post signatureI got my dream job. It is only part time, however I will be working with Autistic children, implementing ABA therapy! I am very excited. I will still work at the daycare until I find something better! But finally, my foot in the door. I am very elated right now.
Anyways, in other news. I have been coughing for 2 weeks- and now it feels like a cold. I am on meds now (tylenols version of cold meds), and in bed - resting. My husband thinks that I've been battling bronchitis. I probably should go to the dr., but I will make that decision if I am not better by Monday.

Dream opportunity

post signature
I put in a few applications for my dream job this morning. These jobs entail working with and assessing students with autism. I am praying that the Lord opens a door to one of these jobs and that it'd be one that I look forward to attending everyday. This passion has been here since I was 14. I had an opportunity back a few years ago, however I didn't have reliable transportation, nor was I ready to assume the responsibility. The Lord knows how badly I want this. I feel the tides are turning. I want out of my current job very much so...I've been walking on sunshine with the hope that I'll have an opportunity. I'm very excited about what the Lord has in store.

Affordable weddings!

post signatureA friend of mine had asked me earlier to tell everyone how I was able to get away with a gorgeous, yet very inexpensive wedding. Seeing how budgets are tight and everything with "wedding" on it is quite expensive. I have compiled a list of things for you to think of when planning your wedding.
1) What are the things you really want for your wedding, but they may be pricey? and what can you do without... Mine was, I wanted princess earrings (yes, from Disney Bridal) and the headband. Bridal headbands don't come cheap. I chose to do away with a DJ. Instead I compiled all of my music on to a cd and a had a friend que it up. That saved tons of money right there.
2) Next, a dress is very expensive, but you don't need the greatest, biggest, most expensive dress out there. Look online, do some research, find the style you like best and don't let the consultants change your mind. They love to put you in a dress that is $200 over budget.I was able to find my dress on discount-the designer discontinued the brand, therefore that saved.
3) Find a venue that is lovely. You don't need to spend 10,000 dollars on a place. This can be costly and this isn't even budgeting in food. A lot of places cater but it is $$. I found a place that catered, but I chose hor de'euves, seeing as my wedding was at 2pm. If you don't want to spend a bunch of money on feeding your guest. 2pm and 7pm weddings are perfect. You can give some snacks which are fathoms cheaper than feeding a lot of people.

I was blessed to have a dear family friend make the cake, and I have tons of family that took pictures. Which I am glad because my photographer sucked. Oh! speaking of photographers.. make sure you sign a contract. My friend had one bail a month prior to her wedding, and had a tough time getting a new one, and the original photographer who was to do my wedding decided to do another event because they paid more. So this is very important.

I was able to pull off a very nice, beautiful wedding for about 4k. It's doable! I promise!

Long time, no see

post signatureWell, long time, no see. I haven't been on for several reasons. Mainly because I forgot about my username and password. lol. In the past year I got engaged, married and we have a house! It's been a crazy busy year - yet awesome. Can I say how glad I am that the wedding is over and done! Planning the wedding is difficult, although very much worth it. The best decision next to finding God was marrying my bestest friend. I wouldn't trade it for anything at all!
 Anyways - I am about to go to a party at the in-laws. I will be back several times a week if I can help it. :)

First week

Well first week at new job went exceedingly well.  I am working with toddlers this year which means one year olds. That's considerably young compared to what I am used to (2s and 3s.) I am ready for this mission. This challenge. It just means bed a bit earlier these days.
