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.
The Wedding Party (below):

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 photo...how did that happen?!?
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!!!

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!

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!!!

Today is my beautiful wife's 25th birthday! I am very sad though as she is on a plane heading to Southern California. The lucky girl gets to go to Las Vegas! I know she will have a great time but wish that I was able to spend the day with her. Happy Birthday, my love. I already miss you and you have only been gone an hour! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!
