*I love the friends I've met via blogging (yea..that means you!). Seriously. You girls are the sweetest. All of you who complimented my (at first) scary haircut are awesome. I feel so much better, and I'm loving it now.
*The first week of teaching is bru-TAL. seriously. My throat hates me. My allergies are out of this world. I'm sick of talking...and we've only had 4 real days. Did I mention I forgot what exhaustion like that felt like after a leisurly-no-plans-most-the-time summer? sigh.
*I spent my day off (hallelujah) on Friday (after canceling my dentist appt, and possibly telling a fib as to why I couldn't make it--I hate the dentist!) with my mom and my sister. We had no real agenda other then have fun and SHOP. It was awesome. I got a gorgeous new purse, shoes, wallet, shirt and jeans all courtesy of my generous and awesome momma ;)
My new purse, for your mental picture
...and yes, I retired the coach bag, and feel it's acceptable. Until buying a new one is affordable, I feel pretty sassy with this one. No complaints at all.
A new pair of flats to add to my collection. FYI-the tattoo is healing just perfectly.
*My sweet sister, Susan (go check out her blog) is finally spending her birthday (sept. 8) in this country for the first time in 2 years. She's been in Zambia the last two birthdays! We're happy she's home, although it's bittersweet for her. We were able to throw her a fun get-together last night and had an awesome time. Cookout + s'mores + ice cream cake + fire pit + friends= fanfreakingtastic.
*I really think having Monday's off should be mandatory. Having every Friday off would be lovely too---but mainly just having Monday off is a must. Sunday's are oh so much better when you can treat it like a weekend-night, and not have to worry about getting our sore, tired bodies into bed.
*I asked my husband to guest post on my blog sometime...he doesn't seem even remotely interested right now, but I assured him you all would love it. Wouldn't you like to meet the man behind the photos? :) [hint: send love now]
*Happy Labor Day! To labor? or not to labor? I say--RELAX.
Love ya, girls.
