Monday Musings...Back from Break!

Welcome back to another edition of Monday Musings! 
A late night post about everyone's least favorite day of the week!!

WAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!  LOL...just kidding!!  Well half kidding anyway!

Actually a little kindergartener really came in kicking and screaming today....I wanted to tell him that I felt the same way!

 It's never easy waking up on the Monday after a week off!  And this break was one for the books!!  It felt more like Easter Break than Winter Break!  The temps were comfortable and the sun was shining! I was even able to get to the beach!!

And after gathering all the receipts from the week, I'm fairly certain I spent enough money, that I could've went on a trip!  Oops!!

I must have wanted to come back to school today though, because I was up at 4 a.m.  Either that or my sugar high was wearing off.  My date to the Oscars? WINE!!I should've remembered that today was Monday and I was not actually attending the Oscars when I opened that bottle last night!

{Side note: How great was Justin Timberlake's opening?  HE WINS the night!!  And I couldn't stay up but have watched all the coverage of that HUGE mistake!}

But alas, Monday it is, so I woke up, brewed some coffee and got myself ready.  I will admit I am not LOVING my outfit today but got lots of compliments on it, so there's that.  And I left the house at 10 to 7....forgetting to put on eye as you can imagine I looked fabulous!  And today the Kindergarteners told me my hair was sticking up all over the place! (thank you static)...gotta love them!

The kids were kinda zoned out today too, so I guess everyone was in the same boat.  There is both an upside and a downside to that.

I'm so excited Read Across America Day is this week.  I love teaching Dr. Seuss and am excited about my lessons.  BUT I'm even more excited we get to dress down on Thursday!! Being a Teacher-Librarian, I pitched the idea that we wear graphic t's on Thursday to celebrate!  He agreed!  YAY! Thinking of wearing this one!!

So that's something to look forward to!

Mondays are one of my early days.  I got home at around 4:15.  I'm not quite sure how it happened but I blinked, it was six, the Peapod guy was here delivering my groceries, and it was time for dinner!!

And tonight I had one of my regulars...quesadillas!  I was too tired to actually cook for real.  My quesadilla maker is my fave!  I did however, switch it up a little with Green Salsa.  Jalapeno Hot Green Salsa!  Whew....I have a fire in my belly!   But damn if I didn't LOVE IT!!  Totally delish!!

Oh and how could I forget?!?  My Monday got real great, real quick after finding out that I won a Giveaway on Instagram!!  Woo Hoo!  How cute is this teacher notepad!  Totally perfect for me!!  I know it was a computer-generated win, but I'll keep thinking they liked my answer about how I loved my coffee best....with Rum Chata of course!!
Thanks @huskylovingteacher & @littlebirdiepapers  Go follow them on Instagram!!

Settled in now for a night of The Voice and reading.  Still trying to get through my second TBB Book club pick, All the Missing Girls.  But I don't know how far I'll get to night..I already feel my eyes closing as I'm typing!

I hope you all had a great Monday!  Thanks for stopping by to read my late night ramblings!!

And since this is a late night post, I just wanted to mention after reading so many of the blogs today, I'm keeping some of my favorite bloggers and their sweet friend Manda in my prayers tonight!


  1. I tried to watch The Voice but Gwen Stefanie is too gross for me LOLOLOLOLOLOL! Mondays suck break or no break LOL - I hope your Tuesday is fab!

  2. I'm so happy that The Voice is finally starting again. Love the show!

  3. So happy you had a good break! LOVE your polka dot Cardi!!

  4. I didn't even realize there was a new season of the voice starting! Carly Jo and I had so much fun watching last season together and I was excited my dvr was smart enough to start recording.

  5. Mondays after a vacation are the hardest. But you looked great :)!

  6. Kids say the darnedest things! I usually get some comment about how windy it must be outside as I walk into the building. You forgot your eye makeup, I forget to brush my hair. Oh, well. Nobody would recognize me if it was brushed. I cannot get over how early you get up. Bless your heart. Glad you got in some beach time over break. XO


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
