I was in Heaven, now not so much

So today I did something i've never done before, I got a MASSAGE!!

It was the most relaxing experience of my life! I was in heaven!

It was a little painful to begin with, but then I was loosened up and it felt so good. 
She told me I was super tense and that I had a lot of knots in my neck, hips, shoulders, and feet.
Because of being a nurse I kind of expected most of this, bc of being on my feet all day and all that jazz. She recommended a chiropractor also, anybody ever been to one? 

The atmosphere was amazing as well. She had candles burning, nature music playing, and the bed sheets were heated. The sheets were great bc it was kinda cold in the room. 

Needless to say it was a very relaxing hour and I will definitely be getting another one soon!

I also signed my mom up for one next week! She is excited too!

Now onto the not so much part, I am now in pain from how much kneading she did on my neck and shoulders. I can hardly move my neck or shoulders, bc they are sore from all the knots she was trying to alleviate. 
But on a good note I think i'll be able to sleep tonight. Oh yeah thats right y'all don't know, but I have been battling some intense INSOMNIA! I haven't been sleeping good and i'm tired all the time!!! It's terrible and I feel worthless most of the time. But my massage therapist told me to take a bath in lavender epsom salts before bedtime, so i'm gonna try that later this week. Its suppose to release the toxins in your body and lull you into sleep, we shall see ;) I will let y'all know how it works!

Have a great Friday!

ps. I am praying for all of y'all that were in the path of Sandy and I hope your all well!

So I know I haven't been around a lot lately, but it was with good reason. My little cousin L has been staying with us for about 3 weeks and he just went home yesterday. Needles to say when a 1yr old is involved it is very difficult to blog and work. I miss the little booger all ready and cant wait to see him & A next month for the holidays. 

Hopefully, I am back from now on! I dunno how all my nurse friends find the time to blog so much, I cant seem to get a handle on it and work the way we do. 

Oh in more nurse talk I finally joined the club and bought me a pair of Dansko shoes! I am so excited about them! They should be here tomorrow and I cant wait to try them on and see if its worth my $$$

Heres a pic of the new shoes!

And they are my fave color, PURPLE!!

So I finally got to meet a fellow blogger IRL!! I was so excited! But I must confess it was a total coincidence that we met, it wasn't a scheduled blate with Mrs. Jessica from Stilettos & A Fishing Pole. We were both in Lowes last thursday and happen to see each other. I was playing with L outside and she came up to me and was like "is your name Candace, i'm Jessica" I was like OMG I can't believe I finally get to meet a fellow blogger (there aren't too many bloggers in my area and I have yet to meet another blogger IRL)! So we chatted for a few mins and then we had to go. I hope to get to chat with her again soon!

Alrighty, I hope everyone is doing good and to all my bloggy friends on the northern eastern seaboard are staying safe! 

Have a great day and i'm going to clean some, do some hw, and then relax!

Just Add Color Swap Reveal

So I linked up with On The Front Porch for the Just Add Color Fall Swap

I was paired up with Stacy from A Look Into Me

We have a lot in common and don't live too far away from each other. We are both pretty simple gals and like simple things, so shopping for her was a breeze. 

Here are the goodies she sent me!

A gorgeous scarf, 2 pretty nail polishes, 2 bracelets, and a sweet card!

I enjoy doing swaps, especially when you get to meet sweet ppl from it!

The Sickies

I'm so sorry I haven't been here lately, I was out of town, working like a crazy person, and on top of that I am the sickest I have been in a very long time!!

It started out with a sore throat, I fought it for like 2 weeks, then the coughing started. I went to work friday and was ok and got the Doc to look at my throat and said its probably a virus. I said ok I'll manage no biggie. 

Biggie indeed, I work up saturday, 4hrs from home sicker than sick. The rents and I went to my granny's to check on her and do some stuff. We went non stop from early that morning to late that night, lets just say I was exhausted! I didn't sleep saturday or sunday night and paid for it dearly! 
I don't sleep well at my grannys. 

Monday I called work and asked if my doc would call me in something and being the wonderful doc he is, he did bc he knew I was sick to be asking for something.

So i'm thinking its bronchitis and i've got to get over it soon, bc my bestie just had a baby boy on Friday and I need some baby boy sugar!

I will hopefully be back soon, but my work schedule is crazy right now! I'm going to try to start scheduling ahead of time, but I haven't got it done yet.


Ps.   As I type this im listening to Christmas music to feel better, bc its my thing!!

I love children and want several

I love family and am very close to mine

May We Never Forget

11 years ago today the United States was forever changed

11 years ago I was sitting in my 8th grade US. History class, an announcement came over the intercom and we were told to watch the tv. We learned a plane had crashed into the 1st tower and then we witnessed the 2nd plane crash. I was crying in my sit as we watched what I knew had to be a dream, this can't be real, I thought. 

