Overdue Explanation

Remember this post? Well now I feel it’s okay to explain everything.

Okay, so as you know, I’ve been applying for jobs all summer. Last week I finally had an interview with Bath & Body Works. When I applied for a job there, I applied for Co-Manager or Sales Lead. Both are full time positions and have reasonable pay.

The interview at B&BW was a preliminary interview. It was pretty much a group interview, as there were two other girls there besides me. The co-manager that interviewed us asked us questions such as “What did you do in this type of situation?”, “What would you do if this happened?”, etc. As she was interviewing us, she kept telling us things that hinted toward them looking for part-timers. That is not what I want. I have a somewhat full-time job now, and I don’t want a part-time job. I want a full-time job that is 40 hours a week with great pay and offers health benefits, because I will need those when my birthday comes in April.

Besides the hints of it being a part-time job, everything seemed to go well. The interviewer seemed to like all three of us, and she really listened to our answers to the questions, and genuinely tried to create a relationship with each of us. She said that we should all hear back by Wednesday of the next week, which was two days ago. I have yet to hear anything, and Wednesday night I applied for another job. (Click here to see my application journey this summer.)

I was really excited when I left the interview, and now I’m bummed that I haven’t heard anything. Oh well, I guess it wasn’t meant to be. Like I always tell myself and other people, everything happens for a reason! Hope y’all have a great weekend!

My Life is Boring

Well, I don't have much to blog about. Nothing out of the ordinary has happened. I work daily from 9 to 5 and have the weekends off. And this past weekend I didn't do anything spectacular. It was nice just to have a lazy weekend, though.

I still don't have any information for you about my last post, but I'm hoping to receive more by Wednesday. :)

Until then, Happy Monday!

Stay Tuned!

Not much has really happened in my life this week, except one thing.

Unfortunately for you, I don't want to talk about it just yet, until I know for sure something will come out if it. So please stay tuned and I'll give you the details, hopefully next week. :)

50th Wedding Anniversary and Bridal Shower

It has been such a busy weekend, but it was a great one!

Saturday was my great aunt's 50th wedding anniversary! It was fun and I saw a bunch of family that I hadn't seen in awhile. I was able to catch up with a few of them and eat, dance, and have good time.

Sunday I hosted (with 2 other girls) a bridal shower for my friend Danielle! It was held at our friend Christine's apartment so I was over there at 11am. We set everything up and got ready and by 12:15 we were just waiting on everyone. The shower didn't start until 2 so the three of us went to Chipotle for lunch. Yum! The lovely bride was the first to show, naturally. Then those from her family and the groom's family. Everyone ate and chatted, and then there were gifts. Everyone had a great time and Danielle got a lot of nice things.

Afterwards Christine, Nicole, and I cleaned up everything and sent Danielle on her merry way. Nicole and I ended up staying until 8:30 because we were having girl talk. It's nice to know that I can talk with these lovely ladies about personal things.

That was my weekend. How was yours?!

5 Things Friday



1. Tomorrow (Saturday) is my great aunt's 50th wedding anniversary celebration! I'm excited to see family that I haven't seen in awhile. :)

2. I went and saw Harry Potter at midnight and it was UH-MAY-ZING!!! I want to go back and see it over and over! It was just that good!

3. Sunday is my friend's bridal shower!! I'm bringing veggies and a fruit tray and of course a gift for the lovely bride!

4. This is my second night in a row staying up until 3AM.

5. As you can tell, my background changed. I liked my pink polka dots, but it didn't fit the theme of storytelling. So I found the current background and I like it a lot!

one:
I’m loving that my cat is a cuddlebug. He only likes to cuddle at night, that’s okay because that’s the only time I have time to cuddle anymore.

two:
I’m loving that Harry Potter 7 part 2 comes out tomorrow night!! I’m going with Love and taking the siblings and I’m really excited!!! (Can you tell?)

