Monday Moments

Hey, everyone! How was your week? I had a pretty good one! It was my first week off of working at the elementary school (yay for summers off!).

So I've been working at the elementary school for 6 years and so all those summers off I have wasted A LOT of time. I always think, hey, I have the whole summer! I can do a ton of stuff!
Then I mostly just sit around and do nothing. 
Last summer I hit my groove around August (we go back like 3 weeks into August). I determined that this time I would NOT waste my summer. So I'm bullet journaling and working off a 52 minutes on, 17 minutes off schedule. I LOVE it. I've accomplished most of my tasks and I feel like I've been pretty productive, even with taking two days last week where I decided to do absolutely nothing but lay around and read and watch Netflix.

As you may recall, last week it was my sweet Captain's birthday. For his birthday we went to Tucanos for dinner and Wonder Woman! I highly recommend it. It was just my style! I don't recall any swearing, plus no sex scenes, plus girl power??? Perfect! Go see it!

One of the things I'm working on this summer is practicing my hand lettering. I made this for my sister (she hasn't got it yet...), because we're only 13 months apart she was my best friend for a good long time. 

Last night we celebrated the Captain's birthday with our families! Mine in person and his through Facebook video messenger. It was so fun to have them all participate together! Plus, we definitely couldn't have eaten this whole cake by ourselves. It was actually a lot easier to make than I thought it would be. If you want the recipe, just hit me up!

Currently reading:

Something to take away:

"Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success."

-Pablo Picasso
