Well friends, I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Weekend and summer so far. I know I have abandoned my blogging life and I am sincerely sorry. I have missed you all, and when I've had time I have caught up with some of you by reading your blogs!

This past weekend I've worked 3 doubles in a row and while I wasn't working I spent time catching up with friends and at church..

This is where I work:
Pretty gorgeous, huh? This picture was taken from the actual beach and this is the back of the restaurant. If you are ever in the area, come check us out and let me wait on you! 

A night out (after work of course)

On the boat Thursday before the crazy working schedule. 

In other news..MY BIRTHDAY IS SUNDAY! Yes, so that means that yesterday was officially the start of my birthday week. Here is my FIRST birthday present from my Big..

She knows me too well.. (excuse the mess, I had just got done with one of my doubles waiting tables on the patio and it was a million degrees that night). 

This week I have another crazy work schedule ahead and birthday festivities planned out, so I can't promise that I will be back before next week. I will post again next week for sure with a birthday recap!

A late Mother's Day Recap..

I know I'm late, but here are some pictures to wrap up Mothers Day. 

Momma's Mothers Day Present

It was also my sweet Grandmothers birthday, so she got double the presents. Or in my family's case, double the flowers.

However you celebrated, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Thankful Thursdays

Today I am linking up with Melissa from Bless this Voignier Nest for Thankful Thursdays. I always look forward to reading her posts and she is such an inspirational person! 

A little about Thankful Thursday:

"Thankful Thursday is a way to share what you are thankful for. It can be the biggest or smallest thing in your life. All blessing are worth a shout out."

-My Momma! I know this is kind of generic considering Mother's Day is around the corner, but I truly am thankful for her. She has been my rock throughout my life and I don't know a person who is stronger than her. 

-Beautiful weather. This has been me the past few days...

I think it speaks for itself. 

-All of the wonderful family members and friends I have in my life. 

-The opportunity to have another year of school behind me and another ahead!

 " Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon his name.  Make known his deeds among the peoples.
1 Chronicles 16:8"

Venture over to Melissa's blog and join in on Thankful Thursday!
What are you thankful for?

Also, don't forget to check out Kelly's Giveaway over at Messy.Dirty.Hair.! She has a fabulous giveaway going on:

One door closes..

It is officially the first day of the first week of my Summer Vacation! WOOHOO! 

 I ended this semester with all A's, a million life lessons, and a huge group of friends that graduated. As my summer begins I find myself will a million DIY projects, a new book, and working only on the weekends (until after Memorial Weekend). Anyway, I could not be more excited. Lets play catch up..

Sarah at her graduation

Sarah and Amanda, my Big and Grandbig who graduated!

Tim's family ended up not being able to be at his departmental graduation, so I went and took pictures for his family. Talk about tough.. 

My First DIY project:
Pillows for the living room of my new apartment in the fall. Here is the fabric that will be on the front of the pillows, and I hope to do solid turquoise for the backs. 

My Grandmother is going to help me sew these babies! Can't wait to see what they will look like! 

The Hunger Games
I saw the movie and fell in love so I must read the book. A lot of people I know said the movie was missing a lot of information that the book has, so I have to read it! I'm waiting for the sun to come out today so I can go to the beach and start! 

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

It's OK Thursday

I really need to do this today, so I'm linking up with Amber at Brunch with Amber and here are all of my confessions:

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK...

-that I just finished my Sophomore year, and I am actually sad about this.
-that my bank account is below empty and I had to bum money off my Momma yeterday.. whoops.
-that graduation is this weekend and on top of everything else, this has added loops to my emotional rollercoaster I'm on.
-that I change my mind at least 100 times a day.
-that I have been the biggest baby the past two weeks.
-that I've gone to the gym only 5 times in the past two weeks (not me at all).
-that I've been in bed every night at 9.
-that I hate hurting people's feelings so I do whatever I can to make others happy, and this often results in my feelings being hurt.

On a lighter note.. we do have some wonderful things to look forward to..

-today, I am alive
-I am a child of God and he loves me so, even when I feel alone.
-Summer is officially here!!!
-My Birthday is officially in ONE MONTH!

What's OK with you today?
