Snowy, cold, yucky Monday.


Happy Monday!

We had a great weekend at the lake, I'll do a full post on that tomorrow!
So today you get Miscellany Monday!

(1) I am excited for tonight. We get to see one of my brother's best childhood friends and his wife. It has been over 5 years since we've seen him as he lives in Texas! We have yet to meet his wife too so it will be great to catch up with them. When Jeff and Josh were younger Josh was at our house I think more then he was at his own (he lived accross the street) so he was like a second brother to me.

(2) We got a new oven! It comes tomorrow! Future Shop was having a 1 day VIP day so we snagged a great deal on it.

(3) I am very excited for dinner tomorrow night with our friends Dustin and Whitney - our double date has been postponed a few times now so this time FOR SURE we are having dinner! We don't get to see them nearly enough since they live way south and we are way north. :(

(4) It is ugly here today. Our back alley is a skating rink. This morning Justin and I had to push his car out of the alley because it is just ice with a ton of snow on top. But can I just say how much I am in love the our garage and those who build it. Seriously in love.
Oh and then walking Cruz I fell twice right on my butt. Lovely.
I wish I was here:

(5) I'm so looking forward to this workout tonight even though I really just want to curl up in bed! I love BodyRock workouts right now.

(6) It has been a sad day at work. We have had nothing but bad news for 3 of our families.
A staff member lost her Dad over the weekend, a 12 year old student lost her Mom (unexpectedly) over the weekend and one of our student is fighting through a major surgery as I type this.
 What I love about my job is that we are a really small school; we have 46 kids and 23 staff member so we are like an extended family to each other. But then when events like this occur is makes it very hard on everyone. Needless to say, it has been a very tearful day for our school family.

(7) Everyone just remember:
