Whats up:

Bought a few travel things for our trip today (it's quickly approaching!) No worries-I bought a camera memory card that holds 1400 pics! :) :) :) (I promise I won't make all of you look at them when we get back-only if you want to!)

I had a DELICIOUS peach shake from Chick-fil-a was seriously good. (thanks, momma) You should try one!

Brett is listening to Michael Jackson right now. ................. haha :)

He (Brett) is an incredibly patient, good husband. He is true to his word (and to his wedding vows he made almost a year ago!)

Becca won tickets to see the Legally Blonde musical. She can't go :(, but she is letting Jana and I go!

Time for bed :)

boat ride
and ribs with the Torbett men tonight.

I am a lucky gal :)

Relaxin' tomorrow (hopefully)... Brett will be in class.

His finals are released July 16th and are due the 20th.........

slight "problem"...we leave the 18th. Please pray his professors give him the final a couple of days early so we can leave with him knowing he did his best on the final and had time to complete it.

I will be packing (everything) and getting all preparations for our trip done by myself pretty much since he is doing school.
I can now teach, plan a wedding, and be a travel agent :)

I love my husband. Forever. :)
Is this cool or what?! :)
Got it at the workshop today (and if you are rolling your eyes then you might just be "too cool for school")

Material for the shelves under my windows in my classroom next year! I'm going to make six sections of curtains to hang up to cover up the shelves.
My "theme" colors are:

I'm going with nature type decor. I think I will put a wood stain on my loft, instead of painting. More later!
My first day of the science workshop at the U of A was today. It was fun and I met some nice people. I am really going to enjoy what we're made me feel like I was in college again (and it made me want to go back!)

This is the skirt I made this is cute, but rather poofy! I'm not sure if I'll wear it, or maybe I'll make another purse out of it :)
We'll see

"Lately"I bought this very cute material from Hancock's (used a 40% off coupon!), with the hopes of making a skirt (the material is extra soft, too)Rearranged the top of our bookshelf a bit.......

I've been reading this book to help teach myself how to teach writing more effectively. It's an excellent read!

I've been trying to keep our "porch" a bit cleaner and decorated........

My face is enjoying make-up free days :)
We booked tickets/tour for this today: (Vatican City and Sistine Chapel)

Whew! This trip planning takes a whole lot of work (but, what a trip it will be!)

Next week: I begin a two-week U of A workshop for K-4 teachers on life and earth science!

Hooray! Photography Club started this week and has been so much fun. :)

Things are going well around here............Brett and I are missing Ed, praying through this time, and looking forward to Italy. We rented one of these yesterday to drive for a few days through Tuscany:

Bye for now :).
