Why I love my boss :0)

I love my boss for many reasons, but the reason today was that he let us wear our "Halloween" outfits AND jeans! Believe me...most of you take this for granted, but any day teachers get to wear jeans, it's like a national holiday! I will seriously have the best day ever if I get to wear jeans at school. Such as today! I was very excited this morning, so I decided to take some pictures of me being so happy :0) Plus there's also a picture of my cute, Halloween painted toes, in honor of today! Yes..I know..I don't have a life. SO WHAT!! ;0)

The post you've all been waiting for!!

I DID IT! I've finally finished watching all seasons of Grey's Anatomy and am totally caught up! I feel so cool I'm officially "one of the guys". Hey, tomorrow night I can actually watch the new episode just like everyone else, when everyone else does! So, now I give you my permission to post your little hearts out about whatever you want to dealing with Grey's Anatomy. Man this feels good! :0)

Boot scootin' back home..

Well I can definitely say that my weekend was a success! I am definitely glad to be back home though :0) Jacque and I left and arrived at the airport early Friday morning on time and made our flight to San Angelo without any hassles (this is a definite PLUS for us ;0) When we arrived, our good friend we stayed with, Ashley, picked us up from the airport (which surprisingly Cassandra, is now finished with all the work they were doing on it. It looks like an actual airport now! Very nice!) When went back to her apartment, and then went out to eat at my all time favorite restaurant, McAlister's Deli. After that we went shopping at Hobby Lobby and checked out all the fall sales and the new Christmas stuff. Major fun! Then we went shopping at the mall, which some of it has also been redone..nice. Then we went back and got ready for the Phi Lamb barn dance.

The dance was a total success and so much fun! Jacque did an amazing job speaking. I was so proud of her! Probably mine and Jacque's favorite highlight of the night was getting to see SHYANNE!!!!!!! You probably would have thought we were weirdos if you'd have seen us. When we saw her, we started screaming her name and ran up and attacked her with hugs :0) We had so much fun recapping on our lives that night. *Shy..we talked later and said how great you looked and how much we missed your personality..and just you! :0)

Other highlights of the night were: getting to know and mingle with the Phi Lamb girls, dancing the Cotton Eyed Joe, doing the line dances (even though we weren't sure they were right), posing with John Wayne ;0) and just being with friends! It was a great evening!

The only NON highlight of my evening was when we got back to Ashley's apt, and I evidently got some bug, and spent the rest of the night hugging the toilet! NOT FUN! I still wasn't feeling good the next afternoon, but I finally felt better on Sunday. I don't know what it was?! Anyways, we said our goodbyes and made it back safely on Sunday morning.

Overall, even with my date with the toilet, it was a great weekend and I wouldn't have traded anything. I told Amanda that I missed college...I missed my friends, the fellowship, and Phi Lamb. I'd honestly forgot how much FUN college was. I wouldn't change my life now and I'm happy where I'm at...but honestly..I miss it! So that's the recap on my weekend! Enjoy a few pics from the weekend :0) me, Shyanne, and Jacque
me with the love of my life...John

I'm back!

Ok, so don't be mad at me, but I don't have time to do a long post and update you on my great/interesting as it was. However, I do promise that in the next couple of days I will be posting and putting up pictures :0) I have grad school class tomorrow night, so I don't know if I'll get it done tomorrow, but we'll see. I hope everyone is doing great, and had a good weekend! Love ya'll!

San Angelo bound!

To all of my dear San Angelo friends, Jacque and I are going to be flying in for the weekend tomorrow! Whoo hoo! We, being on the ASU Phi Lamb Alumni Board, get to take a trip out to see the girls. We're really excited! Our plans are: Friday night is Phi Lamb's Open Party at the ASU pavilion from 7-9. The theme is a "barn dance", so we'll be dancing the night away. If any of my fellow SA bloggers would like to see me/us, you can come out to open party. It's open to everyone (you don't have to be in the sorority to come) and gonna be alot of fun. Even if you wanted to just drop by and say hi, that would be awesome! We're flying in tomorrow morning, and will leave Sunday morning. Hope to see some of you soon!

"Walking Her Home"

If this one doesn't make you cry, or at least tear up..there is something seriously WRONG with you!

"He Will Carry Me" Mark Shultz

I call, You hear me
I've lost it all
And it's more than I can bear
I feel so empty

You're strong
I'm weary
I'm holdin' on
But I feel like givin' in
But still You're with me

And even though I'm walkin' through
The valley of the shadow
I will hold tight to the hand of Him
Whose love will comfort me
And when all hope is gone
And I've been wounded in the battle
He is all the strength that I will
Ever need
He will carry me

I know I'm broken
But You alone
Can mend this heart of mine
You're always with me

And even though I feel so lonely
Like I've never been before
You never said it would be easy
But You said you'd see me through the storm

Thanks Stephanie!

