A looksy into my day

Two days in a row! Progress, people.

My day, thus far, and a prediction for the evening:

5:45 am Wake up from a nightmare involving people/animals/objects being possessed by demons. Am skeptical that my real life cats are demon-free.
7:00 am Alarm goes off. Prepare myself for the day.
7:40 am Leave for work
11:00 am Early lunch time. Sushi!
1:00-2:30 pm Meetings
5:00 pm Appointment that involves wax and pain. Overshare?
6:00 pm+ Cook dinner, paint toenails, watch Downton Abbey, do last minute cleaning in preparation for the arrival of the Aussie boyfriend tomorrow.
10:30 or 11:00 pm Bedtime

My days are pretty standard. Up at 7, at work by 8, boot camp classes twice a week, half-assed exercise on the off days, dinners/drinks with friends here and there, LOTS of laying on the couch with cats watching tv.

With an insane work travel schedule coming up, not to mention 500 weddings to go to, I am thankful for the quiet moments of relaxation that the weekdays [mostly] provide.

What makes me happy

Continuing with blog whenever I feel like it in May...

10 things that make me happy.

1. Animals. All kinds. Strong leanings toward cats though, but I really don't discriminate. You know that video of Kristen Bell and the sloth? That's pretty much me with all animals. 

2. Crawling into clean bed sheets. Extra points if my legs are freshly shaved.

3. Dance parties. 

4. Food. All food. Cooking it. Eating it. Smelling it. I live for it.

5. That moment when a really good song comes on the radio and I turn it up full blast and sing at the top of my lungs.

6. Curling up with a good book that I'm completely lost in.

7. A great night out with friends.

8. Traveling. Getting to see a new place is so fulfilling. 

9. Getting items checked off a to-do list. OCD over hurrrr.

10. TV/movies. I'm a junkie. Just look at my DVR.

Favorite quote

I've officially failed the "blog every day in May" challenge.

Pardon me, for I was too busy drinking margaritas and eating obscene amounts of food to turn my computer on over the weekend. 

So I'll mentally change over to "blog ALMOST every day in May".

I've always loved this much that I named my blog after it!

Things that make me uncomfortable

It takes a lot to make me truly uncomfortable. This is something I pride myself on. But I can surely think of some things...

1. Running into ex-boyfriends. Ain't nobody got tiiiime for that. 
2. Speaking of exes, the time my mom asked me in high school if my then-boyfriend "touched my breasts" when we made out. Ew, mom. 
3. Seeing people sweat profusely. 
4. Pictures of myself from ages 7-16. 
5. People with staring problems. 

And that's all I have for this Friday. My mind is shot.

I"m ready for the Cinco de Mayo weekend. Ole!

Random European cities I never thought I'd visit

After almost three years at my job, I finally got to go on my first international business trip.

Free trip to Europe? OK.

I got to visit the very random cities of Leeds, England and Beziers, France. 

Never heard of them? Don't worry, I hadn't either until I started working here.

It was 90% business and jumping on and off planes, but there was also copious amounts of eating and some sight seeing as well.

And if you ever find yourself in Leeds and want to know about the night life...I'm your girl. I'm not your girl if you want to know about night life in Beziers because there were far too many shady men around to go out at night. Big shout out to Sara and her husband for warning me of this fact.

Sunday roast in Leeds

Quiche in Beziers

I know Europe is filled with them, but I never get tired of cathedrals.

My hands-down favorite part of the trip was the overnight layover I had to do in Paris. A solo date in one of my favorite cities, eating my favorite meal, and wandering the picturesque streets- an evening I will never forget, however short it might have been.


Playing teacher

Today's topic for May 2:
Educating you on something I am good at or know a lot about.

Well, I am really good at not being good at much.

Kidding. But for real.

I have never been one of those people that was just reallyyy good at something. I am not artistic or athletic. While I consider myself pretty intelligent, I'm not someone that people would describe as ridiculously smart.

But at any rate, here's a little list of things I excel in:
1. Cleaning a plate of food. Clean plate club all the way.
2. Being an animal whisperer.
3. Remembering random, useless facts. I'm pretty confident I could do well on Jeopardy.
4. Making people laugh with my awkwardness.
5. British accents.
6. Being up to date on pretty much every TV show on the earth.
7. Weddings. I am the most fun wedding guest ever.
8. Flip cup. Thanks, college education.
9. The game "big booty". Anyone ever heard of that before? It sounds scandalous, but is so not.
10. Navigating metro systems. Paris metro, you don't scare me. London tube, we're tight.

So, anyone need help honing your flip cup skills or filling your tummy with more than normal amounts of food?

In which I try to get back into blogging

I'm using this as a way to try to get back into the groove of regular blogging.
Somewhere along the way I just lost interest and decided to stalk everyone else's blogs as opposed to doing anything to my own. You should all be super flattered!
The topic for May 1 is the story of my life in 250 words or less. So in a nutshell:
I was born on January 3, 1987 in a tiny town in Texas. I grew up in San Antonio, TX [home of the Alamo and the mighty Spurs] until the day I left the nest to attend Texas A&M University. After four gloriously fun years, I graduated with a degree in Marketing in 2009. Thanks to the market crash of 2008 and my inability to decide what kind of career I wanted to pursue [the movie biz was my dream for a long time] getting a job proved to be difficult. Dark times ensued, but I finally got a job in Houston and moved there in October 2010. That is where I still reside, and life is pretty darn good. I went through a period of HATING my job, but thankfully I am now quite pleased with it. I have a passion for traveling and am thankful to have been able to do quite a bit of it in my life. Food is probably my number one source of joy. Some call me a crazy cat lady, and I am ok with that. I just call myself an animal enthusiast. I have the best friends a girl could as for, a boyfriend that's pretty cool too, and a wonderful [small] family. My dream is to spend a year traveling across the world. I am so ready to have an adventure!
