Its Beginning To Look A Lot Like....


It is actually snowing right now as I type this. I am sitting at work waiting for Julie to come back so I can go on Court Runs. Anyways, Thanksgiving went very well, Surprisingly with all of 31 people at my house. Everything went very smoothly and everyone left with full bellies & warm hearts =) We finished the night off watching Wall-e (amazing movie!) I have officially watched it 4 times now and plan on more.

On Friday I was going to get up bright & early and join everyone else with their Black Friday shopping madness but for some reason I could not muster myself out of bed, I don't know if it was from all the food I ate the day before or the fact that my bed was extremly warm and I knew my pathfinder was not. Although I did manage to get out of bed at 4:00 a.m. sit down at the computer and ordered almost all of Anthony's gifts online and ordered myself the Under Armour sweatshirt I was going to buy but for sure was gone in the store from all the early shoppers. I also got free shipping on everything I ordered! Around 3:00 I went into Aunt Lori & Uncle Matts and picked up Molly (18 months) and we went shopping. She is so much fun to bring along and I am pretty sure she had a blast. Anthony came over to their house when he got off of work and we had dinner with them and then went back to my house.

Saturday was my scrabook/craft day. I got 2 picture frames altered and finished altering the card board kids book I bought at the the Dollar Tree. As soon as it is done I will post the pictures on here. Saturday Anthony & I went to Aubrey's house for supper and movies. We rented The Longest Yard and for some reason I could not stay awake for any of it.

Yesterday, I slept in until 11:30, it felt GREAT! Although I missed church, oops. Around 2:00 I went over to Anthony's. We played with his critters for a while, made a fire in the wood burner and he taught me to make bullets. At first I didn't know how it was going to go but it was so much fun I wouldn't let him make any. We ate dinner and watched Wall-e (again) and I went home at 10:30.

Today I woke up at 7:30, got on the computer for a while, took a bath, watched some tv and got ready for work. I went to Tim Hortons and got a bagel for lunch, I know not the healthiest meal but they are so delicious! Tonight I get off of work at 4:00 and have swimming right afterwards until 5:00. Practice is short tonight because there is a meet right after ours. We also have our first meet tomorrow against Watkins at home. It will be my last first meet!

Well I guess I will probably post some pictures on here tomorrow!

Well the Bucks won! =)

My day was kinda just whatever i felt like doing kind of day. Mom had to work this morning and Dad & Jk were working on my new car so I got to spend the day by myself. Sounds really boring but it was much needed. I wasn't by myself the whole day, Anthony brought me lunch and we watched the game together and just spent some time together. O-yeah he also brought me some firewood and made a fire for me in the fireplace, which was wonderful! Before he got here I cleaned the living room completely since we are having Thanksgiving at our house next weekend. After he left I worked on my bedroom for a while...which I still haven't finished. I am still trying to get all my scrapping/craft stuff downstairs to my Scrapbook Studio. Which I have probably been doing since like January. It is just so hard because when I feel like doing something quick or don't feel like being downstairs I bring a little bit of stuff up to my room and do it in there. I really need to nick that habit. I browsed on some blogs today, tried to catch up with reading the blogs.

Right now I am waiting on Anthony to get off of work and come get me. Who knows what we will do tonight, probably just stay here and watch whatever is on tv. Tomorrow he finally has a day off which will be absolutely great! I think we are going to Buckeye Outdoors so he can get some more hunting gear for next weekend.

We got our warm ups and everything at swim practice last night. Our swim boosters finally got us new gear. The old stuff was 15 yrs old so it was much needed. We got some awesome bags, and warm ups that aren't that swooshy material that everyone wore in the late 80s (no offense I am sure I would have worn them then) we also got a free t-shirt to keep since we ordered from this company!

Today I also joined a book club on Facebook. I have a major obsession with Nicholas Sparks books. They are amazing! and I own every book he has written.

Well I am going to get off of here and try to finish cleaning my room but i will prolly ending up reading blogs or looking around on everyone have a great weekend!



Today is the big game! Ohio State vs. Michigan
I am actually watching it right now with my boy ;)
Just thought I would update while its on commercial =)

Update on game later

The Past Month..or more

Hello Everyone!
well I know I haven't posted on here in forever. I am trying to get back to this, we'll have to see how it works out. So this is pretty much how the end of fall has been going for me. From the weiner roast for my Mom since she passed her state nursing boards to going to the Crew soccer game with Anthony and his brothers & Mom. We were defintally lucky to have a long fall or I guess it would be an Indian Summer. It is just started snowing this week and it is suppose to all weekend =) I will leave you with some pictures.
Love Always,

Anthony & I over at Dillon enjoying the last few days of fall. Surprisingly it was extremly warm.

