Christmas 2016

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!

Because Andrew had to work Christmas Eve night we opened our gifts Christmas Eve so Christmas morning was spent being lazy and getting ready for the day.  At noon we went to my dads/grandma's and had lunch and opened presents.  Sadly, i took no pictures there!

Then we drove 3 hours to Andrew's aunt and uncles for their Christmas.  We hung out, and then did a gift exchange where everyone brought something new and something used.  It was a lot of fun.  Then we ate dinner (tacos) and played some games and just hung out.  
Below are a couple pictures I took!

My Favorite Picture!! <3

Christmas Eve 2016

Like always we spent Christmas Eve at my mom's side at my aunt's house.  We've been doing this as long as I can remember!  We also take family pictures and then we eat (sandwiches and soup).  Then we hang out for awhile before opening gifts, eating cake for my cousin/uncle birthday's, and by then it's late and time to go home before Christmas morning!

Below are some pictures from Christmas Eve this year!

Winter Break

This is me trying to be better at blogging for 2017!!

My winter break was December 23rd through January 3rd, because I student teach I don't get the normal college break but follow the local school districts break.  SO it was super short and busy, but I thought I would do a little recap of it!

The evening that break started my soon to be sister-in-law came over and stayed the night.  We eat pizza and watched a movie and hung out.  The next morning we made a Target/starbucks run and then went to Five Guys with Andrew.  We went and picked up her bridesmaid dress for the wedding, and ended the day with a trip to Hobby Lobby before she left for her 2 hour drive home!

Saturday was Christmas Eve and we had my mom's side (posts to come).  Then Christmas we had my dad's side and then drove the 3 hour drive to Andrew's aunt for their side.

Monday morning Andrew's family and us had our family Christmas!  And that afternoon Andrew's mom, sister, and I went day after Christmas clearance shopping!  So much fun!

We stayed with Andrew's family until Tuesday Morning.  Tuesday morning we made the treck home but on the way we stopped back in my hometown for my dentist appointment.  And then we went to my moms to watch my youngest brother sam for awhile while my mom went on an interview and then open presents with her.

Wednesday I got to spend time with one of my best friends, Jenn.  We went to lunch together and then she came along with me for all my errands that I needed to get done!!

Thursday I didn't do too much.  And then on Friday I went with my grandma to return boots I got for Christmas that didn't fit and also to lunch.  That afternoon I had to go back to my hometown for a doctors appointment.

Saturday I didn't do much again, and then Sunday morning we drove to Andrew's parents again to see some family friends that were in town.  We enjoyed time with his family on Sunday and Monday.  We came back last night!
(My soon to be sister and I snuck out Sunday night for a little dinner/shopping trip)

Today I met my cooperating teacher for the semester and tomorrow I will officially start!  Sad that the break is over, but it was much needed and enjoyed!!! :)

2017 A Year Of Changes

The year I've been waiting for, 2017, is finally here!
I'm super excited for this year because I have a lot of fun and exciting things happening.

At the beginning of the year I will be starting my last semester in college/student teaching in third grade.  In May I will be graduating from college!  And then the next weekend my brother will graduate from high school.  And then just 2 weeks later will be my wedding :)

I will hopefully be getting a teaching job this year that would start in August.  And there's a lot of other exciting things that could happen this year!

2017 will be a good year for me and probably the best year yet!  I am super excited for it and happy this year is here!

Hope everyone has a great 2017 as well! :)  Happy 2017!!
Hoping I can atleast post more this year then last year so I can capture all the adventures and exciting times that are ahead!!
