my fun weekend.

Helloooo
I had another great weekend..Friday I just took it easy with my friend Amanda and we went to the movies to see 5 year engagement..it was so funny! Definitely a must see! Then I heard on the radio that a BBQ Cook off in Lexington was on Saturday. So me & Amanda decided to go! It was a lot of fun. Hunter Hayes a new country singer performed..he's a cutie!! There were a lot of teenage girls there and so excited to see him. The BBQ was pretty good and they had 5 different wine vineyards there so I sampled some and bought a bottle of wine called Summer Breeze. Tonight (Sunday) I had a fashion show for Belk. It was a silent auction for American Heart Association. It was really fun and simple.

Here are some photos!

little miss crafty.

happy hump day!

 I've had a great day..I hope everyone else has! I went to Winston with my mom..she had to do something for her NEW job she is starting in a few weeks!! I'm so happy for her! She's a hard working CNA who deserves more appreciation then she gets. Then we met her good friend, Robin and her precious little girl, Lily Grace. We ate at Qdoba Mexican grill. Then we went to Michaels...ahhh I could stay in there for hours! I bought a distressed frame that was normally $40 for $16! I bought another cork board, a small frame, lace and some embellishments for my journal. After a few hours we went to Home Goods and Ross. Ross is like TJ Maxx so I love going there too..I found 2 cute tops and they had a dog section...sooo we have a new addition to the Beaver house hold, Abbe Rae. She is a 7 week old chihuahua who we already love! I bought her a new bed and a cute dress. Then we went home because I didn't want to leave Abbe in the bathroom for a long time. She loved her new bed but she is already spoiled and wants to stay in my bed. After an hour nap I went to making my earring holder! It only took me 5 minutes! It's adorable & so cheap to make!! I'm starting to love making crafts!

Here are a few pics of my new baby and my recent project...oh & my cute shirts ;)

my style.

So its been a pretty boring Tuesday...
I woke up had my morning coffee and some yogurt then did some laundry. I felt sick on my stomach all day so I've been in pajamas all day....& its 4:00 in the afternoon and I'm still in my pajamas.. so yeah. nothing exciting but I thought I would blog about something. So I ordered some adorable earrings from Fossil..I hate wearing earrings but these are 2 different studs, one is a lock & the other a key. I LOVE Fossil watches. I own 4 different kinds. I can't get enough of them!! Fossil is one of my favorite stores.
My style is very vintage and earthy. I love browns, tans, burnt orange and reds. I could shop in a vintage thrift shop all day.

Here are a few of my favorite outfits & my watches & new pair of earrings :)

Lets get crafty!!

 I mentioned earlier that I'm addicted to Pinterest!! But before I discovered Pinterest, I've always loved looking at peoples blogs who were very creative. Like photography, art, weddings and DIY crafts. I love it!! Now I'm hooked on Pinterest and I look at it daily...my first project was yarn Easter eggs. Then I made a necklace holder and an earring holder. They turned out really good!! I thought about making them for others and maybe selling them or I will make gifts for my family and friends. I'm so excited to start this..since I model and I don't work everyday then I have some free time so what matter way to spend my time?! making crafts!! One day when I own my first home, I can't wait to make furniture and frames!

So heres a pic of my first project and steps of how to do the jewelry holders!


:)
  • Cut fabric to fit around the cork board. 
  • Use fabric glue to glue around the edges. Let dry.
  • Place cork board in picture frame. 

Michaels Craft store: 16x20 cork borad & frame, fabric, and glue



  • Blow up balloons the size of an egg.
  • Mix flour and glue or mod podge in a bowl.
  • Dip yarn or string in the bowl. Be sure to make a coil in the yarn or string because it will knot up!
  • Wrap yarn or string around the balloon.
  • Let dry over night.
  • Pop the balloon the next day.





