On the Road Again!!

Hello all!! Happy Monday! I don't know about you, but I am sooo excited to have a long holiday weekend coming up that I can't stand it. Like I said in my last post, I'll be headed to visit my parents on Wednesday with J and we will be relaxing by the pool for the rest of the week. I just love being with family for the 4th of July. When I was younger, my family would usually be on vacation right around this time. It's been a while since our last trip together, so it will be nice to all be in the same spot....minus my lil bro :(

So in honor of my upcoming trip, I've decided to let you in on a few favorites of mine that I will hopefully be able to pack up and take with me!

1.I am most excited about taking this item with me!!! We've made a few trips to FL together before we moved down, but we haven't made the trip to TX together. This will be a first :)

2.I have wanted this swimsuit for at least the last two summers. It is sooo freakin' cute. I love the idea of a mismatched swim suit. I've been doing that for a while now and this suit is perfect. Won't be taking this with me, just the thought of it! Ha! Hopefully after I get a little bit of money saved up from work and the summer season is over, I can find this bad boy on sale!!

3.A little reading material for the plane trip and poolside! Any recommendations on good reads for the summer?

This is going to be such a great little trip, before I start another big girl job! So excited and I can't wait. I have my meeting tomorrow for my drug test and then an A & P exam (again) tomorrow afternoon and then I'm Texas bound! I will be sure to post some pictures while I'm gone of the fun things we get into.

Happy Happy Monday :)

News News News!!

So it has been an amazing last few days. I am happy to announce that I, Meagan Desha, have a JOB!!! You read that right....I GOT THE JOB!! I am soooo excited. All that is left after 4 interviews is a drug test and paperwork. I'm definitely not worried about the d.t. :) My first day is July 6th and I can't wait. Not to go into too much detail, I will be planning events and parties and activities and playing all the time!!! I just can't explain how happy I am.

Also, I got my grades back from my last two anatomy and physiology tests and I'm still on track for an A. It was really hard having two exams in the same week, but it was just preparation for when we have 4 exams in a row. OUCH.

Lastly, I just booked a ticket back to Texas to visit the rents.....AND J is going with me!!! He has been able to visit yet and this will be the first time he'll be meeting my dad. I'm so excited that I'll be spending the holiday weekend with my family before I start my big girl job. I just can't quit smiling!!! :)

Have a great day! And don't forget to swing by my make-up blog and leave me some love over there :) MAKE-UP DESIGN WORK

Dedicated to my Daddy!

I just wanted to wish all you wonderful dads out there a Happy Father's Day and a special hello to my Dad-O a few states to the west! I miss you and wish we could be spending the day by the pool, relaxing! Love you, Daddy!

One of my best friends from home made it down to Florida for a vacation with her husband and a few other friends. I haven't seen her since her wedding in October!!

We enjoyed a peaceful day at the beach in Indian Shores. It was a lot different than the beach I've been going to lately. The beach was gulf-side and the water was wonderful!

We saw a few of these....freaked me out, but I got over it.

Needed a little of this....

But I had a great time! Makes me miss Kentucky that much more, but also makes me feel privileged to live so close to the favorite place to relax :) Where's your favorite place to kick back and relax?

And the wait continues...

So I told a fib.....but it wasn't really my fault. Yesterday I told you I would know about my job today....well, didn't work out that way. I had my final interview today where I presented my information and ideas on how I could help the company and received a tour of the facility, but got nothing in regards to actually being offered the position. I was meeting with the director of the facility and thought I was going to be told either way today, but disappointingly enough, I'm still waiting. The director said a decision has to be made by next week, so tack another week on to two months I've already been waiting. Geeze! :( No big deal. I hope its worth it.

Now I'm on to studying every free moment I have until next Thursday night. For some reason my A & P professor decided to give us two tests and two quizzes in one week! Eek. But before I start, J and I are going to soak up some sun in the back yard for about an hour, not because its fun or anything, but because I need my Vitamin D! ha ha! Yeah right!

By the way, did anyone watch the Magic/Lakers game last night? Did you see the poor woman that fell out of her seat and got stuck on national television? It was the last 11 seconds of the game and the announcers were talking about the game....little blonde woman in the background thought it would be fun to get in the picture and completely falls out of her seat! WOW! I can't find it on youtube, but if I do, you'll definitely see it! I shouldn't laugh, but man. Classic!

Preparation and Packages!

