Linking up with Farley for the first time ever! Par-tay!

We've been visiting my sweet grandparents this week. I was pumped to get a nice tan out in their pool, but it looks like the Big Man had other intentions for this trip. Summer storms have kept us inside almost everyday, but it's been nice to spend time just talking and hanging out.

Y'all, I could boast about Shelley's skillz everyday for the rest of my life. We just got some snippets of our wedding photos and they are MAGNIFICENT. Seriously, if you need a photographer for anything ever in the Austin area, get in contact with her. She is my main boo.

After some time at the farm, the farm and I are headed to Nashville. We're going to tour Vandy and hopefully go up to the Bobby Bones show for my birthday morning. Other than that, any suggestions for things to do? We lovelovelove country music and good food. (:

Y'all, we are doing some college visits with my sister and I am wildly jealous. I loved college, I love learning, I love school (maybe I picked the right profession...?) and I can't wait to go get my masters in a few years!

Lesson planning is going to be upon me quickly and I know it could take a while for a planner to get to me, so I need to pick soon-ish! 

I'm obviously not a long-time blogger, but my best advice is to be yourself! All of my favorite blogs are hilarious and enjoyable to read because they have distinct personality and voice. I try to be real and not stress about blogging. I mean, it's supposed to be fun, right?!


  1. It's totally supposed to be fun! I'm new to the blog-o-sphere too! I can't wait to see your next post!


  2. Hi Melissa,
    Thanks for stopping by. I understand your concern about picking a planner. It's taken me three years to find a format that's suitable for my lesson planning process. I tried a store-bought planner, a printable layout (where I wrote in my plans), and finally an editable Microsoft template. I discovered that typing up my plans worked best because I can make any boxes as big or small as I need. I love being able to personalize things. Hope this helps!
    Good luck!

    1. Thanks! That information is helpful- I guess I can just try something this year and the reflect on how I can improve for the next. (:
