So Thankful It's Thursday!

Happy Thursday!

I'll be the first to admit that I'm exhausted this morning.
I'm in serious need of a pick me up,and have honestly thought about skipping the lunch I brought and hitting up Chic-Fil-A just to get me a big FAT diet coke! It sounds so good right now!

I've been kind of slow this week in the blogger world.
It's been a really strange, dragging by, yet speedy week.
I know, that's a total contradiction, but that's honestly how it has felt.
It has just been a weird week.

And next week I have a test, so I should be preparing for that now... *sigh*
Its Ok Thursdays
It's OK
...That I could so fall asleep at my desk right now
...That I STILL haven't worked out once this week
...That I've been too wiped out at night to actually work out
...That I'm looking forward to sleeping in Saturday
...That I want Chic-Fil-A (I know, I'm horrible)
...That literally crave fountain drink diet coke (they are so much better than can coke)
...That I've hit the snooze button every day this week
...That I think these college students need a beating (no respect, courtesy, and really are just plain rude)
 ...That I see some sort of chocolate in my future LOL
I'm Thankful...
For the snooze button... the extra five minutes is so nice!
For my home... may not seem like much but My husband and I have a place of our own
For my car that gets pretty good gas mileage...It is a definite blessing
That God is in control of it all
For my teeth... they have done a great job at biting my tongue so far this week
For God's love and mercy... I know I don't deserve it, but he gives it anyways!
For my jacket... because I have been cold all week
Hope you all have a great Thursday! :)

5 for Five

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great day!
Mine has been kind of busy... and then there was class! :p

I'm not very fond of school at the moment,
But you probably already knew that, because I rant about it all the time.
Anyways, I'm running short on time, so I have to throw in another quickie today...
Sorry for so many of those lately! :(

Today is our 5 for Five! Let's take a look at last week's goals!


1. Prepare a menu and grocery list
I got this done, forgot to print it out, had to remake it because I done it on my work computer. Then spilled juice on that one, so I ended up doing that stupid list three times. I should get double points for that!

2. Get a cleaning schedule up
Unfortunately I didn't get this done, and I really should have... ugh
3. Finish my online work for the week.
I got it all finished, only to find out last minute that he posted another quiz. Grr!!
Thankfully though I got it done thirty minutes before it was due.

4. Straighten up my bookshelf
Totally done this! I even took pictures!


5. Exercise at least 3x this week
Yeah, I didn't do this! *sigh* 

Okay, so three out of five. I'm wanting to get four out of five next week.

New Goals!

1. Work out at least 3x
I have got to get the ball rolling!
2. Call my doctor
I think it is time for my annual (or at least around that time), but I don't have an appointment date.
I better find out!
3. Go through my top cabinets
This really needs to be done. I need better organization
4. Work on my blanket some more
I didn't get to work on it at all last week!
5. Drink only 3 thirst busters
I really have a problem with these things... I'm addicted to their diet coke!

Living By Faith

Hey guys!
I hope everyone is having a great Friday!
I've already hit a few bumps in the road this morning, but I'm still feeling good.
I guess that is what happens when you finally just give it all to God.
As I think over all the things going on, not just in my life, but in that of my family,
My mind asks God.. Why?
Why are we going through this?
Why is this happening?
Why aren't you doing something?
However, I've learned that there comes a time when you need to stop asking "Why"?
Sometimes, you just have to truly give it to God and let it go.
It is always easier said than done, of course.
But the truth is, being a believer, doesn't mean you are exempt from the hard times.
Being a believer, doesn't mean that you will never go through things.
Being a believer means that you have someone to fall back on when those times come.
God allows you to go through the things you do, to build your faith.
How can you build your faith, if you are constantly doubting him?
Saying you are giving it to God, and then consistently worrying, questioning and doubting, isn't really faith building is it?
It is easy to become discouraged.
After all, patience isn't something we are necessarily born with.
And it is overly difficult to be patient and have faith when you don't see how things are working out.
However, II Corinthians 5:7 states
For we walk by faith, not by sight...
Meaning that, just because you don't see how it is going to work out, doesn't mean that God isn't already in the equation, making sure it all adds up right.
Your job isn't to remind God of your problems and tell him how to fix it.
After all, God is all-knowing, and definitely has a better idea of all the variables than we do ourselves.
Your job is to go to him in prayer, believing BY FAITH, that he will take care of it.
And I'm not just talking about for the moment, but believing every day, every moment, withholding your doubt and worries, and KNOW that He will take care of you.

