Here is a little random post for ya...

This past week has been busy busy! First off I had Monday off for Presidents day. That day is actually now memorable to me because 3 years ago I got my trailblazer. First car that I was paying for so you know a big milestone in my life. BUT this Presidents day will be my favorite because my little Baby Ray was born. Her name is actually Navaeh Luray but I call her Ray. You know I have to be different from everyone else. She was 6lbs 10 ounces and such a cutie. And she has really precious curly hair. Once I get rid of this little head cold thing I got going on I plan to visit and take better pictures.

So yesterday I went with the boyfriend to buy a truck. He was test driving the one below and I LOVED this truck. I have never in my life LOVED a car/truck/suv whatever but this truck I absolutely loved. However, it was going to be like $400 a month and it got 10 miles a gallon which is freaking NOTHING. Oh and it is a diesel and seeing as how gas prices have gone up this truck just wasn't happening. But he ended up with a truck I am pretty sure he realy likes.

On the way back to his house we were driving down I-26. He was on his phone and I was looking around next thing I know I see a girl hit the concrete barrier and flip her car. I am pretty sure my jaw dropped. She ended up upside down but she was OK. You know the typical bumps and bruises im sure just a tiny bit of blood nothing major. She is LUCKY I tell you that nobody hit her. But since the BF is a deputy sheriff and does fire rescue on the side he threw the truck in park and rushed to the scene. I stayed inside, I am not one to handle things like that very well just incase things were bad. I did however call 911 for her. I was appauled it took 911 almost 2 freaking minutes to answer the dang phone. I was like well dang I am glad I am not dying right now. Of course at that time I didn't know the condition of the lady who flipped her car. I really think something needs to be changed about that. insane!

Hopefully this weekend I can get a better post together since last weekend was really nice and I took a good bit of pictures.

5 ? Friday

Ok so obviously it's been a week since my last post. I have had a lot go on that it totally blog worthy. BUT my computer at home hasn't been working. So I am waiting for that to happen so I can post pictures too not JUST words. Words alone are boring! haha So hopefully soon I can have some more posts up. Until then.... we bring 5 question Friday!

1. Can you drive a stick shift?

Nope. I tried to learn with an ex bf one time. But the fastest I went was 10mph. I would hardly say thats an accomplishment.

2. What are two foods you just can't eat?

Collard greens are disgusting HATE them. GAG!

Chicken Parmesean I think I spelt that wrong. Oh well! So this one I actually used to LOVE LOVE LOVE that was until I got food poisoning from it. I ate at Fazolis on a Wed night and within I would say an hour at most I got SO sick. So between wed night and Fri morning I lost 10 lbs.... HORRIBLE experience. GAG GAG GAG!!! \

3. Do you buy Girl Scout Cookies? What is your favorite kind?

Well I always try not to buy them. In fact I think I have only bought them once in my entire life. But I LOVE the thin mints and the peanut butter chocolate ones. Not sure the name of them maybe tagalongs?

4. How do you pamper yourself?

Pedicures and massages. Granted this does not happen all the time or anything but I splurge now and again.

5. What is your nickname and how did you get it?

Don't really have one. My sister went through a time where she called me scaramahara thats how it sounds doubt thats how you spell it. haha but it never stuck! Sometimes I get called Sara Lynn or Sara Lee at work... but nothing exciting I promise that one.

5 Question Friday

1. Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row?

I am sure that I have. Obviously I can't really think of the specific outfit off hand. I know I wear the same jeans a lot.

2. If you had to choose any LARGE city to live in, which would it be?

This one is tough. I haven't been to too many "big cities". I have been to NYC and while I did LOVE it, I don't think I could LIVE there. I too much enjoy living on an Island going to the beach whenever I please and being able to do things you can't do in the city. And Lord knows I wouldn't want to DRIVE in one. My road rage would sky rocket!

3. Fly or drive with the kids on vacation?

I don't have kids so honestly I don't have an answer. But for me PERSONALLY I prefer flying unless its somewhere 8 hours or less of a drive. I like road trips but I get antsy after awhile of being in the car.

