Fabulous Valentine's Challenge: Day 2

Day 2:  Love Telling This Bad Date Story - Worst Date Ever

My worst date ever is not that bad but still a funny story to tell.
I was set up by my friends.  Her husband worked with this guy and thought he would be a good catch.  I saw pictures of him and thought he was good looking and thought I should give it a try.  Well, first of all, he called and talked to me one time and then it was like he fell off the face of the earth.  Months later he finally decided that maybe he would call again.  Several days later, maybe even a week or two, we finally had a date set to go out.  We decided to meet at the restaurant we were going to eat at and then decide if we wanted to do anything after that.  I also very rarely let a guy come pick me up on a first date, have to be ready to make a quick getaway if needed!!  So we meet outside, I was there first, and my first impression was that he was short.  I always ask whoever is setting me up about things like height so I was a little prepared.  Aren't most the tall, dark and handsome guys taken anyway?? 
Ok, back to dinner, we sit, talk, order and talk some more.  I have no clue what we talked about now but I can probably assume we talked about our families and school.  So, the most awkward part of the night was coming up, he asked me a question.  That question was "What's your favorite kind of cheese?"  I about choked on what I was eating!!  Who asks that??  I had no idea what my answer would be, I looked at him, like ARE YOU SERIOUS??  So, I answered it with "colby jack I guess" and I have no idea why that was my answer, I mean, I like it but not sure I would say it's my favorite! 
So, the rest of the night was fine.  We finished dinner and then he asked where I wanted to go.  We went to a little bar up town and watched a basketball game that was on.  I started getting a headache around 10 and had to be at work early the next morning so I decided to call it a night and headed home.
We did not go out on anymore dates and I don't think we even talked much more after that, maybe a time or two.  It wasn't because of the cheese question.

Day 1: Loved this Date/Best Date Ever

I can't pick just one specific date out but I do have a certain type of date that is my favorite.  I loved when my boyfriend at the time would come to college and just hang out with me.  We would go out to eat and then go watch a movie or come back to my dorm room to watch a movie.  It's still my favorite type of date.  I love to just hang out together and talk or watch tv or something.  One of these days I'll get to do it again!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

This being my weekend to work, I slept most of the day.  I watched a little TV then started getting ready.  My friend Janelle had a 31 party for me at work and I was going to come in early to get all of her orders.  I ended up being put on mandatory standby so that meant I wasn't going in to work.  I talked to Janelle and decided to just go to her house to get the orders.  I ended up hanging out with her and her little boy for several hours.  It was so fun!!  We hadn't gotten to do that in forever!!  I ended up going home around midnight and called work to see if I was going to be called in anytime soon.....probably not.  I went home and watched some Gossip Girl and went to sleep!!

Well, my phone never rang so I was able to sleep all night and part of the day.  Work started calling at about 4:45 asking if I wanted standby, I said no and got ready for work.  When I got there they told me that I was only 1 person away from being mandated again!!  I couldn't believe it!!  I ended up being in the nursery all night, which I love!!  The babies were good to me and I enjoyed every minute of it!!

I came home and went right to sleep.  I got up and ran to the grocery store because I was craving spaghetti!!  I came home and made dinner, made sure my 31 order was good to be submitted tomorrow.  Now I'm sitting on the couch with a glass of wine, my computer and some movies!!

Mr. Miles

My friend Lacy and her husband Jason welcomed their second baby into the world yesterday afternoon!!  Miles (they haven't completely decided on a middle name yet) 7lbs 10oz 18.5in long and absolutely adorable!!  They went to the hospital around 4 and he was born at 5:58pm!  I was really hoping that I could work my shift at the restaurant from 5-8pm and get there before he was born, didn't exactly work out that way.  I should have known, she had her first baby within 3 hours of getting to the hospital!!  Well, enough talk, here's the pictures!!

He came so quick he was in a little bit of shock so he was on a table being watched closely for a while. 
Lots of dark hair! 
He loved the paci!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I had all intentions to get my booty to the gym today but just didn't make it.  I worked at the restaurant from 4 to 8:30.  I was taking one of the girls that I work with home and she needed to stop by the store on her way home.  We were cracking up walking down the aisles and finding the most ridiculous things!!  After I dropped her off at home I met my friend Abby at a local bar.  We sat at a table by ourselves and talked and then she sang several songs (it was karaoke night) and she was AMAZING!!!!  I knew she could sing but had never actually heard her, her voice was out of this world!!  She would blow the Idol judges away!!  She would rather write than sing she says!  We had a blast and called it a night several hours later.

