5 on Friday

I can't believe it's already Friday....which probably has a lot to do with the fact that today's my first day back at work (and even that is 2 hours late). But, we'll get to that in a sec.

{1}- Snow Days
This Monday was Martin Luther King day (no work), and then the next 3 days we got snow days off of work (plus a 2 hour delay this morning). Don't get me wrong, I love a good snow day (and not working), but now we've lost President's Day weekend off, and our teacher workday in April, plus, if we have ANY more days off, our school year is gonna get extended. I was cool with a day or two off, but January isn't even over yet (and I've only worked about 6 days so far in January it seems like), so I have a feeling I'll be in school after June 20th. Wah. Not to mention I have SO much work and tons of meetings to catch up on...
Last week MG came down with a cold at the start of the work week and despite our best efforts for me to not get it before my bridal shower, come Friday afternoon I had the sniffles, and by that night my nose hurt from how much I'd already been blowing my nose. Luckily I was ok-enough at the bridal shower, but that night my voice almost totally disappeared and now I'm coughing. I HATE coughing (I mean, I'm guessing everyone does), because I get the dry tickles that turn into hacking coughs. And usually I'm in the middle of a meeting or something where it's totally embarrassing when it happens. I'm hoping it settles down over the weekend. I guess the days off were nice so that I could recover some without taking actual sick days, at least.

{3}-Dress Fitting
I get to try on my wedding dress today!!!! I have my first fitting today with my mom and my friend/bridesmaid Crystal and I'm SO excited! There will definitely be pictures taken (but, don't be mad, I probably won't post them on here until the after the actual wedding day), and I can not wait!!

{4}-Bridal Shower/Thank You's
these are the thank you's I'm
I posted on Wednesday about my bridal shower (you can read about it here), so I won't go into that again, but I have taken advantage of the time off to write all of my thank you notes to the ladies who attended my bridal shower (and some who couldn't), which amounted to 40+ something thank you notes. As you can imagine, my hand hurts haha. I'm glad to have them done and out, though, and now I'm ready for round two (in 2 weeks)!

{5}-Hair Trial
Tomorrow is my hair trial for my wedding day hair. I have to drive an hour to meet up with the girl who's doing my hair, which stinks, but I'm excited to finally get the trial underway. And, my friend Bree is coming with me--ultimate girl time! This is the hairstyle that we're going to work from...(minus the flowers)

And on that note, I'm gonna get through today, and then get to that fun wedding-related stuff :)
Catch ya on Monday!
