It's official!

It's official....I got a job!! I had an appointment with the Human Resource Personnel this morning and he officially offered me a 3rd grade position at Rosehill Elementary!! I am SOO excited! YEAH!

This week has been pretty crazy. I had to transfer to an Alternative Certification program here in Tomball and take care of some other paperwork. Everythings falling into place and I start my PPR classes this Tuesday. They are every Tuesday and Thursday through the month of June.

The house has also been coming together slowly. Still no decorations but there is organization. We want to redo the kitchen soon so I'm excited about that.

Scott and his family have been busy planning the funeral for his Grandpa. The viewing is Sunday evening and the funeral is Monday morning.

Love and miss you all!

Scott's Grandpa Friedrichs went to heaven early this morning. Please pray for him, his grandmother and their family during this tough time. Scott's grandpa was a Pastor and loved by so many. He will be greatly missed.

Please Pray

Please pray for Scott's Grandpa Friedrichs. He has an untreatable cancer and has been suffering much pain since March. His body is slowly shutting down and their family would appreciate all the prayer he can get.

I received my unofficial score report today and it said I PASSED my content exam for teaching!!!! I was so nervous because when I took the test yesterday I really thought I didn't do well. It was tricky and SO long. BUT I got the news today that I PASSED! YAHOOOOO!

Now I have a better chance of getting a job and basically i'm a certified teacher! I have another exam (PPR) but I can be hired and will take that at the end of the summer.

Tuesday I had a photoshoot with Roxi. Here's some of the pics!

Before my exam yesterday, my mom had these beautiful flowers delivered. I LOVE flowers and these are really pretty! Thanks Mom & Dad :)

We're heading to Kerrville for the weekend. Scott will be here this evening to pick me up and then we're off to Kerrville! YEAH for sun ,fun and good times! When we come back Monday, we'll get the remaining things I have left in Austin and then I will have officially moved to Tomball!

Hope everyone has a wonderful 3-day weekend!

After getting a few things done around our house last weekend, we headed to Austin for the night to celebrate beautiful Sarah's birthday. But before we left, Little Nanny and Mom stopped by the house to check it out and bring a few things from Nada. Of course, Little Nanny had to take a few photos so she got one of us with our new house. Here's a few from the weekend.

Work Day

So, between traveling back and forth from Tomball and Austin, subbing a few days and studying for a very important test, I finally get to do some work at my house today! Today I will clean, unpack and do the necessaries around here. Scott will try to get off at noon so we can do some painting and other stuff. I'll let you know how it goes!

Also, maybe say a little prayer next week for me! I have my teaching certification test and I'm very nervous about it. Actually I'm stressing about it big times.

RHS Reunion

We had a high school reunion last weekend and it turned out really nice. It was classes of '01,'02 & '03. We were expecting way more people but it ended up being really small. We had an awesome time and it was nice getting together and talking about old times. I had a wonderful time and a headache the next day to prove it!

Thanks to everyone who came out!


Well, I've basically moved all my stuff to Tomball! There is so much to do but I'm moved in. I've still got a few things in Austin but I'll be back and forth for two weeks because I've got to finish my certification classes. I'll be happy when the month is over and I can actually enjoy my new house! I don't have alot of furniture yet but that's okay...I will eventually get it. I have our old couches right now until I pick some out that I like. Hopefully once I'm settled in and have decorated, I will post more pics.

Honey enjoying the casa!

There's alot of work ahead but I can't wait!

Break Time

Okay, well I'm down four nails already just packing things into boxes. I have not even attempted to move them out of the house yet so basically by the end of the process I'll have no nails left :(

I found this picture while I was on myspace from a friends wedding. Check out Scott's Memaw in the background. This is her classic party face!

I'm procrastinating right now and SHOULD be packing but I'm not. SO instead, I wanted to post these pictures from Jenna's birthday a couple of weeks ago.

I am not a big 80's fan or so I thought. I guess I'm just not a fan of 80s movies (Sixteen Candles etc..). On Jenna's birthday we went to a bar where a 80's cover band performed. They were AWESOME! It was sooo fun and the music was great. The guys were in full costume, permed hair and all. We had a lovely time and the drummer gave me one of his drum sticks he was using! I think he liked my dancing...

Young or old, if you ever get a chance to see LC ROCKS, you'll love it!!!

Some pictures from the night

Okay, back to packing....................

I was downloading pictures the other day and came across this great pic of Scott and Brent. They have been friends forever and have the funniest friendship. They talk on the phone several times a day and their relationship reminds me of old ladies. They call and chit chat about the latest gossip or the days events and their conservations usually last a VERY long time.
This picture was taken in April at Brent's sister's wedding. Just thought it was a good picture!

Garage Sale Mania

We had a garage sale today in Austin and did pretty darn well! Me, Jenna and Kristin along with some other peeps collaborated a whopping $750 today! I think it was pretty successful overall! Garage sales are fun and usually quite profitable. We had lots of clothes, furniture and accessories. People buy the most interesting things.

And for those of you who are dying to know, we also sold many panties!

Like I said, people buy anything... ;)

PS- Even if it's cold outside in May, be sure to not forget the sunscreen...especially on the face :(

12018 Oakner Drive

I was not able to be with Scott when he signed his papers for the house so his mom took pics for me. Of course, he was not happy about the camera but she still got a few ;)

I'm Moving to Tomball!

I happy/sad to say that I am moving to Tomball Texas! It's bittersweet because I have lived in Ausitn/San Marcos for the past 6 years. I have been close to basically ALL my friends and we get together alot.

Scott accepted a job in Houston and since graduating has moved into his parent's house and starting working for Peltier Brother Construction. Knowing that we would eventually move back closer to family, I have decided to move to Tomball to be with him.

This is also SO hard because for the past 6 years, I have been living with my cousin who is basically my sister. I knew the time would eventually come when we would have go our separate ways but I didn't think it would be this soon! I'll miss you Jenna!

I have been interviewing for teaching jobs in Tomball and hopefully I will secure a job soon. I really like the district and am so excited to begin my teaching career in Tomball!

The best part yet is that yesterday Scott closed on a house in Tomball! He is my landlord and I will be renting the house from him! It will eventually be "our" house but for now Scott will live with his parents and I will get to live in the new house!

It's a cute, little, basic 2 bedroom, 2 bath house. It will be just fine for me and I can't wait to get all my stuff there. It's in an older neighborhood and right next to an elementary school. :)

Pictures will come soon!! Stay tunned for updates!
