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’ve had several people email me asking for things to do in San Francisco, and I’m always excited to share my tips and San Francisco goodies via email, but I’ve never written a blog post about things to do. I’ll have to write one at some point.
After my hair appointment, I trotted around Hayes Valley, got some yogurt from Loving Cup, and went to Cary Lane’s basement sample sale. Hayes Valley is one of my favorite San Francisco neighborhoods!
Yesterday was my first day back to school! Woohoo! I have a great group of sixth grade students; they are so cute and sweet! I always like to wear something for the first day of school. Ah, who’m I kidding? I always like to wear fun things to school (I can’t wait to wear my Phillip Lim for Target BOOM dress this fall)!
Anyway, Samantha from MadeBy sent me this skirt several months ago, and I knew that I’d wear it on the first day of school.
I am 5’7.5″ tall, and while it’s not SUPER TALL, it’s tall enough to worry about hemlines on skirts. I’ve got long legs, so I had to let the hem out on this skirt. The skirt is lined and it sat high waisted on me. Not shown is the pink rear zipper!
Be sure to check out MadeBy for cute modest clothes. I’m designing a dress that will debut sometime this fall. Check out the details here!
