We had a busy weekend around here! Everyone was in town for my sister's baby shower & we also celebrated my birthday! My sweet best friend Melissa even came over with my parents to spend my birthday weekend with me & help with the shower! The shower went great and Anna got so many sweet gifts for baby Hagen! After the shower we went to cookout at Ty's house for my birthday as well as his dads! His dads birthday is the day after mine so we usually have a joint party. I realized how old I was getting when the party fizzled down about 8pm. Whoo hoo! Apparently thats happens when you turn 25, huh? ;)

Sunday we did a little shopping & then had Sunday night spaghetti dinner at my cousins house! Love seeing all my family!!!!

When I got home last night I did not like how quiet it was. I absolutely love having everyone here filling up all the beds and sleeping in random places around the house. I can tell already that when I have my own house I am going to LOVE having guests. I loved walking in my bathroom last night finding 5 towels hanging anywhere & everywhere. I loved finding 10 water bottles in my room half empty. I am such a people person and love having people here.

The weekend sadly ended & Monday came with a bang. For starters, i spilled white out all over my new black pants this morning at school. It wouldn't come off so I had to walk around all day with two white spots on my thighs. And they might be ruined...,I have treated them & washed them and the stain is still there. :( if you have any ideas, please share!!!

Tonight I spent $9 on 2 bottles of nail polish. This is not like me. I buy the cheapest stuff out there, but I had been to 3 stores looking for something for my kids binders and had no luck so I thought I deserved a present. A "back to school" present if you will. :)

Ps- im completely obsessed with coral & turquoise! Anyone else?

End of summer

My summer is officially over (as of yesterday) and I was weirdly excited to go back today. Excited for routine, a new year, a new grade, to see my babies again (I am keeping the same class), excited for fall & football, and the list goes on. I love summer and I love that my job allows me to still have one but a new school year is exciting! This summer was the best one I've had in a long time. If you've been following my blog for awhile, you know I had a rough first two years after I graduated. I lost my first job, and willingly left my 2nd job...which means I looked for a job 3 straight summers in a row. This was the first summer I actually got to relax and not have to worry about finding a job. I thoroughly enjoyed this summer and am so thankful to have had that time off. But it's back to work for me now! The kids come back next Monday and we have a full week of teacher workdays this week.

Here are some pictures of the end of my summer:
