Hello There…

Hello everyone, it’s me again! I’m back! How are you? How’s work or school? Any big plans for the summer? Good, good, nice to hear that. I’m so sorry for the long absence, I didn’t mean to be gone this long. Well it looks like we all have some catching up to do so here goes!

I’m still on night shift at work, but now I’ve been moved to dispatching. There is a bit more involved in this position, but I have a bigger desk so that’s nice. I will start college back up in the fall with Arkansas History as the number one class I need to take. I probably should’ve taken it when I was working on my associates degree, but I didn’t need it. So now here I am needing it for my bachelors degree.

Towards the end of last month I went and put the down payment on my tiny home! It should be completed being built towards the end of June! Then it’ll be time to start fixing it up from the inside out. I’m very excited about this and can’t wait to get started!

This summer I am also going to work on finding a better all around schedule for life. Mainly a better sleep schedule that won’t make me tired for work, but will also help me not sleep all day when I’m off work. I also want to work on blogging more, I’ve been trying to find a better schedule for blogging and this summer I will find it!

I hope your summer has started off great and I will talk with y’all soon!

Battle of Jefferson TX Part 2

Sarah and I left our hometown in the afternoon to travel to Jefferson, TX. It was about an hour and a half-ish drive to Jefferson. For me it was the shortest distance out of the state driven to an event- and as someone who gets carsick easily it was also the easiest drive!

Two pictures I took while we were driving there.

The downtown area is so beautiful! I loved the brick roads and the lovely brick buildings. My favorite building out of the downtown area was the Jefferson General Store. Stepping foot in the general store was like stepping back in time. I’m looking forward to going there again!

Sarah saw this card and had me stop to look at it. It was so cute! They had quite of selection of adorable cards!

We also got a selfie with John Wayne!

A beautiful church, a lovely home and magnolia tree, and a downtown museum..

That Friday night there was a street dance. Not many attended, but those who did had a lot of fun dancing, laughing, and talking the night away. In fact (between you and me) I enjoyed the street dance a lot more than the actual ball….don’t tell Sarah that though! ;)

Battle of Jefferson TX Part 1

I’m writing this in the hotel room after I’ve halfway finished lunch, my hair still up in it’s 1860’s ‘do,’ my dress and petticoats and other 1860’s underclothes on the floor, oh and I’m in modern clothes! I’m at the Battle of Jefferson TX civil war reenactment with my good friend Sarah! We are enjoying our down time waiting for the battle to start. Earlier today we saw a parade and the town skirmish….it was quite loud and a little rowdy at some points, but everyone enjoyed it!

When we arrived early yesterday evening I was in love with this town! They have so many antique stores!! Sarah took me to the Jefferson General Store and I went absolutely crazy in there…..everything is just so cute to me there!

This morning I knew that I would wind up taking so many photos that there would be too many for just one post. That’s not bad…right? ;) So I’ll just share a few right now and then it may be time for a cat nap. ;)

These are just a few of many more to come! I hope y’all have a great day!
