So I now know my grades for 4/5 classes. I have 2 As and 2 Bs. I am happy with that grade! I just hope my last grade is a A. I don't know because my teacher has not graded our project that is worth over half of our grade. I hope I made an A on it. If I did then I get an A in the class. :)
Today, I am going to babysit Vann and Sydney. They are both sooo cute! I have not babysat them in a few weeks so I know they will be excited to see me. I need to go to the library to drop off books. I have like 10 here and I think I should probably bring them back lol!
Anyway, there is my blip for today...

Christmas /everything else on my mind.

It's CHRISTMAS TIME!!!!!!! YAY!!!! I only have one more final to take. I am sooooo happy that this semester is almost over!!! I cannot wait till I take my final tomorrow and its all done. I have completed 4/5classes now.

I miss Mikel a whole lot! He left on the 30th of November. He has been gone for 9 days now... I am so happy though, that when he comes home in May.... I will be going back with him.
It is weird to think that in 14days I will have been engaged for a year. Its kinda weird to think that... you would think I would be used to being engaged by now.. since its been a year... but I guess i'm not. It is crazy to think that in just 5 months I will be living in Arizona, in a land far far away from here. I mean, I have known this for how long??? But still... I mean, its scary to me.

Everyone keeps on saying the following verse to me... Whenever i mention about leaving FL and all that. "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. (KJV)". Ok something to note... it says a MAN shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife. umm... last I checked I am not a man! LOL! Just thought I would point that out to whomever reads this.

Now I will put the verses from Ephesians just to cover everything.

"Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." Ephesians 5:21-33 (NIV)
Anyway, that's my blip for now... lol!

Wednesday, September 01, 2010


Well its September now!!!!!!
I turn 21 in 6 days. I am kinda excited about that! School is a little crazy fro me! I am taking 5 classes; Applied Foundation of Education, Educational Management of the Exceptional Child, ESOL Principles and Practice, Intro to the Exceptional Child and Survey of Normal/Abnormal Speech/language. All of these classes = lots of work. LOL!!
Anyway, I have been busy with that. This weekend is the youth car wash/bakesale/Woman's Yard sale @ my church. The next weekend is Rock the Universe and the following my birthday party.... Then I am hoping to go up to TN on the following weekend (26th). I am excited about that!
Anyway, i dont have anymore time to write.

Friday, August 13, 2010


So it's 2am and what am I doing? I am writing in my blog of course.... lol!!
Lets see whats new if anything... I have been sleeping in till like 1pm for a few days now... however, that is because I am up till 4am talking to Mikel. (Yes, I know I am crazy.)

Carrie posted something on facebook that really got me thinking (I will add it at the end). What if I really did spend as much time reading God's word and take my bible everywhere like I do with my cell phone. I spend a lot of time talking to people on the phone, texting people.. and generally I do not go anywhere without my phone. That's how it should be with my bible and God. I should spend most of my time talking to him and reading his word.... Whereas somehow i manage to hit 10,000 (yes, 10,000) texts a month not to mention a whole lot of minutes spent talking on the phone. How is it that I can spend so much time talking to others and learning about them, yet I don't spend anywhere near that amount of time trying to get to know my savior more or even just talking with him.... I haven't even opened my bible in a month... This is sad.... :( I mean what is wrong with me that I don't spend time with the most important person in my life? My problem is somehow.... someone else/something else replaced God... Which is really not good... So how do I fix this? I make sure I spend time with my Prince, Jesus Christ, reading His word and talking to Him.

Carrie's note on FB::::
Cell phone bible challenge
Have you ever wondered what would happen if we treated our Biblelike we treat our cell phone?
What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we flipped through it several times a day?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to our kids as gifts?
What if we used it when we traveled?
What if we used it in cases of emergency?
What if we cared as much about God's Word as we do our cell phone?
Well heres the challenge:
first bring your bible (just a littlepocket one) everywhere you bring your cell including the grocerystore bathroom
next everytime you get on the internetsing a praise song to the lord (loud enough for others to hear butyou dont have to shout) it doesnt matter where you are sing to ourlord
next anytime you make a phone call youare talking so after you are done talk to the lord for atleast aminute
when someone calls you, you arelistening. So everytime someone calls you just be quite and sit thereturn off your music and just listen to the lord
now the one I hate because it is hard.Every time you receive a text you must read the bible (I am chossing3 scriptures make sure you make a number for you and start)
everytime you send (AHHHHHHHH) 10messages you must share the love of jesus with someone else. Tellthem jesus loves them (not a friend like a total stranger or someonewho doesnt know you ar a christian)

