Hello Friends, In the fall, my dad and I got together for dinner and starting thinking about locations for my Spring Break. I feel so lucky to have a whole week off in the spring, and usually spend it traveling … Continue reading
A few weeks ago my family and I flew to Mexico to enjoy a few days of sunshine and lovely fresh beach air on our spring break. My brother was able to take the week off from work and … Continue reading
The sun was warm, strong and made playing in the water that much sweeter. We snorkled most days and enjoyed hours of reading by the pool, in the hammock or on a beach towel. We checked out local places, and picked up some Tortuga Rum, Rum Cakes and other fun treats to bring back home. We munched on tasty coconut popsicles, watermelon soda and banana chips from the local grocery store in the afternoons by the beach.
The smell of fresh ocean everyday, full bellies every night and copious amounts of sleep made for a week beyond unreal. It was a week I could do every year if I could. I came back feeling refreshed, and ready to tackle the rest of the school-year.
It makes me think every break I have should feel that good. I know I struggle with unplugging, but when you do, it’s better than you can every imagine.
January was such a busy month!
This cute little thing just came in the mail! I always love getting new Kiel James Patrick boxes, because they come with the cutest packaging!
I was able to knock 7 things off my 101 in 1001 list. Wahoo!
1. Inspire someone to write their own list (Yay)
2. Go wine tasting with friends or family (Napa Valley was so beautiful)
35. Organize my Itunes
39. Find my signature cocktail (Lemondrop, oh so yummy)
63. Buy a plane ticket with frequent flier miles only (the Santa Fe trip in March)
98. Get a hammock (Given to me by the lovely Maureen!!)
Done and done!
I have a few more items I plan to cross off in the works for February, so it should be a great month!
It felt like every weekend in January was jam-packed, from going to Napa, having friends over for fun cocktails, to babysitting basically every day of the weekend. February looks to be as busy as January was, complete with a trip with friends to Tahoe and a family trip to the Cayman Islands (eeek!!). This may or may not have contributed to the radio silence here on the blog.
Work is going well, and teaching full-time makes for a busy day, but I have been slowly carving out gym time, which has been good to get back in my life. I have a dinner date set up with Annie and my favorite old proff to discuss the masters program at SCU for this fall. I’m both alternatively stoked and dreading going back to night classes.
I finally set up a savings plan so I now can look forward to one day having a fancy-pants camera and a KS watch sometime in the next year or so.
Oh, and February is my no-spending month, so wish me luck!
We had such a grey, rainy, perfect for snuggling with the pups weekend. I babysat for a lot of the weekend, but did manage to get in a few hours working on my quilt. It was a great way to finish out the week.
