Hump day

I'm glad it's already Wednesday and the weekend is just around the corner. It kind of sucked that I had to work last Sat but on the flip side, I get a 3 day weekend 2 weekends in a row - which I am very excited about.

Some great news - we got our tickets to see Madonna here in H-town come November! They are not front row or anything, but we didn't pay an arm and leg for them either. I will be looking forward to her show!

After our day of afternoon of shopping in which I was unsuccessful in finding a summer dress but did find a cute Theory shirt (on sale of course!), Tinger and I picked up Boom to have some lunch. We ate sandwiches at a little cafe by their house.

Marc called to see if we wanted to see the new Indiana Jones movie so we were going to meet him at the movie. We missed Marc but caught the movie, which was ok. Not terrible but not wonderful either. I REALLY didn't like the ending where they put the Crystal Skull in its proper spot, but that is not why I am posting about this.The reason I am posting is because Joe and I just watched ET on the telly tonight.I thought it would be a little silly to watch, but I forgot how good it is. So a good movies is a good movie no matter when it was made. Steven Speilberg is an excellent director even if Indy didn't really live up to its expectations. And I still shed a little tear when we thought ET was going to die, even though I know he lives. I think I watched that movie at least 4 times the summer of '82 when it came out and I cried every time. Still love it!

Random AM photos

So...I didn't really feel like going to the gym or running this morning, but I didn't want to NOT do anything either, so Joe and I went for a short photo walk around our neighborhood.
Today I will be having lunch and doing a little shop shop with Tinger. I am on the look out for a cute summer dress.

The end of an era

So this is the first Memorial Day since 2001 that we have not gone to Lake Travis in Austin. I miss it but at least we will still be having fun with our peeps later on today at Club Rue.
(You can tell when I decided to bring my digital camera on the boat in 2006 - much better photos!)

Just me

A fun self-portait I took the other day. Obviously edited to death, but I kind of like it!

Just got done with a long day at work. I need some rest!

Friday, May 23, 2008


So this morning I went to get my running shoes from right outside the door...and they weren't there. I looked in my closet and they weren't there either. So we think some jacka$$ bent our gate and stole them! Ugh! Who would want my dirty smelly running shoes? I am even more irritated because they had my insoles in them (they were specially made to help with my back). So note to self: always bring your shoes inside, even if they are dirty.

Go Cookie!

I can't believe he won - woot woot!

I hate the day after your birthday - you can no longer celebrate and you are just older.
I did have a great day, though. Work was busy but good (no crazies). I had lunch with my li'l sis at her house. Had a good yogi practice. A yummy dinner was provided by aforementioned sister from Camille's and we ate while enjoying the season finale of GG (not as good as last week's BEST EPISODE EVER!) and the season premiere of The Bachelorette (I will try my best not to get sucked into this show...). I also caught the tail end of AI - I think Archihoohoo is going to win.
My sweet hubby bought some beautiful flowers and a yogi outfit for my bday. A girl can never have too many workout clothes!
And this morning I got my scrap on before going to work (which I am about to do now).{I love working in an 8x8 size because it comes together so much more quickly!}
On the plan for today - see if my camera can be fixed as well as more yogi tonight.

is my bday! Yay me!

A little hungover

some from thisbut mostly from this{I can't remember the last time I did a shot of tequila. At least it was Patron!}
But regardless of the hangover I had a great early bday celebration yesterday, which I spent with most of the peeps I love.
Fortunately (or unfortunately, whichever way you choose to see it), we only had one casualty during the day's festivities: my Canon Point-and-shoot. Joe very wisely took my fancy camera home but I always have to have at least one camera with me so my trusty Canon was by my side the rest of the night. I think my purse fell during the night and with it my camera. So now whenever you turn it on, all you see is this:I am a little bummed as the camera was less than 2 years old, but I guess now I know what I'd like Joe to buy me for my bday!

A little scrappiness

got a little inspo this morning.

We are having an early bday celebration for me in a couple hours. While I love the celebrating, I hate adding another year to my age. I think I may start subtracting instead!

500th post!

