Did I tell you guys about the petition they started? Towards the end of school year, 100+ kids got together and started a petition for me to move up as a 7th grade teacher. It was very, very sweet. I got numerous emails over the summer asking if I was planning on becoming a 7th grade teacher for the 2015-16 school year, and I had to tell them no. When I saw the kids once school started, one of them said, “BUT WE STARTED A PETITION! THIS WAS A DONE DEAL!” I had to explain that that’s not how a petition works. His response? “Ugh. I hate the government.” Hahahahaha
I taught 7th grade two years ago, and woooooo! Seventh graders ain’t no joke, ya’ll! They are the middle children of middle school. Sixth graders are the babies, while 8th graders are the older children. Sixth graders still love you a little tiny bit, and many 8th graders are slightly more mature. Seventh grade? Jesus be a fence of protection! I’m still suffering from 7th grade PTSD! ;0)
I’ll be back tomorrow featuring a skirt SevenTwo Denim sent me. Check out their site!
I’m wearing a dress a bought from Amazon last week, a clutch purse I bought from the Alameda Flea right before my wedding three years ago, and some suuuuuper old black sandals (similar below).
I ended up buying the smaller version of this Ban.do planner, and I shared it on Instagram and Facebook. Well, guess what? I ended up not keeping it! 😱 I KNOW! I really, REALLY wanted a spot with times for me to write what I wanted to accomplish during that time frame.
While I was at Target, I found these 5.5 x 8.5 Mara-Mi binders. Right next to the planners were these Avery agenda inserts, so I bought those and some note pages. The daily planner starts at 8 and ends at 5, and I figured that’s okay for now, though I usually start my day around 5:00 A.M. I kept toying around with all of this, and I realized what I really wanted to keep track of are my health and fitness goals and my prayer and Bible reading. I’m not ready to hold on to two different planners, but I figured the Avery inserts would be good for daily and weekly Bible reading and praying, and these printable food and wellness pages would help me stay focused on my health and fitness goals.
I purchased the downloadable file because I want to be able to print them out whenever I want to. Plus, I have access to a printers, copy machines, paper cutters, and hole punchers. Be sure to take a look at this Etsy find; if you don’t want to print yours, the Etsy seller also offers a notepad version. Read more: Continue reading →
I’m wearing a dress I found on eBay, and some sandals I bought last year. I cannot for the life of me remember where I bought them!
I’m linking up with The Style Files.
I ended up taking the hem and tying it in a knot, but my final goal is to cut off two inches off and hem the dress.
When I went out of town in May for a few of days, I only took this dress, a pair of heels, a pair of sandals, a kimono top, a chambray shirt, a cross-body purse, and a striped shirt. I easily had four outfits, I didn’t have to pack a ton of stuff, and my husband was very happy.
One question that might cross through your mind is, “If you wear the same thing for three days, how do you keep it clean?”
