Where the hell...

Where the hell have I been...

Well what happend was...

I’m working 7 days a week. I had to switch my normal work schedule so I work 10 hour days Monday through Thursday and then I work for my externship Friday through Sunday. I have NO free time… I haven’t had time to put on one pretty dress, or glittery makeup in two weeks. I smell like buttercream all the time!! (which is not a bad thing, until dogs and small children start following you.)

When I was in school I was stressed and occupied Monday through Friday, but I had all weekend to relax, not so much anymore. Plus my externship ends on the 4th of November and we get married on the 19th, so I am trying to figure out how I am going to get everything accomplished during my limited time. The good thing is how much the boy has stepped up to make things EASIER for me. I mean from doing laundry, grocery shopping, and cooking dinner (Now if I could only get him to bathe the dog..HINT..HINT!!). It fills my heart to know I have someone who is willing to fill in, to ease my mind.

I guess I kind of Love this kid!

Weekend Recap...

So the shoes I am wearing in the pic, I got them from Target.  I purchased the brown ones when they first came out, because wanted to start wearing more wedges and they were super comfortable, and a steal at 30 bucks.  Well I was doing my weekly Target trip when I saw the black ones and guess what they were on clearance for 13 bucks.  HOW FRUSTRASTING!!  Don’t you hate that, I know if I would have waited for the shoes to go on sale they wouldn’t had my size, but I start to look and they have like 20 pair of both the black and brown on sale in my size…I swear Shopping…LOL

(I can't believe how dark my arms have gotten from the rest of my body...LOL)

It’s over…finally; no more class and guess what…I MISS IT!! It hasn’t been one day yet and I am already missing, the stress, the lack of sleep, the deadlines (yes, I know I am CRAZY). The last day of class was so much fun, my final project was crepe suzettes,we had pot luck and said our goodbyes. We even signed our jackets, it felt like 6th grade all over again ( Later that night we went out for drinks and I got pretty TIPSY on mimosas…I swear wine and champagne can kick my butt harder than tequila.)

My externship starts on Friday and over the weekend I got called for an interview  at a local cupcake place, so things are looking up!!
The weekend was spent like always, good food, great laughs and movies. We went and saw “Cowboys and Aliens”. I should have listened to the advice I was told and stayed home. I was bored within the first 15 mins of the movie and had to keep pinching myself to stay awake. The movie wasn’t horrible; it just wasn’t worth the 20 bucks we spent on movie tickets. I will never stray from your advice, girlie!! During the trailers we saw a preview for “Scarface”, when I leaned over to the boy and said I’ve never seen this movie, I got the dirtiest look EVER. I guess I am the only person in the ENTIRE WORLD (according to his statistics) that has never seen this movie. So guess what I am doing tonight, being schooled on how to be a drug king pin…oh the joys of free time.

I’ve also decided to get my butt into gear and set some real goals on getting Dollface Delights back into order. I want to do some rebranding, get a new website and marketing material, update the blog and advertise…advertise. I am setting weekly goals for myself so by time I am done with my externship I will be up and running! 

I'm pretty excited!

You know it’s True Love

When you can come home close to midnight, STRESSED out being a TOTAL BITCH, demanding nachos, giving out bad directions to the place for said nachos, then not wanting to share the nachos, falling asleep and hogging all of the covers, waking up at the crack of dawn and DEMANDING the heating pad and you still make sure to tell me how much you love me and kiss my forehead.

I can’t wait to be your official Misses!

Weekend Recap...

 I had way more pictures that I wanted to post, but my computer was acting CRAZY and I got tired of waiting around for it to act right.  So as usual the weekend went by super fast, realized I had my 2nd dress fitting on Saturday at the last minute and for various reasons had to reschedule.   I am excited to see the progress on the dress, especially since our wedding date is creeping on us quickly.  We've kind of had this attitude of not making a big deal of plans, because our wedding is so small, but I know its going to be a few weeks before the day and were going to be running around like chickens with our heads cut off. 

Made the yummiest crepes (okay I made the batter, after burning about 10, gave up and let the boy take over, I will admit me and any type of Pancake is a burnt disaster!) with vanilla bean pastry cream and summer berry sauce…so yummy!

Had black hair again for the weekend, with a pop of color.

(Ya, I have totally formed a GIRL CRUSH)

 We are in finals this week, which is actually not that hard.  I don’t know if it’s because I consider myself a professional student, but I am not stressing at all.  Basically were being required to make a few items each night of things we have made over the course of our program.  Some of my classmates have been FREAKING out, but I had to bring them back to reality, its MUFFINS not the LSATS…LOL 

Would you believe I am actually thinking about going back to school, I would love to find another culinary school that goes more in depth with French pastries.  The closest thing I have come across is located in Chicago. 

We checked out a food trailer over the weekend, it was pretty snazzy and at a very reasonable price.  After looking at it and thinking on it, I am even more confused as to what I want to do.  Culinary school has taught me so much (minus crepes) and I really want to make sure I showcase that in my business.   It would be nice to find a mentor who could guide me in the right direction.  My biggest fear is not making good choices, and I will be the first one to admit my focus is not the greatest.  Having someone there to answer questions and such, would be AMAZING!

No movies this weekend, instead it was laundry. (Damn that need for clean clothes)

Only 1 more week left of school and I am totally doing this.  Think it would be perfect with my blue hair!

Things I am currently loving...

The Japanese really know how to keep things fun and interesting. There are so many subcultures and trends that they comfortably wear out in the open, and I think that is the coolest thing EVER. Right now my favorite is the Sweet Lolita trend, I love the hair and makeup, it looks like so much fun.   I mean look at this adorable dress.

Click here to learn more about the trend.

I won't lie I've played the hell out of these two songs!!

(I can't even grasp the concept of getting a tattoo on my eye lid...OUCH!)

I've loved Raven Symone since the Cosby show and her new show is SO FUNNY!!  Its very rare I get the time to sit down and watch TV, but since this show has been on I make sureits always on the DV-R.  Plus she looks amazing, not that she didn't look good curvier. 

I have no earthly idea why it took me so long to use this site, its pretty much AMAZING.  I use to save tons of pictures on my computer, but this site lets me pin things in one you can repin stuff from other users.  Its so much fun.  You can follow my boards here.  

What are you currently loving?

Weekend Recap...

It’s been 4 days since I saw one of the most AMAZING things ever and I am still slowly coming down from my SUGAR high. The Katy Perry concert was FREAKING AWESOME, every minute of it!!(even the rude drunk guy who spilled beer all over the floor and completely soaked my cute new shoes) I literally felt like someone opened up my head and let all the contents spill out and it formed her tour. It was such a good time, and a true production. Katy was cute, charismatic and super funny and I am pretty much in LOVE now!! Her fan base was KILLER too, there were all types of costumes and a sea of colored wigs (but I have to say mine was the best…LOL).

We had great seats, even though we were high as hell and at one point I swear I felt like I was going to slide over the balcony.  It was also really hard to get decent photos, they had this bright spotlight on her the majority of the concert, so I only got a few good ones.

 (Her outfits were so much fun!!)

I was so inspired after leaving, I love seeing people do amazing things in their own way, and she is clearly true to her self.   Robyn was her opening act and she was so much fun, that little girl can dance her booty off!!

The rest of the weekend was rather laid back (I mean seriously what else could compare…last I heard Unicorns didn’t exist…LOL) We went to the movies and saw Crazy, Stupid, Love, which was really good, Ryan Gosling still SMOKING HOT! I loved the story line because it went in a direction that was so unexpected.

All in all I had a SUPER weekend!
