Oh what fun! Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics is hosting a totally unique Linky Party: "Looky in My Lunchbox Linky."
I am a girl who loves to eat and talk about food, so I had to join! Tara is also giving away this CUTE lunchbox from Thirty-One, so be sure to join the fun!
So here is a picture of my lunchbox. Other teachers have asked me if it is a Thirty-One bag....nope! I found this at Target - though my teacher bag is from Thirty-One.
Here is what I had for lunch today!
I am nearly 8 months pregnant, so I am TRYING to eat healthy - though I often fail. I have been ordering adult lunches from our school cafeteria because they are cheap, healthy, and pretty darn tasty!! Today I had a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant. I also packed myself an avocado, an orange, fresh strawberries, cranberry juice, a cookie, and pudding. Not going to lie... my lunch did not stop there. I had more in my lunchbox, but I was too embarrassed to take it all out at once in front of my co-workers, haha! They already thought I was a weirdo for taking a picture of my lunch!!
So Tara asked a few questions in her Linky Party. Here are my answers:
No, we do not eat lunch with our students - THANK GOODNESS! I love my kiddos, but geez... we all need a break!
Our lunch / recess break is from 11:00am - 11:50am (primary grades, K - 2nd). We are fortunate to enjoy that entire 50 minutes, unless we have to "serve" our weekly lunchroom duty for the first 15 minutes OR if we have to "serve" a recess duty (a few times a year). Oh yeah and on inclement weather days, we have to keep our kids.
I used to eat by myself in my classroom, so I could get work done... but somewhere down the line - probably by the start of my third year of teaching - I realized it is important for me to take a "brain break," take a few deep breaths, talk with my colleagues in the teachers' lounge, and actually EAT!
Well, that was fun! Thanks, Tara, for hosting such a cook Linky Party! And thanks to YOU for stopping by! :)
