One of my favorite blog friends Kirby at the GoodGalsInc tagged me in this "5 Things You Love About Summer" tag! If you haven't visited Kirby's blog.. then I def recommend you go do so.. NOW! :) She's a great girl!

Here are my top 5 Things....

1) My wedding!

So obviously, I am not going to get married every summer, but this summer I cannot wait to get married! It is less than two months away and smack dab in the middle of summer.. which is a good thing and bad :) We are going to have a blast!

2) Snow Cones!

Ok, So I totally borrowed this from Kirby.. but great minds think alike. I love, love, love snow cones. There are an easy way to cool off and a fun treat for the kids (or just the kids at heart :) There is a snow cone shack in downtown that has totally random hours but I would drive the long way home from school just to see if they were open! lol.

3) Ice Cream!

So obviously there is a trend in calories here.. but ice cream is right up there with snow cones! Who doesn't enjoy a simply ice cream cone on a hot sunny day? Everyone, right!?! What is better is home made ice cream :) my friend Tanya and her mom, Marie used to make homemade vanilla ice cream for us every summer. It was delicious! Now Marie makes it for us everytime we go up there :)

4) Family & Friend BBQ!

So yes.. the calorie trend is still contiuing on my list. No wonder I need to loose some weight :) But really I love family & friend bbq's because I love spending time with them! My parents house has always been the bbq spot.. the kids swim, while the adults watch and talk. When we get our house after the wedding, I cannot wait to host bbq's and fun events :) It'll be a new summer tradition!

5) The Beach!

The beach is just the relaxing place to be. I love water and the ocean, so it only makes sense that the beach would be on my top 5! Even though I hate suiting up in a bathing suit (that'll all change soon!), I would gladly do it if I knew we were going to the beach! :) I love sitting and listening to the ocean, swimming with friends/family, or just having a picnic next to the ocean!

If I were to pick a #6, it would be 4th of july! I love fireworks. I love the 4th. I love camping, cause that's what we are usually doing that week. I love red, white, and blue :) What can I say? I'm a patriot!

The 6 Lovely ladies I tag are:

So I've been taking pics on my phone lately.. cause my camera died and I can't find its charger.. but I have SOOO much to fill you guys in on!!! Remind me :) But for now.. Here's some random items from me to you :)

Oh, and when I get to 50 followers, I think I may do a random prize drawing, how does that sound?

So this is part of our centerpieces, we have ten of these (and the ones below) total. Then on the other 10 or 11 tables, we are going to do flowers and the typical centerpieces, I think? Not too sure yet. But they are totally cute and have scriptures on them. This one is Joshua 24:15.

This is the second one. The scripture is Romans 15:13. I'm excited to get creative with these bad boys. They come on glass mirrors that reflects the light perfectly. How long do those little candles last though?? Any ideas to make them last longer?!

Yes, once again I am starting over on the diet thing. Mainly for my health, but I also want me dress to fit on me better, and for my arms to look great in them! This is a salad, water, strawberries, and NutriSystem pizza. The pizza was actually really good lol. So wish me luck on my new journey again!!! Starting in at my heaviest EVER!

So of course with the new diet, comes new groceries! This is only $50 for all this food :) Fantastic!! I got enough to last me this whole week without anything spoiling, and if worse comes to worse I will go back and pick something else up!

God is amazing. This picture is the sunset from outside my house, on my driveway. It is beautiful. It just reminds me of how amazing He really is. Even though we don't always understand His ways or why he does things the way He does, but I have complete Faith in His ways. Also, a bonus is we baptized 17 people yesterday at our annual church picnic!! YES 17 PEOPLE! He is SO GREAT! This month is going to be a hard month, with Tanya & Erik's anniversary vastly approaching (speaking of which, what're we going to do for it? Hmm. I'll have to ask the rents) and things getting crazy with everything, But I Trust Him completely, which isn't an easy thing to do! :) He's also gonna help me get through this diet crapola too :)

My cousin Tracy! She was in the hospital.. and supposed to be in until she delivered. But now they are going to moniter her at home because her blood sugar level has been okay. I don't think I mentioned this previously, but she has Gestational Diabetes, and has had it for a month or two. So we're all praying for her to last full term with this baby! With her history (preclampsia, high BP, gestational diabetes, etc) she needs all the prayers she can get :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE These flowers. They are simply gorgeous. If I could afford them, they would be my main flower in the wedding. But since I can't they will be in my bouqet and I'm trying to find a fake but good looking flower to go in my hair exactly like this one. Any ideas???

Alright that's all for now folks. I'll check back soon!

Does anyone on here Twitter? So two of my best friends, Rosa and Tanya do it, and my man Matt does it... and they all enjoy it. So I'm just checking to see if any of you fine people do it.
If so, (what's the term?) 'Follow Me?" lol.

What is the point of it? I don't get it yet. Ive just stuck with the old fashioned myspace and facebook accounts. So we'll see how this works..

Any famous celebs your following?

Let me know :) I want in the loop :)

Another Statistic..

I lost my job. Fired. The End! Lol. It's only funny because I hated my boss.. not her as a person but the things I went through with her. It was unbearable. I'll give you the full scoop later, but we'll just say I'm Lawyering up!! But in all of this I can def say I LOVE my supporting family. They were pissed and I had my cousins calling me, friends, family lol. They all wanted to help me :) I'm special :) Lol Plus, I know an amazing Heavenly Father who loves me and I trust that it is all in His hands! :) <3>