This is my Moms cake that my Aunt Lori made for her since she graduated from the RN program and passed her state boards. This was the cake that we had for her surprise party.

Hey Everyone!
wow I can't believe how long it has been since I was on here last (2months+) that is crazy. I have been so busy. Mostly in the months of June, July and August I was really busy working. We had the county fair in August...I didn't really good with all my projects. I started school September 3rd. I am only there for 4 periods since I have all my credits to graduate. I took a class called CBI, I am able to leave school early but I have to go to work. The only downfall of this class is I don't see any of my friends anymore. My homebase and 1st & 2nd period classes are CBI kids then I have English which is also all CBI kids. For 4th period I have government which is a regular class but not very many of my friends are in there. I did get a really good job at Micheli Baldwin Northrup Attorney Office. I answer phones while the receptionist goes to lunch then when she gets back since our office is located on the North end of town and the court house is downtown I have to take all the paper work downtown. I am considered a "runner". I love working there. There are 8 attorneys in the building each with an assistant, there is also an archtitect firm, and 2 other companies in the building I answer the phones for.

As far as my Senior Year is going I am having alot of fun. I had my last homecoming dance 2 weeks ago. Then this friday night was our last home football game and it was senior night. At the end of the game all the seniors held hands and walked the field, it was really sad!

This weekend Jillian and I went to Bowling Green State University for the pre-view day. Jillian and I have been going to school together since kindergarden. We went to St. Thomas together all the way up until 7th grade. In the 8th grade we both switched to Tri-Valley. We are both seriously considering going to BGSU together. We will also get to room together which would be great! The only thing is that BG is 3 hrs away, but it really didn't seem that far away. I am still stuck with the big decission of going away or not.

Well talk to everyone here soon. the next update will defintally have some pics to go with it.

Peace <3 Britt

A New Me and some vaca

Well right before we left I had a to get a hair cut and needed it badly. My hair hasn't really grown well over the last year or so and it has gotten really thin. I had original intentions of having long hair but since it hasn't worked out the greatest I decided I would try going shorter. Lets just say it is the shortest I have ever had my hair since I was a little girl ( 3 years old) and I have to say that I actually like it and am considering keeping my hair like this. I thought Anthony wasn't going to like it either but he does like it too, so it is all good.

On another note, we just got back from vacation on saturday morning. We had to leave early because we had a wedding to go to for my cousin and my brother was in it. The rest of the family got to stay an extra day at the beach and everything. The trip was so much fun and I can't wait til we get to go back. I am seriously considering living in the Outerbanks. Anthony really likes it down there so maybe one day that is where we will be. My parents also like it down there so it won't be that bad being away from home. Anyways we spent most of the days at the beach or in the pool at our house. One day when all the guys rented a boat and went fishing my Mom, Aunt Lori, Cousin Bri, Aunt Norma and I all went to the Currituck Lighthouse and wandered over to the Whalehead Club and there was an art show going on so that was a pleasant surprise and I also got some great pictures at the Whalehead Club. On thursday we all packed up and went to the 4X4 beach and spent the day there. We had the kayaks, a surf board, and boogey boards and just had a blast. This trip was defintally amazing. So here are some pictures that some of you might enjoy.

Great Kickoff for Summer '08

Well these past weeks have been a pretty good kickoff to hopefully an eventful summer. All last week I worked but it was absolutely great because I only work mornings from 9-1:30 or 2:00 and people don't really start coming til about noon or so. After work I would hang around til Anthony either got done with class or work. We went fishing a few times and on Friday we went to the zoo! That was alot of fun...but we both agreed that it wasn't near as fun as it was when we were little. Maybe it will be better when we have kids of our own to take ( which will be a long time from now!) On saturday my friend aubrey had her graduation party and we went to that and stayed all night there with her and her boyfriend. It was alot of fun. On sunday we went to 7:00 a.m. mass to avoid the Gus Macker crowd and then went fishing for the rest of the day. Today I had work and it wasn't bad because I got to work with Jillian. After work I went and layed out at Grandpa and Grandma Kuhns pool, it is a never ending job getting rid of these stupid one-piece tan lines from guarding. Tomorrow I work morning shift and then I am going to Jillian's house and I guess we will just have to see what we get into from there. The next week could be pretty busy. We have a wedding to go to on Saturday and then I work all next week and Friday the 13th we are heading for the Outerbanks! Can't wait! Hope everyone stays safe and has a great week
<3 Always

My Dream and Obsession

As some of you may know but I am not sure if I have ever really mentioned anything on here my dream is to one day become a photographer. technically I could start doing it now but I don't think it would be the smartest thing to do while I am a Senior in High School. My main objective is to become a speech pathologist but photography will defintally be a side job. Along with this being my dream, it also brings a big obsession. The obsession would be looking at other photographers blogs. So I decided I am going to dedicate this post to some of the blogs i enjoy looking at! So here they are:

