Happy Friday lovies.
Happy last day of September. Is it just me or has this year just flown by? I've already brought out my Halloween pj's and I will literally rotate between the few pairs I have and sleep in them every single night until Halloween.

Also, I'm flying solo today at school. I'm shadowing the lady who has been filling in, but she is out today so let's hope everything goes as smoothly as possible.

Have a wonderful day peeps!

Wake UP

I'm starting my new job tomorrow...eeekkk!!
I'm not posting too much info about it on the ole' blog, but I'm filling in for the kindergarten resource teacher in an inclusive setting. I'm super excited and ready to meet the kids and get to know the people I will be working with.

I will be at the same school where my sister in law teaches and where my nephew goes to kindergarten. I dreamed about working as this school for so long so I am stoked.

I'll post again soon, but until then I wanted to share this video that my sister in law shared with me tonight. I love Need To Breathe and this song is amazing. This video is so eye-opening.

Happy Wednesday lovies.

What is meant to be, will be...

I'm back and reality has hit full force.

I loved Mexico, everything about it...the company, the food, the weather, the adventure, the culture...everything!!

I am very very behind on blogging, but I'm hoping to get back on track and do some catching up.
I have had an amazing 3 weeks that I can't wait to share with you guys.
For now, I am updating my 101 in 1001. It's crazy how much stuff I did in the past few weeks.

To top everything off, I got a very exciting email while I was in Mexico...that there was a position open for special ed and they wanted me to come in for an interview. I got home Sunday night at 9 and had an interview Monday morning at 8. And....

I am now employed and can't wait to start on Thursday. I am filling in for an indefinite amount of time as a kindergarten resource teacher. I will be working with students in an inclusive setting. I am literally on the verge of exploding with excitement.

I hope to update again soon with more about my vacation. Until then, happy Tuesday!

Miscellany Monday

Write random and link up.

I am loving being at the beach...even though the weather has been really bad. The wind today got up to 25 MPH. It shattered the table on one of our balcony's. INSANE! We sucked it up and attempted the beach this morning. It was nice, windy, but still pretty and kind of sunny until around 1:30. When it started raining, I ran to the pool to get our bags and the wind completely knocked me over. It scared me to death...I felt like the wind was just gonna pick me right up. I have a huge strawberry and bruise on my bottom. On a positive note, starting tomorrow we are supposed to have great weather.

I am so ready to lay out and read my book from sun up to sun down...

Each couple/sibling does dinner 1 night of the week that way every night is covered and we don't have to individually plan/cook dinner every night. Tonight is my night and I am doing taco salad. It's so easy and so yummy.

I am loving having my best friend, Heather, her husband, and our friend, Mandy, on my family vacation this year. My family can get a bit crazy at times....the Kardashians don't have anything on us so I am glad that my friends can handle this loud bunch.

I am still sick, but coping. I feel like I have gotten good rest the past 2 nights so I am getting better. I feel much better today than I did yesterday.

{Bachelor Pad}
So ready for tonight's episode. Yes, I am still watching it even though I am on vacation. It's too nasty to do anything outside anyways.

{Happy everything}
Happy Labor Day...hope everyone is enjoying their day off.
Happy Mingling!!

Happy Monday lovies.

Sunday Funday

I know I was MIA last blogpress app on my phone hasn't been working and we all know that without that, I can hardly find them motivation to blog.

I have had a wonderful weekend. Friday afternoon I packed up and headed to Tuscaloosa to visit my long lost friend, Melissa. We had so much fun hanging out just like old times (AKA college).
I love this girl!
Saturday, we got an early start for the Bama game.
Unfortunately, I was feeling a little sick and the heat was killing me so I had to leave the game shortly after kickoff. I was totally bummed, but was so excited to hit the road for PCB. My family vacation is this week, but we are all stuck inside due to the tropical storm.
On top of that, I am sick! I have a really bad cold, but I am making the most of it.

I am super excited about this trip. It's a big group....
My mom and step dad
My sister, Jenn, her husband, Mike, and their 2 girls (Blakely & Londyn Kate)
My sister, Kim, her husband, and their baby boy (Colin)
My brother Justin
My friend, Heather, and her husband
My friend Mandy
My cousin, Edward, and his wife Thu
and 3 of their cousins.

What a group, huh?

Anyways, the bad weather is supposed to pass by tomorrow night so I am looking forward to lots of pool, beach, and sun time starting early Tuesday morning.

Happy Sunday lovies!!
I will update again soon.
