Pleasantly Surprised.

It’s amazing how time flies whilst wondering around Walgreens. It was nearing dinner time so I texted the man friend to see what I should pick up or maybe we’d grab some fast food. Much to my delight his response was, ” Lets’s go somewhere :)”. I immediately scurried to check out to get home and get ready.

Dinner was absolutely splendid.

Yes, the man friend and I live together, however that doesn’t mean we actually spend a lot of quality time together. It’s always nice when just the two of us can “get away” and enjoy each others company. We got out of our comfort zone and tried random rolls of sushi and indulged in some beer (I had to have a Sapporo!).
We got to people watch, catch up with each other and most importantly: relax. There’s nothing better then being in the moment and enjoying it with my sweetness.

No pictures, it was a technology free evening for the most part. Although I will be sure to take some shots on my day trip tomorrow. I’m very excited- Mama Bear, Tia Margie and I will be going to a Chile Festival tomorrow!

What’s been going on with everyone? Getting ready for the long weekend?

Can’t wait to catch up on my blog reading this weekend!

Sweet dreams ❀

Highlights(in life, not hair.)

Hell to the yes- we have hot water back!!! We had to relocate our gas meter, and for safety they turned off our gas for a week. Total first world problems, but I’m beyond happy that we’ve got it back. Cold showers are not for this girl.

The start of the work week was pretty crappy, but I actually got to leave early today and my coworker gave me a pair of sandals she was getting rid of.

Not to shabby. Just got to make an outfit to go with it πŸ‘

Mama Bear finally came back from her trip, and she had a blast! I got to hear all about it as I drove her home in the twister like storm we had yesterday. I kept expecting a cow to whirl past the windshield hahahaha
Get excited because we’ll be back in the kitchen tomorrow, and may have a guest cook.

And my new current favorite thing:

SLAM! It Advocare’s version of a 5 Hour Energy, only way better and good for you. I’ve had awful experiences with 5 Hours, so I was a bit skeptical. To my delight, the Slam was delicious and I didn’t feel queasy or jittery after. I had sustained energy and no crash-bonus!

I feel like I’m missing something…meh. How’ve ya’ll been?

If your day or week has been a little rocky, I hope this brings a smile to your face…

Enjoy.

Mini Celebrations.

Ahhhh, nothing like the end of the work week!

20130809-212314.jpg
The jersey is out! Not only is it Friday, the Cardinals had a Pre-season game against the Packers. We won by the way. :]

20130809-212436.jpg
I’m trying to contain my excitement for the weekend. I made Turkey Joe’s, wings, and we’ve enjoyed some delicious Honey Brown lager. Mmm mmm mmm!

Tomorrow some cooking time with Mama Bear and hopefully some lazy time. I will keep you posted ;]

Sighs of relief ❀

To Whom Ever Gives a Rats Ass

Jimmy crack corn- it’s been how long since my last post!? No bueno! Don’t worry I’m still alive.

Work is slowly taking over my life. I’ve been doing overtime and it seems like it’s never going to go back to normal. Adrian said I was even talking about it in my sleep :[ I’m hoping next week things will settle, and I won’t have to go over 10 hours a day. *crossing fingers and toes*

What I haven’t been skipping on is kitchen time!!! πŸ™‚ It’s now being done on Saturdays, and we’ve concocted some pretty tasty meals.

20130807-210243.jpg

I made a Paleo pizza (the dough was made from cauliflower!) and Mama Bear made loaded sweet potatoes! Most recently we made Lemon chicken, and just today I made spinach spaghetti with mozzarella stuffed chicken meatballs! Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring πŸ˜‰

Oh! We completed out Advocare 24 Day Challenge!!! Super proud of us, especially Adrian. He’s lost 26lbs! It’s not just the weight loss, it’s the over all benefits that have really made a difference. More energy and better sleep. Can’t wait to continue.

What else, what else… I had an awesome girls night with my best friend Micky. It was so fun just talking and having our own commentaries to the movies.

20130807-211848.jpgThe wine was nice too hahaha

Just so we’re clear, I’ve missed you oh so much! I’m making it a point to find some way of getting back into my bloggy groove.

How’ve you been ? :]

Life Update!

Time dragged yet flew by this week ( its possible!). I was beyond ecstatic for the weekend to be here, especially with all the long shifts I’ve had. Whatever- work is work blah blah blah, on to the good stuff! :]

Wednesday marked the end to our cleanse phase with the Advocare 24 Day Challenge!!! Woo hoo! Now only twelve more days to complete it. I’ve enjoyed it, a weird as that sounds.
I haven’t felt hungry, in fact, I feel like I’m eating all the time! The best part is definitely my increased energy. I wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed. Plus I’ve been sleeping like a baby.
Weight wise I have lost about 6lbs, not to shabby. Adrian has lost 15lbs!!! He’s doing awesome, I’m super proud of him. It’s been fun meal prepping and cooking more. Now we just have to get on our work out routine.

