A brief Recap with No Pictures...What type of blogger am I

Hiya Folks!! Well obviously I have been SUPER busy over the past days so of course I havent had the willpower to write a blog. My view on blog entries is to only write them when you want to (or if you see a really awesome blog journal that you want to partake in). So anyway. It is almost 2 am and I need to wake up at 7 am to double check my bags and get ready... I am flying out to Atlanta tomorrow. I am going to be there until Saturday afternoon (pacific time) for training for my new job. So Im going to make this a very quick recap

Thanksgiving


Overall it was good. It was super stressful only at the point where we were putting everything in the oven. I knew that timing everything was going to be difficult but I didnt realize that it would be impossible. Ive been told that we have to host it a couple of times to semi get it down. Who knows. I dont think I want to host it again for a while. Its a lot of work, SUPER expensive, and a lot of cleaning (that we may or may not have fully finished yet).

My family (mom, dad, and brother only) came over. We served turkey, stuffing*, candied yams, mash potatoes, green bean caserole, cranberries, bread rolls, salad, and 2 pies. Our turkey was AMAZING. The best turkey I ever had. Kevin did a fantastic job of seasoning it and then we put chicken broth in the bag we cooked it in so it was so moist that it was falling off the bone (I even ate the white meat which I usually hate because it was so moist). *The stuffing was so much of a disaster that we had to throw the first batch down the sink and had to have my dad go out and get 2 more boxes of Stovetop. My green bean casserole was delicious. And I have cme to realize that I will never have a Thanksgiving without the rolls being burned on the bottom.

After we ate we played Loaded Questions and watched The Office. All in all it was fun but STRESSFUL.

Friday


Lounged around all day. That night I went out with a couple of my friends to the Hookah bar. It was awesome because I saw a friend I havent seen in months. We were there from 9 pm-2 am. Then Kevin came and met me over there hung out for a bit and then we went home. wE didnt go to bed until 4 am or so.

Saturday


The best day I have had in a long time. We went and visited with one of Kevin's cousins he hadnt seen in 17 years (since he was 11 years old-do the math lol). She is soo awesome and her house is to die for. We hung out with her and her husband and 2 year old daughter. Had wine and chocolate cake. I had an awesome shot of this tequila called Tres something... You don't need limes or anything with it. Soo smooth. I couldn't get enough of their house. Then we went out to eat at a good Mexican resturant and had the best Margaritas I have ever had. After we got back the boys watched a Rush Documentary (which Dave was nice enough to buy Kevin a copy of) and me and his cousin (Lynn) had girl talk. We ended up leaving there at 12 am. It was soo much fun

Sunday


Football in the morning. Shopping at Kohls with my friend who I hadnt seen in a while who I went to Hookah with on Friday. More football. Watched my boys (the Chargers) kick some Colts Butt! Then I went with one of my friends to Hookah.

I am leaving tomorrow at 11:30 am from LAX and I really doubt I will be on here too much. I will have scheduled posts (AKA kevin making sure the posts go through) because  I am participating in a 25 Days of Christmas blog journal/meme.

I love Christmas time! I love the fact that I can listen to Christmas music finally and hopefully start decorating for it,

Sorry this was much longer and more boring than I intended it. I hope you all have a fantastic week!!

Im trying to be motivated to blog

Hi folks! I really apologize for being scarce with my blogging lately. I have had a ton of time to blog but I havent really been motivated to blog. I have been keeping up with your blogs though. Been nice to read about what you all are doing for Thanksgiving. Has gotten me in the holiday spirits.


Our Thanksgiving
Don't worry turkeys... This year we are eating the pig.
Source

Kevin and I decided to host it at our place this year. My mom, dad, brother, and his boyfriend are coming over. My sister and brother-in-law are doing it at the inlaws this year.

Food (My Favorite!!)
-Ham (ordering)
-Stuffing (Making-boxed stuffing of course)
-Green Bean Caserole (im making)
-Mixed Veggie dish (kevn is making. His mom's recipe)
-Candied Yams (My mom is bringing)
-Bread Rolls (regular and Hawaiian)
-Cranberries (my mom is making)
-Pies (store bought-Apple and Pumpkin)

At least in our house this is definitely one of our favorite things about Thanksgiving.
Source

We will probably just eat, watch football (there is 3 games on that day!!), and play games. I am quite excited about it being at our place because we dont have to worry about the drive back home and leaving earlier than we would want to because we are tired. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday (yes, even more than Christmas) and that is because growing up it was always such a great time with family so I hope that will continue in our adult years.

Oh ya we got a new kitty to add to our family (so now we have 3 girl cats and 1 boy dog. Girls-4 Boys-2). She is super adorable. Her name is Athena and she is a Gray Siamese cat with green eyes and white markings on her stomach and she has boots. She is 6 weeks old and is a very fiesty, sweet, and curious little thing.
Isnt she just a cutie?

