We gave A Day...

So we wen to Rawhide on Saturday to do our Disney service day.  We were in helping set up for a fine food and wine tasting event.  The proceeds of the event was going to the boys and girls club.  When we arrived they really didn't know what they wanted us to do. We kept moving tables to a spot and then they would have us move them back to the spot we got them from.  So Reins and I felt kind of lost.  Josh was loving it because they told us to be creative and figure things out.  I don't do that.  I like a set plan.  Josh said I just needed to have fun with it.  We are so opposites, he thrives on thinking outside the box and I thrive on having a plan.  

Here josh is making himself useful and offering some helpful tips

Here Reins and I are getting a photo since we didn't know what else to do....We were eventually assigned light duty and made ourselves useful.  All in all it was an easy service and come December we will reap our reward at Disneyland!  I think its fantastic that Disney is promoting the act of giving service and I realize that I really need to do it more often ( as long as its not visiting teaching cause that is my least favorite service, but we will keep that our little secret).

I am Proud to be an American, but...

I feel so lucky to be born and raised in America. America is the best, however I do have a few complaints about our society:
1. Why don't American schools teach elementary kids another language? In several other countries kids learn 2 languages at school. The whole American idea of teaching us a language once we hit junior high is lame.

2. Our culture is so fat! I am totally guilty of this myself. Darn fast food, ice cream and processed food.

3. Health care/ insurance. So many other countries have this issue under control but our country kind of bites the dust on this one.

But I love my life here in the good Old USA and I don't think there is a better place to be. Could we please just get our good economy back so the stress of losing jobs would go away.

Seeing that today is St. Patty's day I thought I would post about the color green. When I was in high school Lisa used to pick out the green m&m's because they were supposed to make you horny(When you are in high school that is the last thing you need, with all those raging hormones and constant sex brain..) Anyways here is a holla to the color green for keeping everyone horny and happy!

4 years ago today...

I said I DO and gave my viginity to this guy...

(...ahh the sweet memories...)

It was my favorite day every! Being married to Joshy has been so much fun. I would have to say the best things about being married are:

1. Snuggling next to and sleeping with Josh every night. Having him next to me in bed is so much better than sleeping solo.

2. Hanging out with your best friend every day. I love eating dinner with Josh and just getting the pleasure of hanging out with him every day.

3. Making out for as long as I want without being worried about "crossing the line". Being married has some perks.

4. Having a team mate.

The past 4 years have been fantastic! I hope that each year keeps getting better because it has thus far. But I have a feeling that kids will ruin that goal ( I am so motherly). Cheers to marriage, sex and having a lifetime of love with Joshy!

Career Suggestion?

I find out last month that there is a big possibility of me loosing my job for next year. The state is making more budget cuts and our district is cutting back anyhwere they can. I will be devasted to loose my job because I seriously love what I do. I feel like I am back in high school and trying to figure out what to do with my life. I am going to hold on to my teaching career as long as I can, but I need a plan for the future. Should I go back to school? If so what should I go for? Should I just say heck with it and roll with the punches and become a fry's bag lady? Should I get knocked up reguardless of the unkown future? I would love any help or suggestions about careers or school. What do you think I should do? What would I be good at? I can't seem to figure it out. HELP!

Mickey Hats

Today was crazy hat day at school. Lots of kids wore the mickey ear hats and this made me long for disneyland. The smell of churros as you enter main street USA, the wind blowing in your face on space mountain and the bright lights of the fireworks over the castle...and I now I also want a disney hat. My sister hates the bride and groom hats and the mad hatter hats. Just thinking about her annoyance of the hats is making me laugh as I post this. If I was on my honeymoon I would so rock the bride and groom mickey ears! Next time I go to disneyland I am so hitting up the mad hatter store and getting me some mickey ears, its gonna be good! And I will also get myslef a churro. Its been decided.

Feeling Sentimemtal...

So last night as I was watching the bachlor finale, I started to feel sentimental. I had flashblacks of when Josh and I started dating and falling in love. Who knew the bachlor could be so moving? I was thinking back to the first time josh and I held hands. We had only been on one or two dates prior. We were hanging out at az mills mall ( this story sounds like its from Jr high) and he just randomly grabbed my hand. My heart flipped and I got butterflies. I absolutely loved it! When we were dating I got butterflies every time I would see him; being with him made me so giddy! I was a love struck school girl. Now that we have been together for 7 years (WOW) I dont get butterflies everytime I see him, but every time Friday comes around where we are going on a date i get butterflies thinking about spending time with Him. I feel so lucky to have found my soul mate. I love our moments together and I hope that our love never fades. So thanks abc for giving me a moment to think about love.

Weekend Bliss

This weekend was perfect! Josh and I went out to dinner Friday night at Pita Jungle. Then we went to whole foods to pick me up some ice cream (vegan). When we got back home we ate our treats and watched the olympics, which was very entertaining ( this may be the only time I say wathing sports on tv was fun so take notice). Saturday we slept in together and snuggled in bed. Josh went frisbee golfing and I went out with my mom and sister. Sunday after curch we went to Devin and Ruthann for delicous dinner of homeade soup. When we got home we watched the episode of lost we had recorded and snuggled on the couch. Yes i do love a good snuggle and make out session! Hope this week fly's by so I can enjoy another great weekend.

Our wedding--The best day ever!
