Step Into My Week

Happy Monday, friends! It's a bit of a tease claiming that considering this is only my second Monday of the entire school year, yep you read that right. The last time I had a five day week was the second week of school so you can go ahead and bet that I'll be dragging come the end of the week! With labor day and hurricane days I'm also not used to weekends feeling so short but I suppose it's about time to face the reality of a normal week. 

Since our last Step Into My Week I ended up getting an extended weekend which was a happy surprise. Sunday night an email was sent out that school in Greenville County was canceled for Monday and I don't think we could have been the least bit more excited. Then on Monday afternoon we were informed that schools would stay closed on Tuesday. As wonderful as those two days were I quickly came to realize that I am so much more productive when I have a set schedule and I used those two days to relax and hang out with friends and do very little more than that (oops). We (my friend group here in Greenville) have recently become obsessed with Scattergories and played at least three times this week. Despite never losing power we still defaulted back to our childhood ways of making fun without electricity even when that didn't have to be the case. We also took a little bit of time to start brainstorming how to get our apartment living room looking a bit more put together and I'm excited that we are finally making progress. We now have two more chairs, a mirror above the tv, and have cleaned up some of the communal areas which is major progress. I am so impressed by people who magically have their spaces done when they move in but considering we just started getting paychecks and have been in the space since June it seems to be about time. 


Considering we only had a three day week sadly I only have three outfits to share with y'all this week and it's a bit of a tease since we had jeans days all week. Meaning these are not the most professional outfits but being comfortable at work is never something I'll complain about.

I had a fun dinner meeting on Thursday night and left school that day feeling really put together and ready for this coming week. Friday was a busy day but I was able to leave relatively early for me without having to bring home anything to grade or put in the grade book as I was able to do that before I left. Whenever I start to feel like I have it together more work seems to come to my plate but it was nice to have that feeling two days in a row. Friday nights as I've discovered are meant for an early bed time and being lazy since I tend to be too exhausted to do anything else (although sometimes I will grocery shop on my way home on Friday). Saturday night my friends and I decided to go out to dinner so that we'd be out of the class and wouldn't have to cook. We went to one of our favorites, Rick's Deli, but not without a stop to see the dog one of my friends was dog sitting. This dog looked like a pig and was so fun to play with before we left. I definitely don't feel like I am capable of taking care of anything but myself right now (and I guess the 26 kids I teach) so it was fun to be able to play with a dog without any responsibility. 



I hope that you all had a great week and are feeling prepared as this new (long) week kicks off!

  1. I can't believe that's your living room - still in progress. I thought it was an inspiration image from the internet. It's looking so gorgeous!

  2. I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who thinks it's crazy how a person can have a whole house unpacked and perfect looking in a month or so. I moved at the beginning of August with only about 45% done. I love the rug and table though.
