Weekend Recap

I had a very interesting weekend,

I started out the weekend taking the hardest test I have ever encountered, the GMAT. It was a doozy. All in all I will have to take it again, and from what I hear, I won’t be the 1st nor the last to take this path. Ouch, that is the 1st test I have failed miserably like that. I tend to pride myself in my smarts, but this test, well it outsmarted me. I am use to direct questions that have direct answers and this test is far from that, and on top of that it is adaptive, meaning, it adapts to give you a harder or easier question, based on if you get an answer right or wrong.

Cute right?!

Well, after that downer, I decided to regroup, and have a drink :-), a margarita, and go shopping at TJ Maxx. I bought a snazzy new sling purse, and some workout gear. I bought some nice shorts, and a sports bra.. I have an up and coming session with this guy who has a gym in his garage and he trains people in there. This should be fun. #GarageFit is what he calls it. I’m looking for a challenge and a trainer, so why not!

I ended the day by going to the beach with my friends and dog, and it was excellent watching the sun set. My dog also made a new doggie friend, Pepper, and learned that when it comes to food, he might get snapped at. Which is hilarious!

Sunday I slept until about 11ish and some friends called and we went to Kona Grill and did a little shopping at the mall. It was nice! I bought a necklace and a “Tom Boy” sleep set from Forever21. At Kona, the sushi was great as usual, and the Pot Stickers were yummy! I also learned, that I am not much of a drinker anymore. I haven’t drank really until this weekend, and one margarita, and a glass of wine made me very sleepy! I went home and slept for 2 hours straight! My friends called me old! LOL.

I ended my Sunday tweeting about love songs (I was in my feelings lol), watching True Blood, some of the BET awards, and texting a few people.

This week I plan on getting back on my bike, trying out the garage fit stuff, and running a mile to see if my knee is ready for me to hit pavement!

 

How was everyone’s weekend? Anything interesting go on?

 

Memorial Day Weekend Recap

What a great weekend!

It was just what I needed to get away from my normal day to day schedule. Between the heavy demands at work, and my rigid study schedule I needed some downtime. Holidays do just that!

Saturday: The day did NOT start off so well, I went to my beautician and I went for my usual perm and style, but  I wanted to bring back my old hair cut. A Keri Hilson Bang look. She originally gave me that hair cut and it was amazing!

See?! So beautiful!  Looks like my beautician wanted to “experiment on my hair this time and try a new cutting technique. WHY ME LORD? So I ended up with this Dora the Explorer lopsided Beatles edition of  the cut:

5-28-2013 10-54-47 AMI proceeded to freak out…. A LOT!  She tried to blame it on the sides of my hair (WHICH WERE CUT SUPER UNEVEN! BTW) for being too short to recreate the look and that I FORCED her to cut my hair like that. She told me before she began to hack my hair, that I had enough hair. My bangs touched my chin for Christs sake. This is the second time she has hacked my bangs and even though this haircut isn’t that bad (so i have been told) I DON’T F***ing like it! So we will not be going back to her.

The day proceeded to get better when I went to a pool party. 3 cups of wine had me feeling a little better about it!

Sunday: I woke up early and grabbed some things to go to the beach with my dog, sister and friends. We had crawfish and the day could NOT have been more perfect! It was my dog’s 1st time at the beach and he ran all over, got in the water, played fetch to his hearts content. He was so pooped by the end of the day he just fell asleep literally as soon as the car started up. Perfect DAY!

Monday:  I woke up early and spent some QT with Gizzy. Then, I headed off to the pool for some poolside relaxing. I really have a tan now. I made some sangria, bonded with some of my neighbors and went to a GMAT Math bootcamp. The day was superb. You really cannot get more of a perfect weekend than that.

I cannot wait until the next vacation/holiday. It was well needed and well deserved. How was everyone elses holiday? Hopefully fantastic!  This week will be all about working out and studying, my regularly scheduled programming.

My December

My December was fabulous!!! I went with 32 of my family and friends to the Dominican Republic. It was WONDERFUL. I mean it was beyond beautiful and it was the epitome of paradise. I went para-sailing, I went Kayaking  I danced bachata y meringue  took shots of ron! (rum) and enjoyed the Dominican cuisine. My Spanglish really helped me out. They thought I was Dominican and they refused to believe I had no Dominican descent in me. LOL Here are some pictures.

My Sisters and my good Friend and I
