Loving this beautiful weather!

Isn't it so nice to finally see Spring, I feel like Winter last a lot longer than it usually does! I'm loving being able to wear flip flops and sundresses! :)

Sunday was a total success at the Thunder game for Prevent Blindness of Oklahoma! We gave out 600 silly glasses before it was even half time. I'm glad I was able to be apart of it, although I thought I was going to scream at first because we were given the wrong time to be there to set up, but in the end, it all worked out! We left after half time and it was nice to not have to walk a mile in the dark! I'm really liking having the extra day light!

I decided yesterday that I needed to make my nails more Spring like! Here is a picture of my super cute spring nails!
Then today, I was trying to take out the trash and I smashed my beautiful nail with the flower on it in the lid. Blood went everywhere and it hurt SOOOO bad, for you ladies that have ever broken a nail, you know that it will literally bring you to your knees... so tomorrow, I will go get it fixed, although I know it's going to hurt really bad, I just can't handle going around with a missing nail. I'm such a girl. :)
We go tomorrow morning with my grandma to get her biopsy done, we should know if it's cancer or not by Thursday! Please pray that it's nothing serious! Thanks in advance!
Also, next Friday I go check out a cosmetology school, I'm hoping that everything works out so that I can go to school, with minimum debt! I'm still praying that God will show me exactly what it is that he wants me to do! I know he is in control!
Other than that, I hope you can take the time to enjoy this beautiful weather!! :) Happy Tuesday!

Yayyy for weekends!

Happy Friday everyone! It sure is a beautiful day!

So yesterday I went tanning and got burnt!!! Holy cow, I'm still on fire! I hate when I accidentally do that! I'd show you pictures but I think it might be inappropriate, ha! Moral of the story, always go less time then you think you can handle! :)

Hoping to go see The Bounty Hunter this weekend, and then Sunday night I will be helping out Prevent Blindness of Oklahoma at the Thunder game by passing out fun Harry Potter glasses and giving information out about PBO! It will be a long evening with no chairs but should be fun!
Not much else planned for the weekend...

I don't have anything more to say, but I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Spring!

Monday, after we took my grandma to the doctor we went to Mama Roja's at Lake Hefner! It was a beautiful day and here are some pictures to prove it!

After having 8 inches of snow on Saturday/Sunday the sun was more beautiful than ever! Spring is here!!!

Since it's Spring finally, I decided that it was time for a color change, and by that I mean a HAIR color change! For those of you that know me well, you know that I like to change my hair often and so Tuesday I traveled to Tulsa to see my friend Lauren and have her change my hair! She's an amazing artist and I am glad to know her!

Here's a picture of her and I after it was done!

I am absolutely loving my new cut and color! It makes me feel like a new woman! Thanks again Lauren for doing such a wonderful job! You da you da best! :-)

It was refreshing to go to Tulsa and get to listen to great music... OKC should really take a lesson from Tulsa radio stations, we have nothing compaired to Tulsa! And of course I had to visit my favorite place QuikTrip!!! In fact I went there twice in less than 6 hours! I just LOVE QT!

When I got home, I received a phone call from my dad telling me that a drive by shooting just happened 3 doors down from my old house in Tulsa. It's crazy sometimes to see how God works... he was leading me to move to OKC and thankful he know's what he's doing! :) Even though I miss Tulsa... I'm beginning to like OKC more and more!

Alrighty, I suppose that's all I've got for the day! Happy Wednesday to you and better yet, HAPPY SPRING to Y-O-U! :)

I just might scream!

