What are you doing this week?

Presently Speaking

Feeling: Stupid. I found out this week that I trust people entirely too much in my job. I need to be more questioning and I thought I already was cynical enough. Well lesson learned. I guess I just need to keep that cynicism focused in on work and not let it creep into my personal life. 

Reading: The Divorce Papers for The Duchess’ Book Club! Come join us!

Listening to: ‘Jungle’ by Jamie N Commons. It’s on repeat in my car with the windows rolled down… such perfection

Thankful for: Having Winston and Poppy back in Dallas with me! My apartment has been so quiet without those two fury furies running around!

Thinking about: How cluttered my desk is, I see all these pictures of people with pristine desks and mine looks like a hurricane of paper came by. People say a clear desk means a clear mind well I’m going to call BS on that. A cluttered desk means I’m actually doing something. 

Eating:  My Fit Foods! My favorite is the Good Morning Sunshine! YUMMY

Watching: Game of Thrones! I needed to finish the third season before the fourth season starts! Anyone else want to see more of the Stark men without their shirts? Yep me too 

Loving: DogTv! I signed up for this awesome program and now when I leave for school Winston gets to watch tv. I come home to him sitting in front of the tv and laying on the couch with his eyes glued to the tv!

Looking forward to: Seeing the Dallas Opera with my mom tonight! So excited! 

What’s up with you?


The Mayan Ruins

The past couple of days have been insane. My child advocacy case decided to blow up (kids are perfectly fine) but I’m starting to realize that I need to be way less trusting and question everything. Seriously, this is the first time I’ve gotten to sit down and even look at this lovely blog! I miss you guys! Any hoo my case should be calming down and I can get back to blogging!
When I was in Mexico a couple weeks ago we took a day off from the beach, rented a jeep, and went exploring. Of course the people we were with were more interested in each bar along the road round the island but I, being the history buff I’m proud to be, I was excited about getting to the ruins of San Gervasio
Then to my surprise (and extreme annoyance) after visiting multiple different bars no one wanted to go into the ruins with me. Seriously, no. one. went. with. me. I was dead set on seeing some damn history on this trip so I trekked through the site by myself and loved every minute! 
There wasn’t much left of the ruins but I soaked in as much as I could! 

Would have you gone with me to see the ruins?

Coffee, Tea, or Brownie? CLOSED

Are you a coffee or a tea drinker? Or perhaps a hot water with lemon in the morning? Or a sweet treat late at night? Any of them taste good if they are drunk/eaten out of one of these fantastically fun mugs from Ashley Brooke Designs

There are so many ridiculously fun sayings but these three are my favorite! I mean how can you not be awesome when drinking from one of these? Or heck corralling your pens on your desk in one or making a mug brownie in one? I mean yes please
