New Header!

So I finally made a custom header! Thought I'd mix it up. I really like the way it turned out!

Some traveling news... I think I'm going back to Savannah this weekend! I cannot wait to see Sarah!

I also got a new windshield put in today. I had a leak in my car that we thought was coming from my sunroof, but turned out was the seal of the windshield. Whatever, I'm just glad it's fixed and hopefully my car will stop smelling like mold.

I hope everybody had a great Monday!

Happy Wednesday bloggers!

We ended up staying an extra day in Virginia this weekend so I didn't get back til yesterday. I have seriously spent ALL day today loading pics, editing pics & reading all 500+ blog posts I missed out on over the weekend! My eyeballs are definitely dried out now, but it was totally worth it!

Since I am currently unemployed, I'll be spending a lot more time on the MacBook looking for a new job and hopefully blogging more! In the mean time, here are some pics from our family get-together in Harrisonburg, VA. Be back tomorrow!

Here we all are!

I am so slack!

I really have been the worst blogger ever! I am so sorry!

I am going out of town tomorrow for a family get together in VA. We are going to a water park which I am SUPER excited about! So excited that I may or may not have gotten two new bathing suits.

Anyway, I'll be back Monday- hope you all have an amazing weekend! <3

Weekend Wrap-Up

Ok lovies- here it is- the weekend wrap-up!

Friday, I got my hair done, went to the dentist--no cavities!--and had the Thirty-One party. It was fun to get some girls together and shop for purses! I ended up getting this fun flat-iron case. And a few other things :o)

Saturday I met up with some friends for lunch and then hit up the mall. I LOVE this dress from GAP. I have it in black and blue, and now cream & beige! Hooray!

We went to the Melting Pot for Emma's Mom's birthday dinner. Let me say, that restaurant is the For real. We had the cheese, a few meats (since my mom had never been there she wanted to try everything), and then dark chocolate for dessert. Ahhhh-Mazing! It was a super fun girls' evening!

Sunday I woke up with a sore throat so I kinda took it easy and was a bum. It was great. Sarah came over and we played some Wii Resort. It is such a fun game! I'm sad she's going back to Savannah, but hopefully it won't be long before we reunite!

I also gave myself a manicure. ::A little background info- I have gotten acrylic nails from 9th grade til sophomore year of college. I finally quit the habit, but I've hated my natural nails. I've actually finally gotten them thicker and healthier, so now they look super good! Anyway, I am proud of my real nails :o)::

I'm supposed to hear back from the job in Cola today- I'll let ya know how that works out.

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday! I'm going for sushi tonight- be jealous :o)

It's been a while...

Ok first off- I am so sorry it's been so long since I've blogged! Who knew not having a job would keep me so busy?

I've been hanging out with some friends this week since they go back to school (the teachers). Today is my friend Emma's birthday- Happy Birthday Em! We went to Bonefish for dinner- yum-o-!

Me, Emma & Jenna

Emma's Mom, Me, Emma & Jenna

Tomorrow I'm having that 31 party that I am so looking forward to!

Saturday Emma, her mom, my mom and myself are going out for a special surprise birthday dinner for Emma's mom that I can't wait for! Pictures will surely follow :o)

I've also been working on some baby announcements that I'll be sure to post once I get the okay from the momma, but MAN they are cute!

I had a phone interview on Monday with my church in Columbia for an admin assistant position, so hopefully I'll be hearing back from them tomorrow or Monday. I might be moving back to Cola! I'm excited/nervous about it though- I have no idea where I'm going to live!

Oh and guess what- I WON A GIVEAWAY! yay!!! Angela at Sweet Tea Diaries was the host and I won a Lilly Pulitzer luggage tag from LWhelan Designs!

I'm so excited! I can't wait to put it on a suitcase!

I promise I'll try to be better with commenting- I really have been busy, but I have been reading! Hope you all have a wonderful Friday and a super fun weekend!
