Iced Coffee & Life Update

I've definitely drank my fair share of iced coffee and iced latte's this summer! We have the cutest hipster coffee shop in town and their Iced Latte's are to die for. Speaking of coffee places, our town is also getting a "Common Grounds" which is a well known coffee shop in Waco TX and I am freaking out!

However, let's talk life. I feel like I haven't shared much about life on here recently so here's an update. First off, I rescued a kitten + now kind of adopted him (full on catlady + cat mom mode). Went on 5 camping trips this summer with my family & I actually got tan at the beach and lake (not sure how I feel about it). Read a few books, taught two sewing classes & a dance camp, went on a road trip, visited family, hung out with friends, and watched a lot of TV show!

With that being said however, I am now in my last semester of college and this fall and will be doing student teaching, which means I will be in the classroom with students for 14 weeks. Student teaching is basically like being a full time teacher without getting paid, so as of next Tuesday its full on teacher mode!

While I am excited about student teaching, my semester is going to be pretty busy, which means the blog will be put on the back burner for bit. That doesn't mean I won't be blogging, but I will probably be posting less (which will be hard). I've gotten into a good rhythm this year with the blog and I am pretty proud of the content that I have created and posted, so to cut back will be a stretch.

What does this really mean for Minnie Muse? I am hoping to use part of my weekends for blog work, taking photos, editing, and creating content. However, with that, I will probably still only post once a week for now. Honestly, I have begun to realize how time consuming blogging truly is:) You might think that it takes less than an hour to put a post together but combining the time it takes for a photo shoot, plus choosing pictures, editing them, writing a post, and adding links it can be close to a 3 hour process or more! Therefore, while it's hard to accept that the blog can't be my top priority rest assured that I will not disappear!

I feel like there's more that I need to include in this post, but its already getting long :) so I  you all had a great summer and best wishes to the rest of the year or your new semester!

  1. Love this outfit Madison, that color looks so great on you. It sounds like you had an awesome summer, and a busy final semester in front of you! We totally understand your reigning in the blog a little, I'll still be looking forward to every post! :)

  2. Girl, you do what you need to do! Blogging really is time consuming, but it's so fun to do, too! I'm in the same spot, where I'm having to put it on the back burner for a bit but also missing it at the same time. But it's so much better not to have to stress and to keep priorities in the proper order. Good luck with student teaching! You can do it!

  3. Best of luck with your last semester, Madison! Totally understand your needing to take a break/cut back; you have to do what's best for you. We'll all be just as excited for the weekly posts as we were for the more frequent ones. (ps this outfit is so cute! It's a bit different from what we're used to seeing you in, but I feel like the bright yellow (and coffee of course!) is totally on brand. Love it!)

  4. I love your yellow striped shirt. Good luck with your final semester.

  5. Awesome photos you look adorable and very Happy. Hope you enjoy your student teaching time. Good luck I hope it all is fum and exciting for you.Stephanie

  6. Awe so excited you are a cat mom! I want to get another kitten! And yes I agree with you blogging is so time consuming!
