Currently September!

It's been a crazy week, and I'm glad I finally have the chance to update my blog!  I'm linking up with Farley for Currently September.

Listening: I love the Music Choice channels, especially the música urbana.  I always find new songs I need to buy after a little while on that channel!
Loving: I love shopping at thrift stores!  I've recently lost a lot of weight (and still going...), so I've run out of things to wear, especially to work.  Since I'm still losing weight, it feels wasteful to me to spend a lot of money on clothing that I would only be wearing for a short amount of time.  Enter thrift stores!  I love going to Goodwill, but the ones around me have pretty awful selection, so I usually drive out to Austin for Goodwill.  This morning I went by a thrift store near me (Texas Thrift, one of my faves!) for their Labor Day sale, 50% off everything!  I picked up 6 work shirts and 2 blazers for a grand total of $21.54 including tax!
Thinking: Tomorrow night is our Open House.  I like that we have it after school has started, so when I meet parents, I already know their child.  I'm both nervous and excited to meet some parents tomorrow night!
Wanting: This last week back has definitely reminded me of how important comfortable shoes are!  It's been really hard to find comfy shoes that are actually cute, so if anyone has any suggestions, please share!
Needing: I still haven't finished my powerpoint for tomorrow night, so that's next on my list...
Love Myself: I need to ramp up my walking.  Last week I walked 26 miles, and my goal is to hit 30 each week.  I have a fitbit, and I love how easy it makes keeping track of my daily progress.  I also want to look more "put-together" everyday.  I did really well these last two weeks, and I want to keep that momentum!  Finally, I want to try to cook more.  I don't eat out  much, but I don't do much real cooking either.  It's time to start using some of those awesome recipe pins I've been hoarding!

I have really enjoyed meeting all of my new students this last week.  The best part of my week was playing I have Who has with Spanish greetings and seeing how excited and motivated they were, encouraging each other and cheering when they heard their time.  It was one of the highlights of my career!  I am so excited for what this year will bring!

How did your week go?

    1. Thanks, Mary! I love thrifting because I can fulfill that urge to shop, but still stay well within my budget!