My sweet friend Stephanie reminded me of something that I seemed to have forgotten lately. I am NOT the author of my life story! My life was already planned out and designed by my Heavenly Father long before I was even born.

I know this..but I don't know why I've forgotten it. My other sweet friend Sarah C. also reminded me of something today..even though I know that God has a specific plan and purpose for my life, I sometimes feel like I should "help" Him. How utterly silly is that of me?! Absolutely ridiculous..and completely human of me. I am such a sinner.

Thank goodness that I don't have to worry about what to "write" anymore. I don't have to stress about what's going to happen, or stress about what's not happening. So, as of now when it comes to the thesis of my life, I am handing over...the pen.

Needed: a thesis for life

Remember all of the main tips and essentials of writing a formal paper that you learned (or were supposed to learn) in high school and college? Every good writer knows that you can't write a good paper if you don't have a thesis~a topic, a subject, a main idea. If your main idea isn't clear, you've lost the reader and pretty much, your paper will suck. However, if you have a good thesis and a captivating subject, you will gain the reader's interest, and hopefully their respect.

I feel like my life is a formal paper and I have no idea what my thesis is. I have no subject; therefore, my "paper" sucks. I'm writing the story of my life and I have.... writer's block.

Since everyone is commenting, when I say my "utility" bill, that means my water and trash. They call it my Rockwall Utility Bill~that's not including my electricity. That's a completely different, more expensive bill! However, mine's nowhere near $300 Steph! How big is your house again?

Daily Praise!

I got my utility bill online yesterday and was surprised/shocked/thrilled when I read that my bill for October was: $39.05!!!!!

You will understand the reason for my excitement by knowing that last month's bill for September was : $116.24 :0(

Therefore, by subtracting last month's bill and this month's bill, I have a total of
- 39.05
$ 77.19

$77.19 left to spend however I want! Whoo hoo!

Can you tell how excited I am?!! This NEVER

happens! Thank you Jesus!

TAG! You're it!

I've been tagged by Shyanne! I've been instructed to write 7 things about myself- strange, crazy, funny but all true.

  1. I will not touch/eat any type of white dairy products (with the exception of ice cream and chesse).
  2. I will never, ever, go without having my toenails painted. They are always painted.
  3. I am the sappiest romantic you will ever meet.
  4. One thing that makes my day, is throwing the football around with the boys during recess.
  5. Reading a good book is one of my favorite things to do.
  6. I have never broken a bone on my body or had to go to the hospital. I was always secretly jealous of the people who did, and always wished I could break something.
  7. One day I hope to own a ranch and raise my own horses.

I tag Sarah Collier and Tyly!

I really don't think I can take any more...

Let's just say that this past weekend, I received information that shocked me. Information that I would have never DREAMED of imagining (from these people that I receieved this information from).

For the sake of certain people involved, I can't post what happened on the internet. I will say is that I had absolutely NO idea what to do..or how to handle it. I had a big burden on my heart, and all I could do was cry out to God.

I know that everything happens for a reason, and God has a purpose for this information being revealed to me. Saying that I'm grateful for God's mercy and forgiveness in my own life doesn't even begin to portray the amount of emotion that I'm feeling.

Thank you Jesus that you are mighty and stronger than I am! Thank you that I don't have to deal with the drama and problems of this world that I have absolutely no control of. Thank you for allowing me to grow up in a godly, Christian home, with parents who loved you, and each other enough that they raised their children in your Word. Thank you Jesus for protecting me from the evil that surrounds me daily. I thank you for allowing me to put my problems into your hands and know that I don't have to deal with it anymore, because you are sovereign. Above all I thank you for loving me enough to die on the cross, and saving me from my sins!

Football Game

We went to Chase's game last night~it was a good game even though they lost. Chase was AWESOME! I just know that during the first half he probably had around 15 tackles, so no telling what he ended up having for the whole game! Here are a few pictures of me with Chase, Charity and Chandler.

Do I dare....

Say that fall might have actually arrived?! Today has been BEAUTIFUL! My sister and her boyfriend came to visit and Luke was a darling and mowed my front AND back yard for me this afternoon! :0) Charity and I got busy cleaning outside and took care of some wasp nests and treating some ant beds. It was just a good feeling to be outside doing yard work in the beautiful fall weather. I love it!

