A Little Bit of Life {No. 5}

Hey y'all!

I'm back with you on a Tuesday to let you know what's been going on in my busy life lately :)

While my classmates are taking two sweet weeks off before graduation (this Friday!), I've still been chugging along, teaching my kids all about North America in my Geography class.
I'm not complaining though, I'm so thankful for where I'm's funny how we usually end up right where we're supposed to be :)

Week before last I went to the College of Education on my campus for what was the last time and I got a little emotional.
I've spent many hours in that building, many late nights, long classes, and laughs with best friends were had there.

We also had a Reverse Career Fair last week where the students set up tables and principals, vice principals, superintendents,  etc. walk around and talk to you and get your resumes.

I had so much fun hanging out with my classmates, some of which might be the last time we get together, and letting people know why I love teaching and education (& history!)
Plus, I got to wear Lilly-so it was a good day ;)

I made this graphic for my poster because I found one on Pinterest (the one on the left in the picture) but I wanted a matching set.
I loved the silhouette idea and the quote is perfect for history!
Chris and I had a "date night" at the pond at my Dad's on Saturday night.
We went down and just sat and relaxed, tossed a couple of lines in the water, and I silently kept wishing I had a darn puppy.
This is perfect puppy weather, am I right?

Luckily, I do have this guy-my borrowed dog.
He's actually our neighbors, but he appears in our yard randomly so we call him Ghost and love on him while he's around.

On Sunday, I was feeling a little mod, so I wore this funky little dress and my OTBT's (those will be on repeat all spring and summer, sorry not even sorry.)

On Sunday afternoon, we pulled out the Old Town canoe I bought Chris for Christmas and took her for a spin at my dad's pond.
Chris didn't think canoeing in a pond would be fun, but we ended up having a blast.
The water was super clear so we were able to see lots of fish and a couple of turtles.
Plus, it's an awesome arm workout!

Monday we didn't have school (which is why this post is going up on Tuesday!)
I spent the afternoon in Birmingham doing a little shopping and eating lunch with my oldest sister!
I had to stop in Leeds, which is where our Bass Pro Shop (& also an outlet mall) is and Auntie Ann's lemonade called my name.

Basically, I have been incredibly busy and loving every single minute of it.

I graduate this Friday and will hopefully be having graduation pictures done soon-I can't wait to share them with you!

Until next time. . .
