1. Sundresses is/are my favorite summertime clothes.
2. My favorite John Hughes movies is Pretty in Pink.
3. My MAC brushes is/are something I love to touch.
4. The full moon was supposed to be out last night or tonight. (I can't remember when)
5. I'm at the doctor's office right now. (I'm annoyed to be here again!)
6. When daylight fades it's night time.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to movie night with Jas, tomorrow my plans include some tax-free shopping and Sunday, I want to go eat brunch!
Life has been strange this week. I have spent days at the doctor. I don't have any answers. And I am annoyed to no end. The only good thing that I see in my immediate future is the tax-free weekend. That and date night with Jas tonight. I haven't had to use any of my leave at work because they are installing a new AC unit. And the bank has been closed since Tuesday. We are supposed to re-open on next Wednesday. It's all good. Paid vacation. Because it is not our fault that the AC keeps breaking. That's it. I should go. I am waiting at the doctors. Maybe I will get some answers today. :)

The weekend didn't start well. The rain came and qualifying was washed out. Things didn't look any better on Sunday. Unfortunately, the race was delayed until Monday. I set my Tivo Monday morning and went to work. I prayed that our weekly meeting would end quickly. And maybe just maybe, my client would cancel their appointment.
No such luck! But I had my computer on the leader board. And out of the corner of my eye, I was watching the live leader board. The race looked boring. And I later found out, it was boring. I skipped through Tivo tonight to watch the race highlights. Dale Jr. started P22 and finished the race P27. I'm not sure what happened there. He went from racing in the top 10 to P27 in just a handful of laps. Super G started P3 and finished P8.
I still don't know what happened. Here I was all excited that Jr. was doing well. Then he finished the race P27. Lols won the bet again. Jr. is now sitting P21 in the standings. Racing Gods.....are you out there? Do you remember Dale Jr? Can you throw him a bone? Please help him do well for the rest of the season. I've had fun with mine and Lols bets, but I think I am going to have to wait a few weeks to bet again. :)

1. It's time for a summer BBQ.
2. Lowe's; it's not a bad place for shopping.
3. I must be happy because I'm trying to be domestic.
4. Lipgloss is the best thing I have ever known.
5. My cooking is simply sad, but I'm trying.
6. The last time I laughed really loudly was this morning when I was talking to Mandy.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to dinner with Jas, tomorrow my plans include shopping for babies and Sunday, I want to watch Dale Jr take the checkers! :)

OK people, hold on! Yes, it is me posting again this week. I know. But the AC at work went out again. They decided that we can't do our regular bank business. We have the next few days off. Yay! Paid vacation until next week. This girl couldn't ask for anything better!
What wise things have I done since noon when I left my office? I called Zio's and ordered lunch to-go. Went to the mall. Because who doesn't want to shop? Actually I had to stop by MAC and pick up some Fix+. Trolled by DQ and picked up an Orange Julius. Then went to Zio's to get my lunch. How about that? All in under 30min.
Then I made it home just in time to watch my favorite soap.....GH! Love me some GH! I secretly wish to be rich so I can afford a wardrobe like the stars. Lately Maxi has been wearing the best clothes ever! Ever! But what was up with all the purple today? I know that purple is all the rage this season. I even had a purple blouse on today. But every scene had 2-3 characters in purple. The color is pretty, but really what was up with all the purple? Peeps do you have any idea? I wish I knew.
I also sat my rear end down and started to watch last weeks episodes of GH. I had them Tivo'ed and hadn't watched them yet. I am so into this story plot. Spinelli and Maxi are too cute! What a couple! And I can't get over the set design lately. Inspiration for the house. Lols.....are you reading this? Inspiration for my house!!!
Sonny's kids are becoming ridiculous! I can't believe how they went from toddlers to teenagers in a month. What the heck happened? Kristina is getting on my last nerve. And I really don't like this new Michael. The red head was better. Poor little Morgan reminds me of a mini mobster kid that is always getting picked on. And I feel so bad for Claudia loosing her baby. Why couldn't it have been Carly? Whatever! I am cheering for the brunettes from now on.
The Rebecca character is just strange. I miss sweet Emily. I swear. GH killed all the good characters off at once. There was Emily, Georgie, and Courtney. I'm sure I am forgetting more. But those are the ones I miss! But I know this show will continue to change. I would like to see more of the Robin story line. And Sam's. I really like Sam. I hope her and Jason get back together. I am totally a Jasam fan!
Those are the productive thoughts going through my head. I have been home for hours. Yes hours! All I have done is put on my workout shorts. Yes people I still have my work blouse on with all my jewelry. The only differences.....my skirt is on the floor, my shoes are next to it, and my hair is now in a messy bun. I did manage to eat lunch.....and a chocolate bar. I think I am also PMS-ing. Just by the simple fact that I have had 3 chocolate bars today alone! And I have watched 3 episodes of GH.
Jas will be home in a bit. The doggies are sleeping. And I am ready for a nap. What a vacation! Tomorrow looks more promising. Let's hope that it is more productive than this afternoon. I'm thinking Costco. I could get all domestic and make dinner for Jas. We'll see what tomorrow brings! :)

