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…

Christmas at Longwood Gardens

I hope everyone has gotten a good start to 2017! I was supposed to be back at work today, but on Thursday we found out that the school decided to give us the day off (since the holiday is observed today) so school resumes tomorrow. It’s going to be tough going back to work after…

Looking Back at 2016

I can’t believe it’s already New Year’s Eve! I feel like it was just yesterday – okay, not really yesterday, but you know what I mean – that we were all saying we couldn’t believe it was 2016 and now it’s about to be 2017. There are so many things I want to do in…

December 2016 Favorites

I tend to post my monthly favorites on the last day of a month or the very beginning of a new month, but seeing as how December is the last month of the year and tomorrow I’ll be looking back on 2016 as a whole I figured today I should talk about just December. My…

Hugs for Brady Holiday Light Show

Christmas may be over but I’m not done posting about it! Hugs for Brady is a non-profit foundation that helps children with cancer. They have a holiday light show going on so I really wanted to go because 1) I love Christmas lights and 2) It’s for a good cause. It took me 2 weeks due…
