I'm Slacking

Hey guys! I hope you haven't abandoned me. I have put off blogging for a couple days and it felt good and bad. I loved coming home from school, relaxing with my sweet husband, and catching up on my TV shows BUT I also missed reading and commenting on my favorite blogs and writing my own.

Things have slowed down around here in regards to decorating and school starting but I'm hoping to become inspired soon. Ever get in that funk? Hopefully when our bed arrives I will become rejuvenated.

A couple of fun things that I did the past couple of days...

1) I went to the Taylor Swift concert with my mom! We had great, wonderful, awesome seats and Taylor was so entertaining. She appears so humble and grateful and I think that is so endearing about her. She's right there up near Britney status for me! I never thought another lady would take that spot but Tay Tay is getting close.

I snapped a pretty crappy cell phone pic and it looks pretty bad but at least you can see we were there! Has anyone else got to see her "Speak Now" tour? If you can, I totally recommend it!

2) I started my 8th year of teaching. Say wha???? I can't believe it either; I'm considered a veteran teacher. Weird. I'm as ready as I'll ever be for this school year and I have a feeling it is going to be an exciting one! : ) I get to see those bright eyed kiddos on Thursday and I'm hoping for a great class roster.

3) It may not be a big deal to anyone but I made biscuits and gravy last night for maybe the second time in my life. It's one of my favorite foods and my maw maw is the master biscuits and gravy maker. She taught me well, but I've got a looooong way to go. It did take me two attempts to get it right last night...that gravy is so tricky!

Let me just apologize for the camera phone quality. David dropped my phone in the sink last night and we thought it bit the dust, but magically and thankfully, it's working in its own special way--haha.

So that's it for me. How are you?

When I get a chance I'll crank out some craigslist posts. Promise.

xoxo

I've been totally MIA, too. Between vacation and sickness and such... but I'm missing everyone too. Glad to catch up.

And I totally want some biscuits and gravy, now ;)

You think you're a slacker? It takes a lot for me to get 2 posts a month! :) Have fun on your first day of school!

Hey Joi!!

Take time for yourself. We all need it - and I think I might just follow suit! :)

I started a new feature on my blog called: "A Picture is Worth..." it's a call back to posting pics of CDLV, I really hope you'll stop by and check it out! :) xo,A

Making good biscuit gravy is an art, not a science. My MIL's gravy is perfect, so my hubby will never rave over mine, but I try to get close. Mmm ... now you have me craving gravy.