I haven't heard any updates on Jacque's grandfather today. I talked to her yesterday and she said they arrived there safely and got to spend some time with him. He was doing much better and they hoped that he would be released today. I'll update more when I hear from her again.

Oh, one last thing. Tech wrecked up again on A&M today 35-7! Yeah baby ;0)

Prayer Request

Hey guys! Please be praying for my friend Jacque and her family. They found out last night that her grandfather had a stroke. He's in the hospital doing ok. They said he is stable and lucid, but they're just hoping that he's not going to have another bigger stroke. Jacque and Jason are on the road driving right now, so please pray for their trip. Thanks!

It's time for Charlie/Charlotte to DIE!!!!!!!!

If you're confused about the names on my title, refer to my friend Cassandra's post here. Unfortunately, I do not share her sentiments about appreciating Charlie! I ABHOR spiders of any shape, color, and kind. I would rather deal with anything but spiders. Seeing how I feel this way, of course I would find them in and outside of my new house. No joke, there were all kinds of webs on my back porch, and when I was trying to wash of my back porch, I saw about 4 different kinds of spiders. Since then, I have killed a big one in my living room and my bathroom. Today I went back outside to check on the situation and saw another big web, but no spider. So I decided to wash off my back sliding door. Right after I finished, I see TWO medium spiders trying to crawl out. I also had some ant spray out there, so I just sprayed and swatted them to death. I finished in the back and went around to the front.

I then saw one big black spider trying to carry its supper back to wherever it's hiding at my house. It was up on my house, and too high for me to reach, so I decide to go get my broom. I got the broom, came back outside, and proceeded to knock the spider. First I didn't get him, but I did knock his food out of his mouth, then I knocked him off the second time. No joke, the spider is like freakin James Bond or something and comes suspending down like he's on a rope. I'm just staring at him as he quickly drops to the ground and disappears into the grass. Dang spider...well at least he doesn't have any supper! :0)

THEN I was inspecting some more (I'm pretty sure if my neighbors were looking, they thought I was insane) and I saw a HUGE spider. Likewise, I knocked down the web, knocked him down, except this time he fell into a bush. I think he was playing dead, but when I tried to move him over so I could kill him good, he suspended back up! I knocked him down again, but this time I have no idea where he went!

I am going to definitely break down and call pest control tomorrow. I can't take any more of this. I HATE SPIDERS!!!

"17 Seconds"

I just wish that I could watch this episode one time and not cry..heck, just this scene~but I can't. You want to know what got me obsessed with Grey's Anatomy...hook, line, and sinker? Denny and Izzie. I can't wait until I'm looked at, the way he looks at her. The end.


Just wanted to post an update on my car. I took it to the mechanic and turns out that it WAS the battery! So FYI, don't go to AutoZone and get them to test your battery. It was still a little more expensive then I normally pay for a battery, but they gave me a really good one, put it in AND fixed my door that's been broken for a long time. So I'm just thankful that it wasn't anything more expensive! Thank you Jesus for always providing! :0)

I HATE it when people

  1. say that they're going to do something, and then don't do it
  2. don't keep their commitments
  3. don't call you back..reguardless of whether or not you left a message
  4. think "sorry" fixes everything...

Prayer Request

Ok so added to the prayer request for the roommate, please add one that my car will fix itself! The past day or so, it has been turning over, not wanting to start-then it will just start. I thought it was the battery, so I took it to AutoZone to have them test it. He did, and said it wasn't my battery. He thinks it might be the alternator? Great, the price just went up. So I called my dad and doesn't think that it's the alternator. He said that when your A is going out, it draws from your battery. Therefore, if battery is fine, A should be fine. He thinks that it's the starter. Ok, price just went WAY up. Add that to the fact that I don't have a mechanic, have no idea what to do, and have no money, I pretty much just want to sit down and cry. Even the fact that it's now the weekend is doing nothing to cheer me up.

Roommate Wanted

So because of situations beyond my control (although I would love it if they were) I am having to find a roommate to help out with my living expenses. I know this is probably going to be very hard to do, but nothing's impossible with God and a lot of prayer right?! So that's what I need from you..prayer. Please be praying that God brings a young, Christian, woman into my life that I can live with! Oh and as soon as possible would be awesome! :0) Thanks guys and I'll keep you updated!

just call me the arsonist

yes so twice this week I have almost set my house on fire (or could have). I come home from work on Tuesday and discover that I have left my Chi on all day long! Tonight I went into my guest bathroom, and remembered that I had turned on my candle on the candle warmer thing-LAST NIGHT! It was on all NIGHT and all TODAY!! Geez Louise! I'm gonna burn myself up. This will most definitely NOT be something that I tell the fire fighters that are coming to speak at my school tomorrow ;0)

Grey's-you're killin me

so this is what made me bawl first it was the whole scene, but I was listening to the words of the sad..I had mascara running down my face-and didn't care. I saw a glimpse of McDreamy being McDreamy tonight instead of McSleezy..and I didn't like it..he's still McSleezy in my book until he makes some major changes. 3 discs down, 2 to go. Everyone remember..keep your mouths shut! Not a word! :0)

Praising Him

I of course was snooping through blogs the other day, and I found this one on Kylah's friend's page. I believe that God wanted me to read this blog, like it was meant, just for me. Read on.

