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.
