1) Valentine's Day decorations
We put up some kitchen decorations a few weeks ago and have been very lazy about hanging up the rest of the decorations! The kids and I finally got to it earlier this week and are loving all of the love! What's your favorite candy or gift to receive on Valentine's Day? Tell me in the comments below!
2) Eleventh Gorgeous videos
Leslie over at With Love From Georgia recently shared her love for her Birchbox subscription. I started to do some investigating to find out if I was interested in a makeup subscription too and started watching countless videos on YouTube of unboxing videos. I LOVE the girls from Eleventh Gorgeous! They're funny and pretty darn good at doing makeup- you can easily spend a hour watching some of their challenges! Check out their YouTube channel HERE.
3) Dad fail
Speaking of makeup, THIS story was too cute about a dad's gift for his daughter. My personal favorite is the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
4) Yasso desserts
I can't eat ice cream anymore, but I bought the Yasso Sea Salt Caramel desserts a few summers ago and really enjoyed them. At 100 calories a bar, they're a great post-dinner snack that will help you stay within your calorie count for the day. My favorite is the mint chocolate chip, but I love the cookie dough one, too! I also just tried the cookies and cream bar this week and have to say, it's pretty close to Blue Bell on a stick! Check your Target Cartwheel app because these often go on sale!
5) My other kids
This blog is mostly about my personal kids, but I do in fact have approximately 160 other kids in my care each year. I teach middle school, and I wouldn't change it for any other level! When we go to conferences, people always tell middle school teachers that there's a special place in heaven for us. We deal with the early teen/tween awkward stage on a daily basis. They're just learning sarcasm, and they're figuring out how to fit in or stand out. Some days, they're super moody, and some days, they're the sweetest little kids who still need you to be their school mom. They make you laugh, they make you cry, and some days, they make you laugh until you cry! I love what I do, but more importantly, I love my kids like they're my own.
