The last cupcake

...until the next one! Dinner last night was yummy - I really like Indika and wonder why we don't go there more often! My girlies are super sweet and bought me a GC from Kuhl-Lindscomb with which to buy more fab jewelery! In attendance were (from left to right), M, Princess, LT, L and T-bone!

Afterwards we met the boys at a new bar/club called 8 on Washington. It was packed and took forever getting in. Luckily the guys commandeered some random's VIP seat and we had places to sit. We ran into some girls having a bachelorette party who needed someone to give the bride-to-be a lap dance so our friend JB obliged (after a few drinks)Good times!

My life doesn't suck as much as yours

Seinfeld was quite entertaining last night. My favorite joke was probably when he was discussing life and how everyone's generally sucks, even his. But he then qualified it with, "well, my life probably doesn't suck quite as much as yours, but it still sucks!" Yes, I can think of a few million reasons why his life doesn't suck as much as mine! Our seats were not that close so this was the best shot I got.In other random news, our upstairs tenants had some guests over last night and one of them drove the cutest car ever: a pink bug!I had to snap a quick photo on my way out to work this morning.

That's all for now. Some rest and Indian food up next!

Another day like every other

Yes, today is Friday but, alas, I will be working all weekend - boo! Fortunately I have a couple things to look forward to - we are seeing Seinfeld live tonight (I will sneak my camera in for photos but got busted at Joel McHale last time so who knows...)

And tomorrow my girlfriends are taking me to dinner at Indika, for my last bday hurrah! I wish May didn't have to end...

15 minutes

We have a bad habit of letting our clutter take over the house so I have decided to take 15 minutes every day to clean it up! So far I have cleaned up our living room/kitchen and most of my stuff on our work table. Hopefully this will last!

And because I hate posting sans photos, I am so happy this is starting again!

early morning run

Summer is about here. We were hot and humid running at Memorial this morning - and it wasn't even 6 am!! Now I have to get re-aquainted with running in the humidity for the next 5 months...

close up

of my new sandals. I have been really obsessed with shoes this past year. And since September, when I bought my first real designer shoes (Tory Burch booties) I have been trying to limit my shoe purchases to really good quality shoes. So with the exception of the 2 pair of target sandals I bought I have made good on that. I mean 4 pairs of shoes in 9 months is really not a lot, right? I have many more I am obsessing over, but have restrained myself...for now!

more weekend please!

I am a bit sleepy today although I didn't do much of anything. Maybe that's why! This Memorial Day has definitely been the most mellow in a long time, which is fine by me! On Saturday morning I went to the gym for 50 minutes of cardio followed by yoga. We had a sub yoga instructor and while it was definitely not my favorite class and I considered leaving I'm glad I didn't because 1) I felt bad since more than half the class left before it was over and 2) I was still a little sore from missing yoga over 1 week and then going full force in mysore so it helped stretch me out without pushing me too hard.

We met Marc, Greg and Johnny (visiting from Chicago) at Baby Barnaby's for bfast with a dessert pancake before heading downtown to watch Termintor Salvation. While the movie was no where near T2, it was entertaining and introduced me to this hottie:His name is Sam Worthington and he played Marcus. He was the reason the movie was even tolerable for me ;)!

Later Sat night we met for bday drinks and wine at Boheme, a cute little wine bar down the road from us. I got some fabu earrings from the boys and Darah.I also wore my new TB gladiator sandals (bday present for myself!)We ended the night with drinks and photos at Kirt and Mike'sI was a little tired Sunday morning but able to drag into yogi. Still a little sore so my practice was a bit draggin' but, as always, I was glad I went. Went over to Tingaling's where Boom cooked breakfast - eggs and delicious gingerbread pancakes! (photos in other camera...still to come)

Later on Sunday afternoon, we got an invite to K+M's pool so of course we accepted! Pool time wore me out and I was in bed by 10!Today I made it to yoga and had an excellent practice. I actually practiced 4 days in a row (Fri, Sat, Sun and Mon!) and am quite proud of myself. We met Greg, Johnny and Chris at 1308 for lunch (ceviche - yum!). The boys went to another pool party but I stayed home, at a cupcake and caught up on Lost (OMG - next season is going to be amazing!). Our pizza just arrived so I am off for dinner. Back laters!

I am looking forward to this nice long weekend of doing much of nothing. Well, maybe something, but nothing major. Maybe a movie, some wine with friends and lots of relaxation. That's what I talkin' about!

So my favorite didn't win AI, but my consolation is that he can put out a rockin' album and not have to sing that god-awful contrived winner song!

I have really been bad about posting lately. Just between being busy and uninspired, I guess! One thing to do for my 38th year (AACCK!) is to post at least 4x/week. (I really would like to everyday, I just don't think it's possible for me right now!). We'll see how it goes!

Now I am off to edit and post some Milan photos!

We're back!

...after a nightmarish flight home. Milan to Newark went off without a hitch. But our plane, which was supposed to leave Newark around 4:30 pm didn't end up leaving until 7 or 7:30 so we didn't land until 10:30 and home after 11. Ugh! Now it's time to get back into the swing of!

We are on our second day in Milan and it has been fabulous! I just woke up from a short nap...we are pretty much over the jetlag, but walking around all day will make you pretty tired!

We started our journey on Tuesday morning with a flight from IAH to Newark. After a 3 hour layover we left NJ around 6:30 pm for the overnight to Milan. We tried to sleep as much as we could on the plane ride but it was spotty at best!

After we landed, we took the 45 minute train into the city and 5 minute cab ride to Joey's awesome apartment. He is located right next to the large park and walking distance to pretty much everything. Milan is a fairly small city and easy to get around. Linh arrived about 2 hours after us so after some freshening up we went for some lunch (pizza, of course) and dessert (gelato, of course). We walked around the park before heading back for a quick nap.

Joey worked yesterday so after waking up Joe went for a quick run and I took more photos at the park. After Joey came home, he took us out for drinks, dinner and dessert. We went to this local resturant for fish and steak and another yummy gelato place.

Today we did the touristy things: toured the Duomo and piazza, saw Da Vinci's The Last Supper, which was totally amazing and kudos for Joey for making us a reservation and window shopped at the Galleria (unfortunately stuff here is more $$ than in the States so no purchases have been made...yet!).

Milan is a very cool, chic city. People here seem to have more style - it's very inspiring! Tomorrow we will be headed out to Lake Como - can't wait!

Sleeping is underrated

At the beginning of the week (Mon-Wed) I was doing good with getting up early and working out in the morning. But lost some steam yesterday because we went out for Richie's bday and today, well, because sleeping feels so good! I can console myself that at least I am going to yoga this afternoon!

Happy Birthday Richie

We celebrated my dear friend Richie's bday at Dolce Vita last night.
It's a great restaurant; my only gripe is that with a large group of peeps (more than 6), you end up at a very long table and don't get to chat with everyone very easily and it's hard to take photos!After the dinner festivities some of us went to Guava and Blur, but I came home early to sleep. Alas, I still didn't get motivated enough to work out this morning (and I only had 2 glasses of wine plus a couple sips of chocolate martini!) but I figure running and yoga yesterday can make up for the missed work out.
