Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Happy Friday. Hope you had a great holiday week. It has been a nice week for me. Took a short road trip, shopped, ate way too much and chilled. So this is a crazy mix of stuff I posted on Instagram, Twitter pictures and Google + & I started an account onDayre; if your there hit me up, cause I have no idea who to follow or what I am doing yet. #Truefact Really..
I like the premise of it, short bits that turn into a daily blog entry...I just have to find time to do it...lol Anyway! Here is the random randomness of the week that was.
This was a FAB and SUPER stuffed dinner we ordered at the Happy Dragon while in New Braunfels. Read about it here. Dylan had the Lobster and Shrimp (not me) and we found that he never orders it because he does not like lobster...boo! I did share my veggies with him. There was plenty. :)
Lets see, #1 my new Coach hat! Yes and now its finally cold enough to wear it. #2 & #3 (the yogurt and coffee) were a lesson in hot breakfasts at hotels the US.Read it here. The "And away we go" I made...I just love things like that..
Chick Pz from this months Vegan Cuts Box. Also the Snapea Crisps. I haven't reviewed or really written about them, yet (meaning it won't happen anytime soon) But if you want to see the full picture of what was included this month click here. The box seemed really FULL.
Speaking of healthy food - I took advantage of Raw Snacks Black Friday Sale (link to their site) & then my auto correct on the Ipad acted up, see the invoice. LOL I really wasn't High. And Thank you all for not judging me on my spelling, writing. The Auto correct is hell plus the auto correct on my iphone is in French. (For an added layer of difficulty! It's extreme writing! Merci) :0
Last picture was me at the office wrapping Christmas gifts. I was working, but nothing was going on so decided to get that done. I did forget the ribbon and tags though. #FAIL so they all my end up going to ME! hahaha, no MY STUFF hasn't arrived yet. LOL :(
So did you get any good deals this week? There's still time....
Catch you later!
How is your Thanksgiving going? I went to the office today but admit I have been shopping on line and wrapping presents. Productive much? LOL It's ok I'm the only one here today because its a holiday & I'm the boss. Which translate into I don't get holiday, over time, or sick pay. Yeah! More perks of owning your own business, lol Anyway, Its all good, really. I love what I do and it allows me to travel...which makes me really, really happy! :D
Speaking of travel and what this post is sorta about....While I was on my vaca I had enough down time to read (yippeee!) and even go blog hopping. I found a new blogging app called Dayre. Have you heard about it? So who else is there? How long has this been out there without me knowing about it??? It's a pretty awesome app.
This links to my wee site on Dayre, if you want to check it out. It seems like a pretty cool idea. It lets you upload your bits and pieces (text, pictures, stickers and video) of what's happening through out the day and then forms them into a longer daily post. (Just go see the site and you will understand, its much better than I can explain, okay?)
Take care & talk soon!
Hope your week is going well.
I just made it back from a little stay-cation/break/ road trip into the Texas hill country.
It was a nice, much needed break and I didn't really want to return, yet (Maybe at all.) We did a little shopping and caught up with some old friends, but mostly just chilled.
So this was how the last mornings adventures went:
I packed up the truck, AND I SWEAR WE DO NOT TAKE THIS MUCH FOR A 6 MONTHS EUROPE ADVENTURE! WTF?? Where does all this stuff come from??
* ___ * ????
Then after 100 trips back in forth in the cold and crazy wind, finally finished loading the truck. Grabbed a quick coffee and turned in the room key. And tried to leave..
Yes, I said "Tried"
OMG! It's a sign we should stay a few more days??!?!?!...LOL nope. I popped hood and everything LOOKED ok, I didn't see anything loose or burnt or smell anything funny. Then I jiggled the battery connectors and they seemed ok. Hmmmm? (Like I even know what I'm doing? #FakeIt) I asked the next person I saw for a jump (not thinking it would help, but figured I should start somewhere. BTW I do carry jumper cables with me. My dad made sure that I always did. Bless him.) and the motor started right up! The Angels sang and It was awesome! Mostly because I was thinking about being stranded until someone could come get me and the expense of towing, etc etc etc :(
I think it had just been so cold (below freezing the last couple of nights) that even though I was driving around every day it wasn't enough to hold the charge. Maybe? (Cross fingers that all it was.) The battery is less than 2 years old so I dunno...
But the main thing...we were back on the road again!
Drive & Drive and don't stop. Had no problems at all driving back. But I also didn't stop for lunch or anything. #FML After we unloaded the truck, I checked to see if it would start again. It did! Success! Next trip to the PO.
And one was even the Nov Vegan Cuts box! Yeah!
My truck is running fine now. Starting right up. (yeah). I plan on putting it in the shop for a check up next week after the holidays.
And I'm back at work..fun, fun, and more fun. #Sarcasm
The last of next months trip planning is finished whoo hooo! Next I go to work on the European adventure in 2014. I must finish asap & get the deposits down before all the good gites are gone. :( Any cool places you know of? Or suggestions you have? I love stuff off the tourist path.
Stay warm and see you at the airport!
How are things? This was a part of yesterdays adventures. Thought we would check out some of the shops while in town & ended up making a stop at the Faust Bridge, again.
Should have looked at this stuff but it was too cold. We hurried in, there were a number of people shopping inside.
Left there (I wasn't in the mood to shop at all) and went to the Faust Bridge. Where it was SUPER COLD. I posted about it before here if you want to know more. Its actually the most popular post this month. WTF? I have no idea why.
