3-Day Celebration of Birth...

Today was the last day of my Birthday Celebration, so we had a family dinner at Ted's.
It's rare that all eleven of us can get together, so when we do it's always epic!

Not only did I take a picture with a guy in drag for his funeral *cough* bachelor party:

But, I also got sang to while I was wearing a sombrella (new word my niece, Laney, made up):

My stories wouldn't be complete without a great quote, so here's the winning quote for the night:

My ever-so-cute sister-in-law, Cassie:  "How old are you this year?"
Me: "22"
Cass: "Really, I thought you were 23?"
Me: "Nope, Naner and I are two years apart."
Cass: "So you've only been 21 for a year?"
Me: "Yep, that's usually how it works..."
Naner: "Cass, how long were you 21??"

It was, without a doubt, the funniest/cutest thing I've heard in awhile.  
I just love her...

Now I'm off to New York City for the week!
Don't miss me too much ;)

It's My Birthday, I'll Cry If I Want To...

What started out as a horrible birthday, turned out to be a pretty great one.

Look at these awesome seats:

What can I say--baseball butts drive me nuts!

I sent this picture to my mother.
Her response?
"Don't reach over the rail to catch a foul ball."

Too soon? 
Probably, I still laughed though.

Now on to the 3rd day of celebrating my birthday...

Awkward & Awesome Thursday, Edition 18


Going to a friends' profile only to find out you are no longer friends.  
The awkward "who deleted who" thought then goes through your head...

When you thought you hung up the phone and make a comment about the person being rude, only to have them call you back and say they heard your comment.  
Good thing I was just speaking the truth!


Getting a flower brought to me at work :)

My birthday (tomorrow), even though it's an un-important year...

The fact that I'm leaving for New York in 2 days!!

Only having to work two days next week :)

Best Way to Start off a Day

That's right, I got a flower today!
It was such a sweet and thoughtful gesture--definitely made my day week :)

And yes, that is my New York packing list on the legal pad.  3 days and counting!!

New Shoes, No Blues

I went on the pursuit of tennis shoes today. 
I got these:

They were having a BOGO 1/2 off sale, so OF COURSE I had to find another pair.

Say hello to these beauties.  
I had to get some some girly shoes since I had just bought tennis shoes.  

They were the perfect addition to my heel collection.  
See below (my favorites):

Retail therapy really is the best medicine...
new shoes=no blues :)

Caution: This is a Hater Post...

Boys suck.
That's just all there is to it. 

It's pretty sad when I KNOW they're lying to me and they still can't admit to it.  
Do they really think I'm THAT dumb??
What they don't realize is that if they would just be up front with me, I'd let a lot of stuff slide.
But alas, they lie about it; good thing I always find out.  
I could be in the CIA with my skills! 

Want to know what my biggest pet peeve is?
Guys telling me they're broke.
That is the quickest turnoff for me...if you can't afford to even take me to dinner on my birthday (when I'm already buying the baseball game tickets), you don't deserve me. 

Interesting advice I have been given recently:

The other day, my boss told me to either marry rich or be super successful and make my own money so that I don't have to depend on a guy.  
I told him I choose the second one.  

My doctor told me that I'd have to move far away to even be able to find a guy intelligent enough to carry on a conversation with me.  
He then asked me if the reason my heart had been racing was because I had seen a good-looking guy. 
I told him, unfortunately that was not the case...

Natural Blonde

One of the guys at work asked me if I was a natural blonde; I was offended.
In retrospect, maybe it was a compliment...?

Take me out to the ball game...

I may or may not have used my awesome negotiating/flirting skills to score some free baseball tickets today...

I'm just good like that.

I busted out my new, skin-tone 6 inch stilettos today.
Definitely worth the pain of breaking in new shoes when multiple guys nearly break their necks doing double takes.  

This girl is always full of surprises!

On another note, I am now enrolled for my MBA!! 
I will get my new laptop next month and will start classes at the end of the month.
I did my research and fought to get the best teachers.
As a result, I think I scored the PERFECT schedule :)

I can do anything for a year...right?

Even though I hate my last name, wouldn't it be kinda fun to go get my Doctorate and be Dr. Duffle?? Kind of has a nice ring to it! 
Too bad I have no idea what I'd want to pursue further education in; I suppose I could be a Doctor of B.S. or Sarcasm...that wouldn't surprise anyone though! lol

Yummy Crayons

Who would have thought that crayons would have such tasty names?

Guacamole Green & Queso Yellow! 
I guess that's what happens when restaurants name crayons...

They're not so GREEEAAAATTTT...

Why, oh why, does Tony think boxes of cereal should only be two-thirds full...?
It makes me sad :(

Not-So-Intelligent Blonde Moments...

Naner (who had just gotten back from a cruise): "I thought about getting a tattoo when we were in Key West."

Me (who clearly didn't think before I spoke): "You were going to trust people in another country to give you a tattoo?!"

Naner: "Lana, Key West is in Florida..."

Awkward & Awesome Thursday, Edition 17

Technically, this is just going to be an Awkward Post--it's been an un-awesomely, awkward week!


Random creeper: "Are those diamonds real?"
Me: "Yes"
RC: "Did a sugar daddy buy them for you?"
Me: ""
Some people are just too awkward for words...

Accidentally calling a sex hotline at work. 
Yep, I did that.
And yes, it did take me about 15 seconds to figure out what was going on (about the time the sounds stopped and they told me to press 1 to speak to a sexy girl).
I bet they get a lot of customers from accidental calls like mine! lol

I guess for the "buty"-less?
