I cannot believe school is about to start! I feel like I just got out! It was a very difficult summer - being let go from the job I LOVED, getting over the fact that I won't see those precious friends everyday, and trying to find another job - which is a job itself. I didn't really get to ENJOY my summer because I was constantly worried about my job search but I did have a good summer. I am so thankful to have this job and I cannot wait for the kids to come! I have been working in my classroom alot lately and it is almost done! It is nothing compared to the work I did last year to set up for my 1st grade room. However, just because I am teaching 6th, doesn't mean my room can't be cute, right? :) I will post pictures when I am all done. :)

Well, Ty's birthday was wonderful. We spent the whole day at the lake and had an awesome steak dinner after playing all day. We also made a "25" out of cupcakes for him and made homemade ice cream. For his birthday, I got him a floating cooler that looks like a fishing bobber and I filled it with water, gatorade, a Boston shirt, and an Auburn shirt. He said he liked it so I think I did pretty good! :) I can't take credit for the cute idea though, I stole it from my cousin Emily! Here is a picture of the cooler from Academy's website:
Isn't it cute?
All in all, I think he had a great birthday! He isn't that hard to please so the lake was all he wanted.:)

We finally found him an apartment today! We have driven around this town so many times calling every reality place imaginable! Noone would give him a 5 month lease (he is graduating in December) so I am so glad someone finally did!! I think he gets to move in on Friday!

I hope everyone is having a great week! Oh and Scentsy is about to come out with their Fall/Winter catalog!!! It has some great new products in it so stay tuned for more information! Also, they have FINALLY added Alabama and Auburn Warmers!!!!! :) They are super cute, let me know if you would like me to email you a picture of either one.
