I don't handle stress very well. I have tried all the tricks and attempts to manage it but when I get stressed I pretty much breakdown into a ball of useless.

I've got a situation going on in my life right now that calls for curling up into a ball of useless. I literally had to drag myself out of bed this morning. Give myself a 5 minute pep talk just to pull on my jeans.

Do you ever have a dream or two and then it comes true? or maybe some part of it does? This is happening to me right is actually kind of scary really.

On a happier note I am going to be in New York visiting K over at Lost to Gain  I am sooo very excited to see her, it has been months and I miss her!! I am going to be flying out tomorrow and returning monday morning at 7am.

I can tell you right now that we are going to make some interesting stories. This will be a great way to relieve some of that stress that is kicking my ass right now.

Some random Friday fun

Yes baby it is finally Friday. I was just thinking to myself I would like there to be a day that I don't wake up on a Monday counting down the hours till the weekend.

Last night I went for drinks & tapas with the girls and it was delicious and a good time.We tried this new place Meze, unfortunately online it said they had these great Happy Hour deals but once we got there that was not the case.  Bellydancer and I decided to venture to the Adult shop not too far from the restaurant. I got a few fun new things to add to the treasure box. She and I sat in the car and talked about our lives and relationships for about an hour. I love it when you just end up sitting there talking and don't realize when an hour has gone by. 
Spicy sausages w/a tomato sauce
This past weekend I went to a wedding for a friend I met right after Highschool. I met him at the same time I met the bestie G we are not nearly as close, shit I didn't even know he had a girlfriend all that time. Anyway, it was a beautiful wedding. I wore a grown up girl dress and I like to think I looked fabulous. I had been to an Indian wedding only once before but it was great then and great this time as well. I am now convinced I should buy a Sari just to have! They had a photobooth at the reception too! I absolutely love weddings, always have.

My parents have been in Hawaii for a week now and for 1. I am extremely jealous and B. My mom is missing us like crazy and ready to come home so that is what happens when you leave the kiddies at home!
I baked the hell out of some Oat meal Chocolate Chip cookies and some brownies this week. I will post the recipes in a separate post sometime this weekend but my younger brother helped me with the brownies so that was a lot of fun.
 Making a mess is his specialty. 
how can anyone say no to that face? 

That is all I have for now. If I figure out something else I need to say I will just come back

Breaking Dawn Trailer

OOh hell yes...seriously so very excited. I don't post more than once a day if I am lucky but I can't wait!

Day Nine: Nine Loves

Love #1: My Family & The Boy
  My family is seriously amazing. I don't know how better to put it. They drive me crazy and make me so happy all in a matter of seconds. The Boy is love :)

Love #2: My Friends
  I have some pretty fantastic friends. They are such a diverse group of people and they make me very happy :)
I can't seem to find a picture with all of them but you get the idea...

Love #3: Reading
  I use reading as my escape from the world. If I am stressed or just need a break I bury my nose in a book and don't come up until I am done. One day I hope to have a home big enough for a room full of books.

Love #4: Music/Concerts
  This always seems like a generic answer but really I love music I can find a song for any mood. If I am having a bad day a good song can change that fast. I love concerts. LOVE them.

Love #5: Food
   Ooh man I swear inside this chunky girl lives a 300 pound kid that can eat. I think about food all the damn time and that is why I will probably never be thin again. I workout so I can eat, I skip things sometimes just because I know that I would rather go eat. If we are going to hang out there had better be some food involved.

Love #6: The Internet
   I would really like to know what I did with my life before the internet. I know I must have occupied my time somehow.

Love #7: My fave TV Shows
  I love Grey's Anatomy, Dexter, Jersey Shore, True Blood, Shameless...the list goes on.
Love #8: Travel
  I mean this pretty obvious from previous posts. There is still so much traveling I want to do.

Love #9: Baking
  I don't really know if this falls under the food category but the actual baking process is something I really love. I love finding new recipes and trying them out. I love when I can quickly throw something together and it comes out better than the recipe I try so hard to get right another day.

Ooh the horror!

I've been a bad bad bloggy girl. I have had the most intensely packed last few weeks. I amazed myself at my ability to drink so much and still make it to work and out and about the last few weeks.

