Weekend Recap: Mother's Day Edition

Monday, May 9, 2016

Happy Monday, y'all!  I'm definitely counting down the days until school is out for the summer, and after today, I've only got two more Mondays left!  Two more!  Isn't that crazy to think?!  

I took a little blog hiatus last week on Thursday and Friday--my weekend felt like it started on Thursday because I had a concert that night I went to with Janie (I'll blog about that tomorrow).  


 I love this text from my friend Hailey (and we are also teaching partners!).  She texted Friday morning afraid that I didn't make it home from the concert.  I laughed and had to screen shot it!

 We had Battle of the Classes Friday at school and my homeroom chose to wear neon colors.  It was a really fun day!

 I received this gorgeous cookie and sweetest, personalized thank you note from a student for Teacher Appreciation Week.  Isn't this the most beautiful cookie you've ever seen?!

And Friday after school, I went home, showered, and slept.  I only got 3.5 hours of sleep Thursday night/early Friday morning plus playing at Battle of the Classes, so I was beyond exhausted!  As in, I was so tired that I didn't even eat supper.


Saturday was so fun!  I ran sprint intervals that morning, and Dustin and I went shopping.  We shopped for clothes for our upcoming cruise this summer and Costco for a few random items.

Then that night he had our families (minus my sister, BIL, and dad who were at a concert and my stepdad who was at a cattle sale) meet us at my favorite Mexican restaurant to celebrate my graduation!

He also surprised me with my favorite cake!!


 We had lunch to celebrate Dustin's mom!

And supper to celebrate my mom!
