Do you know what you want to be when you grow up?

I could be one of the most indecisive people you have ever met.

Every day I think of something I would love to be doing. Just yesterday I was driving to work and thinking what would I like to be doing other than what I was doing at that very moment. . .

I often go to interior decorator, I like to think I would be going to meet with my clients or go shopping( Happy thought), other days I want to be in fashion, or a party planner. I often dream of those things and it helps me get through my day.

How many people have their dream job? How many people just get by? I do not want to be one of those people who just gets by.

This past week I went back to Southern Illinois. I love going back just to be me. See my friends and family, and remember being a kid and remembering why I left.

Here is pictures of my week...

Sno cone evenings..

Me and my bff from high school, hadn't seen her in almost 3 years...love her to death.

My bff, love this girl, who accepts me and all my flaws

Today I bought a long leather skirt that I'm going to try to turn into a mini, see how that goes.
