My loves right now...

I love watching Flipping Out and The Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo.
I love Thursday night with Jordan. They've become somewhat of a date night!
I love my new cell phone and hands free set.
I love It really helps keep me honest when logging what I ate for the day.
I love that my mom is coming to visit soon! I wish Dan, Court, and KK were coming too!

on a good note....

School is in full swing! I am happy to be back to my same school in my same classroom. This year I have 20 kids that range from 4 to 5 yrs old. There is exactly 10 boys and 10 girls and I am stoked to have this bunch of leg huggers. Although, they are making me work for my money- I will tell you, it's been a smooth start. This year, I am going to focus on being "green", teaching was sustaining aloha truly means, and well...reading. Last year, my focus was on different things and I feel changing it every year keeps things fun. Also, I will be doing a collaboration with the drama teacher at our school. We will be creating 8 lessons for the kids using drama integration and language arts. It's going to be quite spiffy! So far this year we've had lots of laughs, some tears, and I'm happy to say no phone calls phone yet for unnecessary behavior.  I will keep you posted with what's happening in Rm B-104 :)

say cheese (an oldie but goodie!)

New addition to the O'Connor Office team

She can direct your calls, fax, type 200 words per minute, use any gadget apple makes with a touch screen, and stick it to the man by screaming at the top of her lungs.

sleepy head

She's just comfy that way! I love her! Our puppy dog- Sophie!

"pudge pudge" and "big fat toe" weird pet names with a funny story behind them!

I've been inspired

Ok, I started this blog back in 2008, but I just left it alone because life took over my time. Then, my sister in law (Courtney) started a very cute blog for her daughter. When I would sign in to check out her blog I kept thinking to myself that I need to work on mine, but I logged into my Facebook instead. Just recently, my dear friend June made one for her and her hubby. I love it! And so, all that has motivated me to get my blog up and running for good. Not only that but I'm slowly realizing that Facebook is turning out to be a real ugly thing in certain ways. So, I am going to put my energy towards this blog for my close friends and family to keep in touch with.
