T'was the Day Before Christmas

Twas the day before Christmas and the whole house was busy getting ready for lunch at Grandma's house. The Pina Colada cake is cooling and is almost ready for devouring, the kids are wondering around already ready for food and wondering who all will show up. 
Yes, this is a description of part of my Christmas eve. I really can't wait until much later today when my sweetie and I go out to dinner! And tomorrow feels like it is years away I really can't wait for my Granny's yummy home cooked breakfast!

Wonderful Day!

Shop-With-A-Cop was awesome this year just like last year was!! This year the little one we went shopping with had three helpers, my sweetie, me and his best friend who just got back the other day from West Point! Getting to see all the faces of the children that got to go just kind of warms me and I feel good helping them have a Christmas. Their happy faces also shows me that, even though the county I live in does make poor decisions about how to spend money, some of the things they choose to spend money on such as today does good for the people who don't make enough to have a proper Christmas.

The Birthday Thing

Okay so what does it mean when my 19th birthday is tomorrow and I am not jumping up and down, counting down the minutes until midnight, and planning any thing special? I am actually more excited for the day after my birthday, which happens to be shop-with-a-cop. True, I am not a police officer but my boyfriend's father is and this is the second year in a row they have asked me if I want to help out. How could I say anything but, "Yes of course I will help" 
Now don't get me wrong I am excited that my birthday is tomorrow but not as excited as I have been in the past, could it be this way because I have an exam and I have to work that day?
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

The Day of Forgetting

Yesterday had to be the day of forgetting because to start the day off I thought it was Friday and not Saturday. Then later at work one man left his debit card, a teenager girl left her purse behind and lastly a family left their to-go box behind. I also forgot to drink plenty of Sundrop so I had to suffer with a headache that verged on a migraine, but other than feeling like crap when I went to bed I had a very good day that was very interesting with all the forgetting that was going on.
Welp best get some housework done and some crochet done before skating.
Have a wonderful day and Merry (early) Christmas everyone!!

First Semester of Freshman Year of College

Eek! My first semester of college is nearly over I cannot believe it has gone by so dang fast!! I only have one class left today and two exams next week (one being on my birthday) then Christmas break!!
I am one happy girl since I am finally going to school for something I like rather than being forced to go to school to learn the exact same thing every year as everyone around me.
I am soooo looking forward to being able to teach children and being able to say I am the first grandchild to go to college on both sides of my family and graduate!
I hope everyone's day is wonderful and fun!

Busy Month

December, the busiest month for my family. This month if full of Christmas shopping, doctor's appointments, birthday shopping, and anniversary shopping! On top of that I might be helping my sweet heart's father out in the annual Shop With A Cop program, not that I'm complaining because I'm not, last year was the first year I helped out and I LOVED it. I believe the best part was getting to see the eyes of all of those children glimmer and gleam with joy.
Also I have been singing Christmas music for a month already! I need to hurry up and get all of the gifts I need to buy so I can look forward to Christmas! Have a wonderful night/morning and week!!

A Splendiferous Out Come to a Dreary Day

When the alarm went off this morning I just knew today wasn't going to be the best day. It was rainy, kinda snowy and down right cold! All I had to look forward to really was getting to go to my favorite class and to get to hang out with my best friend, or so I thought. After my first class was over I find out my favorite class was canceled, after I called my ride home I slowly made my way across the frigged campus with stiff hands due to no gloves.
After I got home my day turned from down right awful to pretty much awesome! I found a pair of gloves, had fun running around acting like hooligans with my best friend and last but not at all least got to spend the rest of the afternoon with my sweet heart; from the time he got off from work to the time I had to start getting ready for bed  and he had to go home to do the same!
Well I am putting my family's Christmas tree up tomorrow with my sister so I had better rest up so I don't pass out at work tomorrow night. I guess it is time to say good night to a splendiferous day/night and hope I have another one tomorrow! Good night all!!

Rainy Day Gone Great

Ahh days like today normally make me want to cuddle up with a nice warm cup of hot chocolate and my sweetie watching a good movie, while the rain patters against the roof. However, today would have could have been one of those types of days it wasn't, today I went skating with my sweetie and my family (mom and sister) and went window shopping with him to get some sort of idea of what to get him for Christmas! 
Even though it was yucky mucky out it was still an awesome day! Hope everyone has a great rest of their day.

Ahhhh today has been a great day!! Baked some yummy cookies and got to see two of my favorite cousins. Best of all I got to see my awesome boyfriend!! 
Hopefully tomorrow will be as great as today especially since it is the Turkey Day!! Really looking forward to baking my annual pan of cornbread! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Nov 21, 2011


The weather today just screams for painting or laying around drinking hot chocolate or coffee while watching a good movie and crocheting. But instead of doing one of those fun things I am stuck working on college homework and procrastination but on the bright side Thanksgiving is just a few days away! 
Happy (early) Thanksgiving everybody!!

Reading, Reading, and more Reading

Ah there is nothing like having to read an entire book and have a book report written on it by November 22! The good thing is I am more then a fourth of the way done with it I think the rest will be skimmed in a hurry so I can be done with it.
I really need something to crochet while I read but I have no idea what to make, I guess inspiration will come to me when it is needed. If anyone has any ideas what to make I will gladly take them! Hope everyone has a wonderful day and stays warm.

Lovely fun

Ah there is nothing like having to work on your best friend's birthday and telling her you can't go out celebrating with her and she gets angry at you. I can't help it that I have to work!

This week is going to be so dang stressfull with a test today and big parties all week at work. This week will be extra long.

Tis the Season of No Pay Checks

Ah it is the time to start the long and expensive task of Christmas shopping. Since I almost never get to see some of the family that I have to shop for I am going crazy because I have no clue what to get them.
Oh and it really stinks that I don't just have Christmas to shop for I have birthdays and my one year anniversary to shop for! Well it stinks but its awesome at the same time because I am like very super happy to have all the people in my life whether it is from the time they were born or I was just introduced to them within this one year of my life.
Time to buckle down and do some shopping I wish everyone good luck in their Christmas shopping insanity (I am defiantly starting earlier next year)! If anyone has any idea what to get a four year old girl let me know please. :)

11/11/11 A.K.A. Veteran's days

Today is the day we celebrate the people that are fighting to protect this country I live but as I scroll down Facebook I notice almost all of my friends are to worried little things like the fact that today is 11/11/11 instead of thanking the solders, sailors, or any of the troops that have put their lives on the line so they can live here and think whatever they want.
So to all of the members I wish to say thank you for keeping me and my country safe.

A New Day

Ah yet another day day in the life of me! The weather looks bleak but I have a feeling that bring me down because for the first time in an extremely long time I am almost complete with a project that I started working on. So today maybe rainy and dreary to everyone else but to me it might just be a great day! Well all except for the homework I must complete for tomorrow and the housework that must be done but I have an older sister for that right? ;)
Well I hope every one's Wednesday is great and I wish my best friend safe travels as she travels to Virgina for the graduation of our friend from basic training.

Hello world!

Well I'm not sure how long I will be able to focus on this but I am going to try my hardest to stick to this. 
Hopefully now that the end of the semester is drawing near I will be able to find rest from all the stress that comes with the first semester of freshman year of college. I for see lots of pleasure reading and crochet in my future and many many many episodes of Doctor Who! :)
