Sunny Sunday with a Pumpkin Spice Latte

Sunny days in Juneau are never taken for granted. After another wet and rainy week we were blessed with a beautiful Sunday. I decided to ride my bike to yoga class and enjoyed the crisp fall air as the sun came out and warmed the pavement. Today was the first day I started to feel fall in the air. I love this season because it means fuzzy boots, knitted hats and Pumpkin spice lattes at my favorite drive through coffee shop. What a perfect start to fall.

Healthy Chocolate Milkshakes!

Adam and I have been loving our banana milkshakes but the other night I decided to change it up a little bit and make chocolate milkshakes. We were pleased to find that they were just as delicious as any real chocolate shake and WAY better for you. All you need are a few frozen bananas, chocolate soy milk, whip cream and peanut butter. Blend the frozen bananas and chocolate soy milk together until it's nice and smooth, poor it in your favorite cup and top with a little whipped cream and peanutbutter. Enjoy!

We're ready for a little R & R!

What a week it's been! Life at school is always fast and furious but things were especially busy towards the end of this week.
Surgery for Rosco (read all about it on his blog ), work, doctor appointment for Terry and Parent Night at school made for a very busy Thursday! Parent night was exhuasting but it was a huge success. Adam gave a presentation to the parents of his students and had a former student talk about math club. I had a ton of parents and students visit my room thanks to the fun little scavenger hunt the 2nd grade teachers had their kids do! We didn't get home until about 8 but we ended our night perfectly....tortilla pizzas and the season premier of It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia!
Now it's the weekend. We have the usual stuff planned...laundry, lesson planning at school and other little errands but we also plan on relaxing, hanging out with friends and maybe a date to the movies. Happy Friday!

And then the sun came out to play....

What a great weekend it was in Juneau! The sun finally came out and what a welcome relief it was! Adam and I took advantage of it and played outside as much as possible. Saturday we worked on lots of outdoor projects that have been neglected due to rain. I mowed the lawn with our new motor-less mower. What a great workout that was!!!!
I did give up one sunny evening this weekend to go to the 1st annual Who's your Diva performace. It was a fundraiser for the Juneau Opera and about 10 or 12 different women (I mean DIVAS!) sang. We were blown away by the talent that we have here in Juneau. Two of the divas were still in high school and they were both pretty amazing. We will definitely be making this an annual affair!
