I’m a fan of the color block sweaters! I’ve been eyeing them, trying to figure out what color options I thought were the best for me. I finally decided on the blues. This one is extra cute because it has bell sleeves! The sweater material is soft and loose feeling. I ordered a small and it fit true to size. It’s meant to be oversized. This is a fun sweater that you can dress up or dress down. It made for a great opportunity to wear my over the knees boots!
This is the first group of photos I took using my new selfie lighting ring and tripod! It was really easy to use!
It’s New Year’s Eve and we are headed to the casino for a fun-filled week. Tonight we will go to a party, then to the ZZ Top Concert. Tomorrow, we get to go to a special brunch with my sister-in-law. I’m sure we will find some time to gamble and play slots around that busy schedule. We want to start the year off winning!! (Don’t we all!!)
I already feel like a winner, as I was pleasantly surprised by this gray leopard print sweater. It fits so perfectly and is a cozy soft sweater material. I’m planning on wearing this to the casino this weekend, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to become a staple in my wardrobe!! They have lots of other color options and even some other prints. I may have to load up on these, because this is the perfect sweater to wear to work or with jeans! Dress it up or dress it down! I’m wearing a size small. The price is right, too!! It’s under $20!!

Once a year we do an Ugly Christmas Sweater day. I’ve worn the same ones for the last 30 years or so, so I decided to update my ugly Xmas sweater. I actually think this one is pretty cute! I really like the material and it fits true to size. This is a small. I can’t wait to wear it to work!!
This is the second year the office staff has put on a Hot Cocoa Bar for the rest of the staff. My favorite part of doing this is seeing the boring conference room turned into Christmas Central! This year’s fire place mantel looked better than the mantel at my home!!
It’s red ribbon week at school and today’s theme is Put a Cap on Drugs!! I love these little CC beanies with the fur pom pom on them! I have several in different colors. I thought the gray went best with my cute ruffled sleeved shirt from Divas and Darlings in Rockwall. The shirts come in light pink and gray also. I love the maroon color best on me, though!
I’m doing the Transformation Challenge at Orange Theory, so currently really pushing myself to eat healthy. I’m tracking what I eat and trying to make good choices. First week down and I did pretty good. The key is all about being prepared. This week, I was prepared for lunch with this delicious meal!
- 1 container (28 spears ea.), Asparagus Spears
- 1 container (16 oz ea.), Smoked Sausage
- 1 tablespoon, Oil – Olive
- 24 oz, Chicken
- 2 squash, Cooked
- 2 tsp, Cajun Seasoning
I used a wok, since it holds the most food of all my pans. I put a little olive oil, then threw in the squash and zucchini.
Then I threw in the asparagus and sprinkled the cajun seasoning all over it.
Then I added the (precooked frozen) chicken and Ekrich Sausage.
This is SOOO delicious!!! Definitely going to be a staple for my meal prep.
Everyone is back to school as of this week!! I love the first days back. I even secretly like all the hokey ice breakers because they are usually pretty fun and you get to learn about the other teachers. This year one of our ice breakers was to make a hand and decorate it. We found the idea on pinterest. We made this cute wreath out of all the hands to let everyone know that we all have a hand in learning. Our goal next week is to have the kids make their own hands to add to the wall. I think it will be really cute! I can’t wait to see all the hands on the wall!!
