Just call me Mrs. Stall

What's funny is as soon as I typed my title. I thought, " now why did I type that? Because my students sure don't call me Mrs. Stall, they call me "teacher, teacher" all day long."
Two days down. Alot to go. But it's good. (Pretty good at least)
Details to come!

We also got some photos taken, so we'll see how those go and hopefully post some soon!

Love and Respect

Jake and I went to a Love and Respect Marriage Conference this weekend. It was really interesting and funny. The message is based on Eph 5:33 and delves into how all women need love and all men need respect. Which is a really debated topic because woman expect love, but say respect is earned. And it talked a lot about how for men respect isn't necessarily what we think it is, but it is what men need to feel validated and right with their woman. Jake said he really resonated with it all. Check out the link of the couple who runs it. However, we concluded that we really don't have a of the issues being discussed that most people seemed to assimilate with (like the crazy cycle). So, we just joked that we're doing preventative maintenance for a later date. It was held at our church, but people came from all over. Luckily, we attended with a couple friend, so we got to hang out with them all weekend and talk about what was being discussed. All in all if you ever get the chance to attend one, we recommend you DO!

I'm quite pleased w/myself incase you couldn't tell

I've made it to day 4 at 10 chapters a day. With a new job. Talk about impressive people.

I'll just pencil that into my calendar

So, today my pastor challenged us to read the rest of the Bible by year's end. He said it's just 10 chapters a day, so let's do it.
I thought to myself, " I can do this". Then remembered what happened the last time I read the Bible in a year, I got behind a few days and instead of having 5 chapters to read one day, you have like 25, then 100, then you give up. So, seeing how I if I miss one day, I will have to read 20 chapters. I MUST not skip a day....

Polka Dot Deliciousness

It was our friend Katie's birthday yesterday and we were getting together for a little dinner. The instructions given to me were bring dessert. Well, you don't have to tell me twice. So, I got right on it. I had been wanting to experiment with fondant icing for a little while because it always looks so pretty. So, I started getting crazy cake ideas in my head and then headed to the grocery store. I ended up with a wild concoction, but it was delicious. Double chocolate fudge cake from a box, with raspberry preserve filling and then buttercream icing (Wilton's recipe) topped with fondant and of course polka dots made from a little red gel food coloring. Everyone keeps saying it looks like the cakes in Alice in Wonderland, which I didn't see, but I'm flattered by. It's really nothing, because fondant makes anything look good!
