First Blogger Collaboration!

Hey, y’all! I am so excited to say that this post involves another lovely lady from our WordPress community! We are both pretty new to the scene, and were already friends from college before starting our blogs! We decided to hang out yesterday and do a photo together while talking about upcoming collaborations! 

Emily of The Muse’s Melody and I went over to Ellis Island for some coffee and sweets first thing Saturday morning. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s in Downtown Edmond on Broadway, and it’s delicious! The morning was cool and overcast, making it the perfect day for a steaming cup! I had a pumpkin pie latte and tiramisu, while Emily went for the iced mocha. My latte had all the pumpkin pie goodness without being as syrupy as Starbucks! It’s okay, Starbs! I still love you! πŸ˜‰

Whoops! I was so excited that I forgot to take a pic until after I drank it! πŸ˜‚
Here is the photo that our lovely barista took of us!

Her red dress with the leather jacket totally shows off her trendy, alternative style! I just love her look! I went with a less preppy look than usual, because I was in the mood for something a little more…hip? I guess? I also branched out a bit from my usual favorite designers while keeping some (Kendra Scott and Brooks Brothers) in my outfit! Change can be fun! Here’s who I’m wearing: 
Shirt: Ambiance Apparel (I grab many of my basic t-shirts at Ross!)

Cardi: Jody (found at a western shop in Stockyards City!)

Jeans: Levi’s

Booties: Clark’s

Hat: Brooks Brothers

Necklace: Kendra Scott

Watch: Fossil

Not featured: Cream Fossil bag

We had a great time, and look forward to collaborating in the future! It is so fun for us to be new together!! Please go check her out and follow her blog:

Have a great rest of your weekend! See you tomorrow!

Welcome to Glitter and Grades!

Hello, y’all! Welcome to my first blog post! I am starting this blog as a bit of a fresh start. I tried blogging on another domain, but I didn’t really take it anywhere, and it grew stagnant. I guess I wrongly believed that nobody really wanted to hear what I had to say. My confidence has grown since then, both as a writer and a person. My husband has always believed in my blogging capabilities, and he loves it when I write, as do I. So, here I am!

Glitter and Grades is a blog about the lifestyle of a teacher, graduate student, wife, and dog mommy. Do not expect all of my posts to be lesson plans or teacher tips, because I like to write about my ENTIRE life, even the one my students don’t see every day. There will be teacher goodies, grad school hacks, recipes, fashion posts, beauty tips, and restaurant reviews, just to name a few. I am blessed to live a diverse and eclectic life, and this blog will reflect that. “They” say to stick with a more streamlined topic for a successful blog, but that is just not who I am! #ENFPprobs

So thank you for taking the time to read my introductory post! I hope to meet many other awesome bloggers through this experience, and to learn a little more about life. I am not giving up this time, so this is a just a glimpse of what y’all will see on this website! I’m so excited to get started and to meet you!
