Working Woman

IMG_1182

Massive readership! I am so sorry I haven’t blogged in a few weeks. That is partially because…I got a JOB. I know, I know. Finally putting my college degree to use (sort of). Basically, I handle all of the lease returns at a company in San Antonio that rents out office equipment like copiers and printers. I’m about to finish my fifth week here, and I’m currently about 34% sure what I’m supposed to be doing.

The company is in the middle of preparing to move, so things are a little hectic. In total, I’ve probably gotten 1 hour of face time with my boss since I started…five weeks ago. My training is a little big lacking. The other thing lacking? My motivation. Said move will put the company that is currently 5 minutes from my apartment over an hour commute away from our apartment. That said, I may be cutting my career here short close to the time of the move. Worst employee ever, I know.

The one thing keeping me here is the fact that hubbs said all of the money I make can go towards a trip to Disney (-land or World we’re not sure yet!). Disney fanatic that I am, I will work here as long as possible…or at least until I save up for our Disney Premier Passports. Hey, I can dream, right?

Anyway, as I’m probably a couple weeks shy of giving my 2-weeks notice, I figured I would recap some of my time and experience here.

IMG_0813

1) My boss (from here on known as ‘T’), is an Austinite who wears rings on his pinky, thumb and pointer finger, has a daughter named after a brand of car, and has a chin strap beard similar to this one that I always one to ask him how hard it is to shave. T’s girlfriend also works here, and this week he let her have my office to “have a quiet working environment.” I had to carry ALL of my office supplies over to his office and work there while she relaxed in my office. I mean, it’s fine. The worst part was probably the fact that no less than SEVEN men walked by T’s office, did a double take when they saw me, and commented something along the lines of, “Wow, T! You sure look different.” And I had to be polite and laugh at each one because they all thought they were SO original to come up with SUCH funny joke.

Me after having to laugh at the same joke for the 13th time.
Me after having to laugh at the same joke for the 13th time.

2) I’d also like to mention one of my coworkers, who I will refer to as ‘K.’ K is one of the most unique, ridiculous people I have ever met. He is 45; when I met him I thought he was 60. He is a self proclaimed “former hippie” that wears several necklaces and bracelets not unlike this along with a 4″ wooden cross on a silver chain. This is all set off with a gray ponytail and a pocket tee holding a carton of cigarettes. K is a TALKER. He LITERALLY (said as Chris Traeger) talked to me about Vikings for 45 minutes last week. Things I know about K that he has told me in the past five weeks:

  • He put down a stray cat named Kitty last week because of cancer
  • He met his wife on the internet, she works at Hallmark, and they just cut her hours
  • He went to high school in New York even though is parents moved to Florida
  • He cusses a lot
  • His neighbor’s name is Donna. She used to work at USAA, hates children, and wants him to repair her fence.
  • Even though his father had cancer and a heart attack, K is convinced doctors killed him with pain medicine
  • He likes Chicken McNuggets, Panda Express Orange Chicken, and Dr. Pepper
  • He watches Duck Dynasty, “some car show,” and Living Dead
  • I know how much is car insurance costs, and that it just raised $4
  • He believes in Zodiac, horoscopes, and that he posses all of the personality traits of his sign (Libra)
  • He didn’t go to college, but he knows he would have succeeded because his wife always tells him he’s smart, and he completed an A/C Repairman year-long online course in only 4 months (also because his Zodiac sign is considered “very intellectual and [he’s] been known to get deep a time or two)
  • He has a “photogenic” mind
  • He has a step brother in prison for murdering someone
  • He tells me lots of stories about himself always including, “So I says…”

I could go on. I’ve even “jokingly” said, “Don’t you ever work? You sure spend a lot of time in here talking…” to which he responds with a laugh and continues his constant stream of information. (Side note: I started writing this blog on Thursday afternoon, and I couldn’t finish it because K came in at 4:40 PM and talked to me until 5:02 PM)

3) I have my own office, which is a huge blessing. It has allowed me to do things like write this blog post at work. Right now. What? I already made it clear above that I’m not campaigning for employee of the year here. Below is a panoramic shot of my office.

