What's on my mind...


Via

What has been on my mind lately? 

+ Weekends go by so quickly. I (along with many others, I am sure) live for the weekend  I count down the weekdays and definitely dread the arrival of Monday. I seriously HATE going to sleep on Sunday because I know that I will have to go to work when I open my eyes on Monday. 

+ The following situation bothers me:
"What brings you all the way to Arizona from Florida?"
Me: "I actually moved out here with my boyfriend. He got a job out here"
"Oh... well that must be nice" with a look of disdain.
  Yes. I know it is not ideal. BUT you do not know me. You do not know my situations. Do not judge. This annoys the crap out of me!

+ Colon went to Tucson with some friends on Friday night for a concert. That left me here on my own for the night. I reveled in my alone time. I went to BJ's and enjoyed a delicious dinner with some yummy beer and finished off dinner with a glass of cream soda and a pizooki. Yes. I went alone. Do you think that is weird? DO you ever go to a sit down dinner alone?

+ I am SO in love with Four Peaks' Arizona Peach ale. I have found myself craving the taste of it every day since I tasted it for the first time two or three weeks ago. If you are ever in Tempe or Scottsdale, AZ I suggest you stop in and try  the AZ Peach ale. It will not disappoint.

+ I am loving food this weekend. First yummy scampi at BJ"S. Then, pork roast at Four peaks. AND yummy Bandeja Paisa from an Ecuadorian restaurant. SO freaking yummy.  Oh and did I mention that I also got to have a taste of one of my favorite drinks? 

Via

+ I am finally caught up with Game of Thrones and... OH MY GOD. Such an amazing show! I cannot wait until the next episode. 

+ We (Colon and I) are coming up on 6 years at the end of the month. Holy Cow. It's coming up so quickly. I am still undecided on what I am going to get him. 

...and now I am going to keep myself busy so I stop thinking about the 7:30 AM meeting 
I have tomorrow. I am already dreading Monday!

My heart hurts

My heart hurts.

Things have been swirling in my mind lately. Depressing things. Sad things. 

+ SO much bullying going on. 
I see it in the blog world. 
I see it in the media.
People gossiping about others. 
People treating others with so much disrespect and hate.
 It's so freaking sad. Why can't people be nice? 
Let others be. 
What happened to,
"If you don't have something nice to say, then keep your mouth shut!"
It hurts my heart.

+ My heart has been filled with so much anguish.
The Boston marathon bombing makes me cringe and sick.
My prayers go out to those people that have been affected.

Such a sad day.

Keeping myself busy...


What have I been up to the last couple of weeks?

+ Pulling weeds 
Who knew pulling weeds for 5 or 6 hours straight will leave you sore. 
I could hardly move for 2 or 3 days after. It hurt SO bad!

Trying to figure out how weeds grow so fast in Arizona.
How the hell is there so much green here?

Experiencing my first "dust day"
I woke up on Monday and I could hear the wind outside. 
Driving to work was insane because the winds were so strong.

+ Watching Doctor Who
Best. Show. Ever.
I am a Whovian!




+ Visiting breweries
Colon and I visited 2 breweries the past week.
Santan Brewery -I definitely recommend trying this place! 
Four Peaks Brewery - Try the Arizona Peach ale. To die for! SO good! 

Colon and I attended the Tempe Festival of the Arts
So much fun. I am so proud of Colon for being patient and walking around the festival with me. 

Start watching Game of Thrones.
Yes. I know. I am behind. BUT I am so addicted!

+ Work Work Work

...and now it's Friday! Time for a beer!

Interplanetary, Megastellar, Hydrostatic

Hi ya'll...

I know it has been a while but I FINALLY had the urge to write something. I just woke up this morning and thought, " I should post today". Here I am. I'm posting.

It's funny how that works. I am so moody. Sometimes, I want to be social, stalk  be all about the social media, and keep up with my friends and family. Then all of a sudden, I get to the point where I just want to fall off the grid. I just want to read all day and spend time alone. I tell you. I am crazy. 

Anyways. It's Thursday. Almost Friday. The weekend is near and I am pumped for it. 

So pumped that I decided to do my first and probably only  Throwback Thursdays post. 



When I first saw this button, I automatically thought of all of the embarrassing things that I liked when I was younger. 

Like...


DO you recognize this? I watched these movies hundreds of times. i especially loved the songs.

Come on... how could you resist this?




or this?...


I dare you to tell me that you do not remember this. 

That's it for today.

just a little funk

Yes. 

I am still alive.
 Still breathing.
 Just lost blogivation the last week. I promise I still love you guys. I still have been reading other's blogs. But it feels like my life has not been so exciting/ blogworthy lately. 

I guess, I am just in a funk
Just give me time to get out of this funk. 
I don't want to bore you with posts that I am just not feeling. 
I'll be back.

I promise!

I'll leave you with this out of focus picture. 

You see... I am still alive :)

Weekend Laziness

Have you ever read a book that consumed your thoughts? 
A book that you were unable to put down. 
A book that made you feel the emotions that the characters were feeling?
 A book that made you cry?

Well.. I sure as hell have. I have read many books like that and I have mentioned several of them on this here blog. BUT, earlier today I finished another one of those emotion-evoking books. I raved about Philippa Gregory several times. Her books have taken up my free time and have kept me coming for more. 

Today, I finished The Queen's Fool. At first, I was skeptical. It was not what I expected and my initial thought was " This book is going to be slow. Should I continue with it." Oh, how I was wrong. I started to feel for the character and took on the character's emotions. I actually cried as I was reading this morning. 

I know I keep going on and on about how good this book is and I know you must be wondering what the book is about. I won't give a summary here. I tend to give TOO much information and I do not want to spoil the story. I have linked the amazon website to the book title above. Check it out if you are curious!

I am sad to have finished this book and am looking forward to starting another one. Guess who the author of my next book will be...

-----

...and reading has taken up an hour or two of my Monday. It has been such an amazing day and the weekend was just as awesome. The last few days have been filled with

1. Blue Moon's while watching the Gators play basketball. 
Yes. We lost yesterday but I am still proud of my team. 
Good luck to all of the teams in the tournament!

2. Spending time around the house being lazy. This is a classic for us. 

3. Play The Sims.

Via
Love. This. Game. 
So obsessed.
 I have it on the computer and for the PS3.

4. Argue with Colon. 
He drives me insane sometimes. He ALWAYS has to be right.
 (I know he will say the same about me). 
He can be the nicest person but he can also be the rudest person I have ever met. 
(Again, he will probably say the same about me)
I still love him, though

5. Talk to my sisters, uncle and mom on the phone. I miss them terribly. 

I told you my weekend was lazy!

I hope yours was too!

Do you have any book suggestions?
