Our camping trip may not happen......
Unless the sun decides to shine!
And go on bike rides.....
I'll be sad if I don't get to go....
Because this will be my last time!
Pray for the rain to stop because we want to go! :) This is my very last camping trip before I move in two weeks :( I will be hiatus this weekend unless the trip is a no-go! :) Happy Friday everyone!

I did not over indulge myself to smores, steak, hot dogs, soda, popcorn, boiled peanuts and lots of other yummy snacks with the kiddos this weekend while camping! Not me! That would make me a baby hog!!!
I did not get soaken wet on Friday night in my water proof tent!!
I did not freeze my butt off on Saturday night because the temperature outside was in the low 50's!! hehe...good thing I did not have a cuddly little girl to sleep with :)
I did not wash my hair with body wash on Saturday because I did not bring shampoo!
I did not refuse to take a shower on Sunday because I didn't feel like it...ooops...not me!
I did not order my Chic Fil A Vanilla milkshake without whip cream so that they could fit it into a regular cup so that the 4 kids who were with me wouldn't ask for one!
I did not get super excited last night when the Rays won their spot in the World Series and when Tampa Bay Bucs beat the Seahawks! Yahooooo!!!
I did not cry alot today :(
I did not ignore my unresonably dirty bedroom when I got home today and ignore the fact that it needs to be cleaned NOW!
I did not leave work early today because I was having a bad day :(
I did not put my two weeks notice in at work today :(
I did not cry on the phone to my daddy today because I am so scared about moving and about all of the changes I am about to make!
I did not finish my thank you cards that really need to go out!!! hehe.....I really didnt finish them and it's bothering me.
I did not have another fun filled weekend with my family this weekend :) What am I going to do without them?!?!
Ahhh life is so hard sometimes! I need some more strength God! Please take care of me! :)

1. I have an obsession with bacon. Totally random right? Probably not, but the funny thing behind this is that about 6 or 7 years ago I got sick off of one of those cheese hotdogs and I swore to myself that I would never eat hotdogs, bacon, ham, pork, sausage again. Then, one day, I smelled a hotdog, wanted one and started to eat all of those things again. Now I am obsessed. I love BLTs; I love microwavable bacon; I love bacon with my pancakes and I could probably eat it everyday and not get sick of it. Weird I know.....
2. I want 4 or 5 kids. I love kids. My favorite age is when they're really little. Probably from newborn until about 6ish. After that they don't want to be held anymore and they want to do everything themselves. I want 4 or 5. Not all at once though. I don't know how mommas of multiples do it! I have so much respect for them. But, if that's what God has planned for me, then that's what David and I will do. I would like to have my children about 2 or 3 years apart but we will just have to see what God has planned for us!! :) We'll take whatever we can get!
3. I sometimes wish that I had the guts to be a doctor. Too bad this will never happen. If I could be a doctor, I would probably be a heart surgeon or a pediatrician. I can't ever imagine having someone else's life in my hands (other than my children). I wouldn't be able to handle it if they didn't make it for whatever reason. Being a doctor is just not for me. On the other side, I'm done with school. I got my B.S. and so I'm done. Not a big fan.
4. I'm addicted to blogging. I love blogging. I haven't been doing is very long but it is so much fun. There is such a big world out there full of fun people. I have about 40 or so blogs that I read daily and I honestly only know about 5 or 6 of them in real life. I'm not even sure how I came across most of them but I'm glad that I did. They're fun and I enjoy reading them everyday.....even if that makes me a little stalkerish...oh come on!! We all do it!! haha ;)
5. I can't stand it when someone pops their gum. It drives me NUTS! You know that one thing that a person can do that'll drive you insane? Yup that's it for me. You can scream, holler, even punch me, but PLEASE PLEASE don't pop your gum around me!
6. I played lacrosse and tennis in high school. I was much much better at lacrosse than I was tennis. I wish I still played. Boy did it keep you in shape! I'm actually in pretty good shape right now I must say (thanks to running) but I miss the good ol' high school days of lacrosse. I would play doubles in tennis and I could never really control the power of my hit. My balls would go out and sometimes even over the fence! Lacrosse, on the other hand, I was the #1 scorer on my team. Once I got the ball, I was gone.......I miss it alot.
7. I am deathly afraid of snakes! Enough said!
My Big Sister Brandy
My awesome cousin April
Momma of a whole lotta kids
Deanna at Eight is Great!
Have fun!!! ;)

