meet me half way

I can’t believe half the summer is over already! In a blink of an eye, we’re already nearing the end of July. I feel like I haven’t really done anything yet to enjoy this summer. The last exciting thing I remember doing was meeting Far East Movement, and that was already a month ago. Since then, I’ve just been working. Although half the time I’m only working 4.5 hour days, my days are actually longer because I wake up at 4:30am for work at 6am and I don’t end up sleeping until midnight. I really should start sleeping earlier.

Finally saw Despicable Me last week with my friends from work. It was AWESOME! No wonder Anna decided to see it AGAIN lol I can’t decide which movie I like more: Despicable Me or Toy Story 3. They’re both up there for me. There were a lot of parts in Despicable Me that were really cute and funny. I also loved the minions! “IT’S SO FLUFFFFFFFFFFY!!!”

Usually for Summerlicious and Winterlicious, I try to hit three different restaurants. With conflicting schedules and everyone being busy, I only managed to hit one restaurant for Summerlicious this year. My friend Tommy had made reservations for this restaurant called Trevor Kitchen and Bar. It was a small but cozy place underground. The service and atmosphere was great. I wasn’t too crazy about the food though. The lamb pastrami appetizer was pretty good, but I was mostly looking forward to the cookies & cream tiramisu (which in my opinion would’ve been much better without the raspberry sauce drizzled on it). Overall, I had a good time. It was nice catching up with Tommy since I hadn’t seen him in a while and our last Summerlicious dinner was 4 years ago.

Yesterday was a special day. Aaron, Anna, Raquel and I made plans to visit Anasha and baby Kalani after work. I can’t believe my goddaughter is almost 2 months old! Anna and Raquel had fun holding Kalani and playing with her, while I had fun taking pictures of the precious little one. We took a nice walk to the mall (Kalani’s first shopping trip!) since Anasha hasn’t really had the chance to get out much. It was really good seeing Anasha, who’s doing well and looking great. I took some nice pictures of mommy and baby after we got back from the mall. Will post them soon.

Last but not least, Far East Movement is back in town this Friday. They’re here on the All Hearts Tour with label mate, Robyn, and will be partying at Wetbar/Suite 106 after the show. So if any of you are partying this Friday, you know where the party’s at. Unfortunately, I think I’m going to pass on this event to catch up on some rest time. Been working ALMOST everyday since July 12th because my boss at the store was in NY for a buying trip. With a 13-hour workday coming up this Sunday, I’ll probably need all the rest I can get before I spend this weekend working. On the up side, I can look forward to things getting back to normal next week :)
