A Party, A Dress, and My House Not a Mess

That pretty much sums up my weekend.

Aint Mondays grand when you have the week off work?  I’d say.  And after what turned out to be a pretty relaxing weekend, I am ready for a week filled with fun and festivities!  

Winter break started Friday when we left school and I wasn’t staying a minute late.  See, I had to move every piece of furniture out of my classroom because they are re-tiling our floors so there was very little that I could do workwise anyway.  It seemed much more logical to do cartwheels across the classroom and leap in jubilee.  So much room for activities!! 

That night we got straight to celebrating at the BRC Holiday Party.  It was like a high school reunion even more so than any of my actual high school reunions because you actually want to look nice and try to impress everyone you haven’t seen in years.  Thanks to social media, I could not claim invention of the post-it, but I decided my life turned out cool enough as it is.  So we caught up with old friends, danced, drank, and enjoyed the atmosphere in the stadium.  The weather was even beautiful outside so we were able to take some field shots without freezing our booties off.

My love and I

Best friends!

Uniforms of the past were all on display.

DJ Kopec doin' his thing!

Fuzzy bathroom selfie.  I really need a new phone!

Apparently I'm a little overbearing in the photobooth.  Ha!

On Saturday something very exciting happened.  I wasn’t expecting it at all, but I got my wedding dress.  It is so beautiful and I can’t stop looking at pictures of it.  I’d love to show you, but I don’t want my fiance to see it.  The only thing I can tell you is that it does not look like any of these.  

And that’s really all I’ve got.  We were supposed to tailgate for the Raven’s game yesterday but didn’t end up going because they were calling for thunderstorms all afternoon.  Didn’t end up happening of course, but how were we to know?  At least I had time to get my disaster of a house somewhat organized!  Well, off to run some last minute errands and hopefully start wrapping some gifts before more holiday plans tonight! Happy Christmas Eve Eve everyone!
