Happy Friday friends! This week was jam-packed and flew by! I hope everyone had a great Labor Day and you were able to have some R & R. πŸ™‚

One.It’s about time! I updated my about me page with a lot of questions that people have been asking over time about this space and life in general!

Two.After getting my hair highlighted this week, my hairdresser used Redken Align Smoothing Lotion Β in my hair and it felt ah-mazing! She said it’s one of her favorite products to use, and I can see why it would be. πŸ™‚ I also seriously love thisΒ curling iron!

Three.

This quote has resonated a lot with me lately. I have been thinking about it when I’m doing my devotions in the morning, at work, and at home. There is so much truth in it that I thought I’d share! Also, leave it to Oprah. πŸ˜‰

Four.My Banana Bread to bake as the temps keep lowering!

Five.

THIS! I may have teared up. I love, love, love this show!

Grab some coffee, watch this trailer, and enjoy your weekend friends! πŸ™‚

We had a date night last night, finished the second week of school, and have a long weekend! πŸ™‚ Please and thank you! πŸ™‚

One.In my What’s Up Wednesday post, I talked about my newfound obsession with podcasts. What are some of your favorite podcasts?! I spend a lot of time in the car, just based on my commute…so I’m all ears! πŸ™‚

Two.I also talked about one of my favorite restaurants in this post. If you are close to (or want to take a little vacay) to Cape May, New Jersey, do yourself a favor and visit the Blue Pig! It’s a farm to table restaurant and their food is SO tasty!

Three.Urban Southern reached out to me about writing an article for their blog from a teacher’s perspective. I was so honored and loved this idea. I said yes in a heartbeat because I love their company for not only their bags, but what they stand for. You can check out the article, here! They are wonderful women that are building a great community. πŸ™‚

It’s a FOUR day weekend! Wooohooo!

Five.Date nights are one of my favorite things. I love being able to put all work, housework, etc. aside and just enjoy time spent together. Whenever Eric and I go on a date though, we always end up going to a restaurant. I really do love trying new restaurants and even going back to some of our favorites. However, when I try to think of something else other than dinner for a date night, I get stumped. I know there are a million Pinterest ideas out there but I wanted to ask you what some of your favorite date night ideas are! πŸ™‚

Happy Labor Day Weekend! πŸ™‚

Happy Friday everyone!

One.

The first week of school is in the books and let me tell you…God completely blessed this entire week! It was SO MUCH FUN! I loved getting to know the kids, the new setup of my room, and I even kind of liked being back in a routine. πŸ™‚ That was definitely a favorite of my week!

Two.Last weekend, we had a blast celebrating one of my closest friends, Ashley getting married! Everything from the weather to the flowers and everything in between was stunning! She gave usΒ this necklace as one of the bridesmaids gifts to wear in the wedding. So cute, right?! But one of the best parts about it was I can wear it outside of the wedding too! I love when that happens! πŸ™‚ I’m eyeing these up too…

Also, it was SO fun to be reunited with some of my study abroad (Recap: One, two, three, and four) friends. It felt like no time had passed since I saw them and I loved every second of it! πŸ™‚

Three.You all know I love Lily and Val. (Here and here!) She is just the sweetest! Another gift Ashley gave us were these adorable little zipped pouch from her!

Four.My new backpack is a favorite! I take it to school everyday and love it! Use code: spring15 for 15% off any order friends! xo

Five.This makes my mouth water just thinking about it! I love, love, love, LOVE my pumpkin bread recipe! (Pssttt..It’s healthy too!)

Six.

This week was BUSY! Busy, busy, busy! Between errands, school prep, and trying to set my alarm much earlier…I cannot believe it is the last full week of summer!

BUT, it’s Friday and we have a date night planned and a fun weekend ahead! All is well in life. πŸ™‚

One.

On Tuesday we had family friends over who we don’t see the often. We caught up, ate pizza, and played some games. Who remembers the game Taboo?! I have not played it in FOREVER and we all were dying laughing! So much fun! πŸ™‚

Two.

Eric is on our church softball team (which I think I mentioned before?!) and they have made it to the championship this year! It is such a fun group of people and I loved watching their final games this week! πŸ™‚

Three.

I debated about mentioning this but I couldn’t help it. A few months ago I bought this USB diffuser to use in the car, since I have a long commute during the school year. In my mind, I mainly thought that is where I would use it. Until..I brought it to school with me this week. I put it in my computer as I was doing work and loved the scent. πŸ™‚ I plugged away on my laptop as it diffused right there and I was in love! Also, aren’t the colors so cute? πŸ˜‰

Four.We added one of my favorite salsas on some tacos this week! Yum!

Five.I think we have watched one, if not two, episodes every night this week! Such a fun show! The accents get me every time!

Happy Friday! xoxo
