Anyways thursday before the dinner I took off a half day from work to go out to the beach with Shannon and Lola. We had a BLAST!! I LOVE the beach, I wish I made more time for it! Friday was good went to dinner with mom and dad which was really nice.

Today *saturday* I took Lola with me to Little Andys birthday party and Miciahs adoption party at Wannamaker County Park. It was a good time and not TOO hot outside. The water was SO nice though so it helped!! Then we came back to my house and chilled out for a couple of hours. Then it was off to Lolas birthday party at 4!! We had a GREAT time she got a TON of stuff. I was shocked at how much she got!! Anyways im off to watch a movie!! Enjoy the pictures from the birthdays!!!

Happy Fathers Day


So this weekend honestly wasn't too eventful. Friday after work I went to Mirandas house to pick up my MANGO candles. OMG they smell freaking AMAZING!!! I ended up having dinner with them, Miranda is such a good cook. We had apple chicken on the grill YUMMY!!! Then I went home and watched Twilight!

Saturday I woke up early and met up with my co-worker shawn and her kids to go to the beach. We got out there at like 10am and stayed until 12:30. I had a really good time and got some sun thank God! I need some sun! Then I went to my Aunts to eat fried shrimp, then mom and I went to Costco to shop. We picked up pictures that I got developed in JANUARY! haha it was RIDICULOUS! I felt like an idot but we BOTH forgot! They actually called me the other day. Anyways, saturday night I went to Outback with Heather, Jason, Kainen and Seth. It wasn't the greatest night of my life but I enjoyed my time with my friends. <3 them!

Today I went to Seacoast James Island AGAIN! I really like that church it starts at 10 which I love and its less than 5 mins from my house. Um how much better could it get?? EXACTLY! After church I went to get some stuff at the grocery store then spent alot of the afternoon in the kitchen with my Mom. I had a great time with her. I made a dessert called Sticky Road Chocolate bars (pic below) they were a LITTLE dry but I thought they still tasted great. I think next time Ill add one more bar of chocolate to the bottom of it so it will be more moist. I also watched the man on the moon with Reese Witherspoon in it. Its old like when she was a kid but its SUCH a great movie. I seriously cried for 30 mins it was ridiculous but it is SO good. Tonight we had our sunday night dinner/fathers day dinner! It was really yummy. I love this time with my family!!! Anyways Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!

A weekend of fun

Well its Sunday YET AGAIN!! I had another busy weekend. Friday I went over to Mirandas house. I was supposed to babysit her kids while she went to do a party lite Party BUT it cancelled. SO we went to Chik-fil-a with the kids and then spent the rest of the night talking. I was probably there for 6 hours. WOW I JUST realized it was THAT long. We had a great time though talking and watching the CRAZY lightning that was going on.

Saturday I didnt do much during the day but at 4 I went to a wedding with Seth. His cousin Denise got married, she was a BEAUTIFUL bride. Too bad I didnt get any pics of the actual wedding or even the after party. We had a good time, had a sit down dinner with LOTS of wine and then SOMEHOW his sister and sister-in-law got me on the dance floor. I NEVER dance but it was SO much fun. His family is alot of fun!!!!

Sunday I went to Seacoast JI for the first time and I really liked it alot. It was nice to have some friends MY age there. So I MAY be attending that church more often now. I need to find MY church soon. After church Kelly and I went to Walmart and then kicken Chicken YUMMY!!! The whole afternoon I spent in the kitchen with my mom. Yesterday was her birthday so we celebrated today. We had a bunch of family over!!! It was a good time. Now its ALMOST time for bed I hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Miley Cyrus

So at 10am this morning I was online buying tickets for MILEY CYRUS. I saw that she was coming to Columbia, Sc in Nov. Nov 28th to be exact and thank GOD its a Saturday. So on Nov. 28 Lola, Heather, Olivia and myself will be sitting in AWESOME seats watching Metro Station and Miley Cyrus. I am really excited because the MAIN reason I am doing this for Lola is because she will be a BRAND NEW big sister. Her baby brother/sister is due Nov. 11th. So I thought this would be a great special thing JUST for Lola. I am not sure if she will be jealous of the baby but I know it will be good for her. It will be fun and most likely we will be staying at Heathers house. BTW pray for me ill have Lola and Olivia most likely on the drive up to Columbia. haha they aren't bad I just am not used to KIDS!!! Im just glad I can do this with her. And yes her mommy is JEALOUS!! hehe But she will probably be exhausted having a NEW baby so she can't go!! Anyways I hope everyone is having a GRAET saturday. I have a wedding to go to later so I will be getting ready soon. I got some spanx im REALLY hoping they are comfortable and suck in my fat. GROSS I KNOW! haha but hey im not the first person to ever wear them!! :)

So Seth and I went to see UP last night for a "date" haha. This movie was SO cute!! And something shocking it made me cry. It had a couple of sad parts. But its basically about this old man who meets his wife when they are kids and they live their lives hoping for an adventure to move their house to Paradise falls in South America. She passes away and he ends up fullfilling their adventure with an 8 year old boy scout basically. You have GOT To see this movie. The whole balloon idea I found completely fascinating!! The graphics in this movie were AMAZING!! It was different than I expecte but it still delivered!!! So go check out this movie!! I LOVED it!!!

Weekend In Cola

Whats up people! Time for another blog and im EXHAUSTED so if it isnt a good one I apologize!!

