Preppy Lunch Boxes

Happy Tuesday!

Thanks to everyone who showed an interest in guest blogging yesterday!  After getting off student teaching I literally ran nonstop last night, so I have not yet had time to respond to any of you, but will try to figure it all out and come up with some sort of schedule this week..I will be in touch!

My first day yesterday went fabulously!  I love my teacher as well as all of the other 1st grade teachers I spent much of the day with.  The school has a very fun, laid-back culture which makes me excited to be a part of it.

For today's post I wanted to share one of the many perks of teaching with you...packing a lunch!  Not only do you get to save money by taking your own meals, but you ALSO...get to carry a cute lunch box!

There are tons of cute options to dine in style:



I actually have this exact one, but with my initials and a diamond shaped monogram!



And last, but certainly NOT least...

When I mentioned to my mom I was thinking of getting this, she said she would get it for me as a treat for starting student teaching!
Do you pack a lunch? 

What are your favorite things to pack? I'm sure peanut butter is going to get old fast...

Have a great day!

  3. When I worked for AmeriCorps I took lunch everyday! I love the lunch boxes you found! Super Cute! I have a vera one and absolutely love it! I packed a lot of fruit, or salads (with the dressing on the side), veggies and hummus! But I had to have my occasional PB sandwich!

    Glad you are enjoying student teaching!

  5. Leftovers are always a nice treat, but I usually had peanut butter and honey or Lean Cuisine! Not very impressive, I know :).

  15. I have a really cute pink and green monogrammed lunch box that matches my teacher tote. Packing a lunch is a must for teaching, especially when you spend half of lunch helping your kids get through the line. I like salads, turkey sandwiches, hummus and pita chips, lean cuisines that cook in less than four minutes, and leftovers. I also usually throw in string cheese, a chewy bar, or a piece of fruit for my planning period or to eat while doing work after school.

    Glad your first day went well! And how sweet of your mom to treat you to the Lilly lunch box! Xoxo

  16. That's so exciting that you're student teaching! I'm starting the third year of my University's education program. I work with first graders too, it's such a cute age! When I go into the school I use a Vera Bradley lunch box but that Lilly one is super cute! I think it would look great monogrammed :)

    Can't wait to hear more about your student teaching!

  17. Right now? Fresh tomato sandwiches! A perfect school lunch. Do you live near a Publix? If so, you have to try the Boar's Head port marinaded roast beef in the deli. Grab a loaf of mountain bread and some swiss cheese. A GREAT sandwich!

  18. I love to make a Greek Salad, with Stacy's Pita Chips, after I saw it on a blog...it is basically lettuce, tomatos, yellow bell pepper, cucumber, feta and then olives if you want them...and red vinegar mixed with EVOO. Yum.

  23. These are the cutest!! I've always loved the Vera ones but that Lilly Lator Gator is just too adorable! If I had that I would totally be better about packing my lunch every day instead of buying :)
