Another Rodeo Under My VeryBlingyBelt!

So glad to be back at the beach!  Rodeo was amazing (watching any/all activites from a Suite is highly recommended), my friends were fabulous (planning a trip to see Kid Rock again ~ he blew us away), I committed to run the Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon in Vegas this December, I missed my pooches ~ wait?  What was that?  Marathon? 
Over an afternoon with several longtime friends (in the very hot sun) consisting of many lbs of yummy crawfish and even more buckets of icy cold beer (did I mention the centerofthesun heat?), I agreed ~ no, wait, was challenged, badgered, whatevered into running the half in Vegas.  It's at night, they said!  Down the Strip, they sang!  How very cool, they exclaimed!  Thank God it is only March ~ I have time to train.  I am SO COMMITTED that I went to DSW and all I bought (other that the gorgeous Valero sparkly sandals and waytoocute envelope clutch) were two pairs of unattractive Saucony running shoes.  Sadly, once you're professionally fitted with running shoes, you know how horrid any other type feels after many miles. 
But first ~ 'AB's' "Totally 80's 30th Birthday Bash" this weekend.  Am looking forward to using 3/4 of a can of the silver/pink AquaNet minimum (name the new ozone hole after me) and throwing on my best FlashDance garb ever!  Cannot wait! 
Gotta get back to a little catch up work ~ still aiming for the sky professionally!

No mas, por favor...!

I am up to my ears in work and such!  No more can be added to my plate, thank you!  Work is busier than busy, working my (generously sized) ass off with eyes on a promotion, getting ready for a Food Show next week, vacation the end of next week, taking care of a recently spayed lab puppy (keep her calm?  areyoufuckingkiddingme???), working on the Chaine des Rotisseurs dinner over the weekend and sleeping...  Well, whenever I get a minute.  Whew, felt good to unload that!
The weather has turned, at long last.  I love spring, though I believe I will better enjoy it next year AFTER the nose surgery when I will have both (working) nostrils.  Am ever so excited to pick my new nose, pun totally intended. 
No new news on the romance front, did finally shake the stage 4 clinger.  Why is it the ones you don't want to hear from can't (won't?) take a polite hint, yet the ones you want to call seem not to know how to use this modern invention (phone)?  Oh well, life's little mysteries.
Excited to be headed to Rodeo in just over a week ~ yee haw!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!  Although I am still single, I am in a really good place.  Let it be noted ~ one year anniversary has come and gone from the the (first) broken nose incident of 2010!  Am thinking of getting it fixed next Jan ~ just have to pick the nose I want to replace this one ~ pun intended! 
Had a great weekend with friend "L" ~ got to show her all around, even spent a little time at the beach.  Made appointment to get Cooper fixed, along with Bella (the one my sis adopted).  Finger's crossed, this will calm the little 'ladies' (I use the term loosely) down...  Neighbors just got two adorable puppies, "L" actually flew with the pups, hence the visit from the great frozen north!
Busy, busy, busy with work ~ all good, am hoping to move up the corporate ladder soon.
No contact from "MS", although we're now friends on fb ~ think maybe it's a friend thing vs. romance.
Have scheduled this year's Rodeo trip, very excited to see my Texas friends!
Hope all is amazing in your world!

And then...?

So...  Apparently 'MS' likes me, keeps asking Tobby to see if I'm hanging out with Awoww at her job.  While I often do, I've not been there when he's inquired.  We've voted (we being Awoww, me and assorted other female friends), and Tobby is officially fired.  Awoww will now go into stealth mode to invite 'MS' to events where I WILL BE in attendance.
On to other subjects, now that that's settled.  Sis loved her b-day dinner and surprises (okay, not successful in any of the surprises.  She is IMPOSSIBLE to surprise), but had a great weekend.  Out with sis and college roomie on Friday, more fun than can be described here.  We made lots of new friends, have been invited back to another party with them on Feb 18 ~ I hope college roomie goes, she needs to get out more and spread her newly single wings.  Makeovers at Heaven Neiman Marcus Saturday am ~ again, too much fun.  Dinner was a huge success (Chicken Picatta, Mushroom Risotto, grilled squash), loads of fun and laughter!
Had a great weekend again this weekend ~ Honorary GodDaughter 'A' was in town, fantastic girl's night on Friday, went to see 'AB' coach on Saturday (they won ~ YAY!), then movies and relaxing.  I'm loving my weekends of late!  Bestie (and new furniture) are due to arrive on Friday, B-day party thrown by Awoww on Saturday ('MS' sure to be in attendance!).  Looking like another great weekend coming up!
Cheers, ya'll!!

Mucho Improved!

So A-Wow set me up with "MS" last Saturday!  I had a blast ~ I was a little stressed on the way, so I called "AB" for a pep-talk.  She began with "You are a strong, beautiful black woman...", because she thinks all pep talks start that way.  I was laughing so hard I forgot to stress further, but still did a shop-by and ordered new living room furniture...  A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, no?  But I did have fun, I think I like-like him, waiting to see what Tobby's input is when he works with him this weekend...  Finger's crossed!
Heading up to Charlotte this weekend for sis's birthday ~ making a yummy dinner at her house for family and friends on Saturday night.  Invited a few extras to surprise her (she is IMPOSSIBLE to surprise).  College roomie is in charge of the cake.  Idk if she's actually going to make it or buy it ~ in her own words "for me to make anything there must be EXACT directions and a picture of what it should look like when I finish."

2011 here I come!

Don't want to jinx myself or anything, but so far, so good in 2011...  Started the New Year with great friends, toasting with champagne at the stroke of midnight while standing in the sand with the waves pounding in the background.  Seriously?  I had the hottest date there, too.  Thanks "A-Wow" (her new nickname) for being my date!
Knee is nearly healed, cold/allergies are fading and all is well with the pups, too.  "A-Wow" now has 2 (yes, count them ~ TWO) prospective dates for me!  I am busy, busy with work this week, heading down to check on Bestie and have belated Chistmas on Saturday, then wide open for the social time.
I am ever so thankful to begin this year with a better relationship with family, close friends near and wide, and a career than I am (usually) very thankful for. 
Best wishes for Health, Happiness, Prosperity and True Love for everyone out there!!
