Friday Five (6)

Posted March 11, 2016 by Rowena in Features | 1 Comment

Friday Five Today’s five things are just random thoughts and recaps from the past week. [1] First off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY HENRY! Today is my brother’s birthday and I hope he’s having an amazing day! [2] Brenna and I had dinner with a close family friend and it was so good to catch up with her. Brenna is close with Lilo and we haven’t seen her in months because she’s got the travel bug and is always out of town. We had a nice dinner, caught up with each other and made plans to keep in better touch. We also tried the Monkey Bread Pazookie at BJ’s and holy shit, that thing is amazing! [3] I’m a nerd. My book club is meeting on Monday and I have spent this week preparing the discussion and…I made a test. I hope everyone read the book. Haha. [4] Work has been a drag this week, not because I’m hating my job or anything like that. There’s this one co-worker of mine that annoys the shit out of me. Her laugh makes me want to punch her throat in, her constant complaining and bitching makes me want to kick her in the cooch and just everything about her makes me see red. I can’t wait to not have to see her everyday. [5] Sunday is Meghan’s birthday so….

I’m so ready for this week to be done.

Friday Five (5)

Posted February 26, 2016 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

Friday Five This week’s post will feature the five movies that I’m looking forward to watching.
[1] Me Before You.
I read this book for book club last year and it destroyed me for a good two weeks. I laughed, I cried, I happy sighed and then I ugly cried. I didn’t think that I would want to see the movie, knowing what happens in the book but after seeing the trailer…screw it. I want to see it. How can I pass up Finnick and Khaleesi? Like Kenna, this movie had me at Ed Sheeran. 🙂
[2] Allegiant.
I’m here for Four. I have always been here for Four. I’m not even mad about what happens in the book. All I care about is Four. I’m definitely watching this movie.
[3] Suicide Squad.
This one looks good. It looks funny and action packed and just right for what I’m always in the mood for. I’m in.
[4] Deadpool.
I’ve heard a lot about this movie. Some good, some bad but it’s Ryan Reynolds so I’ve always been interested in watching it. So this is on my to be watched list.
[5] 13 Hours.
Well would you look at Jim Halpert, all sexy and shit. I’m way interested in watching this movie because it looks good, it’s based on a true story and it features a whole bunch of hotties. I’m sure there are more but these are the five that stand out for me.

Friday Five (4)

Posted February 12, 2016 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Friday Five Lots of things to catch up on but this week’s Friday Five are very random things on my brain right now. Pioneer League Champs
[1] Brenna and Cheridan are Pioneer League Champs again.
Last night was the last League game and North played against South. I didn’t attend this game because let’s be real here…it wasn’t going to be an exciting game. I knew that they were going to win this game and they did…61-46. Congratulations to the North High Girls Basketball Team for going 20-0 in League play for the last two seasons. GO SAXONS! Bay League Champs
[2] Makenna is a Bay League Champ again.
This was the game that I went to last night. It was rivals night and we were the visiting team. For some reason, it’s always a hard battle when Redondo plays Costa. Maybe it’s the rivalry at play or something because this game could have gone either way throughout the entire game. Redondo was down by 10 late in the game and I was nervous as shit but during gut check time, Redondo pulled it together and got that W that clinched the League Championship for them. Ken played well and made my night when she walked out of the gym, flipping Costa off. She hates that school just as much as I do so this win was freaking fantastic! Gilmore Girls Reunion
[3] Gilmore Girls Reunion.
Gilmore Girls Reunion show is a go and most all of Rory’s ex-boyfriends are on board to return. This makes me so freaking excited! Team Logan…seriously. Rugby 7s
[4] Rugby 7’s Tournament in Vegas.
I have made plans to go to Vegas this year for the 7’s Rugby Tournament and this is the main reason why: 425108-sonny-bill-williams I can’t wait! Luke_Kobe
[5] Lakers New Coach Rumors.
I’m hearing a bunch of rumors and theories on where the Lakers coaching for next year is going and I’m so ready for a coaching change. As much as I loved Byron Scott as a player, I don’t love him so much as a coach. I don’t think he has the right pieces to run the game that he wants to run and because he won’t run the kind of offense and defense fit for the team he has, we suck. On the other hand, if Luke were to come here and run the same kind of game that he ran with Golden State, I think we’d have better success but we have a lot of young players so would he be able to lead and guide and grow these kids? I don’t know that I have that kind of faith in him…but whatever changes next year, I hope it’s the coach and not the team. I hope we keep our core players. I’m high key tired of losing. Until next week…have a great weekend guys!

