#77 - Go see a band in town (again)

Last night I went to Sherlocks to meet up with Monica, Kara and Emily. I wasn't going to go out (feeling lazy) but decided what the heck! We sat outside for about an hour before heading inside for the band and I introduced the girls to an Australian Snakebite (my fav!). mmm, mmm good! The band that was playing was LC Rocks! This is one of the best 80's bands in Austin. I had a great time singing along and dancing up a storm. We also got pretty lucky with the free drinks, compliments of the guys at another table. Woohoo! Brandy showed up a bit later as well as a couple girls from the 22 Penny Crew. It was so much fun I didn't want to leave, but alas I had class the next day. ;-)

Oh!  We also saw a group of people there from the Austin Sports and Social club.  Kinda funny since I have that on my list as well!

#15 - Cook at least one home meal(s) a week

Last night I finally cooked a home made meal!  It's been forever since I've done that.  Now I don't order out food every night or anything like that...but the majority of the time I make a frozen meal or pasta or grilled cheese or something really easy (which I don't tend to count as "cooking").  So after work I decided to hit up HEB and gather ingredients to make my chicken & wine dish!  I love this dish, it's a childhood favorite.  I procured fresh bread, salad, rice pilaf and fresh chicken breasts.  This dish is actually very easy to make which is one of the reasons I like it. ;-)  What a wonderful smell as the chicken and wine aroma wafted through my living quarters.  I topped it all off with a glass of wine, company, and a brownie for dessert.   Plus now I have leftovers for the rest of the week.

#77 - Go see a band in town

Last night Monica, Brandy, Thura, Sarah and I went downtown to watch this band BoomBox at Lucky Lounge. We started off the night at Jeff's house and played some new Band video game he had just gotten that day. It was pretty cool, you have a guitar, drums and microphone and you sing at concerts. I sucked at the singing so I just sat back and became a fan. Then we headed down to Lavaca Street Bar and had a few $1 Tecates and a buttery nipple shot! Around 11:30pm we finally made our way over to Lucky Lounge, apparently the band never starts on time. ;-) BoomBox started playing around 11:45pm and they were actually pretty good! They even had a pretty good horn line. We hung out there for about an hour then visited Red Fez...but it was lame so we left. About 1am Brandy, Monica and I realized we were hungry and decided to head for Wendy's. Ahhh, a burger after all those drinks really hit the spot. I was home and in bed by 2:30am! It was a great night with the girls (and Thura)! :-)

Night out on the town

#3 Play Paintball

Today I had an offsite with my co-workers. We went to Xtreme Paintball in Manor, TX and battled it out. It was so much fun! I have always wanted to try Paintball but had never gotten around to it. Well today I did it! I came out fairly unscathed. I managed to get away with only 2 bruises/welts....the worst one landing on my left cheek. :-P I would definitely do it again! It was great team work, exercise and stress relief!

Hello world!

Welcome to


lol, everyone gets the same Hello World posting from wordpress.

A couple of my friends starting doing this and I thought it would be a great idea as well! Finally something to motivate me to do all those things I've always talked about doing. So today I start the 101 in 1001 challenge! The challenge is based on Day Zero! Hopefully I stick to this and can think of enough things to do! Any suggestions? ;-)

I’m still working on my list as you can see - hopefully I’ll be up and running soon! And I need to figure out how to use this thing!

Maybe I'll also make a list of all the things I've already done (such as skydiving, wake boarding, rock climbing, rappelling, etc...)!
