Still Here

What? I have a blog? Oh yeah...that's right.

It feels like a lifetime ago that I last blogged. Blogging just hasn't been a priority lately. I hope to get back into posting regularly to record our lives and to share with you some things God has been putting on my heart lately.

This post though is going to be a hodge podge of things to get caught up on the day to day things I know I'll want to remember.

1. We celebrated the husband's 31st birthday this past week. On his actual birthday I surprised him by filling our bedroom with 31 balloons. Attached to each balloon was something that I love about him. I think he was pleasantly surprised.

Last night we celebrated with his family. It was so nice that his parents and all of his siblings were able to be there. I know that meant a lot to him. Jill made some delicious desserts for the occasion. Joy Beth made lemon bars. We can't celebrate Andrew's birthday without them.

Jackson got to meet Sydney for the first time last night. Oh my goodness! He was precious. He wanted everyone there to see her and know she was there. Then he decided he wanted to hold her. As Jill went in the bedroom to get the bobby for him, he looked at his Mom and said, "I'm so excited". He was too proud to hold his new baby cousin. He and Millie are expecting a baby brother in a few months. He is very excited about that!

2. The husband and I are working on changing our lifestyles. If we are facebook friends, you know we've climbed Pinnacle Mountain 4 times in the last 2 weeks. I honestly thought I might die on that mountain the first time. Thankfully, it gets a little easier each time. We are exercising on a pretty regular basis. Andrew goes to the gym every night. I'm not quite there yet. :)

We've also changed the way we are eating. Eating healthy has been like a little adventure for me. I've learned to eat things that would have killed me a month ago. For instance, I now eat my sandwiches on wheat bread. That's HUGE for me.

3. This past weekend we finally finished up the flower bed makeover project. I don't have a before picture, but trust me it was bad. We planted some new evergreen shrubs and a tree as well as added shutters to the house. I absolutely love the way it turned out!

4. My students take benchmark test this week. It makes for a long and exhausting week for everyone involved. I'm not allowed to sit while they are testing the first 4 hours of the day. My feet are pretty tired when I get home. However, they worked so hard today and I was definitely proud of them. This is what we work all year for.

5. It is vacation time in the Weaver household. God has blessed Andrew and I with two amazing trips. He and a friend are going to the east coast to visit with a friend and explore New England. I'm definitely going to miss him this next week, but I'm thankful he has the opportunity. A few days after he gets home I'm taking a group of 7th and 8th graders to D.C. for four days. We are beyond excited!!

6. Thursday night I'm going with a dear friend to a concert entitled Girls Night Out. Mandisa, Laura Story, and Britt Nicole! The husband bought me tickets months ago. I am so excited. I can't wait to see how God works that night.

7. Do you play Draw Something? It is my new favorite game. I love it. I feel sorry for the people who play with me though because I CAN NOT DRAW! I'm sure I give them lots of good laughs.

8. I think it is about time for a give away. Don't you? Not sure what I want to give away yet, but I'll come up with something. :)
