Share 4 Somethings, March edition

 


Happy Saturday, friends, and welcome to March's edition of Share 4 Somethings. This month we're talking about what we loved, read, learned and ate in March. I can't wait to read your posts! As a reminder, don't forget to visit the other entries and leave some comment love on their blogs. I'll jump right in! 


I loved having a week off from work for spring break this month! I am still enjoying the benefits of my job, like getting paid for time working, even on the days when I don't work. I don't know that I'll ever get over that. 


I loved going out of town with Todd, even if we did almost kill each other on the way back home. I'm rolling my eyes at us. Sometimes we fight, yup. 




I loved the time changing, and the fact that it's staying light for longer now. 

I read a few great books! Not as many as I'd have liked, but I did finish one over the course of our time away during spring break. 




I enjoyed sitting out here while I read a couple of days. Come back next week to read about the books I read in March! I'll share them next Friday, most likely. 


I learned so much about the amazing school that I work at while I was working on the application we're submitting as a nominee for a national blue ribbon school. We have so much diversity in our school, and our students speak more than 23 languages. I think that's incredible! We also offer so many programs, clubs, and events to reinforce what is being taught in each classroom, and in the process, it's drawn the entire school community together as a very close-knit family. (These are all truths I've drawn from reading the application over and over and over again.)


I ate so many good things this month, but by far, it was these meals from different places while in Louisville, or while I was out with my dad.







I'm such a foodie. I can't help myself! 


I can't wait to read your posts! Thanks for joining up with us today. I'll see you back here next week, friends. Love to all!

Your food pics are delectable!
All of that food looks so good. I hope you enjoy the weekend.

It sounds like March was a wonderful month for you! What a wonderful and diverse school you work at.
Cindy said…
It sounds like a great month! I never remember to come back and see what you read and I NEED to do that, I am such a Book nerd, LOL!!! The food looks delicious! And, you are excused from almost killing your husband, LOL, we are ALL always so tired at the end of a trip and it is stressful getting home, LOL!! Now, if it had been at the beginning of the trip ;)

I love asparagus. I'm always happy when spring rolls around and I can indulge again. That's amazing that you have such a diverse school! I have met people from many different countries through my work here in Switzerland, including Ghana, Kosovo, and Portugal, and that's been wonderful too.

Those meals look delish! I teach at a really diverse school too, and I'm always amazed at what I learn from our students. Thanks for hosting this link up!
Thanks, Cathy! That last one with all the cheese was at my favorite Mexican restaurant. That dish is amazing! It's grilled chicken with onions, peppers, and mushrooms.
Thanks, Julie! I hope you had a good weekend!
Joanne, it was so good! And yes! I love that about our school.
Cindy, I am the same way and always want to know what people area reading. I am every bit the bookworm that you are! I appreciate that reminder that most of us are like that coming home from a trip together. You are so right!
Lory, I love that about the warmer months too! That's amazing that you have the same kind of situation where you are in Switzerland. What an amazing benefit of where you live and work!
Thanks, Paula, I am glad to host this! I'm so glad you join us each month!
Thanks, Jen! I love that you work at the same type of school. I'm so glad to host this each month!
Lois Flowers said…
Sounds like you had a great month, Jennifer! And what a blessing to be able to work at a school like that (and get paid for days you don't work)!
Lisa notes... said…
I appreciate you sharing that you, too, sometimes fight with the one you love. :) It means you're honest. 23 languages at your school is incredible! What a beautifully diverse community that is.
Jennifer said…
I was a little late getting to the link-up this month....but I made it! And, as always, enjoyed visiting with everyone! Thanks for hosting. And that photo of you and your hubby (up at the top) is a great one! Need to print that one off....maybe for your desk at work:)
Thank you, Lois! It is such a blessing!
Jennifer, better late than never! I'm so glad you joined us. Thanks for that, I just may do that!
Thank you for those encouraging words, Lisa! Yes, we are definitely human over here. Ha! With marriage and real life comes all things good, bad, and ugly. I'm so glad you joined us this month!

Fall 2020, "Come on in!"

Is it just me, or did September fly by?! That was when I brought out all the fall touches of decorations in our home—September 1st, to be exact. I thought I'd let you in and show you around our home and all the little fall touches I have sprinkled around. We still don't have landscaping, but our porch is cute! Here's to hoping I don't kill this pretty mum. I purchased some new door mats recently. One simply says, "Hello" and the other is black and white that goes under the brown one. I got the cute welcome sign from Hobby Lobby for half off! The other side says, "Welcome, Friends."  You can tell a lot about the house by a front porch and I've always tried to make ours inviting. Sometimes I succeed and other times I don't.  Myquillyn Smith (The Nester) says that a home feeling welcoming involves all of the senses, beginning with smell. I love the scents of fall that I find in my favorite candles and I have them burning if I'm home during t

10 on the tenth, let's look and a blog hop

  Happy Wednesday, friends! These days I am all about blog link-ups and today is no exception. I'm linking up with Leslie from a blog I have recently found called Once Upon a Time & Happily Ever After . I've never participated in this link-up before, so I thought it'd be fun to do this month. Because of Sunday being Valentine's day, all the questions this month are about love. I'm also linking up with Erika from A Little Bit of Everything and Shay from Mix and Match Mama , as they discuss love languages today. I am also participating in a Wednesday blog hop that I found through Penny over at Penny's Passion . I'll jump right in! How romantic am I ? Based upon my love of a good rom-com or Hallmark movie, I'd say that I am more romantic than I originally thought. The problem is that I've changed over the years and though I used to not be this way, I am now. I swoon over undivided attention, compliments, an arm around me or my husband playing with

dinner inspiration

Happy Tuesday, friends! I thought I'd do another dinner inspiration (or lunch) post since so many of you enjoyed the one I wrote last week.  I feel like I have this new appreciation for food all of a sudden, and I only want good food. I've always been like this in a sense, and because I enjoy good food, I enjoy cooking. I've never loved chain restaurants and these days I don't like eating out all that much, because the quality of food usually never matches the high price. We do have a few places we like to visit for date nights, one is a chain and the only chain I currently like (Longhorn) and the other is a local place called Jim's Grille. We always go to Jim's for our anniversary and we usually visit Longhorn once a year. We also have some other local places we like as well—my favorite Mexican place is called La Perla Tapatia and for fast food that's similar to Moe's we like to go to Booya's. They also have great burgers and cheese fries. Our other
