Weekend Plans

I'm about to hit the road...I have a super fun weekend ahead of me!

My first stop is Macon for the 81st Georgia FFA Convention! FFA is a youth organization that teaches students leadership skiils and career skills relating to agriscience. I taught agriculture last year and am going back into the classroom again (Lord willing) in the fall. I'm so excited to see my college friends from across the state that I don't get to see as much anymore! Everytime I go to convention I still feel as excited as I did the first time I went in 9th grade!

Friday afternoon after I judge a speaking event at convention I'm hopping back in the silver bullet and treking to the ATL to catch a flight to spend the weekend with Mr. Fix-It in Baltimore! We're going to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, the Rocky steps, Love Park and of course we've gotta have cheesesteak! I'm so excited and can't wait to post pics!

Have a fun weekend everybody!

I think my interview today went well. I did have one answer that I wish I could take back but overall I felt like I represented myself well. I really liked the principal and think he would be a great person to work for. They are suppossed to narrow the field to two candidates and then those two candidates will be interviewed a second time. I'm a little concerned about the possibility of a second interview. They were pretty thorough in this one and I just can't imagine what else they want to know!

I was tagged with an award by Miss Perfectly Pleasant!

She's a newbie...go check out her blog, you won't be disappointed!

The goals of this award are:

1)As a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging.

2)To seek the reasons why we all love blogging.

3)Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it.

4)Don't forget to mention the person who gives you the award.

6)Tag and distribute the award to as many people as you like.

7)Don't forget to notify the award receivers and put their links in your post.

I've been blogging hit or miss for a while...I really enjoy it because it gives me a space to get my thoughts out and I can get advice from people who are totally removed from my situations. Plus, everyone is just so darn cute and friendly :)

Coming out of hibernation

So, I took an unexpected leave from blogging. School was crazy and I just needed to focus. But I'm back with good news...I have a job interview today! It's with a school that is literally 5 mins from my house. It's in the same system I taught last year but is a high school interview is at 1:30 - I'd appreciate the prayers! Hopefully I will return later today with good news!

Jelly Legs

I. Can't. Move.

Since the weather has been so glorious over the past few days - 70 degrees in february, I'll take it!- I have decided to get outside and get active. And by get active I mean jog two miles. Did I mention I haven't really jogged or exercised since probably October? Unless running to the kitchen for another piece of cake counts...

I have however slept quite soundly the past few nights.

We belong in the Zoo!

What a wonderful weekend! Mr. Fix-It was home this weekend! Friday night we had dinner with his parents and then went shopping and out for drinks. Saturday morning Mr. Fix-It endeared himself to me...we went to the zoo! I have lived my whole life no more than 2 hrs from the ATL and had never been to Zoo Atlanta. The weather was BEAUTIFUL and it was a great day to be outside. The only battery in my camera was dead so no pics :( But we got to see the new baby pandas and fun critters like meerkats, flamingos, and oranguntans, which might have just been my favorite. They came up to the window and were watching the visitors watching them :) The lion was very vocal that day and ran a close second as my fave!

After we left the zoo we went to the cyclorama, which depicts the Battle of Atlanta. Mr. Fix-It had never been which I found hard to believe because he is a HUGE civil war buff.

That afternoon we met my BFF and took her sweet pup Izzy to the park for awhile and then went to dinner. Such a fun day!

Sunday we went to church and just chilled with his family. I had gone to church with my parents for the past 2 weekends so it was good to get back to our church and worship together. All in all a great, although too short, weekend!