She likes to sleep a lot and it has to be on either me or Kevin. She loves to cuddle


Ok now onto Wee Bit of Me Wednesday!
Click to link up over at Leigh Ashley's if you want to play along!



{one} what kind of camera do you have? I have an awesome Fujifilm digital camera that I LOVE. I lost the usb cord though which is why there hasnt been any Vegas pictures or anything yet. Need to go get a new one... :(

{two} you just won $1000 and you have to spend it on yourself on one item. what do you buy? 

The car I want!! Really really bad!!

I would use it as a downpayment for a car. We really need another car.


{three} if you had to choose, would you rather live with your parents in the same house forever or 5000 miles away? 5000 miles away. I love my parents but I did the whole living with them thing. 


{four} is your christmas tree up yet? Nope that thing wont go up until after Thanksgiving. Its suppose to be the day after but we kinda dont have a tree or any decorations...Major slackers!!


{five} do you bring reusable bags to the grocery store? no. 
{six} which would be worse: listening to the same song on replay for the rest of your life or having to eat the same meal everyday for the rest of your life? Replay. At least Im getting good food over and over on the meal. Well hopefully. I get to pick this meal right. I could eat sushi or steak over and over and over again. :)


{seven} name 3 things you are thankful for this season. Having a job and money, my loved ones (this includes family, kevin, friends, and my animals), and sports!! LOL
{eight} do you dye/highlight your hair? if so, do you do it yourself or have it done at the salon? I have been dyeing/highlighting my hair since I was 14. I have done both. I prefer to have it done professionally. And now I am super lucky because I have a friend who is a hair styilist and she comes to my house to dye/highlight and cut my hair for a very inexpensive price. 


{nine} would you rather watch a movie at home or at the theater? at home. i really am not a big theater goer. (Unless its a movie I cant wait to see like Harry Potter).

{ten} would you rather win $1000/week for life or $5 million all at once? $1000 a week. that would make life a lot more simple. (I agree with Leigh)...Also less taxes taken out and I would know that I would always have that money. :)



Well I hope you all have a GREAT Thanksgiving. Eat a lot!! I know I will. :)
What are you all doing for Thanksgiving?

Feeling a Bit Ill But Happy that its Friday!!

Hiya folks! I am feeling a bit ill today. Its my own fault though because I am too stubborn to put soy milk in my Chi Latte and I may or may not be lactose intolerant. So sometimes I get sick from Starbucks...but its so good that I keep drinking it anyway. I also was awake all night with an ear infection so you can feel sorry for me for that one since I didn't bring that on myself.

Well are you all ready for Friday oddities? I sure am!

Chihuahua as a Police Dog?
The smallest crime fighter.
source

WTH were the Japanese police thinking when they decided to use this tiny dog as their new police dog? Seriously, who is afraid of this tiny little thing? I would be more afraid of a rat.Okay so its not used for fear but for search and rescue,but couldn't they use a hound dog for that? They have the best noses around. Well at least the police are geting a lot of attention about Peach the Chihuahua.


Kristina Ross, an Idaho woman, was jailed because she posed as a physician at a bar and tricked 2 women into agreeing to a breast exam. Okay folks, when you are at a bar there are a couple of things you shouldn't believe or do and one of those are let someone (even if they are a doctor) give you a breast exam at the bar. Whats next? A pap smear up on the pool table? Two women actually let this "doctor" fondle their breasts at the bar... I think they should be jailed for being so naive. 

A Wisconsan man shot his TV after hearing that Bristol Palin made it to the Dancing with the Stars finale. Now I understand his anger and frustration at Bristol making it to the finale but seriously what did his poor TV do? Nothing! So the man was charged with reckless endangerment and using a deadly weapon and the TV did not survive.

Oh I got an award recently that I forgot to post about on here because I have been super busy laying around on my butt watching reality tv a bad blogger. Jumble Mash (who has an awesome frickin random and funny blog that you all should check out) passed this award onto me about a week ago so now I need to pass it on as well :)

She gave me the Honest Scrap award which I am honored to recieve because I try to be as honest and real as possible on here and also because I love Jumble Mash.


The only rule for this award is to list 10 honest things about myself. Oh Lordy!

1) I use to have a big lying problem (I dont really have that anymore, or I don't think so). I use to lie about stupid stuff though or to make up stories to make myself seem like I had a cool life. Yah now I just embrace my hum drum lifestyle
2) I have days where I feel fat and ugly. And even though I am not anywhere close to being fat I still beat myself up over a tiny bit of pudge
3) I use to be a strong conservative Republican...until I realized that all my beliefs were indeed liberal.
4) I am pretty passive with my friends. If they want to do something that I don't want to do I will usually go along with it just because I don't want to mix things up.
5) I hate hate hate when anything negative is said about the homosexual community and that is the one thing I will have a debate about no matter what. My little brother is gay and several of my friends are also gay.
6) I have lost friendships over a sports team... Yah I am that lame
7) I have an unhealthy addiction for bad bad reality shows. I just finished watching a full season of Toddlers & Tiaras and was disappointed there wasn't another I could watch. I have watched 4 seasons of Making the Team: Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
8) I have over 60 pairs of underwear...I think I have a problem.
9) I use to have a shopping problem where I would shop when I was depressed or having a bad day. Shopping is like my comfort food but I have been doing a lot better at hiding it.
10) I was raised religious and spent a lot of time in church. Now I avoid churches, I don't like nor follow a specific religion, and I am still trying to figure out what exactly I believe in.

