I'm so full

Today I had my Scentsy party. Thank you for everyone who came. It's funny, I spent almost 2 days cleaning my house and now it's dirty again. I made cheese tortillas and chips and queso for snacks. Emily made us some friend oreos while she was here. Kristin also brought me a peanut butter pie that she made. It is so yummy. I didn't want to share it with anyone, but now I wish I had. Now I have to eat it all by myself. I am so tired and want to go to bed, but I also want to see my man. Hopefully he will call soon. But I will definitely be in bed early tonight.

Here is a picture of the sky tonight. I was outside putting up my Christmas lights and had to capture it. Enjoy!

O Cristmas Tree

Luckily I was able to get my car fixed this weekend. It was pretty expensive to replace the starter. I hate having car trouble.

Mom bought me a Christmas tree. It's so pretty!!! I just put it up tonight. After work I went and bout ornaments for it. I'm so proud of it!!!

When I was at Target, I saw these adorable plates. They were super cheap, so I couldn't pass them up. I figured they would make cute serving plates. And they sparkle!!

Giving thanks for my broken car

Well just as I had suspected, my car decided to break today. It won't start, so now I am carless for the weekend. I managed to get it to start today, but I can't rely on it this weekend. I hate when things go wrong with my car. And who knows how much it will cost to fix it.

Today I went over to Uncle Larry's for Thanksgiving. The food wasn't as yummy as it usually is. But I did enjoy my Mom's dressing. Around 3:30 I went over to Les' for his family Thanksgiving. His brother-in-law made black eyed peas with ham and jalapenos. They were delicious. I'm going to start making mine like that now. I was too full from eating earlier, so I didn't eat anything else. After hanging out over there for a while, we went back to his place to take a nap. For some reason I couldn't sleep, so I was forced to watch the football game while he slept. After the game I came home.

I've been so sensitive lately and I don't know why. I get my feelings hurt constantly and cry and the smallest thing. I've also been slightly depressed. I just want to be happy again.

I think I'm going to get a white Christmas tree. I really want one, and I think it will fit perfectly in my living room. Now I just have to save up the money to get it. Speaking of money, I hope I make a lot this weekend because I need it.

Just like old times...

Today I went to lunch with Liz and Lizeth. Lizeth is home from Austin, so it was nice to see her. We had lunch at Chili's and then me and Liz went on a shopping spree. We first went to NorthPark. I bought a couple Christmas presents, which was nice. Then we headed over to Mockingbird Station. Then we rushed over to Target before it closed, only to find out they were open till 11pm! I ended up spending more money than I wanted, but I bought the cutest stuff and I haven't been shopping in a long time. I bought this cute Christmas wreath. Liz had wanted a pink one until I showed her this. The only problem was I got the last one and none of the other Targets we went to had any. Sorry Liz. It looks so pretty hanging on my door. I just hope nobody steals it.

While at the second Target I found a tree that matches my wreath. It was only $20, so I got it.

Before I bought the tree above, I had bought this. It's real pretty, but I don't know if I should keep it. I got it for my bedroom. And it really looks good with the lights off. But I will probably end up taking it back.

I know I'm not supposed to buy myself anything, but I thought this picture frame was the neatest. So I had to buy it.

After going from Target to Target, we went to Wal-Mart to find Liz a white tree. They had a 6ft pre-lite white tree for $30. Now that's a good deal. I might consider getting myself one. I bought some groceries while we were there and then came home. I was exhausted, but I still had to make that chocolate eclair cake for tomorrow.

I was invited to Les' family get together tomorrow, which I'm excited about. I'm mostly excited about getting invited. It feels nice. But I don't think Mom likes the idea of me splitting my time. I just wish everybody liked each other and there wasn't any tension or hurt feelings. But I don't think it will ever be like that. Which sucks, because I'm the one stuck in the middle. But I'm not going to think about that. I want tomorrow to go as smoothly as possible. I can't wait to eat all the food!!!

Tonight I made a cake for Lucas. He is one of my managers and tomorrow is his last day. He said he loves strawberries, so I made a strawberry cake with cream cheese icing. I also decided to put chocolate covered strawberries on top. I had never used bakers chocolate before and it was very difficult. But they didn't turn out too bad for my first time.