After all, it was promised in his word that he wouldn't leave us with our problems...

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. so that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. ~Hebrews 13:5-6

God even told us to give to him our problems, that he would bear it for us....

Come until me, all ye that labour and are under heavy laden, and I will give you rest. ~Matthew 12:28

Am I saying I will never worry or doubt again when I feel I'm drowning in trials?


What I am saying, is that I want to remember his words and promises.
I hope to remember that seeing isn't believing...
After all, the redeemer came to the earth doing wonders and miracles and was rejected by those who seen these mighty works.
Faith is believing, even when we do not see progress being made.

So the next time I am facing a situation that doesn't seem to be working out,
I want to push all my anxiety, doubts, and worries out of the way, and believe.
For God will never leave me to face it alone.

Just something to think about!

Hope you guys have a great day!

It's OK to be Thankful Thursday! :)

Happy Thursday!

Today is a great day!
I actually feel really accomplished this week!
And let me tell you, it is a good feeling!

Also, I just wanted to share with you that...
I totally got a parking spot early yesterday on campus!!!
For those of you who have read my previous posts know that finding one..
A. Takes forever.
B. Is a nightmare
C. Never happens early

However, yesterday I got a parking spot early,
 and then got to go and spend a few minutes with my husband and daddy!
It was a nice bonus to my day!

Now it's link-up time!
Its Ok Thursdays
It's OK
...That I'm having a really good week
...That I totally had a "beat up on myself" moment last night despite my good week
...That I only had one box to move from packing up my office so the carpet could be replaced (Sad, I know, but I was appreciative of my lack of stuff to be packed up)
...That I'm excited about Young Adults Service tomorrow (even if I am a little nervous about doing the lesson)
...That I am learning to accept things
...That I have completed my school work for the week
...That I am looking forward to some of my recipes I'm trying out next week
...That I'm looking forward to this weekend!
I'm Thankful...
For my husband who doesn't mind holding me when I need it
For my pillow... truly it's an amazing pillow
For my memaw who bought me said pillow
For my mom and dad, couldn't imagine going through the things I have without them being there
For Microsoft word and the Internet (They make my life easy when making grocery lists and menus)
That Blogger was created, so I could use it as an outlet
Yo ho, Yo ho, a Pirates life for me (Pirates of the Caribbean, anyone?)
Cell phones (What would we do if we didn't have song pop and facebook?)
Google.. (its a life saver!)

Sneak Peak....

Hello Everyone!
Today, I'm super excited to say...
That I've got all of my facial recipes that I am going to be trying or have tried typed up.
I'm sure that there are more out there that I will eventually want to try,
However, these are just the one's that I am already loving or that I'm serious about trying in the near future.
I thought I would give you guys a little sneak peak at what I've been working on...
I'm not finished with the design yet, though.
I'm being way too picky for something that I'll be the only one looking at...
However, I'm still not satisfied with the design...
So I'm just going to keep playing until I am...
I also thought about posting the scrubs/masks that I'm doing on a consistent basis.
Let me guys know if you'd be interested in hearing my thoughts about the facials, body/lip scrubs, dry shampoo, etc. that I try... :)

Projects Fo Sho...

Ola Cheerio Maties!

I hope everyone is having a great Monday night!
Mine was filled with Christian Music and skates...
Oh yeah...
And I didn't fall once!
(Thank you, Jesus, for small blessings)

Tonight was the monthly Christian Skate Night held at a local skating rink.
The youth pastor had a van load of our young people that they took over there and a few others, including my husband and myself, met them over there.
I have to say, even on the days I'm super tired, I still enjoy going.
It makes me feel young again and brings back memories from when we used to host our own Christian Skate Night there.

So now I'm at home, letting my nail polish dry on my toes (yay they look pretty again), while I have a million ideas going through my mind about different little projects that I want to do.

