Since my last post I have applied for 2.5 million jobs, it feels like, so lets hope there are some leads with those this week, and I have been through substitute training and I'm officially on the list to sub! I'm excited and a bit nervous to be back in a classroom!
On Friday, mom and I went to "visit" my wedding dress in Augusta! I wanted to go because I wanted to look at my veil again, and a few other details of my dress. I also wanted to go because I knew I had lost a few pounds since May, and I wanted to see how my dress fit. In May, I bought my dress "off the rack" because it was the size they would have ordered for me anyways. It fit like a glove, minus needing to be altered in the bust. So they didn't use any clips to hold it/fit it when I was there in May. Well, Friday I put that dress on and it wouldn't stay up!! They had to use 2 clips to hold it on and there was about an inch or so in the clip!! What a great feeling to know that busting my rear in the gym is paying off!! Back at it tomorrow! :)
This weekend was also the start of college football season! Well, technically Thursday night was the start when USC played UNC. We had some friends over to watch the game, they brought some wings, I fixed meatballs and my favorite buffalo chicken cheese dip. I also made some cookie bars! All were a hit! See below for the recipes!
Finally, I've been looking on Etsy and various other sites for a garter, and my goodness they are expensive. So I have decided to DIY!! I bought all the pieces to make it, so I think I'll work on it today! If they turn out, I'll post a picture and how-to instructions!
I hope everyone has a great Labor Day! After today I will be pulling out my fall decor! My favorite!
