Monday Randoms

Happy Monday, friends! I don't think I've ever gone so long without writing a post. Life has been insanely busy lately so the idea of picking up my personal computer when I get home from work has just not sounded appealing at all. The first two weeks of school are now behind us and we're all starting to get adjusted to our routine. I am enjoying my class this year and loving my new school. The only thing I'm not loving is that I've had so many afternoon meetings that I feel like I haven't seen my husband in ages.

Last weekend we headed to Clemson for the Clemson/UGA game. This was lots of fun spending time with some friends we hadn't seen in a while.
We stayed in Greenville and had brunch at Blue Ridge Brewery with some old friends and even took a quick drive by Corey's old house and my old townhome, which of course made me feel totally nostalgic. My only regret with the weekend was when I stopped in a boutique downtown and fell in love with this perfectly "Elizabeth" tunic. We were running late to meet friends so I knew I would have to come back to try it on after. And then I totally forgot. If you live in the Greenville area and would like to pick it up and ship it to me, you will be my new best friend.

Having the long weekend made me feel a lot better after a crazy first full week. Then, I woke up on Tuesday morning to head to work and my car wouldn't start. If you're a teacher you know this is a moment of shear panic. Not only was I worried about what was wrong with it but I was worried about who would greet my 5th graders at the door. Luckily, my husband came to the rescue and lent me his car for the day until I had time to call AAA that evening. 

In other news, the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte has really made my life lately. Especially as it is necessary for me to drink abut 15 cups of coffee during the work week to make it through the beginning of the year chaos. 

I think this little guy has almost forgotten who I am. When I'm at home he won't leave my side. He even follows me into the bathroom. I think he's afraid every time I leave the room I'll disappear for 12 hours. Which makes sense since that happens five days every week. We've been trying to give him extra snuggles and take him on lots of long walks. 

You know the expression, "when it rains, it pours?" I feel like its been pouring lately a lot in terms of customer service issues - problems with our apartment, problems getting Best Buy's Geek Squad to fix our brand new dryer, problems with my car, and of course the icing on the cake was when my third Jack Rogers broke the other day!  I'm feeling the need for a vacation. Or at least a spa weekend. 

Hopefully I'll be more present this week with reading your blogs and keeping up with my own. I'm still here - everything is just crazy and hectic right now. Hopefully things are a lot calmer where you are. Happy Monday, friends.


  1. Ugh, hate when all that happens at one time. Sounds like my luck! Hope things are better!

  2. Hope you get adjusted to your new schedule quick! And that Riley adjusts as well. Poor guy!

    And I definitely vote for the spa weekend. ;)

  3. Oh no, I can't believe all that happened...and the shoe. I would be mad.

    Things will calm down soon, I hope.


Thank you for stopping by!
