1.   If I could get away somewhere for the weekend I would go       Hawaii, haha. Or somewhere tropical   .

2.  Something I often rant about is    how customers are already at work when you pull in early for the day, then they get out of their car and follow you to the door when you are unlocking it. Makes me SO mad. I still have things to do before I open the dang door for people. Ugh  .

3.  One item I need to have in my fridge at all time is     Jalepeno Cilantro Hummus from Publix. It is UH-mazing   .

4.  My "life-saving" product is   dry shampoo. It is my friend  .

5.  A friend is someone who     knows just about everything about you...and loves you anyway  .

6.  If I could write my own blank it would be       Oh gosh I don't know! Hahaha   .

7.  My favorite kind of art is       photography of course. And yes, it's an art  .

Wee Bit Wednesday on Thursday

{one} what’s the worst date you’ve ever been on?
I don't really think I've ever been on a terrible date?

{two} if you could be any other person for one day, who would it be?
Hmm...I think I like being myself.

{three} what is your favorite kind of cheese?
I love mozzarella cheese. And pepper jack, and feta, oh what the heck. I just love cheese.

{four} do you remember your 1st grade teacher?
Yep. Her name was Mrs. Ingram. I later cheered with her daughter in high school.

{five} who is the first person you call when you have a bad day?
My husband. :)

{six} were you ever in a school talent show?
Yep. Once, and it was the lamest thing ever. Me and a few other girls lip-sang (sp?) "My Heart Will Go On" wearing jeans and red turtle necks, holding a single rose. So lame. Lol.

{seven} who is your favorite fictional character?
That's a good question.

{eight} can you open your eyes underwater?
Yes, but they always burn afterwards.

{nine} do you look at the keyboard when you type?
Nope. I can type without looking!

{ten} when was the last time you took a nap?
Yesterday, and it was an AMAZING nap.

Have a great day! :)

Meet Brooks

My brother's new chocolate lab puppy. Isn't he adorable? He brought him home last week, and he came over to meet my pups. They were so cute playing together. :)

To see more pictures of Brooks, head on over to my photography blog.

There aren't many things in the world cuter than a six week old puppy right? So cute. He was so squishy, and cuddly, and I didn't want him to leave. Next time I see him he will be a lot bigger I'm sure!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

1.   People always tell me I look like  _ the girl from Lady Antebellum. I don't know   .

2.  Friends don't let friends    walk around looking like idiots, whether it be something in your teeth, wearing something completely unflattering, or with a massive boogie (hehe) hanging out  .

3.  A sunny day is perfect for     sitting on the back porch reading a book, or laying out by the pool   .

4.  My favorite accessory is   my long heart locket necklace. I wear it all the time  .

5.  If I could afford it I would     have a personal trainer/chef who could make me skinny. Haha  .

6.  The cure for boredom is  __exercising. It's a good solution to that problem   .

7.  I am currently "in like" with  __Greek yogurt. I just recently tried it and am actually "in love" with it    .
Oh, and HEY! Don't forget to enter in my giveaway here! :)

1. Graduation.
This past week, Ian's brother Brandon graduated college. I took half the day off at work to go eat with the family, since they drove down from different places, and the graduation was in the evening. Lunch was great, and after graduation we went back to Brandon & Joanna's apartment for homemade ice cream! Yum.

2. Cute pup pics.
I was able to sneak some really cute pictures of the pups this past week too. They just melt me. Oh, and I have to give Ian credit for the middle picture. :)

3. Looks can be deceiving.
Ian and I were craving something terrible for us this weekend, so we decided to try out a little scrambled dog place in town. We have driven by this place so many times...but never stopped. Needless to say, it was delicious, and the atmosphere was awesome.

4. Food, food, & more food.
These are just a few of my delicious meals/desserts from this past week/weekend. The first one is my famous salad that I make pretty much every day for lunch. Romaine lettuce, green olives, sunflower seeds, craisins, strawberries, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and a pinch of sugar. The middle picture is of one of the best pieces of chocolate cake I have ever had. It is called "Chocolate Lovin' Spoonfuls," and was given to us by our friends Brett & Kate (for Brett's birthday). Unbelievable. The third picture is of a meal I had at Olive Garden. I don't remember the name of it, but I will be ordering it again. :)

5. Bridesmaid!
Yep! My friend Crystal asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding next year, and I am so excited! She dropped off the cutest little card to me at work, in which she made herself. She's so creative! The other pictures are of two cute little rottweiler puppies at work the other day, and some pretty flowers.

I hope you all have a wonderful day! And don't forget to link up over at Carissa's!

{one} what profession have you always admired?
Teachers. They don't get paid a lot, but their job is one of the most important in my opinion. Teachers, you ROCK!

{two} what would the title of your memoir/biography be if it was written today?
"Where do I Start?" Haha.

{three} how far do you commute to work?
Literally, 2 minutes, if that. :)

{four} are your earlobes attached or detached?

{five} do you eat the unpopped kernels of popcorn at the bottom of the bag?

{six} what is the strangest gift you’ve ever received?
Hmm...two Christmases ago, my family played dirty santa, and the gift I ended up with was a massive container of Raisinets, and a jumbo pack of Tums. Yep.

{seven} what is one tv show that you wish hadn’t been cancelled?
Flash Forward. I loved that show and don't know why they cancelled it!

{eight} what is something that you are saving money for right now?
Nothing in particular.

{nine} what hobby would you like to take up?
Sewing. I have a sewing machine but have NO idea how to use it!

{ten} how many times a year do you get really dressed up?
Good question. Not sure.
