If this isn’t a severe case of the Mondays I don’t know what is…
Also I promise I haven’t forgotten about you! I have just been so swamped with school and work that I haven’t had a chance to get my posts together!! But don’t worry I absolutely LOVE my job and am so passionate about what I am studying!! I can’t even call it stress that I am under because I love the challenge that each day brings. My problem solving skills are constantly being tested :) I have so much to tell you and so little time, just know that all is well on the home front! Hope all is well with you!!
Happy Friday everyone!!
I wonder if this would work on my students… Just kidding. (A little bit)
Calvin and Hobbes gets me every. single. time.
My sister and I finally had a girl’s night. it is something that was WAY overdue. We did some shopping, went to our favorite restaurant and saw “This Is Where I Leave You.” It was so much fun!!
**also we are definitely sisters. we showed up wearing almost the exact same outfit**
As you may know (if you have been following my blog recently) my birthday is this week. Thursday to be exact. and this year I have the honor to spend it in Washington DC!! I couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate.
DC has been on the top of my travel list for pretty much my entire life. I have never been over to the East coast and I think DC will be just the right fight for me. I expect it to be epic.
I am leaving late Wednesday night and I have a mile long to-do list before then so plan on limited to no posts this week. I will make sure to post pictures as we go and as always I will write a reflection about how it feels to be 25. At first I was like “man, I am old” but everyone I have talked to feels like I have been 25 years old for a while now so I guess I am finally acting my age?? who knows. age is relative right? I’ll keep telling myself that…
Happy Week everyone!!
Talk to you soon.
To add to the craziness of the day yesterday I came home from work and ate candy before dinner. #Rebel
My weekend was super busy and my beginning of the week is even busier!! I will be back with a weekend post on Wednesday so until then I wish you all a happy week!!
Happy Friday Everyone!!
I was talking to one of the teachers yesterday and she was saying how fast the days go by and slow the weeks feel. Does that make sense to anyone else because I could relate. At the end of every day I am like “man today flew by I can’t believe it is already over” but every morning I am like “it’s only wednesday”, or “it’s only tuesday” or my favorite, “is it friday yet”?
Anyways, although the week has dragged ever so slightly it was still a good one. and my birthday is only TWO weeks away. sweet.
1. My sister finally tracked down a Target near us that sells our favorite Kind bar. Caramel Sea Salt. it is as good as it sounds, I promise. She bought me a box and I can’t wait to devour it.
2. I played another big point word in scrabble. It was by total surprise. One of those I wonder what will happen if I put the z right there…. well it accepted “zine” as a word even though I am still thinking it shouldn’t have.
3. My cousin was out in Washington D.C. this week as a representative for the American Cancer Society. As a part of raising money and awareness they organize a luminary walk where people buy bags ahead of time and decorate them. She was able to find the ones I made…
4. Wednesday was a really long day with work and class. I got home late and was ravenous. Sitting on the counter was a plastic spoon from yo mammas. I began to cry in envy that my boyfriend had gone without me. Turns out it was a surprise for me. He layered four of my favorite flavors!! #BoyfriendOfTheYear
5. My boyfriend is being featured in his first gallery night tonight!! I am so proud and excited for him. You can find out more information about his work at https://www.facebook.com/LyraPhotographyWI?fref=ts or look up Lyra Photography on Facebook and follow him. He does some pretty amazing stuff!!
well that’s all for now. I hope your weeks treated you well and went by fast! Enjoy your friend and more importantly enjoy your weekend.
Talk to you soon.
hello friends. I just wanted to check in and say it has been a pretty uneventful week thus far.
I am extremely busy. extremely tired. and extremely happy. I absolutely LOVE my job and get more and more excited for each day as they come.
I had no idea how much fun it would be to get to know EVERY kid in the school. It’s such a nice feeling to walk down the halls and know every person who walks by. It makes me feel so good. and as usual the kindergarteners are giving me such an ego boost this year.
my self-esteem is at it’s all time high! :)
I hope your week is going well!
Talk to you soon.
boy you came fast.
my weekend was very nice and relaxing, just what I look for in a weekend.
Saturday I ran my tenth annual Briggs and Stratton Al’s Walk for Children’s Hospital. while I didn’t feel ready and was a bit nervous about what the 8k might do to me, I finished it in record time. It was a great way to kick off the day.
Later in the afternoon Max and I went to Ikea to pick out picture frames for his up coming gallery night. I have not been to Ikea in YEARS! On the way down I was given strict instructions that we were going to picture frames and that was it. I was not able to leave Max’s side or wander off to look. In doing so he would buy me an ice cream cone at check out. I agreed. hesitantly.
well, for those of you who have been to Ikea you that it is every girl’s dream. It’s not the kind of place where you can just run in and out quickly without catching a glimpse at what it has to offer. The trip started off just as planned. We went right to picture frames and stood there debating between which ones to get. When we finally got it all figured out Max went to the bathroom.
this was my chance. I had about three minutes to wander and grab as much as I possibly could. It was like I was on supermarket sweep, running to find the best deals possible!!
The restrooms were conveniently placed near the kitchen area. I quickly went up and down the aisles grabbing things I liked. I ended up with a glass casserole dish, some patterned drinking glasses, a tea steeper, a few candles and a pack of washcloths. I snuck the items into our cart and went back to waiting.
I was not as sneaky as I thought. I was caught red handed. Max beat me to our meeting area and was less than thrilled about my little adventure. but I didn’t care. I just HAD to. It was so hard to stand there watching everyone else shop and not participate!!
In the end I was not able to get an ice cream cone. but it was totally worth it. I am already planning my return to Ikea where I can actually take my time and shop. Now I just need a bigger apartment…
On another note, Max began regretting his decision not to buy me a snack in Ikea when I began complaining about how hungry I was. We stopped for Jamba Juice and I veered from my usual order of the Caribbean Passion with an energy boost and settled for the Berry Booster which had fruits AND vegetables. I decided I was better off not knowing exactly what was in it and just enjoying the flavors. which I did.
Sunday was spent doing laundry, working on homework and cleaning. Nothing too exciting but a perfect way to get ready for my busy week.
Hope you had a nice weekend!! Have a wonderful Monday!
