Happy Hump Day readers!

A teacher workday on Monday and a snow day yesterday is making for a short week at school!

During my snow day yesterday, I had a little bit of time to catch up on some blogs and while reading MCW's "Currently" post, I decided I would steal her idea!

I technically wrote this post last night, so "Currently" may not be completely accurate, but just go with it!

Eating...chocolate chips. I set out to do a 20 day sugar cleanse starting January 10th and failed! I did go a whole week with no sugar or alcohol, though. Since then my cravings have been way lower, so I am counting the modified (ha) 7 day sugar cleanse as a success!

Wearing...this pajama shirt (currently on sale for more than 50% off)! My cousin Callee got it for me for Christmas and I am completely in love with it!

Needing...lotion! I have noticed in the last week or so that my skin has gotten so dry from the winter temperatures! I need to do a better job of using lotion daily! Any good body lotion recommendations for me? I really like Aveeno Baby lotion, but am open to trying something new!

Wanting...this cape, still, and a decent snow storm! Last winter we got snow several times, but never really enough to play in and enjoy! This year we've gotten even less so far and I'd really like just one snow storm that would bring several inches of fluffy white snow!

Hearing...the laundry buzzer! In the last few days I have done probably close to 10 loads of laundry and now am dreading having to put it all away!

Watching...Hart of Dixie on Netflix! I watched this show when it first came out and enjoyed it, but lost track over time. Now I am loving getting caught back up! Bryce has had work dinners the last few nights, so it has been the perfect show to watch all by myself.

Thinking...a lot about other career options. Have any of my readers made a career switch from teaching to something different? I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology in addition to my Masters of Teaching so I am hoping that opens up options for me, if I do decide to make a career change. Any tips for me? I will have to do a teaching update post soon...

Laughing...over the state of my nails. I got them done on New Year's Eve and they look so terrible it is embarrassing! I wish it were easier to remove gel at home! Luckily I am getting them done on Thursday evening.

Thankful...for Bryce. I have been so, so thankful for him lately! 2015 has brought nothing but happiness (dare I say, bliss!?) for us so far and I am so proud of the relationship we have worked so hard to build.

What are you currently up to?

Have a great day!


  1. I love Hart of Dixie, I always watch it when my husband is working late. Such a great girlie show, I love her style

  2. Love this! I hate putting laundry away too! So happy for you and Bryce...exciting!!!

  3. I'm totally loving hart of Dixie too! I've heard rumors that this is the last season so I'm trying to soak it in.

    I did make a change from teaching to sales, and now I sell educational curriculum. I love it because I'm still in the educational industry, helping children get a better education, but my schedule is much more flexible, I work from home and travel a little bit, and make quite a bit more money.....it's not a bad gig...and they loved that' I had a background in eductation!

  4. I used to watch Hart of Dixie too and love hearing that it's available on Netflix! Please come steal some of our snow - it's nice and fluffy and we have more than enough to share! Glad to hear things with you and Bryce are going so well!! As for a career change, you can always go into fundraising, especially at a school; no summer breaks but other perks.

  5. Lotion suggestion--Queen Helene Cocoa Butter Lotion. I get mine at Walmart for less than $2. It's the only thing that has ever worked year round on my chronically dry skin. I especially love it in the summer because it's not thick like normal lotions (which can be a problem when you're a sweat-er like me!).

  6. I tried to do a sugar cleanse for the month of January and only made it 17 days :) I still consider that a success though. Hart of Dixie is one of my absolute favorites! So glad to hear things are going so well with you and Bryce :)

  7. I think we should just steal every other post from each other :)
    I use Aveeno body lotion, I love it and have gotten comment that my skin is soft.
    As you know I switched from teaching to "corporate" America, feel free to email me!
    Yayee for B&A.

  8. I LOVE Hart of Dixie!!! Such a fun show, and it really is the perfect girly show to watch when you are home alone. Props to you for that sugar cleanse, it's 7 more days than I've ever gone! Maybe I will have to try that out.. but I am not sure I could ever give up my Milanos!

  9. I switched from teaching to admin support in higher ed. I made the change when my husband and I moved, because I really didn't think I could handle inner-city school. I think that the "advantage" of teaching is that you don't exactly get spoiled by the pay or work hours. Happy that you and Bryce are in such a good place. :)

  10. You have such an outgoing, positive personality, you could do anything! I switched from corporate to teaching French in a suburban, private school so I went the opposite direction! I think teaching in a different capacity would be nice, such as a part time reading specialist, or a suburban preschool. I could totally picture you as a pharmaceutical sales rep, I don't know why, but seems like it would fit your personality!

  11. I love Hart of Dixie too :) Teaching is so tough. I moved into administration, but am still in K-12. Good luck - I'll be interested to see where you end up!
