I really want more than anything to be on a beach right now. I keep day dreaming of laying in my hammock on the beach....I'm so glad my Vaca will soon be here. Oh, Virginia Beach... I am so excited for you!!!

Our God Is an Awesome God!

Sometimes you just have to be a dork.....
I had just got my car back and was super excited.
Three weeks of it not working and finally it was fixed.
I am just hoping it doesn't need anymore work anytime soon!
Anyways... yes I am a dork!

Did I mention I love my new Hammock??  Its an awesome way to relax after work! I can't believe I've waited this long to get one! I bet Jillian Michaels would frown upon this purchase!! It certainly doesn't promote me doing her 30 day shred when I come home in the evenings :)

Here is the poem that came along with my desk full of awesome fishing supplies. It pretty much made my day! I love the people I work with, they make me days so much fun,!  Yes there are days when I don't want to be at work and am completely unmotivated to work, but my awesome co-workers make those days so much easier! Here it is:

There is so "Little" that Kayla can not do.
She does all the small things in the office,
And takes care of Kathy and Dr. Keeney too.

She answers the phone
when it rings continually.
She puts up with Sam and Brian
Who harass her daily.

She answers questions at th counter,
And helps students feel at ease.
But when it comes to free time
She runs for her tackel box as quickly as you please!

She grabs her shiny, fishing pole,
Then has Heather bait her hook.
She sits and quietly waits,
Till a fish her way does look.

The fish tugs on her line,
As it tries to eat her worm.
Then she quickly jerks her pole,
With a grip that's very firm!

After the fish is on her line,
She looks at it and starts to wine.
What will I do, she softly states,
I can't take if off, my worm it just ate!!

So her true friend Heather helps her out,
She doesn't like to see Kayla pout.

A day of fishing is so much fun,
When all you have to do,
Is try to catch the big one.

I hope with our gift,
You can be sure
That you are capable of removing
Even the trickiest lure

Have fun pondering life
As you sit and fish,
And think of all your friends
Waiting to fulfill your every wish.

Thanks so much Lori Sybert!!! I LOVED this so much!
Don't Judge, my socks rock and so do my boots.
My fishing skills.... not so much :)

God's "Little" Reminders

This week has not been the best of weeks but God has been putting random reminders in, to show me he loves me. My car that I took in to be fixed, I had to take back in to be fixed. My hot water heater decided to go out at home also. Nothing like working out to Jillian Michaels, then to turn around and find out you don't have hot water. Its a good thing after one of those workouts that all you need is COLD water. :) To top it all off on the way to Kansas to see a friend Megan Brenner, my car starts to act up again. I was pretty much devastated when this happened because I had to turn around and come home. Not going to lie, all these little things keep adding up, it "el stinkoes" (sp? Spanish class is doing wonders for me right?) and I really don't feel like being positive right now. However God's little reminders this week, from his word and others have made it bearable. He is always showing me that he is in control and I don't need to worry.

Watch this video and then, it will explain the story that will follow.

So I may be a baby when I'm fishing...I promise one day I will take a fish off a hook! 
Thanks Heather for being Amazing and taking the fish off before it Died!

I walk in on Thursday this week to find my desk at work, decorated with the most amazing surprise!! It seriously made my day and made a very appropriate blog post, Thanks Lori Sybert!

1. My Desk was decorated with Fishing memorabilia.
2. This is the back of my Desk which is just as sweet as the front!
3. The most awesome sign ever! Yes it is making fun of my height but that's okay. It says,"You must be at least this tall to work here." :)
4. The Glove is perfect, it will help me conquer my fear of touching the fish!

5. How about a "little" coke while you fish! Making fun of my height and last name...
6. My new fish Peggy Sue! She has managed to survive still three days later! She is a trooper!
7. Notebook, which will be very handy in the office.
8. My tackle kit, which is pretty sweet !!
9. Front of tackle kit.

Best Day at the Office Ever! Thanks Lori!! She even wrote me a poem, I will post this in a different post!
Thank you Lord for blessing me with random moments like this to help get me through this annoying week! I'm looking forward to new blessing from you! Best Dad Ever!
