i love friday!

I am beyond excited that it's Friday! Not only is today payday [thank goodness. i just found out this week that $5 worth of gas does not get you very far!] but its the start of a beautiful weekend! I don't really have any big plans, but I think C and I will be going to see Iron Man 2 and to an afternoon Dodger game, which should be fun!

My sweet friend, Belle on Heels, tagged me to do the 8 Things game! I love reading these on other blogs so I hope some of you enjoy getting to know a little bit more about me.

8 TV Shows I Like to Watch
I am obsessed with this season of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villians, The Amazing Race, Top Chef Masters, Chefs vs. City on Food Network, MTV's The Challenge: Fresh Meat II [seriously, so amazingly entertaining], NCIS: Los Angeles, Bones, and Glee.

[currently my FAVE show on tv]

8 Favorite Places to Eat and Drink
I love to eat. It's pretty much my favorite thing, like ever. I plan all of my days around my meals and you better believe all my trips are planned around where to find the good food. Some of my favorite places to eat and drink are: Ladyface Ale Companie, PF Chang's, The Buffet at the Bellagio, Sonic [for the cherry limeades and tater tots!], Chick-fil-A, California Chicken Cafe, Chipotle, and Blue Dog Beer Tavern.

8 Things I Look Forward To
I have big plans in the works for a late summer vacation, but am not quite ready to spill the beans. So other things I look forward to are seeing my family again, gas prices going down [they have to eventually, right???], the day when I don't have to work anymore, finishing up my Master's degree, having money in my checking account TODAY!, settling down and living the American dream, and seeing Martina McBride at the OC Fair in July!

8 Things That Happened to Me Yesterday
Thursday was a boring day, but let's see...I got honked at in busy L.A. traffic,
I finished a paper for my N*ew Products Management class,
I turned in a jury service completion certificate to my boss [missed work Wednesday due to being at the courthouse from 7:45 am until 4:15 pm, just waiting for my name to be called to a never happened],
I made grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch AND dinner,
I put $5 worth of gas in my car which by the way, in California, only got me 1.5 gallons,
I loaded the dishwasher,
I returned a belt to H&M after work, and
I watched Survivor [I'm soooo mad at Candice!]. Yup, pretty boring day....

8 Things I am Passionate About
Umm...this is going to sound horrible, but I haven't really found what I'm "passionate" about in life. I like baking, but I'm not "passionate" about it. I like to exercise, but again, not "passionate" about it. I wish I could say I'm involved in a charity or volunteering, but I'm not. I do love my family and friends, hiking on the weekends, capturing memories, and making the best out of life.

8 Words or Phrases I Use Often
I'm always abbreviating everything so instead of seriously, I say "seri", instead of asking if someone made reservations, I ask if they got the "rezzis". Yes, annoying but I'm cuuuuute! :)

8 Words I Have Learned from the Past
I've learned a lot and I still have a lot to learn: in the past, I wasn't a very good friend and many of my friendships have ended because of my lack of determination to keep them going. I have cried over countless boys, only to discover they weren't worth it. I used to be a horrible driver, but it's best just to slow down and be cautious. When you don't pay things on time, the late fees are hard to swallow and it just sucks to throw money down the drain so just pay on time. That's only 4, but they're lessons well learned.

8 Places I would Like to Visit/See
I would love to visit Australia, Fiji, and Thailand. I'd like to go back to Switzerland, Key West, Hawaii, Korea, and San Francisco [love that city!].

8 Things I Currently Want/Need
I want an IPHONE!
I need more money so I can pay off my state and federal income taxes.
I need quarters to do laundry.
I need to make a grocery list for next week's shopping trip.
I want to get a massage.
I need to go to the gym.
I need to pick up my prescriptions from Target today.
I want the work day to be over so my weekend can start!

8 Bloggers I Tag
All of my readers! But I'll warn you, this thing takes a looooooong time to do!

Wishing everyone a happy weekend!

I am absolutely obsessed with California Chicken Cafe. I could eat there every day. It's addicting & so fresh! lol
BTW you are adorable with your abbreviated words. I say "pressies" instead of "presents."

Black Labs and Lilly said...

I did this today too and was blown away by how long it took, I thought it would be quick and easy!

Love the part about the late fees, its so true that in the long run its easier to pay stuff on time, a lesson I wish I had learned earlier too!

This tag was a lot more time consuming that I expected, but it was fun to do. I still would love to get caught up on Glee. Everyone raves about that show.

The Buffet at the Bellagio is pretty amazing and I also really like Chipotle.

I enjoyed your list of lessons learned and I want and iPhone too.

Have a great weekend. I think we’re going to wait until next weekend to see Iron Man 2. I can’t wait to see it though!

I love watching Survivor! I feel like I don't know anyone else who watching, so I'm glad to know that I at least know one other person now.

Oh my gosh... you're SO cute! Do you really say seri? Love it. I might start saying that. I say "You're Welc." I got it from the Kardashians. :) I so miss you.
