Put a Ring on It

(via welovepictures)

Here’s our ring bling from Etsy, of course. How did people get married before Etsy? We selected these lovely, rustic looking rings from Tinahdee’s shop because we are just that earthy. Except that we got them in yellow gold because I’ve succeeded in teaching Kevin James that it’s “better” and “more classic.” Kevin’s is going to be inscribed with something sweet. Mine is not. You’ll have to ask him to see what it is if you’re curious. Can’t wait to start on a new ring tan line together! :)

I’m off to church for my second-to-last week at my church here. It definitely hasn’t sunk in yet…

Hi Friday!

I’m so incredibly thankful. This has been a long week packed with extra music rehearsals for my students followed by sticky cupcake celebrations and impromptu kickball games. I’ve been a wee bit stressed, and I’m having a pink eye scare.

Last night something unusual happened. There was definitely a small earthquake. I was talking on the phone with Kevin James when I felt it. I totally tweaked. However, nobody else in my house felt it! We’re all from the Midwest so sometimes the possibility of something being an earthquake occurs to us rather slowly. I ran into the other room where my roommate’s sisters was quite contentedly reading and was like,” DID YOU FEEL SOMETHING?” She just looked at me like I was insane. But sure enough, it was all over Facebook. You can always count on your students to make lame comments and status updates during things like that, but at least it confirmed that I wasn’t crazy!

Here are a few cool things (that nobody but me cares about) to get your Friday kicked off:

Disposable push-pop containers now available from this etsy store.

In rainbow cookie form.

Simple rustic wedding decor: frames + lights

And canoodling. With filthy feeet.

Enjoy your Fridays. I’m going to dinner tonight for one of the last times with one of the seniors. We’re going to Chili’s! Hooray for American food!
