What I'm Loving... Thursday?

I'm late on my favorite post! I've been completely consumed with worrying/planning for the next school year. If you're new here, I currently teach part time in 1st and 2nd grade, the other days I have been lucky enough to take care of some sweet babes, but my teaching heart really wants my very own classroom next year, and that's been the plan all along since getting my credential. It's been a crazy year and a half of subbing, then working part time, and now making all the plans, crossing all of my t's dotting all of my i's and doing everything in my power to ensure that I'll have a room of my own that's the best fit possible. So... having said that it's been hard to focus or really think about anything else lately since almost all of my efforts have been going towards that!

Moving on... I still wanted to participate in Jamies What I'm Loving Wednesday because I have a few fun things I wanted to share!


 This sweet book. I heard about this little collection of real life love stories over at Specky & Sally and I have to say.. I could not. put. it. down. Eventually I did though because I was turning into a blubbering mess and I'm pretty sure Mr. Jones needed a break ;)  This is a sweet collection of stories transcribed from 40 minute "interviews" set up in a booth in Grand Central Station in NYC. They will have you laughing and crying and falling in love... with.. love. Mr. Jones and I read a few together on the couch, it was very romantic. That is until I was snot nosed and puffy from all the sweet tears ;)


This movie... I mentioned last week that we were off to see The Five Year Engagement and I have to give a little recommendation! We saw that it was 5th in the box office on it's opening weekend and both of us were a little surprised. It's the perfect amount of funny and sweet, set in San Francisco partly which I loved and has an amazing soundtrack filled with Van Morrison covers. The story was silly and fun (LOVE Jason Segal and Chris Pratt)  yet incredibly touching and real. You'll laugh a lot, and if you're like me probably cry quite a bit as well.  Lovely little movie.


Spring runs. With the weather being sunny and warm (ahhemm minus today) I've been trying to get plenty of outdoors time in. Whether it's heading out on a run or taking a stroll by the water with my love. Loved seeing all of these people lunching in the park yesterday on their lunch breaks!


A few new additions to my closet! I have a few fun events coming up and had been wanting something new to wear. Because I am a die hard budget shopper I decided to see what Marshalls had and happily walked out with this pretty new tunic blouse for $12.99... excited for all of the possibilities. Love a good staple.

I also wanted to point out that this necklace which is almost an exact copy of the coveted JCrew one I've been seeing on so many blogs, is from H&M and I'm pretty sure it was about $12. I LOVE it and pair it with everything. It has come unclasped twice but to repair it's only taken a pair of tweezers to close the chain. Personally I like it better than the JCrew version because it's a bit "chunkier".


Mr. Jones surprised me yesterday with this new jacket! I was so excited because I had been on the hunt for some new outdoor workout gear. It did the job perfectly yesterday on my run and I know it will be in regular rotation. ;)

Hope you too have lots to love this week! Crossing my fingers that I'll have some good classroom news to share this time next week! Feel free to send good vibes my way!

XOXO- Miss V.
