Another picture

I forgot there was a guy going around Suede taking pictures and he took our picture and gave me a card to find it later online. Wow that was the longest sentence ever. I never claimed grammar and punctuation to be my strong points. Haha. Anywho this is a pic of Laura, Randy and me taking a break from watching the guys play pool. Fun times! I really love going to Suede. The atmosphere is really nice and the drinks are always good!

Today I am home from work. Woke up feeling not so great. I think oysters are now in the same categories as sushi for me. I love it but it doesn't love me. But I am feeling better already thank God! I slept another 5 hours and woke up feeling a bit better.

Oh another thing! So I have been stuck as far as losing weight. I stay between 134 and137 and it is frustrating. So I went to Complete Nutrition in West Ashley to start a new program called CTS360 and I am very excited to see the results. You take 3 different bottles of pills throughout the day! In the AM you take an activate and toning pill and again at 2pm then before bed you take the night formula to keep your body burning fat.
Go check it out I will definitely let you guys know how it works for me! :)

Happy Monday everyone! Be blessed :)

Dancing and oysters

Man this weekend is seriously already over?? :( sad times!

Friday night I got my hair done. It is a little bit darker than before but still the blonde that I love. I ended up at the gym with Laura and then did laundry. Fun stuff right? Lol

Saturday was fun! Hit the gym and chilled at home for a bit. Later in the evening went to a cookout with Laura and some of her family! It was fun and the food was pretty tasty especially the chocolate truffle YUM! Later we went to celebrate my friends birthday at Suede. It was fun but I may have drank too much. Ugh regret it! I wasn't drunk but I def don't want to drink that much again. I have enjoyed my drinking less lately.

Today we woke up early and went to the Oyster Festival at Boone hall plantation. It was fun but there were a ton of people. I believe they estimated 10,000 people based off pre-sale tickets. Tonight I hit the gym and am just hanging out. I am so tired. Also am planning to just stay home this week! I need some downtime. Nothing wrong with that :)

Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Oh I am typing this on my iPad so who knows how the pics will show up! We shall see!

Fill in the Blanks Friday

My favorite place I've traveled to is ... New York City! And I am going back in March. SO excited!

EVERYWHERE but to be specific Australia is somewhere I'd like to go someday.

I pass the time on a plane (or bus, train, etc.) ... Listening to music or reading a magazine. I am not one to socialize with the random stranger next to me.

My three must-haves when I travel are ... water, Iphone and now I am adding my Ipad

The craziest thing that has ever happened to me while traveling is ... traveling on the interstate in Florida and watching the tire roll off the car while my aunt Theresa was driving... FUN TIMES!

The most exotic food that I've tried while traveling is ... nothing exotic but I did discover the BEST bread pudding I have ever put in my mouth in St. Louis!

If I could live anywhere else, I'd live in ... in Australia

I have been to ... 13 ... states in the United States. Clearly I need to travel more

Wish I was here Wednesday

Seriously who doesn't want to jump right in this picture??? I'll take this with a few of my closest friends, some wine and girl talk and that would be paradise!! This picture is actually from a place in the Maldives. Yes please! :) I have been needing a vaca and I am definitely counting down the days until my NYC trip. I haven't been so excited for something in awhile. Well probably since my trip to St. Louis! By the way my BESTEST friend Angel is coming to visit next month and I am beyond excited. We are planning a big girls night out which will be so much fun!

Guess where I just bought a flight to in March??? Maybe the pictures will help....

I am beyond excited I have been dying to go back to NYC. I went 2 years ago and it was a blast. My cousin moved there for a job over a year ago and I finally booked my flight to go visit! I know we will have So much fun! It will be a quick trip A friday to a sunday but hey it will still be great! CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!

Gooooood times

Darn... the weekend is almost over!! This has been quite fun I must say! I basically spent the entire weekend with Laura well the evenings anyway!
Friday night I went to hang out with her and Shawn at his apartment! Pizza, Cake, Beer (woodchuck for me) and music! Good times! I like chill evenings that aren't all crazy every once in awhile! It was weird though because he literally lives in the same building I did when I had my apartment. Brought back memories for me driving up there and parking in the same spot I always parked in.

Saturday I woke up and did spin class which kicked my butt! I haven't sweat that much in a spin class... EVER! But it was a nice way to start the day. Then mom and I went shopping... had to return a few things at the mall and got a new sticker for my car. Removed the other ones... I was over them! I enjoyed some Sara mommy time since it is rare these days. Later I met up with Laura and we went to dinner at her brother and sister-in-law's house. I must say I had home envy... their house was gorgeous. No lie everything about it was to die for! If I could have a realistic dream home that would be it. Anywho we were there about 3 hours... talked and had dinner! It was really nice and first time I had met her sister in law and she was so sweet! A true southern girl! Then after that we met up with our friends Michelle and Randy for some darts, beer ( I had 2) and then later Jenga and dancing at another place! It was a fun night I must say! I am so glad I have figured out that I can have fun in a bar without getting drunk! I guess that is part of growing up huh? haha or just the result of a baaad night! either way I am glad because I literally only spent $4 last night and I am VERY ok with that!!
Today I hit the gym and now am just chilling at home the rest of the evening. You know laundry and cleaning! fun times! But I am not in the mood to do anything after this weekend!
I added some pics :) enjoy!

Me and my woodchuck at Shawns Friday night!

