Snow Days

How I spent my snow days, via pictures from instagram.

Set this old school bad boy up. Beat my dad in the race.

Helped my dad rearrange the basement

Ate pizza hut! Best pizza ever, yummy. 

Lounged around and watched t.v.

Helped dad set up the new t.v. in the basement

Ate leftover queso from a local restaurant. 

cleaned out some cabinets in the kitchen. Found these beauties. 

Overall with both of the major snow storms we had in less than a week we totaled about just shy of TWO FEET of snow. Whew. 

Lots of shoveling was done....let's just say I won't be doing that again. I went to the chiropractor last night....and the Dr. had to realign my shoulder blades/spine. Lots of cracking was done.

Aftermath Snowmaggedon 2

The first snow storm we had was different snow, this time it's more "wet" and "heavy". Thousands of people around the KC metro are with out power. We've gotten about 10 inches or more of snow with a bit more coming our way.

Please pray that the emergency workers, snow removal workers, news crews, and that everyone that has to be out and about stay safe and warm. Also please pray that more people don't lose power. We are unable to leave our homes and snow is blowing everywhere.

Major highways are closed. Lots of accidents being reported. There is a report of a fallen power line catching on fire.

I hate winter. But must trust in God that he will take care of us, and should not fear.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Snowmaggedon Part 2

Round two of a major snow storm is going to hit the KC area Monday/Tuesday. BLAH. We do NOT need another 12 inches + of snow. One foot was already enough.
Luckily I planned ahead and took off work monday-wednesday....but I have some job interviews. So hopefully those won't have to be moved again.

Prayers that the power doesn't go out and that we get through round two.

SO MUCH SNOW. It's the worst snow storm in two years for KC.

We have had 6 inches so far. Expected to get 5-8 more. The snow won't let up until 4 am.
Let's just say all schools are closed, most businesses, and visibility is non existent.

My work is closed, and that never happens. Funny thing I asked my boss Tuesday if he thought we might close down today....and said no. Low and behold all three stores are closed.
Blizzard like conditions here.

My shay puppy loves the snow, went out and jumped in it....but hates rain. She is really goofy. Sorry no pictures of that yet.

Prayers that it doesn't get too much worse. That my daddy makes it home okay. And that the power doesn't go out.

Guess who has a job interview for Friday.....this girl. :) Positive thoughts please.

Edit: I have two lined up for Monday. :) SO BLESSED.

Job Hunting

As a recent college graduate I have been applying for full time jobs ever since graduation. (12/14/12)
I've been applying online to places. My inboxes for my email addresses are filled with automated replies from companies and emails from my mother, who sends me save search results from different job sites.
I am in need of a full time job, and it has to have benefits. Once said job is obtained....I will slowly be cut off from my parents financially. Oh and in June I HAVE to start paying off my student loans. Did I mention I have no clue who I will be paying my loans back to? Still waiting to be contacted by the loan company.
So finally finding a job that pays more than what I make now at my part time job is really important.
And I refuse to go full time where I am at now....too many hours, for too little pay, and no benefits.

How I feel that I have yet to get a job. I have had a few interviews....that haven't worked out due to weird circumstances.

Someone PLEASE hire me. :)

Our First

It was our first valentine's day together and it was a great night!I loved every minute of it...including the few hiccups. I can't wait to spend more holidays with him. :)

Remember that coupon book I put together last minute for part of Andrew's gift yesterday? Well he said that was his FAVORITE part of the whole gift basket. He also happened to crack up at the beer that I got him. Basically he LOVED all parts of his gift. :)

I loved mine too, he did really well. I received a dozen red roses, a big box of Godiva chocolates filled with caramel-my favorite, and a pair of red nike tempo shorts that have a Jayhawk on them. All things I wanted. Best valentines gifts to date. And the company was the best yet. :D

We exchanged gifts before dinner, and then made it to our reservation ON TIME thankfully at Buca Di Beppo. It was really yummy and kind of expensive. Luckily though we had a coupon. Andrew got upset b/c his chicken parmesan didn't come with pasta like we thought it would and he was paying $20 for two pieces of upset, complained, and they comped him some spaghetti pasta. Other than that dinner went well.

After dinner we watched The Notebook, it was his first time seeing it. Let's just say that he got bored with it and didn't like it nearly as much as the other Nicholas Sparks movies he has seen.

Here is to him hopefully being my last ever valentine. <3
I will leave you with some pictures of our night. (Can you believe I remembered to document?!)

What did you do for valentine's day?

My cover photo for my fb profile. Not made by me...borrowed it from a friend. 

My awesome gifts. :)

Andrew and I at dinner. 

Me and the gifts he thoughtfully got. 

Andrew's gift basket. 
Filled with American Reunion on blu ray. A new xbox head set, shiner bock beer, four leaf clover boxers, spicy nacho doritos, strawberry frosted pop tarts, a mc d's gift card for his dr. pepper addiction, and the coupon booklet! Whew. I am super happy he loved it all.

My Sweet Valentine

So I had Andrew's gift basket all planned out...and decided last minute to print off a coupon booklet that is customized for him. I found it Here ! It was FREE to print out and the coupon booklet is a super easy and fun personalized gift for your loved one. :) Plus how cute are those hearts?!
Now I shall leave you with a few Valentine pinterest pictures.
Happy Valentine's Day! May you be able to spend it with those you love. <3

What are your plans for today? Or how do you celebrate?

21 & Over

Accidentally wound up seeing this movie last night. I got my dates wrong and didn't pay attention to the date on the Safe Haven movie tickets. Seeing it tonight instead. But last night Andrew and I lucked out....there was an advanced screening of the movie 21 & Over ! It is written by the same people who wrote The Hangover. 
It's a stupidly laugh your ass off movie, I highly recommend it. It might be one to see matinee or on dvd, but it was good. We were glad we got to accidentally go for free. The advanced screening folks said our tickets for Safe Haven were for tomorrow night, and I felt so stupid, oops. But they were kind enough to allow us to see 21 & Over. Luckily for us the theatre wasn't full, so we got to go in. 
I happend to run into two fellow Delta Zeta's that were seeing it as well! Andrew and I sat next to them,  and I hadn't seen them in a while, so it was good to chit chat before the movie started. 
GO see this movie once it comes out in March. :)

Yoga Pants!

Love me some Victoria's Secret PINK yoga pants!
I purchased these for only $17.60!

I won this for getting A's on some projects/tests/papers. My chapter of DZ held a smarty panties raffle contest. If you got an A on something you could enter to win the gift card. Myself and another senior won $15 each to V.S. :)

Now I bet you are wondering how I managed to get those cropped yoga pants for only $17.60!?! Well V.S. has a special currently running in stores, ALL yoga pants are $30 in store only!! I suggest you run, not walk to your nearest one and snatch a pair up. 

With the gift card I won being worth 15, my total with tax came to the price listed above. Not too shabby if you ask me. The pair I bought started out originally at $40! 

Have you gotten any good deals lately? Do you like V.S. yoga pants?

From Tumblr.

I had a job interview today with a company. Well turns out due to budget cuts and a hiring freeze they had to cancel my interview. I didn't get that email on my phone until I was already at the office, checked in and waiting for them to come get me for the interview....yeah. And they said they called and left a voice mail, I got neither. 
But the lady was kind enough to still meet with me, like a mini interview. She said she would keep my resume on hand and let me know when the freeze was lifted. 
All in all I was glad I got the experience, hope to hear from them soon and ON TO THE NEXT ONE.
