And Then We Added 1

One year that is. 
Don't get too excited or jump to any conclusions now! 

It's my birthday today. 
The big 24. It kinda feels like 23 to be honest. 
But maybe that's because it falls on a Monday. 
Don't you think birthdays should skip Mondays? 
I do. 

My lovely sister made me a carmel cappacino this morning. 
It helped me wake up. 

Then when I got to work I had a fun card from my coworkers and a amazingly sweet card from my friend Anne. Who also supplied my favorite snacks as well as other goodies.

My birthday dinner was amazingly delicious. 
Mahi, rice, and fresh asparagus. 
I may have had some issues and choked on the part of the asparagus. 

And then it was dessert time. 
Can you say a Cannoli cake from Whole Foods Bakery!
Doesn't that sound delicious!?!?! 
Jayden wanted all the mini chocolate chips on top. 

It was really really good. 
Do you see the size of that piece?

The leftovers are going to work so Keiki and I don't go into a sugar coma.
Especially considering she also bought other desserts from the Whole Foods Bakery. 

I'm telling you people. If you have one nearby you MUST go. But not if you plan to diet. Then its a bad bad bad idea. 

But yay! 
Happy Birthday to me!

Shellac Manicure Update

It's day 10 of having my shellac manicure on and today my opinion dropped a bit.

This morning half the polish came off on one of my nails! So sad! I had some chips that were bugging me already. (apparently I can be a bit of a perfectionist) But I was impressed with how well it looked after doing dishes daily, cleaning a bathroom, and just normal life.

I bought the polish they used with my pedicure which matches so I touched it up myself. But there's a difference if you look close and it still kinda feels like I'll catch it on something and the rest will come off. I just need it to last until Saturday then I don't care.

I don't know if it was the salon I went to, since my pedicure has not lasts well at all, how much I did, or of my nails just don't like polish. I've seen other people have it last longer.

Well that's my quick update. I haven't decided if I'm completely against shellac now or if it was still nice. I'll tell you this weekend.

Instagram Catch-Up

I haven't posted in awhile and it was a busy week/weekend. 
But I did document it all with Instagram. 

Have you seen these in your grocery store. I know carmel dip is more common but if you find these with the cinnamon dip get them. So delicious and only 60 calories or maybe 90 I had to many fun snack packs this week. 

Then my sister ruined my plans to eat healthy and good all week by bringing me a mini vanilla creme brûlée. It was seriously delicious and I must must learn how to make this at home. Do you know that means a torch? That would be fun. :D

Did you know Starbucks had this deal on their bags?? I didn't until this week. I have missed out on so many free coffees. Sad sad times....

We had a party at work this week. One of my coworkers always gets this certain spinach artichoke dip from Costco. It is amazing, delicious, and I love love love it!!! I ate way to much of it to be perfectly honest. 

Apparently a lot of this week focused on food....
I had taco bell on Friday for the first time in quite a while. It wasn't great but I still love the sauce packets.

Saturday it was all about Team Bride. (Awesome cup and we had bracelets!!!) My lovely friend Anne is getting hitched in Vegas this week so we had a spa day Saturday morning that involved manicures and pedicures. So lovely....

I haven't had color on my finger nails in years. This was my first shellac manicure and so far I really really like it. The color isn't black like it looks in the picture. It is OPI Russian Navy and I really love the color. I will let you know how the shellac keeps up for the allotted 14 days. 

The brides and I's nails. There was another girl but our last stop got cancelled so we didn't get the pic. 

And the freshly pedicured toes. Oh pedicures...I missed you much.

We had a Easter concert at church this week. It went great and the artist Sean C. did an amazing job. It really spoke to me and I was so glad some of my friends could come. 

I made a return to TJ Maxx on Monday and while I waited in line they caught me with their candles by the check outs. This citrus cilantro candle smelled amazing and I just couldn't resist. I've never seen this Maison brand and I'm very impressed so far.

Quote of the Day

This quote was found on a friends Facebook status. 
I don't know who said it but I like it. 

"If God were concerned about His reputation, He would not have chosen someone like me to represent Him in the first place. And if He were pursuing popularity, He would not have allowed Himself to be hung naked between two thieves on a cross."

Best Corny Movie Ever

Do you have a favorite corny movie? 

I do. I know it's corny but I love it anyway.
I quote it with my sister who loves it as well. 
But I've found very few other people have seen it or loved it. 
Which made my quote pass by unnoticed the other day even though I thought it was hilarious. 

This is my favorite corny movie. 
This is the blurb online: "Two Asian-American "surfer-dude" brothers discover they are the long lost princes from a China Sea Island. Park of their inheritance are magically-induced martial arts prowess. Using their new powers they act to overthrow the island's current dictator, a despotic madman."

If you haven't seen it I say watch it even though you probably won't appreciate it the way I do. 
I first saw it when I was in junior high and then went through a summer in high school where my best friend and I watched it every time we were together. (That was a lot) 

When my movie line fell on deaf ears at work I immediately text my sister so she could laugh with me. Which also prompted a random movie line night later on. 
You know sitting there saying lines from movies you love that just make you laugh.

It was fun. 
Can you name the movie? 

"That's a nice boulder...." 

"A llama? He's supposed to be dead!!!"

"Cause everybody knows that money can't buy knives!"
