Beauty and the Geek

Okay, so my new favorite show is Beauty and the Geek. I blame it on the fact that it's summer and all the shows are in reruns. But let's face it; I would watch this show in the height of Sweeps (except if it was opposite Lost; that would be a tough call).

My fave couple got the axe this week. Bummer. I loved Lauren, she was so cute and sweet. And let's admit it, Bill turned into a stud after his makeover! What is up with the uber-goofball Rich?! Get him off the show! It's like he doesn't want to learn how to not be a social outcast! Is he only there to be annoying? Anyways, I'm going to have to go with Scarlett and Shawn now. We'll see what happens...,11116,228773,00.html

Things are falling into place for my move. I fly there on July 6th to look for apartments and to hopefully have some job interviews lined up. I can't believe how quickly it's coming up! I'm in the process now of applying to various school districts as well as finding a certification program. God is continually putting people in my path who are helping me in this transition. It's so exciting!


So, my sister sent me the cutest birthday present. I open the box and inside there is a stuffed hippo that she bought at the San Diego Zoo. She is so creative. When she and my mom came to visit me in December, we took a trip to Animal Kingdom. One of the best rides is the Safari thing and as we passed by the hippo pools, I commented, "Wow, those hippos are so fat!" The "tour guide" didn't appreciate that very much and replied, "They aren't fat, they're fluffy!" Now I have a memento of that. She cracks me up, my sister not the hippo. The hippo just kind of sits there.
I finally got the cd player my sister gave me installed in my car. I can't even begin to tell you the difference. I can't wait to get into my car now! It's amazing! It will definitely help on that 18 hour drive to Dallas in a month and a half...

So, I'm moving to Dallas. It's a crazy big step for me, but one I am reading to make. I have been wanting to move there for a long time to fulfill my dream of attending Dallas Theological Seminary to get my Masters of Bibical Counseling. It all came about so suddenly. I mean, I've been praying about this for a long time but just didn't feel any real direction from the Lord to start pursuing it. Then, one day about a month or so ago, my roommate and I found out that our apartments are being converted into condos, meaning that there would be no option for renewal. I started looking for apartments when it hit me..."why am I staying in Orlando?" I know I have a great church and lots of wonderful new friends, but staying here is not getting me closer to fulfilling the purpose God has for my life. So, I'm moving to Dallas. Now, just getting all the details in order to make the move...
