MIA & why you should never trust a librarian

I guess that is how you can describe me. I have been MIA. Not on purporse but because my life has been so hectic and crazy.
I sooo wish I had pictures from last night. Colton and I went with some of the people at his work and their girlfriends to Fox and the Hound (or is it Fox and Hound?) . I can honestly say...HANDS DOWN...I have never been to a bar before. We initially wanted to go bowling but that got nixed because they closed at midnight and we wouldn't get a lane (it was 10:30). So we went next door. Well, Wednesday nights just happened to be Karoke night. BAHA!! It was hysterical. Although Colton and I didnt drink, it was funny as heck to watch these grown people stand up there with no care at all and belt it out. Ryan was the best of the night until Colton sang "Waiting on the world to change" by John Mayer. It was the absolute very first time I have ever heard him sing (in almost SEVEN YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!) He is a great singer. He then sang "Come what may" from Moulin Rouge with me. haha. I was told I sang "like a disney princess" and someone said I sounded like "the character from beauty and the beast" (I hope he was referring to Belle. ha!) I think they were just drunk because I cant carry a tune worth diddly.
That was the extent of the "fun" part of my hecticness.
As far as my jobs go. I went in for the drug test for the rec job Monday and *fingers crossed* I should start next Monday (the 4th). I got accepted into the buyout which means TECHNICALLY this is my last day at work *yay!* and I will still get two months pay compensation. However, they asked me to work ON TOP of the two months at my regular hourly pay pt time until school starts. So after today I have 6 more days at the library. (Tues&Thurs for three weeks), and then I am gone for good.
This is great news, especially after what happened yesterday. A girl who has worked here part time for years, Josalyn's, last day was last night. I came up with the idea of getting her a going away gift (which I bought a basket and filled it with snacks for her trip to Austin, that's where she is moving, and a giftcard to Starbucks). I LOVE presents. I love buying them, I love wrapping them, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE to give them. I know it sounds corny, but I actually look forward to all of that. Anyways, I wrapped it beautifully (people said it looked like a professional basket you get at a floral shop) and I had it in the break room with me while I was eating dinner waiting for her to show up. I kid you not my supervisor walked in and ROLLED HER EYES and sighed after she saw it and then walked out. Then, the LIBRARY DIRECTOR and her came in and my supervisor pointed at it and they grabbed it. They said "We need to give this to her" I said "why?" thinking they were kidding...
They just said "Don't worry about it, we'll have her talk to you" another girl i work with and I stood there and laughed because we thought they were kidding and they blocked the door and walked out with it.
I was pretty ticked, I'm not gonna lie. They literally just stole our gift. Come to find out they "presented it" to her as a gift from them as their thanks and appreciation and this is a DIRECT QUOTE "We got you something as a token of our appreciation. It's not much, but we thought it would be nice. It is from us and the staff here at the library."
What the heck?!
Jokes on them: i called Josalyn before she came to tell her what was up, but still?! THEY bought it. THEY thought about her. THEY did it?! What?!! I am not 100% positive, but I think that is stealing.
More later, got to do the mail.

Date Night

So, Colton sent me an email earlier that said "Hancock or Get Smart"
Which means...DATE NIGHT. Yay!! (Hopefully I'll remember to post pics bc blogs are no fun without them. *sigh*
So I have been praying about the job situation a lot and I think I have another door that has opened. This time at a rec center. I again don't want to be too detailed because I don't know what is going to happen, but I promise I will once everything is straightened out.
OH! I am starting a prayer journal, you know just a little something to help me out in keeping track of things I've prayed about and how they are handled. I think it will be a humbling and great expierence.
I am also looking for a new car. We sold me (kinda...they are going through the loan process right now). Yay! Finally getting a 4-door so I can have room to breathe in my car.

New Job?

I have a great job(where I am currently bored out of my mind sitting at a computer), but school is starting back up in August and I need to go part time. Yesterday was such a God day. I had 4 oppertunities open up in one day (and up until then, it was looking pretty grim).
Good news: I have an interview scheduled for a family who is looking for a part-time nanny. I dont want to go into too many details, seeing as how I havent interviewed yet, but I am really really excited. This is something I have always wanted to do.
I will definately be waaay more detailed later, but I just wanted to throw that out there.
Also, my wonderdul photographer Kandice Ray messaged me and finished our wedding pictures and mailed them out yesterday. YAY!! So I can't freakin wait to receive and share those!!
Seriously, if you need a photographer...she's your girl. AMAZING!!!!

First Post

Well, after spending the past year planning a wedding and working on my knotbio. The wedding was wonderful, a dream come true...truly.
Now, it is time for me to be a big girl and finally get a blog. Here I will post random happenings on my days...
just a little bit about me. I am a 21 year old married student. I know it sounds crazy to be married so you and still have so much ahead of me, but we have been together over 6 years. Which, to be honest, is longer than a lot of married couples I know.
There will be laughter, tears, love, anger, and lots of other feelings shared throughout this blog. This post is a little boring, but eventually this will be more interesting.
