Oh and next time I hope to post some pictures from my trip to Charlestown Landing sunday with my aunt! She turned our "workout" into a photo shoot for me! If only I had known I could have dressed a bit nicer! :)

Let's talk about something a little more happy! Weekend recap!
Last weekend I went with my Aunt to Ikea like I had already posted about and we had a BLAST. We were only gone for the day 14 hours to be exact. I picked her up at 6:30AM and we were in Charlotte before 10 :) Good timing because basically nobody was on the roads which was VERY nice. She bought a good bit while we were there but all I bought was a coffee table for CHEAP and 2 things for my Joshiepoos birthday this saturday. So I live at home and you may wonder why I bought a coffee table... because eventually I won't live there and it was only $20 so it was a deal. So after we left IKEA with a car FULL of stuff (we got furniture for someone else too) we headed to the South Park Mall to eat at the Cheesecake factory. The ONLY reason we went to this upscale rich mall was to eat there but the wait was OVER an hour and we were Starving. So basically we went out of our way for chick-fil-a. Oh and my aunt did buy a really pretty white tunic shirt and a beautiful scarf. So I guess it was worth it. We did get to experience driving through a not so great area of Charlotte. Needless to say we were ready to get OUT of there. So we left Charlotte around 3 and decided we were not done shopping. By that point I had only spent $40, not bad. She paid for gas and all, so we headed to Columbia to their mall. Again I didn't buy a THING. I know 2 malls AND Ikea and I only spent $40 the entire day... something is wrong with me. But I just didn't see anything that I HAD to have. So we shopped and headed back to Charleston around 6 I believe. I know I was home before 9! All in all a good trip, I wish mom had come with us I know she would have had fun. We talked the ENTIRE time and just had fun laughing and catching up on life.
Sunday I slept in and went to the gym. Nothing exciting BUT that night mom cooked Shrimp Fetucini Alfredo and OH MY GOD it was AMAZING!!!! I had to stop myself from over eating it was THAT good. yum yum!!
This week so far at work has just been blah. But I have spent some time with the BF, Kelly and I went out grocery shopping that night too. Oh and yesterday I got to see Norrissia and Nevaeh GREAT to see them!! It is so crazy that she has finally gotten here and she has been here an entire MONTH!!! NUTS! She is such a gorgeous baby and honestly she is quite good! After that I went and hung out with Ashley and her family! Ashley and I parted ways for over a year because of something petty and now we are back as friends and last night was SO great. It felt just like old times and just felt right. I am glad her and I got over whatever it was that sepearted us to begin with. I really missed her and her hubby and now they have this sweet little man who is seriously just a joy to be around. He is SO darn cute and his little smile is to die for. Oh and not to mention last night he winked at me which was SO cute! ok ok yall get the point haha CUTE BABIES!! Makes me miss Lola and Issabelle being baby babies. They are still young but now that Izzy is mobile she just doesn't seem like a BABY anymore. so sad!
Well my work thing is almost done copying. So I guess I should finish what I was doing. It took over an hour for me to copy all these drawings to ONE database. Nuts considering I am not completely done. All in a days work!!
Happy Hump Day Everyone!!

1. Do you know what your REAL hair color is?
I most certainly do. It is DARK brown, so dark in fact most of the time people told me they thought it was black. That is why I started dying it because I didn't want to have black hair. Plus dying your hair is really fun.
2. Do you plan ahead for summer, or fly by the seat of your pants?
Well I don't have anything already planned. I guess fly by the seat of my pants? I mean really the only difference for me with summer is the heat. Still do the same daily routine just might throw in the beach a couple of times and the Splash Zone with my nieces.
3. What is your favorite meal to cook?
Well since I moved back home I haven't actually cooked at all. BUT I love to make Italian Chicken with veggies on the side and whatever other side I feel like making. I made this a lot when I lived in my apartment. So yummy!! Or Teriyaki sp? chicken with zuchini and squash.
4. Do you get offended by not receiving thank yous?
Not really. A thank you is always nice but sometimes things are just understood I feel. If someone seems appreciative just by their actions that is thank you enough for me. I am just not one of those over emotional people so I tend to just let things like that not bother me.
5. How did you meet your best friend?
Well I am guessing our parents got together and had us there as babies? I have no idea technically. I have known Kelly for as long as I can remember. She was the one person I played with all the time growing up. We even had weddings planned for our barbies. I am not talking we planned it in a couple of seconds and made it happen. I remember Kelly actually taking weeks to plan one of the weddings LOL yeah we are special but it's all good. It is funny because her and I are actually SO different but yet she is my very best friend. So I think it is funny how that works.
Go link up for the 5 question friday and read everyone else's answers

