The Haps, Take 2

February 12th, 2013

The Haps, Part I seen here.

This morning I woke up pretty early for an appointment, took my {somewhat usual} energy concoction then headed off. Ya’ll, at my appointment my blood pressure was 140/90!!! Say whaaaattt? Normal is <120/<80 and I usually run 110/70. Yes, I was a smidge nervous, but dang I’m attributing it to my morning energy mix, looks like that one has got to go!

After my appointment, I headed off to a coffee date with a girlfriend. I love local coffee shops much better than the big brands (I’m talking to you, Starbucks!). The local vibes are just so much cooler. Plus they do latte art! I got a DELISH Turkish latte with cardamom. YUM! Ever had cardamom in your COFFEE? Amazing.

My friend and I parted ways and I headed back home, but was a little shaky. Not really surprising because I usually get a little jittery after caffeine, but decided to take my blood pressure again at home. I’m in my own enviroment, not nervous, I’m comfortable {albeit, still shaky}, 136/85!!! H’ok, so there goes my energy and caffeine combo. Yipes!

Anywhoozles… aside from me making my blood pressure even higher… the other Haps these days:

I threw a bridal shower for a friend last weekend. We had delicious mimosas, yummy brunch and hilarious games. Bridal showers always bring out the funniest (R-Rated) comments. But the Bride-To-Be looked lovely, even if she got the wrong answer to most of the questions the groom answered. For every wrong answer, she had to chew a piece of bubble gum. The wad in her mouth was pretty funny (and we slightly wondered if she knew the last name or birthday… or ANYTHING IMPORTANT about the man she’s marrying ;) )

The Mister and I went to a work event a few weeks ago, got our fancy pants on and rubbed shoulders with the big wigs. It’s always funny to me people’s reactions when meeting me as Merrick’s wife. I get a lot of wide eyes and “Oh, that’s your wife?” comments. Um… do I have a booger hanging out or something? Or is my 3rd eye staring at you again? Why the surprise, Boss Man? Usually it’s because they expect my Brown Suga to have a Brown Suga-Mamma, but then are surprised to see my vampire skin. I vont to suck your bloooood!
Anyway, the Stud Hubs looked amazing and he got recognized for all his hard work. Wahoo!

Speaking of my Brown Suga, here’s the fool again at a little night out – Taco Tuesday takes away the Blues-day! Some margies, good company and delicious and cheap tacos sounds like a win to me!

Other Haps include a sweet little PreValentine’s date this past Friday. We don’t really “Do” V-day, but he surprised with a beautiful bouquet of roses.

He also surprised me with a gorgeous new work bag. My old work bag was a Swiss Army one we got for free when wedding registering at Macy’s. That was four years ago. And it’s now on it’s last leg – ripping, holes and dingy. And I’ve been eyeing bags for a while, since starting my new job and trying to pull of the “professional” persona. A ripped bag doesn’t exactly say “Professional.”

Now feast your eyes on that beauty! Sturdy, large, pretty and oh-so-professional!

So now my life is complete – coffee dates, oogling the Mister, roses and pretty bags! And now we’re about all caught up…

What’s one random thing ya’ll have done recently?

  1. That’s funny about the reactions of people! We get asked all the time how we met. It makes me wonder if we look like an unlikely couple?
