This morning I was supposed to teach swim lessons. I might not have mentioned that, but I've been swimming since sixth grade, teaching lessons since eighth and I coached in and after high school. Swimming I know pretty well. Anyways, for the last three summers I've been using the Man's bosses home pool to teach lessons. The Man works at a Pool and Spa place, small family business that does work all around our area. His boss and wife are really nice and they've been kind enough to let me use their pool. Last summer I was sure it was going to be my last, but with my altered schedule I had seven days open. I got my two favorite families all lined up. Sure enough last night the boss' wife calls, their teenage daughter decided to have a sleep over and they're going to camp out- THANKS!
The Man and I keep talking that when we buy our house we'll look at building a pool. Our city is perfect for private lessons so we'd pay it off in a summer or two. We just have to buy a house, which means I just have to get a job. The Man who's very calm about the whole situation knows that it will all work out, deep down I know that it will too. I'm just ready to get started.
This week I'm starting to work on our programs, again a DIY project. I think that's part of my favorite aspect of our wedding. We're doing so much ourselves, there's meaning behind it all. At times it's consuming, but I love all of it.
I'm also going to practice making the cookies for our favors. We have a couple of different sugar cookie recipes that should be good. Only 400 some to make!

My favorite face lotion. Recommended by my dermatologist in high school. I had rough skin in high school, I was an extremely active swimmer and acne runs in the family so I needed some help in the face department. Anyways, so I went in for some of the BEST LOTION EVER! Not greasy, and it actually moisturizes. I use it in the morning and at night. Dry skin is a thing of the past.
We ended up taking home:
This pink on was $24. Perfect for the rehearsal dinner. It'll be nice and cool, perfect colors too.
This afternoon I'm heading out to the Man's parents house where the wedding's going to be. We planted the pots for reception. I can't wait to check up on them and she how they're growing.
Alright, I'm supposed to be adding to an online discussion which I've procrastinated since yesterday afternoon- whoops :)

Our rehearsal invites are all finished. I love the DIY projects. I can personalize everything to exactly what we want and match our wedding. Now we just have to get working on the programs. Only six more weeks until the big day. Can't wait!

The hardest part was saying good-bye to my students. They were such an amazing class, I know I couldn't have had a better year. I learned so much about teaching and myself. Summer will be a blast. I just have to get through this week, store all my teaching things for the summer and hope for the best.
On a lighter note, we picked up all the materials for our Rehearsal Dinner invites. I'm really into the DIY cards. That and I couldn't find affordable ones that I really liked. Next weekend is our last shower, the Man's be-day and father's day. Present capital for the man is what it sounds like. I'm hoping since it's the Man's side they'll get him some of the man gifts he picked. Not that I mind the "girlier" gifts as he likes to call them.
Okay, enough procrastinating. Time to land a job.

I can't believe our day is 49 days out. We did something really exciting this morning- WE MAILED THE INVITES. So exciting, I was peeved we had to add an ugly Ram stamp because of the additional weight. We were .1 oz over. I had the pre-weighed but the address label apparently was really heavy, who would have thought? At least the inside is beautiful. Here's our pics I made the Man snap, he thinks I'm crazy. Oh well.
