A bunch of randomness..

You know I really don't know what the deal is with me. I think I'll be good at blogging again.......then I don't post for a few weeks


I guess because since graduation my life is pretty boring now. I mean all I do is work it seems. Work. Church. Hang out with Josh.

Not alot of pics have been taken :-\ I need to start taken pics of stuff around the house!

Yes...must do!

But speaking of pics...

Family pics are today.

So I get to drive an hour one way just to take pics....what the crap??? lol oh well I do get to see my family.

Tonight I'm cooking dinner for Josh (for the record we are just FRIENDS...we are not dating in any way shape or form :-p ) and then we're shooting off fireworks!! Why??? Because we can :-)

Another random thing...

I can't believe it's been 7 months since:

I mean WOW! 7 months since I was just a college student. Time has flown so fast!

Now just some pics that make me smile:
1) Me in my happy place - amidst a pile of scrapping stuff
2) My goofy brother and me :-)
3)My awesome bestest friend in the whole wide world, Josh!!
4)At college graduation with my bro and sis...this pic defines our relationship LOL

Visions, rEVOLution March, Sun Burnt, Tired

Yeah...the title basically sums up my last week! I'll just bullet it for everyone:

Monday-late Wednesday Night
-Conference in Atlanta
-Promoted to manager!!!!!
-Learned and came up with my vision statement

-Worked a little and helped a couple of clients out which always makes me feel good :-)
-Frantically got ready to go to Washington D.C. on Friday EEK!

-Ran around like a chicken with my head cut off getting ready for the Ron Paul Campaign for Liberty Revolution March on Washington D.C. WOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-Got the rental vans with the help of my awesome manager!
-Left with 19 dedicated patriots to march on D.C.!!!!

***side note***
A little side note about the March:
One of the most stressful moments of my life! This arrogant jerk who is technically the "leader" of our meet-up group decided LAST MINUTE that he wanted to come to the March that Josh (who is basically vice president of the group) was in charge of organizing the WHOLE time...he knows that Josh is WAY better leader than him but it was a power struggle the whole time with me literally almost punching this guy in the face....yeah fun times. Other than that the March was great

-After driving all through the night we got to Washington D.C.
-March on Washington!!!!!!!! (see later posts for pics!!!)
-7 hours in the hot HOT sun which resulted in some sun burn, dehydration, and a few people passing out
-About 15,000 people were there to March!!! WOOO!!
-SAW RON PAUL HIMSELF!!! omg I was freakin out! lol I was about six feet away from him if even that
-Listened to alot of other speakers like Naomi Wolf (who was AWESOME) and some other speakers that at the moment I have forgotten their names :-\
-After March drove all the way back to Florida again

-After almost punching Adam (the arrogant jerk) in the face and struggling for all of us to STAY TOGETHER (really how hard is that GEES!!!) we finally made it back home in Florida
-Exhausted, sun burnt, tense from all the stress, horrible blisters on my feet and my body is like "WHAT?!?!"

So was it all worth it????

HECK YES!!!!!!!! later to come :-)

I like this quote...something about it just reminds me to live every day to the fullest

(fyi in case you can't read the wording it says "nothing is worth more than this day")

So update from previous IHOP today. It was PACKED. A disadvantage of living in a beachy tourist town on the 4th *sigh* but it's ok. We went to one of those local Ma and Pop breakfast places and it was GREAT!

So plans for today??

Well right now I'm watching my FAVORITE Disney Movie:

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie!! and I haven't seen it in FOREVER! so time to enjoy :-)

Happy 4th

Well hope everyone's 4th was fantastic :-) First year I haven't seen fireworks lol It was a huge chance of rain over here so we didn't feel like going out. I came over and stayed with my was good seeing them along with my bro and sis. It's weird being officially moved out because my brother has TOTALLY taken over my old room lol now he has TWO rooms! Ah the joy of being the youngest the little goober :-p

Huge advantage of being home though - free food! We're all going out to IHOP in a few minutes for a brunch. WOO HOO!!! I love their pancakes!!!

After I'll probably chill for a little then go back home and work on my curtains (almost done!!) and also work on this awesome canvas for my house. I'm excited to see how it turns out.

Yeah I haven't posted pics in a while so when I get home I'll have to post some.

Well IHOP time!!!

I'm back!

Well hello blogging world!!! It's been THREE months since my last post! Good grief!! Can't believe it's been that long!

