I finally got to visit New Orleans!! Selina and I decided on a fun weekend away for her birthday. She's been to New Orleans before, but didn't get to have the whole experience. We left early Friday morning and got there about noonish. We got to check in early! We stayed at the crowne plaza right on canal and bourbon. We immediately wanted something awesome to eat. We decided on a little bar down the road. We had alligator sausage po boys! They were so damn delicious! Friday was her birthday so I told her to pick dinner. Of course, she wanted nasty oysters! I like oysters if they're fried or baked. I can't eat that gooey mess haha We went to Acme for dinner and it was pretty good. The rest of the trip we basically walked everywhere and ate as much as our tummies could handle haha 

A few shop workers and other locals directed us to some great places. Everyone was super nice! My favorite place was Petite Amelie. It's a cute little cafe. It was the only place we went to more than once. I also really loved Cafe Du Monde! It was so yummy!  My favorite purchase was my owl purse!! I didn't even see it until my friend pointed it out. It is handmade! I absolutely love it :)

It was exhausting but totally fun. I would really love to go back!

Have you ever been to New Orleans?

Reindeer Ornaments

This is my desk at work today. I love being able to sew in between patients. My supervisor and manager don't mind at all because I always have the best numbers in our department. So I get to do a little work at work :) Last year so many people said I didn't have enough of these little guys. This year I think I should have plenty haha I've been much better at getting prepared for the holidays this year. I'm hoping my shows go well! 

Do you usually prepare for the holidays early or do you wait until the last possible minute?

My weekend was full of this beautifulness. I miss it. The weather was amazing and the sky was sooo gorgeous! Took the pups to the park to walk a few miles then socialize with other pups at the dog park. It was so nice and relaxing. We then spent some much needed time at our pool. I got some silly tan lines. This weekend my little cousins are coming to town so we can celebrate them turning 21! We will start Saturday by going to the park to do our own little 5k. Then we'll head back to our apartment to start grilling then have some drinks and sing some karaoke! Should be a fun weekend :)

What are your weekend plans?

Sooo I suck at blogging.

I have been sewing, I promise! I am getting ready for a few shows coming up this fall. I have also been doing pretty well at keeping up with the whole eating right and working out routine. Pretty well. We finished the Biggest Loser Challenge at work last week. I won :) I could have done way better, but over the last month I have been going out of town a lot and that really messes up my eating and workout schedule. I know it shouldn't. But it really really does. I only lost 11 lbs...but I kept it off! haha I'm doing much better now. I've really started noticing differences. I put on some jeans that used to be too tight and that made me happy :D

Let's see if I can keep this up...

Mother's Day Afternoon Tea

Mother's day was so fun! I got up early to workout with my aunt then spent the rest of the day with my Gma. We went to Hotel Granduca and had afternoon tea! I didn't even know that such a thing happened here! Haha The hotel was beautiful,  and everyone there was super sweet. The tea was AMAZING and the food was PERFECT.  My Gma loved every second of it and she was so cute and all excited. That evening,  my dad made ribs, steak, and lobster! My Gma was spoiled and it was great :)

Pop Shop Houston

Pop Shop Houston was so awesome! ! So many makers in such an awesome space. I did very well! I was so surprised at how many Rice fans came by! I had to make a few Rice owls and UofH owls right on the spot!  I got a few custom orders from some super sweet people too. It was a long weekend, but totally great. At the end, some makers and I even swapped goods! I got amazing oatmeal sugar scrub from Sam Wish. It smells so wonderful!  I also swapped a fluffy for the most amazing smelling candle from Rekindle Candle Co.

I can't wait until the next Pop Shop!

Mini Pops

I got to participate in Mini Pops by Pop Shop Houston. Even though it was a little rainy, it was a nice day! I got to meet some awesome makers and sweet customers.  The food was so yummy and we even got free beer!

I can't wait for Pop Shop Houston on May 3-4!!

My Typical Day

I have seen these hourly photo posts around and finally decided to do one myself. I'll tell you right now that my days don't tend too have many exciting moments to capture.  Sure I have plenty of stories to share but not much to show for it because it is against the law the share patient information and take pictures of patient's charts haha I get to sit at my desk all day Monday through Friday. Here it goes...
I usually wake up before my alarm. It's usually very annoying haha My giant painting makes me smile though. 

Brody gets to do his business when I'm done getting ready.
I clock in and start working at 8 am even though I usually get here early to eat breakfast and get settled in.

I get to sew at work in between patient calls :)
I make sure to take a few breaks during the day to go to the bathroom or just stretch. I always take the stairs. 

Work. Work. More work...

Lunch break! Food time and catching up on blogs or making reservations for afternoon tea :)

Back to work.

My window and spring decor.

Much needed break. I get to talk to a lot of nice patient's but there's plenty that think being mean gets them what they want. That's not how I operate!

Out of the office! 

Dinner. Sometimes I have breakfast for dinner.  This is some deer chorizo that one of my doctors made!


Shower time. I love my gray floral shower curtain. 

Painting my nails. I do this almost once per week.

I like to be in bed watching TV or a movie before sleep around 10. 

It's not an exciting day, but the little things make me happy :)

Favorite Short Haircuts

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

So I've been bored with my hair lately.  It got kinda long and it was annoying me so I chopped a few inches off yesterday! Pinterest has plenty of inspiration, so I put together some of my favorites. I really do love my hair this length.  I curled my hair today and loved it. Then I took the pup for a walk and it was humid and sprinkly outside so it got a little blah. Freaking Texas weather.  It was gorgeous yesterday! Oh well, maybe it'll be nicer tomorrow.

I am 26 years old today. I am grateful for the people and all that I have in my life :)  Looking forward to some adventures this year!

A Beautiful Mess  shared this awesome challenge. It's pretty much a daily log of what makes you happy. All you do is post a picture to social media each day of something that makes you happy.
My first picture was of my baby fan and polka dot mug full of frozen yogurt. The AC went out at work so I was super excited when my supervisor reminded us we still had ice cream from our department's party. I think it will be nice to really make sure to document happy things each day. Focusing on the good will make me grateful for the little things. 

Read about the challenge here. Follow my #100happydays on instagram @_itssooofluffy

What made you happy today?

Fluffy Friday

I'll be happy if I my body let's me sleep until 8 am :)

Have a great weekend!

I love that I get to sew at work :) I've been working on some custom orders and suggestions from my last craft show customers.  I showed my dad the super hero owls and he suggested I make the entire justice league. So I made aquaman and martian manhunter (never heard of him). Haha The green bay ones were a special request and she loved them so much she said she'll order more for some other babies!  It makes me so happy to create something for your little ones :)

Any suggestions for fluffies?
