Eli Young Band & A Routine Monday

On Sunday night, I went to Cowboy Coast in Ocean City to see Eli Young Band!! I’ve seen them open before at other country concerts I’ve been to, but hadn’t seen them play as the main band before. Hands down, best song is “Crazy Girl.”

I went with my friend, Nadia, and we had a great night!


Little story: I’ve actually known her since we were both 5 years old – she lived across the street when my family was building our new house, so I would always see her outside with her older sister. At 5 years old, it’s not like I did much to help with building the house or moving in, so I would play with Nadia when my parents were busy with the new house. We’ve been best friends ever since. Those security questions that ask for the name of your childhood best friend? Got ‘em down.

Cowboy boots were a must! I don’t have a pair of my own, so shout out to my sister for letting me borrow hers. I may or may not have also worn them yesterday to a work meeting. I figured if I was going to borrow them, I might as well wear them as much as possible before giving them back, right??


After working all day, I ran back home to let my dog, Tess, out, and spend some time with her before heading to the gym. I might be biased, but isn’t she the cutest?!


At the gym, I completed a shoulder workout that included sets of: upright rows, standing overhead presses, front raises, side raises, lateral raises, shoulder shrugs, and push-ups. It was a good one! I’m making myself take a rest day today. I’ve been exhausted all day for some reason so I think it’s time for a day off. Working out has become such a part of my daily routine, and something I really enjoy, so I have to remind myself sometimes that rest days are just as important!

I’ve never designated one day of the week as a day off from the gym or a rest day, though. Since every week is different and the workouts I do vary as well, I just try to listen to my body and take a day off when I need one. Do you have a specific day of the week that you designate as a rest day from working out and the gym? Or do you take rest days whenever life throws them at you? (i.e. you missed your alarm, your meeting ran late at work, etc.)

After my workout, I ran into Target to look for storage containers for my classroom. I’ve been looking everywhere for organizers with smaller drawers – lots of the three drawer organizers I have seen are much larger. These ones are perfect so I was excited to find them – it doesn’t take much to make a teacher excited! I am planning on using this organizer to store papers and resources that have been copied for the week: Monday, Tuesday, etc. so I will always know where to pull papers from at any time during a lesson.


–> If you have the Target Cartwheel app, all storage containers are currently 10% off!

Thanks for reading! Hope you’re having a WONDERFUL week so far!
