WIWW: Confessions + Link Up

I confess...Monday was the first day back to school and, whew, I forgot how exhausting it is! I realized I haven't been in the classroom since March 30th and I forgot so many how to login to the announcements, how to turn on my projector, etc. By the end of the day I felt like I had just ran a marathon, but it is nice to be back in the swing of things.

I confess...I'm addicted to Bachelor in Paradise.

I confess...Ray-Bans are so worth the money. They are just so comfortable.

I confess...Graham is still waking up 1-3 times a night and I'm counting the days until he sleeps through the night...whenever that may be. We started giving him rice cereal and he loves it! But, the doctors are right; it is a total myth that filling them up with rice cereal will help them sleep through the night!

I confess...I've lost my working out mojo. It has been so hot lately, and now that school has started, I just want to get home and snuggle G. Maybe these cute leggings will get me back on track? Maybe?

I confess...I miss summer. It seems like it flew by and I feel like I spent the majority of it in a new mom fog, so I'd like a re-do, please!

I confess...I wish I would have had a reason to buy one of these beautiful beach towels or any of these fun floats, but, alas, I figured out that newborns and pools/100 degree weather don't mix, so inside we stayed.

I confess...these adorable socks are going to make some great stocking stuffers and gifts for my friends come the holidays!

I confess...pretty books make me feel like an adult. Then as Graham drools on them I am quickly reminded that I'm an adult mom and I no longer can have nice things.

I confess...these are the cutest thermoses I've ever seen. They'd make drinking my coffee with 20 ten your olds much more enjoyable :)

I confess...I'm adding two adorable pictures of G because school has got me all frazzled and there has been nothing cute about my outfits. But, I do love reading all the blogs that are linking up with me! It is a nice brain break during my lunch break.

Happy Wednesday!

WIWW: Transitioning + Link Up

This outfit is perfect for transitioning into fall. Even though we are still scorching here in Texas, I'm dreaming of cooler weather and cuter outfits. You can't go wrong with a bucket bag, grey jeans, and a white tank.

Also transitioning is how I am now a working mom. Yesterday I wrote about my thoughts and feelings regarding going back to work and I really appreciate all the sweet emails. You sure know how to make a momma feel like she ins't alone in this world!

On being a working mom...

As most of you know, I've taught 5th grade for the past three years now. Before I became a teacher I worked as an accountant. I have my MBA and have always been pretty ambitious...

Until I became a mom...

Not that I am not ambitious anymore...

It is just that my little G man made me a pile of mush!

I had until July 8th to decide if I was going to renew my contract for this coming school year. I literally waited until the last minute to decide. At the time of my decision I was in the midst of G's three month sleep regression/growth spurt, breastfeeding at all hours of the day, and running on fumes. I longed for adult interaction and to somewhat feel like myself again. So, I hesitantly signed my contract and came to grips that I'd be teaching another year.

Then, Thursday came....and I cried the entire way to school, at school, in the middle of introducing myself, when I got home, and before I went to bed. I bawled to Chris on the phone that I was DYING INSIDE and that I was for sure not going back after June. #dramacticmuch?

Friday was much better, but I still missed being home with G, watching GMA, playing and napping, going out and about, and snuggling.

Then the weekend gave me the refresh I needed.

Now it is Monday night and I have come to terms with the fact that I will need to just take one day at a time. Am I anxious for June to come? DUH! But I know that I became a teacher for a reason. I teach my demographic for a reason. My school babies need lovin' and I know that G is getting more than they will ever experience.

I know God put me in this position for a reason and I'll be a better mom and wife for it, but I sure so miss my G baby during the day!!

So, as I still transition into this whole working mom role, please pray for me and this upcoming school year. I am more than thankful to have stayed home with Graham for four months and now it is time that I share some love with my cherubs at school!

Have a great Tuesday!
