What's been going on...

Well hello!

It's been awhile since I've posted...well at least since I've posted a "normal" post. The last post was an attempt to meet a nice guy...however that didn't work out. Oh I didn't meet a bad guy...I just didn't meet a guy. That's okay though, I'll just keep waiting for one to come along. I trust God will bring that man into my life when He is good and ready to...He knows my needs best after all.'s been pretty normal here. Just working...and...well...working. I think I work to much. :) Oh well helps pay what little bills I have at the moment and adds to the savings too.

On the plus side, I bought some plane tickets!!! I'm going to go and see my big sister and her family and meet Baby V for the first time!!! I can't wait! I don't have to much longer, since I'm going at the end of March, but I will say since I have bought the tickets that the days seem to be going slower.

Oh and I might also get to be a model for a bridal shop that recently opened nearby! How exciting is that! I was at a BNI meeting with my boss and was talking with the owner of the shop and out of the blue she asked if I'd be a model! I said sure! I think that the photo's are going to be used in a spread in a local bridal magazine that would be a cool thing.

I guess that's pretty much it. Until next time...which is hopefully sooner than later, but I make no promises.

All the Single Men...

Hi! I'm Jennifer!

I'm 28, and live in the St. Louis Metro Area.

I have a degree in Graphic Design. I currently work for a photographer and love it! I also work at Kohls, which is fun at times.

I love art! I have always been interested in it since I was a little girl. I have a lot of art and crafts that I like to do when I have time, such as painting, scrap-booking (but not the crazy - scrap-every-detail-of-my-life kind), and photography...oh, I also make jewelry out of dominoes.

One of my favorite Oil Paintings!
I also play the guitar....well kinda. :) I took lessons in college, but it's been awhile since I've played. It's something I would love to get back into (so if you can teach me that'd be great!).

I like to play video games, board games, card games...I just like games. I love to get a bunch of my friends together and have game nights...with good food. Speaking of good food...I love to cook, and my family and friends really like the things that I make. One of their favorites is the home-made mounds bars.

That's me on the right...having a great time!!!

 I'm very involved at my church. I teach a 4-6 year old Sunday School Class, as well as Puggles - the 2&3 year old group in AWANA. I also am part of the choir, and enjoy singing.

 I'm looking for a man that loves the Lord and desires to raise a family based on biblical principles. Church fellowship is important to me and I would hope it would be to him also. I don't have any children, but look forward to starting a family one day.  I'd like a man that is funny and spontaneous. Someone that likes to do anything from watching a movie at home, to going out for mini-golf or bowling. I'm not looking for someone who smokes or drinks. A man who has a little of a romantic side, and is chivalrous.
Me and my niece!!!

If you are, or know someone who would be interested, comment below.

Let me just say...I *HATE* being put in awkward situations...especially when the other person involved is someone I am going to see occasionally. It's not so bad when your probably never going to see the person again, as is the case with awkward situation #1:

I had one random guy walk up to me (at work mind you) and tell me that I look good, it was a little awkward, but not so bad. I was flattered, but if you know me at all, you know it was a bit awkward.

Situation #2 happened today when a guy that I know, that is old enough to be my father...asked if I wanted to go to the movies with him sometime....uhhh...uhh...yep that basically what I said...(that and I don't know...). WHY CANT I JUST SAY NO!!! Umm, or better yet, "Thank You, I'm flattered, but your not my type." Now this is going to make things very awkward anytime I see him.

What's a girl to do?

It's January 5th...

...And I am doing HORRIBLE at keeping up with any of my goals, and by horrible...I mean not at all. I really need to get it together and get on track!

What I really need to do is come up with a plan, or a schedule...or something. Anyone have any good pointers??

New Year, Same Goals

Happy New Year!!!

I'm so ready for a fresh start! As most people do, I have set some goals that I would like to accomplish...of course they seem to be the same as the ones I made last year.

My Goals:

First & Foremost - to be drawn closer to God and to be in His Word daily. To trust in Him for ALL things in my life, and to continue to do His will for my life.

Second - to create more art, and possibly start an Etsy shop...

Third - to be more healthy and exercise on a regular basis. I would like to lose a few pounds so that I don't have to buy new clothes, I like the ones I have and hate that they are fitting kinda tight.

Forth - to blog more - I'm making no promises on this one...but it's goal.

That's it pretty basic. What are some of your goals? I hope you will be able to accomplish some of them!
