Finally Friday!


On this Friday I am confessing about all things classroom, working, and dinner! What are you confessing this week? 


I confess that I am really excited to start school next week. I am also excited that my sweet Bennett will be starting as well. We had meet the teacher last night, so he got to meet his teacher and the 4 little ones in his class.  As for me, I am pretty sure that Meet the Teacher only gets easier every year. I wasn't stressed when pots and pans were thrown about, or when I couldn't talk to everyone at once. 
I confess that I would absolutely love an embroidery machine. I have so much stuff that I want to monogram, or at least try to monogram. ;) I will have to look for one on one of the swap shops, or even new--depending on which brand I go with. 


Portillos Copy Cat Salad
I confess I don't even remember really making dinner this week.--BAD. Not a good way to start the school year. I did however find a great "salad" recipe from Everyday Happiness, that I will just have to try this weekend. It sounds delicious. I'll probably hold the lettuce though and add when we eat, as I am sure it will last us a couple days. 

This Dress
I confess I actually went shopping on Monday night. I always love a new dress for Meet the Teacher night. Something fresh is always nice to have when you meet the kiddos. 
I confess I really need some ideas for lunches for myself. I prefer cold lunches so I don't have to heat them up in the microwave. Maybe I will be adventurous and try to blog more this week with some lunch ideas that I find. 

What are you confessing?

Menu Plan Monday

M- BBQ Chicken Pizza T- Chicken Guacamole Taquitos W- Leftovers 
R-  Honey Garlic Chicken Sat/Sun- Chicken in Lemon Butter Sauce

Last week was so busy. I came down with Bronchitis and Bennett was getting over an ear infection. My husband was also out of town a lot and at the end of the day blogging was put to the back burner. This week though, should be a little semi normal. I start back at work on Wednesday for preplanning. I'm excited to get a schedule together, and start the school year. The Lemon Butter Chicken that is planned for Saturday/Sunday is delicious. I am definitely making this one again! 

What are you making this week?

Finally Friday!


I'm kind of in disbelief that it is August already! I love fall, and this season can't come fast enough. Next week I start unofficially at my new job and I am so excited to out and teaching again, for the perfect amount of time in a day. Now it's time to confess to you all...so here we go!


I confess that I can't believe my little one turns one next Friday? Say what?! I remember this time last year I was in the hospital technically in labor, but noting was happening and I didn't want an epidural or pitocin so they sent me home. They told me I would probably have within the week. Well a week from that day my water broke. It was the most torturous week, I was miserable and sick and tired. In the end though, I got my baby. 

I confess this birthday party that is next week for our boy, I'm kinda not prepared. I have an idea of what's going on, but that cake that I should have ordered isn't ordered yet. Oh boy, here we go. We'll get it done, my plans always seem to come together even if its the last 5 minutes before it happens. ;) 


I confess I really would like to go shopping. Like I said earlier I love fall, and fall clothes and warm colors. One thing I want since El Nino will be bad this year...Hunter Boots. Oh yes, I will be getting some this year. These poppy clips are adorable and would look darling on them. 

I confess I need to find a new school planner. I know their is Erin Condren, but spending that kind of money on a school planner kind of makes my head hurt. I downloaded and got one bound the previous year from TPT, but not sure I have the time to do that this year. Any that I can buy and have shipped this week would be lovely. 

I confess that in a few months we will be going to DC just the two of us. I'm super excited since I have never been before. We chose the Washington Plaza Hotel after seeing it on the Travel Channel, I needed to stay there. Any must see places?
