Mini-update


I haven’t posted in a while, I’m sorta in-between figuring out what exactly I want to do with this blog. I’ve been thinking about re-vamping it – and even considered moving it to another host site, but I still haven’t been able to figure out exactly what I want to do.

Maybe, I’ll work on finalizing that tonight. For now, you get a personal post.

Not much is going on here, just the same old same old. Getting ready for the school year, we aren’t allowed to go into our classrooms yet to set-up, but we’ve been working on getting everything else together. I’m incredibly excited to meet all the students this year! I’ve been lucky to build great relationships with the students and their parents so far.

In other news… My birthday came and went, and it was wonderful. I am so incredibly lucky to have such wonderful people in my life. Mitchell and I have been able to build a wonderful and strong little family with our group of friends. One of our incredibly wonderful friends made me Quidditch themed birthday cakes!

Things we did for my birthday:
Spent the day relaxing at Alki
Had a fun game night with all 12 friends who were able to join us
Spent another day on Lake Washington
Went hunting for Pokemon with our friends Katy and Adam
Had another game night with our friends Katy and Adam, and Katy (who also made the Quidditch cake) also made me homemade kettle corn (YUM!)
My co-worker made me chocolate covered strawberries
I read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child with my oldest friend, Allyson

It’s safe to say, I was incredibly spoiled, yet again. I don’t know how I managed to get so lucky!

Catch up…

Last Thursday, I video chatted with my dear friend, Lauren. It’s always so nice to catch up with her and see how things are doing. I truly do miss having her nearby, but it’s wonderful that thanks to technology I can see and talk to her whenever we want. After we had our “google hangout” Mitchell, kitten and I hung out on the couch for a little while and watched some Netflix.

Friday, I took the youngest I nanny, the stuffed turtle she stole from my car (His/her name is Purple Purple…you can see him bottom rightish.) out for breakfast. She wasn’t feeling so hot so shortly after this photo she went from smiley to grumpy… which changed as soon as she heard the words “going to target.” She loves that place as much as any other female haha.

Friday evening, we went over to our friend Tim’s house, for games and dinner. Mitchell and I stopped at Uwajimaya beforehand and picked up some of our favorite snacks. We had a fun time and played some fun games!

Saturday I went out to coffee with some ladies I met through a facebook group… we meet up once a month and catch up. It was really nice, afterwards I went to Bellevue Square Mall with one of them, we walked around, met her husband and daughter for lunch and talked some more, they are such a cute little family, and I really enjoyed talking with their 2 year old daughter. After I came home and hung out on the couch with my Kitten. Here she is above being all sorts of adorable.

IMG_6229Yesterday (Sunday) we went to Alki with Mitchell’s sister, her boyfriend and their 3 dogs. It was such a warm and beautiful day, we sat on the beach, walked around for a while looked at the sea-life, and then went back to their place for some delicious fish tacos! It was such a wonderful way to spend our sunday and end the weekend, I didn’t even dread today as much as I normally do 🙂

I’ll post tonight’s photo with tomorrow’s because it’s late and I need go go to bed! I hope it’s sunny again tomorrow though, because I love going for walks with the kids!