I did everything except the writing. That was Sarah's job. Anyways, I think it turned out pretty well. I hope he likes it.

I got a new fish. This one looks albino. Anyways, I decided to name it Sebastian. The other fish is named Spaz.

The End

Roach pancakes

So tonight me, Emily, Sarah, and Carl went to IHOP. After us girls ate, the table behind us started freaking out about something. It was a ROACH! Some lady came over a tried to smush it with a napkin. Later on it emerged from the darkness again. This time the "manager" came over and asked if we had called her over. Emily told her no, but the roach was back. And nobody did anything!!!!!!!! They acted like it was no big deal. They didn't even apologize. So for that reason I am going to call corporate. They should have handled the situation better. No, I don't want free pancakes, I want JUSTICE!!!!

Shrimp on the Barbie

Tuesday Emily and Sarah came over after work and we made cupcakes for Rebecca's birthday. They were strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese icing. We did the decorating ourselves, can't you tell?!

Then after all that fun I met Chelsey at the Outback. It was the first time I had actually hung out with her in a long time. We sat in Les' section and he gave us excellent service. That night I really didn't feel like being alone. I had hoped that I would get to hang out with Les, but he was tired. So I went over to Mom's and watched TV until around 5 in the morning. I actually got caught up on all my shows. AND I watched a little Shot of Love with Tila Tequila. What an interesting show!

Wednesday I slept most of the day and did a little cleaning. Mom came over and brought me chicken fried steak from KFC. Later on me, Les, and Liz went to the Billiard Bar. I had an ok time. It was nice to see the guys, especially since their girls weren't there. We left kind of early and went back to Liz's where we made fun of her neighbor.

Thursday I had to work :( After work Les came over and spent the night. We didn't really get to hang out because he feel asleep on the couch shortly after we got home. I had trouble sleeping that night because I took my allergy medicine and it makes me restless. So today I was sick and tired all in one.

Today everyone was in a bad mood at work. Sarah quit and Michelle was fighting with everyone. I just tried to stay out of everyone's way. It wasn't very busy, and I thought I was only going to make $40. But I had a party of almost 20 as my last table, so that gave me an extra boost. I ended up making $74.

I know tomorrow I'm going to be tired, but I have to fight through. I need to make good money this weekend. Christmas is approaching and I haven't bought any presents.

It's been a while

I haven't posted anything in a while, and it's because I haven't really been in the mood. I'm still having no luck on the job search. And that just makes me hate my current job even more.

For Halloween I went and got my hair done. I decided to go dark again. It's a real pretty brown/red color. I also cut my bangs, but I don't like them. I've decided that I'm going to let them grow out again. After that I went out to dinner with Mom at the Olive Garden. After dinner we stopped by Kristin's parents' house to see Elora in her costume. Then I went back home and opened my presents from Mom. I got a shirt from Old Navy, the jacket I'd been wanting and couldn't find, and my black sweater boots. Those boots are my new favorite thing! Then I headed over to Liz's. I hung out there for a little while. Her apartment is so cute now. I will post pics later. After an hour I went to Les' and spent the night with him.

The next day I slept until about 3 in the afternoon. Les didn't have to work so we went back to my apartment and got ready. Then Me, Les, Rebecca and Sarah went to Matts. I realize now that that place is a lot more fun when everybody is drinking. After dinner I went back home and slept.

Rebecca came into town last weekend and she stayed with me Sunday night. It had been a long time since I've seen her, so it was nice to get to hang out with her. Too bad I was really tired.

This past Sunday was me and Les' 1 year anniversary. We went to eat at the Outback and then went to the movies to see 30 Days of Night. I him a chocolate eclair cake and bought him a chair, since his broke. It turned out to be a good day.

There are so many things that I want to do, but I have no money to do them. I want to buy these white frames from Ikea and print out pictures. I want to hang them in my bedroom. I also want to paint stars on my wall in my bedroom. I think that would look neat. Or maybe birds. I also want to get creative and make things. I want to buy some shadow boxes and decorate them. Also, it's been a while since I've worked on my scrapbooks. I just want to use my imagination a little. Too bad I need money to do it.
