Back to School!

Hello beautiful ladies! I have been so crazy busy running around like a chicken with it's head cut off! I've been taking care of a 6-week old, getting my classroom ready, moving, and trying to unpack. My life is a wonderfully chaotic. :) I can't believe we start school on Wednesday! Where in the world did the summer go?!? I am so not ready to go back yet...I feel like I didn't even get a summer with moving and having Luke! What a busy couple of months we've had!

I finally got my hair highlighted back to my normal blonde! It's a little blonder than normal, but I'll get used to it ;)

Anyways, I forgot to post my outfit last Sunday, which I loved! My husband took me to the mall for my birthday and got me a couple of new outfits that I felt pretty in! Feeling pretty is rather important when you are 6-weeks postpartum. My body is by no means pretty right now, but at least if I have pretty clothes on, I'll feel better! So he picked out this cute little black dress and a black and white maxi skirt with a gold top. Here they are! ;)

I am in the process of decorating my new classroom, and this is all I have done so far...I know I really need to get on the ball considering Open House is tomorrow night and I have a million things to do until then! :) Let's just say, I'm going to be very busy tomorrow!

  1. I love your style Lauren, you're a great inspiration! The "Keep Calm" poster is so pinterest-y :)
    Congratulations on your little guy, he's adorable!


  2. Love, love that maxi skirt outfit! And your hair looks lovely too. :)

  3. Hi Laurén! I had to finally take the time to tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog! I'm 17 and will be a junior this year (what do you know about trig?? ;)). Your blog inspires me more than I can tell you. I always try to dress in a way that I would want Jesus to see me if I met him on the street. Your lovely blog gives me so many ideas and much inspiration! I wanted to say thank you for that. And congratulations on your hansome little man! :) Have a great first week back at school! Boy am I glad we don't start until the 20th ;)

    God's Peace,

  4. I so hope that you'll post pics of your classroom. I am a first year third grade teacher and I'm so nervous. I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing and I'm panicking. Pray for me! I will be praying you have a wonderful day and complete a lot of your tasks :)

  5. You don't know me but as an older mom I just want to say, stay home with your baby!! You don't want to pay someone else to raise your child, do you? It's worth every sacrifice to stay home! He needs you.

  6. I would love to stay home..but financially that's not an option :(

  7. Lauren!! I love your hair!! It makes you look younger!!
    Have fun with that little baby of yours!!

  8. Do post classroom stuff! I'm a teacher too. I'm not glad you have to work, but I'm glad to read some Christian blogs not written by SAHM. I have four kids and need to work too. Still, I have been so encouraged by your blog to make mindful modest decisions. Thanks.

  9. I'm sorry but why? I stayed home with all seven of our kids and we have had a VERY minimal income (my husband is a pastor of a small church). God will meet your needs. :)


I love to read your comments! Thank you so much for taking time to look at my blog! XOXO