Welcome to my lair.
Welcome to my lair.

Another high point of this job, is that I can basically wear whatever to work just short of sweatpants. I say just short because I work a sweatSHIRT to work the other day. With a sports bra. I’m sorry, but NO ONE comes to my office. I do my makeup and try my best to look cute most days, but every once in a while, I just wanna wear a hoodie. So sue me.

I wore the outfit below on my first day of work, and I had to get Louis to bring me flats when we met for lunch. Little did I know, I would be getting a tour of not only our entire office building, but the warehouse as well, from T who I’m pretty sure is an Olympic power walker in his spare time. I thought my toes were going to fall off. Since then it’s been Toms and sandals (okay…and hoodies) for this girl.

IMG_0747

Should I ever complain about working? Definitely not. I have a job making okay money where I can wear jeans and hoodies and blog in my private office. Yet, still I find myself making this face from 8-5.

IMG_0788

A big part of me definitely misses my days of sleeping in, browsing Target for hours, and having homemade baked ziti fresh out of the oven for Louis when he gets home from work. If all goes according to plan, life will be back to the way it was soon enough though!

Until then…

Easter 2013

EasterheaderHappy Easter! Louis and I had a busy, fun Sunday celebrating the day Jesus rose with church, fajitas, and hunting and dying eggs! Here is a photo recap of our day!

We started the day with visiting the movies a new church, Mission Church. I found a flier for the church by our apartment mailboxes, and (since we have been visiting different churches since we moved here) we decided to give it a try this Easter! The awkward part? They meet here:

So…yes. Louis and I spent the first few hours of our Easter at a movie theater that would be screening The Host moments after the last worship song. It was a little bizarre to be sitting there with our feet sticking to the floor while listening to the gospel, but the pastor (an Aggie grad! Whoop!) gave a great message, and we really enjoyed the service overall.

Heading to church!

After church we decided to have a celebratory Easter lunch, and headed to Pappasito’s for some of their delicious fajitas. I acted like a 7-year old and asked Louis to take a picture of me with the Mexican Easter Bunny. Of course, not before I spilled salsa all over my shirt. We got seated in the back banquet room at a table for 6, so it was nice and quiet and we had an awkward amount of room to spread out.

I ran into the Easter Bunny at Pappasito’s…I also spilled salsa on my shirt.

We headed home from lunch for a rousing Easter egg hunt! No Easter is complete without hunting for some candy-filled plastic orbs! The fact that we live in an 800 square foot apartment made the hunt a little difficult, but we managed to find some excellent spots for hiding! Louis hid a dozen eggs for me, while I was quarantined to our bedroom, and, after I found all my eggs, I hid a dozen for him!

All of our hunting worked up our appetite, so Louis requested a sweet dessert. We headed down the road to Marble Slab for a snack! I was craving Sweet Cream with gummy bears (seriously, I acted like a child all day today…), and when I asked for gummy bears, the employee looked at me like I was an idiot. “We don’t have gummy bears at this location.” BLASPHEMY. I settled for Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, and the world did not end.

Marble slab deliciousness.

After our snack excursion, we returned home for another Easter tradition…dying eggs! Usually I have great goals for my eggs every year, and they end up looking super rough. This year though, Louis and I made some pretty beautiful ones if I do say so myself.

While we boiled our eggs and waited for them to be ready to dye though, I got to FaceTime with my family who were celebrating Easter together in Houston! They were so hilarious and fun to catch up with. Their day included church, ribs, and an indoor egg hunt due to rainy weather. The most special part of the day though, was celebrating Henry’s 1st Easter! I loved seeing their updates all day on Instagram, but it was so much better being able to chat with them and see them for myself! My mom even gave me a tour of the house to show me her Easter decor and delicious homemade desserts!

