"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."

-Shel Silverstein



A couple of weekends ago, we made the trip to the Mississippi Delta for one of Kenny's friend's weddings. It was beautiful! The wedding was on a plantation in a town of 1,200 people, the reception was under a tent with the food set up buffet style, and luckily, the rain held off all night. Although I got eaten alive by bugs, it such a fun night.



May included a pretty large milestone in my life. I graduated college! Finally, after 4 years of taking courses at the University of Georgia, I am now able to say that I am a proud alumna. In addition to that milestone, Kenny and I celebrated our one year anniversary. We just went to the Braves game and had a nice relaxing day in Atlanta. The rest of the month was spent searching for a full time job, which proved unsuccessful. It is so hard to find a good full time job that pays enough and has good benefits...I would really hate to have to go full time at Macy's so hopefully something will turn up from my search soon!

One Year




April was a month of finishing up. I completed my internship with Prevent Child Abuse, I complete my course work and just had finals waiting on me, and I got everything finalized for my new apartment. It was busy, as always, but a very rewarding month.

I got a new iPod touch, so of course I'm on Instagram all of the time now!

Dad and Tammy got a new boat. Being out on the lake is so relaxing and an awesome way to spend the weekend!

We went to see Warren Haynes at the Georgia Theater.

And that's about all I can remember about April! Other than rushing to get things turned in and finishing up with classes, not much went on!



Ahhhh there are so many things to catch up on. First off, I deserve the worst blogger award. I haven't been on here for close to two months! I really wish I could get motivated to post more than once in a while (at least once a week), but I always end up forgetting! Maybe during the summer, I'll post more since I won't be in school anymore...

Let's begin the catch up process though:

So I finally caught up on Grey's Anatomy (although I'm back to being behind again...oops...). There are some people that aren't really into it this season, but I still think it's such a good show!

There are so many other shows that I wish I was up to date on...How I Met Your Mother (in the process now), Mad Men (I have all seasons, but I haven't watched any), True Blood (I have the first couple seasons that I haven't watched), Dexter (still on season 3), Glee (yeah yeah I liked the first season!), and I feel that there are many more that I'm not remembering right now.

In other news, The River and The Walking Dead finales came on recently! They were both soooo good. I highly recommend them!

 I finished Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, seriously an amazing book. It didn't make me sad like I thought it would, but it was so interesting to here a story through a child's perspective, especially when you consider the fact that he has Asperger's.  

Now, I'm into the Hunger Games series (who isn't??). I was hesitant about the books because I didn't want them to be another series like Twilight, but I'm a big fan. They are such quick reads and they keep you hanging on until the very last page! I can't wait to get out and see the movie.
There are still so many books that I want to read...One Day, 11/23/63, Never Let Me Go, Valley of the Dolls (again), plus about 20 more books that just sit on my shelf. Seriously, summer is going to be a couple of months of me holed up in my apartment reading and watching TV. Who wants to be tan anyways?

Next Year
Decisions, decisions. Currently the ones that I'm been trying to make deal with where the heck I'm going to live next year as well as what I want to do with my life. I'm still planning on taking a year off between undergrad and grad school, but that doesn't mean I get to postpone applying to grad schools. Along with thinking about where I want to go (maybe South Carolina, or North Carolina??), I have to decide what I'm going to do with my time during that year off. Do I want to just get a job at a daycare, or do I want to get more specialized and try to get in with an organization that participates in parent and community education? Still pondering that one. One thing I hope to say that I have decided by the end of next week is where I'm going to be living. Kenny and I are looking at two places this week and two next week. Hopefully we'll each know which one we will call home next week. I'm pretty pumped!

In other news...
I haven't done anymore paintings lately! I have a canvas just waiting for me to be inspired, but I can't think of anything that I really want to paint. 

Since this is such a long post already, I'll just put up some pictures now...here are some things I've been doing for the past couple of weeks!

Ok, so there hasn't been anything too exciting going on in my life within the past couple of months, but between work, school, and an internships, I don't have that much free time!

Well, hopefully I won't take that long to post again, but if I do, I apologize in advance :)
