Friday Favorites || Back to School and a Wedding!

Friday, August 21, 2015

ONE: After college I always thought how sad it was that I wouldn't get to hangout with my best friends all day, everyday. We all went our separate ways to our own jobs and own lives. That was until this year!

My best friend is teaching at my school, meaning I get to see her face every single day of the week!! I never knew how giddy I'd be to work with my best friend until it became a reality. Now, not only do I want to go to school to see the kiddos, now I want to go to see my friend! It is just the best feeling, ever.

TWO: Back to school clothes shopping is in full force. Since we aren't cooling off here in Texas, I feel like long sleeved dresses are the best transition pieces. At first, when the temps are still high, you can pair the dress with flats, but at it cools down you can easily transition to boots and tights. Also, my obsession with sweaters is ramping up because sometimes our classrooms can be freezing! Cowl necks have always been my favorite!

THREE: My classroom is finally looking less like a dump and more like a place where students can learn. We had Meet the Teacher last night and I was smitten the whole night. Teachers get just as excited as the kids. They are just precious!!

FOUR: My sister-in-law gets married tomorrow!! You might remember her engagement like it was yesterday, but that was all the way back in February (insert wide-eyed emoji). I am so excited to see all the planning come to fruition...and I am still figuring out how to crash their honeymoon in Hawaii. Ideas are welcome :)

FIVE: My family is coming in to town for the wedding, so how can I not be excited to have our whole family together the weekend before school starts? I can't think of a better way to officially end my summer break of 2015.

Linking up with  NarciAndrea and Erika for Friday Favorites!
