Thursday Thoughts

Happy last Thursday of Summer Vacation! Well for me at least! Our school year begins for students next Wednesday so it's full steam ahead from here on out. The picture above is of the cutest booties I purchased at Nordstrom Rack this past weekend. They are Steven by Steve Madden. I think these will be a great addition to my closet for fall because they're a great tan color & have a low heel which means I can wear them to work! 

Things I did this week //

* On Sunday & Monday, I was in New York shopping with my mom. We drove to Albany which is about 3 1/2 -  4 hours from where we live in Vermont.  It was fun to get to spend some time with her & enjoy the luxuries Vermont doesn't have like Ulta & Cheesecake Factory! 

* Tuesday I had a meeting to plan out the first week of the school year. We are doing some many fun activities the first few days, I'm so excited! I also can't wait to share the cutest JCrew skirt I got for the 1st day! 

* Wednesday & Thursday were spent at New Teacher Orientation. In total the orientation was about 10 hours- so quite a lot of time. I got my ID badge, district laptop, parking pass and important information like healthcare! 

Things I'm doing this weekend // 

* Going out for burgers. Do you ever just craveeeee a huge burger!? I really want one & some buffalo chicken dip! There's a burger place near us that has the most delicious dip ever!

* Perusing Barnes & Noble for some new reads. One thing my new district really stresses is being mindful and taking care of yourself so you don't get burnt out. How can we really help others if we can't even do proper self-care? I'm hoping to pick up a few books & dedicate a little while each night to reading.

* Cleaning! I really need to get my house in order prior to the first day of school or else it will be messy until Thanksgiving break!

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



  1. I am a teacher, too! Let me know if you ever have any questions. I am going into my 5th year!

  10. Have an amazing first day of school! I bet that burger was so delicious. Burgers are the food that I crave the most. Mindfulness is such a popular topic lately and for good reason. I think you'll find a lot of amazing books! Also consider looking for free online resources, phone apps, and books at your public library.

  11. Nothing's better than an afternoon spent bookstore browsing! It's so relaxing!
