    Weekly Catch Up 5.30

    Hi y’all, This past week I spent 4 days completing Responsive Classroom Training. I actually already knew the majority of it since I’ve worked in a district that uses Responsive Classroom. It was super time consuming though so I didn’t get much else done. I did run to the post office a few times, but other than that I was sitting in front of my computer on Zoom. Next week, I do have some stuff to do on Monday, though so hopefully it’ll be a little more energizing. I’m also trying really hard to have a weekly YouTube video up, make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out! This…

    May 2020 Book Chat

    May Book Chat Hi y’all, May absolutely flew by, and its already time for another Book Chat. I’ve read a bunch of books this month to share with y’all. June and July won’t have as many books because I’m taking two grad classes (two 16-week courses pushed into 8 weeks). I will be taking Children’s Literature though, so I might share a few droplets of new knowledge from that course for moms and teachers. Anyway, onto the Book Chat! Reckless Memories by Catherine Cowles–5/5 stars I loved a few books by Catherine as mentioned here. I jumped on this new book when I saw it available in the Apple Bookstore.…

    Best Workout & Lounge Clothes

    Hi y’all, Happy Monday! As we’re all pretty much spending way more time than usual at home, I thought I would share some of my absolute favorite workout & lounge wear. For me, they pretty much double because I lounge in my workout wear all the time. These are all my tried and true loves that I wear constantly and continuously buy. I shop for workout wear mostly at Nordstrom and Athleta. However, the nearest Nordstrom to me is supposedly closing so I’m not sure what I’ll decide to do in the future. If you need a new workout, try this one! Favorite Leggings: Zella “Live In” High Waist Crop…

    Weekly Catch Up 5.23.20

    Hi y’all, Happy Saturday! I hope y’all had a great week. Mine was pretty busy. I finished up the last bit of virtual teaching for the school year. I will really miss my students that I had this year, and I’m really sad I missed out on the last quarter. We did our virtual promotion ceremony last night and it just wasn’t the same as being there in person. I’ve been vlogging all this week, and will continue into the weekend, so you’ll have a new YouTube video on Tuesday! On the blog this week: Favorite Shoes Grad School at UVA (YouTube Video) What a Month of Spending during Quarantine…

    Tips to Finding Happiness

    Hi y’all, If you’ve known me for any length of time, you know I constantly have an ARF (Angry Resting Face). It’s also no secret that upper elementary, middle, and high school were not great times for me. I went to college where hardly anyone from my hometown went to school (and like 5 people including myself from my own high school). I did this on purpose. I know that I’m very fortunate to have two loving and supportive parents, a pretty good family, a great job, and so much more. All of that doesn’t guarantee a person happiness, though. Something I’ve noticed about myself in quarantine is that I…

    A Month of Spending | Quarantine

    Hi y’all, I’m sure like everyone else, my town has been relatively shut down for the past months (since March 13th). I thought it would be fun and interesting to see what I spend in a month when I really wasn’t going anywhere. I pulled up all of my credit card statements (I don’t use cash ever) and took a look. Keep in mind I’m a teacher and in grad school, so my priority is saving money right now. I’m going to try and organize this by date and since I’m doing a month, I figured I’d do it April 18-May 18th. 4/26-Kendra Scott     $82.55 (this is one of their…

    Graduate School at UVA

    Hi y’all, It really isn’t a secret that I’m a grad student at the University of Virginia. I made this YouTube video all about the application process to the Curry School of Education and Human Development, what classes are like, what my degree is in, etc. Please take a quick second and hit subscribe on YouTube! It’s my goal to be doing weekly vlogs and I don’t want y’all to miss anything. My internet is not the best for uploading (like it took almost 24 hours to upload this video) but I will make it happen for y’all! You can check out my last YouTube video here. Thanks for watching!…

    Favorite Spring/Summer Shoes

    Hi y’all, I will be the first person to say I have horrible feet! I have something called claw toes and they can be extremely painful. I actually had surgery on them when I was little because they were so painful, I refused to walk. We’re getting to the point again where they are painful, but I am trying to not have any surgeries until I’m done with grad school. I’ve also injured my feet pretty badly in the past. I’ve sprained my foot multiple times. I’ve been on crutches, in a walking boot, and received 3 months of physical therapy. Needless to say, I try my best to take…

    Weekly Catch Up 5.16

    Hi y’all, I was thinking of ways that I could create a series and make sure y’all got to see some everyday life. This led me to the Weekly Catch Up. It’s essentially a coffee date, but I don’t drink coffee so I wanted it to be a little more realistic to my authentic life. This week I created my last assignments of the 2019-2020 school year! Wooo. I’m definitely going to miss this group of kids, but I still have them next week for two more read alouds and their virtual promotion ceremony. I’ll also get to see some when do belonging pick up (hopefully in June but could…