Well, I am home again from TN. I am actually on the phone with Mikel right now. I am helping the person I babysit move into her new house. It is a hugs house with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathroom, an pretty big kitchen and living room and also a pool. Tomorrow, I get to go help more which is good because I need the money. I am going to apply to work as a sub and also at the YMCA on the north end of town. Hopefully I will get one of the jobs, because I need all the money I can get because of having to pay for so much for the wedding and moving and such. Helping Stacey move was really weird for me because I was thinking that probably the next time I do that, I will be moving into a house/apartment of my own with my husband. Thats just weird to think about... I will be married... Really Really weird. lol! Yes, I know this but its still weird... lol! Anyway, I will try to write more later..


Saturday, August 07, 2010


Well, I am in Tennessee for possibly the last time for a long time. I hope I get to come up here one more time before my wedding but who knows. :( I have been going a little crazy doing things for the wedding and also just getting things done. I manged to some how make an A on all 4 of my summer classes. I am very happy about that!! I start class in 16days. Then I will be taking 15credit hrs. Plus planning a wedding. This is going to be a crazy next few months.... Anyway, this is all I have time to write latter hopefully I will write more.

moving... Mixed feeings..

I can't believe that in less than a year I will be living in Arizona with my husband. Its weird when people say next June or July we are going to do....... and I think that would be awesome and then i'm like wait, I wont be here :( . I am so excited about getting married!!! But, I am going to be so far away from everyone :( I have 10 months to spend with everyone before I go to AZ and I don't know when I will be back. Hopefully, it will be sometime soon after that... but who knows... I have lived in FL my whole life... This is going to be soooo different!! Anyway, that was random... Night!

Its been a while....

Me as Buddy Barrel
So, Its been a few weeks since I last posted. I have pretty much been sick now for
3 weeks straight on Friday. I had 4days of not being sick... I hate colds!! Anyway, lets see what has happened in the past few weeks. I helped with VBS @ Restoration Family Church (the church where I'm having my wedding @ :D). That was fun! I was Buddy barrel and I also did puppets and was in a short skit. I also helped with drawing and just making sure the kids did what they were supposed to. This was the last weekend in June. For independence day, I went down south to Mikel's aunt and uncles house for 3days. That was TONS of fun!! I have been really sick since then. Jessica came home on July 6th. YAY!!!! Sweet is here which I haven't seen in a few years. She spent the night last night. Her mom was there when I was born, so yea... We have known each other for a long time!!! In a few weeks I am going to Tennessee. :D I am excited about that! Btw, my Spanish class ended June 29th. I am in 2 education classes right now. They end technically Aug 5th, but I will have already done everything by July 27th. I should be leaving for TN on July 27th. Right now I have an A in both classes which is awesome!!! Anyway, I am getting back to my busy life, I hope I will have time to post again soon!

Friday, June 18, 2010

Well I am now officially done with my American History class. :D I took the final this morning, spent all day yesterday typing the last paper for that class and writing my discussion post. On Wednesday my two teaching classes officially start, however I have already begun doing the homework. I was hoping to be able to buy my text books today, but that didn't happen.. oh well! The book store is now closed on Fridays because of it being summer. :/ I wish i had known that I would have went an bought my books yesterday, now I have to wait till Monday to get them. :( I can't finish some of the homework that's due a week from Monday because of not having the text books. So much for trying to get ahead. I already despise my technology education class. Too much work for my liking in a 6 week period lol! but, I have to have it for my degree.
I cant wait till Aug 5th when I have 2 weeks off from school (the closest I get to summer break).

On the 29th I have my Spanish final, so that class will be over. I have so much to do for my other two classes so its a good thing, although I will miss my Spanish class.

Tomorrow I am baby sitting from 9am- Sunday. Its going to be a long day!! Also, Tomorrow is Arielle's B-day party.

Anyway, I am on skype with Mikel, so I am going to stop writing.

