A Walk In The Park

Today is my last day of Mardi Gras break from school and from student teaching... I'm not wanting it to end!!!  It's been so nice sleeping a little later in the mornings and having time to clean house and having time to spend with my hubby during the day.

Justin and I have been trying to go to the gym everyday.  I am so out of shape that I can't do much.. mainly just walk/jog on the treadmill for 20 minutes.  That's beside the point.. the point is that today instead of going to the gym, we went to Kiroli Park.  There are alot of walking trails there, and I figured it would be wayyyy more fun to walk outside and see new things than on the treadmill staring at a TV.  Plus, it was a beautiful day outside today!

I took the camera just in case..  I made Justin run out into a field so I could snap a picture of how GREEN that grass was.  I haven't seen grass that green in a while.  Everything is brown and dead looking.


After the walk, we decided to swing a little bit.  And Justin did tricks.CIMG2355 CIMG2354 CIMG2352

We had a good time.  And some good conversation.  Neither Justin or myself are big talkers.  We can just sit together in silence or with music or whatever and be just fine without talking.  We've even noticed ourselves riding in the car and not speaking for extended periods of time.  And we are okay with that.  It's just who we are.  But I really do enjoy the times when we really talk.  Not just small talk, but deep stuff-- life stuff, God stuff, future stuff, personal stuff.

Today we made one definite decision about our future/my education.  I have been considering going to nursing school after I finish my education degree this May.  I really think I would enjoy nursing and the money would be much better than what I'll make teaching.  Today, though, we decided to wait on that.  We would rather focus the money that it would take to pay for school on things like growing our family and investing in a larger house.  Needless to say, I'm EXCITED!


I'm also excited about my niece's 1st Birthday Party tomorrow!  I'll definitely be posting pictures of that very soon!
