Hey There, Friday!

This week has been filled with so many sweet moments. Let's get to sharing! 

My birthday was on Wednesday and my class surprised me by singing "Happy Birthday" when I walked in that morning. It. Was. Precious. Hearing their little voices + the excitement they had all day! They also made the sweetest cards! Made this teacher/kid lovin' heart smile! Moments like those just make you melt!! I get sappy when I think about the school year being over because they're the sweetest cherubs. I'm sure come June, I might be saying something different though ;) #bringonsummer

I haven't talked about the graduate school process lately because there hasn't been a whole lot going on. Until about two weeks ago, when the acceptance rejection letters started coming in the mail. It's a difficult process and I somewhat expected it, but still doesn't feel any better. Wellll, Tuesday I got some hopeful news! While I was at lunch, scrolling through emails, I saw the subject line, "Appalachian State Admission Decision"....insert heart sinking. Too anxious to wait until the end of the day, I of course opened and started scrolling. I was WAITLISTED!!!! (insert: almost choking on my salad.) Getting waitlisted doesn't sound exciting at all, but it's far better than a rejection. Praise God!!!! Moving to North Carolina has been a dream of mine for a long time and I can't believe it could maybe come true!?! Excited to see how God's plan unfolds! I know I'll end up where I'm supposed to be- even though NC feels a lot like it. Still waiting to hear back from 5 schools--fingers crossed! Say a prayer for me, please!!

I went to a Pure Barre class once back in January 2015 to see what the hype was all about. After my first class, I was so sore- for like three days, but I genuinely loved the class and could see what the hype was all about! However, the classes are pricey, so I couldn't commit at the time. Fast-forward over the last few months, I really wanted to get back. But I was so intimidated. What's a girl to do? Well, when you get a birthday coupon for a free class, YOU GO! You face your fears and walk in the door. (Ok. easier said than done because I had to coach myself before going! Ha!) I never workout- and I chose to go on my birthday to workout...instead of going to dinner #whoami?  I loved it so much....that I'm going back tonight. And I. Can't. Wait!!! Shout out to the one month new member special!! (*not compensated at all- just sharing my excitement and love for PB). QUESTION FOR ALL PB/ HSM/YOGA/WORKOUT GALS: WHAT ARE THE BEST WORKOUT PANTS YOU RECOMMEND?! 

Aren't they just the best?! Bring on SPRING!!!

  3. My birthday was Wednesday too! And I used to be a teacher (before becoming a stay at home mom)! I hope you had a great birthday, and good luck with the grad school!

  4. Praise God for waitlisted, right?!! I hope you're not left waiting long!

    I loved The Best Yes. I should re-read it. =)