4. What is your idea of "spring cleaning"?

spring cleaning? what's that? ;)

5. What is the best book you have ever read?

Oh gosh see this is HARD. I have read a LOT of books that I love. Obviously I loved reading the Twilight Series as most women have. I also read a series called Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts which was AWESOME. AND every book I have ever read by Shiloh Walker I absolutely LOVED. So I can't just pick one book. Now after answering this question I feel the desire to go read which I haven't done in almost a year! I got burnt out I read like 12 books in a couple of months so it's been AWHILE!


No thanks...

Back in August my cousin Scott who just graduated from Clemson University in the Spring got accepted for a job at The Wall Street Journal. I couldn't have been happier for him. I figured though it would be a very serious job you know one where you are on your P's and Q's all the time right? I mean MOST people would assume that. But back in December he came to Charleston for a visit and we got to talking about his job. He definitely gets a lot of work done and stays busy but apparently their office is nothing but a big group of jokesters. Much to my surprise of course! Well you know I just went by what he said and moved on...

WELL yesterday morning I signed on to facebook and see pictures of a tin foil office.... I surely figured it was something he found randomly online and posted on his fb. WElll........ no him and a co-worker got together and spent 2 hours putting tinfoil ALL OVER some girls desk. They literally put tin foil on EVERYTHING! haha I about died laughing and then felt sorry for the girl who had to clean all of that up.

He said they even did the paper clips! haha I am shocked it only took them 2 hours... It would have taken me FOREVER! Just thought I would share some of the craziness!!

Top 2 Tuesday

This weeks Top 2 Tuesday is your top 2 favorite Grammy Dresses. I picked 3 of them because I really just couldn't choose. I also added in the last one simply because I think it is quite possibly the worst dress I have ever seen. It for some reason reminds me of the old movie Mermaids with Cher haha

1. Keri Hilson: I abosolutely LOVE this dress. Of course I would never in a million years wear it but it looks great on her. The color really looks great! All around good choice for her!

2. Jennifer Hudson: I must say she looks great. I know she has lost a bunch of weight on Weight Watchers and truely looks stunning! I love this dress too it's sexy but not like OVERLY sexy.

3. Jennifer Lopez: After having twins shes had to have had some surgery there's no way she could look THAT tiny! Well I guess there is a way but come on it seems crazy to me! In the end though I think she does look great and the dress seems really fun!

and lastly I leave you with Katy Perry.... I just don't know what to say except what was she thinking?? She is a beautiful girl so why the heck did she choose to wear THIS?? I just don't get it.... It's almost like something you would see Lady Gaga wearing except Lady Gaga would make this 10 times crazier!

Warning this is GROSS

This right here is why I always need to remember to bring extra shoes to work. Just in case I have to deliver mail.... yup today was one of those days I wore my NON mail shoes and got stuck doing mail. Can we say OUCH??? So just a reminder to everyone always have an extra pair of shoes in your car! This is the back of ONE of my heels. I have blisters on other toes and the back of my other heel. Probably won't be wearing real shoes tomorrow. Which won't be a big deal since the weather is supposed to be gorgeous AGAIN! This weekend the weather was breathtaking. I absolutely LOVED it. I took some pictures of Izzy out on the beach yesterday. But my computer wasn't working last night so I have to wait to upload them. Seriously cute though!

Sorry for grossing you out!

Happy Valentines Day

I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Valentines Day! I hope it is special and everything you hoped it would be! I added some fun images just because I felt like it :) I love the Owls and the Fishie!

ALSO, I wanted to wish my Mama a Happy Birthday! I miss her everyday but I know I will see her again someday. And I just love this picture of her and my Papa. I am unsure of how old it is but its definitely OLD. My mom found a bunch of old pictures in December to put in one of those electronic photoframes for my Papa and this is one of them. There were a ton of others not ALL old but definitely very neat some of them. I just think this picture is so neat I love Old Pictures they are so fun to look at.

