Growing Up!

Oh goodness, life is starting to hit me.
Over the summer I moved home to work as a nanny to save up some money because I am moving into a new apartment for college in the fall. 
Heading back to my beautiful town of Auburn, I have a lot of responsibilities that I'm not used to having. First off, I got me a big girl job, I'm so excited to start working at the Loft. I'm bringing my precious baby girl (@Maggietheshihtzu) back to college with me after not having her for two years. I got accepted into my major so Ill be back in my studios working till sun up on projects. And trying to balance life. 
A lot of change between a new place, job, classes, etc... But Im super excited about it and can't wait.

Seeing Things Through Clear Eyes!

I think its safe to say that people are blind, we can be blind in so many ways. Today it is almost like people prefer to be blind than to see things as they truly are. Our blindness is used in almost every aspect of our lives, its in our work, marriages, relationships, family, school, religion, economy, and world.  The reason we prefer to be blind is because it seems life would be much easier if we ignore all of the problems happening right in front of us. I know I am like this but lately my eyes have been open to things I never thought I'd see.  

I think its important for everyone to start seeing the truth, if we do this we really can grow in our relationships, work, etc... It may not be fun or easy, but its worth the work if at the end of the day we are seeing things truly as they are. 

Being blind can not only hurt you but hurt others as well. So put on those glasses or pop in those contacts and start seeing things through clear eyes!

DIY Smoothie?

So I was nannying over the summer for two boys... I know bless my heart. Anyways we often got bored and tried to think about fun things to do. One day the youngest of the two asked if we could make smoothies. I had never made one before and neither had he. So we went into the kitchen to see what we could use to make one... going by no recipe heres how it went.

We used pineapples, strawberries, milk, lemon juice, honey, milk, and yogurt.

 We blended it all together with ice.

And it was shockingly good!

Day at the Pool

Im dreading the fact that summer is coming to an end, yet excited to be back in my beautiful Auburn. One thing ill miss most are days like these, my cousin invited me to go with her to a pool downtown at a hotel. The pool is on the roof of the  hotel so you get to enjoy the beautiful view surrounding you.  We had so much fun giggling like little children, its days like this I won't forget.

Being Accepted

So at Auburn University for the major Interior Design your freshman year you take two studio classes then apply for the major after your freshman year. Its extremely competitive and hard to get accepted.... Not knowing this I started my first two years at a small community college then transferred, thinking that I would be ahead I find out that I am technically a freshman still and have four more years WHOO....(sarcasm) However I have swallowed this harsh reality and finished my first year at Auburn. I had to make a portfolio of all of my work and turn it in to the board. After a month of panicking and not knowing what to do if I didn't get accepted I got the email...

Good News!
