Stuff from Stephers

I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

Get in my belly..

A couple more vegetarian restaurants I want to try now. This place has a veggie hero that sounds pretty amazing Rio Rita and I'm interested in Bouldin Creek Coffee House for the all day breakfast which sounds normal but pretty good. Maybe I'm just hungry right now. And in case you've never gone to Mother's Cafe or Veggie Heaven those are both pretty good veggie food that I'd rather be eating right now than sitting at work thinking about.

Rachel tagged me, so here are 7 things that you may not know about me.

1. My new neighbors live
here. The cemetary entrance is through the parking lot near my building. This actually makes me like my apartment complex more to have a cemetary nestled in here.

2. I’m taking the LPC licensing exam on April 1st.

3. My biggest fears are failure and smelling bad. Both of which I do often.

4. My boy name would have been Carl.

5. I was in OCP (On Campus Placement) once for 3 days in high school – a sort of all day detention program.

6. I made it onto the cheerleading squad in high school because I was the first alternate and someone decided to not be on the team.

7. I call my boyfriend things like “my cheeto” “snuggleufagus” and “love button.” He calls me “weird”…with love of course.

Valentines day in photos

On Valentines Day I got home from work around 10:30. Here's our pretty dinner table. If you make the picture big you can see the cards and they're pretty funny.

Adam made me tofu and broccoli - one of my favorites!

He got me this beautiful heart necklace (with help from a personal shopping assistant)

Dessert was champagne and cake.

Here's my artistic photo of champagne and flowers.

Are you what you eat?

Which dessert would you choose?

Angel food
Lemon meringue pie
Vanilla cake with chocolate icing
Strawberry short cake
Chocolate cake with chocolate icing
Ice cream
Carrot cake

And does your personality match the description? I'm a brownie.

Angel food: Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all warm and fuzzy items. A little nutty at times. Sometimes you need an ice cream cone at the end of the day. Others perceive you as being childlike and immature at times.

Brownies: You are adventurous, love new ideas, are a champion of underdogs and a slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up, you whip out your saber. You are always the oddball with a unique sense of humor and direction. You tend to be very loyal.

Lemon meringue pie: Smooth, sexy, and articulate with your hands, you are an excellent after-dinner speaker and a good teacher. But don't try to walk and chew gum at the same time. A bit of a diva at times, but you have many friends.

Vanilla cake with chocolate icing: Fun-loving, sassy, humorous. Not very grounded in life; very indecisive and lack motivation. Everyone enjoys being around you, but you are a practical joker. Others should be cautious in making you mad. However, you are a friend for life.

Strawberry short cake: Romantic, warm, loving. You care about other people and can be counted on in a pinch. You tend to melt. You can be overly emotional and annoying at times.

Chocolate cake with chocolate icing: Sexy, always ready to give and receive. Very creative, adventurous, ambitious, and passionate. You have a cold exterior but are warm on the inside. Not afraid to take chances. Will not settle for anything average in life. Love to laugh.

Ice cream: You like sports, whether it be baseball, football, basketball, or soccer. If you could, you would like to participate, but you enjoy watching sports. You don't like to give up the remote control. You tend to be self-centered and high maintenance.

Carrot cake: You are a fun loving person, who likes to laugh. You are fun to be with. People like to hang out with you. You are a very warm-hearted person and a little quirky at times. You have many loyal friends.

The other day I started thinking about all the incredibly stupid things that kids do. Then I started thinking about all of the incredibly stupid things I've done in my life...mostly as a "kid." I thought I would share with everyone the reasons that I'm lucky to be alive still at age 28.

1. At some point in middle school I was swinging at the park with my friend Shawnette and she decided to wave down some army guys that were driving by. We decided it would be smart to get out of there, but were too slow because they went around the block and came back. They started to get out of the car (without parking, just in the middle of the street) which is the point that we decided to run the rest of the way back to my house. Luckily we lost them at the corner.

2. In high school I was at the lake with my friend Shawnette (notice a pattern forming?). We were laying out on the beach when some army guys pulled up in their boat and asked if we wanted a ride. Without hesitation we said YES! and jumped on, leaving all of our belongings on the beach for the rest of the afternoon.

3. In college I went to South Padre the weekend after spring break with my friend Shawnette. We stayed in a hotel close enough to the border to walk from it to the other side. We were driving somewhere, got lost and turned into a car wash to turn around. We saw some guys washing their car there and asked them how to get where we were going, and then asked them where to go out at night in Mexico. The guy offered to take us out that night, and we said yes which meant that we ended up driving into Mexico with some random guy that night.

This is only the beginning of the list, but all I have to say is...lucky I'm not dead, eh?