There is no rule in passing this award on but I would like to pass it along to a couple of blogs that I read who keep it 100% real all the time!

Freckles and Fudge
Mommy Loves Stilletos
My Heart Shaped Life
Welcome to Sara's Organized Chaos. 
Unexpected Surprises

Welps...I am super excited for this weekend because Im seeing Harry Potter tonight!! Then tomorrw I have Rush for my society/sorority that Im an alumni sponsor for then a UFC fight night over at our couple friends house. Then Sunday is FOOTBALL day!! :)

What are your plans for the weekend?

Just a Wee Bit!

Hiya folks! How are you? I am great. I had a fantastic day that included a picnic and a walk with Chey and her daughter and then date night at one of my favorite restaurants. I ate too much but it was super yummy. I had Clam Chowder (divine), Steak Yakatori (orgasmic) and a Devil sushi roll (tasty and spicy). So I figured I would do Wee Bit Of Me since I really don't miss out on doing these. Enjoy. And look at my earlier post for a mini Vegas recap if you haven't already.


{one} what time do you normally wake up?
Um it depends. When I am actually working usually 6 am. Currently (since I am not working) and on weekends usually 9 am
{two} do you have a go-to song for karaoke?
I don't go enough to have a go-to song but I guess if I did it would be "Just a Girl" by Gwen Stefani. 

{three} if you could only see black and white except for one color, what color would you choose to see?
I would want to see green because even though I am not a "nature girl" I think I would be sad if I couldnt see grass, trees, and other plants.
See it is gorgeous!

{four} what color best matches your personality?
I would say pink because its bright and crazy. 

{five} if you could choose one meal to cook better than anyone else, what would it be?
Hmm Ive seen so many good answers.  I like Leigh Ashley's answer of sushi. But I guess I would want to be the best at making steak or chili. Kevin already says I make great chili but it would be awesome to be the best at making it and imagine all the chili cookoffs I could win. But steak...Man steak is SOOO good!
Source

{six} how many keys do you have on your key ring?
I think 6 or 7 (car, condo complex door, mail, kevin's work, kevin's parking garage, and one random)
{seven} do you give your pets birthday/christmas gifts?
Of course. They get christmas stockings (decorated with their names even). Usually toys. They tend to like the wrapping paper more
{eight} when your plate has different foods on it, do you mix or not?
No!! I will even put up barriers between some of my food (i.e. ketchup and hamburger). I don't like my food touching especially sauces and bread.
{nine} if you could hire someone to do one thing for you all the time, what would it be?
I would say its a toss up between cooking and cleaning... Can I just say "keep house" and that would include all of that 
{ten} when flying, do you prefer the window or aisle seat?
Well i like both. I like the window because I like looking out. But I like aisle because I have long legs so I like all the room I could get.

:) Happy Wednesday/Thursday!!

Look Who's Back! Back Again!

Yep I didn't die in Vegas.  I got back Monday evening and I slept/rested all day yesterday. Vegas was BEYOND amazing and I had a blast. I will do a recap soon but I can't find my camera cord so I may do a recap  with no pictures and then share the pictures later lol. We shall see.

Here is a quick recap of what we did though and some tips to do Vegas right,

Friday Night: We arrived really late at night. Went to walk around New York, New York, Excalibur, and the Luxor. It was just a fun night of being silly and touristy.

Tip: Ask for directions if you cant find something or else you will just be wandering around aimlessly. 
Quote of the night: Dude Cris Angel looks like a Penis!


Saturday: Drink all day party all night-motto for Saturday! Walked the strip from 10:30 am- 5 pm. Then we played games in our hotel room (we stayed at the MGM). That night we went to 3 clubs (Tabu, Studio 54, and Eva Longoria's). Eva's was the best that night. She has a fantastic club and it was nice to get free drinks at all the clubs.
This was me on Saturday night. Ready for the clubs (from my phone)

This is the one in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood

Tip: Get your souvenir drinks at Fat Tuesdays (located in a bunch of the hotels including MGM, Planet Hollywood, Excalibur, Imperial Palace) because they are cheaper, tastier, and stronger. (I got a football with Belinni and Peach in it). Also always get Jello Shots!


See thats Adam Richman from Man vs. Food. He is holding food from Hash House a Go Go.

