Sky Is The Limit

If you're in my line, I'll go around the side, and still bring it
Sky is the limit
So out of my way
You can't get me down

There's nothing like a clear peace of mind
To overcome the hardships in life
To sort out the wrong from the right
Someone's in line, but they can't get me down

I got my own self by my side
And mentally I gotta be free
I see the wickedness coming full speed
But, I hold together like the ball needs the seam

I'm trying to do something not nothing,
You're trying to hold me back and that's fine
Nothing you say or do is worth my time
Good day to you, I respectfully decline
And now I'm coming stronger than ever
You say I'm a fool
I say whatever
I'm in it for the good vibes together
And the love lasts forever

Nothing you can do to me now
Nothing you can say to me now

Now it's been seven years running
Backyards and front yards and at the eight - seven
Some hit the scene with a bang and that set it
While some they didn't really work hard to get it

Dream on they say dream on you're weak,
But my hand's still high cuz in my mind I've achieved
IV set the pace for a dream
6500 all the living I need

There's nothing you can say to me now
Nothing you can do to me now
Nothing you can say to me now
Nothing you can do to me now

Weekend Canoe Trip!

This weekend was our first official outing since I started event planning for the "young adults" group at my church. It was small, but we had a BLAST! We went canoeing at Heavner Canoe & Kayak Rental in Milford. I LOVE me some canoeing. HOWEVER, my sister Kayla & I can never be partners again. It was the worst! haha

Here's some pics from the trip.

As you can see, we had a great time! I cannot wait until the next one!!!

Sometimes... You use the right lens, remember to put on the right filter and create photo GOLD!! That is what happened here: 

And a little bit here too:

What can I say? Sometimes I'm just the bomb at scenery...

It happened again...

Time for another round of "Things That Happened While I Wasn't Here." This past weekend we did a big family trip up to Mackinaw City, or Hangtown as I like to call it. There was FIFTEEN of us up there.
Left to right: Dustin, Me, Grammy, Wes, Papa Dale, Uncle Mike, My Dad, Brenna, My Mom, Daisy, Aunt Jenn, Kayla, Tyler, Staci & Sam
We crossed the Mackinaw Bridge over into St. Ignace for a car show & to explore a little. (I feel like I didn't really get to explore much though. Felt really rushed because everyone wanted to do something different.) So when the bulk of us got across the bridge we sat down for dinner here at this fancy diner I don't remember the name of... haha oops. But the food was delicious, and the service was pretty quick for a group of 15! 

While we were waiting for our food me, Tyler & Daisy went out for a walk on the pier and found this gem:

Now I say "gem" because it is a very known fact in my family that my sister (their Mom) is a HUGE Michigan fan. Me, I'm a state fan, so anytime I can rub it in her face I DO! (though I found out after my precious little niece Daisy sings a song that goes "Michigan State is the team we HATE" on the bus, my eyes peed a little)

Here's a few more from our short time in St. Ignace.

Yea I know... St. Ingace is pretty much the bomb-dot-com... You should definitely go there sometime soon :)

Easy A

Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80’s movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80’s movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life.

Maybe a little TMI, but I don't really care...

It's about to get really real up in here blog world, because the point of this blog is to talk about me & what's going on in my life. (Who doesn't love to talk about themselves all the time, right?) Anyways, I feel like if I just skipped over this I wouldn't really be embracing the blog and that just defeats the whole purpose in my opinion.

So last night started period #3 in 6 weeks. This is very abnormal for any female, but me especially since mine are normally about a month & a 1/2 apart. Normally. I have had just about enough of this... well let's be serious, I have had BEYOND enough of this. It really is a situation. So the first thing I did this morning was call my main doctor because my insurance is DUMB and I need a referral for any other doctor I may want to see. I gave Lisa all of my information and asked if I really had to come in just to have them give me a sheet of paper stating I could go to my other doctor, or if she'd just do me a solid and send it anyway. Lisa is the bomb & just did it anyway. Then called me back about a 1/2 hour later & told me I didn't need one anyways. MAKE. UP. YOUR. MIND. 

Next step was to make an appointment with my lady doctor. He asked when I wanted to come in and I sarcastically replied "yesterday." I got right in with an 11:45 appointment and I was all set to give my doctor the "it's my body & I'll do what I want" talk about birth control to regulate my "monthly visitor" but she had other plans. Her plan was to "collect a sample" (A.K.A. inflict more pain than childbirth) of my uterine wall and have pathology analyze it. I honestly don't think I have felt worse pain. Any cramp I've ever had has been NOTHING compared to this pain, and it didn't just stop once she was done with the procedure. It lasted for about 2 hours after I left the doctor's office. 

Oh & did I fail to mention that as soon as I got back to work I pretty much busted my butt getting all the shipping done??? Yea that happened. That is also when I started to feel a little bit better. I say it was the aspirin, my aunt says it was all the heavy lifting helping her with the shipping. I'll call it a tie because there really is no clear way to tell. ;)

I have to go back to the doctor's on the 10th to see what pathology found. Hoping that it's nothing serious, but if it is I can handle it. I'm tough! And have no fear, as soon as I find out I will be sure to let you all know. I know you will be on the edge of your seat until then. :)
