Sorry my posts have been lacking lately, everyone!
Since Friday, I’ve been working everyday day at my aunts booth at a 4h horse show. It’s long days, but I’m glad I was able to help out. The really happy part was that on Friday night Emily picked me up early and we watched Wives & Daughters with Hannah & Jessie! The only bad part was that I didn’t get to bed until late and I was really tired the next day! But, it was worth having a girls night.

Anywho, tomorrow is my first driving lesson and a orthodontist appointment. Then I have a dentist appointment on Tuesday. Doesn’t sound like a very fun start to the week, but let’s hope it’ll only get better from there! This next Friday I go back to work at the same place for a champ show. Then, Saturday, is my aunt & uncles Fall festival! I’m thinking this weekend is going to be really good. :) 
I’m currently relaxing, listening to Adele & enjoying not being on my feet. I’m going to bed early tonight, and whenever I wake up, it’ll feel like sleeping in after getting up at 6 or 5:45 am… I never thought I’d say I was looking forward to Monday, ha ha:)

Oh, & tonight when we walked in the door, my dad called us to the tv where there was the 60 Minutes interview with Dakota Meyer who won the Metal of Honor. It was so interesting to watch, I’m so thankful for our service men & women who are serving our country.

Oh, and today, (I keep saying that!) I had this mustache on my finger (see photo) and this girl who was at the register (as I was ringing up her purchase) asked me if I would pose with my mustache for a photo! I was a little taken aback, but I figured, what the heck, so I said sure. I didn’t get to see how it turned out, I hope it looks alright!

Have a great week, lovelies!

Our family went up to our cabin for Labor Day weekend. My dad, brother, aunt, uncle & my other uncle all went up on Friday. My mom, Emily & I went up on Saturday. Friday night we had a fab girls night. We met up with Emily after school finished for the day and went out to dinner at Panera & then later we watched this show called Northern Exposure. (So funny!) Anywho, the weekend at the cabin was nice and relaxing. Much needed naps were in order. :) We drove home on Monday and I “modeled” for Emily for a photography project she had when we got home. Now, it’s back to school. I’m really thankful for that extra day off, though. 


Isn’t she something else? She’s always on high alert for danger (squirrels are on the top of the list)

Happy Tuesday!

Today is my cousins birthday -she would've been 23. Sam was only 15 when she was killed in a car crash, but she always seemed so old to me. I wanted to be just like her, and I still do. I still miss her so much it hurts.

But, this isn’t the end. I’ll see her again, I know that -but it’s still hard. For now, I’m going to focus on the life and loved ones I have, because life is precious.

We were all in my aunts wedding. :)

Happy Thursday, friends.
