Life Lately

Hi y'all! Today was scheduled for chapter 5 thoughts on Word Nerds, but that's going to be delayed until tomorrow. It's one of my favorite chapters and I just don't have it in me to write it this late in the day. I promise it will be up tomorrow!
I didn't want to skip the entire day without posting (like yesterday...), so I thought we'd have a little life lately post! :) A lot of these pics come from Instagram...if you don't have Instagram, go download it right now. It's my favorite app! I find SO many great teaching (and other) ideas there! My name is msleslieann01 :)

I organized this monstrosity of an office closet. Now I'm actually able to find supplies. If only my bookshelves would organize themselves. *sigh*

I've been enjoying my summer days with this sweet girl. :)


I discovered the world of agenda planning, in which I talk about more in this post on my Life+Style blog Southern Belle Inspired.

I finished this utterly strange book. Have y'all ever read this? It's told entirely from a 5 year old's point of view. His mom was kidnapped when she was 19 and locked in a shed for 7 years, during which she has Jack, the 5 year old narrator. It's an odd book. Not bad, just strange. Let me know what you thought of it if you've read it before!

Since I've become agenda obsessed this summer, I broke down and purchased an Erin Condren Life Planner. Let me tell y'all, I don't think I've ever been as excited for the Fed Ex man to arrive as I was Wednesday. It was like Christmas morning! Do y'all use the ECLP? I'm so stinkin' excited about it!!! :) :) 

I've watched a billion youtube videos to figure out how to make stickers for it :) 

I instagrammed this pic yesterday and a lot of y'all wondered where I got the chart paper. I purchased it from a local school supply shop called Davies. I've never ordered online, but you can check them out here

Apparently I've been living under a rock and have never experienced the Chick Fil A Chicken Minis. Oh my word! Quite possibly the best things I've ever eaten. Seriously. I'm swooning just looking at the picture. 

This display of Harry Potter books makes me happy. That is all. #bestbookever #expelliarmus #yepimanerd

I'm tickled pink over my latest Etsy purchase. These prints from lauraamiss are so pretty. I ordered a set of 4 that show different cities. These two are London and Chicago. Check out her gorgeous work here

  1. I desperately want an Erin Condren Life Planner! I guess I just need to break down and spend the money on it already! Your dog is too cute! And I've never read that book, but I tend to like the weird, twisty books to I'll put it on my to-be-read list!

    1. Have you ever watched all the YouTube videos out there about decorating your planner? Tons of them used the ECLP and that's what convinced me to splurge! I want the lesson planner now! :)

  2. Room is one of my favorite books. The writing is captivating and the storytelling is so attention grabbing. I think the author did a phenomenal job of writing in the voice of a child. It is a strange book, but I always recommend it to friends. Except that it's hard to describe what it's about without giving away plot details.

  3. I have been using the ECLP for about 6 years and I LOVE it! I also use their teacher planner which works really well for me. I'd love to see how you organize your ECLP to get more ideas!
