Bug Bites

My legs are covered in bug bites. I am not sure if it's because of all the excitement over the weekend that I didn't notice them on Sunday... but now as the dust settles, I cannot stop scratching!!! I think I counted 11 bug bites in total on my feet, ankle, and calves. Anyone have suggestions on how to make them stop itching? I am using this Benadryl cream, but it doesn't work :(

How is the week starting out for you? Yesterday was the fastest Monday I have had in a while. I had a half day with my students and then the teachers stayed until 3 to have a chance to clean their classrooms and pack up. The same will go for today and then tomorrow is my last day of school :) It will be bittersweet. I love that summer is starting for me, but I will miss my kids to no end!

My stomach hurt when I woke up yesterday so I didn't eat breakfast. But since my lunch time is 10:45 a.m. I wasn't worried because I knew I would be eating soon. Once lunch time rolled around, I had a piece of leftover broccoli pizza.

After spending the day boxing up my classroom I ran to Hallmark to buy thank you cards to send out to everyone who came to the party on Saturday. I love Hallmark, they have some of the cutest knick knack items in that store. I stopped at the Starbucks next door and got a vivanno to help me plow through the afternoon.

Then I unpacked and cleaned the apartment! I think so much clearer when my apartment is clean!

We leave for Italy on Friday, so when Derek got home from work we headed to my moms to do laundry for the trip. Unfortunately, we don't have a washer & dryer in our apartment and it is a huge hassle. In our next place it is a must!

At my moms I used some leftovers to make a yummy dinner. I used the left over vegetables to make a refreshing salad with carrot ginger dressing. Then I reheated some Cuban slow-roasted pork and put it on  whole wheat ciabatta bread to make a delicious sandwich.

Dessert was an orange :P

Question: I plan to go to Best Buy after work today and invest in a new camera. Does anyone have any recommendations for a point and shoot? With the blog and my upcoming trip to Italy, my current camera is just not cutting it. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated :)

I was at a wedding on Sat and the same thing happened! I kept thinking... should have worn off..?

That slow roasted pork sandwich looks SO good!

Have fun on your trip!!! Will you be blogging while you're gone ?

Bug bites are the worst! I'm a lover of Hallmark too. I worked there in highschool and spent all of my money in the store.
