A Walk In My Week

Another week of spring semester gone! At the time, this week felt like it was never going to end. However, looking back it actually went by pretty quickly. Let's talk a walk through this past week together!

The weekend:
Last weekend I finished coaching field hockey for the winter. I've had so much fun coaching two teams this season. The girls have renewed my love for the game and kept me laughing after a long day at school. Some of them wrote me sweet thank you notes and even gave me a gift card. I'll miss spending my Thursday nights and Saturdays with them!

I stayed at my parents house last weekend to watch my dog while they were away.  My mom knew I was coming home and bought one of my favorites for me (smoked salmon).  She picked up pre-made flatbread to eat it on, which was absolutely delicious! 

This weekend I was able to braid my hair in a fishtail for the first time since September.  Once I took the braid out, my hair had a nice soft wave to it. 

Mondays are consistently my longest day each week this semester.  I leave the house around 7am and don't get back until 8pm. After spending the morning at the school I'm student teaching at, I headed back to campus for my two lectures. During my first class, we walked around campus identifying the many rock types used to construct the buildings.  
(Nerd Alert: I thought it was actually pretty fun learning about the buildings and how important rocks are to the structures.) Luckily before class I was able to grab a coffee. On Mondays coffee is definitely my liquid nap! I then headed to my next course where we learned about our next assignment. The three hour class ended an hour early, which was a pleasant surprise.  I finished the day off by painting my nails and watching The Bachelor. 

Tuesday was much busier than usual this week.  This semester I spend all day on Tuesday student teaching. So far I'm loving being able to spend more time in the school than ever before! I stayed after to help my mentor prepare some things for the next day. I had some time to kill before class, so I browsed the local consignment shop and found a couple things I liked.  I finished the day off with another class. Since we were working on a group project, we got out early. 

I taught my first full lesson to a class. It felt great to be up in front of the classroom. After going to field, I headed back to campus for my science lab. Wednesday night I got cupcakes with a friend and dinner with two of my other friends. It was nice to finally relax! 

Hello weekend! I had several  meetings on campus, completed a project, went to the gym, and headed  home to see my family. I hangout with my mom and made yummy taco nachos. I love how my campus isn't far away, so I'm able to sneak away for a night to spend quality time with my family and dog. 

Next week my goal is to post five days a week. 

Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. You had a goal d week. Good ouch on getting five post for next week.

  2. Best of luck on your goal!

  3. Pretty pictures! Love the vest and the food pictures :)


  4. Love the vest and man I am starving and now don't know what I want. I was going to start south beach in the morning so my "last meal" needs to be epic

  5. One of these days I'll learn to do a fishtail braid. It'd be such a quick and easy hairdo for those crazy days.

  6. Sounds like you had a great week! I don't know how you manage school, coaching, AND blogging, but major kudos to you.