Sunday: We went and ate at Hash a Go Go which is a pretty famous (and amazing) diner at Imperial Palace. Adam Richman (the guy from Man vs. Food) approves of it! Then we walked the strip a bit more. Then 2 of us went to the spa and met some people there. Ended up staying there for 4 hours. We went to Thunder from Down Under that night! It was fantastic. We ended our trip going to XS at Encore!! BEST CLUB Ive ever been to. I would reccomend it to everyone!
Me and my "little" with the Thunder from Down Under boys

Tip: Get the Monorail Pass!! It is only $12 for the day ( a full 24 hour time span) and trust me it can save your feet if you are club hopping or going to a club on the opposite side of the strip then where you are staying. 


Tip 2: Don't pay to get into clubs. Always take little passes from the people on the street. Sometimes its worth it to tip them $10 because they'll give you VIP passes to 4 high end clubs and drink passes too. Always find out the guest lists at all the clubs. We didn't wait in line at all this weekend nor pay and we got free drinks at every club we went to.


Tip 3: GO TO XS!! It is amazing!
This is what it looked like. The dance floor opens to the outside. Overlooking the pool. That gazebo is actually in the center of the pool and there is a girl dancing in it. It is like a mini rave
Quote of the Night: If the ground is glittery then it is not dirty. (I had to walk barefoot for a small part of the strip because my feet were KILLING me)


Monday: Left Vegas at 12 pm and got back at 4 pm. Slept until Kevin came home from work and jumped into his arms. I missed him a lot :)

Well thats my mini recap for you :) Excited for my long one?

Exciting News Revealed & Friday Oddities (PG-13 Edition)

Hola folks!! Well I am able to tell you all my exciting news. 


I will be flying out to Atlanta for a week of training on November 29th. I am super super excited about this job. I will be a territory manager (outside sales) for business to business sale of engravable materials. I think I will do a great job in outside sales and I will be making way more money than at my current job. AND I will be getting paid bi-weekly instead of monthly (which sucked)


 I quit my other job and I am now on "vacation" until then.  I could have just given my two weeks at my job and then not had a break in between the two but I didn't for a couple of reasons 1) I was miserable there and not performing well and 2) I have never given myself time off since I graduated high school. I worked full time when I was in college (full time). I got my 1st "career" job right out of college and went from my college job directly to that 1st job. Then when I got my second job I took 2 days off before I started. So I think its important that I give myself this time off to relax, not be burnt out, and get my ducks in order. So woot!!




Okay now it is some time for Friday Oddities! 
(Please do not read the following stories if you don't want to read about sex or if you get offended easily. I warned you so no bitching at me for being a pervert or rude.)


So I "stole" the first two from Stacy Says. She always has some great stuff that she features and I love her blog so you should check it out.


Too lazy to buy a vibrator? Check out this Drive Thru Sex Shop




Source


Yah. I can't believe that this is real. In Alabama they felt that it was necessary to make a drive thru sex shop. Why? I don't get it. I mean sure sometimes after a long hard day at work you don't want to get out of the car to buy those edible panties you have been wanting. Even with three lanes, I wonder how long the wait is. 

Oh on another note...Sex shops are still banned in Alabama (ugh don't get me started on why this pisses me off). So in order to be legal it has to be serving a "medical reason" so customers have to fill out a health survey before purchasing anything.

This Cricket has Big Balls!

Source

This is a Bush Cricket whose balls account for 14% of its body weight and scientists are saying this is the reason behind why they are so promiscuous. When animals have big testes they are more likely to mate with many females. (So beware women if your significant other has larger than usual balls he might be more promiscuous) 


The Bush Cricket's ball weight proportion to body size  would be equivalent to a man whose balls weigh 11 lbs. CRAZY!

Weird Sex Facts

Worlds Oldest Condom...Made of Linen


Now I present you with the top 10 weird sex facts.


1) Vibrators and Sex are better than a Tranquilizer
2) Kellogg's Corn Flakes were invented to reduce masturbation...
3)Sperm on face=No wrinkles
4)Sex makes you beautiful (so have sex with more ugly people!)
5)In the 1500s condoms were made of linen. 
6)Wig for your privates... Hmm no thanks
7) Missed the gym? Have sex. It will burn 300 calories every 30 minutes. Yah I avoid the gym like the plague...but I still exercise :)
8)Women like dirty talk more! (Yah this shouldn't be on the weird facts list)
9) Shoes and feet are the most commen fetishes. I won't feel so bad on my next shoe shopping trip
10) Blow Job came about because "blow" was slang for ejaculation and "blowsy" was slang for prostitute. 


Well I shall be in Vegas this weekend on my girls trip. We leave tonight and I will be back Monday late afternoon probably. I will try to take tons of pictures and have a good recap for you when I get back...But I cant promise anything!! 


Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Took a little Blogcation and a Birthday!

