I wrote this in my writer's notebook on February 1, 2011...
I want a moment like that... A defining, happy moment in my life. It obviously doesn't need to be as great as Lucas Scott telling me he loves me. But one defining, life changing-for the good-moment would be great right about now.

This completely applies to my life right now. Give me one of these moments! <3

The music I love changes alllllll the time, but I want to make sure I don't forget about the songs I love through the different times in my life. Right now these are my favorites:

  • The Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga
  • The Funeral by Band of Horses
  • So Here We Are by Bloc Party
  • Set Fire to the Rain by ADELE
  • Always by Blink-182
  • Thunder by Boys Like Girls
  • Count on Me by Bruno Mars
  • Deuces by Chris Brown
  • Fly by Nicki Minaj
  • Every Teardrop is a Waterfall by Coldplay
  • We Found Love by Rihanna
Lots of variety, but I looove it all!

best text ever

"Some days are for living. Others are for getting through. Look at things not as they are, but what they can be. If you want the rainbow, you must put up with the rain. Celebrate the wonderful and great days that you have and the occasional bad days will reduce. May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past."

Thanks for the reminder Chelsea! Love you, babe!

i'm surviving

only because of my amazing friends.

"A good friend is a connection to life, a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world."
-Lois Wyse

"Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words."
-George Elliot

"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares."
-Henri Nouwen

"Friends broaden our horizons. They serve as new models with whom we can identify. They allow us to be ourselves--and accept us that way. They enhance our self-esteem because they think we're okay, because we matter to them. And because they matter to us-for various reasons, at various levels of intensity-they enrich the quality of our emotional life."
-Judith Viorst

once again...

I am going to share how amazing my weekend was. OH and how even more amazing Thomas and Lauren are. This is getting out of control I'm aware.... Lets just say friday was one of the greatest days ever. definitely the greatest day since the summer <3 . It consisted of Morelia's, pumpkin carving, Hires, long talks, Horrible Bosses, and Thomas falling asleep and snoring (cutest thing ever)! Oh and this is happening Thursday, Friday, and Monday cause it's Halloween folks! :)

be my husband

Sam Jaeger, or Joel, on Parenthood is the perfect husband and father! He sticks up for his wife and family to their kinda crazy dad... He lets his daughter paint his finger nails - so cute! He is just the perfect husband, the dream husband.

classroom stuff

so much fun!
love love love love love love LOVE this idea!


Thanks for the tips Lynds!

class sucks. i want to teach.

Oh man! Okay... Sooooooo pretty much school is the worst thing everrr and has made me seriously NOT want to do my student teaching, BUT I just went and met with my cooperating teaching at Willow Springs Elementary and now... I CAN'T WAIT! I think it helps that I am going into a 5th grade class! Annnnnnnnd my teacher is amazing! She is just so fun and she and her team have SO many amazing ideas! I am so excited to just work with them and get some new ideas and ways to teach. I hope I can bring some new ideas to the table too. I start my fall field on November 2nd and I'm there for 3 weeks, then I am going back on January 9th for 11 weeks! :) EEEEEK! I am so excited for 5th grade cause the curriculum is SO MUCH FUN! We will be doing Colonial Days and the Revolutionary War while I'm there in November! So excited! Anyway, it was just really nice to go into the class and just meet her and see some of the students. Reminds me why I am actually sitting through torture everyday. It's especially nice when I know what Mrs. Wright was talking about when she said they use Words Their Way, Basal books, and other Literacy terms! :) Basically I am just wayyyyy excited! OH! And a huge plus is the program they use for math... Envision Math! It's going to make teaching math SO much easier! :) I love it! Yay for teaching!!!

The Vampire Diaries Season 2!

number four

My brother, Brady, and his wife, Ash, just found out that they are having a baby girl!!!!! I am so excited! It's gonna be a whole lot of girls and whole lot of drama! She is supposed to be coming in March, but due to Ashley's serious problems with premature babies I am going to say she'll be here in January. Cross your fingers for February! I seriously don't mind having another one of these to babysit...
