18 Things

April 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

1. I turned 18 today. I guess I’m not a baby anymore.

2. Thanks to my lovely sister and amazing parents for a splendid birthday weekend!

3. I can never get sick of the Houston Galleria. I got a few new, pretty things that I’ll post about soon.

4. All in all, I had four Magnolia cupcakes and 2 slices of Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes. And I don’t regret it one bit.

5. No matter how much time passes by, I always have the best time with three of my best friends. This time, we went to Freebirds and Jamba Juice and had a ball.

6. Freebirds is amazing. But anything below a Monster burrito is for wimps.

7. Why is this post primarily about food?

8. I’m counting down the days till I get my Macbook Pro. Blogging should be a LOT more consistent once it gets here!

9. School has gotten spectacularly chill lately. There’s only one-and-a-half months left and it’s gotten down to reviews, testing, events, holidays, activities, etc.

10. I love it when my whole family is under one roof.

11. Graduation is so soon. I’m really starting to grasp that my life is about to majorly change.

12. I’m two years away from being twenty. Holy Batman.

13. I treated myself to a bottle of Essie’s Ballet Slippers today and it looks so classy.

14. I have been doing research on San Francisco and its shopping, restaurants, sights and scenes, and starting to get really excited about moving there come fall.

15. I need new shoes pronto.

16. I need to clean my closet pronto.

17. Lots and lots of traveling to be done soon.

18. 17 is going to be a hard year to beat, but I have faith that 18 is going to be the best year yet.


Snapshots {What I’ve Been Up To}

April 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

My blog has been much neglected this past month. I have no particular reason, except perhaps I had a healthy dose of bloggers’ block. I have almost exactly two months until I graduate and I’ve been trying to spend time with all of my friends and family before flying merrily away to new beginnings and all that. Making memories. Consoling, congratulating, celebrating. March was mostly a splendid month, though it had its rough, mundane and lethargic at moments.

{ Best friends date – The King’s Speech, La Madeleine, Barnes & Noble/Starbucks }

{ Chicken Pesto Pasta and Raspberry Lemonade at La Madeleine }

{ Bread and an assortment of jams at La Madeleine }

{ Sweet Cream ice cream with fresh strawberries on a shopping excursion }

{ Cinnamon French Toast Poundcake w/ Maple Syrup Frosting for my daddy’s birthday }

{ At the Bayou City Art Festival with Brina }

{ Coffee ice cream –and very true words– on a hot day at the art festival }

{ Samosas and Mango Juice at the BCAF }

{ Supporting Brina and her group’s project – The Universal Wishing Well }

{ Final Four pandemonium at Houston’s Discovery Green }

{ With my best friends at Discovery Green waiting for The Hold Steady and Sublime with Rome }

{ Crazy lights, free sunglasses, and free concerts }

{ Sublime with Rome! }

{ I don’t practice Santeria, I ain’t got no crystal ball… }

{ NCAA stars Jimmy Fredette (BYU) and Nolan Smith (Duke… No comment.) }

{ Post-concert midnight pantry raids }

Point is… March was a very busy, very fun month! Hopefully, April will be just as successful. What with my birthday coming up soon, that should be no problem at all. I should be back on track with posting three to four times a week also, so here’s to inspiration and motivation and fun times.
