Social Realist

 This weekend gave me a little down time to actually catch up on blog reading--and I was so thankful!  The blog community has given me so much inspiration and strength to get through these past few weeks (I've just got too much stuff on my plate...)

One of the sweet bloggers that I just love, is Jenna from Dearest Love , and she shared a fun personality test last week.  I thought it was such a fun personality test, so I had to take it myself. 

Here are my results:

"Social Realists are popular persons full of energy. They are reliable, well organized and helpful. Traditional values are important to them. Founding a family also plays a central role in their life.  Social Realists have a marked social streak.

They are always ready to listen to the worries and problems of others and spare no effort when they are asked for help. With empathy and understanding, they can sense what other people need. Social Realists are always willing to highly regard the strong points of the other person and to excuse that person’s weaknesses. They are the most sociable of all personality types. Social contacts are very important to them.

Social Realists find it very difficult to cope with conflicts and criticism - harmony is their elixir of life. Acknowledgement and esteem are very important to this type. Setting boundaries on the other hand is not necessarily one of their strong points. At work and in partnerships, they are loyal, committed and always there when needed. They find it easy to make friends due to their open, warm manner and they have a large circle of friends. In love, they are faithful and attentive and care for their partners with a great deal of imagination and sensitivity. Social Realists show their feelings openly and honestly. Should a relationship break up, they tend to blame themselves. That is why they find it very difficult to end a partnership even if it has not fulfilled their requirements for some time."

Make sure to go and take your own Personality Test.  Let me know what you get!

Thankful - Easter reminders

Last weekend was a rough week for me-the first week back from Spring Break always is.  For a day or two, I even regretted going on Spring Break, since I didn't have time to do anything productive when I got home.  :( 

I'm so thankful for a Sunday off of work, to spend with family.  Church was wonderful, and then Andrew and I had lunch with my family.  This Easter Sunday reminded me how much I have, and I am so thankful!

Happy Easter, friends!

Tailgate Wedding Shower - The Details!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of co-hosting a tailgate themed wedding shower for my best friend and her fiance!  She wanted a shower that her fiance could be involved in--so we thought a co-ed tailgate shower would be the perfect idea!  Plus, they're both huge sports fans! 

I had every guest write a "play" (marriage advice) for a "marriage playbook" that I'll soon put together for them...

We had game-day food (hamburgers/hot dogs) with all the fixings, chips, and cookie cake--the brides favorite!


We had a photobooth for all of the guests--we even had some football helmets/props to use!

I think the beer pong and corn hole were the game winners, though!  Everyone had such a great time!

Before the bride and groom opened their gifts, we played a game of "The Newlyweds" with the bride/groom and their parents.  IT was so fun!!

Overall, I think it went really well, and I'm so excited for the soon to be newlyweds!

Take Me Back...

...to Spring Break!! PLEASE!?

My spring break wasn't long enough.  Okay, okay...don't get me wrong - I know I should be grateful I got a spring break.  I just wish I stayed the whole week at the beach...and that we actually got some sun. Boo cloudy/windy/rainy weather!  (#whitegirlproblems ?)

My girlfriends and I met at Starbucks early Sunday morning, to get some coffee drinks (hello, free coffee!!!), and then we were off to the beach! Fripp Island, SC was BEAUTIFUL, and I wish I was still there! 

We spoke in hashtags. We playing lots of grown up games.  We drove a golf cart and we spent time out on the beach in cloudy weather.  We gossiped and read magazines.  We saw LOTS of wild deer and alligator. It was wonderful to be with girlfriends!

I stayed until Wednesday, and then had to come home to get some hours in at Panera.  As bummed as I was to leave early, I was thankful for the time I had there, and grateful to be back home with Andrew and pups!

Wired by ALP

Instagram is probably the main social media outlet that I keep up with daily.  As much as I like to check facebook and twitter, there's always something I'll miss.  But instagram!?  I usually scroll alllllllll the way down until I've seen every picture posted since I last checked it. (Someone tell me I'm not the only one?)

A few weeks ago, I saw someone share their awesome jewelry they just got from Wired by ALP.  I was hooked---when can I get some?  Wired by ALP sells/shares her jewelry soley on instagram, and is doing a great job! Look at these beautiful options:

I ordered my jewelry immediately! Count me in for a monogram necklace and ring!!  I can't wait to order more from here soon!

Oh, and before you run away...make sure you're following Wired by ALP on instagram.  She's running a giveaway through TOMORROW! Act fast!

**I recieved my jewelry in exchange for my review in this post.  But I tell you, I'm OBSESSED with my jewelry, and think you should get some!
