Whew! May is gone? Where did it go? I feel like I didn’t even notice May (my wall calendar still says March, smh), but when I started looking through the pix on my phone, I realized that a lot has had happened this month! There were weddings and bachelorette parties, trips to Austin and Galveston, more Houston floods, and lots of other activities. So here are a few of my favorites from May.
FAVORITE HOME ITEM
I always tend to grab hot things with my hands, which causes burns and blisters (hey, at least I manage not to cut my fingers often when cooking, unlike the rest of my family, hint-hint). I also struggle with opening jars, and even plastic juice bottles ever since they made those caps smaller. Good for the environment, but not good for my hands. But I finally have a solution in form of these silicone gloves!
Peonies are my favorite in May! They always bloomed right before my birthday (which is in June btw!) and my grandmother would cut a fresh bouquet each year. I also enjoyed running around the garden collecting colorful beetles that would bury themselves inside this gorgeous flower. This makes me very nostalgic.
iPic theatres are slowly popping up everywhere! If you’ve got two crumbs and some change in your pocket, this place is not for you. But it is a fun experience to treat yourself to every once in a while. I took a Monday off from work after the Mother’s Day had passed and spent a day with my mama. When we first got to the theatre, at noon, on a Monday, we were quoted $56 for two movie tickets in Premium Plus section. But then I remembered that I had registered online a while back ago, and they re-quoted me the same tickets for $36 + 2 free popcorn tix. Still not a cheap movie experience, but better than $56. The Houston theatre is very cool and has a lot going for it. The best part was that my mom and I were the only ones at the showing :)). We got some drinks and acted a fool the whole time. 🙂
Dmitry convinced me to take my bike for a ride around the city. As you may remember, I just learned to ride a bike at the age of 26 and until now I stayed in the neighborhood and was too scared to venture out on the streets. Well, I finally did it, and it was so much fun! Of course I panicked the first couple of times we had to cross the street, but after a few crossings, I was OK with it. MS150 here I come! :))