Wednesday, June 16, 2010



Ok so, I just took my Spanish test... I think it went ok.... I have a paper due tomorrow, and my final on Friday... I start my other two classes on wed... AAAHHH!
ok I think im done yelling/screaming lol! I have WAY too much to do so this is short.
I am working tomorrow, Fri, and sat... Arielle's b-day party is sat! cant wait!! She turned 4 on the 9th.. She is getting to big...
lol! Hopefully ill find time to write this weekend.

Dave Barnes - God Gave Me You (Official Video)

I miss them already!

So, i have been busy, its now Saturday. lol! I am working on my last paper for my history class. I got a 89% on the last one i did so this one i need like a 94% on just so that I don't have to be so worried about the final.. lol!

Carrie's grad was awesome!!! So many people came! I had a lot of fun at it. Carrie instead of wearing a normal cap wore one from Disney with mouse ears lol! She skipped down the asile instead of walking down it.. It was so totally Carrie!!! lol!

My sisters both left early this morning. Carrie, I wont see again until sometime in December, Jess however comes back in 3 weeks. I am going to miss the both a whole lot!!! I woke up this morning and was like wow! the house is empty. :( Carrie I will only see a couple more times before I move to AZ. That's really weird and kinda scary for me... I mean she has been up in TN a whole lot, but she wasn't moving permanently until she left this morning.

It kind of stinks that I wont be here to see my little brothers grow up. Andrew is turns 10 in 10 days, Josh turns 12 on Aug 26th. Josh is going to become a teenager before I will get to see him again; once I live in AZ. and my short little baby Andrew will probably get taller, maybe even taller than me... I am going to miss them lots!!!

Jess turns 16 in April of next year. She is growing up so fast, next thing I know, it will be her planning a wedding and all that. I am going to miss being here and laying next to her on the bed as she tells me all about whomever, and all about whatever happened that day. We will just have to talk on the phone a lot I guess..... but that is still not the same.

I wont get to be here anymore and spend time with my parents. My mommy will be too far away to come and see her... My daddy as well. It takes 9hrs by plane to get here from AZ (at least that's what I understood from Mikel). I miss them all already.. :(

I am going to be far away from all of my friends as well, I wont get to be here when some of them graduate or be here when they finally find that guy. I wont get to be here for Arielle's first day of kindergarten. :( I am going to miss everything because I will be so far away. Everyone that has become so dear to me will be far far away! I just hope they write me via, facebook, email, snail mail or call me, whatever so at least I kinda know whats going on.

I miss everyone already, and I have not even left, nor will I for 356days.. oh well..

Tuesday, June 08, 2010


So I put these pictures up on my facebook and some people thought I got married(this is Carries 18th B-day party). I found this funny, but I wish I had really got married! But oh well, I still have to wait till June 3rd of next year. :(

So my test yesterday was kinda hard! I am worried about my grade.. :/ Maybe I did better than I think, but I don't know..

Today, I have my presentation for my Spanish class. I am doing it on Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence day, it celebrates the miracle of a battle won by the Mexicans. They were fighting with the french and had very little men, and few weapons, yet somehow they were able to beat them. This is what Cinco de Mayo is all about the victory at el pueblo.

Anyway, so once again I am sitting at McDonalds waiting on it to be time to go to class. lol!! I am bored!!

Monday, June 07, 2010

lots of stuff to do.

I got my second ear piercing last night :D

So since Wednesday, I have been doing a lot! Thursday morning I took my AMH midterm, then babysat till like 3. I came home and had to work on things like cleaning the house (because Grammy and Poppop get here on Wednesday), and working on homework. We went to Evan's HS graduation. I am very proud of him for finishing!! We drove home that night and didn't get home till after 2am. I finished my AMH paper on yesterday morning, finished all my online AMH homework on thr, finished my online SPN homework yesterday, and wrote my paper for Spanish yesterday. I still have to write my presentation for tomorrow.. I decided to do it on Cinco de Mayo. I have my 2nd SPN test today.... I am really not ready for it.. I am so tired!! Jessica has to be at dance camp at 9am every morning this week, and I have to take her because its here in Brandon where im going to school for the summer. I now have to leave my house by 8am, when i used to not leave till 10:30am. nevertheless, I am awake way earlier than normal. Next week I have my final for AMH. I am hoping I did really good on the midterm.... but who knows we shall see.......