Since so much has happened since my last post I'll just bullet point everything:

-Moved in to my house (LOVE!) and it's in the process of being decorated. Pics to come soon!!
-Work has been going well, God has been so good. Received four awards so far! Praise the Lord!
-Going to my second conference for work on Monday in Atlanta. Pretty excited because it's kinda like some time off from work lol
-Ron Paul rEVOLution March next weekend! OMG I'm so flippin excited! About 15 of us are driving up on Friday afternoon, driving all the way to D.C., March (See Dr. Ron Paul WOO HOO!), then turn around and come back. It's going to be draining but can't wait to make history!!

Yeah the reason i haven't been blogging is I've just now been able to get internet at my house so hopefully I'll be blogging more as well as scrapping! I've missed it so much but decorating my house has been a blast! Can't wait to post some pics!

Now to go browse around some of my favorite blogs!!

Tuesday, April 01, 2008


Ok so by far my favorite designer of all flippin time is Elsie!!! I've been looking at her Etsy Shop and I absolutely love her paintings! I'm definitely going to get some to put in my super cool scrap room that is in the process of being designed as we speak lol


good grief! It's been FOREVER since I've blogged! To be honest part of it is due to not having computer/internet and the other part is because I'm just so dang LAZY! *slaps hand* bad blogger!!

Anyhoo :-) It' s been so long since I've blogged I'm just going to give bullet points:

-loving my new job! Praise the Lord I'm doing really well!!!

-just found a place of my own *finally* to move in to and guess what! IT'S A HOUSE!!!!! and it's such a nice house too for an astounding price of rent. Oh and I'm hoping to do it as a rent-to-buy thing. HOW FLIPPIN COOL IS THAT?!?!?!??!

-going on my very first business related conference trip on Monday! Going to the ATL (Atlanta for you non-southern people :-p ) It'll be interesting to see how it turns out but I'm excited to get some awesome training!

Overall things are going great. I'm SUPER excited about getting a place of my own and implement all of my decorating ideas!!!! I also can't wait to start growing my own garden and what not. It's gonna look super cute I just know it lol

Anyhoo that's all for now! I'll post pics as soon as I can!

Today's the day!! is the day I'm finally moving to Pcola! OK, so it's not officially to a place of my own yet but hey it's at least in the right geographic location lol one step at a time

So as I was packing up last night I got online to look at some pics and I got a little nostalgic of friends I left in Tally *sigh* So I'd thought I'd share some of my memories that make me smile and laugh :-)

Such a bad blogger!!!

Good grief it has been FOREVER since I've blogged!! So horrible of me :-(

So I'm in need of alot of updates:

First of all I GRADUATED!!!! WOOOOO!!!!!!!! lol even though the day of graduation was rainy and humid (thus my hair looked like CRAP) it didn't dampen my spirits and I was so happy to finally be DONE with school!

So immediately starting job hunting which was an ordeal on its own but I got a job with Bankers Life and Casualty so I've been working on getting my insurance license and training and WOW life has been a whirlwind!
One thing I have learned about the "real world": NOTHING IS FREE!!!! gees everywhere I turn it costs money for EVERYTHING! Fingerprints...license..exam...license application...exam study materials......good grief I think the Department of Insurance in Florida now owns my soul and rights to my firstborn child :-\

lol but other than that I'm super excited about finding a place of my own and actually stepping into this huge next step in my life. Oh and finding a place has been an ordeal too...gees...but it amazes me how God takes care of His children. Things just kept falling through until this past Sunday I was in Ladies Prayer group and I asked that we pray for me finding a place and afterwards my Sunday School teacher's wife came up and said they have a huge house (they have like 6 kids or some large number like that lol) and they have two rooms available and I'm welcome to stay with them for awhile!!! PRAISE THE LORD! I almost wanted to cry because of how God has provided. Lately I've been having to drive an hour one way to work stuff and the gas has been KILLING me! Now to mention my church is an hour away too....

and speaking of church...I joined Victory Baptist and I now have a church family!! May the Lord forever be praised because for the first time I feel like I'm at HOME! The church is just amazing---one of your good ole Bible-believing, soul winning, sound preaching independent Baptist church :-) Already I'm involved in choir and another ensemble and I am just loving all of this. I can't wait to officially be moved over and settled.

So now I'm in the process of packing up some of my stuff so I can move in with that family tomorrow! EEK! lol things are happening so fast I've barely had time to catch my breath! But God has been showing me time and time again how He does provide and meet my needs and I love Him so much for that.

I gotta say, I don't know how people who don't know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior go through huge life changes like this. There have been several times I've been close to a nervous break down because money being tight and everything going on, but Jesus just reminds me how He has promised He would take care of me and how he'll "never leave me nor forsake me." Praise the Lord!!! :-)

Alrighty, that's all for now. I'll try and keep up with this blog more now that things have kinda settled down lol
