Much needed Vacation

So the past couple of weeks have been kind of crazy with school ending and all that. But over the past few days things have been pretty good. I love the fact that I have made it through my first year teaching first grade and it has been so amazing! I love the girls that I work with and I have enjoyed the kids. I'm nervous about beginning another year but I am so thrilled to have the next month off! After Tuesday I am free to hang out by the pool and do absolutely nothing!

So this week my roommate Jodi and I were quite active. We went down to Herriman Days and walked around to all the booths and watched the fireworks. Lately we have been talking about planning a trip to somewhere. So...of course I decided to look into cheap cruises. And I found a really cheap cruise to the Bahamas. We were thrilled and instead of just talking about it and thinking that would be cool...we booked it! So we are headed to Florida/Bahamas for 3-4 days in October during one of my track breaks! So if anyone wants to join us let me know!!!

To cut or not to cut?

So I have been trying to grow my hair out for a while now. However, I swear my hair can't or won't grow beyond a certain length! And then I get that feeling that I just want to cut it all off! Right now my hair is a little bit passed my shoulders and layered.

Then as I was watching So You Think You Can Dance I saw Kherington and her cute haircut and I just loved it. I don't think I want to go as short as her haircut and of course I would stay a brunette but isn't it a cute cut. She has it kind of flipped out in the picture but basically it is an A-Line cut. Tori Spelling's hair cut is kind of the same. Still a little shorter than I want to go but I love how she has it curly. So my question is, Should I cut it or not? I am always worried to cut it too short because I don't want my face to look fat or anything! So please vote in my poll and let me know what you think!

So the worst thing ever has happened! Ok so I'm being a little over dramatic but it still sucks! Today was a pretty good day until I remembered that a few girls from work and myself had signed up to take a class today. I had so much to do to get ready for camp week and now leaving early had me a little frazzled. So (here comes the bad part) I left my phone at work! I know, horrible right?? I mean I have no way to contact people and even if I had a home phone, I know absolutely nobody's phone numbers! Sorry guys!

Medical Mysteries

If anyone is looking into becoming an elementary teacher I have a word of advice for you! Make sure your shots are updated!!!! LOL :) No seriously! After having taught for over 4 years now you would think that I have a pretty dang good immune system built up. And I thought the same thing until recently!
I'm not sure if it is my recent move from teaching third grade to first but I swear I have been exposed to some pretty wierd, awful, and disturbing things! I can't help but laugh when I think of some of the things parents have told me that their child has contracted! I've had students with chicken pox, lice, rashes, colds, and so much more. But today was the topper!
I had a parent call the school today and tell me that her child has hand, foot, and mouth disease! Which consists of rashes and sores on your feet, hands, and your mouth! Now I won't show you any pictures but...YUCK! And yes, you'd better believe that it is highly contagious! Now I am so paranoid. I think I have washed my hands 20 or more times today! Oh and you'd better believe we cleaned the heck out of our desks and I made the kids wash their hands a ton too! I so hope that no other kids get it. And most of all, I had better not get it! My immune system better be ready!!

K so I know I've already posted a lot today but I thought these were so cute. And hey why spend your money on buying a stuffed animal, a pillow, and a blanket when you can buy all in one! Here's the cute lion!

Stuffed Pet



Isn't he cute? You can also get lots of other animals! I believe they are called "Zoobie Pets".

Happy Graduation Day!

I cannot believe that tonight Donny graduates. I mean he just seems so little still! And it will be wierd to ever think of my parents as empty nesters! I am excited for this next part of Donny's life. I wish he was still coming up here but I know he will do amazing things in Fresno. And who else it going to keep Brittany company! Congrats Donny!

Who comes up with these things??

So I'm not a huge brownie person but the reason for this is that I absolutely hate trying to get them out of the pan. Because then by the time the brownie has finally made it to your plate it looks like a big pile of crap! So if you are like me and share this problem, check this out.
