Look what happened now...
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Hope you are ready to Party!
I sure am...So I posting this tonight because tomorrow I gotta hit the ground running.
So many parties, so little time... :D
Now back to topic, lol
Here were my top posts (via clicks) for December:
*My Blog is 1 year old.
(Guess what this one was about??!) LOL
*New Orleans December Trip part 1
(Yeah finally some travel!) This is a fairly long, picture heavy post of getting to Nawlins'.
(Mostly just messing around. Picture heavy post with lots of cute borders.)
(Nail polish. Hats off to the ladies that make whole blogs on nail polish. Because let me tell you it's hard/impossible to achieve picture perfect nails!)
Anyway, thank you for taking the time to ready my silly little blog!
I can't wait to see what next year is gonna bring!
How's it going? When people find out I just returned from a trip toNew Orleans the 1st questions they always ask is: "How was the food?" followed by: "Did you get to catch any cool local music?" Well duh, of course! I love live music! And the blues stole my heart a long time ago. ?
Plus If you have been here before you know I'm no foodie. I live of coffee and beignets while there and actually loose weight after a visit. WTF?! #OnlyMe
BUT I do love music!
(You may remb. I have managed a rock band, am sworn off dating musicians, used to live in the live music capital of the world, oh yeah and used to be married to a musician wtf, etc. etc. from past posts. So yes, I know a bit about music.)
If you are planning a trip to The Big Easy then I would strongly suggest you check out this website for best info on where to go for the live, local music experience.
Now that I have given you this gem I must run! My buddies from (Guess Where? Yes, New Orleans!) Are in Texas this week and I have adventures planned! So be on the look out for more blurry pictures and random nonsense! :D
Catch you later-
Hey Hey! How is it going?
I went to the shops the other day and was surprised at the empty shelves. :o
Where did everything go??
(And actually the desolate store) the mgr is a friend of mine, so as I checked out I asked her about it. Meaning did they sell everything out for Christmas? :o Wow! Super Good Year, huh? She confided in me that they did sell a great deal of merchandize this year, (regardless of the economy being in the toilet), but they pulled the rest to set up for Valentine’s Day. * _____ *
What the HELL? Valentine's Day? Really?
Meanwhile in my world, I am still in December! Still enjoying a cuppa coffee in Christmas Cups :) Work is still thankfully, closed and I'm still slacking at home. #PerfectHoliday
OH! And I JUST received a considerable pile of Christmas cards Saturday. I’m not sure where they have been, but is ok. They made it. The Snowflake is so pretty, isn't it? I don't usually save cards, but I was tempted by it.
And someone was extra kind! #Amazon rocks! So better late than never.
We went out to eat & to watch the Hobbit Desolation of Smaug again last night. But I didn't take a single photo, blurry or not. #Fail I just wasn't in the mood. #ReallyLazy
I have to stop eating so MUCH or I won't fit into my NewYears Eve Party dress. :( I have 2 parties and will probably have a get together at my place on the 1st or 2nd. So I better get busy cleaning. My house currently looks like I don't own a broom. WTF? How can a few off days at home wreck house so bad??
Catch you later-
Hope all is well in your world! Did you have a nice Christmas? Hope you got everything you wanted and were able to send presents to everyone special in your life. It's really not so much about what you get, but who you can share it with, right? :D
I'm back in Texas and feeling better day by day. Spoke with Angelica yesterday & she told me about a girl around the block from her home who just died from the Swine flu. She was super upset, as you can imagine. #ScaryShit
But everything is ok here. I have company for the holidays but it's really low key. Standing up and saying I wasn't cooking (or paying) for everyone for the holidays was the best choice I have made in a very long time. I was able to relax and enjoy the holiday, with no stress!
Now that she is walking, I mean RUNNING! There are only action shots of her. :O
She turned 1 in Nov. & celebrated by starting to run!
Meanwhile at home...A different kind of adventure,
It's not s SUPER BIG DEAL, but right now there is NO WAY to find a plumber. Will have to wait until after Jan 1st. Luckily I have another shower. :o Or things would be smelly quick! lol
Snagged a few after Christmas deals. I still look like #ZombieFace but I didn't let that stop me.
Friends are pretending not to notice. Family like "WTF is wrong with your face?? Swollen?? Your eyes like your never slept?!" Love how family so brutal and honest. NOT * _____ *
Next morning after 8 wonderful hours of sleep I felt well enough to make brunch for everyone.
I'm supposed to be creating a photo book for thebirthday girl of this crazy trip. But am waiting on Angelica to send her pictures to me. (Taps foot on ground Impatiently) and Char forgot her camera. Her phone is a razor or something like that (rolls eyes) so she took no pictures at all. :( I have no idea how she even texts on that thing. WTF?
So I guess I will just make do with what I have.
