Wrapping up the Weekend!

Weekend's seem to come and go, with all the craziness in the week, and always looking forward to the weekend. I love them because not only do I get to have a couple day's of sleep with no alarm, but just the quality time, and the days of not being rushed are well worth waiting for. So here is a recap of my weekend! :)

  • Friday- So Friday's are awesome day's, cause I don't have school, but going into work I'm looking forward to spending the day with the kiddos at the preschool. Kid's on Friday's though are CRAZY! I believe they sense the weekend coming, and use all the extra energy to bounce off the walls. After the long day at work, I love coming home to my future husband, and catching up with some quality time. 

  • Saturday- Best Sleep Day's ever! i love sleeping in on Saturday's to catch up on some long lost beauty sleep. lol. What I love most though, is being able to have Girl's Day as i call it. Well that's exactly what I did, and it was wonderful to have the opportunity to make a new friend! 

  • Sunday- My future husband and I got the opportunity to attend WKEE 100 Bridal Expo, In Huntington, Wv Big Sandy Superstore Arena. With over several different vendor booths, we walked through huge aisle way's of different options for the Big Day. We got to sample different foods from different caterers, enter for door prizes, and just experience the whole excitement for our big day! We ended up staying for over an hour, then on the way back home made a drive to end our little date day. 

This was my weekend in a nutshell, Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! and here is to another fabulous week!

Beginning's of a Teacher.

So about 6 months ago, I was given a awesome, opportunity, I was able to land a Teacher Assistant position at a local Preschool in my hometown. I was previously excited about just applying, due to the fact that I'm currently enrolled at Ohio University Southern in pursuit of a Bachelor's degree for Early Childhood Education. My overall passion is to be a K-3 grade Teacher. After receiving the job, I quickly learned that there was more to this job, than a piece of paper giving me details of what job description. No where, did i find the Bold print stating, Caretaker? 

I know, this sounds completely silly, but the first few months were a real eye opener, and full on learning experience. I have some few funny stories, that make looking back at it, a real treat, But ultimately I genuinely love and adore every single one of these kids.  I remember my first day, actually in the classroom, one of the boys in the 4 & 5 year old room, came up to me as I was conversing with the class, and Stated, "Your Weird." I still laugh at this because, to them yes I was new, and I was weird, trying to find my voice as a teacher. Now, 6 months later and the boy loves me to death, and Says, "MS. Bekah I want to Marry you!" and "Your Cute!" It warms my heart, that coming from a boy who was stand offish, and very uneasy with me, wants to be around me 24/7 and always wants to go where i go. I found,that not only am I teacher, or a caretaker, that I'm overall that light, to drive that gives each child that passion to become who they want to be, and to also Tell them that nothing can stand in there way for who they are. 

I know i still have 2 more years til i obtain my degree, and that i have a whole lot to learn, but I'll continue to share my daily experiences, and what I learn everyday. My goal is to be an impact on every child's life that i encounter along the way. I know there are going to be days of overwhelming, hair pulling, aggravating moments, but i wouldn't trade it for the world.

New Year! New beginnings.

Happy New Year Everyone!! 

HI Everybody! I have been so busy with life, That i haven't blogged in forever, So lets Catch up! 

Start of a new year is always refreshing to me. It's like that saying "Out with the old in with the New!" Every year is always filled with exciting new things, but then of course you're going to have life's unending curve balls, But i always try to out way the bad with the Good. Ringing in the new Year is always fun, especially with you're future husband by you're side. However, this year was even more exciting, cause we have officially entered our wedding year. We couldn't be happier. I know this is a short post, but there will be more post to come,  So in honor of our wedding year, below I've posted a few of our engagement photo. :)

Five for Friday!

Starting out I've seen Five for Friday posts, and this is the first week that I've wanted to try it out. It's an opportunity to share my five favorite things each Friday. I hope it's as well worth it as I plan on it being.


My abundant overflow of nail polish. Every girl has there obsessions, and sometimes we have them on max extremities. Nail Polish is mine, I can never have enough. Different colors for different moods. This was taken a month ago, so I'm sure I have more now. But I always enjoy doing my own nails, and I even do both my mother and my mother in laws as well. A Fresh coat of Nail polish does a Gal good! (:  


God's Beauty! I never get tired of seeing a wonderful Sunset! It's such a sweet reminder that God created this world, and he did so perfectly. I love the beauty's of the earth, and seeing all of God's creations. It soothes the soul to just see these beauties. Next time you find you're self, Troubled, Stressed, Upset, or just In one of those funky moods, Take some time to go on the front porch, a drive, or wherever outside to inhale the beautiful creation of God, It will sure be such a relaxing time to make you feel at ease again. 


My photogenic Kitten! Meet Salem! he is my Black, four legged pal, who is sweet and loving, but also very hyper and always loves to play no matter what the clock says! I'm an animal lover, but this handsome fellow has bonded with me ever since we got him! and always knows, when I curl up on the couch with a blanket, he has to be in the center of it all! I know not everyone is Cat lover's but even if you're not, How can you deny this cute pic?!!! 


