First Day of School

Today was my first day of school (kids have only been in school 4 days as of yesterday so I'm saying this is really great for me!)

Here's what I wore

I added some black flip flops to complete the look (because my nicer black sandals are still caked with dirt from when we did our engagement photos)

Hope all my teacher friends have had a successful first week back at it!

Five for Friday

I'm linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching once again to bring you another Five for Friday post.

About a month ago I shared with you what I had been up to this summer.. well here is some more of what I've been up to this summer..

Going to the lake.

John's parents own a cabin so that's usually the lake we go to.  Every September long my family has a family gathering at a different lake though... so we headed out that way last weekend.


I didn't end up catching a single fish this year.

Marriage Counseling.

We've been meeting with our pastor every couple of weeks and going through this book together.  One more meeting left and then it's practically wedding time!

For anyone who is debating on whether to do marriage counseling I would highly recommend it.  At the very least find a book for you to work through together. I found the book has a lot of questions that I wouldn't have even thought to talk about (until maybe it became an issue in the marriage)

Lots and lots of wedding planning.

According to our gift registry we only have 35 days left!

Horse Racing.

My sister got married yesterday in Hawaii (so only parents went) but for her bachelorette party we all got dolled up and stuck a big hat on our heads to go place some bets on some horses.  

My horse betting look

School started back up this week (which is apparently later than most) and my first day back in a classroom is on Monday (it will actually be multiple classrooms to cover meetings the teachers are attending).  It's at a school I frequented and I'm thankful I managed to get a couple of days within the first week back!

A Teacher Raps

I found a news article about this (under top news stories) teachers creative way to welcome his students to 4th grade.

I'm sure his students are just in awe of him.

Good luck Mr. Reed in your first year of teaching!

Five for Friday - More Wedding Stuff!

I'm linking up with Doodlebugs teaching for her weekly link up party this Friday!

A few weeks ago I told you about some stuff that I had been working on for our upcoming nuptials... well we are now down to just 2 months so things are pretty well planned...

The colours!

I can't believe I forgot to mention these in the last post!  The colours are Purple and Orange.

This is not our actual guestbook but it's how we got the idea for ours.


I haven't seen the silk mock up of the flowers but I'm sure it will look gorgeous.  I wasn't at all sure of what I wanted when I showed up to the florist... all that I knew was that our colours were purple and orange and my favourite flower was a calla lily.  You'll have to stay tuned for another couple of months to catch a glimpse of the actual flowers.

The rentals

So far all we've had to rent is the napkins.  I've got some purple ones ready and waiting!

The favours

Yes, we are giving out favours and in my opinion they are pretty great.  I REALLY hope people take them!

My goal was to have most of our wedding stuff done over the summer (it helps that I have a pool and friends that want to use it... they just have to commit to helping me with some wedding stuff afterwards!).  I have about 150 circles to cut our of cardboard (for our favours) that I'm aiming to get done before September starts... I'm sure there are still plenty of nice pool days left though!
