Weekend Update

I've been working as an instructional assistant at an elementary school for the past month. At first I didn't love it. Then I became tolerant of it. And this past week I actually began to enjoy my job. Of course it doesn't really pay my bills but I kind of don't want to leave it. On a really good day I start researching graduate teaching programs and looking at GRE practice books.

So there's that.


Jill has been especially cute lately. I've never met such a sweet pup. Terribly spoiled but totally sweet.

All sprawled out. This dog cracks me up.

If you follow any of my other online ventures you already know all about the double yolk eggs I received from two of my hens this week. If not, now you do. I collected them early in the week and then scrambled both for my dinner on Wednesday. I couldn't wait to crack those babies open and marvel at the oddity of it. Such a fun surprise!

Last weekend I had to have Cracker Barrel for breakfast. I don't eat there often and don't particularly love their lunch and dinner options but something about the entire experience of eating there for breakfast gives me such a rush of memories from my childhood. Trips to the country with my grandparents and general store items and those little games they have on the table. So weird. I was definitely craving some kind of nostalgia.

My little unabomber. I just want to squeeze that face.
My brother is too young to understand why I just called him the Unabomber.

Baking day! All thanks to Pinterest.
Peanut butter frosted brownies and pumpkin rolls. I have Pinterest to thank.

Congrats on the job! I think you would be an excellent teacher or counselor. :) Please let me know if you have any questions!

That pumpkin roll looks delish!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Savannah! I definitely might need to pick your brain on the subject as decision dates get closer. :)
