1. I’m officially on spring break since last Saturday! My spring break is 2 weeks long (the college is a week before the school I work at) so I’m excited to just be home for a little bit.

2. I had a 45 page paper due on Tuesday by 5 and I finished it on Monday. BAM! It was a TON of work, but it’s officially the last paper I’ll ever have to write for my undergrad.

3. Blissdom is less than TWO weeks away. I’m working my butt off to lose weight so I look extra good in my Hope’s stuff!

4. I took my last Texas state exam to be a certified EC-6th grade teacher, the Generalist yesterday. I’m SO happy! It was the last of 3 tests, and I’m glad to have them out of the way.

5. I made some KILLER green chili enchiladas that were not very many calories yesterday. I’m pretty proud of myself at how they came out!

Low-Cal Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas- coming soon on the blog!

I’ll have to make them soon so I can put the recipe on the blog (as requested via an Instagram friend)

6. When I wrote my post about getting rid of my split ends, someone mentioned I should try Argan Oil. I bought some on Sunday and have used the shampoo and oil several times now and I can totally tell a difference in just the amount of frizz and split ends!

Moroccan Argan Oil

Totally putting it out there for the record- I love this stuff! Even better, HEB had a coupon for buying one Organix product and getting the other free! It was meant to be 🙂

7. Everyone has been SO encouraging about me getting back into working out on here, Instagram, and Twitter. It really has meant a lot to me. I can use all the encouragement I can, and I appreciate it!

8. My mom and sister visited last weekend (kinda unexpectedly) and I was so happy to see them 🙂 I took them to get pedicures, window shop, and get coffee at Common Grounds.

Like mother like daughters. Hey- we like leopard flats!


1. Pearl has been a bad girl and has been pooping in the house! I have no idea why, but it’s driving me crazy. She’s done is 3 times in 2 days and it’s making us mad because she’s fully potty trained. She’s not sick or anything, but she just isn’t ringing her bells to tell us she has to go. Hopefully she’ll cut it out ASAP.

2. Although I finished my 45 page paper, it totally sucked the life out of me this week. So not cool. On the funny side, when I told my observation supervisor that I was freaking out that it wasn’t long enough she sent this:

Don't panic- it gives you wrinkles!

3. Mathew got REALLY sick on Friday. He had to leave work and said he was having chest pains. It was pretty scary and he thought he was having a heart attack or something. It ended up being chest spasms. They caused his whole left arm to go numb and he couldn’t feel anything on it for like 2 hours. It was scary, but I’m glad it wasn’t anything worse. I really don’t know what I’d do without him.

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