So Saturday morning I went to the post office to pick up my anniversary present from Mikel. our anniversary is the 14th. Guess what I got??????? A new laptop. :D my old one has been having problems and driving me crazy!!! So now I get to use this one, which is brand new!!
Mikel is the bestest!!!!!!!!!!!! I love him so very very very much!!!!!!

Anyway, now I am going to study a little bit for my SPN test that is in 2hrs.

Crazy Wed

So today I went to school... which of course was loads of fun.. lol! I have been exhausted all day! I slept all the way through the night last night for the first time in a while. On my way home from school I had to have my dad fix the blinker on the left side of my car. He was able to fix it. But the whole thing was aggravating because we had just replaced the entire thing less than a month ago so it shouldn't already be having problems. Oh well. So, on my way home from my dad's work my car overheated and so I ended up sitting on the side of the road for a little over an hour having not ate anything yet.. (it was after 3pm). So nevertheless i got a little over heated and came home feeling horrible.... I am feeling a lil better now that I took a shower and have a fan blowing on me... I was originally planning on going to youth group but, I'm kinda stressed and don't feel good and in the words of my mother "it would be better for them if you don't go." So, I am not there lol! oh well... the youth group will have to practice the drama for Sunday without me. Right now I am thinking of laying down for a 30min nap before I "hit the books" again. I am taking my midterm in my history class tomorrow, have 2 paper due and a test on Monday, a presentation on Tuesday and this Thursday is Evan's graduation up in Middleburg. Grammy and Poppop get here on Wednesday and are here till Saturday... Carries grad is on next Thursday..
So I have a CRAZY week coming up.. If you think of me pray for me lol!!


My Tiara
Arielle, Me, Ava
Arielle, Me, Ava

pictures from Carrie's party yesterday... Ill write something later on

Happy B-day Carrie!

So, today was Carrie's 18th birthday party. She had a princess tea party, which we all found kinda funny because Carrie has always acted like a tomboy... lol! Carrie had 3 kids there and the rest were teenagers or adults. It was a lot of fun, but I am exhausted! Arielle and Ava were fighting over me all night, they are both 4(well Arielle turns 4 in a few days). During the night I was holding both of them and dancing and the back of my dress where the zipper is ripped so ohwell, so much for keeping that dress(at least it only cost $8)...
Class again in the morning... Poor Mikel he called me tonight during the party wanting to talk and of course, I was kinda busy. Now hes out doing whatever and not available to talk and i'm about to fall asleep.... such is life for the next two weeks... I'm going crazy running on very little sleep trying to help everyone out and somehow still get my own homework done.
I keep on thinking about my wedding today with all of the party stuff going on.. oh guess what? I got to see my tiara today, and I took it home with me. I am borrowing it from some very good friends of mine... Its so beautiful Ill add a pic to this post if i can.
Well anyway, I'm falling asleep while typing, so i guess I'll go to bed... Night all!

Memorial Day

So I just got back from the memorial day cook out with our home group. I decided to switch from xanga to blogspot so three of my posts say that they are from today, but I put the real date they were written at the top.
Today has been a great day! I got to spend time with Mr. Mike and Mrs. Shirley who I haven't seen in 3 years. I have missed them a whole lot! They are awesome!!! Like I thought, the cook out was loads of fun. I have class tomorrow... During the summer im taking an American history class, a Spanish conversation class, and two teaching classes; teaching diverse populations and teaching with technology. All but the Spanish class are online. Yes, I'm the crazy student who takes 12credit hours during the summer. lol! oh well. Tomorrow, I have my Spanish test, on thr, i'm going to take my midterm for my history class... my teaching classes don't start till the 23rd. I have to prepare a presentation for my Spanish class... I'm thinking of doing it on Mexico.
I miss Mikel so very much right now!! I am on the phone with him, I just wish I could be with him right now! Only 368 days till I'm getting married to him. :D I can't wait till that day!!