Such a great day! I have been finalizing a few things for my final interview tomorrow and I am so excited. A little nervous, but excited! By this time tomorrow, I will know if I will have a job or not. I'm hoping its the previous.

and I drove by the brand new facility I could possibly be working at yesterday and it almost cost us our lives!!! Well, I could be exaggerating a little bit. But the facility is located right next to a very small private college and I'm guessing someone was late for class, but the car driving behind us decided to zoom around us and clip us off! I'm pretty sure if the car was going any faster, the duct tape and bungee cords would fly off and the car would fall apart. Seriously, there was no one else on the road but us two, but he just about took out the whole front driver's side panel. I was fumed....and I was driving. So what did I do....the road rage kicked in and mama went after the sucker. I followed him right into the college parking lot and around the whole building and as I'm driving, J said, "So what are you gonna do when he parks?" HA HA!

My response......GET HIS LICENSE PLATE NUMBER! I don't know what I was thinking. I'm pretty sure I wasn't thinking...I was mad! Oh well...what can ya do.

Next up....I got a little package in the mail today! I was so excited. Ms. Angela at Sweet Tea Diaries sent me the cutest picture frame!! Thanks Angela! I loved the stationary you used for the card. Where did you find it?

Can't wait to put this bad boy in a new apartment!! Thanks again Sweet Tea!

I got a call today to set up the final interview with the company I've been talking about for months now!!! I am sooo excited. Things are looking really good and this girl could possibly have a job by the beginning of next week!! I've put together a presentation for my interview in hopes to impress the boss man.

Wish me luck!

Get it!

So I saw this the other day, thanks to Mrs. Watermelon Tree and I couldn't help but fall in love! Two of my favorite things in one video....dancing and athletic pants!! Enjoy...great way to start off the day :)

I miss my long hair!!!

Its official....I want my hair back. But I'm pretty sure its already been sewn into about 7 wigs....hey, I have a lot of hair. BUT I WANT IT BACK.... :( The donation was for a great cause, and I wouldn't change it for the world, but how long is it going to take to grow back??

With my old roomie....called my hair "my drapes"!

My pigtails were so easy....I need them!
My curls were fun too!!

And then there was the half up, half down...with a little teasing!

And then my purple and red highlights! Oh man! Don't mind the stupid expression.
**Edit...These aren't really highlights. I had colored extensions put in because I was too chicken to color my hair. I've never colored/highlighted my hair for real! :(

no curls = tears ;(

Maybe by the time I grow my hair out I can lose some weight and look better! Arg!

Whirlwind of a Weekend!

Hi folks! I hope you all are enjoying the last day of your weekend.....I'm kinda sad that it's almost over because it has been such a great adventure! A lot has happened since the last time I posted so I'm going to update you a little bit....

I finally heard back from the job I've been interviewing for last Wednesday to let me know I'm still the top candidate for the position and I'll be getting a call to schedule a final I'm keeping my fingers crossed and praying that this is where God wants me to be. I'm trying to keep my spirits up about not having a job, knowing God has a position just waiting, but its getting tough.

J also received a call from HR to let him know he was being offered a conditional job offer pending his final interview!!! So excited for this news!! He's finally gotten a break and it was for something that he really wanted. Things for him are starting to look up :)

Later in the week, I saw that the job I have been interviewing was re-posted on the Internet and it kinda bummed me out. I wish I could just find out either way. I know I need to be patient, but I do my best to be professional and prepared for my interviews, and I would like the common courtesy of professionalism from my interviewers. Have any of you had experience with unprofessional potential employers?

Other than the job thing.....J and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary!! It's very hard for me to believe that we have been dating for a year already. When we met, it was almost instant that we knew we would be together for a long time :) J still doesn't believe me that I was the first one to try and make a move when we first met.

For our anniversary, we acted like little kids! J and I went to an arcade and played the day away while it poured and poured outside. We weren't going to let the rain spoil our day! All the games were old school arcade games that we love!

I apologize for the mess I was!! It was raining outside.

My favorite game!!

Had a little trouble....the machine tried to eat my tickets!

Enjoying some great greasy (not healthy at all) food. I promise I will be back on my diet soon. I have to!!!

You have to have dessert....And a few more games to top it all off!

After the arcade and lunch we headed home to get ready for a movie. I took J to see....

And gave him this....

And made him this...
Not the best picture...but I took a post-it pad and wrote a reason why I love him on every page :)

We had such a great time. It reminded me how much I love him and how excited I am to spend the rest of my life with my best friend!! God has blessed me in so many ways.

This weekend was also J's nephew's pre-school graduation....

T-Man is third from the right. He looked sooo cute in his little khaki's and button-up with the sleeves rolled up. His momma sure knows how to dress him!!

T-Man's little sister saying a prayer with Grandma and Pop Pop.

J with his niece, Em Em.

It was such a blessed week! I hope every one's week was just as great as mine!
