My oh my, where do I begin?
As far as jobs go, I left you with a cliff hanger when I said Beau was trying to get a job as a busser at a day club…well, he got hired at Tao Beach! I am so proud of him for working so hard so we can start saving money to buy a house by the end of the year. We don’t see each other that much since he got the job because he works all day and I work all night but we know we’re doing this for the right reasons. As for me, I’m still working 30+ hours a week at the brand new Quad that opened on March 1st. It’s truly beautiful inside and with the exception of a few problems with the new tables and what not, it seems to be a great thing for all of us. We’re bringing in extra money in tips and that’s all that matters!
Starting back at Valentines Day, I woke up to beautiful flowers and a delicious breakfast of crepes and fresh fruit. If you know Beau and me, you know that I’m the cook and he cleans up so him making me breakfast AND cleaning up was truly a treat!
The next night we finished off celebrating Valentine’s Day with my uncle and aunt at Maggianos!
Though all these great things have been happening in our lives, I had been in a considerable amount of pain due to a botched root canal by my old dentist (sucks, right?). Over the last month I had been attending a new dentist and I’m happy to report, after about $1000 (that’s not the happy part), my tooth is free of pain and it’s been fixed! Praise God!
Next, on February 24, it was Michael’s 22nd birthday! On Saturday the 23rd, in the afternoon I saw the show Nunsense at the LVH with my mom, aunt, and uncle. I’m going to you $40 right now and tell you to NEVER see that show!! I couldn’t get out of that showroom fast enough so we could start celebrating Michael’s birthday! We started the night off at Via Brazil (a meat lover’s paradise) and ended it with a table and bottle of Belvedere at our favorite gay club, SHARE. We had a blast and to make a long story short, Beau had to come get me at the end of his work night. 😊
Last and DEFINITELY not least was our big yearly trip to Reno….
Austin, Diana, Michael, Beau, and I headed in a 5 seater car to the horrible city of Reno to watch the Rebels, yet again, destroy the Wolfpack in basketball. The whole weekend was kind of a blur but we did manage to get kicked out of the game for “taunting” and kicked out of our hotel for a noise complaint at 3 in the morning which forced us to head back quite a few hours earlier than we were planning. I will tell you right now, everything that went wrong for us was strictly because we were UNLV fans. Even the cops told us that! Regardless, it made for a very fun trip and it’s not gonna stop us from heading back for more every year!
As far as our health:
Beau got bored with working out so he stopped working out with me which is fine. But I have really kept my dedication constant and I’m proud of myself for that. However, I had to stop weight lifting. Unfortunately, dealing blackjack comes with consequences and one of those is wrist pain. For the last 2 weeks now, I have been dealing (no pun intended) with excruciating pain and I’ve had to wear a wrist brace to bed and whenever I’m not doing anything. I don’t think it’s getting better and I haven’t gone to the doctor but I’m hoping that if I just keep babying it, it will just go away. I’m not a “go to the doctor” kind of person. BUT, there’s always a silver lining! I have really started to up my cardio game and I started running on my way home from work. I have been putting on an episode of Gossip Girl and just going to town and in 42 minutes I have ran 3.82 miles without stopping. For those of you who know me, you know I don’t run, I’ll do the bike or the elliptical (which I feel is somewhat a safe way out) but the treadmill? No more than 20 minutes and definitely not running. I can completely give credit to the Jillian Michaels videos for conditioning my cardio. I now have a new hobby and I LOVE IT!
I have one more thing to tell you all about and I’ll be done, I swear!! See, this is why I shouldn’t wait a month before I blog!
2 WORDS: coconut oil.
If you don’t know what this is, you are missing probably the greatest household item known to man.
I use it for shaving, taking off my makeup, night cream, lotion, I put it in my hair before I go to bed and wash it out the next morning, and yes, cooking!! And I’ve gotten my husband to use it for shaving as well and he’s sold! You must try it!
And here’s a few pictures to finish it off of dates and nights out:
Alright, that’s all from me. I swear my next blog won’t be this intense 🙂
