Happy Friday, friends!! I cannot believe how fast this summer is flying by. I just want to freeze time and soak up as much of this beautiful warm weather as possible.
Today I'm super excited, though, because I'm the featured blogger in the High Five for Friday linkup! If you're visiting me today, welcome. Hope you stick around!
Alright, onto the top five moments of the week:
1 // I just can't get enough of the beach! There's nothing more relaxing and therapeutic than feeling the warm sand between my toes. Pure bliss. I'm so lucky to live so close to the shore,
2 // Speaking of the beach, my former college roommate is coming to Jersey next week. I haven't seen her in almost two years, so I can't wait to give her a huge hug and catch up in person. I'm so proud of all that she has accomplished since we last spent time together!
3 // To make matters even better, I get to see two of my other roommates this fall! Amanda is coming to Philly in September, and I'm meeting Kati out in Chicago come October. Going to Wheaton was an incredible experience, but it's sure hard to be away from the amazing people I met while I was there. These trips have been a long time coming!
4 // A local mall held an awesome event the other night called "Educator's Night Out". They hosted about fifty local teachers at a nearby salon and offered food, drinks, lots of swag, and even hooked us up with back massages and more. I didn't have anyone to go with since registration filled up so fast, but I went anyway (surprised myself - I don't usually do things like that!) and had an awesome time. Cheers to being bold!
I was not, however, bold enough to take any pictures besides this one.
5 // And finally, this week I discovered that working from home is the bomb (dot) com! As a teacher, the whole point of my job is to be at school, and I've always envied blog friends who can work from home and chill in their PJs all day long. Well, my supervisor asked me to write some curriculum and told me I could do it wherever I wanted, so I decided to see if I'm cut out for that kind of profession. I put dinner in the crockpot, lit and candle for inspiration, and went to town.
How was your week? What do you have planned for the weekend?
