Miscellany Monday.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1.) I'm about to buy $25 dollars worth of music off Itunes and I am soo excited! .. No worries. It's a giftcard!

2.) I love picking out baby names for my children one day. Actually, planning for every special event in my life is fun for me! Call me weird if you would like.

3.) I have a new hobby! Jewelry making. I'm gonna make it big. haha

4.) My lunch at school today was horrible. 
That reminds me.. I need to get groceries.

5.) I love the feeling during a church service when you just realize how much God loves you and how much he has blessed you. Man! Life is good! 

Remember my brother. He had an injury to his rotator cuff today while training with the fire department (where he works).  Praying that surgery isn't his outcome!

Happy Monday!

Much.needed. Weekend.

The weekend is over. I'm a little bummed. 
But.. It's ok because I had a great weekend. You know sometimes you just have those weeks where you are tired of everything and just want to hang out with friends and let your troubles worry about themselves? Well.. I had one of those weeks last week and I knew that it was time for girls night out in! 

My friend, Merle, had taken her Nursing Boards test and so stress was at a max for her as well.. so friend time just needed to happen.  Merle,Brittany, and I,  met up Friday and decided to go eat at our favorite Mexican Restaurant. Too good! Then.. we decided to go home, put on our pj's, and relax! The best decision we've ever made. :)

This is us, Sophomore year of college. Halloween Costume Party!!

Saturday was filled with shopping, eating at the best southern restaurant, Cracker Barrel, and then seeing my mother and grandmother! 

Today, I worked on a little craft project, filled out a job application. Geez, these things are too intense, and worshiped my Lord at church!

i'd say it was a great weekend. :)

Fill In the Blank Friday!

Good gracious! Thank you Lord for Fridays. 
After working with kindergarteners for 5 days, the weekend is a beautiful piece of heaven from my Lord! Seriously, people! Those precious babies wear me OUT
I have been very sad that my blogging was almost ZIP this week. Promise I'll get back on track soon.  School was crazy and lots of projects due but hopefully most of it is completed now.

This next week is going to be full of job applications and praying for a job next fall. You should pray for me too! K, thanks!? 


1.  If I could  medal in an olympic event it would be the bobsled because it looks like it would be a mix of thrill/scary/the fastest rush I would ever experience!

2.  If I was stranded on a deserted island I'd take my Bible, my iPod, and some friends. I need a good balance of alone time and company.

3.  OCD tendencies  are my most irrational fear.(such as--things out of place and odd numbers.)

4.  I'd rather deal with puke, snot (even though it freaks me out), and feces  everyday,  than see or pull a loose tooth everyday.

5.  I am ready to do some new craft projects. Come on spare time.. Where are you?

6.  I should really be  applying for jobs for next fall. Instead, I'm watching Tyler Perry movies with the girls! I just love nights like this...

7.  One of my favorite things in all the world is shopping with my family and friends/getting a good cup of coffee from Starbucks on a COLD day!

Chaco Wedding.. I'm obsessed!

It's Wednesday! Woohoo! It's been one of those weeks where I can't seem to get anything done. It's been a cloudy day here in Oxford but things are going well. Lesson plans, BOPS ice cream, a car wreck involving the roommate, but... Life is grand! 

Think Harper likes BOPS? It's new and Oxford people are going crazy! 
The guy was super cute and he asked me if my dog could have some ice cream. Of course! She absolutely loved it! 
Thanks, cute guy!-
                   Woof... Harper

{one} It's almost the weekend. I need girl time, relaxation, and no school work!

{two}  My friend Merle is taking her Nursing test tomorrow. She has to pass it to get a job and I know that my God whom she is in love with, will help her out and give her all the comfort, and answers that she needs to know! Please send up a prayer on her behalf. :)

{three} My 10-day is drafted, now just to add details and perfect what I have. Man, the life of a teacher is so much more than just lesson plans and teaching in the classroom. We are supporters, nurses, bankers, counselors, all of the above at one moment or another. I absolutely love my kinders and I can't wait to have a classroom of my own.  Butttt... It does scare me to death when I think about it. Oh, my! It'll be here soon!

{Four} I'm in need of a thrift shopping excursion. No, I'm not obsessed or anything! :)

I love this! 

Happy Wednesday, all!

