I Failed the Photo Challenge.....

.....or did I? 
The goal wasn't necessarily to finish, but just to start blogging more, which I did, so while I failed at the specific challenge, I achieved my over all least that's what I'm telling myself, so I don't feel so bad about completely dropping the ball! =)

~Random Updates~

~Staff meetings are as fun as I always thought they'd least I got paid for the extra time!

~In spite of the staff meetings, (along with a few other annoyances.....) I really am enjoying my job!

~Clark (my car, in case you didn't know) scared me by attempting to die, but thanks to the mechanics and my amazing dad carpooling with me and my crazy ever changing work schedule, my the car is fixed and I always got to work! 

~The fall bug has bit me hard, I've been doing back to school at work for 3 weeks now and I'm drinking pumpkin and caramel apple themed drinks from Buckhead. So I wish the temp would stop reaching into the 90's, accompanied by "air you can wear" as one weather man referred to the humidity!

~I'm thinking of doing this to my hair again..... I have to wear it up all the time, it just gets in the way when I work and I get headaches when I wear my hair up everyday.....any thoughts?

Day Twenty-One

~Summer Time~

As you already know I went to visit my sister this week end, I had a fantastic time and Megan and Buggy got to come back and stay with us the rest of us for the week! Here are some pics from a great summer weekend!
 TinkerBell (my sisters cat) loves cereal milk, she stalked me until I let her drink some!

But Mom, I know I can fit two in there, see? ;-) 

Found this lovely little confection at World Market, haven't had it since Bend and may have bought two bars..... hey, the whole family loved it, I would have been in trouble had I not brought any back!

Their yard is full of these tiny little frogs, I hate to think of stepping on them, but you don't really notice the unless they're moving!

Selfies in the Starbucks line! 
Taken after an hour detour and before discovering all of the exits to the interstate I needed to get on were CLOSED and the crossing my fingers driving though downtown Birmingham!

Day Fifteen

A little peek into our yard!

Just a heads up, you won't be seeing me for a few days as this lucky gal is spending the weekend down in Alabama with her sister! I was going to set up scheduled posts, but a surprise 2 hour visit to a walk in clinic to get a medical release for work filled out, I kind of ran out of time, it was blog or pack and I decided to pack! 

I'll see all you lovely gals on Monday!

~What I Wore~

 Dress: Wal-Mart, Cowboy boots (not worn, of course!) Wal-Mart
 Bee necklace: Little gift shop attached to Buckhead, bought today and worn immediately because it was so darn cute!

Day Nine


For about two hours on five days out of seven this is my life!! If you look closely you can see the backed up traffic, it doesn't mater if I get off at 4:30pm or after 6:00pm, this is what it looks like! =P
But, I'm really loving my job and starting next week I'm being promoted to teachers assistant!!

Day Eight

~An Activity I Love~

Day Seven

~In My Bag~

Ahem.....there is a reason I have such large purses, I carry around a lot of stuff....including but not limited too:
Sunglasses case
Binky (my nieces)
Lego ( from my last nannying job!)
Fingernial clippers
Medical release (I need to fill it out for work)
Two kinds of hand sanitizer
Two kinds of Starbursts
Flash light
Foldable hairbrush/mirror
Change purse
A pair of earrings 
Tilly the Tardis 
Tickets to Beauty and the beast!!!!!!!!

Sometimes a water bottle, a book, and even lunch get stuff in there too, but since the strap on my lovely, lovely big purse is broken I've had to downsize and I can really only fit what is pictured and nothing extra!

Day Six

~A Favorite Place~

A road near my house that never fails to make me smile, it looks like something out of a movie and I'm all about pretending my life is a movie, now if only I could the soundtrack working..... ;-)

Day Three


The universe very kindly complied with today's theme and sent an abundance of water down from the sky, AKA it's raining and this is a pic of one of the pots of flowers on our back porch! I was going to take  a pic of the water that courses through our basement every time it rains, but alas and alack, the stream was not there when I went to take pics!

Day Two


Today at work we had a magician visit the school and I thought that would have been perfect, but then I remembered we are not allowed to post pics taken in the school on the internet *sigh* oh well, you'll have to accept this picture of my hand during the drive home stop and go (mostly stop) traffic!

Day One!

~Day One~
My handwriting

My receipt from Buckhead, the best little coffee shop around, this morning! I have become one of those people, you know the ones that NEVER have cash on them? I swore I would never become that person and yet here I am, having to scrounge for quarters to use the Coke machine at work..... ;-)
