This Week (Instagram Style)


The last few days have included:

Decorating the bathroom for Christmas..........


Yes.  I said bathroom.

What!?!

*   *   *   *

Work shenanigans........


Leaving Consuelo the dinosaur in the doorway of an unsuspecting coworker is great fun.

You should try it.

*   *   *   *

A much needed manicure........


I just don't have the patience to do my own.

It always ends badly.

 *   *   *   *

 Adding a little Christmas to the special room.........


What you don't see is the pile of clothes on the bed.

I'm working on it.  Gosh!!!

*   *   *   *

 And enduring enjoying music in my classroom...........


We have outgrown our building, so music comes to us every week.

I know all the words to Shenandoah.

In fact, on a Saturday morning not so long ago, I woke up with that song playing over and over in my head.

I can't wait for the recorder unit to begin.

  1. Your bathroom decorations are perfect (how many of those bottle trees do you have?!). Your mani is so festive! And your ring is BEAUTIFUL (I'm sure you weren't looking for comments on it but it really is stunning) And the dinosaur is hilarious!

    IDK why I'm not following you on Instagrm, but I expect that to chance in 2.5 seconds...

  2. I love that you decorated the bathroom too. Your manicure looks great and you know I have that pillow with the chevron print. It adds such great punch to any neutral decor. Have a great weekend. Dawn suitcase vignettes

  3. RECORDERS???!!!!?!?!? Good luck... my teen just brought one home to learn to play a couple of songs for a Renaissance dinner/concert coming up. She practiced upstairs... and it was still too loud and shrill.
