Life so Simple


Well last night sitting next to a warm fire, my man and I discussed what we wanted to do this summer after we get married. 
Sitting with him I realized that life can be so simple and it can make you so happy being simple.
We decided that this summer we are going to focus on a few things to start our marriage out right. 
Here are a few we thought of...
  1. Traveling- we want to take short trips this summer and maybe go hiking or camping 
  2. Cooking! Yes lots and lots of practice cooking good food (and I here that the Kitchen is an awesome place for married people ;) 
  3. Getting organized- This summer we want to come up with a schedule for us to stick to, such as a cleaning schedule.
  4. (This one is mine) Living more thrifty- buying some clothes second hand and maybe trying to be more thrifty at the store. 
So as you can see there are some things we want to work on! 
I have to say I am super excited to get married and start my life with the more wonderful man in the world (or at least mine :)!

P.S. Any suggestions on some other things we should work on?

Snow!

We Finally have snow! I can't believe it! 
I love snow so much, driving home from work of course it was dark out but man did the snow make everything look magical! 
Here are some picts from my work, this was right before it started to come down heavier. 

I know it is hard to see but I may try to get some more tomorrow if it doesn't melt! 

I also went thrift store shopping at Goodwill and the local DAV store called RedTag. 

I got this sweater for $3 and it looks brand new! I had already had the scarf but I think it makes a cute outfit. 
$3 sweater from Goodwill!

Me sitting at work 


So I am just glad I get to use my new camera! 

I am off to see Les Miz with my man tonight!

Learning and New Years Resolutions

Oh how learning is very important in a relationship. 
Me and my future Hubby were doing our devotional together last night when I learned that I was not being patient or kind. Turns out that over the Christmas weekend that we spent together I had made him upset. 
I HAD NO IDEA I WAS DOING THIS! 
I know right! I had no idea I was making him upset and the whole weekend I was wondering what was wrong with him and why he was ignoring me. But he never told me what was wrong till last night during our devotions. 
Turns out I have a lot to learn even though we have been dating for over a year. 
I love my man and want the best for him which sometimes means putting myself aside to listen and be patient and kind. 
As women we tend to let our mouths run and never stop to listen. 
There is a quote that I love and I am not sure who said it but the quote is 
" We have two ears and one mouth, so we need to listen twice as much as we talk." 
Kind of makes sense doesn't it. 
So my goal is to listen and not talk so much. 




NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS! 


I have decided to start my new year's resolutions early so I don't have the pressure of starting them after New Years. So my goals this year are.... 
  1. Taking better care of myself: having a morning and evening routine
  2. Dressing better than just sweats. 
  3. Being thrifty: shopping at second hand stores! 

What are your New Year's Resolutions?

Merry Christmas 2012

Merry Christmas Everyone! 
Today has been an amazing day filled with joy, love and even tears (good ones!) 
Today my handsome fiance got me tons of wonderful gifts and my family blessed me with a lot also. Here are a few that are my favorite! 
My Grandma got me this wonderful Owl Scentsy!!!

A Deviled Egg carrier because I make the best deviled eggs

My baby got me this very cute stuffed owl

My future mother in law got me this antique pitcher to go in our kitchen!

Our friend Chad and Megan got us this cool abstract owl that will probably go in the living room


My handsome fiance got me this piggy bank that is the best Ever! It says Worlds Greatest Teacher and even though I am working on my teaching degree this is the first thing that I will bring into my classroom when I am officially a teacher.

and who can go wrong with getting someone Nutella! 




So overall my Christmas has been amazing! My mother and her aunt made my grandfather this amazing window with pictures of his mother and it made him cry, which I have never seen before so It was tears of joy but made me cry. I love my grandfather very much and I was so glad he came over today to share in the joy of Christmas with us. 
Merry Christmas Everyone!