Happy Valentines Day

Update on my friends son: He is still in ICU and on morphine for the pain. He still needs lots and lots of prayers! He has a fractured hip which apparently means he may get a cast on his left leg. He is responsive and they say his liver looks good. They plan to do another CT Scan this morning to make sure everything is fine. He is a lucky little guy! The van that hit him was apparently doing around 35mph in a neighborhood while B was on his bike. I just pray he is going to make a FULL recovery and won't have any issues after he heals. Please keep B and his family in your prayers! I added a couple of pictures just because he's a cutie and I like pictures!

Him and I are dancing at Chuck-E-Cheese

We were all dancing at this point. I am pretty sure they had a cd player on the ground for all the kids to just dance in their entrance way.

Aww I like this picture! B and I on the 4th of July and below is Lola and B! I swear he smiles he's just a shy little guy sometimes.

Please pray

**Update** He is going to be ok! Had some bruising, road rash and a couple of fractures but he is going to be just fine! :)

PLEASE PLEASE pray for this little guy! He is 4 and this morning was hit by a car.... I am unsure of how he is doing but he is in the ER right now! He is such a sweet kid and one of my nieces best friends and I pray he is going to be ok! Your prayers are SO MUCH appreciated!



So kinda a long the same lines as my last post BOOTS! My co-worker got the CUTEST cowgirl boots a couple of weekends ago and I thought they were awesome. So I asked her for the website which is if you want to check them out. Thats where I got the pictures below. I picked out 3 pairs that I REALLY liked. Too bad they are WAY expensive definitely over $100. I can hardly bring myself to pay over $20 for a pair of shoes. The only ones I splurge on and spend over $50 are my gym shoes only because I wear them everyday and they get worn out so its worth the money.

These would probably never fit over my calves but I still like them!

These are my ABSOLUTE favorite pair! I think they are pretty. Plus the swirly part at the top is definitely me. Considering Damask is my favorite pattern for most anything.

Which ones would you pick out?

PBR not the beer

Yes people it it the Professional Bull Riders I am reffering to. I know right? ME? haha yes!
Well here's the deal... the new guy I am seeing is a bit of a "country boy" as I like to say. He grew up on a farm in Ohio and is definitely into all things "country". So the other day we were watching the PBR nationals or something like that. So that night I had a dream that I was a Professional Bull Rider... it was an intense dream. I am surprised I didn't wake up in a sweat. haha I don't know if you have ever watched it but it's actually quite interesting. I know I went to one of these when I was younger with a friend and her mom but I don't honestly remember much about it. Unfortunately they were in Charleston LAST weekend and I didn't know I would be interested in going. SO I guess next time they venture this way I will check it out live. I am pretty sure their goal is to stay on as long as humanly possible but the buzzer goes off at 8 seconds. Which I know doesn't seem like a long time but I wouldn't last but maybe half a second once the gate opened. Those guys have got to be strong!

Those bulls are MASSIVE and grumpy among other things im sure! Luckily they shave down the points of their horns so you are less likely to get TOO hurt from that part anyway. Lord help you if they stepped on you! Can you say PAIN?? no thanks! I'll stick to dreaming about it!
Happy Tuesday!

My Weekend

Happy Monday one and all yes thats an oxymoron... love it!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I must say mine wasn't anything tooooo special but it was alright. Friday I did nothing except work and the gym. Saturday I went out with mommy for a bit in the morning to Sams then came home and went to Norrissias baby shower with Shannon. The weather was so crappy on Saturday I think thats why it just felt kinda blah. But I had a great time at the baby shower. Below is Norrissia with her cake which was SO cute.

She is going to be such a great mommy! I know she is ready for nevaeh to get here. She is due the 23rd of this month so it honestly could be any day now. I am kinda hoping for Valentines day! But we shall see, I guess she is not done cooking yet.

Saturday night I went with mom and dad to see my PaPa. We pretty much just watched tv with him but I enjoyed it. We watched Married with Children (old show) and it was honestly quite funny! Now I get all the crude jokes and jabs in the show that I definitely didn't understand when I was younger watching it.

