America is officially stupid.

Lee over Crystal? Seriously? I thought this was supposed to be a singing competition.

A wedding, a date, and a job

The family went to Burlington, NC for my cousin's wedding on Saturday.  It was about three hours up and back, but it I'd say it was worth it. The ceremony was held in a really pretty church; I loved the stained glass windows. But one thing is for sure, I do not like going to weddings without a date. =( I missed Jimmie a lot! I'm just glad I did not have to be escorted down the aisle because then I would have been even more sad (and single looking).

The reception was really nice and there was a bunch of lovely food. Once I had a piece of that cake, I have been craving it ever since. I bought some cheese danish to try to curb the craving but it's not quite up to par. =) Anyway, the day could have only been better if it wasn't so rainy and sticky. And if Jimmie was there, of course.


 Sunday I went out with Shannon and Jimmie's mom to see Letters to Juliet and eat at California Pizza. It was a cute movie and I had lots of fun. I told Jimmie that I was going on a date with his family, and he got so jealous he logged off the computer and wouldn't respond! It was actually just facebook chat being dumb, but that was the last I have heard from him.


Monday was my first day on the job with Shannon. And you know what? We worked a whopping three hours and 40 minutes. That is going to be a super awesome paycheck. Actually, it is really is awesome since we got paid to fill out paperwork, have an hour lunch break, and go through orientation. I have my own key card to get in places, but I'm not cool enough to rate a name tag yet. I'm supposed to get it next Monday.

We saw a schedule of activities from last year and it looks like it's going to be a blast! We get to walk on the beach, help with paints and crafts, and make ice cream sundaes and floats. Sounds like heaven to me! I'm sure it will be fun, and I definitely don't think I'll be one of those people who posts facebook updates about how much they hate their job.


I just got my new phone in the mail yesterday and I love it. I got the Nokia (yeah, a Nokia) Nuron and I think it's awesome. It's a touchscreen and I like it way better than Jimmie's Storm already. I even get a free month of internet since we "have been customers for so long." Awesome. The part I'm most excited about is that I can actually transfer the pictures on my phone to my computer. Yes, I'm finally apart of the century and I'm happy to be here.

This is what it looks like

Caution: this will be scattered

You know it's summer when you can forget what day it is. It's a good feeling. =) And you know what else is a good feeling? This:

Only four classes, but still a nice accomplishment.


Today I went over to Jimmie's house to make him some baked goods with Shannon and his mom. Only, he got online so I talked to him while they baked. It was a nice system; for me, anyway. =) He is having a good time off the ship, which I thought he would, and it makes me feel much better about the situation. Now if only this deployment could be over...

Charleston was fun yesterday. Although I would never, never recommend going to Golden Corral on Mother's Day. I'm not a fan of crowds; I swear I'm claustrophobic. Apparently mothers don't like to cook on Mother's Day. Or go to church. As Crystal said very loudly (I am going to have fun with the strike-through, I can already tell) when she first walked in the restaurant, "What is with these Heathens? They should be in church!" It was kind of funny, but you probably had to be there. Or just know Crystal.

Anyway, I'm a horrible daughter and didn't take any pictures of my mommy. I took two pictures of Jack and that was it. Oh, well. I have the best mom in the world and I'm sure she is grateful I didn't bring out the camera.

Insanity is definitely for the insane

And I love it! It's way harder than p90x, and I basically stopped trying at the end, but I'll get there. This is a lot more cardio than just doing reps and that makes me happy. I'll definitely be a lot healthier by the end of these 60 days.

Here's the link if anyone is interested.

In Other News

I got a call from Jimmie! It was nice hearing his voice, even if he was a little upset that he had to switch platoons. But let me just say, it really sucks when the phone goes out after talking to your deployed boyfriend for only five minutes. But I'll remain optimistic and say it's better than nothing (because it is). Hopefully I'll get to hear from him before he goes out in the field. I guess I'll have to keep the phone cards coming since internet access on this part of the ship doesn't look promising.

And so it begins

I have no idea why I decided to start a blog. Maybe it's because a lot of the board girls have one and I became inspired. Or maybe it's because I deleted my Myspace and missed having something to make pretty. Whatever the case, I'm here! I figure now is as good a time as any since, after all, it is a beautiful, new month.

The Latest Happenings

  • I just finished my junior (senior) year of college and I'm officially a senior (super senior).
  • Jimmie is deployed and we just hit 50% today!!!!! Let me just say that nothing in this post really matters besides this little detail. =)
  • I have a job lined up at the end of the month, thanks to Jimmie's wonderful mom. I'm excited to work with Shannon and make some money! Now people can get off my back congratulate me.
  • I'm going to start Insanity on Monday. I was doing really well with p90x but then the Easter bunny left me chocolate. Then the last weeks of the semester were stressful so I needed even MORE chocolate. So yes, I had lots of food and no time to exercise.

A few pictures

I stole this from one of his friends on facebook. He's so stinkin' cute!

It's all downhill from here!
