Just editing some manuscripts & eating carrots. I have an editorial assistantship over the summer for a literacy research magazine. I have never done any work like this before, but I'm really enjoying it! I think it will be so beneficial, especially as I continue to conduct my own research & publish it. It's nice to have experience with all sides of the process.
Lunch was a salmon/tilapia wrap again. These turned out super yummy! I also made a little plain Greek yogurt & ranch mixture to spread on the wraps. Mmm. I just love food.
I had planned on going to yoga after school, but had kind of a crummy day & just wanted to spend some time outside. So, one of my besties, Katie, & I met at Galloway. I rode an old bike that Jake got to plant in our front yard, haha! It's fun to ride & it has a basket - what more could a girl ask for?!
Ah, just what I needed! SUNSHINE! <3
Love this girl! It was so nice to just sit outside & relax.
Jake & Scottie were on a training ride, but they met us at Galloway when they finished. I managed to get a picture of Jake WHILE riding my bike. Big step for me. (I keep falling off bikes...).
Jake & I had lots of leftovers that we were trying to finish up...we ended up with quite the spread! We finished the rest of the french dip sliders - they were definitely a hit. We will make them again! We also finished up my leftovers from when we ate at Cesar's on Wednesday. Mmm. Then it was early to bed!
My girlfriend, Kayla, & I went to yoga SCULPT this morning. I'm so glad she joined me! Thanks, lady! It kicked my butt, that's for sure. I might run a couple easy miles after school, I haven't decided yet. My knee is feeling better!
My grandparents from Florida are in town - they're my Dad's parents. I am SO excited to see them later this evening. This picture is me & my sister with my Dad's parents & my Mom's Mom. We have some of the best grandparents in the world! I think we are going to Black Sheep for dinner. Mmmm Salt & Vinegar fries! <3 BUT before we meet them for dinner, we are going to a graduation party for one of our super good friends, Katey. She just graduated with her masters & we couldn't be more proud of her! She absolutely kicked butt & we can't wait to celebrate with her!!!
I thought this was appropriate to share as today is my LAST full day of teaching. This picture is from 5 years ago, when I met my very first class EVER. My first teaching job was in Hollister & I taught 5th grade. It's hard to believe this was 5 years ago...since then, I have taught 7th grade ELA, & been a reading specialist for 6th, 7th, & 8th grades. It's definitely bittersweet knowing this is my last full day with kiddos, but I'm excited to see what the future holds.
After dinner tonight, it's home & early to bed, like always. ; ) We both have long runs (26ish for Jake & 12-14 for me) starting at 4 am. I saw this graphic on Instagram & thought it applied perfectly. After we run, we are taking my grandparents out for breakfast! I'm excited & that's definitely motivation to get a good, long run in. I predict a nap sometime Saturday afternoon! We don't have any major plans for the weekend, which we are both excited about. We have had some crazy busy weeks & are ready for some much needed down time.
I hope your weekend is wonderful!!
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
