October is my favorite, and I'm known to go all out for it. I think these two pictures should speak for themselves - the first is from last week. It was the warm-up PowerPoint I made for my classes. The second is my October celebration / 'outfit of the day' post from October 1st two years ago.

October is just so great. So many fun things happen. It's so beautiful outside. The weather is usually great - not too hot or too cold (when it's not raining for 11 days straight...). The leaves look gorgeous and the air is crisp. People travel and do cool festive things. MY BIRTHDAY IS OCTOBER 30TH. This October has already been great... excited for the rest of the month!!


Weekend Report

As usual, the weekend flew by-they always do! This one was wonderful, as most of them are. It was extra special, though. :)
Friday was an early release day at school. ASHLEY GOT HER LICENSE!!! We went to Country BBQ and let Margaret serve us our food. I had to go to Petsmart because Emery ran out of food and *whoops* I can't ever go in there and get JUST dog food... So Emery ended up with a pumpkin costume and a ski vest, ha!

Church youth trip to Steak n Shake and the bowling alley, where we had a really dank private room and guess what, I'M STILL TERRIBLE AT BOWLING! But it was super fun.

ON SATURDAY I WENT WITH BROOKE AND HER FAMILY TO HER ULTRASOUND APPOINTMENT TO SEE IF THE BABY WAS A BOY OR GIRL. I hadn't seen one in person since I was ten years old and Ashley was a lil fetus, and oh my. Seeing that little baby move was amazing. It made me so emotional! Life is so precious, and that baby seemed to already have a little personality! It was SO sweet...
I am so grateful to have b…

Monday Losses and Wins

Mondays seem to be a struggle, but good things usually happen on Mondays.  Last Monday, my day evolved a bit from the time I woke up to the end of the day. It was like the 10th rainy day in a row and I did NOT want to get out of bed and do anything.

But then in English class, The Crucible woke everyone up! My students got really into it for the first time, which made me soooo happy because I love The Crucible! When we stopped reading for the day they said, "Can't we just keep reading?!"  I said, "Oooooh... wait, are y'all ENJOYING The Crucible?!" Sheepishly: "Yes..." YAY! #win

Dropping a Golden Corral roll on the floor was a fail...

But the pizza Alex C. and I had after school was DANK. First time at Uncle Maddio's and I will most definitely be back. (They have a great Monday special.)

Alex got a new Jeep (we both had Jeeps in high school so it's like the old days except more luxurious!) so we took it for a spin to.......


Rain is an OKAY Thing (I guess)

On Saturday, I drove to Raleigh to meet up with Grace and Yadavan and go see Luke Bryan in concert! :)

We knew it was going to rain, but I didn't care. I saw Luke Bryan in the summer of 2014 in the pouring rain in Charlotte and it was worth every minute that I stood there getting soaked. We danced in the rain and had a blast anyway. So I knew that I definitely wanted to see him again, rain or shine.
Grace was visiting her grandparents, and I got to meet them, and they were PRECIOUS.

We met up with Yadavan and two of his friends at the concert.

The concert was AMAZING. Thankfully, it didn't rain too much and it didn't rain the whole time, either. We were okay wearing our hoods most of the time.

We danced and sang our hearts out. Luke puts on a fabulous concert. They didn't name him the CMA "Entertainer of the Year" for nothing! He's so funny and awesome. He performs all his best songs and does hilarious covers of top 40 hits.

I'm so glad we went. A…
