What I'm Loving

It's Wednesday! Halfway through the week...although I suppose it doesn't really matter now that us unemployed teacher folk are on summer break. Anyway, here's what I'm loving this week +  a photo dump all in one.

I'm loving that in just 4 days we will be leaving for our annual July 4 weekly vacation to the beach with my family.

I'm loving that I've gotten so much done for the wedding this week...I got my undergarments, my veil, shoes to wear after I kick my heels off, and we finished our registry. Tonight we have our first dance lessons! I've also fallen in love with a few hair styles.

I'm loving that I get to read so much during summer--I've already finished two books in less than two weeks! I laid in bed and read for about two hours this morning.
I'm loving that my sister and I had a girls' day yesterday. We grabbed lunch at a local brewery and then headed out to do wedding stuff. 

I'm loving that I've also done a lot of organizing this week...I tackled the master bathroom, my car, and my closet on Monday and also a few other random places. I found 8 pair of shoes and way too many clothes in my car when I cleaned it out.

I'm loving that I've started running again. I absolutely LOVE the Couch25k app on my phone...I'm in week 3 and can run 3 minutes without stopping (I's still terrible. But I'm getting there!). I've always loved to run but my metabolism bottomed out after college. womp womp. I was also able to run outside on Saturday. Although I didn't run as far--because my hip was NOT  fan of those hills I was running on. 

And finally, I'm loving that my best friend finally got married last weekend! She and her husband have been together since high school. It's so great to see them so much in love. Plus, who doesn't love a great excuse to dress up?

And of course, I'm always loving my sweet fiance.

What I'm Loving

Ya'll. I'm such a slacker. Time for a major life update/what I'm loving!

  1. First and foremost...I quit my job! I decided that I needed to to take some time off after this school year to get ready for the wedding. I thought I would be really excited to not have a job and have so much free time...turns out, I'm just really bored. I feel like I'm either sitting around the house watching TV/getting fat or out shopping and spending too much money. After much thought and consideration, I've decided to look for a job that will fit my schedule. I want to teach at Year Round school!
  2. Plans for the wedding are coming along swimmingly...I've taken care of a lot of things in the week and a half that I've been out of school. I applied for my passport, ordered the groom's cake, and purchased my shoes and dresses for my bridal shower and rehearsal dinner. 
  3. We scheduled a dance lesson! Neither Z nor I have very much rhythm, so we figured it would probably be a smart idea for us to get some guidance before we embarrass ourselves during our first dance.
  4. My best friend is getting married this weekend! I'm so excited. Although I'm not part of the wedding party, I still feel very much included. Jenn and I have gotten very close in the last few months. She'll be in my wedding in September. I'll make sure to post pictures.
  5. My allergies/sinuses have been insane in the last few weeks, and Z thinks it's possible that I could be allergic to the cat. I need to call the allergist and get tested just so that I can find out what I'm allergic to--but you can believe I will NOT be getting rid of my sweet kitty! I really hope it's something else that I'm allergic to.
I think I've covered everything major that's going on in my life let's skip ahead to What I'm Loving!
Link up with us!

...I'm loving that I've already managed to find dresses for both my bridal shower and my rehearsal dinner!
...I'm loving my wedding shoes! 
...I'm loving that I'm finally running again. I took time off during the school year (bad decision) and made excuses about how I didn't have time but now that I'm doing it again I feel so much better!

...I'm loving that I figured out how to turn my straightener into a curling iron. I know, I'm late to hop on this bandwagon. But it gives me many more options for my hair!

And as always...I'm loving my wonderful fiance, even when he doesn't cooperate for pictures!
During his birthday dinner...perfectly describes our relationship :)
