Sorry y'all. I've sort of unintentionally been on a blogging hiatus. Ya know who hasn't though? Mrs. Yocum, my cheer coach/photographer. Take a look!

Justin and Celeste Engagement

I know, we've been married for 4 months, but it's on her blog now!

Grown up job

Wanna know what I did at work yesterday? A lot of stuff, but here's one thing my boss showed me. (please note the emphasis on boss, I'm not YouTubing things at work.)

Isn't this incredible?! This was actually filmed at these people's wedding. I. Love. It.

Yes, my job is so draining. Ha. Kidding. I love it!

Happy Saturday, y'all!

Book Review

Yep. Well sort of a book review. More of my thoughts on books. BUT it's not required for a class for the first time in forever. I used to love to read, but then I think late high school and college sort of ruined it for me. Between class and different Bible/book studies, who wanted to read a book just for funsies? Not this girl. Now though, Justin has been reading the Hunger Games books, and after being urged by him and my friend, Ashley, I started them too. (Don't judge the books by the website. It looks way goofy. Or do. Whatever.) Y'all. I read the first 2 books in like 5 days. They're 300something pages each. Now, I'm waiting on Justin to finish the 3rd, so I can. It has been so long since I've gotten caught up in a book, but I love it. It feels more productive than Pinteresting things all the time, but really it probably isn't. At least I use the stuff I pin. I'm writing this to tell you that if you're a reader, or if you're not, read the Hunger Games. I cried 3 times in the first book (I'm an emotional reader.) Let me tell you why I love/hate these books: they are tragic and scary and lovey and unable-to-be-put-downy. What's so catching about them is that they could, to a certain extent, be real. Reading them is horrifying because people are killed intentionally where others can see to make a point, and this is a part of our history. It's not as if this hasn't happened in the past and is still happening other places in the world, and that is chilling and infuriating. It also makes me thankful that by the grace of God I don't live in an era where that is normal. How blessed are we to be in America in the 2000s?

Reading these books now has made me think of all the books I loved in the past; Are You There, God It's Me Margaret by Judy Blume, all the Boxcar Children books, The Babysitters Club, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Y'all, kids books are so fun. Is there anything you've read or are reading that I should check out? I'm determined to become a reader again and not stop once I finish this series. I hear there's a book called Justin Morgan had a Horse...might have to check that one out just for kicks. :)

Happy Labor Day, y'all!
