Two weeks later......

and I have finished New Moon and am embarking on Eclipse. I am going to be really sad when I finish the books because I have been living and breathing these books for over a month now. I took it to work last night and got a lot of it read because we were so dead at the store. Here's to 2 more weeks till book #3 is finished.

This is the life!

Today was my first day @ Lakewood Creek Elementary. I left my house @ 7:45 to start the day @ 8. In case you didn't catch that, I left myself less than 15 minutes to get to work this morning. I absolutley LOVE the fact that I have 2 jobs so close to home. I filled up my gas tank more than a week ago and it just dipped a little below full.

I worked at the teacher store tonight too, got off @8 and was in my drive way by 8:02. I LOVE IT!!!!!!

This really doea make up for all those years of having to drive 30+ minutes to work all the time!

Elder Steven E. Snow

Today, we had the opportunity to meet a member of the Presidency of the Seventy at our Stake Conference. We were able to get their early enough to get the first row seat. It started at 10 and by 9 the chapel and overflow were almost full. It was a very nice meeting with some very wonderful talks. Afterwards, Jenny and I were sitting there chatting and Elder Snow came over and said hello and shook out hands. What a blessing it is that we can have the opportunity to have him at one of our meetings and such a privelege to hear from him.

New discovery

So there are perks to having a good friend work for Sephora. 2 weeks ago I went to go visit this friend and work and have some fun getting a make over and suggestions on what to do with my face that seems to think it is still a teenager (translation- acne that won't go away) I have tried many different products, Proactiv to name one and it didn't help. So she recommended this DDF acne treatment. I have been using it ever since and have noticed some major differences. So if you have the same problem I do give it a try the started box is only $30 and you can get it at Sephora or from So now I can get on with my life, without that annoying acne! haha that sounds like it belongs on a commercial.

I can see clearly now... I know what I'm doing this fall!

In the span of a weekend, I got not 1 but 2 jobs! I went into the teacher store just about a minute from our house yesturday to fill out an app. for part time work and got hired on the spot! Then I get a call yesturday from the Asst.Principal at Lakewood Creek where I interviewed back in May. He asked me to come in for an interview for a TA spot today. Went in today, got a calls this afternoon with an offer, and the rest is history. The best part is that I get to work with 2 great friends, Jenny Main & Cyndi Blotter. The 2 also happen to be members of the church.
So we have alot of influence in that school now!
The experience that I have had over the last few days has really strengthened my testimony of prayer and faith. The Lord won't leave you hanging, he just waits for the right moment to make it all the worth while! So here's to a great 2008-09 school year!

P.S Jenny and I laid in the sun today reading B.D & New Moon. I am happy to say that I got 115 pages read and am still going strong. I am at the part where Edward left and I started to cry..

1 down, 3 to go.

Less than one week and I finished Twilight last night and have already started on New Moon. Stephanie Meyer did a great job at keeping the reader in suspense- I couldn't put that book down all weekend long. I am sure New Moon will be done in a week. I can't wait to see what happens next. I also can't wait for the movie to come out. I have to say though that they didn't do a good job at casting a good looking Edward, atleast from the pictures that I see and the way he is described in the book.

The Quote to my life right now

There are a gazillion things going on in my life right now and maybe I will have time to blog them later but I talked with a friend and she let me vent and talked to me about it and she said this quote which totally hits home on my life right now.

"We can't control the winds but we can adjust our sails."

Thanks Jen :)

I'm Hooked

So I have been told by a lot of people that I HAVE
to read this series. It has taken me a long time to
get into Twilight, I had to have one of the girls
read it to me at camp because I just couldn't
get into it. Well I am in chapter 7 now and I don't
want to put it down! I must say Stephanie did a great job at luring the reader in and then putting out bits of information and action that makes the reader want to keep reading.
So yesturday I went out and bought the other 3 books, just incase they sell out, I want to be able to keep reading about Bella and Edward!

I almost fell over last night when I realized that in 3 months I will be 24. Last year when someone asked me how old I was I just said 23 without evening thinking or realizing the number but 24 just sticks out as an "oh my" number. Almost a century old. As I look back and reflect on my life, there were a few things I wanted to accomplish by this "scary" age that I am slagging behind on. I wanted to be secure in my profession and be working on having my second child by now. It looks like neither are going to happen and I am o.k with that. God laughs when we make plans, right? I am sure in 6 years I will look back on this post and laugh because the ripe 'ole age of 30 will be much scarier than a meesly 24. Hopefully by then I will have achieved some of my life goals. Here are a few:
  • Have a teaching job
  • Visit the Bahamas, Hawaii, Ireland and Paris
  • Start a family
  • Get my Master's Degree
  • Become financially secure (we're getting there)
  • Buy a big house with a huge yard

I think this is a good start to the next six years of my life.
