Linking up with Andrea, etc. for everyones’ favorite link up!
I had another busy, but good week. Here are some faves from my camera roll with a bit of a re-cap of the week.
How was yours? I hope it was great! October sure went by too quickly for me. I love November, but I kinda dread the winter that comes after the holidays.
I usually get my hair highlighted every 8ish weeks on a Saturday morning. I love my stylist, Laura. This time I had to do a Tuesday afternoon after school and a meeting.
Before (See all those dark roots?):
I still only have a few grey hairs, thankfully.
I received Pioneer Woman Christmas already!
Erica (my co-worker and lunch partner) made a fabulous stir fry meal this week.
I made sweet potato lasagna again!
I found this really motivating!
I forgot to tell you during my Hello Monday post that we went to a breast cancer fundraiser on Sunday where they catapult pumpkins into the river.
These are the targets.
It was a nice afternoon and we got to see some people, too!
I bought a charcuterie board on a lazy Susan! I found it at World Market and have been wanting one for forever! But, DO NOT spin it too fast. I spun it like I was on Wheel of Fortune the first time. Lesson learned.
Erica also made a stuffed acorn squash this week. She made homemade chicken sausage, rice, mushrooms, spices, and a bit of cheese. It was out of this world – restaurant quality. I’m starting to think I’m getting the better end of this lunch deal!
This is my sweet Spanish Club! I guess it’s not really mine but I am leading it this year. These kids are willing to hang out after school because they love Spanish? We met outside again because it is just safer and easier with Covid. Also, we got so lucky on the weather!
We have a student who is a real recording artist already. His family is from Puerto Rico. He agreed to sing 3 songs in Spanish for our club! It was so fun and the kids danced and showed him the love.
Then, one of our Spanish teachers did a live guacamole demo and we ate the fruits of his labor.
All the meetings I had last week did nothing to directly impact the kids. THIS is what directly impacts the kids!
Mason texted to see if I wanted to hang out and get a late lunch/early dinner after school. I kinda have a loose policy to always say YES when it comes to this kinda stuff!
Mason is a foodie and didn’t care where we went. I had talked and talked about Red Hog and finally got to show him. I ordered a ginger based mocktail for him and a really spicy cocktail for me.
Um… this ended up being my dinner. Their fries and curry mayo are good! I ate way too many so that was it for me for the rest of the day.
Mason ordered a Cuban sandwich and had lots left to take back.
Jack probably wouldn’t text me like this but he did a couple of times last year. Also, Jack is super busy this semester. I would like to hang with Jack soon and maybe I will ask him!
Leave me your highlight in the comments and thanks for reading!
