Baja Bandz

I am always about giving to a good cause, and Baja Bandz is one of them. My boyfriend has a fraternity brother that is going on a mission trip this summer to Baja, Mexico. To help with funds, he came up with a fundraiser called Baja Bandz. He makes bracelets, anklets, necklaces, and etc. out of 550 Paracord. There are a few different styles and lots of colors to chose from.

Here is a picture of my bracelet that came in the mail today.

They are all a pretty great prices, and don't forget...the money goes to mission trip funds. If you might be interested in buying one, check out the Facebook page here. "Like" the page if you are even somewhat interested...he will be doing giveaways every now and then.

Might be a new obsession...

Oh my goodness!! Thanks to Lauren at Lights In The Sky I found out about Selena Gomez's new single, "Love You Like a Love Song." Now, some people that know me are probably wondering why I like her because it's not the type of music I typically listen to. But there's something about Selena Gomez that I just love! She's got an amazing voice and absolutely beautiful!

I thought I would share with ya'll her new single!! Enjoy!! :)

The past couple of weekends...

I would definitely say that the last two weekends for me were very eventful. Since I am pretty busy these days with my internship, I'll be putting both weekends in one post.

June 11-12

I had a really rough day that Friday at my internship. I'm not much of a crier, but that night I got into my room, broke down and had a good cry. After a good phone call with my mom, I knew I needed to do something fun. Two of my best friends from college are only about an hour and a half away from me this summer so I decided to give them a call. I drove to Tampa and met up with my friends, Ellen and Becca. We had a good day of shopping and then decided to go grab some drinks. We just hung out with each other, but it was just what I needed! I stayed the night and came back to camp to begin checking in campers for the upcoming session. Here's a few pictures from that weekend.

 June 18-19

Earlier in the week, Ellen texted me and told me that her mom and her were going to be close to me on Saturday and wanted to eat dinner with me. Even though I saw Ellen the weekend before, I was excited and said of course! I get to the restaurant and can't find them anywhere. I finally ask a waitress if she knew where they were. She then walks me over to a table where, of all people, my boyfriend was sitting!! At this point, I was still a little confused but so happy to see him!! Saturday, June 18th, was our 1 year anniversary and he drove 5 hours to surprise me!! I was completely surprised, which made it even more special. So John and I got to spend the weekend together, which was amazing!! It was so pretty on Sunday and so I wanted to spend it outside! I still hadn't been to any of the parks around here, so we did a little research and went to two different ones. The first one was OK, but I really enjoyed the second one. They had a nice hiking trail that we went on. Of course, I had to take pictures. Here's a few.

 I apologize for the lengthy post, but I don't have as much time as I used to!! I really am trying to be better!!

Possibly, the best summer EVER

I apologize to my followers for being MIA for so long!! For some reason I was not able to log in to Blogger for a while, and then magically it let me sign in!! I'm not real sure...

I feel like I have a lot of stuff to update everyone on so here goes.

1. My internship in Florida is going amazing!! I've been here now for 3 weeks and I just love it!! For those of you that don't know, I am an office intern at a YMCA camp in Florida. I'm in the office for at least 8 hours every day, but I'm not complaining one bit! I have worked at a camp for the past 6 years, but didn't know anything about the operations part so this is definitely a learning experience. When I got here, there were only 3 other people living at camp so we all were together the majority of the time. The rest of the staff got here on Tuesday, and they are all so great! Since the camp is in Florida, all the workers are from around the area. And then there is me, roommate is from Alabama!! So I'm not the only Bama girl and we are roommates! It's pretty awesome! I can't believe that campers will be arriving on Sunday; time surely has flown by! Once camp starts, I probably won't have too much time to blog but I'm going to try my hardest.

2. About a week after I got to Florida, I started to think about my long hair. I will be in the office the majority of the time, but I will be outside a good bit too...and I don't know if you all know this but it gets pretty hot in Florida. After much consideration, and a little poll on my Facebook I decided to cut my hair off. I found this cute little hair salon downtown and gave it a try! I thought if I don't like it, it will grow out eventually. Well, 6 inches of hair gone and I LOVE it!! :)



3. So for Memorial Day weekend, I got to see the boyfriend!! :) I didn't have to work on Monday so I decided to drive down to Sarasota and visit him and his fam jam! I had a blast like always! I got to go to my first Tampa Bay Rays game which was so much fun! I couldn't get over it that we were inside watching a baseball game. Unfortunately, they lost. After the game, Avril Lavigne was there for a free concert. You could pay to get on the field to see her, and John actually bought the armbands!! The concert was alright, but it was really cool to be on the field!! Unfortunately, my camera was dead (which is very unlike me), so I had to take pictures on my cell phone.

During the game

On the field!!

And the next day, we went out on the jet ski!! We had a blast riding around the bay and getting some sun...maybe a little more sun than I really wanted because I am now peeling! But all in all, it was a great weekend with a great boyfriend!!

Hopefully, I will be better and not wait so long to post!!
