5 on Friday

Wooohooooo Friday!!

{1}-Summer Break
As of today, there are still 8 days left of school (1.5 weeks if we're getting specific). Thanks to those snow days and delays, our already late-ending school year got pushed back even later. I am SO ready for summer vacation, and so are the kids. State testing is done, it's hotter than a monkey's uncle out, and kids are antsy. So are the teachers. June 25th can't get here soon enough!

{2}- Settling In
I'm SO glad to have an entire weekend to devote to getting fully settled into our house. Last weekend was jam packed with moving and getting everything set up to be habitable, but now I'm excited to have the time to get stuff put away, organized, etc. And to sleep in and get caught up on all of the sleep that I missed, or drained, from last weekend. 
{3}-Girls' Night! (x2)
Tonight is gonna be girl's night with one of my friends and I am SO pumped about it. Getting take-out at a new Thai restaurant, then back to the house (which she'll be seeing for the first time) to watch chick flicks, drink wine, and veg out. And, it'll even end in a sleepover! :) Saturday night I'm having some girls over to the house since our men are all gonna be golfing together--it's been a while since I've gotten together with these girls, so I think it'll be real nice to just relax and catch up. I love a good friend-sesh!

{4}-Wedding Video
My highlights wedding video got completed on Monday and I've watched it at least once every day since then. I always end up with a smile on my face when it's over, too, like some kind of grinning idiot. I'm ok with it though and am even more amped to get the full version whenever that's completed. I would show it to you, but it's one of the few things that I'm going to keep private. Plus, it has MG's real name in there and I can't edit that out. So for now, you'll just have to trust me (and the few bloggy friends I've showed) that it's great :)

{5}- Belated Blog Happy Birthday!
I want to take up my last spot today and wish my blog bestie, Shay, a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!  (I wished you one on FB, but not on the blog) 
She's one of the nicest and funniest people you'll ever meet, not to mention incredibly caring and helpful (hello, wedding programs, etc!). She's one who totally "gets" me and although we aren't close enough to hang out every day, I love that she's part of my life on a daily basis. Love you, Shay!

I need to get my butt into gear getting progress reports for kids done, because I found out a day ago that they are due on Monday. Lucky me!

Have a great weekend! Oh yeah, and happy Friday the 13th!
