It's been way to long !!!

It has been forever since I have posted a blog....truth be told I have been so busy working on my Master's that my blog was pushed to the side.  So much has happened since my last blog!  I only have two more classess and will be FINISHED with my Master's.  I would not have made it without my partners...Lucinda, Donna, and Julie!!! Jon will be glad when I am finished also because without him helping around the house, I would never have made it...PLUS he likes the payraise when I complete my degree.  I can't believe that this school year is already half way over!! I have had a GREAT Christmas Break and an awesome New Year's!

My brother is now married to the love of his life.  They got married November 5 in Rogers, Arkansas and it was a beautiful wedding.  Congrats to the both of you....LOVE YOU BOTH 

The BEST part of all is that I am going to be an aunt, yes, one spoiled little rotten niece Jon and I will have.  I can't wait to spoil her :) They have picked Abigail Jewell as her name.......................
Congrats, but you know she will LOVE spending time with her Aunt Amber and Uncle Jon :) The best part will be spoiling her and then I can send her home; rotten as ever !!!

Well, hopefully I can manage it keep this blog updated better!!

Almost Back to the Real World

Well, my fellow teachers, I hope you are ready to get back into the grove of school.  I have enjoyed my summer vacation, how about you? I spent most of my summer working on my Master's Class and doing one of my favorites, swimming!!! I am not sure how I am going to be up and ready considering I have been sleeping in just a little bit :). I hope all the kiddos are ready for school, I have heard many parents so that they are ready for them to be back in school!

Enjoy the rest of the summer and can't wait to see everyone this next week!!

WHAT??? 2 YEARS :)

Today, Jon and I have been married for two years. WOW!!! We have had our ups and downs, good and bads, but most of all we have love for each other.  Sure, we get on each others nerves sometimes (of course. he gets on mine more, since I am perfect..haha). I got a Nook in Color for my anniversary, he can't keep things a secret when he buys them so I got it early...that is how we roll and of course, I had his gift early and figured since he gave me mine I should give him his, so I did.  I got him vent visors for his truck, he has been wanting them since he got his new truck.  I love the fact that I am married and that we love each other and continue to grow in our marriage.  We want to have kids, hopefully sooner than later, BUT we know God is in control and it will happen when it is supposed to. 

I always wanted to have a big wedding with lots of people to share my special day with...and with the help of family and friends that is what I had.  I had the best wedding a girl could wish for, my mom and dad made my day the BEST EVER!! Of course we had lots of family to help (I am fortunate to have family that helps out when needed) and what would I have ever done without my other "moms", Wendi and Christi.  Wendi has fixed my hair for EVERYTHING...from my first prom to my engagement pics to my wedding day.  Christi is always there to make sure things are done right and the correct decisions are correct! Christi was my wedding coordinator...fabulous of course!!! Our day was special because of all my family and friends that came to experience this awsome day with us, BUT it would not have been the same without my hero, MY BUBBA! Although we would fight and he gets on my nerves, he is always there when I need him.  I had to make sure that he was NOT going to be deployed that year because I was NOT going to get married unless my brother was there. Of course, I am glad that he met Britt and that she was part of that special day also.  She made ALL the bows (I think worked since Christmas to have them all made) and was there to help decorate, make floral arrangments. and make sure it looked amazing! She is pretty much an EXPERT (atleast she thinks she is..lol), but really she does have good taste and knows what looks good!

I have posted a few pictures that I had saved on my computer of our wedding day.....Enjoy !

Dad, me, and Mom

It was nice growing up knowing that "THE JOSH OWENS" was my big brother.  You see, I am not sure how he came up with referring to himself as that, but we let him believe that he was big and bad, so we let him refer to himself as "THE JOSH OWENS".  I know that we would fight and probably drive our parents crazy, BUT I could always lean on him.  I will never forget one day at school a boy (older than I was) confronted me about something that wasn't even his business...anyways and was very RUDE...needless to say I didn't back down, even when he told me he was going to push me across the hallway!!  I was so
proud of myself (although I thought Mrs. Brown was going to have a heart attack trying to calm us down in the hallway).  I went home and told Josh what I did, I thought he would be so proud of me and I know he was, but that night I realize that he put the fear in that boy...point is my brother is ALWAYS there for me.

His better half is pretty nice also...Brittany Vick! She has been around for a while now and is crazy as all get out.  She has done so much for us in just a short amount of time. I am not sure how we decorated the Christmas Tree or anything without her knowledge...JUST DON'T LET HER IN THE KITCHEN!!! If my brother can live off of mac and cheese and sweet tea then he has it made...but on a serious note thanks for always coming down and being a good sport when mom and I put you to work!!! Love ya :)

My brother is more than a brother...he is my HERO!!! He has been deployed twice and it was rough for all of us! Just wanted him to know that I LOVE HIM and so happy to know that he is ALWAYS there no matter what I need.  Sometimes he is there to tell me I am WRONG, but hey .... we all need someone like that!!

Me and My Hero !!!

Looking "cool" as always!!

The Family !!

Josh and Britt !!

I have enjoyed most of my summer BUT I have been so busy! I am working on my Masters in Education and Theory through Arkansas State University.  I will be so glad when I finish, May 4, 2012.  We haven't had much trouble with the classes but this last one was VERY time consuming...maybe that is because we finished a 5 week class in less than 3 weeks!! I have enjoyed not working this summer, but I do miss the extra money.  I have spent most of the summer that I haven't been with my girls working on class at the pool.  It is nice having an AWESOME AUNT BRENDA that has a pool and always welcomes me to it. 

I can't believe that in less than a month school will start back...teachers go back a week or so before the students.  Of course, teachers have professional development in the summer and we also have to work in our classrooms in order for them to be ready, so really we don't have ALL summer off. 

I am looking forward this year to a new class, however I did LOVE my class last year! I will be spending the next few weeks at the pool as much as possible because SCHOOL STARTS SOON!!!

Extreme Couponing

Ok...so I watched this show the other night and fell in LOVE with it.  Although, I would not buy 400 boxes of cat food or 200 things of yogurt, I would like to start saving money buy shopping smart.  I started this week by getting the Sunday Paper coupons and had both grandparents save them for me also....however, there wasn't much in there that we actually use.  I hope to get this under control this summer and learn how to do it correctly.  They say you can't be brand specific so this will be challenging for me...I remember my dad always says "It's has to be Heinz Ketchup, French's Mustard, Morton Salt, and so...If you have any pointers or websites that you would like to share with me or others, please feel free to post !!

I am so EXCITED to have a summer this year.  I have worked every summer that I can remember.  Growing up I kept my favorite lil girls...Megan, Morgan, and Haley.  Although, they are grown and I miss spending time with them, I am enjoying not having to work.  I also worked at Strohl's Flying Service since he started his own business, but this year Cindy is there so I get to chill at home.

I am going to school to get my Master's Degree so I study a couple days of week with the girls at school, but the rest of the time WILL be spent in the pool.

Aunt Brenda just opened her pool so today was the first swim of many this summer at her house.  Ashli, Chloe, and Allison came and joined me.  Chloe is so much fun this year and she LOVES the water.  Of course I had to get my camera out so you could see just home much FUN she was having.
