I am Still Here

So I realized that I haven't blogged in almost 6 months.
I actually really love to blog. I would still blog if no one read it.

I simply didn't blog because my life got busier and I didn't want to force badly written entries.
So what did I do with my time?

In August, I was promoted. Still working for the same school, I switched locations and now teach 3 (and 4) year olds. My job is incredibly challenging and rewarding at the same time. The only complaint I have is the money. However, I love going to work.

I plan to post some of my various crafts at some point.

In September, I spent lovely weather weekends outside with baby M. We did things like going Blackberry Picking. M could really make quite the farmer if he wants to be one.

In October, Baby M was a Burrito for Halloween and I made his costume. My preschoolers decorated fall trees, pumpkins and made cookies.

In November, I read my kids Pete the Cat's "White Shoes" over and over again. Goodness, No!

Baby M turned 9 months. He's into everything. Meanwhile, I'm trying to teach my preschoolers their Christmas Pageant songs...

Hide it under a bushel? NO!
I'm gonna let it shine!
Let it Shine, Let it Shine, Let it Shine.

I also took down my artist website. This is something that I had debated for a long time. My time at Graduate School is something I would like to forget.

So that's a very brief look into what's been going on in my life...

I will try to blog more. I am definitely miss the world of Bloggin'.

Grateful Heart

I am incredibly grateful for moments like this...
My ninety-one year old Grandfather with my 24 week old son.
Here they are sharing a laugh over baby M's Thomas the train.
I'm blessed to have them both in my life and I learn so much for each one of them.

My grandfather inspires me to make art and go after everything I dreamed of.
He never let me say that I can't do something.
He encourages me to try hard at everything I do.

Baby M looks up at me and I feel like I want to give him the world.
I plan to give him all that I can and then some.

My aim is to keep them... proud. happy. smiling.

I am filled with a #gratefulheart when I think about these two.

Things My Husbands Says (No.3)

Being a preschool teacher, I come home talking about things that include bathroom stories.
One of those conversations recently lead to this gem my husband said on Potty training...

Husband: "When we train M to go potty in the toilet, we will use cheerios."
Me: "Like treats for my dogs?!?!"
Husband: "No, we'll throw them in the toilet and pretend they are aliens for him to shoot down."
Me: "Where did you even get that idea from?"
Husband: "I just came up with it."
Me: "...and then we can give him M&Ms like my Mom did with my brother."

It's a little early for potty training, but at least we have some ideas. ;)

Another Grateful Monday I don't do this, but this perfectly describes my love for food.

It's Monday, which means it's time for me to write about a few things that I'm currently grateful for.


My son's recent high pitched giggling noise.
It makes me laugh which makes him giggle even more. Cheesy motherhood moment.


My husband's goofy one liners.
He's running around the house referring to Baby M as his Gucci and his line "Got a long shift at work but I'll make it through my posting lots of selfies. YOLO." Cracked me up completely.


Martha Stewart's line of glues.
A girl is becoming addicted. Decoupage glue? Tiny glue pens? This white glue with a top that screws on... I need it all.


Wendy's Chocolate Junior Frosty.
A small bit of frozen heaven enjoyed during my lunch break today.


The Whisper App.
I enjoy reading other secrets and skimming through the posts when insomnia strikes.


Sleep, sweet sweet sweet Sleep. Why did I fight naps so much as a kid?

What are you Grateful for today?

I am Back!

Hey ladies and gents, I'm back to my regular returned schedule of blogging. FINALLY.
I now am back to my scheduled free time now that my certification courses for work are finished.

Some Saturday tunes currently being played in my living room...

Iggy Azalea - Fancy (Explicit) ft. Charli XCX

Notorious B.I.G.- Juicy

Ingrid Michaelson - Girls Chase Boys

The Bouncing Souls - Lean on Sheena

Charli XCX - Boom Clap

Katy Perry ft. Juicy J - Dark House

Anberlin - Godspeed

I'm off to hang out with Baby M and go to a work thing later...

What's on your Saturday Playlist?

It's the Little Friday Link up!

Hey ladies and gents,

I promise I'll be back to regularly blogging sometime soon.

I'm just filled with distractions like:
-Baby M talking away making cooing sounds for hours at a time (It's really cute, I promise).
-Falling Asleep during Orange is the New Black episodes because I'm so exhausted yet I waited months for this.
-Pondering over being docked three points off my essay in my Child Development class.
-Hacking up all kinds of fun stuff, thanks allergy season!
-Debating which days I should take off of work and if I did, if I would even leave the house.
-Should I or should I not cut all my hair off.
-I have a preschool song stuck in my head, "Days of the Week, Days of the week....there is Sunday and Monday and..." It probably doesn't help that my husband sings "What's the weather like?" every morning.

But here's the good news... I'm co-hosting the little Friday link up over on one of my favorite blogs...
