I know I chose the right profession when...

{either that or I am really nerdy, I will accept that too}

1. I got wayyy too excited about a Smart Board. Seriously. I had a little tutorial at the clinic today and I am obsessed!! (I know I'm way behind the curve on this and all my Speechie friends who student taught think this is old news) But I have seen so many cute ideas/lessons/games today that I actually said out loud 'I want to stay in school so I could use this awesome thing!'  I get it honestly.... My Mom said Smart Boards made her want to return to teaching.
Kid you not, best thing since sliced bread.

2. I was thrilled by a new pack of pens from Staples. I stood in line for 20 minutes today to order the multi-colored pack. Because why would I want to write in black if I can write in fun colors?!

3. I printed new return address labels and it put a smile on my face. One of my New Year's Resolutions is to send more snail mail and these labels totally motivate me.

I'm so simple, school supplies make my heart happy.

I Heart Charleston Restaurant Week

At the beginning and end of tourist season {January and September} the city of Charleston hosts a restaurant week where you can eat at the best restaurants for a lot less $$$ than normal!  We love to take advantage and try new restaurants that we wouldn't normally go to.  We are so spoiled by all the great restaurants here and have a lot left to try!

Since I'm home on Mondays and Tuesdays this semester for my internship, we could have a fancy Monday night date night at Cypress.

I Pinned It, I Made It!

My recent Pintrist recipe finds...
Chicken and White Bean Enchiladas
{These were a good change from the normal enchiladas I make--I like the Cannelloni beans in them}

Make Your Own Smoothie Packets
{I made 5 baggies this weekend and already need to make more!
I also added a little protein powder in the blender to make them more filling)

Autumn Chopped Salad & Golden Winter Squash Soup
{I made these for my Mom's Progressive Birthday Dinner
The party goers loved them and they were easy to make ahead of time}

Homeade Fit Granola Bars
{From the Dashing Dish blog --she has tons of great recipes with calories already listed and many are GF.  
These bars had good flavor and texture. They were a tad crumbly, but I don't think I added enough honey/syrup. Next time I'll add more!}
