very forgetful by megan

Hi y’all! Happy Saturday! So far my Saturday has consisted of this

and this

IMG_7836This would be the Pumpkin Spice Latte I had after the mentally draining/horrifying PRAXIS…more on that in a minute. But, Starbucks made my day brighter πŸ™‚

Today has been SUCH a day. It was PRAXIS day. Meaning I have been up since 5:15. I was on my schools campus by 6:51…super early for the 7:30 entry time for the test. I thought I was all set…I had my sharpened number 2 pencils (Ticonderoga, the best!), my non-graphing calculator, and my admission ticket. Sounds like I had it all, right? Wrong! I did not have ANY picture ID on me. No student ID, no license, not even a credit card with my name on it. Nothing. A picture ID is required to enter the testing room and to take the test. I did not realize this until my friends and I lined up to enter the auditorium. Y’all I was totally freaking out! I drove to school (a good 40 minutes) without a license!! God was definitely on my side though because my Daddy jumped out of bed when I called him (at 7:20 am on a Saturday) in a panic and delivered it to me in the nick of time (in stormy weather conditions). Seriously. My Dad is such a blessing πŸ™‚ I’m sure y’all must be wondering where my ID’s were, right? They were in my gym bag. I keep my ID’s and such in a cute little Vera Bradley ID pouch and always just throw that pouch in my gym bag instead of bringing my entire purse with me plus my gym bag to the gym. I am usually so good about taking the pouch out of the gym bag and placing it back into my wallet in my purse. God totally taught me a lesson today! I always thought I would never be “the girl who would be so absentminded to forget her picture ID on the day of the PRAXIS”. I mean who could possibly do that? Haha, oh it can happen! Phew…it was close though and definitely had me nervous for a minute!

Anyway, the test was difficult as I expected. But, I’m not going to stress about it. It does not do any good to stress or worry over it. I prepared as best as I could and I took it. It is in God’s control now. I feel so much better knowing that God has it under control for me, too. He always does what is best!

This has been such a rainy and gloomy day. It’s a perfect day for staying in and reading. I even tried to get started on some major school work, but my brain is seriously not capable of thinking. The PRAXIS took a lot of brain power. Oh, it was so rough! Tonight I am heading to a friends house…a very relaxing evening!

Enjoy your night!

relaxing rain by megan

Good morning, y’all!

It is such a rainy day down here today…it is not a pretty sight. But, oddly, I am not minding the rainy day today. It just seems right…kind of relaxing in a way. This week has been so fast paced for me. The rain seems to slow down the craziness. It also is very calming to my nerves in a way. Tomorrow is the PRAXIS test…bright and early at 7:30 am. I am nervous, but at the same time I am feeling good about it. My friend and I are meeting this afternoon for coffee to take a practice test. We are giving ourselves 2 hours to take it, because we will have 2 hours to take the test tomorrow morning. Hopefully the practice test helps!

I woke up this morning ready to go to the gym, but I still have not made it out of the house yet. The rain is just making me want to stay inside this morning! So, I am. I don’t mind. I have been wanting to do some Physique 57 anyway, so it all works out πŸ™‚

I have been doing some thinking about my new bedroom lately and besides having a bookshelf in my room I also would love wallpaper. I want to wallpaper one wall in my bedroom. Preferably the wall behind my desk. But, I suppose we shall see what works best. Here are some wallpaper photos I am adoring right now…

I love this wall paper. It’s a little kooky but it is so bright! It makes me smile πŸ™‚ And, I think it’s important to smile when you walk into your bedroom.

I love this! Wallpaper you can write on? So cool!!! Maybe I could put this in my future classroom? That would be so flippin’ cool. The wallpaper is actually pictures of blank frames and children can draw pictures inside the frames. Love it. That could actually be really neat in a bedroom. I mean, I would totally draw all over it! It’s called Blank Frame Wallpaper from The Land of Nod.

I love these. Especially the yellow. My bedding is black & white currently, so I think the yellow would be so fun! And, notice how the flowers are raised. You can touch them!

I love, love, love this green! It’s like a grass green. So pretty! I have a big, tall green lacquered candle holder from Pottery Barn that matches this green wallpaper. And besides loving the color of this paper I love the print, too! Oh, and the green bike with the basket…love that too!

Okay, that’s enough! I could look at wallpaper and rooms all day long πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to design my new bedroom when we move! What do y’all think of wallpaper?

I hope your day is lovely. Happy Friday, pies!

Hey y’all! I’m back πŸ™‚

I had such an amazing weekend at the beach, but it is nice to be home! There were 9 girls in my parents 2 bedroom condo…it was crazy and SO much fun!!! You would think with 9 girls there would have been drama…but not with us. We all got along so well and we each had our own little moments together. It was such a wonderful weeked! Oh, and my modified Funfetti cookies were loved by all, as well as the scones! Yippee!!!

I have an extremely busy week ahead of me…the mini vacation took away a lot of time to get school work done, but oh well! Today I am studying for my first Bio quiz tomorrow, preparing for my first visit at the preschool Beary Cherry Tree, and heading to Alpha tonight to have fun with the kids at church. The rest of the week includes a lot of work for an assignment in my HRT class and studying for the PRAXIS on Saturday morning. I am very nervous about taking this test…it determines whether or not I will be a certified teacher. Of course, if I don’t pass I can take it again…but I want to pass this Saturday! Prayers and good thoughts sent my way will be very appreciated. Thanks, friends!

Before I go absorb myself in Biology notes I want to show you my new hair! I mean it is my natural color, but it’s still new to me. It was shocking at first, but I’m glad I went back to my dark hair. I just feel more like myself πŸ™‚

Happy Tuesday!!
