Weekend

I had a good weekend, for the most part. On Saturday, most of my family members and I went to an amusement park located an hour east of our countryside home. My parents and 3 of my siblings had never been, so we enjoyed the overcast but warm day riding many, many rides. I think our favorites were the indoor roller coaster and the newest ride at the park, a spaceship that spins on a small track in the shape of a stretched-out U. For the youngest member of our family, the kid's section was where she wanted to spend most of her time! Rach enjoyed a small roller coaster and mini-freefall ride over and over again. We ended the day with a few snacks- nothing like fattening french fries, funnel cakes, and strawberries & ice cream in a waffle cone after having your stomach turned upside down a few times! ;)

Well, I love the weather there...

You Belong in LA

Forget living in a dirty, cold city - you'll take the beach instead.
Celebrity sightings, trendy restaurants, and clubbing all night are more your thing.
And who knows? You might become the next beautiful person the paparazzi stalks!

I don't know...and a random fact!

I don't know what to name this blog anymore. In 5 days I will no longer be a nanny, so the name must change. I'm so not creative when it comes to stuff like this!

And a random fact- 10 years ago today I broke my right arm at a VBS. I was running (in flip flops, on wet grass) and slipped. Two girls fell on top of me, and snap-snap. Two hospitals, a surgery, and almost an overnight stay before I was released with a cast up to my shoulder that would stay there for two months. That summer was not fun!

And now, it's time for bed!

You Are Midtown

You love so many things, you don't fit into any one label.
Your city girl persona goes to a fancy restaurant one night and a dive bar the next.

Friday Feast #153

Appetizer: Describe a toy you remember from your childhood. Oh boy...no toys really stand out, but we had a wonderful dogwood tree and a tire swing that we spent hours playing on- growing up in the country was the best!

Soup: On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how observant are you? I am pretty observant- maybe an 8 or 9

Salad: Where would you rather be at this very moment? On the beach in Hawaii...LOL!

Main Course: When was the last time you learned something new? Don't we learn something new every day? I spent part of the evening with a new friend of mine, and had a wonderful time learning more about her- does that count? :)

Friday Feast

Have a great weekend, everyone! I'm heading to an amusement park with most of my family members on Saturday- what do you have planned?

I love breakfast...

You Are Cereal

Playful and lighthearted, breakfast is likely your favorite meal of the day.
(In fact, you're probably the type who sneaks cereal as a midnight snack.)
Your culinary skills are probably a bit lacking... and you are a sucker for junk food.
Some people accuse you of eating like a kid, but you prefer to think of yourself as low maintenance.

Hmm....

Your Inner Muse is Thalia

You are most like this playful muse of comedy.
Life is all about laughter to you, and you're a natural comic.
You make people laugh until their sides split.
And you're always up for some play time!

Haha, that would be cool!

You'll Find a Boyfriend Within 3 Months

Maybe you need a bit more time to get over an ex
Or maybe you need a confidence boost to talk to new guys
Either way, you'll find a boyfriend in time...
As long as you keep getting out there and meeting new guys

Sounds good to me!

Your Ideal Marriage Proposal Is

Spontaneous, on a tropical vacation, when he realizes he can't be without you.

Life

Life has been crazy these last few months...so I haven't been a good blogger at all. I absolutely love having a blog, because looking back a year or two and seeing how I've changed is a wonderful thing for me to be able to do. However, in the last two months, I have gotten a job in a new city (and different state than I was in last year at this time!), moved, realized the job was not how it seemed, gone on vacation, been a bridesmaid in one of my best friend's weddings, spent lots of time with family and friends, had a meeting with my bosses about the job, had a weeklong family reunion in the mountains of New Hampshire, moved again, given 30 days notice at my job, and been doing a lot of job searching!! The job I am currently working will finish on August 2nd and we'll see what comes next! Until then, life is a blur!
