When You Think About It

When You Think About It......
Life is pretty good.

I may not have a boyfriend
or have the perfect friends.

I may not be the smartest,
but I have good grades for me.

I may not be the prettiest,
but I am me.

I may not have a perfect normal family,
but they love me and i love them

I may not be the perfect daycare worker,
but those kids love me and I love them

I may not have all the money in the world,
but I have more then I need.

My life may not be perfect,
but life has treated me pretty well.

I have some great friends and classmates that make the classes better and make me look forward to them.
I have a family that will love me no matter what.
I have some kiddos at work that make me love my job.
I have a car, money and so much more.
I have this beautiful life!

Oath by Cher Lloyd
"Yo, my best friend, best friend 'til the very end
Cause best friends, best friends don't have to pretend
You need a hand, and I'm right there right beside you
You in the dark, I'll be the bright light to guide you
'Member the time, time, times sneaking out the house
All of the time, time, times that you had your doubts
And don't forget all the trouble we got into
We got something you can't undo, do

Laughing so damn hard
Crashed your dad's new car
All the scars we share
I promise, I swear

Wherever you go, just always remember
That you got a home for now and forever
And if you get low, just call me whenever
This is my oath to you
Wherever you go, just always remember
You're never alone, we're birds of a feather
And we'll never change, no matter the weather
This is my oath to you

I know I drive you crazy, hmm, sometimes
I know I call you lazy, and that's most times
But you complete me, and that's no lie
You are my tuxedo, and I'm your bow tie
We in the car, sing, sing, singing our song
Rocking the building, tear it down, like we king kong
And in my eyes, you can do, do no wrong
You got a best friend sing, sing along

Laughing so damn hard
Crashed your dad's new car
All the scars we share
I promise, I swear

Wherever you go, just always remember
That you got a home for now and forever
And if you get low, just call me whenever
This is my oath to you
Wherever you go, just always remember
You're never alone, we're birds of a feather
And we'll never change, no matter the weather
This is my oath to you

Oh ohh, I'll never let you go
Oh ohh, whoa, this is my oath to you
Oh ohh, just stop then you should kno
Oh ohh, whoa, this is my oath to you


Wherever you go, just always remember
That you got a home for now and forever
And if you get low, just call me whenever
This is my oath to you
Wherever you go, just always remember
You're never alone, we're birds of a feather
And we'll never change, no matter the weather
This is my oath to you

Oh ohh
You should know, you should know, you should know, you should know, yeah
Oh ohh, whoa, this is my oath to you
Oh ohh
Wherever you go, just always remember
You're never alone, we're birds of a feather
And we'll never change, no matter the weather
Oh ohh, this is my oath to you"

Snapshot Poem January 2013

We have written 2 poems in Creative Writing, so here is the other.  Hope you enjoy :)
Worrying consumes my life
Worried about getting into the groove of new classes
filled with new faces.
Worrying about what people think about me
even though I know in my brain
I shouldn’t care.
Worrying about how i’ll pay for college
So many worries consume this young soul’s life
Spending too much time worrying
instead of living

Worrying if I am cut out to be a Kindergarten teacher
even though children are my passion
So many things fill the head of a senior in high school.
So many worries about the future
Wondering if what I want to do is right for me.
If this school is really where I want to go.
Wondering if I should go where my heart is
or go where my wallet wants me to go.

I am just a normal seventeen year old girl
trying to survive her senior year of High School.
Wondering if she is enjoying each moment to the fullest.
So many thoughts runs through my head
From school     to boys     to friends     to what to wear
to working at a daycare     to family     or even about being happy.
So many thoughts in this seventeen year olds head
revolve around wondering and worrying.

Gavin's Fourth Birthday Party

 Today I helped celebrate my 'baby' cousin turning four!!
The people I love <3
 I didn't notice til I looked at these pictures that he is missing a shoe!

I got to hold this cutie today!  Baby Will is my cousin's other side of the family so he isn't related to him, but I don't miss a chance to hold a baby!!
He's grown up since I held him in October.....
Hope your having a great weekend!  Nothing else planned for weekend besides church in the morning!  And I have to write a paper for English :(

Don't Cry Because It's Over

See my new blog design?!  I LOVE it!  So happy with what Jenn did!

