all quiet on the riley front/////utah giveaway week winners

Well kids, summer is officially over and that means I will hardly have any free time and that means my blog might get a little bit quiet, unfortunately. I finally was able to meet with my cooperating teacher for student teaching and he basically handed me the textbook and said, "plan the semester!" so my life just got really insanely busy and that's the way I like it!
This was after I dry heaved in the parking lot. I wasn't aware I would be interacting with students on my first day, I thought I was just meeting my teacher. I introduced myself as Riley. Hashtag face palm, or something.
Again, thanks for participating in my Giveaway Week, Utah Style! Here are the winners!
State Your Pride Necklaces- Laura Nelson
Print from 19letters- Robin Ficklin
Cicada Box- Samantha Gregson
And here are some pictures from the Arcade Fire concert to take you out!
First, a little background. I forgot to tell you guys I am seriously the best wife ever except for the small fact I am the worst. Even though I do nothing, ever, I did get Mark "The Best Present I've Ever Gotten"-Mark which was Arcade Fire tickets when they came to D.C. It was a pricey lil gig but they are Mark's favorite band and he has never seen them live. I have never seen Mark so surprised as when he opened up the tickets clear back in May and it was totally the light at the end of our summer sales tunnel so it was worth every penny. 
The dress code for the concert was formal, which was fun. We were boring and went with masquerade masks which we wore for this picture and then never again. I also spent about an hour making my hair into a mohawk which actually turned out to look like a rooster and you can't even see it at all in this picture. C'est La Vie. At least I wasn't the girl who showed up in the full-blown prom dress. I almost was that girl, you guys. It was way too freaking close for comfort. 

The only picture I got of the actual concert but it was probably the best concert I have ever been to. I keep thinking about how totally awesome it was. The videography that kept happening behind the stage was my favorite part. Man, it was a great way to end our time in Maryland.

Hopefully I won't get too busy that my lil space here will be neglected completely. Aren't Sunday's for writing blog posts? Oh and church. Always church.
