Look what happened now...
It's hard to believe but on the 22nd my blog will be 4 years old! So much has happened in the last 4 years I can't even begin to list it all. My life has changed in so many amazing ways and I have met so many awesome people over the last 4 years.
I started this blog as a personal way to keep up with my trips, odd purchases, best cafe finds, life events and recipes. You know, personal shit that no one would care about but me, but somehow you found it and read my posts, then came back for more. #WTF?!
But seriously, since 2012 it has evolved into so much more. I have shared much more of my personal life than I ever thought I would, but I have also met some incredible people too. You still don't leave comments on the posts, but email me wonderful messages. Thank you for your continued support and love!
If you want to read the beginning posts…they are short of course, Click here. Mostly it's Chritsmas stuff, me bitching about my mother and talking about the world not ending. Do you remember that was a big thing way back in 2012?
Since 2012 I have written 350 blog posts under “Travel” - Meanwhile “Loot” has 105 entries while “Food” has a huge 242 posts, not surprisingly 69 of those were “Vegan”.
“TMI” 42 - soon to be 43 as I will file this under that topic, lol. Surprisingly I only have 25 entries on “Dating” yet every month I am asked dating advice and those posts are read religiously.
Shaking my head, ya'll know I'm divorced, right?
You've seen my hair change colour many times over the years. You have also seen my obsession with filters and stickers and you have pardoned my blurring photos.
But most importantly you have continued to read my random nonsense. I want to say thank you! And thank you for putting up with my long absences, which are growing more and more frequent. Thank you for reading, your kind emails and your friendship. It means the world to me!
2017 looks likes it going to be a crazy, fast paced year full of adventures. I hope you can come along for the ride!
Happy Valentine's Day!
So what do most people do in Texas to celebrate? Rope some cows? Naww- thats reserved for special days. But seriously, most women receive flowers, gifts, candy, etc and then the couple either goes out to eat or away for the weekend. Some people celebrate on cruises or romantic get aways. Most just have the romantic dinner, exchange gifts and go back to work Monday.
What did you do? How do you normally celebrate?
Most of my friends went the dinner route, one went to NYC for the weekend. (Her husband is an over achiever, :D) There are a lot of weddings on Valentine's Day too. Vegas is always fully booked as well. I know because I was in a wedding not that long ago in Vegas. It was an amazing adventure in itself, one day I will write it up.
I'm currently packing up now, for my next extended trip. I'm sure you will be so glad when I go back to posting holiday pictures and stop writing so much random crap..all I can say is ditto!
See you at the airport~
It's hard to believe, but this Blog is about to have a birthday. Making it a Sagittarius, which makes total sense as it's all about adventure and putting my foot in my mouth, just like a real Sagittarius.#WTF?!
I started Blogging here on Dec. 2012. (Read the sad little post here.) I was talking about the end of the World (A good time to start a blog, right? #WTF was I thinking?) So after I realized the world wasn't going to end, I started sharing random bits and pieces of my life. As I go back over the archives I am amazed at some of the posts. Cringing and crying at a few of them...
Way back then (cue the Wavy lines and time warp music) I took more time editing the pictures, putting stickers on and cute borders...
Now the pictures are better quality (I think) and less cutesy. Your welcome.
I also never showed my face in the blog. I figured no one wanted to see who I was and maybe I was too old to be blogging such dumb ass shit. Now I don't really care, I post blurry pictures of myself all the time, lol and am proud of my age, (Sorta.)
I still write about my travels, shopping and my friends some. I don't post pictures of them, because I want to keep them in my life and not have them hating me. #Truth I stay vague and then they can't tell if I am speaking about them or someone on another continent. Plus most of the people in Texas really do carry guns...
I still don't write too much personal information. I am private, plus I figure you don't want to read all the drama any more than I want to write it.
Just about every month I do the "Best of the Month" for the most clicked on blog posts and I promise to write more on the topic of dating. It's usually always in the top 5 of the most read/shared/clicked on posts. Every month I usually write nothing more on dating. Why? Because I don't care, and
Dating is HARD WORK + some men are EVIL bastards, (you know who I'm talking about) so I am sour on the whole dating topic for a bit longer.
Oh and I got married again. Did I tell you that?
Maybe one day I will talk about it, but not today.
I also seem to be traveling a lot more. So more of the posts are travel themed, about time, right? The post vary around the amount of time I have and the quality of my wifi connection, lol, since I'm usually late for the next adventure.
Also lately I've been working hard on moving from life long vegetarian to vegan. Plus I really like the idea of RAW not cooking. So I have posted a few recipes, shopping hauls, and write a bit about the difficulties making the transition.
There have been many other changes here, but mostly the fact that as I get older I am more comfortable being who I am. I noticed it in the posts and see it the mirror, I think the success of the blog has had a lot to do with that. So go cut yourself an extra big piece of birthday cake, (Don't worry its raw vegan after all) and know that I do appreciate you taking the time to come back day after day to read my silly ramblings.
Thank you for reading this little blog for 3 years now - you rock!
Its been so busy here - I have not posted a proper post in sometime (maybe ever?) Last weekend I worked 1/2 a day then raced to Subway and devoured a salad before racing to meet the ladies for shopping and drinks. We met up in New Braunfels.
We went to several shops (I thought the mixture of shops here were a bit odd, IDK) and roamed around.
Finally stopped for drinks. I had tea (Since I don't drink) and had a date later. I raced outta there home to shower and changed again and was out the door.
Left there and headed to the new X-men movie. Wolverine is my fav so I was excited.
It was VERY GOOD. Go and see it. :D
I made it back home after 2:00 a.m. (or June) lol It was a nice Saturday all in all.
Sunday up early to jog (not). Actually I was up for the breakfast taco delivery. Was starved after that awful salad at Carinos.
Sunday afternoon I went to a housewarming/BBQ (no pictures) as I didn't stay long. I was invited to 2 parties Sunday night but didn't attend. #NotSocial went home to sleep, zzzz zzz zzzz zzzz zzzz #LifeofTheParty lol
Any way, how was your weekend? Ready for Summer? It only gets crazier and faster from here on out.
See you at the airport-
Another month gone....

How are things? Been so busy here. Work, Life, etc. I did mange to visit Char the other day for a bit. Its always so relaxing at her house. I love the quiet of the place. :D
Speaking of quiet...
I've been trying my damnedest to not get dragged into other peoples drama. So many couples are breaking up right now. Its so sad. :(
One of my friends told me she felt all alone, like a "bird on a wire" the other day. Then I saw this while I was pumping petrol. Poetic and sad, i guess. Break ups are never easy. #LonelyBirds
I will cheer you up from this depressing post with super sweet cupcakes.
Actually with all the fruit I'm eating I'm not even craving sweets, for the 1st time in my entire life, wtf? If it was this easy why did I wait so long? IDK...Guess its that change thing, everyone is afraid of change...
Catch you later-
