MIMM: How did I get senioritis?

Guys, I have senioritis. This is appropriate too because I’m over my own classes…

So this is what I’ve been doing to make it MARVELOUS.

After not painting my nails for months…

Perfect weather for some green juices.


…and sushi (or a Samurai Burrito).


Fundraising gala with teachers… I thought this was appropriate after wine and 2 Moscow Mules at the hotel bar, Fireside.


In the morning, I headed to Venice Beach.



Muscle Beach


Abbot Kinney, which is one of the coolest streets ever. Lots of shops not as many bars or restaurants though.



We had to head home though, but I stopped by for some pizza.


Ice cream with my cousin


I tried this brand at the Natural Products Expo with some kombucha. I immediately grabbed a bottle to mix with lime-flavored sparkling water when I saw it at the store. Austin, Texas is so hip.


Because summer is here, I’m planning a Cinco de Mayo housewarming party.


Baron is home! We finally picked him up from my aunt’s house.


Now I can use the hashtag #dogsofinstagram


Sunday was spent decorating:

String lights are so hard to find when it’s not winter.


Funky flamingo and cactus from Party City and $1.50 paper lanterns from Daiso.


I also picked up some paper tissue flowers. I only made one but finally made use of my empty Cheerwine bottle and washi tape (from Target).


A Cinco de Mayo party wouldn’t be complete without a colorful banner. This Bud Light umbrella also appeared at the house (from my uncle) and a folding table “for parties (thanks mom!).”


IMG_4894I considered buying this but wasn’t sure if it would be culturally appropriate.


IMG_4895I’m already looking forward to my nap today… 🙂

Do you have senioritis or spring fever?

Five Things Friday: Spring Fever

Hi everyone! Popping in to say hi. It’s very late and I’m up because I took a nap, I’m watching “Bones,” and I have some homework to do and I just can’t stop because I won’t have time this weekend.

5 things I’m doing this weekend

Trying the free trial of Barre3.

Fundraising gala tonight

Watching “Moonrise Kingdom.” I was looking for pictures – every scene is postcard-worthy as this post states.

There’s talk about going to Malibu & Hollywood this weekend 🙂

Homework #fml

Plan a sushi-making party

…and if I ever get the chance to make a dish soap dispenser from a mason jar, this is how I want to do it.

Homework, kind of.

Drink a few [read: 3] beers and sing “Just A Friend” and “Cooler Than Me” with two random strangers.

Gush all over tall mountain of a man. Uh, so was every 21 year old girl.

Get observed by my college supervisor, which went perfectly. The students were angels.

I told the class to introduce themselves.

“Hi, I’m ___ and I like cats.”
“Hi, I’m ___ and I’m a typical Mexican.”
Me: “What does that mean?”
“I like soccer.”
“Hi, I’m ___ and I’m a common white girl – I like Starbucks.”

Haha. What one thing would you say?

MIMM: Spring Break 2014!

So the days have pretty much run together. I didn’t expect spring break to actually be SPRING BREAK! What I mean by that is, I got NO homework done… and it was MARVELOUS. This isn’t something I would do all the time because by Sunday, my body hated me… then I got my sweat on and some coffee and am getting back to some responsibilities (homework).

Monday – Class 😦


  • Worked all day
  • Taco Tuesday with other Julie & a new friend but no tacos to speak of. Instead, we went to The House of Blues at Downtown Disney, drank too much, and had way too much fun. 🙂


  • Corona del Mar to walk on the jetty



  • Late dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings (naked tenders with salt and vinegar seasoning!) with some guy friends.


  • Worked a half day
  • Bought an Apple TV and set it up!



  • Friends came by the house to drink wine and play flip cup.


Best picture ever…



  • Slept in while relatives came over for a housewarming party.



  • Girl date part 2: dinner and another beer at Provisions Market. I ate a whole freaking sandwich and I didn’t care. It was good and I didn’t feel bloated.

(photo from their Facebook because I didn’t want to be creepy on my girl date)

I cleaned up for my girl-date. 🙂 Although this dress is less attractive in person cause it doesn’t support my booty.


Post-girl date


And this is what I’m left with…


And hey, one is not like the others.


If you get spring break or some sort of week long vacation, what do you do?
I definitely need to get back to some normal foods…
