My Mini-Sabbatical and a Great Sweater!

Weirdest blog title ever, right?

So lately, I have been on a not-so-intentional blog sabbatical! I am seriously blog-stalker du jour, but until today, I don't think I've even read a blog in almost 2 weeks! What is with me?!

I think I figured it out. Up until now, I have been in grad school every semester I have been teaching. Most nights, I had school work to do, therefore school was always on my mind. Every single night I "brought school home with me." Letmetellya, I am feeling free lately!!! I love teaching and only teaching!!! I've been staying at school a bit later, BUT, when I leave, school stays at school.

I have been doing more cooking, reading and exercising. But, I have to admit that I've been spending a good bit of time with The Bachelor, my Atlanta Ladies, The Kardashians, and the Dallas Mavericks :) OH, and my sweet husband. More time for him, too!

But, I'm ready to blog again! I cannot wait to read all of your blogs, and get some new inspiration!

So, for now, here is all I have to offer...I have a new favorite sweater (Christmas gift cards woo hoo!) It is much cuter in person than in the picture. I realllllly love how light it is! It is so light and comfortable. I do not like bulky sweaters, esp in the mild Texas temperatures. It is wonderful, and the horiziontal strips are shockingly flattering. Thank you Lilly Pulitzer, I love it!

Talk to you later, friends!


  1. yay! So glad you are back. LOVE the sweater.

  2. Hi Casey!
    I've been thinking about you and missing your posts.
    I am glad that you finally have a little time for yourself.
    But I'm also glad that you and your sweater are back with us!
