Corey and I are home from Hawaii!!! We've actually been home since Sunday morning. It was the most amazing trip ever. Everything was beautiful, the scenery was unbelievable, the food was amazing, and everyone was welcoming and kind. We had so much fun. I have to admit, though, I was happy to see the Manhattan skyline out the plane window. Only because I missed Riley so terribly much, though. If he had been with us I don't think we would ever have come home!
I have really enjoyed re-living our special day as our friends and family post pictures on Facebook. It really couldn't have been more perfect. Here's a little sneak peek that showed up on our photographer's Facebook page...
I'm also headed to the social security office to change my name and then to the district office at work so they can get everything set up for my class with my new name. I'm also up to lots of lesson planning and preparations for the new school year. I'm super excited to be teaching 3rd grade this year but even though I student taught in 3rd, the standards are different so I'll need to do some extra prepwork as I plan my lessons.
I've spent some time chatting with my friends. We've all been looking forward to the wedding events as a reunion for so long since we don't all get to be together as much as we like. The wedding weekend went by so quickly so there's still so much catching up to do!
Corey, Riley, and I have just been trying to get settled in back at home and getting back into the swing of things. I'm trying to get our apartment back to normal - which is squeaky clean and perfectly organized, which is really tough now that we have more stuff.
I also made a little shopping trip to pick this up for Corey yesterday.
I also did a little back to school shopping. I wore pretty relaxed clothes to work last year, nice t-shirts and chinos or target dress pants because a lot of my clothes got ruined in Kindergarten. I have a few nice teacher dresses and blouses from when I taught first in South Carolina but I really needed to spruce up my wardrobe. There were some awesome sales going on so I picked up a couple new blouses from Loft, Ann Taylor, and Banana Republic. Then, I couldn't resist ordering this scarf from Lilly Pulitzer:
I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things here in on blogger. Happy Thursday lovelies!