Hello Folks! Sorry I took a mini blogcation. I think I am back but Im not positive yet. I have some exciting news that hopefully Ill be able to share on Friday but it means I may or may not be kinda scarce in this bloggy world for the next couple of weeks or so. Ill fill you in with the details when I am able to. :) So today is Wednesday and that means Wee Bit of Me Wednesday.

Oh wait you want a little bit of an update? Ok um... This weekend was pretty low key. Went and saw kevin's band play on Friday, girl time on Saturday, and football on Sunday. I am happy that the Chargers have won 2 in a row (there may still be hope). This week has been whatever but it seems to be ending on a positive note (hopefully more on that on Friday). Oh and I will be going to Vegas on a girls trip from Friday-Monday. So yah, go ahead and be jealous ;). 

Now enjoy learning more about me like you do every week. :) And link up over at Leigh Ashleys blog (click on the little logo below) because its a lot of fun


{one} do you collect anything? if so, what and how long have you been collecting?
I use to collect thimbles (back when I was in high school). I guess I semi-collect shot glasses now...especially ones from Vegas. Im sure I will come back with a couple on Monday. 
This is just a small part of our collection  but 3 of these are Vegas themed. Oh and my old roommate took my black and pink Vegas shot glass so I have to replace that one of course.
 
{two} what is one cleaning tip that you swear by? Avoid it at all costs!!! Im not kidding. I really do avoid it as much as possible... :(

 
{three} who would you call for bail money? Kevin...He would be able to come get me or at least find someone who could :0
{four} what is one thing you miss about being a kid? the lack of responsibility!(AMen to that Leigh Ashley) and my dolls and playing with my siblings. We were really close.
Me, my brother, and my sister soon after we came back from the HP release party of Deathly Hallows. And yes I am a dork and I was actually reading. I didn't want to put down the book to take a picture lol
Source

{five} name a few of your guilty pleasures.
Starbucks and Wedding Blogs. OBSSESSED!


{six} how early do you start your holiday shopping?
I usually wait till the week of Christmas. Yep, I am that cool :0


{seven} what is a family tradition that you would like to pass on to your significant other/children? I would say the way we open presents. I would want to open stockings Christmas morning while eating our breakfast and then open the rest after we finish eating. Also to open 1 present on Christmas eve. Another tradition is to pass down to the kids once they are old enough and actually here lol these are imagination kids right now (whether it be my own or my nieces and nephews). It is a Thanksgiving contest. Where the kids weigh themselves before they eat and then after and whoever gains the most weight wins. Yep we're fattys.
{eight} what do you consider your greatest achievement? Hmm getting through college, being financially independent, and being able to get a job straight out of college.
{nine} what do you do to pamper yourself? I get massages and my nails done
{ten}
if you were to start your own restaurant, what would it be called? Kevin is so much better at this than I. Is there a Love Shack? Im sure there is but if not thats what I would call it. Only because Im too lazy to think of a better answer right now ;)


A Big Happy Birthday to one of my favorite Bloggers! Ashley from Love, Ashely. Go wish her a Happy Birthday and check out her blog if you havent already. She is pretty fantastic. I hope you have a very lovely birthday :)

You Asked and He Answered- Sport's Expertise Revealed

You asked and he answered!! Before we get to the answers a little bit more about our expert. 


His name is Kevin and he is 28 years old. His teams are the LA Lakers, LA Dodgers, LA Kings, and the SD Chargers.He has had a love of sports since he was a kid and is the most obsessed sports fanatic I have ever met (and trust me I have met a lot). Kevin is unique though because his sports knowledge spans across a variety of sports and he can name championship titles on the spot. I once asked him to name the past 20 Superbowl champions and he did it, no problem. He can rattle off sports trivia and statistics as easily as the ABCs. He spends all of his free time watching games, playing sports video games, and talking on the phone with his friend about sports.He is the most interesting man in the world one of the biggest sports nuts ever.

The Questions

Aimee (yep me) Asked: 

1)How can the Chargers win the Super Bowl?
It's not a complicated formula for a team with this much talent. They need to minimize mistakes. If they play mistake-free football, nobody in the NFL can beat them. It all goes to the coaching staff. A disciplined coach, like a John Gruden or Bill Cowher would have won multiple Super Bowls with this team. But AJ Smith and his ego are keeping the good coaches away. Once he's put in charge of player personnel decisions and not GM anymore, the Chargers will flourish.

2) Best Boxer of all time and why?

Sugar Ray Robinson. Nobody else has had his combination of speed, power and defensive ability in any weight class. Even Muhammad Ali considers him the best.

3) What sport team would Obama be the best on?
Sourc
Obama is a pretty good basketball player from what i understand, so any team in the NBA.

4) Why aren't you a sports newsmen or analyst?
No idea.... (He would be so great on sports center or ESPN. He has such a passion for sports but I wonder if he would be able to keep his bias to himself)

How did you become so good at being a walking encyclopedia? since what age, etc..haha I'm so nosy.
 
