Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Here is a pic of my latest silhouette project. I've had this mirror on the wall for a while, so I thought I'd spruce it up a lot.  

Can't believe Joe and I have been married since 2006....and it's 2011!!! Time flies when you're having fun. 

In other news:  My dear, sweet, beautiful, trendy, stylish, hilarious friend JULIA MOORE REHDER is going to get FAT soon because she is PREGNANT! I was so so so excited when I read her blog post announcing it.  Congrats to Julia and Sloan! I have already started scouring my craft blogs to find cute baby gifts to make for you :) 

OH! And the Tigers won in OT tonight against UAB. GO TIGERS GO!

Good night to all!

Quick Birthday Card

Here's a quick little card I whipped up with my silhouette for my friend Charity's birthday.  It was super easy! Just cut out the lace birthday cardstock shape and colored in some of the background! Loving my Christmas present.  Thanks mom and dad! (Sorry for the crappy photo.  Just took it with my phone really quick.)

New Job!

I hope I am not writing to soon, but JOE FOUND A JOB! He is on his 3rd day of work at Twisted South Magazine.  He will be doing ad sales and a little bit of everything else.  He comes home happy and is really enjoying it so far.   Right now he is being paid hourly for a 60 day probationary period.  If things are working out at the end of that, they will talk salary.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that things stay positive.  Hopefully I can cross that goal off of my list :)

I Resolve...

Happy New Year! Do you still remember who I am? I have not updated in about 6 months (burying head in shame) Joe and I had a pretty exciting New Year. We went to bed at 8:00 pm!

2010 has been quite a year for us. So here is a recap of the good, the bad, and the ugly. Just a few highlights.
  1. My students won Best High School Musical in the city of Memphis. Sometimes they drive me so crazy I can't stand to listen to them anymore, but I just watched this video and it reminded me how truly talented my kids are. I'm a pretty lucky teacher!
  2. I finished my licensure program at Union University (Thank goodness. Not sure I could've taken a lot more!) I will be tenured with Shelby County Schools next year.
  3. Joe and I Built an addition to our deck all by ourselves.
  4. I totaled my car on 385. No more Saturn Vue. :(
  5. I got a new-to-me car! Hello GMC Envoy!
  6. I finally got to do another show! I played Annie Oakley in Annie Get Your Gun at Theatre Memphis.
  7. Our house got broken into. They stole a whole lot of stuff.
  8. I went to the Betty Buckley concert and met SETH RUDETSKY...Oh...and Betty Buckley.
  9. Joe graduated from The University of Memphis with a BA in Journalism with a concentration in Advertising. (If anyone wants to hire him LET US KNOW!
10. I got a brand new silhouette SD for Christmas! WOOO HOOOO!

Pretty exciting stuff. I know. BUT moving on to bigger and better things...This year I have decided to set some goals for myself. Thought I'd share them with the blogosphere.

My 2011 Resolutions
(in no particular order)

1. Make a full size quilt

2. Make a minimum of 12 scrapbook pages (in theory one per month)

3. Pay off my credit card debt

4. Have a husband with a full-time job that he enjoys
and also somewhat pertains to his newly acquired degree
(hopefully I won't have to find a new husband to meet this goal)
Goal Met!

5. Prepare my singing time lessons ahead of time
(once again burying head in shame)

Here's to hoping I meet at least some of my goals.
