This and that

Bullet style

  • This has been such a busy month. I've had lots of projects and they have challenged me (that's always a good thing).

  • Spring is here, I think? Weather in TN. has been crazy. One day this past week it was in the high 70's and the next day it snowed! : )

  • I'm doing Weight Watchers and as of yesterday am down 7 pounds! Can I get a woot woot?

  • I got a new position at my school and couldn't be more excited!!! I get to do what I've always dreamed of and I am THRILLED!

  • I am off to a fun little jaunt to KY to meet some of my fav. blogger buddies! Pics to follow :)

  • I'm not able to go to the photography workshop that I have already had to miss once before :( I have to train at school that week. I am sad to miss the experience to learn more about photography from the Pixel Fairy! :( I am also SUPER bummed not to be meeting some girls that I just adore. However, since I am missing this trip, my mom surprised me and said that we will just take our summer vacay there! So, i'll be there in a couple of months! YAY!

  • We are going to see Cirque De Soleil on this Good Friday and we are so excited.

  • I miss my dad. Easter was always a time spent with my family. It's just another reminder that he isn't with us anymore and it remains to break my heart. I don't know when the pain will dull, but I am praying that God can comfort me, as I struggle to understand why he is gone. I am excited to see him in Heaven! I miss his laugh and him calling out to me, "Have a good day, sis". I miss you daddy!

  • I hope you all have a blessed Easter!!! Enjoy your family. Hold them close and tell them every chance you get, how much you love them. Family is what it is ALL about!

Thank you God for all you have done for us!

Wow..I've got so much to comment on I hope I don't leave anything out. A big woot woot on the weight loss and new job. I'm totally stoked about next week and I just want to give you a big hug (I can see why you miss your daddy). I'm hoping to make it to a workshop myself. Have a blessed family...and yes, family is what it's all about.

Holidays do tend to bring on more sadness, don't they? I wish I could be there to give you a big hug. And a trip to KY?!? Are you visiting my KY friends? Must hear more!!

Your right, family is what it is all about. Finally catching up with the blogs. I am so disappointed that I will not see you in Philly. But, I am so excited for you. Congrats on your new position.

You good girl with the weight loss. I am trying so hard to lose weight. It is a struggle. I love food!

Do you know when you are coming to Pa?


Heather said...

WHAT? You are not coming???? Wahhh. I was sooo looking forward to seeing you...okay does that mean the summer trip is in our neck of the woods? Do tell, girlfriend.

Now that I have vented my selfish rant, let's get to the real deal...Congratulations!! New job, lost weight, awesome girlie! You are such a special lady...rootin' for you here in PA:)
