I know it's just yarn, but isn't the package from @loveknittingcom so cute!? I'm obsessed with these tiny 10g rolls of yarn. And yes, those are candies inside ❤️ #crochet #grandmaatheart
So, being sick, I had tons of time to go through some old pictures on my phone today... And I came across this beauty... Of me (and my fat rolls) and my favorite skirt... 🙃

This skirt is so sentimental for me!!! I wore it for our engagment pictures, and every time I wear it I still feel so special and have such wonderful memories of us just getting to act like two crazy kids in love and having that documented! Seriously, engagement pictures are the best. No stress of the wedding, no family wrangling, just pure bliss! 💗💗 I also remember last fall, when this skirt wouldn't zip. I had to WORK to get that zipper up as far as it would go and it was digging into my side all day... I remember Snapchatting this picture to my sister and friends "when your fave skirt doesn't fit but you wear it anyways!!" On the outside I was 😂😂. But on the inside it was 😭😭😭😭. But I still rationalized it to myself. "You were still in college when you took those pictures, you'll never be that thin again, this is just what getting older looks like: your metabolism catches up to you, you're married a few years, you put on a few pounds, you stop buying 2's and Smalls and start buying 6s, 8s, and Mediums." Whatever. That's life.
WRONG!! After I saw this picture, I HAD to go dig up the that skirt and try it on. And it FITS! With ROOM!! 🎉

So do I look like I did in college? Heck no! In fact, I look better! 🔥💃🏻💁🏼 that's what doing simple but effective workouts and having a healthy relationship with food will do for you! (and not simply relying on a 21 year old metabolism to allow you to eat pizza rolls and queso till you feel sick!) I love doing what I do, and helping other people do the same! Let me know how I can help you! (Also including some of those engagment pics because I love them and want to take more! 😂😂)

Waiting for meds... What I thought were allergies kept getting worse and worse so I went to a clinic today and was diagnosed with STREP! How fun. 😭😭😭 🙏🏻🤞🏻🙏🏻Praying I didn't infect anyone this weekend and that I feel better soon enough to get back to school ASAP! I already feel so bad that I missed a day last week! I miss my kiddos!!!

So happy to be here in beautiful Kerrville to celebrate Joshua Durham and Lindsay Roe's wedding!! Also very cool that Simon officiated his first wedding!
I have zero voice left at this point, but that's not gonna stop me from celebrating this wedding! I've known Lindsay since we were born, and I think she chose a great guy!
Time to party!!! 🎉

I've been hearing that allergies are terrible in South/Central Texas this year... And I woke up today with the most terrible sore throat and I definitely feel like I've been smacked in the face. 😫😰 Just stocked up, so hopefully I can get some relief!! Any other suggestions??

Somehow, my morning workout feels so much sweeter when I would usually be at work! 😳🙈😜 I'm taking my first PERSONAL DAY ever in my ✋🏼5✋🏼 YEARS of teaching (band directors, you know!!!) today to travel and attend my oldest friend's wedding (literally known her since birth!) 👶🏻👶🏼 We've got quite a drive ahead of us to be there in time for the rehearsal today, so I know before I sit in a car for hours, I best do something GOOD for me!! 💪🏼 Happy Friday everyone!!! (And my superfoods taste even better today too - something is just so tasty about "skipping" work 😜)

First beginner band concert of the year!!! ✅🙌🏼😍✅ Our band babies were so excited and nervous and they did SO well (clarinet squeaks at a minimum!!! 🙌🏼😜) and I can't wait to see what all they learn and accomplish this year, we have a great group of kids!
Even though I'm on a post-concert high, I'm still totally pooped! I tried to use my school keys to unlock the apartment when I got home... 😂 that's what 13 hour days do to your brain!
Time to relax on the couch, get some kitty cuddles, and start the weekend fresh tomorrow! (Yes, my weekend starts tomorrow - I'm taking my first personal day EVER to go to my first friend EVER's wedding!!!)

Maybe one day I'll finish this blanket. I've only been working on it for almost 3 years now. #grandmaatheart
Anyone else have this situation?? Tell me I'm not alone.... 🙋🏼 Clean laundry piling up, but I can't fit it in drawers because they are such a mess... 😳😳😳
It just keeps compounding.... Ahh! I know I need to organize my drawers, but who has time for that??? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I'm usually a super-organized, type-A person, I don't know how it got this bad... 🙈🙈 Send help!!

Holy sweat session out on the lanai. 💦
.
I love lanais --- it reminds me of the Golden Girls 😆 I swear in a 60 year old Dorothy stuck in a 27 year old Jersey girl. Lol 👵#grandmaatheart
.
Anyway needed to get my work out in before we walked the beach.
.
Quick 25 min work out with my spirit animal 🦄 trainer. I love this guy, no matter what is going on this guy can get me up and motivated. Dripping in sweat and ready for my day on the beach.
.
Work outs don't have to be crazy long to be effective. Yes I'm on vacation but I can take 25 mins out to focus on me. Yes it's totally worth it👍
