WILW and Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday

I missed my favorite link up last week due to my vacation, so I am so excited to get back into the swing of things.  Let's link up with Jamie @ This Kind of Love and What I'm Loving Wednesday and Michelle @ The Vintage Apple and Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday! 

(I just noticed that there is a new button for Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday, but what's done is done!  It will have to wait until next week!)

Today I am loving (well kind of) that school starts next week!  I am excited, but I am also not excited because I just really like summer.  And I do not feel that my tan has reached it's potential yet.  I maybe just need one more week!  Nevertheless, school is starting so I guess I'll be excited!

I am my loving new job (also kind of, there is good and bad).  I am still an aide, but I will be in a Special Education Resource room working with first, second, and third grade in small groups throughout the day. 

The good: 
 I don't have to have lunch duty every day, so I get a lunch break. 
I get a plan period, which I also didn't get last year.
I get to plan my own lessons (mostly).
I get to work with my kindergartners from last year, since they will be in first grade!

The bad:
I will miss kindergarten.  Students and teachers.
I will have bus duty outside.  Every day.  No matter what.  I need to invest in a pair of rain boots. 

 So I guess overall the good outweighs the bad!

I am loving the Fifty Shades of Grey series.  I know I am really late to this SM party, but I had some other books that I wanted to read first.  I finished the first book over vacation, and I am halfway through the second book now.  So far, I really like them.  There are some boring parts and the steamy parts get kind of repetitive, but they are WAY steamier than I ever imagined they would be.  I am often left puzzled with questions like:

What is that?
He did what!?!

Now let's get to Pinterest!

I am loving this little table.  Fabric and Mod Podge.  I went to the junk store with my sister yesterday and saw two round tables for $7.00.  I think I might have to go back and get them!

 Love me some okra!

Homemade pretzels and jalapeno cheese dip.  Football parties!  (The only reason I like football)

Crispy Baked Asian Wings.  Another good one for football season!

Black Magic Cake.  Supposed to be the best chocolate cake EVER.  I won't be making this.  I can't bake because then I eat it all (but I could take it somewhere).  I just think it looks so yummy!!!  

Monogrammed coozies.  So cute!

I just had a thought that I probably shpuld have saved these good football pins until its actually that time then I would have something to talk about.  Oh well!

That's all for today! 

Next week this time school will be starting, and I'll be back to getting up at 4:45 a.m. so I can do my WILW post!  Yuck.

Happy Wednesday!

That round table is so cute - you should definitely go back and get those tables you saw! I bet yours will turn out even cuter!

Good luck with your new position - it sounds like you will have a lot more freedom, which is great. It sounds like just the job to use as a final stepping stone to having your own classroom!

And I had to stop reading mid-post to go repin that pretzel recipe. That looks YUM!
