update and photo dump.

i've been horrible at keeping up with this lately, and i truly am sorry for that. but school is slowly sucking the life out of me. all i have been reading the past two weeks is a&p and human relations. granted it's informative, and stuff i need to know, but goodness gracious it's ridiculous! i made time to read my for fun book last night, but that didn't even start til 1 am. and only lasted like 20 mins. i'm trying so hard to find time to read anything other than my school books. at least so far i am keeping good grades in both classes, but i still have a long ways to go before the term is over.

so small group starts again this week and i am sooooo excited for it. it feels like it's been forever since i've seen the girls in my group. i definitely need to get back into it. i'm also babysitting for a friends small group, and i'm excited to see all the kids again and meet the new ones. i think this session there are like 10 or 11 kids. i will have another girl with me babysitting, so at least it shouldn't be super crazy. but i'm so ready to get back into a groove with my groups.

speaking of kiddos, this month i've been picking up a few shifts back in child watch at work. it's great to see my kids again, but nice to only be there like once a week. one of my kids saw me at the front desk one day, and told his mom i wasn't allowed to be up there and that i had to be in child watch. it made me feel good that he remembers me and still likes me. one day he even asked specifically to play with me. he's such a sweetheart and i adore him. he has gotta way more well behaved than when he was younger. i think both his brothers being in school helps. and he's so sweet with his baby sister. he claims our tunnels are her castle and she's the princess. love this sweet boy and his family.

now time for a photo dump =]

in case you don't know already...i really love my little cece. the brother let her in on a rainy day, and she just slept. 

my daisies are making a huge comeback from this super hot and dry summer. makes me super happy since they are my favorite of my flowers. all my other flowers are making a comeback too. 
my mom practicing piano before an event at my old church. i wish i was as good as her. gotta start playing again. 

flag at half mast on 9/11. 

awesome sunset on friday night when i was hanging out with grace. 

original picture of the sunset. i love sunsets

love me some fruit. strawberries, blueberries, and cool whip

so sweet that my best friends fiance said i was his favorite =]  he was a sport when we went bridesmaid dress shopping last sunday. love them both so much.

my neighbors cat leo, who cece apparently hates. 

showing my mom pandora on the ipad. she was enjoying it. 

i made croutons for the first time. this will save me lots of money and then i can make them as garlicky as i want. (i love garlic)

so at lenscrafters they have this machine that measures your pupil distance, and you look funny when they do it. but dad was all business about it while i was laughing at him. don't tell him i put this on here.
love my best friend for sending me this, after i had lost all my pics. 

oh and i decided to make some buttons for this blog. not sure if i will start sponsoring others or not, but it was a fun little project. please let me know what you think of them. (i know the first one might be nasty to some people, but it fits well)

not so sure if i like this one or not.

I like the second one better than the first and I think the third would be really cute if you jazzed it up a bit more..either change the tint or jazz up the font! I love making buttons!

yeah i think i like the last one but the best, but right now i'm not totally sure what more i will do with it. it was fun making them though.

thank you! i'm quite in love with my kitty. and when i went to get new lenses i kept looking in the mirror and laughing at myself with those things on.