This is a poem that I wrote in my Creative Writing class, had to share!  Hope you enjoy :)
“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”  -- Dr. Seuss

I sit here everyday and think about how much I miss you
About all the memories
and good times
we had together
Oh how I wish I could have those days back
But those days are over

I knew it was coming
I didn’t want our time together to be over
but nothing could prepare myself for it
How much you were on my mind
and how I wish you were here
Simple little things would remind me of you
and all of those times we had together
I miss you more than I ever thought I would

Whenever I talk to you
I can’t help but smile
It makes my day just to see
a text from you
Just for that little time we talk
it feels like old times

You always made me smile
I can’t count how many times I have
wished you were here
to cheer me up

Even though I wish I could go back
to those days
and relive them
I don’t cry because it’s over
I smile because it happened

A Look Back: First Semester of Senior Year

For looking back purpose, I am going to do a First Semester of Senior Year look back post.  
Senior year if full of lasts!  Trying to enjoy every second!
A quote about Senior Year......"One year ago we entered the school as seniors. We had senioritis before classes even resumed, we got to leave school early and come in late. Everything we did was the last … our last homecoming pep rally, our last season in a sport, our last birthday at home. One year ago we took our time together for granted, we went to party after party on the weekend, we rebelled, and we learned. One year ago, we still had the same best friend and cherished time spent with them. We started applying to college, far and near. We got accepted, we got rejected, we found exactly where we wanted to go. We realized that we would no longer have the comfort of home within a year."

My advice for 1st semester of Senior year:
  • Enjoy every second, the first semester flies by!
  • Keep your grades up even though it is easy to get Senioritis. :)
  • Get a job, it will teach your money saving skills and great experience.  Try to get a job that relates to what you want to do!
  • Go to your school sporting events!!

A Look Back: Junior Year

I did Freshman and Sophomore years so might as well do Junior year too! :)

Junior year is a crazy year.  It's another hard year and you gotta keep grades up, start thinking about College and taking the ACT. 
 A quote about Junior Year........."Two years ago we became upper classman. We began to realize that we were growing up. We started driving out on weekends. Two years ago we realized who our true friends were and cherished the times we spent with them. We found where we fit in, yet still seemed to be looking for something else. Two years ago we started talking about college, thinking it was still so far away. We had our junior prom, cheered our hardest at football games, and started to realize that time really does fly. But two years ago we still couldn't wait to get older."
My advice for Junior Year:
  • Keep working hard and keep your grades up!  It is the year your grades really matter!  
  • Enjoy your friends!  
  • You most likely will get to enjoy Prom!  
  • Cherish this year.  And don't take for granted the seniors because before you know it they will be gone and it will most likely be the hardest Senior year group to see go!

Spontaneous Times

Hello everyone, hope everyone is doing well! :)  I've made it through answer week of school, wohoo!  I get to celebrate with a 3 day weekend. ;)  

Friday night after work I came home and then Kayleen & I decided to go rent Pitch Perfect and get some desert.  Around 7:30pm, I went to her house and then we went to the red box at Walmart.  Then we went back in town for Sonic but it was crazy busy and with a much of teenagers standing around.  So we decided to just go to Red Mango, that is our place!! :)  Then it's was already 8:30pm, so we decided to just ask for a sleepover!  I mean why not?! ;)  We got a yes so we stopped by my house, got my stuff and then headed back to Kayleen's to watch Pitch Perfect.  By the time we watched the movie and it was over it was already midnight!  So we went to bed to wake up at 7:30am because Kayleen had a piano thing at 9am.  So i've been a little tired today but had a great time last night! :)
Today has been a pretty laid back day.  I got home at 8:30am and hung out till 11:30 when I went with my mom to Dollar General, Arbys and the grocery store.  Got home around 1:30pm, and cleaned my room.  I actually made my bed and vacuumed. :)
Nothing planned for the rest of the evening.  Probably will read my book, work on some blog posts, shower, relax and go to bed early! :)  Tomorrow morning I am teaching my 3 year old Sunday School class myself with the help of the two helpers.  Wish me luck!!

A Look Back: Sophomore Year

I really enjoyed the Freshman year post so I thought I would do a Sophomore year post too! :)

Sophomore year is definitely not like Freshman year!  You start to get the hang of High School and just to get more involved! :)
A quote about Sophomore Year....."Three years ago we stepped into high school believing that we owned the place. No longer the lowly freshman, we had a new attitude. Still individuals searching for themselves, looking to fit in, wanting to achieve something. We followed our daily routines, got our licenses, expanded our circle of friends, and talked about parties. Three years ago we made a new best friend, went out with our friends every weekend, thought we were too mature for school dances. Three years ago we couldn't wait to get older."
My advice for the Sophomore year:
  • Don't slack on school work, it probably one of the hardest years in school.
  • Spend as much time with friends and make memories!!
  • Continue to enjoy high school and don't care about what anyone thinks of you!!!

