A New Job. Red Cups. And A Holiday Weekend.

I think the best part of this post title is I got a job! I cannot tell you how excited I am to be among people and working again. I'm back in the school setting on Monday. Can't wait.

A big Thank You!! to Starbucks for giving the people what they want :) Holiday red cups.My first drink of the season: Caramel Brûlée Latte. Did you indulge on debut day?

My To Read pile changed a little this week since libraries have due dates. #annoying 
Right now, I'm reading Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys. Next up, Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

The kids had two days off from school this week. One on Election Day and second for Veteran's Day. I pulled the family card and took the kids exploring. Tuesday we found yummy decadent crepes and shopping. 

America elected a new president on Election Day.
(I did not see that coming.)

Thursday was the Marine Corps 241st birthday. We usually celebrate with a birthday ball when the Marine is stateside.  Deployment is the off years when we just look at old pictures.

That boy sure has a lot of bling, doesn't he? 

Today is Friday, which is Veteran's Day. Thank you to all who serve or have served to protect our freedoms! We sure miss our service member today :( Shout out to these 3 kiddos who make their own sacrifices to support their dad and our country. They handle it pretty well!

Wishing you a great weekend!


  1. Congrats on the job!! What will you be doing?
    And the new cups are adorable this year.
    Dark Matter is on my TBR list but sci-fi-ish stuff is hit or miss with me so I can't decide.

  2. You couldn't stay away!! Text me the details!! And congrats ����

  3. Congrats on a new job! Caramel Brulee Lattes are my favorite! Even better than the PSL!

    I was just thinking this week how election day should be a national holiday. Then everyone could vote at any point and kids would be taught the importance of the day from a young age. (Even though folks vote early all the time now...)

  4. Yay congrats on the job!! I am so happy for you.

  5. YAY!!
    Also yay for the red cups. Those green cups were so ugly!

  6. Congrats on the new job, that is awesome! I didn't get a Starbucks red cup yet, but I will definitely be getting one this week!

  7. Congratulations on a new job! God bless you and your family (and especially your husband) for the sacrifices you've made for years in service to our country. And I love the new red cups :)
