Busy Bees Part 2

My oh my oh where does the time go? It has been almost a week since my last post and I feel like it has been several weeks. Time is flying by..I have 7 more days at my school until summer vacation..now if I were only not working this summer then life would be complete. However I was given the option that if I did not work then my spending would have to be cut back dramatically! So basically I need to work to support my habits...filling out an application as we speak to turn in and then I start in early June...whew! I am quite excited about this new opportunity. I will be working with the geriatric population, which will be nice for a change. Not that I am not loving the kids still..just need a change for a few months. Working with children is the best form of birth control on this planet. And that is all I am going to say on that topic.

A few weeks ago I mentioned that JJ and I had been hard at work well that continued through this weekend. We mulched the front and back and planted more flowers. Well we were able to get almost everything completed before Saturday afternoon. JJ mentioned to me several months ago that we should do a crawfish boil at the house..and at first I was reluctant, but decided it would be a fun way to see some friends that we hardly see. So in lieu of a house warming party we had a crawfish boil. Now I say "in lieu of" because I did not want people to bring us gifts. We just had the wedding less than a year ago and I did not want people to feel obligated to bring us another gift since they just had for the wedding. JJ agreed so it was decided no housewarming party. I don't mean to sound trite, but I just wasn't comfortable calling it a housewarming party for the sheer fact that we did not want our family friends to feel the obligation that goes along with that specific party.

Well it rained like cats and dogs on all night friday and into the morning on Saturday and I was starting to get nervous. Luckily Jenn, Brian, and Tina came over early and helped me stay calm and get everything set-up for the day. It was a wild and crazy day filled with lots of great memories. I can't wait until our next event..well maybe I can. Here are a few shots from the day.

Some lifelong family friends...

couldn't have done it without them!

So all in all it was a great day. We didn't stop the entertaining Saturday night. We had Round 2 on Sunday evening, but it was much more low-key, but we had to finish off that crawfish. I think I can say without a doubt that we will not be eating crawfish for a few weeks!

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend as much as we did.

PS The countdown is on...6 days until our 1 year anniversary & and 8 more days of working...
