back in the blogosphere!

Thursday, August 28, 2014

I know I have been missing from the blogosphere basically this whole summer.. Well, lots of things have been going on. Here is a quick little update before I get more indepth about summer travels and the SpouseLink conference in later posts. Things have been quite busy with painting, grad school, traveling, and continual spring cleaning (seriously).. so I'm finally back! To an extent.

First, Marshall & I celebrated our 3rd anniversary recently! 8.14.11 we were married in his hometown and have been enjoying every minute since then. It is hard to believe it's been 3 years!! But then again, time flies! I wrote a little bit about it in my last post and also, one our 1-year anniversary, posted wedding pictures here.

I am still painting and selling in my Etsy shop!! Feel free to visit & let me know what you think!! This Snow White canvas was a custom order for a friend of a friend & I love how it turned out! I also sold a Frozen print & have been giving some away to get my little shop's name out. I think soon is about time for a giveaway.. what do you think?? Your choice of a framed print of a painting, or maybe a custom order with a 12x16 canvas?? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! I would love to get a bunch of us bloggers together (especially if you have an Etsy shop, small business, are a consultant, or the like) and do a collective giveaway and post about all this fun stuff.

We have lots of books; this is one of 2 bookcases, both of which are jampacked with our reads. We love the wedding photo canvas my parents gave us that's on top, and Trouble loves being perched up there to see everything that's about in the living room. Yes, this happens daily.

This also happens daily: Scruffy Spice loves sitting in the windowsill/couch to look outside at all hours of the day, and makes the sweetest faces. We are just crazy about our pup! It's wild to think that we've had her for over 3 years now..

Also, yes, I am chugging along in grad school. These are the books I have been studying for 2 of my grad classes, and I'm a couple weeks in already. I have to work ahead since we will be going out of town soon, so within the next few days I will already be past midterms! (Thank you 8 week sub-terms!) Doing these classes online is really nice to be able to go at my own pace and work ahead if needed. I've also started a program to get my certification through the state of Texas, since that's home and where we will be once Marshall gets out in the future. It is a little surreal! A year from today I should be knee deep in student teaching/interning, and am very excited! In the meantime, working at the preschool is so fun! Those kids make it worth it and I didn't realize how much I would love that age group!
Ok, so some of these things I may have already touched on the other week. Next Im hoping to do a recap of our time at Disneyland, and finally of the SpouseLink conference. I promise I'm trying to be more disciplined in blogging consistently!!! Goodness, there is my word-of-the-year again: discipline. Until next time, here's a sweet picture we got of us at Disneyland! We went for our anniversary/birthdays and loved it. And I haven't even gotten to the part about the hotel on the grounds we stayed at....
