Can I just stop and shout out/virtual fist bump to all my teacher peeps out there…we’ve nearly made it through the first nine weeks of school. Now, we know the next nine weeks is loaded with the Holiday Triathalon- Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, which is the true test of what good teachers are made of.
Nonetheless, we have ¼ of the year DOWN. Got me feelin like-
If you’re not a teacher, you still deserve a virtual fist bump for being halfway through your week. Downhill from here, y’all.
This past weekend at Wal-Mart, the place was crawlin with my students. Most of my students are super pumped to see me and nearly tramble me with their exceitment to see me outside of school. But then there are those students who are utterly petrified to see me outside the confines of school and do everything in their abiity to avoid eye contact with me. Hilarious strategy, little ones.
Whilst Wal-Marting, of course, they are loading me up with autumnal awesomeness. I’ve got a round-up of treats that hopefully make their way into your buggie soon!
1. Jones Creek Grass-Fed Beef
WHAT: Ground beef, filet, chuck roast, and other cuts of 100% grass-fed beef
WHERE: Refrigerated meat aisle
WHY: More omega 3's, B-vitamins, vitamin E, and minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
2. Organic frozen butternut squash
WHAT:Precut, dinner-ready organic butternut squash

3. Adorable Fall Kitchen Towels

4.Heat Street Glazed Pecans

WHY: When you want to treat yo self to a nicer than average bottle of Pinot without wrecking your budget, this is the bottle for you (plus I can't so enjoy it for me)
Alrighty y'all, that's all for this week. I hope you keep on rockin' out this week. If it's been a rough one, just know that the weekend is near.
As always, if any of these treats make it into your grocery cart this week or weekend, snag a pic and tag me on Instagram or Facebook. Y'all are the best!
