{one} Well, I have finally finished school! What a relief! I passed student teaching and graduated last Saturday. Now, time to job hunt in full force. There are several jobs open in the county I want to work in. I have applied for all of them. What I would really like is to be hired at the school where I student taught...a position just opened up and I will interview soon! I am praying that this is where God wants me because I really want to be there, but I do know that it might not be where God wants me.

{two} I cleaned out our disaster of an office yesterday and boy does it look good. I threw out a bunch of stuff that had been collecting dust and also put a lot in the basement. Does anyone else feel great when they clean? Or am I a weirdo for feeling that way?

These are recent pictures, isn't the wall color gross!

{three} I don't know what I am going to do this summer when I have nothing to do. This is going to be my first summer off since high about 6 years! I will probably finish painting the walls and trim in our house. I want to make a quilt too. I have done the "easy" version where you put two pieces of fabric together with batting in the middle. I say "easy" because it wasn't that easy. Now, I want to try one where you have to cut out the squares and sew it all together. I have a tutorial pinned on my Pinterest site (under DIY). I'm thinking the first time I will buy pre-cut squares...I know, I know. But, if I'm going to actually finish it, it can't be too hard!


{four} My Mamaw turned 70 on the 17th. She definitely doesn't look or act 70! She was a elementary teacher (one of the reasons a became a teacher) and it's neat to share my experiences with her. It's not that we didn't have anything to talk about before, but now she is able to give me a TON of advice and useful tips.

{five} My husbands birthday is tomorrow and I can't decide what to get him! It's not that he's hard to buy for but there's nothing he really wants. I do know I'm going to make him this delicious angel food cake with cool whip mixed with heath bar icing. It's soooo good! I'll have to post how to make it later in the week, it's pretty self-explanatory! We did go to our favorite, local Mexican restaurant for lunch today. Our sister-in-law really wanted them to bring out the hat =]

Happy Birthday babe! I love you!

That's all for now.
