Arctic Zero Delight Sandwich

Dessert!I’ve been eating SUPER clean because my wedding is coming up in a couple of days. However, I really wanted to indulge myself into something delicious without jeopardizing my current diet.

I made my usual trip to Juice Adventure on Saturday and came back with flaxseed oatmeal cookies. After taking a bite, I decided to make a healthy alternative to an ice cream sandwich. To complete this concoction, I used Trader Joe’s Crunchy Cookie Butter and Arctic Zero’s Mint Chocolate Chip. If you never tried either of these products, you are missing out!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Spread the crunchy cookie butter on one side of each flaxseed cookie.
  2. Scoop a nice healthy serving of Arctic Zero (after it defrosted) onto a cookie.
  3. Place the other cookie on top of the scoop.
  4. ENJOY!

Simple, fast, and easy. I devoured this with the quickness…only to wish I had enough for seconds.

Pockets On Pockets

My order from Project Pockets FTW came in last week!

Project Pockts FTWI haven’t purchased tees since I started working for FITTED, but I’m all about supporting my friends and family. All purchases from Project Pockets will be used to assist Dustin & Katrina’s wedding expenses. The shirts are affordable and made with love; these two are MADLY in love with each other!

You can purchase your tees from the link above. If you want the pocket design on a different color tee or a different neck style, Dustin & Katrina will accommodate you! Also they can source new materials or patterns if you have something else in mind. Support their wedding by purchasing a couple of tees!

Of course I requested the Hello Kitty Pocket tee in black…trying to be a bit manly with HK,

Apologies!

Sorry for the extreme lack of updates! Between working for a new company, working for FITTED, and finalizing all the wedding stuff, I’m exhausted! I’ll have some updates soon with a couple of DIY projects and stuff about life.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend…Stay hydrated my ninjas. It’s hot as a mutha in SD right now.

DIY: Mason Jar Vase

DIY: Mason Jar Vase

 

With our wedding coming up, the Wifey has been spending a lot of time working on DIY projects. If you’re trying to save costs and have a specific look in mind, we highly suggest making things on your own. Not only do you have the final say in everything, but you actually know what you’re getting.

Here are the items needed for this  project:

  • Mason Jars (you can purchase the jars in a package from Target)
  • Chevron burlap
  • Twine
  • Hot glue gun

DIY: Mason Jar

 

Here’s how you achieve the look:

  1. Cut the burlap to the size of the jar.
  2. Use the hot glue gun to put some glue on the center of the jar.
  3. Wrap the burlap around the jar and then seal the ends with some more glue.
  4. Wrap the twine around the center of the jar (this will help hide any of the excess glue).

There you have it folks. A quick project for custom vases.

Gundam Age-FX

SDSorry for the lack of updates these past couple of days, I’ve been busy with my new job…good busy that is!

Anyways, I finished the Gundam Age-FX kit a couple of weeks ago and finally got around to posting it today. I actually really enjoyed making this kit, but it also took a lot of time. I didn’t follow the color scheme exactly like the box, but I was stoked with the outcome.

Paint used:

  • Metallic Blue
  • White
  • Chrome yellow
  • German Grey
  • Aqua blue

Last Day

LastDay

This past Friday was my last day as a Senior Systems Engineer. I spent 2 years, 7 months, and 5 days at the company. I took this job solely because of money. I was 24 at the time, so the amount of money I was going to make widened my eyes.

For the past year I started to reevaluate my life. I made good money, but I had zero interest in the company and zero passion for my job. I did my job well, but I wasn’t happy; it wasn’t my calling. I was blessed to have this job, but I literally hated being here. I never put myself above the job, but I was putting in so much time and work that my relationships and personal health were deteriorating. There wasn’t any appreciation from upper management. I was working hard, but for what? No raise, no interest in the company, and the same pay for the past 2 years and 7 months…I needed change. I missed marketing. I needed to get back into marketing and leverage my creativity and personality. 

It wasn’t until 2-3 months ago that I started to go on interviews. I had a lot of interested parties, but none of them grabbed my attention except for one company. I wanted this job bad! I knew I could learn a whole lot from the company and also contribute a whole lot as well. This job was basically my calling. It suited my style and personality. From the first interview to the second and then waiting for that phone call, I was at the edge of my seat.

When I finally got that call, I almost cried; I got the job. I jumped, yelled, woke up the wifey and cheered together. Everything fell into place. After feeling like I sold out for the past couple of years, I was finally back on track to following my heart. This was my step to a new beginning, a new and better me.

The lesson that I learned through all of this was to follow my passion. If you’re not passionate about what you’re doing, then why stay? Majority of the people will tell you to follow the money and just take the job, but how happy are those people? The money was nice, but at what expense? Passion is what ignites you; money is only temporary.

My advice is to never let anyone tell you what to do. Follow your passion and dreams. If anyone brings you down and tries to stray you from your own path, maybe you need to leave that person behind. In the end, it’s your happiness, not anyone else’s.

Live your life and do you boo boo.
