My Man

He's my best friend.

He makes me laugh.

He believes in me and makes me believe in myself.

He's the smartest person I know.

He loves God.

He loves his family.

He makes me feel safe.

He makes being his wife the easiest, best job in the world.

"I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine" Song of Solomon 6:3

Tuesday Tunes: Hold Me

I am a huge Toby Mac fan!! HUGE!! The husband and I had the opportunity to see him in concert last year. Best concert I've ever been to. Hands down!!

He helps out Jamie Grace in her new song "Hold Me". He periodically helps new artist get started in the business. How nice is that!

I wasn't real crazy about this song at first, but it has quickly grown on me and is now becoming one of my favorites. It's catchy. Let me know what you think.

Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

**Friday, I learned that my BFF and her husband are expecting their first baby! I am super excited for them. This baby will be like a niece/nephew to me. Can't wait to meet and cuddle.

That makes two babies coming this spring. God is good!!

**My brother was wrestling in Blytheville Friday night. The husband and I headed up there when I got home from school. I was glad we were able to go see him. It was a good match. Unfortunately he lost.

**After wrestling we spent the night with the husband's parents. It was nice to spend some time with them. We were also able to spend some time with Cary, Sara, Jackson, & Millie.

**This morning I ran through a drive thru to pick up breakfast. It was one with two windows. You know...where you pay at the first window and pick up your food at the second window. This morning before I had even finished paying at the first window, my food was hanging out the second window. There was this hand holding my food out the window. Does this bother anyone else? I think it is so rude. I know it's supposed to be fast food, but it seems like they can't get rid of you fast enough when they do this. It is one of my biggest pet peeves.

** This afternoon I took the trash out. I came back in and started unloading the dishwasher. Liberty walked over by the front door and started barking. It was her "something is here that shouldn't be" bark. I thought maybe I didn't shut the door all the way and she saw people outside. I walked over there only to find a snake IN MY HOUSE!!

I am deathly afraid of snakes. I immediately started crying and saying I couldn't get it out. But I couldn't leave it in my house either. Our broom was in the garage and I couldn't very well go out there. I grabbed one of Andrew's golf clubs to shoo it out. I was crying and praying the whole time. then I called the husband freaking out. He of course acts like I'm overreacting. Ummmm....there is a SNAKE IN MY HOUSE!! I got it out, but I can't shake the creepy feeling now. Lib saved my life.

First Day of School

It's official. School is back in session. I have been looking forward to this for quite some time. I have such high hopes for this year. I feel like I'm ready to help this group of 7th graders grow and succeed academically.

Today did not disappoint. I had a great first day. I've got some rowdy boys, but that's not something that can't be solved.

Though I look forward to the first day every year, I'm glad to have it out of the way. One. It is exhausting. Two. I'm ready to get down to good stuff. Let the real teaching begin.

I'm so excited about this year and a few things I've decided to do differently.

I normally take a picture on the first day of school. I can't believe I didn't today. It just didn't happen this morning and then the day was over and I was in my pajamas before I knew it. I'm an exhausted girl!

I struggled with the outfit this year. I normally have it planned weeks in advance. Not this year. I tried on several outfits last night, but nothing was speaking to me. This husband wasn't being real opinionated about it either. I finally settled on a pair of brown capris, a purple shirt, and a white cardigan.

I will be going to bed very soon, but I had a great first day and am ready tomorrow.

We Are Having A.....

new niece or nephew!!!!

Ha! Bet you thought I was going to say baby didn't you!?!

I can't believe I haven't blogged about it yet. We are thrilled.'s Jill by the way. :) Amelia is going to be a big sister. They are due in March. If you want all the details go check out her blog.

I have just been in awe of God since I got the news. I mean it took them FOREVER it seemed to get pregnant with Miss Amelia. And they got pregnant with Baby #2 with no outside help and in less than a month. How can you not be in awe of God? He is so AWESOME!!

This sweet precious baby will make #13 for the nieces and nephews. I love each and every one of them. I love being an aunt. They have been such a blessing. They have also served as some really good birth control at times. :) HA!!

Some day Andrew and I will add to this group of sweet kiddos, but until then we enjoy loving on all our babies and the big kids too.
