Half Birthday..

My birthday is December 24th and Zack decided that starting this year the two of us are going to start celebrating my half birthday so that is exactly what we did on July 1st! The entire day was filled with surprises for me due to the fact that I had no clue as to where we were going. We started the Friday morning off by eating breakfast at Chick-fil-A.. Yummy! After enjoying our chicken minis and hash browns we were off. The next place on our list was the Memphis Zoo! We had such an amazing time looking at all of the animals and just spending time together. Even though it was July the weather was not that hot at all. I even let Zack talk me into going into the reptile house. If you know me well you know I am SEVERELY afraid of snakes so this was a huge moment for me!! Obviously I made it out alive so I guess you could so I concerned a little piece of my fear that day thanks to Zachary. Our favorite part of the zoo had to be the new area for the bears. Two of the 3 grizzlies were playing and running around like little kids while the other one napped in the shade. It was so fun! After leaving the zoo we stopped to eat lunch at one of our favorite spots, Huey's. Delicious like always! After lunch Zack surprised me and took me to Anthropologie and told me I could pick out a dress to wear that night. Luckily I work there and get a great discount but this trip we actually found 2 dresses on sale and they ended up being super super cheap! Happy birthday to me right?! After shopping we both went home and got dressed for the evening. I wore one of my new dresses and Zachary looked so handsome in his dark Levi jeans and a plaid navy shirt. We ate dinner at Ciao Bella. I had only been here one time before with Elinor but it was Zack's first time. We both were very impressed. After a birthday dessert we headed to midtown to see Footloose at Playhouse on the square!! The show was AMAZING! Everyone did such a great job. It was opening night and everything appeared to go perfectly. Altogether we had a perfect day. Zachary you bring so much love and happiness into my life. Thank you for being such a wonderful man. I love you!


A few semesters ago after staying up late doing work at the library for exams, I left my WONDERFUL Macbook in my jeep while I went inside my house for a few hours to sleep. When I returned 4 hours later I came to find my computer had been stolen. It was horrible!!! Since then I have been using other peoples' computers to do homework and what not. With the upcoming semester approaching I knew I needed to get a computer of my own but I didn't know how I was going to be able to afford it UNTIL YESTERDAY. I was at Hutchison helping my lead teacher, Nicole set up our PreK classroom. She left to pick up her new computer and go through some training. I decided to stay around and continue to work on the room. About 10 minutes later she called me and told me to come down as well because they had a computer for ME!!! I couldn't be more excited if you cant tell! The computer I received is a year old (which is awesome) and here is some more good news.. the school was selling the old laptops and I was able to get one to keep forever for $25!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are PCs but they already have all of the software I will need until I graduate and can buy a new computer of my own!!! The Lord has provided so much for me!!!! I just thought I would share this because it was such a huge moment for me!! Yaaayyyy! Thank you Jesus!
