Lately at work we have been having some issues with a little mouse being in our store, and even on the sales floor scaring customers! But this week, it went to the level of jungle when I found a SQUISHED baby lizard in the stock room!!!
It was squashed so paper thin and all nasty! I have no idea how it got in our store and all the way to the stockroom, let alone flattened! Grosses me out big time!
This weekend is my weekend off and it is my brother's birthday, so it's time to celebrate!Have a great weekend and Happy Friday!
For the longest time I have been trying to figure out the identity of this old man at the gym. Almost every time I walk in to the gym he is walking on the treadmill and I always think "man! he looks familiar!" then one day it hit me like a ton of bricks....
FATHER O'Neil From WEDDING CRASHERS was treading it up right before my eyes!!!!
I swear I was so convinced that it was him that I went home and did some research on the actor (Henry Gibson) and figured he must randomly live in my town or something, but alas, I found out that he died in 2009.
Oh well, I guess there is just a Father O'Neil stunt double who goes to my gym! haha
There is a woman in the US with two uteruses (spelling?) and she is pregnant in BOTH of them! Could you even imagine?? I can hardly fathom being pregnant in one, but having two, and having them be due a week apart! No thanks!
This weekend was a happy/sad one! It was one of my favorite coworkers and good friend Amber's last weekend at work! She is switching colleges and sadly is leaving us! But we are so happy for her! Plus it was a great excuse to celebrate all weekend long!
Amber and I!
Little Mariela found herself a small car! haha
After fueling up on some food we headed to downtown Petaluma!
For some stupid reason my camera was on random settings! But oh well! Me, Ashton, and Caylah!
Of course there was a super creeper following Jorgi around ALL NIGHT! EW!
Mariela and I!
Group Picture :)
We even found time to catch some waves...
End of a fun night!
On Saturday we were all DEAD at work. Our whole staff was out of it and so sleepy after being out until 2 the night before. So I apologize if you received poor service because we were all tired hahaha Sunday was Amber's last day at work :( The two of us have been joking about doing the Hurricane Simulator for along time, and because it was her last day we knew we had to do it! So on our lunch we headed straight for the crazy contraption!
Me, Caylah, and Amber!
It was so windy!!
our hair became a huge knot!
Then after a long day of customers and eating the TON of junk food that we all brought in, it was time for Amber to clock out for the last time! Amber was happy, but Hazel... not so much!
After work Amber and I went to dinner at Mi Pueblo and sat and talked for a long time. It was great to have some girl time, but def bittersweet :( Amber also gave me my late b-day gift yesterday... and Hazel was kind enough to wrap it up for me....
It is in a tape prison!
But when I finally got the box open I found this haha
And inside the tissue was this super cute planner!
yay! thanks Amber!!
It was an absolutely GREAT weekend! I had so much fun going out dancing with the girls and doing crazy things. I'm sad that Amber is leaving, but I know we will stay in touch - because no one else shares my love for shopping and Borat quite like her :)
Yea, that's right. Josh and I are pro chefs!! Look at that Masterpiece!!
Last night we made Chicken Stir Fry and Fried Rice! I randomly picked up these seasoning packets the other day from the store, along with all of the fresh veggie ingredients and it turned out DEEEELISH!! :)
I highly suggest giving it a try! :)Happy Friday!!
It has been forever since I have done a GFoTW!!! Again, I think I am becoming immune to their freakish ways, but yesterday I realized that I need to snap out of it! These people are freaks!!
This realization came when I saw this for about the millionth time:
I'd say that this old man is at the pool probably 3 out of every 5 times I go. He does not exercise. He comes solely to soak up the rays that shine into the pool house from the skylights above. The greatest part you ask? He lays there for about 45 minutes, and naturally the sun rays slowly shift - and he moves with them!!!! So I'll start my work out with him in the farthest lane from me and by the time I am done he has his arms and legs hanging over the side of the pool into my lane!!
This old man comes complete with a huge belly, bright red swim trunks, and a white sweatband. I'm tempted to let him know that he can sunbathe at a public pool for less money than his gym membership and that he will get a constant flow of rays.... but I don't think he would listen.
As with pretty much all retail establishments, each month my work gets a new CD, that we play OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER some more for the entire month.
Usually the CD is about 3-4 hours long, so you hear every song twice a day and about a billion times a month. Because of this, there are two stages that we go through with the songs on the CD, the first is obsession and the second is sickness. I'm currently obsessed with Enrique's song Heartbeat! I just Love it!
With that said, I decided to look up the music video, and I was totally shocked at what I saw. I mean, lots of music videos are racy these days, but this one!! Whoa man!!
Please pay close attention at 00:45, 03:30, and 03:37 ... those three moments totally made my mouth drop!
HOLY COW!!! RIGHT?!?!?!
In college I was a Comms major, and I spent my fair share of classes studying film and understanding symbols, and let me tell you - that pole on his bed, is DEF a phallic symbol... without question! Man o man Enrique, way to make a comeback!!
This weekend had it's ups and downs, and by downs I mean some big ones, but today we will focus on the ups!
On Saturday I was supposed to meet up with my good friend Katie and her sister Becca who was in town from VA, but plans changed and I still needed to take care of some things in the city -so off Josh and I went!
First Stop: The Westfield on Market St!
It was a beautiful day in the city! :)
They had a smart car exhibit inside! I just had to sit in one!
I love riding the escalators in this mall, the first few floors have curved escalators!! Josh on the other hand... not so much!
While we were there my main order of business was to stop in at Vera Bradley! I picked up a few birthday gifts and then got this cutesy for myself! It is the "Knot Just a Clutch" in the new Very Berry Paisley print - love it! :)
Then we decided to walk to Chinatown on a mission for the Fortune Cookie Factory!
The Chinatown Gate!
Thanks to my iPhone I was able to map out how to find the small alley where the place was!
It is a little hole in the wall, but the cookies are so freaking good!
We got a bag of the flat ones and the folded ones with fortunes :) Great Success!
Then we headed back to Union Square to the parking garage, and saw the cable car!
And Neiman Marcus!
Josh couldn't stop eating the cookies!
When we got back to town we went out to dinner in downtown Santa Rosa, and there was a Lucy on display!
Then on Sunday we had our End of the Year work meeting! It was PJ Party Themed and we had a feast of slumber party food!
Such a great weekend despite the few hiccups, but I just keep telling myself everything is meant to be!
While browsing through Tuesday Morning (sadly the only store worthwhile in our outlet mall) I found this gem! This one of a kind beaut brings a WHOLE new meaning to the term "beach theme"!! bahaha
I mean really? Who would want those those nasty sea horses holding up their table?? ANND to make matters worse it was outrageously priced at $189.00!!! What!??! The worst part - a few days later it was gone - so someone actually BOUGHT IT!!!!
IVY!!!!!!!!!!!! At LITTLE WOMAN, LITTLE HOME!!!!!!! Thank you to everyone who entered! And thank you for making the last 300 posts so fun and memorable! I love reading your comments everyday, they always make me laugh!
I'm a recent graduate of Sonoma State University, trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Josh and I have been together for almost 7 years and are loving living together and going where ever our travels take us! This blog is for family and friends, new and old, to keep up with us and our life :)
