meal plan monday – week of january 21-27

Happy #mealplanmonday! 🙂 I realized just how spoiled I’ve been when I looked at my calendar this morning… I haven’t had students on a Monday since December 11th. Crazy! Of course, that made it easier to get these ready to post too, haha. This week is again short and sweet – enjoy! Monday – spaghetti […]

home chef meals – week of january 14-20

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! Mine has been a lot of fun, and is ending with a super lazy Sunday – thankfully I have minimal school work to do this weekend, so I was able to enjoy a quick trip out of town to the AHL Outdoor Classic […]

meal plan monday #1 and my go-to meals

Well, it’s 12:30pm and I’m finally doing something with myself today. I survived the first week of school (woohoo!), and I have some really great kids this year. I feel a lot better about myself as an educator than I did this time last year (I was nervous to return to the classroom after 4 […]


I’ve never been particularly good at taking care of myself. It has always been second nature for me to take care of other people and do everything I can to make them happy, but I’ve realized that in doing that, I have really neglected my own well being. I think there is definitely a happy […]
