Gone with the Week

Hello again! I’ve been MIA the past couple weeks on the blog because last week was spring break and this week was the crazy busy week post-spring break where professors realize they only have half a semester left to assign every project known to man. I hope to do a recap soon of my spring […]

Warmer Weather

  The roommate and I are currently watching a complete season of Full House while enjoying these pre-spring break snacks. It’s midnight but we figure we have nine hours in the car tomorrow so we can sleep then. SPRING BREAK IS HERE.   We are going somewhere warm and beach-y with 24 hour free food […]

Shamrock Pretzels

I mentioned a few posts ago that I was going to share a fun St. Patrick’s Day recipe with you. Since I have a lot of Irish in my heritage, I love St. Patrick’s Day and plan on celebrating it in my classroom each year. These pretzels are very easy to make and quite fun. […]

Snow Days

We are currently on day two of classes cancelled due to snow and ice! This picture was taken today as the snow was melting, but yesterday everywhere was a sheet of ice. When I woke up on Monday and saw classes were cancelled, I was too excited to sleep in so I got up and […]

Party with the Preschoolers

The preschool Valentines Day party was a hit! Two and a half year olds are kind of young for a big celebration, but we were able to create some fun memories. The holiday I remember the most from elementary school days is Valentines Day because I LOVED decorating a box and making valentine cards for […]

Gone with the Week

We are exactly four weeks away from spring break and I am very excited! We have been back at school for a month now, but it seems longer. I live by my ┬áplanner and it has to-do’s written on every line. It’s not too bad though, I enjoy my classes and working with my preschoolers […]

Tuesday Tidbits

I may be telling you the best news on the planet: Chick-fil-a is giving away free hot and iced coffee the entire month of February! Every. Single. Day. Allie and I have accepted to challenge to go as many days as possible. We went there today for our Tuesday devotional and have already planned to […]

Always Bars

    I like to call these bars, “Always Bars” because they can really be eaten at anytime of the day. They have protein (oats, eggs, chia seeds), fruit (apple sauce, coconut, optional: raisins), and fun (dark chocolate, cinnamon). They are not sugar free, but most of the sugar is naturally occurring in the dark […]

Educational Cookies

I have a night class each week for two hours called, Best Practices in Education. We basically learn all the up-to-date Common Core Standards and best teaching methods research is currently reporting. I enjoy the class for the most part (other than groups projects…I die a little inside when I hear a professor say group […]

Scenes from Christmas.

Christmas was excellent this year. Snow on Christmas day. A million cookies of every shape and size. Family and friends home. Christmas ham. Cozy fires in the fire-place. Family games. Movie night. New clothes. Light shows. Thank you Jesus for coming into our world with one main mission: save the lost. Merry Christmas! Here’s to […]
