Back in Action…again!

Howdy ya’ll! Ok, I know I have been SO bad with blogging lately, it’s the whole summer thing, I promise. But I am going to definitely try and be more regular, now that things have calmed down. So hereeee…is another catch up entry.

I moved back to Houston! Only for like, 5 weeks, but it works for me and I was ecstatic to be hre. It took a3 days of packing (to which I managed to accumulate a ton of stuff and still forget a few things…), 10 hours of driving and an obligatory stop at the first Whataburger across the border before I made is back to the greatest city and state in the nation…Houston, Texas! And now, HERE I AM!

I started a new job. I am at a new law firm in downtown and it is just wonderful!

You think your office building is big? Check mine out.

I have finally left the wide world of plaintiff’s law and gone to the defense dark side, as some call it. I personally love it! I am working in environmental law and thin it is SO interesting. My father can be so proud…no matter all my adversity to being an engineer like him, I am still handling hazardous material and filter sludge just like him! The apple didn’t fall far from the tree there…or in our terms, the trash didn’t fall far from the landfill?

I caught up with friends! Oh, and family. Yepp, everyone’s here. Little bro is back home too working and that’s always lovely. I got to have margaritas and foroy with Fit Chick Britt and catch up on all her new life changes.

I also saw some old friends from HS, even hit up an Astros game with my superfan friend Tiff!

Tiff and I at the Houston Astros v. Pittsburgh Pirates game

My new Astros shirt turned out way cute!

We had a close call at the game actually…check this out. We went to get a hot dog during the 5th inning, after my main man Hunter Pence batted of course.

What a baseball stud!!

The first place was sold out so we walked down a bit further to get one. Well when we get back, we learned that one of the Pirates players had thrown a bat into the stands and it landed in our seats! That wouldn’t have tickled had a major league player zonked me in the head with a bat. So a hot dog saved out lives, god bless those pork/beef mixture case entrails.

I got frizzy hair.  Thanks Houston, for having the worst humidity known to man. I had been having SUCH great hair days in Birmingham and sure enough the minute I drove into town, I got big ol’ Texas hair again. 2 cans of hair spray later, I am working on controlling that so that I don’t scare people away.

So that’s where I am and what I am doing now. I promise I will have something good for you in the next few days, there is always something exciting going on here at home. Have a wonderful Monday everyone!


WalMart…its defensive driving and birrth control in one.

Happy Sunday everyone. I wish I could say it was a Sunday funday, but in the world of law school, it was more of a Sunday workday and that just doesn’t rhyme as well.
Had to spend the morning recovering from the weekend in ATL, so I slept in. Fortunately, I go to a Baptist University and the library doesn’t open until 1pm. Then I hit the library and finished my Response Motion for Summary Judgement and Memorandum Brief. Were writing about on behalf of this whiny woman who choked on a goose bone, and I’ve about had enough of her.
After levying the lib, I did the one thing no person should ever do. Go to WalMart on a Sunday afternoon. The point of the visit was just to get lunchmeat and tackle my current home problem, which is that my garbage can like, stinks. I don’t even know why, I cloroxed it just last week. Something has to done, and WalMart has everything. There were WAY too many choices, lord knows if it’ll work.
But not only doesn’t it have any product you could imagine, it serves so many other purposes…
Defensive Driving. If you have never driven in the Lakeshore WalMart parking lot, it’s the best lesson money cannot buy. Defensive, offensive, obstacle course, they have it all. I pray that Bumble and I make it put alive every time. (For those of you that don’t know, Bumble is my yellow 2010 Chevy Camaro with black stripes who I refer to as an animate object regularly.)
Birth control. Why am I the only person at WalMart without a child? Or seven for that matter? And why is that store like a playground for children of all ages? All I want is to get my air freshener and Special K cereal and get the HECK out of there. Instead, I have to dodge toddlers like an NFL player around defenders. Made it out safe…this time.
On top of all that, I decided NOT to wear my contacts or glasses all day and just kind of stated blankly at people and products. Awesome. Hopefully that box of Special K isn’t like, laundry detergent or something since I couldn’t see it.
On a happy note, I got a sweet package from Mom today full of St. Party’s decorations.
They’re so cute (even though they don’t really match my place) and Im trying to post a picture but I’m using the WordPress app and don’t really know how so we will see if it works! there’s even an app for this. That way, I can write to you while watching Iron Chef on my chaise lounge. What did we do before iPhones? After this, I’m using this little gadget to book plane tickets to Texas for spring break! Hello tickets to Kid Rock at the rodeo, thank you Daddy!
Ok…time to tackle the trash can. I’ll keep you posted.
