Busy Week!!

I love to stay busy...I think! This week made me second guess it just a bit, but it was still enjoyable! Mondays are always a bit more busy than what they used to be since we meet with our small group from Athens Church. It's amazing what God can do if you give him some effort and attention. We are feeling very blessed! It's great to meet 6 other couples who are in the same part of life and support each other.

Tuesday I had a bit of a headache, so I missed class. For those of you who don't know I am in my L-6 Specialists Program for Leadership in School Admin. I can't wait to finish, but it's another great group of people that look out for each other...told you I am blessed! Ryan's been working a little bit later because tax season is right around the corner. The house had to be straightened up since guests would be over on Wednesday for a gorgeous jewelry party.

Wednesday was a great day at work, like always, and then home to make the pumpkin bread for the party. My mom has the best recipe for pumpkin bread! I think it was a hit. The girls all came around 7 and we had some social time and laughs and then Kim arrived from Premier Jewelry. Kim and I have been friends for almost 8 years. Time flies!!! She called me about a month ago and asked her if I would have a party for her to show the jewelry and I said of course. She is doing this on top of being a mother baby nurse. She loves to stay busy as well. Thanks to all of the ladies who came out mid-week to hang out! :)

Thursday .... so busy! I was a bit tired from the excitement the evening before, so I wasn't sure how happy I'd be. BUT, did you know coffee helps me out a lot!!! I brewed some Starbucks coffee on strong and left with a full cup! I was good to go. After school we had a meeting for a field trip our classes will be going on. It's a big deal since it's an overnight trip. The parents and kids are super excited about it. I hope Pam gets excited too! Last time we went a mouse (sounds better that a rat) got into my bag and she hasn't wanted to go back yet! After the meeting we had Health Night in the gym! It was the most exciting PTO ever. Our school is on a huge health kick which is here to stay. During the school day - everyday - we get a healthy snack (some fruit or veggie). Now, we also have a new Health M Powers curriculum that makes us get up and move during the day. It's neat to see EVERYONE so excited about making their lives healthy. :) I finally made it home and Ryan had a little bit of pizza (natural) waiting for me. I love him!

Friday - the most adventurous day yet! Little Lyla came to school with me! We are studying genetics and specifically about learned behaviors and inherited traits. It was a lot of fun and she was on her best behavior. The part that stressed me out the most was worrying about her AND all of my students. At the end of the day she showed off her tricks she has LEARNED so far, Zander the police dog came, and Pam's Shelty Buffy! It truly was the day of the dogs. I ended the day with a movie with a close friend, dinner, and lots of laughs!

Saturday finally arrived! I have been looking forward to this day! I went to my fantastic hairdresser who let me relax and we talked the morning away. She is great and knows just what to do - great hairdressers are like this and I have had many in my life! :) Then, football, football, football...even though GA wasn't on TV it was a great night!

Sunday is here and I am about to grocery shop, hit up Mal's bday paint party, and then go to a corn maze with my hubby! Pics from the week should be posted soon!

I hope you have a great week and THANK GOD for all he has done!

Fall has arrived...

I have been obsessed with checking out all of the cool fall decor on these blogs...Thrifty Decor Chick, The Nester, and Hooked on Houses! The Nester and Hooked on houses have open houses and mantel parties going on right now! Check them out and get some ideas!

Here is what our home looks like for the Autumn season.

in guest bedroom: my painted polka-dot pumpkin!

my homemade wreath! Total cost: $10! I love the added touch of glitter spray!

I think we are ready for the fall season! What about you? What do you do to celebrate fall?

Danielle's Wedding Weekend


Danielle and Jon were hitched on Oct. 2nd! It was a gorgeous, classy ceremony and reception.

The weather on Saturday was to die for. It was a nice temperature with a small breeze. Have I ever mentioned in my next life I would love to be a weather lady?!! JK! I met Danielle at her house and we rode to the salon together. It was nice because it gave us time to talk! :)

At the salon they did our hair, air-brush makeup, and all of us had time for girl talk. I can't stress how wonderful Danielle's girls are. It was a blessing to connect with them. Once we were finished we were driven in a limo to the church where we took pictures! I snapped some too! The link is below.

Then, before we knew it the ceremony was about to begin. At the very last minute Ryan sent Danielle's cousin in with the hankie I ordered a while back! It hadn't arrived before I left that morning, so I wasn't sure if she'd get it or not! I had her monogram and wedding date stitched in blue, so she could have it during the wedding...her SOMETHING BLUE! There were other sweet touches that made the day special to her.

The ceremony was beautiful and special. I loved the prayer time the entire congregation had for them. It was powerful. Danielle and Jon smiled the whole time...just precious.

The reception was out of a fairy tale...again check out the pics! I love pink and that's what was all around. Even our dresses were HOT PINK! Right up my alley. I gave my speech...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8RBBNQtspU&videos=G31AvEUBsdo&feature=BF, Chels, and the Best Man gave theirs and we danced!!! We also got to enjoy the PHOTO BOOTH! It was too much fun with all of the props they provided. My mom got in with me and Erin and we laughed and posed!

Then, they ran down a path of giant sparklers and were off to the Bahamas! I know they will be blessed!

Love you both and congrats!

For now check out the pics...Danielle's Wedding!