"never give up on someone that you can't go a day without thinking about"




Hello! I've been MIA..sorry about that!! I had a photo shoot for Belk.com last Friday in Pineville, NC. I work with them a lot! They are a great team to work with, the days are very easy! So Ethan lives in Charlotte which is really close to Pineville so I stayed with him for the weekend. It was so nice to get away from Mount Airy and stay in Charlotte. I could never live in Charlotte unless I had to...its too much traffic for me! So Friday night we just hung out at his apartment. On Saturday we went to Cracker Barrel and had a late breakfast then we went to see The Lucky One with Devin and Amelia. We are all really close friends and we've been through a lot together. They are a very cute and close couple who will soon be married! I can't wait!! Amelia and I always planned out our wedding..I knew she would be the first one to be married!! I'm so happy for them! Then we all went to dinner at Mi Pueblos..that was a funny night. I had a jumbo margarita so I don't need to stay anything else ;) then we went back to the apartment and I fell asleep quick!! Sunday we slept in and it was a rainy and nasty day so we went to eat lunch and went to Michaels and I bought some things to make a necklace holder that I found the idea on Pinterest (I'm obsessed with that website!!!!) anyway, Ethan was very helpful during the project..it was precious. So after the finish product I was ready to go back because I was so excited! But we decided to stay in. My cousin Jenny and her boyfriend Jon came in Sunday night from the beach so I met them for dinner while Ethan had to meet with his group to work on a project which lasted for 4 hours. So I hung out at his place and cleaned his much needed room and downloaded some new music till he came home. Then we watched a movie on Netflix and passed out. So today I came home and I just arrived...oh i bought a MAC BOOK PRO!!! I'm using it right now..I'm so excited and thankful that I FINALLY bought one! So I will be blogging a lot more. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

what a weekend...

Hello...so I guess I lied when I said I was going to blog EVERYDAY. I see now why bloggers blog every now & then. My life isn't that exciting to blog about it everyday anyway. So with that said...I hope everyone had a great weekend! I definitely did!! Friday, my family and I made kabobs and put them on the grill..YUMMY..they were de-lish!! Then a few friends came over for a few hours and we stayed on our front porch & had a great time! On Saturday, my parents went out of town to VA to see their close friends. I stayed home and decided to clean my bedroom..so after I got  bored with that I went to my little cousin, Weslee's baseball game. He played very well! I'm so proud of him. He's such a smart and sweet boy. My ex Ethan came to watch him..they are really close!! Wes looks up to Ethan a lot because Ethan was very athletic in school.
 One reason I fell for him so hard..he was the quarterback, pitcher, and point guard...so he had it all. BUT that wasn't the only reason I fell in love with him..he's very humble and kind to everyone. He's a Christan, family orientated, and sweet..what more can a girl want!? We were 17 and in LOVE.  We had it all..prom queen and king and the perfect couple in our grade. I have been in love with him since I saw him at East Surry when our elementary schools competed against each other. I told my friends that he was going to be my boyfriend and I was right..that next year when our schools joined in one at Pilot Mountain Middle school I had him. But we were young so we didn't date long. He dated some of my friends which made me jealous but I didn't let him bother me..I focused on myself and he focused on sports. Then when we were Juniors in high school I knew he was the one..he FINALLY asked me to be his girlfriend on my front porch after a homecoming dance. I was so excited that I ran in the house and woke my parents up. ohhh young love. When we graduated he went off to college at UNC-C in Charlotte. I went to NY to pursue career in modeling. We made it last a few years then I hit a rough patch and broke things off..it was the hardest thing to do. Looking back I didn't think any of it through. I wasn't happy with myself for a while. I ran to NY and didn't look back till I ran out of money and had to come back home to all of the memories. They were all in my house. I couldn't breathe at times and my chest hurt...my mom said that's what it feels like when you have a broken heart. I never believed in that till he moved on. I was happy for him and wished the best for him. After months went on and stupid phone calls and text messages we finally decided to meet and become friends. When I saw him..it had been more than 6 months and all of those feelings that I had for him in 5th grade came back. We are taking things very slow and we have a lot to work out..So that's my love life in a nut shell.
So after Wes's game Ethan and I went to the grocery store and bought some chicken. I planned to make him dinner...for the FIRST time. I was nervous but I made him help ;) we had Chicken Alfredo pasta, bread, salad and asparagus. I have to say that it turned out really good! I was proud of myself. Then we just hung out for a while and went to Starbucks and Wal*Mart...fun times. Then on Sunday I waited for my parents to get home so I met my family at Libby Hill for my papa's birthday. We ate lunch and then I went to Ethan's house to hang out with him & his family..they still treat me the same which I love..they are the best! We went to eat at Little Italy in King then Ethan had to go back to school. He will graduate May 12th. I'm very proud of him!! He's my little banker! He's very smart in finance and all of that..I hated math! ugh!!
Well yesterday and today have been pretty boring. I've spent most of the day with my lovely mother! We have been cleaning out our house and getting our work out on!..fun fun!!

