Hello All!

I am so happy to announce that that the Spring One Mini-Term is finally coming to an END! I am one final away from getting those grades for my hard work this past semester. I only have one week off though between semesters, and it will be the start of Spring Two Mini-Term. The good news is that I will have a class with the professor I liked from this past one. It’s good to know what you’re getting in to and know the professor’s expectations, and Dr. Daniel was awesome! This Life-Span Development class has been a doozy though. That could be because it’s not something I do every single day of my life like teaching reading. Anyhow…I’m five classes away from putting this Master’s Degree in the books {and comprehensive exams and Praxis}. Geez….it’s like the list never ends.

On another note…my camera thinks that I’ve forgotten where it’s located. To be quite honest, I just haven’t had the energy to whip it out and take pictures of anything. This will apparently be the year of nothing in our life being documented. It has just seemed like too much trouble to get the camera, take the pictures, transfer the pictures, edit the pictures, and come up with a substantial blog post to entertain you with. It’s a sad life, I tell you!

So, did you watch the Oscars? I did. I stayed up way past my bedtime and paid for it this morning! I can definitely say that I had some favorite moments and some favorite outfits.

As for my favorite moment…it all goes to Octavia Spencer. I was pulling for her the entire time. I loved The Help, and then I learned she was from Alabama, so I felt compelled to pull for her even more. Her speech was so sweet because you could honestly see how much it surprised her and how much she appreciated the award. It wasn’t like just adding another one to the mantel for her.

In case you missed it….

Love Octavia!

As for other goings on around here….

I’ve been trying some new recipes from Pinterest. My key two reasons for picking recipes is that

a) It must be fairly easy.

b) It doesn’t need a gazillion ingredients {nor ingredients that I would have to drive to Pensacola or beyond for}.

I’ll be sharing some of those recipes {or links rather} with you in the next few days. So far, the majority have been a hit at this house, and by that I mean that my husband approves. I even fed the in-laws on one of the meals.

Anyhow…that’s all I have for now. I hope to be back in the blogging business {at least for the next week or so anyway}. I hope you had a great start to your week!

  1. Octavia Spencer is also an Auburn graduate. War Eagle to her! I loved her speech and dress too. She seems so genuine. Congrats on mini term one. I am closing out one of those too. I don't have a week off between my first and second one though. And, I am taking a full-term course. Ugh, we need a break! I hear a trip to the river or the farm calling our names.
