Bridal Shower: The Party

I had a wonderful shower day! I am so blessed to have friends and family who made the day special.

I drew a picture to match our new home for all the ladies to sign. This way we can enjoy all the sweet notes up in our home instead of them being stuffed away in a guest book!

Several of my friends brought their wedding photos and we had a contest to see who could identify the most couples and guess their wedding year. It was such a fun idea! 

I adored the cake made by our friend Karen! It was so beautiful :)

I was definitely showered with sweet gifts! We are so excited to use everything in our home.

I was so happy to have two of my bridesmaids there! Mikayla made it home from college just in time. 

And my maid of honor Sam has been here with me through thick and thin this year!

My Mom has a way with making everything so fun and special! We had a great day together. 

Melinda did an incredible job coordinating my shower! It was perfect!

I can't even begin to express how blessed I am to have such amazing ladies as part of my church family. Each friend has been an encouragement to me and such a sweet example of the love of Christ!
I am going to miss these friends so much, but will definitely never forget my years here and the impact the ladies of Community Baptist Church have made on my life!

Watercolor Greeting Cards

Watercolor greeting cards are my new favorite way to satisfy those sudden painting urges! I'm one of those impatient individuals who likes to see immediate results. With these, I have a painting complete in one sitting, and I can give them away without frames!

It's so exciting to see my Toilet Paper Roll Flowers featured at Frugal Mom! Check out her simple and easy tutorial at Frugal Mom {dot} Net :)

The Things They Say

I officially completed my first year of teaching!  I was so blessed with the opportunity to teach Art, Computer, and PE at Southside Christian School. Wow, what an awesome year. Each student, teacher, and parent was so encouraging and sweet!

My students always kept me smiling :) Here are a few of my favorite student quotes from the year.

First Grade girl: I know a word with the "sk" sound...Lusk! My stuffed animals say it all the time!

Kindergarten boy: Oh I'm so full, my stomach feels like its bleeding!
                          Does it hurt?
                          No, it just feels interesting.
1st Grade girl: You went to college? Whoa...she's famous!

Kindergarten girl: Miss Parsons! My picture is looks weedicweeus!

5th Grade boy: I don't want this class to end. I'll never be happy again without you!

1st Grade boy: Miss Parsons is getting married!? That feels like a punch in the stomach!

2nd Grade boy: There was 2 feet of snow at your college? That's why its a college for big kids. I wouldn't be able to walk there.

1st Grade girl: I hope Miss Parsons asks me to be a bridesmaid.

5th Grade girl: I have a question. You look like Pocahontas!

 1st Grade girl: Miss Parsons why do you have to move to Utah?
                     I have to move when I get married to be with my husband.
                    You can just video chat with him DUH!

1st Grade boy: I love green! Its my favorite number!

Kindergarten boy: Miss Parsons I can't put everything away! How can I take the air out of my hands?

5th Grade boy when I asked why he didn't have any work done after 20 minutes: Oh, I didn't notice I wasn't doing anything!

1st Grade girl: Miss Parsons you might have a baby soon.
                    Not too soon, I'm not married yet.
                    Miss Parsons, that's up to God not you. I mean, look at Jesus' mom!
1st Grade girl: I'm rich! I have so many cents!

4th Grade boy: We can move these tables, we're real men.
Later when asked to sweep the bathroom: Um, we don't want to get ourselves dirty.

Kindergarten girl: You're not a grown-up Miss Parsons, you're not married!

2nd Grade boy: I might come to your wedding, if I don't have a baseball game that day.

1st Grade girl: Dear Miss Parsons, Your smile is so cute. Your boyfriend is so cute. 

2nd Grade boy: I LOVEEEEE....I mean...I like tutoring with you.

1st Grade boy: You look like you are having a baby in that shirt.

Kindergarten boy to his friend: My mom said I have a pretty nice tan.

Preschool girl: My computer is not really listening to me!

2nd Grade boy: A New Year’s resolution is something you want to change this year. I will brush  my teeth.

  Thank you to my sweet students for giving so many memories I will never forget.
