Five for Friday

1. I’ve done a little work since on summer break…..these editable Snacks and Sweets awards! Click here if you want a chance to win your own free copy!

2.  I saw a double rainbow yesterday!! My first one ever- guess there is a little good after all the storms 🙁

3. I have been knee deep in wedding planning, apartment hunting, and job hunting! If you read my blog, I remember posting a really long rant but right now things are looking a little bit up (I don’t want to jinx anything!)  The patience thing has worked out so far for me. Hair ideas? Gotta love Pinterest.

4. I WALKED! As in my other teacher friend and I started our workout routine at the local track that the high school built.  I’m excited to stay in somewhat ok shape for the wedding.

5. Well grad school starts on Monday 🙁 …..ahhhh…3 classes, 8 weeks, marriage in 6 along with honeymoon….organizational skills need to be at their peak! Good thing, I didn’t take a full time summer job.  All in all- great things ahead this summer.  Hopefully I’ll get to relax a little too.

    Wow – you sure like to keep things busy! Then again, we survive in a classroom of little people, so anything else in life seems quite manageable!

    a wedding, moving, job hunting, and grad school all at once. That is insane and I wish you the best of luck with it all.

    Hi Amber! LET ME TELL YOU….I get it!! Haha. I too am in that same life stage of moving, job hunting, wedding, big changes! I just finished grad school last year. It's such an exciting time but also very scary sometimes! I don't know where you live, but I live in New York and the jobs in NYS are few and far between. I have to remind myself that everything happens for a reason and your dream classroom is out there waiting for you!! Good luck with all of your life changes!

    Great candy awards! Also, all the best in grad school this summer. It is a long road, but so worth it in the end… Just found your blog today and am a new follower. I will be back to read future posts…
