Oh hi Cam Newton.  Welcome to the big leagues.

Happy weekend!

Frustration is over-taking me today.  I comment on one thing and the person emails me like I told them literally to "back the fuck off."  I only politely asked them to stop something.  P-O-L-I-T-E-L-Y.  Like we don't have enough shit to worry about right now besides earthquakes and hurricanes.

In other news I started attempting to train for the 10 miler I have coming up in October.  This weather is making me so cranky.  Thank goodness for dinner with the girls tomorrow night.

DC Quake

By now, the news of the East Coast earthquake has hit pretty much everywhere.  I was home alone, in my 12th floor apartment just sitting on the couch when it hit.  Being a native Californian (and Texan), I've been in some earthquakes, the biggest being the 1994 one in the Valley in CA.  That one was terrifying because I was very young, it was super powerful, and it hit in the early morning hours.  We had lost power and hot water for days.  I remember showering at our neighbor's house because while he also had no power, he did have hot water.  Go figure.

Anyways, yesterday's quake was no joke and even though it's nothing in comparison to what's happened in Japan and CA, it's still really scary.  I'm really happy and very thankful that as of now, nobody was really hurt, there was no major damage, and my friends and family are safe.

Leather Jackets

Today I walked outside and got a reminder that fall is quickly on it's way.  The weather in our area has been unseasonably mild compared to the heat wave that was July.  For the last few years, I've been searching for the perfect fall leather jacket.  I know sometimes they can be super tacky, and look awful, but I'm still on the hunt.

Here are a few I don't hate:

My dude happens to be Russian, and on his request, we watched this new show on Lifetime called Russian Dolls.

It's about these like 6 Russian women in New York City area and they have ridiculous story lines and it's overall an absurd but amazing show.  Highly recommend for anyone who likes the Housewives series or even Jersey Shore, definitely watch it!

Credit Card Fraud

Today as I checked my bank account statement, I realized that someone has been using my card, cleaning out my checking account, spending minimum $150 at each place.  FML.

On a sidenote, last night I made a delicious meal from the cookbook my dude bought me.  Parmesan and Herb Crusted Beef Roast, and it actually turned out pretty good.  I wish I had pictures, maybe next time.  I got a total of 4 cookbooks from him, and I've been going through them, dog-earing the pages with delicious sounding recipes.  I look forward to trying them out, hopefully 1 new recipe a week.

Sorority Wars

While I was in a sorority in college, I admit that our school definitely had a different feel and process than like, large state schools.  That doesn't deter me from being obsessed with every sorority movie or show ever produced.

That brings me to Sorority Wars.  A Lifetime made for tv movie, starring Lucy Hale (aka Aria from Pretty Little Liars) and Amanda Schull (aka Jody from Center Stage).  It's not that great, but I love it.

Nick and Vanessa's Dream Wedding

I watched this today.  I watched Nick marry Jessica many years back, and I LOVE wedding shows, so of course I'd watch.  In general I like him, and I thought I'd like her.  I admit, in this show, she drove me crazy.  So whiney.  Weirdly enough, they were cute together and he seemed to compliment her so well.  He knew exactly when and how to calm her down.  I love that.

TV Marathons

Today is Jersey Shore season 3.  I still love this show and I'm so excited to see Italy get smushed.

A few weeks ago, I saw Friends with Benefits.

I must admit, I didn't love it.  I loved Mila and Justin together, but for some reason I was just expecting more.

I didn't shop today....well at least not for clothing.  Yay!

I Promise I'll Be Better

I have honestly just been too busy and didn't feel like writing much.  Things I've done in the past 3 months:

River Tubing
Finished up my latest work contract
Found a new contract
Went to AZ for my cousin's wedding
Went to 4 baseball games
Took my car into the dealership 3 times
Gold Cup
Saw Friends with Benefits
Saw Bridesmaids
Vacationed in Riviera Maya
Went to Colombia
Visited Boston
Was given a stuffed lobster.  I love that lobster.

Oh, and I shopped.......a lot.  I did a lot of little stuff in there too, but that's the bulk of it.  Speaking of shopping, today I bought the cutest pair of flowery wedges from DSW.  It was raining, I figured shoes were in order. 8 days, I get to see this man again(even though I'm deeply saddened by his recent nuptials):
