im a big girl now!

It's official! I got my first big girl paycheck today! It felt so good to put that check in the bank! Now, I know what you're thinking....hello, you are a teacher, you don't get paid jack squat...yes, I'm aware - But to me, the check is HUGE! I'm going to listen to my parents, sister, and Ty when they say not to spend the whole thing and actually save some! However, it feels SO good that I don't have to ask anyone for money, don't have to rely on my parents, can go out to eat anytime I want, can buy groceries anytime I want, etc!!! I am so excited! It seems real now...I am a working girl!!!! When I got my paycheck today, I ran down the hallway telling all the teachers on my hall that I had gotten my first paycheck, I'm sure they thought I was nuts.

This weekend was super fun. Ty's dad's birthday was Saturday so we celebrated together! Lauren came with us and Jessica came on Saturday! What sweet friends I have! We had a cookout, played ladderball and cornhole and ate lots of birthday cake! It was so good to see my family and always good to see Ty's family as well :) We are really lucky our parents were friends before we started dating! They always have a blast when they get together! Ty's mom and cousin recreated the princess cake that Ty's 5 yr old cousin had at her - it was princess and I wanted a princess cake! They did a fabulous job is a picture of my cake and Mr. Bill's 50th birthday cake!

Sunday we ate some of Ty's mom's good home cookin then went to see Christen and Ryan's new house in Riverchase! It was so cute and I am so excited for them! They are painting the whole house and putting some new carpet in! It's going to look so great when they are done! I know they will be so excited to get out of their townhouse! I don't know how they survived living in that little place for so long! They are troopers!

Well, thank goodness Monday is over...Mondays are rough for me! :)

Here is me on my bday with Ty :)

Thats all for now, off to the grocery store!
