Let's Play Catch Up Part 2

In case you live under a rock during football season this weekend was the Alabama vs. Arkansas game. Josh's bother and wife came to stay and go the game with us. Of course the minute we get out and about the bottom falls out and we get a little wet. So week 2 of getting wet at a football game! Thankfully, Josh's company owns a box at the stadium and we were able to sit up there and stay dry during the game. Alabama won, Troy won, and Auburn won so we were very pleased with the weekend. Have I said before how much I love football season?!?! I just love Game Day, the atmosphere and everything about it!! Here are some pictures for the weekend!!

Also I have been offered a mini position at the elementary school I have been subbing at. The principal asked me if I would be interested in being kind of like a teacher's aide. I would go to different grade levels and help strugglers with different subjects. I would start as soon as my long-term job is done and it would be everyday, all day! It's not a contract, benefits job, but keep praying that it will turn into something more!!

Let's Play Catch Up!

I haven't wrote anything in awhile so I thought I would catch everyone up with what is going on with us. Two weekends ago my sister got married. Needless to say I cried just about the whole ceremony! I guess the thought of my 20 year old, little sister getting married and the fact that my dad wasn't there just took over me and I boo hood. My Pap Paw walked her down the aisle wearing a tux for the first time maybe ever! He looked so proud to be apart of Morgan's special day and I know that he was. I'm sure my dad was looking down from heaven with a big smile on his face! Knowing that his 2 girls married great men and that Mom will be getting a raise! Morgan has a lot to learn about being a wife; I still have a lot to learn. They love each other very much and it will be tough at times, but they'll get through it. I foresee a lot of meals at Gran and Daddy Gene's in their future. Here are some pictures from the wedding below.

After Morgan's wedding we went to the Auburn vs. West Virgina game. We enjoyed seeing some people from Phenix City and catching up with them. However when it came game time I was not a happy camper. First of all I am a BAMA fan and the only reason I agreed to go to the game was because Josh suffered through the Alabama game last weekend. Anyway the minute we got to the stadium the bottom fell out!! I'm not talking just a little sprinkle I mean "Cow peeing on a flat rock" rain!! So here we are with 90,000 other people smushed so close you could barely breathe!! All along I was thinking, "I'm not even a Auburn fan and I'm sitting through this!!" Finally they let us go to the stands and game started. Below are two pictures of how the stadium looked. If you were there then you know this is no exaggeration!!

Football Season!

Friday was Josh's 25th birthday. We celebrated by going to Kobe the Japanese restaurant and then going to Home Depot afterwards. Exciting I know. Tuscaloosa was kind of dead because of the game being in Atlanta. However we enjoyed each other's company!

We're soo excited that Football Season has started! Sadly, Troy lost Thursday night so that kind of put a damper on the football season spirit. However, Josh and I both cheered up when our "other" teams won! I always look forward to this time of year! There's always a game to watch and a team to pull for. This weekend is Bama's first home game against Fla. Intl. (i think). I will be making the trip to good ole' Phenix City for my sister's bridesmaids luncheon. But I will be coming back to T-town hopefully just in time for kick-off! Below are some pictures of the dogs in their new Bama/ Auburn gear. Can you say "House Divided?" We Can!

I survived!

I survived my first day at the elementary school! I am very overwhelmed at the moment!! Teachers have all summer to plan for the school year and I'm having to do it as I go! I just hope that when the teacher does come back I haven't totally ruined the way she does things, because I have no basis to go by! Today I had the former sub in there with me kind of showing me the ropes, but tomorrow I am all alone. So please pray for me!

My mom informed me that I had quiet a few grammatical errors in my last blog, so I apologize for that. I type so fast that I don't pay attention to what I'm saying. So forgive me I will try my best to speak correctly.

As we speak my sweet husband is downstairs helping me get organized! He's such a doll! Until next time "God is Love Rev. Run :)"

Oh By The Way...We're Famous!!

JE Jedges Photgraphy took the pictures at our wedding. They have just came out with a new video advertising OakHurst Farms where we got married, and Josh and I are in their video!! Yay! So I tell everyone we're famous! The link's below just scroll down to where it says Oakhurst Farms-Through the Eyes of JE Hedges and press play!

Trying this blog thing out...

So I thought this would be a good way for family and friends to keep up with what is going on with Josh and I here in Tuscaloosa. And deep down inside I'm one of those nerdy compter people who like to be a part of the "cool" thing to do.

Josh and I are enjoying living in Tuscaloosa. The drive to and from Birmingham everyday took a toll on Josh so we had to move here quick. Josh jokes that "my dreams have finally came true because I am living in 'God's Country!'" It is nice being here and seeing the football stadium everyday, and just knowing that I will be right in the middle of things once the season starts. However, (now what I am about to say may shock you, but it has to be said) there are quite a few...rednecks living around here. A friend told us that all the "classy" Bama fans live out of town and drive in for the games. Now I'm a bama fan so I can say this with no problem, and Josh loves hearing me say it, but they are everywhere! And for you Auburn fans, there in Auburn too! Don't act like in Auburn everyone there is classy, because they aren't! One thing I do miss about B'ham is the malls! I was 5 minutes from The Summit and 10 from The Galleria, so that's something we've...I mean I've had to get used to.

Job wise, Josh enjoys his job very much and it sounds like he's really good at it. I've heard many people say he's a good, hard worker. I hope that quality trickles down to our children. Josh has started going out of town some days for work (i.e. playing in golf tournaments for the company) so I get a little lonely when it's just me and the pooches. They keep me safe! Speaking of pooches, below is a picture of Bouncer. He likes to look out the window and look for Josh to come home in the afternoons. As for me I am keeping busy substituting for Tuscaloosa County. I found out yesturday that I will be taking a "long-term sub" for a teacher out on medical leave. So I will kind of have some stability for awhile (instead of being the new teacher at a different school everyday). I have learned a lot about myself as a teacher and as a person during this time. Patience is key when dealing with students. Sometimes we forget as adults that children don't know as much as we do, and we need to take the time to show and explain something to them. I have also realized that there are a lot of parents who don't spend enough time with their children and it effects them in so many ways. Therefore, I will make sure that when Josh and I do have children we will spend more than enough time with them!

I hope to keep this blog up to date, so be patient with me!
