big/lil pics

before i post pics of big/lil reveal like i promised i must must MUST tell you about the most amazing cupcake i had the pleasure of sinking my teeth into today.

my supervising teacher (the teacher who let's me crash her classroom twice a week!) is a wonderful baker. and i'm not just saying that because a adore her, it's the truth people!! it was a carmel cupcake and omg if a cupcake could change your life this would be the one! 


i'm most likely going to have dreams about it tonight :)
i've also heard people rave about her strawberry cake. that's next on my must try list!

but anyway here's the link for her website. 
(yes, she can ship these yumm yumm treats right to your door)

back to big/lil

so how we did reveal this year was take a sisters car and write clues about the license plate number for the lils to decode.
ex: if there was a 9 in the license plate a hint would be
why was 6 afraid of 7? because 7, 8, ......

cute right?! 
and yes, that was one of my clues ;)

after they decoded the license plate they found that car with their big hiding in the trunk.

say hello to lil #2!


tmoss (first lil) and i wait for the new additions to arrive! 

all most of here stuff. there was more waiting in my room
she is spoiled rotten! 

i'm getting old!

the whole fam fam

well i'm gonna get back to my never ending homework and christmas music because Jessica says it's never too early for christmas music!

Much Love!

weekend trip

so i spent the weekend with my wonderful grandparents in illinois. it was a wonderful visit and much too short. i hardly ever get to spend time with my grandma just me and her. 

she treated me to the university of illinois game on saturday. SO much fun, even if they did lose 

it was really windy

notice how the stadium is 'striped'?!
all the odd sections were instructed to wear orange and the even wore blue.

clearly we were in an odd section. orange isn't really my color though

i was so sad to leave and i'm pretty certain that if i didn't have to teach the next day i wouldn't have 'missed' my flight home. 

hope yall have a wonderful weekend :)
Much Love!

luke bryan and mother/daughter tea

yeah that's right... luke bryan came to lil 'ol carrollton for the second year in a row. 

melt my heart.

how can you not love that?!

although i can't lie... i didn't know his music as well last year when he came but you better believe i'm obsessed now!

too bad he's taken. a girl can dream right?!

but let me give a little piece of advice. if going to a concert that's basically in the middle of no where (like this one at the fair grounds) make sure everyone you go with leaves at the same time and follows each other there. we had about 4 or 5 cars full of sisters and i only saw about half of them there because we all got separated, or maybe that was just me.

just sayin'

but yesterday was our mother/daughter tea that i (with the help of some sisters) have been planning. i think it was a success. mom seemed to have fun.

and i would display pictures here but mom took them on her camera and hasn't sent them to me.

but i do have to confess that i've been keeping a "lil" secret of mine.

but you'll just have to wait until wednesday to find out what it is ;)

gotta keep the mystery ya know!!
Much Love!

i should be doing homework but...

i'm so over school and schoolwork. honestly, i think it's so pointless. i learn SO much more student teaching than i will ever learn sitting in a classroom.

however today for whatever reason i decided to get up and get ready for class. why i had this urge is beyond me. but i figured i might as well share my outfit with yall since this hardly ever happens. (sorry the pics are so grainy. i finally ordered a cord to hook my camera to my computer but it's not in yet)

top- modcloth
jeans- consignment store
flats- steve madden
watch- fossil
bracelet- pandora

i promise i ironed the shirt before i wore it to class. i hate wrinkles!

last but not least i want to leave yall with some quotes that have been on my mind.


The soul that gives thanks can find comfort in everything; the soul that complains can find comfort in nothing.
~Hannah Whitall Smith

The more you practice the art
 of forgiving, the better you'll 
be at the art of living.
~Marie T. Freeman

I believe in Christ like I believe
in the sun- Not because I can 
see it, but by it I can see 
everything else.
~C.S. Lewis

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11
