yeah yeah I know I suck at blogging....

This is for Alisha.... :) I am OBVIOUSLY very bad at this, and I dont have any kids at home distracting me either!! ha It has been a crazy busy, fun, exciting, stressful, and wonderful 4 months!
School has been going WONDERFUL and can I just say I have the best class EVA!!! I mean they are a dream and I am really loving my time with them this year because I know it is over come May :( ha and who knows what the public school system will bring me next year!
I was going to try and update you all on everything we have been up to the past 4 months but I figured everyone who reads this knows me well enough to know or is friends with me on facebook so I figured you could fill in the gaps!

As of this moment I only have 2 more days until my Christmas break, and lets me honest besides "giving hope to low income children and making dreams possible" christmas break, spring break, fall break and SUMMER is why I became a teacher ;) haha ok so not entirely true but it sure does help! Evan and I plan on having a very relaxed break, first celebrating our 1 year woo woo, then having time with my family in Seminole and Tulsa. It should be just wonderful.
I will leave you with my latest funny story from one of my students. :) Now you have to imagine a 5 year old saying this and I promise it will be funny!

So this past week we have been learning the TWO sounds of the vowel letter O. The short sound like "octopus" and the long sound like "ocean".. Well I was brainstorming with the students asking them for some LONG O sounds... I was getting oatmeal, open, etc... then I little boy jumps up and says "Ive got it Mrs. Chambers!!!".... "Ok honey go ahead", I said... and in the most stern 10th and McArthur voice ever this is what he said for a LONG O sound..

"Hey nappy head you OWE me some money"!!!...
the long o word was "OWE" hahahahahhahah...... oh man I laughed until my eyes watered! Now I know that is not a NICE thing to say, but he didnt know that, and I explained later that we dont call people that, but still whew funny stuff..This is a regular happening in my class. So their ya go I hope it made you at least smile. Wish me luck, I will be having a chocolate fountain at school for my Holiday Party this friday!! The kids will go crazy for it!!

Its all about to end

As I sit here on my couch sipping my coffee watching Meredith, Al, Matt, and Anne (today show), I know its all about to end. Being a teacher summer times are magnificent! I love the freedom of my schedule, hanging with my man all the time, and just enjoying my days doing whatever the heck I want! Although this has been an EXTREMELY busy summer I have still gotten to sit back and relax, before I go back to school August 20th and the wild wolves return :)
Even though I am sad to go back to a daily grind I am also so anxious to meet my new little faces. Classes are like your own children I think, their will NEVER be one alike. I dread/look forward to the first day of school where I don't sit down for 7 hours straight, tie a million shoes, clean up spilt breakfast, comfort little babies fears of kindergarten, and countdown the seconds until lunch. I am praying for my new students already. Praying that they are getting enough to eat, being hugged at home, and that they will respond to me well. I worry that they will get to school safe on the first day and that the excitement that they have when they see me and the classroom for the first time will not die throughout the year. I also have to pray for myself. To remember where these babies come from, what they do and see at night, for patience, love, forgiveness, and to not scream GET ME OUTTA OF HERE in the middle of class :)

Even though I dream of days when I don't have to work and I get to raise my own babies at home, I truly do love my job and the lives I get to be a part of for 9 months.
Countdown to Chaos begins....

