Well, today is Thursday which means only one thing... Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice come on! OH MY I just cannot wait! by my clock, I have about an hour before they come on so I will start to work on my school work and of course, do this!

Tonight, we had the most wonderful meal. I just wish I could tell you where I found it! Yes, it was a blog but I am not sure whose blog it was. When I find out I will let you know. We had, Chicken Parmesan Wraps. So... so... good!

This is what our wraps looked like:

Egg roll wraps, baby spinach, chicken, marinara sauce, Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. 

We had rice to go along with it but of course it wasn't ready when I decided to take the picture.   

This weekend I get to sit at home and study for my two Praxis test that I have in a couple of weeks.  I am thinking it was not the best decision I have ever made to have them both in one week but, I just really wanted to get it over with! If I could get the certification stress off of my shoulders I would think I would feel so much better! 

School is desperately calling my name.  I have to do lesson plans and finish my Classroom Management Plan so unless you all would like to help me I will have to go finish up! :( 

I am pretty sure I was going to talk about me learning to sew but I haven't uploaded my pictures yet so maybe tomorrow or this weekend I will do that! I need to get it together! 

I am going to find the person who listed this recipe and will give them the credit they deserve! I will edit soon!

Birthday Celebration!!

Since yesterday was officially my birthday we decided to do a little something since we had really already celebrated my birthday the previous weekend and Monday night.

Yesterday afternoon, the husband and I met in the park and shared cupcakes from my favorite place... Cupcake and Co. I have talked about them before but, if you are near me or if you plan on visiting my area you should definitely check them out!!

Here is the link to their facebook page!

After we shared our cupcakes, we decided to go on the Haunted History of the Shoals Ghost Tour. The tour is given by Debra Johnston Glass and is so much fun! Since we are new to the area it was very interesting for us to learn about the history of our new town. I do have to say that I am extremely excited about exploring these places downtown soon!

To learn more about the Haunted History of the Shoals.... go here!!!

If any of you are interested in ghost and would like to see pictures of the ghost here in The Shoals, you can go to their wordpress site. Click HERE to go to their wordpress site.

I only have a couple of pictures of our afternoon in the park. I decided not to take pictures on the tour although I probably should have. Here are our pictures!

Cupcakes in the park! We had: White Chocolate, Red Velvet, German Chocolate, and Chocolate with Cream Cheese! Yum!!

Seriously... how cute are we in the park??

I absolutely love the fountain in Wilson Park!

This has to be my favorite entrance into the park. So beautiful!

This is our last picture before the tour began. How fun! Of course, we only took this picture to see how our new phones worked in the dark! Such dorks!

I hope you all enjoyed the things I shared from my birthday! We did buy two books from the author who gave the ghost tour! I will let you all know how the books are after I finish them! Hopefully before Halloween!!

Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Well, obviously by the title it is my birthday but there are so many other things that I need to cover! I think we can all tell that I have been away for a while and believe me, there is very good reasoning behind this.

1.) In a couple of weeks I will be taking my Praxis exams for Mississippi and Alabama. Obviously the two states need to get together and have the same testing requirements but, of course that would be too easy and a lot cheaper for us poor college students. I am sure, the point of this was to make us spend all of our money and force us into a profession. Regardless, these things have to be done and this is where I am in my life.

2.) School is taking over my life. Besides the papers that I am having to write, working in my groups, observing in the classroom, and actually participating in class, I am still expected to clean house and take care of myself and my husband. It is a lot of work sometimes but I am learning to deal with it.

3.) My mom gave me a sewing machine for my birthday so she came and spent the weekend with me and taught me how to sew. I will talk about that in another post. Yes, I do have pictures and I am excited to show what I learned to do.

4.) Oh, did I mention I have been sick? I have been living off of oatmeal, soup, and sprite for the past month. I just started eating normal meals last week. I lost twenty pounds over the past month so now I plan on getting myself in really good shape. :) That is the plan... we will see how that goes!

5.) Since I am up here away from everyone I know I have had my share of company lately. I have been so excited that my friends and family have come to see me! The spare time that I did have to write I have filled with people that I love!

Although saying that here is my plan...

I plan on trying to write back on my blog again. It is a new year in my life and I have a lot of stuff that I need to get out. Have you ever been so busy that you just didn't know what to do with yourself?? Well, I have gotten myself organized with a wonderful planner that I have and hopefully will find myself so free time to do things that I love to do... like this. Yes, believe it or not I love talking about myself!!

I hope you all enjoy and the next time we meet, maybe there will be a little more color to the page!
