lately... this past week...

man, it feels like the weekends go by so quickly.... i guess they do. valentines came and went, but not without us celebrating. we waited till the day after (wednesday) and hit the town. we went to deep sushi for dinner, and let me tell you, it was devine! we even shared dessert! (rare) after eating to our heart's content, we headed over to the double wide for some dranks. we even tried the YOOHOO YEEHAW, which is basically a poor man's white russian... or a white trash white russian. ha! after we had a few drinks, we headed to the bowling alley... i haven't bowled since dave and i started dating... so like, 4 years. it was fun. i ordered some onion ring things and had to leave them at the table behind us. well, wouldn't you know, the beotch in the lane next to us decides she is too lazy to find a damn ashtray and dumps her ashes in my FOOD??!! luckily, i was basically done with the, but now, i kind of regret not saying anything. it didn't ruin our night though. we had a blast together... i didn't really take any photos because we were having so much fun.. here are a two.. 

dave and i started the weekend off right... with sushi.. we are kinda craving it a lot lately. i guess it's our new thing. i need to learn how to make some damn sticky rice. HALP! when i got home, dave, me and his cousin derek went to kaze sushi and hibachi. MOUTHGASM. <3 i had my usual avocado roll with cream cheese. dave had an alaskan roll and we shared the veggie hibachi plate. dave also go this weird girly drink that he didn't care for because it tasted like straight up peach schnapps. haha! while we were waiting for our food, i got a text from my buds that they were going to do karaoke. well, shoot! i decided to make it a japanese night. dave didn't want to do karaoke, so i went myself, which was great, because he would have been the only guy with us. we went to a place called scoreboard. mandy sang bonnie raiit's, 'i can't make you love me' and she sounded great! then, sam and i sang 'screaming infidelities' by dashboard confessional. i can tell you, that wasn't a song that many in that bar knew... oh, and that was the great part, that bar was CHEAP!  i got a good buzz off of the $20 i took in and was surprised! (i didn't drive) =) kellye and sam sang 'teenage dream' by katy perry and mandy also sang a gavin degraw song (i forgot which one) and then i got the courage to sing 'the way i am' by eminem. oh. my. lord. face palm! although, listening back to the video they took of me, i don't sound that awful.. look out SHADY! not too long after that, we headed back home. i slept so long on saturday.. wasted half of my day. i edited some photos and watched some law and order. real fun stuff right there. sunday morning i had another scrimmage. we played the derby girls from stephenville, texas. it was so much fun! after, we all went to the meridian room for brunch. well, it was more like lunch. when we got home, i took a long nap. it was nice. i got up and cleaned the house after and even did all of dave's laundry... i think he secretly wants me to do it, even though he tells me he doesn't. silly guy. we had veggie chicken sandwiches and waffle fries for dinner and settled into some mythbusters before bed. this weekend is my very first bout (home season with my team) ever. i am stoked and super nervous. we play the bombshell brigade. it's going to be pretty awesome. khaos gave us all little grenade pendants. now i know why she wouldn't tell me where she got hers! i love it.

weekend recap

i need to get back into the habit of blogging a few times a week...

this weekend was full of things to do. dave let me take the best nap ever on friday night. yes, i took a 2 hour nap on friday night. he's my favorite. needless to say, we didn't do much on friday besides finishing up my team's bout program page. dave was such a big help. we stayed up pretty late and i regretted it because i had to be at the galleria the next morning to do a photo shoot.

the photo shoot went smoothly. the kiddos were so cute! after the shoot, dave and i had lunch at luciano's. i had a giant piece of pepperoni and a salad. he had a spinach stromboli. we were stuffed. we shopped around a bit, but all i bought were some socks for derby and some fishnets for my team photo. when we got home, we took a nap in the living room. i was wiped out. (what an old lady i am becoming) i woke up to a text from samantha asking what i was up to that evening, and of course, i had nothing planned... so we made plans to hang out for a bit. i watched law and order svu until she came over and we ran to the store to get booze and candy. LOL. she had never seen the wild and wonderful whites of west virginia, so, we watched that. she of course, thought it was hilarious. if you haven't watched it, i suggest popping over to netflix and checking it out. it's a documentary about the 'famous' white family that lives in west virginia. they are all drug addicts and outlaws. the documentary crew followed them for an entire year. honestly, parts of it will make you laugh your ass off, and others will make you mad. here is a clip of what to expect. this is probably my favorite scene from the entire documentary... 

and then there is jesco white, and his opinion on sloppy eggs...

it got late, so sam headed home. again, i had to be up early in the morning. this time, a lot earlier. we were having our team photo taken the next day and the location was an hour away. i woke up at 6:30 the next morning and started curling my hair. i did my make up and checked the weather. it was 34 degrees outside... YIKES. my outfit consisted of hot shorts, compression tights, fishnets, a wife beater and an old army shirt. i got to the location and stayed in my car until everyone else arrived. annie gave me my team dog tags. i was so excited to get them! once everyone arrived, we got in position and put on our skates. we had to sit still in the same spot for quite a few minutes so that the gracious photographer could capture different exposures. the sun made this difficult as it kept coming out and then hiding behind clouds. we were finally able to move, and i felt so stiff. he let us take a short break and then we all re positioned ourselves into the next pose. this one didn't take as long. we were all yelling out that we were going to treat ourselves to cheese fries after the shoot. we ended up at cafe brazil after the photo and i had the chicken nachos. they are so good there! i took another nap once i got home to get ready for practice that night. and once again, i was watching law and order svu. (my guilty pleasure). we had an amazing practice and i just feel so much love for my team. i can't wait for the season opener. it's going to be amazing. leaving practice, it started to snow. it was the crappy texas kind, so it didn't stick and i would really just call it freezing rain rather than snow... i went to bed early sunday night and had a nice deep sleep. it was a great weekend. hopefully, in the coming weekends, i can focus on wedding planning and such. i really need to start getting stuff ready for the big day, or it may not go as smoothly as i want it.

i didn't know mel from flight of the conchords was on svu! i love their crazy guest stars. =D

this is sort of what i was wearing in my team photo... it 34 degree temp...gah!

the sky was pretty the day of our shoot...

i am official..i have been forever, but it just seems like its more official now. thanks ladies!

after our photo shoot, we were all warming up at cafe brazil. aren't we cute?
thanks to kewel whip for the photo.

dave and i HAVE to take a photo in front of the texas star with our wedding clothes on... since that's where he proposed!! <3

not that anyone really reads this...

but, life has really gotten busy. like, i mean, really busy. with work, and derby, i feel like i am always on the go, or i always have something planned. oh yes, and there is that small matter of planning a wedding on top of all of that. good news on the wedding front is that i got my dress. i am super excited to wear it. now i just need to find the right shoes. decisions, decisions...

i cannot wait for summer... just warmer weather in general. texas keeps teasing us with sunny warm days, only to be followed by a bitter, cold rainy day the next. i can't wait to start working on our yard and having a few bbqs with family and friends.

it seems like the year is flying by already... i can't believe it's february.. here are some photos from the last few weeks...

been listening to a lot of little joy. you should check them out. the drummer from the strokes is one of the members. it's mellow and nice to listen to while you are driving with the windows down.

i had a delicious lunch at samar to help say farwell to a co-worker.

this little lady is growing so fast. she's super trendy too!
