what a month...

well.... i said I was going to post more often since I have SO much free time being unemployed, but I seem to have less free time. I know if i even log onto this site I will end up on it for hours looking at others posts ..... so I stay away. I hope all my blog friends are doing well. I am still job hunting and feeling very worthless right now. my severance runs out here in a few days and I will have NO money while i wait for unemployment checks to come in. First time in my life not having a job. No one is hiring right now. I am working out every day not which I am proud of. I don't want to gain back the 40lbs I lost this past year .....

Family is trying to be supportive. I have a smile on when anyone looks at me ..... maybe I should let them know just how depressed I am. I just hate for anyone to worry, but one more bad thing .... will push me over the edge.

oh ..... so last week I was shopping at TJMaxx. I went to leave the store and like 10 cops stopped me and asked me to wait before i left. I then noticed them cuffing a Latino man that i had noticed following me around the store. The police then asked me to step into the office to take a look at some video. well..... I was in for a surprise. The man had been following me around the store and when i would turn my back he would either take a picture of me .... OR DUCK UNDER A RACK and try to TOUCH ME. 5 times he hid..... and 5 times .... I moved just in time for him not to get his hands on me. He did however crawl on his hands and knees into the isle and manage to put his face close enough to my BUTT to kiss it ... (almost). I was in SHOCK. They arrested him for assault .... getting that close .... is assault here. If i had turned around and seen his face near me ..... I don't know what i would have done. He had pictures on his phone up women's skirts. ..... tons of them. Poor women. I am just glad he didn't actually touch me. I am not sure what that would have done to me mentally.

well...... I am off to weep.

rain rain .....

go away!!!!

I love rain ... when i am home with nothing to do. BUT when I have errands to run and a planned night out that may get cancelled, well ..... GO AWAY!!

Maybe this is God's way of telling me a few things. Maybe I should be happy I can put my hair in a pony tail when I get home, open the windows, enjoy the cats, and snuggle with my honey instead of going to the bar ..... maybe.

From God to lil me on a rainy day:
1. Hey speed racer .... slow down. (rain and leaves do not help my pickup truck stop quickly...errr.... **crash**!)
2. Hot rolled your hair this morning eh? ... ha .... here comes the rain!

3. Errands can wait, take a break to just enjoy the cleansing rain.

4. Eat lunch from the fridge and save some money!! (I go out way too much)
5. The local pub can live without you for a night! Stay home!!
well..... we will see. Maybe we can get tixs to the Bobcats basketball game instead!! that would be fun! Tomorrow night (rain or not) is Champagne Saturday at Amy & Billy's!! LOVE IT!!

have a good weekend!

my weekend ....

well... my weekend was pretty laid back. Went to a jewelry party at my BFF's house friday night ... no money makes for a sad girl when there are pretty jewels for sale. I left there and headed to Thomas Street Tavern for Chip's b-day!! YAY

Saturday consist i spent about 4 hours at the mall then headed to the White Water Center for the oyster (yuck) roast with Jen & Cole. Got there in time to grab a cold beer before the weather got cold. We managed to take over a fire pit and enjoyed the beginning of the evening. Later I headed to Terri's house for a random get together.... pretty uneventful.

All in all ....Things are looking up!! I am very hopeful and happy today!!

I got tagged ....

so I got tagged a while back by my new and most favorite blogger, Far at , and then again today by Christine at so to make the heavy post of the other day move further down my page i will play this game.

Ok so here's how the game works:
*Link to the person that tagged you (did that above)
*Post the rules on your blog
*Share six interesting things/habits/quirks about yourself - anything that comes to mind.
*Tag six people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs ... people you would like to know things about.
*Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

6 random things about me:

1) I love to drive fast. I drive a pick up truck and I LOVE to put on my baseball cap, roll the windows down, turn the music up... and SPEED!!

