Marcus’s Dirty Thirty

Sometimes we never have the time we want to do the things we want to do. Marcus, one of Chris’s long time friends has been insisting on us hanging out. Even better yet, for me to meet his girlfriend, now fiance Macy (Congratulations by the way!) Now that Marcus’s was officially turning 30, his momma was throwing him a surprise party, his dirty thirty.

I was so glad that this one decided not to drive, which means we were at full liberty to get fucking wasted. It’s actually been a little while since we had the freedom to let loose, so Marcus, thank you for turning old.

¡Felicidadez!

Sheik ‘N’ Beik Monday Blues

Aaaaaah!

A girl’s date is always much needed. Boys are fun, but there’s nothing like spilling your guts with a girlfriend, especially with a drink in hand.

I had plans with Maryann, and invited my sister Julissa to come along with us. Surprisingly, I was the first to arrive, when my sister walked into the hotel, she was looking pretty cute in her little mini flowered dress. 

I on the other hand was feeling bloated, and I don’t even know why, and no, it wasn’t that time of the month. Usually I would get wine, but for some reason, I wanted beer, and that’s exactly what I got myself.

Maryann was looking soooo cute, if I could steal that skirt from her I would, every time the wind blew her thighs made an appearance!

The Jacuzzi was a nice touch to the rooftop, my feet were loving the bubbles. Of course the girls thought I was crazy for sticking my toes in, but honestly, if I would have known, I would have came in with a suit!

The view was great at first, but once that moon came out, the buildings and the lights had a story of their own to tell, it was gorgeous, the meat packing district had the perfect view for tonight.

Jaqueline’s Bubbly

I don’t understand why I keep getting scheduled to work the shittiest hours. I came to work for a simple 4 hour shift, what a waste of my time, and whats worse, it cut my day in half, so I arrived at  5pm to leave at 9…boooo…

Best thing about today was, that I had my Nikki baby waiting for me to get home. It’s girl night, and she arrived with a bottle of Rose, named Jaqueline. So of course, we did what girls do best, sip and talk about boys. Yes, of course we catch up with work, school, and that other stuff, but let’s face it, sex is the most interesting topic of them all.

It didn’t take long for us to start squirming and getting all excited because our Paris trip has just been decided. And yes, this is going to be a group trip, most of us haven’t left the country so …. aaaaah, super excited!

Nikki and I started looking at places to rent out, and what we want to do, what we want to see. Ugh, there’s so much to plan, and even much  more to save. Right now, most of us have already purchased our one way ticket there, so let’s see how we’re getting back!

I looked through all of my empty shoe boxes to finally find what I was looking for. Nikki and I ended our night reminiscing on old high school photos. Laughing at skinny we are were, and what the hell were we thinking in wearing that.

What kills me, is that Nikki and I live so damn close to each other, we’re going to have more often, even if I have to drag her out of her house to do so. (love ya!)

Pool Side w Oli

My work shift blessed me with the ability of leaving early. Oli and I made plans to catch up and I was excited. Oli and I were never really close in High School, and for some reason we’ve grown attached to the hip nowadays. I’m not complaining one bit.

We met up in McCarren Park in Wililamsburg, and waited on the long ass line to get to the pool. For the first time in almost ever, I was actually looking forward to tanning. Something I hate to do.

I feel like this summer has started so late for me, but that doesn’t mean my skin has to reflect that. Good thing Oli was prepared and we drowned ourselves in tanning oil. I felt like a chicken being rotated in a rotisserie.

It sucks that we couldn’t take pictures in the pool, but hanging out with Oli is always a breath of fresh air. i get to vent and just let out all of my frustrations. She’s like a cheap therapist…hahaha.

When we jumped in the pool, some 2 girls decided to forget what personal space was, and propped their towels directly right in front of us. How rude!  I have no shame, and moved their towel for them. She noticed, I’m sure… but she’ll get over it. I was so hype that I got a bit of sun, but now that I’m looking at myself, I don’t see it anymore…booo.

Crocodile and None

Flowergasm

How sad is it, that you have some different great locations in your hometown and you never get to experience them? So many people travel to NYC to see all the sights, buildings, monuments etc. and knowing that we have all of this beauty in our backyard and just letting it go to waste.

Oli and I met up, for our first time visit to The Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
Everything was absolutely stunning. We walked in on a sunny day , bright and gorgeous. The colors were so vivid. We kept stopping at almost every flower. When we arrived at the wishing well, I already had an idea of what I wanted.

Hanging out with Oli is always the best. We catch up on all of our boy troubles and cutesy moments. We discuss work and what’s our next moves in life.

We stopped by the gift shop where I fell with the cutest succulent (love those!) I regret not buying it. After all the walking and getting caught in the rain, it was time for what I do best…wine.

We ordered some rosé and split some sweet potatoes fries…yum!

Rocos Tacos for Jess

My boss Jess is now in a different location, but before settling in and her changing her business cards, we had to celebrate.

Rocos Tacos is known for their hundreds of tequila options, and we were just the girls to get some laughs in. Since my shift ended a little earlier than the other girls, I headed to Target on the hunt for a going away present that would be from all of us girls.

Originally, we were going to get her some office supplies, but all of her stuff is already all pink and girly.

I suggested we get her a picture frame since she’s such a huge fan of pictures and is always complaining that the frames in her office are ugly. I found a frame that was nice and white and opted into getting 2.

I rushed back to the office to pick up my huge bag and we roamed the the streets on our way to the restaurant a few moments later.

Everyone was excited, the menus were titled “Tequila Bible”, the decor was eye catching and everyone was hungry. I was stuffed since I had some Chipotle earlier, so my main focus was drinks. We ordered two huge pitchers of  passion fruit margaritas. Luckily for us our waitress was such a doll, especially when we complained there was no taste of liquor in our batch. She replaced the other and and brought out a shot to heighten the ones we were already slurping on.The food was great, as much as I didn’t want to eat, us girls are never shy about sharing. Siobhan had a huge ass plate that looked bigger than she was. Shalonda secretly ordered some shots for us to toast Jess’s big promotion, as always Damaris got emotional, and Jess was trying so hard not to cry.

I think it’s great how we all not just work together, but have become like a little family,

especially when there’s tequila involved!
