Misc. Monday

with Carissa at lowercase letters

This weekend went by entirely too fast! Do you all feel this way on Mondays too? I had a great weekend but also had lots of packing and cleaning and paper writing to do that consumed way too much of my time!

Our engagement party is this coming weekend! We're so excited to see some friends and family members and celebrate our engagement with them. Look for details at Bridal Talk Tuesday tomorrow. 

I'm getting a little nostalgic about all the southern things I'm going to miss. I find myself eating a lot of unhealthy things just because they won't be available in New Jersey - Chic-fil-A for example. 

Corey and I are taking a mini vacation on our way up to New Jersey. Several of our friends have rented a house in the outer banks and we're stopping to spend several days with them. I'm so looking forward to a few days at the beach. I have a cute new swimsuit that hasn't even seen the beach yet! 

I have four more class days until I've finished my master's coursework! I cannot believe it is finally here! I only have one more assignment to complete and a week of my practicum teaching. My actual graduation is in August but not many people at my school walk for their master's. I am not walking because I am ready to move! But...I still need a graduation gift from my sweet fiance. He called my mom last night to discuss graduation gifts so I can't wait to see what he has his eye on.

  2. Yup, no Chic-fil-A here...but there are some other yummy things that you'll find yourself. Especially living so close to NYC :)
