Look what happened now...
My K-Cup order came in! Which is awesome because we were down to only 2 cups left at home and I would not "borrow" any from work. Its ok...I'm the one who pays for it, but I would not feel right. I do have some morals. Although sometimes I feel like #TheOnly1OnThePlanet that still does. #WTF?!
But hey! I got a huge box of Coffee & Tea! Yippee!
My review of the new Keurig is here. If you want to read it.
I wanted to try this as a sample, because sometimes ice tea can be, well, horrible some places. Snapple makes good tea, don't get me wrong, but I didnt' how it would translate to a KCUP. It was AWESOME!
BUY ALL THE FLAVORS next time! :D
I ordered off the Keurig website & saved a bundle! They were running a promotion if you reg your machine online & bought so many you would get so many free + free shipping over $40.00 (I think) So that why it shows -$0.- for price on some.
I have had the Raspberry Chocolate Truffle and iced tea so far. They were both very good. I am really loving the machine. It really was a good investment. Ms. Y was just asking me today why I waited so long to get one. I think it was hard to justify spending the money when I am away so much. But now I am so GALD I did. I really should not have waited.
So if you are on the fence, like I was...don't wait just go buy one!
See you at the airport!
Hey! How are you?
I'm soo busy here I haven't even time to sleep, much less post, sorry :( #Fail
Truthfully I have been working late to be able to take next week off. I plan on laying in a hotel, ordering room service and surfing all day. (Exciting much?) LOL But after that work 2 weeks and go again! That trip will be a Girls Adventure Trip so no rest/sleep/surfing for 5 days. Just Party, Party, Party!
My UPS Finally arrived for that work project so they are no longer on my hate list. (UPS Still suxs, though).
Online shopping loot is TAKING FOREVER to arrive & will all prob be delivered while I am away. Hopefully the house sitter will collect everything while I'm gone if it arrives by THEN. IDK but I can tell you my experience is ORDER early or BUY the upgraded shipping.
Speaking of work I was asked to do a consulting lunch Thursday for a friend of a client. They asked what I would charge and Im like "IDK? Buy my lunch??" #WTF? It's not in my field, per say. But their theory is business is business and anyone who makes a business work is worth talking to. I guess I agree. I learn from everyone even if they are not in my field. So I accepted the lunch.
Way back when I 1st started out I was working for a HUGE international company and (I was a peon) I ran into a consultant in the lift and we chatted. I remb. thinking "Thats where the money is and YOU work your own hours." Lol I really had no idea of what business was even about back then, lol.
Ok back to it. Have a lovely day & see you at the airport soon!
I have way too many: Shoes, travel plans, makeup pieces I never use & dreams!
I would include friends, but you can never have too many people who care about you in your life!
And you? What is your answer? "I have way too many....?"
Comment below I would like to know.
How's your weekend going?
We are having "odd" weather here..1st it COLD and now it's back to WARM..Wearing shorts and a tank top as I type this. #WTF?! The sky looks like rain or ice storm or possible UFO attack at any second..
Meanwhile the flowers are blooming like it's spring...
I had a date this weekend, but canceled at the last minute because I still have not finished up my work projects. #FML (I still blame UPS)
But he was nice enough to come by my office & bring me lunch (yes, it was tacos!) and this mysterious black box.
It's a really nice box. (Fake leather and hinged.)
I opened it to find..
Each is full size. I took a quick photo with a water bottle for scale.
This is the fragrance I wear for work. It smells nice, clean and feminine without the "Hey, BABY" smell of most perfumes I like. I wear Gucci Rush when I am on a date or day off. It smells like "Hey Baby, Let me take you home" to me. :o Not what I need for work, lol (and he agrees, I guess.) This was a sweet, unexpected gift.
Now I have to get back to work. How the clients know I am at office today? (They have been calling me all afternoon.) I have no idea...Sometimes I think I should just rent my house out and live here. :(
But only one more week before vacation...
Catch you later-
"Msoneworld4me" if your on Pinterest. It's me, but my Picture is different.. Night shot of Paris, in the winter. (thought it was cool @the time) Guess I should change that? Idk..
Anyway, I don't pin often, but occasionally when I find something cool I will add it & people seem to like it. Are you a piner? Lets connect.
Catch you later-
How is your weekend? Mine is mostly work, so yep, it suxs. #FAIL
Speaking of Failing...
I do not use UPS. As a merchant it sucks. As a customer it sucks. They break my packages, toss them around, loose them and generally don't give a flying fuck about my customers or me. So I ship either Fedex or USPS. BUT depending on where in the US you live one (or both) of those co. could be WORSE. So when I need something shipped to me for business or just because, I always ask for USPS. BUT of course I do run into co who only ship via UPS.
Several weeks ago I ordered a custom print job for work. They only SHIP UPS (OF COURSE) but promised a 2 day turn around. We had a small window, so that sounded good. That was the 8/11. Opps, sorry I should say Nov. 8th.
Have a look at the updated tracking as of today, Nov 16:
They were on a truck IN MY TOWN for 2 days showing they would be delivered "by end of day" only to travel over 500 miles-- away. #WTF?
I know you are saying it's only 11 days off, so FAR. * ______ *
But it was SHIPPED "2 DAY" & work on that project is on hold, until they arrive, someday in the future #WTF? In 10 days I could have driven to NY, eaten my weight in deep dish pizza, done some shopping and come back with the damn print job!
