5 ? Friday

1. If you could buy any car, money not an option, what would it be?

A white Range Rover would be my absolute DREAM car or shall I say SUV! Khloe Odom (Kardashian) has one and I love hers. I could have tried to find a picture of hers but I found this one first. :) LOVE it!!

2. What was your worst first date ever?

It was with a guy I had been friends with for awhile. We decided to go out on a date and it was HORRIBLE. I was so awkward the entire time but he was very into me. Wanted to hold my hand and all.... I felt bad but I just wasn't feeling it. I thought for sure he knew based off my quietness and standoffishness haha yes I just made that ALL one giant word. Nice huh? Needless to say we never went on another date...

3. How old were you when you fell in love for the first time?

17... then we dated for almost 5 years and it ended badly. I am glad it ended though... I have changed a lot since that relationship and definitely for the better.

4. When was the last time you reconciled your checkbook?

reconciled my what? haha that should answer that question nicely

5. If you were going to fashion a "Wanted" Ad for a best friend, how would you word it?

No clue! haha


Royal Wedding

First of all I am half asleep and uploaded these in the wrong order. Therefore I am too lazy to correct it. Sorry... haha

So until this morning I really didn't care anything about the Royal Wedding. However, I got out the shower and mom yelled to me that she was about to get out the car. So Since it was on instead of my morning news I tuned in. Yep... I was hooked... I only got to watch 30 mins... which was basically her traveling to the church up until they said their vows and did the rings. After that it was time to head to work. I have seen pictures of what happened afterwards. I must say that I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE her dress. I had already decided when and IF I ever get married I want lace on my dress so that just made me love her dress even more.

Oh and William was looking quite dashing as well!

Hawk Nelson - "Crazy Love"

I have been LOVING this song lately! It plays on Way-FM Charleston a good bit which is what I have been listening to at work. I have noticed if I play Christian radio while I am at my desk I am less stressed out. Kinda funny how that works right... but it is true!

So after much thinking I have decided to change gyms. I have been at Select Fitness for 2 years now and I am over it. It is super far from home and now that I live back on JI I hate to drive 30 mins just for the gym. So I am joining Golds which is 5 mins from my house if that. I have a couple of friends who already go there or will be joining soon. YAY!! Workout buddies! My friend Julie is having her baby Marlow soon so once she pops her out *nice graphic huh* she is going to join. So I am guessing the begining of June. She will most likely be the one I work out with the most. She is looking forward to feeding off my motivation. I have been going consistently since October after I had that shot in my back. So far 20lb weight loss but I am striving for more and hopefully a new gym will help. I can change up my routine and make it happen!!

Guess we will see how this goes...

OH and not only is it 5 mins from home it is only $9.99 to join and it will be $24.99 monthly AND I won't have to pay until June. I paid $29.99 at Select so it will be cheaper a month and less gas used. I am sure my financial manager will approve of this one HAHA

Photobooth Fun

Today after my workout which was really good I went over to Angels house. I have mentioned before her family is moving away from Charleston. I knew it was coming but tonight she made me realize its in 2 WEEKS :( I knew it was soon but dang I didn't realize HOW soon. In the last year and a half I have become SO close with Angel. and lately her son J has been getting so much closer to me. Everytime I go over there he wants me to play trains with him or chase him around the kitchen. He has always loved me but lately he seems to love me even more. Tonight Angel got her new Mac computer which has the TINIEST keyboard and the BIGGEST monitor. haha I was laughing at the size difference. Anywho we got to playing with the photobooth and these are the awesome pictures we took!

I Absolutely positively LOVE this picture! J looks So cute and then there are my eyes HAHA

haha I seriously LOVE these pictures!!! I laugh everytime I see them! I am going to miss the heck out of this family. I have grown so close to them and I hate to see them leave. I know I will see them again but I can't just randomly go over there after work anymore just to hang out. No more random girls nights... etc... I actually cried a little bit thinking about them leaving on my way home tonight. I dread the day we say our "goodbyes" I know I will be a blubbering mess! And it won't help that Angel will be doing the same. I am crossing my fingers for a good "goodbye" and then we can blubber alone haha

Saying goodbye sucks so I will just say it's a see you later...

Weekend Wrapup

I can't believe another weekend has come and gone... I swear I just left work :(

Anyways, Friday after work I went and got my hair done. I decided to get rid of the red although there are still slight tints of the red. So I told the lady I want some blonde and I trust her! haha I happen to personally LOVE it!! She even cut it a little bit but not too much. I am trying to grow my hair out to be rather long so I am really picky about how much she cuts off. But she knows me well enough now to know what I like!

