it's a long one!

i have sooo much to say tonight, and since i've made 2...that's right...TWO...trips to starbucks today, i'm wide awake to share it all!

first, i led another disciple now at a church in a neighboring county. it was tons of fun. we talked about putting on the armor of God. i had middle school girls, so you can only image the conversations we had while on our sugar highs! here are a couple of cute pics...second...a HUGE THANKS to martha! for this amazing RAK! LOVE IT!!!

third...happy birthday Brett! we all went to ESPN Zone last night for dinner. great fun...and pretty good food! here are some shots of the night...

this is the group...those that came. the next one is what happens when people try to take normal pictures of phillip! it's amazing because dani is always smiling...hmmm...fake smile???

brett and mo...sooo cute! i just love this one!

then there's stephie and me...i guess phil's not the only one who can't take a normal picture!

as if all of that wasn't's a random list of things that have made me happy or made me think over the past couple of days...
:) have you ever driven down the road and in front of you the sky is blue and getting dark, behind you the sky is pink (gorgeous!), the sun is to your left, and the moon to your right. AMAZING!!!
:) do you have a friend you can be mad at, put all your cards on the table, talk for an hour on the phone, then wind up scrapping together all night? if you don't have a wonderful best friend you can do all of this with...within 24 should find one! a best friend is such a blessing!
:) tv on dvd...i may have said this before, but one of the best creations EVER...other than google!
:( the future...why is everyone i know getting engaged or married. i'm the oldest, it should be me!!!

ok...that's all for now. let me know what you're thinking about today...

first, i want to say that VaTech is in my prayers and will be for the tragedy that occured this morning. it's so scary to think about something like this happening in a school. you just never know what can happen. that's why i thank God for every day that he allows me to stay on this earth.

it's so nice to have the day off! the day was very uneventful...actually totally uneventful! i finished the first page for my 2006 scrapbook, watched A LOT of tv, but i did make dinner. i so enjoy days like this!

there are 70 little pics on there from the year!

here are a few more pics from Easter...just me and the parentals...

hope you all have a great week!!!!!

ps...hey holly :)

Monday, April 9, 2007


hope you all had a fabulous Easter. as you spent time with friends and family, i hope you had time to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday...this is the most important day in history!

here is my favorite pic from the day...since i have no husband or kids, i go straight for the kitty-pooh!

there are a few more that may go up later in the week.

only 4 more days of the long term sub i'm doing right now. i really do love teaching, but when you're in someone else's classroom with her rules, it's VERY difficult! can't wait for my own room again next year!

in scrappy news...i just love this site! the people on it are the sweetest!
have a marvelous monday!!! only 4 more days till the weekend :)

ps...what do you think about the new colors? i felt it needed to be a little more springy!

happy :)

i'm in a good mood, so i wanted to share some of the things that have been making me happy over the past couple of days...
*BASEBALL SEASON!!! i just love the braves, and while football is my favorite sport, i can't get enough of the all-American past time! as i write this, i'm taking a break from scrapping while i watch the Braves and Phillies!
*...which brings me to scrapping! i just finished a page in less than an hour, which i never do! it's pretty plain, but i think i like it!
*yesterday, i rode past a bank. there was a cute old-man security guard standing outside with a lollipop! way to precious!
*great new scrappy site i've joined. i heard of it from becky's blog...thanks:)
*my mom came to my house and spent the night last night. she even made a few cards while holly and i worked on our stuff.
*peanut butter milk shakes...enough said!
*a new show i found on bravo today called top design. it's like a reality show for interior designers...fabulous!
*people reading my blog! this makes me incredibly happy! if i had any money at all, i would send out an RAK...however, i do not! just wait until i start teaching again. as soon as the paychecks come in, i'll be sending stuff to y'all all the time!!! make sure you leave comments though...i just love that :)

i hope these things can give you the warm-fuzzies like they do me!
have a wonderful wednesday!!!!!!!!!!
