Happy Thanksgiving

I was very lucky that I got to go home for Thanksgiving this year. I worked last year. It was a great day of seeing most of my moms family. We went to my grandma and grandpa's house and had all the good food! My dads family doesnt usually get together for Thanksgiving so we had plans to go to dads on Saturday for lunch. I haven't posted what I've been thankful for yet so I'm going to do it now.
I'm thankful for my family and friends.
I'm thankful for my health.
I'm thankful for my job and the friends I've made there.
I'm thankful for my new house.
I'm thankful for my 2nd job.
I'm thankful for hopes and dreams!!
I'm thankful for being able to sleep during the day.
Hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving day. Now we can say Merry Christmas!!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I slept most of the day then got up, got ready and went to get my nails done before I went to work at KB's. We had a pretty good night and I was home at a decent time so I could get up and do it all again tomorrow!!
I worked all day at KB's waiting for my sister to get I to town. Around 2 o'clock she called to tell me where she was and when I thought she would be here. About 25 minutes later she walked in along with one of my BFF's Danielle!!! They surprised me and I was so excited!! They ate and then we went to my new house. Lindsay brought me a rug for my kitchen for a house warming gift! I love it!! We hung out here for a little bit and tried to take a nap but we were a little chatty! Ha! We ended up getting ready and went out to get some dinner. Chad met us at dinner and then we all went out to get a drink. We had such a good time!!
Michelle and Kelsey got here around 8:30 an we were definitely not put of bed yet! Mom and Gerry weren't too far behind. We unloaded both cars and got things put in the "storage" room. Everybody liked the new house. Mom organized some stuff for me and cleaned some stuff. I finally got to put up a regular size Christmas tree again and I was so excited!! Mom and Gerry brought me a new ornament for my Christmas tree!! They all left around 2 so I could sleep before I went to work. A great weekend!!
(I'll eventually have Internet and be able to post pictures and such. Posting from my phone isn't near as easy as the computer but it will have to do for now!)

Can't wait to show you all pictures once I get everything where I want it!! I'm very excited to put up my Christmas tree and decorations!! Don't worry, I'm still getting to read all of your blogs daily!!

1.  Go back five years, would you have pictured your life as it is now or would it have been different? If so, how or why?
Been different....ugh, yeah!  I would be 24 and waitressing full time with a bachelor's degree, partying every weekend I think....geez, 5 years ago was a long time!  HAHA!  At that time I would have definitely thought I would be married with a baby at 29.  Oh, funny how things are so not what you think they will be!  It's amazing the things I've learned!!

2.   In a perfect world with no attachments, my career would be...
I know I'm not in a perfect world but I'm lucky enough to say that I am working in my dream job.  As a little girl when anyone asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up I would say "a nurse and work with babies".....yep, it's what I do!!

3.  Name one thing you do {or don't do} that the world may think strange of you.
When I eat a bowl of cereal I always put a piece of ice in with it, I can't stand the milk getting warm.  I put ice in my glass of milk as well!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I'm really late posting this but all well!  Friday night I met Janelle and Chad for dinner and drinks.  I hadn't seen Janelle in months so it was so great getting to hang out with her and catch up.  Chad was a little late.....just about an hour!  We stayed for a while and when Janelle had to go home, Chad and I went to get some drinks and watch the end of the game.  CARDINALS WIN!!!  We were rather excited!!! 

I worked at the restaurant all day so I figured it would probably be a good idea if I took a nap before going out that night. There were 2 Halloween parties I was going with my friends to.  I had no idea what I was going to dress up as so Niki told me I could just go as a cop like she was, so I went out and bought the costume.  I got up, got ready then headed to Niki & Michael's.  We got ready and headed to the first party where these pictures were taken.....

Me with my fake gun....lame, I know!  HA! 

You can tell by my eyes that I am way tired!
We left this party not to long after and went to the second party.  We got there still dressed up and decided it was time to change into regular clothes!!  It was fun getting to hang out with those friends.  On our way home we stopped by another bar because Chad was there.  Mike and Niki stayed in the car so I just ran in real quick to say hi.  I was happy to come home and go to bed!!!

**Oh, while I was at work Saturday I got a phone call telling me that I get to move!!!  I am going to be renting a house!!!  More info on that when I get it!!

I slept till I couldn't sleep anymore!!  I got up and packed some things that I won't be using anytime soon!!  I'm a little excited about getting out of this "itty bitty living space"!!  What movie is that from??  HA!!!  Took a little nap then headed off to work.....the start of a very busy week, hence being so MIA from the blog!!  Of course, I found plenty of time to read them!!
