Quote of the day:

“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”- Bob Moawad

Theme song: Every now and then I go on a Bob Schneider kick. Here's one of my favorites: Flowerparts
Gotta get it done: work work work!
Breakfast beverage: going searching for coffee when I finish this
Grateful For: the awesome people in my life
Looking forward to: the little things.

What an exhausting week last week was. It was so much fun karaoking at Corkscrew on Thursday, Mixers and Elixers was a BLAST, the wedding was wonderful, and Sunday was a day of nonmovement for the most part (I went to church, chipotle, and Salentos. That's it.)

I'm going on about 3 hours of sleep last night. The past five nights or so haven't been much better. Must try tylenol PM.

This week isn't looking much easier. I'm not sure if I do these Monday posts more to tell you what I'm up to, or if it's just a way for me to remember everything that's going on.

Monday-thesis work, for real. This would also be a good day to get back on the exercise wagon. I've been slipping a lot lately. Darnit.

Tuesday- sushi with my favorite cousin (Sorry other cousins, he really is my favorite) Greg. It's been about six months since I've hung out with him and I'm hoping that will change now that he's settled in Texas for a while.

Wednesday-Bowling. My average is improving still, although it was so bad, I'm kind of happy it has no where to go but up. Last week I was most improved woman bowler. Woo hoo!

Thursday-Going to see "The Wiz" with Tina. Should be fun!!

Friday-Dinner for my good friend Tonya's birthday. Man this chick is funny-can't wait!!
new: Some friends have gotten me to start watching two new shows: True Blood and Mad Men. These are both boy tv series that I do not recommend which now I am invested in watching.

more new: I'm addicted to this song. Must get guitar fixed and learn it!!

have a good week! (pictures of the wedding are coming soon)

Wowzers what a weekend...the 10yr old nephew came to stay with me for 3 days. I love this kid like crazy. I knew he needed a get away from the norm so I planned a whole weekend of fun. Here's a rundown of alll the stuff we did.
Thursday night: Dave & Busters, came home and played cards and dominos til around midnight
Friday: Spacecenter and Astros game. The astros game was AWESOME!!!! and there were fireworks afterwards so we didn't get home until 11:30pm.
Saturday: lounged around the pool, Butterfly Center at the museum, Ice Age 3 in 3D, back to the pool. (We were going to do the Terra Cotta Warrior exhibits at the museum but the darn place closed early so we settled for the butterfly museum)
Sunday: church, buca di beppo, and gelato.

We both were completely exhausted by Sunday afternoon. Good times. ok there were a few times I forgot to feed him and he had to remind me that he was hungry, but I think that was the most responsible-ish I've ever had to be, and I passed.

ok so I've always considered myself someone of a treehugger--I love nature and the outdoors. Flowers are my friends (hence, exposing posies), and I'm generally ok with most critters (minus snakes. I'm TERRIFIED of snakes). The butterfly center was interesting. At first when they'd fly by my face I'd swat or duck like a dummy but then after a while it got better. The nephew had a butterfly guide and we went around trying to find each kind on the guide. He really enjoyed checking out the wings under the microscope. Maybe he found his calling? We'll see!

It's a busy week folks!
Tuesday: b-ball game with Keda and her kiddos (flash practice!)
Wednesday: bowling! We're still last place, but my average is improving
Thursday: Karaoke at Corkscrew with SPH buddies!
Friday: Mambo Kings at Mixers and Elixers!
Saturday: Wedding shoot!
Sunday: posssssssibly a maternity shoot for the lovely ninja-ette!

Future..um...bug guy?
