Burnt Out!

This post has nothing to do with sewing.  I've just been feeling so overwhelmed and burnt out with school requirements of this intense one yr program  and family responsibilities.  Worse still, I've had absolutely no time to sew one stitch.  I have pants that I need to shorten in order to be able to wear them to my internship each week that are still sitting in my alterations pile.

My mother sent me this video and it has me missing my family so badly!!! It's so cold and yucky here.  Boohoo. Just having a little pitty party over here.


Miss you guys!  Wish me luck!

Let's Try This Again...

I miss, miss, miss you guys! I also miss being able to sew, but so much has happened since I last posted.

I passed all 5 **intense** summer classes with straight A's!!!!! I'm so proud of myself, it was so challenging! I now go on to the next phase of this one year master's program in teaching and start my Teacher Interning tomorrow, Monday, Aug 22nd. I will be in classes with my mentor teacher for 5 days to help prepare the classroom for the first day of school, which starts on Aug 29th. I will then be in the class for the first 5 days of school, in addition to taking 3 more classes and an intern class for 2.5 hrs in the evening.

I'm not sure how I will get my children to their activities, help with homework, cook, clean and give my husband some attention, but the Lord will make a way, as he did over this summer!  I'm not sure how I ended up here, because, no where was teaching in my plans, but when you ask the Lord to take over and give him complete control, you get what you ask for! I feel at peace with my decision and very excited, but very nervous.

I am picking up the trenchcoat that I started sometime last Spring and I'll finish that as my first project heading into Fall, when I know I will definitely get some good use out of it.

I still plan to "kopy" celeb looks, but I will focus on classroom appropriate attire, because I definitely don't want to be the teacher who always wears jeans or looks shabby. I want to keep an aire of style about myself in the classroom!

I can't wait to have my own classroom and decorate it, and share all my trials and tribulations along the way of getting there. Hopefully, I can find time to post some cute accessories and projects for my grandbaby, my younger two kids, and of course me!

I really  need to add some staple pieces now, like a white button up shirt, denim shirt, some basic & simple dresses, casual pants etc....

This is going to be rough, as it already has been, but I really want to share how I get it all done with you guys!

Let's do this!

Hiatus Update!

OMG! How does time fly by so fast???? I am truly missing posting, but life has a way of taking over some times. 

I'm in the process of enrolling for classes fulltime this summer for the MA program in teaching that I was recently accepted into, which starts the end of this month.  It's an intense 1 yr program so I have been scurrying around trying to get things done, in addition to working pt and being mommy/wife fulltime.

I am hoping to have something to post by the middle of May, which is fast approaching, I know.  I would probably have it finished this weekend but I'm going away to see my mom & sister, also take part in a breast cancer walk on Mother's Day and then enjoy some much needed relaxation time, which will include massages, mani/pedis & facials! Not to mention some drink-drink!! I can't wait!!!!!

Have a Happy Mother's Day all you mommies out there, hopefully one without the kids!!

Bri Rocks 2 Strand Twists Like Malia Obama!

I love the flexibility I have in styling my daughter's hair. I love how healthy it is for her to be free of any chemicals on her delicate and developing scalp! I'm glad there are little girls out there her age, that are celebrities, for her to look up to, like Malia!  Here's how I do Bri's twists and what natural, homemade products I use!
