The countdown is on. In only 3 weeks, school will be OVER. Can I get an amen?? This last quarter of the year has seemed long to me and I am very ready for a break. And I am sooo excited that we are almost there!! Blogging has kind of taken a backseat lately for me. Hopefully this summer I am going to have much more time to devote to it, but for now, I am just going to hit the high spots...
1-These last few weeks have been really stressful for me at work, so I decided Friday that I needed a mental health day and I took one! And it was so great. I slept in and then Laura and Lindy and I went to one of our favorite little local restaurants called Cajun Yard Dog for lunch. They have the best fried catfish and blackened salmon and gumbo and stuff like that. It was delicious.
Then we went to see Letters To Juliet. I liked it alot. It is a cute "chick flick" and sweet.
This weekend was just what I needed. Feeling a little bit better now!
2-We are spending lots of time outside right now. Steve has been working so hard in the yard and it is really looking great.
He planted a hydrangea for me in our backyard a few weeks ago since it is probably my very favorite flower! It won't be long before it starts blooming. Yay!
I even do my schoolwork outside!
Rocky loves to be with us out on the porch. He thinks he is a person, y'all!
Today Steve and I got to play tennis for the first time in a long time. That was fun!
3-Steve and I went to Lowe's yesterday and I saw this book.
Have you ever seen it? While he was looking all over the store, I had a chance to browse through it and it has the CUTEST ideas!! I need to have a party or something so I can make some of these adorable things.
We recently had a County Fair in my class to celebrate the end of reading Charlotte's Web and one little girl brought these popcorn cupcakes from the book to enter for a blue ribbon.
Aren't they cute?
4-We have been making some fun summer plans. We had thought about going out to California, but that doesn't look like it's going to work out. So, we have decided to go up to the Northeast....like Boston and NYC and Baltimore and maybe Washington.
We will also go to Florida for sure since we love it down there and usually go several times a year.
And Steve and I have our 25th anniversary coming up in August, so we are still debating about what we want to do for that.
What are your summer plans??
I am so jealous of everyone who is already out of school! I am trying to just hang in there and make these last few weeks really fun and positive. I know the end will be here before I know it.