Life

Life has been pretty crazy lately. Mr. Hobbs friend came back to live with him until we get married...not sure how I feel about it. Mr. Hobbs loves his job which is amazing and I am so proud of him! School is over for now and I am on break. I have been working on some crochet which I will show you after I get the camera I bought for me from my mom (if that made any sense) Mr. Hobbs and myself went and saw the Hobbit this past weekend which was Amazing! In fact we are going to see it again tonight! I am super excited about that :) I am sitting at work trying to wake up (nothing is working, not even coffee!) Tomorrow I get to go see my kiddo's for a whole day at the school I did my practicum at. I miss those little guys. On that note all I am going to say about the things that happened last Friday in CT is that I have cried multiple times over it and I am praying for those little baby's parents. I don't know what I would do if I ever lost some of my students. I can't even imagine it. I pray for safety all over this broken nation.
I am getting married in 159 days! AHHHHH we are under 160 days... I can't believe it! I am ready to be married. Last night at my parents house (I am there till I get married) I had the house to my self and I cleaned and organized the under side of the bathroom cabinets and did laundry. I have to say I enjoyed myself. I would have enjoyed it more if it was my own home but at least it is good practice. I can't wait to make dinner every night and just be with Mr. Hobbs and enjoying our adventures together. So life it pretty good right now just going along and living life. Can't wait to be married!!!

Honeymoons, Towing Trucks and T-Mobile

I haven't posted in a while but don't worry I haven't gone anywhere. 
Life has been pretty crazy since Thanksgiving so I will give you the run down. 
Last Thursday my wonderful, handsome husband to be called me and told me we booked our honeymoon. 
our HONEYMOON! 
You could not believe how excited I was! 
We will be going to Cancun for a month!!!! 
YAY! 
as you can see I am very excited. 
so I went to class after I got his phone call. 
I  came back 45 min later....
my car was MISSING! 
yes, missing
My car had been towed. 
Ugh really! I mean I had just learned that I was going to Cancun on my honeymoon. 
Turns out the creepy guy that was staring at me earlier when I was on the phone was the owners son of the building I parked at so he towed me. 
That was $104.50 wasted. 
Needless to say I won't be parking there anymore. 

So now I have told you about two of the three things in the title of this blog. 
The third is T-mobile. 
My hubby to be got a job there! 
YAY! 
Today was his first day and I am so super proud of him. 
I am even going to his apartment to make him dinner after work. 

Spaghetti with Spinach, Garlic, and Lemon.
http://weekofmenus.blogspot.com/2011/06/spaghettini-with-spinach-garlic-and.html



Looks pretty good right! I think so to :) 
Of course I found it on Pinterest! 
I hope it turns out. 

Anyway much love from Alysse :) 
aka Mrs. Hobbs to be!

Inspired!

Every day I get onto Blogger and check out all the blogs I am following
Every day I get inspired! 
It is really amazing 
Yesterday was a bit of a bad day emotionally and physically. I was just exhausted! 

I thought I would mix up today's post and do cute little letters to everyone I care about. 

Dear Future Husband (Mr. Hobbs), I love you so much! and I can't believe you have gone vegetarian on me, but you seem to feel better and have more energy which makes me happy :)  

Dear College kids, If you move out of your parents house...don't move back. 

Dear Students in my practicum class, I love you guys so much! You are so much fun and I can't wait to teach my lesson today!!! Wish me luck! 

Dear Wedding, GET HERE FASTER! Thanks excited Bride :) 

Well not much else going on with me today...I think my mom is getting me new shoes today! Yay! 

That's all for now :)

The Past

I wanted to get some stuff off my chest so why not start here. 

My past with guys was not that great. I let one guy into my heart in high school and well it did not end up well... at all. 
Anyway I have forgiven him and moved on with my life
My one mistake was letting him into my heart in the first place. He had such an affect on me that I still have dreams with him in them and I hate it so much! I let him in and I well was pretty much emotionally scarred for life. 
Last night he was in my dream with his new girlfriend (How do I know who she is? Long story...) 
The dream was about us forgiving each other and I have not had a dream like this one before. So why is it still effecting me? 
I ask myself this question a lot. 
My answer is that the devil likes to remind me of my past mistakes. He is a manipulator and he knows my weaknesses and like to play with my mind. I am so sick of letting the devil do this to me. 
I have moved on from my past mistakes and made a new life and have met the man I am going to marry but sometimes it just sucks to have the past brought up and shoved in your face. 
I am ready to forget about this guy and just move on. 

