What will I do this time with out my GUESS? discount?!

SO, GUESS? is doing an employee appreciation weekend were everything is marked down 50% and I have been taking full advantage of it because I am going to be gone come June.

Earlier in the week, my sister picked out an EXTREMELY early birthday gift (the big ass bag to the left) and then I went and found the matching wallet that came in later in the week.

Momma Bell has her eyes on these beauties. All three of them are GORGEOUS in person.What we're going to end up doing, I have no idea what so ever, haha.

 I went ahead picked up Daddy Bell's Father's Day Gift (which I'm not going to post in case he stumbles across this from my Peace Corps Blog).

I am going to miss working at GUESS?. My co-workers are an amazing bunch of people, and we all have so much fun there. The discounts are simply the icing on the cake. As sad as I am to leave GUESS?, I am just as excited to be going into the Peace Corps, and hey, and at least I got a good, last go around of gifts for the family.IF I remember--which is already only 50/50 at best--I will clue you all in on Daddy Bell's Father's Day gift. I'll be going to Africa on June 21 so I already know my mind will be in a million other places.

Well, I'm off to nap!

Happy bloggin' y'all!

What have I been up to?


I finally have time to sit down and breath just in time to start gearing up for my June departure to Africa for service in the Peace Corps.I already sent out graduation announcement, but those were rather last minute,and to be quite honest, I was more excited to announce my Peace Corps plans.

My sister turned me on to these "do-it-yourself" wedding invitation kits that are pretty much perfect for anything that requires announcing something to large groups of people.

I plan on printing the following message on the stationary,and having everything mailed out by no later than Wednesday: 

"On Saturday May 1, 2010, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Florida. Go Gators!...

On Monday May 3, 2010, I spoke with my placement officer from the Peace Corps and I was told to expect an invitation to serve…

On Saturday May 8, 2010, I opened my invitation to serve in the Peace Corps as a Community Education and Development Outreach Agent in the West African country of Burkina Faso…

And on June 23, 2010, I will be en route to Africa to begin my service in the Peace Corps!

I want to thank my parents, Philip and Linda Bell, my sister Lindsay and all of my family and friends for their support and encouragement over the last four years. I want to especially thank God for ordering my steps and guiding me through this chapter of my life.

Words cannot express how happy I am to announce my graduation and service in the Peace Corps and how excited I am to start documenting it!

I plan on printing my announcement as a portrait and using the spots for RSVP's as a place to put photos from graduation and me opening my Peace Corps invitation.

I also know that I need  to start working on French more,so don't be surprised if you start seeing more French slipping into my post.

Well, it's off to bed for me guys,but I have a few post in the works that I need to finish up, so get excited to see those on BOTH my blogs.

Take care y'all,
