Makeup Roll up Bag

Friday night, Amanda and I decided to get crafty and make Makeup Roll up bags. I found the idea on this idea site which lead me to this site
We had a lot of fun making these bags. After we finished, Amanda made a brush roll up bag using the same ideas. It's rather awesome.

Fun with B and L

I have been babysitting B and L for a little over a year and a half now and I have enjoyed watching them grow so much! I will really miss them when I start student teaching because I won't get to see them as much. Here are some pictures of our happenings this summer:

The girls being silly

This is the fort I built for the girls to play in! They absolutly LOVE it!!

Kelley's Wedding!

My dear friend Kelley married her high school sweetheart, Ryan, on June 26th. It was a beautiful wedding and they are SO in love with each other. I spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday with Kelley helping her get ready for the BIG day and we had a great time.

Jennifer caught the bride's boquet!!!

Thanks for letting me be part of you special day, Kelley! You are such a beautiful person!

Trip to the Zoo with my Nephew

Shortly after my nephew Q was born I went to Garland to visit my brother and SIL to meet him. The next day I was leaving town but I wanted to spend time with my other nephew R. My mom and I took R to the Dallas Zoo and we had a BLAST. Here are a few pictures from our adventure:

NEEDLESS to say, we had a great time and I want to go again!

Today while browsing, i found a great site to print prompted journal pages. here is the link:

The writer of this blog created every jounal page and you can download them FOR FREE. I'm excited to start doing the journal entries. I've never been the type to keep a journal but i always thought it would be a neat thing to do so I can look back and see all i've been through and accomplished (one of the reasons i started this blog). Check it out. She also has some great crafty ideas.

also check out for some great crafty ideas too!

kids are silly!

So I babysit two girls (sisters) ages 7(B) and 4(L). Today, at McDonald's, L tried french fries and ranch dressing for the first time (I think). Now, this little girl says some really silly things you wouldn't expect a 4 year-old to say. I was expecting her to say "Yum!" or "That's good!"... instead she said "mmmm... that's tasty!" I just had to laugh. She says the silliest things and I wish I could write all of them down.

Here's another L story:
2 weeks ago the girls were at swimming lessons. L HATES swimming lessons because she doesn't want to put her face in the water or swim w/o her floaties. When we got home I asked her why she didn't like swim lessons and she said because they won't let her use her floaties. I asked her what she is going to do when she's my age and she just said "well... I'm just gonna have to deal with it." It cracked me up to hear her say that!

Welcome to Blog-World!!

So I decided to start a blog to document my experience student teaching. I start student teaching on August 23 but I have to go to meetings and in-service starting Aug. 13. I am really looking forward to student teaching and FINALLY graduating December 18!! I will also be blogging about my experience planning my wedding. I'm engaged to my WONDERFUL man, craig. I love him so much! (ok enough with the mushy stuff. lol). After student teaching I'll probably blog about life after graduation and what-not and then on to MARRIAGE!! I love being crafty so feel free to post fun ideas and I will do the same! I am also starting to get in to canning veggies so if you have any tips, let me know!

I'll be posting more once school starts and give y'all a glimpse in to my CRAZY world of student teaching/wedding planning/graduation/marriage/and the quirks in between!