Let me fill you in on the adventures of my day so far!!!!! I started this morning at 6:15 and for those of you that know me you know 2 things, 1. I'm unemployed and not use to waking up that early and 2. I am not a morning person. Anyway, I got ready and headed out for my 45 minute commute to the Unemployment workforce mandatory meeting that started at 8:15. I get there and when asked if I brought my two forms of ID I say yes then proceed to look for them. My social security card(of which I've always carried in my wallet) was no where to be found... so I ask the gentleman with no personality if there were any other forms of ID I could use because apparently I had misplaced my second form of ID, he then rudely responds, telling me I could use my social security card, birth certificate, or my passport. Well, I don't know how many of you carry around your birth certificate... but I do not. AND I don't even have a passport, for God's sakes, I'm on unemployment I don't make enough money to travel out of the states!!!!! So Mr.No Personality tells me that I have to go get one and bring it back, so I ask if I could just reschedule and he says "NO, you have to go get it and bring it back before 10am!" As I walk out the door in tears because not only have I lost my social security card but I have to make the trip back home (45min) and then back to this God forsaken place before 10am, which it was now 8:50. I get in the car, frantically calling my mom PRAYING she has my birth certificate somewhere I can find easily at her house and head there. Get there, pick up my birth certificate and return back to the Unemployment workforce office as fast as I can. When I walk in, the same Mr.No Personality says you'll need your ID after your finished with all of the computer paper work! UGH! So I begin all of the paper work online trying to finish as fast as possible when the site won't load my information right, then this lady, Miss.No Personality tells me that I must be doing something wrong on the computer for my paper work to not be loading correctly, I proceed to tell her, in not so nice of a voice, that I am not stupid and VERY aware of how to use a computer. She says "Well move, let me do it!" after she is unsuccessful at loading it correctly she says "Must be something wrong with the site." WELL NO KIDDING, ISN'T THAT WHAT I JUST SAID??? UGH! Ok, so I get everything finally done that is required and they tell me that I have to wait to speak with someone to go over it all! I'm thinking to myself "REALLY?" ugh. So this lady (somewhat pleasant) comes out, greets me, and takes me into her office. As I sit down I tell her "I'm really just wanting to go to cosmetology school considering I've been burned so bad by the finance industry I would just like to change career's!" She says "Well, have you filled out your FAFSA" Me: "I tried to but it kept asking for information about my family and their income/tax info" Her: "Let me guess, your under 24, no kids, and not married?" Me: "Yes." Very puzzled as to what that had to do with anything, she then says "Well, because you are under 24, no kids, and not married, the federal government goes off of your parents information!" I said, "Wait a minute, I file my own taxes, don't live with my parents and haven't for several years, why would I need to use their info?" Her: "That's just how it goes, you'd be better off it you were a single mother, then you would get it all paid for." I was so frustrated and floored by the fact that because I'm a responsible young adult, that pays my taxes and votes but didn't get knocked up, or married, I am penalized for it, but if I could just pop a child out real quick I could get it all paid for? Now tell me, DOES THAT MAKE A BIT OF SENSE TO YOU???? Needless to say I told her "I just might scream!!!" She looked at me and said "well, just stay positive" As I left I said "All my positivity has gone for the day, you'll have to check back tomorrow!" She smiled, I did NOT. Oh, and you know that second form of ID I HAD to have??? Yeah, no one even asked for it. Talk about frustrating!!!!

So, I'm looking for anyone that might just have about $10,000 sitting around that they would like to donate to my cosmetology school fund, I would greatly appreciate it! ha!

Now, I guess I'll look for something else to do, even though I sure thought that was what God was leading me to... Please pray that he would show me and open the right doors for me to do what he wants me to.

On my way home I saw this:

And although I had a terrible day, at least the sun is shining and soon this tree will be full of beautiful leaf's! God is still in control.

I hope I don't lose my mind!

Is it time for bed yet? My My My, this time change is kicking my butt!

Went to Dr.Bill Cole's funeral today... it was a great celebration of his life! Still continue to pray for the Cole family as they try to find a "new normal."

So, I got home from a long day and decided to look up more information on going to cosmetology school... really just trying to figure out if I can afford to go, tried looking into getting grants, but I'm having a hard time figuring it all out! Maybe this is part of the reason why I hated college... nahhhhh I hated college because I really just hate school. I keep hoping that cosmetology school won't be so much of school school. Does that make any sense? Well, if not, I know what I'm talking about. ha! I'm trying not to give up so easily but maybe cosmetology is not what I'm suppose to do. I'm just about to scream, I wish God would just give me a clear answer as to what he wants me to do.

Well, I suppose I will put the computer down for the night and hit the grind again tomorrow.

Say a quick prayer for me, I'd really hate to lose my mind! :-)

Hope everyone has a great week!

Busy Busy Bee! :-)

Pretty productive day I've had! Woke up not feeling very well, my stupid migraines sometime try to get the best of me, but after taking some medicine I was finally able to get rid of it. So then I cleaned the house, went to lunch with grandma, and we went to get the stuff for Dr.Oz's smoothie! After spending $50 just for some of the stuff we needed to make them with at Akins then we hit Walmart! Well apparently Walmart had a glitch in their system, which meant that NO ONE could check out for over 20 minutes... it was INSANE! Finally got out of there with some groceries and headed home to make the most expensive smoothie I've ever heard of. Well, it's not the worst thing I've ever drank and it does make me feel really full and since I've been trying to lose weight and get back in shape, I can definitely handle drinking it instead of having something that's not good for me.
Well, that's all I've got for the day! I hope everyone has a great weekend! HAPPY FRIDAY TO YOU! :-)

We are so blessed...

