Happy Wedding Rehearsal

This past weekend, we went down to Southern California for my best friend's wedding. I will post pictures of the wedding itself (when I get some), but until then - here are some pictures from the rehearsal!

Normally I put the pictures in order, but coming off a VERY LONG first week of school, I have no energy. The pictures below are in almost an opposite dinner.

Happy Baby Shower

Despite the fact that Allison was put on bed-rest a little over a week ago, she happily escaped from the house to gather with friends for her baby shower! Mr. Howard and I had the opportunity to drive out so that I could hang out with her for her shower, while the boys were able to get in a game of golf. As an added bonus, I spent the afternoon with Sara, catching up with her on all that has happened in the last year (wedding, first year of law school, and soo much more). It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday and it gave us an opportunity to spend more time with out friends than we normally get!! Unfortunately, however, upon leaving I realized I did not take a SINGLE did that happen?!?

Allison and Jack, we love you!

What a busy week

It seems as though it's been forever since last we talked!!

My summer officially ended last Monday with the beginning of the school year. It was an incredibly busy week, as we started on Monday and had kids and parents sitting in our classroom by Wednesday. Thursday and Friday I was in Southern California, while my kids had a substitute on the second and third day of school. I got back to school this morning to find my classroom in disarray and spent every free moment attempting to clean up and re-organize my classroom.

Wish me luck as I enter a new year, in a new grade, in a new district, with new students!!!

A Bachelorette Party Weekend

I happily turned over my 25th birthday this year to Jen, who is getting married in 9 days!!! As my husband mentioned, we went to Vegas to celebrate her Bachelorette Party in style.

We arrived by caravan on Friday to Mandalay Bay. After getting ready, we kicked off the weekend at Mon Ami Gabi for dinner and then The Bank for drinks and dancing.
On Saturday, we got up early and went to the Cabanas at the Venus Pools at Caesar's, where we were quite surprised to find that it was European Style Bathing (meaning topless). Of course, we learned a few things: (a) Not all people should go topless (b) No one is comfortable trying to sneak photos with strange men (c) "dry" means without bacon, cheese, tomato, or lettuce. After the pools, we headed over to the stores in Caesar's and then back to our hotel to get ready. In the evening, we went to Koi for dinner and Prive for drinks and dancing.

On Sunday, we packed up the car, headed to Starbucks and set off on our long journey home. Of course a journey home, wouldn't be complete without In-n-out and the Coach Outlets.I was on a plane and home to my hubby by 9pm Sunday evening!

Welcome Howard Pups

After my in-law's dogs passed away, they felt like their home was missing something. They debated whether or not to bring in a new family member, but knew it would make it difficult for them to travel and leave for short weekends. After a few years, they have finally decided to adopt a new pup to join their family. They think they will be adopting the puppy that is mostly white in the video below.

Welcome to the family Howard Puppy!!!