Philippians 3:13-14
13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

God has a plan

Special Days

This weekend we celebrated Mr. Hobbs birthday and we are officially under 200 days till we get married! 
For my mans birthday I got him cuff-links! You probably think that is a weird gift but a  couple of months ago I got to church and saw that he was wearing cuff-links...that he made himself...they were cool but very interesting. So this weekend I went to a vintage shop downtown and my friend pointed out a huge section of cuff-links and my mind was Blown! I thought to myself how much Mr. Hobbs would love a pair. Luckily they were really cheap but super cool looking. I found a pair that was silver with roses engraved on them and they had a spot that I could carve his initials into. So I had my dad help me put and H on each of them and lets just say He LOVED his present and last night told me that he is going to wear them on our wedding day! I was so excited! I'll try to get a picture up of them soon! 
Second we are under 200 days till the wedding!!! I am so excited and I am having the bridesmaids flowers made out of fabric! so they  will look something like this.. 
http://www.etsy.com/listing/102019443/fabric-flower-bouquet-fabric-bouquet-in


They are going to be so beautiful! I can not wait! 

I also registered for classes for this next semester..the last semester that I will be an unmarried girl!

Dinner

Last night I went to mine and Mr. Hobbs new apartment after work. I was so hungry and lately I have made a bad habit of eating out so I called and asked what I needed to get from the store. 
So I walk in and I see garlic and brown sugar cooking in a pan on the stove....
My thoughts were.." What is he cooking???" 
Turns out the wonderful amazing incredible  Mr. Hobbs went onto Pinterest (on his own!) and found a recipe on MY food board to make us for dinner.
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???? 
I sure can't but I am secretly excited that I left myself logged in on Pinterest on his computer :) hehehe

Well I have to say it was really good! 
Anyway life seems to be all good right now
Mr. Hobbs got a better job
I voted today! Yay me! 
and well other than that nothing really exciting going on 

Mrs. Hobbs to be <3

All in a Thursday

I have to say that this past Thursday was an amazing day...
This is why 
1. Mr. Hobbs got a job! Well a better one than the one he has! I would like to take a second to thank God for being our provider 
2. We got the keys to OUR apartment! Yes our apartment. I am so excited! I won't move in till we get married but I get to decorate which is going to be so much fun!!!!! 

Really those are the only two reasons last Thursday was amazing but I think they are to pretty good reasons. 
This weekend we moved all of mine and Mr. Hobbs stuff into our apartment. 
I ended up strapping a chair to the top of Mr.Hobbs's Jimmy. I will show you...

Yup that is me...strapping in a chair. I was on top of the car. 

For some reason I am always the person to climb high things or get on top of cars or climb behind dryers to unplug something because I am so small. 
I mean I can't complain that I am so small and skinny but come on people give me a break! 

Anyway we had a lot of fun and I am super happy to go over to Mr. Hobbs's apartment and think that in about 202 days we will be husband and wife! 

The future Mrs. Hobbs!

This and That

Tomorrow we will find out if the handsome Mr. Hobbs got the job we were praying for. I am nervous but I know God has a plan :) 
I found out a couple of weeks ago that I LOVE the Campfire Milkshake from Steak and Shake. 
I haven't tried the Caramel Apple one but I would bet my bottom dollar that it is delicious! 
I have to say that where I live here in the U.S. it got very cold today and very fast! 
I am excited but not prepared....I need to get my hat and gloves out a.s.a.p. 

In school I fell pretty overwhelmed at the the moment...
It is one of those times where you know all your teachers came together at once and said, "Let's give all the students a ton of homework at once!" and of course they thought it was a good/funny idea, but it is NOT! 

Anyway everything else in life is just dandy! 
I get to go to my practicum tomorrow to have our fall party! 
I am so pumped :) 


I pray that you all are in good health and are happy :)

A Wonderful Day!

I can't even explain how awesome today has been. And it's not like anything huge has happened. It has just been one of those days. 

First I got to sleep in which never happens because I literally go to work and school every day from like 8 AM to when I get home at about 10 PM every night. 

Second the Library here had a HUGE book sale and I got ten books for under $20! Let me just say that I had a silly grin on my face when I walked out of that book fair and I am seriously thinking about going back.

Third I got to see Mr. Hobbs today and have lunch with him. His interview went great and man did he look good absolutely sexy! He was just in a good mood today and it made me so happy. Man I love him so much! 

Today is just a day that makes me feel like anything is possible. 
God is good and he has blessed me so much! 

Much love everyone!

P.S here is a cute picture of some owls in love to make you smile!

