time to spill the beans...

(I wrote the first half of this post yesterday...)
First off (before I spill the beans..), It's my birthday!! And what a wonderful day I have had!!! I've been at the lake all weekend with my parents and Ty's family! That is exactly what I wanted to do! So relaxing!!! We have been sun bathing, tubing, sea-doo riding, and eating!!!! :) Perfect way to spend my 24th birthday!!! we go!!!

I got a teaching job!!!!

I started teaching!!! 

I got the job 2 Fridays ago...It was very quick, a resume sent & 2 interviews later and I got the job! I got my room ready this past Thursday and Friday with the help of my amazing mother and Ty's amazing mother! Could not have done it without them!!! 

I feel very blessed to be at the school I am at. The teachers and administration have been so very sweet to me helping the transition go smoothly. God has truly answered a prayer that I have been praying for a LONG time. 

I am super excited about Kindergarten and know it is going to be a wonderful year!! My new babies are so sweet and so little! I just love them already!! 

Again, thank you to all who prayed for me 2 Fridays ago and thank you to my family and friends who have continued to pray through my teaching career journey so far.

I have pictures of my classroom that I haven't gotten off my iPhone yet so when I do, I will post them!!!

Thank you!

Thank you to all who prayed for me on Friday. A huge, gigantic prayer was answered and I am just amazed at how God works. He has proven His love for me over and over and over. I have learned lately not to doubt His perfect plan for my life. I am feeling very very blessed right now and am very excited for the coming days and weeks. Again, thank you so much for the prayers!!!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!!

Can't wait to see their sweet faces tomorrow!!

Last Weekend

Thank you for the sweet comments on my last post!!

Last weekend Melissa and I ran in a 5k in my hometown. It was a great race! It was my first big one, which was a little different. But I think a good different :) There were things I liked about the bigger race but also things I like about smaller races.

 Melissa and I ran it in 30:44 (way under our goal). We were 7th & 8th out of 33 women in our age group! We were very satisfied and loved running together! We thought it was bizarre that we trained in 2 different cities but somehow run at the exact same pace! :)

my supportive sweet boyfriend!
sweet momma! this was the first 5k she got to see me in!

this was melissa's first 5k and she ran it like a champ! i think i got her hooked ;)
On Sunday, we went zip-lining for Ty's birthday! Melissa and Matt joined us which made it extra fun!! We ended up upgrading to the next level and I am so glad we did because it was SO worth it! If anyone is interested, we went to Banning Mills in Whitesburg, GA.

It was so much fun! I would love to do it again!!!

A little down

My heart is hurting a little tonight. School starts tomorrow (for the systems I taught in the past 2 years) and it's just weird not being a part of it. I know God clearly has a different path for me this year and I have accepted that but it's hard. I know I will get over it but that was my life. And now it's not and I feel lost.

To all my blogger friends who are teachers, hug & love on your new babies a little more for me since I don't have any this year! Please!!!

I know I am still a teacher, just took a little break, right?

A short update!

I am sorry I have been MIA this week! I still do not have a computer and haven't really had time to get on Ty's to update this week! So for now, iPhone blog!

As some of you may know, I moved to Birmingham a few weeks ago and have been trying to find a teaching job in the area since March. I have had no luck, not even so much as an interview! So, I started thinking of plan B options because I had to have a job! I looked into nannying and a few other odd jobs and then out of the blue my uncle called wondering if I still needed a job. He had a few openings at his medical billing office. So, after a few interviews and phone conversations, they hired me! I obviously have no medical billing background so they really took a chance with me, which I am so greatful!

Since it is my uncles company, I know he had some pull but they did NOT have to hire me. So I feel very blessed.

I started Monday and am just learning the ropes right now. I have alot to learn!!!

I have gotten a little sad lately with school starting and me not being a part of it but I know God has a purpose and reason for everything. SO, for the time being, I do transmissions and accounts receivables follow up for a medical billing company! Wish me luck!!!

On to my runs for the week...

Monday I ran 2.26 miles in 22:41; 288 calories burned
Tuesday I ran 2.51 miles in 25:31; 321 calories burned
Wednesday I took the day off to rest my muscles
Today I ran 3.14 miles in 32:08; 403 calories burned

I am all ready for my 5k on Saturday! Melissa and I are running it together so I am very excited!!!! I will post pics next week!

I have a new craft to show you that I did this week! Again, will post pics next week!!!

Hope y'all have a great Friday!!!

And thank you to those who commented on my last post, y'all are so sweet!
