Leaving on a Jet Plane

Well, my dears, what a month it has been. So much has been happening that I will shamefully admit that I have not given much thought to my poor old blog.

Roughly three weeks ago my dad had a major surgery. Just shy of two weeks ago I was picking my long distance fiance up from the airport for a visit. Last week I was more or less on my own in the classroom running around like a chicken with my head cut-off while my co-teacher was gone.

But today, friends, on this glorious Friday morning I am sitting in the heart of the Orlando airport preparing for my long-awaited journey home for Spring break. Having been here since the wee hours of the morning (or the middle of the night, depending on how you view it) I have been buzzing around from place to place waiting for my gate to be announced.

At long last I have planted myself between two gates gazing out the window as the sun creeps up over the jet bridges and some feathered friends flit about in a little pond surrounded by palms. While trying to keep myself awake I have found myself daydreaming about what I will do to fill my days at home. My camera is loaded up with ammunition for a week's worth of blogging amidst the hustle and bustle of wedding plans and catching up with family.

I look forward to kick-starting my blog again while I share my vacation with you. I hope you all enjoy your Friday as much as I will!

Outfit of the Day

It's rare that I have a chance to wear something worthy of an Outfit of the Day during the week. Working in a preschool classroom I tend to gravitate towards things I don't mind getting messy; jeans and t-shirts. Wednesdays are my late day and after the day care closes we have church during Lent, so this was my dress-up day.

Please don't mind this messy corner of my room, or the poor quality of this photo. I shot this with my webcam because that was the easiest way to capture the whole outfit without someone around to help! 

Either way, this dress is one of my favorite things in my closet. It has been abnormally warm (so the native Floridians tell me...) the last couple of days and this dress was the perfect choice. I normally use caution when it comes to maxi dresses, being a short girl who is well endowed in the hip region. This dress, though, is fitted in just the right spots to make it figure-flattering. Not to mention it is SO comfortable! 

 Paired with a black 3/4 sleeve sweater, black sandals and some subtle silver jewelry, this is a comfortable, dressy look that even a preschool teacher can rock to work!
