Ok Bloggers- so many new things to tell you!

First off...

I got a JOB!

Found it on craigslist.com last Wednesday, talked to the guy and set up an interview Tuesday morning and they offered me the job! I am a working woman! I started today- it was busy. I created two new ads and a business card design for a rep. It's gonna be pretty busy these first few week! Just more stuff to ad to my portfolio!

Ok so now on the one of the best weekends EVER!

I drove down to Savannah on Friday morning... got there about 11 AM. It was almost exactly four hours.

Sarah & Matt have made their apartment such a beautiful home! Here are some pics of the cuteness that is Lincoln Street:

Sarah & I took Tahoe (her dog) on a walk around her block, then she showed me her hospital that she works at and then we headed downtown. We found a parking space FINALLY and walked around Broughton & River Street and did tacky tourist things. We went to the coolest store called the Paris Market. They sold vintage furniture mostly- but a TON of other totally random/somewhat useless things. See pics for some examples...

Go Cocks!

Next on the list- PAULA DEEN'S! We had dinner reservations @ 6PM for the Lady & Sons. It was so amazing- we got the buffet- garlic cheese biscuit, ho-cake, salad, fried chicken, low country boil, mashed potatoes, mac n' cheese, green beans, corn casserole, and peach cobbler.

I was NOT on my diet that night!

We went back to Sarah's & watched Twilight :o)

Saturday, we got up early & went to the gym (worked off all that bad stuff from the night before) came back & showered, then headed downtown. We ate at the CUTEST little café for lunch - The Express Café.

I felt like I was in Paris. I got a chicken salad sandwich & caesar salad, and then we split the most AMAZING bread pudding I've ever had in my life.

I'm not even kidding. We forgot to take a picture before we demolished it in a matter of 0.5 seconds. So this is all you get of it. Sorry!

We took a carriage ride around the historic part of Savannah. It was super fun b/c we were the only people & our driver was super nice. I took a ton of pictures-Savannah is the most beautiful place ever!

We went to City Market too so I could get my mom some pralines!

We also found a super awesome painting of a Westie that I totally would have bought if I was a millionaire... I took a picture instead and made it my background on my phone! How cute is he?

We then went to Gap before our Spa Day! The Gap in Savannah only has women's clothing- fine by me- and it was super big. The dressing rooms were really fun too- they wrote Sarah's name on the outside so she'd know where her stuff was! It was super cute & organized- two of my favorite things!

When we got there, we had a 30 minute massage...

Changed into robes... and waited in the super cute waiting room for them to come get us for the next thing. Since Matt booked us the Spa stuff... every time they called us, they'd say "Matt Party" or "Mr. & Mrs. Matt" and we were like... "that's us." It was funny.

While we were waiting we looked through some random magazines they had out... and Sarah found this awesome ad for a monkey baby doll that was NOT FOR CHILDREN. Seriously, the ad specifically said that.

Had a facial and then a manicure. It was such a fun experience- I'd never had a facial before- it was awesome how soft and fresh my face felt... it's definitely something I'd like to do more often!

When we left the Salon it was POURING rain. I'm not talking about a shower, I'm talking a CRAP LOAD of rain. It was scary- the storm was RIGHT over our head- before the lightening stopped the thunder had already CRACKED over our head. We hid in this honey store until it stopped raining long enough for us to run to our car. That night we all cooked something for dinner- Matt made chicken, Sarah made green beans & I made squash. It was a lovely meal :o)

Sunday, we got up and went to church. Matt & Sarah go to this church called Tapestry- it's a fairly new church, there were only about 40 people there, and it was in a movie theater- which was kinda cool. They had a band to do worship music and a great message about margins in our lives. We went to Wendy's for lunch and went back to Sarah's to change.

We went to Chippewa Square (FORREST GUMP SQUARE) to do all the cheesy Forrest stuff :o) We took so many pictures of everything Gump related. I couldn't help myself. It's my favorite movie of all time. Deal with it.

After that, we went to Bonaventure Cemetery - where parts of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil was filmed.

This was probably one of my favorite parts of the weekend- it was amazing. It was so cool to be standing in the same place that people 100 years ago were standing... It was just beautiful.