It was weird celebrating Easter away from our families this year, but the drive to and from Houston is a pain when we both have work Friday and Monday. I know we’ll get to make some trips home in April and May, so that made it worth staying here and doing laundry and cleaning and doing dishes getting rested up for another work week bearable.

I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing Easter!

Our Disney Adventures Through the Years

Anyone who knows me (and probably some who don’t) knows of my love for Disney. Specifically…Walt Disney World. I never get tired of reading about it, looking at pictures of it, and most importantly visiting it. Anyone who knows my sweet husband would probably assume he’s not a Disney fanatic like myself. How wrong they would be.

When Louis and I were going into our sophomore year at Texas A&M, we came up with the crazy idea of taking a trip to Walt Disney World together. Going in, I’m sure Louis was annoyed to be spending thousands of dollars to be going to (at the time) what he thought of as a children’s theme park. Fast forward 4 years and 3 trips later, he understands the magic. 🙂

Moments into our first trip Louis was as hooked as I had been since my first trip as a 4-year old. Since that trip, Louis surprised me with a trip in 2010 for the most romantic proposal ever imagined, and we returned for our honeymoon in 2012. It’s only been 11 months since we were there, but I’m having serious withdrawals. Watching Disney classics, listening to Disney music, and planning dream trips (“Babe…I got it down to $3000 not including food and souvenirs!”), just don’t fill the void like a trip does. Tonight, I sat down and looked through our 797 (literally) Disney trip pictures. I decided to do a little compilation of some similar pictures from each of our 3 trips. Enjoy!

It’s so fun looking back through these and reminiscing on all of our memories. We are pretty happy people, but we are never happier than when we’re at Walt Disney World! Hope you enjoyed my trip down memory lane, and I hope I have more recent Disney pictures to post soon!

Until then,

I hope all your wishes come true!

Rough, Tough, Real Stuff, Texas A&M

DISCLAIMER: If you aren’t an Aggie or Aggie Fan, this post probably won’t interest you. However, if you are, enjoy.

My handsome hubbs planned some last minute business meetings in College Station last Saturday, so we made a spontaneous day trip there. While he was off being all official, I drove to campus to admire the newly remodeled MSC. It was Aggieland Saturday, so I joined the throngs of anxious parents and high schoolers trying to pretend they were already in college and explored my beloved university and what had changed since I left.

The outside views of the new MSC are just as beautiful as the inside.

The MSC basement now boasts: A Mac store, air hockey, foosball tables, ping pong tables, a Panda Express, a FROYO station, and more! When I was there, we had a ghetto bowling alley, DDR, and a Chicfila. Times have changed.
The MSC basement now boasts: A Mac store, air hockey, foosball tables, pool tables, a Panda Express, a FROYO station, and more! When I was there, we had a ghetto bowling alley, DDR, and a greasy Chicfila. Times have changed. The top right picture shows a few of several TV stations. The clear fixture above each couch is what projects the sound from the TV, so it can only be heard by those beneath it. That way it doesn’t disturb others who are studying or passing by. Ridiculous!
I explored the bookstore, which is now TWO stories!?! It had the cutest baby gear that I totally wanted to buy for Henry, but his parents are Cougars...don't want to pressure him too early!

That painting on the left hung in a hall I always walked through as a freshman. It was refreshing to see it still hanging as I wandered around. The middle shot was taken from the bridge between the MSC and Rudder Tower. That bridge is where I went to open every acceptance letter from organizations I applied for. I had many heart-racing moments in that hall, tearing open envelopes that held my plans for the next year. That final shot is pretty self explanatory.

Kyle Field & Rudder Tower haven't changed at all, but I still loved seeing them. I made some of my best memories at organization meetings for MSC FISH and Abbott in Rudder Tower. Kyle Field, I actually don't have many fond memories in. Funny memories there include when Louis got thrown up on before we left early (2%ers) and a bird pooped on him.

I was psyched to visit the Puppy Store at Post Oak Mall (which also had a semi-facelift), but I was CRUSHED to see it had closed! I spent countless hours there bonding with puppies I knew I wouldn't buy.

