Ready for the week

Christmas was great. It was fun, relaxing, and full of family and friends. It was also a whirlwind; a non-stop go go go from Friday night to Monday morning but that’s how we like it best. Now that the chaos of Christmas is over, I am so ready for the rest of my break. Coffee, cozy socks, and maybe a little clean up here and there are all on my to-do list. Bring on the rest of the week!

Putting together Christmas

Every year I look forward to these 5 whole days of food, family, and free time. My husband and I took full advantage of our mini vacation getting together with family and preparing our place for the holidays. We even got our Christmas cards taken care of! It was a wonderful way to celebrate the beginning of the holidays and finish some overdue projects too!

While Andrew put up the tree…

I worked on some Christmas decorations. My favorite: The book tree. Tutorial to come!

Ella didn’t do too much but sit and look cute-and that was okay with us!


Hope you all had a wonderful long weekend as well!

After a year of teaching, I’m a teacher!

Now that I have finally seen my classroom and what needs to be done, I can officially start planning my year. Right after a few new projects to get my room ready that is. :)

I saw this idea on Pinterest (big surprise) and so wanted one for the front of my own desk! What I thought would be a quick  project was actually pretty time consuming, but so super easy and cheap to do!