Hardly anyone was there because it was so cold. There was a couple taking pictures of cowboy boots on the bridge. They had his, hers and a child's size pair arranged close together for a tight, close up shot. It looked like a really cute baby announcement. :)
Sadly I have to check out of the hotel now and get on the road.
Someone sent this to me. Credit to unknown creator (wasn't me) I'm sure it came from Tumblr where all good things start. 💞
Anyway, they sent it to me because they know I do dream about Paris & have for a very long time. I even dream about Paris when I'm in Paris #Inception throw back, lol but it's all good 😉 because I will be going back soon. ✈
What cities have captured your heart & dreams? Did you still love them after going there?
See you at the airport-
Hope your week is going well. Its pretty good here. Work has called and I have ignored it. I listened to all the messages and read all the emails. WTF?!? It can all wait until I return. Why do they think they need me so much??!
Anyway. I am mostly being lazy and just chillin. I have almost completed one *book and am about to start another. *Reading not writing. Speaking of, I have rewrites I jokingly said I would do while on this adventure....as if!
My Brit friends are falling outta their chairs at this. This is a "hot" breakfast in a normal US hotel. As far as it goes there were waffles (I didn't make/eat any) and bacon (also same) and some cold cereals. A few muffins, sweet rolls, bagels and what you see on the plates.
This was actually quite good to be included in the price of the room. There was no cheese, but they did offer apples and oranges along with instant oat meal. There was a limited selection of tea, coffee (reg & decaf) orange and apple juice.
Yesterday we went to visit some old friends and returned to the room to order pizza and gab. It was quite fun catching up! It seems there is never enough time to see everyone.
Today is more of the same. Rest, nap, read, eat and repeat! LOL Not that exciting of a holiday, right? But I surely needed it. In approx 2 weeks I head off again for a girls trip. (read 5 days of partyin) So I am sure I will have more exciting pictures then or maybe not, lol ;X
After that I have to stay home for a short while because a few short months later (Crosses fingers, hope not to jinx it) We are headed back to France/Italy/UK for the rest of 2014. :O #Massive #TravelPlans
I have soo much to do here, well NOT here, I am in a hotel, BUT HERE IN TEXAS before we can be gone that long. So this was a much needed break before I start bustin ass getting everything in order. (Read that in a determined voice, ok?)
Now I have to run, really. I need to work off all that pizza.
See you at the airport!
How is it going? We are still on the road trip. Visiting some old friends and just chillaxing.
Yesterday in New Braunfels was rainy & cold too.
We are now off to see a old friend and get a jump start on some Christmas deals. Yippee!
Talk soon & stay warm!
How's it going? Busy day driving around in the cold & rain here. :D
But a vacation is a VACATION so am still excited.
This was/is a BUDGET hotel. There is a sign that states they are remodeling the room and they know things are not up to standard and ask our forgiveness. 1. The closet door is off (see the coat trying to sneak out) and 2. the mirror is not fully fixed in the bathroom. But all in all, is ok. Heater and air works, wifi is FREE and Fast, free Hot breakfast in the morning too. IT IS a good deal. I booked via Hotwire (of course) and 3 nights coast less than $250.USD Total. So I am pleased.
The room also come with a small fridge and microwave too.
Happy Dragon delivery.
Was tired and it is still raining with temp dropping...no reason to leave and drive some more. :0
Better to just order delivery. :)
Sorry the pictures are CRAP blurry. I cannot find my Good Camera! I thought it was packed because I did not see it in my bedroom, office or living room before we left. Now I cannot find it anywhere?!?! #WTF?! Where did it go?
The food was really good! Perfect end to a long day of visiting friends and driving across Texas. I don't mind the cold or the rain. I just don't like to drive on icy roads.
Monday we are headed out & about before it rains again. We have shopping, visiting and sightseeing on the agenda. Should be a lot of fun!
It's time for another explanation of the odd/cool/silly stuff I found to post on Instagram, Twitter, Twitter pictures and sometimes Google+. The pic's all make sense at the time...really.
So from above:
TangledFX edited picture of a new, lovely pair of fire opal heart earrings. They would not photo for shit. So I gave up and edited them. :0
Next is the K-cup making my day so much BRIGHTER! Just love it. You can read the review about it here.
The black gift box and the Bath & Body Works pictures are from this post. It was a really cool surprise gift. I wasn't expecting anything (It's not my birthday) so that was kinda cool. I love love love the scent.
from top: Score! My large order of K-cups arrived! Read what all I ended up with here. (Drinking a cuppa chai right now, as a matter of fact.) #LifeIsGood
Also on the top is a picture of the winter weather moving in. I took the picture during my morning walk. I was wearing shorts and sweating and today its in the 30' F or about 2'C! WTF? Gotta love Texas weather. :x
Next I grabbed a Starbuck...all 5 million calories of goodness as I was running around town. I do feel a bit of guilt, but it was sooo good and I was running around town. Ok mostly in my truck.
And the last picture...Please do not ask me to draw your child, pet, mascot, etc. for free. And pretend it's to help me. I do not need the practice. Actually I prob do need the practice, but if so I will practice on my child, pet, mascot, etc. Pay a graphic's designer the money they deserve. And leave me alone!
It has been a busy week. I am starting my vacation in
Which means? TRAVEL PICTURES! :D
So maybe the next insta-explained will be more than just loot next week, lol
See you at the airport!
