TUESDAY...which means only 4 more days until the weekend :)

Anyways, I was still recovering from all my weekend festivities yesterday but I am back in the swing of things today. So as I wrote in my last post I was in Springfield this past weekend for my friend Megan's bachelorette party. It was SO FUN! We went to dinner and then to our fave kareoke bar on the southside of town. It was so nice to see a lot of my friends and meet some new people.

Then on Saturday I stayed with my best guy friend Chris and we were pretty much bums all day. We did make it to our favorite mexican place and that was about it. It was nice to just lay around and chat etc. Then that night we haven a few (or almost 10) people to chris' apartment and just hung out and a few adult beverages. We had a great night of blasting Disney songs (NOT ashamed) and dancing.

The drive back is always the worst...I cried. I think I will most likely cry everytime I leave Springfield.

I am still (and growing even more by the day) about not having a job for the fall. It is about all I can think about and I have tried so hard and done all that I can-- but that feeling of not being enough is starting to creep in and make me upset. I am trying to breathe through it just remember things happen for a reason...it is just hard to remember that sometimes.

well it is here! I will be leaving for Springfield in a few short hours for Megan's Bachelorette party! I am way too excited (can't cha tell?) It is a much needed 2 day break from family drama. Seeing friends, dancing, my fave Springfield eateries is exactly what I need (and want of course;))

Well I woke up this morning and I awoke from an emotional dream. In this dream I was very upset and crying (Why is this post taking a depressing turn-- bear with me) and when I finally woke up I was so sad and my chest was so heavy. It was about an emotional thing I am trying to move past-- let's not get in tot aht no. ANYWAY I HATE waking up like that. I have this tendancy to remember my bad dreams and not remember the happy ones. It is ridiculous. I feel better now but does anyone else ever let dreams affect their awake self, whether it's good or bad?

hmmm... Okay so I know that was depress-y but I had to get it out. BACK to happy FRIDAYS :)

Here is an e-card (dirty yes!) BUT hilarious. Love a gooy lymeric.

Have a wonderful weekend and I will post pictures of the bachelorette party when I get back.

25 years

Happy Hump Day!

Well it's Wendesday evening and I just got back from my parents aniversary dinner. They have been married for 25 years. WOAH. We just went to Red Lobster. My mom was craving sea food so off we went. It was DELISH! I let myself not worry about what I was eating and just enjoyed. I brought home leftovers, but I am just going to let my dad take it as lunch. (I don't want to eat bad two days in a row). Anyways, it was a nice dinner and I think we all enjoyed ourselves.

I AM SO EXCITED!! I am going to be heading to Springfield in TWO DAYS!! :) I am way too happy. I cannot wait to see my friends and have a few (or more) adult beverages. It is going to be a nice time to relax and not worry about getting a job or anything like that. Tomorrow I am going to go look for a new dress or something. I obviously need something. ;)

I have been adding more blogs to my reading list and a lot of them are doing 'blog challenges' and I think I want to participate. I might start doing one...we shall see.

night. xo

Summer Sunday


It is not even noon and I have been so productive. My mom and I made it to the gym by 9 and got a great workout on. I have had breakfast and pinterest-ed (is that a word?) and now I am blogging. Pretty great for a girl who likes to sleep til noon on Sundays. Well it helps I didn't do anything last night which is NOT like my Saturdays at ALL! Ugh, hopefully St. Charles will be better as the summer goes on. *Staying Positive*

So I am hoping this week FLIES by. I have my friends bachelorette party in Springfield on Friday. I AM SO EXCITED to see friends and have a few adult beverages. On the plus side it's on the south side of town so it will be more relaxing and not as crazy crowded! Hopefully there will be cute boys ;)

Alrighty well this is a short one but I am of to pinterest more. haha :)

Also I will be uploading pictures to facebook soon so I might add some here. I am still thinking about doing the 360 photos album. I need to be taking more photos because it makes me feel better.

It's FRIDAY! I just finished e-mailing a few more principals that I saw a had postings. Fingers Crossed :) Emily (my 20 year old sister) and I are going to get lunch with our mom in about an hour which means I have to wear something besides work out clothes today. Ugh.

On today's blog I want to focus on positive things. I feel like I have been negative or complain-y in the last few posts and I don't like that. So I am going to list 5 things I am thankful for.

1) My mom. She is a constant support system and much more than that she listens. I gab A LOT and I know she is always there to listen no matter how silly or insignificant it is to her and I appreciate that beyond words.

2) My friends. I mean the ones who stick by me. The ones who do the little things and no matter how long it has been since I have seen them, I still know I can count on them. That is that counts.

3) My education. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to go to college and graduate. Yes I had to work all through college and I have crazy student loans BUT through all of that I still have that diploma and no one can take that away from me.

4) The beach. This might seem silly but the beach is one of the most relaxing and beautiful places I can think of. I am thankful then I love the beach and that I have a place where I know I can relax and just breathe.

5) My carrer. Even though I have not gotten a big girl job yet, I am still so thankful that I have found what I want to do for the rest of my life. I know that it will be fulfilling and I will enjoy everyday. That is such a blessing.

Those are just a few things I am thankful for. I have so many other things in my life that I am so blessed to have. I will try to be more positive as this blog grows. I know that I do not have followers as of yet,  but it is nice to get thoughts and feelings out.
