 He can do math. And so can Siri. :)

Happy weekend!

i'm alive!

As previously stated by many, many teachers and students, school has begun! And I made the mistake of incorporating new routines into my life at the same time...which is why things have been slow in eeenternet land. :)

Along with my day job starting up this week and roller derby practice, I purchased a Living Social deal for a few Crossfit classes. I need to up my game after being away all summer, and I have been a tad curious about what this whole Crossfit movement is about.

Needless to say, I'm tired. This long weekend couldn't have come at a better time.

Necklace: Reigruche Studio
Bracelet: custom order by my cousin!

What have you been up to?

Paris Day 5

 Although I'd be about 20 pounds heavier, I do miss the simplicity of a French breakfast.
Coffee, croissant, and orange juice. And I don't even like orange juice. :)


 A friend [and foodie/perez-hilton-of-sorts] of mine highly recommended this place. Their famous macarons were delicious!
But I will always be a chocolate kinda gal. :)

 Day 5 was pretty low key. We walked around a LOT. And climbed plenty of stairs...but didn't have any set plans until that evening when we did the Eiffel Tower night tour.

And thanks to everyone that helped me identify this fruit.
I really want to try them!

p.s. Today is the first day of school! Good luck everyone!

Friday, August 24, 2012 a boss.

 Last weekend Houston Roller Derby had their monthly bout. I jammed on the Bosses for the first time! It was extremely exciting. Until I had to jam for the 2nd time. [haha] Gotta get back in shape, dude!
BUT my team voted me "Breakthrough Star," which completely made my night. Oh, that and winning for the first time this season. :)

 For some reason I thought it'd be a good idea to attend a pedal party the day after my bout. Needless to say, my legs were all screwed up for a couple days. haha

 Back-to-School e-shopping! :)
Including Stitchfix, Shoemint, and Minnetonka!

  Kinda cool thing. On the first day back to work, A) I was awarded the "Golden Eagle Leader Award." Yay math! And B) there were ex-students roaming the building! And by roaming I mean they were assisting teachers with classroom set-up.
It was so great to see their lovely faces. :)
I stole this photo from her instagram account. Click photo go enlarge...and read caption. :)

 Daniel and I spent our last free night for a long time at Movies in the Park at Miller Outdoor Theater.
Pretty and Pink. It was nice. :)

Also! Not sure if you've noticed the updated ad up to the right. FEISTY30 gets you 30% off your INPINK order. Sweet, eh?? Just in time for some back-to-school e-shopping, right? ;)

not so much a what i wore

My apologies for the lack of posts and photographs this week! Work started back fo' reals on Monday and I am just a *bit* overwhelmed.

I also had a bout last weekend and we won! But since I have been away so often [Miami and Paris] I am going to need to step it up to get back into shape.

Anyway, I hope all is well in your world. Teachers and students, hope your year starts off right?

Oh, and if anyone feels the need to do some back to school shopping...I updated the Goodsie shop recently. Nice things for nice prices.
