I was gone for a minute, now I am back. Last week we had tons of VIPs in the office; so browsing and blogging the internet was not allowed.
Let's see if I can catch y'all up, quickly.
I finally made eggs benedict at home. They are my favorite eggs without a doubt. I was doubtful over the hollandaise sauce, but got over that as soon as I tasted how great it was. Raw egg? Bring it on!
I also made risotto--my other new favorite thing. My biceps thanks me for that one, there is a whole lotta stirring going on when making risotto. The end result was so worth it. I'm making it again this Thursday for an all girl's dinner at my apartment.
Speaking of...hmmm, I finally found an apartment that I like. Cheaper rent, one floor (level), and 2 different views--one of a courtyard and one of a very quaint street minus any loud restaurants.
And now I am a housewares whore. Any store I have entered in the past few weeks have been: Crate and Barrel, Restoration Hardware, Pier One, and World Market. My plan, as soon as I get back from Mexico is to get rid of all my living and dining room furniture.
You see, they used to be my parents and when I moved out in college, I kept them. Years and years later I don't know why I still have them. They are not even my style. I never eat on the dining table and the couch has seen two slipcovers from Target.
Each being over 15 years old, I think it's time for new furniture.
Due to some drama, I had to get a new cell phone. Ugh! It is so not the cutest RAZR ever, but the same plain model one I had before. Maybe I should forego new furniture for a baby pink RAZR instead...what do you think?
And it was AP's birthday, this time there were no big fights and we took her out to eat dinner and I made a cake. I took the cupcake theory from 411 and turned it into one big cake, very yum.
And the interview--holy crap. It was nerve wrecking. The woman ambushed me and rushed me into the interview; I had no time to spit out my gum. Bright, day-glo green gum. I did my best to hide it in my mouth but who knows. Crap! I cannot believe I blew it like that.
Now sound the bells or something because guess what?
I bought my first ever bikini!
Mexico, aquí vengo!
