Schoooool's Out for SUMMER!!!

Hello, blogger  buddies! It's been a while...but rather than explain why I have been gone (like my last few posts from last YEAR)...I am BACK and ready to get back into the blogging world! 

I thought the best way to get back in the groove would be to join one of my favorite linky parties...Sunday Smorgasbord!


::Numero Uno::

This weekend I have been working on my first of MANY summer projects. I have been searching for this cabinet for FIVE years. Yes, FIVE. I came across this beauty on Craigslist this week and knew she was THE ONE! With a little TLC she is now the perfect little accent piece in my living area. I am in LOVE, y'all! I am planning a little Home Goods trip sometime soon to find some cute 
little didi's to add to the cabinet.  What do y'all think?

Photo: Summer project #1....Done! Turned this $100 Craigslist find into a beautiful new accent piece in my house! Now on to painting some walls!

I took the plunge and applied for a graduate program in January and guess what... I got in! YAY! I started classes this week and absolutely love my program and my professors so far! My program is a little different than your typical, but I think it is going to be just right for me. I have two classes that I will complete in June and one in July. It is a cohort program that is held in the county that I teach in and all of the students and professors are from our surrounding area. I am so excited to begin this journey. Now I many not be quite so excited in a few months 
once all the papers roll in...but here's to hoping! Wish me luck! :)

::Numero Tres::

Speaking of grad school, I just bought this little piece of technology and can't wait until it comes in! I am normally and Apple kind of girl, but several teachers at my school have this and LOVE it! 

::Numero Quatro::

A friend of mine just started selling Younique. I have been looking for a new mascara so I thought I would try the 3D fiberlash mascara she sells. that I am writing about my recent purchases...I think it's time to cut myself off from buying anything else for a while!! Stay tuned for my own review of the mascara! Look how pretty those lashes are!

::Numero Cinco::

HA! This Someecard OWNS me! I have a whole board devoted to "Operation Hott Bod" and I can honestly say that I have not done ONE single thing off of it! I am bound and determined to get back on the workout bandwagon. This year was a tough one with adjusting to raising a 16 year old (my brother) and a challenging class. But hey, I made it and things are great now! Mark my words, I vow to do some sort of physical activity at least 3 days a week this summer.  

Last but not least...

Father's Day is upon us and this has been a very difficult day for me the past few years. I lost my sweet daddy very unexpectedly almost 3 years ago. Rather than feel sorry for myself, which is SO easy to do, today I want to honor my amazing dad. I was so blessed to have called him mine and although I miss him, I know one day we will be reunited! Oh, what a glorious and sweet day that will be! I love you to the moon and back, Big T!


I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Sunday!
