Friday Funday

Well I'm ashamed to say that it has been six months since I've updated my blog. Did I really just say that? Six months? Wow that's definitely TOO long. So much has happened from then until now. Six months ago I got a job as a nanny for a family that lives about six minutes away from me. The girls are three and five and they definitely keep my days interesting. I honestly love being a nanny. I've always loved working with kids and am excited to have my own some day. I'm with them Monday through Friday. We have classroom time, craft time, do activities around the house, and go on lots of outings. I'm really so blessed to have this job while I finish school. Today, being that it was Friday, we went on a fun outing to McKinney Roughs Nature Park. It's a great park a few minutes from our house that has lots of hiking trails and cool little nature center. Today we took a picnic lunch and did a little exploring. Here are a few pictures from our day.

Autumn Bliss

Yesterday, my sister and brother-in-law, and Jordan and I went to a local corn maze/pumpkin patch. This was our second year going, and this year easily trumped last year in numbers and things to do. It felt good to be doing something seasonally appropriate and enjoying the beautiful weather with family. Even though it definitely feels like fall in Texas, it's not quite the same as Ohio. I'm still waiting for the leaves to change! Anyway, I just wanted to post a few pictures from our day yesterday. Enjoy!

DIY Projects

I've always struggled with whether to pay money for cute home decor or flex my creative muscles and create my own decor. The other day, I stumbled upon this sight that gave me so much inspiration. These projects are both doable and reasonably priced! You don't have to be an art teacher to do this on your own, you just have to get off your butt and follow instructions. To do these DIY projects follow the links.

Cute Stationary and Journals

I just absolutely love stationary. It's a must in my life. I mail out letters to friends and family more than I go shopping. It makes me sad to think that most people don't send letters anymore or even use a pen and paper because of technology. Don't get me wrong I love technology, but there is something beautiful about taking the time to show someone you care. Letters don't go away like a text message. It's something you can keep forever. Anyway, all these cute stationary and journals can be found at

Just Right

Wow, I've definitely neglected my blog in the past few weeks. Busy hardly defines my summer so far. School, work, friends, photography, babysitting, etc. have all filled my time. They are all things I love and learning how to juggle them all is like learning a circus act. So far, though, I have enjoyed every minute of it. With Jordan gone it can get lonely at my place so I've been trying to keep busy and have sleep overs as much as possible. He comes home late tonight and then leaves again in a week to travel with the band Burgundy Road. I'm really proud of him for doing what he loves and being able to make decent money while he does it. That's my dream/goal :) I thought I would post a few random pictures from the past few weeks. Some are of friends and family, some are of me. Hope you enjoy!

Birthday Boy

Last Sunday Jordan turned 25. After work on Saturday I came home and surprised him with a strawberry cheesecake (no it was not homemade go ahead go ahead and judge me) and we celebrated with gifts at our house and dinner with family Sunday evening. All I can say is that getting to spend the past three out of twenty five years of this man's life with him has been amazing and I feel so grateful to be apart of it all. Happy Birthday Jordan!!
