So this is coming a tad bit late. At the moment I’m in Ocean City Maryland with my family…so I’ve been in the sun…feeling the sea breeze and maybe enjoying a drink or two. Last week was my birthday. I’m currently 29+1 and I plan on talking more about that later, as well as my trip for my big day- but that’s coming. For now you’ll just get a few snippets. Hope these photos find you well and I’ll talk to you all later!
1- on the 23rd…I had a seriously rough day at work. My phone was going off before I even got out of the house for work and more just kept happening and happening. I felt as thigh I never stopped. There was IT stuff going on…and new stuff getting implemented. Then I had to go to my part time job too. I’m pretty certain there’s no such thing as an easy week before a vacation.
2- blood.orange.margarita. So damn good. Had this at at Mexican restaurant in Atlantic City for my birthday. The made guacamole to order…so fresh and delicious.
3- after dinner we went (back to) gambling and I won a colossal win on the Michael Jackson slot machine…I don’t know exactly what happened but he was singing beat it and moonwalking and I ended up with 59 dollars. Holler!
4- we decided to go to the boardwalk for lunch the next day and found glasses with mustaches. We later wore them to the club and got loads of attention (both good and bad).
5- my friend took this photo of me that we dubbed “majestic native birthday princess”. Apparently when I pushed my glasses up it looked like a hair piece. I dunno- made sense t the time.
6- Saturday I made it home to my parents that had just gotten in from NC to go on family vacation and was surprised with a cake at dinner. I was very tired and should have made my way to my own house…
Some extras! Clearly my pup missed me but he’s in good hands this week. I’ve been getting photos sent showing him having a good time at my friend Brandon’s house. My eye also swelled up upon entry to my sisters and my house because I’d forgotten my allergy meds on my way to Atlantic City- so I just blew up when I got home. Elphie wasn’t trying to let me go on vacation. She paid n me and meowed at me a lot. She doesn’t meow a lot so it’s a pretty big deal.
And that’s it for now! I’m about to go and probably stuff my face with carnie food and get a belly ache on the boardwalk.
Another week has come and gone! Thank.the.lord. It’s been a rough one…I feel that the week(s) right before vacation (yes….I said vaycay) are the longest weeks everrrr. I’ve been working my bum off this week and tomorrow is my last day before vacation bliss. With sun, and maybe a little gambling, some drinks, and most importantly- delicious food! I’m not sure if you can tell but I’m pretty stoked. Not to mention my birthday is coming. Loads to do…any maybe a little something special for you all *wink*.
So here are the things I’ve been up to since last Monday:
1- Scrappy and I caught up on TrueBlood. I missed it on Sunday because my sister called…and then my parents called…someone called. I just remember being on the phone. I liked the books much better than the show is turning out- but southern vampires? Love. And Mr.Eric Northman….Nordic god much? Love it.
2- I finally got mini propane tanks for our mini grill!! I’ve been grilling like its nobodies business. Here we had chicken (duh), squash with onions and seasons in one packet and asparagus and other seasonings in the other. Yum.
3- my on the go makeup hotmess of a bag. Basically- I don’t wear makeup all day if I’m at my full time job. So around lunch or whenever I just get a minute- I break out my bag and slap a face on before I drive to job number 2.
4- my coworker asked me about my actual birthday for like 2 weeks straight about a month ago.so I stopped telling her and she forgot. So she gave me my gift a week earlier. Mmmm Wawa.
5- I left work excited to head home and pulled my sunnies out of my purse without inspecting….then I realized my vision was funny so I looked in the vanity mirror and this is what I saw- so I took a picture because that’s normal. And it’s funny. Don’t worry I popped the other lens back in. These 25 dollar on sale Betsey Johnson’s aren’t going without a fight.
6- I met up with my friend Liz to shop at Target (terribly awesome idea- always) and grab dinner/discuss my birthday plans. So then we decided we needed drinks to start prepping for nights (yes plural) out. Omg. We went to Houlihans and I got a strawberry basil lemonade (I forget what kinds of alcohol was in it) talk about dang delicious. And pickle fries- I die everytime.
So that’s what has been up. How have you been? Let me know what your week has been like. I also had a hilarious at a “pure romance” party with my eldest sister- which I don’t know if I’ll write about it. It’s basically a “ladies have needs” party of sorts- but it’s pretty hilarious and just an interesting way to hang out with your friends. Let me know if you’re interested in hearing about that.
Well I think I’ve rambled far too long.
