What A Great Day!

Hey Y'all!
I know that this Thursday I haven't linked up to anything... I have been busy and have had the best day! Want to here??? Oh you do!!!! Welp here we go! 

I arrived at work around the usual for late weeks... which is 8:15AM. I was a little dressed up for my special lunch out. When I arrived our visitor, Judy, from headquarters (or the towers as we call them) was already there. I was rushing around trying to prepare my morning work routine which consist of getting coffee, changing the date displays, getting my drawer, turning on my computer and getting the programs up that I use daily, and then checking the work from the day before (at least these things are what I do on my late mornings). By the way I am a teller at a bank. Don't know if I have mentioned that or not?? 

Unfortunately Judy threw off my morning routine by doing an audit on my drawer before I could check the work from the day before. But everything worked out my audit was perfect!!! And I got all the work checked by 9AM. Which is when we open the lobby doors... we open the drive thru at 8AM FYI. 

After this I got the usual bunch of daily customers which was great and we were pretty steady until around 10:30AM. Which was good consider we all were in for a surprise when the electricity went out around 11:15AM. Thank goodness we all have cell phones to call around and inform. Unfortunately, there were still customers coming in to cash checks, make deposits and withdraws and do various other transactions. Which for us tellers means we had to document everything we were doing and for the customer trusting us to do the transactions when the electricity comes back on. I was already a little anxious around this time simply because I was meeting my Dad (Uncle who adopted me when I was 2.5 years old) at Applebees for his birthday! 

I did manage to make it to Applebees with no problems and even got a table, and told the waitress that it was my dad's birthday.  When we walked through the door I was overcome with joy! (See my Dad lives in Tennessee and I rarely get to see him especially not on his birthday.) He looked REALLY GOOD too... he has lost some major weight and look healthier and more in shape! We got to talking and catching up. Then we order the soup, salad, bread combo... which is all you can eat!!! I got the french onion soup, house salad and bread and Dad got the Tomato Basil soup, spinach salad, and bread. It was yummy! On our second round we switch soup and can I just say that Applebee's Tomato Basil soup is DE-LICIOUS! No joke. (Like I saying ... get up from your computer, get in your car, drive to the nearest Applebee's and eat this soup right now kinda good!) When we were finished our meal is when the waitress and her gang of servers walked up... I can still hear Dad saying "They aren't coming to this table for me are they??? They are coming to this table for me???" And when they stopped at our table and began to sing ... my Dad's face turned BRIGHT RED.... what a priceless moment that was for me! And they gave him a complementary birthday hot fudge sundae shooter... since he is watching his figure he said I could eat it... though he did snag the cherry before handing it over. Then I took out his birthday card that I got for him! I really think it made his day! Then we went our separate ways.... which I hate. He headed on to Richmond, Virginia and I headed back to work. But man was it a great lunch!

Once returned safe and sound back to work I found power had been restored. I did the transactions from when the power was down, did current transactions and balanced my drawer. Then was called in to have a meeting because on of the programs we use is being revamped come June 11th. I am really excited about the changes being made. Once the meeting was over we locked the doors to the lobby (at 3PM). And started running work and getting ready for the end of the day. 

Man was it a great day. Happy birthday Dad/Farmer Jack, and Happy Birthday Mom I love you and am sending birthday wishes to you on angels wings....miss you so much.

Hope today was a blessing to you! Tomorrow is Friday!!!! Heck Yes!

Photobucket
1. If you were to start your own business, what would it be?
I would have a abstract art coffee joint. Where you can purchase or make abstract art, take guitar lesson with my best friend Brian, have poetry or other literature readings,  hear local musicians, oh and get delicious coffee. And I would have a conference hall in the back so that I could do retreats for bloggers, artists, christians, writers and musicians.

Is This True For Anyone Besides Me????

I have no idea! Haha.
4. The world is ending, what do you do? Allow yourself to die? Fight? Hide? Etc.
I would probably Fight but would also know with certainty if I did die that I would go to Heaven!
5. What is your favorite meal of the day?
Mmmm... Midnight snack! I am a night eater which basically means I don't eat alot during the day but dinner and after I shovel food in like its air!
6. How do you best learn? Visual? Listening? Hands on?
All three. I love to listen but then again I love hands on!