Hope everyone had a good day!

Here are some pics of my weekend!!! :)

Today has been  a good day! I started off with a cup of coffee and some fruit. I had another doctor appointment this morning in Dobson so I went to eat lunch with my friend, Santana at Surry Community college. It was student appreciation day so there was free hot dogs and hamburgers, my favorite! Then I went home and took a nap..one of my favorite things to do. I always say I'm going to sleep for 30 minutes which always turns into 3 hours. Finally I woke up and went to a school plays that 2 of my cousins were in. It was so cute and funny!! I'm so proud of them. After the play we all went to eat at Tlaquepaque and laughed over a few times when someone forgot their lines in the play. Now I'm back home cuddled up in my bed watching a movie. Goodnight.

Happy Thursday.



Tomorrow is FRIDAY.
Ready for a sunny weekend.

here are a few pics from the play

I had the best day with you today...

I had the best day with my mother today. My morning started off bad because I poured a cup of coffee and realized we were out of milk. So my mom suggested we go on a little road trip to this old general country store in Danbury, NC called Priddy's. So off we go..we put the address in the GPS and in 25 miles we made it! It was a very curvy drive, so once we arrived we wanted to relax. There were so many old signs telling what they had in the store. So we walked in and were the only customers there. We bought a coke in glass bottle and a Starbucks mocha (I had to have some kind of coffee!) We didn't stay long because we can't sit still for a long period of time. My mom wanted to go a different way back home so we decided to go through King and we ended up at the Dario-o to eat lunch, we split a hot dog combo and I had a chocolate milkshake! Yummy! We went to a few stores in King..like the goodwill which we call the "GW" but we didn't have any luck. Finally we made it home and I started to make some cupcakes for my friend, Andrew. Then I walked 25 mins on our treadmill...shew..I haven't walked in forever. People think I'm in shape because I'm a model but honestly I'm not at all. I LOVE to eat. Now that it's Spring so I'm going to walk everyday!
Well I'm going to watch American Idol...go Phillip Phillps!

Happy Wednesday!!
I'm very excited about this weekend coming up.

Here are a few pics of my day.

Enjoy!

Get to know me.

 Hey! This is my first time as a blogger. I'm very excited to start blogging about my life. I'm new at this so be patient! I hope to have a lot of followers. I recently turned 22. Time has flown by. This year has been the hardest year of my life, so with that said I'm moving forward and I'm going to enjoy life! So if you want to get to know me, then here are a few things about myself; I enjoy spending time with my amazing family who support me in whatever I do, I love to laugh and have a good time and I'm a dreamer who wants to succeed in everything I do. My passion is modeling, I've been a model since I was 14. I'll never forget the first time I walked into a modeling agency and my heart was beating so fast with excitement and I knew that this was what I was here to do. I've had some great and bad memories with it, but I know its what I want to do and I love going to work with a smile on my face. Many people think modeling is a glamorous life to live but its very hard work. I'm a very patient person, which is a good thing in the modeling world because my days usually last 12 hours. I love my life!
That's enough for now..enjoy.




Happy Monday!

Hope you had a great Easter.

here are a few pics of my Easter weekend.
