Random Dozen

1. How do you feel about the marshmallow Easter Peeps? I can't remember ever actually trying them but nothing about them appeal to me

2. Chickens are notoriously nervous creatures. When you are nervous, what is the best way to calm down? Sleep

3. People say, "April showers bring May flowers." Do you enjoy Spring rains? No not really but it's better that winter rain.

4. When I was randomly flipping through TV channels this week, I saw a show in which tattoo parlor employees received tattoos of a co-worker's face on their bodies. I can't imagine having a portrait of a colleague tattooed on me. But if someone forced you to receive a portrait tattoo (face only) of anyone, who would it be? Why? If I was being forced it would be Hannah's face. She is so pretty!

7. Cadbury Eggs or Reese Eggs? Never had either but I would choose Reese

9. What book are you reading now, or what was the last one? I'm not reading one and I really can't remember the last one I did read.

10. What do you think is the most difficult task when it comes to Spring cleaning? I've never actually "Spring cleaned" before so I don't know

11. How many pairs of flip-flops do you own? Not really sure because I have gotten rid of a lot...I can think of about 2-3 pairs right now

All Things New

It has been a long time since I have actually blogged about what is going on with my family. Tons of stuff has changed in the past few months. Great things!

Jason and I both have new jobs that I am so proud of! Jason found a job at an appliance place that is 3 minutes down the road. I can't wait till he has been there for a while because I know he will be an awesome salesman! He sure can talk!

My best friend is an RN at the NICU and one of the receptionists was leaving and THANKFULLY she thought of me when they asked about people that would be interested. Thanks to her I got an interview! I interviewed on a Tuesday and was offered the job on Thursday! I was beyond excited! I really couldn't believe they called me that fast! It is part time(2 days a week) and is a 12 hour night shift. I'm so excited about this new adventure I'm about to set out on. I have never worked like that in my life! I can't believe I found the place I will probably be working at for many, many years!

Hannah is just great! She will be 18 months old tomorrow and I can't belive it is almost time to start planning her 2nd birthday party! I already have tons of ideas floating around in my head. She is such a big girl now...definitely not a baby anymore (even though I still call her my Sweet Baby). She is starting to talk and recognize things. She knows every animal I can of a sound for. (cat, dog, duck, fish, monkey, elephant, lion, pig, cow) She knows Eeyore! She can point out things like birds, flowers, ball, hat, door, and book. She is just so smart and sweet!

Random Dozen

1. Have you ever fired a gun or shot a bow and arrow? Yes, I have done both.

2. Do you know where your childhood best friends are? Yes! I grew up with Justin and Jacob. I have been around them since we were in diapers. My mom babysat them and they lived across the street. I have TONS of memories with them.

3. Do you usually arrive early, late, or on time? Usually I am either a few minutes late or just right on time. I'm terrible with knowing what time to start getting ready.

4. Are you more of a New York or California type? Well I have never been to CA but I think I am a NY girl. I loved the city!

5. Do you have a special ring tone? Nothing that has any meaning. The only time I had a ringtone that had a meaning was right before and after Hannah was born I had Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely"

6. What is your favorite type of chip? crinkle cut lays

7. Best comedy you've ever seen is .... I used to love watching Who's Line Is It Anyway at night. I would laugh so hard!

8. Have you ever cut your own hair? To quote Dr. Phil, "How'd that work for ya?" I have trimmed up little stray hairs that find there way out and I have flipped my head over and cut to try and make layers. I never would cut enough to really matter though. Ha!
9. If you were going to have an extreme makeover, would you rather it be about your house or your personal self? My personal self!

10. Are you allergic to anything? Not that I know of

11. Why is it so hard to change? Humans are creatures of habit
12. One last question dedicated to February love: CS Lewis said, "To love is to be vulnerable." Please share one example of that assertion or share any thought you'd like to about this topic. Putting your heart out on the line for another person is the ultimate way of being vulnerable. Humans aren't perfect so there is always a chance of something terrible happening. Love is amazing. It can yell and fight and 10 minutes later go to bed laughing like crazy! Amazing!


My husband found a job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so proud!!!!!!!!!!!

Still Wishing and Hoping

We are still waiting on a job opportunity to present itself. It sure has been one long, HARD wait. We have had so many ups and downs in the past month and a half.....and we have only been married 4 months! Surely it can only go up from here.

I have been filling in at a daycare for a friend of mine while she doesn her field experience for school. I go three days a week and it sure has reminded me why I swore I would never work at a daycare again after my last experience. It's also weird since I'm just filling in. It's like it's not my job but it is my job. I'm not really there teacher but I am for now. It's just awkward to me. I'm sitting at my parents' house right now because I was supposed to be going in to work tomorrow BUT the daycare caught FIRE tonight! My dad called on his way home and told my mom. Later my friend called and said they were closed because of the fire. Luckily the daycare was in the middle of moving to a new location so most of their stuff is already at the new place. We will be starting at the new place Monday. I'm hoping the new place will be better for me.

I think Hannah has another ear infection. She never had anything wrong with her until a couple months ago when she got her first ear infection. I have noticed recently that she has been pulling at her ear. It's either an ear infection or her teeth. She has two new teeth coming through right now. I'm calling the doctor in the morning so hopefully we can go get her checked out.

Where is the Love?

All of my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, family, staff, doctors, nurses, police and suspects involved with today shootings at UAH.

Two shootings in two weeks?

What is going on around here?
