A Little Prayer

I have a job interview at MUSC tomorrow morning at 11. If y'all would say a little prayer for me tomorrow morning it would be great. I am very nervous because I want to make the best impression and totally take this job! I am confident but just nervous as anyone would be going into an interview. So just say a little prayer for me tomorrow if y'all remember. Hope y'all had a great Monday! xoxo


Ooo Baby Baby!

This past weekend Brian and I went to Rock Hill for a party with all our friends. It was so cute. Balloons and cute little party favors everywhere in their super cute newlywed house! Anyways, all of us were sitting around in the living room just talking. And all of a sudden, my friend/hostess of the party says "Patrick and I have an annoucement." Let me tell you. You could have heard a pin drop in the room. Dana goes on to say "We are going to have an addition in 8 months!" Y'all, I have never been so excited. I cried in fits of excitement and happiness!! All the girls were squealing and already planning! I am so excited for D&P. They were the first of our friends to get married and the first to have a BABY! I can't wait for Baby Hamilton to get here. Once we know the sex of the baby I can promise you that he/she are going to have the CUTEST clothes! I am so excited for them I can't even stand it!! It is another major step in their lives and everyone is eager to experience everything with them and meet and be a part of this PRECIOUS baby's life. Here is a picture of all the girls after we found out. SO EXCITED!!! LOVE YOU D&P!!!!!


Guilty Pleasure!

MTV will be replaying The Jersey Shore Season 1 every Thursday. It is totally my guilty pleasure. Brian and I quote all the ridiculousness from this show. And not to mention there will be a SEASON 2!!! I am beyond thrilled/excited. It's total trash TV but who cares? I didn't think there were really people like that until I saw the show. I love it. And if you don't, you are missing out. ;)


Weekend Revelry and a Horrible Monday!

Quite a weekend I had. It started Thursday. Thirsty Thursday to be exact. A few of my friends and I went to the Riverdogs game. And every Thursday is "Thirsty Thursday" with $1.00 (hold your breath) Busch Lights. Yuck I know. But it's a dollar! Back to my freshman days of cheap keg beer at the Kappa Sig house. What was I thinking?Anyways, it was fun.

Friday afternoon I got a call about a job and had an interview set up for this Wednesday. How exciting right? Just wait for it. That night I went out with a different group of girls, and we had a blast. We did dinner at this new place called Amen Street. It was GREAT. And ladies, the wait staff is quite good looking. ;) After dinner we headed to Market Street and bar hopped a little bit. It was fun and well deserved. The girls are a fun group.

Saturday night was 80's Night!! Ladies, I absolutely adore 80's music and the band was awesome. They knew everything! I was with the same group of girls and their boyfriends/husbands. Even with the boys, it was fun. They helped to keep the creepers away from us. It sucked Brian couldn't be there with me because he would have had a great time dancing and singing. It ended up being a late night. Sunday I laid low and relaxed. I had been running on full blast all weekend.

This morning I got a call from the lady who was going to interview me for the position at MUSC. She called to cancel my interview because she had failed to look at my resume and see that I didn't have all the requirements. Aren't you supposed to look at that stuff before you even schedule an interview? Talk about heartbreak. It took all that was in me not to burst into tears while she told me that she had to take back the offer of an interview. Mom and I had even gone out and she bought me all this interview clothes. I have never felt more guilty for her buying that stuff for me and then not have an interview. I cried briefly after I got off the phone with the lady... and then Brian called after I emailed him at work. All I said was hello and he said "I'm so sorry babe!" and I just couldn't hold it in. I bawled and bawled. I was just very disappointed with the way things happened and why they did. I understand I didn't have the requirements, but I felt it was wrong for her not to even look over everything before making the decision to call me and offer the opportunity at an interview. Oh well. Life goes on, right? It's hard to see that sometimes.

On a better note, this Friday I'm traveling up to Columbia for a date night with Brian. It is much needed. I haven't seen him in 2 weeks which isn't that long for some people, but it feels like a long time for me. I am so ready for us to start things for us you know? I'm ready for him to hurry up and finish his last year and for us to get things really rolling in OUR direction. Saturday we have a summer kickoff party in Rock Hill with our friends. I know it's going to be a lot of fun. And hopefully, it will help me get out of this horrible funk I've been in lately.

Anyways, I hope you all had a better Monday than I did and a great weekend.


