Hi, Y’all!!

Hey! I am participating in Jenna’s Journey Commenting Challenge this year. Welcome to my little blog!

My name is Stephanie… I’m 26 years old, married to Stephen, and mommy to cutie-pie Christopher, who will be three in August. I live in a little town in Western Arkansas.  I just graduated from college last month. I’ve been in and out of college since I graduated high school in 2004. It was after my son was born that I decided I had to go back and finish my degree, as working as an associate at Walmart was not going to cut it for me or my family. So I spent two long, hard years commuting back and forth from Arkadelphia, Arkansas, (a 4-hour round trip commute) and finally finished up my BSE (education) degree last month.  I am now in the process of trying to find a teaching job! (You can scroll down a few entries to see my graduation post.)

My husband and I both love to travel, play games, have a good drink, and spend time with our families. We play cards with my parents on a weekly basis and my brother Tyler and sister-in-law Britney are our best friends.

My husband works at the local newspaper, but he is also in the process of finishing his degree – also in education. We’re looking forward to both finding teaching jobs and seeing what the next chapter of life brings us… we’re up for just about anything!

Thanks for visiting!
