The Winner Is....

I am pleased to announce that the winner of the Give-thanks Giveaway is Melissa from Still in The Storm! Congratulations Melissa, I will get the cards to you right away :)

Thank you to all who entered! I appreciate all of your support so much! I loved doing the giveaway...there will definitely be more to come ;)

I am truly enjoying fall! Here are a few of my favorite things....

1. Autumn Wreaths.

They are so beautiful and welcoming! Just brings a smile to my face when I walk through the door :)

3. New gloves.

I am quite pleased with my new gloves from Target. There is nothing worse than being unable to feel your hands in the cold, but these are so warm!

4. A skirt for any season.

One of those thrift store finds that is a staple all year long! LOVE!

4. Chili.

It's so nice to be warmed on the inside on a cold, windy day!

What about this season brightens your day?

A Few of My Favorite Things: School

Student teaching has been great! The 1st grade class makes each day fun, exciting and unpredictable! I just love seeing all my students everyday, and I am learning tons!  Student teaching is helping me grow as a teacher in many ways that sitting a college classroom could never do. I just finished my second week of teaching every subject on my own. I am loving it :)

A few things that make me smile....

1. My first gift from a student.

This cookie was adorable AND didn't contain any of my forbidden allergens! 
Delicious :)

2. Being Ms. Parsons

Another sweet gift from a student :) I am thrilled to hear my students call me Ms. Parsons. It makes it all the more real that I made it through all my college classes to this point--I am actually teaching these children!

Last week, few of my students found the idea that I have a first name most interesting and hard to wrap their minds around :)

3. Turtles.

For an art activity, the students made their favorite animals from play-dough. I sculpted a turtle and suddenly there were 16 more turtles to join him!

This sight made me smile. One day after everyone turned in their finished artwork. :)

4. These little ones.

By far the best thing about student teaching has been to watch each child grow and learn. I love each of their personalities and the way their little minds think! They teach me so much :)

A Few of My Favorite Things

Happy Sunday! Today was my last Sunday at our little church in Utah. It has been amazing to get to know everyone and be involved with the teens :) I will definitely miss Bryce Canyon Bible Church!

Here are a few of my favorite things this week...

1. The Book of Acts.

It has been so encouraging to read Acts and the Holy Spirit empowered the believers after Jesus ascended into heaven and how the Lord protected His church. So many were against the spread of Christ's name, yet the gospel spread throughout the world. The early believers served the Lord so boldly, and I am encouraged that I serve the same great God today! Nothing will thwart His plan :)

2. Tea in the morning.

Ahh I love it! Tea makes going to work at 6 am so much easier :) My favorite is Salada Green Tea!  SO GOOD!

3. The sun.

It is rainy season here, we have a storm almost every afternoon....which is good, we need it. But..I just love when the sun comes back out!

I'm addicted. This stuff smells awesome! My skin has been super dry lately, and Bath and Body Works has done the trick for me!!

And my very favorite thing....

5. Friends from China and Taiwan.

These guys are a blast!

I have loved getting to know them...

And learn about their culture...

And how to write Chinese...

I learned how to write Wes and I's Chinese nicknames! My writing is the second row;)

That's all! Have a great week!

A Few of My Favorite Things

Here are just a few things I have enjoyed this past week...

1. Spending time near water...finally!

 One thing I have missed while I've been in Utah is the beach! I was so excited to visit the Tropic Reservoir and just see a little water :)

2. Blue and yellow...together.

3. My little black hair bow.

Speaking of bows...

This is my attempt at the Hair Bow How-to from Hair and Make-up by Steph. Such an adorable idea!

4.Flip Flops.

Wearing flip flops just make my feet so happy...especially this week with a blister on my pinky toe! :P

What are you loving this summer?
