Throw Back to the 80s!

Last weekend Kate Mavis (soon to be Greene) had her bachelorette party in Chicago. We decided to hit the town in 80s high fashion. The mission in the week leading up to the party was to find the "best" 80s bridesmaid dress possible. We were also able to find a lovely 80s wedding dress number for Kate! The dress was actually the last gift Kate opened and then the party began! As part of the getting ready festivities we went to town on hair, makeup, dress alterations, and drinks. Enjoy the pictures and may I suggest...keep this in mind if you are throwing someone a bachleorette party. A GREAT time was had by all!

Back to Schooooool!!!

It's that time of year again! Time to buy school supplies, get new "teaching" clothes, and prepare to impact children's educational paths for the next 39 weeks.The funny thing is I think I get as excited about new Sharpies every year as my students do for new pencils and backpacks.
Matthew and I have spent the last few days getting our classrooms as well as our attitudes ready for another school year. It's hard to get back in gear after having so much time off. I know we should be grateful because people with "real" jobs only get a few weeks a year...but still! When consulting Matthew on this blog update his only statement was, "School's starting, life sucks."
