Monday Check-in Randomness:

- I FINALLY finished my taxes. I’m such a procrastinator when it comes to doing my taxes because I always owe money. This year was no exception. I’m happy that it’s done with and I don’t have to think about it anymore.

- We discovered a new hiking trail less than 10 minutes away from my apartment! I can’t wait until we can explore it more. I made Daniel keep jumping back and forth until I got the perfect action shot. 

- My Kindle Paper White has been dead for months because I couldn’t find my charger. I ordered a new charger and a cover and it arrived on Saturday. I bought the newest sappy, Christian fiction book on it so it’s safe to say I’ll be spending my evenings reading before bed.

- Mao Mao has been extra cuddly this weekend and I love it. He wasn’t interested in helping me with my taxes, but he thought my pile of 1099’s made a comfy bed for him ;) 

- I’m going on my first REAL vacation in less than 3 months with my family. We are going to…Hawaii! It’s going to be so much fun! 

- I bought my first melon baller and made an awesome fruit salad as the perfect side to yesterday’s Sandwich & Chips lunch. Watermelon, Honey Dew and grapes!  

There is still a lot up in the air concerning my career and pending projects, but today I’m grateful for all the simple things in life that make me happy. :)

Nothing like a “cat nap” on a Saturday afternoon before meeting up with rachh for an early dinner.

I just cut myself on the corner of my mouth with the bread from my tomato and mozzarella panini. TGIT.

100 barbell squats just so I can keep up with the girl working out next to me.  I will regret this later.

I was going to do a Monday Check In, but my brain has been all over the place.

So for now, here is a picture of my first trip to a Dumpling House: Din Tai Fung. Food was AMAZING and I can’t wait until they open one in the OC so I can go there more often! 

I’m craving dumplings all day, everyday now. Fat kid for life.

I may have to work this first half of the day,  but I’m doing it while watching Frozen and eating a PB &  Honey sandwich!

I don’t know a better way to end this 10-day work fest than coming home to surprise flowers on my kitchen counter.  :)  #firstdayofspring

- Finally home from Vegas! I took the photo above on the drive home. Ryan and I pretty much sang all the way home so I could make sure he stayed awake.
- Today marks the last day of my 10 day work streak so I’m beyond happy. I’m going to avoid my computer completely tomorrow if I can get away with it (probably won’t happen though, but a girl can dream).
- We made over half a million dollars in sales so the Vegas show was a success!
- I slipped and fell yesterday and tweaked my back. Needless to say, a day on the couch is necessary and hopefully a trip to the Chiropractor won’t be needed. Slipping on BBQ Sauce with people watching is not fun at all. Embarrassing.
- My new addiction in Vegas is $1 Slots.  I was down to like $5 dollars so I hit max bet to get it over with and won $250. I walked away from Vegas with close to $400 in my wallet. Winner.
- My meeting in Beverly Hills that got cancelled a couple weeks ago is now rescheduled for next Friday. Fingers crossed it won’t get cancelled again. 
- Excited for what April will hold for me, but I’m ready to pretend that I’m on vacation for the next couple days.

I get to go home tomorrow… Six days in Vegas has been full of long work days and early evenings due to feeling so tired. Im thankful for the little things that keep me sane like temporary tattoos,  a glass of wine before bed and pizza. 

I’ve been getting daily cat pics from Daniel and it’s safe to say Mao is ready for me to come home too. :)
