Five for Friday...errr Saturday {July 17th}

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to bring you my Five for Friday...now past midnight, so Five for Saturday! I have now learned the importance of drafting this post in the beginning of the week. 

On Thursday my fiance and I booked our wedding venue. Save the date {July 2, 2016} The venue we I wanted (lets be real, he doesn't really care about too much about the details) is highly sought after due to the price and do it yourself mentality. You out source EVERYTHING, which is awesome because it is so personalized and kind of a nightmare because you have to hire everyone. Overall, it will work for our theme (country chic) and our budget. 

 I joined the bandwagon. Ashley Schroeder posted on her instagram about how she organizes her clip art and fonts. I was curious about how you big names do this. Of course to learn how she does it you have to join Periscope...so I caved. You can find me @theyoungandeducated. Butttt. I'm not doing anything except cyber stalking and giving hearts (if you've watched a scope - I think thats what they call it- you know what I mean, jellybean). You can watch Ashley... She's doin' something. Also, turn off the chat, it's annoying.

(now I am - kind of)

I participated in my first flash Friday freebie...It was a flop. Haha. Too early in the game, not enough followers, I don't know. I was reading an instagram post (#addicted) and Techie Teacher Turtle said that in a scope she watched they talked about the importance of supporting each other. Therefore the hashtag #littlefishteacherblogger was born. I'm just a small fish blogger. However, not giving up on this social media aspect of this. 

Check it out in my store

I ordered my Erin Condren planner this week. I am super excited for 3 reasons
1) It is so pretty (I love teal)
2) They have cool date stickers to put inside
3) This is my last year as Ms. Wilson... Next year Mrs. Cahill!

On Sunday the soon to be Mr. and I leave for Cancun for a week. Almost all of July we have been on the go. I can't complain because we have been having such a great time. I just wish my washer hadn't quit on me right as I need to pack! It's like it knew! Grrr. Thankfully my dad is Mr. Fix it and is 90% finished with it.

Weekly Summer Link Up - The Best Trip of My Life

I am linking up with Miss Monica at I Heart Grade 3 to share with YOU... the best trip of my life!

I have been on several amazing vacations. I have been to Europe, Cancun, and Hawaii to name a few. However, nothing compares to my trip the Bahamas. My boyfriend has to choose his vacation dates a year in advance. He had selected a the last week in June off and it was great because I was out of school. We didn't have anything planned for that week, we just knew it was summer. As it was getting closer we started discussing what we wanted to do. We talked about going to New York to visit his family or San Francisco to sightsee. One night he called me and told me about this cruise he found that was reasonably priced. He was sold and so was I.

We live in California, so we flew to Miami to board the ship.

The first night we had dinner and played a little BINGO. We know how to live it up, don't be jealous!

The next day we went to beautiful CocoCay. We went snorkeling had drinks on the white sandy beach and relaxed to the max. I still don't have any pictures from there since we bought a disposable waterproof camera. Who develops film these days...

Anywho...that night at dinner he told me he wanted to go to the rooftop bar on the top of the ship and have drinks and watch the waves. I agreed because who doesn't love a good cocktail while enjoying the sights.

Once we got to the bar my boyfriend said ,"Wow, this is perfect." Little did I know WHY it was perfect. We waited around for the waiter to come by and he never did. He said he was going to go look for him. When he came back he said that he couldn't find the waiter, but he was holding a ring box. He opened it and I'm pretty sure my mouth was open.

He said many romantic things (that I barely remember since I was in shock) and asked me to be his wife .

Needless to say, this is why this very recent trip was the best trip of my life!

Here are a few other pictures of Nassau. We tried a fresh coconut drink (disgusting!), conch (calamari like) and native beer.
