Despite all of these potentially blah-inducing events, it all worked out. My students were (more or less) behaved trooping to and fro when taking pictures. My boyfriend braved tropical storm weather conditions just to visit me. And Benefit's makeup works WONDERS to cover up zits.

Something else making this week worthwhile -- its finale. Ricky and I are going to Orlando this weekend, where we'll be visiting (WAIT FOR IT... WAIT FOR IT...) the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. FINALLY! Le boyf has hinted at getting me some early birthday gifts at WWHP (like maybe a wand OMG). I am so excited, I can't even... *insert squee here*
What are you doing this weekend, my lovies? Let me know in the comments!
