'Twas the End of the Week Before Vacation

Next week is February break for both Rich and me. Lucy couldn't be more pumped!

We're lucky to teach in two districts with the same vacation weeks! While Rich will be coaching basketball throughout the week (it's the final week!), and I will have some grad school and preschool work to do, we'll have time to do fun things, too!

Rich said that his vacation wish list includes going out to eat somewhere we love or someplace new, doing something fun together, and maybe taking a day trip. We live not too far from some pretty cute northern NH towns which have great restaurants, some shopping, and lots of charm!
Before I talk about my vacation to do list, I'm excited to not have to think about painting the kitchen! It's been hanging over my head for many vacations now, and it's so nice to have that checked off of my to do list! Bonus: my mom won't even have to gently bring up that I should do it. Check that off YOUR vacation to do list, Mom!

First off, I will spend PLENTY of time snuggling this girl. On the couch. By the fire. There is nothing like having nowhere to go on a frigid New Hampshire winter day and spending the day snuggled up in a cozy house! Bring it on.

I'd like to get my stenciled flower canvasses hung up in the living room, and it's probably just about time to take down the Valentine's Day decor (though, in truth, it will probably end up staying put until it's officially time to celebrate spring!).

I love Rich's idea of taking a little drive to somewhere cute for the day and grabbing some lunch. We used to do things like that so much more often, it would be fun.

If it ever gets to a reasonable temperature outside, I am dying to get out snowshoeing! It seems like it's either been blizzarding or below zero almost all month!

Also, I have a couple of projects with materials and ideas ready and waiting to go. I'm hoping to get some inspiration and motivation to get some crafting done! You know I'll be sure to share!

Now, if only I could motivate myself to get a paper written and checked off of my to do list early, that would be great.

If you're a teacher also on vacation for a week, what are your plans? With the 5th snowy weekend in a row, my fingers are crossed we won't spend a whole week shoveling!

I'll leave you with this beautiful, snowy sunrise I caught on my way to work the other day. Happy Friday to everyone, on vacation or just pumped for the weekend!
