The last is of a sea turtle who swam through a plastic ring when he was little and it got stuck while he continued to grow. So sad.
Mom and I have decided from now on to only use reusable shopping bags when we go grocery shopping. Walmart is selling them for 50 cents and I hope eventually plastic bags will no longer exist! It's actually way easier to bring your groceries into your house with your reusable shopping bag because you can strap it over your shoulder instead of cut the circulation off your wrist with the plastics! The key is just to remember to keep it in your car so you won't forget and leave it at home when you go to Walmart. It seems like such a small thing to do but if everyone did it, I feel like it will majorly help our little sea creatures and their innoscent little world. I hope I've encourage you to purchase the 50 cent reusable 'green' shopping bags at Walmart the next time you go shopping!
Feeding Holly some Spiderman birthday cake. The only way Holly will let Landon get near her is when he feeds her a treat. Notice his cautious face as he pets her, trying to make sure she won't run away once she notices he's petting her!

Today was an average day. I did get my 20 dollar tip from a 25 dollar haircut which is always exciting. It's rare to happen but occasionally it does. I once got a 100 dollar tip off a color service. I nearly peed my pants I was so excited! The end of my day was slow and when work is slow, I get sleepy. There's nothing worse than being at work and wanting to lay your head down on a table but you can't because that would probably be inappropriate.
Anyways, I don't really have much to say. This week hasn't been very eventful. I have, however, thoroughly enjoyed my mom and Holly coming up here. We're all heading down to Little Rock tomorrow for Landon's birthday. Mom and Holly will probably go earlier than me since I have to work until 5. I have to do updo's for prom tomorrow even though I don't do up-do's. These girls will leave crying because their hair will look like a disaster. I feel really bad and I told the salon I can't do them but we've got so many girls wanting them that they had to put me down for some. If you want pretty waves or a good pageant 'all the way down with a big poof' look I can handle it. If you want crunchy curls piled up on top of your head I can't help you out. And you know that's what all these girls want. One girl left last week with 4 tendrals falling down her face. SO UGLY!!!! Why do they want to look like that? Every girl at the salon hates updo's and dreads doing them. I'm going to need some serious help from the other ladies. Scott was like, 'you can do it.' I was like, 'uhhh...my updo's will look just as good as yours would.' Totally not kidding. I'm miserable just thinking about it. My armpits will be sweating all day tomorrow. Not looking forward to it.
Alright well, I guess I'll go pour myself a glass of wine since I just remembered I have that to look forward to tomorrow. Wish me luck!

I need to return something at the mall that I've decided I can live without. I'm more than broke right now....I need to not spend anymore money for the rest of the month. Shouldn't be hard since there's none left to spend.
Mom and Holly are coming to Fayetteville for the week! I'm so excited!! Us girls are gonna hang out and have a good time.
I'm really hungry....I could totally use some french fries from Slims with a side of Cayanne Ranch. YUUUUMMM!!! Too bad that would take up all of my calories for today and tomorrow if I followed through with it...
Scott called me earlier and totally teased me. He was like 'I've got the best news ever!!' I was like, OMG, HEINZ CALLED??? Nope. This special burger that he loves from Backyard Burger is back for a limited time. Such a nerd and a total letdown.
I woke up at 5:15 this morning because Scott and I decided to stay in Little Rock and drive to our destinations today instead of late last night. I'm so tired! I have no doubt I'll sleep good tonight.
I guess that's all. Here's a funny video that Jake, Jaclyn, and I took of little Rose trying to jump on the couch. She just jumps way too soon to make it up there. She'll have it down pat soon. Enjoy!

On Saturday I went off to work. I was so busy and didn't get to eat lunch until 2. Waaaaayyy past my normal 11:30. I was starved. Scott and I were gonna go have a din at Bordinos but we decided off the wim to go to Penguin Eds instead. I LOVE their salads!! Yumm. I could use one right now. We went to Blockbuster after dinner and I was very close to renting Twilight but Scott convinced me on how dumb that would be seeing as I'm about 10 chapters away from finished the book so we left the store with no movie in our hands.
Sunday Scott and I woke up bright and early to go to the 9:00 Easter service. We decided to other services would be really packed. Randy came with us and afterwords, we went to Randy's house/mine now too and I cooked a lovely Easter lunch. My family usually does a Thanksgiving meal for Easter too and I did a half version. Honey Baked Ham, hashbrown casserole, this amazing creamy corn I make and a salad. It was delish. Want the creamy corn recipe? It's so easy.
3 cans of white shoepeg corn drained
1 stick of butter
1 block of cream cheese.
Mix together, melt in microwave, add jalapenos for some extra yummy flav! Mmmm!!!
Sunday night Scott and I chilled and today we've been trying to figure out my taxes. My crazy ass boss from Memphis won't send me my 1099 or anyone else I worked with for that matter so it's gotten ALL OF US in a pickle. Scott is stressed. We finally just had to file an extension until the IRS gets a hold of her stupid illegal crazy mental self.
Now I'm about to go to Wal Mart and get some stuff for din then head over to Jaclyns to cook dinner. Brad is away...Scott's on the road to Memphis...it's just us girls tonight. Have a lovely one!