Oh what a beautiful day!!! I spent most of my day out and about, I must say it is just my kind of weather, SPRING is near!!!! :-) It was so beautiful outside I decided to take the long way home and when I say the long way home I mean the LONGER way home. I like to call it "Way the hell out there"... when it takes you at least 15 minutes to get to town, it's considered "Way the hell out there" in my book. So like I was saying, I decided to take the longer way home, which means no highway only back roads! While I was driving with my windows down, my radio up so loud that I probably wouldn't have heard an ambulance behind me(oops), and my Sonic Happy Hour Diet Cherry Limeade with Pineapple in my hand, I couldn't help but praise God for such a beautiful day! Just when I get down about not knowing what I'm suppose to be doing with my life, He reminds me that it's time for me to take in and truly appreciate all that is around me.

One of my dear friends lost his dad yesterday, which means my other dear friends lost their grandfather yesterday. Although I am so sadden with their loss, I can't help but think of what an amazing legacy he leaves behind, and even though I did not know him well, I do know that he was a great man, that made an impact on every life he came into contact with, especially his children and because of the person he was, his son, Page, is one of the most amazing men, I've ever known. As Page and his family mourn the loss of a loved one, they can rest easy knowing that Heaven has received another sweet angel. For that I have to praise God that he's no longer in any pain and walking with Jesus! Please say a prayer for Page and his family during this difficult time.

Ok, I better get dinner started... I have yet to get my daily work out in, so maybe after dinner I'll go take a walk and continue to admire this beautiful weather!

Hope everyone is having a great day and thankful that tomorrow is Friday! :-)

My fun-filled weekend

Day two of blogging... I'm sure once I find a job I will find it hard to blog very often, so I guess I should take the time to blog now!

Last Friday night, me and my friend Cory went to the John Mayer concert! It was my second concert of his to go to and just as amazing as the first, he is so incredible and if you ever get the chance to see him live, you MUST do it! He's fab! :-)

Sorry this isn't the best video, but it's what you get when I'm singing and dancing while taping! ;)

We were out later than I had been in MONTHS! Usually I'm in bed by 9 so not getting home until after midnight was LATE for me! Especially since I had to be up by 7am to get ready for my conceal and carry class, but I managed and rocked my class! I must say (and so did the instructor) that I'm a great shot! :-) I'm glad I was able to take the class, but I sure was tired! ha.
Sunday I spent the day trying to catch up on my sleep and just hanging out with the fam! We rented "The Hurt Locker" and I really enjoyed it, it made me so thankful for the men and women that fight for our country!
Well, that pretty much wraps up my weekend... I hope everyone is having a great week! I'm hoping the sun stays out and the rain they say we're suppose to get will travel away from us! :-)
Please continue to pray that God would show me what it is that he wants me to do! Thanks so much!

Here we go!

Decided today that I would start blogging, so here we go!

I picked "Same Book, New Chapter" as my blog name because I'm the same person just starting a new adventure. I'm not sure how this chapter is suppose to end but I guess that's part of it.

Lately I feel overwhelmed with trying to figure out what I'm suppose to be doing at this point in my life. It seems like 2009 was full of constant change and from the looks of it, I think 2010 is going to be a lot like 2009. I only hope, 2010 is more of good change instead of the bad. I've been trying to figure out what kind of career I want. I always thought I'd be in banking, but after getting laid off twice in the finance industry, I decided that maybe that's not where I was suppose to be. So I moved to OKC to start some what of a new life and to find a new career, only problem is, I don't have a clue what I want to do. So I was asked, what my passion was, what I really loved to do? Well, I love to eat and have recently found I like to cook but I don't want to cook for a living. Then I thought, I really love hair and make-up, but you have to know a lot of people to be able to make a good living doing that, so thats out. Well, I'm a great at sales so maybe I could be a realtor, but they have to work ALL the time and in this economy, thats not really the best idea. Ok, I love to travel and right now I'm young, not married (nor close), no kids, and nothing to tie me down (except for my pups) so maybe a flight attendent? But I hear that getting on somewhere is really difficult, so I don't know. I can't think of ANYTHING that I just want to run right out and do and it's difficult to find a career that I don't have to go back to college for. It's getting very frustrating, I wish God would just say "Ok Lindsay, you're suppose to do this" and I'd know! Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to talk to me like that, or at least he hasn't yet. So for now, I guess I will continue to wait and seek what it is I'm suppose to be doing. I'm just not very good at waiting. :-/
Please pray that God would lead me in the right direction.

Thanks for reading! I think now I'll go outside and enjoy this beautiful windy day!
