Matchbox Twenty and IKEA

Back to school season is upon us.  

I've been very busy the past couple of weeks getting my room ready and attending workshops.  I will be coteaching this year which means I will have another teacher in my classroom with me.  I'll admit I was a little anxious about that at first, but I LOVE my coteacher.  She has lots of experience and is so sweet.  Plus we seem to have a lot in common.  I have a feeling I'm going to learn a lot from her.  

Open House

Andrew and I were able to sneak away yesterday afternoon for a night in Southhaven, Mississippi for a concert.

But not before grabbing dinner at one of our favorite places.

We saw Matchbox Twenty and let me just say it was best concert we've been to in a long time.  GREAT show.

This morning we drove over to Memphis so that I could go to IKEA.  I've been wanting to go ever since they opened the Memphis store.

I found the things I wanted for my classroom along with a few other fun things.

I could have stayed in there all day but we had to get home to pick up Liberty & Lincoln from the kennel.  According to their report card they had a good time.

We all the perfect little get away before school starts.  


  1. The 8th day of Navaratri is committed to Maa Mahagauri, the 8th Avtar of Maa Durga. The legend has it that Maa Mahagauri freed the world from insidious powers. She has three eyes and four hands. Her lower right hand holds a trishul and the upper right hand is in the mudra of mollifying dread. While her lower left hand is in a posture of conceding aids to Her aficionados and she is holding a damaru in Her upper left hand.
