Currently…School Edition

So I wasn’t going to post anything today (as has become sort of a thing for me….I don’t post on Wednesdays) but I’m at school and the kids are watching a movie (#goodteacheraward) and shockingly I’m all caught up on grades and lessons for the next two weeks so I figured I would write up a quick post for you.

Plus, I was reading Jenn from Going the Distance‘s blog and she did a currently post today so I’m kinda copying her…hope ya don’t mind Jenn! ūüôā

I Am Currently…..

Feeling kinda anxious. ¬†I had an interview at a school literally 4 minutes from my house. ¬†I timed it. ¬†And while I think it went amazing, they said they are interviewing about 5 other people. ¬†I’ll know one way or another if I got the job by Friday. ¬†So I have this really anxious/nervous feeling running through me.

Reading ¬†I’m about to start a new book called The Good Girl by Mary Kubica. ¬†Looks pretty intense.

Listening to The Secret Life of Walter Mitte. ¬†We’re using this movie to have the student identify the 5 Themes of Geography. ¬†It’s either this or worksheets…this is way more entertaining. ¬†And opens me up to write this blog post. ¬†Yes I know I’m a great example of a good teacher! ūüėČ

Drinking Cold coffee. ¬†It’s what I drink every morning on my way to school and from 1st-3rd period. ¬†Tasty. ¬†I will be switching to water soon.

Eating A Taco Cabana breakfast taco. ¬†Potato and Egg to be specific. Since it’s Teacher Appreciation Week my school has been showering us with food. ¬†Yesterday we had catered Mexican food in honor of Cinco De Mayo and Friday we get catered BBQ. ¬†Side note: ¬†I LOVE Taco Cabana. ¬†It is one of the reasons I’m glad to be living back in Texas

Watching My student watch the movie…..or sleep….or stare at the laps on their phones. ¬†They think I don’t see this and I totally do. ¬†Basically I’m watching them watch a movie.

Thinking about¬†My job interview, the summer, my bank account, what I’m going to eat for dinner, did I mention summer?

Loving My new shoes from Old Navy. ¬†As well as this dress from Old Navy. It is literally the perfect black dress for summer. ¬† It’s light weight, comfy and just the right length. ¬†I cannot wait to wear both items in Europe this summer. ¬†CANNOT WAIT!

Excited about So many things! Europe obviously and getting our hotel information for our trip, meeting my best friends new baby in a few weeks, our family reunion in July and the fact that there are only 20 days of school left.

Happy Hump Day friends! ūüôā

Tasty Tuesday: Salad Creations

For about the last month or two I have been completely obsessed with salads.

They have been my go-to dinner and lunch meals because they are SO easy to throw together and they taste amazing. ¬†I’ve been switching between two different types. ¬†The first, my version of a Southwest Chipotle Chicken Salad and the second, a salad that Jenny threw together one night. ¬†I call it the Raspberry and Walnut Chicken Salad.

I actually am kinda of obsessed with the Raspberry and Walnut Chicken salad and have decided to share the super easy recipe with all of you lovelies.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Choice of lettuce (I use a Garden mix)
Red Onion
Feta Cheese (I would probably not put feta in the salad again…it kinda over powered it for my taste.)
Tomatoes (not pictured cuz I forgot to put them in the picture)
Raspberry Vinaigrette (My fav is the Panera version but you can but you can use any brand)

The rest is as easy as throwing all the ingratiates into a bowl.  I like to layer all the extras on top of the lettuce and them toss it with the dressing before I eat it.

First layer: Lettuce and Chicken

Second Layer: Red onion, Craisins, and walnuts and feta cheese

Third layer: Tomatoes. ¬†My personal favorites are the Cherubs. ¬†Holy moly….I can eat these little babies like candy. ¬†Delicious.

Fourth Layer: Croutons and Raspberry dressing.


I never measure any of the ingredients. ¬†I just eye ball it based on how hungry I am. ¬†This salad is great a main course or could be served as an appetizer. ¬†This one I made could have fed two people but I may or may have eaten the whole thing myself. ¬†(Read: I did eat the whole thing myself and I’m not ashamed in the least.)

The other thing I love about this salad is how colorful it is! ¬†It’s almost too pretty to eat…..almost.

What’s your favorite salad toppings and dressings? ¬†Any recommendations for me? ¬†I’m a huge fan of trying new things on my salads!

Have a great Tuesday friends! ūüôā
