High Five for Friday

1. 4 Family Christmases! 
Nothing says the holidays like spending a little time with everyone!

2. You know you're an adult when your favorite Christmas gifts involve a laminator, drawers, and clothes...

3. Starting Bones and loving it!
I may or may not be halfway through season 1 already...

4. Finding a simple and awesome bread recipe.
I will for sure be making that a lot more!

5. Christmas Break! 
Yay for one more week!

High Five for Christmas Break!

I love Friday! It's a chance to relax and get caught up on all the things I ignored during the week. 
This Friday I'm especially excited!
It's the last Friday of the school year. Hello, Christmas Vacation!
I definitely appreciate Christmas break as a teacher more than I did as a student. 
I can't wait to sleep in, celebrate Christmas, celebrate our 1st anniversary, and spend time with family.

1. One of the things to do on Kyle's countdown was to go see The Hobbit. 
He has been talking about this movie for over a year. 
Friday night, Kyle came home with matching shirts for us to wear to the movies. 
Yes, we were that dorky couple all dressed up for the movie. 
You know it's bad when the people you go with think it's dorky!
It really was a good movie though!

2. On Saturday, my beautiful best friend asked me to be her Matron of Honor. 
She was my Maid of Honor and I couldn't be happier to celebrate this wonderful occasion with her!

 3. Later that same day I got to go dress shopping with her. 
I never went dress shopping for my own wedding so I had a lot of fun experiencing it with her. 
She tried on dresses in practically every style. 
Don't worry, this wasn't one of her top ones!

 4. There is a light show right down the street from us that I had been wanting to do to. 
The park has done it for as long as I can remember, but I couldn't tell you the last time I went. 
Kyle works at the same park so we were able to go for free. 
I enjoyed being able to experience it, but I wouldn't pay as much as they ask to do it!

5. Rocking my Gator PJs to work today. 
Be Jealous!
The whole school is wearing pajamas and doing a Polar Express Day!
It should be a ton of fun and a great send off for break!
