Photo an Hour

I forgot to take pictures before Saturday, when this prompt was supposed to be posted.  And then, I was going to take the pictures Sunday to share with you on Monday...but alas, I forgot.  So, I set an alarm in my phone for Monday morning, to remind me to take pictures throughout the day. 

Here we go....what my (not-normal-yet) Monday looked like...

 6:30am - Finally awake enough to snap a picture...


7:30 am - At school, having breakfast!!! Monday was the last day of New Teacher Orientation!


 8:30 am - Still in meetings - ALL day orientation!


9:30 am - Potty Break time! Also, the time I realized I didn't put on make up Monday morning.  Lovely...


10:30, 11:30 am - Still in Meetings...I started brainstorming the first day of school, etc.


12:30 - LUNCHTIME!!! Eating lunch in my classroom!


 1:30 pm, 2:30 pm, 3:30 pm - Still meetings...at least there are snacks and chocolate!


 4:30, 5:30 pm - Working in my classroom!  I've got a longgg way to go!



 5:30, 6:30 pm - Dinner and Target with the Sister!!


7:30 pm - Getting some monogram patterns ready...


8:30, 9:30 pm - Blogging, The Bachelorette watching, and crafting until bed!

Doing It All

The past few days have reminded me that I cannot do it all.  I've got so many wonderful things going on in my life, and I seriously have to keep telling myself that I can't do everything I want to do right now!

I've got a new classroom to decorate and set up, and I just need it to be perfect.  I want to have all the things so that my little kindergarteners are just so excited to be there!  I want to plan all the best lessons, and I want to learn how to make a lot of my own activities so my students can have the best learning experience EVER!


 
I eventually want a new blog design/branding...which will be happening soon!  But, I know I won't be able to just be cranking out posts as easily as I can right now, until I get in to the routine of school.  How awesome that I'll just have one job, though!?

I want to sell more embroidery...I want a bigger machine, so that I can do more projects!


We moved in to a rental a few weeks ago, and we're fully unpacked but we still have hung anything on the walls.  I just want to snap my fingers and for our cute little house to look like Pinterest.  Why isn't that happening!?


Of course, I've got to bring myself back to reality and remind myself that I've got SO MUCH going right for me right now and I just need to slow down and enjoy the moments. :)

Can You Guess?

I'm having so much fun doing some DIY projects for my classroom this year!!  I'm hoping all of my ideas and creations will come together, and that it will look awesome! 

I took my one of my plastic crates to Home Depot last night to have them cut some plywood for me...can you guess what this will be?  Hint: I went to JoAnn's yesterday to buy batting and fabric!



I also started crafting this last night....pom poms and clothespins.  Any ideas!?



I'm trying not to overload my social media with school stuff, but I just can't help it!  Be on the lookout for other fun stuff soon!  Like tomorrow, I'll be posting my photo an hour from today's fun!

Currently...

 Currently....

...reading...Rhinestone Jesus by Kristen Welch

...writing...part three of my Social Foundations of Education project

...listening...to iTunes radio.  The Top Pop station is on constantly, and Andrew hates it. :)

...thinking...about how excited I am that TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF TEACHER ORIENTATION!

...smelling...like Bath and Body Work's dancing waters.  It's my all time favorite scent. 

...wishing...that I could do a million things at once.  There's a lot to accomplish in the next week or so!

...hoping...that Andrew makes dinner tonight?

...wearing...something super cute, yet professional.  Today's the first day of orientation, so I've got to make a good first impression, right!?  I've probably got some of my cute Fifth and Mae jewelry on, for sure, though!

...wanting...my blog to magically redesign itself.  I love this design, but once again, I'm itching for a new design. 

...loving...life.  Cheesy...but life is good, am I right!?

...needing...chocolate.  Always chocolate.
