This isn't the most in-order post ever, but whatever! It is Friday finally, and praise God for it! Needless to say being off for election day totally threw me off. I am perfectly fine going to work everyday, but when I get off work I start fantasizing about not working...quitting...being fired...which then turns into me looking for ways I can work somewhere with more freedom. Needless to say nothing pays someone with a Masters in Teaching quite as well as being a teacher...there are no other jobs for me.
See what an odd day off does to me? Ruins the whole week. I am the opposite of productive when I have a random day off.
Last weekend we took Joshua to see Sesame Street Live. Quite the interesting experience. I don't think he slept well the night before, and was in need of more napping the day of. He started off great, but we all know how quickly the tides turn with 2 year olds.
He is so funny how he thinks Jeremy and I are so great, mainly because he doesn't see us much which makes us a bit of a hot commodity, but still fun none the less. He follows Jeremy around and wants to do whatever he does. Friday night Jeremy helped himself to some ice cream...and Joshua helped himself to Jeremy's bowl. I was cracking up when Laura tried to get some and Joshua wouldn't let her because "it was his and Jeremy's ice cream."
Saturday we headed out for Sesame Street sans Jeremy, he was at the church helping with the Fall Festival. Can you tell how excited little dude was about seeing Big Bird?
See all those Elmo ballons? Parents were nearly running to get one at intermission...10 bucks per mylar Elmo head. Needless to say we did not purchase one. I nearly fainted when the guy said the price.
Cracker Barrell was also on the list, I was in desperate need of another pumpkin custard, sadly I have to report the wait was far too long. I think I may die without my pumpkin custard soon. Instead we headed across the street to Whataburger. While Laura was ordering Josh came and sat across from me, folded his arms and said "Hi Mimi, I'm Joshua." Too cute!
I tried out Megan's curl down method the other day and it worked out pretty well. I need more practice, seriously I haven't curled my hair in years and I think I forgot how!
Today we went to speak at the local high school's FCA meeting, and when I say "we" I mean that I looked cute while our friend Luke did all the talking. I am not much for public speaking and actually had a panic attack last year when I was supposed to talk at FCA. Yeah I know, I'm a hot mess.
Just so happened before I left I found a cute outfit pic and decided to try it out.
Last but not least here is my favorite healthy dessert/breakfast recipe. When I am really wanting sweets this hits the spot.
Greek Yogurt Parfait:
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1 banana, sliced
few dashes of cinnamon
1-2 tbsp honey
Combine ingredients in bowl and enjoy!
I also like to add berries, granola, nuts,
or dried fruit depending on what I have on hand.