Saturday I woke up after sleeping for 14 hours... yes 14 there is no typo there!! It felt AMAZING!!! I haven't slept that long probably since forever!! I am sure it was sometime when I was in College. I ended up hitting the gym up for awhile and had an ok workout. My knee has been messed up lately so I am having to be careful when I workout. I am almost thinking I might just need some new shoes? Who knows! Later, Kelly and I went out to Miyabis and it was YUM!! The only bad thing is they give you WAY too much food. It is ridiculous. So we decided we needed to go walk it off at the Towne Center... Surprisingly I bought nothing! Be proud! haha I did however buy some drinks when we went to Hatchells. It was such a great bar very chill and we had a great conversation with 4 people that worked there and 2 random guys who sat next to us. One of the guys was like 36 and wanted to help me figure out my "guy issues" haha I was not about to tell a guy about all that confusion... We ended the night early thanks to Kellys lame curfew... it was WAY earlier last night for some reason... sucked but we still had a great night!

So today was GREAT!! Kelly and I woke up WAY early and went to church. We went to Newspring Charleston and it was AWESOME!!! Long but awesome. Normally a pastor can't keep my attention past 30 mins but this guy kept my attention the entire time. I don't know how long he spoke but the entire service was an hour and 45 minutes if that tells you anything. I loved every minute and Pastor Perry Noble kept us laughing and literally made me cry from laughing so hard. go to to check out some of his sermons. There are a couple I want to go watch once I have some time to sit down and watch them. After church I came home and helped mom do a couple of things for our Easter lunch and then we all ate! I felt like a cow although I didn't eat THAT much it was just filling foods. Mac n Cheese was my favorite. Mom did the recipe different and it was phenominal. Since Kelly joined us for lunch we decided to head out to the beach to try and get some sun. First of all there were WAY too many tourists... when you are from Charleston the tourist just get on your nerves AND it was HOT it felt like July. Next time we are going to a more "local" part of the beach and will make it a point to get in the water.... After that we ended our day watching The Holiday. Such a great movie!

I have a HORRIBLE headache so I am off to sleep. Hopefully when I wake up it will be gone.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter! And remember how blessed we are for what he has done for us! Watch the Passion of the Christ if you need a reminder... Intense... made me cry watching parts of it in church today... He loves us! :D

Beach Hats

Kelly and I went down to Folly Beach the other night. We ended up at her old job Beach Wear and saw all these silly hats. My only thoughts are "do people REALLY buy these things?" "Oh wait Tourist will buy anything"! haha and gosh it is the truth. She knows since I mean she did work there. So we decided to try some of them on and take pictures. Here were our favorites.

Mine says "Grandma <3 me"

We are going to be hot grandmas one day with these awesome hats haha

We only tried these ones because hello they are NEON YELLOW

She wanted us both to do what she is doing in this picture. BUT as you can tell I was laughing hysterically and it was just not happening

So after we left the store we took a nice walk to the Folly Beach Pier and it was SO nice out. The sunset was almost done so I got the picture below.
Then we got to the end of the pier where they had a roped off area for special fishing. I think it was a king mackrel I probably spelt that wrong. It was quite interesting to watch... those guys were VERY into fishing. I felt bad for the little fishies they were using for their bait though... so sad!
We are actually going out somewhere tonight. Have not decided where though... sucks... there are SO many places to go in Charleston yet we always end up at the same places. I think I am going to google some places and see what I can come up with. Something different tonight!

Have a Happy Saturday and a very HAPPY EASTER!!

5 ? Friday

1. What is your favorite Easter tradition?
I wouldn't really call them traditions but I do like to go to church with my parents on Easter Sunday and in recent years actually wear a dress. Then we eat either lunch or dinner. One year we had lunch with our neighbors which was really nice then the next I think we had a family dinner.

2. Are you a "shower" or a "long, hot bath" kind of person?
I am a shower in the morning Long, hot bubble bath in the evening kind of girl. I LOVE to take bubble baths but really at 6am there is just NO time for all that.

3. Can you parallel park and if so when is the last time you did it?
I could in my Volvo but not in my Trailblazer... the thing is too big!

4. What is your favorite Easter candy?
I would say snickers eggs! My mom's favorite are Robin Eggs which I find tasty as well. Oh and nothing beats a Reeses egg either yum!

