Positively Positive Post

Tonight's post is about things that made me happy today-namely, my date with Mr. P, an new monogrammed item, and a new recipe!

Mr. P and I weren't able to go out and celebrate our anniversary on Monday, so we decided to celebrate it last night. We went to see the movie Fireproof, and what a great movie it was! If you haven't heard about the movie, it is produced by the church that produced the movie Facing the Giants. Kirk Cameron stars in Fireproof as a fireman trying to save his marriage, and it has a powerful message about love and marriage. It was a great choice for an anniversary date, and I highly recommend seeing it.

New monogrammed item alert! I bought this toile tote at an education conference a few years ago, and I've been using it as my school bag since the spring. I love the black and white lining inside, and it has a lot of pockets and compartments to hold all my stuff.

Recently, I've been thinking about getting it monogrammed. We have a lady who does all of the embroidering and monogramming for our school spirit items, and she happened to come into school this morning. I showed her my bag and asked her about monogramming it, and she said she would be glad to do it. So I emptied my bag, gave it to her, and told her there was no rush in getting it back to me. Imagine my surprise when she brought it back to me this afternoon! Here is the finished product:

I thought she did a great job on it, and I am thrilled with it.

I was browsing through my cookbooks on Saturday and came across a cookbook that I had bought last year and promptly forgotten about.

As I looked through the cookbook, I realized that there were several great looking recipes that I wanted to try. So I've decided to try one new recipe a week, and tonight's recipe was Green Chile Burritos. It turned out great! It was really quick and easy to put together too, so that made it even better. I'll keep you posted on the new recipe each week.

Have a great evening everyone!

When I taught school, I had to have a new 'school bag' every year. They varied from Polo to one of those cool bags from Harrod's in London. Sometimes I even changed mid-year :) I like yours very much.

Your bag is fabulous! Any chance you could share how to own one of my very own? Do you have any contact information?

I am a teacher and my Vera bag is starting to look a little sad.

Thanks ~
