I thought summer was supposed to be relaxing..

didn't you? Since I have been out of school summer has been even more busy for me! I'm working full-time, trying to get things ready for school, watching softball games, STILL working on the new house, seeing family, etc, etc, etc! And I could have sworn that I told myself to have a great summer because it was going to be my last summer for two years! But I dont want to complain because i'm starting Rad Tech school! And alot of me being busy has to do with getting things ready for school. Getting financial aid together, loans, buying books, finding good clinical shoes, buying scrubs, etc! I'm thankful to have an awesome mom who is helping me! We pay for most of my books out of pocket so I dont have to take loans out. Fortunately, I only have to take out loans for just 2 books this semester. Me and my mom found almost all of them on or for cheap! So all you college students, start looking on right now because the price of the books are going up on prices everyday it gets closer to school.

I have to take a moment and brag about Lance's little sister Hannah. Her softball team won state yesterday! I am so excited for them because they have worked EXTREMELY hard for this. The game was CRAZY! The other team was leading the whole game by 1-0, and then at the last inning we had 3 girls hit great balls and ended up 3-2! Here are some pics of hannah and the girls! Aren't their uniforms adorable?

Five Question Friday

Hallelujah it's Friday! This has been a busy week at work! And one of my favorite things about Friday is Five Question Friday! Head to Mama M's and check everyone out!

1. Do you know how to play a musical instrument?
I know how to play a rockin' air guitar! lol!

2. What is your pet peeve while driving?
Where should I start? I'm not going to lie, I have horrible road rage. I can't stand seeing little teenage girls runnin' their mouths or texting while driving. I can't stand when someone flies up behind me, trust me, i'll slam on my breaks in a heartbeat. I can't stand when people pull out in front of me and I have to slam on my breaks to miss them (you'll get a horn blown for that one!). And DO NOT drive in the left lane when your going 20 mph under the speed limit! Thats so annoying!...ok i'll stop now...on to the next question!

3. Would you rather have a housekeeper or unlimited spa services?
I do believe this is the hardest question i've ever had to answer! I lloovveee spas! But I also hate cleaning! But, I think i'll have to go with the unlimited spa services, because after i'm so tired from housecleaning, I can go get a massage!

4. Is there a song that you hear that will take you back to the moment, like a junior high or high school dance?
"Yeah" by Usher! It was prom. I remember gettin' down with my bad self and all of my friends to that song!! lol...good times!

5. What song best represents your life right now?
"Little White Church" by Little Big Town. Never heard of it? Then this song will be easier for you. "Single Ladies" by Beyonce. He just wont put a ring on it!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

My New Header!

Do you like my new header?! Well I do! and I made it all by myself!! Wooo!! It was to stressful though. I been working on it all morning, but finally got it. I dont like how my "Small Town Story.." is a tad blurry. I've tried reducing the font size but it still does it, so I just left it like that. Oh well. I went on and since I never used the "Quickmix", they gave me like free money..or whatever and I was able to use a template already set up. Then I just changed colors, took things out, rearranged, added photos and such!

This header will stick with me for a very long time! lol

I give up!

Ok I give up! I was trying to make my own header but things just aren't working out, for

1. I don't have the time to sit and really work on it &
2. I suck. period.

So, I was wanting someone to tell me where I could get someone to make one for me for a tiny fee! I dont want anything spectacular but I do want something super cute, but dont want to get charged a whole lot either. Does anyone know of someone, or even you can do it? Please comment!!

New Design

I'm working on a new design, so my blog is a little messed up right now. I'm hoping to get everything straightened out by this afternoon!

Five Question Friday!

I'm participating in Five Question Friday today! I haven't been able to do a Five Question Friday in weeks! I totally miss it.

1. What do you think makes a good friend, or friendship?
Trust! If you can't trust your friend, then theres no friendship there! My best friend knows every secret about me..and i know their safe with her.

2. What is the last thing you bought & later regretted?
The french fries last night. well actually, lance bought them, but I ate them. I've been doing so good with my dieting and those fries made me regret it. But I had a little to much wine last night as I was home by myself, folding laundry, and watching Dear John, so I figured I should eat a little something. lol!

Oh, and I have lost 10 pounds in one month! whoo hoo!

3. Have you ever had a prank played on you?
Oh yes, alot of them! They are to long of stories though, so i'll pass on this one.

4. What is your favorite theme park?
I haven't been to a theme park in forever! But I would have to say six flags. Only because of the memories I had there with my family and my great grandma.

5. Have you ever seen someone else give birth?
No, but I want to! I think I have decided I am going to let my best friend be in the room while I give birth. She said she would love to see someone else give birth besides her. So I hope with her next child, she will let me be in there! I think I would make a pretty good coach!

Stop by Mama M's blog and check her out!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Before/After Blog Hop

Today i'm participating for my very first time in Pixel Perfect's Before/After blog hop! I absolutely adore Monica. I have been following her for a few months now and she is one of my favorite bloggers. She's so sweet and has a huge heart for Jesus! Even if you do not want to participate in the blog hop, I highly recommend heading to her blog to check her out!

This picture was taken by my best friend of her little girl. I just bought her this hat from Briar Claire. It was taken by a cell phone, so it's not the best quality, but I had to share it with all of you!



I used the online editing program Picnik because, well, i'm a college student and cannot afford an expensive editing program right now. But one day I will! Here is another edited version just for fun!

If you are new to my blog, I hope you stop back by!