Catch you later-
*WARNING* This is a Picture Heavy POST :x
This is another night of adventure Char, Angelica and I had in the French Quarter last week. Angelica had gone to see something, (I think she was searching for the perfect gumbo? IDK), Char had gone to see her brother (who lives near by) and I was ill in the room, Oh what fun! Anyway, we decided to meet up that night to go explore. Char called and told me she would be back within 2 hours and Angelica said she was going on a Ghost tour and would text when she was done. The plan was to all meet up at Jackson Square for adventure.
I showered threw on some clothes & waited on the balcony for Char. There were quite a few people about. The French Quarter doesn't really sleep.
I got bored again + all the drunk people coming into the hotel were talking to me. #FAIL
I went outside to the pool area to explore. Angelica's tour was over and Char was stuck in traffic.
And we are finally off...after waiting and waiting..Char shows up! Angelica has texted that she was waiting but lots of "stray men" were about and she was headed to a bar to wait for us. (Like that would be so much better, right?!) IDK
Meanwhile Angelica had been in the bars for sometime drinking hurricanes and sampling the night life. So somehow she staggered (yes, really) over to where we were. She would so KILL ME if I posted her picture, but it was really funny!
We sat for awhile and then did a walk about. Oh and the fog had rolled in...making everything even MORE CREEPY!
Which is considered the MOST haunted place in New Orleans. Which is one of the MOST Haunted places in the US. #FunTimes
And Yes, something did happen there. We were standing there hugging the lamp post (As I like to do) see my last trip, anyway. Char said, "LOOK! DO you see that little boy?" I looked and saw a approx 3-4 year old blonde headed boy wearing a green stripped sweater (rugby stripped) standing towards the end of the street. Angelica didn't see him (But she was still drunk and confessed at this time she had been sitting on the ground in the alley earlier, WTF?) I knew he wasn't really there, couldn't be. But we went to see anyway. Char was gonna rescue him. I was gonna recuse her. We got there and nothing there but a fire hydrate which looked nothing like the boy. Odd huh? And no, We hadn't been drinking anything other than coffee.
We moved away from the alley and hailed another cab. Char went back to the room, while Angelica continued her search for the best Gumbo. I went with Angelica and took more pictures of the fog, (your welcome, lol). I was tried but we had fun.
How is your week going? Overdosed on tinsel and nog yet? Yep, I'm right behind you. These last few months have been straight (to the hips!) parties and events. I have sworn off cake, pie, candy and the nog till New Years Eve or at least for breakfast.
Earlier in December the girls and I went out to celebrate Angelica's birthday. She is yet another of my many Sagittarius friends. Meaning she knows how to party. She also was on last weeks New Orleans adventure. As we headed home I asked her what she planned on next? She recommended a 5 day raw grass and tree bark cleanse after the of 'Nawlins Debauchery. (Hey, I wasn't the one eating alligator in dive bars, but ok.)
I actually 1/2 assed blogged about ONE of her birthday dinners/lunches/adventures already. My camera refused to cooperate and the entry was sans my usual blurry pictures, so after fixing the problem, (Uploading. not blurry) here please to enjoy a rather crappy dinner but with great company.
And then when they didn't show up we waited and waited. I started texting and finally figured out they were in THE WRONG TOWN! OMG! So then we waited and waited for them to arrive. #TOOFUNNY
We had a nice visit even though the food wasn't all that. Angelica and LS headed back to San Marcos and Vanessa and I headed to the shops. Why waste an opportunity?
Just an average day, except they went to wrong town...LOL This will probably be the last time we will see LS as she is moving across Texas. She promised to come back for visits, but it is still a sad event.
In trying to plan a party for her going away nothing worked out. She was here while we were in New Orleans and when we returned she was in California for a week, then its New Years and krewe is all tied up. A few friends are going to be NYC to see the ball drop, while others have family events, so WTF?!? Come back to visit in Feb. for your "going away party"?!
Catch you later-
Hope all is well with you.
It's Christmas Eve here in Texas. I have a ton of pictures and stories to blog about from the recent New Orleans adventure. :D I'm working on them, so ONE DAY they shall be done.
In the mean time, I am happy to report all my parcels came in while I was gone!
And I was surprised with Christmas flowers on my return home! :D Maybe I should go away more often??!? Naw, you know if you read here much I get flowers at least once a month. #Spoiled and I know it. lol
The flowers are HUGE! They didn't photograph well, maybe cause I was using my iphone? But they are really, really pretty. I just ran into the guy that sent them and he was like, "I am so sorry they have cedar...Why would they do that???" (I am allergic) but it was a very kind & thoughtful gift. I consoled him by telling him the florist made it look very wintery, she didn't know. So no worries.
But Rick better step his game up, huh? :x
And just a little while ago I returned home from the office (yes, its still there) and found this sack on my front porch.
No note, just cheesecake goodness! Don't know which of my buddies left it but it was a very Sweet surprise! I am so lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful, caring people and thats the best present of all. (Well that and cheesecake..)
Catch you later- I'm gonna have cheesecake NOW!
How are you? Hope all is well. This is Part #1 of the December New Orleans trip. I have already blogged a wee bit about it...here andhere. But this is the actually the beginning of the trip. (I'm still living an inception kinda life.) WTF?!
