Well hello world!

Good news, I'm alive! Bad news, I have hardly any time to blog anymore. Which is annoying, but I'm gonna find a way to make time because I miss it. A lot.

So I'm in a relationship now. Quite possibly the best relationship I've ever been in. Well, actually this IS the best relationship I've ever been in.

More details later! (But here is something to get me by for now)

Other than that- still up and down with my weightless (that hasn't really changed since uhhh a year ago'ish? That needs to change ugh.

In a relationship again means fat and happy, right? Rightttttt but that needs to not happen. So I went and bought some healthy lunch stuff this week to get started on (crossing my fingers I can stick to this).

Ok, I will update this more later when I'm not like passing out from the long week (so tired!)

Moving on to a new beginning...

I know I’ve been such a slacker on the posting lately, but it’s been so busy in my world (which is a first). So a few weeks ago, I was really stressed out with my job. Seriously. It was taking over my life. I came home every day with such a negative attitude, and I finally decided it was time to start looking for a new job. Don’t get me wrong…I love the people I work with, and I loved my job before they tried making a 2 person job, a 1 person job. I just realized that it was out of my hands now, and I needed to find something I could do where I am actually happy. I prayed and prayed for God to help guide me in the right direction of a decision about the job thing. I actually interviewed at 3 places I got 2 of the 3 jobs. The job I accepted ended up being PERFECT and there couldn’t have been a more clear answer for God’s will. So I’m starting my new job on Monday at an eye clinic, and they’re actually going to help me get my Eye Tech certification. I have my new scrubs (which are SO CUTE) ordered, and I'm ready to go...I’m so excited! So wish me luck ya’ll. I feel like now I can finally focus on my weightloss, because this has been such a battle these past few weeks. I have been eating alright, but not exercising whatsoever. I’m still stuck in the plateau, haven’t lost, haven’t gained, but I feel like since my career is back on track, I can now focus on my weight which is so important! I miss ya’ll though & please write me to let me know how things are going with ya’ll! Say a prayer for me if ya’ll think about it!

Why You're Single

You’re single because you’re single. It’s not because you texted too much or too little or waited 33 minutes to respond because he took 23. It’s not because you met up with your ex that night at 5 a.m. that no one knows about, or because you kissed another boy after a date with a loser.

You’re not single because you spit food on that date or tripped coming out the the movie theatre. You’re not single because you hurt your first boyfriend really badly when you were 15 or because you have yet, to this day, to apologize. It’s not because you were secretly jealous when your friend got a boyfriend or that a guy you dated for two months now has a really cute girlfriend and looks really happy. And you’re happy for him. But still ill that he found someone before you.

You’re not single because you slept with your ex boyfriend. You’re not single because half the world found out when you didn’t even want to remember it yourself. You’re not single because you think the guy your friend wants to hook you up with is ugly or not tall enough. It’s not because you’re not willing to put up with someone who doesn’t brush their teeth on a regular basis.

You’re not single because your standards are too high. Good for you for having standards. It’s not because you didn’t like that really, really good guy who wanted to take you on a date and you just weren’t feeling it. And it’s not because you like to wear pajama pants as soon as you get home and wash all the makeup off your face. You’re not single because you didn’t learn enough from the past or would rather chill on a Friday night with your blanket and a cold beer than shower, get ready, and go out. You’re not single because something is wrong with you.

You are single because you are single. It’s really as simple as that. You haven’t made the connection with another heart yet. You can get dolled up, dress cute, cut your hair, dye your hair, tweeze your eyebrows, put on lipstick and you may still. be. single. You can go out to a bar hoping to meet the love of your life and not find a damn one in the place attractive. And it’s going to remain that way until it’s time for you to find one. Stop hoping for it. Start living the life that you do have instead of wishing for things that you don’t have. There will come a time you’ll meet a boy and you’ll have to give up some of this single freedom you currently have. Start being more thankful. Start doing that now.

He's just not that into you...

YA'LL. are the highlights, lowlights & lessons learned of my weekend:

1.) If you even have to question if he is or not...he's just NOT that into you.
2.) LSU LOST :( wahhhhhh!
3.) Keep your true friends close. Especially when they deal with your BS.
4.) Your mom...she always knows best. ALWAYS.
5.) Backroads, country music, beer & friends...cures almost anything.
6.) Having sisters is probably the greatest blessing God has ever given me.

So this week has been pretty much one of those weekends you look back at and say, "WOW. That's the weekend my life turned around." Ok maybe that was a little dramatic, but seriously. I feel like I really learned a lot about life, myself, and other people this weekend, and it all kind of got put into perspective for me. I got closure from an ex-boyfriend that I've really been waiting on for the past month or so, I realized that true friends are very rare & that you need to appreciate the ones that you have, I realized that nothing feels better than a night with your friends cruising the backroads and singing country music at the top of your lungs, I came to the conclusion that my mom's advice is ALWAYS spot on whether I like to take it at the time or not, and I realized that my sisters are really the most wonderful treats EVER that God has put in my life.

