Tonight we celebrated our anniversary at our favorite restaurant in Juneau...the Island Pub. It was a wonderful evening full of good food and good conversation but we both would've liked to have been back in Vegas celebrating with our friends and family. Maybe every 5 years we could have a "re-do" wedding. How fun would that be? =)

Thanks Erin for spreading the word on your blog AND facebook!
Thanks Mindy for being my first FB fan!!
Thanks Stephie for letting me use your house for multiple shopping adventures!
Thanks in advance Molly for keeping me organized and making sure that I follow through with the craft fair idea.
Thanks to everyone else who's told a friend about my site or added me to your FB page. You guys are awesome!
On another note....Stephenie & I were talking tonight and realized that neither of us are putting up a tree this year. So, our question to you is WHERE do you put presents if you don't have a tree???? I have mine sitting on top of a dresser & she has hers near her piano. Other options?? Kitchen table?? Under the TV???

Don't laugh...it went in...
Elementary kids don't quite get the idea of "the wave" but it was a good try ;-)
MRCS teachers rock!!!
Friday was Crazy Hat Day! Adam and I sported our reindeer antlers & halo to show our school spirit.
It's been a fun-filled week. I love my co-workers ;-)

I wasn't able to find a ride today so I decided to take the bus with my friend and her kiddos. It was my first Juneau-bus ride and I have two things to say about it.
1. Knowing how to use public transportation is definitely a "life-skill" that everyone should learn how to navigate.
2. The Juneau bus system is actually pretty good. The driver was friendly, the bus was warm, the company was pleasant (thanks Carriker Clan ;-) ), and it dropped me off right at the bottom of my hill.
Dad- be sure to check Rosco's blog for Dude's latest adventure ;-)

The wedding was on the beach with about 15 family members in attendance. We've never felt more welcomed by other people's families than we did that weekend with Matt & Danielle's.
Heath, their photographer, has posted pictures of the wedding to his blog http://www.focusunbound.com/wordpress/ if you want a small glimps of a quaint town, a gracious family and two head-head-over-heels-in-love science nerds.

I was up early this morning ready to head downtown and proctor tests for the highschoolers. However, with the power out the testing was rescheduled and I headed back home. I was awake and ready to have a productive and relaxing Saturday morning.
I needed to...
Go grocery shopping
I wanted to...
Read a book
Watch a movie
I realized that all of these things needed electricity (yes, even reading the book since it was SO dark in here!!) so I decided to crawl back in bed and snuggle with the hubby and dog. We fell asleep listening to the wind howl and were grateful for our nice warm bed.

We've gone into hibernation mode and find ourselves eating and sleeping too often. Leaving our house takes more energy and motivation than we have so we tend to stay in and invite those who aren't hibernating to join us at our house.
This week I learned....
*Amy makes an amazing homemade cheesecake....
*How to shimmy & do snake hands....
*Keeping my witches broom in the car can lead to many interesting conversations....
*One day of sunshine can make you forget the 7 days of wind and rain....

Our week has been fairly uneventful. The excitement level at work is pretty high right now due to Halloween. If you work at a school then you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. It's crazy and impossible to keep the kids focused but so much fun.
Tonight was the first night of my belly-dancing class.
I loved being challenged
I loved working my muscles that don't usually get any attention
I loved laughing at myself and my ungraceful dancing ability
I wonder how Molly felt about the class? Maybe she'll blog about it =)

...kissing my honey along the river....not caring about whether I remembered to wash my hair that morning....wearing sandals....reading a book in the grass...and not having a care in the world.
However, it's October in Juneau and we're quickly losing daylight. The rain and chill in the air make us look for things to do inside rather than outside.
Here's a little snippet of our evening last night....
Start with the dough & shape them....
Boil them & bake them...

I discovered the UAS bookstore a few years ago and it has become one of my favorite places to shop when looking for unique Christmas or birthday presents. Most of their merchandise is UAS clothing, books and school supplies but they do have a section of their store devoted to Fair Trade items from around the world. I found these butterfly wing earrings on my last trip out there and have been wearing them nonstop. If you haven't been out there you should go. I guarantee you will find some amazing suprises!
