Currently // August

Watching// Nothing of my choosing haha. Kinsey has been wanting to watch Goosebumps and its actually very entertaining!
Reading//The Secret Keeper: A Novel by Kate Morton. After Stephanie's rave review I was so excited to see this book in my Free Little Library! The only reason I haven't finished it yet is time; I've been setting up my classroom and battling a killer cold so, no time for leisure. I will say that Morton has a fantastic writing style and that the story goes between the present day (2011) and 1941 seamlessly.
Dreaming of// All things Fall.
Eating// Homemade chicken noodle soup and Cold Chaser pill packs and a steady dose of Dayquil.
Going//  Back to work!
Loving// That the transition has been smooth. Brielana has been so good for Brian and my mom, it really makes my work life easier.
Planning// With two different school schedules to work with, it's been interesting mapping out this year on the calendar.
Pinning// Classroom decor ideas.
Praying// For good health (I really take that one for granted.) For my Papa's continued improvement from his stroke. 
Texting// Kinsey's teacher #RoomMomLife ;)
Wearing// Give me ALL the stripes!
Trying// To meal plan. Again.
Hoping// For a great school year, for Kinsey and myself.
Decorating// My Preschool classroom has gotten the most attention this past week. It's taken me a bit longer to set it up (I guess two years out of the loop really has taken it's toll lol) but it's been fun. But tiring.
To-do listing// I still have a few things I want to do in my classroom, the top item being getting some green plants. As odd as that sounds, greenery really adds a soothing and natural vibe.

  1. Girl, I'm excited for fall too! And you always look so amazing in stripes! I love your clothes so much.

  2. Can I come shop in your closet please? I'm so ready for falls & to have our windows open!

  3. Love that striped outfit! And while I know you went back to work this fall, is this a really new thing or were you just off for the summer? I can't believe I don't know the answer to this!

  4. You wear stripes better than anyone I know friend. I was this close to picking up that exact same tank I think (assuming it was from Target). Your kids are gonna be so dang lucky to have you as their teacher.

  5. So every time Mila has seen the preview for Goosebumps, she goes nuts and wants to see it. She's normally not one to get scared (her favorite movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas) but I'm torn on whether to let her watch this or not. What's your opinion - too much for a 3 year old?

  6. I'd definitely send my kids to you for preschool if I could!! Hope you and Kinsey have a great school year!

  7. That striped shirt with that skirt, so perfect! How fun to get to put together your classroom, your kids are going to have a blast!

  8. Mason loves Goosebumps!! He even watches the series on Netflix. Have y’all tried those? Friend, I adore that outfit with the stripes. You are so cute!

  9. Oh that book!! I just love love love love it. Please let me know what you think when you've finished.

  10. Goosebumps is a show? I LOVED those books when I was a kid.
    I *think* I have The Secret Keeper downloaded, I need to double check, because if not, I need to fix that!
    Those STRIPES! Yes. Give me all of them. Along with a healthy dose of fall weather (even though I'm totally aware it won't feel like fall here until about January... >eye roll emoji<).
    Lifting prayers for good healthy and continued improvements for your Papa.

  11. I think I TOTALLY missed that you're going back to work! Good luck! I'm reading the same book right now!

  12. Look at you stripe cutie pie!! I bet your classroom rocks!!

  13. Thank you for the book tip; I'm always looking for a good read (although I have little time too with a full-time job and an eight year-old son). It sounds like you're ready for an awesome school year. Hope you're feeling better and wishing the best for Papa. Health is so important! Happy September!
