One of the busiest weeks of my life...

As you heard last Friday, I had a job interview! Well I found out yesterday that I GOT THE JOB!!!!!! I am so excited but kind of stressed! My new boss wants me to start this Friday, and as some of you may know, my grandma is having a heart procedure on Thursday with pretty good possibilities of her having to stay in the hospital over night... Praying that everything goes well with my grandma and that I'm well refreshed and ready to start my new job on Friday! I ask that you would join me in that prayer as well!!!

My grandma doesn't seem to be very nervous about her procedure. She's in good spirits, so hopefully all will be ok! We have to be at the hospital at noon tomorrow, and the procedure will be start around 2... poor thing, can't eat or drink anything after 7! My mom is taking off work, that way we will both be there... and we'll just have to play it by ear on how the rest of the night and Friday will go! So please be praying for my grandma, the doctors, nurses, and my family tomorrow! We would really appreciate it!!! Thanks in advance!

So today we spent the day running around and getting everything ready for my grandma... we got all of her legal stuff taken care of... (POA and POD) just in case something crazy was to happen we want to be as prepared as possible. Plus, I think everyone should have those two things in place in case something unexpectedly happened, everything would be taken care of. I guess that's the banker in me, I just know how hectic and crazy things can get if you don't have those things prepared in advance!

Yesterday I drove to Tulsa to get my hair done... my fabulous hair stylist, Lauren, gave me a new color which I am absolutely loving! It's a dark purple-ish red! Just fantastic! I'll post pictures of it soon!
I also went and spent sometime with my dad last night on the way home... it was good to catch up and he was surprisingly very supportive of my recent decision to become a vegetarian! So that was good! It's only been 4 days without meat, and I'm already feeling so much better!!!

As you can see, this week has been pretty busy and only going to get busier! BUT God is in control and I know that he will take care of it all!!! I'll report back soon with an update on all that has happened!
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!

J-O-B Interview...

I finally have a job interview! Hoping for the best! My interview is tomorrow at 1:30! Please say a prayer or 10 for me, I need this to be a GREAT job for me!
I hate going to interviews... mostly because I always wish they'd just tell me over the phone what the pay is so I would know not to waste either of our time... but that's just not how it works... hopefully this is everything I need and want in a job and I don't have to spend more time going to pointless interviews! Pray Pray Pray!

But because of my interview, my mom will be taking my grandma to the cardiologist tomorrow, we are hoping to find out something more! So, a prayer for this would be fabulous as well!

Went to my second weigh in at Weight Watchers yesterday! I had lost 3.6 pounds! Which means I've lost over 5 pounds in 2 weeks! So I am very excited! Yay me!

Taste for Sight is coming up in about a month! If anyone has anything they want to donate, I would GREATLY appreciate it, and be glad to come get it from you!!! Just let me know!

Well, nothing much else going on, I hope you are having a fantastic week!

The Heart of Life is good...

The week has been off to a busy start! Monday was INSANE with all of the flooding around this area... Thankfully we had no damages from all of the water, but it truly was a sight to see! My mom and I took my grandma to get an ECG on Monday but they weren't able to tell us the results until today... turns out they are sending her to a cardiologist because the pulmonologist thinks she has pulmonary hypertension. Soooo... the saga continues. Please pray they figure exactly what it is out and can fix it!

Yesterday was my first weigh in at Weight Watchers... proud to say I lost 2 pounds!!! Hoping next week, I will be able to report a bigger loss considering I'm going to try and exercise a little!

Last Friday my Uncle Rick and cousin Ricky came up and had dinner with us and swam in the pool a little bit! It was good to visit with them and catch up, we just don't see them very often! I wish I would have taken some pictures, but maybe I'll remember next time! I'm sure you find that hard to believe, that the picture queen forgot to take pictures, but it happens! lol! We are trying to plan a little family reunion type thing at Broken Bow... I've never been, so hopefully we can plan that for sometime in the next few months!

I'll keep everyone posted on how my grandma is! Thanks again for your prayers!

Hope you guys have a great rest of the week!

Donations...Donations Please...

