Thursday Thoughts

Happy Thursday! I've been so busy lately I feel like I haven't done one of these posts in a while!

Things I did this week //

* Tried to get back into the swing of waking up early! After a week-long beach vacation, its tough to hear my alarm go off at 5:30 am. The good news is Summer Vacation is only 7 weeks away! Can you believe it!?

* Enjoyed some time outside! The weather has finally turned to Spring here in VT! We even got one day over 85 degrees!! Such a nice gift. My students were all asking if we could learn outside all day- I was tempted to say yes!

* Made the most delicious Shrimp Tacos- I didn't really follow any particular recipe. I cooked my shrimp in blackened seasoning and then had some lettuce, pico, guac,  and chipotle mayo in a soft shell- SO good. 

Things I'm doing this weekend // 

* Hopefully relaxing- does anyone else feel like they need a vacation from their vacation when they get home!? I've been exhausted and feel like I have so much to do! Such as laundry- ugh! 

* The weather is supposed to be gorgeous on Saturday so I think I'll head to the local nurseries to see the flower options! I really want to plant some more flowers this year.  Last year I only planted a few in pots & this year I want to get some into the actual ground!

* I reallllly need to get some things in order #adulting - I looked behind our chaise lounge chair the other day and found a stack of important papers- yikes! I'm trying to go through all of the papers around our house and get things organized! I even bought cute folders to motivate me. 

What are your plans for the weekend?



  1. I think working as a teacher is so fun! Plus you get all these vacations :) And you are not the only one to feel the need of a vacation right after you came home from one haha. The thing I dislike the most is to unpack all my clothes / things from my luggage again. But exploring a new place is worth all the struggle :)

  2. Ugh! I'm counting down the weeks to summer for sure!

    Good luck with your weekend plans.

  3. I always feel like I need a vacation after my vacation. Getting back into the swing of things is tough!

  4. I love shrimp tacos! There's a restaurant/brewery near me that does the most delicious shrimp tacos I've ever had. Enjoy your weekend :)

  5. So glad to hear it's finally nice in Vermont- what a rough and long winter!! I've had a hard time this week at work with being indoors all day too- I can relate to your students!
