What I've been up to (REALLY B.I.G. news!!)

Okay... so I know it's been a very long time since I've posted last. (Hey what's new? That has been my thing this year I suppose.)

I got my paperwork for my professional license. So I should be receiving my new PROFESSIONAL teaching license soon! Yay! Super excited. Kinda nervous about only having 2 observations starting in the fall. I'll have to be on the ball at all times, because just one bad score and my overall average is gonna go down. (Not good!)

I'm gonna be HOPEFULLY *fingers crossed* starting my grad program soon. Hopefully in June. Looking forward to it, but kinda very nervous about the application process.

I've been working hard at losing weight. So far I've lost 37 lbs (since Jan. 22nd). I'm up to four miles each time I go walking. I need to get a gym membership so that I can work on muscles/toning. I've got 40 (maybe 50) to go still. The total number just depends on what I feel like/look like when I reach the 40. 
 Lastly... and this is the B.I.G. news! The boyfriend is now the FIANCE! Yes, you read that right! After almost 5 years of dating (it will be 5 years September 17th) he finally popped the question! It happened on Easter Sunday. He made breakfast, eggs and bacon, arranged it into a heart shape and then got down on one knee and asked. It was more romantic than it sounds.
So with that comes the territory of spending lots and lots of time wedding planning. I think we've settled on the center piece, the venue, the guest list (A, B, and C  --- the venue can only hold 100 people and we both have big families so we've had to move some of the people that we really really want to be there to list B and/or list C.), and the date. We're going to be waiting another year before getting married to make sure that we can afford everything. So our date is officially 10-11-14.

Okay.... well thats what I've been up to in the time since I've last posted. If you read all of this, thank you for being a loyal reader... even when I have not been a loyal blogger. I appreciate it!

Have a good week.... we're closing in on the end of the year. We've got 12 1/2 days left and I can't wait until the final bell rings (so to speak).
