1. Mathew had a half day of work yesterday so we got to get in a movie AND dinner before our normal time that he’d even be home! It was nice to have together time. Plus, we went out to the lake afterward and took some fun pictures really quick.

2. I got emailed by the district I’m student teaching in to become a substitute! This is HUGE! The district I’m in right now is REALLY hard to get into. Subbing is just the way to get my foot in the door for the end of the school year and get my name out there while principals are checking out resumes. Y’all know being on one income is hard, so getting in a little bit of cash will be nice.
3. I got to hang out with my friends Hollie, Cherish, and Samantha this week for school. I love hanging out with them and talking “teacher” language.
4. My sister’s friend, Michelle, got released from the hospital today. If you didn’t know, she’d been in a terrible four-wheeler wreck. I’m so glad she is out of the hospital.
5. I got a curling wand to do a product review on that has 4 interchangable barrel sizes. I haven’t been able to try it out yet, but I can’t wait!

I know it looks dirty, but I swear it’s a curling wand


1. I’ve been tired ALL week and can’t seem to catch up. Last night it took me an hour to fall asleep AND then I kept waking up almost every hour. I tried my sound machine but it annoyed Mathew so I didn’t really get to use it.

2. I haven’t really cooked this week. I”ve been so busy with resumes and junk that I’ve just been more willing to grab something. Gotta fix that!

3. I may have ugly cried this week because of the resumes. As mentioned yesterday, I kinda thought I’d messed them up but I was able to update it online without any problems so I am happy.

Now it’s YOUR turn to link up for Happies and Crappies!