Speaking of cooking, Mama Bear are having some kitchen time tomorrow. Entree AND dessert- all healthy of course! Super stoked.

Precious moments!

What’ve ya’ll been up to? Any plans for the weekend?

Now for some bro/cousin time with the gents!

Worst Blogger Ever.

If that was an award, I’d win it. With my new work schedule, I haven’t had any cooking time with Mama Bear. Yes, I have also had writer’s block been lazy (okay, you got me!). I’m working on it- got to take it one day at a time.

I did get to enjoy a nice four day weekend. Happy late 4th of July!!!

20130707-212619.jpg
Adrian and I went to my Tia Margie’s for a BBQ. We had a perfect view of the fireworks and got some sparklers as well.
We also went bowling for his brother John’s birthday(he’s a Fourth of July baby) which was a blast!

Since Mama Bear had Bella for the weekend, I went up to hang out with her. We got to run some errands and do some window shopping as well. Gypsy and Bella we’re a bit sad when we were leaving. They love it there.

Today is also the last day of eating crap. Adrian and I are starting the Advocare system, and tomorrow is the beginning of the cleanse. I’m super excited to get it started, and even more so that we’re doing it together. Wish us luck!

How have you been? Hope you had a great weekend all!

Ch-ch-changes.

I’m alive! Just in case you were wondering ;]

I feel bad about not being on recently, but I figured you’d appreciate a post of a quality opposed to quantity.

Allow me to bring you up to speed:

I started my new job Monday…oh my word! It was absolute chaos, and one of the main guys was out of the office all week. Perfect timing right?

Even with my two training days, it did not prepare me at all for everything I’d be expected to do. I was just thrown in. There were definite moments of frustration, but I just had to push through them. I’m thankful the days would go by quickly. As “easy” as it is, there are a lot of procedures to remember and requires extreme attention to detail. I’ve been having dreams of numbers and orders lol As I keep saying, so far so good.

For once, “T.G.I.F” had real meaning to me and I had my first official weekend. Breanne’s birthday was this past week, so she had party yesterday at her house. The family and a bunch of her friends came to celebrate.

20130630-222610.jpg
One of them made her a Darth Maul piΓ±ata (super cool!) and the kids had a blast taking a wack at it.

Today Adrian had the day off as well (yay!). We were able to make it to his grand parents house for his little cousins birthday. The highlight was going to Sunday Softball!

His older cousin and wife are part of a little league and host a softball game with friends and family. I’ll admit, I was hesitant at first. I’m not very competitive and I hate having the pressure to perform (bad sports experiences when I was younger). So what happens? I get picked last and am made catcher hahahaha

The game was so much fun! Everyone (most) were really supportive and kept it fun. There were game delays due to storm issues and eventually we had to cut it short because of a down pour. Playing in the rain just made it that much better. Crossing my fingers that we get to do it again soon.

Now is time to relax and get ready for tomorrow. Hoping that this next week will allow me more time to share with you :]

How have you been?

A REAL Weekend!

Finally – I could actually enjoy a weekend! Hooray!

Saturday was jam packed it felt like. I got Mama Bear to come along to an event that was hosted by my cousin Breanne’s charity group, Customized Ladies. It was great! My Tia Margie(Bre’s mom) was also there to show support.

Mama Bear even won a raffle! I also picked up these bad boys:

I couldn’t help it, I fell in love. After it was over we went to one of our favorite restaurants Blue Willow. It’s amazing. The best part was just being able to hang out with Mama Bear and be out and about. I adore those times.

Oh! Adrian also bought a new car! I’m so excited for him. He’s so happy. No more waiting or getting up when we don’t have to hahaha

Today was also my first official day at the new place. It wasn’t as overwhelming as I anticipated, but it was still challenging. I also now have no nail and semi calluses on my thumbs due to popping out lenses. There goes any thoughts of a cute manicure in the near future…uuuugh. Lol But hey, so far so good.

The only negative from this weekend is the sunburn I acquired. Other then that, it was amazing.

On to day two tomorrow…positive thoughts :]

Breathing easy ❀

Odd Sense of Humor

Aaaaaah, reality TV…you never cease to amaze me. I came across this gem, and had to share.

20130621-232810.jpg
Newlyweds: The First Year

I made a little montage which made me laugh non stop for five minutes straight.

It’s plastic…I wanna get in the fountain!

Oh, his laugh-I love it!!! Absolutely made my day.

Hope this put a smile on someone’s face.

So long! Farewell! auf Wiedersehen! Good night!

I tossed and turned all night, last night.

Today was my last day at the Hell Hole. I left early. I didn’t see the point of staying the whole day, I at least stayed for half.

I feel a sense of relief that I’ll never have to go back there again. However I have a bit of anxiousness thinking about starting my new venture. New is always scary, but that’s part of the fun right?

eeeeeeeek!!!

*exhale* Kay, I got that out of my system.

Now I can’t wait to get a good night sleep.