Today is Not Me Monday again! Every week hosted over at MckMama’s blog! Check it out and join in on the fun. It’s very therapeutic!
I did not write this at work AGAIN! LOL…nope not me….
I did not take a piece of the cake with white icing this weekend so that my teeth would not turn black from the black icing like everyone else’s did. I guess there is an advantage to being the cake cutter! HAHA
I did not stay out until 2am on Saturday night bowling with about 15 of my family (including mom and dad) and friends! Nope not me :)
I did not go out in the rain last night to purchase 40 thank you cards because I need to get them out ASAP!
I did not pay $25 to have my polka dot dress re-fitted after losing weight only to have it not fit me again this weekend…..
I did not gloat to my friend Angela because Tampa Bay kicked butt yesterday against the Carolina Panthers….27 to 3….Go Bucs!
I did not decide to lay around all day yesterday watching football and eating Doritos, fried fish and a huge Otis Spunkmeyer Chocolate Chip muffin (which I could not finished by the way).
I did not decide after watching football and eating junk that going for a run on a rainy Sunday would be a bad thing to do! Nope not me…no way!
I did not make smart comments within earshot to the “nice and slow” lady who did the kids face painting at the Festival this weekend….talk about super slow….my lord…..I knew the other line would have been better!!!
I did not pile all of my wedding gifts into my room this weekend because I wanted to watch football instead of organize my room!
I did not watch episodes of Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice on-line because I didn't feel like watching the commercials!
I did not get any duplicates at my bridal shower this weekend…..because Target is just a lovely and stress free place to shop! Blah!
I did not cry when my mom gave me her beautiful orange glass dish that has been in the family for decades at my bridal shower! *tear*
I do not wish that I had another piece of my bridal shower cake in my possession! Ugh!
I am not going for a run today!
I did not have a really emotional weekend because I started thinking about how freaking bad I am going to miss everyone in my life when I move :(
I did not thoroughly enjoy my fun-filled with family, friends and fun weekend!! Not me!
I do not absolutely adore my friends and family for making my life so special all the time in anyway that they can. I LOVE them all so much!
***Another post coming today with pictures to recap my lovely weekend :)***

I chose the "When I'm Upset" prompt because of the day I'm having....hehe....how funny! Maybe this will help me feel better! Hope so!
When I'm upset.....
I am quiet. I usually keep to myself and think constantly about what it is that is bothering me.
I bite my nails and stare off into space, again thinking about what it is that is bothering me.
I have a very hard time focusing my attention on other, probably more important things, such as working, driving, etc. (hehe)
I don't like people to ask me what is wrong. This really drives me insane. Sometimes people just have a bad day and it's nice to know that people care but me personally, I would rather have someone encourage me and cheer me up rather than ask me what is wrong. It's hard, especially at work, being around so many people and everyone knows something is wrong when I'm not my usually perky, bubbly, loud self!
I like to clean things.
I like to eat.....E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! Speaking of eating...I just had some popcorn. At least it was the 98% fat free smart pop popcorn :)
I like to run. I can always count on running to help improve my mood. I haven't been but one time in the last week and it's killing me. I am looking forward to my run today....especially today. I can guarantee that this is the one thing that will help chear me up today...oh yeah and the fact that GREY'S ANATOMY is coming on at 9pm tonight on ABC! Watch it! Love it! :)
I like to cry. Crying, believe it or not, helps me feel better too when I'm upset. I did a little bit of that today and that's probably why I feel ok right now...still not 100% but improving.
Well I think I'm done now...this post is probably the most boring, sad and depressing post ever but it helped a little bit. Come on 4:30!
I got a pretty busy weekend ahead. I have my bridal shower #2 on Saturday! I am super excited. I know nothing about it...my best friend/maid of honor is throwing it for me with the help of my momma and some other bridesmaids. I'm sure it'll be alot of fun. Crystal is very talented and she's a great party planner! :)
I have plans to go to a Fall Festival and the Pumpkin Patch....but those may not follow through. We will see. I am also planning to go out with some friends on Saturday night maybe for dinner and a movie or maybe to do something "scary" and Halloween related!
I'm glad tomorrow is Friday......maybe I'll chear up as the day goes on. I sure hope so because feeling like this is not fun at all.
I miss you David :(