So I ended up babysitting over night last night... It was interesting... I didn't get much sleep... I was up till 2am on the phone with Mikel. He is 3hrs behind my time.... which sometimes stinks (late at night), and sometimes is nice(early in the morning). Anyway, so this morning I wake up and here Vann(4) and Sydney(7next week) playing... I go and check on them, change the clothes over that I was washing for there mom, and to get to the laundry room I have to go through the play room. I saw something red on the floor and was like, what is that. It was paint... They had apparently decided to paint something i have no idea what because they never showed me... But the floor, the carpet, the chairs and the table and other various places around the house had paint on them... What a way to ruin a morning. Oh and also, I woke up with a headache.. So between the two... ugh!!! So while I am cleaning up paint, Vann decided to open the front door and he let the dog out. I had to chase Angel down the street to get her back into the house.... We did somehow make it to church this morning... and we were 10min early(I have no idea how that happened).
Church was nice... I had a really bad headache but luckily by the time i was needed to help in children's church it had gone most of the way away. I helped teach about Daniel and the lions den... It was fun but crazy because the whole youth group decided to join the kids... lol!!! After church, I took Vann and Syd to CiCi's pizza for lunch and then we spent the rest of the day at the park. At almost 5pm their parents came home. I made $110 for this weekend :D too bad I don't get to keep any of it.

So, Mr. Mike and Mrs. Shirley gave me and Mikel a leather pull out couch that looks brand-new!!! It is amazing!! I have always wanted a leather couch I think they are the most comfortable couches ever!!! Lol!!
Since writing the above I have just got home from Dollar Tree where by brother Joshua decided to drive me CRAZY by picking up stuff and going away from me in the store where I had to look for him every where.
Our home group collected things that Mr. Mike and Mrs. Shirley. I needed to get a big gift bag for all of the stuff and guess what I found while I was doing that,?? Rose petals 300 for $1, that’s cheaper than oriental trading (300 for $4). I was so happy to find those… I bought all of them... But there were only 12 bags lol! I am tempted to go to the other Dollar Tree and buy more…. So I have now started my buying for my wedding… only 169 days to go, I can’t wait!!! Anyway, tomorrow is memorial day, so Happy Memorial Day everyone!!!
I am going to a cook-out/swim party today. It should be loads of fun! I'm not going swimming but it will still be fun!!!!!!!
Happy Memorial day!!!

Here is a quick update on my life.
I now go to a church called H.I.M. (Harvest International Ministries). I have been doing to HIM since the end of January 2008. It is an awesome church!! It is small where everyone knows each other. I help a lot in the youth group, as a youth leader. I just wrote a drama which will be being preformed in the next two weeks in front of the church. I haven't been to Mexico since June 2008. I miss it a whole lot, but have been taking summer classes so it’s been impossible to go. I'm not teaching dance anymore... maybe someday I will again lol!
I have been the president of a Christian club @ my college up until this summer I am no anymore because I have switched colleges( I applied at UWF for this fall..). That has been awesome… God has taught me so much through SHOUT! I am not as shy as I once was. I know have the courage to pray in front of people, and to talk about Jesus in school and not really care what others think.
Recently I changed my major to teaching... I ended up not doing so well in nursing school... My teaching classes are completely online… When I finish I will have a BA in Exceptional Student Education, (Elementary, K-6, & Special Education, K-12, With ESOL Specialization). I am very excited about this because I am moving next year to AZ,( if you continue reading you know why) and I will need to be online to continue to keep receiving my scholarships.

In the beginning of 2009 I met the most amazing man in the world, Mikel. He and I got engaged December 23rd, 2009. Mikel is in the air force and is stationed in AZ. He and I met at college at a SHOUT! meeting. We started dating “officially” June 14th, 2009. He proposed to me at Disney world at the Grand Floridian Resort, out on the beach close to the wedding chapel. He got down on one knee and everything… It was the best day of my life!!! Oh the joke that you might hear is about duckies. You see, Mikel proposed to me in front of 8 ducks. It’s now a kind of inside joke… his brother bought him 8 rubber ducks for x-mas. I got him a green one when I went to PA and MA a few months ago. We are getting married June 3rd, 2011. I am so excited about that one… then I of course am moving to AZ to live with my husband. So I have a lot to do in the next 370 days…. Hopefully ill have time to blog… we shall see lol!

Tonight I am babysitting two kids, probably over night... Thats my job, besides helping an elderly lady every once and a while. June 26th I take my test to become a CNA. Right now I am looking for a job. I applied at the hospital, and I hope I get the job. My sister Carrie turns 18 on june 19th and will be moving to TN. I am going to miss her a whole lot!!!! Mikel, my fiance doesn't come back to FL till Thanksgiving.. I am hoping to go to AZ for my birthday, but who knows.
I can't think of anything else to write right now.. lol!

if anyone is reading this please comment. Lol! I would like to know whether im just writing to air or not.