Dog Park Etiquette

For those of you who have dogs and have a brain stem and USE IT, then you can relate to me.

Today I took the pups to the dog park in my neighborhood. It was mine and theirs first time to a dog park let alone the one in my neighborhood. Anyways, it's really nice: plenty of shade trees, benches, trashcans, a shovel for poop, and tennis balls galore floating the in the pond. I've always been weary of other dogs. You know how they can be...one wrong sniff and there is gnashing of teeth. Anyways, we were the only ones there and they were having a BALL (no pun intended). I think they ran around the pond at FULL speed 50 times. And then they were in the pond. Swimming and swimming and swimming. Another lady showed up with her dog, a weimaraner... off leash. To be specific, NO leash period which is one of the rules on the sign before you enter. You must have one leash for every dog that you bring. So my two see the lady and dog and take off to greet them. When I say they are harmless, they are HARMLESS. They wouldn't hurt a fly. All Lily and Legend were doing were sniffing. I ran up behind them and apologized because they were soaking wet and the lady looked to be in her best dress at the dog park that happens to have a LARGE pond in the middle... Her dog didn't give off a great vibe so I was corralling my two to head back to the other side of the pond but they were way too excited to meet someone new. The lady proceeds to say (mind you her voice is shaking and she sounds SCARED to death) "Oh, I can't have other dogs around me or pet them. He gets aggressive." I'm thinking to myself "HOLD UP! Your dog is aggressive?" Greeattt. My two were busy sniffing the lady and "Remi" looks as if he is about to lunge and grab onto Lily's neck. I grabbed Lily and pulled her away from the lady. Legend, poor Legend. He is goofy but thinks he is macho sometimes. I hear gnashing of teeth and growling and immediately turn around....Legend is humping the dog, Remi. I immediately grabbed Legend and he is whining and scared to death of this dog. I think it's really a male dominance thing and that's why he started humping the other dog. I apologized and grabbed my two and we left. And Legend is neutered btw. He still has the urge I guess and was filled with P&V. The lady walked off and started talking on her cell phone.

Let me ask you something. Now I know it was wrong on Legend's part to hump the dog, but I immediately grabbed him and reprimanded him. But, I'm sorry. The lady informed me her dog was 2 and was aggressive and protective of her when other dogs were around. Um HELLO!? WHY ARE YOU AT THE DOG PARK???? There is even a rule that says "If your dog is the least bit aggressive, please do not use the park." I think that's only common sense. And if you still wanted to use the dog park, then use it when there isn't others there. Am I wrong?

I was just apologetic to the woman. But after getting in the car and driving off, I started FUMING and started thinking about all the things I should have said to her...something along the lines of "You need to call Caesar Milan." Not mean enough but just a jab to the side. Anyways, I have been fuming over this since I got home. I apologize for spelling or grammar errors. This was written fuming and in a hurry! I do plan on re-visiting the park... just not when those people are there.

[Side note: I never went to the dog park because I was afraid of other aggressive dogs and a dog fight. Thank you Remi and owner without a brain stem for making my fear come true on my first visit to the dog park.]

Here are a few pictures that I took before we were so rudely interrupted. They are not great quality because all I had was my phone. Enjoy!

Off they go! Legend leading and Lily following.

Here's Lily swimming. She was huffing and puffing. She's not quite used to all that swimming. ;) She IS a princess.

And Legend with one of the MANY tennis balls!


How do I...

Okay blog friends, I have tried and tried to figure out how to have stuff on either side of my blog posts? Like the "About Me" on on side and the blogs I follow on the other? CAN Y'ALL HELP ME? I've tried changing the layout.....but I still don't get it. All help is appreciated!!


A big thank you to Southern Belle JM for posting about Rue La La. I HAD NO IDEA ABOUT IT! What a great site!! I will definitely be using this site. I have an expensive taste (what girl doesn't?) and this site offers the expensive stuff at discounted prices! OH YEAH! If y'all haven't checked it out, DO!
Happy hump day y'all!



Do y'all know GloZell? If you don't let me introduce you. She has TONS of videos on YouTube. She can't be employed if she has this much time on her hands to make these mini videos. Anyways, if this isn't hope for you ladies out there working out hard for summer and bathing suit season then I don't know what is! I LOVE GloZell. Hope y'all find this as humerous as I do! PEACE AND BLESSINGS!
