I got a job!!

I'm so excited!! I finally got a call for a job! And a fantastic job at that! I am the newest ELA teacher at Shoemaker HS in Killeen! HOLY COW!
I'm sososososososososososoooooooooooo excited for this opportunity. I have no idea on any details yet, but I will know more on Monday.

Oh? Best part? The school is like... 2 blocks away from Carlos' house! I may actually get to see my boyfriend on a near daily basis, instead of this once a week nonsense.

On a separate but related note, if I know you in real life (like spoken to you face to face) and you read my blog, don't use it to spy on me... I know who you are and you irritate me to no end. Oh... And your stuff? I'll get to it eventually... I'm busy being an adult... Maybe you should try it out sometime...

After that little tidbit of negativity... Back to the swooning over my job! I start on August 12th, meaning I have to cut waaaaaaay back on my shenanigans at Denny's. I love my current job, but I'm so ready to actually start my career. Career.... What an adult word... O_O The best part? This is just one more step on my road to funky-dom! Goodbye chunky!

Happy Birthday dear Carlos!

For my sweet boyfriend's birthday (which I've been planning since June!) I took him on a little overnight trip to Schlitterbahn! It was the absolute most fun I've had in a very long time. We got to spend some serious quality time together. We laughed, goofed off, joked and just generally had a blast.

I didn't manage to get too many pictures, because... Well... Water park + iPhone = disaster.

Here's a recap of our trip!

We left my parent's house around 6:30... Stopped at Denny's (yes... my Denny's) for some breakfast. We arrived at the park around 9:30 and they were already letting people in the gates! Woo! We rode some rides, walked a ton, climbed steps, swam, and had a fantastic time. Around noon we trekked out to the car for some much needed turkey wraps, chips and string cheese. Nom nom. After lunch we ventured back to the park and lounged in a hot tub to let our food settle. Around 4 we started getting hot and crabby, so we ventured to the hotel for showers and dinner. Dinner at Olive Garden was AMAZING! I had a watermelon margarita and the chicken scampi. Nom nom. After dinner we went to Chilis for dessert... and by dessert I totally mean margaritas and chocolate lava cake.

The next day we woke up and ventured back to the Austin area. We stopped at BJ's Brewhouse for lunch and trolled the outlet mall for a bit. Then on to Georgetown for snowcones and finally home.

It was the best trip I've had. Carlos told me that it was also the absolute best birthday he'd ever had. That's what I was shooting for :)

I also got him a cupcake... But it melted in the car... Oops..  Oh well... Here are the pictures I did manage to snap!
Not a very good picture... But at the water park!

Snow Cones!! Nom nom nom!

Not sure if you've noticed, but I kinda love this guy :)

Cara Box Reveal!

So... I'm a bit of a dunce...

I forget to do the most basic, everyday tasks.. Like check my mail. I have to actually go to the post office, so unless I drive by, I don't even think about it. 

That's why my blog is late. It took me a bit to check my mail... And once I checked it, I got distracted by something shiny and forgot to take pics and post. Oops. 

So... Here is my box from the lovely lovely Sydney! I am OBSESSED with the journal! It's definitely going in a safe place :) oh and the soap is all natural and made from goat's milk! How effin cool is that!! Thanks Sydney! You're awesome sauce!!
