School is good for a few things, one of them happens to be that sometimes an assignment can make you realize something you may not have really known.
We had to do an assignment for class on the American Dream. You had to find an article and then summarize it. Then you had to tell what your view of the American Dream is.

My idea of the American Dream has really changed over my rather short and inexperienced life. I went from wanting the newest cell phone every time it came out, to the most expensive jacket that wasn't worth the hassle. I am now content with just being in the moment. The American Dream to me is not based on the riches of your wallet. To me it is those smiles and approving glances of my parents and family, it is the laughing so hard it hurts moments with my friends and the little hugs and kisses I get from the sweetest kids that I work with at my church. All I want out of my future life is to be happy, I want to feel like I didn't waste one moment. The American Dream to me is that faithful husband, those healthy kids, that golden puppy, that family that is always there, and God to watch over me. Money and looking better than the next person is last on my list.

So for the past two weeks my friends and I have been planning a trip down to Orlando. One of my best friends Ruth goes to the University of Central Florida.
Our english teacher canceled class on Friday the 25th and Monday the 28th. So we decided what a great weekend to go.
Found a safe, nice hotel, and everything was planned.

Friday, we left at about 11:30 by the time we all were there and ready to go, we had to get food also.
After all that we were there on I-95! It is my first road trip without parental supervision, also the first road trip in my car.
We got there about midnight.
I then went to sleep while Britt, Kait and Mary went with Ruth to her dorm.

Had our wake up call for 8 something, we didn't leave the hotel until about 11.
The only way we made it there was because of our new best friend, Julia the GPS.
She helped us get everywhere.

We headed back to the hotel and Ruth met up with us. Ruth also brought a friend, Michelle.
So off we went to Millenia Mall, my true one home.
Got there looked quickly around Macys.
Then to the most amazing and my favorite Forever 21. I tried on 11 things and I got ZIP, but that is okay. Then Michelle and I got some lovely, lovely Starbucks.

Then I went in American Eagle and found my future jacket.
After that we left Millenia Mall and headed to the Outlet Malls and my second favorite Festival Bay.
Went to the outlet mall and to be completely honest there wasn't much there, so off to Festival Bay we went.

Festival Bay is heaven. Man you have no idea. An enormous Bass Pro Shop!!!! I got two, count them, two Guy Harvey shirts. One short sleeve bright pink shirt, the other long sleeve light pink shirt. After this we went to Ron Jon, bought some stickers for my car. After that off to the country store, sadly I forgot the name.

Look at me, I am an official bull rider. Here I come PBR!

After this Britt and I headed to the Vans skate park there. Love it!!!
After this we went to Chilli's for dinner.

So we got back to the hotel and I wanted to do something. Me and Britt decided to go to DOWNTOWN DISNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!! My one and only. The closest I gave gotten to Disney in about two years. However on the way there we were on the highway driving with our flashers on, it was raining cats and dogs.

We finally got there and it was so amazing.

The next day we checked out and off we go back to Mellinia Mall. Stopped and got McDonald's and Taco Bell. Again it began to pour.
Ran into Old Navy while being attacked by sideways rain. Even ran back into Forever 21. After this it was time to head home. YAY!

It was a great tripppp!

I am absolutely heartbroken.

Patrick Swayze is dead and I am so sad.

I cried.

I know

a few people who just are always going on about how they are so tired of their life, how they hate people and just literally think that everything around then sucks.

I am so tired of it. I don't see how people can be so miserable, when they are not near having a miserable life at all.

I get how sometimes I might get tired of my life but it is literally an amazing life. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I am blessed beyond belief and know that my life is going to be one that is so worth living.
I get it that people can be rude and annoying, but really. Do you have to hate people no matter what, without even knowing one thing about them? It is not right.
I have begun to realize I look for the best in people, I really do. I know that somewhere deep down people care. I give people the benefit of the doubt, even though at times it may not be smart. But I love it.

How do you hate a stranger? For one how do you literally hate a person?

Life is a gift and people take it for granted. Your life may not be perfect at moments, everyone's life is like that. However, you aren't a young child who's parents have died from a disease, leaving you to be the one to watch and raise your 3 or 4 siblings. You don't go hungry.

My life is amazing PERIOD.

One moment of patience may ward off great disaster.
One moment of impatience may ruin a whole life.

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

I am . . .

at a loss for something to write about.

I know my life is just so exciting and everyone is sitting around waiting for my next words of wisdom.

Yeah right.
So I might just wing it.

I am gonna let you know a little bit more about me.

10 (Random) Thing About Me:

1. I spend a lot and I mean A LOT of time with my best friends.
2. I love television. Favorites include; Sabrina The Teenage Witch, Criminal Minds, Ace of Cakes, 18 Kids and Counting, Phineas and Ferb, and Tori and Dean. My television is usually on the Food Network or Disney Channel.
3. I love the color pink. I have pink and green walls. My comforter and my blankets are pink. I have two pink suitcases. I have pink clothes galore.
4.I love my long hair. As a child, I had a bowl cut, followed by a mullet. Even though my hair is never down, I need it to be long.
5. I love my church. I have been going there way before I was even born. Over the years it has gotten bigger and bigger. To me, it is my family and I have so many people there I love.
6. A lot of my wardrobe consists of dresses. Around my friends, it is kind of what I am known for.
7. I love Fall and Winter. I can tell it is close. The past couple weeks I have caught myself looking out the window and thinking to my self "It must be chilly outside" and then I realize its 80 to 90 degrees and I get all disappointed.
8.My favorite holiday is Christmas. Last year every room in my house had some sort of christmas decoration in it. We have three trees up for Christmas every year.
9.I have moved once in my life, it happened to be across the drive way.
10. I have a stuffed animal named Puffles. I have had him since I was born. Whenever I am really upset, I am not embarrassed to grab him and just sob away. Wherever my life takes me he will go with, and when I have a little girl, he will be all hers.