On the weekends when Scott comes up, we stay at my place...our place.
Work was good. A little slow. I only had 2 womens H/C so I stayed in the breakroom and read Twilight. I'm never one to read the latest scifi. I felt like I was being tortured when I went to the first Lord of the Rings movie and I haven't read/seen any Harry Potter stuff. Jaclyn is OBSESSED with Twilight as she's read every single book there is. 4 I think? She insisted I read it so she gave me her copy and after having it for a week now, decided to start it up today. I've made it through chapter 4 and I'm enjoying it very much. It's not weird like I thought it was going to be. I don't do weird. I'll let you know how it's going as I progress. I'm assuming it'll be a page turner since every person in the salon was like 'OMG BEST BOOK EVERRRRR!!!!'
Speaking of Jaclyn, I must tell a funny. We text each other a lot while we're working when we're bored. We'd been texting back and forth all day when I get a text that said 'so what'd you have for dinner last night?'' HAHAHAHA. It made me laugh out loud and I was embarrassed because everyone was starring. 'I told her she MUST be bored if she wondered that.' Chicken fajitas BTW.
Okay I'm gonna go and see if Randy needs help with din. Peace Out!

Scott took off at 7:15 this morning. I tried to convince him to stay but didn't succeed. Maybe next Monday! We've decided that he's always going to stay on Sunday because all weekend we're hanging out with friends and family and never have time to ourselves. So Sunday will be a just us kind of day. We had a romantic dinner last night on our fine china! It was nice and fun.
The Hills premiers tonight. I feel like I'm WAY too old to be watching that show but I do. Not religiously like I do my other shows but if it's on I'll watch. I'm sure it'll be filled with all kinds of immature drama.
Well....I don't really have anything to talk about today. Except though I went to Wal Mart and was walking to my car and some dude that was walking past me burped right beside me and I found that completely intolerable. Who does that out loud? In public? So rude.
Oh and P.S. I'm still going good on my diet! I weighed today and lost my weekly pound. Very exciting! I would have a lot more calories for food at the end of the day if I wouldn't have a glass or two of wine. 1 glass of wine is 200 calories!!! Not worth giving up my wine though. It's the best part of my day. Jake took a look at my lose it! app and has downloaded it on his phone too and decided to partake in the process. He'll have just as much fun with it as I do I'm sure! When I tell some people I'm on a diet their like 'poor you.' Nu uh though! I love a diet especially in the summertime. I love the way it makes me feel. Okay well, I'm gonna peace out now. Later!

Jake came up to NWA this weekend and we all had a great time. On Friday, Braclyn, Jake and us Johnson's went to Theos for some martini's and their bar food. We love their bar food because it's delicious and cheap! I had been craving a martini for some reason. Very unlike me....they were yummy! After Theos we went to this new bar called 21st Amendment. It was very Memphis like. I enjoyed it. However, us kids are too old for the bar scene now. We just don't enjoy ourselves much anymore so we peaced out and were home by 11. I love going to Theos because it's very grown up to me. There aren't 19 year old's showing up with their fakes and acting a fool. Theos is just nice and chill and I LOVE IT. Much more my style these days. Except when I get the urge to go to a piano bar because that is never not fun to me.
On Saturday, I got up for work and was super busy. Afterwords, I picked up Jake at the Julians and he rode with me to my father-in-law's where Scott was. Randy cooked us a delicious filet and veggies. Braclyn was at a wedding but as soon as it was over, they came to the house and we hung out and veged.

The job starts tomorrow! Yay and yay! So ready!
So I went to Masons and saw some super cute shoes...but since my weekly budget is gone I'm gonna need to come up with some money so I think I'm gonna go through my closet and see what I can find to take to Platos closet to sell. I do that a lot. Hmm...okay well, I don't really have a lot to talk about. I guess I'll go raid the closet. Wish me luck!
