Yesterday was another busy day. The second I walked into school, I was told we were short on subs, so I went to cover an eighth grade class. I am starting to get to know the students a little bit better, so it was fun to be back in the classroom. I covered the first and second period classes, then a sub showed up. I ate breakfast and lunch at school in-between working on various things. My sweet tooth kicked in as soon as I finished breakfast, so I had some dark chocolate covered pretzels. I don’t have a picture of them because I inhaled them. Whoops.


I am in desperate need of a haircut. Well, at least a trim. I made an appointment for the week after Thanksgiving. I am glad my hair is finally longer after chopping it off last year (HERE), but it definitely needs a little bit of love.


This graphic cracked me up. Sometimes I get so frustrated with my phone’s auto corrections because they seem to make zero sense. Thinking about it this way helps. ; )


I went to my Grandma’s after school for a little bit. It was just my Mom, my Grandma, and me. My Grandma slept the whole time. I think she had a better day yesterday in that she wasn’t feeling so miserable and hurting, but it’s just awful watching her stuck in that bed all day. I feel kind of drained this week. Not that I am complaining, I have absolutely nothing to complain about compared to what my sweet Grandma is going through. A bunch of my family will be here this weekend, so it will be nice to see them. I will go back over to my Grandma’s sometime today. When I got home last night, I just didn’t feel like doing anything, so Jake picked up dinner for us from The Pitch. We shared wings and a burger and fries. It hit the spot.


Brandi, the photographer who captured our engagement pictures, our wedding, and basically anything else special that has happened in our lives, did a super fun seasonal mini-shoot last weekend. She owns BG Studios Photography and we HIGHLY recommend her. Obviously I am a huge fan of pictures. I take hundreds every week. So, when we want a special occasion documented, you know, without my billion seflies ; ), we want the best! Brandi is always the first person we call.

I left these pictures bigger, so you could really see them. Jake and I spend a lot of time laughing at each other and Brandi always does such an incredible job capturing our true personalities. I love it.

Brandi is offering another one of these fun holiday shoots on December 8th at Great Escape Beerworks. Find her online to book! These spots go fast, so book quickly! HERE is her Facebook page.


I will spend time with my family today after school, then I have a long run Saturday morning. Other than that, I’m not making any plans. I want to be able to spend time with my family. I hope everyone has a relaxing weekend and is able to recharge from the week.

Happy Friday, friends!
