When we got to my parents' house, Burt got to settle in before the rest of us (my parents and 2 youngest siblings) headed out for the afternoon. I don't know positively, but I'm pretty sure of where I'll be student teaching so my parents and I had been checking out apartments in that area online. We decided to drive through a few of the complexes to get a better look at where they are. I'm really excited (and a little scared) to start living completely on my own - no family, no flatmates!
Then we went to Kohl's where I got some new dressy clothes to wear for teaching. I'm so bad about shopping for clothes (as my mother will tell you), so the fact that I got about 10 tops that I really like is amazing. I'm excited to wear them this week when I teach my 3rd and 4th graders! We stopped by a few other stores and ate at Cheddars for dinner before going home.
Saturday was my favorite day of the week. My sister and I have been planning a special surprise to brighten up my mom's mood since she's been really sad her and my dad's trip to the beach in Mexico this month fell through. We convinced our parents to go to the high school basketball game so me and my sister could go to the grocery store and decorate for the "Cafe Mexico." We went all out and made menus, wore aprons, and made fresh fruit juice for the event. It was so fun to put it all together and surprise them!
Sunday was Valentine's so I got some chocolates, the notepad featured in the title image, and 2 Disney Tsum Tsums!!! I got Marie from The Aristocats and Donald Duck and I think they are absolutely adorable. This has me up to 3 tsum tsums and I don't know that I can stop haha.
I spent most of the day doing homework (bleh) for one of the group projects I have coming up. When Burt and I got back to our home, I ordered a pizza for me and my flatmate since it also just so happens to be her birthday on Valentine's!!
How did you spend your weekend? Did you do anything special for Valentine's Day?
