What are you?

I took this little quiz from Perri's blog. Daisies are my FAVORITE and I really think it is true what it says.

I am a

What Flower
Are You?

"You are just a sweet person. When a friend needs a shoulder to cry on, you are happy to offer yours with a box of tissues as well. Once in awhile, you wish you could be a little more dramatic but then sensibility sets back in and you know that you are perfect the way you are."

Happy Easter!

I found this and thought it was kinda funny. Enjoy...
The Rules of Chocolate
If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.
Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.
The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car. The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.
Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less.
A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy?
If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?
If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.
Money talks. Chocolate sings.
Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.
Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous? Because no one wants to quit.
Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.
Chocolate is a health food. Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived either from sugar beets or cane, both vegetables. And, of course, the milk/cream is dairy. So eat more chocolate to meet the dietary requirements for daily vegetable and dairy intake.

Happy Birthday Colter!

We celebrated my nephew Colter's 2nd birthday today. It was a Star Wars themed party and the cake was pretty awesome...

He gone LOTS of Star Wars toys and a new Star Wars bed. Here he is opening some presents.

That's my Aunt Jennifer with him. Today was her birthday and as you can see from her cake in the background, she is only 10...lol...

I think this was Colter's favorite present:
his very own light saber. I think he is one happy kid!

Nice Happy Pictures

I had to do an architecture assignment for class and I chose to do interior architecture. I went to Georgie's (Ben's mom) attic. Her house is about 100 years old so I thought I could get some really great artsy fartsy (I don't know how to spell that) pictures there....and I think I did...how bout you?

Like I said.....nice happy pictures.

Short update

This semester is already over halfway over. I really just can't believe that because it feels like I've done nothing in school. I have a feeling it is all going catch up with me in the second half but I'm ready. Bring it on.

Tomorrow is my last day at Subway. Forever. I am really excited but will miss a couple of the people I work with there.

I start working at the bank on Tuesday and to say I'm excited is an understatement. I've been shopping and have all sorts of cute new cloths to wear. Everytime I go inthe bank to deposit money or something they all ask when I start. People I don't even know and have never seen are asking me this. It kinda freaks me out that they already know who I am and I have never even seen them but they are all super nice and I can't wait to work with them.

I have to go to class now and turn in a paper I wrote like 5 minutes ago. I hope I did it right. Wish me luck. Peace.

Big News!

and no it's not that I'm pregnant!...haha.... I got a new job.

Before I left Woodforest, I had put applications in at different banks to try and get on at another one in town. Since that was in January, I figured by now they weren't interested. I was wrong as always.

Last Friday morning the head honcho guy from People's Bank called and wanted me to come in for an interview. I was amazed. This is the same bank I went for an interview last year about this time and they ended up deciding they didn't want to hire anyone.

Well my interview was yesterday morning and they said they would let me know no later than the beginning of next week.

He called this afternoon to offer me a part time teller position.

I am beyond excited because I will be working the hours I want which is right at 32 hours a week, perfect for being able to get homeowrk done too. It also pays pretty good. It is more than I made at Woodforest but less then Subway but I'm OK with that.

Did I mention it is like three buildings down from my apartment so I can walk to work everyday? With gas at $3.18 right now, imagine how much money will be saved by not having to drive to Newburgh everyday!

The bad news is that I have to tell Mary I'm quitting AGAIN. I feel like such a schmuck because she welcomed me back with open arms and a smile and now I am just going to leave again. BUT I did put in this application BEFORE I went back to Subway so it's not like I went behind her back to find another job...right?

Anyway I will tell her in the morning.....Wish me luck!

I'm so excited that I get to dress up for work!...lol...a reason to go shopping!

Sorsha Turns 2

Today was Sorsha's birthday and she had a great time at her Blue's Clues themed party. I know Trin will probably want to post more about the details so I will let her but here is a picture or two of her on her big day.

This one is of her playing with her different Blue's Clues characters before the party which she knew all of their names very well.

This was the present opening and this is her actual surprise face when she saw what it was. She kept saying "open it, open it." So cute.

This is my favorite picture from the day. I love her chocolaty smile. if you click on the picture you can see what I mean. That girl kills me.
Happy Birthday Sorsha! We love you!
Love Uncle Ben and Aunt Jada

I did my friend Whitney's engagement pictures today. We went to the school to use the studio there (I will someday have my own) and it was much fun. I have to say that just being behind the camera and taking pictures is one thing in this world that I feel absolutely comfortable doing and I have so much fun when I do. I can't wait until I get to do this for a living. Anyway, here are a couple pictures of the lovely couple.

I really think they turned out well. What do ya'll think?
