Happy Birthday

TO ME!!!! Today I am 23 years old! How exciting right? Well nothing really exciting about turning 23 at least I havent figure it out yet. :) But regardless it is MY birthday and thats just good enough. Unfortunately I have had to work today delivering mail in this crappy weather. It's dreary outside but luckily NOT raining. After work im going to pick up Kodie and go to my parents house for Birthday festivities. Really its just hanging out with the fam with some food and some yummy cake! :) Mmm Chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream. YUM YUM!!

Tomorrow I am going out with Angel and possibly some other girls. We are going ICE SKATING! WOO!! I love ice skating and how exciting because Angel has NEVER done it before. I tell ya she is truely becoming one of my very best friends. <3 I think we are doing lunch and barnes and noble with the skating. Dinner tomorrow night is the traditional Hoppin johns (sp?) EWWWW! But mom makes me eat them every year. Does anyone else have to be forced to eat that stuff?

Anyways I hope you all have a very safe and happy New year!!

<3 Sara

PS My Christmas post will come tonight. I have no internet at my apt so I have to wait until I get to my parents house to update. :)

Meet Kodie

So I guess I got my Christmas wish after all. His name is Kodie and he is a Boston Terrier Mix. Im hoping the vet can tell me what he is mixed with on Saturday.

I went to Columbia this weekend to see The Shults family and yesterday morning looked on Craigslist and saw this bundle of joy. He is 7 weeks old and never been to the vet but seems healthy to me. Lola is actually the one who named him and I thought it was just a really fitting name. I hope to soon have better pictures of him but its hard to take a picture of a puppy who only sleeps. :)

Last night he was in his crate all night and woke me up 3 times which isn't bad. Kelly said he was REALLY loud today so I hope the neighbors dont completely hate me. But I want him crate trained and this is just how it will be for a few days I guess. It will be worth it in the end. One of my old friends used to use a kong with peanut butter in it so I might try that too. We shall see I just hope I dont screw him up. haha I have little faith in my parenting skills. But I have plenty of people giving advice. So if any of you have advice do share!

THEN I am spending the night at my parents house. You know I have not slept there since July 30th. HOW WEIRD! Kelly stays at her parents house a LOT for some reason. lol but I have for some reason just haven't. I mean theres never really a reason I live 20 mins MAX from their house. But I am excited to stay there tonight. Although I am NOT excited to pack... lol yes ONE night but I have a LOT to bring. Sad Sad!!

One more thing! I have this friend Adam who lives in Spartanburg. He knows some dog breeders for BOSTON TERRIERS! They already had puppies that would be ready in January. OMG if the price is right I am SO THERE!!! I have seriously been dreaming about a boston terrier for MONTHS. So im crossing my fingers that I can afford it! :)

Christmas Tree Time

Last night Shannon, Lola and I went over to my parents house to decorate the tree. They had lost the stand thats why it is just now going up. But its all up and pretty. We had a good time decorating and the tree has a TON of ornaments on it. Lola enjoyed getting to put them on and some of them ended up on the floor. I don't think they are broken just maybe chipped a little bit. After decorating the tree, Shannon and mom went to publix. Lola and I made some Cinnamon muffins and watched lots of Phineus and Pherb on Disney. You know that show is actually quite cute. I still LOVE the Disney Channel. I doubt ill ever grow out of that one. Plus they have awesome movies.

I am SO ready for Christmas around work to be OVER. I swear I have gained a thousand pounds lol. There are always cookies, doughnuts, cakes, fudge etc. Its killin me mainly because its mostly all homemade. You can't turn down homemade ANYTHING. Ok I can't. Ill be happy when this part of Christmas is over. :)

If I don't blog again before Christmas I hope you all have a VERY Merry Christmas.

<3 Sara

Prayer Request

Please pray for my new niece Isabelle she has RSV and is really sick. We are hoping she gets over this rather quickly and with no complications but she is still so young. Please just keep her in your prayers. Lola just got over Bronchitis and I think Shannon is getting a little head cold too. I just hope they are all feeling good Christmas day. That would just stink if they didn't.

BTW the pics below Kayce (KDS Photography) took a few weeks ago. I meant to post them but I have been SO slack lately. I'm going to attempt to be a better blogger. Enjoy these two beautiful girls! Kayce you really do an amazing job!! I seriously can't wait for a reason for you to take my pictures. :)

<3 Sara

Ps. My birthday is December 31st and im TRYING to think of ideas as to what to do for my birthday. Every year its so hard because its a semi holiday lol If anyone has any ideas let me know!! I want to do something FUN!

Thinking of....