I should make yet ANOTHER cat. for "birthday parties" as I seem to go to sooo many of them. LOL Anyway this was a surprise party for my besty that lives in New Orleans. We flew out and were sworn to lie to her until the night of the dinner. She's (the one) who reads my blog/getglue/tweets/instagrams/dayre so I had to post I was adventuring to Panama or she would know and I would be killed! Or at least they would make sure I never forgot I was the one who spoiled the surprise. #Suffer4Life
And try to pack for formal events, late nights in the Quarter and Winter/Summer temps. WTF?!?! Not so easy. :( I also noticed my wallet was getting dirty *yuck* so ended up taking a chance and washing it.
As the weather turned off warm again and I was attempting to pack up, #SuperExcited - When suddenly everyone around me falls ILL. :X EVERYONE. I mean Everyone is ill from my mother to the gardner! I tried to back away slowly and not get sprayed with germs but #FML!
You know I ended up sick too. Fuck! So pissed off! ^*^*&%*(%^(&%^&@$^%$@!!!! Cover your ears boys & girls. I was not a happy camper. I had been looking forward to this adventure for MONTHS! And now I was actually too ill to have much %^$&$ fun. HELL!
I didn't tell Angelica or Char I was ill. I looked like death but they pretended not to notice. #TrueFriends over look your zombie face & crazed eyes...
Drove to airport to find it at Over flow! WTH?!? Oh right! It's Christmas!
My big purchase in the Austin Airport. And Yes, it pisses me off that I paid over $5.50USD for 2 regular size bottles of water and its a shit brand I don't even like. Grrr. But it falls under what are you going to do? You are hostage, since you are not allowed to bring water in + I am sick and need fluids. :o
Ok, I will stop bitching and get on with the story...
And if you still believe "getting there is 1/2 the fun" then your not flying commercial.
* ___ *
No pictures in Dallas Airport either. I didn't even have time to buy more water, good things I got 2 the first time. #AlwaysPrepared cough, cough and if you believe that one your new here.
We landed, raced out of the plane as I pulled girls after me. We took the train to another part of the airport because our gate was way far away. And I jumped off train, still pulling the girls, to the gate as they were doing the final boarding call for our flight! I really hate those tight connections. But we did make the plane and it was a smooth flight to New Orleans.
No pictures in that airport because I was puling girls to grab luggage and get in taxi. LOL
Meanwhile at the *hackstand (Thank you Steve for teaching me that word) you are asked where you want to go and then given a paper to show you just how much it's gonna cost.
And yes, you know I knew the cost since I visit pretty often. So I had already warned the girls. We had a nice trip into the Quarter and checked into our hotel.
They fell out while I dealt with the hotel reservations. I don't even remember what we ate that night??!
All I know was my cold/flu/zombieillness was really bad and I slept for a few hours. Its a rule, you see while in the Quarter you are never allowed to sleep more than a few hours, Why? Because there is always so much going on and you need to be out there exploring! LOL
I did go out later and find Evian at a corner store. And the girls and I ate a late supper somewhere. It was good, I was just really tired so no pictures. Oh! I almost forgot! We stumbled across a film crew. It was set up to shot a scene for (Someone said) American Horror Story? We stood around for approx. 2 minutes and saw nothing exciting so we took off. #AttentionSpanofa2yearOld
To be continued-
See you at the Airport!
How are things? OMG is all I can say. It has been a whirlwind of activity these last few days! I'm traveling, I'm ill and It's the Holidays. So in no kinda order at all here is a bit of our adventures..
I flew out with 2 other girls to New Orleans (USA) and that itself was an Adventure. We went for a top secret surprise party. (Read just a wee bit about it here.) I have about 1,000 stories already, lol
And after the Formal party (Which I was too ill to attend #FML) there was an AFTER PARTY Which I did make myself attend. And AFTER the AFTER Party 3 of us went to the Casino. #ThePartyNeverStops.
I admit to being so tired I could not see straight. :o We took a cab and decided to gamble for a while and then meet up and regroup. I had
This was my second visit to Harrah's this year. Click here if you want to read about the other visit. But I was too shy then to take any photos in the casino. *They used to not let you, but now how to stop all the smart(ass) phones??
Speaking of smart(ass) I was also in Vegas this year. Crazy, huh? Esp. when you know I'm not a gambler! Truth is I just like to party..lol (There I admitted it! #TruthIsOut)
The only reason we went this time was Angelica had never been and so we MUST TAKE HER. Why at 4:00 a.m. & after all the events I got no clue...#SeemedLikeTheThingToDo
Anyway I'm sorting through the pictures of "all those events" now...so many longer posts to come. Hopefully pictures will be better too. WTF?!?! Sad, right? :(
OH! And the next night at 2:00 a.m. we were down in the haunted section (which I love too) when the fog rolled in & shit got a little weird. :X
So more to stories to come. But for now I gotta sleep.
Take care and Happy Holidays!
