Thankful list...

So, everyone keeps posting what they are thankful for on facebook and I realized it too late, SO for the month of November, I want to list my top 5 thankful list! So much to be thankful for at this stage in my life...however these are ones that are a constant reminder daily.

1. I am thankful for Jesus. Not only does He get me

through the day, but also comforts me in anxious times, which I have had a LOT of lately.
I am also thankful for my new bible study group and the girls that I have met through it. I am thankful for the new churches we are trying in Auburn. We love COH, but feel led to see what else is out there.

2. The most amazing, comforting, caring, funny, cute, helpful husband I could ever ask for. I hate to admit that before we were married I never thought it could be this wonderful. He has made my life better than I could ever have imagine. I love doing 'life' with him. in 11 days it will be 2 years. CRAZY!

3. I am thankful for my family. My parents have shown such a great illustration of a great marriage for Ryan and I. I am a daddy's girl and my mom is
my best friend. I could not ask for more.I am thankful for my brother, Travis. We go in spurts where we are close and when we are not. He helps keep me grounded and he has come SUCH a long way in his life that I am such a proud sister and I am honored to call him my brother!

4. I am thankful for my inlaws. I had the luxury of knowing them VERY well b
efore we got married due to our marathon dating plan, and I am so thankful for the role they play in my life.
They are the m
ost generous, thoughtful people. I honestly look forward to spending time with th
em, always. I am also thankful for my brother and sister in law and they gave us an adorable neice and nephew on the way!

5 I am thankful for our friends. It is crazy how friends come and go, change, and get st
ronger. God has blessed me with strong, lasting friendships. I miss those that we have strayed away, but am blessed beyond belief for those that are always there for me, KNOW me, and love me anyway. Lately I realize how Ryans friends and their wives are such a blessing to us and we have loved enjoying life with them and look forward to many more fun times ahead.

Thank God for my many blessings!

Saturday=Football and Antiques!

Ryan and I have had a perfect Saturday so far! Chili is in the crockpot, Ryan played Golf this morning and I went antiquing! I started off at Resurrect, an antique store, in Opelika.
I found this which I love, LOVE, love! Ryan is lucky I only got what I got, I could have bought the whole store! I am really kind of over my wrought iron look, and really like the rustic/natural look.
and left with my car looking like this...
ignore the bricks, that will be a later post....

So I was on a mission...I wanted to replace this:

and I came home with some of these....
So I recruited this...
and here is the final product:
and I put the extra one here....

Now on to football! War Eagle from the Harbucks!

Wedding Fun!

We had a blast with friends at Courtney and Jim's wedding in Montgomery. It was nice how close it was to Auburn, yet for fun we got a hotel room to be able to enjoy all the fun! Friday night we enjoyed the cocktail rehearsal party, Saturday the Lingerie shower/breakfast for the girls and golf for the boys, and then the beautiful wedding at the Austin home. Great way to start off the football season with our tailgate friends!

1st to 5th

I have grown up this summer, from 1st grade to 5th. This week was the first week of school and it went great! I have prayed for these sweet 10-12 year olds all summer and am so excited to impact their lives educationally and hopefully in other ways as well. Here are SOME of them.

I have a homeroom of 26, but 80 total 5th graders that I teach 5th grade math to. I am so blessed to be at such a great school system, great school, and great faculty. I met about 8 other co-workers Friday at Laredo's (Mexican spot) after work. It is fun getting to know them and I look forward to a great year!

I found this little beauty on the side of the road that someone was throwing away,
so I got it for free.
I knew it had potential! So, I picked it up, attached a mirror,
and viola!

Here is something similar at Pottery Barn for $399 plus shipping and tax.
Mine cost $16 TOTAL!
