Sleepyti.me Calculator

Lately E and I have been going to sleep late, like midnight late. That's totally not like us. We normally go to bed around 10-10:30 PM. Going to sleep late means dreading to get out of bed the next day. I wake up at 5:30 AM in order to be at work at 7 AM. My drive is roughly 30-45 min. Yeah it kinda sucks but if there's no accidents, my drive is pretty smooth. I should mention that due to going to bed late, I've been getting out of bed later and later... making me late to work.. SMH! & srsly motivating me to play the Texas Lotto... yet I still don't..


Anyways, I checked my email this morning and saw an email from Netted by the Webbys. I've been receiving the newsletter for a couple years now. Every now and then they have sites or apps that I've never heard of but are extremely useful to me. Kind of like today..

'sleepyti.me works by counting backwards in sleep cycles. Sleep cycles typically last 90 minutes.
Waking up in the middle of a sleep cycle leaves you feeling tired and groggy, but waking up in between cycles lets you wake up feeling refreshed and alert!'

If you think about it, it totally makes sense. If you know what time you have to wake up, it'll tell you different times to go to bed that would be more fulfilling to your busy cabeza and exhausted body. I'm going to see if falling asleep at the times it told me actually work for me.. Not tonight though cause it's Frrrrriiidaaaayyy!! & I have a three-day weekend because E's 30th birthday is Sunday. ;]

You should try to fall asleep at one of the following times:

8:30 PM or 10:00 PM or 11:30 PM or 1:00 AM

Please keep in mind that you should be falling asleep at these times.

The average adult human takes fourteen minutes to fall asleep, so plan accordingly!

So that's what it told me, what did it tell you?!

Happy Friday & Have a great weekend!!

..till next time ;]

Thrift Finds 5.0

Thrift Finds
Old Kool-Aid Box Honduras Feather painting Not really sure what this is.. Obsessed with cork boards Little frame Panama Board I've always liked this script.. NL1 NL2

  1. Old Kool-aid box for $6 Too rich for my wallet.
  2. A painting on a feather from Honduras for $2 I think this is going to look great on my wall.
  3. Not really sure what this is. Looks like a divider with book covers glued on it.. -shrugs-
  4. Massive framed corkboard. Looks like it was originally a picture frame and someone added the cork board part. Not mentioning how much I paid for it LOL! Not a really good job LOL, but I can make it work. I think I might be a bit obsessed with cork boards :/
  5. Take a little time to do whatever makes you happy picture frame for $.50 I bought this with the idea of using the picture frame alone, but it's kinda grown on me..
  6. This Panama wood board was pretty cool looking. It was hidden behind some crappy frames. Didn't like the pricetag of $26.
  7. Pass through life picture frame for $1. Really like this script. Might clean it up a bit or just remove the script and put it in another frame.
  8. This slate was mined in Pennsylvania and floated down the Ohio and Mississippi River on rafts. Later used on a New Orleans roof for $3. There were a couple of these, but I chose this one because it was chipped at the top right Definitely hanging this one in the living room.
Linking up with Young Heart Old Soul and A Living Space.

Thrift anything sweet lately?!

Roller Derby Chicks Kick Ass!!

#InstaSize #crashzone #blackandyellow #uhoh #dangerzone #icandothis #houston #rollerderby

Every third Saturday of the month, the Bayou Music Center hosts the Houston Roller Derby. Guess who got to attend her first show?! Yup, you got it.. me!! I didn't know what to expect. I mean, I saw a couple videos on Youtube but that's not the same. 

Before we went in, we made sure to buy koozies and tshirts to support all the ladies! :] We saw two badass games. The Bayou City Bosses vs. The Psych Ward Sirens and The Valkyries vs. The Brawlers.  Both games were super entertaining. During the first game we were a bit confused.. by the second game we had most of the rules down. We will definitely be attending more games. If you decide to check this out, make sure you get there early if you're not getting VIP tickets. It's basically first come first serve and if you've got someone tall in front of you you're kinda SOL. For the second game we were right in the crash zone. I was a bit worried but nothing major happened. Lol!

The next day we went to the Boneyard Drinkery like most Sundays and ran into one of the refs from the game. Small world huh?! He explained the game a bit more and told us about some of the players..like Freight Train (picture above) She is a beast! Fast and coordinated like crazy! She's definitely one of our favorite jammers!

Visit the Houston Roller Derby site and check out when the games will be on. I swear you'll have a great time. These ladies are ruthless skaters and sweethearts off the track. Also, Houston Roller Derby has started Co-Op practices. I think it'll be interesting and maybe a bit dangerous, but I'm still down to watch it.

Don't forget to visit the Boneyard Drinkery for some awesome furkid time with great beer/wine and awesome food truck action. 

How was your weekend?!

One of those mornings..

