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.
