I'm going MCK Cruising!










Thats right y'all! I'm going on a cruise with MCKMama & I'm thrilled,excited, flabgastered! WOW this is UNBELIEVABLE!!! I can't give details (I'm sworn to keep it a secret until the list has been made) but I'm about to explode with JOY!!


I'm trying to find a good group of girls to cruise the Caribbean with me! It's a 7 night cruise leaving the from Lone Star State. If anyone is interested on cruising let me know because the $250 REFUNDABLE deposit is due August 9, 2009.

I'm starting to save up for this cruise because it's a once in a lifetime cruise that I will NEVER forget! I'm excited to meet the MckFamily who I prayed over while Stellan was in the womb. Read about it here!

The Break Up







A few months ago I knew AJ wasn't the one for me. Maybe because within 2 months of dating we had a huge argument and the argument continued for oh I'll say the rest of our relationship. Yes some days we're wonderful, others were horrible. I "acted" like I was happy and that he was the one I was to marry. We treated each other so bad. I think we both treated each other without respect because I was constantly questioned why I wore a tank top, specifically what I did, who I talked to, if a guy looked at me, where I was, etc. You get the point right? So while he did was asking me all these questions I did the same back to him, Distance took it's toll and I told him back in October I couldn't deal with it anymore. I was too stressed out to hav a relationship so many miles away. When we were together things were great. We loved each others company. But everything was ALWAYS his way or no way at all. He convinced me to try to have a relationship with him again sometime in November.

For my birthday/Christmas he got us this devotional book about Respect & Love. (sorry I don't remember the title) We read a few chapters but then I stopped reading it because things were going back to how they were. I couldn't deal with why he was questioning why I went to church. For one things don't question me about that. You have crossed the line buddy! That was actually said before the devotional book came into play but thats just a few things he questioned me on. So when I stopped reading he says things got worse and it was all my fault. So just a few weeks ago I ended it for good.

Since not being together of course he wanted me to start and finish the book again. He also wanted me to let him know in a week if I had a change of heart but I haven't. And honestly, I haven't missed him either. Is that bad for being with him for almost 2 years?

I've moved on with my life and have since met someone else. We're just friends so don't freak out on me. I also have started a Bible study with a few girls on Monday nights. I'm reading Esther by Beth Moore. It's my first Bible study and I'm enjoying it so much. I've grown a lot closer to Christ and it's be noticed! I was so excited to hear my brother Josh ask me what was different about me! I hugged him and said I have Jesus with me! Let me tell you how big our smiles were on our faces.

It's so wonderful and amazing to see how God is working in my life. And I pray everyday that God will put my prince charming in my life. But I'm in no hurry to get married, although all the people I've been around are married with kids.

I'm such a happy young lady now and I can't wait to see what God has for my future!

NOT ME MONDAY!










Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It wasn't me who didn't blog again all week. And if you would have come over to visit my blog you would have seen that I posted my Not Me Monday right on schedule. But why is it that I have not blogged? Well I'm not exactly sure. Maybe this week I will be able to catch you all up on my life. Nope Not Me!

I didn't make my cousin a webkinz cake that did not turn out as I planned. I had a terrible migraine and could not concentrate on doing the best I could on Harley's cake. She was not at all excited about how the cake turned out, and my sweet cousin did not have the biggest grin on her face and thanked me 100 times! Nope Not Me!

About those said migraines, I need to figure out what triggers them. This past week I had 2 bad ones but not as bad as they would normally be. Thank goodness I was able to go about my days without my knocked out cold in my bed. My Aunt Rita said for my to try acupuncture. Remember this post? What do do think? I still have not had my spa day but now that I'm thinking of acupuncture I need a little bit of encouragement! Nope Not Me!

I also did not have a photo shoot with Haley at Chic-Fil-A on Saturday. I'm not in love with my new Canon Rebel and the pictures did not turn out cute at all. Here's a preview of a few of my favorites!














What have you not been up to?

Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I did not buy a Canon Rebel! I'm not excited about it shipping to my house tomorrow and I'm not excited that I just spent $487 on it! Yes I know it's a steal! I got it on Amazon.com and I also used some of the gift cards I won using swagbucks as my search engine!

I am not starting a Bible study with my friend Tabitha tonight either. Its not the Bible study that everyone has been talking about. Beth Moore is not such an inspiring person to me at this time in my life. I can't wait to start reading Esther!

I also did not get so excited when my Uncle Chris loved the cupcakes I made for his wedding. Don't worry I'll get a pictures posted very soon. It's been a very stressful, exhuasting week for me!

I did not say that I would not bake/decorate another cake for months just because it does not stress me out. My cousin is having a birthday party this Saturday and I wasn't asked to make her a Webkinz cake. Aghhh.....

Go on over to MckMama's blog to read more of what did not happen this past week!

Not Me! Monday



Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It was not me who didn't blog all week long because so many things have not happened in the past week. Seriously y'all I've been so exhausted and way too busy for the blog world. Nope, Not Me!

Not too much has actually gone on in my little life to actually admit that I did not do something. Nope, Not Me!

I have not stayed out way too late with friends so it wasn't me who fell asleep at work a few days. I do not have amazing friends in my life to help me grow closer to God. And it wasn't me who went to church Sunday morning either. I have not struggled with so much that just being in God's house almost brought me to tears. Nope, Not Me!

I did not see "Taken" on Saturday and love the movie. I told myself I wouldn't see it because one of my fears is someone being under my bed. Nope, Not Me!

Haley did not get so excited seeing me at the Pastor's Conference this week. She did not want to keep going up & down the escalator while the pastor's were preaching. My BIL did not tell Haley that they want a brother for her and she did not respond with,"I want a sister"! Nope, Not My Niece!

If you want to read more Not Me Mondays head on over to MckMama's blog.

Y'all have a great Monday.

Not Me Monday!








It's that time again to be brutally honest with everyone around me with what I did not do this week. It has been a very embarrassing week and I can not believe I'm actually going to admit what I did not do. And if you saw that this really happened just know that it really wasn't me who you spotted.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




A customer did not come into my office to pay her bill and say it was the first time she actually dropped off a payment. I did not tell the lady that I love the company and she should come in more often. Her reply was not, " the traffic is monotonous out there" to my reply of looking at her and saying "I'm not that smart can you explain yourself". I did not just say that to a customer. Nope! Not me!


I did not have to ask someone how to spell that word and it wasn't me who used dictionary.com to find the meaning. If there was a screen up on my computer at work it wasn't me who was trying to see what was so special about that word. Nope! Not me!




My manager did not find the smallest box turtle in her backyard and bring it into work on Wednesday. She also did not ask me what kinds of food the turtle likes to eat. I did not google "box turtle feeding" at work and find out that in fact the baby turtle likes eggs. Well what kind of eggs you ask? Only the best! I told her we should scramble some eggs for the turtle.. She did not crack up at me and say,"well how in the heck would the turtle's mom scramble eggs?" My reply, " Oh right good point!" Nope! not me!




I certainly would never dream about visiting MckMama! Actually 2 nights in a row I did not dream that I was babysitting her MSC before anyone actually knew she was going on a cruise to Paradise with PC and Stellan. Nope! Not me!




I did not win hair bows on Shelley's blog! I never win anything how could this possibly be? Did I really see my name? Was she really making these cute hair bows for her Sweet Claire who is waiting to come home from Korea? Nope! Not me!




And I definitely would NEVER volunteer to babysit 3 boys under the age of 5! Who in their sane mind who want to do that? Not me! I did not have the best time playing with these boys. And I would never let the youngest (8 month old) fall asleep on my chest. Nope! Not me!

My Uncle Chris has decided to get married on Valentine's Day and he would never ask me to make 60 cupcakes for his wedding. I mean why would someone give me a 2 weeks notice that he needs these cupcakes. I am not stressing because I know I'll be able to get them all made between work, social life, and home life. AGHH... Nope! Not Me!

What about you? What have you not did this past week?
