Things on my to-do list today:
1. Go to the bank (check)
2. Watch Chris at baseball practice
3. Go on a motorcycle ride with Aaron
4. Cook and amazing dinner
5. Start my lesson plans for next week
What would I do if I became loaded:
1. Open a savings account and horde away lots of money
2. Buy Aaron a new car
3. Quit work and take monthly vacations
4. Have a couple great vacation homes
Three of my bad habits:
1. Waking up WAY late and then leaving WAY late for work
2. Procrastinating at work (like right now)
3. Eating yummy Reeces Peanut Butter cups even though I know they're not included in my "healthy living" diet
Five jobs I've had:
1. WRBN Ministry Assistant
2. Legacy Family Ministries Ministry Assistant
3.RISD Substitute Teacher
4. Life Guard for 7 years
5.Model Home Cleaner - I cleaned model homes (so boring!)
Five things people don't know about me:
1. I LOVE brushing my teeth
2. I hate going out to eat after church... I always feel like its a complete waste of time unless we go somewhere really quick like Subway.
3. I like taking walks with Aaron
4. My co-worker Edna says "fiddle-dee-dee" and I think its awesome
5. I really want a pair of William Rast jeans, but they cost almost $200 - is that too much to spend on jeans? ( I think so, but I'm still craving them!)
Thanks Jen.. I stole this from your post

I hate admitting it, but I am a horrible cook. I used to think I was decent (actually I am decent at pasta - too bad Aaron doesn't really like pasta). Anyways, I don't really enjoy cooking and after working from 8:00-5:00 and then wasting away in class until 9:00, I don't really have time to hang out in the kitchen serving up gourmet dishes. And on top of all that - Aaron is a WAY worse cook than I am, so Chris and I do our best to keep him out of the kitchen.
Thankfully, a wonderful woman at church told me about her daughter's blog. Traca must be an amazing cook because I love all her recipes. I haven't actually tried any yet, but just reading them makes my mouth start watering (probably because I'm sitting in classs and the last thing I ate was a Slim Fast bar). I hope to try a couple of them out sometime this weekend... I'll let you know how it goes.
Take a look and feel free to try a couple of her recipes http://cookreadandbemerry.blogspot.com/

Ahhh I’m sitting here listening to my coworker go on and on and on about how hard her job is… She kills me! Her job is very tedious and honestly very boring, but hard? My goodness woman – Be QUIET! I prayed this morning about encouraging people around me, but this much complaining seems a little out of my league.
Have you ever noticed how a lie starts to eat you up inside? I told a lie a few days ago and I have been feeling horrible ever since. I’ve confessed it to God and to my husband, but I just can’t seem to bring myself to confess it to the person I lied to.
Ughhh its just disgusting that I haven’t confessed it yet, but I really don’t want to deal with it. The ironic part is that Aaron and I had to have a LOOoong talk with Chris last night about honesty. He has been lying to us about some school stuff lately and it all came out in the open yesterday. It was a great talk and I was so proud of Aaron (he’s such a great dad!), but the whole time I knew that my own heart wasn’t pure.
Sometimes being a Christian can be so frustrating, but thankfully I serve such a good God!
PS – Sorry for the lack of pictures on the blog; I’ve been really bad about taking pictures lately

Mr. Principal called last night around 5:00...I was sitting in my teacher prep class minding my own business when all of the sudden my phone started to ring. I answered it thinking that it might be someone from work or maybe a family member. Nope..it was Mr. Principal asking if I could come in for a second interview. Ahhh, I can't believe it - I got a second interview!!!!!
I've been a smiling stress head ever since. You might be wondering what a "smiling stress head" is. You know, its when you're super pumped but you think you might puke at any moment because your nerves are shot. Yep - thats been me. Thank goodness we took a mini vaycay home this past Sunday. It was my sister's birthday, but I made sure I took a pit stop in my mom's closet. I just had this feeling that I might need some uber cute clothes to wear. Yep, my premonition paid off. So, today I'm sitting in my little office looking absolutely amazing. I've got on my mom's silky BCBG white lace shirt, black pants, and some killer black heels - I'm gonna kick some "A" in this interview today!!!!!
