Growing up

Ever since I was old enough to care, my favorite color has been purple. Then at some point, I discovered that pink is pretty too. My bedroom has always been decorated (somewhat) with purple and pink, besides the few years that my bedroom was adorned with BASEBALL wallpaper. Once I finally got out of the baseball room, I had purple walls. SO pretty.

I've gone through flower, pastel, etc bed comforters. Posters on the wall. Stuffed animals all over the room. Etc. Now it's time for an adult look. I bought a new comforter for my bed. It is black and a tan/gold color. Wide stripes of different fabrics. Very elegant. Very beautiful.

My plan is to decorate my room around my comforter. Tan/gold colored curtains. Not sure what else yet. I'm very excited about it.

Ah, the joy of Blogging

Recently a friend of mine wrote a blog about how her life is full of things that aren't really "blog worthy". Yet she keeps writing them. And people enjoy her spin on random, "non-important" happenings. I feel the same way. My life is so boring right now. I sleep. I wake up. I go to work. I go home. I watch tv. I go to bed. And then it starts over. On Saturdays I sleep in. I wake up. I watch tv. Maybe do some scrapbooking or something. I clean some. I go to bed. On Sunday I wake up. I go to church. I have lunch with my parents or friends. I go home. I watch tv. I go to bed. I sleep. And then it all starts over again.

When did my life become so boring?! I used to hang out with friends all the time. I used to be a busy girl. Now, I'm not. And I don't feel like my life is doing much. I mean, before I started working here, I felt like I was wasting my life. Now I have a great job, in a christian environment, with people I love. But I still kind of feel like I'm wasting my life. Like there is so much more that God has planned for my life. And I'm so ready to get started with it! But apparently it's not God's timing yet.

So here I am. With a boring non-"blog worthy" life. Waiting for God's timing. Which has been my motto for several years now.

The Devil

Let me tell you people, the devil is out to kill. He loves to pile things on top of your head, just when you think it can't get any worse. That's his job! And he LOVES his job!

My friend's car was pretty much totaled yesterday. Last night, she had parked her car (that she got in March) in their garage (At the top of the very steep driveway) and then it proceeded to ROLL down the drive way, hit the corner of her mom's SUV, rolled across the street, in between 2 cars (missing them both by inches), in between 2 houses, hit the AC unit on one house, knocked it completely off the foundation, tore down the fence, and then stopped. Thank God no one was walking on the street or anything. It could have been SO much worse than it was. But at the same time, it was pretty bad. Now she is having to deal with the insurance company and all of their confusions, as well as figuring out what to do with her car.

See, my friend has been doing what God wants her to do lately. Her dad is going on a mission trip in 2 months and we have been raising money for that. She has been doing all kinds of things to raise money. Collecting cans, coins, etc. And it is exactly what God wants her to do. Which is why Satan is pouring out the crap on top of her head! Poor thing.

So my beautiful Forever Friend Katie got married this past Saturday. It was such a beautiful ceremony. I couldn't be happier for her.

I did the photo guestbook for Katie. I took pictures of everyone as they came in, and they wrote messages to the Bride and Groom on 3x5 cards colored in red, black, and silver. It's going to be really unique when the guestbook is done.

Lately, I haven’t really felt like blogging. I feel like I have nothing to blog about. Job is going good. Roommate is awesome. Sister is awesome. The rest of my family is good.

Tomorrow is the birthday of our country. No work. Fireworks, food, and fun. I’m proud to be an American. Like no one can believe. My heart bleeds red, white, and blue. My heart also breaks for my country. We’ve definitely seen better days.

So, I’m reading this book, “Someday My Prince Will Come”. It’s about this girl who wanted to be a princess. It’s a true story. The girl wrote the book about her life. It’s very interesting. But she talks about moving to London for graduate school. All the things she talks about in the book. And my friend who lives in Edinburgh, Scotland. It really makes me want to live abroad for a while. Maybe for school. Maybe just for the experience. It would be SO much fun.

I’ve been thinking about writing a book. No clue what I want to write about. But I have characters running through my head all day long. Where do they come from? Where are they going? What do they do? I don’t know.

So this blog is totally random.

My roommate called me from home today saying that the plumbers need to cut through my sister’s wall to fix the OUTSIDE spout that anyone in the building can use. Um…NO. I called our landlord and she was mad. Because #1 they didn’t call her and she is the owner. #2 they didn’t schedule a time convenient for us. #3 she doesn’t understand why they have to cut through the inside wall to fix a spout on the outside.

Needless to say, she’s calling the association to “give them hell”. LOL! She’s so funny.

Ok children. I’m going to lunch. Lata!
