Life right now is great. It is so good not to be missing Jason all the time. I love being here when he gets home from work. We cook together, play video games and watch movies. People say you have to adjust to living with someone, and I fully expected that, but so far there hasn't been any adjusting. There might be some that were done without realizing it, but living with Jason feels like this is how life is suppose to be.
So life is pretty sweet so far and I look forward to the times ahead that Jason and I will grow and experience together :)

Sooo my wedding is in 6 days :D
I dont know why, but I thought of this blog today and really wanted to do a post. I am not very organized too keep up with it, but since I am horrible with journals, I really like having this site to put my thoughts up every once in a whie.
So here is a little about what is going on with me :D
My fiance is in the air force and I am moving to Arkansa. I have never left Bama before besides vacation. I know that I will more then likely get home sick eventually (probably sooner then later) but I am so excited!
I am ready to be with my man for the rest of my life. He loves God, his family, animals, makes me laugh, has dark hair and blue eyes, sings to me, takes naps after work just to talk to me when I am driving home late from work, knows when I am having a bad day just by the sound of my voice, can make me smile when all I want to do is cry. He is everything I have been looking for.
Well I have a lot to do today with the wedding this Friday 11-11-11 <3
Hopefully I will be posting more with wedding pictures and post about our home!
Thanks readers for caring :D

Umm well I have been working really hard. It took me a few days to get use to going to bed at 3 in the morning, then sleeping past 8. It always seemed that no matter how late I stayed up I could not sleep past 8. Now I am sleeping till 11 :) at least when no one calls the house early in the morning.
I do a lot of heavy lifting so the first 2 weeks of work I was always sore, I finaly got use to it, but now I seem sore all the time agian. The sad thing is, my job dutties got changed a bit so I am not doing as much heavy lifting as I use to. Last night was crazy and we were short handed by 2 people and then half way through another person left so we were down 3 people.
Hopefully tonight will be better, and at least I have a 4 day weeekend to look forward to :D
Saturday I am going to finish up some wedding stuff. Monday I have two friends coming over for movies, and we are probably going to go bowling with another friend so good times :D
Other then that life is pretty much same old same old. I get pretty frustrated at times, but I try to remember that others have it harder then me. Not to say anyones pain should be belittled just that it can always be worse (hope I didnt jinx myself) the thing is, in the grand scheme of things this world will pass in a blink of an eye.
Oh and one more thing that is very random. I saw a poster the other day that said "What would happen if pinochio said my nose is going to grow?" because really if he said it would and it does he is telling truth, and if he says it will and it doesnt it is a lie.....I personally think his head would explode.

Life is full of big moments becoming a Christian, turning 16 and learning to drive, graduating high school, going to college, getting a job, getting married, moving off, having kids and learning that plans don't always work out as you want them to.
One of the qualifications of a living organism is that it has to adapt. I have a lot of big changes coming up. I am getting married and moving off 6hrs away from the only home I have ever known.
Still I am excited. I am ready to be with the man I love and I am ready to have a new experience. I am ready to start working on turning a house into a home.
During times like that I am thankful that Christ gave me good parents to teach me how a woman should be. Who will still support me even though they don't want me to move off.

So we have the photographer booked, the food planned and we have an idea on decorations and invatations. I believe that is all the major things left.
I know that there is still a lot to do; mailing invatations, setting up decorations, ext. But I have a lot of awesome people to help me.
Mom and Haley have of course been awesome. My church family has been sweet and supportive. Ariel has my back and is going to help keep my mom sane. Jason has not told me yet that I am driving him up the wall with wedding stuff and listens to all I want to share and gives input when asked. The poor thing I email him a huge email of stuff about every 3rd day.
I never really realized that there was so much work involved with weddings (they make it look easy on TV) still all of it is worth it because each job gets me closer to saying "I do." with the man I love.

That is the day I will marry my best friend. Its strange, but I heard a preacher the otehr day speaking on marriage. He said one of the reasons, he thinks marriages fail is that in deciding on marriage people don't think past the wedding. They kind of forget that they will be going home to a new home and living with another person. Ever since I realized I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Jason that was all I could think about. When I would wake up in the morning I would smile and think that one day I would wake up with him beside me. When I get my coffee in the morning I think about how he likes his cup half full so that it can cool off so he can gulp it instead of sip it. When I leave for work I think one day I will be kissing him goodbye as I head out the door and when I drive home I think about the day when I will be coming home to him.

I was thinking about how random my blog was and thinking if I wanted to get rid of it or pick a topic to stick with. Then I thought about how random I really am so that a random ever changing blog is perfect for me.
New stuff with me. I hit a bumb with nursing school. I failed one of my classes after doing everything I could to pass I fell short 4 points :( Instead of feeling deffeated I have decided to take some time off and think about if I really do want to go into nursing. Work to me has always been about helping others. Losing my grandmother was really hard, the hardest part was how we lost her. She battled cancer for three years and basically withered away before our eyes. In my small part of helping take care of her it inforced my belief that there is no other job better then helping others. I always saw myself going into the hospice car. We all come to a point where we are going to die and I think giving comfort to those near death is a hard, but wonderful job to have.
However right now I am taking time off from school. I have been going to school for about 16 years now so the break is good. This is my first summer off since I started college too. So what I have done with it so far is spend time with the friends I can. Most of my friends are away at school or working or something or another so it is important to me to hang out with who I can when I can because you never know where you will be in a few years.
I got a job. I spend the school year days subbing, but I can't sub over the summer. I help with the backroom at walmart. Not my first choice, but surprisingly I have a lot of fun with it. I work with an interesting group of people and that makes it all the better.
I am finding time to take pictures again. I was able to do engagment pictures for a college friend and senior pictures for my cousin. Click the link at the top of my blog to check them out on my facebook page. Congratulations Hannah and Luke I hope you have many happy years together. Haley, I can't believe you're a senior! I know I have said it before, but I will say it again. You will always be that little 6yr old who called me almost every day to go to Granny's to play with you, to me. I love you and I am so proud of the young woman you are becoming.
I cannot believe this year is almost gone. I hope to find more time to blog. I have never been good at diaries or journals so in a way this is like a mini journal to me. Hope you enjoy the reads.

Things I have learned…..
So I will be turning 22 this month and decided to jot down a few things I have learned along the way. (This is in no real order)
- You can rarely make everyone happy so sometimes you should settle with yourself (that one took me a long time to figure out)
- Always be sure to save documents as you work on them
- Friends are there for you when you need them, best friends never leave you
- When washing your hands rinse with your fingers pointing down (who would have thought right? I learned this in nursing school lol)
- Its okay to cry
- Plastic wraps for food is pure evil
- Stray animals make the best pets
- It isn’t really cooking until you make a mess
- and it isn’t really art until you make a mess
- No matter what happens, more then likely the sun will rise again tomorrow (even if you cant see it)
- Popcorn taste great with powder sugar
- The right choice is rarely the fun choice (but still the one you should do)
- Standing alone for something you believe in is still worth standing for
- You don’t always have to give advice or do anything to fix someone’s problems, usually just being there is enough.
- When you think the world is against you, remember God is always with you.
- Worry never fixes anything and pretty much always makes things worse.
- When you drop toast it always lands sticky side down
- Life is short so be sure you are living while you are alive (and never forget to say I love you to those you love)
- Sing like no one is listening
- Always try to think the best of others you don’t know what they are going through and we all have struggles.
- Duct tape can indeed fix pretty much everything.
- Ice cream is a good source of dairy
