Insta-Friday 4.19.13

Insta-Friday 4.19.13 It has been a crazy week and it'll be an even crazier weekend! I am off to my alma mater to visit friends and support them in Sing n Swing, the culminating activity of Greek Week. It's hard to believe how much has changed in a year. I can't wait to spend time with Aaron and friends.

Here's a recap of my week (from left to right, top to bottom):

  1. Isn't it beautiful?! With the help of my parents, I recently installed an IKEA Expedit shelf in my "craft room" and it turned out wonderfully. Check out the before and afters here. Trust me, you'll have second-hand embarrassment about the Before...
  2. School can be so lovely in the morning when the sun rises. Oh, and when there aren't any kids :)
  3. The anatomy of a school lunch: Zoo nuggets, curly fries, juice, and a roll.
  4. Homerun. Okay, so I lugged my camera and tripod to a little league field down the road to take some outfit pictures. No shame. Even if I am totally not wearing the proper footwear :)
  5. I took this photo the day after the Boston Marathon bombings. I was amazed by how the sun peeked among the gray clouds. It instantly made me think of this Ghandi quote, one I shared with my students later: "You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; If a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty." 
  6. BEST NEWS EVER!!!! My great friend and sister Chelsea sent me this beautiful card on Wednesday asking me to be a bridesmaid! I am so honored and excited. I haven't been in a wedding since I was a flower girl at age 5 I believe. :) I love weddings!

I hope you all had wonderful weeks. Enjoy your weekend! I have something exciting to announce next week!
