A few layouts...

I am still trying to get the hang of photographing my layouts. Eventually I'll get it! Here are some of my most recent and some favorite layouts.

Anyhow. I am happy to say that tomorrow is Friday. It's been a long week, even though it was a 4 day week for me. This weekend I have no big plans, which I am actually really happy about. Maybe some trips to the dog park, and maybe some heavy duty organizing, but other than that, it will be all relaxing for me!

things you may need to know...

  • I'm 24
  • I am marrying the love of my life on July 26, 2008. We've been together for 3 years and we couldn't be more excited about our future together if we tried.
  • I have the world's best puppy, Layla. She's a plot hound mix...or so we think! You never know with an SPCA pup!
  • I like to pretend that I am Rachael Ray
  • Favorite TV shows: Friday Night Lights, The Office, Grey's, LOST
  • I am a first year teacher. It's stressful, overwhelming, horrible, time consuming, and rewarding. It's been a rough year, but I have learned so much from many great people.
  • I scrap best when my apartment is clean.
  • I don't have cable, but I love my subscription to Netflix.

Let it begin...

Here goes...I have wanted to do this for a few months, and here I am. I think now would be a good time for me to start a blog. In the midst of wedding planning and this crazy year of teaching, I think I could use some motivation to take pictures and scrapbook and to, basically, do what I love.
There are so many people's blogs that I have been reading for awhile now that I have never commented on, mostly because I didn't feel cool enough to comment since I didn't have my own blog. Silly, I know. But I guess it's time to change that.

So, this is my blog. I love Carly Simon and that's where my blog's name came from. As far as the title, In No Simple Language, it's from Love Song for a Savior , by Jars of Clay, one of my all time favorite songs.

This is all for tonight. I look forward to see where this blog leads me!
