We have actually seen results. Our stomachs both feel tighter and my legs are looking a lot more toned. My favorite area is definitely my arms. I hated the idea of any arm jiggle (you know what I'm talking about). I love flexing now, it's almost sick.
We had our first shower this weekend- SO much fun! My cousin and aunts through and it was great. We played a fun game where my cousin sent the Man a kind of fill-in-the-blank Love Story. He filled out his and I filled out the same one along with all the other guests. The contest was to see who got closer to mine or the Man's story. Most of our answers were pretty similar but when we were off, we were WAY off. Too funny. We received a lot of great gifts, now we just need our own house to put them in :)

I have to inventory ALL the books and materials. All of the teaching materials have to be organized and accounted. The things that sucks is that I have to clean out the entire room, and its truly not my room. So hearing that first thing this morning was a little disheartening. Luckily teaching fifth grade means my kids can help somewhat.
Anyways, the rest of my bridesmaid things came in today. Since I know they don't read this, I'll share the gift. I'm only having a matron of honor, but my sister-in-law to be who I LOVE LOVE is included, she's doing all of our flowers, TONS of them. Anyways, the girls are getting a LL Bean canvas bag with a light green handle. Inside they'll get pink with white polka dot flip-flops, and a small Vera Bradley bag. I love Vera Bradley and I wanted to share something original that the girls would remember us by without doing something engraved or anything like that. I plan to write a personal note to each one and maybe add some other fun thing. Hopefully they'll like it.

Today we sent out our invites for our Bachelor/ Bachelorette party. The man and I actually decided to have a joint party. We're going paint balling then grilling out at our future in-laws house. This is when I really wish we had our own place, I'm dying to be a hostess!! So the mall trip was needed today, I had to drop off invites to a few girls I worked with at Gap. I'm getting so excited for our day. I wanted to have fun and be relaxed but there aren't any decent clubs in town where random gross men don't try and rub up on you. The man really had reservations about a drinking/ partying night with the girls and I respect that. I know he trusts me, but some of the girls invited can be CRAZY!! This way we get to spend our weekend still together and have a great time.
My first shower is this Monday and I'm so excited!! I cheated and peeked at our registry- just doing a bit of editing, but not really- and we're getting some good stuff. I'm terrible at surprises, I'm fine with knowing everything we're getting in advance. I can also honestly say that I'm still so excited when I open things, there's no faking. I am also so excited for our friends reception on Saturday. A weekend full of our favorite people, we'll be busy but I LOVE IT!!

Let me tell you- she is tough! So far day 1 was pretty tough and I thought I was in shape. I did the first 20 minutes this morning after grading some papers and the Man just did it a few minutes ago. I can't wait to report back on how we feel tomorrow.

I know that are school district isn't hiring next year. They've actually laid off about 78 in just teachers. Its a larger district but that's still a lot. I feel like all I've done is apply and still no call backs. My advisor wrote me an amazing recommendation, my team mates wrote a great one and so did our assistant principal. I've had multiple people look at my resume and cover letter to check for errors. I can't help but ask, what is it that they don't like?
It's just frustrating. My guy and I have plans and my having a job would be great to help out. We'd like to buy a house while the market is still in our favor. When will our future just begin?
On a happier note. Last night my matron of honor came over and we put all of our invites for the wedding together. They look so good I just want go ahead and mail them right now! I'm meeting with the new owners who just bought out our reception site to see what changes they're making next Wednesday.
Tonight was also my last seminar for my Master's program. We have 19 more days of school and a week after that we begin our summer classes. It's so crazy how fast the year went, but it was so great. I will miss my school and my kids. But summer, I REALLY can't wait for!!