Miscellany Monday.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{one} I am writing my 10-day lesson plan and it's no fun. Seriously, no   lesson plan will ever have to be this detailed. SERIOUSLY! Ahh!

{Two} I got a new Iphone this weekend and I'm so happy it works. :)  Thanks, cheese dip! :)

{Three} I need sleep! :)

This is random. I know. Goodnight!

Sunday Thoughts!

It's Sunday and I'm already dreading this week. That's not good! 
Hopefully, everything will work out and I'll get all my stuff turned in on time.

This time last semester I was struggling BIG TIME! It was awful. So thankful that season of my life is OVER! 

I'll blog about the weekend tomorrow. Until. Then.

Goodnight! :)
Isn't this quote perfect for me right now!

OH! and... Happy Birthday to the best, most fun, cutest, little Maroon and White yelling, stinkin' Bulldog fan cousin, Tyler Patrick!
I.cant. believe. how. old. you. are.  :(

I love you to the moon! :)

I remember the day you were born. My mama woke me up the next day and told me your sweet name and how much you weighed. I was in love and I haven't even met you yet. I had been the baby for.. well forever, and I wouldn't pass that title down to anyone but YOU! 
(Your daddy better let you read this blog) haha.
Love you sweet boy!

Fill in the blank. Friday!

1.)  I am a child of God who is mighty unworthy, a student teacher to 20 kinders whom I love, a girl who absolutely cannot wait to fall in love, get married and have babies. It's my life's dream! :)

2.  The bravest thing I've ever done was signing up to be a summer missionary for 2 months, not knowing where I would be or what I would be doing. You can read about it here because it was the best summer of my life.

3.  I feel prettiest when  I'm all dressed up for a night out on the town and also on Sunday Mornings because I always wear a dress to church.  It's just what most Southern Baptist girls do!

4.  Something that keeps me awake at night is   to-do lists, my iphone, twitter, homework my mind that will not rest.

5.  My favorite meal in the entire world is   Mi Pueblo, Grilled chicken chimichanga a la carte. 

6. The way to my heart is being around kids and making them a priority, ok, and shopping!

7.  I would like to  loose weight and shop on 5th avenue in New York. Wouldn't that be awesome?

So excited that it's the weekend! This week has been great but very tiring! 
Bunco tonight and I surely hope that I am luckier than I have been in a couple of months.!

Tomorrow=MEMPHRICA! My favorite!

Happy Friday! Do what makes you happy!

Hey friends! It's Wednesday.. One day close to the weekend. I couldn't be happier! :)

This week has been great but I am just so ready for a little time to relax and get away from 5 year olds..

{one} I love the opportunity that I got this weekend for being able to hang out and invest in eight 10th grade girls who were just too much fun! It was a very humbling experience for me because I am so not in my comfort zone by not knowing anybody at this church.  Luckily, God had other plans and I ended up knowing a couple of the other DiscipleNow leaders.  These weekends are so neat because God always shows up and he expects us to carry out these truths that we learn about for the rest of our lives. I had a great time.  We stayed with a sweet couple that I know and their daughter left me this in her room, in which I stayed.  Isn't that so sweet?

Matt Papa band.. seriously look them up on Itunes. Sooo awesome! 

Sammy Nuckolls preached and did an outstanding job! It wasn't my first time hearing him but he still blew me away sharing the love of my father!

{two}  I have big hopes for good things to happen in the coming months.  I've started thinking about "grown up" things such as jobs, houses, etc.. and I know that in good time all these unknowns will be known to me. 

{three}  I'm loving that we have no snow on the ground and 70 degree weather. It's great! Come on Spring!

{four} I'm loving blogging. Finding new blogs, freebies, printables, everything that is involved.  It makes me happy and is such a stress relief for me! 

Happy HumpDay!

Single Awareness Day. :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. 1. It's another Valentine's day,  Single! But God has bigger plans and dreams than even I have for myself, so that's ok.
  2. Did you like the video above? I did too! Have you ever had these thoughts because I have! Thanks, Heather for letting me use your video. It was great! 
  3. I have been having thoughts about becoming a wife and mommy lately, ok, since I was 3.. but today while reading some blogs I came upon this quote on Lauren's blog.
"If God is calling you to be a wife and mother, he will bring someone to you".

