Jamaica....and Other Things

Hey chickadees!
How is everyone?!
It's been awhile, hasn't it?
(Why do I feel like every blog post starts like that..)

You may notice some changes around here, like the name change.
I just decided it wasn't really working for me so I thought I would switch it up.

In other news, 
I just got back from the most amazing vacation EVER!
I went to Jamaica with my adoptive family for five days and it was amazing.
It was my first time being out of the country,
and being on a plane,
and going without my phone for five days,
and my first non-family vacation.
And while I did go with a group of people from work, 
it was still a nice break.
And I can't wait to go back again.
We stayed in Ochos Rios and it was absolutely beautiful. 
So now I shall proceed with the photo dump...

We met at my boss's house at 5:30 in the morning
to get on the shuttle bus. 
(I haven't been to sleep yet)

This was the view out the window in my room.
I was lucky enough to have a first floor room with an ocean view.

The swim-up bar was less than 50 yards off my patio.

The resort itself was built into the hillside so there were a ton of steps,
this is the view of the beach from the top of them.

Dinner the second night.

We did a lot of hanging out on the beach.
And I actually conquered my fear of large bodies of water 
and I waded out into the ocean.

Right before breakfast on our last morning there.

This is actually the only group photo we got.
The girl sitting next to me in the yellow was my roommate for the trip.
We were the only non-couple in the group which was weird since we were at a couples resort.
By the end of the vacation the staff had just taking to calling us the twins.

Overall, it was an amazing trip and I can't wait to go back again!

What I'm Watching

Let's talk TV
or more correctly, Netflix (which may be the greatest invention ever!).
I don't normally have a lot of time during the week to watch TV.
And since I don't have cable, Dish or Directv,
I don't have the option to DVR anything during the week. 
Which isn't normally a big deal because like I said 
I don't usually have a lot of time to watch TV during the week.
But I have a love love love relationship with my Netflix.
So let's talk about what I've been watching.

1. Sons of Anarchy
I've blogged about my love for this show before here.
Well I got bored the other week when I was sick with the flu
and decided to re-watch the first four seasons of the show.
I cannot wait for season six to start.
I've also gotten a girl at work hooked on the show and now we talk about it when work is slow.

2. Hart of Dixie
I saw somebody blog about this show a few weeks ago.
So I checked it out and loved it!
Not only is the main character hilarious and relatable 
but it never ceased to amaze me how clueless she could be.
I also liked that it was set in a small town so I could related to it.

3. Pretty Little Liars
I know I'm really behind on this craze.
But it showed up on my suggested list 
and I figured with how much everyone talks about it I should give it a shot.
I'm obsessed. 
I think I watched the whole first season in 3 days. 
Every episode has a new twist. 

I've also had a couple friends recommend the shows Revenge and Scandal. 
Any thoughts on those two?
I'm probably going to check them out once I finish PLL.

Use To

I use to go out on Friday and Saturday nights, 
and now I sit at home watching movies.

I use to wake up with hangovers on the weekends,
(see above)
and now I wake up feeling refreshed.

I use to know what I wanted to do with my life,
and now I'm contemplating going back to school.

I use to have a large group of fake friends,
and now I have a small group of true friends.

I use to be able to sleep at night,
and now I'm awake until all hours of the night.

I use to want to move across the country,
and now I just don't know.

I use to have better things to write about,
and now I'm just making these crazy lists. 

I use to have long hair,
and then I decided to cut it all off today.

I use to have better things to do with my life,
and now I'm looking at Harry Potter pins on Pinterest.

I use to have a Facebook account,
but then I got tired of my news feed being nothing but
 "Like for this, Share for that, Comment if you love your Mother."


I just realized how absolutely crazy this whole entire post must make me look. 
But then I reminded myself that this is my blog and I can write what I want.

Guess Whose Back

Back again?
Shady's back, tell a friend.

Just kidding... It's just me. 
After a long absence I figured it was time to catch everyone up.
So now I will proceed with a photo dump 
and some typed words.
Hope everyone enjoys.
Also I got the computer fixed so expect more updates....hopefully

The sistas and I at Easter.

 Just a beautiful picture on my drive home for work one night. One of my favorite things about living in the country is being able to experience things like this.
A random bar-hopping night with some friends, Bridgett and Alycia.

 And I've been trying out some new craft beers.
I wasn't a big fan of the Deschutes, but I really like Shift.

Monday Morning

I honestly don't even know the last time I did a weekend recap.
Or a link-up for that matter.
So let's get down to it!
Linking up with Miss Sami for
Let's see...
Went to work. Served some people's some food. Had a nice lunch with my momma.
After work I painted my nails (which now need to be redone thanks to a weekend of work)
Colored my hair (which is still not the color I want it to be)
and called it a night.
Woke up bright and early due to the fact that I was a lameo Friday night.
Bought these adorable little things
I mean really is there anything more adorable than ducklings?!
After getting those guys all settled into their new home I transformed myself from farm girl to working girl and did a little bartending.
I need to locate the nearest tanning bed ASAP!
Worked again.
Dealt with Winter Storm Virgil which dumped a boatload of snow.
Now here it is Monday and I'm at work again.
I have already been awake for entirely too long.
I still have 10 more work hours ahead of me today.
Happy Monday everyone!

Then The Skies Opened Up...

And God said, "I hate you Hannah."
But not really.
It was something more along the lines, of
"I've got this, Hannah. You just need to sit back and trust me."
And that's exactly what I did.
Yesterday, as well as a few days over the past week or so,
have been very trying and extremely difficult.
Yesterday was the worst!
I was convinced that my life was just about to go through another whirlwind.
Fortunately, everything worked out great.
It's amazing what a little faith can do.