Haha! I've always been a sports buff, but that knowledge also extends into other areas as I'm a very curious person who loves to read about new things. I almost made it on to Jeopardy once. =) (Yah he is also very modest obviously)

Football, Soccer or Baseball?
Football or baseball. I love them both rather equally. Soccer is not up there. (How he can not pick Football way above the other two I cannot comprehend. )

What's the worst/embarrassing thing he's done for his love of sports? 
 
I'm pretty sure I've canceled first or second dates to watch a game. I also knew a relationship wouldn't last when she tried to make me give up sports


1)Who is that older Asian woman who sits in the front row at the Laker games???
She's their acupuncturist. ;-) (D-Lo. I looked up the right answer for you. Her name is Yori and she is just a rich long time fan who has had season tickets since the 80s. Here is an interesting article that breaks down the seating chart of other "famous" season ticket holders)
Source....Some of the Lakers' most loyal fans

1)Who is the best roster in Laker history?
I'm tempted to say this year's, but of course, they haven't won anything yet. I'm going to go with the 1986-87 Lakers. Magic, Kareem, Worthy, Byron Scott and Kurt Rambis starting with guys like Mychal Thompson and Michael Cooper off the bench? That team was unstoppable. (Well I am going to go and say this years team. And if (or when) they win the championship this year, and yet another 3peat, than I think there will be no question)

2)Best fighter in the UFC (pound-for-pound)? The *only* correct answer is GSP, obvs.
Source

I agree. GSP is easily the best in the UFC. Most versatile, best athlete, powerful and quick. Deadly combination.

3) How come soccer isn't more popular in the US?
Because it's kind of a pussy sport. There's very little violence, guys get taken off on stretchers when they stub their toe and the average soccer player is about 5"7, 160 lbs.   (LOL I love how biased and real Kevin can be...I, like the typical American, love to see super tough plays, hard hits, and tough men so that is why I don't like soccer very much and why I love Football and Hockey)


1. Do you think Farve should have retired last year?
Yes, but not because the talent isn't there, because the passion isn't. He really didn't want to play anymore but the Vikings forced his hand, and you see the results this year. Last year should have been his year. (Yes! 500 times over...that old man should just retire and stay retired.Oh and maybe the whole sexting woudn't have been featured so heavily and I would have been saved from having to see his small package)

2. What do you think it'll take for the Twins to win the world series?
They will need some more starting pitching, as well as some luck in the injury department. A smaller market team like them needs to have the best in the game when it comes to scouting, because they can't spend money like some of the bigger teams.

3. All time favorite sports moment that you've personally witnessed?
Back-to-Back home runs in a Dodger playoff game.

4. When are you going to man up and marry my blog bestie?
This is not a sports question. (I didn't let him in on the fact that I told you that they could be not related to sports lol but trust me you wouldn't have gotten an answer from him anyway)


1)Should Lebron have joined the Heat?
Yeah, I don't see why not, it's good for the league. However, he should have manned up and done it a different way. However, i'm fine with people hating LeBron, so I don't care that he did it. (LeBron should just play basketball and stop talking. He is one of the biggest sports douches.)

2)Who is the greatest women's wrestler of all time.
The Fabulous Moolah.

3)Should porn be an olympic sport. 
Yes, yes it should.  (LOL I was cracking up big time at this)

Well thank you everyone that participated and submitted questions. I hope you all learned something and got your questions answered. For next week Sports Entry I will start a Sports 101 segment where I give the very basics of what you need to know about each sport. I will also be highlighting why women should love sports. 


Hopefully you all have a great Thursday and just think tomorrow is Friday!!

You can't Handle All This Good Stuff!

**LAST CHANCE!!** You have until 11 pm EST (or you can try to sneak it in on thursday early morning) to submit your sports-related questions (or whatever you want to ask) to the blog's token Sports Expert, Kevin (aka my boyfriend aka writer of this awesome blog). Come on...you know you want to, its super simple. Just leave your question in the comment of any blog entry you want to and I will make sure he answers it.**

Okay folks. Happy day after election day!! (That should be an official holiday). CA did pretty well for itself except for Prop 19 and Prop 25 but hey at least Meg Whitman didn't become governor. :) I am happy it is hump day. I am trying my hardest to do at least a little work but failing pretty miserably (oh well).

30 Days of Truth
Day 18: Something you Wish You Hadn't Done in your Life
**okay this is actually Day 21's prompt but the prompt for Day 18-20 are pretty deep and I don't have time to write a very opinionated post right now. Those will need preplanning**

I don't believe in regrets and I am also a big believer in fate and "everything happens for a reason". So even though I have had some shitty events happen to me I wouldn't chnge them. Everything that has happened in ,my life has gotten me to where I am now. I wouldn't want to risk changing anything or thinking of the "what-ifs'" because I am pretty pleased with where I am now. I have a great relationship, loved ones who care for me, and I am in a stable and happy place in my life...Hopefully soon I will have a change of jobs :)


{one} do you still use a checkbook?
Yep. I sometimes write checks for my carpool, to pay certain bills, and random emergencies that come up and I can't use my card. I never have cash on me

{two} what size shoe do you wear?
6.5-7.5 Depends on the type of shoe.

