Holiday Weekend

I spent the majority of my Labor Day weekend working on lesson plans for this upcoming week, but I did manage to squeeze in a little fun and relaxation, too!

I spent Saturday morning and afternoon working. Later, my parents, husband, and I received a tour of my sister's cute new home before having dinner at one of our favorite Italian restaurants. After dinner, my husband and I spent the evening watching movies with my parents.

I spent most of Sunday morning and afternoon working, then the hubby and I went and picked out our lighting fixtures for the house. (A house that hasn't even been started yet, if you're wondering!) That evening, we had dinner with my in-laws and played a few games of hearts.

I finished up my work by early afternoon today. I'm now caught up and a tiny bit ahead in all my classes. Hopefully I can get a lot done during the week so I can stay ahead. I chose to give myself a break this afternoon and evening and enjoyed the cool, rainy day with my book ("Water for Elephants") and a little nap. My mother made a delicious vegetable soup and beer bread for dinner and now I'm unwinding before bed. This long weekend was definitely needed!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! Happy first day of September!