I want to make my own recipe book.
I want to get a pretty binder and have all my recipes printed out and categorized inside.
This way, I have them all handy when I need them!!!

I'm into homemade (DIY) facials.
Homemade scrubs, masks, toners, etc..
I do them!
Therefore, I need another folder/binder, just for these!

I've been crocheting it since last summer.
And then when school hit, I stalled out on it.
But now I desperately want to finish it!
Only then can I feel "guilt-free" about moving onto a new crocheting project

I want a binder of my grocery lists.
What I want to start doing is start getting prices of all the items I like/buy and keep them.
This way I know about how much something will cost before I go grocery shopping.

Umm... can I get some extra hours in the day please?!?!?

I'm thinking about starting on one of the smaller projects first.
These are going to take time, but I'm desperately wanting to do them.

Any ideas on what I should do first, and anyone have any ideas/suggestions for me on the best way to do it?
I would love the input! 

5 for Five

Happy MLK everyone!

Today I was off work!
So I celebrated my house

Yep, I cleaned my house and then went and visited my Nannie
My Nannie is my great, great aunt, but she'd always been more of a grand-parent.
She ended up making me and my husband one of her famous pound cakes.
I went over to get it and stayed visiting with her for over an hour and a half.

I love talking with her!
I love hearing her stories
I love talking to her about life in general
And she can give some of the best advice.

In fact, today she inspired me to want to be more dedicated to my menu planning and grocery shopping.
Since I begin getting paid every two weeks this Friday, I'll be able to start planning a two-week menu.

Anyways, back to the post at hand.

Today is our 5 for Five! Let's take a look at last week's goals!


1. Get all my clothes washed and put up
I'm giving this a green. All the clothes were washed and put up, except for the very last load. I think that's pretty darn good myself

2. Get my School stuff organized
I got it as organized as I can get it... #BlehSchool

3. Begin working on the junk room.
So I was going to do this, but, yeah... I didn't

4. Try something new/different this week.
Last week was kind of a blur... I can't remember trying anything new, though. *sigh*

5. Go through my clothes drawers
Yeah,  I didn't accomplish this either.

So obviously I didn't do very well on my goals last week!
I definitely need to do better this week!

1. Prepare a menu and grocery list
I get paid Friday, therefore Saturday need to be grocery-shopping day!

2. Get a cleaning schedule up
I need some kind of daily "this is what I'm going to do". This way I'm keeping my house cleaned while accomplishing those little things that I really want to get done.

3. Finish my online work for the week.
It is Due Sunday... must get this done quickly!

4. Straighten up my bookshelf
I'm looking at it now, and realized just how out of order it is. I've just been randomly picking out books lately and then just setting them back on the shelf and not where they actually go. So, it's time to get them back together by Author.

5. Exercise at least 3x this week
At this moment I just want to be a little more active...

That is all for today!
I'm off to get ready for our Christian Skate Night! :)

My God is Awesome

Finally Friday, I'm free again.
I got my motor running for a wild weekend
It's finally Friday I'm out of control
Forget the working blues and let the good times roll
To all you country fans...
 you probably were singing along as you read the lyrics! :)
You have to love that song by George Jones.
It totally gets you geared up for that time you get to clock out of work and let the weekend begin
If you haven't heard it, you should definitely to YouTube it!
Ola, Cheerio Maties
(anyone else ever seen Miranda Sings on youtube? lol)
I hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday, even if it's only 8:32 a.m.
Today I actually woke up alone, got dressed alone, and drove to work alone.
My husband got up this morning and went hunting at an ungodly hour...
So I spent the entire morning by myself.
When I used to drive to work by myself all the time, I used my driving time as my praying time.
I would have my music on 88.1 or 94.1 (our contemporary christian stations), and just talk to God.
So this morning, since I was by myself, I found myself once again falling into that.
Except, this time I turned my radio off and found a song on YouTube that I'd been thinking about...
I have no idea the church/choir who sang it on the video, all I know is that they are super anointed.
I love those moments, where I'm in the oddest places and I feel totally surrounded by his presence.
As I sang along with the song, and let the lyrics settle inside my heart, my eyes filled with tears.
My God is Awesome
He can Move a Mountain
Keep me in the valley
Hide me from the rain....
All I could think was how true this was.
My God has never forsaken me.
Never left me alone
I may have felt alone, but it wasn't because he'd left me.
It was because I'd left him.
I'm not the perfect prayer warrior, where I pray two hours every day
In all honesty, sometimes I barely get to pray five minutes (sad, I know)
But, even when it's been a while since I've spoken to him... He's still there when I'm ready to.
After I got to work, I took a few minutes to open my Bible.
I found myself in St. John, where Jesus was in the garden, praying.
He knew what he was going to have to do,
yet his prayers in that chapter were mostly for those around him...
Not for himself.
It makes me realize just how much I was/am loved.
For God so loved the world (aka me),
That he sent his only begotten Son
That whosoever believeth in him
Should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Now that is truly awesome....
Hope you all have a great day!