5. Easter: do you go all out with the Easter Bunny or focus on the religious part of the holiday?
I would say more the religious part of the Holiday? I feel in between on this question because it's not really this or that... its somewhere in the middle! But I would say more towards the religious part and then family time rather than the Easter Bunny.

Snake Bite

I named it Snake bite so my mom won't bother to read it. haha my mom is deathly afraid of snakes and on occassion reads my blog. So I am just looking out for her! Anyways... Snake bite... no I did not get bit by a snake IRL *in real life*

Last night I had a VERY vivid dream about getting bit by a snake. I know I am thinking whatever I had for dinner I will not eat again if I am going to dream of snake bites. Anyways in this dream I am standing outside and my dad is holding a dang snake and lets the thing bite my hand. Like my entire hand is in this snakes mouth and I am just standing there looking at it. Yeah right first of all my dad would never sit there and hold a dang snake and he would NEVER let the thing freaking bite me! What can I say he loves me too much haha. But seriously everything was like a non caring slow motion thing. I then jerked my hand back after he tells me to and stare at it. haha I know this dream is WHACK! I then proceed to say hey I probably should go to the ER haha can we say WEIRDEST dream EVER!! OH and the reason my dad was holding the snake was because it was upstairs in some old ladies house with a bunch of other snakes so he took it out for her. haha

This morning I was trying to remember what the snake looked like and I found the picture below and I think this is the closest one that I could find to the one in my dream. The only difference I could say would be the one in my dream had diamonds on it's back...

SO while I am looking up snake pictures I found the one below. I about died!! I don't remember where this happens but people get snake massages. WHAT THE HECK PEOPLE! There was one picture with baby snakes all over a ladies face. HER FREAKING FACE?!?!?!?!?! People are crazy and apparently way too trusting of an untrusting creature. People have pet snakes that turn on them... there is no way in heck I would ever partake in snake massages. I had to share this craziness. I forget where I found the picture besides google images.

Well Happy Thursday everyone!! It is ALMOST Friday!! WOOHOO!!!! I am so ready for this week to be over. I have been covering the mail since last Thursday and I am SO over it. I am ready to ONLY do my job again... oh wait what is MY job... Oh yeah to cover EVERYONE else's job... haha No I am not bitter!!

Back to work....

Weekend Recap

You know you are a slacker when your weekend recap shows up on a Wednesday! haha my bad!

So Friday I took the day off work. It was the BEST decision ever! I slept late then headed to the beach just for a walk though. The wind was kicking my butt so it was definitely a work out. That night I babysat for Josh. They are moving in a month or less now and it SUCKS!! I am going to miss the heck out of them!!

Saturday.. I ended up at the gym for a nice workout. Then I went to a bbq competition my dad and some of his friends were entered into. It was fun CRAZY windy again but yummy food. The ribs were the best which they got 1st in. The bbq and the chicken they got 3rd in! It was SO good even the hash and rice were good and normally im not a huge fan of hash and rice. Below are some pics!

This is the view from the dock looking back at the yaught club

Izzy enjoing the swings she was so cute

Lo and Me! We were both rocking our Hello Kitty shirts!

This is my food! Yup had to share! Hash and rice, Chicken and ribs! yum

It was so nice out there. A storm was coming in (small storm) and it was beautiful!

Sunday I slept in AGAIN! yes my weekends are for sleeping in. And I will enjoy this until the day I MAYBE have kids. I ended up having lunch with Shannon, Isabelle and Lola at East Bay Deli which was yummy. Then we walked over to the South Carolina Aquarium which was EXPENSIVE. But we all had a lot of fun so I guess it was worth the $20! After the aqaurium we went to Target, Saw the Easter Bunny at the mall. Poor Izzy HATED the EAster Bunny! I felt so bad for her. I grabbed her from Shannon so Lola could see him and she was shaking. I was like dang girl it's not THAT bad! After that we went to Coastal Community Church for their evening service. It was a good service but there were not a lot of people which surprised me. I liked Pastor Chris' comment about there's something in the water because people are falling in love, getting engaged, married at Coastal. I looked at Shannon and said I needed to find the waterfountain. haha Would be nice! Although I am not looking for anything right now It wouldn't be bad if it found me... maybe it already has...

I love the Otters they are SO cute!

AHHHH Snakes!

and my absolute FAVORITE!! Sea Turtle!!

Rocking these awesome shades! I did buy them.

Lola got some too!

Well there is my weekend!! It was fantastic and I can't wait for more just like it! Spent pretty much most of it with my family!
