Five on Friday

Happy Friday! It's going to be a good one, I just know it. This week has been chaotic, hence the lack of blogging, but I've only got two IEPs left to write for the school year! Once those are done I'll have a lot more time on my hands to keep everyone up to date on this life of ours... 

1 - I'm making some serious progress on planning my sister's bridal shower. I've decided on a brunch at a local restaurant in Eric's home town. (It's actually the same place that we held our rehearsal dinner.) We picked Hornell because it's somewhat central for everyone involved & I can set up homebase at my mother in law's house for all of the prep work. 

2 - It's supposed to be 81 degrees today! That means that we have about a hundred subs in our building & I had to fight the urge to call in sick off with a sledgehammer. Oh how I wish I was in my lawn in new bikini - but alas I settled for open toed wedges & a tank top for work. That'll have to be summer-y enough until 3 p.m. 


3 - We're heading to the Lilac Festival tonight! Rochester is a city of festivals, and this is the one that kicks it all off. I'm not actually sure if there will be any lilacs, mainly because our weather has been a little too cold for them to bloom. I'm really going for the fried dough & food trucks though, so I'll be a happy camper with or without them. 



at the Lilac Festival in 2009... I feel like we were such kids!
and let's not even talk about those sunglasses... 

4 - I'm currently sitting here, trying to figure out how I can possibly take my study hall outside without getting in trouble for abandoning instructional duties. I want some sunshine & I want it now! If only our school had an amphitheater or outside classroom. Not practical in New York, but on days like this it'd be full! 

5 - This morning I put Ella in shorts for the first time since we were in Florida. She was so excited & kept reaching down to touch her bare legs. I wish I'd been able to get a video of it, but I was able to snap this photo of her... 




She's getting so big. I am astounded by her everyday - running around, kicking a soccer ball, showing me how she can snap. (She can't snap by the way, but she tries really hard & it's adorable.) I am so ready for summer vacation so I can spend every day with her. I just want to soak in all of her awesomeness...
