The Sunday Scoop - May 24, 2015

Since we don't have school tomorrow, I almost forgot that it was time to put my Sunday Scoop up! Wow! I hope you're all enjoying a fantastic Memorial Day weekend!  I know that I can't complain! My mom came into town last night and we got to spend some quality time together before her flight out to Hawaii this morning! I love when I get to visit my mom! I also redecorated and rearranged my apartment and I am loving the new setup!

That's my Mom on the couch!  ;)

I also found some great new flowers for my apartment and I love them! I got the orchid that's on the dining room table in the pictures above, a new calla lily for my deck and a new hanging basket for the porch! This summer, Cory and I are going to be purchasing a new dining room set and I can't wait!!

Anyway, let's get to the purpose of this post....

Have to Do

I really bit off more than I could chew when I decided to take on TWO books for a book series for my blogs! I have been struggling to get it up and running but I am hopeful that between this evening/tomorrow that I will be able to get at least the next week's worth of posts up! I really wanted to kick of the series for both books next week and I can still hit that deadline if I get cranking! They're great books and I am excited to share both of them with you!!

Our print shop deadline to have stuff in August for next school year is Tuesday. Yes, the day after this lovely holiday weekend! That means, of course, that I'm struggling to put those final touches on some things to have them in the fall. I have to finish getting this math written response journal together and then I should be mostly set for least all of the big stuff! I feel so good knowing that I'll just have little things to run off between now and then!

Now let's talk about working out! I picked up the PiYo series from Beachbody and I have been obsessing over it! If you've read my blog for a while then you know that I am a major yoga lover. I also love strength training. This is such a lovely little mix of the two and since the workouts are only ~30 minutes (with most being 25 min.), there really aren't any excuses NOT to do it! I've already lost 7.4 pounds in two weeks since I started PiYo and changed up my meal plan and I am feeling amazing! I have a review coming soon on my personal blog of Fabletics workout apparel and I can't wait to show you what I got!

Hope to Do

There HAS to be some relaxation time in this holiday weekend! I've been so busy with cleaning, rearranging, redecorating, taking my mom to the airport, appointments, prepping stuff for printing next year, end of the year classroom rewards, end of the year volunteer thank you gifts, etc. I really hope that I can just take some time to relax, read out on my deck and enjoy some time to myself!!

Happy to Do

Today is my niece's first birthday party and I am so excited for that. She's so adorable! I can't believe she is already one!



Thanks for making it to the end! Please leave a comment so we can connect!!


  1. Your apartment looks so great- I LOVE the anchor! I'm s-l-o-w-l-y setting into mine, and I'm working on a nautical theme in my bedroom!

    1. If you live near a Joann's, you have to go there! They have tons of nautical themed stuff on clearance! I was super excited when I found it since I've been looking for that as my theme.

  2. Your apartment is so cute! And your mother looks about 25! Wow! If I had my way I would have my whole house looking like a beach house on vacation. I love that look!

    1. Thank you!! And yes, my mom has some amazing genes. I hope that I look that young when I'm her age.

  3. Your apartment looks great! I hope you got some time to relax. I JUST got my kids to bed after an all-day family picnic. Time to sleep! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    1. Thank you so much! I didn't get much time to relax yesterday BUT I am all about it today! I'm going to go get a mani/pedi and chill for the day!

  4. Wow looking great! Your niece is super cute! My sister is in Oregon too - I can't wait for her to graduate and finally come home. She's a senior at OSU. Nearly!

    Have a great week!

    Learning to be awesome

    1. Thank you! I think she's so adorable but, of course, I am very biased. OSU is a great school! I hope that she has enjoyed it there!
