{This Week}

  1. Gigi's cupcakes is closing! I am so so so sad :(
  2. We has storms last night in Missouri, we didn't have any tornados near us but we had crazy lightning! So pretty 
  3. Paper Dahlia Wreath is just so beautiful! Mine turned out okay but it you follow the link you can make one of your own :) 
  4. Homemade donuts! Super easy. Just take a can of biscuits and cut them into fourths and fry them in a pan with some vegetable oil then cover them with cinnamon and sugar! So yummy 


This week has been great and I signed up for the Praxis so I can get certified as a teacher! Life is moving fast and I am ready :)

{Teacher Outfit Tuesday}

Hello friends! Happy Tuesday, tomorrow is Wednesday and so the week is almost half way over! YAY! I have started my internship that is on Tuesday's and Thursday's at a local school and I am enjoying it so far. I have to say that this has been my most comfortable outfit yet! 
Cardigan: JCPenny's Sale $9
Polka Dot Shirt: JCPenny's Sale $9 
Pearl Necklace: Not real $? 
Black Dress Pants: Stolen from my sisters closet and hemmed by my Gram :) 
I also decided to make a yummy smoothy! 
1 Yogurt cup 
Fresh or Frozen fruit: Strawberry's, mango, pineapple, peaches (frozen mix) 
Honey
Milk/Orange juice
and yes Kale :) 

I mixed this all up and blended in a Bullet mixer that is now broken :( that rubber has been rubbing off on its self and making the apartment smell horrible. I wanted a big blender but the Hubs wanted a Bullet mixer...shows you who is smarter :) 
Just Kidding, he is. 

Have a great rest of the week friends!
I am about to watch Frozen!!!!!!!!!!

{Weekend review}

  1. I am addicted to Starbucks I think, which I am okay with at the moment but I think the Hubs is not okay with it. I have discovered iced coffee! (Iced Mocha Macchiato)
  2. Red Robin for my uncle Danny's birthday. I had their French Onion Soup with I hate onions but love the soup. Go figure :) and their southwest wrap which is also amazing. 
  3. My cousin Alex, he is an 8 year old with a mind of his own and he is huge! I mean he is only a second grader but he looks like a fourth grader. I love him, he makes me laugh
  4. Vietnamese Cinnamon. We got this at a Spice store in Branson MO and I am planning on making Cinnamon rolls soon. Turns out that Cinnabon used only a specific cinnamon from a farm who only sells to them but I am hoping that this cinnamon is close to theirs because the Hubs loves cinnamon roles. 
I hope you all had a relaxing weekend like I did. I wanted to buy Frozen but the Hubs said I would get it for a present later :( but I want it now...anyway I can't wait! I love that movie :)

Have a great week friends

{What a Week}

This week has been a week of firsts. The first pictures shows an Iced Mocha Macchiato, which was so amazing and super chocolaty. I enjoyed it a lot! :) 

This is a new salad at Wendy's and it was so amazing I have eaten this salad about 4 times in the past two weeks. I know pretty crazy and a lot of $$$ but it is just so good! Oh it is the Asian Cashew Chicken Salad. It has edamame, cashews and the best dressing ever. I definitely recommend it. 

I also started my internship this week and it has been going really well. I am at a local school all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It is interesting going all day at a school instead of just a few hours. I feel that classrooms are build from their teachers. My teacher is super nice and really great but pretty quit which is different for me. Anyway it has been great so far and I am teaching my first lesson this next Thursday. 

I hope you all are having a great week :)

{Last Night of Spring Break}

Now that I look back over my spring break I did get some stuff done, although not as much as I wanted to. Tomorrow I get back to the grind of school and on Tuesday I start my internship at a local school. 
I had time to spend with my handsome Husband 
Enjoyed some Starbucks! then went shopping :) 
Made a homemade Quiche! Which was super yummy 
and I planted some plants (that I hopefully can keep alive) :) 

I also got my hair cut (see previous post!) and I love it so much. It will be way easier to handle when I start teaching and getting ready early in the morning. Spring break has been good, not the best ever but pretty good. I loved hanging with my husband everyday and just relaxing. 

What do you like to do on vacation/spring break?

