Sorry, for the week late post, but I've been a little under the weather lately. So, here's the scoop: a week ago today I was in OK, helping throw a baby shower for Teri(my bf from high school). She is having a baby girl, Abbigail, who I can't wait to meet! April can't come soon enough!! Can I just say that this shower was like the cutest baby shower that I've ever been to! If you know my friend Teri(which most of you don't-you would love her),you know that she does things and likes things done to the EXTREME and this event was no different! We had the shower at her church and let me just tell you there was PINK, PINK, PINK EVERYWHERE! The shower had a theme: pink and bears. The center table pieces included teddy bears wearing diapers(so cute)and flowers. Then, there was the tower of diapers cake(way cool), the pink(yes, Amy-Teri's sis- it was a darker shade of pink-not purple) baby stroller cake, and the pink ice cream punch-yum! This shower was done ALL OUT! I had the best time and was so glad that I could be a part of this special day! Teri and Chris you are going to be great parents-Congrats!! I can't wait to meet sweet, baby Abbigail! Lots of love, Auntie Amanda!!!
For those of you who don't know, this month is Dental Health Month. Being the teacher that I am, I used my resources, and asked a dentist(whom I meet at BSF) to come into my classroom. This past Friday, Dr. Jonathan Heizer, came into my classroom and talked to my little kiddos about how to keep their teeth clean. He did such an amazing job and was great with my students! He brought in a jumbo set of teeth to demonstrate and show my kids the proper way to brush and floss their teeth. My kids loved him! Thanks Dr. Jonathan for taking time out of your busy schedule to come visit our classroom!! Remember, you should brush your teeth atleast twice a day and floss once a day-keep your teeth healthy and smile BIG=) Happy Dental Health to all!!!
Sorry for the late post, but hey better than never! I had the best Valentine's Days ever. My V-Day Celebration started early this year. My lil sis, Charity, came down on Tuesday night. We had dinner at On the Border-thanks to my dad's gift card at Christmas. We stuffed ourselves and got dessert to go! Then we headed off to BSF(Bible Study Fellowship), just in time for the lecture. Afterwards, we headed home to put our p.j.'s on and do some my spacing. I totally helped her set up her cool new page. I know, all of you are probably reading this in astonishment-but hey I've come a long way in the technology department! Yate's you should be so proud!! I took off work on Wednesday so my sis and I had a day of sister bonding, which was way over due! We slept in and then went to brunch at Mimi's Cafe-we love this spot! Then, we were off to do a little shopping. My new favorite spot is Compass Trading Co. Great accessories for a low price. Kinda reminds me of Sam Moon, but I think the stuff is way cooler and you don't have to fight the HUGE crowds of people and best of all it's in Ft. Worth!! Afterwards, we headed over to the Dantzler's house to see Ames and baby Simon-had to get my Simon fix! It was great to see you Ames and baby Simon!! Later that night, Charity and I went to the Movie Tavern(way cool-you can eat and watch a movie at the same time in these really cool spinning chairs)to watch Fools Treasure. It was a cute movie. I totally recommend the Movie Tavern, so if you haven't been yet, you so need to go! So that was my early V-Day date. I had the best time with my sister! I haven't laughted so hard in a long time. I love spending time with you sis! We can laugh pretty much about anything, even if it isn't all that funny-and be rolling on the ground! Thanks for making V-Day special for me!!! Love ya tons!!! Thanks to my wonderful girl friends, Yates and Kasey, I had a fabulous V-Day night! We grabbed take out at Carino's and watched an episode of October Road. I am so thankful to have such great and wonderful friends! Thanks girls for making my V-Day night a special one! Love yall!!
For those of you who aren't teachers or don't have children in school...Guess what? Yes, today was the 100th Day of School and that means a HUGE celebration in kindergarten!!! Today was one of my all time favorite days of teaching! We did all kinds of fun activities with the number 100. We made a 100 headband, stamped 100 times, made a snack with 100 things, counted to 100(by 1's,5's,10's), did 100 exercises, read a story about The 100th Day of School, and wrote about what we would buy if we had $100 dollars. I had so much fun teaching today! HAPPY 100TH DAY OF SCHOOL!!!
Saturday night Rach and I hosted dinner for six at our house. We cooked this fabulous meal and slaved all day over a hot stove- yeah right- we totally got a frozen lasagna from Cosco and put it in the oven! Whatever-it was yummy!! We had a great dinner at our house and then headed to Main Event to catch up with the rest of the GAP class for bowling. I had sooo much fun!!! I haven't been bowling in about a year(one so can tell by my skill-ha,ha). Anyway my second game was a little better than my first and I came so close to braking 100-my score was 99-so close! Scott totally blew everyone away with his SPEED bowling skills! He would let go of the ball and it was as fast as lightning-I so would have been scared if I was one of those pins!! Anyways, my competitive side always comes out and atleast I beat Lee, so all is good!!! I love Dinner for Six and Bowling-I have so many great memories and have made so many good friends along the way!!!
On Saturday morning, I got to do one of my all time favorites, meet with my dearest friend and mentor Betty. A couple of years ago I meet Betty through a Woman to Woman Mentoring Ministry at Travis Avenue Baptist Church. We ate brunch at Mimi's Cafe and caught up on life. God has truly used this godly woman in my life(she has so much knowledge and wisdom) and I am truly blessed by our friendship!!
I live in the wonderful city of Ft. Worth, Texas! I have lived here for seven years and teach kindergarten at Westcreek Elementary. I really love my job and working with children; however, I always have at least one student who gives me a run for my money! I attend church at Travis Avenue Baptist Church where I lead a small group of fifth grade girls for L.I.T. on Sun. nights. Things I enjoy: hangin out with friends, take-out, icecream, running, shopping, traveling, spending time with the fam, watching: Alias, Grey's, Brothers and Sisters, football-go Cowboys, and Sooners,and basketball-go Sooners, and Mavs! I just moved into a house and love it-life is good!!
