News and Fresh Starts

I started my weight loss blog! My goal is to lose 52 pounds in 52 weeks not by dieting, but by eating right, portioning, staying active and making the foods I love in a way that cuts sugar and fat. I'll write about what I eat, post recipes I try, track my progress, and hope to hear about your journey as well! Come follow Skinny or Bust! and share what you're doing to get/stay healthy.

I heard from the university today about the question I had with licensing. I am currently licensed in Early Childhood: Prek-2 for students with and without disabilities. In order to be licensed as a Reading Specialist, I must also be licensed in Elementary (through 6th grade) as well. I may be able to get my license after a few courses in the program, or I may need a few additional courses. But, by the time I am finished with my master's degree, I will hold two professional teaching licenses, an initial license for Reading Specialist, as well as my license for lead teacher preschool, infant/toddler. Whoa! I'm going to have a fun time keeping track of my professional development!

I am going to try to do a sewing project tomorrow. I told an old friend that I would make her daughter a plushy as a baby gift, but it has been months and it is still not done! Tomorrow, I am going to tackle that project...thinking about a mini bear in lavender polka dots. I also want to make at least one of the other animals I have been planning...what should I try first: koala, elephant, panda or zebra?

Have a great Thursday!


Thank you so much for visiting! I love to hear feedback!
