act of "rebellion"

This week has been so much fun!
Some of my family from NC came down for a while and we've just been making the most of every opportunity by hanging out with one another.
Last night we had a late night swim party and today......drum-roll please.......
we got piercings!


I went and got a double. There's some definate *bling bling* goin on....
it's like a party on your ears!

Why is it that we always get perspective when life gets real crummy? That's why I can never regret when bad things happen to me. It's like I get too caught up in my "happy-go-lucky" world where "everyone smiles" and "magic falls from the sky".


But as soon as something unplanned or serious happens, reality hits me like a ton of bricks. I once again start to prioritize my life and get back to the things that truly matter. Just thought I'd share my food-for-thought with the wonderful world of blogging!

On a lighter note....I got a new job! I am officially done with food/retail for the rest of my life (Lord willing). My new position is part of the executive assistant role to the worship pastor at my church. While my mother takes on all of the administrative and choral duties, I will carry out the entire media portion, with the help of the ITT Tech guys that volunteer for us :) I couldn't deal with the sound board without their help!

Let's hope and pray that I can do it as well as the job itself demands!

I have officially quit my job! YAY! It was definitely time to do that. I have a job that will take a few hours a week as of right now, but until I can find another part time job for the school year I'm stuck doing odd jobs. I'm not complaining though, trust me. Odd jobs are surprisingly more appealing than my last job.

For those of you that follow my blog and actually know who I am, if you know of anyone that needs a babysitter or if you know of a job that I might be interested in (here's a hint - no food and no retail. I prefer an office setting) just let me know! The reason I say no food or retail is because I've had experience in both areas, and they're just not me.

God will provide, I'm not worried...

I love fireworks. I really do! Just not while they're exploding in the air right next to my bedroom window as I'm trying to go to bed. I remember the good old days. You know, the days when they had that ban on certain fireworks right around my current location. Much to our "surprise and joy" the ban is no longer.....and every minute of the Fourth of July I feel like I'm caught in the middle of this huge battle and I'm being shot at. So not ideal.

After attempting sleep more than once, I finally got my way. I didn't get up until noon! I was suffering from sleep-deprivation but now I'm cured! The house was still quiet so I decided to surf the internet (something I'm good at). I went to check up on my blog and got sidetracked when I started checking out other blogs that I follow, or that my friends follow. Did you know that they give out awards?? People even get sponsors for their blogs!! People pay money to put up ads too!

Clearly I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I created my blog. And there's still so many things that I don't understand - like the awards, sponsors, ads, how to get a button that people can grab off your blog....etc. BUT! I am not at all opposed to learning everything there is to learn about this wonderful newly-enlightened world of blogging.

Help is very much appreciated in this great undertaking

After spending a week in Seattle, it's now one of my favorite cities! There so much to do there, so many new things to try and experience....and in a whole new setting! I put an album up on facebook, so if you're friends with me you should definitely check them out. But here's a few too share, just for kicks and giggles.
We were SO water deprived, it was crazy!

The original Starbucks, founded in 1971

The Space Needle, where we ate lunch and then admired the gorgeous view from the observation deck at the very t0p.

All around, a good week and a good trip!
