1. I'm obsessed with my new blog design. Aubrey from The Kinch Life Designs is the designer. She is great to work with. I sent her a pinterest board I had created. I wanted a new up-to-date design. I felt my previous one was a little overplayed with the chevron and a little outdated. Aubrey did a fabulous job at capturing exactly what I wanted: clean, updated, girly, and a little sparkle. Not to mention, she threw in some ombre. You can really tell on the header. I just love it, and I hope you do too! :)
2. I was chosen in a little giveaway post for a credit to Prep Obsessed's sale the night I commented. I ended up using it on this little seersucker clutch that included monogramming. If you're not a fan, I definitely suggest you become one. Prep Obsessed is a flash sale site that often has items such as throw pillows, jewelry, clutches, tumblers, Lilly Pulitzer items, etc. Nina and Corey, P.O.'s owners, are the sweetest girls and post the cutest stuff.
3. I am getting this done today. During the summer, I don't go a lot of places, so I try not to dry my hair very much. In return, it makes my hair grow pretty fast. My roots are jank, and this is LONG overdue! :/
5. I am very scared and overwhelming about teaching U.S. history. I've never taught history before, and it is quite different than teaching grammar. I am so overwhelmed that I keep opening my teacher edition and staring at it aimlessly and slamming it shut. I think I just need to take the next few days and enjoy them and not worry about it. If you're a middle school history teacher, feel free to hit me up with suggestions, powerpoints, lesson plans, ANYTHING. I am starting from scratch and feel like a brand new teacher all over again.
