Week of H & A

People are probably wondering why I have been so MIA. Well, I have spent the past week with Haig. He came over to PEI last Monday, we drove to Nova Scotia on Friday and I will be leaving to go home tomorrow. This is the longest we have been together in quite some time and we have certainly made the most of it. We have had a lunch date, breakfast date, movie date, ice cream date, shopping trips and nice walks. We also had a nice drive over here the other day. He makes a good travel companion! We hung out with my friends on PEI, went dancing, went to a YSA dance in Halifax and hung out with both of our families as well. Haig also had the opportunity to speak at stake conference last night (church gathering/meeting). He did a fantastic job and I am very proud of him. It is finally sinking it that he is leaving in a few short months for two years. I am realizing how lonely I am going to get, but I do know that it will all be worth it in time. Haig also wore a bow tie last night and it looked awesome.
I love the boy with the bow tie. :)

Media and Society

I type this while I am sitting in my spring course of Media and Society. It is a third year sociology course that I am taking because it looked really interesting. I am in my 4th class today and I have already learned so much. One thing that we have been talking about is content analysis. Pay attention to what you are watching on TV. How people act, their body language and what they say. It can get quite interesting to realize.
Just for thought :)
Happy Thursday!

The past couple of days has been filled with relaxing, school and work. And no school as you can see in one of the pictures. The second class of a six week course was cancelled. And I got all the way to school to find that out. Lucky for me I had to pay the rest of my tuition anyways so I guess it works. Last night I got to work with my best RBK girl Ellen. She's a mighty gem. I also got to see my friend Kayla a little later in the night so it made for a good day. I'm off to work this morning to work all day and then I get to enjoy a nice sabbath day tomorrow. Unfortunately I work Monday, when Haig gets here but I have the rest if the week off for the real party! Woohoo! What are you doing for your long weekend? :)

HAIR evolution

Hey guys, having a little dilemma as of lately called 'My hair'.  I have finally learned how to style it how I want it by blow drying and then running the curling wand through it to get soft wavy looking curls... but something still isn't right.  I have wanted my hair to be long for awhile now and it is still not at the perfect long length that I would like it at but I am getting bored of my hair.  Or maybe it has something to do with my non-existent bangs, the big chunk of hair that goes down to past my ear.  
So taking suggestions, what to do with my hurrrrr?!

Weird Day, Weird Mood

Today has not been as weird of a day as much as my mood is right now.  It has actually been a pretty good day.  I went to hot yoga with my best friend Casey.  It was nice and challenging and it gave me time to ponder the things that have been on my mind.  I also picked Kayla and Mom up today and we took a little trip to Home Depot to pick out keys for our new dead bolt on the door.  While we were leaving, a man waved to us in the parking lot and told us our tire was looking pretty low on air.  He was right.  We got to the closest gas station and Mom and I filled the tire with air.  When we had left home depot I asked mom if she knew how to put air in the tire (I luckily do, but I was not sure if she knew how).  She nervously said that she was not really sure.  But we figured it out once we got there and I am thankful for the man who waved us down to tell us.
Tonight I just chilled out.  And when I say 'chilled out', I watched 2 episodes of 90210 and I am currently streaming 'The Vow' to watch one my homemade pizza treatza is created.
I am also missing my boy a lot and wishing this rain would go away.  Don't get me wrong though, I love what it does to the beautiful little island that I like on, however I do not like frizzy hair and driving in the rain.  It is no fun.
May showers bring June flowers?..... not true. our yard is starting to look like dandelion central.

6 days into May

So, six days into the month of May and it has been a blast so far.  I had such a great time in Nova Scotia with Haig and the rest of the Pinsent clan.  Things get a little wild with them sometimes, but it always ends up being a good time with lots of laughter.

Haig and I went to Halifax for the day on Wednesday and we had lunch with my good friend Brittany.  That girl never ceases to amaze me.  She is so dedicated to school and she is one of the funniest people I know.  Everyone has at least one friend with a contagious laugh.  That laugh that when it starts, you start laughing because it is just great.  Brittany has that laugh and I love her for having one.  I love having her in my life, she is such a sweetheart!

I also got the chance to go to the Temple with Haig on Thursday night.  I will admit that it was not my most favorite experience there for a number of reasons, but I still loved being there and feeling the spirit that it holds.

I came home on Friday and I enjoyed the rest of my day with my lil' sister Kayla.  We did some shopping and had some catch up time.  On Saturday, I got to work the full day at Reebok.  I have decided to stay there to work this summer because it is such a great job to have right now, I don't think I am ready for anything else, but I will hopefully be by next summer.

Today being Sunday, I went to out lovely Ward for church.  There were great lessons learned and great appreciation felt for the building that we have to meet in and all of the wonderful people I get to see every week.

And now, I have reached the second week of May... This week holds working a little bit, getting stuff done to get money to go to school, going to Hot Yoga (I have not gone in forever!) and hopefully hanging out with lovely friends along the way!
