In case you needed a good laugh...

Well, I hope this picture puts a smile on someone's face! Mark and I had to have our picture made for our church directory. We felt a little gooby while we were taking the picture, but when the proof came back in the mail, Mark and I both had a good laugh. How old do we look? Anyway, it's been a while since I've posted. Not much is new. Mark and I went to Oxford this past weekend and had a blast. Really, who knew the Rebels were going to actually play that good. After the game, Mark and I ate dinner at a new restaurant called Waltz on the Square...it was awesome!!! I highly reccomend trying it out if you're ever in the Oxford area. We are going to be traveling to Athens this weekend for the Ole Miss/ Georgia game. I'm looking forward to it, because we'll get to hang out with Mark's family, baby Ty included!!!!!! Mark always gets very nervous when I spend a lot of time with his sister's son Ty, or my cousin Jen's little girls Lindsay and Gracie. He says he can see the "baby fever" come over me!!!! What can I say, it's true!! :) Anyway, I guess that's what you get for having the CUTEST kids in your family! On a different note, how awesome was the premiere of Dancing with the Stars? I'm already a huge fan of Jennie Garth! I'm watching the men dance as I'm typing. I feel like all is right in the world now that my shows are starting! Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, and My Name is Earl. I just don't think I'm going to be able to bring myself to watch Private Practice. However, I'm looking forward to the new show Big Shots! I've been a huge fan of Michael Vartan since Alias! I just love fall!!!! Poor Wayne Newton... he has no dance skills! Sara Beth, if you're watching, I'm so sorry! I know you love him so!!! Oh, and I'm happy to report that my classroom has had air for the past few weeks! Have a great week everyone!

Is it really only September?

For those of you who are teachers, you know what I'm talking about! I can't believe we have only been in school for five weeks. It feels like it should at LEAST be March or April!!!! I haven't posted in a while because I have honestly been too tired to think of something remotely interesting to say. Last week my air conditioning in my classroom went out and it was miserable. At one point one of my little boys asked, "Mrs. Maz, may I stick my head out the window to cool off?" Finally, (after several parents made phone calls to the right people) we got our air fixed on Friday. Needless to say, it was a very trying week at work. We ended the week by having our friends, Batina and Chris, come over for dinner. As usual, Batina and I were left to entertain ourselves as our husbands played the new Tiger Woods game on the PS3. How sad is that? Mark is 30 and Chris is 25!!! On Saturday I decided to skip out on the game. Mark left around noon and I literally stayed in my pajamas ALL DAY!!!! I watched Lifetime and AMC like it was my job!!! And loved it!!! This week has been much better at school. However, I sent progress reports home today, so that previous statement may change. In my Beth Moore bible study, she talks about how we as women try too hard to be Domestic Goddesses AND Employee of the Week. There comes a point when it is just too overwhelming. You have to stop and DECIDE to choose joy. So I'm going to try to start each day with that mentality. I'm going to CHOOSE JOY!!! I may not feel it but God has appropriated it, so I'm going to choose it! I hope this might help someone like myself, get through the rest of the week. I hope y'all have a great one!! Oh, I've been wondering something. I've become a horrible blog stalker. At first, I would only look at the blogs of people I know, then I got bored and clicked on some random's blog. Ok, here's the question, should I leave a comment on their blog, or forever remain a silent blog stalker? I really don't know the "blog etiquette." Just wondering. :) Oh, and did anyone see Britney Spears' performance on the VMAs? No, I don't watch MTV, but I definitely watch YouTube and I also love some PerezHilton. Thoughts anyone? SaraBeth? Whitney?

Long weekend away...

Mark surprised me this weekend with a trip to Sandestin. We left early Saturday morning and came back late yesterday. We had so much fun!!! When we were telling my parents about everything we did while in Florida, we both realized that the majority of our time was spent eating!!!! How sad is that? When we arrived on Saturday we had lunch at the Acme Oyster House. So good! That night we ate at a place called Finz. We didn't really like that place. I would not recommend it. The next day we had Sunday brunch at The Beachwalk Cafe. I have to say that this was probably the best place I've eaten in Destin! We will definitely be going back. Anyway, we finished our stay by having dinner at Pompano Joe's. Always a fun place. Between all the food, we managed to sqeeze in some beach time, shopping, and even some putt-putt golf. We had so much fun! Although, I returned with an extra ten pounds! Therefore I started Weight Watchers today! I got an email from my friend Sally today, and I have exactly ten weeks until her wedding. How much weight can a person lose in ten weeks? We'll see!!! I also started a Beth Moore bible study tonight on the book of Daniel. I'm very excited about this study and the women who are a part of it! I haven't been in a small group bible study since I moved from Tupelo almost two years ago. It's a great feeling to finally be a part of one again. So, I'm still thinking that the only people who read this blog are my mom and my sister, so I love y'all and hope you have a great week. Mark is now rolling his eyes seeing that I'm "blogging" again! Above are the only pictures we took from our little "getaway." I'm horrible about taking pictures!
