I know, I know..I've turned into a horrible blogger/poster..SO SUE ME!! Anybody else teaching full time, in grad school, planning a wedding, and buying a house at the same time? I DIDN'T THINK SO! Geezzz..
Haha, just kidding! I feel horrible that I haven't been posting lately, but I just honestly can't find the time to do it. But I sure do keep reading..ask Bryan. :)
Well, I'm only on here again to get what I want from you, and that's paint recommendations/suggestions! Bryan and I are still set to close on April 15th, and sadly we are going to have to paint almost the whole inside of the house. You can imagine how excited Bryan is! Hehe..but I'm sorry. I can't deal with mustard, baby poop green, and light blue all over my house! :)
This is where ya'll come in. All you painters out there, what type do we buy? What's the best brand, any good deals, good tips to make sure we know. I'll take anything you can give! Haha..
Well, I love reading what's going on with everyone! Comment away with all your suggestions! Thanks!

This year has been completely refining for both myself and Bryan. Our relationship has been through so much, but we've learned from it all..the good and the bad..and grown stronger from it. I can't wait until I get to become Mrs. Bryan Moss and spend the rest of my life with such an amazing man. I love you baby!
HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!

tr.v. cher·ished, cher·ish·ing, cher·ish·es
1. To treat with tenderness and affection; to nurture with care; to protect and aid; hold dear.
Cherish. I LOVE this word! I think to many people it means different things; however, I know that we all have something/someone that we cherish.
Tonight I had the pleasure of babysitting for my future flower girl, and her little brothers. This is honestly one of my favorite things to do! If you know me, then you know how much I truly love children. You will also know that I am going to be an amazing mother one day! :) I have known this fact and had this desire to be a mother since I was a little girl. Tonight I got to spend time with the kids, cooking their dinner, helping with homework, and giving baths. Some people might not share my excitement of babysitting and might choose to not touch it with a ten foot pole. But not me. :) I cherish it.
One of the things that I especially cherish when I babysit for this family is bedtime with the baby. I love giving him his bath, getting his little pj's on, and then rocking him to sleep. I can honestly say that there is nothing like the feeling of rocking a baby to sleep. I love that he's so small and just curls up on my chest. I love just sitting in the dark, being swayed by the motions of the rocking chair. I love the smell of Johnson's and Johnson's baby wash in his hair. In fact, I will smell his precious baby head several times while rocking him to sleep. :) I love the fact that now he knows me so well, he doesn't fuss or cry at all. He just lays down and goes to sleep. These times are precious to me. I know that he won't always be a baby..one day he's going to be a little boy, who will turn into a teenager, who will one day be a grown man. But for now, he is a beautiful precious baby, and tonight he layed his head down on my shoulder and I rocked him to sleep.
That is one moment that I will always cherish!

The Thursday before Valentine's Day, I received a package at school. In this package were red tulips and some yummy Godiva chocolates, with a sweet note from my fiancee! He knows how much I love getting flowers at school, and it was also our 11 month anniversary, so he sent flowers early so I could enjoy them before I came to Shreveport. So sweet!
I went to Shreveport that weekend and spent Valentine's Day with Bryan and his family. When I woke up on Saturday morning, I woke to see these beautiful flowers!
Bryan said that he also wanted to me to have Shreveport flowers, so yes, I got two sets of flowers. Isn't he amazing?!! Yes, I know, I'm spoiled. :)
Here's a close up of one of the lilies in my arrangement. I thought it was beautiful!
Valentine's Day night we got all dressed up and went and ate at a yummy Italian restaurant in Shreveport. We just spent the night together, and it was a great night! Our first official Valentine's Day as a couple was a great success! I love you Bryan Mitchell Moss! :)
YEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! You need to understand that seeing these two artists in concert TOGETHER is something that Jacque, Jason, and I have been hoping, wishing, and dreaming of, for most of our lives. Being able to see them both in concert has always just been a dream..that for all of us actually came true last week! THAT'S RIGHT! We all (Jacque, Jason, Bryan, and I) all got tickets (amazing tickets!!) to the June 6th concert!!! WHOOO HOOO! It's going to be perfect timing because that is literally the Saturday that I get out of school! I can't think of a better way to kick off the summer! ;)
The best part is that we got the tickets in the mail yesterday. Oh yes, here they are for your viewing pleasure!! Be jealous, be very jealous!!!
This past weekend I drove to Louisiana, then did MORE driving with Bryan down to Hammond, LA for a gymnastics meet. We got down there Friday night, and came back yesterday afternoon. I didn't feel like driving/being in the car for a total of 6.5 hrs on Sunday, so I took off today, and stayed in Shreveport. I'm glad I did, because I'm glad I finally get to see Bryan in the classroom. He's seen me many times, but I've never had the chance to spend the day with him at school, so I decided to go ahead and do it! We had a good weekend, just a lot of driving!
I'm going to try and catch everybody up with what's been going on the past few weeks, so I'm just going to split it up and do a lot of little posts! The more the better!
Hope ya'll have a great day and a great week!
