Some Updates

*With a new kitten in the house and an increasingly busy schedule, I have barely had time to be on the computer at all. I haven't had time to read many blogs and I completely let my farm go!! (Any other Farmvillers out there??) Trying to keep blogging most days though, b/c I know if I stop for awhile, I might fall completely off the blogging wagon! And I've blogged almost every day since December, so I don't want that to happen :-) It is nice to be busy again, though. I feel productive, and like I'm DOING something. I got sick of feeling so lazy during the summer. Having a set schedule REALLY helps me to stay motivated and organized.

*I've got an annoying stomachache today and am not feeling too well! I'm using it as an excuse to lie down and catch up on all the shows I've missed in the past week or two (The Biggest Loser, Project Runway, and America's Next Top Model later tonight). I still plan on going to Bible study later, though. It's our first night of really digging into the book, and I'm excited :-)

*In the afternoons I help teach a 5th grade English class. We are reading "Rudy" aloud to the kids. Today I had to read because the regular teacher was on the phone with the principal. The page I started reading just happened to be a very tragic, unexpected part that I didn't know about!! I've never seen the movie or read the book. So I stood there reading the rest of the chapter to the kids, trying to hold the tears back :-P If you've read it or seen it, you probably know what part I'm talking about. It's such a good book, and I can't wait to find out what happens next!

* Luke and I are going to have a busy weekend...he's recording with the band all weekend, and then we have a wedding to go to on Saturday night. So we're going to squeeze in a little dinner date on Friday night. I've been begging to go to Jalisco's for a really long time...I love Mexican! I finally bugged him enough that he agreed to it Friday night ;-) Mmmm, I can't wait!

*I held Ellie near Gabby today, and Gabby didn't hiss! This is the first time that has happened, so I think we're slowly making progress! She's still pretty mad at Luke and I for allowing an intruder to encroach upon her territory, though! But she's slowly turning back to her old self.

*The baking itch has struck again. I think it's because it's fall. While Luke's recording Saturday morning/afternoon, I plan on baking some pumpkin cream cheese muffins, like the ones from Starbucks. I found a recipe for them here. I may pick up a few more apples that morning too, b/c we can't seem to get enough of them! They're delicious with caramel dip :-)

And I think those are all the interesting/random things that are going on in the Wallace household these days :-) I hope your week is going great!


  1. I am all about Famrville!! Ha ha :) sorry to hear about your upset stomach. :( I'm sure everyone asks you if you are pregnant. If I even mention feeling sick everyone first asks me if I am pregnant!

  2. Are you going to Sam and Sarah's wedding? If so, have fun! We were supposed to go, but now Aaron will be going by himself because I have my first day of work. It sounds like it will be a beautiful wedding, after talking to Sarah.

    If you're not going to their wedding, ignore all I just said and have a fun time :D

  3. I've been nauseaus today, too. It must be from all the stress we're under.

  4. Marissa,
    Yeah, everytime I'm not feeling well everyone seems to jump to conclusions, too. But the reason I'm not feeling well is because of the exact thing that proves you're not pregnant. lol...hope that's not tmi.

    And Ashley...Yep, we're going to Sarah and Sam's wedding :-) Sarah is Luke's second cousin, and I was good friends with her in high school. I'm excited about it, b/c I haven't seen her in a really long I just love weddings anyway :-)

  5. I'm glad Ellie and Gabby are progressing! That's good. *grin*

  6. I hope you're feeling better today! Stomach aches are no fun.

  7. A friend got me hooked on Farmville. I was so sad to get on FB one day and see that my crops had gone to waste!! :P

  8. Hey girl! I am so behind on reading blogs so it was nice to read these updates! I love the new header! And yes, make those muffins! I made them (not that particular recipe, but a similar one) so many times last fall/winter! So delicious!!

  9. I guess with the last name, that makes sense! I think it will be a beautiful wedding, I'd love to see pictures if you take any...I can't rely on Aaron to take any.

    The ketchup bottle does make things a lot easier, you should check out that's where I got the idea from (and others I haven't tried out yet).

  10. I have been feeling the same way. I am soo busy now, and feel like ignoring blog world some days, but I know that if I'll do that, I probably end up stopping all together, and I don't want that either.
    And those cream cheese muffins sound delicious!


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
