Blog Challenge: Day 2

A Picture That Makes You Happy

It was a spur of the moment picture, taken at a Denny's after we got rained on. It's natural, not posed, and I love it.

Favorite Movies
American Beauty
The Wizard of OZ
Cruel Intentions
Sex and the City
The House Bunny
The Ugly Truth
Moulin Rouge
The Nightmare Before Christmas

A Place You've Travelled To

I haven't been many places, but my favorite was probably Hollywood. There's so much entertainment history there, I was in a daze. It's also so super fast pace, something I am not used to at all.

Pictures of Your Friends
I don't consider myself to have a lot of close, close friends. Most of the people I was close to have moved off or have a totally different life than I do.However, I have 2 people I talk to, hang out with, etc. that I would consider my best friends.

Here's Kelsey. I actually met her through my youtube channel and personally got to meet her in October. It feels like I've known her for years and just wish that she was closer.

Trisha and I have been friends for a few years. Our busy schedules don't allow for us to see each other as much as we would like, but we tak as much as we can.

School is killing me, so bear with me.

I apologize for missing a post yesterday, but I literally typed papers from the time I got off work until I went to bed. I still have 5 more to type, and some manipulatives to get done before 12 today. I'm working myself to pure exhaustion that's for sure!

Just bear with me, it should die down in the next few days :)

Blog Challenge: Day 1

Since I haven't been able to do my yotube videos like I would like to, I've decided to start a 30 day blog challenge. Who knows, maybe after 30 days, I'll start a year long blog challenge where I do a daily blog post. I figured I'd jump right in and do day 1 today :)

*Day 1 - Recent Picture of Myself, Introduction and Interesting Facts

*Josh and I have been married since July 2008- so roughly 2 and a half years. We still consider ourselves newlyweds :)

*College Student - Currently working on my Bachelor's in Elementary Education, although I plan to go ahead and become double majored in Early Childhood Education as well.

*I try to take care of myself, but have fallen off the bandwagon lately with my diet and yoga. I promise to get back into it soon!

*We don't have any children yet, although we've been trying for quite some time and hope that it does happen soon.

*I work with 12-18 month olds, a job I never saw myself doing or having the patience to do, but yet, I love it and think that's why I want to pursue my Early Childhood degree, I love working with the younger kids.

*I have a pretty crazy addiction to clothes, makeup, and accessories. I have SOOOO much, but can never quite have enough!

*I love to be crafty, girly, and to make cute things.

Meaning behind my blog name

It is Josh and my names plus our last name. We're real original around here lol. :)

My first love

Silly as it may seem, I still remember my first love. I was in first grade and his name was Lance. My love was composed of chansing him around the play ground, doing anything I could to show my love and yet, it was never reciprocated. He was actually pretty mean to me and made me cry a lot. When we were both about 16, we tried dating, but it didn't work out lol. Funny thing is, we're pretty good friends now and talk regularly.

My first real love, or so I thought, was my ex. He was a lot of first for me and I put my heart and soul into that relationship and was crushed. I was treated bad, cheated on, you name it, it happened. Josh came into my life when my heart was broken and I was a bitter, angry person. He taught me what love was and changed my world around. Being in love with your best friend shows you that all the crap you went through in the past was nothing and the love you thought you knew is nothing compared to the amazing love you have now. He's my soul mate :)

My Parents

My mom and dad have been married 26 years and you can still see the love that they share. Sometimes I think they're the newlywed ones lol.

Meet my parents:

We're very close and always have been. They're really amazing to me!

My siblings

I have 2 sisters, one is 21 and one is 15.

This is my sister Connie. She just turned 21 and is going to school for nursing. She has a son- my nephew, Caiden who is the best! She's a great sister, but I dont get to see her as much as I would like. We're also complete opposites.

This is my sister Rachel. She's 15 and has a mind of her own. She's an exact twin of me. We're so much alike, it's scary! She's a sophomore in high school.She's a social butterfly, talkative, sweet, and there when I need her.

A Wedding Weekend

Yesterday Josh and I drove an hour and a half to Oklahoma City to watch 2 friends of ours renew their vows in a wedding ceremony. The ceremony was gorgeous and dispite the horrible, rainy weather, we made it to the site in 1 piece. Thought I would show you guys some pictures (ceremony pictures coming later since they're not uploaded on this laptop), but let's just say Thuy looked GORGEOUS!!

This is the fanciest I've dressed up in a while :)

Josh and I outside freezing:

Outfit shot (I swear I did iron this dress!):

My Postcard Swap

I decided to take part in the postcard swap that Jessica- ( did, because like Jess, I too love getting pieces of real mail in the mail, other than bills and junk mail. I was very lucky and received 2 postcards, one from the lady I sent one to and one for the girl who drew my name. Here's pics of the cute cards they picked for me:

The first is from Ladonna, who I sent a card too and features a cute little Texas Longhorn:

The second is from Charity Michelle, the girl who drew my name and features a picture of the University of Kansas. Her postcard had the Jayhawk on front and was really cute.

This was a ton of fun and I look forward to doing more swaps in the future!

In a Funk

Lately, I am in a real funk. Everything was going well for us and yesterday, it fell through. Josh and I moved out of the house we were living in because we had a huge mice infestation that got out of control. All of our posessions are in a storage unit. I busted my ass and found a really nice rental house that was perfect for us and waited to move in on the 15th. Yesterday I got an email from the landlord satying the house has bad termite damage and would take months to repair. We are now stuck with my parents, with nowhere to go.

To top it off, I found out that I was rejected for the scholarship I applied for this summer and have waited months for. I now cannot go to school next semester because I owe 900 bucks after my scholarship hit. 2500 for a semester of college is ridiculous and in the 6 years I've been here, it's more than doubled. My plan is to work M-F 8:30-5:30 enjoy myself, find a house, and get ahead on bills. Maybe I'll graduate by the time i'm 30.... I'm in my last year and can't get a bone anywhere.

I am in a total funk right now. I feel like all of my hard work in finding a new house were for nothing. I am just really really upset for getting excited about this. I have no idea what's going to happen in the next few months.

Just pray for us, it's hard finding a nice house in this town that has a fenced in yard for our dogs that doesn't charge an arm and a leg.
