I never ever ever have time anymore to update yall on my crazy little thing called life!

I try to at least read all of my favorite bloggies in my spare time but I'm super slack when it comes to writing my own here lately!
So I'm going to do a quick update and I promise come January when life slows down and I get back into the groove of things at my own branch I will write more frequently.

Work is still fantastic. I've been at a different branch helping out for a while.
The house is awesome! Me and Alex are doing great!
My family is doing well. My little brother and sister are finishing up their first semester and stressing out about exams. Other than that everyone is fantastic!

And as far as the love life goes....
Mr. Wonderful turned out to be super wonderful :)
I'm soooooooooooooo happy!
He's beyond all explination

So here's all about him.
We met through a friend who thought it would be good if we met each other.
Smart people :)
He's 24 and he lives in Lexington.
He graduated from Charleston Southern University with a bacherlors in Criminal Justice.
He has been in the Army for seven years
He also work for Lexington County Sheriff Department.

I'll let yall know if I try it on anyone else!


Wowwwwww I have been so super slack lately!
Sorry about the NON updates on here!

Anyways, down to business.
First and foremost....


ohhhhhhhhhhh yeah.

Clemson dominated Virginia Tech
This past weekend

Since we came back from Hilton Head
Alex and I have been super busy around the house and with other things.
She now has a new man in her life and I am so freakin ecstatic for her!
He's such a sweet guy and he's so good to her!
They've been spending so much time together but it's great!

I have been super busy seeing as how I just recently got a new gym membership
at Omni Health And Fitness
Let me just tell you.
The new owner was so helpful working with me to figure out exactly what I needed.
And the trainers are wonderful!
They broke down the basics of excersize and fat and why you need lean muscle
and the importance of strength training and yadda yadda yadda.
It made so much sense to me!
And it motivated me even more.
They even showed me how to correctly do different excersizes and ways to mix it up and do "muscle confusion"
But I'm only meeting with them once a month.
My friend J who you all may remember from this post
and I meet once a week.
And let me just tell you home girl kicks my little booty!

Work has been somewhat different here lately
I temporarily moved over to a branch on the other side of town to help out due to them
being short handed until January.
It's been fine but "There's no place like home"
I miss my home branch!
I love my little ladies I work with and I definitely miss my customers!
Plus all the officers that come in everyday!
Buuuuuuut we wound up getting some extra help over at the other branch
and my home branch had a short in workers so they sent me back home for two days!
It feels so good to be back!
And not to mention how happy my coworkers were to have me back.. they missed me :)
And my customers missed me too!
It always makes you feel good for your customers faces to light up when they see  you!

Well ladies, let's just say love life is getting better :)
(for those that have followed along)
"Guy I'm interested in"
is no longer so interesting.
Nothing happened really we just kind of faded off and realized we're better off friends.
Well it's been a few weeks now since this happened and I haven't really been looking.
And that's when "Mr. hopefully Wonderful" happened :)
I don't want to post names or any background info just yet because I want to see where it goes
But girls, he took me out on a date to one of my favorite restaurants
and I literally have never connected so much with someone I just met!
He lives a little over an hour away from me so we can only spend time together on the weekends he has off
But we've been on the phone for hours every night and on skype every night before we go to bed.
So far so good :)
And we're hanging out ALL DAY
this saturday!
I'll keep yall updated on how this goes... but keep your fingers crossed!

Home life has been fantastic!
I seriously could not ask for a better roommate!
She's wonderful and she puts up with me and my OCD which is terrific!
We have a blast together.
Her mom is in town this week
(love that woman)
And she is helping us decorate for Christmas which I love!
She bought our Christmas tree for us!
It was adorable!
We all went together like a little family
Alex, Madre, D (her bf) and me.
to the Farmer's Market and got our little 7 ft. tree.
We're going to finish decorating everything tonight when I get home from the gym :)
I'll definitely post pictures later!

I think that's all for the updates for now.
I'll post more later if I think of any.
Happy Hump Day Pretties :)

Share your world.

