Quick update!

Just a quick update with some photos! Last week we went to the Foo Fighters concert. It was Ryan's birthday present that had to come extremely late due to a postponed concert. We met up with some friends and had dinner before the concert which was fun! There are no pictures from the concert since you weren't supposed to take them in and I didn't want to risk it getting confiscated!
They are also newly married!

Silly boys!
I got a ride back to the car cause my toe hurt!
Fishing with some friends and no luck!
Chilling on the bench cause we were getting hungry!
Enjoying my new fishing pole even though it didn't catch anything!! Ha
We also painted the house!!
Here is the almost finished product! We still have touchups and the porch before its complete!
Anyway I have another busy week ahead! Today I helped Stacia with her classroom! It was great fun seeing great teachers and encouragers from my student teaching experience and i walked away with some free stuff for my own classroom!
Anyway, I'm definitely missing my love. He is in Denver for the week at the International Horn Symposium! Miss you!
Hope everyone has a great & productive week! God bless!

Busy Summer

First I must start by telling you about Ryan's poor finger! He got bit by who knows what! And its infected and its just awful. He is in a lot of pain and its swollen like I have never seen before! It is starting to show some improvement but please pray for the poor guy that his finger will soon be healed!
In other news there has been tons of work going on around here. We planted flower beds out front. I'm not sure why the picture below is turned but you get the idea. We have also retiled our half bath, fixed a few clogged drains, cut down lots of branches (picture below) and the list goes on. This weekend hopefully we will get the outside painted. We have started on the trim and its a huge improvement already!

I have also found time to make a cute little door decoration!

Also my mom celebrated her birthday so we took her to The Elephant Bar! It was very delightful!
Abby & I enjoyed the animals!

And I think my mom enjoyed her birthday card & present! A newly ordered iPhone is on its way! This is the drawing my sister put in the card!
I guess thats all for now! I'm hoping I will be getting some calls for interviews soon! But I'm just praying for God's will and I know he will work it all out!

To everything there is a season,a time for every purpose under the sun.A time to be born and a time to die;a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;a time to kill and a time to heal ...a time to weep and a time to laugh;a time to mourn and a time to dance ...a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;a time to lose and a time to seek;a time to rend and a time to sew;a time to keep silent and a time to speak;a time to love and a time to hate;a time for war and a time for peace.
ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Fun in July!

July has been a busy month so far! Its been filled with job hunting, trying to spend time with a busy husband, working on the house, and some of the below. Here are a few pictures to recap the beginning of July!
Of course we celebrated the fourth of July with fireworks,

golf and other fun games,
shooting the potato gun,
and of course swimming!!
Then the family got to see our favorite pitcher play in OKC!
Here he is! And we got to sit directly behind home plate! Great seats to see him pitch! I also got interviewed for the Daily Oklahoman! Read the article here:
Abby grabbed life by the horns...
and we got to chat with the star for a while!
We celebrated my birthday! With shopping, eating out, family, and THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY! YUM!
There were Hatchs, Loderhoses, and Robinsons there to celebrate!

And of course my wonderful husband made the day perfect!
Not to mention I'm totally excited about all the cool gifts! Gift cards, clothes, jewelry, money, a fishing pole, and a phone on its way!
Thanks to my friends and family for a GREAT birthday!
Here is to a great 22nd year of life!
Tomorrow the family is coming up to work on the house! We have a long list of to do's:
Plumbing, tile, painting, carpet cleaning, garbage disposal repair,countertop shopping, and of course cooking out on Ryan's new grill will be in there somewhere!
