It did!

Slow down, I mean. I can handle the rest of the week from here. (Piece of cake!!)
4 hours of school, 9-ish hours in the car, then I get to see Dave! Also Michelle, Ed, and the babies. Hopefully Julie but she's going on vacation too and I don't know when she flies out.

Yippeee! :)
Here I come!!
(Starting Sunday)

SLOW down!!

It would be awesome if life could just slow down for a minute.
This week...
  • Looking for a house (and everything that goes with that), whew.
  • Last week of the marking period (all of my stacks of papers have to be graded. shoot.).
  • Can't get the wedding off my mind :) I should be thinking about other things but it's hard.
  • Packing for the big trip
  • Driving 9 hours on Friday and I then get to see Dave!!!! He's busy redoing his roof this week - sunup to sundown. I wish I was down there helping (not sure what I could do but...).
  • The kids are just as ready to be on spring break as I am.
  • Whew!
  • Whew.
  • It's almost April.

After just having ideas for our wedding swirling around in my mind for the last week and a half, I now have some actual progress on the plans! I found my dress yesterday and the bridesmaids' dresses, decided on flowers and a bunch of other stuff.

I had help from my sisters, mom, and some friends and that made it so much fun! It was just a (long) relaxing day, figuring out wedding stuff.

My sister Heidi and I are going to the Caribbean in a week! I've been so busy thinking about wedding stuff I haven't really thought about this vacation and now it's only a few days away. :)

March 9th

We're engaged!!

My mom and sisters put together a quick "engagement party" for Dave and me on Tuesday while we were out telling other family and friends. We came home to this... what fun!

Yes :)

Dave and I are engaged!!!

Tuesday evening he came back early and surprised me (wasn't supposed to be back until Friday) and on top of that, he brought a ring with him. :)

July 2nd is the big day!

Making it through (Flashback!!)

I was in the middle of writing this post when Dave showed up and surprised me with an engagement ring :) it was saved in my drafts folder. 

In all of my experience (haha), March is the toughest month to be a teacher. It's been over two months since we had a day off and spring break is still a few weeks away. I need a break and the kids need a break. Yesterday was a very trying day. I think I wanted to quit three times and we even had a "fun day" in the afternoon. That meant no class from 11:15 until the end of the day. We got to play hockey, swim, play basketball, workout, play volleyball, etc instead.