We moved from Petersburg, VA to Killeen, TX in 1983. We had not yet sold our home back in VA and were renting in Killeen - so two house payments, plus a son in college and two sons in Christian school, and I had not yet gone to work. I prayed and prayed that we would hear our home had sold, but nothing. One morning while praying, it was so clear to me - not an audible voice, but definitely words that I knew came from God, telling me that He heard me, He was NOT deaf, did not even have a tad of a hearing problem and starting that day I was supposed to praise Him for the selling of our home. It hit me right in the heart and I immediately started praising the Lord because I knew I had heard from the Lord. Later that day our realtor called to tell us that he was taking someone to look at our house and I KNEW without a doubt those people were going to buy our home in VA. You know the answer - they bought. Just remember God does hear, has perfect hearing and we only have to ask, trust and believe. Too simple??? Psalm 6, verse 9 - "The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer."

God spoke to me, and said that just like this lady begain praising God in the selling of her home, that I was to begin praising God for bringing my husband to me. I never thought of it that way, but I have completely been acting like God is deaf and hasn't heard my cries! I am such a sinful, human being. So that's what I've begun to do, and will keep doing..praising, trusting, and believing.

It didn't..

take me until the last episode of season 2 to get me to cry Cass! I think it was episode 6 on disc 2, "Like a Train Into You" (I think that's what it's called) and I was BAWLING! Yes, sitting in my living room, middle of the day, bawling. It was the episode of the train wreck, with the girl and man speared through with the pole. Plus the ending with Meridith and McDreamy..or McSleezy as I like to call him now. Ugh he just makes me so MAD! Maybe my opinion of him will hopefully change in the rest of the season?! Now, I have a headache from all that crying..geezz

Grey's Update

I am happy to report that I finished all of season 2:disc 1 tonight and am MUCH happier with this season! I think I have laughed more tonight than I have with any of the first season. It was just so serious. However, I can say it's not as much in season 2 that I can tell. Right now there's not one of the characters that I'm not in love with..well except Addison and the Chief whoever (that just had brain surgery). I think that it's safe to say that I am pretty much hooked! Now, just 4 discs left before I can start on season 3! Whoo hoo!

P.S. the definite "awwww" moment tonight for me, was when Christina had the small breakdown and couldn't stop crying, and Burke walked in. When he tried to touch Christina, her mother said that she didn't want anyone to touch her. He just looked at her, took off his jacket, and then crawled into the hospital bed with her and held her while she cried *sigh*. I'm not afraid to admit that a tear might have been cried when I saw that! I loved it~

Some things that I DO like!

  1. the fact that tomorrow I don't have to go to school because it's Fair Day!
  2. I just went to Blockbuster and rented the whole second season of Grey's Anatomy!
  3. I have a whole week to watch them!
  4. knowing that I have leftover yummy scalloped potatoes in my fridge that I'm having again for dinner..yes, they are that good
  5. I get to sleep in tomorrow morning
  6. Jilly is coming this weekend
  7. this is only a four day week
  8. I'm doing TPRI testing next week, so I get to have a sub all day!
  9. firemen are coming to my school on Friday and I'm sure that they'll all be single and hot..right??!!
  10. I got to feel baby Brody kick for the very first time today! PRECIOUS! I'm off to eat my dinner and start my Grey's catch up marathon!

Some things that I really DON'T like.

  1. seeing a very large spider crawl across my living room floor
  2. seeing another large spider in my bathroom
  3. seeing several different types of spiders outside on the back of my house
  4. calling my landlord and saying that I need the pest control to come out to get rid of the spiders, and also some other work orders done around my house that he should have taken care of-then him telling me that it's MY responsibility to take care of these things..but he can recommend a great pest control company to me! (this is where I wanted to punch him)
  5. my computer being stupid and shutting down every time I try to open a new window
  7. not having any money any more since I got this stupid house..someone remind me again why I wanted it?
  8. almost 2 hour faculty meetings
  9. spiders
  10. spiders

Those are just a few things :0)
