It's been well over a week since I have blogged! I do have a good reason for my absence. I have been keeping up with your blogs and commenting some but I am ready for a major life slow down. What better way to get back to blogging then to join What I'm Loving Wednesday. I feel like I say this every Wednesday but I have so much that I am loving I don't know where to begin...

I am loving that I only have a half day of school left before a long (much needed break). My district voted on a new calendar for this year which shortened our Christmas break but has us getting out at the end of May. When I voted it sounded like a great idea... now not so much! I know I will be thankful come May!

I am loving that I get to see my family in 3 days. I can't wait to go home for Christmas and relax in their company. 

I am loving that Christmas is so close!! I can't wait to give the gifts that I haven't even begun shopping for (no stress here).

I am loving that we signed a contract on our first home. We have been through a lot in throughout but was proven last night that it was all for a reason. I am excited to say (again) that Chris and I will be building our first home together. Estimated move in date is Mat 15th. I'm sure there will be many more details to come on this process. 

I am loving the amazing team of teachers I work with on a daily basis. Although I am ready for a break, I will miss them. I am so very thankful for each one of them!

I am loving that we stuck to our budget last month and have high expectations for this month. 

I am loving the newest items that I have added to my etsy store. I may do a post about the new items later this week. 

As always, I am loving this man. I would not be where I am today without him. He is awesome! Here is a picture of us from high school. 

I told you I was loving a lot this week! Link up with Jamie and show us what you are loving too. Have a great Wednesday!!