SNOW SNOW SNOW!!!! The last time I saw "snow" was like 5 years ago but it was machine made snow. The time before that it was probably when I was in middle school. I WANT TO SEE SNOW!!! LIKE REAL SNOW! My aunt Christine has been living up near the DC area for over a year now and she sent me a ton of snow pictures. I wanted SO badly to go put on a coat and go make snow angels and just play! :( sometime soon I must travel somewhere and see the real stuff. Not FAKE snow!! So I went playing on google and found these BEAUTIFUL snow images. I seriously just want to jump into these pictures! Heaven!!!!!!

<3 This song

Kari Jobe - Revelation Song Lyrics @

Worthy is the, Lamb who was slain
Holy, Holy, is He
Sing a new song, to him who sits on
Heaven's mercy seat

Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come
With all creation I sing
Praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything
And I will adore You

Clothed in rainbows, of living color
Flashes of lightning, rolls of thunder
Blessing and honor, strength and glory and power be
to You the only wise King

Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come
With all creation I sing
Praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything
And I will adore You

Filled with wonder, awestruck wonder
At the mention of your name
Jesus your name is power
Breath, and living water
Such a marvelous mystery

Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come, yeah
With all creation I sing
Praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything
And I will adore You

If you google the song by Kari Jobe you can listen to it! I love this song! Its just so beautiful!

My Weekend

Well its Monday AGAIN! *sigh* However, it is Christmas week which is really exciting.

Friday, work was SLOW then I headed to my parents house to see them before they left town. WELL, the rain was ridiculous all day. There was flooding like everywhere. They decided to head out of town Saturday morning early because the weather was SO bad. But they went to a Christmas party so I decided to head home. Well that was all fine until I was literally STUCK on James Island. 2 of the 3 exits were closed by cops and I didn't want to go through the country to get home. So I had a good visit with my grandmother and my aunts. When I finally was able to leave it took me 45 mins to get home. RIDICULOUS!!!

Saturday, I went shopping with my 2 aunts. They spoiled me a little which I was completely fine with. Saturday night I started my fudge making. I made 2 batches of fudge, wrapped the rest of my Christmas presents, Drank hot chocolate and watched 2 Christmas movies with Kelly. I would say it was a rather festive evening.

Sunday, Church was GREAT!! The series Pastor Chris is talking about is Forgiveness. I have gotten past a couple of things that I had been holding onto. An ex bf I forgive, an ex friend, other situations I forgive... Just the situations im over it and ready to move on with life 100%. I have honestly loved this series. Last week it was about forgiving yourselves for whatever it is that you haven't forgiven yourself about. God died for our sins and forgives us so we should forgive ourselves. Anyways, After church I went home (parents house) and enjoyed time with my family. Mom and I got A LOT of her gifts wrapped. The boys even hung out with us!! BTW did I mention I made 3 more batches of fudge! haha ridiculous!!

That's pretty much my weekend!! Can't wait for Christmas oh and my birthday is 10 days away!!!!!!!!!!! Ill be the big 23! :)

<3 Sara

My tree FINALLY with presents under it!

SOME of the presents I wrapped with Mom. Theres more!

The boys had to help us! It took a couple of tries to get a GOOD pic!

Fun Saturday Evening

So last night was definitely not what I thought it was going to be. I had planned to go to see New Moon and Go to an improv Theater but had a change of plans. Shannon and I went to see New Moon half way through she got REALLY sick with a bunch of pain. So we had to leave she was almost in tears. So we get out to the car and shes HURTING so I take her to St. Francis ER but they were packed and her pain sorta went away. So we headed to Mt. P to East Cooper her preffered hospital. We were there for about 3 hours she had a ct scan and turns out its just an infection that she can take meds for. So I saw HALF of new moon *cant WAIT to see the other half* and didnt go to the improv. But im just glad shes ok but we had fun watching movies and eating REALLY bad dinner in the hospital. lol Pic below of my dinner!

tilt your head lol

a little update

I really wish I could get creative with the titles to my blog. Lol Oh well I am just not really creative!!

Not a whole lot has been going on lately. Just working and working out with Angel. Her and I are becoming very great friends. She has been such a positive person in my life. <3

Yesterday I took the day off and did ALL my Christmas shopping. 8 hours with my Co-worker. We stayed in Mt. P and I got some GREAT deals. Then last night I went out with Angel and Kelly to Kicken Chicken in Mt. P and went bowling. Kelly didn't bowl because of her arthritis but Angel and I did. WE SUCKED!!! We never broke 100 she got to 99 though. I just did aweful!! Then Kelly and I came back home and watched a movie then I watched one before bed. I went to sleep around 2am!! CRAZY! I hardly EVER stay up that late, In fact I get joked with that im a grandma!

Today im going to have a GREAT day!! Im going to see New Moon with my sister. I can't wait I have heard its awesome!!!! THEN im going with Kelly and my friend Damien to Theater 99 its a comedy place downtown. We are going to see The have knots improv comedy!!