So peeps.....I did it! I watched the finale to the Bachelorette. And I'm not sure why. I haven't watched a single episode. But I think I should have. The gals at work have been going on and on about Jillian and her fashion. But I was pretty tired of the Bachelor/Bachelorette series since no one ever gets married! Ever! Except Trista and Ryan. But Jillian's style rocks! Can her stylist become my new BFF?
I am watching. Not so much for the story line, but because I love her clothes. I have no clue what is really going on. Or who she should pick. But these leaf shaped earrings. OMG! Where can I find a pair? They are big and fun. I want a pair so bad!
Then the moment that everyone is waiting for. The final rose. And I can't stop looking at this gorgeous pink dress. I will sell my new TV for that dress! Yes, that pink gown!!! I want it so bad. Yet, I have no clue...absolutely no clue where to find it. I would actually get married in it. Forget about the white dresses that I have been looking at. I want THIS pink one!
Wouldn't you know it. The season that I don't watch happens to be the most stylish! I could kick myself. But I think it was a blessing. Because I could just see myself falling in love with all of Jillian's clothes and jewelry. Had this been a few years ago.....I would have nominated myself to be the next Bachelorette. Just for the clothes, shoes, and jewelry! :)

My big bro called me earlier. Wondering what the heck has happened to my blog. I have no clue! Bro talk to me. Heck I didn't even know you read my blog regularly! I guess not all of my posts are showing up. I don't know where to begin to fix this. Stay tuned and I will try to find out. Big bro, don't fret. I will fix my blog! :)

1. Exploding nail polish is not the end of the world.
2. Sitting here, listening to the sound of rain falling, I want to go to sleep. (Rain=good sleep!)
3. Chocolate cake tastes so good!
4. Sometimes, putting others first is really hard.
5. Jemez Springs is breathtaking, really.
6. Well, maybe there is more time to sleep this morning.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to the big family dinner, tomorrow my plans include doing laundry and Sunday, I want to eat dinner outside!
Life is simple this week! Jas and I are going to a big family dinner tonight. EXCITED! Yes I am! My mom's enchiladas, Jas' mom's tortillas, sissy's cake, Ang's rice, and family time. I cannot wait! I don't have to work today. They are fixing the AC in our building. Yay! I might go to the mall. I want to look for some more "work" clothes. But I should really do some laundry. All of our clothes are dirty. No, seriously they are. :)

My little sis is preggers again! I am so excited. So I was told to wait a few days before I blogged about it. Sis I waited! I know mom and dad know now.....so I figure that everyone else knows too!
My sis and I met for brunch over the weekend. And she gave me the wonderful news. They are about 6 weeks preggers. Isn't that exciting? She is showing a lot sooner too! I had been wondering why in the world she had been sporting a jacket in the middle of summer. They are cute.....but it has been seriously hot outside! My little sis was just trying to hide the added pounds.
My precious goddaughter isn't even 9 months old yet! But my little sister and her man are the best parents ever! And they had been trying for another little one. I hadn't even known that. Little Sis, why didn't you tell me? But I am so excited about another little one!
Our family is just growing and growing! My big bro will have a little one at the beginning of February, my little sis is due on St. Patty's day! For those of you wondering.....me and Jas are not ready to start having babies of our own yet. Give us some time. Let us get married and then we'll talk. We love kids.....but we also love our life just the way it is. Congrats to my little sis and her ever growing family! :)

I really don't like the new MAC website. It is not as streamline or user friendly as the old site. I am really not happy about it either! I like to go dream at their website. But now I am just frustrated. How can shopping be fun if I can't stand the website? I am apparently not alone. Lots of MACaholics are not happy either! MAC are you listening? Change your website! Make us happy again! :)

1. Hamburger Helper and salad in a bag make a quick and easy dinner. (Fast, not healthy!)
2. The Guy Not Taken is the book I'm reading right now. (Moni gave it to me!)
3. July brings back memories of the ice cream man and swimming as a kid. (The life!)
4. Enzo was obvious. (When it comes to Lola!)
5. They say if you tell your dreams they don't come true.
6. When I have a rude client, I need time to think it over. (They don't realize who aproves the loans!)
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to dinner at home, tomorrow my plans include watching a few baseball games and Sunday, I want to go eat brunch!
Enzo came to Burque for a visit. He is obvious! He misses Lola. In another life, would they have been together? IDK Lola has been MIA. I only know what's going on in her life because of her blog. I miss her too! I think we have finally settled on a date for the wedding. Jas will miss some baseball.....I will miss the All-Star race. But we will have each other! :)

