This is my last Friday post before I go back to work- where did the summer go?!? This has been such a great time off of work, but I am ready to get back to a regular routine and to start my 2nd year of teaching! I can’t believe this is my 2nd year as a teacher- when did I get responsible enough for the education of young people? I’m still a young person!
Anyway, I am linking up with Christina at North Carolina Charm, one of my favorite blogs and one of my favorite link-ups! Here are my 5 favorite things this week.
1) Monster Cookies
My mouth has been watering at the sight of these cookies on pinterest all week, so tonight I made them. Nat is at a football scrimmage, which left me home alone, so I have been baking and watching my new obsession “Nashville.”
These are really yummy and really easy to make. They are filled with a little bit of everything- chocolate chips, oatmeal, peanut butter, m&m’s, peanut butter chips- what more could you want! I got the recipe via Mrs. Schwartz’s kitchen
2. Monogrammed stadium seat
Football season is upon me- Nat is at their first scrimmage of the season (it was 1.5 hours away- too far for this lady to drive). I am in the market to find a stadium seat to bring to games with me. I can only sit on concrete seats or bleachers for so long.
I’ve found a few on Etsy, but I would really like a chair with a back…but I guess if I can’t find a cute one I can deal with just a cushion.
3. My family (always on my favorite list)
My brother is getting married in 2 weeks and 1 day. We were able to spend time together on Sunday when we all visited my parents for my dad’s birthday. I am so proud of my brother for all of his hard work and I am so thankful for his friendship. I adore his soon to be wife and I look forward to them making it official in a couple of weeks!
4. My new window table.
I got this table for my birthday and I am still obsessed with it. My sister and her husband are seriously gifted in crafts and craftsmanship. I have eyed this table since the first time my sister made one. I finally had a place to put it!
(Don’t mind the little dog butt in the picture. Avery wouldn’t move; she had a rough day at the vet.)
Check out my sister’s Etsy site- she makes great stuff and will get it to you quickly! Hannah’s Craft Nest
5. Beginning of the school year/end of summer hair cut!
I have a problem- I regularly have long hair in the summer and I am always miserable. My hair is not made for hot weather. I feel like it is a plant and thrives on the sunshine. By the end of July I am always dying for a hair cut to get the pound of hair off of my neck. The issue is that by October I miss my long hair because it starts to get cold outside.
Tomorrow is the day; my regularly scheduled end of the summer hair cut. I am thinking of getting a medium length cut. I am not ready to lose all of my length nor am I willing to give up any chance of a ponytail. My inspiration comes from my girl Reese Witherspoon. Seriously, has she ever had bad hair? I have serious envy of her hair and clothes…so hopefully this hair cut works out tomorrow!
