I'm back..., I went out of town for 10 days. While I was gone blogging was pretty much the farthest thing from my mind, but all things are back in focus now. So here's what I was doing...

Saturday after work I headed to Springfield, where I met my best friend, Clay and we went to West Plains where he lives. I stayed there for the weekend, then on Monday we started the 4 hour journey to Burlison, TN to church camp! I love road trips!
So, we spent the week there along with about 300 other amazing people. Our church took about 13 youth kids, it was so great to see God working in their lives.

My job for the week was team leader, which means me and another guy were in charge of a team of 23 teenagers...AHHH!!!! No, it's really not that bad, I had a ton of fun. Not only are you leading, you are playing the games and getting hot and sweaty with these kids (I say kids, some were only a year younger than me!), but you are also building relationships. I was a little surprised that I was a team leader, since it was my first year to be a counselor at Sr. camp, I have been one at kids camp though. I met tons of cool people, maybe some of you are even reading this?

So once camp was over on Friday, we went back to West Plains where I stayed until Monday morning.

So now it's back to work and life as usual.

Here are some pics from camp!

The night before we left, a late night run to Wal-Mart.

Blond and Blas'e...

So I got my hair re-highlighted today, there is a lot of blond now. She used a darker red color, which I like very much. I kinda wish there was a little more of the red. I will post a picture when I have time to take one.
So next week is going to be oh so enjoyable! I am spending the week in TN at church camp with our youth kids. I'm so excited I can't wait. Camp is one of the greatest experiences ever. I'm so glad my parents sent me ever summer since I was like 10.
Some of the kids in this town really need to get jobs, or hobbies, or something. Every day since school let out the same group of teenagers has been hanging around the library bored out of their minds. They only get an hour on the computer at a time and once that is up they only get one again if we are not busy, which hardly ever happens. It seems like they could be doing something a little more productive. If you are going to hang out at the library ALL day at least pick up a book or something!
I added a counter to this page and it keeps going up, so I know someone is looking at this, leave a comment so I know who is following me!
All for now!

My weekend so far...

I think we will start with Friday, I pretty much did a whole lot of nothing for the first half or so of the day. At about 5 the UPS truck pulled in, which meant my new phone was here!!! I quickly changed clothes and headed to Alltel to change my service over to it. After that I decided I really needed some Chinese food, I needed to go to Wal-Mart after that, so I didn’t want to get it to go. So cut to me sitting in a Chinese restaurant…alone. Usually it doesn’t bother me to eat alone, I don’t do it that often, but when I do it’s fine. The waitress takes my drink order, then like halfway through my meal she comes by and says “where are your friends?” She usually sees me in there with the same people. I say “they had plans” to which she replies “Oh well, you should have brought your boyfriend”. That right there boys and girls was the clincher! I laughed and the rest of the conversation went like this -

Me - “well it would help if I had one”

Her - “whatever you’re so pretty, you don’t have a boyfriend, I can’t believe it”

Me - “well I don’t”

Her “it must be because you don’t want on then!”

Me - (with sad look on my face) “not completely”

A few minutes later I go up to pay for my food

Her “I still can’t believe you don’t have a boyfriend”

Me - ……..

Then she gets the attention of the other women working there, (at this point I should say she is about my age and the other woman is probably mid 30’s)

She says loudly to the other woman “can you believe she doesn’t have a boyfriend?”

Woman - “really!? Well she’s actually pretty smart” and she laughs

Then the first chick turns back to me, “I really love your make-up and you smell good”

Me - “thanks”

Her - “wait, I don’t swing that way, I don’t want you to think that is why I was going on about the boyfriend and giving you compliments”

This just makes the whole thing even more awkward…
I just laughed and said “yea, me either”

Then on to Wal-Mart, to buy things like make-up and food.


Time for a wedding! One of my cousins got married today, I’m so happy for him! It was a really small ceremony, like maybe 50 people. It was very casual, the bride actually had on jeans. That was a first for me, but it worked for them, they are very laid back kind of people.
Below are some pics.

So I was going to add a few more, but the uploader thingy is messing up, maybe later.
