52 Weeks ( Picture This )

Week 29:  ( picture this )


Ladies, listen up.  Imagine going into a store with all the purses and handbags you have dreamed of, baubles, jewelry and the what nots just waiting to be had.  Well. I present Sam Moon.  This store is amazing, things that dazzle and sparkle so bright; you need shades and a bigger basket to haul your load.  Indeed,  when I walked through the doors my eyes glazed over.  Very affordable, if there happens to be a Sam moon in your part of the world, I highly suggest you stop by.  😉

Day 130:

Today I am…  Kickin’ it!  That is right friends, and readers, today I got a new pair of kicks.  My feet feel really free of aches.  Picture below.



I plan on getting a back-up pair as well.  I got these at the Barton Creek Payless.  Oh yes, that good old Barton Creek Mall.  My mom loves to go there when she is in town, so we had to stop on by.  She found some good deals on some blouses, and got some make-up, she has been splurging as well, while down here.  It is so good to see her smile.

Now tomorrow we will be going downtown to the Capitol.  And I am also taking her to Toy Joy.  Didn’t eat at any place new today, she wanted her favorite asian food at the food court, so it was all good.  She finally, saw some of UT  and was amazed how big and spread out it is.  So having mucho fun with my mom.

Well my friends and loyal reader’s I am also celebrating my 1 year anniversary of blogging on this blog.  Happy anniversary to me!  Many, many, many more blogs to come.  And I hope that you all will continue to tune into this blog of mine.

Today I am…  Kickin’ it!

Day 129:

Today I am…  Splurging.  Yes, while my mom is here, I am splurging on treating her to new eats and plenty of shopping, of course she is shopping up a breeze.  She bought plenty of money to go shopping with, and I am treating her to restaurants and places to eat.  Plus seeing different sights around Austin.  Today’s eating spree was to Carino’s Italian restaurant.  I’ve never even been to the one in San Angelo, so figured it was time to hit it up, and hit it up we did.  She got the Lobster Ravioli, lemon creme cake, chedder broccoli, I got the chicken ravioli, tirimisu, and chedder broccoli, it was delicious, so very delicious.  Tomorrow is another day of splurging.  This week has been good, and it’s not over yet.  So to good company, family, and yummy food.

Today I am…  Splurging.

Day 99:

Today I am…  Taking a look.  Yes, I am in my closet and taking a look at the drabby clothing I have, either outgrown, or they just do not fit right.  I haven’t been shopping for clothing in a couple of years, so I am thinking that it is about time I lay down some money and pick up a few new threads.  I do not want to go over board, because I am just getting back into my walking routine, and well that changes my body, so I think that I will wait a few more weeks, then go shopping bit by bit, and all these other clothing…  I will just donate to good will.  Indeed, indeed.

Today I am…  Taking a look.

Day 88:

Today I am…  Up and Down.  Yes,  what I mean about that is the up part of me is up because I just looked at the new schedule I got  and I will be working mornings, sure it’s only six-hour shifts, but they also call people to work late at times, and I can always adjust and work past my afternoon shift.  It makes me smile, but the down part of me is down because I will be working all week-long.  My only day off is next Sunday, so even though during the week of working, I could go down town for a little bit to see some of south by, to me it is not worth the hassle, I would have loved to spend a whole day enjoying it.  So I can truly say that This year for festivals have been out for me, and I won’t get to see it.  Ho hum.  Life goes on lol.

There is always next year, and who knows what next year really holds for me.  Stay tuned.  Today has already been a great day, spent it with my mom, we went back over to Sam Moon, where she indulged herself once again with rings, and purses.  Then we had lunch at the Souper Salad.  It was very good, like I have said, one mission for me is to try different eateries around Austin, and I am well on my way, and I am indulging my mom in it as well.  Sorry, no photos this time around, but the next eatery I will try to remember to snap some photos, for here, my Facebook and my instagram.

I also picked up the new Hunger Games:  Catching Fire dvd, so today has been pretty productive, even though it never really got too sunny outside.  I do hear that next week will be a bright, sunny, spring kind of day, I welcome it very much of course.  So until the next blog my friends, enjoy your weekend.  And to the Austinites who will be attending any of the SXSW festivities, keep it safe, fun, and take plenty of photos.

Today I am…  Up and Down.

Oh Rah rah rah rah rah GAGA

So let the rambunctious raucous, drunken debauchery commence.  Today is the start of South By South West, or South by as austinites call it.  It gets kicked off with the interactive part, film and then next week starts the best part, which would be the music part, of course I am not sure what is truly best about it, since I’ve never been, and without badges or wristbands, you don’t get to get in to see those world-class musician, but then again, do you really want to be?  I think the best would just be to stick to the freebies and enjoy yourself, so if I happen to be able to make it to a day of music I will post how it all turned out.  Stay tuned.

In the news today, it seems as though Lady Gaga will be playing south by, the city denied her a permit to play on the dorito’s sound stage, but did that stop her or Doritos, nope.  They just moved it to Stubbs’ now she will be performing there.  I find her tunes catchy, and yes, you will find me humming along to some even singing some, but she’s not someone I really care for, and definitely not gaga over her.  As long as I am not swept up in the hordes of minions I think I will be fine.  I will definitely try to stay away from that area lol.

