Last semester a good friend of ours took some pictures for Drew and I and I think it is about time that we post them. Thank you Mrs. Mader!

So I am done with student teaching but while I am sitting around now I am trying to be proactive and hand my resume to different schools. I had my first interview yesterday, not sure how it went. She said I was doing a good job answering the questions but at the end I felt like I got a wish washy response. Just keep praying, I'm hoping that all went well.

On another note...if you like fruit dip I have an excellent (unhealthy) recipe that is great for showers and parties.

Apple Dip

3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
8 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup Heath toffee bits

Combine until smooth. Chill. Can dip apples in pineapple juice so they won't turn brown.

It is also really good with grapes and strawberries.

So I have decided I am really bad about keeping everyone updated, but I am going to TRY! That is the key word. Well I figured I would give a year in review so far including last semester. I still live my life in semesters seeing as how I am still in college and also preparing to be a school teacher. My year will always be from fall to spring not January to December :)
Last September Drew got a job with a company called FM global he is working as a field engineer doing risk evaluations for different corporations. He was here in Dallas while I was back in good ol' College Station. I was living with Anna Cherry who was a wonderful roomate. That semseter with my sorority I got involved in songfest and we won!! I'll have to post pictures, it was awesome. I also was very busy with school I felt like it was project after project but I really felt that my creativity began to shine through in my work.
In February Drew and I bought our first house. I love the feeling of not wasting money on rent and...not feeling like we are moving in 2 years. It is nice to have a home. I also need to post pictures of our house but to be honest I haven't even taken any yet. I have been busy finishing up my college career with student teaching and today that day has come. I am done with college I just can't believe it. I have been in school for the last 5 years and now I'm done. It is wierd not being on campus anymore, going to all the games. I tell ya it is a very surreal feeling for me. So I am done but I still have to wait a month to graduate. It has all been worth it though, I will be graduating Cum Laude it has been something I have worked very hard for. May 16th is the big day and it will be official...I will be a college graduate.
