Running a Half Marathon

Hi There! Over the past few months I have mentioned a couple times that Dev and I are training to run the Charlotte Half Marathon and I have been getting a lot of questions from family and friends-- so I figured I'd share any information I have about running in case one of you is interested in possibly running one too!  These are the questions I most commonly get:

What I've Been Wearing to Work

Hi There! Anyone else out there hate those mornings when you have a closet full of clothes but can't seem to piece an outfit together for work? I love posts where other bloggers post their work appropriate outfits and I can use them as inspiration. I thought I'd share what I've been wearing in case I'm able to help any of you!

How We... Fall!

 Hi there! It is hard to imagine fall when the temperatures around here are still in the upper 80's and 90's, but we are all trying hard aren't we?? Since it still feels like summer, I have not decorated the house yet for fall, but I will tell you some of what I WILL be doing over the next few weeks and then I'll post some actual pics once it is all done. Grab yourself a cup of pumpkin spiced coffee and a cozy blanket and settle in to daydream about fall!

Organizing the Big Work Closet

Good Morning! Today's post is about one of my favorite things to do... organize. I don't know about you, but I feel SO MUCH BETTER when things are put away all neat and tidy and I know where everything is. Devin is very much the opposite of this (opposites attract??) so sometimes living with someone who doesn't appreciate my neurotic tendencies love for organization can be hard.

This upcoming school year will be my second year as the part time STEM teacher at my school. I will have to tell you the story of how this job fell into my lap one day, because it was one of those moments when I could absolutely feel God smiling down on me and saying "I've been hearing your prayers and this is my answer". I still get chills thinking about it. Anyway, last year I accepted the job literally the week before school started and was not able to get in and organize the science closet that was now mine. Throughout the year I made a small attempt here and there to alphabetize the supplies in order to make them easier to find, but other people have access to this closet too and were not putting things back in the right place. I gave up trying until I figured I would really have some time to make it perfect. This is what this closet looked like before I tackled it this summer:

 As you can see, you can't even walk in here without having to pull stuff out of your way.
