I rocked it like I was 21!

On Saturday I had my 26th birthday party celebration! But I really rocked it like I was turning 21! We had so much. A whole bunch of friends got together for dinner at a sushi buffet place. Then after that we headed to the club to put our dancing shoes on and party all night long! And we did! My poor feet were killing me by 2 in the morning and I couldn't bare to dance anymore even though I REALLY wanted to keep dancing all night long. But I had such a blast!

At dinner, we had a huge long table and it was BYOB so let's just say we all got very typsy while enjoying dinner. There were empty bottles everywhere! In our defense, there were about 16 of us. :)

Then, my friend bought me a birthday cake to share with everyone and it was great because the staff from the Sushi buffet place came out with gongs, tambourines, and all other sorts of instruments with candles on my birthday cake and all! They dimmed the lights and there just happen to be a disco ball right above our table that lit up the restaurant like a club while everyone sang Happy Birthday to me! Awesome, I know!

So, I leave you with some pics from the birthday bash... but also with some pics of my NEW HAIR DO!!!

This was me before:

And this is me now!

Birthday table of close friends!

My big birthday candle along with my small ones!

I think that by this point, the wine started to kick in

This is before we left the house to go to dinner

The joys of spending birthdays with close friends...

So much to tell you!

There is so much to tell you about my weekend and I was dying to write about it today, but Mr. Newlywed Giggles has not being feeling well all morning long, so I've been behind him making sure he's drinking fluids and doesn't become dehydrated on me! Hoping it will pass if it's like a 24 hour bug.

So, maybe later today when he is hopefully feeling better I will post.

Some teasers for ya!
1. Birthday party celebration which including sushi buffet, a big ass candle, disco lights.... and this is only at dinner
2. Went dancing at the club like a true 21 year old, even though I'm 26.
3. relaxing Sunday after watching Mr. Newlywed Giggles softball game at the park


A NEW HAIR DO!!!!!!!! Can't wait to show you the pics!

Stay tuned for later today....

Oh, and if anyone happens to know what to do to make a person who has been vomiting feel a bit better, please let me know. I already have the ginger ale, saltine crackers, jello and chicken soup, but if anyone knows of anything else that would help, I would greatly appreciate it!

ATM and little ole me get into a fight.

So yesterday I had to run to the ATM to take some quick cash out. I was driving my husbands car which is a GMC Acadia. It's like a small SUV. Now, I am 5' o". Which means that I am now in a car that is a SUV size and my arms are not very long.

Now attempt to get a mental picture....

Got it? Good.

So, I decide to use the drive up ATM at my local bank because I'm in a real hurry. I pull up and realize that I have to take my seat belt off so I can slouch over the car window to put my card in and press all the buttons. The ATM machine is a bit on the low side. Now, as I'm pulling up to it I decide to get as close as I can because of my short arms, it's always been easier to press all the buttons. What I fail to realize is that they put in a new ATM machine which in my opinion is much lower than the other one. I manage to put my card and press the buttons, and then this is when the unthinkable happens.

My money comes out and I am now practically leaning halfway out the window trying to get my money and I CAN'T REACH MY MONEY! OK, what do I do? [[light bulb turns on]]... I'll just open the door. Oh wait, I can't open my door because I am so darn close to the ATM that my door won't even open a half a centimeter. OK, I'll pull up forward and turn the car a bit so I can open the door and squeeze myself out and then I'll just take my money out. So, this is what I do. Right when I squeeze myself out of the car and am walking sideways to the ATM machine, I see my money getting sucked back into the ATM!!!!!! Yes, there is a time frame and I took so long trying to get my money that it took it back and I had to call the bank.

Most embarrassing part? Explaining to the representative on the phone the reason I'm filing a dispute.

Me: "My arms were too short to reach the money and my car was parked so close that I had to pull up and by the time I got out, it took the money back. I didn't realize I was being timed. If you can see the surveillance video, it would give you a good laugh."

Representative: "[giggling a bit] You would be surprised how many times it happens. There are talks of moving the ATM a bit higher for customers who have SUVs and are having difficulty reaching. You are the not the first one."

Me: "Oh good, that makes me feel better that I'm not the only one. Seriously, I would love to see the video of me hanging out of my car trying to reach my money. I'm sure the security people are getting a good laugh. Thanks for your help."

