Winter Break!

Hey y'all! It's Kourtney blogging from Mrs. Payton's Precious Kindergartners!  If you're like me, you've made it to Winter Break!

I was like this on Thursday:

Because on Friday...I did this:

That's right, I graduated with my Master's! I have been a busy bee for the past year and a half and with the first half of the school year over, I am going to spend the next two weeks RELAXING!

Here's how I plan to relax and recharge before school starts back:

Get a mani and a pedi!  Nothing makes me feel more relaxed than getting pampered.  Taking a few hours away from my family for just me is usually just what I need to feel relaxed and recharged.

Head to the gym!  If you think that's not relaxing...go! I love group fitness y'all! There's nothing like a few hours in some of my favorite classes to leave my feeling stress free! I adore Zumba, Sh'Bam, Body Step, Body Attack, Body Pump, and Body Vive. I intend to go to as many classes as I can over the break :) 

Sleep in!  Anyone else get up at 5 or 6am?  I fully intend to spend some time in my 1500 thread count sheets catching up on my zzzs! 

Take a bubble bath! No, this is not my bathroom...but seriously, I'll try to make it as relaxing as possible! 


I have plans to spend time with my family, do lots of fun stuff for Christmas, clean and organize several things, and catch up on blogging and Teachers Pay Teachers stuff, but I know doing these 4 things will make me feel totally relaxed and recharged.

What are you going to do to relax and recharge over the break? Leave a comment and let everyone know so we can do it too! :)  Enjoy your break!


  1. I'm having my friend and her girls over, and we're going Christmas caroling at the nursing home. I plan to do some reading and LOTS of sleeping! Merry Christmas. Have a wonderful break.

  2. CONGRATS on graduating! You deserve all 5 of the things listed above and so much more my friend! Closets are calling my name...but I may just 'silence' them and just cuddle up with my cuties!! Have a great break!

    1. Yessssss! I need to do my closets too! I guess I'll see if I have time to do them in the midst of all the others haha :) Merry Christmas friend!

  3. Congrats Kourtney! I hope you get to do everything on your relaxing list! I'm with you on the mani/padi. After I cleaned up on Friday I went straight to the nail salon!!!
    ...and just think about how good you will sleep knowing you are done with your Masters!! EEeek!!
