These are the {Summer} Days of my Life

In completing my first year of teaching, and quite honestly being pretty exhausted by it... I was kind of excited to have a bit more free time on my hands.
From spending 7-3:30 teaching {big} kiddos
and from 3:30-6 working the after school program watching and playing with kids
then spending two nights per week at church until 8:30
and finally making it home to try and get homework done before I fall asleep... I think I earned the feeling of free time!!

Little did I realize how crazy my summer would feel.
I had a week off after school let out before our summer "reading and writing" program began!
This first week off was quickly and entirely taken over by my first summer session of grad school... By far the most difficult semester I have had with grad school thus far! Highly time consuming!!

Luckily I got to spend a couple of those days cheering for one of my very dearest friends, Brittany, Miss New Mexico USA.

She is a beautiful person, inside and out and I was so honored to get to spend such a special day with her! Cheering her on with my momma and a herd of our sorority sisters! how awesome!

Not to mention that when her name was called for getting the "people's choice" award this was what was broadcasted on NBC:

Not only that but I am lucky enough to be living in Las Vegas and because of this luxury one of the awesome local casinos is having a summer concert series, where they are bringing in a whole slew of amazing performers to their outdoor stage!
I got to see:

Niki and her best lil friend!

Thanks for the photo-bomb Liz

What a great time these concerts have been! So glad to have spent them with such great people!!

Hope y'all are all having a fantastic summer as well!
