[2013] 017/365: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2

Just an uplifting quote from Yogi.

All I’ve done today is hang out with family. Best times. Sissy,  Brett and I have been playing a lot of this Marvel game. So fun!  Yay Playstation!

We are still playing so I’ll talk to y’all later. If this post looks weird, it’s cuz it’s from my phone!

Happy weekend y’all!