Laura's fat cat
So I am eating pizza... Laura wants me to take a shot of whipped cream vodka... I tell her no it won't taste good with pizza so then she decides to put icing all over my lips... haha no clue!
The girls at Icehouse where we played darts

OMG!!! She got a bulls eye!!!! priceless faces!
I look fat but eh its funny!

Oh look another woodchuck :)
At the second bar we played life size jenga. Their goal was to get it as tall as me. Eh it was close!
see.. its close!

So we were freezing and I am not sure how this ended up being a good idea haha but it was funny!
Michelle and Randy!
He picked me up and I was scared! lol pretty sure I was also trying not to show my butt to the world in this picture! haha

Good times with great people! I have been feeling very blessed lately for all the family and friends I have in my life. I have been having a lot of fun lately! I guess my days of being shy and a hermit are over. Live life to the fullest is all I have to say about that! :D
Hope your weekend was wonderful too :)

Festival Of Lights

I almost forgot to post the pictures Scott and I took at the festival of lights. We went with my aunt and papa but they stayed in the car for the picture session. It was funny because she saw them on facebook a few days later and said so THATS what you guys were doing while we waited in the car! :) haha we didn't say they had to stay in the car! The first one is my absolute favorite! I look super silly but it is funny! I was trying to act like I was a squirrel eating a nut... instead I just looked like a nut!

Pretending to be an angel... we all know the truth so stop pretending ;) HAHA


OMG it is a turtle! Turtles are my favorite!

boys will be boys... haha

yum yum

and... again boys will be boys

This was ALL sand... how crazy

like my house? yes I am in it... just look harder

I love this one of our new bridge on the water... So pretty! espcially with the lighthouse and the yorktown next to it!

Happy Thursday everyone!! It is ALMOST the weekend wooohooo!!! No big plans yet for this weekend... I have been having a very chill week. Been home the last 2 nights and most likely tonight I will stay home. I have actually been enjoying it! It is nice to just unwind sometimes and do nothing!

Birthday Weekend!

Well guys birthday weekend was a success!!! I had the best time and it helps that it was a 4 day weekend!! So here is my recap!

Thursday I worked but after I went to dinner with my family and then went to the festival of lights with my cousin scott, Aunt Debbie and Papa. Fun times then scott and I went to Max and Henrys which is a mini dave n busters basically! Good times spent with the fam! It was nice to see my cousin since he lives in NYC and is hardly here.

Friday I slept in went to the gym mainly for tanning BUT I figured I was there so I should do a little sumthin sumthin. Then I went to see Amber to get a massage and it was awesome! Later that night Kelly and I went to Al Di La for birthday dinner which was yummy. I spent the rest of the evening home in bed watching movies. PERFECT! :)

Saturday was chill mostly as far as the day goes. I woke up had lunch with Kelly at kicken Chicken (had to have a mimo for my birthday). Then I went to get my hair done which turned out AMAZING!!! I absolutely LOVED the curls! I need to try and do that on my own or something like it. I then had a pedicure and picked out my birthday cake then it was home to get ready for the night! I had a few friends going to Suede with me to celebrate my birthday and ring in the new year together! Kelly, Me, Nor, and Laura all met at my house had a bottle of wine then went to Suede and met up with Michelle, Randy and Justin! Perfect group of friends to spend the evening with! We danced our butts off, had a few drinks, got to talk, I got to know Michelle a little more which was nice since we are still new friends and seriously just had the best time! It would have been nice to have a new years kiss but hey there is always next year! lol Enjoy the pics! Btw the first one got misplaced so it goes with Sunday! woops!

My super awesome hair

The ladies minus Michelle in the bathroom

being silly as always haha

I loved how my outfit ended up! I was out of my comfort zone with the dress and the heels but I really ended up liking it!

Very last picture of the night! Crazy hair and a smile on my face! Thank you to my awesome friends for making my birthday night so special! Love you guys!

So Sunday I slept in for quite a while. I got home at 3ish am and had to sleeeeeeeep! I woke up, showered and chilled pretty much. Then I went for coffee at starbucks with Kelly to re-cap the night before. She was a wild crazy girl so I had to make sure she remembered it all! haha We ended up talking there for over an hour it was nice to just CHILL. Then I picked up my cake and headed home to my family party. We had hamburgers, collard greens, rice and beans etc. and the CAKE WAS AMAZING!!!!!! It was a small party but I loved it!

It even said Sayra on it which is one of my nicknames haha

Izzy was IN LOVE with this cake! She got SO excited when we took it out of the box!

She wanted to be right by it and her faces were so funny. I should have put up all the pics just to show you guys her face!

me and my Newman's! Love them!

Monday I ended up sleeping in late again (exhausting weekend) and hit the gym pretty hard before starting the day. I needed that workout and it was awesome! I also put together that pic from my last post of me and my bro in law. I am so proud of our weight loss and I hope to keep it up and not slow down! I chilled at home for a bit then went to see my grammy and my aunts. I ended up talking to my Aunt Theresa for almost an hour about some things. I felt better after so that was good! Her and I have agreed we are probably the most alike out of the family love her! Then to end off my awesome weekend I met up with some friends at DD Peckers where Laura works. I got to finally meet her boyfriend, Kelly came with me and we met up with one of her friends. A few beers, wings and french fries surrounded with good company I would say it was good!

Now today I am working busy busy currently eating my lunch and hoping the rest of the day goes well! Thinking about spin class tonight but I didn't sleep at all last night so I may just go home and SLEEEEEP!!!

Happy Monday and Happy New Year everyone!