Friday after work I headed up to Columbia to spend the weekend with two of my best friends, Heather and Jason. I got there and had to get 4 new tires!!! Thanks mom and dad. Side note: I was going to pay for them when I called to tell mom to take money out of my account because I got paid SATURDAY and bought the tires FRIDAY she told me they were going to take care of it. So im not spoiled they just love me!! Anyways after spending 2 hours at Firestone Tires, Heather and I went to the mall and then met up with Jason for dinner at Chili's. YUMMY!!! After dinner we went back to their house and SHAVED Jasons head!! Heather and I have NEVER done this before but Jason decided after talking about it at dinner to let us do it. Definitely a learning experience.

Saturday we all went to Walmart to get groceries etc. We had lunch together then Heather and I went to this awesome mall, comparable to Towne Center in Mt. P. I got my moms bday present not to mention some cute stuff for my apartment at Kirklands! Boy do I love that store. We went and did some more shopping for a couple of hours. Later that evening we went swimming and cooked dinner. I made a Oreo Cookie pie which was AWESOME and EASY!!! Jason cooked this chicken which was to die for OMG now when I go up there he has to make it like everytime. *Heather let Jason know this*. haha After dinner and swimming we played Scene It on the X-Box SOOOOO fun!!!! Oh and drinking was involved I got toasty but not drunk. VERY fun evening with Great friends.

Sunday/today we all woke up hung out for awhile then Heather and I went shopping, had lunch and got her hair cut. So I guess im the only one who didn't get a haircut this weekend. I JUST realized that. Oh well! I headed back to Charleston about 3:45 and got home at 5:30. Would have been earlier except the stupid rain!! I hate driving in the rain ESP when my windshield wipers SUCK! I got home and had dinner with the family and Seth. Can I just say Lola LOVES Seth. Shes more excited to see him than me. Yes it hurts my feelings a LITTLE bit. But thats OK! Anyways its been a LONG weekend now its time for some sleep. Have to be up EARLY for work!! Gosh I dont like Mondays!!!

This is me in the dressing room trying on a shirt. I ended up buying this shirt. Not sure if the pic does it justice but its CUTE.

Heather shaving Jasons head.

The oreo pie I made. SOOO YUMMY!!! Sinful!

Just a cool pic I took while driving home this afternoon. I liked it!!

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips or chopped nuts (optional) A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

Pour in the milk and oil and mix well..

Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.

The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT ! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?

Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

I PERSONALLY have no tried this but my co-worker did and said it was pretty good. I mean heck its only 5 mins for CHOCOLATE CAKE and cheaper than just buying it. So if anyone trys it let me know and ill be sure to post whenever I try it myself!!

Food For Thought

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone..
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
25. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ''In five years, will this matter?".
26. Always choose life.
27. Forgive everyone everything.
28. What other people think of you is none of your business..
29. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.
30. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
31. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
32. Believe in miracles.
33. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
34. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
35. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
36. Your children get only one childhood.
37. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
38. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
39. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd
grab ours back.
40. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
41. The best is yet to come.
42. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
43. Yield.
44. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

My mom sent this to me in an email today. Just wanted to share some of these are really good to read over and over and over again.

Please Pray

I can't really go into any details on this post but im asking you to Pray for my sister. There are demons in her life that she needs to get out and I know she can't do it on her own. Please pray for her that God will be present in her life and show her that life can be AMAZING!!

So my middle sister Krystal went to Las Vegas. She planned to stay at Caesars Palace and have a great time. WELL when she checked in she got UPGRADDED to the PENTHOUSE SUITE! um WHAT?? I have to admit I was wishing at that point that I had gone with her. But I currently dont have THAT much money or time off from work. Otherwise Vegas would have been in my future.

And can I just say that I make the BEST brownies ever! haha Seriously! I went to my grandmothers house after work and made brownies for desert they made sloppy joes! YUMMY! And I have to say they were AMAZING!!! :) toot toot yeah me tooting my own horn!

Oh one more thing, Has anyone watched Im a Celebrity get me out of here?? All I have to say is this show is a JOKE. Heidi and Spenser are ANNOYING and ridiculous.

Very fun weekend

Well this past weekend was a GREAT weekend!!! Thats why im posting it on a Monday when I normally post on Sunday evenings. Saturday was a chill morning then I had my friend Angel's baby shower. She actually already had Mr. Joshua James Pack 5 weeks early and he is a healthy ADORABLE baby boy!! After the shower I got a pedicure which was AMAZING. Probably the best pedicure I have ever had hands down! After that I went to Pam and Wyatts for game night! we played Trivial Pursuit pop culter it was actually REALLY hard. Considering I wasnt born in the 60's it was difficult. I got SOme of the answers right! It was fun just hanging out with friends and doing something that doesn't require extra money!

Sunday I woke up and got ready for a BOAT DAY!! It was our first trip out for the summer and we all had a blast. It was mom, dad, shannon, lola, johnna, bob, seth and myself, talk about a crew. And the Deckers were with us just on their boat. The water was a little chilly but once you got your whole body in it felt AMAZING! Lola had a GREAT time swimming with Seth. The water was so calm and it was pretty shallow it was much needed relaxation time. After about 4 hours in the boat/Morris Island, Seth and I headed to Angela and Stephens house for a BBQ. I VERY much enjoyed going over there. The guys played Bochi ball (sp?) and Angela and I chatted and cooked on the grill. It was nice to spend time with them we are all always so busy its nice to stop and just have a nice evening. I got home kinda late last night that is why I didnt post this then.

Its almost time for bed so im going to wrap it up. Hope you all have a great week!
