200 mph

i’ve been so busy lately!!!!!!!!!!

but here are little bits of what i’ve been up to…

*i’ve been obsessed with gotye’s song “somebody that i used to know” featuring kimbra. and i’ve been into the black keys lately. i want to attend this year’s edgefest to see them live. anyone want to go with me?

*i’ve been apartment hunting and i found an apartment that i want. the awesome thing is that my best friend and his wife are apartment hunting as well, and the apartments we looked at has 2 vacant apartments that are in the same building, one on top of the other! it would be awesome to be neighbors AGAIN!

*one of my friends is getting married this summer and i ordered my bridesmaid dress today. it feels so official now! i am so excited. this is going to be a fabulous wedding. there will be no pictures posted as the day draws near. they will be posted AFTER the wedding. i can’t wait!

*one of my high school buddies from saipan came in to town this past weekend and it was great! it was the second time i have seen him since 2000 so hanging out with him helped my homesickness. i drove him all around dallas. we went to the bar i frequent on friday nights, we went bowling, we went driving around the rich people homes, we went to eat hawaiian food, and we went to the dallas galleria mall. i had a small dinner arranged for him because his birthday was on sunday and i had to drive to austin (where he currently lives) for work, so i couldn’t spend his birthday with him. but thank you, joe, for coming to dallas. it’s my turn to visit you in austin! fun stuff!

*i shoot in 3 pool leagues this session, 2 on monday nights and 1 on tuesday nights. that means mondays and tuesdays will be my long days because i’d work in the morning and shoot pool at night.

*over the holiday season i was working at northpark center. now i will be working at dallas galleria. a few great things about dallas galleria is that: there is a taco bell and jamba juice in there, the h&m (that will open in late march) is across our papyrus store, and the nestle tollhouse shop is 2 doors down! how is it that 2 of the 3 things i mentioned is food related? so typical.

*new bella pilar cards came into the store. and they are super cute. i will be posting an image blog on the bella cards because i know there are crazy bella pilar fans out there.

*my girl scout cookies have come in weeks ago and i’ve been so busy that i haven’t been able to pick them up yet. i feel terrible because i’m holding the cookies back from all my friends who want them and i don’t want a little girl wondering if a stack of cookies are going to sit in her house forever. i really need to buy my cookies and deliver them to my friends/coworkers.

*i am co-hosting a baby shower for my dear friend, alexis. she is having a baby girl and we are planning a baby shower in may. that will keep me busy on top of my friend’s wedding in june. it’s going to be a FUN-FILLED SPRING! i’m picturing this baby shower to be elegant and feminine and pretty. dusty pink and champagne is what i’m envisioning. and then when i get that visual, i think of a baby shower that victoria beckham would have for her daughter, harper. more details later.

*my pinterest is sierra lei. you can see some baby shower ideas on one of my boards…as well as my pinterest basically being a virtual wish list. i swear, that site is so addictive!

*i am composing a blog on my obsession with tattoos. just a little bit about it, it will be titled “artistic encounter” which is the name of the tattoo shop that inspired me to write the blog. it will feature the likes of stephanie gunter aka “stephanie vixen” (wife of the owner/pinup model), rodney carrera (the really cool tattoo artist i met that worked on my coworker’s tattoo), and michelle katiussa (the photographer that shoots stephanie…who does amazing work on beautiful tattooed girls). it will take me a while to complete the blog, as it takes me forever to compose a blog focused on one subject that i end up being pleased with. so stay tuned.

*i want to make oreo cupcakes. enough said.

*i decided not to blog about my dating life. it’s just always a disaster and although it would make for entertaining reading material, it would just end up reading like this: “i dated someone and then i got too busy to further it….then i dated someone and got too busy to further it….” and that’s not entertaining. so what have i decided to do? keep mum on my dating life, period. done.

that seems to be it for now. where have the past 2 months gone!? time flies when you’re having fun! it has definitely been such a great year so far!!! i’m speechless, it has been that awesome.

    • he can definitely be my taste tester. in fact, i’ll take a few taste testers. i noticed that i have had leftover cupcakes every time i bake and i don’t like to waste.

    • never heard of annah mac and you had me at “stiletto”!!! so i just heard it on youtube and i love it! it’s catchy and cool! and who IS annah mac? of course if anyone suggests a song to me, i’ll listen to it right away!! good one and THANK YOU for the new discovery! i wonder what else you can recommend, that was an awesome first suggestion!

      • We listened to Goyte’s song repeatedly for February. Still love it.
        Annah Mac is from Hamilton, New Zealand and this is a fairly new song. She’s just starting out on an international scale but has been singing for a while. I have just found her with this song.
        For my next choice, “Brother” by Smashproof featuring Gin Wigmore, again, New Zealand singer/song writers. I especially like the chorus that Gin sings.

      • that was a cool song! thanks again! and once again, i’ve never heard of smashproof! where are you from, exactly? i bet if i suggest a song to you, you’ll say you’ve heard it. i think. haha.

      • well, then, my first song is “jesus christ” by brand new! oh, good, new zealand-i’m gonna automatically assume that what’s popular there is going to be different than what’s popular here, and the same will be for the smaller bands!! =)

      • I think we will both be getting new music here, haven’t heard of Brand New. Just listened to the song. Nice!
        “Something in the Water” by Brooke Frazer, this came out last year

      • i like it! and it sounds like another song that i can’t QUITE pinpoint, which is FRUSTRATING me! how about “the way i am” by ingrid michaelson?

      • We chose not to have a tv for a few years and found it blissful and the evenings longer and after a while you just do other things. TV. A complete waste of time? Probably.

      • oh, trust me, if i had cable, i’d be watch THE FOOD NETWORK every day..because that’s what i always do when i watch tv if cable is around!