Ok, rant over. I'm going back to work now.
Must stay later tonight to re-do the entire project, thank you UPS.
Hey, it's Friday! Yeah! We made it through another week!
Time to try and explain why I posted some of the odd randomness on Instagram/Twitter/Twitter picture, etc.
It all makes sense at the time, really...LOL
This was from the missing bridge adventure. Click here to read (Its a picture heavy post.) Mostly it's nature and the river. It was a nice, gray day in south Texas. :D
I wrote about this adventure here. It's also a picture heavy post. (Mostly iphone, so you were warned.)
2 of my friends have taken the (above pict) and made it their home screens. ;O
I was like, "Ok...Sometimes I can take a decent photo" (ok, it mostly a fluke)
and also the next one is the bridge itself..
And if you didn't know already, when I'm not shopping or looking for bridges, I'm drinking...
I am so excited about this! You would think I never buy anything for myself..when in truth I buy stuff all the time. IDK?
I should be purchasing Christmas gifts and not spending $$$ on coffee, lol. Read my review here.
Warning! I loved it..
And this cute heart was from a post I just did on upcoming travel. Click here to read it. :D
That's about all for this crazy week. Next week will be a work heavy week as I am taking the following week off. (Yeah, more hotel & shopping pictures, lol)
Hope you have a great weekend!
How are things? Busy week here. I am keeping the travel industry afloat, or so it seems. I was able to book the "staycation" for Thanksgiving. I got a great deal, too! Also I made myself stop long enough to get a hotel booked for December's upcoming trip.
I had planned on a condo, but as we added more and more people it went up, up and up in price. #FML I thought that was one of the points of a condo? Cheaper for more people? But I guess not in that town. :( So hotel it is. It was actually MUCH cheaper than the condo I had wanted, but we will have no room. But I don't think we will be in the hotel all that much.
I can't talk about the details of the trip just yet because of someone who is reading this blog. Its a long (really dull story) that I can't be bothered to explain now, but no worries; after we land I will talk about it & all the fun. :o
I booked all of the travel via Hotwire. I poked around 1st and they are still the cheapest. Start there if your still looking for last minute deals.
Did you realize the month is almost 1/2 over?
Do you have holiday plans? How are you celebrating? I have one more week here (super busying at work) and then off and then return for 2 more weeks, followed by the next secret adventure!
Then it's 2014.
Then time to get serious on returning to France. Thats approx. 1,000 details that have to be taken care of (from closing up the houses here to forwarding mail in UK to EU & back) YAHHHHH! To be honest I don't even want to think about it now.
In the meantime are the holidays...
It already feels like Christmas here, WTF? How did this happen? But between buying myself the new Keurig and receiving a Kindle Fire as a gift (Read about the Keurig here if your keen on buying one too.) there are boxes & papers everywhere. Now I just have to slow down long enough to learn to use the Kindle. #1stWorldProblems
And clean house, lol
Catch you later-
How about you? Big Coffee lover? I must admit I really like tea better. When I was younger I had a job where we were offered gourmet coffees all day long (for free) in the office and I made myself ill drinking too much over the course of a week. #Fail I couldn't help myself..they were sooo good! Since then I only drink about 1 cup per day. My tea drinking is quite another story, but we shall save that for another day. :X
Because as I mentioned above I only drink ONE CUP A DAY. So no use to make (and waste) an entire pot.
Meanwhile in America I drink this...
I do go for Starbucks (as you have seen on my past posts and instagrams) but not all that often. Hello, $$$ flying out the door..
So when my friend Yo showed me her new Keurig I was sold! I went home (After asking for a 2nd cup of tea, thank you) and started doing research. There are many different models and many reviews on line. I don't care one flip about the noise some people complained about in the reviews. It's not that bad and I'm not making coffee while other people are sleeping in the same room. (Where do YOU people live??) Ok, no judgement, but it wasn't an issue for me. After much reading, I went with the B145 Office Pro for small offices.
It features 3 cups sizes, drainable inside tank and was rated to last longer, with fewer problems that other comparable models. I LOVE IT!
Ms. Yo loaded me up too. (The taste of San Antonio is from her. #SoSweet) What are your favorites? I see also that you can buy filter cups (like re-useable pods) and mix your own! How fun is that? I really like the idea of no waste and also its ready so quickly! #WinWin
Oh! And I regst. it online and they had a sweet deal of buy 2 cases and get 2 cases free of your choice of flavors. (I was able to get teas, too! ) :D
Now I'm going to brew up my daily cup in less time than it takes this to upload. How awesome is that?

How is your week going? Hope well. We continued the long weekend adventures with a birthday lunch for LS. She and another buddy met us for a late lunch at the Cracker Barrel in San Marcos, Texas. They picked it because it has something everyone can eat and because its by the Huge outlet mall.
There are 140 stores in this part...including
There are hotels all around the mall & lots of good places to eat because people travel from all over (including other countries) to shop here. It's a shopping destination! :0
Coach was having a BIG SALE and it was wall to wall people. But there was nothing that I wanted. #Fail
Returned home to find this HUGE Rose waiting for me. Wow it's too big for a bud vase.
I then changed clothes and we went out to see Thor 2. YEAH! Will post about it next. (GO SEE IT, if you haven't yet.)
