In three more days I will have completed my first year of teaching. Yahoo!! On one hand, I'm totally ready for a break. Momma needs some quiet time. But, on the other hand, I have the teensiest bit of anxiety over my daily routine changing so drastically and so quickly...

It's freaking cold. Isn't it supposed to be May? I stopped by ACE today to look at some plants they had outside, like most humans do in spring, and my teeth were chattering.  Yesterday we had to turn the HEAT on in my apartment because my toes instantly froze solid whe...

Spring break. Ahhhhhhhhh. It couldn't have come a moment too soon and now it is slipping away faster than a politician leaving a motel room. Let's see... what did I accomplish this week. Pay bills: check. Clean apartment: check. Lay on couch in underwear while alternat...

I spent easter with my boyfriend and his extended family this year. It was such a blast! We went to mass, then to Ryan's grandparents for breakfast and an easter egg hunt. It took me wayyyyy too long to find my egg, which was just laying on the ground behind a car tire...

I'm trying to get the hang of posting often but it's harder than I thought it would be. Especially when I am like 7/8 of the way through my first year of teaching. 

 

But I have been cooking! A lot actually! Just not measuring, writing down recipes, or taking p...