Sunday I went to the gym for almost 2 hours and it felt GREAT! I love going to the gym on Sundays because it's not near as busy as during the week. Typically I go right after work everyday about 4 so there is a lot of people. And a lot of people there have staring problems. There is this one guy that drives me NUTS he is obnoxious. He gets on the treadmill right next to me and stares AND while he is running clears his throat. Needless to say I pretty much get off the treadmill as soon as I see him coming. Although sometimes I want to finish whatever goal I set for it that day. Anywho, after the gym I went to see my friends Will and Jill to see about getting my car window fixed. It has been stuck open for over a week now. Come to find out I have to get a part.... boo! BUT thanks to Ebay I have saved $60 so I am happy! And hopefully he can get it fixed sometime in the next week. :)

So thats my weekend in a nutshell!! Hopefully this week will fly by I am already ready for Saturday so I can sleep in!


Super Bowl Sunday

Guess who I want to win the super bowl? Go Green Bay! Really I don't honestly care about football but since everyone else seems to go for the Steelers. I have decided I am rooting for the Green Bay Packers! :) I like to be different!

Happy Friday everyone! Gosh it took forever for this day to finally arrive! Or maybe it was just that way for me? Who knows! This week just has been dragging by.....

For the last couple of weeks work has been quite busy for me. I am technically a Library for a Govt Facility... not your typical Librarian. I deal with odd military stuff. Anyways... I give out TONS and TONS of drawing numbers... for every drawing number I need the pdf of the drawing. So lets just say long "story" short... I have been attempting to get well over 25,000+ drawings by email. yep! But... the last day or so I have been helping get documents ready for scanning. This basically means pulling staples out of paper... I have a staple mountain on my desk! haha I am kinda waiting to see how big I can get it... maybe I will take a pic to show everyone. maybe...

So I go to lunch and come back to check my email and I have snow pictures. They are from my friend Pam in Dallas Texas. I went there back in August and had a blast! and now they get SNOW!! I am so jealous!!! I want a snow day with lots of snow! BUT I only want one snow day... maybe 2 at most haha yes I put stipulations on what I want! Here are two of the pics she sent me!

This is the entrance to their apartment complex.. its actually quite a hill... you can't tell in this picture though.

and I just love this picture! This is her daughter Ashley playing in the snow. She's such a cutie and so sweet! Miss her and the rest of their family!

I am hoping for a great weekend! So far all I have planned is a baby shower for Norrissia, gym time, and boyfriend time. More on that later!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Wordless Wednesday-Sisters

Random Images

Doing some random image searching on google. You know you really can find some great images if you look. I have found some awesome desktop backgrounds for my work computer using that. My co-worker does the same thing. We both have outdoorsey ones just because it makes us feel better that our office has no windows and we don't get to go outside all that often. The 3 below I just loved. Especially the first one which Kelly told me later it was Philipians 4:4

I am sure this picture is photoshopped like crazy but I would love to be able to go somewhere like this. I love the countryside and this is just gorgeous.

All images I got from THIS website

Cute and Cozy

For about a year or so now I have had THIS website saved in my favorites here at work. I am honestly not even sure how the heck I found it. Probably just random searching one bored day. One day I plan to go and stay in one of these cute and cozy cottages. They are so basic and definitely not up to date like most places but that's what is so appealing about it. If you go in the winter they do winter specials which honestly are not bad. AND they are close to The Biltmore Estate. I went there back in December and had a blast. It snowed the day after we went to the biltmore but I think that was for the best. We would have FROZE trying to see the house and the grounds in the snow. I am a Charleston girl I like snow but not THAT much. I have no idea why that underlined or how to change it. Oh well!

Maybe one day I will get to visit these cute little cottages until then I guess it will remain as a favorite in my computer.

Top 2 things you've learned about friendship
1. I would say I have learned some friends come and go but true friends last forever.