I also worked at the restaurant today.  I got there at 6 and left around 1:30.  I ran to the mall because I was looking for some new black shoes to wear out tonight.  I of course didn't find any because I was actually looking for them, hopefully some other day.  I came home and napped for a couple of hours since I didn't get but a couple hours last night.  I got up and got ready to meet some friends at a restaurant to eat for one of the girls' birthdays.  Anybody remember this party from last year??  Yep, same birthday girl just clothing from this day and age!!  I wanted to stay at the restaurant for a little while longer because I wanted to watch the Murray State game but we left to go to a bar.  They had a dj and we were pretty much the only ones there, it was a lot of fun!!
Rachel and Troy, Kristen and Nick & Alice 
and again with Michael 
Poor Nick had a few to many drinks 
Niki & I

Chad met us at the bar.  Me, Chad, Mike & Niki all sat at one table and hung out there.  We had fun and danced a little bit. We hung out a little longer then decided to head out.

I tried to sleep all day but wasn't really able to.  I got ready for work and when I got there we only had 2 patients so I ended up getting to go home around 9:30.  I was glad because I knew I was going to be really tired. 

What a fabulous weekend!!

OH OH OH!!!  I have to add this!!  One of my best friends, Danielle, the one who got engaged last weekend, called me while I was at work.  I called her back when I was on my way home and she wanted to tell me that they had set a date for their wedding.  It's October 13, 2012!!  I was all excited and talking her ear off about all the stuff she already had planned that she was barely getting a word in!  She was finally able to ask me to be one of her bridesmaids!!  I was so excited I started crying!!  This girl is one of the best friends a girl could ask for and I knew she had to make a big decision on who she was gonna ask to be her bridesmaids so I am so honored!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I slept all day today because getting up early the past 2 days was hard on this night shift girl!  I also had to work tonight so I needed to sleep anyway!! 

Today was a big day!!!  One of my best friends, Danielle, got engaged!!!  She is one of my 6 best friends from college.  Her boyfriend, Jeremiah, sent all of us a text message early last week telling us he was having a surprise party for Danielle on this Saturday and wanted to know if we would all be able to come.  He was going to propose before and then get Danielle to this party, her surprise engagement party!!  One of our friends, Lacy, wasn't able to come because she is about 38 weeks pregnant and lives 2 hours away.  Another friend had to miss it too.  There were lots of people there, it was definitely a packed house!!!  Jeremiah was texting with Danielle's sister to let us know when they would be getting there.

They finally got there and this was her face as she finally realized what was going on!

So excited for them!!! 
Now I'm the last single one in the group.... 
Becca & I

Lindsay & I were surprised how late we slept in today, it was great!!!  Mom made dinner for all of us and it was so good!!!  Not anywhere close to being something I should be eating on my "diet" but all well, I'll get back to it tomorrow.  After we ate dinner we were talking about old school pictures and stuff so Mom went upstairs and got all kinds of old pictures.  We sat at the table and looked at pictures from 30+ years ago up till now, it was so fun!!  Next time, we plan on doing old home videos!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

Today was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and it made me feel like it was already spring!!  I ran a bunch of errands and washed and vacuumed out my car.  It needed it so bad!!  I ran by the restaurant to pick up my paycheck and talk to the girls.  I spent my night cleaning my house and pinning on Pinterest.  I've found so many recipes to try and I just need to do it!  I've also been looking at furniture....looking online is not fun!  I need to actually go to the stores and look.  Maybe another weekend!
So I went to bed last night around 11 because I was working at the restaurant at 7 this morning.  Well, that did not happen.  I went to bed but could NOT fall asleep!!  My body is used to being up all night and sleeping most of the day, so those nights when I have to go to bed early and get up early it just doesn't happen.  I worked all day then got my nails done and went in to Dillard's.  They had a few really good deals!!  I finally found a sound machine (not at Dillard's) and I'm so excited to use it tonight.  I'm hoping it will help me at night with the silence and during the day when I try to sleep and the dogs barking.  I came home and fell asleep on the couch till about 9...probably not a good idea but I have to work tomorrow night so sleeping all day would be ok!
I slept almost all day!!  I kinda figured that would happen.  I really needed to get up and go to the gym, I just didn't do it.  I was trying to plan my week out and schedule time to go to the gym....I just have to go now.  I worked tonight for a little bit then got sent home on mandatory standby for a few hours. 
It's really sad when  my weekend wrap-ups are so boring.
Hopefully next weekend will be a little more eventful!!

My 2012....intentions?

I was trying to find a more suitable word for me to use rather than resolutions thinking maybe if I used a different word I would actually stick to it!  I looked it up and got these words--intentions, commitment, obligations....nothing else I would actually ever use!  So, intentions it is!!

1.  I intend to lose weight with my sisters before leaving for vacation.  We have a nice little competition planned!

2.  I intend to cook more at home instead of eating out or eating cereal for meals.

3.  I intend to get back in to the gym on a regular schedule but I'm really not looking forward to how crowded it's going to be in the beginning of the year.

4.  I intend to clean my house more often (I'm not a very good housekeeper...sorry mom)

5.  I intend to pay off more debt and build my savings account.

(5's enough, right??)

How many of your resol....intentions are on my list??
