The Masters

This week is one of our favorite events in our house: The Masters.  As a golfer and a Southerner (I’ve adopted the South as my home),  I feel it is a unique and special tournament.  Jarrett and I both get into all of the Majors, but there is something special about Augusta National and The Masters.

My toes are ready for the week as well – every year I paint my toenails green for the week.  This year’s shade is from Wet-n-Wild and it’s called “Sagreena the Teenage Witch.” Although, if I were naming the polish I would call it “Green Jacket” for the prize at the Masters.

We’re already planning our menu for Sunday’s Final Round: Pimiento Cheese Sandwiches, Egg Salad Sandwiches (both of which are sold at The Masters) and “adult” Arnold Palmers.  They’re “adult” because we substitute Firefly Skinny Tea Vodka for regular Sweet Tea.  I’m still coming up with a few more goodies for Sunday’s viewing… stay tuned.



Second Attempt at Blogging

I’ve decided to give blogging another try.  I started a blog last year (, but quickly neglected it.  I think I lost interest because I hadn’t found my blogging voice yet. I have decided that this blog is going to be about sharing the things that drive me and help me live a full life.

What will you find on this blog?

I am passionate about food and cooking, which means you’ll find yummy recipes and links on this site.

I am also fortunate to have a career that I love and that inspires me every day – I am a teacher.  I’ll post my successes and mishaps in the classroom, as well as, links and reflections on education in general.

My husband and I both like to do projects around our house and on our patio (one day we’ll have a yard!!).  Some of our projects are inspired by Pinterest and others we come up with on our own.  I’ll share our results and ideas in this section.

The final aspect of living a full life for me is fitness.  I strive to be active and will share my insights and inspiration to be fit.