Thankfully, It's OK

Hello again!
I'm so happy it's Thursday!
Thursdays always get me excited,
because it means we are on the downhill slope
 And tomorrow will be Friday!
So first off on this Thursday, I just wanted to apologize.
I've basically only been doing link-up's since last week
However, I've been sick since last Thursday
I literally didn't do anything but lay on a couch or bed for almost four days straight.
Which means I've done nothing interesting to write about.
Hence the link-ups.
And speaking of link-up's...
I will, of course, be doing It's OK
But I also read a post by Faith Love & Babies where she done a "Thankful Thursday".
So I kind of wanted to do that as well!
Its Ok Thursdays
It's OK
...That I was sick for nearly a week.
...That I have a headache this morning (bleh)
...That I love seeing/hearing my mom laugh (maybe that's weird, but seeing her laugh totally brightens my day)
...That I my sister and I text sometimes past 11:30 while we are laying in the bed with our husbands (My husband said he didn't understand why we done that after we first got married. I guess now he's just learned to accept it hehe)
...That I enjoy doing link-ups and reading everyone's posts
...That I'm already slacking in the school department (must do homework!)
...That I'm both excited and dreading the fact that we are starting P90x today
...That I get nervous about speaking in front of people, especially when it's about personal things
...That I'm a total foundation junky (I want to try them all so I can find the BEST one)
...That I miss my sister living two seconds away from me
...That I actually feel pretty good about my skin right now (not perfect, but the clearest it has been in a while)
...That I love making homemade facials/masks/scrubs
...That I'd rather do my blog than do school work.  
If you want to link-up, click here
I'm Thankful...
For my husband, who has taken such great care of me and the house while I've been sick
For my parents, who bought me sudafed last night when they went to publix
For my memaw who also risked the germies to bring me orange juice
That I still have a good job with a great boss
That I am able to go to school (even if I hate it with an ever-loving passion)
For my awesome church friends/family who checked up on me while I was out sick
For the dry shampoo my friend, chelly, told me about. (lifesaver for real)
For the cute necklace my memaw gave me (and the earrings to match...oh yeah)
For 75 cent Thurst Busters from the Circle K (it's my coffee)
That I have two pairs of super cute and comfy sandals that will go with just about anything I wear
That my sister and I can make each other smile/laugh even in the worst of times
For this link-up (It makes me realize how much I truly have to be thankful for, big or small)
Hope everyone has a super great Thursday!

It's Wednesday!

Hello Everyone!

I hope everyone is doing fabulous on this Wednesday!
I don't know about you guys, but I'm glad today is Wednesday..
I'm feeling better today, even though my ears still feel like they are clogged.
Hopefully that will be going away soon.

So I was thinking today that I totally take my good health for granted
Being sick this last week, has reminded me how much I really love to feel good.
I love having energy and not feeling fatigue.
I love the drive to do things, whatever it is, it doesn't really matter.
I love to be healthy.

Another thing I was thinking about was school.
I'm already wanting to slack in my classes.
I'm finding that with each semester it gets worse and worse!
This is only the second week!!
Anyone have any advice on how they stay motivated with school?
I'm not a slacker by no means.
I love making good grades, but I'm just getting so burnt out!
I need help!!

Enough Rambling!

5 for Five

Hi Everyone...

Unfortunately, I'm still under the weather, so I'm posting from home today.
As we all know, it's Monday again, and I hope everyone is having a great day so far.
So I'm just going to jump right into my 5 for Five


So let's check out my goals from last week...

