I gave in...

and finally got a smart phone. I definitely don't need one, and I am sure that this little device will be the death of any free time I had. Or more wasted time than anything else.

But, if you've got a blackberry, we can BBM:) Hahaha.

And, I was so excited today because I finally had a reason to buy a planner. The job starts on Friday and my life is now organized again! WOOHOO!

What happened to June and July?

Clearly, blogging has gone by the wayside to anything except blogging lately. I've loved this summer... doing not much of anything, reading whenever I want, hanging out with friends, grilling and cook outs, vacations, the list could go on and on. It's been quite nice!

Although I didn't blog, or much else productive, I did take 15 hours towards my masters degree in Education Administration, so I hope that it will be done this time next year! Just following in dad's footsteps...

The big girl job starts on Friday, and I'm so excited to be back in a middle school and back in a community of educators. I like those people. They inspire me and make me laugh. There really is just something special about people who truly enjoy working each and every day with 500 7th and 8th graders. I'm so stoked! :)

The marathon was finally finished in June and we can check that off of our bucket list... I think a few friends and I are going to do the Omaha Half Marathon in the latter part of September. I'm going to have to kick myself in gear, however. After completing 26.2 on June 6, I didn't run a lick until after July 4. Needless to say, it's been a longggg slow road getting back into somewhat decent shape... even to run 3 miles. Ouch.

10 things that should have been blogged about but I never got around to it...
10-Shaggin' at Fat Harold's (okay, watching all of the old people)
9-seafood at CG
8-keeping a 4.0 in grad school
7-Ryan and Casey Ann visit Omaha (and showing the Midwest shrimp and grits)
6-winning $60 at the casino
5-just enjoying San Diego for a week for our anniversary
4-learning to mow:)
3-The Tarte on the 4th. And being with family, and friends who are like family.
2-seeing Love and Theft, Lady A and Tim McGraw so close that I could touch them!
1-finishing 26.2 with the hubs!