2) I love to cook.... for my man ...all kinds of food... love pasta and the more cheese the better!
3) I was hit by a drunk driver years ago and REALLY thought when it happened we were being bombed. It was horrible, but when the spinning finally stopped I was actually Glad to find out it was just some drunk Mexican and not the end of the world! I recovered pretty quickly

4) My best friend died 13 years ago... I miss him just as much today as I did the day he died. I still talk to him sometimes when i am alone. I hope he hears me ... and I can't WAIT until I get to see him in heaven.
5) I wish I had better legs. I hate my legs ..... when people talk about cankles .... well, that's me. I never wear shorts or short skirts and I HATE IT. But they are just not attractive and no matter how many trainers i work out with.... they are just gonna be that way.
6) I love Jesus. I am not a bible beater.... but I love the Lord. I am thankful on a daily basis to the point of tears. I know my life is not all I want it to be right now, but my faith makes my heart happy enough to look forward and know that no matter what i go through - the arms of Jesus are around me. And for my friends who do not believe.... i pray for you daily ... cause MY heaven would not be complete without YOU!!!

now it's time to tag 6 others: (forgive me and you don't HAVE to do it!)

did i really agree to this?

ok.... so in hunting for Halloween costumes this weekend we ran into some major issues like:

(1) VERY cheap looking costumes for WAY too much money

(2) not too many good ones for couples

(3) lack of time and stores.

(4) we ended up actually fighting due to the pressure.... :(

So in the heat of looking I agreed that if my beau could just find something HE liked I would do whatever to make it a couples costume. Well, me and my big mouth got me into the tackiest costume .... (This was not HIS first choice, but it made us BOTH laugh so hard that we HAD to do it!)

YES, that is a SNAKE coming out of the crotch area of the man's costume. And NOOOOOOOO the female costume does NOT look like that in person. It's HORRIBLE. So i returned mine and he has yet to know that I am actually going to make my own...... yes .... I WILL make a costume. Pray for me :) Pictures to follow next weekend!!

my point of view...from my phone

So my Saturday afternoons generally consists of sitting at the local coffee shop while my beau does some work on his laptop. And just lately have I had access to a computer myself to do some web surfing, but this weekend I couldn't get connected. I normally read my book but forgot it ..... so I cleaned out my cell phone. Yeah, fun right? I hate it when I have a persons number but i have no clue who they are .... David??? Scott??? Sarah??? who are you guys? DELETE :)
Anyhoo...I figured a good post would be "pictures from my phone". So here are a few (and yes ... there are some I can not post due to .... .well... "for my eyes only" content) But here are a good handful..

I would love to see some of yours .... so let me know if you post any!

Lethargic or in love?

My cat has diabetes and I started giving him injections on Monday. He was acting like he felt well but kind of silly and overly loving. I called the vet and asked what signs I should be looking for in the cat as to show a bad reaction or low glucose.

Vet said "is the cat acting lethargic?"

I said "well, he's laying around, drools on me, and wants to fall all over me"

Vet said "well you better bring him in... sounds bad"

I laughed and said "but he always acts this way"
Vet said "he must just be in love"

So it got me to thinking. Being in love is a lot like being lethargic (Lacking mental and physical alertness and activity, sluggish, out of it). It is amazing that when you are "in love" sometimes you do not react to things the way normally would. I step back and look over past relationships and think "what was I thinking?". Too bad for me that I can't blame it on a drug induced lethargic state. I have no excuse other than i was "blinded by love".

But is that possible - to be blinded by love? Do we let people walk all over us when we are "in love"? And is it really love if we are willing to let that person walk on us?

Always a bridesmaid ...never a bride......really????

I have been a bridesmaid in over 15 weddings. I generally brag about it because it is nice to look back and think that all of those girls wanted me by their side on the big day. But now .... here in my thirties and STILL single.... I look back and wonder if it will ever be me. YES - I shout at the top of my lungs - I WANT TO BE MARRIED ONE DAY. I really wish I had a crystal ball that I could look into just to get an idea of what the future holds.....

so my reason for this post was to put up some fun pics. Cause I love pictures. Here are a few from my the last wedding!!! and then a few from some that I found from past ones!

Jennie & Cole ..... LOVED IT!!

Here are a few from past weddings .... Terri & Gregg

erin & todd (bf!!)
