bad blogging week! eeeeeek

SOOOO i am REALLY sorry i have been MIA lately. i have been working TONS and TONS and starting to feel the lack of sleep i have been getting. hence my LITTLE sore throat (yes, i am never sick, so i will BOLD the "little" part). BUT a little recap for your viewing pleasure...

i have been working ridiculous hours & working really hard on SO many different projects.
owning your own business is a LOT harder BUT more rewarding then i thought it would be! i am loving it though and can't WAIT to show everyone the cuteness that is about to come.... stay tuned. it WILL be worth it.

i start "intense" training next monday for soccer. and when i say intense, i mean, NOT 6 hours a day anymore, BUT a good level to where i am pushing myself BUT not killing myself. no more torn calf muscles for me. thanks. (ps. our indoor team on tuesdays, the thundercats) are legit. please come watch. we will school you.

i am ALSO reallly realllllllllly excited to head to Santa Clara this weekend for my FAVS (aka TIFF'S) birthday bash. the BIG 24 is just around the corner and i am SO excited for our reunion with everyone. and of course PINKBERRY. yessssss.

other than that, i have been busy working at the salon & of course watching my favorite weeks shows (bachelor, idol, greys) you own my heart.

ANYWAYS, this shall hold you over til next week. i am sorry for the lack of blogs BUT it will be worth it when you see what I've got up my sleeve. until next time......

i did not send out another 143,768,300 resumes, and still have NOT heard a thing.

it's that time again,
and i'm joining in for not me monday.

here ya go...
i did not eat too much for the Superbowl.
and i definitely did not win the 3rd quarter square.
i did not witness our indoor team lose terribly to a team that was playing down a man.
ugh. still doesn't make me cringe.
i did not get my car broken into on Sunday morning and they did not steal all 1,000 Cd's!!! (this is not a picture of that incident)

i did not laugh my butt off, again... to the funniest movie ever: step brothers.
i did not spend over an hour looking online for sewing machines and compare prices.
nope. i did not do that.
i did not get excited knowing i get to see my love in less than a month!
i did not spill printer ink all over the office carpet,
and i definitely did not smudge it even worse with a towel.
i most definitely did not get excited planning my trip
this year with peter to HAWAII.
i did not laugh the entire 2 hour special
of Conan O'Brien on inside the actors studio.
and lastly, i did not want to throw my laptop out of the window when it wouldn't turn on,
NOR i did not want to run over it with my car (yes, the one with a missing window).
