Just Me........Randomly........It's Christmas Time

It has been a whirlwind since last Wednesday. I took off Thursday & Friday but today I am really feeling the results of running the streets non stop....................

Thursday was the Birthday of my best friend Kim. We took off work & spent and epic 12 hours together.  We started off at the Breakfast Klub for some Chicken & Waffles and  Katfish & Grits. We then headed over to the Urban Oasis Spa for massages & facials. We shopped in Rice Village, had lunch and went to the Galleria. I got to meet her boyfriend's daughters for the first time when I took her home. His daughters & her daughters bought a cake & gifts awaiting her.

Getting ready for some pampering !

Friday night I hosted a Happy Hour for her and we had a wonderful time at Peli Peli in Vintage Park.

The Birthday Girl

Me and my love

After the "Party" her guy wanted to have an "AFTER Party" so about ten of us ventured to Midtown to go to Bar 5015. We had a blast. My girlfriend's new man partied like it was his birthday & was paying for it the next day. LOL

Getting it in ! LOL

Saturday me and Mr. Mixologist had to do some more Christmas shopping. For some reason, he changed our initial plans to stay put, so now we are heading to my sister's home at the end of the week and will be joined by my parents. When I made the calls in the car, they were soooo happy. I missed last Christmas as we were with his family.

Saturday night we had two confirmed parties to attend. And though I was exhausted ......the party don't stop. First stop, Tarsha who blogs at THREE FOOD WORDS has been celebrating her Birthday this month. The DJ she had was out.of.control ! I didn't get to spank anybody in Taboo like I planned LOL. We had to leave early to get to our next event, but not before taking some shots with the Birthday Girl and Tiffany in Houston. As usual I was given some cupcakes for the road. Tarsha is the Hostess with the Mostest. I tasted them today... the Lemon flavored ones....pure goodness !

Bottoms Up !

The last stop was a Housewarming Christmas Party at the home of another girlfriend. She made a wonderful Gumbo and the decorations were lovely. We didn't stay too long because I wasn't feeling well. Just my body's response to DOING.TOO.DAMN.MUCH !  LOL

Celebrating Christmastime

Sunday, I slept in late. I still wasn't feeling well at all. But I had to pull myself together to do some Holiday Baking and help Mr. Mixologist wrap the gifts for his niece and nephew so that he can get them shipped first thing Monday. He is such a sweetheart. He nursed me back to health. He cooked breakfast, made me some hot tea, got my meds and even went to the grocery store to get all the ingredients for the Gooey Butter Coffee Cake that his family raved about last year. I was able to get them made & I can tell he was very appreciative since we won't be with his family this year.

I am still not feeling 100% but I gotta pull myself together this week to get all these last minute things done & get ready to travel at the end of the week.

I am enjoying the holiday season and am 90% done with shopping. Getting ready to travel at the end of the week so I am getting excited. Happy Holidays!

Ooh I am so jealous. With the way I am feeling this morning I WISH I was 90% done.

Wishing you travelling grace.

Love the pics and captions, especially the photo of your friends getting it in. Good times, definitely.

Chicken & Waffles, Catfish & grits, my kind of breakfast since childhood.

Class act.

Hmm. Not finished shopping, but will be on Thursday. No travels, whatsoever. Headed to New Orleans on NYE and to stick around and catch the Saints game.

@ Don
I'm exhausted but it was worth it.

If you ever come to Houston, you MUST go to the Breakfast Klub !

Have fun in NOLA that is one of my favorite cities.