A Job

Tomorrow my future husband Mr. Hobbs has a job interview. 
So First if you could take time out of your day to say a quick prayer for him it would be much appreciated.
We really need him to get a good job and this would would be really really nice...so I must pray and trust that God has a plan! 

Wedding Stuff: 
I finally got my save the dates in last Friday and I love them! I made them on Vistaprint and for 30 they cost me about $22 bucks...not to bad if you ask me. 
My goal is to get them sent out this week! 
  and to be honest I really wish I had more time to enjoy the engagement part of all this. I sometimes don't even get to think about my wedding because I am so busy with school and work. 

Final Thoughts: 
God is good, trust in him and he will direct your path :)

Cookies, Practicum and Survivor

I know you asking yourself..How does cookies, practicum and survivor go together? 
Well these are the three things that sum up my day today. 
First: Cookies, today at work they will be selling cookies, 2 for $1 
So like any girl that Loves cookies I searched in my car for spare change! 
and I found $1's worth of change for my cookies. 
Yay! 
Second...Practicum! 
Today I will get to teach my first lesson in this practicum
Let me just say I am super excited but nervous to but only a little  Okay ALOT! 
But it will go well, those kids in that classroom are AMAZING! 
and some of the girls think I look like Taylor Swift...I have no idea why they think that but it was a cute thought 
Third: Survivor! 
Every year at my church we have a Survivor youth retreat. 
and let me tell you it is a blast! 
I remember one of the first years I went to one of these it was literally a survivor weekend. The person that was suppose to do the food for the whole weekend backed out the day we were leaving so needless to say we did not have a lot of food that trip and the little we had was not enough. 
This year we are going to a youth pastors land in Kansas and I am really excited because Mr. Hobbs is going with me this year! Yay! 
I know it will be a great weekend full of fun and Jesus :) 

P.s. any of you who are reading this that saw my post on Facebook...Thanks for stopping by! On Wednesday I had 43 people check out my blog!

Engagement Pictures

I didn't really know what to talk about today But I want to get better at blogging everyday...
SOOOOOO 
I though I would share some of mine and Mr. Hobbs engagement pictures :) 
These four pictures below are of when Mr. Hobbs actually proposed and my friend got it on camera! 
Super romantic and like the pictures on Pinterest
p.s. I didn't even tell him I wanted it done this way...it was his idea! Man I am one lucky woman :) 





These pictures are ones we took last week just to add some more cute pictures! 



Anyway I am super excited to get married!!!

Learning More Every Day

All I have to say is that being engaged is hard work. There is so much to think about.School, getting a good job, how are we going to pay for that? There are so many questions and not a lot of time to answer them. Mr. Hobbs (my husband to be) is going through a lot right now. My parents want him to get a better job that has insurance (he already has a good job just no insurance). This is taking a toll on him and it is so hard for me to watch. I have to remember to encourage him every day in a way that he understands. No one tells you being engaged is hard. It's like you are getting ready to merge two lives together and there is so much to do! I think that is why people tell us to have a long engagement. Not so we have time to plan a wedding but to have time to get ready to merge two separate lives together. There is just so much to do in so little a time. Me and Mr. Hobbs only have 223 days till our lives merge together forever, and I can not wait to be with the one I love forever. I just have to remember to have fun...Life is to short to be stressed out all the time. Learn to live and love passionately

Being a Bride

Being a bride is rough business. 
Especially since I am in school. 
I never get time to go wedding stuff and it makes me really really sad :( 
I just wish I had more time in the day. 
I'm getting married in about 230 days and I can't wait but man I wish it would get here faster. 
I just can't wait to be with my man, 
I can't wait to wake up next to him forever, 
I can't wait till I wake up and see him there and the idea that I will always know he loves me and would never let me go. 
I love him

1 Year

My man and I have just celebrated our one year anniversary. 
So we have been together one year and engaged for about 3 months! 
Gosh I can't wait to be married. 
The one thing that gets annoying is that my parents think they have great ideas for us and I just wish some times they would just let me live the way I am going to live. 
But it's okay I know they do it out of love! 

My honey bunches also got fitted for his Tux yesterday! Oh gosh so exciting!!!

That's all from me right now.

I found it!