Friday Five (3)

Posted January 29, 2016 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

Friday Five It’s been a while since I’ve done a Friday Five post so I’m bringing the feature back with five things that made me laugh on Facebook this week. FF-1
[1] This Friday Movie Picture.
Brenna is a person of guilt when it comes to this. She used to say, “Bye Felicia” all the time but she’s never seen Friday so she didn’t get why she said it. But I’m sure there are white people who are guilty too. Haha. Cali Winter
[2] Winter around the country.
I saw this picture last winter and it made me laugh, seeing it again this year still makes me laugh like a crazy person. It’s my favorite part of winter too.
[3] The dummy that tased himself.
Haha, this guy has given me plenty of laughing time over the past couple of months. Every time I need a laugh, I look for this video because seriously…how dumb is this guy? Bwahahahaha. 379574_10151638421244911_1156484805_n
[4] Stop, Drop and Roll with the Rough Riders.
I first saw this on this guy’s FB that I used to go to high school with and I immediately started singing along with the diagram because hahaha, it’s awesome! 1654024_1040966062593135_5081488090646814402_n
[5] Asking for directions.
This is all me. All the time. So there you have it, the shit that I’m laughing at this week and every week, basically.

Friday Five (2)

Posted December 4, 2015 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Friday Five I took last week off from the blog because I spent it with the family for Thanksgiving so this week’s Friday Five will be a random catch up session.

Meg 112415
[1] The Comeback Kid is Back!

Meghan is back in action on the basketball court and she’s in season. She’s playing at El Camino College and she’s got, I think it’s 3 college season games under her belt and she’s lighting up the stat sheets. It’s been really great to see her playing again. She looks strong, she’s playing well and she’s made the Daily Breeze (our local newspaper) Blog consistently so I’m happy for her. She’s got plans and she’s got goals and the exposure is a great way to accomplish those goals and plans. Go Meg!
Wilson Gang Thanksgiving 2015
[2] Team Wilson Gang Thanksgiving 2015.

Thanksgiving this year was at Blanche’s house and we had a good turn out. Ingrid, Chloe, Markus and Chach came in from out of town and we had a good Thanksgiving. We had too much food, leftovers for days and loads of laughing. Chach had an interesting weekend while she was in town and as a family, we laughed a lot at her because that’s what we do. Haha. We also spent some time at the cemetery with Mom and Seko. All in all, it was a good holiday for us and I can’t wait to do it all again at Christmas.

[3] Brenna’s Got a Concussion.

Last week at practice, Brenna got elbowed so hard she saw stars. Literally. She was playing defense against one of her teammates and like Smokey from Friday said, “Got knocked the f*&%ck out!” Haha. So she’s not playing right now. She got cleared to play from the doctor so hopefully she’ll be back on the court soon…cause her team needs her.

Basketball
[4] Basketball Season Has Started.


Basketball is my favorite sport, I like the way they dribble up and down the court…haha. Redondo’s Battle of the Beach tournament kicked off this week and all of the games from here on out count! As of right now, both of my high school teams are 1-1. North lost to Troy on Monday and Redondo lost to Winward on Wednesday. North battles it out with Long Beach Poly today at 3:30 and Redondo plays Harvard Westlake at 6:30. Go Lady Saxons and Seahawks!


[5] Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake’s CMA performance.

This song, actually this performance has been getting a lot of play time at work. I can’t stop listening to it. I’m obsessed. Justin Timberlake is the man! Apparently, so is Chris Stapleton. Mulu, Chris has written a lot of our old country jams. He wrote Your Man by Josh Turner!
