Happy Halloween, y'all!

Hope y'all have a wonderful Halloween. Here are 2 pictures from today.

Me & the girls at work. Our department was "Alice in Wonderland." (YES! My hair was sprayed purple. It felt like straw all day)

And then our pups after their walk.

Legend, a pimp, BG, a witch, and Lily a punk rocker!


Curling Cone

So I have stick straight hair. I have found that I'm not really big into "curls" so to speak, but more waves. That being said, I bought a curling cone (see below). Have y'all used one? Do you know any tricks? I'd love some advice.

Stuck in blah hair world.


Operation Christmas Child

Well we meet again. Sunday. Lately, I have grown to dislike Sundays. Even though it is a day of rest, do we even really rest? I would say no. We are busy getting everything together for the work week ahead of us. It's almost as if we can't relax. Do y'all feel that way? Anyways, Sunday is the 7th day and we should take at least a moment to relax. Thus, here I am writing to you guys with coffee in hand flavored with Cinnabon Creamer. Need I say more?

Today, I packed 2 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child? Do y'all know what that is? If you click the link, you can read more about it. Every year Samaritan's Purse organizes a shoebox drive for children who do not get Christmas presents. You can pack your shoebox with games, toys, candy, soap, etc. You get the picture. I did one for a boy and one for a girl. They have said in the past that usually the older kids do not get as much because everyone buys for the younger kids. I always do my boxes for the 10-14 age range. It is so fun to participate! If y'all want to, there is still time! They have to have the boxes by early November so that they can all be processed and organized and sent to their destinations. It is an awesome way to brighten a child's life. Here are my 2 boxes!

Girl box!
Boy box!

Here is quick video for y'all to watch.



Well I have been crazy busy lately. Literally, I have been on the go NON-STOP. It is only going to get busier as the year goes on. There are more bridal shower parties, Farmhouse weekend, weddings, Thanksgiving, football games, and Christmas. The rest of this year is seriously going to go by in a blink of an eye. However, this weekend, I am doing absolutely NOTHING, and I cannot tell you how thrilled I am about it. I have been dying to sleep in....in my own bed.

Last weekend was the bachelorette party in Charlotte. (5 girls in a room = no sleep) It was a blast. We ate good food and drank good drinks and shared lots of laughs. Here are a couple pictures. Like I said in earlier posts, I have been bad about taking pictures with my camera. Oops!

It was super fun but I was very ready to get back. Y'all, this girl can't hang anymore. Is that bad? Should I still be out late night? I mean I am only 24. I don't know. I like to have a good time but I HATE being completely useless the next day and feeling like utter crap. Oh well.

B's job is moving along swimmingly. He likes it and learns more every day. I am thankful he has a job. The distance sucks, but what can you do? Distance makes the heart grow fonder. (cheesy, I know!)

This weekend is my mom's birthday. And like the good daughter that I am, I haven't gotten her a thing. (Smack me.) In my defense, she is that person who is hard to shop for. Although, tonight she said something about her coffee maker being on its last leg. Maybe I'll get her that? I don't like getting lame presents and that seems lame to me. My mom always says, "don't get me anything!" She reads, but she has so many books right now I don't want to get her another. I guess I'll come up with something.

My friend Dana, her husband Patrick, and baby Whit will be in town Saturday. I am going to see them over at our friends. She is hosting a jewelry party on Saturday so I'm anxious to see what goodies she's got in store for us gals.

Here is the inspiration of my post title today...

OPI's Kennebunk-port red

And here is my new do. I got and inch and half off today. I feel like a new woman. The layers needed help BADLY.

I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend.



The Cutest...

These 3 videos totally make my day. These girls are PRECIOUS!!


Busy. Busy.

It seems I have been running around like crazy. Last weekend I had my friend from work's wedding. It was super fun. Here is a picture of some of the people I work with... really the only decent one. We all feed off each other. These people are like my family. I spend more time with them than I do my own family or Brian.

[What was going on with hair?! Clearly I needed Pink Lou Lou.]

This weekend I travelled to Greenville to see the beau. His birthday was on Thursday so I spent the weekend with him celebrating. I surprised him early on Friday morning. He didn't think I would be arriving until about 3:30, but I made it to Greenville at about 10:30AM. He was so surprised and excited. :) Friday night I cooked for him (meatloaf and mashed potatoes per his request) and then our friends Kristin and Tommy came from Spartanburg to go out with us. Boy did we have a GOOD time. Greenville is a different scene, but we had a lot of fun. Saturday we watched football practically all day and then went and got some gelato (O.M.G. it is SO GOOD!) and grabbed dinner later.

[How handsome is my man?!]

Despite our laziness on Saturday, I let my emotions get the best of me and bawled like a baby to Brian. He is literally in Greenville all by himself. He hasn't met too many people (his age) so I was all worried for him and was already fretting over leaving him on Sunday. I guess it hit me that he is a bit farther away from me now, and I have been worrying about him meeting people. I don't know what it is, but I HATE for people to be alone. I don't know why. It makes me feel guilty or something. I don't know; call me crazy! I am just a wreck sometimes. But in true Brian fashion, he reassured me that he was okay, and I didn't need to worry. Boy, do I love that man!

Anyways, I hope y'all had a great weekend. I have a 4.5 day work week this week and am headed to CLT for my bff's bachelorette party on Friday. I need to prepare myself mentally...and physically! It could get crazy. :)

Have a good week!


Rest In Peace

The world has lost a wonderful, brilliant man. He helped make Apple what it is today. May his spirit live on. I know that he will never be forgotten as he turned around technology practically single handedly. He was younger than my parents. For those of you that still have both of yours, thank your lucky stars and thank God. Life is precious.


Second Cousin.

On Sunday, I got to see my sweet baby cousin Issac. He is 6.5 months old and a doll baby. He is so happy and content. He loves to laugh and smile. The only time he is fussy is when you aren't getting the spoon from the food to his mouth quick enough. Too funny!! He is sitting in the "baby-butler" which is also known as a high-chair. My grandmother has had it for all 6 of her kids, all of grandbabies, and great-grand's. I hope one day I have a chance to put my children in it as we have all been there. Too cool.

This little 20lb ham was eyeing the food his momma was opening while I was trying to get out a smile.




Today is the first day of October. That means it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I found this song by Martina McBride which will bring tears to your eyes. Breast cancer runs on my mother's side. Ladies, get checked. It can happen at any time.
