The Weekend

In case you missed it from my many many mentions of it last week........ today is the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!! And my mind keeps flipping between these two scenes:

But I'm pleased to report that my classroom is ready and my outfit is picked out and I'm ready to tackle the first day back with 130 students!  I plan to share my classroom later this week and I am super excited to do so.  

So the weekend passed very quickly.  I had an exciting Saturday and a relaxing Sunday.  So all in all it was pretty good.  

Here were the highlights:

- Friday night was a quiet night.  Where I ate the strangest mix of foods for dinner, it included coleslaw, mac and cheese, lobster crab bisque, a small tomato and avocado salad, and a spoon full of cookie butter.  All in small portions.  Still totally random and weird.  

- Friends was watched Friday night, Saturday night, and all day Sunday.

- Saturday I went up to school and put the finishing touches on my classroom and got some of the paper work side of teaching together and ready to go.

- My good friend Ashtyn and I took a trip to the Houston Holocaust Museum.  I had been wanting to visit the museum since I heard that Houston had one and it was incredibly moving.  The creators of the museum have done a phenomenal job.

- Dinner at a favorite Mexican food restaurant.

- Watched one of my all time favorite movies from the 1950s, Gidget.  Makes me wish I lived in the 50s in California.

- Printed out 112ish Instagram pictures at Walgreens.  Some are going up in my classroom, but the majority of them are for a Pinterest project I have been meaning to re-create for my bedroom and am finally going to do.

-Made a list of goals I want to accomplish this year as far as teaching goes.  Which I will be sharing along with my classroom on Wednesday.

-Reminisced about the amazing summer I had via Instagram.

And that's a wrap for my weekend!  It was a perfect ending to the summer.  I'm really excited for tomorrow but also have the usual first day of school nerves.  Fingers crossed I can sleep tonight! :)

Here's hoping it's a great year!

Linking up with Biana!
