Life Lately

Hey y'all, happy Monday! I can't believe the weekend is already over. I made it through my first FULL week of school last week, which is always a struggle. Getting used to my 4 am alarm when I've been sleeping in until 7:30 throughout the summer has been rough, but I'm hoping it will be a little easier this week. Other than that, I had an amazing first full week with my 3rd graders. My students are seriously the SWEETEST and I feel so blessed to be their teacher. I'm looking forward to week 2!

Today is going to be a little crazy because we are spending our school day participating in different "stations" set up throughout our school to celebrate the solar eclipse, and then we will be able to watch the eclipse as a school this afternoon. I'm super excited to experience this with my class.'s a little look at life lately...

Last weekend this guy and I had dinner with his side of the family, went canoeing, had a lazy Saturday afternoon, and spent our Sunday morning running errands after church.

I spent Sunday evening trying to do a little planning for the upcoming school week. #teacherlife

And made a delicious no-bake cookies and cream cheesecake. It was SO easy. I'll be sharing the recipe on the blog later this week.

Now that school has started back, I've started using my crock pot again. I think I had forgotten how much I love coming home to dinner being ready. It was a life-saver this past week on the days I had to stay late at school. I used this Cilantro Lime Chicken Pinterest recipe and used the chicken to make tacos/nachos.

How CUTE is this shirt that my mother-in-law surprised me with last week after my first two days of school? I wore it for jean day on Friday and am in love.

We had a lazy Friday evening and were in bed by 8:30. ;)

Saturday morning we headed to town to run some errands. I had to get my oil changed and we had to run to Target to pick up a few things. I can never go into Target and get only what is on my list. I ended up picking up a few things for my classroom, and a new swimsuit. They had all of their swimsuits on clearance so I just couldn't resist. 

And...we had lunch at one of our favorite spots.

Yesterday we did what we do every Sunday, Starbucks, and errands.

And... we had brunch at our go-to after church lunch spot.

Sundays are our favorite. <3

I hope y'all have the BEST week!


  1. My 4 am alarm is taking a bit to get used to as well! I love getting up early and getting so much accomplished, but it's early to bed for me!!

  2. Me too girl! We have been going to bed around 8:00 most nights here lately. ;)