A Look Back: Freshman Year

In August of 2009 I stepped into the High School doors as a Freshman.  So many feelings were part of Freshman year.  This post I'm going to be looking back and giving advice to future Freshman. :)

Freshman year is full of firsts....first day of school, first high school sporting events, first homecoming.

A quote about Freshman Year....."Four years ago we stepped into high school … individuals seeking to do well, to find our identity, to find our best friend. We opened our lockers for the first time, looked at our schedules, thought about how great it was to finally be in high school. Four years ago we met our best friend, got our rings, we went to our first school dance, had a crush on a cute senior. Four years ago, we couldn't wait to get older"  
Freshman year you have to figure out a lot....figure out the clicks, figure out who are really your friends, figure out how High School works.

My advice for Freshman is:
  • Don't try to fit in, it won't do you any good.  Be who you are and be with those you love you for who you are!!
  • But your school work first and try your hardest at getting good grades.  High school is a lot different then Middle school!
  • Enjoy the most of your Freshman year!  It will be over before you know it!  Even though I know you can't wait to not be a stupid freshman :)

Dear Future Husband

I heard about this idea forever ago and I think it will be something awesome to look back on many many years from now!

Dear Future Husband,

It is absolutely crazy to think you are out in this world and I may or may not know you.  I love knowing that the love of my life is out there somewhere.  When I marry the man of my dreams, I want to be married to him for the rest of my life!  I want to be one of the couples who have been married for fifty plus years and people think, wow they are still together and maddily in love after all these years?!  I want to be madly in love.  I want to never be able to stay mad at you because you make me laugh or smile.  I want to show our children what love is.  I want to always make up before we go to bed and never go to bed mad at each other.  I want for us to spend time just us.  I know that are marriage won't be perfect but I want us to have passion and love for each other that is so strong, nothing can break it.  In the end I want us to be happy.

I can not wait for the day that I am happily married with four beautiful children. (We can debate this one)  

Your Future Wife.

No Time

Gah!!!  I feel like I have been so busy this week!  This week has been a hard week on me..  I just feel worn out!  It's take some getting use to these new classes with new faces and just the whole new routine in general.  So i'm sorry for being so absent this week.  Not only been busy but  had some writers block.  Work has been crazy lately and i'm just worn out.  By the time I get home, I eat, take my medicine, shower and try to relax by talking/texting people and trying to keep up on all my shows that chose this week to start!!

What Goes Into My Outfit Choices

This idea of a blog post came into my mind and I thought it would be fun to do and goes into and kinda explains the outifts in What I Wore Wednesday's.


 What I wear on the weekdays kinda just depends how I feel when I wake up.  When i'm tired I am more likely to just wear jeans, my work t-shirt and sweatshirt/jacket.  Lately, I'll add a scarf with this outfit too.
If I'm tired but still nice then i'll do a long sleeve shirt (in winter) and pair it with Jeans and either a scarf or long necklace.

Some days when I'm tired I force myself to look nice and some day's I force myself to dress up.  This outfits above are pretty typical looking nice outftits.  A lot of time I try to wear my hair in a braid or down when I dress up.

Typically on weekends I will just wear yoga pants, tshirt and a fleece jacket/sweatshirt.  I most of the times aren't doing much or going out so I wear my comfy clothes on those days.

So now you have a little insight on why I wear what I do :)

This Is Where I Belong

This is where I belong from The Lion King for something to listen to while you read this post.

After today, I have never been more sure that I want to work with Kindergartners or that I love my job and it was meant for me and happened for a reason.

Since August, I have only not worked in my room 3 times.  In August once I worked in the 3/4yr old room, a few weeks ago I was in the toddler room and today I was in the 3/4 yr old room.  Granted I only worked in these rooms from 3:30 to 5, but each time I couldn't be happier to get back into my room.

And today, each time I saw my kids they would go running towards me.  One of the little girls told me they missed me so much (didn't see them during break) and it melted my heart.  I love these kids so much and they make my day daily just by seeing them.

I know that working with kids is my calling! <3

Random Picture Post

I have some random pictures on my mind that I haven't posted so, thought I might as just post them today since I don't have much to say today!  Back to a day of school followed by work, I have a feeling it will be a long day!
 This picture is from Saturday, a day when I was actually feeling good!  I haven't dressed that nice since then ;)
 One of Sam's Christmas gift was this huge 6 foot long Train that he can color :)
Kayleen decorated this picture frame and gave it to me for Christmas!  I put one of our professional friend pictures inside of it :)
All the presents that I gave wrapped. :)   Which I still have 3 or 4 gifts for people at school since we didn't have school the Thursday or Friday before break because of snow days!

Happy Thursday! :)
