Just all smiles today!!!

Since working on my class Tuesday night, I have had the rest of the week off and I have been LOVING every single second of it. Its weird because when we first moved here and I didn't have a job, I just hated staying home and doing nothing but I think now since I actually have a job and worked for a couple months, I really enjoy it. There is no stress so I really can just lay back and relax. I don't think I have been this happy in a very long time. Things are finally falling into place and I love it! Not only that but it is finally starting to get pretty chilly which is just icing on top of the cake. To celebrate, I spent the day buying fun baking supplies and making chocolate chip cookies! Yum :)

So, since I have no classroom updates, I figured I would write a things-that-made-me-happy-today blog since that seems to be the theme of the day.

Fall scents that come from Bath and Body Works. I melt when I smell them all.... sigh :) You better believe that all my Fall candles were up and burnin' today!

Baking. I just LOVE baking.... I hate cooking but when it comes to baking I just light up! Pumpkin bread (my specialty) and spice muffins are next on my list. I probably wont be able to wait so I might be making them tomorrow! And since we will have an overload of sweets I am sure our neighbors will be getting a knock on their door!!!

Ok, so this didn't actually make me happy today since I refuse to watch it before November. BUT me realizing that the time is so close made me extremely giddy. Its a must watch AT LEAST 4 times between November and end of December! Movie perfection at its finest. Love, romance, and Christmas all in one movie?!?!? YES PLEASE!

All things Fall. Walking through stores and seeing the amazing colors, seeing all the great foods at Farmer's Markets and watching the leaves change at my apartment complex are all amazing smile-inducing things. 

Picking out the BEST pumpkin in a whole huge batch!!! The man at the booth probably thought I was insane today. You better believe that I got the two biggest and best pumpkins in the whole lot though! :)

HOCUS POCUS! Hands down, the BEST Halloween movie ever, ever, EVER made. Again, this didn't necessarily make me happy today but I saw that it is being aired Saturday. Do you realize how perfect that is?! Kyle and I will be carving our pumpkins that day and by the time the movie starts, I will have all the pumpkin seeds toasted so I can cuddle up, snack on them, and watch it! Oh I love this movie!

I think I might have to do more of these blogs! They are so fun :)

Anyhoo... expect more randomness because I don't actually start teaching until Tuesday (YAY!). Monday is going to be the longest day ever simply because I will be going through inservice and be SO anxious to have the classroom be MINE. Lets just hope the sub kept my room clean and organized!