My big bro and I had lunch today. I felt like I was a teenager who's cool big bro was coming to pick me up from school. All the gals that I work with were excited to see him. My brother is just one of those cool guys. He has a swagger all of his own. It was a sudden lunch date with one of my favorite guys.
We ended up at Carrusso's.....our favorite italian place. It was nice to just sit and chat again. We hadn't done that in a while. He just seemed really happy. And then the big news.....baby #3 is on the way!!! I was really excited. So much so that I squealed like a school girl. And dropped his iced tea. But I am going to be an auntie around February 4th.
My big bro and sis-in-law had a dinner for my parents and my sis-in-laws parents last night. All 4 grandparents are over the moon. The kids have known since Wednesday and have done a good job keeping the secret. But my big bro wanted to tell me. I felt really special. After that, I couldn't let him buy my lunch. But he wasn't having it. He paid for it anyway. So I bought him ice cream! I convinced him to take me to BR on the way back to work. We celebrated the good news over banana splits. That I bought!
Little sis found out later this afternoon. Our big bro stopped by to help her with her fan. It was falling off the ceiling! She was excited and almost immediately called me to tell me! It is a wonderful day. We all know that they wanted more kids. But they were having some problems getting preggers. My niece and nephew had been blessings.....thanks to modern medicine they came rather quickly. So this news was more than welcomed!
And to our surprise, Jas and I got 4.2 visitors ealier tonight. haha Baring a BR ice cream cake no less! They asked me and Jas to be the baby's godparents. We are so excited!!! Jas is already trolling the Baby-R-Us website for a crib and cradle. Hold on there.....we have until Feb! Congrats big bro and your family! You deserve all the wonderful things that life has to offer! :)

Gardunosis a favorite of ours. Jas and I like to meet there on Friday nights. Sometimes with family, friends, or just by ourselves. The gals and I used to meet for Happy Hour or dinner on Friday nights. We would hangout, eat, catch up with each others' lives, drink, and enjoy the mariachi. I became incredibly close to Lols because of Gardunos. She worked there for a long time. In the mariachi of course! And after she left the group, we would still meet on the occasional Friday night.
But the memories are great! I can remember so many Happy Hours with us chatting about the new men in our lives. Maybe the newest and cutest shoes. Whatever we happened to be thinking. There was dancing with the mariachi. And the crazy fried ice cream!
The restaurant hasn't been the same for a couple of years now. No mariachi, no real fun! The memories and times we shared there will live on forever. I just hope that Gardunos is able to live past this summer. Here's to hoping our favorite hangout is still there when us gals get together again! :)

It's that time again peeps! It's Cinco de Mayo! I always think about Jose Cuervo on cinco. The 2 just go together like bacon and eggs. There is absolutely no reason at all. Just me thinking they go together. Today is a day to enjoy a margarita.....ora straight shot. Your choice!
Jas and I took the day off today.....and tomorrow. Why? To go to the LC. A friend of a friend is having a Cinco party. Nothing crazy peeps. Just a family friendly get-together. Most of the people going are mariachi musicians. One of the guys has a little girl that does folklorico dancing. All the little girls are going to dance. It should be fun! And we are excited to just get out of Burque for a day. Have some fun today.....but don't drink and drive! Bottoms up! :)

Can you believe that we made it to 1 year peeps? Craziness!!! I actually kept my blog up. You kept reading. This is a good thing! I would like to thank Lols for inspiring me to start my blog.....and for keeping me motivated when I didn't know what to post. This has been a fun year. I'm already excited about our 2nd year together. The posts about makeup, NASCAR, and good times! Thanks for reading and keeping up with me. :)

I am a HUGE fan of nail polish!!! Love it to the ends of the earth. Pink nail polish sends me over the edge. I'm not joking! I have been polishing my nails since I was 10. I'm not counting the nail polish I had when I was 5. The kind you got with those cheesy plastic kid makeup kits. (I loved it when I was 5 though!) Or when my grandma would paint my nails. (That was our secret too!) No I am not counting that. Just counting since I got to buy the nail polish of my choice and would paint my own nails. My mom was not happy. But we agreed on nail polish instead of makeup. When I was 15, I started going for manicures and pedicures. Not regularly, but often enough to love it! Every single darn time, I pick my polish. Then I sit and shake it. Every single time the lady gets mad at me. It usually ends in her telling me.....Don't shake the bottle. I still haven't learned. I know it causes air bubbles and all that. But it is a bad habit. :)

How do you brighten up a cold winter day? Paint your nails "For Audrey!" I am being completely serious here peeps! I have been eyeing this color forever. Really! For months I have been wanting it. The first time I seen it, Lols had her nails painted this adorable color! I just had to have it. But somehow every time I go to Sally's I forget to buy it! When I got the mail yesterday I was too excited for words! Lols sent me a bottle of "For Audrey!" Girly I luv you! It definitely brightened up my Tuesday night. The actual formulation is gorgeous too! 2 coats and you will be in a winter wonderland! :)
