Stale Cereal and Quality Friend Time

So the other morning I woke up and decided I would open my box of Reese's Puffs cereal. I was getting so excited as I poured the milk in the bowl and sat down to eat it. It'd been forever since I had some! I take a bite and, "What?!" Yes you guessed it, the cereal was stale and past the expiration date. I was so beyond disappointed and upset! I was really looking forward to eating that chocolaty goodness. So I am making it a point from now on to check the expiration dates on my food products, especially my cereal.

I have been house-sitting this week and spending some quality time with one of my best friends, Reghan. Sure beats turning into a crazy cat woman. I was honestly starting to have conversations with them. The two of us girls have been talking and laughing about everything.  To me, our time is always like therapy. That's when you know you have a fantastic best friend. We have also been spending some time up at Camp Genesis and were pretty much convinced to come back next year as counselors. Needless to say, I'm getting fairly excited about it. I live for church camps every summer. I couldn't imagine not going every summer. Last year we were counselors for the first time at Rock Creek. It was such a fun experience. After growing up there, how could we not come back as counselors? The girls in our cabin were great and we are hoping that we get to be with them again this year. Can't believe it's only a few weeks away! Guess I should start planning? Off to start writing out a list!

Until next type!

Starting Up In Blogger Land

I've been trying to convince myself to get a blog for several months and I had a sudden urge to today. So here I am! I'm probably just gonna blab about a bunch of nothing but maybe once in a while I can manage to come up with something good. I'm just going to say this will be my online journal. Here we go!

I guess I should start by telling a little bit about who I am.
I consider myself to be an eclectic person and I talk to myself quite often, thus the title. I love a little of pretty much everything, especially where music is concerned. Vintage looking clothes, owls, peacocks, black and white photos and Jane Austen, are just a few of my obsessions. Enjoying life, family, and friends are certainly on my priorities list. I've learned that if you don't have them and God, you have nothing. Along the lines of family, I'm the oldest of four and just so happen to be the only girl. So yes, I've grown up being the princess. I really do love my family and wouldn't trade them for anything. Same thing with my friends! Most of them, I have had for pretty much all my life and I wouldn't make it without them. They're the best.
I am passionate about several things, but kids, people in need, and animals are high up there. That's why everytime I go on a mission trip, I want to bring all the kids back. Same with dogs and cats. No telling how many strays I have brought home. Haha. At some point I would love to travel the world, especially Europe. I am determined to, so it will happen! I am excited for what the future holds. I'm studying to be a Wedding Planner/ Organizer. I'll be doing what I love as my career and that's what you're suppose to do. At some point I'll be a wife and mom but for now, I'm just walking through the doors God opens.

Until next type!