{three} scary movies or happy endings?
I like both., Sometimes I like happy endings but sometimes you just need a good scary movie

{four} do you prefer spontaneity or stability?
Stability. I do like spontaneity sometimes but if I had to chose one or the other than it would have to be stability. I would drive myself insane if things weren't stable

{five} what is the most embarrassing cd that you own?
Currently? I don't know. I don't really have all my cds...Oh wait!! I know I have CareBears Holiday Hugs cd. I got it like 3 years ago... Yah Im special but i like this CD
 
 


{six} do you watch reality tv?
Some but not the ones that most people watch. I don't like Jersey Shore or anything like that. I like Project Runway and America's Next Top Model. I also like Wedding reality and food network reality as well.

{seven} what is your favorite home-made meal?
My chili. Wait is that cocky to say that? Its yummy ok... mmmmm I guess I also love when I have authentic mexican meals. I just have to get closer to my friends who make them lol

{eight} do you have any allergies?
I use to have a lot. Now i am just allergic to vicodin, penicillin, and morphine :) All the good stuff

{nine} if you could open your own restaurant/store, what would it be?
Good question. I would like to help open a hookah bar one day. Where it is a hookah lounge with a huge dance floor and bar. On the sides it can have all the couches and canopys and the middle can have the dance floor, a bar (or 2). It would be cool

{ten} would you ever go skydiving (or have you been)?
I do want to go skydiving one day

I may or may not be boycotting Facebook..

Yah, I can't really stay away from that social network drug but I am not reading any stalker feeds today and that is because the damn Giants won the World Series (boo and hiss). I am not going to be a witch about it here because that has gotten me in trouble before. All I am going to say is congrats...now the Giants and their fans can go on and on about their one title and make fun of teams with more titles than them (seriously I have seen so many Giants fans being complete douches to the Yankees and the Dodgers). Live it up but you still have less rings than my team (Go Dodgers!)...Okay that is all.
**You still have a chance to "Ask the Sports Expert". Leave your sports (or not) related questions in a comment. On Thursday I will reveal the "expert's" (aka my boyfriend the walking sports encyclopedia) answers/ non-biased opinions. Come on I know you have some!**

So Happy Tuesday everyone, only 4 more days until the weekend (shit its too early to start a weekend countdown?). Today I have a big entry for you because I have been slacking on my 30 Days of Truth and I am also participating in Top Two Tuesday for the first time. So on with the show blog



Today's theme is Favorite Gifts you've Recieved.

This is super hard for me because I have been blessed with great gifts my whole life. I also have a horrible memory so I am sure there are gifts I got when I was younger that I have forgotten.

1) My mom bought me all my dorm room necessities and decorations for my freshman year of college...She even decorated my dorm room for me while I was at a CC meeting  It included the basics ( fridge, microwave, lamp, bed spread) and the extras (tons of posters for the wall, girly pink decorations, shelves, chairs, plates and bowls.) Im just sad that I never took a picture of the room.\
It was pretty similar to this room. Just my room was more open and had a multi-color rug and a pink chair. 


2) Kevin bought me a camera for my birthday this year and that was one of the favorite gifts he has ever gotten me and he has given me some great gifts.

30 Days of Truth
Day 15: Something or Someone you Can't Live Without

I would have to say the very generic but TRUE answer of my loved ones. Seriously, they are the reason I wake up every morning and they are who make me happy. Kevin, my family, my "sisters", and all of my close friends. I think life would suck and be very meaningless if you didn't have loved ones in it.
This is many of my loved ones in one picture :) How can you not love that group right there?

Day 16: Someone or Something you Definitely Could (and Should) Live Without

I have two answers for this.... There are people I could live without... I could live without stupid, rude, inconsiderate, or downright mean people. There are "friends" that I have that I ave been trying to "cut off" but who I just don't know how to tell them "I don;t like you and I don't think we should be friends any longer". Its difficult and I just don' t want to be a bitch. I have 3 friends who I would rather not have in my life anymore.
I could also do without animal poop. I wish there was a way we can make them stop going to the bathroom. I am really bad about cleaning out my cats' litter box or cleaning up my dog's poop. It grosses me out and is on the top of the (very long) list of chores I hate to do.

Day 17: A Book You've Read That Changed Your Views

Oooooo this is tough. Hmmm I read Freakenomics and that made me become way more liberal in my economic views. (BTW an important note is that if you are liberal in economics that means you are fiscally conservative, people often get this backwards). 

Also all of the books I had to read during my philosophy class. I forgot the name of them but I never really stopped and thought about things deeply and they made me think. I know reading Confucius and Plato's philosophical teachings have made me think deeper about life and how I treat others. 

