Because. Friday

Happy Friday! 

This week was the first week back to school for our county and my first week back in the classroom! 
Between my co teacher and I, we have 16 littles. It was a such a great first week! We definitely have two-three littles that will totally test us and try to push us but the rest are dolls! The rest of the staff is also so helpful and welcoming which is awesome. Anyways, lets get on with the Friday festivities! 

1. Last weekend, J and I had a little date night including Tim McGraw and the casino! It has been a while since we have actually gone out and done something more than just a quick dinner so it was really nice. We scored pretty decent concert tickets off groupon the week before! After the concert, we went to the casino and J played on the blackjack tables. He ended up leaving with $100 more than he started with so, that was a plus. 
2. My new home away from home-aka, my classroom! I. am. in. love! 

This school is quite state of the art in terms of being up to date technology wise. They also spare no cost making sure all of the teachers have everything they need which is refreshing after the previous schools I have worked at. 

3. So, I was trying to be so good and only treat myself to coffee once a week (Friday) on my way to work but I have been the Queen of the insomnia/waking up struggle bus. I fall asleep for like an hour or so then for some reason my body wakes me up. I then have trouble falling back to sleep until about and hour- hour and a half before I am suppose to be up... 
so, I have stopped every morning this week for a coffee. #sorrynotsorry

4. The forecast around this area this weekend is looking...well, 
yay for hurricane season...


 Don't Miss Out! 

Have a fabulous and safe weekend!


  1. LOVE the watercolor image in this post! I totally agree, I try to only allow myself to get Starbucks 1-2 times a week but this week it was all 5 working days. #ops haha

  2. Starbucks can seriously steal all your moneys! :P

  3. I have been really good about not drinking coffee in the morning and only getting it on Fridays the past week. I have been trying really hard to stay on a good diet until my dress fitting NEXT WEEK ahh. If the dress fits I don't need to be so strict if it doesnt...well there goes my coffee at all until Nov!

  4. My hubby and I saw Tim a few years ago - such a good concert!!!

  5. Love Tim McGraw! I've seen him before and he puts on a great show!

  6. Don't be sorry about Starbucks. Never be sorry. And so glad your start to the school year has been great!!! That classroom looks so nice too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  7. I haven't been to starbucks in a while since they stop selling S'more Frap. lol But fall/winter is around the corner and that's where I spend my money. Peppermint Mocha. love it.

    I feel your pain about insomnia. I have that at least 3x a month. I tend to cry because of it. I'm thinking of seeing my doctor about it.

  8. Just think, the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks! What a wonderful classroom!

    Happy Friday <3

  11. Your classroom looks so cute! Good work :) I'm a teacher too so I know how much effort into all that! And how crazy is that weather pic? Hope you're surviving hurricane season!

  12. I totally feel you on the struggle bus! I have been riding it so hardcore all week, but I don't drink coffee and caffeine doesn't do anything for me! Have a great weekend :)!

  16. I still haven't seen Tim McGraw and he was one of my first favorite singers back when I was just 9 or 10! & Starbucks can take all of my money too if I'm not too careful!
