Song: "I'm Only Me When I'm With You" by Taylor Swift
Mood: Nostalgic

So today I drove up to Burt's to meet Steve for lunch. It's one of my most favorite things to do when I'm tracked out. It's a treat to get to see Steve during the day and there's something so sexy about him when he's at work. When we first started dating, he'd call me from work and he had a "work voice" that would drive me crazy. He still has it... I don't know how to describe it other than it's a different tone that he uses when he's working. Anyway, I love seeing him for lunch because he has his work face on and with it comes the work voice. :)

After lunch I came home and for whatever reason, I decided to get out my old high school yearbooks and look through them. It was so weird. It's been fourteen years since I graduated, but as soon as I started going through the books, I remembered faces and names. I should restate that; I remembered names and faces of people that I was friends with. There are still a whole lot of people that I went to school with that I have no idea who they are. It's to be expeceted when you graduate with more than 700 people.

Anyway, it was so funny to look back and pictures and even more fun to read the yearbook articles that I had written (I was on the yearbook staff my senior year). I didn't always have the best grammar!! HAHAHA!! It's funny to see how much I've changed.

I recently reconnected with a few friends from high school on facebook. It's funny to see them now and how they really haven't changed a whole lot since high school. It just left me thinking, "Where did the last 14 years go??"

Anyway-- until next time...

(Jen and Me-- track out day)

Song: "I'm Movin On" by Rascal Flatts
Mood: Okay

I know it's been quite a while since my last post. There's been a lot going on and I just haven't found the time to blog.

First things first, I started the 2008-2009 school year on July 7th. I spent the whole week between the 07-08 year and the 08-09 year doing back to school stuff at work. As much as I worked, I still wasn't able to get everything done that I wanted/needed to get done.

Steve and I went to the Brad Paisley concert July 19th and had a great time. Burt's had tickets for their box seats and offered them and Steve jumped right on it! We were super close and had an excellent time as VIPs.

I am tracked out (whooo hoooo)! Steve and I made it to our 2nd anniversary. We celebrated by going out to dinner. Sadly, we didn't even watch our wedding DVD. It was only my 2nd day of teaching and I came home exhausted. We talked about doing something over my track out (which is now) but I don't know if we'll actually do anything. I'm just thankful to have Steve in my life and to come home to him each day.

I'm not feeling very chatty right now... (can you tell) so I am going to sign off for now. I will say that I did get to present two sessions to the teachers at my school for our staff development days. I was really honored to be asked to present and to know that I've only been there a year and I am respected. It's definitely a good feeling!

More on that later...
Until next time...