1. Get up at 6:30 the rest of this week...
I actually was up before this time each day last week, because my husband ended up riding with met three of those days, which means I HAD to be up to get him to work on time lol.

2. Try one more new makeup look this week
I ended up trying another makeup up look, but wasn't too pleased with it. As the saying goes, if at once you don't succeed, try again!

3. Eat out for lunch only ONCE this work week
I failed on this one and ate out twice... *sigh*

4. Say nothing negative about myself
I don't recall saying one thing negative about myself! :)
5. Work on my blanket...
I actually have done this! I didn't start until later on in the week, but I've still been working on it.

Four out of five isn't bad! And I actually think it is the first time I've done this well on my goals.
Now onto my goals for this week..

1. Get all my clothes washed and put up
My husband has been so good to me while I've been sick and started it, but I want to get it finished

2. Get my School stuff organized
Have to keep up with this since I have an online class

3. Begin working on the junk room.
Need to start going through the desk and all so I can organize it how I want.

4. Try something new/different this week.
I'm a habitual person, and don't usually stray from anything that I haven't tried or done already

5. Go through my clothes drawers
Need to get rid of all those things that I don't ever wear.

What are you goals for the week?
Hope every single one of you have a GREAT Monday!

A Little Something You Didn't Know...

Hello Everyone,

So I'm sitting on my couch at the moment waiting for my NyQuil to kick in.
Yes, I've been sick since Thursday night, and have been on some form of couch or bed since then.
It sucks horribly.

I figured that while I was waiting, that I would try to post SOMETHING since I've been totally out of the Blogger world since Thursday.

Ricci from A Beautiful Mess posted a little "get to know me" questionnaire a few weeks back and gave me permission to borrow it. I've basically been saving it for a time when I has nothing to talk about.
Since I've been sick, and I'm doped up on meds, I figured now would be the perfect time.

So here it goes!

A-Age: 23...

B-Bed Size: Queen....which I share with my husband and usually end up right under him. I don't know how he stands me some nights

C-Chore You Hate: Hanging up clothes... I'd rather fold clothes any day
D-Dogs: I have two...Salem (my mama) and Ford (one of her puppies we kept)

E-Essential Start to Your Day: Lately, it has been 75 cent Thirst Buster Diet cokes from the Circle K. That is my coffee
F-Favorite Color: I basically like all colors, minus some pastels.
G-Gold or Silver: Silver, though I'm like wearing gold some now days

H-Height: 5'7.... I think

I-Instruments You Play: I play the piano and drums a little, but I don't usually play them in church or anything

J-Job Title: Human Resources Assistant

K-Kids: Not yet... but soon I hope
L-Live: Florida... the bi-polar, sunshine state, where we only have a good month of Winter, which is usually AFTER Christmas

M-Married: Yes... My husband and I had our 1 year anniversary last November.

N-Nicknames: Ree or Ree Ree... I used to have a bunch of crazy one's that my best friends made up, but I won't go into those.

O-Overnight Hospital Stays: Never... Thank God!

P-Pet Peeves: Dirty bathrooms... speaking of, I need to clean mine. (Yuck)

Q-Quote: For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7

R-Righty or Lefty: Righty

S-Siblings: One older sister and one older brother (I'm the baby)

T-Time You Wake Up: 6:20...unfortunately.

U-University You Attended: Going to Florida State University now...hopefully I'll be graduating next year

V-Vegetables You Dislike:  Cauliflower, asparagus, not a fan of celery (unless I have ranch) In fact... i have to have something with most of my veggies... I know, that's sad.

W-What Makes You Run Late? Hitting my snooze button

X-X-rays You Have Had: Not a one...
Y-Yummy Food: I love food, period!

Zoo Animal Favorite? Tigers, though I always felt uber bad for them locked up the way they are!

Feel free to copy and fill it out yourself! I'd love to read it.
Hope everyone has had a great night and has a wonderful Sunday!

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Oh How Pinteresting....