As the day progressed all we did was watch the tv and eventually see the plane crash into the pentagon and the plane crash in pennsylvania field. 

In a selfish thought I was devastated, bc I knew that my dad would be leaving. You see he is in the Air Force and I knew he would be put on active duty and possibly be gone for nobody knows how long. My mom came and picked me up from school early, when my dad got home he told me the thing I had been dreading most, he was called up and would be leaving soon. He didn't know when or for how long, but gone. 

I pretty much cried all day and prayed all that day. I prayed for those in the towers, planes, and on the ground. I prayed for the firefighters, police officers, and emts trying to help those there. I prayed for the families left in turmoil and for all the innocent lives lost. I prayed for America. 

May we never forget those who lost their lives and all the heroes who saved many more.

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children."

Attention Please

Due to the fact that I am unable to write a post without a word vomit of things I should not say, I will not be posting until Monday or Tuesday. I am sorry for not following through with my commitment to return to blogging, but sometimes real life gets in the way and somethings are private and should stay that way. So therefore I cannot post until I get my emotions in check. 

Thank you!

Okay bloggy friends I need prayers please, I cannot divulge the details as to what the need is about, but just know i'm in desperate need of them. 

I am having a lot of family issues and and they are weighing heavily on my heart. 

I am the type of person who wants to fix everything and make everything better for my family, that is why I became a nurse, bc I like helping people.
I am a control freak as well and when I cannot make things better or make them go the way I need or want them to go, I kinda freak out. I love my family and want the best for them, but right now there are a few of them I just want drop kick right now. 

I have been praying, praying, praying for things to work out and I don't see an end in sight at this time, but I know MY God is greater and MY God is stronger than all my problems! I am standing on the word and His word says He will not leave me nor forsake me, He works all things to my good, and He is here if I only ask Him. 

Thank you for the prayers and love! I love each and everyone of you, even though I haven't met y'all!

ps. here are some songs that help me through and I hope they will help you!

Kutless - What Faith Can Do

I'm Back

So I know I have been gone for most of the summer, but I am back now! I have been super busy all summer taking care of my little cousins, working, doing school work, and just having fun!

I am going to try my best to be back full time from now on, but it may not happen all the time. I have tried to start back before now, but have been unable to bring myself to put forth the effort this blog requires. But I feel I am back to a place where I can be here more often. We have been dealing with a lot as a family this summer and my mind has been anywhere but set in reality.  I have been escaping into the world of my books and movies. 

Am I the only person who re-reads their favorite books even if they have just read them? 

Anyways, I just wanted everyone to know that I'M BACK!!

Love y'all!!!!

Today I am old

So today is my Birthday and I am 24, yes I know I am getting old! Lol but yes I really feel like I am.

I am kinda not happy about getting older though, bc I thought I would be so much further along by now. There are so many things that I have yet to do! I need to get on it! Time is slipping away! I thought I would either be married or getting married, wanting to have kids in the near future, have a better job & be advancing in my career. My mom has given me a timeline to giver her grandchildren in well lets just say I only have 2 years left & im not even married yet, lol. But alas those things are not happening right now, but I look forward to the promise of tomorrow!

I am very thankful for all my wonderful family & friends, my job, & the ability to be going back to school!

I'm just excited I get to spend today with my little guy & after I get off work! And yes it stinks to have to work on your birthday :(

Not Here Right Now

I know I haven't been around lately but it's bc I have been super busy with my two little men! Liam turned 1 on Sunday & Alex turned 5 today! We have them for about a month!

If your new around here & dunno who I'm talking about they are my adorable little cousins! I love them as if they were my own & they might as well be bc I have them all the time. So until they are gone I probably won't be on here, I am trying to read y'alls blogs but spending time with them is way more important so I will see y'all sometime!

Have a great day!

It's Ok Thursday

So i'm linking up with Amber and Neely for 

It's ok.....

* To wish that things could be different in my life sometimes

* To sometimes feel alone in this world because I choose to be different

* That I am not reading 50 Shades of Gray, because I feel it is wrong
(I had it, it was emailed to me, but I decided to delete it and not read it)

* To want what my friends have, but to attempt patience

* That I still live at home with my parents and am happy I do

* To block out everything and just live in the world of my books

* To love watching Harry Potter A LOT!!

* To hate doing school work after graduating and now going back to it

* To think about your wedding and pin stuff on Pinterest all the time!

* That this whole post is kinda depressing

* That I love my job, but kinda feel like its a dead end

* That I really wanna further my education but am being lazy right now

I hope you enjoy and have a great day!
