1.  If you didn’t hear- I GOT A JOB! I’ll be working in a town close by called Hillsboro (it’s halfway between here & Dallas) . I got my contract in the mail on Wednesday when I got home from observing at the school and couldn’t be more excited!

2. I’m hosting a THIRTY-ONE party on Sunday, June 2nd at 4:30 pm! I would LOVE if any of you Texas bloggers can come. Just email me if you’d like to come and I’ll give you the address! If you can’t come- DON’T WORRY! You can order through my party online!

If you’d like to order through my party virtually– you can order online! Just click the picture!

2. As promised, I gave y’all the recipe to my Cilantro Jalapeno Chimichurri Steak. I may or may not have made it twice in 7 days. Oops. It seriously makes my mouth drool just thinking about it. I paired it with some yellow squash. It was delish.

How to make mouthwatering cilantro jalapeno chimichurri and steak in about 20 minutes!

3.  I’m re-addicted to Gossip Girl! I started it over on Netflix last week and I’m almost done with Season 2. I haven’t seen any past that (shortly after I moved to Waco almost 5 years ago I pretty much stopped watching all my normal shows to spend time with Mathew), so I’m pretty excited to see what happens!

4. I got to hang out with my friend Hollie this week. She had an interview at the school I just got a job at and I helped her plan her lesson. I always love spending time with her- just wish we were able to hang out more! I also spent time with Austin and got some Chuy’s margs with her on Tuesday. Sadly, our time was cut short because of a freak storm, but it was good to see her nonetheless.


1. Our apartment is a mess this week. I’ve been working every day this week with either working at the church, subbing, or at my new school. I really need to get it together!

2. My wedding ring is giving me a little rash on my finger. I’m allergic to nickel that is in white gold, and every couple of months my finger gets itchy. Time to get my ring replated! Thing is…when will I have time?!

Now it’s YOUR turn to link up for Happies and Crappies!

  3. Congrats on getting a job. That is awesome and I knew you would get one!!! I’m allergic to nickle too and can’t wear cheap earrings or my ears will kill. So annoying!

  4. For some reason I didn’t realize white gold has nickel in it. My high school class ring was white gold and I wore it all the time…I hope that means I’m not allergic because I really prefer white gold! Hooray for getting a job!!!

  9. Hey , I was very chubby and was looking to drop a few more lbs.

    I was just looking into the answers to my question; how many extra calories do fat burners burn.

    Moreover even though this was not the precise area I started looking for,
    I received a lot out of what was written here. There have to be some viable connection to training/weight loss programs combo in terms of fat loss because each weight loss drug or pill requires that mixture for achievement.

    I’ve struggled with the issue for a long time and find that when I’m inactive I gain weight and if I work out every day I lose
    fat and get stronger. It’s a shame that working out is tireing not stimulating to me however it’s the fee we pay for wellbeing.
