ABC's of Me! :)

I hate neglecting this little stress reliever of mine. Life is just so busy and all over the place right now. 

Don't get me wrong, I love every minute of it but its just a "season of life" that I am going to have to figure out. Know what's beautiful though? God knew exactly what I would feel and he already has it all worked out for his good!

Now, that puts a smile on my face!

Just for fun!

A. Age: 22

B. Bed size: A Full Size bed. It's just what I'm used to. Guess when I get older I'll upgrade but until then... :)

C. Chore that you hate: Dusting. Yuck! Who wants to wipe something gross off of furniture. Yes, I know its necessary but it doesn't help my feelings about it.

D. Dogs: My favorite Animal. How sweet are they? Especially this little fuzzy butt! :)

E. Essential start to your day: Music in the mornings. I usually take a shower and then turn on the country music. Some days, every time I turn it on its the same song. Now, THAT freaks me out!

F. Favorite color: I love aqua, pink, and turquoise.  Such a girly-girl! :)

G. Gold or Silver: Silver. I for SURE want a silver wedding and engagement ring but Gold costume jewelry is fun these days. 

H. Height: 5'1. Yes, I'm short. Don't remind me. 

I. Instruments you play: Well, I played Flute for what seems like forever but now, not even sure I could play a note.

J. Job title: 
1st Grade Teacher, nose-wiper, Noise-controller, counselor, mother, father, nurse, librarian.. Must I go on. 

K. Kids: Are my absolute favorite thing about this earth. I believe God created kids to show the best of ourselves. I can't wait to have a house full!

L. Live: Mississippi is where I live. I love to LIVE. LIFE. LOUD!

M. Mother’s name: Donna. (Daw-na) in a Boston Accent. That's fun!

N. Nicknames: Ellepea, LP, lil pat, Punkin, (thanks, dad). Lots of fun little names. 

O. Overnight hospital stays: Plenty when I was younger. I was a preemie so that explains that. None recently.

P. Pet peeves: When people leave 2-5 seconds left on the microwave and make noises with their mouths.

Q. Quote from a movie: "You is Smart, You is Kind, You is Important". Ah! That movie was wonderful! 

R. Right or left handed: Right Hand! 

S. Siblings: One brother, Adam.  We kinda like each other. :)

U. Ultimate Vacation: Oh, Cabo. I will go there one day. 

V. Vegetable you hate: Butterbeans. Yuck.

W. What makes you run late: I don't plan anything before the moment of. I need to work on that. Maybe later!

X. X-Rays you’ve had: Teeth, broken arm from falling off of a bull-dozer. So crazy! , lungs when I have bronchitis, and probably lots more. I'm kinda accident prone. 

Y. Yummy food that you make: I love sausage/cream cheese crescent rolls. So good! Brownies. Let's just say "Paula Deen" isn't in me. 

Z. Zoo animal: Favorite= Zebra! They are adorable. 

Thanks for this idea, Lindsee. :)
Such a fun way to blog about ourselves.

What I'm loving Wednesday!

It breaks this little heart of mine to not be able to BLOG as often as I used to. Guess that's all part of the "I'm a 1st year teacher" package, right?  Life is good right now, but VERY busy! Does it ever get easier? I feel like I bring most of my work home with me and I don't want that to always be the case. 
To-do: Work on this. Any suggestions?

I'm loving these things!

I stayed after school today and finally got a few little things that will make a BIG different out of the way. Now for some more tomorrow. Stay tuned. There will be pictures!

I'm so excited that I'm 95% sure that Mama, Linda, and I will experience the Annual Germantown Yardsales this year! We've always wanted to go and with me living close it's on the list this year. I'll let you know how it goes! Anybody that knows me, knows it's right up my alley!

I'm addicted to PINTEREST! I need therapy! :)

1.   You should always take time to   call your family, especially your MAMA at night. It does a family good.

2.   Babies   make(s) the world a happier place to be.

3.  I can hardly wait for   Christmas Break, already   .

4.    Saturday   is my favorite day of the week.

Hotty Toddy! Game Weekend!



Game weekend! Ah! Hotty Toddy. It was amazing being back HOME. My heart leaped as soon as we parked and headed to the grove! :) 
I met Rachel this weekend and it was like meeting a celebrity. I adore her blog! Nice to meet you, miss!
Winning the game made is even sweeter. TSBU losing didn't hurt either.


This lady, my "MOM" is celebrating her 86th Birthday Wednesday and we celebrated her day today with our family. Church, Dinner after, and a day spent at her house. She is the most special lady ever and I can't wait to celebrate with her this weekend! She has always been such a great role model in my life and I love her dearly!

I need to get better at this lesson planning thing. That's all. 

I'm hoping to blog lots more this week than just Monday! 

Happy Monday!

Miscellany Monday

 Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

I'm so glad that I got to eat at my favorite restaurant 2 times this weekend! It's the simple things in life! It's so bad that they know my order by heart and they just grin when my friends/mother/whoever is with me when we walk in. Is that embarrassing and pathetic? Oh well!

I was invited to a beach wedding for March and I am so excited. Now to plan the outfit, where to stay, how long to stay... this is going to be fun. I promise you though, every person that I know is getting engaged. God, I know this is your plan and a season in my life but when is it going to be my turn? 
Wedding Season is my favorite. I am so excited...  :)

I have lots of fun plans for the next month. Birthday parties, wedding showers, yard sales in Germantown (oh, how excited am I), school field trips with my firsties. Life is good right now and I am so thankful for the things My Lord is letting me experience.

So thankful for this long weekend that I could spend with friends and family. 

How blessed are we! 

Happy Monday!

Fill In The Blank Friday!

1.   One thing that is completely superfluous, but that I could never give up is   reading blogs! It's a stress reliever for me. Think I'm crazy? Oh,well! 

2.   Public Display of Affection makes me feel awkward.

3.  I can't   function   without diet coke.

4.    Pretzel Sticks   are my favorite snack.

5.  Lately I've been    stressing over lesson plans and such. Hoping this First year teaching business gets a little easier and less stressful.

6.  If at first you don't succeed   cry and pout. No, just chill out. God has a plan!

7.  Fall is   a lovely season for jeans, cute long sleeve shirts, SEC football, special times with friends/family, rolling yards, and cookouts! :)

It's been a crazy, fun week. So tired and ready for a LONG weekend. Thank you Labor Day for being here! We all are looking forward to the break.

Go listen to this song now! It's a free download on Came on the radio at the perfect time the other day! So good!
