TGIF x 5

It's Friday. This should be a good thing. I think it might be but you be the judge of my day so far....

Selfies with the babe are always a favorite!!

I woke up with a migraine - so you can guess my morning. Good thing I talked my dad into prescribing me some 100mg migraine meds. Let me just share with you that I was super light headed, couldn't hold my coffee cup without my hands shaking and driving into work myself might not have been the best idea for the other cars on the road. But I made safe and soud and no ones life was actually put at risk.

We are playing a volleyball unit in my PE classes this week. [Before I started teaching 7 years ago, I     H A T E D volleyball. It hurt my arms, the ball would never go where I wanted an there was NO WAY I was ever going to dvr too the gym floor for a stupid ball] Fast forward to teaching, when I was doing my student teaching I had to do a volleyball unit. The star player for the team was in my class.  She was the nicest girl ever. She was so kid and supportive of her classmates whose skills we lacking (but better than mine) and she was so encouraging no matter what!! It's because of her that I can do volleyball. It has now become my favorite sport to teach and I just keep getting better and better every time I play!! This year (I play in class with my high school kiddos) I am actually one of the first players picked for teams - not because I'm the teacher but because I can actually play!! I even dove for the ball earlier this week and have a gym floor burn on my ankle.

When I go home from work today I sat down on the carpeted floor with Ellie to play. This is normal. What is not normal is when I stood up my butt was wet. I had Thomas smell my shorts and yes I sat in dog pee. Awesome!!! I had I take a quick shower (and change my clothes) before we went out to dinner.

We lost both of Ellie's binkies. Actually that isn't entirely true. We know where one of them is. It ran away in our nanny "Miss J's" car. When I went to grab her other one on my bedside table it was gone. No where to be found. Luckily we have a back up that until this point Ellie wouldn't even look at it! In a pinch it worked but now we have to go out and buy her a new one at the only store we know of that sells this particular pacifier that Ellie likes.

Life has been so busy and crazy lately that I haven't had a chance to work on our bathroom makeover at all this week. We are heading up north again to pick up a mirror and towel holder I found last week for the bathroom. After we get those up it's just a bunch of touch ups, artwork, new towels, and a shower curtain DIY!!  Soon I hope to show it to you all!

And that's a five!!



  1. I'm so sorry to hear you've been sick. I'm a migraine sufferer too, you have my full empathy. I hope you're feeling better today xx

  2. I can't wait to the new bathroom makeover! Hope you enjoy your weekend. xo!

  3. Oh man migraines - no good! I don't get them (thankfully) but I get really awful tension headache that I can barely think through so I can't imagine how much worse a migraine must be. Hope you're feeling better!

  4. Wow, what a day! One of the things I tell parents to can never have to many pacifiers! And that's a huge change from what I thought when my little guy was born. Then I was totally against pa-pas because we were working on the breastfeeding thing. It didn't take too long for me to change my mind! :)

  5. Oh my gosh! This does not sound like it was the best day! I hope your weekend has been much better and that you didn't have that after migraine hangover that I get. I can't wait to see the bathroom when you finish it.
