Day 79 – February 26, 2011

Today, I went to the gym, went shopping for a bit, had a long conversation with my dad (28 minutes!!!) and then chilled at home. I got ready to go out with the girls… EE’s friend E and her friends were joining us.

TS2, CR, EE, and me at the second local watering hole ๐Ÿ™‚

Pomegranate Lemon Drop shots (made by my fave bartender)

After my fave bar, we went to a club down the street and then EE took the girls to her fave club and the 3 of us (TS2, CR & me) went bar hopping scoring a couple of free drinks ๐Ÿ™‚ We then went back to my fave bar to wrap up the night.

Wrapping up the night!

We ran into WT outside the bar (turns out he’d been there too!) and then we got some Chi’lantro BBQ (you’ll have to try that when you get back!!) and WT was kind enough to give us a ride home ๐Ÿ˜€ It was a long night and boy were my feet glad when I got home!


Day 73 – February 20, 2011

Today, I woke up, talked to you for a bit, then went back to sleep.. I got a pedicure as payment for work yesterday ๐Ÿ˜€ Now I can wear open toe shoes now that it’s warmed up ๐Ÿ˜€

We decided against going to get tamales and CO, MF, and I went downtown to Discovery Green (a park downtown)

After we saw everything, we went for lunch at McD’s then we went back to their place and I packed up and left.

Sun rays ๐Ÿ˜€

On the way home, I got to see the sunset! Moon rise on the way, sunset on the way back.. lucky me!

Pink sun!

I got home and started unpacking, finished cleaning the kitchen, and I organized some receipts, bills, and finally watched “Easy A”… surprisingly, I also wasn’t too impressed by it. It was cute though.

Tomorrow, some people are off.. it’s also a holiday in Ontario (Family Day). I wish I were off… not ready for the weekend to be over already ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


Day 70 – February 17, 2011

Today started with a cute little kitty wanting me to pet him!

This evening, EE and I decided to meet up for drinks with JC (the race team captain in Oct — also CR’s coworker)

Me, EE & JC

Getting friendly

After a drink, we headed to a new spot… the Broken Spoke.. we wanted to show TS’s friends from Ohio a country bar!

There's an odd bus outside of the Broken Spoke

There's another thing in Austin we've tried..

TS & AL - AL dressed the part!

Friendly again!

We all didn’t dance, AL danced with one of TS’s friends and another one of her friends danced with some chick there. After a while and much people watching, the novelty wore and we decided to head towards home — so we hit West 6th — J. Black’s.

TS was having phone issues from the start -- she couldn't find it {Here's EE helping her look for it}. Then she dropped it in the toilet!

2/3 of TS's Ohio friends on their phones..

As EE has an appointment with the trainer tomorrow, we left before midnight!! I know! Hard to believe.. it was fun though ๐Ÿ˜€


Day 44 – January 22, 2011

This morning, I went to Stephanie’s class, which was really good.. time flew by! I played some more Kirby and then ran errands in the afternoon. I got home, made dinner and then got ready to go out. EE picked me and CR up and we went to Sherlock’s.


Then we went downtown to Lanai and my fave bartender was bartending yay!

There's the bracelet ๐Ÿ˜€ I'm fist pumping or dancing or... ??

EE and I met up with WT at our neighbourhood bar, then called it a night..ย It was a lot of fun but I wish you had been there ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


Day 33 – January 11, 2011

Today was a crazy day — I had to do stuff for work, go to the office, pack, and send you a package. I put all the packaged baked goods in a Lululemon bag and was ready to go to the post office and someone got in the way…

I keep telling you he misses his daddy... he wanted to be shipped along with the baked goods!

While I was working, the VP’s admin (MB) asked me to come to the hotel early.. she wanted me to accompany her to a couple of places. My boss got in just in time and he joined us. Our first stop was Stubb’s; MB wanted to select the menu and check out the space.

After that, we went to Kenishi to select that menu as well. After we dropped MB off at the hotel, my boss and I went to the boxing gym. He wanted to talk to the owner andย finalizeย details. We also went for dinner at the restaurant across the street from the hotel.

Fish tacos w/ranchero beans and rice

After dinner, we got down to work… planned all the scenes that needed to be shot and thought of some ideas for the video.

This was the workstation in my room

We laid out the equipment on my bed & were testing out the lights

Once we were satisfied with everything, we packed up and called it a night.
