Making Lancaster County Home

Wow! I don't think I have ever swiped my plastic so much in one month, as I have this past August! Moving from one state to another sure is an expensive business, especially when moving to Pennsylvania! There is a fee for everything in Pennsylvania! After spending lots of money getting my car and drivers license squared away, getting background checks done for all my new teaching jobs, and buying the everyday household items needed to furnish my studio apartment with, I am finally beginning to feel settled. I feel like up until now, I have been so occupied with running around to and fro, like a crazy person, trying to get everything accomplished before the school year starts where I will then finally officially start teaching on staff year-round with Silver Springs Dance Conservatory, and Cavod Academy of the Arts. I've been such a busy girl lately, and now I'm a broke one too! I have nothing left in my pockets but lint! I won't be leaving my home anymore this month, not for anything!!! Unless it is to leave to make more money somewhere. You can giggle because I am exaggerating (but only a little ☺) Times get tight sometimes, but I am happy.


"I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content WHATEVER the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through CHRIST who gives me strength."

- Philippians 4:11-13


It is good to be back blogging! Right now I am at the Barnes and Noble in town at the Red Rose Commons. It is not quite the same as the quaint Willie Morris Library on Jacksonian Plaza that I used to blog at all the time when I lived in Jackson MS. I guess I will have to find a new quaint place to blog at. I will have to check out the library here not far from where I live and let ya know how it is! I hope you like my "Weekend Whatevers" because here are 10 more for ya!

 1. I kinda wanna see this movie. ☺
2. Have you guys seen the new Ballet Magnificat website!? If not go check it out! It's updated and looks great!

3. I am so obssessed right now with Ben Platt's song Grow As We Go and it's video.
4. When things are tight, the first things I cut from my grocery list are the nonessentials such as chewing gum. I really miss this right now. haha. Take my word for it! This gum is the best tasting chewing gum you will ever taste in your whole life. It's like mint, but sweeter! It is hard to find but I can always count on Walmart to have it stocked. And did you check out the link? Amazon has it for less then 3 dollars! Who buys gum off Amazon?
5. Something else I am really missing right now is this. I am thankful for iheart radio that keeps me connected to "Hallellujah FM", my favorite radio station based in Jackson MS.

6. Has anyone ever heard of a "Noodle Board"? I had no idea what they were until I came across the concept on pinterest. Now I want one for my apartment! Especially this one on Etsy!

7. I love getting room sprays from Bath and Body Works. I went there the other day to get one for my new place and ended up trying a new one called Crisp Morning Air. It smells like a man, more than I initally thought. Not bad. If you like that sort of thing go check this out. I think I will get another scent next time.

8. This has yet to be publicized, but dear readers, I want you to be the first to get a load of this end-of-summer sale happening at LCDancewear for a limited time, while supplies lasts! All Shirt Skirts ordered in Tie-Dye are going on sale 30% off up until the last day of summer, September 22nd, so I'd get a jump on it if I were you! 
9. For anyone out there that loves to travel just as much as me, and loves saving a buck or two or lots more, you have to get this app I've just discovered! As described by google, "Hopper predicts flight prices with 95% accuracy up to 1 year in advance. No ads, no spam, no stress — just accurate predictions and the easiest way to book and save."

10. Lastly, I would like to leave you with this AMAZING note worthy quote I heard in church by David Dickson, “I have taken all my good deeds and all my bad deeds, and cast them … in a heap before the Lord, and fled from both, and betaken myself to the Lord Jesus Christ, and in him I have sweet peace!”

...Like I said things are finally starting to slow down a little for me...
before they pick up again I suppose. I only have one more week before I start 
teaching with Cavod and I am so excited about it! Most things have fallen into 
place quite well, though I am still trying to find a third job,
possibly a hotel front desk agent?! That is what I'm praying for anyway. 
I think I would be good at it and would meet lots of interesting people!
I guess we'll see!

I hope you liked those "Weekend Whatevers"!
