bee mine...

i have been a terrible blogger and i think my blog feels very neglected.
my social calendar has been quite empty the past few weeks and all of a sudden everyone wants to hang out. so that is what has been keeping me away from my dear little blog.
well lets go back to valentine's day shall we?

my valentine's day was truly delightful. although i don't have a special someone in my life i was determined to not be one of those people who hates valentine's day just because they're single. there are so many other people in my life who i love and care about and who love and care about me. and i definitely felt loved and appreciated on v-day.
my students spoiled me the most.

then my dear friend, amie, left me these.
i have the best friends.

fill in the blank fun

1. I am hoping my Valentine's day this year includes  a boy would be nice, not going to lie lol  .

2. My biggest guilty pleasure is   watching the disney channel, i love it  .

3. I am most proud of   how much i've grown and matured in just the past year .

4. If I could choose one outfit to live in it would be   a cute dress, tights, and heels  .

5. People are  very inspiring. the more people i come across in this blogging community the more amazed i become at all the talent and creativity  .

6. I would rather    receive valentine's from my students     than   receive them from some dumb boy  .

7. I love my    family    more than   anything  .

more hours in a day please

i really do need more hours in a day when it comes to weekdays. i feel like i never have time for anything. after work i run, shower, eat dinner and then i have maybe an hour before i need to get to bed. during that hour i should be doing important stuff like studying for the gkt, working on my application for grad school, or reading my daily devotional but i'm so tired from the day that i just do nothing. then i also want extra time to do non-important things like watch tv, read my book or write a new post for my blog. right now i should actually be in bed instead of writing this but oh well.
anyone else have this problem?

in other news i finally found what i will be sending my person for the knick knack exchange! i'm so happy because i was kind of stressing out about it. i'm not the most creative person in the world so it takes awhile for things to come to me. i think i found the perfect knick knack though because it really shows a big part of me and i love it so i hope she will too.

also krissa received the book i sent  her! she was my person for the book swap.
you can read all about it in her cute blog randomness
can't wait to receive my book, i'm so curious:)

leaving so soon weekend...

this weekend went by too fast. but i guess you could say that about every weekend.
on saturday i spent the day with my mom and we did some shopping, and then we went to see "dear john". the movie was ok, but i actually prefer the book even though at first i didn't care for it much.

on sunday i set out for a seven mile run and i ended up doing an eight mile run! and it was fairly easy for me so that really gave me the confidence to think i'm going to kick butt in the half marathon. 

then at church they had former miami dolphins player, glenn blackwood, as a speaker and he was very inspirational. i love hearing people share their love for God and what He means to them.
of course i also watched the super bowl. i was cheering for the saints, so yay saints! i think its funny how when i was a cheerleader in highschool i had no idea what was going on during football games but after attending a dolphins game last year i have a new love for the game.

so now after talking about football i'm going to be a total girly girl and tell you about the cutest shoes i bought this weekend. they were a steal, regular price $100 and i got them for $23! don't you just love that.
my mom says she thinks i have way too many shoes. i say you can never have enough shoes.

it's the little things

i just need to tell you about the amazingness that is sally hansen insta-dri nail polishes. i love painted nails but i absolutely hate painting them myself and then waiting for them to dry. i also hate when you think they're finally dry and you do something and you smudge a nail and have to do it all over again. but with sally hansen insta-dri my problems are solved! they dry in less than a minute and with only one coat the color looks great. oh sally hansen i love you so!
it's the little things in life sometimes i tell ya!

dear john

just finished reading "dear john" and i must admit i'm very disappointed. the previews of the movie made it seem so promising, it even brought tears to my eyes (no joke i cry over anything even slightly sentimental). but the book just didn't do it for me. anyone else read the book? thoughts?

of course i will still be going to see the movie this weekend if nothing else but to stare at this gorgeous gentleman.

darn you bug!

hello blog world, so nice to be back!
i've been very sick the past few days which is why i've been slacking on the posting. last week a few of my students had been absent due to a stomach bug and on friday i thought i had done a good job of steering clear from it. saturday i felt so good i even ran 6 miles. yes 6 miles! but then that night my stomach started to feel a little funny and sunday that bug officially caught me:(
 i finally feel better today and i got back to my running(and blogging). 
now that i'm back in blogging mode i want to make a pretty blog header and katie from color me katie (who i think happens to be one of the most creative and inspiring people ever) is being so kind and letting me use one of her amazing photos.

what do you think?
now i just have to figure out how to do it:/

i also must tell you i just started reading "dear john" and i must finish before this weekend so i'll be m.i.a. again for a few days starting... now!
