What a time to be alive.

Christine’s twin babies came early, so their big sister’s 2nd birthday party moved from Chuck E. Cheese to Denise’s backyard. No complaints here!
Can we just go on record and say that I’ve added a flat top grill, fire pit and pool to my list of must-haves for my future home???

I felt like an old lady after thirteen hours at the park and one rough ass ride on the

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.

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.

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.

My favorite home furnishing up front. I like to accent my home with bright reds and yellows & little black and white dogs.
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. (@
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.

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).

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???
Sounds about right.
