In’s & Out’s

2 Mar

In’s

-I’m roughly 30% through grad school!

-I secured an internship to be a MFT Trainee! (I still call it an internship because it’s unpaid). I start getting my own clients this summer. Crazy!

-I’m no longer working in the service industry with the public. I’ll miss my team a bunch, but I will miss none of the public or manual labor.

-I got a new job babysitting the most adorable infant!

-Now I can focus on school, my wellness, this blog, everythingโ€ฆ

-This rainy/cloudy weather. Love to cocoon under heavy blankets โค

-Baseball season is approaching. Looking forward to Dodger game days!

-I went to Costco for the first time in over 10 years. I must say, that they have some pretty good food/meal options. I need to go back.

Out’s

-From the craziness of the past few weeks, I have (yet another) cold.

-This month is full of projects and papers.

-I just realized that my cat is 9 years old. How?!

Keeping My Chin Up

14 Apr

I’ve been dealing with another depression spell lately, and I decided to update you all on what I’ve been up to/ think of all the positive things that have been going on.

steel panther

I got to attend Steel Panther’s album release party last week at the Rainbow Bar and Grill. I’ve never been upstairs before. It’s such a classic, old Hollywood spot. Just another perk of having a bf in the biz *hand flop*. I enjoyed it/felt like I was back in the 80’s. This is a picture I took with my favorite band member. He had his name in rhinestones on the butt of his leather pants. Switch lives with me?

dodgergame

Nate and I finally got to see a Dodger game this year! I got him tickets to opening weekend against the Giants for Valentine’s Day. The new Ramirez and Gonzales shirts that I bought were a little big, so Nate wore mine, and I wore his old Kemp one. How cute are we sharing clothes?!

mexicanWe made a whole day of it. The game started at 5:00 p.m., but we were downtown for lunch at this awesome Mexican restaurant (have I mentioned that is my favorite kind of food?!). I had a lime-jalepeno margarita. Not only was it fun but we got a clutch parking spot and had a nice walk up the hill to take away some of our food/drinking guilt.

Obligatory tall-boy selfie. Those things are like $15

Needless to say that we will need to attend more games this year because Time Warner screwed us DIrecTv-ers over! Grr.. WAIT I must stay positive..

lynxy

Who is this cutie? My brother, AJ’s cat-son, Lynx. I got to take care of him while AJ was at Coachella. He’s cool. He has like 30 toes.

Speaking of toes… I had to post this cute moment of Milo ๐Ÿ™‚

Haven’t Forgotten About You!

22 Feb

Hi Everyone,

I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to post lately. I’ve been SUPER busy with work, and also exhausted to the point where I’m at a loss for inspiration to blog about new things! Not to worry, I have a lot coming up that will be blog-worthy. Stay tuned! In the mean time, I will be resting up, buy some products to try, and drinking my feelings of overwhelmment on being an adult.

 

Stay Positive,

Emma

Milo Loves My Blanket

18 Dec

My cat, Milo is probably my biggest fan of my crochet/knitting projects. Here he is all cozy on a blanket I crocheted for Nate last year. Luckily it matches our apartment. I just pulled it out a few weeks ago when it started to get chilly.

In’s & Out’s

29 Oct

IN’S

  • I have a huge announcement to make! Happy days are on the way! That’s right, I got a different job. This one will support me if I switch to part-time when I go to school too.ย  I can see the light at the end of this tunnel, it’s only 2 weeks away!
  • In addition to that, I get a nice 6 day break in between jobs!! Yay sleep and shopping ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Being more in shape and flexible. It feels so good!
  • Halloween festivities! This year I got a pumpkin and carved it! This is the first time I’ve done this since I was like 14. Above is my pumpkin. We named him Gunther.ย  Our friends came over and we drank wine and ate Trader Joes’ pumpkin bread pudding while carving. Then I roasted the seeds and it was sooo good! This Friday, my friends are having a Halloween party too and I’m excited to go crazy with my leftover costume combo!
  • American Horror Story: Coven. OMG. I’m so into this show, especially since it’s Halloween time. I love the tabooness about it. I also like that Nate and I now have another show we can watch together ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Listening parties- Last night I got to be Nate’s date for Yuna’s album listening party. It was really cool because a) there was FREE seasonal beer, b) it was an acoustic strip-down of the album, c) she played her old song that is my favorite, and d) I got to see a cool little studio venue that I’ve never been to before.
  • A quiet kitty!!!! Can you believe it?! I don’t want to jinx it. But last night, I had a crazy idea that Nate or my family on the other side has been bugging or playing with Milo at night. I found him randomly in the middle of the living room quietly mewing at nothing. I stooped next to him and told him he just has to tell it to go away and it will because it is more scared of us that we are of it. Then I said “please go away” in the direction of Milo’s meowing. I went back to bed, Milo followed, curled up and slept soundly. Creepy much?! I believe it.

OUT’S

  • 2 more weeks here -_- I thought they’d let me go early.
  • They don’t dress up for Halloween here. WHAT?!?!
  • It’s arts and crafts week at panty camp
  • Not all of my family is cooperating with my fun family bonding idea ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Forever 21 Haul | Workout & Sleep

8 Oct

I treated myself over the weekend and found some new workout bottoms and sleepwear at Forever 21. Of course when I see cute socks, I can’t resist either ๐Ÿ™‚

catnap

Fitting because I love cats and naps

meow

Loved the Meow! Plus it’s starting to get cold at night and that kind of pant looks like it won’t creep up in the night.

shorts

I got two pairs of these fold-over shorts. Only $6.50 each! I got one with a pink band, and one with a white one. (color pics not online)

workoutpants

I got a long form of the fold-over workout shorts (leggings). This one I got with a white fold-over band. My walk to the gym is going to get pretty chilly as winter approaches, so I decided to start racking up the longer athletic wear.

holidaysocks

These socks looked fitting for the approaching seasons. Only a few bucks!

longcatsocks

How could I not get these?! I kind of like that they are a little longer so I can cover my ankles when I wear leggings with boots.

shortcatsocks

Too cute for me to handle! Needed them on my feet ASAP.
