Updates and Trader Joe Haul

Couple of announcements and updates going on in my life and I am pretty sure it's going to be a long post since I am such a chatty person. So prepare!


Announcements:
  1. I am 99% decided that I will be attending the Academy of Art in San Francisco for a BA in Fashion Design. I have been talking with an admissions coordinator and am going to open house this Saturday and hopefully that is when I will be signing my name on the dotted line! I only say 99% because I want to decide once I attend open house. It's very exciting and expensive but I have very supportive friends and family who are cheering me on!
  2. I got a new job! It's not anything in my field and I think it's way opposite but it will be a great new experience and I will be making a lot more than any other job.
I guess that's all the cool announcements at the moment but I do have some updates!

Updates:
  1. I am 80% sure I am going back to wordpress. I started my blog on blogger technically in March 2008 and since then I have switched to wordpress and back here again because it really is easier to update on blogger than it is on wordpress. Blogger has been great but lately it's having these glitches that I am not happy with. Such as if I want to go in the middle of a sentence it will bring me to delete a picture, I can't comment on blogspot blogs who only want comments from people with bloger, posts that have been worked hard on have magically been deleted and it's just too many cons and not enough pros at this moment.
  2. I am having a hard time with my temp job boss. I don't like to have any altercations and maybe have wrote one harsh but professional email before for another immature authority figure so it's a stressful situation. I just don't understand how a 42 year old woman needs to act so immature to a 23 year old and I don't really know how to handle this situation. I did her a favor of working an extra 2 days after my two weeks and after I had come home one the first day, she had emailed me letting me know she doesn't need me anymore and would like me to drop her key off. Less than 12 hours later, my recruiter called me saying she had called him about me not returning a key and I had told him all the feedback about this lady and he actually knew that she is difficult and he has been having a hard time dealing with her himself. I told him I will mail her key back but she would have to mail me my notebook. I could be the bigger person and drive back to San Mateo and drop it off but after running so many errands for her on my own gas money and car and going back to the store for 2 hours to finish up something, I just don't feel like doing anything nice for her anymore. Then after emailing her and both agreeing to mailing things back, she had called my recruiter and asked him pick my notebook up for me and still expected me to mail back the key. I emailed back right away saying fine, I will drop your key off with him when he gives me back my notebook but felt really bad after a couple of hours and wrote an email to both of them. First, telling my recruiter that I am sorry that he needs to be in the middle of everything and apologizing. Secondly, telling my old boss that I don't think it's right to involve another person and we should follow up with our original plan. I have yet to get an email back from her.
I don't mean to be harsh and actually hate all this drama but I don't take shit either. I will be professional to a point but when it gets ridiculous like it has become then I am not going to take it. Frankly, I don't deserve it and I don't NEED it.

Phew. I knew that was a lot but I feel great now that I wrote it.

Now it is my Trader Joe Haul! It's not much but I still enjoyed walking through every aisle and looking at new products.

I got penne arrabiatta, romain lettuce, cottage cheese, pico de gallo, lasagna bolognese, mini pizzas, brussel sprouts, rice pilaf, jasmine green tea and instant coffee.
 I got romaine, salsa and cottage cheese because Erin made a bomb salad and I wanted to recreate it.
 Brussel sprouts are tiny and I'm wondering if it's because it's not in season?
 I love rice pilaf and this is one of my favorite! I also needed a refill on coffee and green tea.
Everything came out to about $30 and I'm wondering if Trader Joe's is even considered cheap anymore?

Doesn't matter, I still love it!

When will it be fixed?!
It's frustrating that I cannot write comments on blogger! I have been doing it anonymously but most of my favorite blogs don't have that option!

SIGH.

I've deleted cookies like they've suggested so I know it's not me.

Anyone else having these problems?!

I'm so close to moving back to wordpress =P

Belts

Belts are great accessories! Not only do they keep your pants up but they can accentuate your waist over dresses and tunics.

I have countless dresses that are billowy and bubble-like that I looked like a blob when I wore it but once I put a belt on it became a lovely silhouette.

I've also wore a maxi skirt as a dress with a belt as well.

My Top 10:

10. Menswear Watch
9. Pearls
8. Painted Nails

Silk Done Right

I found a gorgeous simple slip-like silk dress none other than Banana Republic. It's a gorgeous dress and right now retail price is kind of steep (I've gotten cheap since getting such great discounts working at Bloomies!) but it will be a great purchase once the price is in red.

 Favorite part is the back. Elegant thing straps that carefully intertwines on the middle of your back. The banded top with the elegant ruffles of the hem.
I need this dress ASAP.

Gift of REI


How is your weekend going lovely girlies?

Blogger has been acting very strange lately and I haven't been able to comment AT ALL even after deleting my cookies. Let's hope it will be fixed soon because there were so many posts that I wanted to comment on!

Today, Richard and I started off the day with breakfast.

Of course, I had an obligatory coffee. At least 3 cups worth. 


 Jam for my sourdough bread.
 I got linguica and eggs with country potatoes. I love spicy sausage to start off my day.
 Bread came buttered! If I owned a breakfast joint, know that I will always have the toasts buttered for all yall.


Richard went on a shopping spree at REI and I found that I had about $60 in dividends from when I bought my kid's road bike in 2009!

It's so awesome because I somehow lost my bike shorts and those aren't cheap dearies.
Such a great feeling to get biking pants for free!

Well, you know what I mean.

I hiked up my maxi skirt as a dress but this is the first maxi dress that actually fits well for petites!

Then I had a lovely lunch with Richard at Nordstrom.

Started off with Pomegranate Green tea this time.

I made Richard take a picture of my rings.

OF COURSE I had my Salmon Nicoise salad!

Richard got the Turkey Cranberry with a side salad.

Bread and buttah.

Then after lunch I went straight to dinner!

I haven't seen this beezy in two years! She is my sista from another mista. My sister and my friend, Hana was there also.
We shared sweet potato frites with sriracha ketchup.
I got Jambalaya. I don't know what real Jambalaya tastes like but I really like the one at Elephant Bar!

I am soo pooped.

Goodnight girlies.
