I just realized one of the saddest things in the world is seeing "0 comments" on your blog *sigh*

Yay me!!

I am very proud of myself~why you ask? Well, that is because I have stayed true to my previous predictions/plan~school during the day, pack at night. The past couple of days I've gotten up and gone to work up at school and then packed at night. I kinda got rained in today, so I didn't get to go up to school. However, I was productive and did school stuff at home PLUS I went through a bunch of boxes that I never ended up unpacking when I moved into my apartment(whoops!). So now that I cleared them all out, I now have more boxes to pack with! You can really tell in my house that I've gotten a lot packed! I know..I amaze myself sometimes too! Well, now I'm off to Walmart. This is always dangerous!

*Bethany, per your blog about going to Walmart and always coming out with more than you planned, or what was on your list~ I have a simple solution that I myself use. I make a list of things I need at Walmart. When I get there I get what I have on the list, but you know how you ALWAYS find something else you need/want? Well, I just add those items to my previously made list! That way, I always get was on my list and I just feel better about myself! I mean because I only ended up getting what was on "the list"! ;0)

Ok, I admit it-I have a small crush~ on Zac Efron....yes, I did say Zac Efron. And Jason, I don't care what you say or how old he is. I did say small CRUSH...I mean I'm not going to marry the boy or anything!

Anyways, it all started back when I watched the series Summerland when I saw him for the first time. I thought he was just the cutest thing! Then, I saw him in High School Musical (which I'm not afraid to admit that it's one of my favorite movies) and then I found out he could sing! The rest is history :0) I'm pretty sure that I was singing "Breakin Free" for months after that movie came out.

I was very excited when I was browsing through my Direct tv channels and about flipped out when I saw Summerland on there! Of course I'm now recording all of the episodes ;0)
Also, don't contact me on August 17th because I will be very busy watching High School Musical 2!

There~I've confessed I have a crush on Zac Efron~and I still think he's about the cutest thing ever! He's so cute he deserved TWO pictures!
Ok, I'm done now ;0)

And so it begins....

The time is finally here..it's a very bittersweet moment~it's finally time for me to go start working up in my room at school. Yes, I know that it's still summer and I should be enjoying it~which I will!

However, I will yet again start another wonderful(please Jesus) school year exactly one month from today! I am hoping to be able and keep my head somewhat over water this year and be more organized and not as stressed as I was last year.

I am not so blind to realize that I won't be stressed or get every single thing that I want done in one month's time. Especially seeing how I will also be moving(thank you Jesus!) and having to pack also. However, I will do my best to start early and get what I can done! So the plan is: school during the day, packing at night! Sounds good to me~pray for me please! And so it begins...

Here's to a start of another great school year, and another amazing class!

First Time

"First Time" by Lifehouse
We're both looking for something
We've been afraid to find
It's easier to be broken
It's easier to hide
Looking at you, holding my breath,
For once in my life, I'm scared to death,
I'm taking a chance, letting you inside.
Feeling alive all over again,
As deep as the sky, under my skin
Like being in love, she says for the first time
Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm feeling right
Where I belong with you tonight
Like being in love to feel for the first time
The world that I see inside you
Waiting to come to life
Waking me up to dreaming
Reality in your eyes
Looking at you, Holding my breath,
For once in my life I'm scared to death,
I'm taking a chance, letting you inside.
I'm feeling alive all over again
As deep as the sky under my skin
Like being in love, she says, for the first time
Maybe I'm wrong, I'm feeling right
Where I belong with you tonight
Like being in love to feel for the first time
We're crashing into the unknown
We're lost in this
But it feels like home
I'm feeling alive all over again
As deep as the sky that's under my skin
Like being in love, she says, for the first time
Maybe I'm wrong, I'm feeling right
Where I belong with you tonight
Like being in love to feel for the first time
I can't wait to sing this to him :0) Awesome song~awesome c.d~listen to it

Sweet Summer

I saw something today that made my heart smile~

While I was driving home from my Jazzercise class, I passed by a house where I saw two little girls outside. What were they doing, you ask? Well, they were jumping rope...yes, I said jumping rope. It just made me so happy to see them doing that~I have no idea if they were sisters or best friends~all I know is that they were playing outside. They weren't inside with their faces glued to the television, they weren't spending hours playing video games, they weren't wasting countless hours on the computer~they were outside playing and spending time with each other. They were making memories that they don't even know will become precious to them in the future when they look back to their childhood.

