I'm Andrea, and this is my personal blog. Thanks for being here! I usually post on Fridays and Sundays, when I share something that makes me happy or a spiritual thought for the week. Sometimes I manage to squeeze in another post or two.

Feel free to leave a comment--I'd love to hear what you have to say! You can also reach me at teachmetowalk [at] hotmail [dot] com.

General Conference Is Coming Up!

[Image by Knut, via Wikimedia Commons]
"The living prophet is more important to us than a dead prophet. The living prophet has the power of 'TNT.' By that I mean 'Today's News Today.' God's revelations to Adam did not instruct Noah how to build the ark. Noah needed his own revelation. Therefore, the most important prophet, so far as you and I are concerned, is the one living in our day and age to whom the Lord is currently revealing His will for us."

-President Ezra Taft Benson

Be Awesome Instead

I've probably posted this before, but I'm seriously thinking about making it my official motto. Because my life needs less sad and WAY more awesome in it. Happy Friday!

They Say It's Your Birthday!

Today is not Friday. It's Thursday. But I'm posting something silly anyway.

Because besides being Thursday, today is also my brother's birthday! I know, it's like all-birthdays-all-the-time around here lately.

Sooo...in honor of my brother, Thane, turning really really old, here's a funny little song. [Please ignore Ringo. He apparently doesn't like birthdays.]

Happy birthday, brother!

Fingerprint Shamrocks

...in the dark!

Just kidding--I forgot that I had the flash on when I took this photo. I promise that we were doing this craft in the middle of the afternoon, with the blinds open and everything.


We're on a home school break this week, doing all kinds of Irish-y things. (I stole our schedule from Megan--we school year-round, with a break every few weeks, and I try to make the breaks fall just before a holiday so we have time to do holiday stuff.)

This wee little craft is pretty simple--just make green fingerprints for the shamrock leaves and use a green pen to draw the stems. I made a shamrock with four leaves first, and Little Boy went along with it for a few minutes, but then he informed me that shamrocks have three leaves and he made only three-leaved shamrocks after that. So there.

When We Know Who We Are

[Photo by Eustaquio Santimano]
"When we know who we are and what we are supposed to do, it is easier to make important decisions about education, careers, and marriage. It is easier to shine our light in our families, with our friends, and in all other places."

How's Your Friday?

It's Friday!

And sometimes, even though it's Friday...things don't go so well.

So, if your Friday isn't going so well--or even if it is [mine's going just fine, thanks]--here are some ideas to make it better:

Happy Friday!

Humanities, Blah, Blah, Blah...

[The ever-so-interesting class textbook.]
Just thought y'all should know--I'm starting my next Independent Study class tonight, and I really want to get this one over with quickly.

It's a humanities class, and I usually like humanities classes...but this one...I don't know. We'll see. Anyway, I'll probably be blogging even less than I already am.

But sometimes saying, "Haha, I'm not going to blog for awhile!" just inspires me to blog more...so I might be totally lying to you.

And I'll still be reading blogs--I always read them, even if I don't comment on them. So I'll see you around.

Efficient Andrea is Efficient

Sooo....I've had a crazy couple of weeks. Including, but not limited to:

~traveling to an out-of-state funeral (which was beautiful, by the way).
~going to the zoo.
~catching up on everything that I missed while at the funeral and zoo (not at the same time), which has taken almost a week. Yeah, I'm efficient like that.

Anyway, it's Friday. So here's a video of a cat who is just as efficient as I am:

And yes, the cat does the same thing over and over for three minutes. You don't have to watch the whole thing.

Happy Friday!
