My new buys

My cousin Vanessa came to visit me for two days. Talk about a great time! We went to the beach, out to eat, indulged in milkshakes, and saw Eclipse. For everyone that knows me, I was completely anti- twilight.... Was being the key word. I am Team Jacob! I don't know if I'll ever read the books but I guess I can never say never.

While we were at the beach, we were checking out all the bathing suits people had on.. Bad idea. As soon as we got home, we checked out the ones at Victoria's Secret. I love their bathing suits, especially when they are on sale! I narrowed it down to my top three and needless to say I have three new awesome bathing suits coming in the mail for me soon. I tried to find all the pics of them, but some are no longer on the site. I did end up with this one:

And the bathing suit bottoms of this set:

( I purchased a basic white top to go with it instead of all the sequins )

I just bought this Ed Hardy case for my Ipod.. In pink instead though. Love it!!
After that purchase I am seriously DONE for a while. There is nothing else I need and I need to crack down on saving my money.

Beach, Del's, and kangaroos

I try to take full advantage of my days off when I get them because I only get 2 a week. Usually me and Nick have opposite schedules, but we finally had the same day off which was nice for a change.

Our first stop was the beach. I love all the Dennis beaches I've been to... little seaweed! Can't complain. It's nice to have a beach sticker - access to resident only beaches; aka NO TOURISTS!

Then Nick showed me where they filmed part of the Bachelorette when Chris took Ali on a hometown date.

After we went to the Barnstable County Fair.. After hitting almost an hour worth of traffic we finally made it. It was interesting to people watch and walk around. They had a petting zoo, rides, and fair food! I couldn't decide what I wanted. Too many decisions.. But I finally found my watermelon Del's so I was content. The best part of the fair was probably being able to hold a baby kangaroo and getting a picture with it. So awesome! Don't get to do anything like that in Douglas. haaa

Visit back home

I love going back "home". Douglas is still considered my home even though I don't technically have a house there anymore. It's hard driving by the house that I've grown up in for almost 20 years of my life, knowing there are others living there.

But, besides thinking about that and missing my parents and cats to DEATH, I LOVE trips back home to see my grandparents and my best friends!!
I got my hair highlighted and cut- then the plan was to meet up with my close friends Meghan and Chelsey! I've missed them so much so they were able to meet up for shopping and pedicures! After picking up some lunch, I ran into my little sister Chelsea. I was so happy to see her and she ended up joining us for our little shopping trip! Talk about fate....

All smiles when we got our pedicures!! I love girls days and really miss that about home, but as long as we plan in advance it all works out!

New favorite movie

My favorite actor in the WORLD is Adam Sandler.. I actually got to meet him a few years ago when I went to California with my friend Jacleen- the best part about him (other than he's hilarious)? He is so down to earth and doesn't let Hollywood get to his head. Of course I had to go see his new movie, Grown Ups.

By far the best movie I will probably see all summer.. Although I have yet to watch the full ending of it because the actual film was messed up and faded out with minutes to go, the parts that I did see gave me a good laugh.

After seeing the movie it made me realize the basic things in life are what should matter. It's about memories with old friends, and making new memories with others. Change is good but in the end memories with old friends will remain the same. I loved it so much and can't wait to see it again!

They filmed parts of the movie at Water Whiz, the local water park closest to the Cape- I can't wait to check it out with Chelsea, my mini me this summer!

Work work and more work

I do so well with blogging until everything else comes before it. Lately my life has consisted of: work, the beach, running errands, and more work. Originally I asked for 30 hrs a week and the last week alone totals 38. Craziness!!

I really enjoy my job.. It's exciting to always be doing something different, although I end up taking orders for the most part. The good side of working in the food business is I'm able to see how a restaurant works and runs. Since I am majoring in business and concentrating on marketing, there are many different jobs in the field. I have yet to decide whether I enjoy retail, restaurants, or whatever else more. I think after this summer I'll be able to narrow down what I really want to do. If not that, I will be able to tell many stories about customers coming in. After every shift I can definitely tell an interesting story----- thats for sure. Maybe I will share some stories on here.
