Five on Friday

Since I am still getting back in the swing of blogging I decided to hook up with Five on Friday. The goal is to blog about five things. So here goes...

1) Today is my last day of summer vacation. Teacher workdays start up on Monday and kids will come back the 26th. I am not looking forward to it. I LOVE my job but this summer flew by. Way to fast. 

2) B and I decided to start following the Weight Watchers plan when we got home from our honeymoon. He is tall and skinny (its not fair) while I a certainly not. B would like to lose approx. 20 lbs while I would like to lose a total of about 30 lbs. We followed the plan to a T this week and made sure we walked every night. We weighed this morning and I had lost 8.6 lbs the first week while B lost 7 lbs. We are both thrilled and very excited. We cooked 6 different nights this past week (normally we would have ate out at least 6 nights) and we didn't have a signal recipe that wasn't yummy. I'll make sure to share some on here soon. 

3) I had to run a few errands today so of course that constituted a quick stop at Kirklands. I may or may not have bought a Halloween themed item. While I am certainly not wishing the summer away (see #1), fall is my absolute favorite time of year. To add to it the weather here has been very fall like the past couple of days and is only supposed to get cooler through the weekend. 

4) Since B and I had a destination wedding we have planned a wedding party for August 24th. We are very excited to have all our family and friends together to celebrate with us. 

5) Tomorrow morning I go back to the dr. for another exam to see if I still have any pre-cancerous cells. The dr. is hoping that the miscarriage and D&C may have gotten rid of them. It would be nice to have them go away without having to do the LEEP procedure.

Hi, Kelly! I saw your comment on another local blogger I follow from NC, and I am always interested in finding other bloggers from our area. Congrats on your wedding! You were a lovely bride! In an effort to hopefully meet other local bloggers, I recently made a new blog for NC bloggers to come together and share our stories and lives in this great state. Feel free to check it out and follow along at

Also, please share with any other NC blog friends. I hope to start doing link ups for us to share our stories with one another! :-)
