Life Catch Up!

I have been a really bad blogger lately but I do have an excuse! I have been so busy with end of the school year stuff including....
  • Report Cards
  • Assessments
  • Individualized Education Plan Meetings
  • Planning and putting on an end of the year program for parents
  • Cleaning and organizing EVERYTHING in my classroom
  • Doing inventory in my classroom
BORING, I know.

But, I have completed my first year of teaching successfully.  And sometime next week, I am going back to school to sign my contract for next year.

I have also decided that I am going to get my Masters of Science in Instruction and Curriculum.  I am getting it from the University of Tennessee at Martin that has this wonderful program for teachers who are working full time.  So I have to STUDY FOR MY GRE! DUH, DUH, DUHHHH.  I am really scared about taking it. Seriously.

With all of this not so fun stuff, I have also been busy doing fun stuff!  I was so lucky to get to go to the Miranda Lambert concert in Nashville a couple of weekends ago.  It was the best concert I have ever been to.  I love Miranda and everything she stands for.  She was amazing live.  And the best part- her super hot husband, Blake Shelton, came out and they sang Honey Bee together.

Love her!

I also had an awesome Memorial Day weekend.  All of my friends and sorority sisters were able to meet up at Norris Lake at my friend Brandi's lake house. There was some amazing food, lots of drinks, and tons of time on the lake. They also surprised me and Chelsea with some belated birthday cupcakes that were DELICIOUS! I love my friends and I am so thankful we were all able to get together.

Karaoke super stars.
Why are we so pretty?

I hope this has caught you up a little on my crazy life! Now school is out and I am back to the blogging world!  Happy summer, y'all!