Soundtrack To My Life


SOUNDTRACK TO MY LIFE:
1. Pearl Jam: Just Breathe
 Wonder everyday
As I look upon your face, aw huh...
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, aw huh...
Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
As I come clean
2. Demi Lavato: Skyscraper
As the smoke clears, I awaken
And untangle you from me
Would it make you feel better
To watch me while I bleed?
All my windows still are broken
But I'm standing on my feet
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I'm made of glass
Like I'm made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper
3. Pink: F***in' Perfect
You're so mean when you talk
About yourself. You were wrong.
Change the voices in your head
Make them like you instead.
So complicated,
Look happy, You'll make it!
Filled with so much hatred
Such a tired game
It's enough, I've done all I could think of
Chased down all my demons
I've seen you do the same
(Ohh ohhhhhhh)
Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel
Like you're less than fucking perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you're nothing, you're fucking perfect to me
4. Seventh Day Slumber: Matthew 25
I call myself a man of God
While laughing at my brother
I crossed the heart of a hungry man
Instead of giving him some bread
And what I say
And what I do
Are not the same anymore
And who I slay, who I betray
Lord have mercy on my soul
And you were hungry
And you were thirsty
You were lonely you were cold
And you were hurting, you were dying
I just left you all alone
5. Tenth Avenue North: You Are More
But don't you know who you are,
What's been done for you?
Yeah don't you know who you are?
You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.
6. Alli Rogers: Eden
We're all homesick
Is love the reason?
My hunger led me to your hope
Until the end of this colder season
Keep us warm
Cause we are always Eden
The day after she fell
We feel good and evil
And choose which one to tell
7. Otis Redding: Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay
Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
8. R. Kelly: World's Greatest
In the ring of life I'll rain love(I will rain)
And the world will notice a king(oh yeeeah)
Where there is darrkness, I'll shine a light(shine a light)
And the mirrors of success reflect in me(meeee)
I'm that star up in the sky(Ohhhhhhh Yeah)
I'm that mountain peak up high(Hiiiiigh)
Hey, I made it(Said I made it)
I'm the world's greatest(I'm that little bit)
And I'm that little bit of hope(Of hope yeaaah)
When my back's against the ropes(I can)
I can feel it(Feel it)
I'm the world's greatest
9. Miley & Billy Rae Cyrus: Butterfly Fly Away
Caterpillar in the tree
How you wonder who you'll be
Can't go far but you can always dream
Wish you may and wish you might
Don't you worry,hold on tight
I promise you there will come a day
Butterfly fly away
Butterfly fly away(Butterfly fly away)
Got your wings,now you can't stay
Take those dreams and make them all come true
Butterfly fly away(Butterfly fly away)
You've been waiting for this day
All along you know just what to do
10. Fanny Crosby: Near The Cross
Jesus keep me near the cross,
there's a precious fountain;
free to all a healing stream,
flows from Calvary's mountain.
Near the cross I watch and wait,
hoping and trusting ever;
'til I reach that golden strand,
it's just beyond the river.
In the cross,
in the cross be my glory ever;
'til my raptured soul shall find,
one of these days I will find rest,
rest beyond the river.
In the cross,
in the cross be my glory ever;
'til my raptured,
'til my raptured soul shall find
rest beyond the river.
He'll give me wonderful rest.
He'll give me sanctified rest.
He'll give me glorious rest.
He'll give me everlasting rest.
Rest, He'll give me rest.
Rest, He'll give me rest.
He'll give me wonderful rest.
Rest, He'll give me rest.
He'll give me sanctified rest.
Rest, He'll give me rest.
He'll give me glorious rest.
Rest, He'll give me rest.
He'll give me everlasting rest.
Rest, rest.
Rest, rest.
Rest beyond the river.

I hope these snipits of the song encourage and inspire your on this fine Tuesday! Y'all have a great day now ya hear!

Happy Monday!

Hey Y'all!
I hope you had a great weekend. I know that I did!
 Friday after work I babysat Abby and James... we went on a walk and did a scavenger hunt which was really fun, then we went to the mall for some Maggie Moo's ice cream and so that i could get a strapless bra.

Saturday I got all ready for the wedding. (Did I tell y'all I found a dress!) It is a tube top dress... my first... and it is totally lovely. I will have to post pics after work. The wedding was beautiful! The ceremony was on the beach, the weather was gorgeous and of course Krista looks absolutely beautiful. Mark looked very handsome as well! The thing I loved most about the wedding was the connection Mark and Krista had every single time they looked into each others eyes. You just could see the love! It was such a pure moment.

Yesterday I pretty much just chillaxed all day. Brian and I did go and see Battleship at 10:20PM. Great movie. Action packed, funny, with a little love mixed in!

This week is special because this Thursday I turn 24!!!!!!!!! I can't believe I am that old. It is the only birthday I will have where my age and the date will match up. 24 on the 24th! Feel free to send me a gift! That would be such a blessing!

I hope y'all enjoy your Monday! Also, I want to leave with you a note of encouragement: "Charm is deceptive and beauty does not last, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised." May you be a woman who fears the Lord today and everyday!

