Craft plans&camping memories

So, I cannot believe that this month is the month of my one year with Jeff. Sadly, due to a vacation I am slacking on all the things that I have wanted to make him for gifts. But, I thinkthat this week(After I get paid of course) I will be headed out with a friend to buy the supplies I need to make the things I want for Jeff :). I cannot believe how lucky I am to be with him. He has shown me so much about life, he has always been there when my head is down to help hold it up. Okay, fine I'll save the gushies for the actual day. (But, cant you just tell that I am so excited!!!- minus the fact that he has all of these thigns planned, like my whole day is book, he is picking me up at 12:00 at work&then who knows. That makes me excited to.)

I have so many craft things that I wanna make but that all includes having money first, and as I am trying to save up for a car.. I am trying to limit myself to spending only 20 dollars, maybe every 2 weeks on craft supplies. Its so hard for me to hold onto my money in a craft store!! But I know that I can do it. Especially because I know that the money that I don't spend is going to go towards my very own car:).

As much as I can say that this memorial vacation weeked took away from my crafting time, the weekend was amazing.

&It's not like we did anything special. Well, we did. Visted Assateaque, and I got my ear peirced (tragus- the little flab thing, ahh I don't know how to explain it check google images..lol.), those parts weren't the best. The night that I think I will always remember was Saturday night, at least I think it was Saturday night, could have been Sunday night. Who knows, all vacation days blur together, isn't that what they are supposed to do anyways? Whatever that night was, we sat around the fire, my Dad, me, Mom&Brother. And we talked, and talked, and talked. I learned more about my family that night then I had ever known before. And, I got close to my Dad, again. It was amazing. When my Dad isn't stressed. He is just amazing, so to get away from all that stress, I got to be with my amazing Dad. I love him so much, he is such an amazing man. And as much as I could say that he isn't the Christian man that I want him to be, and that he still cusses, and drinks. I can say that he has changed so much, from his childhood, from a year ago, and from yesterday. That I know that he is trying.. which is all that I can ask for. I know its not going to be easy, just a year ago I was going through the same thing.. and it wasn't like I snapped my fingers and I was ultra Christian. I mean, I am still working on things today. But, I know that all I can do. Is pray, pray for him, and encourage him.. be his rock. I love my Daddy so much. I jsut want him to get teh benefits that I have as a Christian. It breaks my heart to know that he doesn't fully get them.

The smiles from this weekend, the real laughs.. the ones that you can tell just aren't fake, the true happines, hopefully will stay. But I realize that they can go. I just know that I have those memories. And thats all I need to have, because it is those memories that promise hope. That all of this stuff will be over soon. And that those smiles, and laughs, the happiness; that it wont just be for a weekend, but for a lifetime.

OH! So I wanted to blog about this, that way if you know that you want another ear piercing.. or if you know of anyone else that would like one:

If you are getting anyting above your second hole done, make sure you can go to a place, where they will peirce it with a needle. Because the guy that did mine, peirced it with a needle, and it hurt a lot less than my cartilage&half cartilage which were both done with the peircing gun. So, I asked the guy why.. and he told me that anything containg cartilage that is peirced with the gun will spider web shatter the caritalge, so thats why I have had so many problems with my other ones. So yeahh.. just wanted to save you all the pain:) If yuo are looking for a good place, and happen to want to go to OC to get it done, go to funky stuff, 5th street on the board walk. I promise, this guy is a PRO!

I am burnt, and I am sure that there is more to come.. my poool is open!!!! :) Oh, and I have gotten to play with my waterproof camer.. amazing I will post pictures soon.
