Find something good...

I need to write something good every day. I need to find the positive.
1. The blue-eyed student read independently to me today. I taught him how to do that.
2. We got to lunch on time.
3. 2 of my struggling students completed their O book work independently.

I need to find something good to write about each day. It's going to make it better.

Does it ever get done?! Even with a vacation full of planning, creating, making, designing, is it possible to say, yep, I'm done? I feel so overwhelmed. Sometimes, I wish I could leave it all there and truly be done. I don't feel creative. I don't feel like it's possible. Even if I throw myself into it wholeheartedly, it never gets done. 9-4? Not on your life. More like 8:00-7:30 and on weekends. I chose this.... better buckle down and get started. Only 12 more hours until I am there again... and I haven't even started tonight's load. How can someone even have a family with all this?!

Daydream blog believer

I read fashion blogs often. Mmmm...let's say daily. I feel weird sometimes because I like clothes so much. I feel like the only way to get out how I feel about it is writing a blog. I feel like I'm a minority in my circle of friends. Not that it's a bad thing... Sometimes my husband talks about music the same way I talk about clothes.... it's hard to get all the emotion about it out because it feels like I'm just talking and people think I'm crazy. I think I love my clothes the way a lot of people love their pets. I love when a fashion blogger posts about buying clothes at
- Wal-Mart
- Target
- Forever 21
- Thrift stores
- Vintage Stores
- Ross
because everytime they do... I feel like they know. They know what it's like to get excitd over an accessory. They know what it's like to not be rich. They know what it's like to value a dollar. They know how I feel. I tell Joe all the time, "Man, if I met that girl, we'd have so much fun together and we'd be immediate best friends."

But, when I read fashion blogs, sometimes I day dream... I dream about what it'd be like to have a wall full of shoes. I dream about having the perfect pair of skinny jeans and not feeling bad about the cost. I dream about my next thrift store junket...

But for now... I'm a realista-fashionista-teacherista :o)

Umbrella earrings- $5.99 @ Target
Scarf- less than $5 on eBay
Grey burnout tank- $7 on clearance @ Target
Wedding ring- priceless... <3 my husband LOTS!

Model Shoot? Or... DL Photo Day?

Who really likes taking their pictures for their driver's license? Let's be honest, if a police officer is looking at your id, odds are you are not going to be cute or happy. Dang it.

Last time I renewed my license I went after school. Annnnndddd.... we'd just been on a field trip. I though I still looked put together but after the photo was printed, I see how the lady at the DMV failed to tell me my hair was messed up. Thanks, awesome lady. Thanks.


Hooray! Good news! I got married! Hooray! Good news! I get a new driver's license photo! SCORE! When I got up today, I said, "Shoot. I be takin' a photo today. I be lookin' fly. Lemme get this hurr curled pretty. I gotta make sure my makeup be lookin' right."


When all was said and done... husband man told me I looked very pretty and said, "Get your camera!". That man is made for me. <3 Photobucket

I'm a big weirdo and I love it! Be yourself!


Today, when the lady called me to pick up my new, winning license she called for "Mrs. Coatney". That makes my face and heart smile.
The end result:

Next time you take your driver's license photo, be prepared. Be very prepared....
And as always,

I heart hats!

I love hats! I try to wear them as much as I can in summer because, as a teacher, you don't get to wear them to school. Lucky me, my husband let me wear his hat.

And, yay for my strawberry earring with my beetle earring! Plus, a special thanks goes to my teacher friend, Jennie, for my super fun Hello Kitty kids meal watch!


Do you wear hats? Do you love hats? Do you think you look silly in hats? Try on a hat today!

And as always,

Sat-ur-day in July... hearts

We met to make cranes today. You see, it's part of her bucket list to learn how. Thankfully, I could help with that. These cranes are going to be taken to a children's hospital because, to my friend, they represent hope. And in asian cultures, it's believed if you make 1,000 you get a wish granted. If anything, it's gonna make a kid smile...and that make me smile. I'm proud of my friend.

Paper Crane Magic... "I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world” which reminds me of this "But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31 NLT

Dia de Los Muertos earrings my husband bought me on our honeymoon

I am crazy about these earrings. I know skulls are a sorta non-traditional to some people but the style these are always remind me of Dia de lose Muertos and Spanish, which I love!

Husband man's t-shirt

Fantastic hi-tops purchased at T-Pat's Treasures in Nashville, TN
I LOVE THESE SHOES! I couldn't wait to wear them and they got to make their big debut today.

Pale is the new tan, right?

Be brave... try new things... be inspired... hope

Happy Wife Happy Life

I have the BEST husband ever! He always encourages me to write on my blog and knows how much I love fashion... That said, he's also the photographer for today's pictures. So thankful God made him because I feel so lucky to have him...

Kandee Johnson is one of my FAVORITE youtube stars... love this hair-do! I debuted it today at Vacation Bible School.

Today I imagined myself as a Jana-fied 40's/50's lady.... I like it. I felt fun and quirky and like this... WHEEEEE!




"You're a penguin! Be a penguin! Pretend you have the little egg and you can't let it get away!" ~ Husband Man

"Be an eagle! Soar! Catch a fish!"

So thankful Husband Man humors me when I say, "Will you take a picture of my outfit?" This way, I can share! Plus, a special thanks goes out to Cheryl for giving me this fantastic dress. I had so much fun debuting the dress today...

Here's to trying new things and feeling fashionably brave....
