     In about one hour it will be Father's Day!  One of the best days of the year I might add.  My dad is amazing to say the least and I thought he deserved a little shout out!  I remember back when I was a little girl and I would curl up beside my dad and watch Bugs Bunny and we would laugh and laugh.  When I got a little older I started doing competitive cheerleading.  Almost every weekend I would have a competition ... and guess who made it to every competition ... my dad.  Now I am sure he did not want to sit through hours and hours of nonstop "COME NOW YELL WITH US!"  but being the amazing dad he is ... he sat through them with a smile on his face.  As soon as I walked out on that stage I would always see my parents smiling up at me acting like I was the only one on stage!  My parents always knew how to make me feel so special and I always felt like a little SUPER STAR!  I have always been daddy's little girl... his little angle.  Ever since I was little my dad has always calls me his "boo" and that is something that I will always hold dear to my heart.  So this is for you dad.  I love you.  You are my hero and I couldn't be where I am today without you.  You have always been my biggest supporter and biggest fan.  I love you more than words can express.  Here's to you daddy!

I know he is adorable!

     Redbox is the best invention ever created.  Boyfriend and I are cheap when it comes to date night.  So when we discovered redbox we were set.  So first rule of date night is that we have to get at least one redbox movie and most likely it is a comedy.  The second rule of date night is that we have to go to the grocery store and get lots of snacks and desserts and just a bunch of yumminess!  Third rule of date night is that you HAVE to wear comfy clothes.  Cute clothes are not allowed.  Fourth rule is to have a bunch of pillows and a big fluffy blanket.  Once everything is set and ready we snuggle up and have our date night!  oh how romantic.

Job security?

     Growing up I always dreamed of what it would be like to be a "grown up" and what it would be like to be done with school.  Well I'm at that point in my life and the dream isn't exactly what I thought it was going to be.  So far jobs are rare and hard to find.  Im in the education field so it's a waiting game to see which schools will even have openings for the fall.  I went into a profession that always needed teachers and I thought great ... "job security!"  Well what happened to that?  Instead principals are telling me that they are cutting jobs not making new ones.  Oh joy.
     On a positive note boyfriend is doing a little better on the job search.  He has been interning at the same job for over two years now.  He works with the stock market ... which in my opinion is extremely boring ... but he loves it.  Everyday after work I always ask him how work was.  He goes on a spill about the stocks and being the loving girlfriend I am ... I try and act excited about it... but in reality I have absolutely no idea what in the world he is talking about.  So anyways, boyfriend officially got offered the job TODAY!  This is huge and I am so proud of that boy!  So this is to you boyfriend.  You little smarty pants.  I love you and I am so proud of you.
              ... now lets just find me a job okay?

Look at boyfriend all dressed up ... what a babe!

Drivin the mini van

     Well it is that time of the year again.  Family vacation time that is.  Every year my family gets together and goes on a vacation to the beach.  My mom, dad, sister, boyfriend, brother-in-law and three nephews are all here.  We got a nice big house right near the ocean and we are having a blast.  Good ol' family time.  My nephews are absolutely adorable.  Ethan is two and he is a handful.  Earlier today we were on the beach running, building sand castles and of course playing with Thomas the Train.  Whoever invented Thomas the Train I envy you.  That boy has every train you could possibly think of at $15 dollars a pop.  Then there is the twin boys, Eli and Noah.  They are eight months old.  Noah absolutely loves the beach, while Eli acts like someone is hurting him if his feet touch the sand.

     As much as me and boyfriend love the fam we decided that we needed a night out just the two of us, but the only problem was that we didn't drive down here.  We wanted to save money so we rode with my parents.  I was telling my parents about our little situation of not having a car and so my dad says (in a chipper voice I might add), "Take the mini van!"  Now don't get me wrong ... mini vans are cute and very practical for families... BUT not so cute when your in your early twenties with no cute little kiddies running around.  Needing a night out alone we decided that we would rock that mini van and we would do it with style!  So boyfriend and I hopped into the mini van and went cruising down the street with the windows rolled down.  We looked extremely cool and we were loving it.

Doesn't he look cool?  He should def get a mini van right?

On our date night

What a babe!

Are you in love or what?
