My parents are livin’ la vida loca in Cancún while I’m over here trying to plan the earliest Friday night ever. What has my life come to???
It wouldn’t be a luau without legit hawaiian shirts from Forever 21.
Those two days I went to the gym this month really paid off! Ha. Sorry, Amber…
One bloody knuckle, two mai tais, and three rounds later!

I felt like an old lady after thirteen hours at the park and one rough ass ride on the matterhorn, but then I got carded and remembered that I’m still the paragon of youth.
It’s been a rough week with my 4th place bracket finish, Channing and Jenna’s uncoupling, and now this earthquake today.
At least I’m going to Disneyland tomorrow! Let Alicia’s birthday weekend commence 🎉
Kansas got killed today, but Michigan’s win still put me in first place! Their chance of beating Villanova is like one in a million, so I’ll just enjoy being on top while I can…
Currently #2 out of 75, but my bracket automatically wins first place if Kansas beats Villanova tomorrow! 🏀🏆🎉
I’m just as surprised as the boys at work who had to explain to me what a seed is.

We escaped the LA rain and road-tripped it to Arizona! The first of hopefully many Innings Fests did not disappoint. Good weather, great bands, amazing food…
Turn right after Waffle House??? These are my kind of directions!
I got lost going to work once (ok twice) because the house that I turn left at took down their white picket fence, so I drove right past it. I still can’t tell you what the name of the street is, but they put their fence back up, so we’re good! Ha.

In the event that this isn’t anything like that Survivor pool I joined and won without ever watching a single episode, I have a few questions, like how do you know if it’s a 12 seed team or a 5 seed team, and also what is a seed???
I need to make a change.

…or what you eat when your lunch buddy is observing lent (@ Hopdoddy Burger Bar)
If I didn’t know the Impossible Burger was plant-based, I would have never guessed it was meatless! And this is coming from a girl who loves her meat. I’m not about to give up ribs or anything, but it’s nice to know there’s a worthy (albeit pricey) alternative out there. We usually go to the farmers market for lunch on Fridays, and I could get four mexican hot dogs (and a stomachache) for the price of one burger. Def worth it, though.

I love seeing the outcome when people try my DIY Mid-Century Modern Coffee Table tutorial ♥
I’ve been itching to build something new for my place, but I’m not sure what. My sister’s husband thinks I’m making myself too comfortable in this apartment I’ve been wanting to leave for five years, and it’ll be that much harder (for everyone else) when I eventually move out of the sticks. (You ask someone to help you move during one Chargers playoff game ten years ago, and they don’t ever let you forget it!)
Were the tacos the best I ever had? No. But were the micheladas good at least? Still no. (@ City Tacos)
I should’ve known that this place was no bueno when I saw people drinking wine with their tacos, and the only mexicans eating there were the friends I came with.
Or as I like to call it… Thursday (@ Manhattan House)
Deane and her BF broke up today, so I drank her sorrows away with her since I’m such a supportive friend and all.
Wish I could turn you back into a stranger

I thought most of the people flying on Valentine’s Day would be on their way to see loved ones, but the majority of the passengers on my flight were headed to see Bruno Mars. Or at least that’s what their hooligans jerseys led me to believe…
I managed to snap this without getting elbowed in the face by all the asians with selfie sticks. My mom was one of them. Just kidding (she forgot hers at home).

I’ll have to make my way back here, if only for Virgil’s Real BBQ. And maybe that cute guy covering Stone Temple Pilots inside.

We lost my dad for 24 hours somewhere between the zip lining and the poker room at the Orleans.

Checked this gem off of my BBQ bucket list! Standouts were the beef rib (my go-to), brisket burnt ends and the “dam” hot arkansauce.
Till next time! (@ Palms Casino Resort)
Happiest birthday, Shi! I love you more than I love homemade waffles. And that’s saying a lot.

Weekly meeting (@ Tacos Tu Madre)
All the ladies have been complaining about how cold it is in the advertising department, so our boss surprised us with these jackets to keep warm.
Wouldn’t it have been more cost-effective to just turn down the A/C?
Also, does this come in black???

I love it when Weird Science is playing in the break room at work, and I get to stare at Chet’s sweet ass while I’m eating.

I think the bigger question is whether or not I’d be willing to let it go for someone who refers to Santa Monica as “SaMo”.

A simple thank you will suffice!
Actual footage of me waking up for work today after being on vacation for two weeks. Yikes!
…or this week’s edition of Mayan burns the bread rolls. Just kidding (this was the second time I burned them this week). As soon as my mom smelled the smoke, she was like, “STRIKE 2!”
I’m sure my parents can’t wait for me to go back to LA tomorrow! Ha.
