Miscellany & Mingle Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. I'm so excited for The Bachelor and 90210 tonight. I'm even more excited to watch them on my new DvR!! I really hope Michelle goes home...even though I know that won't happen. Reality tv loves drama!

2. I went skiing yesterday only 30 minutes from where I live. It was so much fun and I plan on doing it on a regular basis!

3. I made chicken spaghetti tonight for my work family and 2/3 of the boys actually liked it...success!

4. I met a new friend, Lenka, from Czech Republic. We hung out Saturday night and had so much fun!!

5. We are supposed to get MORE snow. Don't get me wrong, I love snow, but enough's enough. It's supposed to start at 3AM Tuesday morning and end at 7PM on Wednesday. Snow day is to be expected...good thing I got stuff to make rice krispy treats with the kids. Thats at least 20 minutes of entertainment.

5. I'm flying to Bama on Friday! I can't wait to visit my family and friends and I especially can't wait to get my hands on my new niece, Blakely.

Happy Monday!!

Big day

So yesterday was my 25th birthday... Geesh I feel so old. Haha! I am so lucky to work for a family that goes above and beyond to show that they care.

This is the amazing cake that they surprised me with!

My new camera that they got me...I looove it!

They sang happy birthday to me!
And showered me with even more gifts! It's so sweet that the boys even picked out such great gifts for me!

I wasn't feeling 100% yesterday...I'm kind of fighting a cold, but they def made it a very special day for me!!

I woke up this morning feeling much better so I am going to tag along to George's hockey game this afternoon and then maybe do a little celebrating! I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend!!

Wordless Wednesday

Almost wordless.

So I am obsessed once again with The Bachelor. I like so many of the girls this season, but these 3 are my leading ladies in no specific order...

Ashley...she reminds me so much of myself. A southern belle living in New York working as a nanny. I think she is so cute, fun, and avoids all the drama, which I LOVE!!
Chantal...She is awesome. I think she will go really far with Brad. She seems to be exactly what he is looking for and she is so much fun.
and could you not love her? and her accent? She is absolutely gorgeous and by far the nicest person ever! She does have some baggage, but I think Brad likes her enough to get past it. She is the whole package.

Now, onto my not so favorites. There is only 1 girl that really drives me crazy...I think everyone knows who I am talking about (if you watch the show)
Michelle...she is INSANE! Just waiting for Brad to figure that out.

On another note, Madison was really wierd at first, but finally let her walls down and showed her true self. I really admire Madison for what she did on the show.

So that's my Bachelor update. I can't wait for next week.

This weekend I went to see No Strings Attached and it was perfect.

I have a new obsession with Natalie Portman...go see it!

I laughed and cried so hard...Ashton never lets me down.

Until next time

Major Slacker

So I have been slacking majorly, but starting now I'm going to be a better blogger. I have just had a lot going on lately, in a good way. I am catching up for my own purposes so bare with me as I write a dreadfully long post.

So, I moved to New York to be a nanny/personal assistant and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I came up here during the the beginning of December and spent about a week and a half and then went back home to spend Christmas with my family.

So this is what has happened since.....

1. Christmas...
with my dad and stepmom,
with my nieces and newphews,
(who all got new I love NY shirts from their Aunt Steph for Christmas)
and with my mom and stepdad.
The girls with our expecting sister...who has since delivered a beautiful baby girl that I will talk about later in my post.
Girl Shot
Me and mom
Miss these kids so much!!
I was so excited to get to go back home to spend the holidays! I got about a week there before I hit my next destination, which brings me to number
2. The Bahamas!!!
I went to Harbour Island with the family that I work for a few days after Christmas and stayed through New Years. It was my first time in the Bahamas and my first time to go out of the country. It was amazing!
This was the view from my very own cottage!
(pool and all)
A private island that we visited for a was gorgeous and we were the only ones there.
Me and Posey getting ready for Junkanoo, which is similar to Mardi Gras in the islands.
My favorite picture that I took while I was there...
Gorgeous sunsets EVERY night!
I had an awesome time and feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to tag along on their vacation. We spent our days eating, going to the beach, laying by the pool, eating, fishing, and more eating. It was so beautiful! I also had conch for the first time...Eww!

3. Back to New York for "work".
I love my job and couldn't have asked for a better family. The kids are great and it's an adventure everyday living in a new place so far from home.
I spend my time either with the kids or with my new friend Liza, who is an au pair from Germany. We spend most of our time together at a local restaurant which we have adopted as our second home or making trips to NYC to go shopping.
After a shopping trip to the city....uh oh!
Did I really just buy 4 pairs of boots?
4. Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Vacation time again...I could get used to this!!
We spent a week on a ski trip to Jackson Hole! Another first for me.
I got to spend a lot of time bonding with this little one!!
Ski time!!
Again, we spent our days eating, skiing, snowmobiling, shopping, and just enjoying the gorgeous snow!
We rented snowmobiles and drove them 60 miles through Bridger National Forest where we got to see moose and elk just roaming around. It was amazing!

Just a couple of gorgeous shots I caught on camera...
This picture was taken from our balcony.
And this picture was taken at the Elk Refuge that we took a sleigh ride through on our last day.
It was an amazing trip. We got back into New York last week.

5. Last, but definitely not least!
I am an aunt....AGAIN!
My sister, Jenn, had her second baby, a little girl, last Wednesday (19th).
Welcome to the world Blakely Tatum Floyd!!
She weighed a whopping 8 lbs. 14 oz.
The happy mommy and daddy on delivery day.
And happy big sister!!
She is a natural...

I was soo sad to miss her welcoming into the world, but I get to go home to see her in 9 days!!! Yah! I am so excited. I miss everyone so much and can't wait to see all my nieces and nephews.

So expect a lot more posts from here on out...
