6 Have gravy boat reengraved.
Second Homes come in handy! After Mother and Fathers seperation, they both had a house to live in, and my Mother got to keep the house we all loved the most, while Father had to move! It was a great day! However, my siblings and I could still go fishing, or spend time at the lake whenever we wanted to. During my time spent at the lake house, I learned to water ski, skeet shoot, deer hunt, fish, golf-cart, dirtbike, play tennis, and of course spend time with family. We keep the old ugly truck there, that I learned to drive stick on...which, well, I never actually learned...just tapped a tree or two! I dont go much anymore, but I know that I will always have a few acres with my name on them! That gives me a sense of security.
I have personally only travelled for a long period of time, to New York City for three months. They were the best three months of my life, and I will never ever forget that experience! True Prep puts it best, "We may travel to see relatives, take a semester away, or go to rehab" Hey, these days, anything counts as travelling!

I hope everyone has been doing well! I am so sorry, again, that I am so behind on posting! I love to wait until I have something worthwhile to post about, and more importantly have adequate time to post!
Life lately has been absolutely perfect! It cannot get any better than it is right now...which scares me, because life is a rollercoaster, I just hope it stays good for a while! Also, I hate saying that, but you all know i've had my ups and downs, we all do! The key is to just embrace the good, and it will always outweigh the bad. There are so many things that I could let stress me out right now, but I just wont, there are too many wonderful things to be thankful for!
My first peice of news is that, my pictures from a photoshoot I did in New York City over 3 months ago finally came! Also, I have been asked to come back for the Winter Shoot after Christmas! I am beyond excited, because everyone that I had the opportunity to work with showed so much passion toward their job, and showed me such a fabulous time in the city! LOVED them!
Also, the other day I got a call about a commercial that I sent my information in for. I went in for an audition, and was just cast in a Doritos commercial, filming here in Wilmington! I have my first wardrobe fitting today!
Last, I was recently cast in a Book Trailor. Book Trailor's are shown before movies in theatres along with previews, and the last trailor this company filmed was shown before Twilight:Eclipse, and "Alice in Wonderland"! I am cast as a New York City flapper, who was once a Southern Belle...so fun!
Also, at my current job with the Resort I work at here at the beach, I have been asked to intern in Marketing, which should be such an amazing experience! I love love love all of the managers there, so working with them will be so perfect! I will learn so much, because they are so smart! This job is by far the greatest job I have ever had! I have made so many new, wonderful friends, and am absolutely loving it! Working with the marketing side will be so much fun! I cannot wait to get to know the managers better, and learn more about a field I could possibly see myself working in one day!
Also, my neighbors here at the condo are so freakin' funny! I have started sitting down with them on a regular basis with a glass of wine, and just taking for hours! What I just found out is that the lady is the GM of another hotel here on the beach, they have an opening for a position in sales, and I interview for that on Wednesday! Of course, I havent graduated yet, but all of the interviews and such are great practice, and they can hold my resume until I do graduate! I am so excited!
I don't think I have been this content in such a long time! Don't get me wrong, im always a happy girl, but just to be so thrilled about every day because i'm always doing something I love, makes me realize how good life can be. Its so important to take advantage of every opportunity you want to, and be happy! It really is true that attitude makes all the difference!
Every night, a group of us from work go to a spot right near my favorite Surf Shop, to have drinks, play pool, or just hang out! Its so low key, LOVE the people that work there too! Yesterday afternoon, we all went to watch football, and it was so much fun! I am apparently now a steelers fan, because I wore a black dress! Personally I like the ravens, because Michael Oher plays for them...but nobody here likes them! Im gonna need a reason for this, I didnt buy a navy dress for nothing!
Personally, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I know some people see it as bad, but I really do like it, and I love the Horror Fest on AMC...every single Michael Myers movie is played back to back for days! Its so fun!
Now, dont judge, but I am going to be Elin Woods...
I bought the golfclub, bent it, and glued a "Tiger Beanie Babie" to the end...
I also got an Escalade rim, with a gold chain to wear around my neck...
To start off Halloween the right way, everyone from work is going to "Panic Attack" on Thursday! This haunted house is apparently the scariest one here! Its 11,000 sq. feet with everything possible that could scare a person to death! Apparently Disney puts it on, and puts half a million dollars into it, so you know its scary! I am so excited!
Yes, beach life is fabulous! I am just taking in every day, and am so thankful to God for putting these people, and this job in my life! I couldnt ask for anything more! I love it here so much, and am truly hoping an opportnity comes that will allow me to stay in Wilmington for a long time!
I hope everyone has a great Monday!

This weekend was chaos, in the best way of course!
Did any of y'all do anything, or have any big events?!
This weekend was so special to me and my family, because it was my Grandmothers 80th birthday!
I am so so so excited for her, not only does she still look 50, but she is so sharp, and doesn't seem 80! She is my Mom's Mother, and lives just a half hour away from us. My mom is 1 of 3, and all in all, they live fairly close to each other!
We all met at my Aunt's house in Charlotte before going to lunch at a wonderful French restaurant to celebrate this special day! My Aunt always picks the best spots to eat for birthdays, or whatever holiday it may be!
My mother made the most beautiful, and tasty cake! It was a "Freccled Mocha Cake" with coffee icing, and red writing to say "Happy 80th!" It couldnt have been more perfect! It was funny though, because we only put 8 candles on the cake, but the matches kept going out before we could light them all...I think Grandmother was a bit offended...but we just kept telling her how fabulous she looks!
Another perk of the weekend was that I got to see my cousins, whom I rarely see accept for holidays! They are so much fun! I am the eldest grandchild, but Lord knows I dont act it! We all have fun, and play football, soccer, or just chase each other around the neighborhood...I LOVE seeing them!
It was a wonderful weekend, and the weather made it absolutely perfect!
I don't know about y'all, but part of me just isn't ready for Fall! Thoughts?!
Have a great Monday!

Take Ivy was first published in Japan in 1965. Once published, this particular book set off an explosion of American-influenced "Ivy Style" fashion among many people, mainly students in the trendy Ginza shopping district of Tokyo. People embraced the "Ivy Style" and made it their own, living the preppy lifestyle.
Take Ivy is now considered a definitive document of this particular style, and rare original copies are highly sought after by “trad” devotees worldwide. The book released 8/31 is now readily avaliable in the English language!
Another new favorite," True Prep", was released on September 7th.
