T-Shirt Dress!

When it's really hot outside, there is nothing more comfortable than a T-shirt dress. It's so perfect for hot and humid weather. Especially when your students start to bring in all of their body heat, it's nice to have something loose and comfortable on. Some of the teachers were talking about needing to have the hygiene talk again because it's starting to get hot outside and they are getting sweaty and smelly. Ha! So funny!!

I actually wore this outfit last week when it was really hot and it was perfect!!

 T-Shirt dress from Kohl's similar to this for $24.99.
Necklace from Kohl's for $19.60.
Orange Flats from Amazon for $16.99.

What is your go to outfit when it's extremely hot and sticky outside??
Enjoy your 3-day Memorial Day weekend! I'm headed to the Lake for the three day weekend!!! Yay!! I'm hoping to get some sun because I'm feeling pretty pale lately! Ha!

Bachelorette Party in a LBD!

This weekend was awesome! I'm still recovering from the water park, dancing the night away, and laughing so hard my cheeks hurt. Being together with all of my friends was long overdue. I missed them so much! It was so much fun! We stayed at an indoor water park hotel. We arrived Friday evening and went to PF Changs for dinner. Then, we came back played games, opened her presents, and had cookie cake. Saturday, we went to the indoor water park during the day. We went to a winery and gourmet pizza place for dinner. Finally, we went to Big Bang Dueling Piano Bar for the night. It was a blast! There were about 10 other bachelorette parties that were there. They sang some amazing songs and we danced the night away!

Here is what I wore Friday night:

 I just love my baby Bear!

I Love Scalloped Anything!

Anything piece of clothing that I see with a scalloped edge, I have to buy. I just bought this shirt at TJ Maxx about two months ago and I had to get it in both colors that they had. I love it so much! It's so classy.
I love having things to look forward to! This weekend I'm going to my friend's bachelorette party. I can't wait to be reunited with some of my best friends and spend the weekend together. I will give you all a recap next week of the weekend. Saturday all of the girls are wearing our little black dresses and the bride-to-be is wearing a white and sparkly dress! I can't wait!!! Do you like having things to look forward to?

My favorite time of year is when the trees bloom and they are white. The trees line the sides of our street and it is just breathtaking driving through it. I love the spring time! I just couldn't crop the beautiful tree out of my picture. I also couldn't crop out the little neighbor boys who live behind us. Ha!

Hello Summer Weather!

The weather is feeling more like summer weather. I'm so excited! I still can't believe the school year is almost over. I just had my students make their summer bucket lists. The big thing that most of my students want to do this summer is go to Cedar Point (amusement park in Ohio)! They are getting very excited for school to be out! Our last day of school is May 30th. The last week of school is filled with fun activities, such as field trips and field days. 
This past Friday, our school had it's annual Spring Fling! It was raining outside, so it was inside with face painting, snow cones, balloon animals, etc. I worked at the Cake Walk game. It's kind of like musical chairs except they walk around this circle of numbers and when I stop the music I pull a number and whoever is standing on that number, they get to pick a baked good from the table. It was so hard not to eat anything on that table. If you know me you know I have a major sweet tooth. Good thing I had a cookie dough blizzard from Dairy Queen before I came to the Spring Fling. Ha! :) The students had a blast!

Blue button down from Goodwill similar to this for $22.80.
Yellow Cardigan from Poshmark (Old Navy) similar to this for $22.80.
Skinny Jeans from Forever 21 similar to these for $7.80.

Enjoy the warm weather, if you have it too!

S.L.A.N.T. Box Reveal!

Today I'm going to talk about this awesome thing called a SLANT Box that I participated in this past moth for the first time. I loved it so much that I'm doing it again this month. It's about sending love across the nation to teachers and you don't have to be a blogger to sign up! You can read all about it and sign up if you want over at Lessons With Coffee blog.


The SLANT Box Exchange


The theme was pick your favorite book and get things that go with the theme of the book. I got to know to lovely ladies over the month of April. I was able to give Martha a box of goodies over at 2 Smart Wenches and if you'd like to see what I gave her check out her SLANT Box Reveal. She has totally inspired me to have a Fairy Garden someday! I loved getting to know her. I also got to know a beautiful lady who loves the TV show, Scandal as much as I do!! I received the sweetest most thoughtful box from Lindsay over at Flipping Over Fourth Grade.


She could not have gotten me a more perfect book! I used to dress up in my mom's high heels and her old bridesmaids dresses. I've always loved being fancy! :)
She knew my classroom was zebra and pink themed, so she got me those perfect zebra pens and the pink sunglasses Post-it I fell in love with!
The chocolates are already gone...oops! They were so so so good! I had never had them before and now I'm obsessed.
Yummy smelling wax melts for my new home to smell good.

Lindsay was so very thoughtful and I feel like she knew me so well from everything she gave me. Thank you again and again a million times over!!

S.L.A.N.T. Box is amazing and I can't wait to do it again this month! The theme is everything is personalized. Anything your partner likes, you get it! :)

I've Been Busy Moving

I've been very busy lately getting settled in my new home. A few weeks ago I moved out of my parents' house...I'm officially a big girl! Ha! I had to move out sooner or later and I didn't want to be like that movie "Failure to Launch"! My mom was pretty emotional, but I live ten minutes away and I still see her at least three or four times a week! We are best friends! When Colin works nights it's nice to go have dinner with my parents, so I don't have to eat alone. We are still getting everything settled, but it's slowly becoming a home. I love it! The closet is my favorite room...it's HUGE! :)

This post is a sneak peek of my new home....


 Entryway

So that's what we have so far! There are a few spaces and a room that isn't finished yet. I love decorating my new home!!! I can't wait for it to be completely finished!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!
