Happy Friday!  My baby Carlton is having a rough day today, so please send good thoughts his way.  He has a patch of fur missing on his little arm and I'm trying to decide if it's something that needs a trip to the vet.  The boys have never been apart before (ever!) so I'm worried about the stress that going to the vet would cause them, but we shall see. 

Here's what fills my heart up today:
  • Had dinner last night with my amazing friend, Squash, and of course had a blast.  We were talking about her wedding plans, and doing the general gossip.  She was pretty devastated that our favorite restaurant didn't have cucumber margaritas AND queso, but it was still a delish meal
  • Rumor has it, my big bro and his wifey are coming to town this weekend.  Hoping to be able to see them and catch up
  • I applied to my dream job a few days ago ... I doubt that I am qualified enough for it, but it is sooo perfect for me.  Fingers crossed!
  • I know I say this every single day (a million times over), but these kitten babies are just terrific.  Love them way too much!
Have a great weekend!

100 Pushups

Ok, so before all you athletic, in-shape folks judge me ... I must initiate this post by explaining that I am so incredibly out of shape.  Several factors come to play in my fatty reasoning.  They are as follows:
  • I have had a membership to a gym since January and can likely count the number of times I've actually worked out there on both hands.  Oops.
  • I like to eat my emotions.  All 100 of them.  Happy?  Ice cream.  Sad?  Pasta.  Excited?  Candy bar.
  • I sit (or lay on the couch ...) alllllll day long for work.  I love watching tv, I sit in front of a computer all day, and I go to bed early.  So sue me.
Anyways, I recently started trying to get better involved in stopping these fatty habits.  Miss Lauren C and I have been going walking recently, and it's so relaxing!  We kinda speed walk, depending upon how heated (ie: disgusting, juicy, or gossipy) the conversation is, so we're actually getting a decent workout in. 

I also recently started participating in this little facebook group called 100 Pushups.  I briefly explained it in Friday's post, and I definitely love the motivation.  I really pushed it on Saturday night and had to finish my last 40 pushups at 2am after coming home from working at the bar (rough!).  Love the motivation factor of holding myself accountable (to these women, other than my friend, that I don't know haha) by recording when I've finished my 100.  I highly recommend it!

In other news, I went grocery shopping and got ice cream, brownie mix, and ham.  Don't worry, I'm still the same Catlady!

Happy Friday, kittens.

Here's what fills my heart up today:
  • Had a amazing, hilarious dinner with one of my old girlfriends last night ... it was super fun to vent, laugh, and drink some delicious margaritas!
  • I took a day off of work today to just relax, mope around, and enjoy this rainy day.  Thus far, exactly what the doctor ordered!  Still have to work tonight, but it's nice to only work one job today
  • My kittens have been so sweet and lovey lately ... Mustacho knows that I'm in a funk and won't leave my side.  He's such a good nurse haha
  • A friend started a facebook group that encourages ppl to do 100 pushups a day, and she is really good about posting her status throughout the day.  I just started yesterday and my arms, back, and chest are feelin the burn!
Please send some prayers to my friend, B ... he's in the hospital and the visiting hours at Union Memorial are terrible :(

Happy Friday, ya'll!!

I have so very much that I'm thankful for this week ... my cup runith over big time.
  • Speaking of cups running over ... I had a LOT to drink last night and I am very thankful that at the moment, I am functioning and not crippled by a margarita and Firefly/lemonade hangover.  Knock on wood.
  • My dear dear friends Pumpkin and Squash are engaged!!  I couldn't be more excited and happy for them ... untillll I was asked to be a bridesmaid!  Ugh I could cry just thinking about it.  I started serving Pumpkin at my bar when he was slightly underage (perhaps like 17, whoops) and he has always been my protector, confidant, and source of sheer entertainment.  I became close with Squash after my two gourds met and I couldn't love her more.  I feel like my little brother and one of my best friends are getting married and I just am absolutely over the moon
  • Squash and I had dinner last night at our favorite Mexican restaurant and of course it was delish
  • I met up with an old friend last night (cue the many more drinks) and it was really fun catching up and joking around
  • I have hated the medicine cabinet in my bathroom since I moved into this apartment in November and they finally replaced it last night--much brighter lights, much more clean, and more space for all my shiz
  • I hung out with my bro and his besty last night until the wee hours of the morning (ok, til like 2am, but for me that is beyondddd past my bedtime).  I haven't seen my brudder in awhile, so it was great catching up and seeing the boys.  Additionally, I paid my brother $5 to drink this disgusting "ChocoVine" (that's right, chocolate wine) that his besty had around "for the ladies" ... of course I didn't just pass him the $5, I made it rain.  On my brother.  Embarrassing.
  • My kitten babies just get more precious by the day and I love love love them way too much!

Happy Friday, kittens!  Here's what fills my heart up this week:
  • Of course, my little kitcats make me the happiest cat mommy in the world
  • A little item called Pinterest has pretty much changed my life (and completely distracts me from work ... oops)
  • Ignore the mess,
    just note the
    cutesy shoes
  • My dearest enabling friend, Miss Lauren C, and I went to a running store in town yesterday.  While I told her that she couldn't let me buy anything, of course I purchased a new pair of running shoes.  The poor fella at the store didn't believe us that we had the same name and was really annoyed by the fact that we preferred pretty shoes over effective ones for running.  Despite the fact that we were surrounded by a ton of very active, very fit children being fitted for new shoes, I wasn't completely discouraged.  Maybe I'll finally start working out?  Did you know that "fitness" shoes aren't supposed to be the same size as your regular shoes?  Apparently I am some monstrous size, but they fit well ... and most importantly, they're pretty dern cute!
  • To that end, I really am trying to make an effort to lose some lbs.  After a bunch of stuff going on in my life, I have most definitely gotten lazy and relied on food way too much for happiness (and I am so not kidding about that, spoken like a true fatty).  I've gained about 8lbs in the past 4 months or so and that makes me kinda sick.  I went over the weight that I said I'd never get up to again, and I'm tired of seeing those numbers!!  And let's get real, I'm tired of my pants not fitting either!  So, on a happy note: what fills me up on this topic is that I may finally be ready to get motivated and start working out.  Huge accomplishment.  We'll see if it lasts!
  • Huge Ravens game coming up on Sunday ... and thus inspires this oh so classy Jam of the Week.  GET IT, BMORE!!!

Happy (almost) bday to Lizzy G!

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner

As you may have read in my post Dear Bargirl, I had a running bet with one of favorite customers regarding his "love" life.  Well, folks, I finally received a text with those 2 beautiful little words "you win" a few days ago.  Booyahhhh!!!

Let me explain that I adore Boy and was very proud of him for making this goal as highlited in our bet.  He tried, and we will attempt a new wager next year.  In the meantime, I will prepare myself for a fun-filled evening of food, booze, and Boy being sober.  Hoorayy hoorahh