Finally, time to B.R.E.A.T.H.E

Once again it has been weeks since this thing has been updated. I would apologize, but not this time! ha... we have been soooooooooooo busy the past 6 weeks that I have barely had time to do anything besides the already scheduled events in our life! It has been a crazy but so much fun summer. We have made so many memories with friends, family, and each other.
So, the last time I was with you we were about to embark on a wedding and vacation. After the vacation, drum roll please.... I BECAME AN AUNTIE!!!! Yup thats right my sister had her first baby! Kate Olivia Hubbard was born on June 23rd. It was so great to be there to see her for the first time and to hug and give congrats to Meg and Kyle. So, then the following Thursday we closed on our house!! It was a stressful day with moving in 100 degree weather, but so worth it!! We love being home owners and feel blessed to be able to buy this house. So we moved in on a Thursday and the NEXT day we set off for Dallas for Minda and Jareds wedding. I was once again a bridesmaid, and the wedding was beautiful. So fun to be apart of a wedding where I know that girl has it has good as me :). Then we came home for two days. During those two days I got to see my dear friend Shan baby and precious, oh and drew! I miss Shan so much and everytime I see her I tell her to move back constantly. I feel special to have so a friend like her. Ok so where am I? Ok yeah, then my two little cousins, Grant and Luke, ages 6 and 7 came to OKC. We were babysitting them while their parents went on a Alaskan cruise. So we went to White Water, the movies, dinner, then we went on up to Tulsa to their house and had some more fun their for a few more days. Whew...all I can say was it was GREAT birth control haha... Ok, so then we came back to our home and painted the living/dining room. Evan did the edges and I was queen of the roller ha.. I have never really painted before... and I wont lie and disliked it alot. So much work and it never looks perfect!!! ugh... oh well its done and I couldnt lift my hands the day after. Then the past weekend we were invited down to Broken Bow by Evans Aunt and Uncle. They recently built a cabin on the lake there and it was so fun to just relaz, eat good food, and have fun on the lake wakeboarding and etc :)... Now we are finally home..... Evan has a camp coming up where he will play worship with his band, and I am going to see my sis and little miss kate, but finally I feel like I can breathe!!
Here are some pics from the past whirlwind 6 weeks!

I Should Just Quit

So it is VERY like me to start something like this blog, then make a few posts, then ignore it for three months :( ha I have a hard time being consistant with things! Its bad... thats why Evan should've done this blog he is more of a disciplined person. Oh well.....
These past few months have been crazy busy...being a teacher, the end of the year can be wild. Between zoo trips, award assemblies, field days, report cards due, literacy files due, moving rooms, and the last day of school my life has been hectic. Also, Evan just graduated from OBU this past Saturday. His family flew in from the northwest and we had to have a party!!
And for the biggest news...........we bought a house!!!! YAY... we are so excited :) We really werent even looking that hard or in a place where we HAD to buy one. We just thought the tax credit sounded nice and I walked into this house and fell in love... so I had to have it haha :)
With that I will update you with pictures also!!
We went up to Northeast Oklahoma to visit my sister and granparents and went on some hikes!

Creature of Habit

As the title of this blog states, I am, officially, all the time, a CREATURE OF HABIT. I am an extremist and when I find something I like, well I like it alot and usually go overboard on it. Good for my husband bc I like him alot :), bad bc it makes me stubborn, rigid, and uptight sometimes :) Well, something that I am a creature of habit about it what I eat. When I find something I like well I eat it OFTEN and much of it. Ex: Subway, Fiber one bars, Progresso soup, Queso, puppy chow, popcorn, string cheese, yogurt, and vitamuffins.
Well freshmen year in college I met my good friend Shannon...I distinctly remember one time at the FIRST of our friendship, being in her dorm room and her pulling out Cool Whip out of her freezer and eating with a spoon haha... Not that their is anything weird about it, I mean cool whip is GOOD I just never thought about eating it without pie of something, and especially not frozen..
Well over the next months I decided to try it...... and I fell in love... My love affair with Cool Whip has been going on for ummmm about 5 years now and I promise if you ever come over to my apt you will find a defrosted tub in my refrigerator, and a frozen one in my here is a list of what all I eat cool whip on.... I know you are all just DYING TO KNOW haha

1. pudding
2. yogurt
3. bananas
4. frozen with a spoon
6. oatmeal
7.strawberries/angel food cake
8. Progresso Soup (JUST KIDDING) but hey I would...
9. sweet potatoes
10. chocolate graham crackers
:) have a great day and go eat some cool whip!

I really dislike winter for many reasons, but the tip top tippy tippy TOP reason I HATE winter is because of how pale I get. Now, I know, the sun is not shining, everyone is SUPPOSE to look pale and healthy, but I am pretty close to a true blonde, more strawberry blonde and when I get pale I look WASHED OUT. Usaully during the winter I tan one month. Shan baby dont hate me, I know tanning is SO SO SO bad, but I gotta! Just one month! But, this winter I am married. Meaning, its not MY money but OUR money :( ha... So, I am sacrificing the $30 a month and my skin for the sake of saving money for a house and a summer vacation ( I guess its worth it ) ha...
With this said I need help! With my skin tone, self tanners never EVER look right but I am down to my wits end...I am buying a TAN IN A BOTTLE :)
So..... advice... whats the best??? I am willing to spend up to $20 (thinking it will last for a few months)... IDEAS?!?!?!?!?
I want to look like this again.... aw sweet SUN
