life lately :: schools out for summer!

Technically my last day with students was Friday, and I still have three teacher work days this week.  My brain is in summer mode though!  D has been traveling like crazy, so I've spent most of June by my lonesome.  Trust me though, I've been keeping busy!

 [Wine + paint party for a co-worker // ootd for the party]

 [Trying this recipe]

 [Sushi date with D before he left me for a week]

 [I've been spending lots of time out on the porch with beer + blogs]

 [She's obsessed with me in the mornings]

 [They're HUGE!  Also Mr. Bojangles {the white Silkie} is holding back the crew from getting in the coop at night.  Super annoying.]

[Blood orange margarita at Jibarra // ootd for drinks with a friend]

Now this week will be spent packing and cleaning before heading to Georgia on Friday or Saturday and then Cali bound next Monday!

Linking up with Alli and Haley this week!

Three more days, you've got this! Then it's all beer & California & lazy days watching the chickens. Whats up with Mr. Bo Jangle's hairy feet anyways? Is that a normal chicken thing?

Danielle said...

wooHOOOO!!! Sometimes it's hard to say goodbye to your kids, and sometimes you can't wait to see them go! (at least, that has been my observation from teaching privately). Enjoy summer- you're almost there!
Love Mr. Bojangles. Still think you should name another one Popeyes to go along with her.

I have been wanting a white silkie! They are so adorable. Good luck getting through the last three days!


Jo said...

My God! Could you have taken a more tempting photo of that margarita? Now I'm just pissed that I don't have one right now.
I know the feeling of being left alone. My hubby is gone A LOT too. If we lived closer, we could go out for one of those margaritas.

Andrea said...

So excited to find your blog! Thanks for commenting on mine :) I am your newest follower. Only 3 more days - you've got this! Thanks for the wine suggestion, I am always up for trying new vino!

Because Shanna Said So said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! :) Love the link ups and finding new blogs! A group of us girls are doing a wine/painting party next month! Only three more days!!

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

k so you just made me think about all of these things that I had no clue I needed until now... such as CATS in the sink (aw!) and chickens running around and painting parties with wine- all SO fun! and holy cripes i want to try that recipe!

meghan said...

I really want to do one of those paint and drink classes. I got in on a fun day July 1 for Tampa bloggers where we're doing one of the painting classes (but I don't think there will be drinking because we're doing yoga after).

How are the chickens? Are they making eggs yet? I'm very chicken illiterate so maybe that's not supposed to happen yet...and I LOVE your striped dress! Where is it from? Super fun!

Hayley said...

Love that striped dress with yellow sandals! So cute! Thanks for linking up with Life Lately!!
