A Day in the Life... of a Teacher {July Linky Party}

June's link-up was too much fun! Thanks for all the girls who linked up! I hope you join in this month, too! 

In the summer, I get up at about 8:00 and start my cup of coffee.
I started this morning out with my Monday Made-It blog post, which guides through how to make a pom-pom puff made out of tissue paper. 

Early morning trip to Walmart... just to try to avoid big crowds.
I just moved into a new apartment, which means I have no food and cleaning supplies, so I had to load up on that.
THEN, I found the cheapie aisle of Walmart's school supplies. Woo hoo! 

Home to unload all these groceries and find a new home for all of my new things!
And yes, that is a pumpkin spice candle and plug-in. I HAD TO!! 

This is my before/after hallway. I am still in the process of decorating and unpacking. 
I took half an hour this morning to hang my pictures and decor in my hallway! 

Relaxing lunch on the porch. 
The weather is unbelievably nice right now. It's July and it's low 70s. What is going on?? But, it makes for a perfect lunch on the porch. 

It is the end of July, meaning August's lesson plans need to get started. I laid out my binders, curriculum, calendars, and resource books to start planning! 

I decided to make my students some postcards to welcome them to my classroom! I'm so excited! 
I printed them off on cardstock, glued down my address labels, and hand-wrote the notes. My hands!! OUCH! 

Laundry and cleaning time! My first big clean of my new apartment. 

Of course, gym time! Always a good time to catch up on reading while doing my high intensity interval cardio! Then some weight training. I'm also trying to get a little more serious, so I started some new protein shakes! 

Poor Desirae! She was so sad this episode. 
Nails and girly shows! 

So excited to have this finished and ready for the back to school rush.
Check it out here:

  4. This is a cute linky! I'll have to remember to do this tomorrow!

    How do you like your protein powder? I have such a hard time finding one that I can actually stomach the taste of. So far Muscle Milk and Isoflex are the only two I like.

    1. I got that from Body Building and it is chocolate cake batter flavored. Mixed w/ milk.... tastes just like a milkshake!

      Can't wait to see your post!

  5. Fun linky! I did pretty well remembering pictures, but I didn't make them look as cute as yours!

  6. I love getting to see what other teachers do during the summer. I will say... you are a lot more productive than me!

  7. Where do you live?! I WISH it was 70s here- instead the index is like 105 :( I linked up already but will have my post finished tonight- too fun! I can't wait to see how everyone else spends the end of their summers!


  8. Hey Jessica! Linked up and how fun to see how we all "roll" in the summer! Your apt. looks so cute! It is never too late for pumpkin anything! I love "Fall" things! Can't wait for the season! Thanks for hosting!
