Thursday Thoughts

How cute are these Halogen Slides!? I love them! 

Happy Thursday Everyone! This summer just seems to be flying by, before we know it it's going to be September! Yikes! 

Things I did this week // 

* I'm super excited to share that I accepted a position teaching 1st grade in Chittenden County! I won't lie and tell you getting a teaching job has been easy because it has been far from it, but it honestly is the most rewarding career for me. I can't wait to share more of this great adventure with you!

* To celebrate my new job my parents made a delicious dinner with my favorite Mac and Cheese along with a giant Costco cake...that said it feeds 48...oops! But seriously Costco cake has to be the best cake in the world, it's just SO good.

* Kyle & I tried a new restaurant in Burlington called 'The Spot on The Dock'. The atmosphere here is great as it's right on the lake with beautiful views. We went early so we didn't have to wait for a table but when we were seated we weren't given any menus, then when we asked for one they said they were out?? Then we ended up with one that was missing a page! It was just a little strange. We both ordered a beer and got avocado fries as an app which was very tasty. The menu felt very limited and there weren't many entree options. Overall I would only come back here for drinks & snacks. 

Things I'm doing this weekend // 

* Kyle & I are off to Boston for the weekend. He has been super busy with work and has a few days of downtime this weekend so we decided to pack up & take a little trip. Surprisingly there are a lot of great hotel deals in Boston right now! I thought it was going to be really expensive to get a room downtown but it's not bad at all.

* We are planning to just explore Boston & eat lots of good food. Last time we were in town we did a historic walk & read all of the different signs and such which was really fun. It's looking like it going to be quite hot when we go so maybe we will venture down to the water!

Do you have any fun weekend plans? Let me know!
