i want a fish!

So I think I want to get some Betta Fish. One for my classroom and maybe a few (like 2-so they can be neighbors) for the house.

I can smell FALL in the air.

The weather seems to be starting to cool down and I will embrace that with both arms. I always say that summer is my favorite season but more and more as I get older, I am starting to think that FALL is taking summer's place in my heart.  Our house is across the street from West Forsyth High School so Friday night's we often hear the announcer and drumline from the football games.  Football season is here and David is super excited about watching his Colts play tomorrow. I'm more of a basketball girl than football but I can deal with some pigskin.

I also am in high anticipation for the leaves changing colors, the colors of falls: rusks, browns, oranges, PUMPKINS, the FAIR!!!!, cool weather, ahhhh I cannot wait. The Dixie Classic Fair starts October 2nd and I am so pumped about it.  Even more exicted for the fact that I will get to go with my HUSBAND!  Another reason I embrace fall is that it represents CHANGE. And I can smell the wind that is starting to roll in..and this going to be for the better.

This weekend David and I went to Target and got a few things from our registry that we did not receive. We still have about 200 dollars left to spend there in gift cards. Shopping is delightfully fun:) David also found me a really cute red COACH bag at a yardsale (slightly worn but still the bomb).

..and we danced anyway

For those of you that weren't in attendance on August 29th, the bridal party def did a surprise dance out for our recessional.  This idea was inspired from lots of people posting the youtube video of the couple who danced into Chris Brown's forever on David's wall with comments like "I could totally see you doing something like this at your wedding."  So David got the idea to switch it up and have the bridal party (including his dad who was the officiant) dance for the recessional.  He picked Neyo's closer and began working on choreography.  We only met once for Dance Practice as a whole group then practiced again at the rehearsal. I would post the video but it's only up on facebook thus far.

But here are some photos.

Happy Birthday Shannon!

Today is Shannon's birthday. I decorated the outside of her classroom with pretty pink/magenta streamers and signs.  I think she was surprised and excited.  She liked her gifts which made me sigh with relief because she has so many Willow Tree people now, it's hard for me to keep up with what she has.

I am so blessed to have a friend/mentor/road dawg like her in my life and I pray God shines down upon her today all day long.

I present to you.....

Well ladies and gentlemen, I am officially a married woman. Jennie Ruth Hawk.  So with a new journey ahead, a new last name, and a evergrowing love with my husband, I have decided to rename my blog. What will pour out from these keys is uncertain but I am looking forward to this beautiful spiderweb of new beginnings I have found myself tangled up in:)