4. What do you do with your money? (spend it, save it, invest it, bury it, etc)
Spend and save. I spend more than I would like to. Mainly on movies, gas, and eating out. But I always have enough to pay the bills so I guess I am doing something right!
5. What was the last quote or statement you heard that really hit you?My life is but a weaving between God and me
 I do not choose the colors He worketh steadily
 Of times the weaveth sorrow and I foolish pride
 forget He sees the upper and I the underside

Will God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why
The dark threads areas needful in the skillful weaver's hand
As the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.
-Author Unknown


6. What do you do when you're driving alone? (ex: dance, sing, listen to talk radio, etc)

To Do To Sponsor To Change

Hey Y'all! How is your day going? Mine has been pretty slow but a good day overall. I can't believe tomorrow is Wednesday its going to Friday before you know it. So I have a couple of things I want to post about today so this post might come across as all over the place. So let me just start:

1. My To-Do List for this week.... well whats left of it.
A. Put my clothes away... I really just need to make this a habit.
B. Go through all the things in my room and car by tomorrow and make 4 piles: Keep, Donate, Sell, and Trash.
C. Get all the things for Donation together so I can drop them by my church tomorrow evening.
D. Pay my bills.
E. Check out World Vision and find Ester and sponsor her again (more on this below!)
F. Get gas.
G. Find an outfit for Mark and Krista's wedding this SATURDAY!!! They are one of the cutest couples I have ever had the pleasure knowing!
H. Pick out a wedding gift for Mark and Krista.
I. Get my eyebrows waxed.

Can I just say you will never know how your post will impact a person. Today I read this guest post on Brown Eyed Bell(e) it is about a family who listened to God and decided to sponsor a child. Man did it bring back memories about when I sponsored Ester.

ABOUT ESTER:
In high school I had found this website called world vision and I also had a friend very passionate about spreading awareness about Africa... well a group of friends..... who spread awareness about starvation in Africa, Aids in Africa, Kid soldiers in Africa... and much more. Well I started sponsoring a child in Malawi Africa and her name was Ester. She was awesome! Unfortunately when I went to college I stopped sponsoring her and that was what... in 2008. I am determined to find her again and sponsor  her. I am going to take my sponsorship more seriously. I was looking on the website today... World Vision... and I think --hope--pray--- I found her! I will have to double check with the packet I got when I was in high school. I so hope it is her! She was such a blessing in my life! I will have to take some pictures to share with you when I get home (I am at work right now) oh man I am excited.

Busy Little Bee

This weekend FLEW by. Did anyone elses???

Friday I worked until 5 got home around 5:30PM. Just relaxed a little and took a little nap. Me and my friend had a brillant idea to try and see the Avengers (which is amazing sense my friend DOES NOT like large crowds of people) we get to the theater and of course there were masses and lines of people everywhere... we turned right around and headed to another theater to see the movie Safe. It was REALLY good. We didn't get home until around 1 AM.

 Saturday morning I woke up at 6AM and headed over to my church for this event called CityServe. Basically the church as a large mass of people break into small groups (some groups were made up of 40 people others were as small as 3) we went out to the community and served them. Various projects ranging from yard work, flooring, painting, serving meals, cleaning houses etc. My group was working at a sister church and we painted the exterior of the church, did yard work, and re-carpeted the nursery. It was really nice to give back to the community but I must say I was exhausted afterwards. But so rewarding. Then Saturday night I watched Iron Man and Iron Man 2.

Sunday I went to late service at 11AM. Service was really good plus we got to take communion which was a treat. Also, new small groups are up so we can sign up for the summer class... I have like 6 I want to take. Haha. Also, they are doing a MEGA YARDSALE to raise money for a minstry group. I am planning on donating the majority of my things. My car is FULL of boxes that I have to go through and my room is pretty FULL of boxes and stuff I don't need so I am going to donate it to the church.

I may be posting some stuff for sale here but it all depends as the church is going to a good cause. Anyways. I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday.... just remember the weekend will be here before you know it.

FYI & Tuesday 10


Alright so first off.... HAPPY TUESDAY!
Second off... and this is the FYI.... I am trying to get rid of some things and thought that I would offer it on here. Like I said I am going through boxes of things (as Sheri told me Sunday afternoon that I had to get all my stuff out of there garage... and unfortunately I don't have the room to store it all so what better way to get ride of it then to offer it to my blog friends. I will probably make a Page Tab up and entitle it something along the lines of FOR SALE and will post about it. I will charge a shipping fee for it unless you live locally. And as far as categorizing what I am going to sell or give away it will range from books, to clothes, to stuffed animals/beanie babies, to bags/purses etc. So keep a eye out on my blog.


Now on to Tuesday 10:
10 People I Would Love To Meet:
1. Ellen Degeneres:
I think she is the coolest and very funny.

2. Max Lucado:
My favorite Christan author.

3. Beth Moore:
 I have seen some of her conferences but would absolutely love to meet her personally.

4. Mother Mary:
  I would love to meet the Mother of Jesus. She is like the ultimate mother.

5. Jesus:
 I know I will meet Him one day in Heaven and I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!

6. Jane Austen.

7. Rachel Joy Scott:
 One of the victims of Columbine. I have read her journal and a couple of books her father has published about her and her life and I think she would be a joy to meet.

8. Channing Tatum:
I think he is a great actor and so hot. Plus who doesn't love a guy that can dance???

9 & 10. Adam and Eve:
To be the first people must have been amazing. And to be in communication with the animals but more important with God it would have been awesome. I know that they sinned and now we are a fallen people but think of it this way if they hadn't of sin then there wouldn't be any Jesus... how weird would that be???

I would love to meet all these people and who's to say I never will???
Have a great day y'all!
