Tuesday Ten

I’m keeping my promise and we are going to keep up with this Tuesday Ten business.

Uno: If you live in Houston, come hang out with me at Tacolandia.

I mean, beer + tacos + me…winning combo. 😉

Dos: I had breakfast with my cousin a few Sunday’s ago. I have a million + one first cousins on my Italian side, but this dude is basically my brother. I’m pretty protective over him b/c he technically is two years younger than me. Long story short: his psycho ex-gf if trying to screw him out of a joint company social media acct. that they share. Plus, she is like 40-something. Not cool. Real mature of her. Are you in 1st grade? I wouldn’t give her that much credit.

Tres: I had a mini heart attack as my fave guitarist of all time has released an album after what seems like a century hiatus and I’m going to see him in concert in November. Here’s some background history: Doyle Brahmall II. His dad was also a famous guitarist and he grew up with Stevie Ray Vaughn in Austin. When Vaughn passed, Brahmall II formed a band called Arc Angels with Vaughn’s Double Trouble duo Tommy Shannon + Chris Layton and another badass guitarist, Charlie Sexton. The group split b/c of drug issues/typical rockstar stuff in the late 90’s. Anyway, my dad raised me on this Tx blues/rock music and I’ve been following Doyle ever since. Should be a rocking good time. See what I did there?

Quattro: Football season (uhhhh pre-season) has begun and I’m already obsessed. It’s definitely the Texas girl in me. I grew up on the Houston Oilers + Dallas Cowboys. I don’t associate with the Texans except for JJ Watt b/c do I really have to explain that one? So, Dallas has a special place in my heart. This crazed, yelling, cursing woman comes out in me and I start yelling at the refs on the t.v. I will invite you over for chili and cornbread and we can watch a game when it’s not sweltering hot outside.

Cinco: Speaking of hot, it’s like a freaking sauna here in Houston. Plus, it’s been raining for what seems like a decade. I have barely seen the outside. It’s a nightmare.

Seis: I keep running into ppl I went to high school with. F.Y.I. this year I will have been out of high school ten years. It’s a strange feeling. It’s kind of like, “oh, hi…I remember when you used to talk shit about me and didn’t even know me, but look at me now” feeling mixed with a “it’s so good to see you” or “it’s so good to see that you are eating your words” feeling. 😉

Siete: I’ve been having headaches associated with drinking too much coffee. But I don’t necessarily want to pop a ton of migraine meds so I have been using lavender oils. Yes, my mom taught me this. Yes, she’s a genius. Yes, this is my hippie side of life. No drugs for me. Unless I’m about to have a child. Then, give me all the meds in the world.

Ocho: I need a freaking vacation, but staycation. Austin is my home away from home, so I am feeling a weekend trip coming up soon. Coupe and I need some down time. Pool + trail hikes + massage + room service is the best medicine.

Nueve: I miss my baby seester. She is a colorodoian (?) or boulderian now and our texts now consist of her asking me for the netflix password.

Diez: I have been drinking decaf americano’s lately so as to avoid too much caffeine intake and it’s a sad, sad, shame.

Tuesday Ten


Today we are starting a new series on the blog called the Tuesday Ten.

Basically, it’s about anything that is on my mind.

Who knows if this will be weekly, because LIFE.

But, let’s just focus on today.

Uno: I was headed to work last Wednesday morning when I realized that my car was missing from my apartment parking garage. Yes, it was stolen. Yes, the police found it.

After seeing it’s condition, I don’t want it back from the body shop.

People suck.

Dos: I have been taking Coupe on long walks during the evening and let’s go over his breed. He is an English Lab. This basically means he is a short, stocky version of an American lab. Do people even do their dog breed research? There are french bulldogs and english bulldogs. So, there are english and american labs. Get it? Big difference. Oh, and if someone asks me if he is a basset hound mix again, I might just exercise my WWE Diva skills.


Tres: No matter how terrible you look, snap chat filters will make you look like you just came from a day at the salon.

Snap chat has your back.


Quattro: I became a Beachbody coach a couple of weeks ago and Shakeology is my life. It’s sooooooo good. I’m also kicking my own ass doing 21 day fix workouts.

Supplemental income is always nice.

Cinco: My current dating situation is lackluster. Please Lord, just send me a tall, sweet, “has his crap together” man who wants a commitment (meaning eventually wants to get married). I’m not talking tomorrow, either.

Seis: I just made an 8 month plan for work/apt lease/where the hell am I going next.

I’m super proud of it.

Siete: I will be 29 in exactly 6 months. I’m not sure if I’m excited or dreading that this is the last year of my 20’s. I mean, I was just in high school last week, right?

Ocho: No matter how old my mother gets, I learn that she never actually ages. This woman can drink me under the table, dance all night long, and run 12 miles on a Saturday because that is so much fun.

Nueve: After 10 years, my mac laptop bit the dust. I got a macbook air. Life is changed. I have the aston martin of laptops and I don’t know how I ever owned something that felt like 10 bricks on my lap.

Diez: I have had a cavity in my mouth for about 6 years and am rescheduling my appt that I have for today for sometime in the near future. What’s a couple more weeks?
