I am so glad it's Friday! For some reason, yesterday kept feeling like Friday, and it was always such a let down to remember that it was only Thursday. But Friday is here!
Join me as I list some of my FAVORITES for today!
For those of you who are new to reading my blog, I teach 7th grade English. As a teacher, Fridays are the only days we're allowed to wear blue jeans to school. Naturally, Friday is a favorite for all teachers but also because we get to break out our blue jeans and be comfortable for the day! What would be even better would be Yoga Pant Mondays :)
Okay this may not be a favorite, but it really made me laugh. I was driving on the interstate the other day and got behind a trailer full of fully grown pigs. I've never been behind a trailer of pigs--usually cows or chicken. So while I was behind these pigs, I had to take a picture because I thought, in a weird kind of way, they were kind of cute! Then as I went to pass the pigs, I realized that they were most likely going to be slaughtered and that they had come from Skinner Farms--how ironic and sad!! I immediately had to call my husband and tell him the irony of the name.
Yesterday, Emily and I shared some of our favorite fall fashion looks with y'all and this outfit seemed to be everyone's favorite! It's from JCrew and one of the reasons I love JCrew is not only because of their clothes, but because they give a teacher discount!! 15% off! I love it when stores do that, and I wish Anthropologie would do that too!
Reading Shay's blog post yesterday was a major favorite! When I first saw this title, I immediately thought she was pregnant! Then after reading the beginning, I realized that she and her family are on their way to China to adopt another baby girl. How wonderful! I loved that she wrote about being obedient to God's calling for her and Andrew's lives. Yes, it would be so much easier for them to wait a few more years after Ashby had grown up a little or after all of their kids had gotten older, but God doesn't call us to the easy and comfortable. She and her husband have been blessed with the ability to adopt another child, and how lucky is that child to be finally getting a family?! I cannot wait to read along with her adoption updates for this little girl!
It's New York Fashion Week and I love reading articles about it and seeing pictures pretending that I'm there and not teaching junior high ;) I read this article about Kanye West's Yeezy Season 4 release and it definitely was the strangest release. I hope all of the models got paid good money to stand in the heat for 2 hours!