4.) My precious kindergarteners spoiled me rotten today with candy, love, hearts. all of the above. Who needs a man when I have all of them? I kid. :)

5.  I had this blog already typed out exactly how I wanted it and somehow it got deleted. Bummer.

6.) My V-day date tonight consisted of Lane, Alicia, and I going to eat at our favorite Mexican place in Oxford, Papitos, and happened upon Keith and Kevin. Thanks for being our dates, boys!

My gifts from Emily. Harper's too! 
My grandmother gave me a home-made card. She is precious!

7.) I got to love on some precious 10th grade girls this weekend at a DiscipleNow in Batesville. I am so thankful that my mother and daddy were nice enough to keep the "grand-dog" so I could invest in these girls lives. God showed up and out and I can't wait to blog about the weekend. :)
Thanks, parents!

8. This list makes my OCD self very happy.

Love on someone today!

Thursday Thoughts!


Happy Thursday!

Let me just recap how great my day has been today! I woke up at 10:00 because a precious pups named Harper let her mama sleep late. Isn't she sweet?!  It was the first time I have slept late in forever. BLISS!

So, As you can tell SNOW is what I am thanking him for today. Snow reminds me to slow down, take some time for myself, and understand just how much my GOD loves us!

Then, after all the roomies woke up we all at breakfast at our kitchen table for the first time together and then went to play in the snow again. Listen, we know how to have fun!

I mean we seriously had a ball! Snow days are the best!

I bet we took 250 pictures! Don't worry I won't share that many. Even though I would love to.

In case you can't tell, we LOVE jumping pictures.

We had so much fun! I'll spare you the other 245 pictures! :)


I need WANT this so bad! It is the cutest thing I've ever seen!

Ah! It's Friday and... Guess what?! No school today either! Thank you WTVA for that announcement! 
Woo hoo! Are we sure that I don't live up North!?

Finally, I am leading a DiscipleNow retreat this weekend and I am very excited about the opportunity! But.. my friend just informed me that she can't come and help me. I'm nervous. Please pray that my Savior will help me during the weekend and give me the knowledge to lead those girls exactly the way that he intends. 

Lord, let me invest in them...

Heard this tonight exactly when I needed it. 

God is good.

WILW. Snow Style

It's that time again! Linking up with Jamie!

* I'm loving the snow that God decided to bless Mississippi with today. It's been so much fun to get out of school early, rest, and then have a blast with the room mates trying to kill ourselves sledding down our hill at the apartment! 

* I found this quote on someone's blog while stalking tonight and I absolutely loved it!
Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be 

lived forwards! 

* I have no school tomorrow and I couldn't be happier. I am planning on some 
DIY projects, and planning for a relaxing day. Bring it on, snow!

* I am loving that this week is flying by and that my kiddos are being super funny at school which helps the days go by faster. 
I just love this age! 

Hoping for a fun, relaxing day tomorrow. Happy SNOW DAY!

Top 2 Tuesday!

This week deals with 2 things that I have learned from blogging!

1.) I love talking about my life and sharing my feelings about myself but I am terrible at journaling.  I love being online and I feel that this will be the neatest thing for me to look back on in 30 years and truly see what I was facing during that certain time in my life. 

2.) Meeting new people is crazy to me! I love it! I'm such a people person.  I enjoy reading about other people's lives and allowing them a glimpse into my crazy, sometimes boring, everyday, life. God is good and I hope that through me they may see him! 

Just for some more answers I love giveaways, freebies, printables, and precious crafty ideas! 

Happy Tuesday!

It's Monday, people!

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Here we go again. I feel like I haven't blogged in forever! This week this blog will be my lifeline. I've got some exciting things up my sleeve, so stay tuned. :)

1.) Sick! That's how I feel today! Ready for Spring and the chance to get well! Even though, I am saying the inspiration above. God has blessed me soo much! 

2.) I got my leopard boots that I wanted this weekend!! :) Remember these?!
Love them!!

3.) God loves to see us smile! This was my devotion tonight and I love that thought! I am constantly amazed at how much he does to bless me and let me know that he loves me! I serve a good GOD!

I am wanting to start a picture a day in 2011.  I hear that you can start whenever, wherever. So.. We will see when that motivation takes place.

So much to do, so little time. See you soon!
