Weekend Recap & Vampires.

Quick weekend recap:
Friday was my actual birthday and my momma asked me where I'd like to have dinner. After some thinking and craving, I decided on Wasabi's for some good ole Hibachi filet mignon, and of course, sour apple Saki. After dinner I considered getting a tattoo BUT it wasn't the right time. One day I'll own permanent ink, but Friday wasn't the day.

Saturday & Sunday Jason and I enjoyed a much needed simple weekend. We slept in, had some R&R by the pool, and took Lola to a vet appointment. Lola freaks out every time she walks into PetSmart. Her car ride was the height of her excitement. Look how cute she looks. And yes, she's finally getting a summer cut next week, so bye bye cute locks.

  It's just to darn hot for all that adorable white fluff. Speaking of hot, who's into True Blood?! We are totally True Blood fanatics. We join some friends every Sunday for TB pre-show shenanigans but this year we got HBO so we might have our own private TB parties. I was watching some of Season 3 and realized how much I totally miss the spunky writing, "His cheese done fell right off his cracker." <-- Hilarius!!

Maltipoo puppy Lola playing

I had to share this phone video I took of my crazy little dog. Apparently this is ca,lled nesting. The only way she'd look up and stop was if I said 'treat'. She did finally get a treat after all my bluffs.

Early Birthday Bash!

What a weekend. My weekend was filled with girlfriends, jello shots, sangria, cupcakes, and lots of photos. My birthday is June 17th and my friend Dawn also shares that fabulous date. We planned an early birthday cocktail party at my place to get the night started with our lovely sexy girlfriends. I tried my best to behave and count points but that really didn't happen. I enjoyed the food and jello shots, I think everyone else did too.

                                                   Birthday girls!!!

My bestie Sondra baked up some perfectly pink cupcakes. Can't have a birthday without cake. Right?

We took lots of photos..

It was a phenomenal birthday celebration and it couldn't have happened without all my crazy, fun, amazing friends. AND I'm so lucky because more festivities are on this week's schedule.

Fave Thing Tuesday: Katy Perry

FaVe Thing Tuesday! I know most bloggers do something like this on Wednesday, but I'm into Tuesdays ;) My fave thing this Tuesday has been my favorite since I first heard her on the radio. I literally bought her CD and fell in love. I adore Katy Perry. I think she's talented, gorgeous, original, spunky, and absolutely fantastic. I'm all things Katy Perry lover and got a chance to see her in concert, the venue was small enough I was 3 people away from the stage (her) and was able to shout out an I LOVE U, and luckily got an I LOVE U back (lol)! Anyhow, I've loved this song for a while now but it finally is a single. The video to  Last Friday Night,T.G.I.F is my FAVE THING THIS TUESDAY! ENJOY!

Cupcake, why o why.

When you work at an office that refers patients you tend to get surprised by other offices with sweet treats. I love sweets, so it makes it difficult to turn down a delicious cupcake. Today our office was treated to a variety of cupcakes from Cupcake bakery.

 I personally don't love their cupcakes, something in them makes my tummy hurt, but I always have to try one (since I've taking on cake baking, you know, to compare notes, wink wink).  I was proud though, I just tried 1/4 of a cupcake, the Salted Caramel cupcake, to see what the hype was about.

First, you taste the sweet cream cheesy icing with caramel flavoring and then you get a slight salty hint, then comes the chocolate cake itself. Not bad, but 1/4 was plenty.

After nibbling on a cupcake, I felt guilty and knew the gym would make me feel better. Working out is a great way to release stress but sometimes the idea of working out after a hard day at the office is stressful. I planned on sweating it out but wasn't sure if Jason made it home to take Lola out. His schedule has changed so poor Lola was alone and waiting since early this morning. And since he didn't charge his lovely phone...I headed home. I have to create a workout schedule and stick to it, no matter what! As I say, tomorrow's another day and that means another opportunity to better myself.

Fave Thing Tuesday.

I totally am in love with Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt. I've tried many Greek yogurts and so far this is the best one. Not too sour, great taste, and a whip like texture. It's only 3 WW points and full of awesome protein.

Happy Tuesday!

Aaaand it's Monday.

I had a pretty nice weekend compared to the last one. Jason and I had a big to do list we were trying to accomplish before a little party I'm throwing next weekend. So far, this is what we've managed to scratch off our list.

To-Do List:

* Shampoo Carpets
* Find living room area rug
* Print photos and hang frames
* Clean kitchen from top to bottom.
* Do 4 loads of laundry
* Organize guest bedroom mess
*Find side table
*Clean desk area (aka Jason's man corner)

Yup, have plenty to go. Anyhow, here's our weekend recap. I was overdue for some me-time so I got a pedicure, pink polish please, and it was fabulous. Sunday, Jason and I headed over to Sullivan's Island for our 1st beach trip this season.

He surprised me with a beautiful pink sapphire ring! Happy one year anniversary to me! I am so lucky :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend! I plan on finishing my list this week so my little party goes off with a hitch!

May Recap.

May Recap. 

At the end of April and start of May I went on a little trip to visit my Dad and brother. I went to my old stomping grounds and place of birth, Puerto Rico. The trip was fun but it was definitely a family vacation. No lounging on the beach sipping on fruity frozen cocktails (it actually rained most of the time I was there).  We hit up Old San Juan ,the rainforest, and did a little shopping. 

 Bottles –N- Brushes! I finally did BNB and it was a blast. I can’t wait to do it again. I went with an old high school friend, Elizabeth. It was paint your best friend night aka your pet. We drank wine, ate cheese and crackers, gossiped about our lives, and of course painted our loving pups.

May 11, 2010 is our wedding anniversary. Our first year as Mr. & Mrs. has flown by! Jason and I found a cute loft style apartment we both love, are attempting to decorate it with both our taste,  became doggie parents to our sweet maltipoo Lola, and adjusted to married life pretty well I must say.

 Our wedding was in St. Thomas so we had to leave our delicious wedding cake behind. It was a coconut pound cake with pineapple and coconut butter cream filling and icing. Not only was it beautiful but it tasted amazing. 

 I had Publix recreate our top tier, the best they could, and it came out actually kind of cute.