Over the weekend, I read the book "He's Just Not that into You" on iBooks, and let me tell you...that book is probably the most straightforward piece of advice I've ever laid my eyes on. It was kind of like listening to advice from a friend that you KNOW is telling you the truth...but you just don't wanna hear it. That being said, it really opened my eyes up to my last relationship that failed...and I have no intentions of ever going back down that road again (which I really wanted to these past few weeks). It was the closure I needed. My best friend posted a quote on Instagram last week and it really spoke to me. It said..

"The moment you have to prove your worth to someone is the moment you should absolutely and utterly walk away."

So that being said, I went into this weekend with a really clear mind. Kind of like a fresh start that I've BEEN needing. I went to my dad's house to watch the LSU/Georgia football game this weekend. THEY FREAKING LOST. Grrrrrr. No pun intended on growling like a tiger when talking about the Tigers, ha. Since the game was early (2:30)...I kind of got my night started early too...meaning I had a little too much to drink. And by like 7...those 6 Bud Light Platinums were really making me feel a little adventurous. So 4 of my friends and I decided to go "ghost hunting" at a haunted cemetary right up the road. Needless to say, it didn't really turn into a ghost hunt. We were all way too scared, so drove thru instead...and nothing happened. So yeah. That's how that went. After that, we rode backroads, listented to music, and just had a really genuinely good time. I love nights like that. Nights where you can just hang out with your friends, enjoy the country life, and sing relatable songs at the top of your lungs. That always works out. I realized that my friends really are those friends that I can't live without. I mean...who really WANTS to ride around until 3 AM and listen to my shout out lyrics to every depressing song ever written? Not many I'm very grateful for my friends that are there for me no matter what. They always step up when I need them.

Another highlight of my weekend was spending time with my mom and my sisters. My mom actually lives about 2 hours away, so it isn't often that I get to see her. When I do, it's always nice though. She cooks up some good homecooked meals & gives me advice to stuff that always comes back to prove it's credibility (like the ex-boyfriend she told me to get away from months ago). And yesterday evening, me, my 8 year old sister, my 22 year old sisters and my 2 nephews piled up in bed and took a Sunday nap after a much needed afternoon together just bonding, talking, painting our nails, you know..just stuff sisters should do together. I love days like that.

Actually I just love weekends like that. They really make you thankful for the little things in life.

Obviously my nephew Levi wasn't up for my photo shoot.

But my youngest nephew Liam was...

Mom time!

Not a real post unless you post a selfie. 

My one and only niece, Mercy

Game day...night. Obviously I was a struggle at this point in the night. 

Sister time!

Ok y'all. Until next time :) let me know how y'all's weekend was!

Where I Thought I'd be at 25

Hey ya'll :) So it's been awhile since I've updated, and you know...not too much is new. Still kind of at a plateau with the weightloss thing. Didn't gain, didn't lose I guess it could be much worse, right?!

Anyway...this weekend was pretty cool. Got to spend alot of time with my family and friends, finally ended my last relationship completely. Well, it's been over, but we were still doing the whole hanging out and texting each other thing...we both decided to just cut it off completely so we can move on. It hurt alot at first, but ultimately, I really think that was the best thing for me emotionally. I won't feel like I'm getting "lead on" anymore. You know...we've all been there. Well, most of us have anyway.

If you would've asked me when I was 17 years old, where I thought I would be when I was 25...I would think I would have a couple of kids by now, a husband, and be living the whole perfect little dreamhouse with a white picket fence, story. Yeah right. Now that I'm 25, I see that life isn't always going to be that fairytale that you had dreamed of, and that maybe waiting for a husband, and kids, and all that...isn't so bad afterall. Of course there are days where I'm jealous because I see my sister that's 3 years younger than me with her little family and realize that 90% of my high school graduating class have all of these cute little families that I have always wanted...but you know- the more I think about it, the more I think that God is going to bless me with something amazing when the time is right.

Or I hope so at least :)

Here are a couple of pictures from the weekend! 

Me and my sweet sister :)

This is going to be a somewhat short post just because I'm tired and haven't updated in a couple of days.

Do y'all ever feel STUCK?! Like just stuck in life in general? It's been one of those days that I feel like...I'm just running in place.

You know...just a weird day. 

But it is raining outside so hopefully I'm about to get some good rest. I wrote a cute little quote on my chalkboard tonight that I'm going to share with y'all. Have a good weekend. Feel free to write me- I'm not up to much.
