on a Friday in the fall...

I don't know about you, but it has been a long week for us--complete with a sick baby! Thankfully she is better and we are quickly approaching the weekend! I am so looking forward to a weekend that isn't quite a busy as the last few. We are going to a local corn maze this evening with some friends and tomorrow holds nothing other than watching the Herd play ball at 3:15. We might hit up a local fall festival in town, but that's it. N O P L A N S! I don't really know what to do with myself :) 

Today I'm wrapping up another week at school with spelling tests and math games. I'm loving teaching right now, but it is exhausting. Definitely ready for the little break this weekend holds.

So without further ado, let's start the weekend off right with (drum roll please)

1.  My first memory is     hard to determine. I have many from videos that I have seen so it is hard to distinguish which ones are truly memories and which ones I know about from videos. One of my first memories (if you can call it that) is remembering the hall closet at our old house--its where Mom kept the orange Triaminic. I also remember helping pack little glass objects in newspaper when we were getting ready to move--I was 4 .

2.  My first love was   the hubs. HONESTLY! I had other boyfriends, but I never wanted to take them to church because I didn't want Hubs to know any other boy existed...even though he didn't know I existed. One day I will have to do a series and share all the lovely details, but basically we met when I was 13 and I prayed for 5 years that he would be my husband--an now he is!

3.  My very first favorite color was    green,  I'm guessing. For as long as I can remember my favorite colors has been green--probably because I was raised a Marshall Fan--just can't get away from the green.

4. The first time I really felt like a "grown-up" was when    I traveled by myself for the first time to visit the hubs in Chi-town when we were just dating. Took a flight all by myself to the romantic city of Chicago and met my man--definitely felt like I was more than 18 :)

5. The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is   turn off the alarm--not always the smartest move.

6. The first CD (cassette tape, record, etc...) I ever bought was    (other than Patch the Pirate or some children's songs) SPICE GIRL--Oh yeah! I got the cassette tape for my birthday one year. Obviously it was memorable. 

7.  My first car was  a 1994 light blue Honda Accord--perfect! It wasn't all that beautiful, but it was a cute little car that got me around during college and the first couple years of marriage. Honestly, there are days when I miss  my little blue car--the simplicity of it mainly. Not sure where it is now, but since its a Honda I'm sure its on the road somewhere.

An update and Friday Blanks

You may be wondering where I've been lately...well I've been teaching! 
My student teaching started 4 weeks ago and has basically consumed my life. No worries though! I am trying to get back into doing at least one post a week, and after this semester is over--no more school for me! I will graduate in December and from there I will have a lot more time for blogging--I hope!

Happy Friday, girls!

1.  Right now the weather where I live is     fall-like and absolutely perfect! This week has been a little too warm for my liking, but the weekend is promising "Sunny and highs in the mid 70's". I love fall .

2.  The best piece of advice I've been given is   be open and intentional in your relationships. Though sometimes it is hard to reveal your true self, it will only deepen relationship and free you from your past  .

3.  My most favorite person in all the world is    the hubs! He really is amazing, though many times I don't give him the credit he deserves. He serves our family in so many ways! And of course Little E is next in line.

4. If I were to have a "mission statement" for my life, it would be    Our family vision comes from 1 Cor. 9:23 where Paul says, "I do all things for the sake of the gospel...". Our mission is that everything we do will be for the sake of the gospel--spreading God's fame and glory.

5. My most favorite item in my closet is  actually missing! I can't find this adorable sweater I bought in June. It is a cardigan (if you know know I LOVE cardis) and now I can't find it! Oh the joys of moving.
6. The best cure for a bad day is   different from day to day. Some days it might be a pumpkin latte, other days maybe a nice long walk or jog, and other times I just want a relaxing night at home with my fam.

7.  Today is   FRIDAY and I'm so thankful! It has been a busy week!  .