I can't think of that ONE book that changed everything. Most of the books I read in college made me change my views but that was because I was able to think on my own and come up with my own political and social views instead of my parents'.

Best Halloween Weekend Ever...Why do weekends have to end?

Hello All!! I had a great weekend and I hope you all did too. Seriously, this was by far one of the best Halloweens I have ever had! I am just so glad that everything went well. I am so happy that I am not even going to pout about the Giants or any other bad sports stuff that happened this weekend (even though really it mostly was good). I cant wait to read about all of your weekends and see costumes :)

Warning:There may be some pictures in one of my recaps that may be PG...This is my warning :)

(Epic) Weekend Recap

Friday: Chill Night
So Friday we went over to Chris and D-lo's (from HumbleAblog) house and had a nice dinner and hang out time with them, Chris and Rosemary (Ro Ro Ro Your Blog), and James . We ordered pizza and watched the Lakers win(!!). We also had fantastic apple cake that D-lo and Chris made. It was delicious and I usually don't like fruit cakes or pies. It was nice to have girl talk with D-lo and Rosemary. All in all it was a chill night, its too bad that we live 20 minutes away because we left earlier than I wanted to because we were getting tired.

Saturday: Halloween Part 1

 Saturday was a crazy busy day. We got a late start and then we laid around  watching TV (me Grey's Anatomy and him Step Brothers). We had a lot of shopping to do for our last minute costumes because thats how we roll. It was a lot of fun going to the mall and shopping with Kevin even if we were a bit grumpy because of hunger (we are like little kids in that way). I might have spent a little bit too much on new makeup :) But hey its the price of beauty right. Then I got little booty shorts, a baseball tee, socks, and black out strips for my costume. Kevin got a button up shirt and a tie for his costume.
At the party we went to Saturday night they had a little photo section set up. Pretty nifty

For Halloween I was a sexy baseball player :) and Kevin was Don Draper from Mad Men (well for Saturday). 

That night we went to a party with our friends, Vero and Carlos (pictured above). It was about 45 minutes away from where we live and we only knew Vero and Carlos but it was still chill and a lot of fun. Except when the crappy band played but luckily the cops shut that down pretty quickly. I liked the party because everyone got really into it and the costumes were fantastic and original. There was some intense dedication like tis one dude shaved half his head for a costume. My camera was of course dead on Saturday so Im waiting for my friend to post the pictures on facebook. We have a really good one with Lady Gaga :) After the party we went to Denny's and then home to pass out at 4 am.

Sunday: Sports Day and Halloween Part 2

So on Sundays I never sleep in because I always forget to fix my fantasy  football teams (which by the way I am doing pretty good in). Anyway I woke up at 7:45 (yay for 3.5 hours of sleep) and fixed my team and then took my dog for a walk in his halloween costume. 
        Funny park story, I ran into these three little kids (probably about 4-6 years old) and they asked "is that a dog?" and the mom told them "yes, he is wearing a lobster costume for Halloween. You know how you wear costumes? Well dogs can too." little kids "Coool!!!" Aww so cute.
PeeWee loved his walk and then I came home got settled in and watched the games and browsed the web while Kevin slept on the couch. Perfect Sunday morning/afternoon for me. 
Kevin may or may not kill me for putting this up. But isnt he adorable with the pink blanket and his jersey? 
Typical Sunday at my place. You have to have at lease two screens to watch the game on. 
Obviously the Chargers listened to my letter to them because they won yesterday. And maybe just maybe if they win out for the rest of the season they might be able to make it to the playoffs (yah don't worry Im not holding my breath). There were quite a few great football games on yesterday and Im glad I got to see them. Oh and then after the Charger game we went and watched Kevin's brother in law play ice hockey at the rink right by our house. It was fun even though they lost and we were bad luck for them (the opposing team won 4-3 and they scored 1 of their goals right when we walked in...his team was up 3-1 when we got there...yah bad luck)
"Sexy" Baseball Player  

Sunday night from 8 pm-12:30 am we were at an AWESOME Halloween party at my hookah lounge. It was super cool. It was me, Kevin, Cathy, her boyfriend David, and Lori. It was a lot of fun...one of the best Halloween parties I ever went to. There was hookah, good music, dancing, and great company. I'll let the pictures tell you the rest :)
Dodger Player (or smurf ;P )
That's right we went matchy for Sunday night 
Just chillaxing and smoking some hookah

Baseball Player and "Scary Pittsburgh fan"

They are so cute. She was Freddy Kruger (she had a hat and the hand) and he was a zombie or something like that

Dance party!! (yah we are dressed hoochie but I wear less at the beach :P)

The boys, up to no good.

The girls...looking hot :) (and Im apparently getting molested as well)
All in All it was a great weekend...Except I pouted like this when the Giants won ;)


How was your weekend? What did you do for Halloween? What were you?

P.S. Sorry about the excess of pictures and the long ass entry. I just dont know how to shut up