Ok, as some of you know, I volunteer for Prevent Blindness Oklahoma as much as possible and I'm on their committee for an event called Taste for Sight. Well, Taste for Sight is July 30th this year in OKC and we are in DESPERATE need of some donations... so, I thought that maybe some of you would like to help! Prevent Blindness Oklahoma is the state's leading volunteer eye health and safety organization dedicated to fighting blindness and saving sight, they provide free vision screenings to all 77 counties in Oklahoma, so chances are, you or your child has received a free vision screening from PBO! Taste for Sight is a wine, beer, and food tasting event and ALL proceeds go back into your communities for helping prevent blindness and saving children's sight! During the event, we have a live band named The Fabulous Mid-Life Crisis (which I'm sure some of you have heard of), a live auction (including a trip to Tokyo, a custom one of a kind designed set of earrings, a spa package worth over $1500, and more), AND a silent auction... This is where I need your help! If you have ANYTHING you would be willing to donate for the silent auction, you will receive a tax receipt (PBO is a 501c3), you will have some signage at the event, and no matter where you are I will come and pick it up from you!!! If you would like to help, please contact me @ lynnzjay@yahoo.com , facebook, or by phone 405.471.7730! We appreciate any of your donations and your time!!!! Also, if you would like to attend this spectacular event, it's only $65 per person! I've attached PBO's website, so you can read more about the event and what they do! http://www.preventblindnessok.org/Events/TasteforSightOKC.aspx

Thanks in advance!

If You Have To Cry, Go Outside!

So yesterday after running a few errands, I decided to go to Barnes and Noble and look around. I picked up Kelly Cutrone's "If You Have To Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You"... I sat down with my java chip frap in hand and started reading... funny because I actually just planned on reading a little bit of it and if I like it, buying it. Instead I found myself sitting there reading the entire thing! Oops, I'm sure Barnes and Noble doesn't appreciate you just reading their books without buying, but oh well! Needless to say I really enjoyed her book. I didn't agree with all of what she had to say, mostly concerning religion, but there were a lot of truths to what she was saying. I recommend picking it up, or maybe just reading it at Barnes and Noble! ha... Try to keep an open mind! Most of the book she talks about finding who you are, finding what you love to do, then doing it and not taking no for an answer... and since the last few months I've been trying to find a j.o.b I really related to what she was saying in a lot of ways. I wish that I could say I read her book and now I know exactly what I want to pursue... unfortunately... I didn't. I definitely know I wouldn't last one minute in the fashion industry, considering the first time some one yelled at me, I'd probably get so mad, I'd cry. Clearly, that wouldn't work. But I really am searching and trying to figure out what exactly I want to do with my life. Maybe it's time for me to jump feet first into something new.... maybe I should move to Dallas (I've always said I wanted to live there)... maybe I should start an event planning company, considering I probably won't ever have a wedding of my own, maybe I could live vicariously through other people,ha! Well, I guess I'm still searching for what to do with my life! Praying God would provide me with CLEAR guidance.

On another note please say a prayer for a friend of mine, Jennifer Palmer and her family, who will be remembering her daughter Haley, who passed away June 13, 2008. I'm sure this week is probably harder than most for their family and any extra prayer would be appreciated as the continue fighting to find a cure for CF!

Also, my friend Jake Johnson is deployed in Afghanistan and his precious wife, Brittany is home with a one year old and twins on the way!!! Please keep them in your prayers as well!!!

I hope everyone is having a good week! My mom and I are starting Weight Watchers tonight, and for those of you that know me, you know that the thought of this gives me hives and keeps me up at night thinking of what I can eat for the next day to stay in my points... It literally becomes an obsession! EEEEKKKK!!! Hopefully I won't freak out this time, like I have every other time before! Wish me luck!!! (I'm gonna need it!)

Now... what can I have for lunch???? lol
Have a good one!

A week packed full of events...

Last Thursday was my birthday (for those of you living under a rock that didn't already know,lol) But I celebrate my birthday for an entire week!!! So Tuesday I went and spent sometime with my dad and Thursday my mom and stepdad took me to The Melting Pot for dinner and let me just tell you, IT WAS DELISH!!!! Saturday and Sunday we spent the day putting up an above ground pool for my grandma... I didn't do near as much work as my mom and Doug did but I was EXHAUSTED! I'm just really not the outdoorsy type! :-) But Monday we spent the day in the pool and really just relaxed!

Today, I've spent a few hours trying to find a job online, and I'm not having much luck. But I keep praying and I know God is going to open the right door for me! Please continue to pray!!!

Grandma is starting to feel a little better but still isn't able to breathe very well, so we go back to the doctor tomorrow and the pulmonologist some time later this week! Praying they have some answers! When we saw the pulmonologist last week, he sent her for a CT and come to find out her kidneys are only functioning at 45%... we aren't sure what that's about and if that has anything to do with something else that is causing her not to be able to breathe but hopefully we'll find out something soon! Please keep her in your prayers!

Well, here are some pictures from last weeks events... enjoy!