Its begining to....

look a lot like Christmas.

The Christmas tree I decorated at work. It's not in my office its in the mailcenter. I don't have enough people come through my office for me to put up my own tree. Although I do have some snowmen lights up.

This is the tree in my apartment. Kelly and I actually have had this tree up since the begining of November. We were feeling very festive VERY early this year! We have more decorations up and ill probably post pictures of those later.

Yesterday I got to help mom put up their front porch decorations too which was fun. Although it was COLD. I need to learn to put the flip flops AWAY once it starts getting cold. They are just so easy to put on. I wore them to the after Thanksgiving shopping and that was also a big mistake. lol im surprise they didn't turn black from the frost bite. That definitely makes me think of Mr. Deeds (the movie).

Hope you all are getting into the Christmas Spirit.

Cola weekend

Besides the Miley Concert this weekend we did do some other things. Sunday we woke up and headed out to the zoo. It was a nice sunny day outside and the kids had a great time. Lola kept saying Aunt Sara thank you so much for bringing me here I love it. lol that warmed my heart a little bit. She honestly loved our little trip. We had Olivia with us too *shes 5*. After the zoo we went to cici's pizza for lunch and then headed off to Target. Love that place spent too much money... I have this addiction called shopping. I get it from my mother lol Im hoping it will go away since im kinda lacking in the money situation. Anywho around 4:30 I decided I would leave Cola to come home. Yeah well traffic had another plan for me so I turned back around to let it die down. So Heather and I went to Old Navy *bought nothing* and then to Wal-mart she needed groceries. Around 7ish I decided to try the whole leaving Cola thing AGAIN. Got 2 miles past 77 and 26 interchange and it was already stopping and I was getting tired. I have discovered im not very good at night driving by myself. The girls do NOT count as company lol. So we ended up staying in Columbia last night. Since we were staying Heather and I took the kids back to the zoo for some christmas lights deal. It was ok not that wonderful but not that bad either. Heather and I ended up visiting someone last night too which made me very happy. Im starting to really like this guy *totally freaking me out* so we shall see! I just don't know how I would like the whole long distance relationship deal *if/when it gets to that*. We shall wait and see! I had breakfast with that someone this morning so that was nice. Lola approved haha it matters! Anyways I am SO glad to be back home!! This was an exhausting trip mainly because there were kids involved. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Back to work tomorrow! Its weird but I missed being at work today... I must be sick!

Enjoy the pics!!

<3 Sara

Miley Concert

Here are some pictures from the Miley Cyrus concert this past weekend. You know I was honestly a bit disappointed by her show. I thought she would have been a better entertainer but she really just wasn't. But the girls had a great time regardless so that made me and Heather happy. Enjoy the pics!!

<3 Sara

Saturday, November 28, 2009


At 7pm tonight we are seeing this chick right here and her brothers band Metro Station..

Im pretty excited because I dont think Lola realizes that shes going to see the real Miley like in the flesh. And we have great tickets from what I can tell on the internet. I just hope they don't give me issues since I lost my cc downtown and had to get it replaced. They do a ticketless concert so you get in with your cc. Well I called they said it shouldn't be a problem. Lets hope its not because that would just freaking SUCK. So pray for us! Oh and I have a car full so pray for me... Sara doesn't have A LOT of patience lol Im scared!!!

Well another Thanksgiving has come and gone like a flash. This year was really nice and spent with alot of family. Including our new baby Isabelle. I <3 her!! I hope you all enjoyed your time with your family as much as I did. Oh and I got to see a special Sgt so that made the evening nice. Watched Ghost Rider with Nicolas Cage... didn't really like it. Anywho below are some pics from our fabulous Thanksgiving day.

*Dad I need more pics of you*

This morning SOMEHOW my co-worker Shawn convinced me I needed to wake up at 3AM and go shopping with her BEFORE work. Ugh!! NEVER EVER EVER EVER again!!!! Mark my words UNLESS I have the day off. We went to Belk *got an $80 pair of boots for $15 not bad!! Then we went to Target and I got Lola's xmas present and some movies. Shawn had a shopping cart FULL in a matter of 5 mins!! CRAZINESS!! But overall it was fun!! Tonight I got to see my friend Pam who just moved to Texas in July. I have missed her and her family SOO much!! She is truly a great friend and I am so glad her and I became such great friends. I REALLY hope that maybe once I have some money I can fly out to Dallas and visit them!!

Tomorrow I am driving with a car FULL *me, Heather, Kainen, Lola, Olivia and Heathers dog* to Columbia. We are headed to the Miley Cyrus concert! Lola is really excited and im not going to lie im a little excited myself. I like Mileys music so don't hate! lol Im sure ill have plenty of pics for my next post.

Have a wonderful weekend!!
