Life Lately

Hello, my friends!  I've missed you lately!  It seems like my life has exploded with activity over the past couple of weeks and it hasn't yet slowed-down.  I'm not posting as frequently as I would like and I haven't been to visit my favorite blogs in what feels like ages (sorry, ladies!)...and I most certainly haven't taken any outfit photos.

I have diligently been wearing my 15x31 Remix outfits but I won't be able to post about them tomorrow seeing as I don't have any photographic evidence.  I will hopefully have a little photo shoot this weekend to get back on track.  What I will do today is share a little bit about what I've been up to, along with a few Instagram photos.

Last week on Wednesday, I left for my beloved Michigan where I had a fun and action-packed five days.  On Thursday and Friday, I attended the Michigan World Language Conference for teachers.  This event is always an inspirational and rejuvenating experience for me.  This year, I actually gave a presentation at the conference!  I had spent a lot of time preparing for my session and I was pretty nervous, so I felt really proud when my presentation went well!  I celebrated by eating delicious food, drinking wine, and relaxing with a few of my favorites.

Oh, and I got my hair cut (yes, I still get my hair cut in Michigan).

Football Saturdays are one of my favorite fall events so I was happy that the trip for my conference coincided with the Michigan State v. University of Michigan game (one of the biggest games of the year).  I tailgated in the crisp fall air all day with my family and then happily watched my Spartans defeat the Wolverines.

After a whirlwind weekend, I am back to work...which is a lot of work lately.  I recently took on an extra responsibility at school which is proving to be exhausting and time-consuming.  I gave-up my planning period to teach a class that I've never taught before.  That means I need to spend even more time than usual lesson planning but I have even less time to do so.  I've been working until 8:00 most evenings and am feeling so darn tired.  Basically, when I wake-up in the morning and see this, I just want to crawl back into bed with Izzo:

I'm hoping to feel a bit more on top of life by this weekend.  I will definitely be showing you the next round of Alex and my "take one, pass it on" challenge on Friday and I hope to catch-up on my blog reading this weekend!  In the meantime, may we all have a stress-free end to our work-week with a relaxing weekend on the horizon!
