Almost Laughable

Almost laughable.  That’s how I’d describe last week.  Mostly because I spent the Summer trying to organize a decent blogging schedule, figuring out what I need to do and how I need to do it.  I even had some crock pot meals prepped and ready to go in anticipation of my return to work.  And then the bottom fell out.  Seriously every thing that could go wrong seemed to and at one point I thought no one would even believe all of this is happening, it’s almost laughable.  You name it, it happened here. Fortunately this is a new week and I know it will be better than the last. Here’s to new beginnings!

Today is the first day of school.  For me that means lots of excitement on our campus.  We’ll have parents in and out of our building all week.  Pictures will be snapped left and right and everyone will try to look their best.  Myself included.  Most likely I will not sit down until somewhere around 11:30 so I chose something comfortable and cool enough for all the running around I’ll be doing.  I have morning duty in our kindergarten hallway, one hour of lunch duty, and then kindergarten car duty.  Between those duties I’ll be calming crying and anxious children and then making sure all of our students are tagged properly with how they’ll go home.  Our administrative teams shares these duties so I am not the only one who will be completely wiped out by the end of the day!

Here’s what I chose for my first day:

Even though this Lilly Pulitzer dress is a cover up it’s long enough to wear as a casual dress. It’s also cool enough and super comfortable.

We took these photos a few weeks ago and I chose to wear my new wedges but I will wear my flat sandals to school with this dress. I think the heels make it just a little too short.

The color pink just makes me happy so whenever I can I wear it! I don’t mind at all that this dress screams Summer because it still is! We’re all hot, sweaty messes by the end of the day with our temps in the mid 90’s.

I’ll still be wearing Summer clothes for awhile to work. It’s just too hot not to. The best part of that means I can take advantage of all of the end of season sales! Labor Day is right around the corner and I plan on taking full advantage of all the great deals that will be offered, how about you? I know many of my readers live in warm weather states just like me. Shoppers unite! This is our time!

The start of a new school year, the start of a new week. I’m ready for some new beginnings and the promise that comes with all of those possibilities. Life is never without obstacles but it’s how we maneuver those obstacles that dictates our outcome. For me, I dig deep, I pray, I ask for help, I laugh when I face adversity. It’s what keeps me going, how about you?

Have a fabulous week and I’ll see you back here on Wednesday friends!
