Suede & Giveaway!

Hi, my name is Christine and I write this blog. May have forgotten me. Well there is a very good reason for my recent absence (however, if you aren't following me on insta go do it now! I'm regularly posting over there!) For those who may not know, this summer I accepted a teaching position which means I am finally back in the classroom! Very long awaited and my heart has been all there since last May. It has been such a fun, exhausting, and exciting transition back into the classroom. After the last 2 years of working on the special Ed side of things it has only confirmed my belonging in the classroom. We are officially a month or so into school now. Back to School night has passed, the initial 10 emails a day of answering questions have passed, I finally know how to get to the teachers lounge and we even have our first field trip out of the way. So now that things on that end have slowed down I feel as though I finally have a moment to breath and catch up on anything and everything that isn't a lesson plan or new staff meeting. 

This weekend was the perfect weekend to unplug from schoolwork, as it is my honey and I's anniversary. Each year we make reservations somewhere that stretches our wallets, I come home to flowers and cards and we take a ton of pictures. This year was a little different. While trying to save money, and also learning all about new food issues I have recently been diagnosed with, eating out this year wasn't for us. We decided to wake up, venture out to a cute little cafe for some brunch, enjoy the cooler weather, and grocery shop for our homemade dinner of Filet Mignon and Lobster. This comfy, yet put together look helped me do just that.
