Miscellany Monday

Hello Monday!

Write random and link up with Lowercase Letters.


I'm excited to announce that I have a "real" outfit post scheduled for later this week.
No more bathroom's, my friends!
Hold the excitement, I didn't say it was permanent, but I'm making an attemp.
And the red, tacky thing on my shoe would be my pedometer.
I was the top stepper in my entire school last week.
 but now I think I'm just addicted to seeing how many steps I get each day.

 {obsess, much}
at least it's only $1.99 a pop
My new colors that I bought this weekend. 
I have to purchase at least one, but usually in sets of three, every time I walk into a store. 
OOPS...I just can't help myself.

{Break time}
Sunday was spent cleaning, cleaning, and cleaning some more.
I also put away all of my winter stuff and cleaned out all of my drawers.
I did take a break to cuddle with this little cutie and watch, or attempt to watch, the original Footloose.
I might receive some hate mail for this, but I just didn't like it as much as the new one.
I think it was kind of like if you watch a movie before you read the book;  I should've watched the original first.
Why I liked remake better:
Not a fan of Kevin Bacon
LOVE Julianne Hough
Actually, I liked most of the characters better in the remake.
Please forgive me for those die hard orginal lovers.

Kelley and I attended thirsty Thursday.
Nice excuse to partake in $1 adult beverages and enjoy the nice weather...
only it ended up being freezing cold and we left pretty early.
*freezing cold to me means 55 degrees*

{Sun bathing}
Saturday, we spent the entire day outside soaking up the rays.
I actually soaked up a little too much, but the weather was glorious and I enjoyed reading my new magazines.  {Thanks, Shelbs!!!}
I also snuck in a little bit of actual reading. 
I'm currently reading Divergent, which was recommended to those of us who were having Hunger Games withdrawels.  Haha.
So far, I love it!


This week's task was to surprise someone.
Friday at school, a teacher friend decided to run to a local favorite to grab some lunch.
Being the awesome person that she is, she took orders for several of us and went to pick it up.
One of the teachers that I work really closely with decided that she didn't need to spend the money.  She is currently saving for an upcoming trip.

I know what she always eats from there so I secretly ordered both of our lunches.
Upon arrival into the school cafeteria, I grabbed our bag from my friend and set it up on our lunch table. 
Just as she pulled out her mac and cheese to heat up for lunch, I told her what I had done.
She was happily surprised and we enjoyed such a delish lunch.  :)

It's the small things in life.
Happy Monday lovelies!

Your blogging just makes me smile. You always do the kindest things, dress the cutest, and your shopping speaks to my heart - we need to take a girls' trip soon!

Enjoyed dinner last night! Wish it hadn't been a Sunday so we could've hung out.

Hope you have a happy Monday!

I grew up with the Original Footloose and I love it still. But I think the remake is to speak to this generation. I dont think anyone is gonna be mad at you...If they get upset, their just silly. I have the same shopping style you do. You just cant help yourself, I always say "I had to have it" Your surprise was really sweet and Im sure you made her heart smile. :)I saw you through cup half full.

I just watched Footloose this weekend and I actually liked it. I thought it was a little cheesy in some parts (like when he goes crazy dancing in that warehouse - do people really do that? haha) but overall it was pretty good. I've never actually seen the original though so I might have to watch it just to see what I think.

Hope you had a fabulous weekend!

Beverly said...

Makes me smile to read how you surprised your friend with lunch! You are too sweet, and I know she was super grateful for your surprise girlie!

Keep smiling and making others smile on this fine Monday!

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said...

A REAL outfit post?!
AH so excited to see that :)

I love your green dress...I wore one that color yesterday!

So glad you're reading Divergent...I loved it, too! Can't wait for the 2nd one to come out.

AND as always, thank you for linking up with me! You're so wonderful & I know you totally made that other teacher's day...because let's be honest who wouldn't want to give up their mac n cheese for a favorite meal?!

Hope you're having a great Monday, Steph :)

I truly love reading your posts! They always make me smile! And, girl...there will never be another movie like the original Footloose! It is my ALL TIME favorite! Even though Willard was freaking hilarious in the remake. Have a great week, Sunshine!

Amanda said...

Your surprise is so much better than mine was :) I love it though! And yes, we'll be super close when I'm in Nashville, but I'm only there for a night, so it's a quick turnaround for me!

Beth said...

Amy Powell said...

Ashley said...

Love the green dress! And I rented the Footloose this past weekend and confession: didn't even finish it! I just could not get into it! No idea why, but I'm with you. I've got to start the Hunger Games to. I never got on the Twilight bandwagon, but it seems the Hunger Games is one I'm going to try!

Al said...


A) You are beautiful and so unbelievably photogenic. I am not. :)
B) I haven't seen EITHER Footloose. And I claim to be a film buff.
C) Your weekend looked PERFECT. Glad you got to soak up some sun and enjoy some Thirsty Thursday action :)

Happy Monday, love! Hope it was a good one!

Nessa Bixler said...

I haven't seen the new Footloose - but not a fan of Kevin Bacon either. He kinda creeps me out. Love your necklace!

Kristin said...

I am a new follower of your's (just found your blog through Taylor's). What a sweet gesture you did for your teacher friend. I am sure it put a smile on her face. :)

also love that you're a special education teacher. just got an extension to teach special ed in addition to my other certification! :)


Jill said...

You're gorgeous!

I loved the remake of Footloose too. Kenny is so much hotter than Kevin.

Have a great week!

Okay, where do you pick up those polishes for 1.99? I have seen them for about $9 and I still like them. At $1.99 I'd like them A LOT more. :)