Hello All!
I hope everyone is having a great week so far.
Mine has been kind of  on the "eh" side, meaning not great but not as bad as it could be.
I'm just thankful it's a new day, and I'm in it.
Today is one of those acceptance days...
Accept the things I was bummed about yesterday
Accept that sometimes things just are what they are
Accept that you can't change things
Patience is a virtue that I'm totally lacking in.
When I finally reach that point where I want to do/change/whatever something... I want it done then.
Unfortunately life isn't like that, and God usually has his own timing 
I may not understand it
I may not like it
But I still have to roll with it, which is what I'm accepting now
It always takes me a day to be bummed, rant, or whatever, and then I'm just like, okay, this is how it is.
So today is my acceptance day
I'm not stressing what I can't change
I'm not stressing anything
Yesterday was tough and so was Monday
But today is Wednesday... a new beginning separate from either of those other days.
And thankfully with Wednesday, comes OHP.
I like this link, because it totally lets me exploit my random side
In this post I can post pictures from Cupcakes to Horseshoes (hahaha those who haven't read my sister's blog should click here), and I'm totally justified in it! Or I can revolve it around a certain them. It's so versatile.
So let's get it started!!!!! :)

How cute is this! Alice in Wonderland, anyone?

Totally told my husband to do this for the house... he could so do it!

Greek yogurt and peanut butter.... I so want to try this!

Homemade swiss roll... I'm drooling!

Free crochet pattern for these boots...
I'm so doing it!

Cute! :)

hahaha I died when I read this!


Can I have him, please!!!!!!

I liked this....

So true!


I thought this was so cute! <3


Hope all you guys enjoyed  my OHP, and can't wait to see all of yours!

Hello everyone!
So I'm sitting at work today,
And have zero motivation.
For some reason I'm uber tired,
And my mind feels totally shot.
So I went to class yesterday for the first time this semester.
All I can say, is what a flippin' nightmare.
This is the first semester that I have a class that starts later in the day (@ 12:30).
Usually I'm there early in the morning where I would usually park in my husband's employee parking lot.
However, he has been moved to a new building and my class doesn't start until mid-afternoon, so off to work I go first.
So when I go to park yesterday, I nearly end up late for class.
Have I mentioned how much I hate FSU's campus???
Well I do.
I'll be so glad when I finally have that degree and can put the college life behind me
I mean... 63 dollars to rent a book that isn't even as thick as my Bible is totally ridiculous.
Can I get an amen!?!
Anyways, I hope all of you guys started back class had a better time at finding a parking space than I did.
Hope you guys have a great Tuesday!

Five for 5

Hello everyone!
It's Monday once more
 I'm sure everyone mentally groans while hearing that,
However, I'm choosing to smile instead.
I'm not going to take for granted the start of a new week that God has given me
Nor will I take for granted waking up on a brand new day
(Even if it was too early for my taste)
Work may not be the on our top list of fun things to do
But it pays my bills and keeps food in my belly
So I won't take my job for granted either.
With a new Monday comes a link-up that I thoroughly enjoy doing.
Since the Holiday's I've slacked on my Five for 5 posts, but I'm back on it now.
I can' honestly say I've missed my weekly goals that I would set and blog about.
Without further ado...


I didn't have goals set for last week, so I'm going to jump right into my goals for this week!
1. Get up at 6:30 the rest of this week...
I so didn't get up at 6:30 when my alarm was set this morning... I totally snoozed it. I do this too often and want to get up early enough so I'm not in a complete rush, now that I'm no longer riding with my husband to work.
2. Try one more new makeup look this week
I totally tried something a little different this morning with my hair and makeup. I actually parted my hair in the middle this morning (something I never do and I think I like it). And then I done something so simple, but different than what I normally do with my makeup. So now I want to challenge myself once more... I'm in a makeup rut and need to mix it up some.
3. Eat out for lunch only ONCE this work week
I ate out two times last week at chic-fil-a... not good. So I'm narrowing it down.
4. Say nothing negative about myself
Sometimes I do this without even really thinking about it, like it's a default setting. I don't like it and I'm changing that.
5. Work on my blanket...
I've been crocheting a blank for my sister, that I started last summer. When school hit I totally took a hiatus from it. Now I really want to get it finished for her and complete my first crocheting project! 

What are you goals for the week?
Hope every single one of you have a GREAT Monday!
