Happy Anniversary to me!

There was a major milestone for me yesterday.  March 28, 2012 was my one year anniversary at my job.  Woo!!Hoo!!  Happy Anniversary to me!!!  I celebrated with some really good cupcakes.  Honestly I think that yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting is just about the best thing ever.

2009 - 2011 were not the best years of my career life.  I survived two lay-offs in 2 years and about of 13 months or so of unemployment. Thank you God!!  It was a tough, horrible experience and I wouldn't wish it on anyone not even my worst enemy.

I have been so lucky at this job and wake up every day happy to be there.  One thing that I think about almost every day, "I get paid to do this! How sweet is this?"  Being a publicist isn't curing cancer but I get to work for a place that makes people so happy.  I don't have a job, I have but a career I love.

Since this is my only anniversary, I am going to rejoice in it.  Today's theme is my anniversary. Enjoy!!!

Sugar Sugar

Holy Cats!
I am soooooo tired. Over the last month and a half, I have made a commitment to attend at least 1 Zumba class a week and 1 day with my trainer.  Actually there have been weeks where I have done 2 classes a week and training.  I've stuck to it and so here I sit exhausted but feeling good about myself.

I am starting to see a difference except my belly.  I can't seem to lose that gut.  I've always had a belly even as a kid.  Plus it would help if I would stop eating cupcakes.  Society Bakery is walking distance from my office so it's so easy to take a break and grab a sweet, delicious, sugary, awesome yellow and chocolate frosted covered cupcake.  Droooooollll!!! I have a weakness for all things sweet.

I think today's theme should be sweets.  I heart it and I'm not sorry that I do.  Enjoy!

I drink alone

I made a big decision in my life.  It's been something that I've been thinking about for the couple of weeks or so.  It's a big step and I am not sure if I am gonna regret it but here goes.  For the last 10 years for so, I have been praying pretty much every day to meet and marry the man of my dreams.  And no dice, not even close. My decision: I am gonna stop praying for it.  I've lost faith on that aspect.  Maybe I am just not meant to have anyone? It's not easy for me to do this but I think I have to face the reality.  I just might be on a solo gig.  The world is my stage and I am on it alone but still fabulous. Now if I could just get a make-up and hair person to follow me around at all time.

What if there isn't anyone out there for me?   All my years of single-hood, I've never had anyone say to me "I have the perfect person for you".  Not one!  Nor I don't remember the last time I had a date or the last time I met someone that I truly connected with but I can remember all the goobers, creeps and jerks that I've dated over the last 10 years.  It's a long, sad list.  Actually, it's a list of depressing dates. I don't wish that on anyone, not even my enemies. So goodbye online dating, you've been completely worthless so suck it!

It's time for today's theme. Going and being solo.  Enjoy!

My Mommy

It's been 23 years since I lost my mom. I don't want to remember the day we lost her or all the pain we felt. I want to remember some of  the good times in her life.  In her honor, I am using the color purple because it was her favorite. And this soundtrack is for my mommy. It's the music and TV shows she loved. The TV show soundtracks bring back so many great memories of us in our living room watching these shows.  It's funny, I was just a kid but I was watching these soaps with her.  It was one of the things that we bonded over.  And now that I am looking at the music, I think my mom dug her some bearded men.  Who can blame her?  Hope you enjoy the tunes!

Smash - And not the TV show.

I have decided that I would like to start a Smash Book.  So for the last 2 1/2 hours, I've been at my laptop looking up ideas and have yet to move from my couch.  Now if I could just get off my butt and do it.  I have boxes of memories that I saved over the last few years and I would to finally do something with it.  And this looks like something I can do.  I am not sure if I want to spend the money on it so I am going to try to make my own. Wish me luck!

Today was a very liberating day for me.  I believe I've shared with you that I had a falling out with a friend last year.  Actually it will be 1 year at the end of April. I've pretty much moved on but this past week I took a big step in completely moving on with my life without said "friend".  About 3 days ago I had decided that it was time to make it official and de-friend this person on Facebook.  I mentioned it to another really good friend that I was going to do that and then I just let it stew, however I didn't do it. But something happened today that made me change my mind. It's such a long drawn out story  and I don't want to bore you with it but I will say I did indeed de-friend this person, removed any pictures with that "friend" and removed all tagged photos with that "friend".  I was kinda nervous when I started doing it but by the end, I felt stronger.  After I finished, about an hour later I started to cry.  But I put my big girl pants on and completed the day.

It's really hard to admit when you make a bad choice, whether it's an outfit, date, haircut or friend.  I thought this friendship was real and that I would always have this person in my life forever. Heck, for a while I thought this person would stand with me when I finally got married.  But it seems that I put more effort, love and caring into this friendship. It was more lop-sided but I didn't realize it until these recent happenings. Time is will heal my wounds and I will find a better friend.  I am now free to move on from this whole mess and enjoy my life.

As they say in those cheesy movies "Live, live damn you!"  So I will. So today's soundtrack theme is freedom. Enjoy!
