Five on Friday

Happy Friday friends! With it being a four day work week Friday got here a little bit quicker than normal. Let's just take a minute to say thank goodness for that. With it nearing the end of the school year my first graders are getting very antsy and I think the teachers are too. Only 13 more days to go until we are in full out summer mode! Today I'm linking up today for Five on Friday with 4 of my favorite blogs. Thanks for hosting  April,  ChristinaDarci and Natasha

One. NEW job! 
I have some very exciting news! About a month ago I accepted a position teaching at an elementary school in Shallotte. This is SO much closer to where Justin lives. I am beyond thrilled to start this next chapter of my life!! No more 3 hour drives every single weekend trying to make long distance work! [insert huge grin] To make it even better it is one of the best elementary schools in the area. I have been trying to move out of Greenville for about 2 years now but for whatever reason it just never worked out. God works in mysterious ways and I truly believe I was kept here for a reason. Everything works out in His time. 

Two. Moving 
My new job will begin in August at the start of the next school year. I hope to officially move down the first of July though. I can't believe it's already almost June! Justin and I are spending this weekend checking out the area and looking for a place to live. Fingers crossed we are able to find something!

Three. Porch time 
Spring is by far my favorite season. I have been able to spend my evenings this week on our screened in porch. It's been so nice.. I just love it! 

Four. Beach trip
I have been blessed to get to know and work with the absolute best group of girls the past two years. They have become my very best friends. Since two of the five of us are moving after this school year, we decided to take a girls beach trip one weekend. We had the BEST time. I'm so thankful for their friendship!

Five. Blackbox
Has anyone else been watching ABC's Blackbox? It's a little eccentric and not my normal type of go to show but I am hooked! 


  1. Congrats on the new job, that will be such a great change in life :)

  2. Congrats on the new job! Glad you'll be closer to Justin. :)

  3. Congratulations on your new job! God definitely worked it out!