I went to a bbq for some coworkers, I made some sangria. Well this sangria I made along with X amount of vodka shots led to me actually passing out at the party. One minute rambling on in spanish about who knows what and the next I am sleeping sitting upright. The Boy had to fireman carry me out of the party and home where I unfortunately puked all over the house, him and myself. I woke up around 4am covered in puke and wondering how the hell I got home. That was the first blackout I have had since 21 so I am thinking it had to be a bad one. Of course it took me almost a week to recover and before I could even smell liquor without gagging. I think for almost 4 days I smelled vomit on everything and was convinced there was still some in my hair even after about 10 showers. I swore never to drink again.....

This is the only picture I have from the BBQ and I don't even remember taking it.

Day Eight: Eight Fears

OOoh the horror of it all...

It is much easier to come up with 8 fears no matter how ridiculous they are then it was to come up with 7 wants. How does that even make sense??

Fear #1: Dying by Shark attack.
         I know this seems completely ridiculous but I am really convinced that at some point in my life I will be involved in a shark attack and die. It has not completely paralyzed me enough to not get into the ocean but I won't get in past my waist.

Fear #2: Centipedes.
    I can handle just about any kind of bug but centipedes make me scream like a girl and run. I don't really know why but I can't come across one without freaking out and literally feeling sick to my stomach. Just looking at the picture makes me gag a little.

Fear #3: Failure
  Terrified I will not do anything with my life and end up a depressed old cat lady. I still can't figure out what I want to do with my life so that leads into thinking I will fail at life.

Fear #4: Not getting married
   This seems like a stupid fear but really I wonder all the time if I am ever going to get married. The idea of a wedding is exciting and I would love to have one but the idea of spending the rest of my life with someone and no one else terrifies me. I am really hoping one day that changes otherwise as I said in the 3rd fear I could end up a depressed old cat lady.

Fear #5: The nasty feeling in the pit of your stomach when your on a roller coaster.
   This is feeling scares me out of riding roller coasters or doing anything that involves a big drop because I am terrified that I will puke on myself or someone else.

Fear #6: Doing something embarrassing in front of my family or friends
   This is not your average I am a drunk fool embarrassing stuff. I am talking shitting, pissing myself, waking up naked in a puddle of vomit on a street corner type stuff.

Fear #7: Disposal of my perversion after I die
   This is another one of those irrational fears but sometimes I think to myself "What if I die today, who is going get rid of all my perverted shit so my parents don't see it?" I don't want to be thinking about this kind of thing but it is serious. I told G as my best friend its his duty to go in and get rid of it but what if we die in the same crazy accident or something?

Fear #8: Kids.
   I've said previously how I do not have any interest in having children. So naturally I am terrified that a few things related to kids will happen to me. 1. I will fall in love with a man that wants kids(The boy recently scared me a bit with this)  2. I will get pregnant and have an attack of conscience and have a kid I didn't really want 3. I will get struck by baby fever when my friends start having kids and decide to have one and regret all that nonsense too.

Day Seven: Seven wants

Seven wants: It will probably take me all day to write this post. There are a million things I want, material and otherwise.

Want #1: To be living in a place other than Chicago. Right now this is not possible because of some circumstances out of my control but as soon as it is I am leaving. I have several fears about this that I guess I will cover tomorrow but I definitely can not wait for it to happen.

Want #2: Money to travel. I don't want money for material things I want money to travel. Lots of it and lots of traveling. I seriously consider getting a 2nd job at least once a week just to have money to travel but then I would never have the time to do that.

Want #3: To know the future...
I guess this seems like a stupid desire since it is not really possible but I would just like to know what is in store for me.

Want #4: Super powers...I don't know which one in particular I would want the most but it would be pretty awesome to have some kind of super power

Want #5: Super model actually I don't think I need  super model body but I would love to be more fit and maybe not have such a bubble butt. I know most women would kill for it but I would kill to fit into regular jeans without a Beyonce booty thing going on.

Want #6: Harem of men all to myself. This is kind of a joke and kind of not. The Boy would not appreciate this but lets be real here, if I could have a group of men on call and not have to deal with any of their nonsense I would have it set up right away.

Want #7: Happiness. Whatever way it comes. I don't care if it means I am broke living in a cardboard box as long as I am happy.