Representative: "Thank you and have a nice day!"

409, Pledge, and Windex

Cleaning products were my friends today as I cleaned up and organized the apartment as much as I could today. I smell like cleaning products and think I will smell like this for awhile. :(

But, I did go out today to the bank and had a "hilarious" moment......

Tune in tomorrow for my post and I promise it will make you laugh!

We're going to the water park again tomorrow with a group of friends. I'm excited to slide down on the tubes yelling "weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"

Be jealous. I get to act like a 12 year old again tomorrow running around the water park yelling "let's do the blue tube then the rafts!"

So, I won't be posting tomorrow,but I will post Monday, most likely about how sore my body is and how I wished my feet didn't exist. :)

Have a wonderful Sunday and see you on Monday!

A great day

Yesterday was my 26th birthday. We didn't have anything special planned. I went to work and got some really nice flowers from my co-worker which I blogged about yesterday and when I got home, I was greeted by a HUGE bouquet of flowers AND chocolate covered strawberries that were from Mr. Newlywed Giggles.

Aren't they gorgeous!!!!! It brought a huge smile to my face and our apartment also smells great too with all the flowers! :)

Mr. Newlywed Giggles and I went to Chili's for dinner, yummo! Then after we met up at our friends house for movie night and they were kind enough to buy me a cake as well! So, we had some beers, cake and watched Role Models and laughed all night.

All in all, it was a great birthday. My birthday party is next weekend so this celebration will be extended!

So, I ask you this? What was the best birthday present your significant other ever bought you?

Aug 20, 2009

It's my birthday today!

My awesome and cool co-worker brought me flowers today for my birthday! Thanks Robyn!!!

She's awesome and makes me laugh with her stories everyday. But I love her even more because she brought me flowers and now my desk smells like flowers!

If you're having a down day today, I virtually send you these flowers to cheer you up as they cheered me up today. :)

My last day being 25

So today marks the last day I will be 25. Shocking I know!

This week at work has been super busy and tonight I take my sister and the kids to the airport so she can fly home. I'm going to miss her and my niece and nephew a lot. So, it's been a crazy hectic week.

Yesterday, when I was leaving work, I said goodbye to two of my co workers and told them that I would see them on Thursday because Wednesday I would be working from home. One of my co-workers looked at me and said "See you Thursday on your birthday!". For a minute, I think I may have looked at her like she was crazy because I actually forgot it was my birthday on Thursday. Yep, I forgot. I laugh at it now but really, who forgets their birthday the week of? It's not like I completely forgot because I even sent out my own invites for a dinner get together going on next week. But with so many things on my mind this week, I forgot!

So, today I will try to enjoy my last day as a 25 year old. :)

My addiction is back

In college, I was addicted to Top Ramen along with almost every other college student. Then I took a long hiatus.

Now, I fell into the trap of seeing it in the grocery store and bought some packs. I think my addiction might have roared it's ugly head again.

The joys of noodles...

I'm here

just in a crabby mood today. This past weekend has been filled with fun family time and also some relaxation time so that is why I haven't posted sooner.

I'm super busy at work, but wanted to vent about the one thing that happened to me today.

Walking into my building I notice that the elevator door just opened and see two ladies walking in. While holding my purse over my shoulder, holding my bag with my lunch around my wrist, holding a paper bag with my bagel and coffee while having my headphones in I start to briskly walk to the elevator to catch it. I am standing in front of the elevator ready to walk in right when it starts to close and I put my arm in the way to stop, but of course the door isn't retracting to open again (old elevators I guess), so the woman standing right in front looking at me is staring at me and I am thinking she will hit the button to open the door again; she doesn't.

So this is what I say to her.

You are a bitch.

Again, my morning didn't start off great and this lady sure did make it worse by being so RUDE!

There's my vent. Talk to you all soon!

Pics from DC trip!

We had a blast when we went to DC for the weekend last week. Our trip included us and our best friends. We all piled up into my best friend's suburban and took the 4 1/2 hour drive. We left around 6 on the Friday night and actually made it to the hotel within 4.5 hours, even with stopping for food! We got real lucky with hitting almost no traffic the whole way. So, below I leave you with some pics from our trip. I was a bit trigger happy with my new camera so when I finally uploaded all of my pics, I had taken 446 pictures within 3 days... crazy, I know! Enjoy the pics below!

