Day 486

Today has been really weird, and not in a great way.  I suppose I should expect that considering Friday and Saturday were purely fabulous.  Tomorrow (and the week ahead) will be great!  Looking forward to Saturday niiiiiight! :)

Day 485

I had an aweeeesome day, and I can't tell you how happy I am to say that.  Life hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows lately, so I'm so thankful that I'm able to sincerely say that tonight.  Cierra & Joe got married today and it was beautiful!  I normally don't cry at weddings, but these last two where I've been Maid of Honor have really gotten to me.  Back to today though, I love that we were all able to go to Scotty's Brewhouse after the reception to just hang out and chat.  (We went to Cooper's Hawk for the rehearsal dinner - wow, always impressive!)  I think Bridget and I might have made some new (really quality) friends this weekend! Yay!

Day 484

My speech just needs some polishing (along with my fingernails), and I need to pack up my stuff.  Otherwise, I'm ready for C&J's wedding rehearsal and actual wedding tomorrow! :)

That is a Triple Chocolate Cupcake.  I made them 2 or 3 years ago for Cierra's birthday!

Day 483

Finally, I had a productive day!  I think it just took some organization and me getting myself out of the house to get me out of the funk I was sliding into.  I had some super tasty Qdoba (since I was super hungry), and ran all of my Greenwood errands, woo hoo!  I continued on into the night with a girls' night (+Joe) at Brook's which consisted of burgers, chips, and ice cream, along with pom margaritas and a few rounds of Apples to Apples.  Let's hope I can continue the trend into tomorrow before I leave for the wedding rehearsal and sleepover!

Cierra & Joe are getting married in less than 48 hours!  YAY!!! :D

Day 482

What is my deal today?!  I feel like such an irritated grump, and I don't like it at all.  I went to an AH-MAZING concert with two great ladies last night.  I am enjoying the weather.  I'm fine.  Maybe it's the fact that I'm still on the hunt for a j-o-b.  I just got an email from one place saying "no" - and that was the one I was sort of counting on.  Dang iiiiiiiiit!   Back to monster/career builder/other job websites I go!

...bah humbug...

Day 481

Going to the New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys concert tonight, YAAAAAY!!!!  I can't freakin' wait!  RaeAnn and I are going to Kilroy's first, so that'll make tonight even more fun.  WOO HOO!

Day 480

I've got plans tonight ... that's new!

Check out Threadcakes - they're cakes made to replicate Threadless shirts!

Day 479

Yesterday, I kind of lived at Panera.  Cierra and Joe now have music for their wedding playlists, and Stephanie and I booked another wedding!

Saturday, July 23, 2011

Day 478

I heard this song in the car (satellite radio) and love it!  Hope you enjoy it as well. :)
Does anyone else think he sounds like the lead singer of Cute Is What We Aim For?

Day 477

Of course we chose one of the hottest days of the year to parade around Broad Ripple!  It was time for Cierra's bachelorette party tonight, so it was all worth it!  We had a good time at dinner and then bar hopped the rest of the night.  Some guy named Joe (and his fellas) met up with us at The Red Room, so that was a fun end to the evening. :)

Day 476

Flew home from MYR today, and had the best airport experience to date.  No lines ... at all!  Nice security people and on time flights.   I even made a friend on my flight from MYR to CLT! :)

Day 475

I spent the whole day at the beach!  It was marvelous!  Even with SPF 50 on, my pale Irish skin still got some color.  I was jumping the waves with the boys and Emily ... we all had a great day! :D

Day 474

"The Proposal" never gets old.  I love that movie!

Monday, July 18, 2011

Day 473

Toured the *gorgeous* Biltmore Estate, gardens, winery, etc. today!  Bought a nice bottle of wine, too. :)

Sunday, July 17, 2011

Day 472

Road trip to North Carolina today!

Day 471

Truth.

Happy to have shot a wedding with Steph today!  The first one for 2011!

Friday, July 15, 2011

Day 470

Today, I'm thankful for Dave's Youtube page.  Laughs on demand when I'm missing my friends.  Awesome!


Last day of vacation bible school tonight and I'm gearing up for tomorrow's wedding!

Day 469

Today, I'm thankful for rest.  So many people are working 2 and 3 jobs just to pay the bills.  I'm thankful that I can almost always get a good night's rest. 


