Hail State

Two weekends ago, Arkansas played Miss. State at Starkville, and the whole Chilton crew travelled to the game! The game ended being a big win for State.  We ended the night with dinner and bowling.  And I have to brag on myself...I dominated!

Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends. Don't forgot to thank the big man upstairs. Say a prayer for those families that are hurting today. I pray for God to wrap his arms around them during this holiday season.

Color Run and Girls Weekend!

It was a girls weekend for me! School was out Friday, so I went with a few teachers to the Holiday House. I bought an adorable Santa Sign for my front door and a new teacher tote!

Holiday House got me in the Christmas spirit and I spent part of Saturday pulling out Christmas boxes and put up the tree! I used to have a rule growing up that Christmas music and trees do not go up until after Thanksgiving, but now that I have a home and a ton of decorating ideas I cannot contain myself! Christmas decor pics soon to come!

Saturday I spent the morning with my life-long friend, Jonica, where we participated in the Color Run in downtown LR! It was so much fun to complete the 5k and hang out with her!

Saturday afternoon and night I got to catch up with mom and Jen Pen because she was home since State was playing at LSU. I cannot wait for next weekend in Starkville. MSU plays Arkansas!

Currently- November

Currently- October

Listening/Watching: Pandora, Maroon 5 Station.  I am in love with Adam from Maroon 5. He is on the Voice and I just stare at his beautiful face.  Seth and I have a competition when we watch the Voice. He is team Blake and I am team Adam.  If you watch the show you know that those two go at it all the time!

Adam Levine File Photo

Loving: the colors of the leaves.  I was doing a photo shoot the other day and saw the most beautiful yellow, canary tree. 

Thinking: I feel like Superwoman! Between school, lesson plans, checklists, and home, cleaning the house, laundry, cooking, and editing photos I feel like superwoman. I realized last night that I don't even have kids and I'm already this busy!

Wanting: Elf on the Shelf for my classroom.  I have never done Elf on the Shelf before and I really want to do it this year! I already have many lesson plan ideas and activities for my kids to do!

Needing: A mental-health day. I need a day to just drink coffee in my pajamas, read, and relax.

Reading: The Last Baby Angel, by Sam Calvin Brown.  Sam is a local author from Benton.  I went to school with his sister, and she and I both love to read. It is a reallllly great book. I will devote a whole post to this book soon and post a link where you can order it!

Have a wonderful day! GO VOTE!

I am blogging about my wonderful co-teachers! I wouldn't be afloat without them! I am so blessed to be at such a wonderful school with wonderful people and wonderful co-teachers.
I just made it through the first nine weeks and my first official parent teacher conferences and I have these three to thank for it! Thanks for all you do! You have no idea how much fun you make teaching for me! Have I mentioned before that I LOVE my job?
