MIA!

Hey guys! Sorry I've been kinda MIA for the past few days. I've had a horrible cold and starting at the computer for more than 5 minutes makes me light headed!

My nose is runny and I'm light headed. :(

But I will be back as soon as I start feeling better!

I noticed I lost a follower, so please don't think I'm gone for good.. HAHA

Just a short break because I'm feelin pretty crappy. :(

Have a good day!!

UPDATE!

Soo I had my interview today!

Tony drove me there to make sure I was safe because I met these people online.

Anyways, we were a tad early, 20 minutes to be exact.

So, we decided to drive around a little and then go back at around 2:50PM.

We pull up and oh-em-gee their house is beautiful! It's huge and up on a big hill!

He dropped me off, and I rang the doorbell and the lady's husband answered.
He was very polite and they introduced themselves.

We sat down on the couch and just started talking about my expeirence and everything.

I met the kids, they are too cute.

It was about 15 minutes long, and then they told me they would call me next week to let me know!

They have to interview a few more people tomorrow too.

So, we'll see!

:)

Cannot wait!

So.. I'm sitting on Tony's couch in his living room because he's asleep in his bed, and I am just excited about soo many things.. So why not share them with you?!?

- My interview tomorrrow. I'm SO nervous, but also very excited!
- Tony moving to my neck of the woods in 3 weeks!! :)
- My 21st birthday in 2 weeks!!


Also, I was looking at clothes online..and I came across babyGap! OHH LAWDY! Let's just say if I have a baby girl, I will be spoiling her rotten with all these cute clothes!! Also, if I have a boy, I'm sure I'd be spoiling him rotten with the cutest boy clothes! BUT the girl clothes are SOO SOO cute!!

I just wanted to share with you some of the clothes I thought were SO freakin' adorable!












Ahh I want a little girl! Like, NOW!

Don't get me wrong.. I really don't care if I have a boy or a girl, just as long as the baby is healthy! That's all the matters.

What I'm saying is.. girl's clothing is so much cuter than boys! Haha! :)

Hopefully in a few years I will be buying some cute baby clothes, whether it be boy or girl!

Goodnight loves!

Happy Birthday, little sis!

Today is my step-sister's, Sarah's, 17th Birthday!!
I cannot believe it!
My dad met her mom when I was 8 years and and she was 4 years old.
When we finally met, it was at a hotel, when my dad drove me and my brother to St. Louis to meet her, my step-mom, and my step-brother.
Instantly, me and my step-bro got along.
Sarah was 4 years younger than me, so we didn't get along tooo well in the beginning.
But we grew on each other and have been inseperable ever since!
She's my best friend and I still cannot believe she's 17 already!
Time FLIES!
We have made SO SO SO many memories together, and I honestly don't know what I'd do without her.
Even though we are not blood related, I feel like we are real sisters.
She's the sister I always begged my parents for!
Even though we have different parents, it really doesn't matter.


Happy Birthday to the best sister, ever!!

Here we are in Dec '09 drinking Starbucks. Our fave!




Being silly.


Us at a Falcons game.


Dec. '09.


Nov '09. Yeah, my arm is awkward.

Nov '09.


Yes, I can't believe I'm showing this to you, but this was around Christmas time and I think I was probably 13 and Sarah would of been 9. Ohh man.



Man time flies when you're having fun! :) I'm telling ya!

Five Question Friday!

Oooohhh how I loove Fridays! :) Since it's Friday, you know what that means!


You guessed it! Five Question Friday!


1. What was the first car you owned?
A 1994 Explorer. It was so good to me. Such a great first car, even though it was a junker. Haha! There were a lot of memories made in that car! *tear*
This isn't the car, but it looked exactly like this!!






2. What song are you embarrassed to know the lyrics to?
Justin Bieber's "Baby". Sad, I know. It's just such a catchy song, and I actually like it. Haha.





