Bye Bye Beach

So I am home and boy do I miss the beach. It has taken me days to adjust back to real life, even though I am still not adjusted fully.

Exciting events of the trip....

Saw Dolphins, watched a guy catch a 4 foot long shovel nose shark, Cow nose rays in droves, caught something that took my fishing line way out to sea and then when it let go my hooks were bent! Ryan caught something big as well but the line broken, had a wonderful two year wedding anniversary, saw family from Illinois, found a sweet saloon on the waterway that I will go back to year after year, and saw loads of ghost crabs which my dog loved chasing.

The day before the beach trip I sold my jewelry at the Market on Main event in Gastonia. I did not sell much and other than being so hot I thought I was going to pass out I did enjoy it. My next event was scheduled for July 10th but I just found out yesterday I will be selling at the Exchange on Main event now too which is this Friday. I will not be able to get off work in tine so my mother in law and my husband have to set my booth up. Oh lord I hope they do a good job!

In other fun news I have been upgraded from guest book attendant to bridesmaid for my friend Stephani's wedding in July! I am very excited and honored she would ask me! I get to see her tonight and get my dress!!!

Beach mode

So I must apologize for not posting, I have been in super lazy mode now that the countdown for our beach trip in on!

Before we go though we have a few events coming up as well as a few that have passed.

First is this Thursday (June 11th). Yours truly will be 30!!!! I do not feel 30, nor do I feel I look 30. I am thinking the 30's will be good for me, but hate that I will be seen as more of an adult!
For my birthday my wonderful husband got me a dremel so I can start experimenting with stones and shells for my jewelry. I did get one hole drilled in a huge shell, that was fun. Since we are going tot he beach I am sure I will bring back 100,000 shells (as usual) to mess with. He is excited his wife likes power tools! He also got tickets to see No Doubt this past weekend. I will tell you what, that was the best concert I have EVER been too. Worth every penny he spent. Now I wish they were coming back through so I could go again.

This coming Friday I also have my second show. I am going to be a vendor at the Market on Main event in Gastonia. I am pretty excited this is the first show since my disastrous one in Cabarrus County months ago. I am bringing around 30 pieces and figure that will be enough, if not I have another event on July 12th at the same place so I will be more prepared on what to do for that one.

After that is a week on the beach. Nothing sounds better than that right now!

In older news that I am horrible at keeping up with right now, I was picked to win the "Lovely Blog" award. I really appreciate it and glad someone likes my blog. I am to pass it on but have not had a lot of time to pick other blogs, but I will get there I promise!
