happy Monday, vol. 25

3 things that are making me happy lately ...

1.  Right now, I'm reading "Princess Academy" by Shannon Hale because I will be booktalking it for students. While I have already read and subsequently booktalked some books that  I didn't personally love, but I knew would appeal to our students, I am truly enjoying this one. Hale evokes the unique community the Princess Academy students come from, and masterfully depicts the relationships between the students as well as their family relationships.
2. I baked banana bourbon muffins using this recipe last week, which assuaged my guilt about having let an entire bunch of bananas get overripe.
3. Taking my love of stripes to a new level with Gap's nautical shift. While I attempted to buy a similar Gap dress a while back, that order was never fulfilled because they ran out of stock. Look for it in an outfit post soon. :)


  1. Banana bourbon muffins? Those sound amazing! And I love that Gap dress - so cute :)

  2. Thanks, Annie! Can't wait to wear the dress. :) And the banana muffins were so good, I might just have to bake another batch this weekend.
