Teacher Week 2012: Therapeutic Thursday

Here are my favorite ways to relax after a long week…


My husband and I LOVE going to movies. We don’t go as often as we like, but we love getting a big bucket of popcorn and catching a flick. I’m hoping to check out the new Bourne movie soon!

We also love this restaurant (we will often go there before the movie! If we have a babysitter, we better take advantage of it!).  It’s a local restaurant, but one of our faves.  The burgers are awesome, but my favorite are the potato chips!  They are cut right in front of you and delivered fresh out of the oil.  YUM.


I’ve always been a crafter.  I love to knit and crochet!  It’s fun to create something – often for my kids!


TV.  I never watch shows live – they are always recorded on the DVR and I watch them after the kiddos go to bed.  I like most of the Housewife shows, but BH is probably my fave.  I will NOT miss an episode of Parenthood. LOVE that show.  I was so bummed to hear the The Killing was cancelled this year.  I started watching it on Netflix this summer, and it’s great!

I have the best husband in the world.  He gives me foot massages. 

I love dreaming of beautiful jewels, homes, hair, craft projects…..

Of course I love hanging out with these two :)

And I love catching up with all of “you!”  Blogging and creating things are FUN and surprisingly relaxing for me!

So, how do you unwind after a long week?

Head on over to Blog Hoppin’ for more great ways to unwind!

  5. Love your blog & am your newest follower. Isn't DVR the best invention?? And the foot massages - wow. My boyfriend is great about them, so I think we're definitely pretty lucky! I'd love for you to stop by & visit sometime:)

  6. I've been using your "The day the monster came to school" pack and zero the hero resources this week and they are inspiring some great fun in my room. Thanks for all your hard work :)


  7. Thank you ever so much for all the work you do and share with us out in blog land.
    I discovered your calendar songs. Do you have the whole year? I found August, January and October. I am really hoping you have created them as they would be so perfect for my students.

  8. I love going to the movies too. Pricey though so I don't go as often as I'd like. I've been using Viggle (an app where you get points for watching tv) to cash in points for movie tickets. :)
