Make-up. Did I ever mention?

Did I have mention I do make up on the side? Yes, I took an 8 week program and got my certificate from Elizabeth Grady School in Medford, Ma.

Nowadays, I barely have time to do my own make up. The picture below is of my friend Julie, she was my model.

I apologize for not having the best camera, I really wish I had one that brought out what the make up really looks like.

Tonight I have a free night (no appointments, no major plans) Need to fold some laundry and just relax. I'll post more pictures in the future. Let me know if you want to see more. (if anyone even reads this)

A little stressed!

Do you ever feel like you are jungling a million things? I'm doing that and as well balanced and fair I try to be, I somehow screw up and everyone becomes disappointed with me. Like, I was feeling tired yesterday and people get mad at me because I don't want to do anything. I do a MILLION things, so get off my back.

Anyways, tonight a made myself the scalloped tomato and crouton dish that I saw on a few posts. It was pretty delish!

Hopefully tomorrow is a better day.

Free Saturday

After a crazy busy week, I actually had a free Saturday to relax and do what I want.
I had this huge craving for a cannoli. I decided, what the heck, I got in the car and drove to the North End. THis is where I stopped:

So good, I was actually eating one right out of the box as I was walking back to my car. I had powdered sugar and ricotta all over my face but I didn't care.

There are many places in the North End to get Italian pastries.

The two big rivals are Mike's Pastry and Modern Pastry.

Mike's is very good but it is more of a tourist attraction. There is always a line out the door. Modern is where the locals go. Not has busy but the wait takes sometime. Don't worry about the wait, its because they are filling your cannolis fresh when you order it. Can't go wrong there.
Anyone ever tried the two?
Well I'm going to relax for the rest of the afternoon. I may even take a nap.
Till next time.

Very Late post

Its past my bedtime. I just wanted to post my current weight as of this morning.
I weighed in at 132lbs. Not too bad but not great. I main goal is to get to 125lbs. I know its only 7 pounds but its been the biggest stuggle for me just to get under 130lbs. I know I need to work out more but I'm doing what I can at the moment. Life is keeping me busy but trying to not let it get in the way. Advice is welcomed from anyone.

I'm going to bed now before I stay up too much longer and can't wake up in the morning.

Is there a light at the end of the tunnel.

Busy, busy weekend. Had a wedding yesterday and looked at some open houses today.

Wedding was fun, I'll post pictures up soon.

I'm hoping to conquer the Videographer project this week. Hopefully, I can have this booked by the end of the month.

As far as the house hunting goes, not finding much. Its frustrating. We have been looking since March and just recently, (2 weeks ago) just got back on the wagon on this. Any advice from people who purchased homes???? I need to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Trying to eat good

I was craving chocolate between 2pm and 4pm. I needed a pickmeup so I went down to the cafe and I ate dry Honey Nut Cherrios. I felt better.

Tonight, its all about relaxing. Tomorrow, I'm going to wake up early (7:30am) and head to Spin. This would be my first Saturday morning spin class EVER and then I have an 11am appointment to get a massage at Massage Envy. Have you ever heard of this place? Basically, you are a member for 1 year and you pay $50-$60 a month and you get one massage every month. Well I am due for one so I am going to enjoy because after I am married and own a house(I'm hoping for a house) I won't be doing a lot of anything that involves dough.

Since is suppose to rain ALL day tomorrow, I'm going to take the time to do some much needed cleaning. I swear I clean all the time, I don't know how it gets all messy again.

Till later!

Hiding from Cookies

I swear when I'm on a roll with my good eating, out a nowhere a cookie turns up. Its almost impossible to resist!
So I am a member of Planet Fitness, I say member because I pay membership fees but don't actually use it. I do take Spin at a smaller place that just does Spin/Yoga and a few other classes. Since it is the summer time, I would rather run outside than go to PL to run on the trendmill. I'm not the best runner (well I am not a runner at all actually) but I'm trying to build up to it. I want to run outside but there is a heat wave going on in Boston. So hot, like don't leave your air conditioned house if you don't have to. I checked the weather and the heatwave doesn't look like it will end soon (eh). So now, I don't know what to do. I could wake up at the crack of dawn or jog at 9 at night. Usually, it would cool down at night but nope! Not this week. I think tomorrow, I'll suck it up and get my butt to PL and run on the trendmill (in AC). I've been going to spin (brownie points for me) (I shouldn't say brownie, thats fattening, I should say "Carrot points! ha)

BTW, I booked my Wedding photographer!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to stop talking about it now or else I'm going to go to bed with wedding stuff on the mind and won't sleep. Till next time...
