One busy lady...

Is it really already almost mid April? Oh boy how time flies. Yet I LOVE everyday of it!

So much has happened since my past post. My most exciting news would be that I am now one of my dear girlfriend's bridesmaids. Megan asked me last Thursday to be part of her amazing celebration! We both felt I should of been part of this special day from the very beginning but had mixed feelings due to the short amount of time we had known each other. I am so blessed and honored to be part of this special event in Megan's life. Ok enough or I'm going to start crying!
Starting where I left off...
Last weekend was very relaxing and chill. Friday I taught 1st grade @ Faith Lutheran School and headed to the river for a night of fishing with my love after I got off. Saturday I wasn't feeling up to par so kinda laid around all day and hung with my parents and Brian, came home Saturday night for a special church service Sunday morning.

Brian's mom has been working the past couple months on a skit with the children ministry at church and we defiantly wanted to be there to see her work.
Week began with me shopping on Monday for pink and silver shoes! I planned on just "looking and going back Wed. with my mom to purchases them, well I didn't plan on finding such bargains! I got my pink shoes at TJ Maxx for 19.99 and my silver shoes for Megan's wedding @ DSW for 25.00! I couldn't let these deals go, so I went ahead and purchased my shoes and told my mom we would still go Wed to find her white shoes for Easter.

Tuesday Brian and I joined about 15 of my high school buds for drinks and a winning Astros game!

Trying to get a pic of everyone there at once was not easy nor was getting a pic of 2 rows of people so were missing a few here...

Shauna, Emily, Rachel,and I @ the b.u.s. before the game!

Wednesday I did some damage shopping with my mom. We went to DSW by the galleria followed by home depot, Mega Marshalls off I-10 and then a brief trip to Memorical City. Actually now that I think about it, I didnt really do much damage, I got some stuff for Megan's next shower and I got a Lucky purse, so I did good (compared to mom).
Ended the day by spending it with the bride-to-be and 3 of her maids. We went to one of Megan's final dress fittings, out to dinner, and then stuffed invitations @ Mer's house!

Tomorrow will be a longg day, we are meeting my dad's whole side of the family in Kemah for out Easter celebration. We have not seen my dad's brother and my cousins in over 4 years. Tomorrow will be a hard day seeing my Auntie Cousin Joy for the first time since she has gone down hill, Please continue to pray for her! We will end the night having a game night @ the Lenz's which I'm so excited about. Pictures to follow!!

Leave me some comments on what you think of this dress... Too loud? Too Stripy? I'm dying to have it, found it on Nordstrom's website! May be my next purchase....

Until next time...
Have a blessed Easter Weekend

Happy Thursday!

Hope everyone has had a blessed week! I don't have much to blog about but I'm craving some blog time! I'll start off with last weekend, Fri nt I enjoyed staying home alone and I just scrap booked and watched Jon and Kate plus 8 all night! Saturday morning a couple of my dear girlfriends Bailey and Kristen joined me in raising money for MDA in support of my brother! We participated in Stride and Ride for a Cure, over a couple months period we raised $800. GO TEAM DB! Brian's step mom also participated and helped in the money raising. Love her dearly! Over all MDA raised around $230,000 from that one event! Did you know it costs $80.00 to hire scientist to do 1 yes 1 minute of research?!? I enjoy raising money to help send the kids with MD to summer camp, which it cost $800 for each kid. After medical bills, most of these kids parents don't have money to send them to summer camp, so that's where our contributions come in :) After the walk on Saturday I spent the day with my mom going to a craft show and lunch then met my dear friend Megan for some shopping and a nice dinner continuing my night with drinks with Heather and Bailey, whoa what a day!Here's a few pics from Saturday!

Me, Bailey, and Kristen with our Team DB buttons MDA made for us!

Kris and Bailey with the letter's I made for them, thanking them for their support :)

The walk was @ Minute Maid Park... here's the new rest that took place of ruggles! 2 of my FAV players, I'm excited to check it out this season!

Heather, Bailey, and I @ Loggia for a few cold ones!
My weekend ended Sunday with the usual Lifetime and school work Sundays!
Week has been good, just busy with school and family situations. One of them being my Auntie Cousin Joy ( my dads cousin, so my 2nd cousin) got diagnosed with ALS this week, we knew the news wasn't going to be good but didn't know it would be this dramatic. They have given her 6-12 months to live :( so we have been coping with that as a family! My mom is going with her on Monday to a specialist to see if there is anything we can do, please say your prayers!

This weekend is just going to kinda be chill, I planned on going to Meredith's precious new jewelry line show but the boyfriend is dying to go to the river and I have been putting it off for weeks so I caved and said we could go this weekend but will be back Sat night to go bowling with some friends followed with a special church service on Sunday!

Looking forward to next week, going to the Astros 2nd game Tuesday night with a big group of friends I graduated with and enjoying the weekend celebrating Easter!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Sorry if this blog was kinda lame and just about what I've been doing and going to do! ha!