Yeah, this post was just completely all about being bored.

The Start Of The Rest Of My Life

Today was my first day of college.

The end.

SIKE, it was okay, not as bad as it could have been.
Oh FSCJ, you treated me well.

Got there and waited for Kaitlynn.
Then walked to class and met Bethany for a quick hello.

My first class was English with Kaitlynn.

Then we went and found our other class. We found it and as we were leaving, across the courtyard, a vision of beauty.

Me and Kaitlynn: (in girly high-pitched unison) MICHELLLEEE!!!!
Kaitlynn: (Hugs Michelle and pretend sobs.)
Me: (Hugs her.)
Michelle: Got to run I'm late.

Haha I love you Michelle.
Kaitlynn went to Chick - Fil - A. I got Pizza Hut from Target. YUM!

Headed back to school. Had Psychology. Found the man of my dreams. I even have Psychology with a girl from church named Anna, I've known her since we were little.

It was a half bad day.

Tomorrow, only one class :)

3 x the fun !

So today just needed a post because it was just so much fun!

Today is Sunday, obviously. Like I have said before I work in the nursery at my church, and today was promotion sunday.
Our little one year olds left us and broke my heart, and we got the little bitty 3 month olds that scare me.

First off , background story time. Two years ago we had a set of triplets. S, J, and C (She's the princess.). Oh they stole my heart. I have kept in contact ever since, my mom and I have gone into their rooms and stayed to help a lot. I even started going by myself on Sunday nights to help. ( They even came to my graduation party, a day early :). )

Well today I was walking to my room, and there were the Trips in line for the elevator to go to the third floor, oh my goodness. I almost burst into tears. My babes were all grown up and gone, I couldn't just walk down the hall to them anymore.

Well, walked into my class and all that and here comes those little squishy babies, I don't like them haha. I just think I am going to drop them. Well I had a little girl I was holding and BURP! down my smock. To tell you the truth, I was okay. I had been spit up on before, just not in a long time.

More background info, I want to be a mom and all, like that is my dream. But I am trying to postpone diaper changes as long as possible, especially poopy ones. Just not my cup of tea. I also don't change boys. I once heard some one talk about her reason for not changing boy diapers and its now my new motto . . . I'm not married yet, I can't see that.

Well I do changed a little girl today, not my first, done a lot of them actually. Well the diaper came off, and she just peed everywhere. Yeah . . .

I didn't freak out, I was so proud of myself, haha. Finished changing the diaper, completely sanitized like 3 times, and like soaked myself in hand sanitizer.

Then I was just hanging around in the baby room, and Mrs. D, came up.

Mrs.D : Frannie
Me: Yes?
Mrs.D : Can you do me a favor?
Me: Sure. . .
Mrs.D : Would you mind going to the tripl. . .
Me: (Ready to go.) READY!

So she walked me up there, and aw what a great day. S saw me when I came in the room and came running over.

Just, they are amazing kids. All you here is upiess, meaning pick me up. They are talking so much.
C: (Takes me by the hand) M no soooeees on.
Me: Well then we need to fix that.
C: (Leads me to the diaper bags.)
Me: Oh no, they are under the table.
C: We need to go help him, sooooess.

Although this is all said not so well and in very cute baby talk.
My ongoing goal as been operation Trips know me by name haha.

So one down, three to go.

Me: What's my name?
S: Fannie

Sometimes it doesn't always come out Fannie, occasionally its Bannie, but hey its close enough.

At one point C came over sat in my lap and then turned around and just put her head on my shoulder, and almost fell asleep.

J just smiles at you and you are just in heaven, well they all do that.

It was circle time haha. Yeah right . . .
Not a good idea.

J was sitting on S. I was sitting on the floor.

S: Lap?( Points at me.)
Me: No, you need to sit in big boy chair.

C: Lap. (Pats her legs)
Me: You want me to sit in your lap C?
C: Lap (Pats again)
Me: But I would squish you.

They all got their lap time.
And I got my kisses.
J and his perfect MWAH sounded kiss. C and her kiss where she doesn't even touch you, so proper, and S not even a real kiss, just slobber.

After this, went to lunch with my dad at Cracker Barrell. Then the traditional Rita's Ice afterwards.

Rita Ice Guy With Moustache: Who's ready for college?
Me: NO

Then tonight, being the bad girl I am, I didn't got to church. Instead, Mary and I made a sign and welcomed Kaitlynn home from Virginia. YAYYY!!!
Went to Chillis for dinner, our waiter reminded me of the lead singer from Rascal Flatts.

My bad, that was pretty long. Hahaha.

S: Fannie this sooo heavy.
