It's Friday! Today is the end of our second to last marking period, which means the true counting down can begin (only 24 more days of school... just sayin')! Schools are open for a half day so teachers can clean and grade. I busted my butt earlier this week in hopes of getting my grades finished early (which I did) so I could use this time to CLEAN! Man, my work space is a mess! It's hard not having a classroom this year--really hard. I've learned a lot about what you really need to teach, though. It's exciting thinking about how I'll decorate a classroom as soon as I have one. I've been ordering posters and writing down ideas like crazy. I ordered a few posters from Advice to Sink in Slowly that I posted about a few weeks ago--they finally arrived and they are adorable!
I'm looking forward to this weekend because I don't have much going on and I'm hoping that means a hike in the woods, a lot of yummy food and drinks, and some good quality time with that husband of mine. Of course, I'm also thinking about taking my camera out and doing some fun things with it, too.
I'm not going to lie, my new LG Spectrum phone has a 8mp camera and I'm sort of in love with it. When I'm dealing with in-the-moment photography, it's definitely my go-to and has eased a lot of shoulder pain from carrying my dSLR everywhere. I know everyone does these, but I sort of love looking/reading posts like this, so I wanted to share snapshots of my life through the last few weeks, too!
I've been spending a lot of time in the car with Cory, reading and traveling to Virginia for various reasons (a random rainy Sunday trip to Sonic for a special treat or a friend's wedding on a sunny weekend). I've also been taking the time to make sure dinner is always something yummy. Maybe it's breakfast for dinner, a typical dinner meal, or take-out Greek. Either way, I just want it to be yummy since it's usually the last thing I eat every day.
There's really no surprise that Instagram has quickly become my favorite app on my new phone. It's pretty and refreshing to see what other people share from their lives--so much inspiration and creativity--I really love it!