It's a crazy world out there, and I hate that my little social butterfly personality clams up and hides whenever asked out on a date.  This. Is. Ridiculous!  Why am I not fearless when it comes to this?  What am I so afraid of?!  Argh...

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Day 468

Today, I'm thankful for time with my grandpa.  Sometimes I forget that not everyone has the luxury of Saturday breakfasts and seeing your grandpa as often as you see your parents. 


Getting silent auction donation request letters signed, sealed, and (ready to be) delivered for our church festival in August.  We need donations!

Day 467

Today, I'm thankful for childlike enthusiasm.  Vacation Bible School is this week, and the kids are just so cute, so excited, and are having so much fun!  


I think I could be a travel coordinator for people.  I've been searching for flights for two different trips, and I think I know all the ins and outs there are to know.

Day 466

Today, I'm thankful for chocolate milk.  It's pretty tasty. 


I drove all over the southeast side today with a bride, her mom, and little brother.  We were scouting out a good place for her post-wedding photos.  We visited 2 farms, 2 schools, and saw most of Beech Grove.  We found a great place (U of I) and I think it's safe to say we all feel better about Saturday's wedding.  Hooray!

Day 465

Today, I'm thankful for my social skills.  Sometimes I realize that not everyone either likes or desires to be a hostess (with the mostess).  I love having people over, and I consider it a blessing that I can do it (and that people show up). 

Last night's first outdoor movie night was a success.  I hope to do it at least a few more times over the course of summer and fall.  If you ever want to come over, let me know!  Way better than the drive in!

Saturday, July 9, 2011

Day 464

Today, I'm thankful for helpful family members that made an outdoor movie screen for me. :)  Should be fun watching a movie or two around the fire pit and making s'mores with friends!


Getting the house in tip top shape for my little shindig tonight. :)

Friday, July 8, 2011

Day 463

Today, I'm thankful for options.  Career options, boyfriend/husband options, house options, food options, things-to-do options.  I have freedom, and I'm happy that I don't live in a society that gives me many restrictions (like arranged marriage or "you're a woman so you have to stay home and rear the children").   If I chose to do either of those things, it would be just that ... a choice.  

To all of the mommas and the poppas out there, you rock.  I have no idea how you raise your child/children and still function like a normal person.  I feel like I'd either be worried out of my mind that I was screwing something up or completely exhausted from lack of sleep (and worrying!).

Thursday, July 7, 2011

Day 462

Today, I'm thankful for 26 years of health, happiness, great friends, and a loving family!

Going Downtown for dinner tonight, woo hoo!

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

Day 461

Today, I'm thankful to finally get to see my best friend!  She's been home since Saturday at 12:30 AM and today is Wednesday.  Ok, I've been gone, but still!  Thankful for some overdue hang time with her. :) 


You know what never seems to get old?  I'll tell you: Steak 'N Shake.  Maybe it's because I'm a diner lover.  Yeah, that's right, I said it.  I'm a lover of diners.  Milkshakes, burgers, fries, and stainless steel.

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

Day 460

Today, I'm thankful for a safe and a fast trip home (since there were 3 girls chatting in the car).  


I have an interview on Friday, woo hoo!  Hopefully it'll be a good fit and will have what I'm looking for. :)

Monday, July 4, 2011

Day 459

Today, I'm thankful for my freedom and all of the present and past troops that have served our country.  My bubba is one of them and I can't wait until he's home in a few months!

Fire pit + friends playing 'Ello Gov'na + 3 s'mores = one fun night.

Sunday, July 3, 2011

Day 458

Today, I'm thankful for the food that nourishes us all.  I got to make dinner for my friends and they liked it!  They really liked it! ;)   


Participated in my first power hour.  Disney version.  Win!

Saturday, July 2, 2011

Day 457

Today, I'm thankful for a little vacation and the opportunity to spend a few days with a great group of friends.  

Staying at Blue Door Cottages with friends for 4th of July weekend! :)

Friday, July 1, 2011

Day 456

Today, I'm thankful for my large music library.  Music makes everything better and helps you to sometimes realize you're not the only one who has ever felt a certain way. 


My little spray tanned self has an odd list of to do items today including a trip to Lilly, packing for vacation, and editing wedding photos.  Maybe that's not weird; I don't know.
