Fling before the Ring

I had a fabulous weekend! 

It was my good friend from high school's bachelorette party!

My other good friends from high school Julie and Katy through one heck of a party!!!
They did a great job, and I felt so lucky to be apart of this day!!

We had the bridal shower earlier in the morning, and then around 3 we all met and got cleaned up together.

We started with wine tasting...

Julie, Katy and I 


Beautiful bride to be with her mother, and sister! 

After wine tasting we went to dinner at the Steele Grille, so delicious. 
Katy made everyone fascinators, and had pins, rings, beaded necklaces for us!

Beautiful Bride and I 

After dinner we went back to the hotel suite for fun and games! 

From then on we went out for more fun and dancing!!!

As you can see it was sooo much fun!
I haven't been out with the girls in so long, and I forgot how much fun it was!
These girls have been there for me for years, and I love them to death!!! 
I wish my sweet friend Erika all the happiness in the world!

Katy/Julie-Props to you girls, you were amazing and did such a good job at all the party details!

I survived.... INTERVIEW!

I had my interview today! 

I felt like it went well, but let me tell you it was intense.....

So I kept thinking to myself...stay confident... interview was 2 hours long... It was a 2 session interview. 
Very intimidating. I was interviewed by a panel of 6 people. (4 principals, a curriculum coordinator, and the superintendent) 
They gave me a break in between sessions, which was the hardest part for me because I knew they were talking about my answers!

Overall I think it went well, and I find out Friday! 
Sooo please keep your fingers crossed for me!! 

Happy Tuesday!

A little bit of everything

So...I started work Friday night.
It went well, except for the fact that I found out I don't get any of the tips until I'm done "training". 
I have done this type of work for 4 years, so I don't think I should have to be trained that long.
Sorry..I had to vent for a quick second.

On my way to work!

Saturday I worked a couple hours, but then hung out with my family.
It was graduation here in our small town, but I felt like staying in.
Milli was quite the entertainer this weekend...

(this pic is my new favorite-looooveee the colors)

This is what I did :)

Sunday was mommy's day! So my sisters and I put out her gifts for her to see in the morning!

I got the idea for the basket off pinterest of course!

It was a great day to hang out with my mom!
We watched The Vow which made me want to MARRY Channing Tatum NOW!

So even though things are on the outs between Scott and I, I still want to be civil..and he is still Milli's dad...
Today is Scott's birthday.... he is 29.

I want to wish him a very happy day!

Hope everyone had a great Monday!

Happy Friday!!! 

I start my summer job tonight, and I am just slightly nervous.... that may be an understatement. 
I tend to be a perfectionist, so I hope I do good!

I hope all of your weeks' were fabulous!
I got some good news yesterday, but I am trying to be calm...
I have an teaching interview next Tuesday! Keep your fingers crossed for me!!!!

I found this quote and loved it..

I also thought I would do a tribute to my amazing mother since this Sunday is mommy's day!

My mother is so awesome, she was a single mom with me for about 5 years, she went to school, worked and raised me. She is my best friend. Seriously. I call her about 4 times a day when I don't live with her.

She is an art teacher, and she just finished her Master's in Art. Love Love Love her!

Love you momma!

Happy Friday!
