Back to reality....

As many of you know,
I'm starting school....

Back to work for Mrs. Bowers
(I haven't been called that yet by students!)

I spent my last week of summer with family, friends,
and of course, food.

Movies, birthdays, sunshine, reunions, and new recipes.
All in all, it was a great week.

Cooking out with my family in Wadesville

Class reunion with friends.
(10 years, agh!)

We had friends over for ribs! (yum!)

I learned how to cook pumpkin flowers!

Bowers family reunion in Michigan

Joel and Ethan fishing.

It was a great week and an awesome summer.

I love being a teacher again....
hopefully I still feel that way next week.

A Happy Birthday Blog :-)

Today is my lovely friend,
Stephanie's birthday.
I'm ecstatic to be heading to Indy to celebrate with her.
(thank God for one last week of summer vacation!)

Not only have I known and been friends
with her since Pre-School,
but we've also seen each other
through so many of life's changes.

She is (by far!) one of the best teachers I know.
She's caring, a great listener,
and also a kickass running partner.
(she got my lazy butt to run two Mini's!)

Stephanie, I love you dearly.
You're truly gorgeous both inside and out.
I feel so blessed to call you my friend.

I hope 29 is your best year yet. :-)

(This is her dog, Ollie...he's awesome as well).


On a small side note,
I am, of course, on the Mega bus.
It's raining outside,
and somehow also inside, on me.
When will I ever learn to just hop in the car and drive?
