Do You Know What Today Is??

It’s Flag Day!

Admit it, you had no idea. I know I didn’t… at least until I got to work and heard one of the teachers talking about coloring flags. So I quickly grabbed a book of holiday songs and picked out some fun flag songs for the kids to sing in music.  I sure don’t want to miss out on ANY holidays! 😉

Let’s talk about yesterday for a second…

I’m thinking that I need to send out a huge thank you to Kelly from EatYourselfSkinny for the amazing banana bread recipe! I made Grandma’s Banana Bread yesterday using the verrrry ripe bananas I had, and it turned out amazing!

I immediately cut two small pieces off the ends of the loaf, spread a little almond butter on top, and dug in! SO GOOD!

And just when I though life couldn’t get any better than homemade (100 calorie!) banana bread, the UPS truck stopped by with a delivery….

HOLY GEEZ it was my Mizunos that I ordered on Monday!!! I wasn’t expecting them until Thursday (today) so that was a huge surprise!

Hello beautiful….

I didn’t waste any time trying them on, and they fit perfectly!

Too bad I had already gone on a run that morning or I would have tested them out right then and there!

A little while later, it was dinner time. I fixed the most random meal that included a bag of frozen veggies that I microwaved and an English muffin pizza.

Yes it’s weird, but when I’m just cooking for myself, I have the right to eat whatever I want! 🙂

The rest of the evening was spent at church followed by choir practice.

Now that I’ve gotten yesterday out of the way, let’s get back to today!


I couldn’t resist having another slice of banana bread with a spread of almond butter and also a vanilla Chobani for some protein. (16 grams!)


Jeans: Target (these are actually my favorite pair); Top: A little boutique called Impulse; Sweater: TJ Mazz Necklace: Another boutique called Nellie Mae; Shoes: Steve Madden (same from Tuesday)

Here’s a closer shot of the top half of my outfit.

Yes, this is in my classroom. 😉


Breakfast actually kept me full for a really long time (must’ve been the protein!), but I did eventually have a mid-morning snack of baby carrots around 10:00.


I loved yesterday’s sandwich so much, that I recreated it with turkey instead of egg! String cheese and grapes on the side.


This will be happening as soon as my lunch digests! I’ve got 3 miles on the agenda today and can’t wait to run them in my new shoes!!! 🙂

Plans for the Day

Eat more banana bread Clean the house because it’s gotten a little OOC. But later tonight, I’ll hopefully be going to see a show at the local theater.If not tonight, then tomorrow. I’ve also got to get a lot of laundry done so I can start packing for the beach trip next week with our youth group! 🙂 I’m pretty excited about this trip and can’t wait to see what God’s going to do with these kids.
