WIWW: April + Link Up

Playing hooky today and throwing up some outfits from this month because, well, I'd rather do that than make you feast your eyes upon what I am currently wearing.

You can call this my April fashion recap post, but I hate using the word fashion because I really just wear cheap, comfortable clothes. I guess that is fashion, but fashion sounds so high-end which is not Sarah Tucker. 


- These pants need to be in your closet.

- Thanks for all the love on my post yesterday. Ya'll rock!

- I let the dogs sleep with me last night since Chris is out of town. That is a big no-no, but after consulting Chris and him saying, "absolutely not," I covered up the comforter and let the pups snuggle with me. I obviously listen really well.

-  Does anyone else watch Newlyweds: The First Year? If not, you should. I'm addicted, and as I have proven before, my taste in shows ranks right up there with the trashiest, so run to the closest tv and watch, watch, watch. And, if I am being honest, this is probably least crazy of all the shows I watch, so...convincing? 

- Who gets dizzy when looking at all the bazillion new emojis on their phone? (insert brown-heaired girl raising her hand here!)

Now for the link up!

- All I ask is you link back to my blog and link to a specific post.

- Write about something fashion related!

- Instagram @SarahTuckerUp for more outfits and randoms!

Trying to stay positive

This time of year all teachers are at our whits end. The days are long and the kids basically consider themselves done with their current grade, especially fifth graders. You might as well have handed them the keys to a car and kissed them away to college.

Throughout the day I find myself being a little too impatient and I have to remind myself, "they are just kids..." It is tough. I'd be lying if I said there haven't been days where I have personally apologized to a student because I felt like I was too hard on them.

All I want them to do is love me as a teacher and love their last year in elementary. Everyday I am trying to make the choice to be positive. My principal reminded us to not count the days until summer but, instead, count the days left to change these kids lives.

Yes, I've been counting down the days until summer. What teacher hasn't. Yesterday was rough and it made me want these next couple weeks to fly by, but I am trying to make the most of the short time I have left with my cherubs.

I was driving Chris's (new) truck yesterday and I didn't pull it far enough in the garage and when I let the garage door down it put a gash in the bumper. I almost started to cry then I thought, it is just a truck. No one died, no one got hurt, and we are blessed to even have a truck, but I felt terrible. I called Chris and he just started laughing and saying, "Honey, this just proves why we can't get you a new car quite yet." Hardy-har-har to the guy who backed into a tree at my parent's house a couple months after owning said truck. And should I even mention the truck has sensors and a backup camera? 

Anyways, I guess what I am trying to say is that I am challenging myself to think positively in all aspects of life. Don't want to go to the gym? Be thankful you are healthy enough to workout. Tired of your job? Be thankful you have one. Scratch you husband's new truck? Trade it in a buy yourself a car while he is out of town :) Just kidding...sort of!

Happy Tuesday!

Weekend Wrap || Perfect Floral Pants

How is Monday already? This weekend was full and great, but I could use one more day. Chris and I always joke that we are going to move to a country where the hours worked per week are like 25. America should adopt that lifestyle. 

Friday night we hung out with some friends for a birthday party. We played darts and went out for Mexican food. By 10:30pm I made us leave because I could barley keep my eyes open. The struggle is real. 

Saturday we had big plans to be out and about running errands. Instead we stayed around the house and relaxed, did chores, and I doodled on our chalkboard. (Inspiration here)

Saturday night we had friends over for game night. We played cards and snacked on chips and dip. We have really started to try and be "young" while we have no kids. To us, being young includes hanging out with friends, saying 'yes' more when asked to go places, and not complaining when we stay out later than 9:00pm. It is safe to assume we are still struggling with the last one. 

Sunday morning was beautiful. We woke up and had coffee outside before starting our day.

Sunday afternoon I headed to Target for flowers and groceries. I walked away with these pants. I could not pass them up! They are so comfy and will be perfect to dress up on our cruise and when we go to Mexico later this year. I'm already imagining how many ways I can style them!

And lastly, did you see my rare Saturday post? I am on the hunt for the perfect swimsuit and I've finally narrowed it down!

Happy Monday!
