Caine’s Arcade {A cardboard arcade made by a 9-year old boy}

13 Apr
I saw this video on my friend’s blog, Pretty Things and Potty Mouths, and just had to share it. I had kind of a crappy day at work and this totally just made my day. It is so amazing and this boy is so cute. I wish I could go visit his arcade. Love. 
Please click on the link below to check out the video. You will love it. And a warning…it might make you a little teary.

hiking {mt. monadnock}

12 Apr
So I think this hiking thing might just become a regular event for Dan and I. Which I guess is ok…..because I really do like the view from the top.
So this past weekend Dan and I went hiking on Mt. Monadnock. We tried going when we were in college but I couldn’t do it and we had to turn around. So I am proud of myself that I made it all the way up this time, with limited complaining…and it was really cold at the top. And windy. But we still had a good time.

spring time {in NY}

10 Apr
A couple of weekends ago, Dan and I went to visit his parents in NY. We went for a run at a park and there were some beautiful blooms. I think they are a little ahead of us here in NH when it comes to spring blooms. When our run was finished, I went back with our camera to snap some pretty pictures of the flowers.

hiking {mt major}

10 Apr
Dan loves hiking. I like the idea of hiking but the actual act of hiking…I could take it or leave it. However, I let him drag me up a mountain from time to time…which I think will probably be happening more often now that it is getting warmer again.
So last weekend, on the 31st, we went for a hike on Mt. Major. It is about an hour or so north of where we live.

I always feel like I’m dying on the way up but I enjoy the view from the top. It was a pretty cloudy day, but still a pretty view.


So I think there will be more hikes to come and I will be sure to share with all of you.

Things have felt crazy lately. I’m not really sure if there are specific things or just life in general. I can’t really put my finger on it….all I know is life has felt crazy.
I’ve been applying for jobs like crazy. I really really REALLY want a teaching job for next year. I am so ready to move on with my career. I have been checking for jobs every single day and sending out applications for anything I find that is in an elementary school. I think I’ve applied for about 25ish jobs so far and I’m writing them all down so I can remember what I’ve applied for. I know it is still early to hear back but I’m hoping I can at least get some interviews. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

There are some things I’ve been meaning to post about so hopefully I can get to some of those this week.
Hope everyone is having a good week!

Here are some of my photos from the past week.
This is my friend Hillary. She told me that for $1, she would lick the raspberry sauce off the plate. So, of course, I paid her $1.
Happy weekend!

blog under construction {kind of}

6 Apr
So I have been playing around with the way my blog looks for a little bit. I haven’t had a ton of time to just sit and play, but I have been doing a little here and there. I was getting bored with the way it was looking and want to make it look more like me. I still want to add a header and maybe a few other things. I think I found a background I like and a theme I like. It is a start anyway.
This have been crazy busy because I have been trying to apply for jobs, which takes up so much time and is so annoying, and other things have been going on. Most of the time I feel like I just want to curl up in my bed in my sweats and sleep or read or just lay there.
Hopefully I can spend some more time on this blog and actually start really blogging again. I decided to not do another photo challenge right now because I was feeling totally unmotivated and I also wasn’t really blogging about anything else. So I want to get back into that. We have been doing some things that I could be blogging about I just haven’t gotten around to it. My goal is to be better about blogging.
How do you think the blog looks so far? Any suggestions for me about how to make it look better and/or how to get me motivated to be a better blogger?
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
