catching up!

So, one perk of not having a job is getting to spend time with friends and make new ones! This week I took advantage of the opportunity!

I got to spend a whole day with my good friend, Katelyn! She lives all the way in Rhode Island so it was a treat to get to spend some time with her and catch up! =)
I spent the next two days with my friend, Lydia. She lives a little closer but I still don't get to see her as often as I would like! We went to 3 different Goodwills in one afternoon and found some good stuff!
Thursday and Friday night I got to babysit two of the cutest, sweetest little kids ever. It was the first time meeting both the kids and their parents. They were such a sweet family! I babysat them at a resort since their parents were there for business. Babysitting is even better when you get room service, free wi-fi, movies on demand...and a TV in the bathroom mirror! I mean, seriously...who thinks of these things???

Well, another week of summer has quickly flew by! More memories made, and now on to making even more! I can't wait to see what this week has in store. A job maybe? Still crossing my fingers!!!

wouldn't it be nice?

Today I would love two things.

1) To go back to school in the fall and graduate in the spring. This is my friend, Leah, and our friend/recent grad, Jamie! I would love more than anything to be stylin' that cap and gown next May!

2) To get on a plane and leave for New York City next month. I helped teach in a summer school program for a couple weeks last summer and some of the group is planning on going again this year. For those of you who don't heart lives in NYC. I've only been there twice but I'm in love and I know it's where God wants me to be. I have such a burden for the city, especially the kids. Here are a few of my students and fellow teachers!

Well, these are the things I want. But there is ONE problem. I need money to do both. Oh, and anyone alive and breathing knows that we don't get everything we want. =P I'm trusting God because no matter what, things will work out according to His plan. If He wants me back at school, I'll be there...if not, He will have something else planned. If He wants me in NYC next month, I'll get there...if not, He knows it is better for me here at home. Prayers that I will continue to trust in God's plan and to remember that He will provide in whichever way is best are appreciated! Hope you all have a great week! Tomorrow I leave for a few days of much needed fun with some girl friends I haven't seen in a while! I will definitely be sharing some pics later this week. =)

And...I'm back.

Well, I'm still alive. Blogging has been on the back burner the last couple weeks and I'd say it is about time to get back to it! Since I've been MIA, I finished my Junior year of college and have since been here at home job hunting. The job hunt hasn't been very successful. Trying to find a summer job that doesn't involve frying burgers is hard stuff! I've had a few interviews which all seemed to go really well, only to later receive a big fat no in the end. Not gonna lie...I'm getting a little really nervous about paying my school bill before the fall semester starts up. This is definitely an opportunity to trust God big time. If any of you think about it, any prayers or fingers crossed would be much appreciated!

And as the job hunt continues...I'm trying to make the most out of summer. Bonfires, beach trips, shopping, movie nights, and receiving the worst tan line EVER from sitting out at an air show for 5 hours. Yes, fun stuff indeed. And as much as my mom keeps mentioning how she wishes I had a job, I don't think she minds the amount of cleaning I did for her today around the house. It can be hard to find fun things to do with an empty wallet, but I'm getting by.

Here's a little instagram peek of my summer so far!

1. Ate dinner by the lake with friends one night during my summer class.
2. Celebrating National Chocolate Chip Day!!!
3. Driving 4 hours back home!
4&5. Completed my first 5K with my sis-in-law, Julie, and my mom! And what is even more fantastic than was the COLOR RUN!!! I recommend everyone does this at least once!
6. My temptation to steal the dogs from the pet store grows every day.
7. Movie night and ice cream with some of the girls!
8. Cooling off with a snow cone during the air show. =)