The office temperature is set to FREEZING

The pictures will better explain how cold I am at the office. Let's just say it was not a good idea to wear open toe sandal, short sleeve shirt and Capri's. Thankfully I have two sweaters that I leave at my desk.... one to wear with the hoodie and the other one to wrap around my legs!

The joys of a freezing office...

I'm not complaining... I'm just saying...

My birthday present is awesome

So, I have lots to write about but I'll start off with my early birthday present from Mr. Newlywed Giggles!

Yep, that sweet camera is MINE! He bought me a new digital camera from Canon. I LOVE it. It takes great pictures and the zoom is ridiculous! So, if any of you are thinking about purchasing a digital camera, as of now, I recommend this one. It's not super bulky and also contains the best features a big ole super expensive camera would.

So, this post is dedicated to Mr. Newlywed Giggles for doing a WONDERFUL job on a perfect birthday present.


The joys of birthdays....

NOT cool

Literally, not cool! I am NOT looking forward to walking the 10 blocks to the PATH station.

I will be a sweaty girl

Being sweaty is not cool

ugh.... the joys of Monday and hot and humid weather in the city....


I'm back at work from my week long vacation and can I tell you how crappy I feel?

I put my work clothes on this morning, then took them off and put my pj's back on and decided I was either calling out sick or working from home, then two minutes later put my work clothes on and yelled at myself for even thinking of calling out of work.

This morning arrived at my desk all sweaty from my 10 block walk to the office in 85 degree which FEELS like 97 because of the humidity.

And I'm now going through my 104 e-mails and three hours in and I just started on Wednesday of last week... I still have Thursday Friday and all the emails from today to go through.

It's going to be a long day...... which means, I deserve Starbucks.

I'll recap later about my DC trip!

Happy Monday!!!!!

I'm off! Please don't miss me!


Today is a super exciting day because of two things:

1) We are leaving on a road trip with our best friend's to DC. We literally leave in about half hour!!!!! I have never been to DC so I'm very excited especially since we are going with our bestest of friends!

2) Mr. Newlywed Giggles gave me my birthday present early!!!!! It's a new digital camera! My old one has been acting lately and not charging and when he found out that we were going to DC this weekend, he gave me the present early so we can use it!!!!!!!! It's so awesome! I'll post about it later.

But I wish you all a WONDERFUL weekend and will catch up with all of you come Monday! Happy Weekend.

Stay up-to-date with my weekend with my Tweets!!!!!

I love vacation time

Yesterday, Mr. Newlywed Giggles and I went to the American Museum of Natural History and had such a great time. We walked all 4 floors and also ate lunch in the nice cafe there. But boy did we forget about how much walking we had to do. My poor legs and feet have no idea what hit them this week! So, today we are just chillaxing at home and maybe going to run some errands later. I haven't been posting as much because the Mr. and I are enjoying our vacation and time together with no work worries. Tomorrow we are leaving to DC for the weekend!!! I'm excited because I have NEVER EVER been to DC. Crazy, I know. So tomorrow we will be taking the 4 1/2 hour drive in a filled car with our best friends. It's going to be so much fun! I'll post before we leave tomorrow with some more details and something to make you giggle about for the weekend! :)

Waterpark + Mr and Mrs. Newlywed Giggles = FUN

So, today was the start of our vacation and we decided to go to Camel Beach water park.


No really, it was so much fun! We had such a blast. We went on all of the rides several times! Some minor bumps and bruises were had, but in the end it was worth it.

Ok, now the only thing that really screws you up at the water park is ALL OF THE WALKING on BARE FEET! Unless you have water shoes, you will pretty much walk around all day in the park barefoot, especially since some rides don't even allow water shoes. Boy did we NOT realize how painful it was going to be after hour 4 of being there! The bottom of my feet hurt so bad but taking some Aleve and a good night's rest will hopefully fix it.

Next stop for our vacation week, Wildwood Beach!

Not in the office today...

Because this week we are both on vacation!

On the agenda for today, Camelbeach water park!

So, I won't post today due to the water activities:

Have a happy Monday everyone and I will post soon about our water park adventures!
