Can you believe today is the last day of February?! Wow. My students earned a little reward. We're going to celebrate Justin Bieber's birthday by having Sprite, Sour Patch Kids, and Peeps.

I didn't go to work today. Personal day. I decided to take it off since my parents are here. It's so fun having family in-town!

After school, I had a school community council meeting with 30 parents regarding the safe walking route. It went very well, and no one left upset. I really hope we, the school community council, actually do and change something. If not, I will feel like all of our meeting really are pointless. There is nothing worse than being on a committee that just talks about stuff and never does anything.

I wore this Monday evening and then all day Tuesday. Wearing the same outfit two days in a row reminds me of summertime. I don't know about you, but it seems like I wear the same 5 articles of clothing all summer long. I kind of like it.

My inspiration for today's outfit came from Naomi's (rockstar diaries) blog; I've been reading her blog for a couple years now. I love this cardigan, but struggle with styling it. Anyway, I saw she just wore it like any other cardigan. So, that's what I decided to do.

I had to get back into "strict teacher" mode today. I have these two girls in my class that are BFFs--big time! They are so helpful and nice with me, but at recess and other times when they are away from me, they are not very nice to their fellow students. I have talked with their mothers, and after I do, they are good for a week or so. Any ideas of what I should do?? I think I am going to tell them that if I continue to hear from other students that they are not being nice, they will lose the privilege of going to recess or specialists. Arrrggghhh...

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy 99th Birthday to Arizona! It was such a fun day. Listened/sang to some Bieber with the kiddos, did math with conversation hearts, read Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch, had a little party, passed out valentines. All in all, I had a great day. Not to mention the night wrapped up with The Bachelor and a few dances on the Kinect. Hope you had a fabulous day as well!

Church. I know this skirt last Sunday, but last week was a big conference, so I didn't see anyone. Plus, I need to wear this skirt a few more times before it becomes spring. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. It's a fun day at school. I'm looking forward to it. Holidays are the best with kids.

Today, I felt my get-up looked a bit like this lady's. Tami Taylor is the leading lady in NBC's Friday Night Lights.

Wish I had her hair.
I think it was the boots. I LOVE Tami Taylor and her husband Coach Eric Taylor; I have a mega-crush on Coach. I'm legitimately sad that the show is done forever. No more Tim Riggins or Matt Saracen or Lyla Garrety. Man, what a quality show! If you haven't seen it, you should change that. You won't regret it. Here's the link that you can use to watch all the seasons and episodes. Or check out your local library; my library in AZ had seasons 1-4 on DVD.

Look at that line of demarkation! My roots are awful. I'm getting them fixed this weekend. Happy Valentine's Day to ME!
I finished 32 Third Graders and One Class Bunny by Phillip Done. I teared up at the end when he said goodbye to his class. To me, there's nothing more fulfilling than reading a book that makes you laugh or cry.

I need to get my hair done. My friends make fun of me because they think I get it done every other week. It's been over 8 weeks. I know I need to get my hair done because I only want to wear it in a ponytail or braid, which was just about every day last week. How frequently do you get your hair done?

feb. 7


I actually really like Mondays at school. The kids are on task because we have a lot to get ready for the week. Although, my kids have been way chatty the last week or so. I told them that we have to build a snowman puzzle in order to have a Valentine's Day party. To show that I meant business about the talking, I took away a couple pieces. They're really nervous. Don't worry, they'll get their party. I'm not THAT mean of a teacher.

Look at this mega bruise. I hit my thigh on the corner of my roommate's bed frame. I think I hit it right where everything comes together.

If you're a teacher or parent or anyone that has experienced Halloween with kids, you can totally relate to this. Hilarious!

I've been trying to find a way to wear this skirt. It's actually a very bright blue, almost Boise State blue. I think today's outfit turned out halfway descent.

I'm happy to report that the Arctic front is gone for the next little bit.

It was fun day in 3rd grade. We've been studying growing and repeating patterns. So today, I taught mine and my neighbor's class a line dance. The kids loved it, boys and girls. Plus, who doesn't feel like partying when Brooks & Dunn is jamming. It was great to get them moving because I knew they weren't going to be going outside for either recess today. (Look at temperature below.) My outfit isn't very appropriate for today's weather, but I couldn't pass up wearing some country gear.

Apparently it was -11 with the wind chill. Biting cold!

Happy February! I really like this cardigan, but I find it difficult to style. Do you have items like that? But, whatever, I went with it today. I feel like I'm getting in the mid-winter rut.

My waxing mishap is much, Much, MUCH better. You can hardly tell.