Hopefully one of my cousins will come with us just so I can spend time with them. I hardly ever see them which is sad considering we are in the same city. I guess life happens like that sometimes huh?
Now if only I could get my hair to be as long as her hair is in this picture.
So what do you think? Brown is my natural hair color but I would still add the blonde to give it some extra funness. Is funness even a word? Probably not! lol Oh well I can make up words on my blog I am pretty sure it is allowed. So tell me what you think :)

I heard someone recently say they got pulled over and asked for a warning... the officer said he didn't take requests... haha I guess when it's my turn I won't be laughing but I am hoping my turn doesn't come up! One thing I have been trying so hard to not do lately is text and drive... I watched a video on it a couple of weeks ago and it just kinda opened my eyes to the real danger. One text message and someone could be dead... I wish I knew where that video was I would post it on here. Just everyone try and be more cautious about texting and driving.
These are actual comments made by South Carolina Troopers that were taken off their car videos:
1. "You know, stop lights don't come any redder than the one you just went through."
2. "Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch after you wear them a while."
3. "If you take your hands off the car, I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document." (My Favorite)
4. "If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."
5. "Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that's the speed of the bullet that'll be chasing you." (LOVE IT)
6. "You don't know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?"
7. "Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I'm the shift supervisor?"
8. "Warning! You want a warning? O.K, I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket."
9. "The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?"
10. "Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in monkey poop."
11. "Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."
12. "In God we trust; all others we run through NCIC." ( National Crime Information Center )
13. "Just how big were those 'two beers' you say you had?"
14. "No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we can."
15. "I'm glad to hear that the Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail."
AND THE WINNER IS....
16. "You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right, we don't. Sign here."
*I got this from an e-mail sent around work so I don't know where the image came from. But I do know it is a SC state trooper picture*
1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?
Well considering I do not have a child I would say no. haha I have taken my niece Lola out and trust me you wouldn't be able to forget her in a store.
2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like...first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!)
Hmmm I believe it was in 6th grade I went with my boyfriend (I say this word lightly. We only talked on the phone thats IT until this date) and his parents to a church service and BBQ on the beach I believe on Seabrook Island. It was lame now that I look back but I was crazy excited about it. I think that relationship was lame though we were in the same class yet never spoke at school or sat with eachother at lunch. haha
3. What's your "silly" fear? (We're not talking water and heights.)
Someone about 3 years ago told me about a hag. Supposedly a hag will jump on you in your sleep UNLESS you sleep with a bible under your pillow or near your bed at least. So for a good year I slept with a bible under my pillow out of pure fear this thing would jump on me. Now I realize it is very unlikely to ever happen but I admit the fear is still kind of there. haha yes I would say this is quite silly. But hey you know what a fear is a fear regardless of what you are scared of.
4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?
depends on the situation. Most of the time I would rather just walk away and not deal with it. I am not much for confrontation. I would consider myself rather chill and hate drama. I mean I am still a girl so yes there is a little bit every now and a again but I am more into the ignore it until it is gone way of dealing.
5. Wood floors or carpet?
Don't have my own house BUT I like how my parents house is. Wood floors everywhere except the bedrooms. I think bedrooms shouldn't be wood it's just too cold and not as cozy.

The Netherlands in May
At first glance, it looks like a giant child armed with a box of crayons has been set loose upon the landscape. Vivid stripes of purple, yellow, red, pink, orange and green make up a glorious patchwork. Yet far from being a child’s sketchbook, this is, in fact, the northern Netherlands in the middle of tulip season. The Dutch landscape in May is a kaleidoscope of color as the tulips burst into life. The bulbs are planted in late October and early November. More than three billion tulips are grown each year and two-thirds of the vibrant blooms are exported, mostly to the U.S. and Germany .
These last 2 are my favorite ones! Especially the first one, of course I am a sucker for a gorgeous Sunset.

So this past weekend I really didn't do much. I hung out at the house a lot. Kelly was out of town she is my PIC and the bf was working all weekend so there went those 2 options. BUT Saturday night I picked up my Aunt Susan and we went out for a bit of shopping. She is always my Kohls buddy and I found a TON of stuff there that I wanted. Didn't buy it all but I definitely wanted to. BUT my favorite purchase was the shirt below. It is the CUTEST shirt I have probably ever had. At least that is MY opinion. It was only $12.99 and seriously the ruffles and the ribbon on the back just made my life. GO PURCHASE NOW!
That was it for my weekend. I did end it with steak and this yummy potato stuff mom made! Great way to end the weekend if I do say so myself.
So here are some pictures I have been wanting to upload.
Izzy at the beach it was quite chilly that day
