cage the elephant.

this past weekend was fairly lovely.

I went to see
Cage the Elephant 
@ House of Blues.

love that venue a lot.

we caught happy hour @ guadalajara before the show.
another one of my favorite things lol 

the show was so great, but I will say
1. I am either getting old.
2. they were a rowdy bunch of concert goers.

they were moshing like crazy... which I do not understand.
If I am going to push you around, it is bc I am not happy.

anyway, I lost an earring & have a fun bruise on my foot, but I will say we hung in there with the best of them! 


I watched Ginger all weekend.

I love her so very much,
she cracks me up.

she judged me hardcore for watching RHOA reunion.


and this pretty lady got married this weekend!
sad I had to miss it, but she looked beautiful & looks like it was a ton of fun! 


have a good one...
I wish I could just lay in the sun ALL day.
it is perfect!

that friday.

It is Friday!

which means I should have a post on a super fun friend, but
I will be honest for a min and tell you... this week flew by!
I feel like yesterday was Easter.

so next week,
you can meet a new pal.
this week you get my randomness.


"put your records on" just came on Pandora.
today has the potential of being really great!


I have been eating like a pig lately.
it is ridiculous.

first it was the holidays and all that great food, then my girls at work bringing me cupcakes, then valentines candy, then easter candy, & going to eat with friends...

I would blame it on hormones & just being busy... but it is most def willpower that is against me,
which makes it worse.

there is always another Monday... lol


we are getting ready for summer at work and I couldn't be more excited!!

I def kept one of those beach bags... as a recovering perfectionist, that is a great reminder.

I call the girls that work for me- "my girls"
I should stop doing that bc I've had a few people ask me if I have kids lol

but these girls are too cute & we are having a great time at work, but I hope more than anything they are learning things.

sometimes I try and teach them just little life lessons, nothing to do with work.
like static guard... spray it in your hair like hairspray so your hair doesn't stick to you.


I have had a major obsession with over sized sweaters lately.
or those chiffon cover ups.

comfortable & cute. 


what is up with our Rockets?!

we HAVE to win.


I have had my customers open up to me so much lately...

I hear about heartache, breakups, celebrations, graduations, first dates,
trouble with kids, getting pregnant, friendships, etc.

"Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them" -Marc Jacobs.

I so love living life with people.

I am 100% girl when it comes to dang pinterest quotes.

they get me every dang time.



oh heyyyy:

stolen from Vanessa. 

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Saturday: work/movies/Alida's garden party/pin the horn on the unicorn


Sunday: Easter/brunch/family time/finally got some sun


Hope y'all all had a great weekend!!

first things first,

to my wonderful dad 
and my sweet friend, Alida! 


it is def birthday season it seems, and this weekend we celebrated 
Liana turning 25 by heading down to Bourbon Street!

It was my first trip to NOLA,
and let's just say I learned a few things:

1. Drinks taste better when served out of fun containers.
hand grenades are delicious! 

2. it was "Blair's Big Easy Bachelorette" Weekend.

who knew?! Blair didn't, but people made shirts and everything. 

3. It is Bourbon Street... "This Ain't Sesame Street" 

4. Liana is pretty and I am a gangsta. 


5. We're just like you... only prettier. 

6. Bloody Marys are a new favorite of mine.

just another sign I am getting older...

7. NOLA is very pretty.
I heard a ton of mixed reviews, and yes it can get ugly at 3am, but overall it was really nice!
(minus the strip clubs lol)

8. Palace Cafe is great!

Liana's bf is a solid restaurant picker.


lots of fun was had for sure!

when I grow up

When I grow up, will I still:

-love sour gummy worms?

-cry when I scratch my rims?

-call my parents "mommy & daddy"?

-not like waking up before 8:30am...ever!

-take real silly selfies?! 

-feel like I am playing "dress up" when I wear lipstick?

 lots of fun @ the Rockets WIN last Friday!

-feel like a gangsta?

-watch Real Housewives of Atlanta, OC, and Beverly Hills?

-wear heart shaped sunglasses?

-eat mac n cheese for dinner?

-paint my nails hot pink?

-laugh when it is awkward?


maybe I just won't ever "grow up".

Happy Tuesday, enjoy this ridiculous weather!

who is she?! pt. 8

Hey, hey it is  Alida!

Alida is the most precious friend ever, we grew up on the same street as kids & went to school together.  She graduated from UH (go coogs), attended the Disney College Program, worked very hard for HEB, and now is a Business Analyst for Pisco Porton. 

and hello... she is gorgeous!

What is she wearing?
Lately I feel like all I wear is slacks and a blouse (blah work clothes) but I can’t WAIT for spring and summer weather to come so I can break out the sundresses! I love love love dresses….and ice cream. Oh my goodness a dress with ice cream prints all over it would be perfect.

What is she listening to?
Bear Hands, Birdy, Beirut, Paramore and basically anything they play on Alt Nation

Where is she going?
Disneyland in June! I have an obsession so I am trying to go once a year and California will always have a piece of my heart. Something that’s happening sooner…Captain America 2 this Friday.

What is she reading?
I just started Panic by Lauren Oliver but one of my favorite books to re-read is The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom. It’s purty good.

What is she working on?
Does saving money count? Because I feel like that is a project I have been working on for years lol I would have to say that and crossing things off my bucket list (visit the Ice Hotel, ride in a hot air balloon, sing the lyrics to a rap song without missing a beat, etc) And those 2 projects probably don’t mix well together

Who is she with?
Family, friends, my doggies, my friends’ doggies, and Stephen. He’s a stud.

What is she afraid of?
Did you hear they are rebooting IT!? WHY? I hate clowns. 
And I hate balloons because they pop without warning and they are usually associated with clowns.

What is she hoping for?
To continue to grow and have a happy life! To create a family, become an aunt, a mom, and grandma. Ya know the whole enchilada. And meet Jonah Hill? I think we could be good friends.

What is her favorite part of the day?
On weekdays it’s getting home from work and snuggling in bed with my 2 fluffy pals while reading a book. Sometimes Netflix is involved.

What is she eating? French Macaroons and lots of Italian food.

What is she drinking?
Green tea with a little vanilla cream.

What is she loving?
Macaroons, having Sunday’s off,, the 75 degree weather, anything Disney, and my new job.
(Should I have said friends and family? Because them too!)

What is she watching?
Pretty Little Liars, Once Upon a Time, New Girl and Dawsons Creek. Yup. I’m not ashamed of any of that lol

What is her favorite quote?

“But all the magic I have known I’ve had to make myself”-Shel Silverstein

So cliché but so right.


My dear Alida,
I am beyond blessed to have you in my life,
I wish you all the happiness!


Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
the weather is supposed to be no bueno & I have work to do,
but I am def going to try and get some "me" time in.
