Weekend Recap

I can't believe the weekend is already over. These past few weeks have been really busy and honestly pretty stressful. We've been doing our state testing at school, which we will finish up tomorrow (thank goodness), and I have been applying and interviewing for teaching positions. Knowing that there are only EIGHT days of this school year left, and that after that I'll have a big break is one of my biggest motivators at the moment.

My weekend started out pretty rough. When I got hired last July I knew that the teaching positing I'm currently in was just a one year position, and as a new teacher fresh out of college, I was just thankful that I found a job. With that being said, trying to find a new job has been a pretty stressful process. I had an interview last week at the school where I've always pictured myself ending up teaching (I went to school here, did my student teaching here, and my dad taught here before he passed away). I found out on Friday that they decided to go with someone else for the position, and I was pretty devastated. I know that it's all in God's hands and I will end up where I'm meant to be, but it's still been a hard few days.

When I got home from work Friday, I really didn't feel up to doing much. Chase and I got takeout and spent our night just hanging out at home catching up on some of our favorite shows. This was exactly what I needed after the crazy day that I had.

Saturday morning I caught up on Grey's and had some "me" time while Chase ran some errands with his dad. I spent some time reading my bible and kept going back to these verses:

Saturday afternoon Chase and I did some last minute Mother's Day shopping for our mama's and had Mexican for dinner.

 Sunday we spent our morning at church and then took our moms out to lunch.
So thankful for my sweet mama and everything she's done for me.

So thankful for my mother-in-law as well.

Sunday's are our favorite. :)

Sunday afternoon I napped, and spent some time meal prepping for the week.

How did y'all spend your weekend?

On an unrelated note...I am OBSESSED with my leather cuff that I got in the mail last week. I ordered it from Farm Girl Paints Etsy shop and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I'm already trying to decide what to order next.



  1. Ugh! What a bummer! Know this.. God has greater plans for you! Trust in his timing! Praying you find the perfect fit for your new teaching position!! Enjoy these last few days! We can make it to the end!!

  2. I am so sorry that you didn't get the position that you wanted. I really hope you find something soon and will love it even more. Sounds like the rest of the weekend was a good one though!

  3. Awe I'm sorry the position you wanted didn't work out! Everything happens for a reason and you will definitely end up where you're meant to! I totally needed to read those verses right now! Thanks for sharing!

    1. You're so right! And no problem girl, I'm glad they spoke to you. :)
