Friday the 13th...WooHoo!


Hello Friday! And Friday the 13th of all days. I know that the number 13 gets a bad rap, but I like the number 13. Why did it become "unlucky" anyways?  Well, I Wikipedia-ed it :)  

~ One theory states that it is a modern amalgamation of two older superstitions: that 13 is an unlucky number and that Friday is an unluckyday.
~ In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of divine organizational arrangement or chronological completeness, as reflected in the twelve months of the year, twelve hours of the clock day, the twelve deities of Olympus, twelve tribes of Israeltwelve Apostles of Jesusthe 12 successors of Muhammad in Shia Islam, twelve signs of the Zodiac, the 12 years of the Buddhist cycle, etc., whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, transgressing this completeness. There is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the Last Supper or a Norse myth, that having thirteen people seated at a table results in the death of one of the diners.
~ Friday has been considered an unlucky day at least since the 14th century's The Canterbury Tales,[5] and many other professions have regarded Friday as an unlucky day to undertake journeys or begin new projects.
~ Christians commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus on the Friday before Easter.

Very interesting! I like today, so there! It's the last work day of the week and I get to see my fabulous Best Friend tonight! I hope you all have a wonderful week.  This week felt particularly long, but it's finally the weekend. Here we go ~

On Friday I got to hang out with my brother.  We had dinner at this fun little Irish Pub and then went to see the new Tom Cruise movie, Edge of Tomorrow.  We had a great time.  Jacob was having some work done in his apartment due to some major flooding, but he needed to stop by and pick up a few things.  His life was centered among the kitchen...Literally! The work finished up late last weekend and he has been able to put his life back together!  You never really know how much stuff you have until it's confined to one space.

Talk about a "Throw-Back-Thursday!" I was going through some pictures and found this one from 2009.  I was living in Los Angeles at the time and there was a karaoke bar that I liked to frequent.  Mr. Belding was also a pretty common face at this bar. Oh, it is called Dimples and is across the street from the Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank.  If you're ever over there, then you should definitely stop in and sing a tune. Cheap drinks and fun people!

My coworker, Nay, was a little ircked with me that I didn't bring her back some coca-cola lip balm from vacation. Well, I found something even better for her!  She's a Pepsi drinker and when I was at Target I found Wild Cherry Pepsi Lip Balm. I had to buy it for her. I put it on her desk so she would see it when she got in on Monday and boy did she love it! Yay! Love you Nay!

Last night was our big client event at Donovan House.  The hotel was recently renovated and we wanted to show it off to our clients. One of the big draws of Donovan is the rooftop pool/bar.  Well, the weather was super icky and we were really worried about getting rained out.  The rain held out for us during the event and it ended up being pretty fun!  We had raffles and food and open bar for everyone.  Ro and I decided to take a selfie and our Director of Operations happened to be right behind us. We allowed him to photobomb :)

I'm getting ready for my first Work Trip Ever!!!!! I've never traveled for work before and I'm really excited.  I'll be in Arizona next week for our National Sales Meeting and it's going to be so much fun.  Oh, this pool is at the hotel I'll be staying at. Jealous? :)  There are themed parties (Studio 54 on Monday and Rock 'n' Roll by the Pool on Tuesday). Don't worry, I'll tell you all about it when I get back!

Have a great week everyone! I'm linking up with these fabulous ladies below for some Friday fun. Make sure to check them out. Oh and if you're not following me on Instagram (1hotredhd) or Twitter (@Looking2Stars), you totally should!