Cookies and Cream Ice cream, My weakness in a cup! Seriously, one of my favorite things about summer is that, I'm always in the mood for a cup of Ice cream. Crisp's is one my favorite dairy places to pick up such a delicious splurge. I'm the girl who loves Vanilla, but you throw cookies in there, I give a whole new meaning to the character of Cookie Monster. (: 


   Last but not least, A good book, a cup of Orange Juice, and Coffee mugs!. All three count as my favs. It's part of my morning regimen. Usually I would have a nice cup of joe in the mug, but due to warmer weather, I'm convicted to drink hot beverages, in warmer weather. Now I will say I'm always up for Ice Coffee, but Orange juice always is a good beverage in the morning. I also love to read a great book while I'm starting to wake up. I have a stack of books to read over the summer, that were loaned to me through my friend. and Ive read two so far! and both I've enjoyed. (: 

Well there ya have it! My Five Friday post! Hope everyone has a Fabulous Weekend!

Sick and Stuck In :(


Over the weekend, My Fiance' were able to do our first mini Vacation with his parents! and it happened that we were going on our 2 year Engagement Anniversary! We went to Dayton, OH, and camped, but on the way up I developed a minor soar throat. Thinking nothing of this, I just wanted to enjoy the getaway for the weekend. We got to the campground on Thursday evening, after eating a delicious meal at Don Pablos. (By far the best Mexican Restaurant Ever!!!) I felt pretty good, and enjoyed the evening just chit chatting. However, on Friday was a whole different story, to make a long story short, I got worse and worse each day, even had to make a pit stop at my papaws in Lexington cause I just could not travel as much being this sick.  Traveling and sickness do not go well together at all! Finally Sunday afternoon feeling worse than ever, I just wanted to get home, and as soon as we got back into town, went straight to Urgent Care and was told I had developed Pneumonia Crazy how fast I developed it! lucky I have such a wonderful man that drove and took care of me!

Between the 4 hour of Breathing Treatments, and 3 other Medications, I'm stuck on the couch, with my laptop, tablet, and Catching up on some TV shows. Luckily, my Fiance' will drop by and visit which I'm glad to see him, just can't wait to get back on my feet! Even though I'm feeling so much better, just staying in finishing the meds, and hope to be able to get out  for Church on Sunday!

Long time no....Post!

Sorry for the 3 months of no posts, Busy Busy. These past 3 months. So here is for me to catching you guys up on what's happened in my life. 

So since the last post, I was in the middle of working on Wedding Prep, we are still planning our wedding, and now getting things made up. The last post I was in the middle of spring semester for 2014, it started in January and I finished the semester in the beginning of May. I Finished with a 3.0 and all B's. I was thinking of going during the summer, but took it off, due to our Family Vacation in July to TN!  and for a possible Job that I'm trying to get. The Job is for a Teaching Assistant at my Fiance's Grandparents Church, and It's what I'm going to school for. I have an Interview Today!! Wish me Luck! and I'll let you know what Happens! 

Also I had my 21'st Birthday Celebration, It was a Fantastic Birthday, and especially when we got all confused cause Nick My Fiance'. was trying to throw me a Surprise birthday, but it turned into all of us getting confused and my Friends, and I now laugh at it!!! Anyway, I had the best Birthday, with my man, and my friends, Here is some of the pics to recap it! 

I wasn't the only Birthday person, My Mom and my Fiance' celebrated there Birthday's. My Fiance' was first on May 2nd. He turned 23. and my Mom had her's on the 13. Birthday's are always a blessing. weather it's mine I'm celebrating, or participating, in my friend's or Family Birthday! Apparently, my Fiance's pics for his Birthday are not uploading so I'll have a separate post later on.. But here is my mom's pics.  

So this has been the past 3 months. in a simple nutshell. I will be posting more regularly, now that I'm on Summer break, and Who knows there may be Surprises around every corner. 

Hope Everyone Enjoys you're Summer!!!

Wedding Preporation

Sorry for the lack of posting, Life gets very busy and I've been really focused in my school work. If you don't know me, it takes a lot for me too focus. So lately, with everything else going on, Nick-my wonderful, charming, Fiance'.- and myself have decided to make our wedding date officially set for June 13th, 2015!!! Which is now a little over a year, but I've started and decided that we want to make this a less costly as possible. Seriously have you seen budget's now a days, it's completely ridiculous. So I've been on a mission to make everything and become like a DIY Bride! Which is actually really fun, and everything will have a personal touch to it. So with all this said, These pictures are what I've started working on. 

This project was less than $7.00! I got this photo Frame from Walmart in the Valentines day section, they had them on sale, and I painted them to match our colors, Plum and Tangerine. I painted the frames, Which actually, my fiance' painted the orange one! Then i bought the small Iridescent glitter, which i sprinkled on the frames, but first, I sprayed some crafting glue. Then i bought, some silver ribbon, and added it to the frame to hang on the aisle pew! All we need to do is add pictures, which I'll post later on when fully completed. but here is what the finishing project looks like~~

And there we have it, A simple project that will add a personal touch to you're wedding! 
I'm getting really excited as we get closer, and I have so many more projects too do, looks like I need to invest in a Hot Glue Gun! 
Sorry, but this is just a short post, Tell me what you think of this? or any suggestions to make better! but I'm really loving the turn out, If you think there is too much Glitter, well this is nothing compared too what's going to be at the Wedding! lol
