New Enemy

     So boyfriend decided that he wanted to buy a playstation 3 ... so he went to target and got one.  He was all excited and I do have to admit I was excited at first.  I wanted to play some games and watch some blu-ray movies but now I am starting to rethink his purchase.  All the boy wants to do is play that daggum thing and I don't know how I feel about it.
     Tonight the whole family got together to watch American Idol (YAY SCOTTY!) but instead of watching American Idol guess what boyfriend did... alright I will tell you ... he played his daggum playstation.  I am either going to have to become an expert gamer or take up knitting or something or maybe i'll through the playstation out the window!  

But gosh aren't we cute?  

Since boyfriend is so adorable ... I guess the playstation can stay.

Lazy Days

    Today is a lazy day.  I slept in and then pretty much didn't do anything after that.  I have decided that I love lazy days and that it should happen on a weekly basis or maybe even on a daily basis ... too much?  All I got accomplished today ... well actually I didn't get anything accomplish today.  Oh well!
     I did however play with my dog, Lexie.  She is the love of my life.  She is absolutely adorable.  As soon as I woke up this morning the first thing I thought about was how hungry I was.  So I walked downstairs and put a bagel in the toaster.  Then I saw her standing there looking at me.  I got her a bowl of food so she wouldn't be hounding me for my food, but well that never really happened.  She sat there the entire time with that cute little face and sad eyes and I ended up giving her half my bagel.  So much for a hardy breakfast.

Isn't she adorable?     

Now I need to get up and do something with my life or maybe I'll just go and watch a lifetime movie.  Oh how I love summer.

      I leave Florida tomorrow morning and I have had the best time!  Boyfriend and I went to Orlando for a few days.  We went to Universal Studios where I got to become a little kid again.  Of course the first place I wanted to go was the Harry Potter World.  It was amazing.  I made sure to go into every single shop, watch every single preformance, and ride every single ride.  I rode some of them twice.  I also made sure to take one thousand a lot of pictures just so that I could remember every detail.  Oh and how can I forget that I drank at least three cups of butterbeer.  No it's not actually beer, it is a drink they have that kinda taste like cream soda ... but since it was in Harry Potter World ... it was ten times better! And ten times more expensive. 
I am leaving Florida tomorrow morning and heading back home.  For our last night we are going out to eat with JT's Granddad (aka papa bear) and then we are going to do some last minute shopping.  Every time I go on a trip I like to bring back something for my parents.  I normally bring back a t-shirt and they sport it around town.  Oh the little things in life!

Hello Sun

     Me and boyfriend are in sunny Florida and I am loving every minute of it!  The sun is shining and I feel like I am in paradise!  We are in Naples for a few days and then we are going to Orlando.  We are going to go to Universal Studios so that I can meet Harry Potter or atleast thats what I keep telling myself.  Yes, I am six years old.  Well not really, but I am ready to go and just let the inner kid in me come out. 
     This has been such an amazing trip so far.  We went to the beach today and saw dolphins and tons of sand dollars.  Of course I walked the beach to find as many sea shells as I possibly could.  For some reason, collecting sea shells is something that I love to do.  I love finding the most beautiful shells that have distinct features to them.  I have even gotten boyfriend hooked on finding them too.  We make a great sea shell finding team.
     Tonight me and boyfriend are going to go get some dinner and then hopefully make it to the beach to watch the sunset.  Romantic I know.  Then maybe I can talk him into going to get some frozen yogurt!  Oh the joys of being on vacation.


     Well, I am now a college grad!  It is official and it is so weird to even think about.  It hasn't really hit me yet.  I don't think it will until next fall when I'm going to my big girl job hopefully  and everyone else is going back to school.  I have a strange feeling in my stomach about this whole situation.  I walked around my beautiful college, High Point University, on Sunday before I left.  I look around at all of the beautiful buildings and fountains and I thought to myself how lucky I had been for the past four years.  I was seeing my school in a whole new light.  It was weird and I'm not sure I liked it.  As I packed my last few boxes with tears streaming down my face, I knew that my life was about to change drastically, but at that very intestine I knew I was ready for it.
     Now it is Wednesday, four days after my graduation, and I am sitting in my new room with boxes that I need to unpack, with memories I need to unpack.  It is a little overwhelming, but I know I am ready.
     I am actually about to pack my suite case up and head to Florida for ten days!  I am ready to soak up the sun and be worry free.  I am flying down with my lovely boyfriend, JT, and we are going to enjoy one of our last vacations before he starts his "big boy job!"  I am just so proud of him, but now I need to find a big girl or maybe I'll just worry about that later.  Now I am off to unpack and pack ... weird combination I know!

Here is a video my nephew made me since he couldn't be at my graduation.  Isn't he adorable?

New Beginnings

     When I was little I always thought about how cool it will be when I am "all grown up."  Now that I am at that stage it isn't so cool.  I graduate from college on Saturday, May 7.  Wait a minute... I GRADUATE Saturday!  I am not sure where college went, but it needs to hurry up and come back.  I am about to start a new chapter of my life and I am not sure I am ready for this.
     Everyone always talks about what they are going to do when they "grow up." Well, I'm there and I still do not know what I am doing.  I am an elementary education major.  So, I know I want to teach, but that's about it.  I have the most amazing boyfriend in the world that is currently on the same journey of unanswered questions.  We are both faced with uncertainty, but thankfully we are doing it together.  My family and friends are amazing beyond words and I do not think I could being doing any of this without them, but even with all of this support I still feel lost.

     Growing up is scary and I am not sure I am prepared for this.  I am sitting in my college apartment with boxes filled of memories that I have had over the last four years.  I am sitting here wondering what is going to happen next, what new beginnings I am about to face?

     I just wish I could go back to being a little kid again playing in my backyard not having a worry in the world.  I remember when I was in middle school and everything was so dramatic.  "So and so said this and she did this and that."  Oh how dramatic I was then... thinking that every little thing was the end of the world.  I had no worries then and now I am faced with huge life decisions.  I just wish someone had of warned me.
    Well, I am about to start a new and exciting extremely scary chapter of my life.  Are you ready to begin this journey with me?