3. Have you ever had stitches?
Nope. Knock on wood. There was one time when I cut my finger while slicing something a few Easter's ago, and it hurt and was bleeding, but I didn't think it was a huge deal. Well, I went into the doctor the next day for something else, and he saw my finger and asked what happened and said that if I came in that day, then I probably would of had to get stiches. He said that I probably won't have a lot of feeling there, well he was right, since it cut into the nerve. Blast!



4. What was your first job?
Cold stone Creamery. I applied when I was 15, almost 16, with my friend who was already 16, and my boss said they only hire anyone 16+. But for some reason, she decided to hire both of us. Even though I was 15. I guess because I would be turning 16 the next month. Anyways, it was a fun job, actually. I think I worked a couple days during the week, then on Friday and Saturday nights because those were the busiest nights. We got tip too. It was actually pretty fun. Probably because it was hella easy and I got to work with my friend most of the time. AND AND AND, each time we were working, we got to make a free ice cream for ourselves! Let's just say I had never ate so much ice cream and I probably gained 10 lbs while I worked there. I quit though after about a month. I got minimun wage and I wanted to be paid more. Oh well.
P.S. They have really good cakes if you're ever looking for a YUMMMMY cake!





5. Who is your favorite Sesame Street character?
Cookie monster! Probably because I'm a cookie monster myself. Haha! :)




Well that was fun!! :) I hope everyone has a GREAT Friday! TGIF!

2. I'm giddy about next year and that Tony and I just might be taking the next step in our relationship. ;)

Top 3 Thursday

Today over at Keeping up with Kelly, it's Top 3 Thursday - Favorite Childhood Toys!




List your Top 3 Fav Childhood Toys!

1. Beanie Babies!
Does anyone remember these things? I used to ask for them for Christmas, my birthday and basically any holiday! I LOVED them and it was the hottest thing going around! I would collect them and I had SOO many!




2.  POGs!!
How can you not remember these? I remember playing them with my brother ALL the time. He had tons and tons of them! Each player has their own collection of pogs and a slammer (a heavier game piece). Before the game, players decide whether to play 'for keeps', or not. 'For keeps' means that the players keep the POGs that they win and forfeit those that have been won by other players. It was such a fun game! There were so many different kinds too! Please tell me you remember this! :)




3. Barbies
I know a lot of people might say this, and it's the cliche thing to say, but I was obsessed with barbies until I was about 10 years old! I could play with them ALL day long! I collected them and would collect the clothes too!




Have a great Thursday everyone!!! :)

Palm Pixi

So, I'm pretty sure I'm going to be getting the Palm Pixi for my birthday, unless someone tells me that it is a really sucky phone! So, if you guys have the Sprint Palm Pixi or know someone who does let me know if you/they like it!! I have 2 weeks before I decide if I want it!!

Wordless Wednesday

{Me and my step-sister, Sarah. She will be 17 on Friday and I'm almost 21 and she's taller than me. *sigh*}

Wishful Wednesday


'I wish' .... I could be a GLEE character for an episode and it would be Rachel!

I love Glee! And I love Rachel! I'm sure this is going to be the majority of ya'lls answers, but I just love her! Even though she is a little dorky, she has a AMAZING voice, and she's GORGEOUS! I love her personality!






Hope ya'll have a great Wednesday!! :) Can't wait for next Wednesday's Wishful topic!

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Really?!? What?!? Wait....What?!?!

I know you are probably wondering about the title of this post..

Sunday Tony and I don't get to see each other, so I decided to call him up so I could hear his voice.

We talked for an hour and a half just about random things.

I mentioned that next year (mostly summer) is going be so packed full.

My step-sister will be graduating high school, so I will be going to Kansas for that in May '11.

My brother will be graduating college in May '11 at GA State.

My step-mom and step-bro (maybe step-sis if she decides to go to college her in GA) are going to be moving down here in July or August or 2011.

In January 2011 I will be transferring to Kennesaw State and maybe moving there too. Haven't figured out if I want to live at home and drive 45 min to go to school.