#InstaSize #gmorning #goodmorning #starbucks #frap #vanilla #wakeup #espresso #caramel

I've been going to sleep really late lately.. I'm talking midnight or later. It's quite sad when I think about it cause I love sleeping, who doesn't?! Normally I get a smoothie from Smoothie King with energy but my coworkers voted on Starbucks this morning. I've been trying to stay away these amazing frapps cause umm.. my stomach doesn't like me too much after one of these but sometimes ya gotta do whatcha gotta do Lol!

How do you snap yourself out of sleep mode on those mornings where the bed feels fantastical?!

..till next time ;]

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine, as usual, was full of awesome food. I hope my metabolism never changes cause the way I eat daily is ridiculous Lol!

Fraiche Mobile Kitchen
Do you see that photo of fantastical nomnoms?! If I had to eat a food truck for the rest of my life rather than a restaurant.. I'd be completely down for that. I think it's a combo of the delicious plates, the sweet prices, and I rather support a small business owner then a big time restaurant. I know some folks that will not eat from a food truck no matter what they serve. I hear all sorts of reasons - It's dirty, the food isn't fresh, I don't like waiting in line, and my favorite.. There's no where to sit and eat Lol! I've never felt sick after eating from a food truck, in fact I think I've felt sick plenty of times from fancy restaurants. Not to mention the service isn't always great whereas the service at food trucks is awesomesauce. The food is definitely fresh, just taste it!! Lines are everywhere, man up and taste the goodness already! Food trucks aren't suppose to have a table and chairs, you're lucky if they do. Again, man up and stop your whining. K, I've ranted long enough on food trucks...

I like going to the Boneyard Drinkery, Houston's first bar/dogpark! They always have food trucks and yesterday Bernie's Burger bus was there until 5pm and Fraiche Mobile Kitchen rolled up behind it. My husband and I are big Bernie's burger fans so we ordered a burger and brisket fries from them before they closed shop. An hour later we were in line at Fraiche's truck to order more food. Lol! We can't help it, we love to eat! The picture above is what we ordered at Fraiche - Carnitas Hash which is Carnitas, tater tots (which I can eat everyday), veggies, onions, and the best part (IMO) cilantro sauce. Above it is Crème Brulee french toast with maple syrup - How can you possibly say no to that?! Lol! K, enough about food ;]

Idk if you're familiar with Wendy at Young Heart Old Soul (if you're not, get on it people!!). Her Monday post has this fantastic quote..
 For me, Monday represents a fresh start to the week. It is the day where the slate from the previous week is wiped clean. It is a day of new beginnings. ~ Unknown
Bloggers Anonymous
Really, really like this quote. I think it suits us all and it's a good way of looking at the beginning of the week since we all kinda dislike Monday! She also has a link to a new site called Bloggers Anonymous. What is Bloggers Anonymous you ask?! "Bloggers Anonymous is a new site dedicated to building up other people. We want to hear all the good things you have to say about other bloggers!" I think it's a great place to receive positive feedback and we all love having our egos stroked a bit. Check it out and share it with your blogging friends!

My friend Jessica shared this the other day and it really got me thinking.. Hope it does the same for you..

Happy Monday! :)

10 random things about me.

1. I curse A LOT.
2. I smoke Camel Blues - Don't judge.
3. I love to drive & wish I could do more road trips.
4. If I could eat tacos everyday, I would.
5. I've been watching Grey's Anatomy since the first episode.
6. I wish I knew how to draw.
7. I finally opened a Spotify acct and love it.
8. I love M&M's but not much of an Eminem fan.

10. I really need a new layout on my blog :/

Weekend full of Cars!

Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled
MECUM Auctions at Reliant

MECUM Auctions at Reliant
Chevy NOVA - One of my all time favs!!

I went to two events this weekend that were all about cars. I love oh-ing and ah-ing at cars and D, my camera, doesn't mind the work! Saturday morning I woke up early for Coffee and Cars at Vintage Park (Tomball) It was introduced to me as Cars and Coffee but the site says the name the other way. All I know is that it was fantastical. It's nice to see families out there walking around. Father's with their kids, super excited. People bring their dogs and there's vendors - all from 8am - 10am. It's not a close venue for me so that means I had to wake up early on my off day :/ It was well worth it though.

Later that day I hit up the MECUM Auction in Reliant. My husband's best friend's father owns MuscleCarsofTexas.com and had a couple cars in the auction. I've never been to an auction, I've seen it on TV. Better yet, I've flipped by the channel when it was on TV. LOL! It was pretty cool to be up close and see the cars, hear the auctioneers and see how excited the crowd gets. I would have taken a lot of pictures there too, but they're a little picky about what you can and can't take pictures of. I snuck in a couple of some cars that I liked.. like the Bel Air. I didn't notice it until my husband mentioned it to me, but I have a thing for Bel Air's LOL! Idk what it is about them, but I like them, more the station wagon looking ones :]

If you want to see the rest of the cars that I took at the Coffee and Cars event, please visit my flickr page.

How was your weekend?!
