So sorry that I have been missing but things around here have been just a little hectic. I had a great long weekend and was able to visit my parents and some great friends.
The weekend started with a quick stop over at one of my best friends houses. She is an amazing woman that I don't get to see nearly enough. The girl has lost a tone of inches since she started running which lead to some really good luck for me. Turns out the girl does not need her size 18 clothes anymore, but guess who does. That's right ME! She gave me a tone of clothes, in fact more clothes then I currently own. Her shopping habits are helping me out immensely right now. So I have a great wardrobe waiting for me down in size 18 land very soon! I cannot wait. Talk about some great motivation.
The next day I got up and headed to my parents house where my Dad and I drove another hour away to get together for my Aunt's 60th birthday party. It was really wonderful to get to see so much of my extended family. I love getting together for joyous occasions!
Sunday, was a day of window shopping and lunch with my Mom. This has to be my absolutely favourite thing to do with my Mom. We can go browsing for hours and never buy anything. I just love it. Lots of great conversation and catching up. The phone can only make up for so much when you live 5 hours away from your Mom.
Sunday night, I luckily was able to get together with Veronica from A Nu(de) Motivation. We went out for dinner and chatted for hours. It was so nice to visit with her in person. She is my online BBF, we chat everyday almost.
Monday brought me home which was nice but kinda sad because it marks the official end to my summer holidays. I know anyone who is not a teacher is like shut up! But seriously it's sooo sad, I love my job but I also loved this summer. I just had so much fun!
Tuesday was the first day of school. It went really well. There are some really sweet kids at my new school, I do believe this will be an awesome year full of changes for me. It's always weird for me that the New Year is really in January since my life starts over every September for me. It also seems fitting since we'll be doing the photos for A Nu(de) Motivation in August, which is like the end of the year for me. It's hard to believe how far I have come and so exciting to think of how different things will be in 12 months time!
Get out and enjoy the day!
