    Ordered some shoes today too! :)

    Thanks MrsC. I think I had about as good a time as I could. 15 min of it included killing time in the bathroom.

    Chilling out at home with my family. Also looking up tilapia recipes for dinner tonight.

    It's super hot today, otherwise I might have wanted to go to the park or something.

    Went to the farmer's market in the nearby big city with my future mother-in-law this morning, and then ran to Sam's and the grocery store to get food for the week.

    Now I'm going to relax a bit before making my "wedding week" checklist of everything that needs to happen before the big day next Saturday!

    Caesar - I love tilapia pan fried with some fish breading, but I've even done it in the microwave with just a little lemon. Mmmmm.

    This will be a very busy week, amakaye. Good luck with the preparations.

    Have a great week, amakaye! Just remember, it is your life together and not just the wedding - I had a friend completely freak out over several MINOR mishaps on her wedding day, and it kind of set a bad tone for the marriage.

    Have a wonderful time!!

    Tomorrow we are going to head out early to the farmer's market in town. Hopefully we will find some great produce! Saturday night will be game night at my sister's house so that should be fun. I have to bring dessert! If the pie lady is at the farmer's market maybe I will bring one of those.

    We spent the morning (unsuccessfully) trying to get our new vehicle titled and registered...but my husband did pass the written test he had to take to get his out-of-state license transferred over!

    I finally made it to the farmer's market and they had less tables set up than usual. I got some corn but didn't see anything else that caught my eye. My sister gave us some jars so we can start making pickles tonight!

    Went and did a little food shopping this morning and bought some watermelon, strawberries, greek yogurt, veggies, tuna, etc. I am working summer school during the week so I wanted to stay in the rest of the day and get some things done.

    I am redecorating my cozy little ''den'' (also used as a home office) and I rearranged some furniture, sewed an antique white slip cover for my Victorian chair :love::love: so pretty!

    I also had last nights left overs from a Seafood restaurant for dinner, delicious grilled shrimp, rice pilaf & sautéed broccoli...yummm!

    I'm trying to get on top of my school work for the year so I can get get back to my "never bring work home" mode.

    I've had kids a week already, but my planning time has been filled with a bunch of back-to-school stuff. I haven't had time to grade papers and prep like I need to do.

    We picked up zucchini, green beans and green peppers at the farmers market. Some guy was trying to sell us his jams, jellies and nut butters. They looked good but probably contained too much sugar so we skipped it. Also went to the grocery store and Dollar Tree!

    Mr trip to the farmers' market yielded: golden beets, red onions, baby potatoes, green beans, pattypan squash, melon and dehydrated organic pears. Yummy! Now I'm watching baseball and sorting throughout some of the boxes of school stiff from my basement.

    I'm getting ready to go to Mom's house for supper, and then I'm going to school to work awhile.

    I don't like to bring things home, and this year I had vowed not to go to school on weekends either . . . but I've not had a single day to work in my room during planning this past week, so I'm going in today to get some things done. Nothing else to do anyway. Too wet to mow grass. No reason to shop. BF is sick.

    Completed my first Spartan Sprint today! What an experience! It was painful and muddy and LONG, but I feel so good about myself for completing it. Yes it took me FOREVER to finish, but I did. The people along the course were SO supportive, and helped me when my calf muscles decided to completely seize up (lol only me). Plus the medics were cute!! :)

    I definitely needed this. After a rough few months, my confidence has taken a hit and I feel like a shell of who I used to be. This definitely helped me realize I am capable of a lot more than I realize.
