I went on a limb the other day and decided to chop my hair off. There is a hair dresser here at Concord (I am visiting Michael for a couple of days) that I really like so I knew I wanted to go ahead and get it cut. I decided if I am paying for my hair I might as well get something extreme! After my hair dresser cut my hair she said I looked SASSY and that she gave me permission to have all the attitude I want..and believe me I have! :)

Raleigh, Wisdom Teeth, and July

Happy July everyone! I am sitting here on my couch with soar holes in my gums. I got out all four of my wisdom teeth yesterday morning and it really was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. As soon as they put the IV in my arm I was out and literally did not wake up until the very end..and man did i feel goofy for the rest of the day. The pain is really not that bad I take a painkiller every once in awhile. Only my bottom right "tooth" aka hole in my gum hurts.
Also I went to the doctor Monday morning about my swollen lymph nodes on the back of my neck. All of my blood tests came back negative yayy! Which means i don't have anemia, leukemia, and all my kidney and lungs are working great. She just told me I have a reactive lymph node and sometimes you can't really explain why they happen. But they are pretty much gone now I can hardly feel them on my neck anymore!!
I will be in Raleigh for a couple of weeks and then I go back to Greenville to work and such..:-\. I like it so much better here.
I hope everyone has a great fourth of July I will be up in Ohio for a family reunion :)

I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired!

So I don't know if any of you heard but I had a knot on the back of my neck for about two months now. And it didn't really bother me until this past week. I was dizzy, getting headaches, nauseated when I ate food, really I decided to get it checked out! Well my doctor told me it was a swollen lymph node which could be a number of could be just a bacterial infection or it could be a blood disease..meaning I don't have enough white blood cells. She told me that I have nothing to worry about and it is not as uncommon as I think it is. So I got blood work done..they tested me for like four different things..which i don't even what. If it is anything serious they will call me after they get results... if not i have a follow up doctors appointment on the 29th! But I don't feel well.. I can go along with the day but I don't have the energy that most people have. I slept A LOT yesterday..took nap for 2 hours and then went to bed 2 hours later and slept for 10 hours..and I am STILL tired. My head hurts, my body aches, I feel uncomfortable. I just feel like i am ALWAYS sick..and I am tired of it..literally.

Please pray that my blood work results will come in and it will be nothing serious..something that can be an easy fix.. because I am ready to feel 100% like myself again!

7 reasons to say "I do"

I am still listening to the study of Ruth that my pastor has on has only taken me since December haha! But today was talking about the qualities to have in a spouse.. but not only do I want these qualities in a spouse I want them for myself! so here we go 7 reasons to say I do:

1. Spirtuality- loving God and God always being on our lips!
2. Humility- Love and care for others. Putting others desires before ourselves
3. Priority- knowing what matters most. Having the priority of Godly living
4. Honesty- Telling people the truth even if it ruins what you want.
5. Accountability- Willing enough to put aside our emotions to do what is right. Following Gods plan over our own.
6. Purity- self explanatory
7. Generosity- giving to others even if it doesn't benefit ourselves

First of all we should pray for ourselves to have these qualities and THEN pray to find spouses with these qualities!
