Life Lately

Happy Thursday friends! I know I've been a little MIA on the blog for the past few weeks, but life has been so busy! I've been working in my classroom, and trying to soak up what little time off I have left. This is my last full week of summer break before teacher meetings start next week, and then open house and our first day back the week after that.

 Summer has absolutely flown by, and while I'm excited for a new school year, I'm going to miss all of the free time, along with extra time I've had to spend with Chase. Since we're on opposite schedules, I only see him on weekends during the school year. When I'm on a school break I try to soak up the time I get to spend with him before he goes into work for the night.

It's been a while since I've done a Life Lately post, so I figured I'd share a little bit about what we've been up to during the month of July.

We spent our 4th on the lake with family, followed by pool time and a cookout.

After a full day of the lake, pool, and good food we went to town with BIL & SIL to watch some fireworks.

I spent the day exploring Nashville with my SIL. We hit up Home Goods, German Town, Trader Joes and all of our favorites on 12th South.

We had our first BarTaco experience and it was a hit.

One of my favorite parts about summertime is having a quiet morning with coffee & my daily devotion. 

My goal was to make it to the gym at least 4 days a week every week this summer, and I've stuck to that goal pretty well. There have only been two weeks when I haven't made it all 4 days, and one of those was on our beach trip. I'm going to try my best to make it at least 3 days once school starts back. 

July has been filled with alllll the pool days.

& I can't get enough of the pretty summer sunsets from my front porch.

A little before and after sneak peak of my classroom. It has come a long way since both of these pictures, and I plan on doing a reveal once it's all finished. Chase has helped me in my classroom for the past two weekends and I'm SO thankful for all he's done.

Afternoon naps and cuddles with my sweet Sam have been a favorite this summer.

Last weekend Kelci and I went to the Shania Now concert in Louisville and she was AMAZING.

We had dinner downtown at Impellizzeri's before heading into the concert.

We were SO excited for Shania and she did not disappoint. 

On Sunday we celebrated my sister at her wedding shower, and unfortunately I didn't get any pictures. This week I've been trying to get some things done around the house, work on my Masters Class, and soak up my last few days of summer.
That's all I've got for y'all!
Hope you're having the best day!