All of the azaela's were in bloom all over the cemetery. The Spanish Moss hanging off the oak trees was SO crazy. I kept doing 360's - I mean everywhere you looked it was beauty. Typical Southern City.

We had chili for dinner that night and watched Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil... interesting story- it all takes place in Savannah so we were all pointing out things that we knew of.. it was cool.

Monday I got up and packed and we went back to the Express Café for breakfast.

I got scrambled eggs w/ cheddar, whole wheat toast & spinach and feta quiche.

And I of course got some bread pudding to take home :o)

If you are still reading my ramblings about this weekend- kudos. Savannah is seriously my new favorite place and I CANNOT wait to go back!!

Weekend's finally here!

So I am off to Savannah for the weekend! I am super excited! I'm going to have a very informative blog when I come home to fill everyone in on the awesomeness!

Praise Report- Mom went to have her 6 month mammogram yesterday and she stayed to wait for the radiologist to read it. NO CANCER!!!!!! woo!! I knew all along, but mom tends to over excite/worry herself A LOT. It's been a little over a year now since she was first diagnosed, and gone through treatments - you can check out this blog to read more - but I'm so proud of her! She is doing physical therapy now to help gain more strength and movement back in her arm and chest area. I ask for your continued prayer for her health.

Ok bye everyone! Have a wonderful weekend!

Does it matter what time of the day laundry gets done?

I want to do laundry when I want to do laundry. Does anyone have a problem with that?

Need Custom Invitations?

So I totally forgot that I told Kiki I'd post some of my invites that I've made for some friends...


Most of these were inspired from other designs I found on-line. So if any of you are throwing showers this upcoming wedding season- let me know if you need any invites!

Praise Jesus!

It's not true!!

Monday Mania!

So it's Monday... again.

How did that happen?

As I was doing my morning reading of the gossip websites this morning I came across some disturbing news...

Josh Groban is dating Katy Perry.


A few things here...

#1 - Josh Groban should be dating me.

#2 - Katy Perry? Really? She kissed a girl. AND she liked it? What?

#3 - How can "You Raise Me Up" be with "UR so gay" even get along? What do they have in common? What do they talk about?

I just don't get it. Bah.

On a lighter note...

Made of Honor is available on Netflix! I can't wait!!!! I wanted to see it in the movie theater but it never happened. Yay for Netflix.

Today starts Phase 2 on South Beach!! I had some High Fiber cereal today! and I have some grapes for a snack! I'm pretty excited!

I also tricked Dad into watching Twilight with me last night. I had to watch it on the big screen, so if that meant Dad was there... oh well. Ha, he didn't hate it. I then stayed up till like 12 midnight watching all the extra stuff. At the end of the credits it had a little disclaimer that said:

"If you watched all of these credits you are suffering from OCD- Obsessive Cullen Disorder."


I'm already down like 12 games in my bracket... Dad & I are competing in total games won & Final Four. It's okay- all my final four are still in. We'll see how that goes though...

I'm also going to Savannah on Friday to visit Sarah & Matt! I cannot wait. I have never been and I am SO excited. We are going to Paula Dean's on Friday for dinner, downtown Savannah Saturday- day, then Matt- the best best friend's husband EVER- got us a spa day- a facial, manicure, AND massage!!!! woo!!!!! I think we're going to Monsters vs. Aliens on Sunday. It's going to be the best weekend ever.

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful start to the week!

Man. I'd really love some pancakes! Like five. With butter & lots of syrup.

Random statement? Not really.


Because my father decided to make them.

Can I eat them?

The death of me...


It by far is my most favorite thing in the world to do.

I bought this scarf the other day from Aéropostale.
If I had an extra$100 in my checking account I'd buy these things...

I AM buying this tomorrow!

I'd also like to get a manicure before I go to Savannah...

Maybe when I find a big girl job, I can make these dreams a reality.

P.S.- Today I walked 2 miles & cooked an amazing dinner- pork chops & asparagus! Yay for my Diet! I think I've lost total about 5-7 pounds in about 12-13 days. I need to use the same scale lol. Anyway- yay for getting healthy & active!