Yes Ladies and Gentleman 
I found my wedding dress! 
So I didn't have the crazy OMGOSH feeling that you see on TV. 
But I love my dress anyway and it is beautiful! 
Well we got the dress for about $500 but it was originally $2500...
so I believe I got a deal on it :) 
I still have to get it altered because this dress was discontinued so it was a size 10..
I am a size 4 
So lets just say I need to get it altered lol 
I can't describe my dress bc my Man might read this but it is beautiful and unique and one day 
(next June) I'll put up some pictures of it! 

I have also learned in the past few weeks that Forgiveness is Key! 
Especially in a new marriage or in any relationship as a matter of fact. 
Got to work on being a good fine and I would say forgiveness is a big deal.

Teachers

I have found the 3 essentials that every teacher needs and or has. 
  1. Starbucks: Out of all the classes I have had with future teachers and all the blogs I've been reading, the first thing you see is a Starbucks cup. I think teachers keep them in business.
  2. A Planner: No teacher in their right mind would not have a planner, every girl I have had a class with has one. A teacher says that an assignment is due a certain day and all of the sudden you here bags being unzipped and purses opening to get to a planner.
  3. The Cameo: Now when I first saw this on some teachers blogs I was very confused on what it was. Well the website says it can do a lot including print on shirts, cut out name plates, create fun decor and lots more!     



I have to say I can NOT wait to be a teacher and have my own room. The first thing I am buying is a Cameo for sure.

Wedding Days

295 Days
Yes thats right I can't wait! Today I'm meeting with an old friend to talk about all this wedding stuff that's going on. 
I just wish next May would get here already.In two weeks school will start..can't decide if I'm excited or overwhelmed! I think it's a little of both. I have not bought my school books yet and I need to asap. The thing about wedding planning is that there is so much to do but it's hard to decide when to do it. I mean you have flowers and decor but you can't order flowers ten months in advance and well I get to use my venues decor for free but I have no clue what they have! So much to do but when? Oh the joys of a wedding :)

298 Days

You might be asking your self, " 298 days till what?" My wedding of course!!!! 
I can't wait :) 
I still seems unreal sometimes. 
The more I think about my wedding the more things there are to do. 
Like having someone in charge of telling the wedding party to walk down the isle..yes you do need someone to do that. 
There are so many little details it's crazy! 
Anyway I am super excited and can't wait to marry the most wonderful man in the world :)

We Found It!

Ladys and Gentlemen!!! 
Venue # 3 it is! 
It's perfect and the most amazing place ever, it is like my own little secret garden! 
You could not get a more perfect place, I am going to have my dream wedding. 
I am still in shock from all of this! 






It's to perfect!!!!

Venue # 3

Today is Venue #3, venue 2 was very pretty with outdoor seating and lots of shade but it was a bit pricey and off course like any venue they kept pilling on new things to pay for..."How much would this cost??? Oh you know $200 for this and this and this..." They kept pilling on new things that we would have to pay for! Out of all the websites and magazine I read about wedding I did not realize how much it would cost for the venue. So ladys and gents save your money so you can get the perfect place for your wedding :) 

In other news...I woke up to a cloudy sky! Yay! Finally, I currently live in the Midwest and we have had no rain and triple digits temperatures. I want need it to rain. 
I hope this venue works out today but we will see

In other news....

No Wedding Wednesdays...

I just got engaged last Friday and its Wednesday but I almost feel overwhelmed already. 
My solution No Wedding Wednesdays! 
This is totally a good thing, not a bad thing. 
I am hoping that this little break in the week will give me time just to relax and not worry about wedding stuff. 
My friends told me not to jump in to quickly especially since I probably won't be getting married for ten months. But I could not help it! 
The one thing that all brides should jump onto first is the Venue. I have looked at two places and one place already had a wedding planned on the day I wanted. So if you have to jump in head first at least do it with the Venue so you have the place that you want then back off a bit and enjoy being engaged to the man of your dreams :)

I'm Getting Married!!!

Yes, that is correct I am getting married! My man proposed on July 13th 2012 :) 
I still can't believe it! In three days I have a planner made and half of my wedding almost planned. I know I am a crazy person for getting started so soon when the wedding is probably going to be ten months away. But I can't help it! I am so excited!!!! I am having trouble with colors...but that is easily fixed. I am very tired already though. My brain has not stopped since last Friday. Anyway more to come!

