This Weekend in Photos!

These are the pictures from our very busy weekend. One of my close friends got married! Hailey got to be one of the flower girls. The other flower girl was Kenzie, who is one of Hailey's best friends. The pictures to the left and right are from the rehearsal dinner and the pictures below were from the wedding. We got up early on Saturday and got the girls hair done. Then the wedding was at 2pm and the reception was at 5. The girls danced the night away! I got to spend time with some friends that I don't get to see very often and see Hailey all dressed up! I even took extra time and figured out how to curl my hair! Wahoo! It was a beautiful wedding and a great time!

One Very Busy Week!

This week has been jammed pack with things to do and they still keep coming!

Yesterday was Administrative Professionals day, so we had a pizza party at work. That was pretty exciting and a nice break. I knew I had a rough draft due at midnight so I had some extra time so I thought I would get it out of the way really quick. Well, I was wrong about that! My final project is 25 to 37 pages long!! And the first 25 pages were due yesterday! So I used some spare time to work on that. I had to take Hailey to dance yesterday since we have plans tonight. I figured that would give me some time to work on it, but wrong again! It was parents night so we got to sit in the class! Then by the time dance was over the Caps final game for round one of the playoffs game was on! No way was I able to focus on my paper. So the verdict is, I'm going to turn it in late for points off! Boo! But I would rather take the time to get a better grade then slop something together and get a bad grade. My final huge project is due May 6th so it's right around the corner!

This morning already had been exiting! Today was a patents day where we could go to school and see a special thing for Hailey. This week is "week of the young child" and had been a special week for Pre K students. They all received a people ribbon to wear each day this week. They have had special visitors, including a police officer and his dog Cooper! 

After I got Hailey on the bus, I took Pixie to Laplata to the groomers. She was such a stinky mess! Then headed back to school for the event. The students sang a special song called "Special Me". Then they each took turns talking into the microphone telling which special book they wanted to share with their parents. Hailey choose The Taking Crayon Box. It was a cute story about a box of crayons where no one got along. A little girl bought them and drew a picture with them. Then they realized how unique and special each one was and how they needed each other. It was very cute! After that we got cookies and punch!
So now I am laying here enjoying my few minutes of quiet before I have to get Hailey off the bus. Then we have a little while to get homework done, before we go get Pixie and meet up for the wedding rehearsal at 6. After that it's the rehearsal dinner and home for showers and bed time for Hailey and working on my paper for me! Let's just say I hate using my leave but I am sooooo glad to be off today and tomorrow!

Something to look forward too...

Taurus Apr 23 2012
 If you had a time machine, Taurus, would you travel to the future or to the past? Most likely right now you would travel to the past. That's because there is some event from your own ancient history that is still bothering you. It's possible that you still believe that if you had only done something differently, your whole life would be better. But the best is yet to be, and you would be wiser to travel to the future in that machine. Then you would see how events of the past have led you to a wonderful opportunity that wouldn't have existed otherwise.

I check my horoscope without a doubt every morning. They always seem to relate to my personality and things I am going through. When I first read this, I immediately thought to myself that I would travel to the past and change things. But this horoscope is exactly right. I am where I am because of my past.

I believe there is a reason behind everything. There are things that happen that you may never understand, but they are still part of the reason where you are today. Just think, one tiny decision brought you to where you are today. I may not have no where near a perfect life, but there are things I would never regret or change. I have a healthy, beautiful, smart, and loving daughter. A house, that at time is too small or never clean enough, it keeps me dry and warm. A crazy family that I can always count on even though I may not always agree with the things they say and do. I have friends that mean the world to me and I can count on if I ever truely needed something. Those things are all part of my paths I have choosen. If I went back in time then there is a chance that all those things could disapear. I may wish things are different, but everything happens for a reason. People come in and out of your lives. Though it is hard to let certain ones go, it makes room for new ones. Pain happens, heart break happens, and tears happen, but those are all part of what has gotten me here today. I may wish things are different, but there is no use. If I could go back in time, would I really change something and give up all that I have here? I don't think I would.

I hold my own destiny in my hands. I can choose to continue on this path or take another path. No matter where I go or what I do, it will all lead me where I am supposed to be. It may not always be where I have planned to be or even where I want to be, but it will put me exactly where I need. So here is to the future and the "wonderful opportunity that wouldn't have existed otherwise". <3
