Happy Birthday to my King!!

There is this quote that I have always liked that says, "Someday my prince will come, but my Dad will always be my King." I know it's a little corny but it always makes me smile because of how true it is! He has always been my number one man. He has always been on the top! God gave me the best Father in the world. I love him so much. I know that I could not put into words all that my Dad means to me. I'm so lucky! He has taught me so much in the 22 years I have lived in his house. He has shown me how to be a REAL friend (even when it is taken for granted), how to love, even when love is not returned. He has a love for God and a burden for souls that is incredible. He gives his whole heart to the church and the ministries he is involved in. He knows how to laugh at himself. He has real joy and shows it all the time! But he is also very serious and dedicated when he needs to be. He is faithful and consistent in every aspect of life. I love that I can talk to him about anything. He is my Father but he is also one of my closest friends. I respect him more than any man in the world. He has proven himself over and over. He has always been there whether it was just to talk, or get on me about something, or give me a hug after a long day, or tease me about my 'moments', laugh with, walk with, pray with, or even to just give a good back rub. :) So, even though I have found my prince I can honestly say that my Dad truly.....in all areas of life...at least in my eyes.....is my KING!

Happy 51st Birthday Daddy!!

I love you!!

When it's all worth it...

This is Maxine...I was able to catch this adorable moment with her one day in the Infant room at the daycare where I work. This video makes me laugh so hard. Moments like this make the hundreds of stinky diapers, the dried spit up on your outfit at the end of the day, the drool, the biting, screaming, pinching etc... all worth it. I love my job!! I'm going to miss these kids so much! And isn't she just so CUTE..her crazy hair and all :) By the way, you might wonder what she is laughing at... all I was doing was bouncing a ball off the wall..haha..it really made her day though!

Hello Blog World!!! Once again I have neglected you. Most of you that read my blog know me in real life so you know that I do have GREAT excuses for not posting for the last two months! :) Those of you that only read my blog, have probably lost faith in my blogging abilities but I hope to win that back over time! :) A lot has been going on in my little world!


Here are some pictures of things that have kept me occupied!


These are the sixth graders that I had the pleasure of student teaching from January to May. I absolutely loved them to pieces! I think I learned as much from them as they learned from me! :) I also taught a 9th and 10th Geography class, which was a very challenging experience for me but I can say that I am glad I went through it!


Being crazy!


After the long but great semester I finally graduated!!! Along with the most handsome man in the world! It was so great to be able to share that special day!!



My parents, little brother and I



Just me

My future in-laws got to come for it!! The day before was Julian's little sister's 16th birthday so we had fun celebrating that together!!

HANDSOME!!!


Nicole, Tab and I!!

On top of all that, I have been slowly but surely crossing off many things on my wedding to-do list! It has been a little stressful at some points but we are getting close to the finish line!!
Invitations! My hand still hurts just thinking about those...wow...


Ring shopping! These are my rings together...this was before they took the ridges off the edge of the band so that it matches my engagement ring.

Cake tasting! YUM!!



These along with dresses, shoes, silk flowers, real flowers, tux's, ties, ribbon, jewelry and the list goes on and on! I have had so much fun with all the planning but I am very ready for the big day!! I DO plan on keeping up with this blog on a much more regular basis from now on!!
