Falling for this weather!

Finally, a nip in the air! Don't you just love it?! My heart skipped a beat when the little chill bumps arose on my arms this morning...oh Fall, how I've missed you so! I was beginning to think that Summer was never going to leave!

Things are going well on this side of the world! We are in the sixth week of school, and the kids are still behaving! I almost hate to type those words, but so far, so good!

I apologize now, but this post will be rather random....hope you stick around until the end!

I joined Weight Watchers on Saturday! I didn't really plan on doing it, but a friend call me because she did, and she encouraged me to do it with her. I've done it before, and was successful, and since I want to go down one more size (to a 10), I thought why not! I'd LOVE to hit my goal by my birthday, but I'm not putting too much pressure on myself. I know where I started, and consistency and time has played well in my favor!

So....I'm back to counting points, and I'm a little mixed up about it...I got really comfortable just watching what I ate, and now I am back to making a concerted effort to not eat bad things! Oh well right?! The weight loss will be worth it!

These last few weeks have been exhausting! I am so tired all of the time, but I'd rather be tired than bored out of my mind!

I'm sure the next post I write will have pics...did I tell you about the photo shoot I did with the wonderful Holly Anderson? Well, I guess you'll just have to come back won't you!

Calgon take me Away/ Friday Night Lights

It's Friday, and this girls needs a weekend getaway! I'm beat! I hope this doesn't come across as me complaining because I don't want to seem ungrateful, but when my alarm clock went off this morning....I seriously contemplated calling in...but 1) I'm not sick, and 2) it's GAME DAY!!!!

I think the most daunting part of all of this is that it's hard for me to see the end....just game after game after practice after assignment after meeting after work to grade after to-do list....I'm getting overwhelmed just typing it!

Anyway, I promised to blog more this month, and I want to at least attempt to keep that promise. I've also noticed that I've picked up a few new followers...which absolutely blows my mind since you know, I post daily, and have such awesome things to say! HA!

I think I'll allow myself to imagine if I could get away, where I would go...maybe to Lake Travis, or Dallas to my grandparents' farm, or heck....just being able to be in my own bed for longer than 6 hours! I try to remind myself that one day, I'll wish these days were here again, so I'm trying to stay in the moment....sometimes, a lot easier said than done!

Have a Fantastic Friday everyone!

The Weekend is Upon Us!

Well hello, and welcome to a 3 Day Weekend! I wish I could tell you I had huge plans, but you wanna know what I'll be doing? CHEER CHEER CHEER!!!!! With a little Saturday Night Football in the mix! It's all good though...you know you want my life! HA!

Seriously though, I don't mind! I consider it a huge blessing to be able to directly influence the lives of 27 young ladies...it's not always easy, but it's always worth it!

On a different note, I fell the other day. HARD. In the process I'm sure I twisted my anke a little bit, and I'm super sore. I definitely feel a massage in my future, especially since I own a monthly membership, and I have 3 months worth in the bank...seriously people...how does that happen?!? It is my goal to make this huge wrong RIGHT...ASAP!

Junior League is back in effect, and I am so excited! This year, I am a Provisional Advisor, and the best way I can explain this is to say that I am over a group of ladies (sort of like a pledge class)! My group will be the coolest, most successful group EVER! I'm so excited to lead them..I'll make sure to take a pic so that I can post it! Stay tuned!

One last thing before I leave....it was 82 degrees today!!! Now to some, that is still HOT, but to us Texans...it was a taste of Fall! And after triple digit weather for so long, we needed this reprieve!

I hope you all have a great long weekend....enjoy, relax, and do something for yourself!
