Yes, please.

So, I'm now a Pinterest addict.  Did I need a new technological addiction?  Absolutely not. 
 Am I loving it?  Most definitely.
While doing some "pinning" earlier, I noticed this recipe.
Conveniently, I love candy corn, oreos, pretzels and white chocolate, so I will most definitely be acting like I'm going to make it for somebody else, but I'm really just going to eat it all myself  making this soon! YUM!
Happy, happy fall!

Maybe you saw this on the news---or on my facebook. But if not, you just must. But be sure you have kleenex ready!
You never know when you can make somebody's day (or even their entire life).

Wish List Wednesday

Now, we all know that nothing beats my dear friend MSKS's "Wish List Wednesdays," (I look forward to hers every week....don't you?) but I've been doing a little wishing myself on this Wednesday, so I thought I'd share. 
I wish...
1. ...that every week was a 4 day work week.  I'm grateful for mine this week!

2. ...that I could pull off being a redhead.  I've wanted red hair for as long as I can remember! 
What do you think?

Hmmmmm....perhaps I should stick to being a brunette....
(Click here to try hair styles on you!)
3. ...that college football was on every Saturday!  (Speaking anybody else excited about these?)

4....that I had the time (and patience) to create something like these for Halloween!  My 2nd graders would love them!

5....that I could pull off these headbands!  I've tried several on multiple times at DSP, but I just can't do it. 

6. ...that I could sing--like really really sing.  Unfortunately, I'm hoarse about half of the time, so singing is sort of out of the question for me.  I'd probably choose to sing like Adele..or Sara Groves...or Patty Griffin...and oh how I love Carrie Underwood's voice too!

7. ...that I was going to a Halloween costume party this year.  I would most definitely want to wear this

What are you wishing for this Wednesday?

Weeeeeeee're OFF to see the wizard!

Kristen, aka "Glinda the Good Witch"
Heather, aka "The Scarecrow"
Henry, aka "The Tin Man"
Jones, aka "The Cowardly Lion"
Noelle Adams, aka "Dorothy"

Pretty stinking cute, huh?

I wasn't really invited to dress up with the fam, but I'm thinking I would've made a fantastic witch!
Don't you think?

What are you and your family dressing up like on Halloween?  I love a good costume idea, so please share!

testing 1..2..3..

So.... I just downloaded a new app on my phone called 'Blogger-Droid', and I just wanted to do a test run...

If you're reading this, then I guess it's safe to say that it was a success. Yay.

Blogging from my phone? Yikes. Now I have no more excuses for being a blog-slacker....

SUCH a slacker.

Goodness gracious.  Where have I been?

Well...I wish I could say that I met... 
....we fell madly in love, and then we lived 

even that I was here (preferrably with the handsome, rich, nice man mentioned above) :

....sipping on something that looks similar to this:

But alas, that's just not the case.

Here's a little of what really has kept me busy these past several weeks...
Folks, let me tell you something.  I love teaching.  I do. (Why else would I do it after all?)  But, so far, this has been the most challenging year in all my 8 years of teaching.  Don't get me wrong, I love my students, principals, and co-workers, so pinpointing exactly what is making this year so difficult has been challenging.  I'm not here to complain (I'm so very thankful to have a job!), but I just thought I owed a partial explanation as to why I've been so slackerish with the blog.  Hopefully, my priorities will get back to normal soon, and blogging will be back at the top of my list! :)
In all seriousness, though, there have been some issues--both school-related and non school-related---that have been going on in the past couple of months.  Prayers appreciated....

Other things (people!) keeping me busy:
-These 3 sunshines of my life:

Did I mention that both of my sisters are now living in Starkville, which means I get to see those sweet little ones all of the time now?!  Nothing could make me happier.

-Some MSU tailgating and football!
I love my bulldogs.  Have I mentioned that before?
My dear friends Jimbo and Caroline Hearnsberger
-A gorgeous wedding weekend in Jackson
Me and Heather.  She was the beautiful Matron of Honor at her sister's wedding
 And seriously, y'all, this wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever been to!  It was outside, the weather was perfect, the decorations were to-die-for, the food was divine, the band was awesome, etc. etc. etc.  I think you get the point.
I took some pictures of the decor and such (although you really had to see it to understand just how beautiful it was!).
Take a look:

....and a few more amazing pictures I saw on facebook, but can't take credit for taking them myself...


So, see?

I really have been busy.

Hoping that my busyness will stop interfering with my blogging though.  It's really getting on my nerves.

Thanks for hanging in there with me!  I'm glad to know you're still reading about My Little Life!

I shall now leave you with my new favorite thing:

Hoping your Wednesday is fantastic.

I'm coming, I'm coming!

Don't give up on me!  I'm still here.

Lots going on.  And when there's not lots going on, I'm just tired.

No excuse for not blogging though, I know.

Next post coming soon.  PROMISE.

Does anybody even miss me?

Bend in the Road...

Sometimes we come to life's crossroads

And we view what we think is the end.

But God has a much wider vision

And He knows that it's only a bend.

The road will go on and get smoother

And after we've stopped to rest,

The path that lies hidden beyond us

Is often the path that is best.

So rest and relax and grow stronger

Let go and let God share your load,

and have faith in a brighter tomorrow

You've just come to a bend in the road.
