Camp-of-the-Woods '10

Everyone says New-York is so magical and alive. They are so right. I LOVE NY!
My family and the Good family all packed up and flew out to Albany NY on Friday. I had a LONG day Friday because we woke up at 4:30 am to pick my sisters up from camp. And I didn't get to sleep till 2:30 am the next day! Thats 22 hours straight of being awake and traveling. I never once had time to close my eyes. Jet lag to the extreme :)
When then stayed that Friday night in a hotel and had to wake up at 7 to catch a ride up to Camp-of-the-Woods. That was about a 2 hour drive. So after ALLLL of the traveling we ARIVED!
So far it has been a blast. Meeting lots of cool people and enjoying the nice weather. The high has been high 70's and in the night it drops down to 40's! Talk about PERFECT weather.
This is one of those places I have always loved growing up going to and I look forward to raising my kids by coming every summer. I met this one couple that played in the band here when they were 15... and they were in their 90's!!! Truly amazing.
My dad rented a boat for the week so we have been doing lots of tubbing. There is also a HUGE gym with tons of games that we have been enjoying. But I would have to say my favorite place is called the TeePee. It where you can go and get all kinds of candy and ice-cream. I have been getting the twist soft serve. By far my favorite.
So this is pretty much life at Camp-of-the-Woods. My favorite place to vacation and has been for 8 years.

I think the title pretty much sums up this post. I them 'em and hate 'em. Buttt.... there is this one guy in particular. I really like him. Like he is the perfect guy. Gorgeous, tall, muscular, christian, and his dad even owns a chick-fil-a :)
The only little problem (okay huge problem) is that he has a freakin girlfriend. This pretty much is the story of my life. I don't know how I can keep talking to him without liking him more and more. He is a flirt and totally knows how to make my day. His girlfriend in my opinion is not the right fit for him. And I'm not even saying I am... but I know he could do better than her. The only song that keeps coming to my head is "You belong to me" by Taylor Swift. And these three lines keep popping in my head...

"If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can't you see?
You belong with me"

Tons of "only if's" keep going through my brain. Like "only if i was prettier", "only if i was as skinny as she is", or even "only if i was her". And I know God is hurt by all these thoughts. I should never wish of hope for something I'm not and never will be. I'm not his girlfriend and may never be. But by wishing I was skinnier or prettier is not going to help the problem. Running back to God is the only was I will ever be able to conquer this.


I have taken a break from blogging and realized I have missed it so much! So much has happened in my life since my last post. Some friends have slipped from my grip but it was all for the better. I have gained so many more friends from my new job! I now am employed at Chick-fil-A at Wesley Chapel. I absolutely love it there! You may be wondering why I'm not working for my dad at the arboretum.. well I just decided this would be a better fit for me. Since then I have been making money and been crazy busy. But its good for me. I am trusting God with everything now. He knows whats going to happen in my future and me worrying about everything isn't helping. I have realized girls are so emotional and dramatic. I have tried to stay out of as much drama as possible.
Let me make a list of what all has happened in my life recently:
1. I have become best friends with girls I disliked a year ago.
2. I'm tan cause... ITS SUMMER!!!
3. I'm officially DONE with sophomore year! :)
4. But.. JUNIOR year here i come.
5. Mark graduated.
6. Mitch came home!
7. I had a blast in Florida last week.
8. Im now a shopping addict.
9. I leave for NEW-YORK tomorrow!!! I am supper excited.
10. I need to go get ready for work :)
So thats pretty much it. I will now blog more often cause after all... I LOVE IT!
