lately // 9.15.14

Oh lordy. For those of you that are in college or have teaching jobs, are you in the weeds yet? Let’s just say my to-do list is ten miles long and growing. Last week I took up two seats on the bus because I had three tote bags and a purse. Crazy. Balance balance balance is my mantra.

Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:

Aspiring to // make the most glorious macarons this town has ever seen.

Preparing for // a 16 hour/week practicum in which I get to teach lessons and do research on the teaching & learning process. PS. Speaking of teaching, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this teacher’s laid-back-yet-chic style.

Listening to // acoustic Bon Jovi because it’s in the 5-CD changer at work. It’s a hoot.

Thinking that // I may very well dress up as Daisy Buchannan for Halloween, after reading October’s pick for the ABM book club!

Hoping that // the Fall weather lingers a while. I’ve heard rumors of a blizzard of a winter. I’ll have to take a peek at the Farmer’s Almanac to confirm.

Reading // a stack of old magazines that I bought but never browsed. And also getting very excited for this to get up and running…

Wanting to // blog more often but trying SO hard to just stick with a consistent, sustainable schedule! I keep referencing this podcast by Elise Blaha Cripe on editorial calendars.

Dreading // the Missouri winter. I really like this jacket but there’s no way that’ll work in a snowstorm.

Browsing // new-to-me blogs and revisiting old blogs. Have any suggestions for me?

Pinteresting // anything to do with fall fashion and pumpkin recipes. Check out my Wardrobe and Recipe boards!

Thinking about // trying Crossfit. Should I? Shouldn’t I? If I do I might reward myself with these pieces from Albion: a plush pullover & some long leggings. But first I’ll have to pull some doubles at work so I don’t break the bank!

What have you been up to lately? –Catherine
