Five Thangs Friday #5

I. Am. Exhausted. Mentally. Physically. ALL OF IT! Work this week has been rough, but ya’ll, we made it! It is Friyay! So here’s my five favorites from this week!

#1. Meal prep!

Since we moved, I haven’t prepped my meals for the week which has led me to eating whatever leftovers I could find and some snacks for lunch. This past weekend, I finally prepped my meals and they were bomb diggity ya’ll! I had a based of sprouted ancient grains with some kale dressed in a tahini zucchini dressing! On top was some slow cooked pineapple chicken and roasted baby peppers. My tummy was so happy this week, and my mornings were less frantic! 10 out of 10, will prep again!

#2. Our new reading area

I’ve always liked the look of the Ikea Poang chair, but we didn’t have the space for it at our old place. In our new place, there’s a small room attached to the master bedroom that was screaming reading nook. So we made one! As you can see, we have his and hers bookshelves, as well as his and hers Poang chairs! (Side note: I attempted to help with the assembly of these chairs but I was extremely unsuccessful)

#3. Snail mail from sissy

I have a younger sister named Sandra who has a learning disability. We talk on the phone daily and I try to see her as often as possible, but when we can’t she’ll write me a letter! This is a letter I got from her this past week and it absolutely made my day. Apparently, we will be going into business together!

#4. Hands on math

This is a picture from my classroom today where a student was learning to add by himself. Moments like these melt my heart. I absolutely adore when a student is invested in their learning and trying their hardest. This kiddo here was able to complete his first independent addition problem today! Props to him ya’ll!

#5. Summer jobs!


Last but not least, I got my job offer for the summer in this week! I am excited to say that I will be working at Teach for America as a resource specialist this summer!

That’s all I have for you folks! This weekend is a busy one, with real estate training all day Saturday. I am hoping to get my booty in the gym Sunday, and do some epic meal planning and prepping! Hope you all have a grand ole weekend!