And to commemorate such a momentous occasion, some random tidbits.
-Tinger and Boom practiced yoga with us today. Erik had a good class as usual.
-Work has been exceedingly slow these days. Good because I am not exhausted at the end of the day but bad because we need people to have business!
-Lost is still one of my favorite shows ever. I am bummed that the season finale is almost here.
-AI is losing is appeal. I am just ready for SYTYCD
-Ready for my birthday weekend to begin!

I just haven't felt motivated to write anything lately. One because I have been busy with life. And two, because my audience has moved to H-town! Tinger and I hung out on Mon, Tues, and today! We may again tomorrow, but I won't have a car (Joey is having his Lasik tomorrow!). I love having my sis in town!

Busy girl

Life seems to be getting in the way of blogging these days. I hope to play catch up by this weekend!

Happy Mom's Day

To the most beautiful, generous, fabulous mom in the world.

Friday, May 09, 2008


This has been a weird week - I feel like I have been busy but haven't gotten much done. This probably has to do with the fact that we have gone out almost every night since I've been home. So the house is slowly turning into a wreck and I haven't had any time to scrap! (hee hee) I want to get "caught up" this weekend - cleaning, resting, etc. We'll see how it goes.

I finally went back to yogi yesterday. After taking a 10 day hiatus I thought it would be hard, but I actually had one of the best practices I've had in a long time. Maybe because I let my muscles rest a bit? I got into the poses a lot easier than I expected and it really felt good. So I am getting back on track with the work outs!

And although it is Friday I do have to work this weekend - boo! I am ready for Sunday already...

So I have been a little obsessive about all thing Madonna latetly with the release of her new, absolutely fabulous CD. We have actually seen her live 2x over the past 4-5 years (don't EVEN ask how much money was spent on these trips). We saw the Re-Invention tour in Miami and the Confessions tour in LA. I even attended the dress rehearsal of the Confessions tour with my buddy Cindy, who works at LiveNation in LA.Anyhoo, we always complained that she never comes to Texas. Rumor had it that she doesn't like Texas because of Bush, etc, etc. But for her latest tour she is actually coming to Houston! Woo hoo! I am a little bummed because I didn't join the fan club in time to get the presale tickets, which go on sale at the end of May. But at least we can see her in the comfort of our home town! And we will have to find a way to get better seats...

Nothing exciting to report. Trying to get back into the swing of things with workouts and yoga. It's been hard with the late nights (no more early training for Joe) and travel. Like everything I guess it just goes in cycles. I'll just leave with a photo of my favorite boys.
Things to look forward to: So You Think You Can Dance and the Bresnahan move!

I'm Ba-ack!

After a drama filled afternoon in the Cincinnati airport I finally arrived home last night at about 5:30 pm. The conference was fine as far as work stuff goes. I was just glad to be sleeping in my own bed last night!
Our friend Richie's bday is today so we celebrated last night on Cinco de Mayo at Cafe Adobe. I didn't stay long because I was starting to feel achy and tired. So I crawled into be around 8:30 last night! After taking a couple tylenol PM I was able to fall asleep - this morning my body feels better but my head feels a little swimmy from the meds. Luckily I don't have to be at work until 10 AM.
Photos to come later!

Better blogging

I am going to attempt to blog every day that I can get to a computer this month {I will be out of town tomorrow until Monday for a work conference. I was contemplating bringing Joe's laptop, but I don't think I'll have much computer time when I am there}. Nothing to exciting has been happening lately which is why I haven't been motivated to write. I guess my interest in it ebbs and flows, like everything else.

My latest obsession is the Hard Candy CD. Not only does Madonna look good but she sound great as well. I have loved every disc she has released since Ray of Light. She is still pop music to the core, but she definitely reinvents herself every time.

But now I will get off the computer to spend a little time with the hubs before I have to leave - we won't be able to spend our anniversary together - boo! Last year this time we were enjoying the beaches of Cancun.

Thursday, May 01, 2008


I had ambitious plans of doing one hour of cardio this morning. As it is now 6:30 AM and I have to be at work at 8 I don't see this happening. Instead I have been uploading Hard Candy, the new Madge CD, which I am enjoying, and catching up on my blogs. Not a bad way to spend the morning! {I still can't believe she is almost 50. There is hope for me yet...}
