Life in Square Photos

It's been quite a bit since the last Life in Square photos and I'm not even going to try to play catch up on everything that has happened in the last month. Instead, I'll share just a few photos from the last couple of weeks that pretty much sum up what I've been up to.
Before I left for France, I wrote down step by step instructions for different parts of the projects as a visual reminder in addition to the paper handouts and my demonstrations. 
Kyle and I had a taco night which was one of the first meals we cooked together in the apartment. Of course, Kyle had to try some hot fries in his for a little something spicy and crunchy. 
We went over all the parts of a film camera with both levels of photography last week and I'm a little sad that I will have to erase these drawings soon. However, it was all too funny to see my class's and visitors' reactions when they saw the drawings and said things like "you should be an art teacher". I'm glad I've been able to incorporate what I've learned in college (and high school) into my tech ed classroom.  
On Friday, I took 37 high school students (with the aide of two other fabulous chaperones) to Longwood Gardens for an opportunity to take photos for upcoming projects. It was beautiful and we had the perfect weather for exploring the perfectly manicured foliage. Of course, as I was so worried about having film and charged batteries for the students, I forgot to charge my own camera battery. So, my camera died and I was stuck using my phone for the remainder of the day. But hey, the upsides are that we had great weather, the students were over the moon to share the photos they took throughout the day with me, and everyone had a fun day.   
My apartment is still very much in progress, however, my parents came by yesterday to teach Kyle and I how to properly hang things. You know, so they're straight and don't fall off the walls. So, here's a sneak peek of my partially styled bar cart. Interesting story about the bar cart, my mom found it sitting along the side of the road, took it home and sent me a picture of it. I immediately took to Pinterest for color ideas and realized how many bloggers have this exact cart-which made it so much more difficult to decide on paint. I actually didn't decide until mom and I were in the store and we kept going back and forth between neutrals before deciding gold and silver made the most sense for the pieces I would be putting on it. I can't wait to pull the rest of my apartment together and share it with you.