Tony will be finishing his MBA in in July 2011.

So, we were talking about all these "big" things are going to be happening and then he said "yeah and maybe something else".

I thought, hmm.. Wonder what he's talking about. So I just kinda shrugged it off and got off the phone to mow the lawn.

Later that night we were texting each other and I asked about what he meant when he said that.

He said, "I just think it'd be nice to show a more "official" way that we are together.. If money is okay and all".

Does that mean what I think it means?!?

Engagement?!?

What do you guys think?

I'd really like to know!

He was kind of hinting at it but wouldn't really say it.

Let me know if this is what you guys think it means!

Let me know if you think I will be getting one of these next year!!





Weigh In Wednesday


So on May 10, 2010, I will be starting my weight loss journey to lose 10-15 lbs by July 1, 2010. The reason I'm waiting until May 10 to start is because I want to be able to splurge on my birthday. I want to be able to have yummy, fruity drinks. Plus, Tony is taking me to The Melting Pot, and I will probably gain 5 lbs just in that one day. Soo, that's why I'm waiting. It's 3 weeks away and I'm ready for it! I'm going to North Carolina and staying at Nantahala on July 2nd. My whole dad's side of the family is going and it's going to be a sort of reunion. So, I wanna look the best I can look for them! :)



So, every Wednesday starting after May 10th, so May 12th, I will write about how much I lost from the week before. I'm going to actually be weighing in on Sunday's, but I will update ya'll on Wednesdays about how the week went and how much I lost (or haven't lost).

I will be doing a low carb diet. Really low carb. Roughly 25-30 carbs a day. I'm doing this because I know it works for me, heck, I lost 50 lbs on this diet. I will also be working out 6 days a week with my off day on Sunday.

I kinda can't wait to start! Just because I can't wait to see results. I'm not too excited about the diet and exercise part of it. Bleh. If I could lose about 1.5-2 lbs a week, that would be LOOVERLY. We'll see! :)

Ta ta for now! :)

Weekend Recap and Other Rambligs

Soo this weekend was pretty good, to say the least! Friday, as usual, Tony and I met at Trader Joes to do some grocery shopping. We decided we wanted to get a pizza for Friday night. Once we got back to his apartment, we also decided we wanted to rent a movie. So, we went to a Red Box and was going to rent "Zombieland", but it was out, so we decided on getting "Where the Wild Things Are". It was a really cute movie!

Saturday we went to go look at phones since I'm getting a new one for my birthday! So, I decided on this one!


It's a Palm Pixi and I LOOOVE it! It's all touch except for the keys. So, basically I cannot wait for my birthday!!

After spending all day with my babes I left around 4:30 to head back to my place to get ready to have girls night with Mary!!

We met up at the mall, did some window shopping, then headed to dinner at Chili's. Again. :) It was so fun! Here are a few pics from the night..







I'm the brunette if you didn't already know! ;)

So, anyways, it was a great night!

Sunday I woke up and scrubbed down my bathroom (it reallllly needed it!)

Then I mowed the lawn. Yeah, 'lil 'ol me.

Let's just say I'm going to leave that job for Tony if we end up living together!

Man, oh, man. The flap that is on the bottom that is supposed to keep the grass and stuff from flying out and up at you, yeah, it wasn't present.

Let's just say I had grass/dirt on my nose, ears, MOUTH, hair, and everywhere else on my body. It. was. disgusting. Seriously.

Never again.

Then after I got cleaned up, I headed to my dad's house for dinner. :)

We had rice and barbeque ribs! Mmm!

By the way, if you like white rice, my dad and grandfather (Papa) make the BEST! It's my favorite food because of them!

Then, I came home and did a little studying.

And then watched a little of the Country Music Awards! Go Carrie and Miranda!






Today was spent at school and Tony's place. :) Pretty nice, relaxing Monday!!

I hope ya'll had a great Monday!!