{Hair Cut}

I cut my hair off and I love it! I had been growing it out for my wedding and I was ready to go short again. I went pixie short about three years ago so I did not want to go that short again but shoulder length is good for me. I love it already and it is going to be so much easier to fix! 
What do you think?

{Spring Break}

This week has been long and I got sick again! I am so tired of being sick, it sucks really bad. The Hubs got a new shift so I will take him to work at 5:30 AM every day...that is so early. But he gets off at 2:30pm so I get to hang out with him all afternoon! It really is work with 5:30 am drive. Yesterday I finally got around to cleaning the apartment which I only got a little done so I am hoping I will get more done today. Last night I went and got the Hubs and I Andy's frozen custard! The chocolate is so amazing and smooth and PERFECT! I have been on a kick lately and I am sure that over the past week I have had three cups of this stuff. I also made some Quiche this week with spinach and it was really good, the Hubs ate it up. Tomorrow I am going to go clothes shopping with my mom to teacher clothes and I am so excited to get some shoes! One day soon I will take pictures of all my clothes to show you all!

How is  your week going?

{Weekend review}

This past week was crazy so it was nice to have a relaxing weekend. I created a date night jar of sorts and the Hubs picked my name so I planned the date and we were suppose to go out to eat but we decided to go to the Asian store in town and buy dumplings (pict 1) and they are so yummy! I wanted to look nice for our "date" so I put on my red lipstick and took a pict (2). 
I also have wanted to start a garden and so I decided to start out easy and get plants that I can't kill :) and I love my little plants! 
p.s. the Hubs and I have knocked them over twice already...I need to find the right place to put them. 

How was your weekend friends?

{My little garden}

I wanted to start a garden but I am a busy person so I thought I should start one with those super  cool succulent plants, so I did! I bought some planters at Hobby Lobby (p.s. they are cheaper at Lowes and Home Depot) and I bought some paint (Hobby Lobby). I painted my pots gold and coral. I love them! 
It looks pink but it is more coral in person :) 
I love my little plants!!! 

Which one is your favorite? I love them all

{Happy Friday!}

Skirt & T-shirt




I love this skirt and shoes...okay I love the whole outfit! OH and Happy Friday! This is the start of my spring break and I am so excited! My brain needed a break so bad. As a future teacher I had to create a Unit plan with some classmates and it took forever but I am finally done. I had a great time creating it and my group was so great but I am glad it is finished.

I have a lot of things to do this break.

  1. Clean! I am planning on doing some spring cleaning over spring break. 
  2. Go Shopping: for teacher shoes and some statement necklaces. 
  3. Hair cut: Yup I am cutting my long hair. It is getting to long for me to handle and it is driving me nuts. so Next Saturday it is coming off! 
  4. Garden: I want to start a garden so bad so maybe over break I will start :) 
I am also going to relax!  Any suggestions on things I should try over break? Let me know!

{Weekend Review}

This past weekend went really well. I spent time with my parents, ate some yummy Chipotle and I am trying to keep warm! 
Top Left: We were suppose to gets tons of snow and ice but it wasn't as bad as everyone thought. Classes did get canceled for today! 
Top Right: I found these pictures this past Saturday as I was looking through an old album. Kiel and I went to his cousins wedding in Wisconsin and the photo booth was starting to get popular at weddings so we took some picts. It makes me smile :) 
Bottom Left: I am crocheting a blanket and it is taking me FOREVER! but I really love the colors and I am going to keep at it till it is done. 
Bottom Right: As you can see the snow is already melting today but it is still in the single digits. Way to cold for me! Hurry Spring! 

I hope you all had a great weekend! I am trying to get motivated to do homework but it is so hard because Spring Break is next week!!!! 

p.s. What do you like to do on snow days?

{Date Night}

I love date night, I just wish they happened more often! We tend to hang out and go out but when we do it isn't considered a date to me. We usually go grocery shopping or out to stores to walk around but last night we went to a really nice dinner which was really great! I got Shrimp Tempura sushi (2 orders...) and Kiel got chicken rolls and spare ribs. I could have eaten more but it was getting a bit expensive. I do love going out to a nice restaurant! 
I was taking a picture of him so he had to take a picture of me...
The booths are put up next to a huge mirror and yes there is a fish tank in the background
YUM YUM! 

It was a great night! What is your favorite date night??
