Alyssa's Wedding

Tonight, we attended Alyssa Hoerr and Nate Kolb's nuptials. They had a beautiful service at a church in Urbana, followed by a lovely, decked-out reception on campus. Alyssa looked beautiful and we had a great time with our crazy table! So happy for the two of them!

Lazy Girl

I think I am a little sad that my summer went by so fast. Though I'm incredibly excited about my inaugural school year at Monticello High School, I have been trying to soak up as much lazy time as possible. I've had quite a bit of fun in the sun this summer and I have some pretty awful allergies which have provided me with plentiful sinus pressure :/, so I spent all of today and yesterday in bed watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Netflix. I have to say, it was pretty awesome to have the freedom to lay in bed and do nothing for two days. Since Al and I plan to have children in the next couple years, I am well aware that these kind of days are numbered, but I'm going to enjoy the time I have to lay around and be lazy for as long as I can!

One of the most beautiful things that can happen to a teacher happened to me today:

I found an air conditioner in my classroom!

This little bugger was hiding behind some curtains in my room, unaware to my sweaty butt for a few days of desk moving and room scrubbing! Someone must have been working in my room on a day that I wasn't and had pulled the curtain back just a bit further than I had and voila! I came in today to find this gem! WOO HOO!
