Catching Up

There have been a lot of things I’ve wanted to write about lately but I can’t seem to find the time to do it. So instead of writing a bunch of blogs about past stuff, I thought I’d give you the abridged version.

1. I went out with the girls the other night. Ok, it was two weeks ago. The point here is that I got dressed up and looked all civilized and whatnot.


If you can’t find me, just follow the ass in from the left.

I can’t tell you how many test pictures Kate (on the bottom right) took and she never said anything. How can you not see an ass full of ruffles sticking out? I’m calling conspiracy.

2. Last week, I went to see One Republic with the hubs and the bestie.


I’ve never heard of their opener, Mayer Hawthorne, but they were literally one of the worst bands I’ve ever seen live. Just terrible, terrible music that made you question if you should stay for the main act. And life. They made you question life.

The night significantly improved when One Republic took stage. I’m not a fan of them, but the bestie is and it’s important to support the besties.


The concert was on a Monday night, which I reserve solely for sitting on the couch and being depressed I have to work four more days until another weekend. So you know I love her if I change up that schedule.

3.  Last week, hubs and I also went to see Wolfgang Gartner. (I can hear the collective “who?” right now.) He’s a techno DJ that hubs loves. Get ready for a picture that is going to make you feel 82% older.


Yeah, it was like that. But there was lots of good people watching, like that guy in plaid at the front of the stage with both arms up. You know you’re old when you’re watching him jump up and down for two hours and thinking, “Man, I bet he gets to eat whatever he wants with all that exercise!”

4. The Wolfgang Gartner show was at a club called Roxy that’s about 15 minutes from my house. There was a letter out on their sign…


I can’t make that stuff up.

5. I love this picture of hubs so I thought I’d share.


What’s the first thing you look for in a partner? I look at teeth first. Man, I love a good set of pearly whites. I’m mesmerized by hub’s teeth. When an old middle school friend saw a picture of us for the first time, she said, “I knew you’d marry someone with good teeth.” So apparently this has been my thing for a long time.

6. It only took until August, but I made something that wasn’t cooked in the microwave this year.


That’s a ground turkey, onion, and squash stuffed pepper with salsa and goat cheese. It was really good. When hubs told me he thought it needed more salt, I pretended to hear, “This is the best thing I’ve ever eaten and nothing compares to it.” So, all is well.

7. Hamsters eat with one hand and it’s adorable.


8. These just don’t get old for me.

Hey girl

9. I’m still running. I’ve only been doing 4-5 milers but I’m ready to start adding mileage on the weekends. I found a training plan on the back of an old flyer for the Orlando half marathon, so I might as well follow it this year since I’m running the race again and didn’t sign up for my running group.


That schedule is super close to what I do now except I cross train on Friday’s instead of rest and I do my long run on Saturday or Sunday depending on what I have going on over the weekend (i.e., when the booze flows). Since I’m doing 5-milers already, I’m a month ahead for the weekend mileage, so I’ll probably end up getting more longer runs in than what’s scheduled.

10. Did anyone see the True Blood finale last night? Man, that whole season was a real stinker.

Low quality shit

The Lilith storyline was a bust when it had some serious potential, Warlow was a lame character that was supposed to be super powerful but wasn’t, and there was barely any Lafayette all season. He can talk to the dead now, surely you can insert him into the storyline more. The show didn’t get good until the last half hour. So, 30 minutes of 13 hours of programming were good. I’m pushing that show from “orders HBO every year for it” to “Netflix when I have time.” Don’t think I didn’t appreciate the full frontal from Eric, though. Because I did.      A lot.

  1. Glad you caught a picture of that guy! He definitely looked like he was having an amazing time!
    And, your hamster is so cute! Even if he looks a bit like a rat…a cute one. 🙂
    Oooh, #8 is good. So good.
    Lastly, you look great in all these pics! 🙂

      He does look like a rat with that long nose. Fabian keeps telling me to quit calling him ugly to his face but I think that proves that it’s unconditional love. I bought him even though he is fug. 🙂

  2. Melissa

    Your life is 87% more interesting than mine. In other news, I am apparently pathetic.

  3. Aww look at FF’s beautiful teeth. He always looks so happy in pictures! What a little muffin. If he was in my presence right now I would pinch his cheeks. And then get him drunk.
    You and your bestie are totally the American edition of me and my bestie! Pretty sure we need to have a group bestie date.

    I haven’t watched this season of True Blood yet and I have heard next to nothing about it, so I had a feeling it wasn’t the greatest. I am really disappointed to hear that about Lafayette, he’s my fave!

    • Paula

      He would enjoy that. He would enjoy that a lot.

      We totally need a group bestie date! OMG, we should come up with a newlywed type game but it will be for how well we know our best friends! I write yours and you write mine. Then we all go to a bar together (because that’s needed) and see how many we get right!

    I used to love True Blood but stopped watching it a couple of seasons ago, it just got too far out there for me (I know it is was already out there but it just went to this whole other level). Full frontal of Eric you say…. Hmmmmm I just might need to watch that episode.

    • Paula

      I don’t mind the out there part, but it needs to be good too. It’s still worth watching but not worth getting HBO, that’s for sure. Definitely watch the episode for the freeze frame action alone. 🙂

    Sad to say but I can only watch True Blood to make fun of it’s ridiculousness anymore. The writers have gone back and forth on the storylines too many times. I do still enjoy the gratuitous shots of Jason, Eric, Alcide and all the other hot males characters.
    Your hamster is cracking me up. So cute!

  6. Oh the Roxy….lot’s of interesting memories there in the late 90’s into 2000. Now I feel old! #6 looks awesome, we will definitely be making it!! And if we ever run into you and the hubs some time, let’s make a deal that I won’t judge you on the BBQ if you don’t on my teeth. haha

    • Paula

      But do you feel 82% older? haha We used to go to fight night there a long time ago. They really fixed up the place since then.

      • We went for the fight nights too and then would end up back there on Friday because one of us would win the early happy hour for unlimited amount of friends. Those were usually trouble. 🙂

  7. Wooo running. I don’t think I ever emailed you back about this Sunday – but yes, let’s do it. 6 miles!!

    You and Lisa look so cute in that picture together, by the way 🙂

  8. LoriV.

    I’m going to One Republic next month. Sarah Bareilles the opener. I think I’m glad about that after reading this post. 😉

  9. ok one handed hamster eating is adorable!
    And your ruffle ass is hilarious and that picture is just cute in general.
    And also, I think I love you as a blonde.

    • Paula

      Thank you! I usually go dark in the winter (if that’s what you want to call it in Florida) and then I take all year to lighten it up again. It’s a vicious circle.

  10. Thank God for your directions regarding following that ass in. I never would have located you otherwise!

  11. cathy

    I am easily amused, but you had me laughing! Thankyou, I am in tuned and love the sarcasm!
