Five For Friday: It's Almost Over, Y'all

Welcome to Five For Friday AND Freebie Friday (because I'm still too summer-lazy to do 2 posts, so scroll to number 5 if that's what you're here for!). Maybe I'm welcoming myself, because it feels like it has been ages since I blogged. I meant to take a week off of all of this blogging, social media-ing, and TPTing. I ended up taking more than two weeks, and I am a-ok with that! It's summer!

And the title of this post? It is a little sad. This time next week I will be sitting in my 3rd and final day of New Teacher Orientation. Where did summer go? Here are a few answers to that:

So it wasn't this week, but it's been a while since I last posted so I'm going to do a little catch up! For July 4th, we went to Savannah to visit with my folks. As usual, we ate a lot of food, including low country shrimp boil. Yummy! We also went to the theater to see Inside Out, which was so good!

I've also gotten all my paperwork completed to begin my new job! Now I can look official with my ID badge, and more importantly, go back to getting my teacher discount at Michael's.

Wedding Day

This past weekend, we went to my fiance's sister's wedding in Carmel, California. It was so gorgeous and a lot of fun! The weather in that part of the country is absolutely amazing and a wonderful reprieve from our Georgia summers. We can't wait to go back to visit his sister in San Francisco. I've never been, so I really want to do some touristy things!

While I was on the plane to SF, my sister was in labor. By the end of that night, Cora Ann was born! So, this week, I have been spending time getting to know her. It's been so  nice to have this last full week of summer to help out my sister and spend time with her babies!
