Stress and then some


The past few weeks have been pretty intense.  My demands as a teacher, coach, and human being have been insane.  I have come to the conclusion that I need to make time to relax or I’m going to have a stroke before age 30.

That’s the “short” of it.  For details, read on:

So much has happened


As my subject line implies, so much has happened since my last update.

First of all, EK asked me to marry him on July 9th around 11:00PM.  I, of course, said yes.  I love this boy more than anything and I cannot wait to plan our wedding.  We are thinking fall, primarily October 2013 as our tentative date.  My wedding day pins on pinterest have increased as I search the site daily for cheap, wedding day ideas.  I have so much I want to do!  I have my bridesmaids picked out already but that’s going to be a surprise.  We’re thinking of a wedding party of 6, three attendants each.

Wedding Weekend


We went to Steven & Alyssa’s wedding in De Pere, WI this weekend.  Alyssa looked gorgeous and the ceremony and reception was beautiful.  I’m so happy for both of them.  There were a ton of people there so I don’t have a ton of pictures with the bride and groom but here are some pictures of EK and I.  I enjoyed cutting loose on the dance floor with my favorite white boy nerd ❤  Anyhow, our weekend is best told in pictures. I apologize ahead of time for the cell phone quality pics.  I forgot my camera.

On the Road!

Outfit and Hair (I was nervous because I had to do a reading in front of a TON of people)

No salon for this gal!  I did it myself 🙂

My hot date and I:

EK looked very dapper in his Hawaiian attire (ps, his entire outfit minus the shoes were found thrifting):

Steven, Alyssa, and Myself:

A little while after lunch I was feeling incredibly worn out so EK suggested I go take a break in the car and see if I could rest. I had gotten some sun and wasn’t feeling well. But of course, I had to document the occasion, because honestly, only EK and I would take a “car nap” at a wedding:

Night Night!


Oh, and then there was one of these:
