The Lobby of Hobby.

SO I made a trip to Hobby Lobby today on my lunch break (didn't need a whole day in there, my bank account can't afford it) and picked me up a few things. Hopefully I can get started on some "pinterest" projects soon! Looking at the stuff now, it's kind of a weird mix of things but maybe between what I have making another trip, I'll have what I need to make whatever it is I want to make.
Cross you fingers for Saturday morning!

Tomorrow is Friday! Thank goodness! I couldn't work another day if I had too!

And the job search finally comes to an end...

Hello blogger land! You are now reading the blog of Redstone Federal Credit Union's newest Secondary Market Specialist!!
I found out today that I received a new job title! I can't tell you how excited I am about this new job.
It's funny how things work out. Things that I thought I wanted and things I was so disappointed in when it didn't turn out...when it didn't go "my way".
Tonight in church we talked about trusting in God and how at times, it makes you anxious, nervous...and it's scary. I was sitting there thinking, "Haha, God!! You are really funny!"
I know He had a hand in this job...(or he was tired of hearing from me. ha!)

So...this job will give me a little bit of extra time in the evenings and no weekend work so I'm very excited to get started on some long overdue projects!
Stay's sure going to be a fun ride...for my husband! :)

Celebrating with ice cream sundaes!!
Thank you, baby!

Living for the weekend!

I had a much needed relaxing weekend this weekend. Yesterday we went to Tuscaloosa and of course, it was a good weekend. Can't beat a win against Arkansas.

I'm not too good for a blog post today but hopefully I can have some time to do some this week. I've got a busy week getting ready for Kyle's birthday this weekend!
Mr. Christian will be the big 2-6!
Hope everyone has a good week. I've off to get stuff ready for this week.

Monday, Monday...

Happy Monday!

I just wanted to share this little delicious goody with you.
I made these for Kyle and I this weekend on a whim. My mom had made these when I was little and it has been years since I've had these yummies!
And besides...Smore's are kind of "Fall-ish" right?!
Thank you pinterest for finding this recipe for me!

Golden Graham S’more Bars


1 10 oz. bag mini marshmallows (Approx. 6 cups)

1 12 oz. package semi sweet chocolate chips

5 tbsp. butter
8 cups Golden Graham cereal (one 12 oz. box)

1 tsp. vanilla (optional)

Place package of chocolate chips in the freezer to chill. Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan, set aside.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add in 5 cups of marshmallows and stir until almost completely melted. Stir in vanilla if desired. Remove from heat and transfer butter mixture to a large mixing bowl and add cereal, stirring to coat. Once cereal is coated, remove chocolate chips from freezer and add to cereal mixture. Also add in the remaining cup of marshmallows. Gently stir until evenly distributed.
Press cereal mixture into prepared baking pan. Cover and refrigerate until set. Turn out onto cutting board and cut into squares. Keep stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator.Makes approximately 20-24 bars depending on how big you cut them.

Let's just say, Kyle and I keep having to go back for seconds...

I might even take it tailgating next weekend!

I hope everyone is having a good week. My weekend was too short, as usual.
I'm headed to bed right now to finish up "How Dolly Parton Saved My Life"
Love, love, love this book!!
It's a must read.

Dolly Parton

So lately I've been reading several self help books, books by people who've "made it to the top" and religious books about how to be a more Godly woman.

This week I've decided to take a different direction.

I started "How Dolly Parton Saved my Life".

I'll keep you posted.

Horrible. Day.

I wish I could say I see this (Exhibit A: Youtube Video) all the my job...Some days I feel it's just the oposite. If a person yells at me...and you see them in line yelling at me...YOU yelling at me when you get to my window (About the SAME thing the other person was yelling at me about) just makes sense? Right?

I just want to say thank you to the man that stood in my window today and talked to me because the lady in front of me "was just being plain mean" to me.
You made my day.
This blog post is for you. I wish there were more people like you.
The five minutes you spent with me helped me make it through the rest of my day.

Next time you're at the bank...and the system is down.
Please remember is it not MY fault. I have nothing to do with it.
I am not personally trying to keep you from your money.

Thank you and I hope you have a *GREAT* day.

Fab find in the trash!!

So I have something exciting to share with you...You will never believe what I found...IN THE TRASH!

Yes, laying next to a dumpster in our neighborhood.
True to the meaning- "Another man's trash is...MY treasure!"

Funny story:
*Walking down the street, warming up for my run*
I walk by the dumpster and notice the window's leaning on the dumpster.
So I look around and it's clear this it's in the trash.
So...I pick it up.
I'm walking by and my neighbors are outside...a mom, little girl (about 4) and a baby.
I walk by and say hi to the mom and then the little girl says...
"Mommy, why does she have our window?"
*Freeze- crap*
I'm like, crap...I didn't want anyone to witness me taking their trash.
Our neighbor just laugs and says that maybe I'll find a better use for it.

I don't know that I'll find a better use for it...but I really didn't want to leave it sitting there near the dumpster.

So I continue walking it back to the house only to have Kyle, stopped from mowing the grass, looking at me with a look that says "Where the heck did you find that?!"
My husband loves me.

So...I'm asking you blogger-world...If you have a window pane in wonderful condition, what would you do with it?


Hope everyone has a good week!

Roll Tide, baby!

 It's finally here! Alabama football! I couldn't begin to tell you how it felt to be back in Bryant Denny.

First Stadium Dog of the season! Tasted so good.

Honoring the first responders at the game...This was very emotional. I will say I got really upset...I also thanked God for how lucky Kyle and I are...It's was a perspective moment. Friday I was complaining about life in general and there are people going through much worse in life. I couldn't help but think about Carson Tinker and his girlfriend...would she have made that opening game if she had still been here?

Spelling out Tuscaloosa was the best part of half-time.

Can't wait to be back in there in a couple weeks.

I've only got a three day week because Brittany Andrews is getting married this weekend! I can't wait!
Here's to making it a good week...and a good shopping day tomorrow! Love bank holidays!

We were asked to bring a dessert and I've been trying to decide on something to bring...We are leaving super early in the morning Saturday so easy is pretty much up my ally after this week. are my options.

Smores Bars:

No bake peanut butter cookies:

Puppy Chow:

I think I'm leaning toward the puppy chow...I haven't had it in forever and I know it travels well. I might save these others for the next tailgate!
