Ohh Today...

Well it's been another one of those weeks. Or months. I feel pretty awful for not posting in so long but really I had no desire to last week, it was a rough one. My wonderful fiance was out of town aaallllllllll week. So I was home alone and it was no fun :( So I was sad and pouty and didn't dare try to do a post with that sour puss attitude. Although my BFF Jennie did make the 2 hour trip to come spend a few days with me which definitely brightened my mood and made me happy! She really is the best friend a girl could ask for, such a blessing. And on Monday a young woman in my church passed away from a boating accident and it took a big toll on me. So between Spence being gone and that terrible news I was a mopey Molly - again, Thank God Jennie came down to visit me! It made a pretty terrible week bearable.

Spencer got back on Friday so I've been spending every second with him and haven't even thought to jump on the computer til now (he's napping...otherwise I'd probably still be putting thing off, haha).

So two exciting things....:

{1.} We're taking our engagement pictures tonight!! AAHH!! So excited!! Right now I'm letting my hair air dry and just finished painting my toe nails...then it's on to hair and make-up! The weather outside is absolutely delightful - okay, right now it's actually a little hot (91 degrees...) but it should be cool(er) by the time we take our pictures - and it should be a gorgeous West Texas sunset - Yay! :)

{2.} Remember the "Big News" I had talked about...ohh...two weeks ago or so (I know, I'm terrible - please forgive me!)? Well, here it is: I GOT MY FIRST JOB!! Let me clarify, I've been working since I was 15, all part-time jobs, most of them waitressing; I graduated from college last May and found it basically impossible to get a full-time "real" job (thank you stinky economy); I've been working as a part-time Administrative Assistant for the past 6 months and have been applying and interviewing for full-time positions since I moved back in October. So I am super stoked I have finally gotten a full-time gig. Perserverence paid off.

So what is it, you ask? I'll be teaching 8th grade Social Studies and coaching volleyball and track at one of the junior highs!! I can't believe it and am ecstatic about it!! I'm also pretty nervous. It is my first job, and not just first "real" job, but also my first teaching job. Sure I've taught Sunday school (to 2 and 3 year olds...) and have volunteered with 7th and 8th grade youth groups the past few years, but this is a whole new ball game. I can't wait to get in there though. I'm ready for this new adventure and I get to do something I'm passionate about: Making a difference in a child's life. Woo-hoo! :)

Well that's all for now, hope everyone has an amazing Sunday!!

I'm just a small town girl with big dreams and an open heart. I truly believe that all you need is Love and to look to the Lord whatever may come your way. Engaged to my forever love and planning a September wedding, just finished my first year of teaching, and working on becoming a "real" grown-up: This is the story of my journey, however topsy-turvey and chaotic it might be... :)
