Winds of change...

Welp back to reality tomorrow, Spring Break was is over. (Yes I am an adult and still get a spring break, gotta love working in schools!) We did absolutly nothing, but thats just what we needed. I have loved just getting to be at home with Frank. Typically I only get to see him for more than an hour a couple days each week. He's a busy bee working full time and going to school full time. Only 56 days until his graduation! I don't know who is more excited ha!

We've been really thinking lately about what path we are going to be taking together. We both wonder if we've chosen the correct career paths. There may or may not be a big change coming soon. But all that really matters to me is that wherever we go, we go together.

Do you hear a truck?

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the items I ordered from Express last week. Its killing me. I keep looking at the little tracking page that says "items are being delivered". I'm really hoping I can wear one of the new shirts tonight.

Things that are distracting me:

Dixie's cuteness

The nerdiness of my husband, who is super into Stargate SG1 at the moment. Thank you netfilx for afflicting our household with your wide range of SciFi gems.

I think its time to feed my NCIS addiction...greatest show ever

These are a few of my favorite things...

When the dog barks
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad L

I really wish the Sound of Music was on today. Instead I'm doing a quickie post on a few of my favorite things.
1. My new airbrush makeup! (I've loved airbrush for a long time and am so happy they are coming out with cheaper options)
2. Willow Tree Figurines
               My mom collected these and now remind me of her. We used one as our cake topper.

3. Nude pumps.
I have been searching for a loong time for the perfect pair to purchase. Maybe someday...
4. This guy.
He and his friends made an "igloo" during their snowboarding trip. This picture makes me laugh everytime.

25 Before 25

I'm on a blogging streak, so let’s keep it going!

I love all the "52 things in 2012" and "25 before 25" posts I've seen. I turn 25 this September. That gives me a whopping 29 weeks to accomplish my 25 things. I may or may not have just wasted 10 minutes of my life searching for a calendar before remembering I'm on a laptop.

Totally unrelated but check out this love bug! I’m a little obsessed with this fur angel.

A lot of people see Lent as a sort of "New Years resolution" for God. I promise not to eat junk food until Easter, I wont drink Dr. Pappers...etc. This is okay to an extent, but what you should really be doing is making a change that draws you in closer with God. Instead of giving something up, take something up. Volunteer during Lent, make an effort to pray more, be kinder. What I plan to do is set aside 30 minutes each evening to just read the Bible. I have to admit that I've never just read the entire book straigh through before. I really dont want to go to Heaven one day and explain why I could read 7 Harry Potters and 4 Twilights but couldn't read the 1 book for God....might look bad.

Rejoice always, pray continually,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
