Just Thursday

30 Sep

It’s Just Thursday with Murdock’s Mama! If you wanna be cool and join in, link up at her site:

Outside my window… we’re all soooo excited in Cancun! For the first time in a long time, we have minimal clouds 🙂 Welcome back, sunshine!

The time is… 9:53 am

Today I feel… a little overwhelmed with things to do at work, but there’s no rush, so I’m good!

I am thinking… that I wish I were either still in bed, or at the beach!!

At the moment, I am thankful… for a free trip to Las Vegas next week! My oldest sister is getting married 🙂 It’s going to be AWESOME.

I am going… to eat fish tacos today!! Wooo!

I am wearing… new earrings! Jorge is selling this really nice catalogue jewelry, and yesterday I got 2 new pairs 🙂 Look, they’re little rain clouds! How cute is that?

I wish… that the world would protect its natural resources more. Shame.

I am reading… Book of the Dead by Patricia Cornwell (months later… I know, I know)

I am working on… learning to cook! I’ve already perfected mushroom quesadillas, guacamole, zucchini with feta, caesar salad and grilled cheese with tomato. Nothin amazing, but dang, it all tastes good.

I am hoping… to buy a house in a year.

I am hearing… my boss talk about his trip to Cuba. I’m jealous!

I bet you didn’t know… that Barack Obama was five minutes from the house where I grew up yesterday, giving a conference 🙂 I still can’t get over that. I’m easily impressed.

One of my favorite… restaurants is PF Chang’s. I could really go for some lettuce wraps right now. Really wish they would open one in Cancun. *drool*

Weekend plans…

Thursday: get-together with some Cancun bloggers!! Yay! Followed by a going away party for a friend who’s going to study a month in Madrid 🙂

Friday: Jorge’s soccer match in the evening, followed by dinner somewhere with the team

Saturday: No idea

Sunday: Probably doing laundry and catching up on Season 2 of Glee (Don’t tell me anything! I haven’t seen anything yet!)

    I am very, very jealous of your minimal clouds. We are getting up to 6 inches of rain today from that tropical storm. Please send me some sunshine!

    I didn’t know the Vegas trip was free. I mean, somebody is paying for it.

      Well… free for me. Kind of. Thanks, Mommy and Daddy!

      Really? Who’s paying? We missed that memo.

    I love Vegas .. so much fun! And I actually win money there! Not big amounts (the most was $300) I was happy! Fish tacos .. yum-yum. I found a Mexican restaurant here that makes good ones. (actually owned by a Mexican with a Mex cook)

    Those recipes all sound so good. Have fun in Vegas!

    Ha ha ha! I know how you feel about taking months to read a book. I just finished Eat, Pray Love. I flew thru the Eat part in less than 2 days. But I got stuck on the Pray part for almost 3 weeks! Thankfully, I made it thru and finished the Love part in a day.

    Love the cute earrings! All my teenage niece talks about is how “fashion” the NICE catalogue is! 😉

    I have a recipe for the chicken lettuce wraps if you want it. It’s not exactly the same, but it’s really daggon close.