I’m loving that tomorrow is my short day at work. On Thursdays the office closes at 1, so we all get the afternoon off!

I’m loving that my friend’s bridal shower is this weekend. Myself and two other girls are hosting and I can’t wait to see how everything turns out!

5 Things Friday



Time for another 5 things!

1. I’m ecstatic that today is Friday!! With it only being a 4 day work week, it felt like it went on a lot longer.
2. I have created a twitter account. You can follow me here!
3. I’m excited to have a girl’s night this weekend! BFF is really stressed so I’m DD and her and I are meeting up with a few people for dinner, drinks and fun!!
4. I really need a new job. I mean, I like how laid back my job is, but I’m bored! I need more excitement! My goal is to become an assistant manager somewhere, but right now that’s not looking so good.
5. I finally got the bird poop off my windshield! It’s been there for a week and a half, and I remembered when I got gas this morning to use the squeegee. Now my windshield is nice and clean!

July 4th

I hope y'all had a great 4th!! I know I did! :)

My holiday consisted of Cornhole, family, great food, bean bag toss, lots of photos, fun, and memories.

Every year, my dad's family gets together a different family member's house for a cookout. Everyone brings a side or dessert, their family bean bag toss game and themselves for a great time.

This year we all just hung out, played Cornhole and Ladder Golf, and just had a great time. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it!! Below are some pictures of the weekend!











What did you do this past weekend? Have fun, I hope? :)

Twitter Update

I've decided on a name, and it's not far from the blog.

By the end of the week, I will have established my Twitter account, and I will post the link here. If I get time tonight I will create it, but I don't see that happening with everything else I have to do tonight.

Also, I had a fabulous holiday weekend! I'm hoping to have pictures posted tonight (it's on my to do list) and a story telling everything that happened! I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed celebrating America's birth!!

Monopoly Update

(If you don't know what I'm talking about, read this post here.)

Sister and Bub finished the game this morning.

Sister owned over half the property on the board, and only a few had houses. Bub owned the rest of the property, most of which had more than one house. Well, on Bub's turn, he landed on Chance, and ended up having to pay to repair his buildings. He was able to pay for it all without selling, or mortgaging, and he still had money left. As the game continued, Sister kept narrowly missing all his property, and it happened for 6 times around the board. Time went on, and Bub kept paying rent, and Sister kept missing property, so they just decided to end the game. Sister ended with $89 million dollars and her properties(we played the Here & Now: World Edition where all the money was in thousands and millions) and Bub ended with $19 million and his properties. So needless to say, Sister won the game.

The list goes as:
1. Stepmom
2. Me
3. Dad
4. Bub
5. Sister

Tonight are the fireworks for here, and tomorrow there are other cities around us having fireworks. The family is going tonight to see fireworks and I'm taking my camera, so hopefully I will get good pictures to show you. :)

I hope everyone has a fabulous Independence Day and enjoys time with family celebrating our independence!

What do you mean Dad is winning? He always wins.

We had a family Monopoly night. It was fun, and kind of early in the game, everyone knew Dad was going to win, like always. As the game goes on, Dad's win becomes more and more apparent: he's buying monopolies, earning rent, buying houses, earning more rent, etc, etc, etc. Love was over and he was just watching all of us and he had us pegged on who was going to go bankrupt 1st, 2nd, and so on.

His original list goes:
1. Bub
2. Me
3. Sister
4. Stepmom
5. Dad

After Love left, we continued our game of course and things took a different turn than expected. Trades started happening and other people were gaining monopolies, buying houses, earning tons of rent, etc. Love's list was wrong.

The actual list:
1. Stepmom - bankrupted by Sister
2. Me - bankrupted by Bub
3. Dad - bankrupted by Bub
4. ?
5. ?

Sister and Bub are battling it out, but the game is on hold until tomorrow. Tonight has been an interesting and fun night, and when Bub and Sister finish the game tomorrow, I will update you on the results. :)
