a weekend in pictures

I really want eggy in a basket. like more than vegitables or chocolate or a basil roma from common grounds.. V for Vendetta ALWAYS makes me long for eggy in a a bad way...

maybe i'll go home at lunch and make it..

but probably not :P

This weekend we weent antique shopping. it was really fun and oddly relaxing :) I can't wait to finish decorating the apartment :) we're going to make it really clean and creative and personal..I'm really looking forward to it and to see what we come up with!

life is good. love is great. may is BUSY!
i get my hairs cut this week
star trek next week- and mothers day!!
graduation, shower, and a musical the next week
skip a week..
shower,bike ride, ball game, and singing the next week..
plus all the rest of the wedding planning in between!
*sigh* im exhausted..

its all worth I'm going to see this 70 year old man sing and shake it on stage in a couple of weeks

-you have tremendous faith

-your dont listen to silly music

Don't sweat the small stuff!

This morning I woke up at a reasonable time ( not too hair is still a little wet)

I got to work on time - there was a cookie on my desk- aand I turned on the tv and guess what was on ...Sabrina!!!

Today is a beautiful day full lots of small happy things

Count That Day Lost

If you sit down at set of sun

And count the acts that you have done,

And, counting, find

One self-denying deed, one word

That eased the heart of him who heard,

One glance most kindThat fell like sunshine where it went --

Then you may count that day well spent.

But if, through all the livelong day,

You've cheered no heart, by yea or nay --

If, through it all

You've nothing done that you can trace

That brought the sunshine to one face--

No act most smallThat helped some soul and nothing cost --

Then count that day as worse than lost.

George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans)

Well folks, its monday!

Ok..I have a confession to make a "people-watcher"

I know! I can't help it though. I constantly catch myself watching other people..and embarassingly enough..when I dont catch myself, Elliot kindly points it out with a gentle( stop staring!) I don't mean to be rude! Its fascinating to watch another person..see how they react to things and to watch their different mannerisms. I try to think about how they might be feeling..what they might be thinking..which is honestly a little overwhelming.

Think about it...think about all the thoughts going through your head in a single minute..especially if you're anything like me. It's like a mad house up there sometime! and its easy to get caught up in whats going on in your own head, but to put yourself in someone elses think about their situations, their may be equally as maddening!

none of that made any sense. I know. Sorry.

my new obsession is reading blogs. Thats like..a free ticket to whats going on with other people. next time you read a blog..a newspaper or magazine article..try thinking about ..what that person might have been thinking as they wrote that..its a good perspective exercise and a good way to empathize with someone.

blah blah blah. rambling is fun

In other news..I have exactly 2 months we do the whole..marriage thing;) life is so crazy seriously moves so fast i can't keep up! I'm learing to go with it though and with the help of my fiance..I'm learning to not take things so seriously..and just..let it fall into place...change is happens..its not always bad( its usually good!!!) and as long as I keep trying to let go and let God handle things..everything will be awesome. (!!)

and i would just like to say..movies like "my fake fiance" make me sick. Lets promote the idea that getting married for stuff and then getting a divorce is TOTALLY OK!! seriously? How is that ok? I mean..I'm sure they end up falling in love and living happily ever after. not the point. Highly unlikely. very silly. a little insulting.

Coorporate Adventures

Just kidding. There is nothing adventurous about it ;)

last night and today I found myself humming and singing the "sit down, stand up" song. not familiar with the tune? hmm..thats odd.. I thought everyone knew it. Oh wait my bad..every child in rogers (grades k-5) knows this song. yes..thats right, I have an elementary music song stuck in my head..and the sad thing is its not really that bad. To be honest, I miss watching the children get all excited when this song starts to play..all of them laughing and jumping up and down...*sigh* I miss my Tillery days. Sure I came home exhausted most days. Sure I got sick every few weeks. Sure some of the adoreable little children frustrated me to no end. But I miss it. It was challenging, it was interseting, and it was a good use of my time.

SO . maybe teaching wouldn't be that bad. We'll see

Another song stuck my head has been " guy love" if you dont know it..look it up on youtube.

I recently discovered my ideal webpage..
