Weekend Recap

Weekend Recap

This weekend was an overall great weekend!
Friday- I had to work till 5:30. After work I went home and hung out
with my parents! I love nights like that! They are fun! We eat dinner, watch TV
and hang out!
Saturday – I woke up Justin bright and early at 10, Yes that’s early
for him on his days off! I made him go to Landmark Kitchen and Bath Shoppe to
figure out what we want to do in our new house! This took awhile! I can’t imagine how long it is going to take when we pick out stuff for our bathroom! 

This is going to be for the kitchen. That’s the cabinet, counter top 
and the back splash.. During this picture we were still deciding on those two.
But the next picture shows the one we picked! 

After that I got ready for the bowling benefit for my cousin Jordan
(I wrote about him on Friday)
We stopped by my grandparents’ house and did some bowling in their

Then off to bowling with the family!

My wonderful mother and I

Sunday- I worked all day till 6:30 came home worked on homework made
dinner for tonight, and then made dinner for tomorrow that we put in the crock pot so Justin can just turn it on after he gets home from work!
Rest of the Sunday night.. Worked on homework and relaxed! Getting
ready for the bust week ahead of me! 

Overall I had a wonderful weekend! Got to spend time with family and my man! 

How do you like the colors we picked out for the kitchen! 
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 

-Also, there will be a blog hop posted Wednesday! Make sure to stop by!

5 Years Ago

5 Years ago I lost my cousin to a drunk driver.. 
It was a morning I will never forget.. 
I woke up early to go to a volleyball tournament.. I was a Freshman in High School at the time. 
The phone rang, (my mom was out of town and I thought it was her) so my dad answered it but it was not my mom, it was my uncle telling us news that would change our life forever. 
While I continue to pack my bags, my dad stood in the doorway and said words I will never forget.. “Jordan was in an accident this morning and was killed” Time stopped, the entire world stopped. I just stood there and thought that this could not be true! It just wasn’t!
My dad came in a gave me a hug and I just cried in his arms.. That was the only emotion I had. 
After a while my dad woke up both my sister’s. 
We got things packed up and we headed to see the family.. 
While all this is going on my mom was out of town and didn’t hear or know anything. 
We we get to my cousin’s house.. there was a sad feeling, and that’s the only way I can explain it. He left his mother and father and two younger siblings. 
He was a mile from home when a drunk driver ran a stop sign and hit the car Jordan was driving.
There were 4 boys in the car, and they all died on impact.

Life can change so fast, one day it is normal and the next day your world is turned up side down..

Months after Jordan’s death, we had to go to court hearings for the man who ran the stop sign.. he was drunk and high.. It was so hard to look at that man who killed my cousin.

Today is a sad day for my family.. we lost someone 5 years ago very special to us. He will always be in our hearts.
He was only 20 years of age when he was taken from this world, and that is too young. Parents should not have to see their children’s funerals, it’s just not right.

We love you and miss your Jordan.

Oh Friday.. I needed you.

 Linking up with Hayley For Let’s Be Friends GFC Blog Hop 

This week was just one of those weeks! 
I have been working six days a week going to school for 13 hours on Tuesday’s, and 8 hours on Thursday. 

I had three test today.. and I’ll put it this way.. They kicked my butt! 

I’m just so ready for summer, I can’t even study! 

I called off work today, No I wasn’t sick.. I just didn’t want to go to work.. Yes that sounds childish.. But I don’t care.. I needed a day off work so bad! 

So my wonderful boyfriend took me to Ikea. 
We got some new things for the house! 
(Oh this new house can not come soon enough! I am so sick of living in this apartment.. it is to tiny and everything is wrong with it. 

I love everything to be neat a clean but with this apartment.. it can’t stay that way because there is no room for everything! and IT DRIVES ME CRAZY! ) & roommates.. Well I should not start my rant about them.. It will never end.. I clean for my man so he does not have too and I don’t mind that but I do not like cleaning for my roommates! I can’t wait to have my own master bathroom!! 
(okay I am done with my roommate rant) 

And I had a gift card so I only spent $1.80 I got two end tables for our bedroom, and vases and candles to put in the vases and little turquoise rocks.. Our room will be brown tan and a splash of turquoise. 
I can’t wait! 

I am trying to really work on blogging.. But I feel like I have no time! 
Sorry if this post are boring and you think they are pointless.. 
When summer comes.. They will be better! That’s a promise!

Different Hair All The Time

No, I don’t like taking pictures of myself, so there will hardly be pictures of just me, but here are some of my hair styles

Before I went really blond (yes, I have black in there)

Right before I went brown! 

End of my senior year of high school! All natural curls! 
Most recent. Dark brown!

The Diamond

So everyone dreams of their wedding ring, and getting a big rock on your hand, right? 

Well lately, I have been giving out hints, wait who am I kidding, I have been sending pictures to Justin about what I want!

I’ve been thinking, and thanks to pintrest I decided what I want! 

I want a 

promise ring
engagement ring
wedding band 

Thanks Pintrest

This would be my promise ring. 
It’s not that we are not ready to get engaged because we are. But we just bought a house, he works about 60 hours a week, and I am still in school. So this would be a good way to start, and not as expensive as an engagement ring! 

And when I got married, I would have a finished ring! 

This is the type of ring I want.. A girl can dream right? 

I love this idea now, but I could always change my mind! 

What do you all think about it? 

Do you dream about the rings you will wear for the rest of your life?

My Perfect Man

Well, the first thing I want all my readers to know is that I have a wonderful boyfriend!
His Name is Justin
We have been dating since December 2011
He’s a police officer for Perry Township, and is working as I wright this. It is actually snowing, so who knows if he will get off on time. I worry in times like this, when everyone is supposed to be off the roads, he has to be on the road! 
(prayers for all the police officers who risk their life every day to protect us)

He is always there for me, and knows exactly what to say to make me happy. 

His sister and brother-in-law lives in Tennessee, and his mom lives in Cincinnati.  

We have gone many vacations together, Last summer was the best and we went to Daytona Florida.

I first met him at work… they always say you meet the man when you least expect it.. well that is true for me! 

From the first time I met him, I knew I would date him. He was tall, blonde hair, blue eye, and SHY! For the couple weeks that we knew each other, we hardly talked! But I had my eye on him the whole time! 

Once we started to talk, things took off fast, and within a month we were dating!

Ever since then, I knew he was the man for me! I have never doubted that he’s mine forever! 

And the good thing is, we just got a house together! 
Yes, we might be doing things a little backwards, but interest rates are so low, and we found the perfect house, and my parents offered to help us out! So we could not say no! 

The exciting news… we started looking at rings!
All the ring details will have to be for another day.. but let’s just say I want things a little different!

That is just a little about my wonderful man!

Hope everyone is enjoying their week!

Can’t wait for my man to get home, so we can cuddle while the snow falls!
