This weekend went by so quickly! Thankfully, I still have one more day before I head back for a four day work week. I always have things on my to do list that never get done over the weekend, so I’m happy to have this extra day! I have really been trying to try new […]

1. I’m jumping on the audio book bandwagon! I am trying out Audible (really because I get a free book), I have been meaning to read Orphan Train, so I decided that would be a good choice. I have currently listened to about an hour of it, and I can’t wait to continue. It’s great […]

4:11 AM – Roll over and look at the clock. Woohoo! After what seemed like forever (okay, like 5 days), I finally got a solid chunk of sleep. Between the girls teething and the husband coughing, I hadn’t slept well in days. 5:10 AM – Alarm clock goes off. Snooze. 5:18 AM – Alarm clock […]

January 14, 2015

Remember the goal I shared with you about a month ago? That I wanted to read some classics? Well… that just hasn’t happened yet. I have a copy of The Catcher in the Rye on my nightstand, but it has yet to be touched. Oh well – I have read some good books over the […]

Brooklyn Grace Jibber Jabber. That’s been your MO for the past month or so. What used to be real words coming out of your mouth has turned into a different language all of its own.

I don’t know what got into me this weekend, but I was totally on par with the whole meal planning shennanigans. Usually when I meal plan, I stick with our classic rotations, and I’ll throw a new meal into the mix every once in a while. Well, this girl spent a great deal of time […]

1. You know what cold day I had on Wednesday? Well, it turned into another cold day yesterday. I’m back in school today, but I really enjoyed a little “weekend” in the middle of the week. And it’s FRIDAY! Woot woot!! 2. I totally drifted from what my original meal plan was for the week. […]

A year ago (pretty much to the day) I had a few days off because of a “polar vortex” that made its way through Chicago. The SAME thing is happening right now, and I have the day off today. The winds in Chicago are going to be around –35 degrees, so no school for me. […]

Is it too late to do an obligatory “beginning of the year post”? I hope not, because I’ve got one for you today! First of all – HOW is it 2015? This is just mind boggling to me! Looking back at 2014, I have to say that it may have been one of my favorite […]

Happy Monday! The day has come – back to work I go! I had such a fun two weeks off with the girls, but I’m excited to see my students again and see how their breaks were. I didn’t take any pictures at all this weekend, but it was a fun one. On Friday night […]
