blog designers anyone?

So, I realized that after blogging for, oh almost 4 years, it was probably time to for an official blog design! I would love to hear from you who you used, who's your favorite, ect. I've seen some pretty cute stuff out there, but don't know where you got it from! Any info you have would be much appreciated! I want something professionally designed, but also don't want to spend an arm and a leg on it. Thanks girls!

Spring Break 2011!

Spring break was wonderful this year! I'm trying not to be too upset that it's over, but glad that I finished another week back to school! I keep reminding myself that the faster we go back, the faster we get out! ;)

We started off our spring break this year fast and furious! Charity and Luke drove in from Nashville and stopped by on their way to my parent's house. We also had Morgan and Chris come down and spend the night with us all that Friday night. It was one great, big, slumber party! We went to the harbor and ate at Gloria's then headed to Twisty Treats for some yummy frozen yogurt. We spent the rest of the night laughing and having lots of fun! It was such a sweet time spent with friends! On Saturday, we packed up and then drove down to Lorena to spend a couple of days with my parents. I also had the chance to see Kyrbie and baby Lexi! It was so good to see everyone!

Monday morning, Bryan and I continued our trip by heading to San Antonio. We took the loop around Austin and that was SO much faster than actually driving through Austin! We will definitely be doing that again! We arrived in San Antonio and got checked into our hotel. We stayed at the Sheraton Gunter and it was a historical hotel, downtown, literally 2 blocks from the Riverwalk. We parked when we got there and never drove again until we left! We walked everywhere and it was so nice! We did a little shopping and saw the movie "Beastly". Yes, I liked it and Bryan was really sweet to let me pick the movie! He said it wasn't as bad as he thought it was going to be!

We went to dinner at Landry's and it was super yummy! Very delicious seafood! We visited the Alamo and had a great time. I wanted to go inside, but when I saw the line that wrapped around the building, I quickly changed my mind and we just walked around the area outside!




We spent the rest of our time being lazy and watching tv in our hotel! It was so great being lazy and having nothing to do! We headed back to Rockwall on Wednesday and then went dancing with some friends at Southern Junction. Thursday night Mom and Rachel came down and we went shopping on Friday at Market! We spent the rest of the night relaxing and enjoying our weekend. Sunday morning Bryan taught Sunday School, we went to luch with our friends at Joe Willy's after church, and then spent the afternoon with Wes and Amanda!

We had a busy spring break, but had a lot of fun with our friends and family! ;)

Answers to Your Questions!

Thank you so much to the lovely ladies that left me some questions to answer on my Q & A post! I was so excited to see your comments, and now without further ado:

Emily asked the question, " When do you and Bryan plan on trying to have babies?

Well, Emily, as much as I'd like to give you an exact date we're keeping this one a secret for now. I will say that we are planning on trying to get pregnant in the near future, but can't say when "near" is. And, no, I am not currently pregnant! :)


Lindsey asked, "Why don't you start your own teacher blog?"

Lindsey, if I'm being completely honest, I'd say that I don't think I'm good enough to start one! :) I actually never even knew there was such a thing until I just recently stumbled onto yours and several other teacher's blogs! After seeing all of everyone's amazing ideas, I think to myself that I could never be that good. One of my favorite things that I find are the free downloads that all of the teacher's post for free games, centers, etc. I know that they make all of them on their own and just off the top of their heads! I don't really know how to do that or have the graphics to make all that awesome cute stuff. I'm sure I could learn, but I just don't know how to. It may sound stupid, but I just don't have those creative ideas floating around in my head. However, if someone else can think of it, I can recreate it in my classroom like nobody's business! ;) I know that I don't have to make a lot of stuff, I could just post pictures of what I've done that week or ideas I had. We'll see! Maybe someday I'll learn how to, but for now, I'll just keep enjoying the fruits of everyone else's labor! ;)


Marlayna asked, "If you weren't a teacher what would you be?".

Hmm, good question! You know, I actually have several answers. Now, whether or not I could ACTUALLY do them if I wasn't teaching may be a different story! ;) If I wasn't a teacher, I wish I could be a musician. I would probably be singing my heart out on some stage, making an album, or playing the piano. I've been singing almost my entire life and when I went to ASU, I debated on majoring in music or education. Obviously, education won! If I wasn't singing, then I would have liked to have had a career in medicine; however, unfortunately, I do NOT have the brains for science AT ALL! Science slays me! I think seriously, if I couldn't teach, I would just be a stay at home Mommy! I mean, who wouldn't want to do that! I've also randomly wanted to go back and work @ ASU. I always thought that would be cool to go back as an alum and work there. I had a job working for the Athletic department while I was in college and loved it! I am definitely great at the secretary stuff! I'm neat, precise, and organized! Hopefully though, I won't have to put this plan into action (well, except that Mommy thing one day)!

Ashley actually asked me two questions! The first one was, "If you could have one last meal, what would it be??" and the second one was, "Where do you find your clothes?".

This is actually an easy one for me Ash! It would be Texas Roadhouse's ribs, mashed potatoes with extra gravy, several of their yummy rolls, a house salad with no tomatoes, extra eggs, and honey mustard dressing, and chocolate sheath cake! Yum!

As far as my clothes go, I'm a pretty simple woman! I mainly shop for clothes at Target, JCPenney's, Kohls, Old Navy, and Forever 21. I have never been one to spend lots of money on expensive jeans, or one shirt. I would much rather buy more for less, rather than only getting one item! Now, that doesn't mean I wouldn't like to buy a pair of Seven jeans though! I just can't make myself do it! I also almost never pay full price for anything. I am the sale queen! I can almost always find all of my things on sale! What can I say, it's a gift! ;)

Amy asked me, "Do you plan to have as large of a family as you grew up with?

Haha! That would be a NO! If you didn't already know, I am the oldest of 7 children, and Bryan is the second oldest of 4! Bryan and I both love big families, but definitely don't want to have 7 children. Our perfect number is 4! I think that's just right. We feel that we wouldn't know what to do with just 2, and I don't want an uneven number like 3. If God blesses us, then we want either 2 boys and 2 girls, or 3 boys and 1 girl. I don't really care though, as long as I get one of each!


Thank you girls so much for playing along! It was so much fun, and I definitely plan on doing it again in the future! You girls rock!! :)

A little Q & A! :)

Hey friends! I decided I wanted to try something new that I haven't done before. I feel like my blog has been boring lately, so I thought I would have a little Q & A session out there for all you fellow bloggers that would like to know me better! Feel free to ask any questions that you like and I'll do my best to answer them! Now, don't leave me hanging here! Ask whatever questions your little heart desires..serious, funny, embarrassing..I'll take them all! Can't wait to hear what you have to ask! :)

A Wonderful Lesson

I found this post on one of the blogs that I regularly stalk! I just love her and her stories about her kids are awesome! I loved the quotes that she posted and they really spoke to me! Everything was so true and I think she hit the nail on the head! Please make sure you take time to read it! ;)