Thursday, May 22, 2008


wow well today was my last day of school. I am finally done and I am a senior now. I just can't believe how fast this school year went. Let alone high school all a way it kinda scares me because soon enough it will be over and I will have to be starting college and be in the real world with not as much help as I have now. This summer should be good though. I turn 18! yea finally legal, and I plan on working alot but also hanging out with friends more this year and having a good time... i don't want to regret anything and it is kinda my last real summer. Well I am going to get off here.
Love Always

Rain Rain go Away

wow... Ohio weather is absolutely killing me. For one by now every year that I can think of it has been atleast 75 or 80 outside and very nice. Instead this whole week it has dropped down to 50, windy and it rained all week. Today is actually the first day that it hasn't rained and it is somewhat nice but it still isn't warm enough for me. Anyways...yesterday I went to another scrap night at Maysville High School. I got some pages done but forgot my prom pictures at home so they still aren't done. But soon I will be able to post some more pictures of my pages.
Love Always

Thank God Its The Weekend

well this week went kind of slow for me. But we only have 8 days left of school so I guess that could be a reason as to why it was so slow. But last night Anthony and I went to see Baby Mama with Courtney and Brent. It was a really good movie, kind of predictable, but worth seeing. After the movie we went to b-dubs and got wings and a drink. I got home kind of early for it being a friday night but thats alright because today I get to go pick up Maddy and Molly, wonderful cousins that live here in Zanesvile (Avery lives in Columbus, OH - atleast an hr. away) Maddy has softball pictures and Uncle Matt had surgery on his knee so he can't carry Molly, who by the way is at that age where she is getting into everything (1yr2months) I get to keep them for a whole day so I defintally cannot wait. I think I am going to take them to the farm and maybe kidzville or the library...I just want to do something with them that will be fun.After I am done watching them I am going scrapbooking with mallory. This time we are going to her house. So I am going to need to pack everything up and I get to scrap somewhere other than my studio. Well hopefully tonight I will have more pictures for everyone. I got an eventful day ahead!
Love Always

Monday, May 5, 2008


well I had my Junior Year Prom this weekend and it was great! This whole weekend was fun, actually. On friday we (Prom Commitee) set up for the dance until 10:30 p.m. or so then Mallory and I went and stayed all night at Courtney's house so we could make cup cakes for the dance. We went to bed around 1:30 or 2:00 a.m. Then on saturday I went to breakfast with my family for Grandma Spiker's birthday. Then I my Aunt Lori did my hair at 1:30. We took pictures at these beautiful gardens in town. Then we ate dinner at Tumbleweed & headed to Promenade. It was raining when we got there but it was still fun showing up in the camo zuki! The dance was a blast and we ended the night with movies at Courtney's house. So here are some pictures of my eventful weekend. And I even scraped some too because there was a party yesterday. I'll get the pages on here as soon as possible.
Love Always

So here are the ones I got 2 weeks ago and as soon as I get the pictures of the ones from this weekend I will get them posted on here soon too. On friday night Mal and I also had a photoshoot for the lady who is doing our senior pictures. But we are her ambassadors so we decided we would have a little fun and I needed some pictures for my cards that I need to pass out. Well I guess here are the layouts I got done:

The wonderful things God does for us

Anthony didn't have to we decided that we would make a trip to Old Man's Cave in Logan, Ohio. Its about 2 hours away, but after we went to his house so we could get his camera and found a cage to put in the bed of the truck so Diesel could ride in there instead, it was already like 1:30. We didn't get there until about 5:00 or so because i relayed the directions to Anthony wrong from the lady at the gas station. It was kinda rainy but we had lots of fun and got some great pictures. It was Diesel's first real trip far away from home and he did absolutely GREAT! well here are some pictures.

Friday, March 28, 2008


Well I guess this is my first post with some of my projects in it. I originally made this blog in order to do this. I guess I am still trying to get the whole idea of this.

8th Grade 2005
these are just some pictures from my 8th grade year. This was the year I switched to public schools and these girls are the amazing girls that became my best friends. This lo is also the first one that i have done that has hidden tags on it.

This lo is for Anthony and I's 2 year anniversary. The journaling is lyrics from Jason Aldean's song "Livin' Our Love Song"

This is the second page for Livin Our Love Song. The journaling finishes up the song

These are from our County Fair (Aug. 2007) Mallory and I just sitting on our boxes in the Hog Barn.

This is the continuing page for the fair. These pictures are just from me showing my pig.

Love Always