Ok so I totally have my days mixed up because of my trip and I thought today was Monday, but I was wrong, and today is Tuesday! I am going to do a double post today because Monday and Tuesday are my favorite days to blog! The first thing I am going to post about is "Not Me Mondays!" in honor of MckMama. She started this fun game a couple of weeks ago. I'm sad that I missed it yesterday so I am going to post it anyway. I hope you all still enjoy reading about the things that I DID NOT do this week!! haha....so here goes!
*I did not eat an entire bag of gummy worms and drink an entire sugar free red bull, yes sugar free, on my drive home yesterday because I was so sleepy! Nope NOT ME!
*I did not call, first the GA highway patrol, and second the SC highway patrol on my way home from Tampa yesterday because there was a family driving next to me that had an 8 month old in the front seat with 2 other toddlers in the back seat with no child restraints anywhere to be found in the car!!! Ok so I really did do this and it really pisses me off the lack of concern and low regard that some people have for their children! Unbelievable! It's ok....the state trooper got them good! On top of all that the guy was driving about 90+ mph when he came around the bend where the trooper was.....let's just say I laughed as I drove by......pathetic.
*I did not forget that my car payment is due in two days and I have not mailed my check yet!!
*I did not get excited over the weekend because I now wear a size 10 pants!!!! YAY!!! :)
*I did not get lost on my way home yesterday because I completely missed the exit I knew was the right one! haha
*I did not fail to unpack my suitcase last night because I was ready to pass out!
*I did not give a cute firefighter my best friend's phone number last night because she thought he was cute and he was flirting with her! Nope, not me!
*I did not post this at work again!
*I did not just totally PIG OUT on a mini smart pop bag of popcorn and a Diet Coke! Yum!
*I did not just realize that I am moving my stuff to Tampa in 3 weeks!!
*I did not just realize that I am getting married in 4 weeks!!
*I did not just completely stress myself out by remembering E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G that needs to be done in the next 3 weeks....Oh My Gosh!
*I did not do any of these!! Nope! hehe ;)

We went and looked at the house today and it was beautiful! David's dad completely gutted the whole house and redid everything; completely remodeled kitchen, bathroom, paint, carpet, ceramic tile, appliances, etc. It's like walking into a brand new home :) We are so very blessed and lucky that his parents have offered for us to rent from them. It is a very beautiful home and we cannot wait to live in it and make it the "Schafer Home." Ahhhh!!!! I am so excited about my life right now!!! I just can't explain how happy David and I are! :) :) :)
I hope to hear back from my interview soon! I may be coming back to Tampa before the wedding to interview again. Please pray for me! This job is for a company called General Dynamics (they're huge) and it would be a GREAT opportunity for my career! I already have an advantage because of my previous government contract experience so we will see!!
I am going to go finish the Tampa Bay game.....I think they're about to lose. It's ok though....I have officially declared myself as a fan and I will be faithful and love them no matter what! HAHA....
We are going to go to dinner now! :) BYE!

Hey everyone! Well I made it to Tampa. My first road trip alone! It took me right around 7 hours to drive from Charleston to Tampa. Not too bad....there was hardly any traffic and the weather was perfect (blue sky all the way). Hopefully the ride home Monday will be the same. I got really sleepy towards the end of the trip, but I'm glad that I made it here safely.
Well tomorrow I have my interview! Wish me luck! It's for a great position and I'm super nervous. I have to leave at 8am to get to the interview by 10am. That is how crazy the traffic is around here! I am in for such a HUGE change of pace.....I'm so use to my small town traffic.....lordy...WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?! hehe
Well I must run on to bed now...David is working the night shift tonight :( I will post again tomorrow! Night everyone :) Please say a prayer for me....oh yeah and for David....his knees have been hurting him so bad lately when he works.
