Saturday Snapshots-A week in the life

Wow, two posts in one day.  I know, you're all as thrilled as I am.  I decided to link up to Saturday Snapshots today because I have been collecting a lot of fun pictures recently.  This is my very first Saturday Snapshots, and I am really hoping that my iPhone photos look alright.  

Here it goes...

Home and Personal Stuff

 I loved the look of the birds on the roof of my neighbors home.  Can you see them?  You might have to squint.  

I made these curtains for our guest room!  This is my first (and perhaps last) sewing project.  They are also fully lined to keep out the heat and sunlight.  Unfortunately, I already bought the fabric for the office, so I'm on the hook for a few more curtains.  I want to finish those this week so I can put away my hideous sewing table.  

Can you think of anything better for a forty-five minute commute.  I just got these two books from the library today.  I love chick lit!

At the Beach

My mom and I went to Florida for the beach wedding of a long time friend.  The pictures are actually in reverse order.  The wedding was on Saturday at Mexico Beach, and then we went to Panama City Beach on Sunday.  

This is the partial beach view from our room at the Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort.  We were in the lazy river for most of the time, but there are no pictures of that because we were in the water! 

These are from the Luau.  They have this special entertainment every Sunday and Wednesday.

School Stuff

I only have one school related picture, but I am absolutely in love with the start of this bulletin board.  I can't wait to figure out what I'm putting on it!  Stay tuned, although it may be a while since I'm still figuring it out.  Don't you love the polka dot letters?!? I got them on TeachersPayTeachers from The 3am Teacher.  


  1. Hey! I live in Panama City Beach!! The very first time I came to PCB 8 years ago, I stayed at the Sandpiper Beacon and it was madness during Spring Break. Definitely overwhelming. I hope the weather was nice for your visit!

    1. Wow, how lucky you are to live there. It is lovely! The Sandpiper wasn't madness, but there were a TON of kids. We were only there for one day and there was one storm. Thankfully we were in the Tiki Bar, so we just played Words With Friends with the blaring music. :)

  2. I also have a long commute and I'm constantly listening to audiobooks! Sometimes I feel like that's the only time I have to get any reading in!

    1. I know, Courtney, isn't that ironic for English teachers. I feel the same way!
