Happy Monday!

I hope everyone is having a lovely Monday! I don’t know about you, but I wish it was still the weekend. It just goes by so fast! What did everyone do over the weekend? 

On Friday, I wasn’t feeling too hot. All day. From morning to night, I just felt sick. Had a stomachache that would not leave! I thought work would never end. Then after work I headed over to my parents house to drop off some homemade beef jerky that Troy made. I hung out there for a couple of hours but was pretty miserable. I just wanted to go to sleep. And that’s what I did when I got home! Laid down and pretty much passed out. Exciting Friday night, right? 

I woke up on Saturday feeling okay. Still felt a little off but better. I spent most of the morning cleaning up the place and getting ready for my friend, Hammy, coming over. We were going to have a double feature and watch the latest season of Pretty Little Liars. Anyone else love that show?!

These were the movies that we watched. Penelope is one of my favorite movies. I just adore it! Plus it has James McAvoy in it. And well, he is pretty easy on the eyes. πŸ˜€. It’s a cute movie. Because I Said So is another favorite. This movie has Gabriel Macht in it and he is pretty dreamy. I just adore the character he plays and the clothes he wears. Hammy hadn’t seen those movies. Crazy! She liked them. During the double feature, we had candy and popcorn. Then for dinner we had skillet nachos. Troy did most of the work but I helped! Hammy stood around and looked pretty. What a hard job…


Yum yum. Everything hit the spot. We caught up on PLL, and had some much needed girl talk. Saturday was a blast. 

On Sunday, I tried to sleep in since I stayed up way past my bedtime. But that didn’t happen. Go figure. I didn’t do too much that day. Tackled laundry, and worked on wedding invitations for my cousin. We are going to be going out for Father’s Day next weekend since my dad had a band gig. This was the picture he sent me: 

Isn’t he just awesome? Love him. πŸ˜€. 

Sunday evening was reserved for watching Food Network Star. Does anyone watch? If so, who are you rooting for? It was the first Sunday without Game of Thrones. Sad face. 

Anyway. Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and are off to a good start for the week! πŸ’š


What’s been happenin’ this week.

Where did I leave off…oh! It was May 4th. Day before Cinco De Mayo! Hope everyone had a fun and safe day. Anyone sick of tacos?! I sure am not! At work, we had a fiesta! That also included margaritas. Jelly?! Well, don’t be. They were virgin. Sigh. But, it was still pretty tasty. There was SO much food. Ground beef, chicken, rice, beans, cheese, olives, onions, tomatoes, 5 pounds of sour cream (right?!), chips, salsa…I’m probably missing something. But, you get the picture. Everyone in the building was invited and I think a good amount of people showed up. I made myself a soft taco with a side of chips and a margarita. Of course. I was part of the clean up crew afterwards. I was definitely okay with that since it meant I got a little break from work. I think it was a pretty darn successful fiesta!

After work, my friend was having her own get together. Troy and I volunteered to make some food. We made a spicy salsa, guac, and a roasted corn and black bean salsa. Think Chipotle, but 10x better. Would anyone be interested in seeing recipes? Let me know! All three were a huge hit. Not a shocker. My friend had a decent spread! Ground meat, chicken, all the fixin’s, cilantro lime rice, beans…. yummy! AND, she had margaritas. Real ones. Gimme the alcohol!



That’s my strawberry margarita. I couldn’t wait for it to get in ma belly! It definitely hit the spot. Isn’t the glass adorable?! Loved them. And can I just mention how much I love her table cloth and the table bench (booth?!)… I have to admit, I’m totally jealous of her apartment decor. Back to the party! Not much left to say – we all ate, drank, talked and had a great time!

Yesterday after work, I went to Lake Isaac for a photoshoot. Not mine. It was for my friend. She has a fashion blog and had a photoshoot done with a chuck of outfits. The photographer is also a good friend of mine. I was there mostly for the social aspect. Here are some snapshots:







And there you have it. That was my adventure at the lake. It was great evening. Beautiful as you can see in those last two photos. You should check out notsohammy.wordpress.comΒ and photosbymariposa.com. Those are some really great gals.

Today was spent going to a coffee shop that’s right around the corner for the first time. The Village Bean. It was a quaint little place. The coffee was really good. Troy got a buckeye (peanut butter and chocolate) mocha and I got a caramel macchiato. It wasn’t overly sweet which I really enjoyed. After that, we went grocery shopping. Came back home and relaxed. I painted my toenails, and eventually made a late lunch. Nothing too fancy, just chicken, sweet potato and mushrooms. We eventually made our way to hang out with my mom. We went to Winking Lizard. Just the three of us. My dad was at a band job or else he would have been there too. It was a lot of fun! I always enjoy hanging with the mama. Throw in some food, some beer, the husband, and it’s a great time! We hung out for a little bit more at my parent’s house and then just came back home. I have to say, the day went by SUPER fast but it was productive and fun.

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day! We will be at my grandparents in the afternoon. What is everyone else up to? I don’t think we have anything else going on tomorrow. I’ll be baking some cupcakes! I’d tell you, but I’ll most likely do a post about them. I just absolutely love baking cupcakes. Why might I be baking cupcakes, you ask? Even though it is Mother’s Day…Monday is my birthday! Woohoo!! I’ll be the big 2 7. I’m basically 30… oy.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far!