1. Do you buy cheap or expensive toliet paper?
I'm with Jessica on this one.
Angel soft all the way :)
2. What are your top two pet peeves?
It would definitely have to be people smacking with something in their mouths.
It literally drives me insane. I can't take it!
Have some manners and realize no one wants to see what food looks like once it gets to your mouth.
Second peeve of mine has to be silverware scraping a surface.
Usually metal or a plate or something.
I want to claw my eyes out!
It is so obnoxious it makes my teeth hurt!
3. What's the name of your best friend & tell us her best trait.
My Best friend's name is Alex.
Don't get me wrong. I have a lot of bests
But she is the greatest.
She has been there for me through most of the hard points in my life.
She is there to support me and encourage it when I need it.
She's the only person who can tell when something is wrong with me before I even realize something is wrong.
She doesn't judge me or anything.
When I'm at a vulnerable moment she knows to let me be.
She knows when to say something and when silence is just what I need.
She can always make me laugh and knows the right words to say.
She is the only person I've ever met that can tolerate me and all of my quirkiness because Lord knows I am hard to handle.
I love that girl to death!
(which is why she's also my roommate)

4. Tell us one of your quirks? What's different about you?
One of my biggest quirks is definitely my OCD
because it's only for certain things.
Cleaning wise, I'm super OCD except when it comes to my car.
My car is absolutely the dirtiest thing ever.
And I'm not sure why I'm like that but I am.
Also the way I count money
(being that I work at the bank)
All of my money has to face the exact same way.
Right side up and the top of the head has to be to the right.
It's weird I know but I can't count money any other way.
I'm also OCD about how I put my clothes on.
It's absolutely hilarious.
underwear, then bra, undershirt/tank top, pants, top, shoes.
And my shoes have to go on from right then left.
otherwise I am completely out of wack for the rest of the day.
Also, I count things.
like how many steps I take.
Weirdo I know.
Like people joke around about being OCD.
I'm legitimately OCD though.

5. List three of your favorite songs.
Hotel California - The Eagles
Beautiful, Beauiful - Francesca Battistelli
House that built me - Miranda Lambert

Playing Catch Up

Wow!! Sorry it has taken me so long to catch up! So much has been going on  around here lately that its hard to find time to really get any blogging done!
Thanksgiving was amazing. I spent most of my time curling my little sisters hair which was so nice! I love having girly bonding time with her! Then my family and I ate WAY too much as I’m sure most people did. My uncle who thinks he is all knowing at strategic board games broke out the “connect four” and got his butt kicked not once, not twice, but SEVEN times by all of the grandkids. It was truly priceless! I have NEVER beat him so it was awesome when I finally did!
Made my whole night ;)

Anyways I finally got all of the stuff for my “How the glitz stole Christmas” partner and it is in the mail on its way to Texas now!
I’m so stinking excited for her to get what I got her! I put some thought into it and im so proud of myself J

Then this past weekend I spent some much needed R&R time in Hilton Head with my best friend and her family. It was fantastic!
We just hung out at the house and had a few glasses of wine and caught up on life.
Saturday we went shopping at Coligny Beach on the island and I got some super cute jewelry.
Then we went to a local bar/grill to watch the Clemson vs Carolina game. Let’s not talk about that.
Then we went to cheap seats for some drinks and catching up with some friends. All in all we had a great night!
The drive back home was pretty entertaining also. We saw literally 8 wrecks which is insanity!
People cannot drive I’m telling you!

Then this past week we’ve just been spending quiet nights at home doing more of like chore type stuff. Laundry, grocery shopping and cleaning. You know typical house stuff!

Oh and I finally got a gym membership. WHICH I NEED. Cameron Diaz body by April… let’s do this!
I got a personal trainer who is also a great friend, J, and we are going to meet at least once a week. We met or the first time last night, and let me tell you, homegirl kicked my booty!
But I am now on a strict no soda, no fast food, no sugar, no caffeine kind of diet.
And as we are calling it #operationgohard is in full swing!
At the end of it I’ll post before and after pictures so stay tuned for that. It should be entertaining.
I’m also going to keep a journal of the progress I have made which I will post at the end of it also.
Hopefully this will turn out amazing. J is such an inspirational person and I know she is going to put her all into helping me.

Have a good Thursday ladies J
