Anastasia on Broadway

I’m back to work today after a week off for spring break and I may or may not have been super down about it last night… In any case, I’m back today to talk about the Broadway musical – Anastasia! So Anastasia was one of my favorite movies as a kid and I was going to…

Perfectly Imperfect

Sometimes, or oftentimes, we may feel pressure to strive for perfection. Especially these days with social media it is easy to feel like we always need to be perfect. What I mean by perfect is always having it together, looking fabulous at all times, and doing a stellar job in all aspects of life and beyond….

March 2017 Favorites

Happy April! That’s right, somehow it’s already April and I’m still double-checking that I write down 2017 when I write the date. So with the end of a month and the beginning of another I’m back with my March favorites. My favorites for March are a little all over the place, but I guess it’s symbolic…

Photo Challenge: It IS Easy Being Green

Green is my favorite color as many of you who regularly follow me on here already know. With the start of spring, we’re starting to see a lot more green so last week’s photo challenge “It IS Easy Being Green” seemed timely. I really wanted to use Easter basket grass, but I didn’t get to…

This Winter

The past 2 days I’ve been home since school’s been closed due to snow/ice days. For those of you who are new to Life According to Jamie, my full time/day job is teaching. While I was off, I browsed through my phone and saw that I had quite a few short videos from this winter…

Date Night Idea with Turo

People are often asked what their ideal date night is, but I’m not sure there is one ideal date night. I think there are lots of different things you can do and it really depends on the season and your mood. Maybe it’s the dead of winter and you don’t feel like braving the cold so…

International Women’s Day

As many of you may know it is Women’s History Month this month and today is International Women’s Day. I know there is a movement today for women to stay home from work for “A Day Without a Woman”. Unfortunately, I can’t take off because I have parent/teacher conferences today which means not just a…

February 2017 Favorites

I’m finding it hard to believe that it’s already March. How are we already into our 3rd month of 2017?? Alas, we are and I’ve rounded up some of the things I loved in February to share with you. The Super Bowl was early in February and while the game was exciting (though I would’ve…

Love is Love is Love

“Love is love” is a saying we hear a lot lately and without sounding repetitive, I love it. We hear it a lot lately because of all the social issues and injustices going on in the country and world and at the end of the day it’s important to remember that love is love no…

My First Trip to Top Golf

Top Golf may not be new to some of you but the first one in New Jersey just recently opened so it’s new to me. I’d heard of it for a long time now because I knew of its existence in other states. If you’re unfamiliar with Top Golf it is a place for golf…

January 2017 Favorites

It sounds so weird to say (January) 2017 favorites! I can’t believe we’ve already gone through a month of the year already. Although at the same time this month has been so tiring with work and the daily chaos going on in the country. But let’s talk about something happy like things that put a…

Cozy Winter Day

I’ve had in my blog planner/calendar for weeks to do a post on cozy winter day activities/things I like to do, tentatively set for today. As fate would have it yesterday was the perfect day to document some cozy cold weather activities because it was cold and snowy. It didn’t snow much, but it was…