Zombies and Floating Trips

Oh Zombies....
Last year my wonderful Agent Blackstone got me and my family hooked on The Walking Dead. If you do not know what The Walking Dead is let me show you...
Yeah pretty gross I know. 
My aunt just recently moved down by where we live. She is not part of our every Sunday night Walking Dead party. To sum it up..she thinks we are crazy for watching this show. But we can't help it. 
It's just SO AMAZING! (but gross and kind of scary to)
Season 3 comes out in October and I can not wait till we can gather again on Sunday nights and scare each other to death :) 

Floating Trips...
Saturday me, Agent Blackstone, and many of our friends went floating. It was the best floating trip yet! I found out that we were kayaking and it scared me because I thought that it was a covered kayak where you can't see your legs and I was so scared I would tip and not get out and DIE! Okay I'm a bit dramatic but that's what was going through my head. 
We went down to the river and thank goodness the kayak was not like I pictured it. Rather a cute mini canoe type thing where my legs were free! I was so excited but still a bit nervous because I had never Kayaked before. Let me tell you I LOVED IT! I don't care to ever canoe again. I would rather kayak any day. It was an amazing day and I had so much fun with my friends. I would add a picture but my friend K has not put them up yet. More to come later :)

Cupcakes and Bass Pro

After work yesterday I was so tired and exhausted I wanted to go home and sleep but I decided to go to my friend Meg's house (I counted and I know 7 Megan's) and make cupcakes...well help her makes cupcakes. As a treat she let me take some home and man they were amazing!!!! She makes all her cupcakes from scratch and the icing to. 
The last two days I have been getting up early to go walking with a friend. Here is my schedule
5:15 Wake up
5:30 Get to park to walk
6:34 Drive Home 
6:40-6:50 NAP!!! 
7:00 Wake up and get ready...

I have decided that I will now be waking up at 5:30 and going to walk then. I have been so tired!!!! It has been good for me though to get up and wake up early. I do need to exercise more and this is the time I have to do it. 
Now for the Bass Pro part of my title. Lately me and Agent Black Stone have not had much time together and it has really sucked. I miss him a lot. So yesterday I had some time before I went over to Meg's so I met him at Bass Pro. I see him and he kisses me then we start to walk around. I stupidly ask, "where are we going?" When I know very well where we are going...to the Gun section of Bass Pro. If we step into the Bass Pro at all this is where we go. My man is really into guns and I'm okay with this because I know I will always be protected. 
Anyway I think Agent Black Stone is hiding something...he has been very secretive lately so we will see what happens in the next few weeks ;)

Agent Black Stone

Agent Black Stone is my boyfriend and we came up with this one day when we were talking about getting married (in the future)... not yet lol but Agent Black Stone became our name for my boyfriend when he was doing stuff like" getting a ring" who knows if he actually did or not (he won't tell me). So Agent Black Stone is my man. I love him very much and I wanted to always remember this memory so now it will be forever on the web :)

Little House on the Prairie

This post is all about the past and how once the land used to be wild and free. I have been reading all of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books lately and I forgot how much I love them! It reminds me of house the land used to be and how I wish with all my heart I used to live back then. Yes, it was a hard life but everything was so new and free and wild. It also makes me want to have my own home and decorate it and keep it clean. 

Gosh I miss the simple life...

School's Out for the Summer

Well almost...
I have three finals to do then school will be over for the summer. I can not wait! School has been long this year and I'm ready to enjoy  life a little without papers or projects to do. Today is my first day to work 8 hours in a long time and I can't wait for my summer pay checks. I have already started to reorganize myself and my deck at work. I have re-typed a lot of my papers at work and I'm ready for summer. 


This weekend we are going on our annual floating trip but this year we are going to the Niangua  instead of the Buffalo River. I hope it will be as fun as last year. 


Can't wait for my summer to start!

When Life Gives You Lemons...

Eat Lemon Bars! 
I love lemon bars! I just went to Harder House next door and bought me some. They are so delicious! Not much is going on in my life right now. School started this week and I am really going to like my classes because they are all about teaching so I'm going to love it. I have a meeting about Kenya tonight..if you didn't know I am totally going to Kenya this summer!!!!!!!!!!! I am stoked about that, it is going to be $3200 dollars to do thought so I have to start saving money and working as much as I can. Any way that's all I can think about to write right now...