It was so good to visit campus. It has changed SO much just since I graduated, and that was only 2 years ago! I met some current MSC FISH members, and they are the Class of 2016. Wow. That made me feel OLD. I can’t lie, I totally teared up walking through the MSC. Yes, as if I wasn’t awkward enough walking around campus alone, I was crying too. It just meant so much to be to be back on campus where I made so many amazing memories. It made me miss the days where I could see 20 familiar faces just walking between classes. Or randomly walking across the street to hang out and watch Gossip Girl with my friends. My time at A&M flew by, and returning to campus made me realize how much I valued every moment I spent there. I am so proud to be an Aggie.

Weekend Update

Nope. Not the funny SNL version…this is just my own Weekend Update. This weekend my dad had to go out of town for work, so Louis and I headed home to keep my mom company. Their mansion can get spooky at night, and she was a little scared to be home alone. I mean, she’s no Kevin McAllister.

Image

I picked Louis up from work on Friday, and we began the long treck back to Houston. We arrived to a delicious snack attack basket and some yummy Valentine’s Mickey Mouse cookies. YUM. (Side note: upon seeing the picture below, my mom said, “If I had known you were taking a picture I would have fluffed the pillows!” Ya mom…the room was a wreck in the picture.)

Image

We laughed and talked and laughed and snacked and laughed and passed out around 2:00 AM. We needed to get SOME rest because the morning was bringing some very special visitors….

Image

HENRY!!!!! (and his parents!) My mom cooked a billion cinnamon rolls and we sat around and laughed and ate and laughed and talked and laughed. Here is some precious proof:

I mean…I can’t even. He’s too cute. I loved seeing Amy and Travis too! They have so many exciting things going on, so it’s always fun to catch up.

After lots of laughter they headed out, and my mom and I got ready. I remained obsessed with Maybelline’s Falsies mascara. I mean, seriously.

Maybellinefalsies
Maybe she’s born with it…NOPE. I wasn’t.

First we enjoyed Chipotle at Market Street. We sat outside in the breeze and reminisced about the time I slipped and ate it at the Chipotle in downtown Houston a year ago. Man, time flies. I loved laughing with her!

Beautiful company!
Beautiful company!

After we gorged on their yummy chips and guacamole, we shopped around at Francesca’s (precious accessories and clothes) and Zulee’s  (overpriced crap like ceramics you can personalize and $75 candles) we wound up at my fave…MARSHALL’S HOMEGOODS. I could spend hours in there. We did. I ended up with the cutest blazer and cardigan…both on clearance! I’ll post pictures of them at some point! We finally headed home to throw on our sweats, greet my dad coming home from LA (as in Louisiana…hah), and watch Paul Blart: Mall Cop with some homemade popcorn…which included more laughter and eating and laughter.

Today, we woke up, got out of bed, dragged a comb across our head, and headed to Shipley’s…of course. I wanted to see Henry and his parents again! So…we laughed and ate donuts and laughed and watched Henry be super cute. It will probably have been my last time at Amy and Travis’s house before they move to their beautiful new place! So excited for them.

Time flew and we headed home to pack….aaaaand so my mom could cut my pants. Louis bought me some VS Pink (not actually pink…they’re grey. That’s ALWAYS confusing.) sweatpants in October for my gallbladder surgery (because I was being a baby), and they were about 3 feet too long. When I asked about the weird length, they salesgirl said, “Oh yeah. You’re supposed to cut them yourself to create your own custom length!” I translated that to, “Even though we’re charging you $50 for sweatpants, we’re too cheap to add a finished hem!” Thankfully, my mom trimmed them up, Louis and I…okay, Louis loaded up the car, and we headed on our way! 

Our drive home included seeing the following (full screen it for a better view):

Not a clue. Seriously. Back in San Antonio we grabbed Chipotle (twice in two days? I know.) and ate it while watching 30 Rock because it’s hilarious (what Superbowl?). It was a great weekend, and I loved seeing my family!
