My name is Caroline.....and I am an addict.

My drug of choice...


I am really obsessed ya'll. I mean I just can't stop pinning away all the decorations, outfits and recipes that I want to try out. This weekend things got really out of control.

Yesterday I made a wreath for fall for my mom:

and for myself:

Then for breakfast this morning I made Mason and I pumpkin pancakes and cinnamon syrup from scratch:

For lunch, jalepeno popper grilled cheese:

and since I was on such a roll, I just baked a batch of peanut butter/nutella swirl cookies for the hell of it:
This needs to stop. I can't even make the dinner that I had planned to make tonight because my sudden Betty Homemaker/Martha Stewart-ness has left me too exhausted.

But oh how much fun it would be to fill my days with crafting and cooking instead of working. Someday... Until then, I will be cracked out on Pinterest when I can. The weekends!


I'm Busy - Polishing off Another Bottle of Chard...

My life is consumed with school right now. Teaching. Cheerleading. Meetings. Lesson Plans. More meetings to meet about what was not finished from the previous meeting. Grading. Meeting about grading. Meetings with people who can't figure out the lesson plans even though they are s-p-e-l-l-e-d out and handed on a silver platter.

....this is leading me to consume lots of wine. Carefree days of summer are gone.

My house is in shambles. Birthday cards sent are belated. My summer tan - gone. Laundry - well... I don't even want to talk about it. Such is the life of a teacher.

Mason's brother sent me this before school started.
Truer words were never written. ;)

Cheers to getting back into the routine of school! Painful though it may be.