It made my heart smile :0)

God Bless Texas!

I thought this was very amusing~

Few people know that probably one of my very favorite cakes is the Texas Sheath Cake. My mom made it growing up in my family, along with my grandma and grandmother. I just love how yummy it tastes, how good the frosting is, and how it just melts in my mouth! For a while now, I've been craving it and wanted to bake one. So last week I found a recipe online and went to the store and got all the ingredients to make one. Today I made it and it is absolutely scruptious! I was looking online just now and was very surprised when I read this article
It just made me very happy ~and proud to be a Texas cook!
P.S. It tastes as good as it looks!

Prayer Request

I've been trying to find a rent house pretty much all summer-with no luck. They all have been rented out the day before I tried to look at them, have approved pending contracts, too expensive..yada yada yada.

Anyways, I need to find a house ASAP because I have to give my 30 days notice to my apartment. I'm also wanting to get moved in before school starts. So I've obviously been praying about this, and the other night I just got really frusterated and I said, "God I just don't know what to do..should stay or go?" I told God that I just needed a sign from him..and I asked that he please make it very obvious! You want to know what happened? The next morning I received an e-mail from one of my ex-student Cullen's mom, Shonna giving me the information of a realtor that they used to buy their house. Shonna contacted the realtor and she replied back saying she would love to help and had lots of houses for me to check out!!! Whoo Hoo!!

So we've been e-mailing back and forth yesterday and today, and we think we found exactly what I wanted, at my price!! THANK YOU JESUS!

Now, I need you to just pray that if this is the house the Lord wants me to take, everything will just fall into place!

Thank you Jesus for obvious signs! :0)

Hit me baby!

I was reading Bethany's blog the other day about how she is never caught off guard and how she's really able to know or feel something big is coming. I realized that I am completely like that! I mean I wanted flowers and my kids at school were continuously bringing me flowers~I do normally get what I want (Sorry Bethany if this sounds a lot like your blog~but it's so true!)

I just thought though..I don't want to know. If you know me, you know that I LOVE surprises..whatever it may be..I love them! However, rarely can anybody catch me off guard. I want that~I want something or somebody to catch me off guard and knock me on my butt (not literally). Shock me~make me speechless(that never happens!)

Just hit me with it baby! ;0)
P.S. The picture above is of the flowers that I received from all my kids on my birthday. Seriously, who needs a man to bring you flowers when you have these awesome kids?! I heart and miss them very much!!

Yum Yum!!

Tonight I received something that was very yummy to my heart...

doesn't it always end up that the things that are most addicting to us, people say are the same ones that are the worst for us? I'm still debating on that one..

and wouldn't you like to know what was so yummy? Good..because I'm not going to tell you!:0)

I will say that it wasn't food ;0)

so while I was driving around the neighborhood (STILL looking for a rent house) I saw something that gave me something to think about..

I looked to a house on my right, to where I saw a mother outside. This mother was dressed in her nurse's uniform, either getting back, or fixing to go to work. She had a little baby in her arms, and was holding a little girl's hand. When I looked closer, I noticed that the little girl had roller blades on. I then realized what the mother and daughter were doing. The mother, was helping her daughter practice roller blading.

I thought to myself, that this mother, who probably had a million other things that she needed to or could have been doing, was taking time out of her day to spend time with her daughter (with her other child in her arms!).

I hope that mother knows what an impact that she's going to have on her daughter by spending time with her~by teaching her~by giving her memories that she'll remember forever.

I hope that I'm that good of a mother one day.....

So, because of unforseen issues, the trip to Tennessee has been cancelled. Yes, I know, very sad..but don't worry! The Snodgrass family is still coming to see me, we are going to Six Flags tomorrow, shopping and a Ranger's game on Tuesday, and more exciting events to come during the week. More pics to follow! :0)
