A Much Needed Break (& Upcoming Back to School Posts!)

I've spent the last week or so MIA from the blog world.  My good friend and former roommate got married this past Saturday, so I stayed super busy with wedding events and spending time with all of the friends that came into town.  The last of my friends left today, which was very emotional for me since I don't know when I'll see them all again.  It seemed to hit me really hard today, but I think this past week made me realize how much I miss everyone and miss having a group of close friends here in town.  

As I posted of Facebook earlier, "I think goodbyes are hardest when you don't know when the next hello is going to be...  I need to start planning some vacations."

The Fab 5!

What's kinda funny is that in the past week of having people in town, I completely neglected my normal routines online.  I barely even checked my e-mail each day!  My Google Reader was at about 500 unread posts!  I'd totally neglected this blog, Pinterest, Polyvore, and You Tube!  I guess actual human interaction is better than just online interaction, but I must admit I have a lot to get caught up on in the online world!

I'm also still taking my math course, which has taken up my days for the past week and a half.  It's been really bad timing, but it's all good!

I'm really starting to kick things in the back to school mode now.  I'm starting to hit up the sales and will probably go into my classroom next week to at least begin getting some work done there!  School starts for us in less than a month now and I know that the time is really going to fly by between now and then!  

I thought I'd leave you all with a little preview of some posts that will be coming in the next week or two!
