twinkle lights and mochas

...So Justin and I are house sitting for some family this weekend and they have so many candles, lanterns and twinkle lights! I think its so romantic and cozy and relaxing having the different lights instead of using full house lights all the time... plus they have a hot tub with little twinkle lights so that's amazing all on its own! I think we're getting a better deal out of it than they are :)

i went shopping on saturday, i'm getting down to the bare minimum on our wedding gift card money, having gift cards to target and bed bath and beyond has been such a blessing! But anyway i found an adorable cupcake stand and a beautiful glass pitcher at cost plus world market. Plus I got two pillows at bed bath and beyond...but we haven't gotten to the best part yet, so i'm shopping and all of the sudden i see Justin's mom! (Justin was working) so they (Justin's parents) invited me to have lunch with them and i had a wonderfully ditzy moment and I locked my keys in my car! painful but true...luckily they were there to rescue me, (next time there will be a hide-a-key on my car!) and i ended up getting a raspberry white mocha out of it all (my favorite!)so the moral of the story is...if you lock your keys in your car, its ok! ...just chill out and have mocha :)

happy Friday!!

i just finished my first week of full time student teaching in kindergarten...i can't believe it! A week ago today I didn't know if I could do it, I was planning on having a meltdown, and I was secretly hoping for a way out! but seven days later and I'm still alive :) (tired, but alive) :)
ten things that helped:
1) prayer--I couldn't have done it without God's help and all of the prayers that people sent up for me
2) Justin--he listened and loved and laughed with me through the crazy week
3) smiles--from the students whose lives I've touched and who have touched mine
4) sweet dreams and sleep on flannel snowflake sheets :)
5) my pink coffee cup (creamer? check, coffee? check, more creamer? check)
6) cell phone to talk to my mom, dad, sister and others who wished me well
7) umbrella for Tuesday when it poured right as school got out!
8) my I.A. who prepped, helped, and kept me sane during the day!
9) chocolate from the staff room mmmmmm!
10) cozy candles lit for relaxing after the loonng day!
