I have been loving embroidered everything recently. I saw this shirt and as soon as I tried it on I knew I had to have it! I actually wore this outfit on my birthday because it was going to be 70 degrees. It was the warmest day it had been in a long time. March is always an unpredictable weather month in Ohio. I've had snow days on my birthday and I've been in shorts and sandals on my birthday. I was lucky to get the warmer weather on my birthday this year. I took my students out for an extra recess that day. :)

Beaded Embroidered Top from TJ Maxx similar to this for $24.90.
Blue Pants from TJ Maxx similar to these for $36.94.
Brown Flats from Payless similar to these for $14.25.
Coral Pendant Necklace from Gabe's similar to this for $8.99.

Last week, school was super busy with conferences, observations, grade cards, testing, etc. I ended up having very painful tension in my neck and back. I had to leave school one day because it was hurting so badly. I went to urgent care and they gave me medicine that helped a lot. I think all of the stress brought it on. Well, it's finally going away now that I'm relaxing on Spring Break. I'm so thankful!!

Now I'm off to get a massage, which will help my tension even more. I need this total relaxation after such a busy and stressful week. Do you get stressed often? How do you overcome it? 

Have a great day!!!!

Last week was my birthday and St. Patrick's Day! We had so much fun in the classroom! The sneaky leprechaun visited our classroom and left a mess! We even had a green treat party!

A fun St. Patrick's Day craft! "If I had a pot of gold I would..."

My favorite one that one of my students wrote was "If I had a pot of gold I would buy my mom groceries." It was so sweet! Groceries are pretty expensive unless you are a coupon queen! I wish I was one, but it looks pretty time consuming and difficult.  :)
