Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you. There’s so much I want to say in this post but I will spare you a long blog post.

2015 was a tough year for me…personally, professionally, financially..all of that. I don’t share much of my personal life on my blog. Why? I’m not sure. What affects my personal life affects everything else that I do. 2015 was the year that I struggled to deal with the loss of my mother. Like, it messed me up big time y’all. I am lucky that my husband stayed with me because I was a mess! A BIG FAT MESS! He helped me get through this year with some extremely tough love.

With the sadness of my mom’s loss, I had the happiness of finding out that I was expecting another child. We found out in July 2015, and it really helped to raise my spirits.

Professionally, I started a new school…in a new district…in a new city. My new environment is cool, but I really miss home and I really miss my old school. My new school is very different than the schools that I have taught in before. It’s taking me a while to adjust.

That brings me to this here blog…abandonment doesn’t even begin to describe it. I have not blogged like I should by any means. I let me beloved You Oughta Know Blog Hop fall by the wayside, and I don’t know when the last newsletter was sent out.

I’m sorry guys!


I’m back…(insert your smile here)

My goal for 2016 is to just get back to doing what I do best. Blogging, sharing what I do in my classroom, hosting blog hops and linkys, meeting new teacher bloggers, and more! I want to re-vamp my blog to include more personal things like things I do with my family and all of the Pinterest recipes that I try out (the good, bad, and ugly). I want to get back to making funny videos (check my IG or Vine if you haven’t seen them).

I just wanna have fun again.

I hope you will keep reading.


  1. Yay! Welcome back :) May this year bring you much blessing!

  2. Welcome back! Losing a parent is very difficult, and change is too. Here's to having fun again! I'll be looking forward to reading about your precious little one on the way, your recipes, and the amazing things you'll do in your classroom. Happy New Year!
    Laughter and Consistency

    1. Thanks so much Jan for your encouraging words :-)

  3. Aww Jasmine! Thanks for sharing! I'm glad that you're finding joy even in the sad times! God is good! I was stopping by to check in about "You Oughta Know About," but I definitely do NOT want to add to your plate. If you would like any help with anything, you have an amazing support system here that would love to help you in any way! xoxo
