weekend at a glance

or i guess a more appropriate title would be better late than never. i've been studying all week for my COMPS exam, which -by the way- is this saturday. for those of you that don't know what COMPS is- it's basically a really evil way of making sure you know your info in graduate school... aka a comprehensive essay exam. its not enough for you to pass your classes... they want you to come back after you've been in your externship for 6 weeks and really show'em what you got. eh hem. i'll step off my soap box to tell you about my weekend now.
i spent the weekend at Mexico Beach, Fl visiting my dad and step mom for Father's Day. the weather was really nice. i really only went on the beach once and it was around sunset to take pictures of my friend and her family.
roo did not get to tag-along on this trip so there are no pictures of him in this post.
 oh, I forgot to tell you, i transported my bff's oldest daughter down to the beach to let her spend 11 days with one of her friends. we are holding funyuns in front of our eyes. yes, i took her to a convenience store and let her pick out whatever she wanted to eat (mountain dew white and funyuns)

 this was a fun store we went to on saturday. it's called persnickety and it's located in port st. joe, fl. i recommend it to anyone who is down there. lots of stuff to look at and very cute!
 actually, you DO look like i need a drink. 
man, i should of gotten those.
 some bangles that i liked.
 did someone tell them i was coming? because this bag was right in front of the door when i walked inside. someone must of called and let them know i was making an appearance.
me in persnickety.
look at the big ol' honker of a tooth sticking out in the picture. too bad my family didn't love me enough to get me braces. eh hem.
 we ate lunch at peppers, even though we wanted to eat lunch at joe mama's. they were closed at lunch. this place was pretty good, though.
my daddy. 
typical behavior.
 daddy looking a fishing stuff in blue riggers outdoors or some name like that.
 the beach sign at the beach house.
 wreath just above the beach sign.
 daddy outside cooking hamburgers on father's day
mmm hamburgers.
me and daddy right before i left.
shirt from jcrew and borrowed from my sister. eh hem.

lost phone

don't let it confuse you, the title of this post is simply a substitute for the biggest thing that happened to me this weekend. next week (i promise) i will have a new installment of weekend at a glance. these past two weeks have been BU-SY! i tell ya, between my externship and other obligations, i've been going to bed as soon as i walk into my apartment door! but i digress, back to the lost phone issue, this past weekend i worked at my local country club (which coincidentally is where my stepdad is the golf pro, eh hem) sitting at hole 13 collecting money for shots. at one point i went to the club house to use the bathroom and on my way back i realized i lost my phone. i searched and searched and searched for it and did not find it on saturday. the feeling was bittersweet, i've been without my phone for a week and a half when i was in Europe and loved it! (yes, i loved being in europe and without my cell phone). i immediately went home and started searching for a new phone (eh hem, an iphone to be exact)- not that my phone isn't cool, being a droid and all, but c'mon who doesn't want an iphone. so when i found my phone on sunday i was super pumped but then again i knew my dreams of an iphone would have to wait. sigh.
so here is the only picture i have worth sharing from the last weekend-
it was after the Calcutta at the country club last friday night. I was sitting in my friend C's car (she wasn't in the car- nor did she know i was taking pictures, otherwise she would have been in the picture with me) and it's pretty typical of me to look like or have my eyes closed in a picture. duh, winnning.
