Good morning bloggers!

hope you are having a great Tuesday so far.
I am out of school for the summer! 
I'm so pumped to have this time off...I don't even know what to do with myself.
I have been going through my pinterest crafts and very soon will have some cool post to share.

I have made a decision....
I am going to be a Big Sister! 
No I don't mean my mother is having a child.
I mean I want to sponsor a child from the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

If you are not familiar with the organization... They pair you with a youth. (I think the age is 10-14) You commit to hanging out with them twice a month for 18 months.
I know what your thinking. THAT SOUNDS LIKE ALOT.
That was my thoughts too...
I have been feeling challenged though because I don't really do a ton of community service.
I use to do quite a bit in college and now I am lucky to volunteer 6 times a year.
I personally do not think that is enough.

Tonight is the first training. I am nervous.
I have to go for two hours. I also had to do an extensive background check to make sure that I am not a creeper with a criminal record.

I hope that I get paired with someone cool. 
I'm not picky...any of the following will do!
 Can she get any cuter

 I'm pretty sure he would have me laughing all day

 He would ask me to be part of his Goonies squad and we would go on treasure adventures!

I mean these kids look so cool in the movies they must be fun in life right??

Course it could swing the other way and I could get a nightmare like this...

and then I will react like this...

Or maybe like this...

all because I know no matter what I do cute adorable Lindsay would end up like this jailbird/train wreck Lindsay...

Yikes! Needless to say I'm am excited/nervous about this whole thing.

I'll keep you updated.
Here goes nothing :)

Hello all!

I feel like I have been so busy lately.
If you followed my last post about making homemade vanilla...It was a success.
I watched it age and gave the bottle a shake every couple of days for about 4 weeks.
I just used it in my first batch of cookies and it was awesome!
Highly recommend doing this. It made so much vanilla and tastes so much better than the imitation.
Also I heard that whole vanilla beans this year are going to be scare so that means the price of store bought vanilla will be on the rise as well.
Just a tip

In other news.
I think I am getting ready to scratch some stuff off my thirty for thirty list.
If you have not done this...make one ASAP.
Its so fun and gives you some real goals to shoot for.

Anyway the one that I think I will be accomplishing this month is this...

I found this on pinterest and its so close to what I had in my head that I freaked.
I think I will change the thickness of the infinity and the font but I really stinking love this.
I also want to get this on my foot?
What does everyone think of the new white ink tattoos? Sorta makes it look like a scar?
Also anyone have suggestions on the inside or the outside of the ankle?
If you in c-bus I would also love to hear who you recommend as a tattoo shop or artist?

Also just had my first poolside day with my best girlie's!
So good to just get together and chill but the pool and then go out for delicious Mexican food!

what a dork!

Also I just started taking biotin the supplement.
I hear that it is suppose to make your hair grow fast.
Well I just chopped some bang and it was such a mistake!!!
I hate them...I fell like I am touching them constantly and I'm even annoying myself.
You cant see them in the above picture because as you can see I have been braiding that side of my hair as a way to deal with the mess.
 If I ever consider bangs again I seriously want someone to shoot me in the face!!

BTW...I saw my second circus in like my whole life.
Except now I'm old enough to remember it.
Ringling Brothers were in town.
Peta was there picketing outside the event about elephant cruelty.
It was kind of disturbing.
Jared said there is no way that they could be mean to elephants and get away with it because of all the animal rights regulations. I hope that is the truth.
It was a good date night. I don't think I will be in any hurry to go back for a few years.
I think not till we have kids who would really love it.

Have a great week everyone!