Well up and getting ready for the day, it will be filled with shopping with mom, going to go back down to Sam Moon.  So enjoy your Friday, and keep it safe as well.

It’s Official

I did well on the assessment and I am now an official employee of interactions.  I do not work this weekend, but will start next.  I did well.  I felt I was going to do well, and all my other classmates did well also, we all passed our assessments.  Of course I was not worried about it one bit, I knew, just had that feeling that all was going to be fine.  Just now have to get fingerprinted for the job, and the rest is pretty much history.

I have work tomorrow morning at party city, then Sunday will be my last day working there.  Ah, will finally get a sit down job, will be off my feet and out of the public eye.  New year, new ventures, it’s all good.

Today has been a beautiful sunny day, after training, me and my mom went to the shops at the arbor, and I introduced her to Sam Moon, she went into overload.  The next time she comes down, I know exactly where we will be going.  Then we stopped and ate at Pot belly sandwich.  It was a first for both of us, and we enjoyed it very much.  Yes, this trying new places to eat is fun, fun, fun on a bun.

Well time to disperse all this happiness, and get in a movie before I head off to bed.  Keep it fun and safe friends and readers.

Day 67:

Today I am…  Ready for the day.  I am up and fully awake this morning, I mean really awake.  I am having breakfast and listening to Chip Ingram, while my mom is asleep in the bedroom.  Today is the last day of our training, and we get our assessments and then more lectures on what is what, then find out what our schedules will be.  I am pretty excited.  Stay tuned.  Then finally going to get around to taking my mom to Sam Moon, and the other shopping centers at the shops at the arbor.  This should be really fun today.  Oh yes, can you believe it is Valentine’s Day already.  Oh ho-hum really.  The truth is, that I am glad that I have so much going on, it does take my mind off of not having valentines to spend and do all those things for.  For me, today will be just another day, a day of enjoying with my mom.  Oh that day will come, when I am not longing for that valentines’ love.  But until then, life goes on, and at the moment it is just another day, filled with sweet treats, and flowers lol.  Here’s to your Valentine’s Day…  May it be filled with bears, hearts, balloons, and plenty of chocolates.  Also take time to tell your loved ones, how much they mean to you, and how much you appreciate them.

So my friends, time to get ready to get out and be fabulous.  Enjoy your day where ever you are.

Today I am…  Ready for the day.

Adventures in Deborahland

Today was such a beautiful day, so I went down to the Shops at the arbor walk, I went to Sam Moon trading co.  Oh my mom is going to love this store, she will be coming down next week, so we are going to go there and this store is going to wow her, I know what she likes, and she will like this store.  I also went to this place called Tootie’s Pie co.  I ordered the lemon velvet pie, it was pretty good, very lemony, and not overly sweet.  I would definitely try their pies again.

Then I went to Mighty Fine Burgers and shakes, decided to try it out.  Well the only thing I really liked about this is… The Strawberry Lemonade.  I don’t know about the shakes, since I didn’t order any, but I might go back and order one, just to make sure.  The burger on the other hand, well I didn’t care for it.  I got the cheeseburger, with everything on it.  I found it overly oniony, and really I was not impressed.  So no on the burgers,  but yes on the Strawberry Lemonade, and perhaps I may enjoy their shakes.  To be continued.

Well tomorrow it is back to work, so I am going to enjoy the rest of my evening with a bit of coffee and Netflix.  Hope you will enjoy yours as well.

The hub…

It would seem that I am at the hub of things where I live, OK, maybe not at the exact center hub, but I am in a pretty good spot.  I have a bus route that gets me to the hubs, I can walk to the rail station, and to stores around me, I am in a pretty decent place, there is a call center that I have been trying to get on with that is practically down the street, I keep on keeping on with things.  I can feel it my friends, and readers, I can feel that employment is coming this month.  Well enough about work and employment and all that jazz.

Let’s talk about the dreaded heat!  Yes!  I am burning up, I swear I am trying not to run the AC too much, I have a fantastic fan/ utility blower that does wonders as well, I have the ceiling fans on 24/7, but sometimes It does call for the Ac to be turned on.  I got my electric bill the other day, hmm…  But the rents are giving me the money to pay for it.  It really isn’t that bad at all though, I am sure next months will be a lot less, due to the fact that the deposit was the high point with this months bill.  I am loving my apartment, even though I still don’t have furniture and I am using the inflatable bed as a couch lol.  But once I get going, then sofa, and bed will be mine, and I can really start decorating the way I want my cozy little apartment to be.  Life is very good, so very good, God is so very good to me!

So been taking some photos, just a new photo of Moi, hope you enjoy friends.



Mom is coming in this Saturday, happy, happy me, we will be going shopping for food stuff to fill the fridge and pantry, plus she is bringing me stuff down, so it’s all good.  She is bringing me some movies also, the first and second season’s of Justified, and perhaps I can get her to buy me the third season for prosperity lol.  along with some other movies she has.  Anyway, life is chugging along.  Enjoying the ATX tremendously.  But need to head back home, Oy!!  It is supposed to be 106 today, I have to get back before I melt into a puddle of sweetness.  Toodles readers, enjoy yourselves.
