and...we're back (mar. 17)

So, my computer isn't completely restored. I still don't have iPhoto. Anyone have an iLife software cd that they'd let me use? I just don't want to go spend the $$ to buy it when I used to have it; I may just have to, though. I'm posting via iPhone and email; therefore, I am not doing a mega post. I'll do one at a time. Slowly but surely...

This was my outfit for parent/teacher conferences and St. Patrick's day. So festive.
top: h&m (april 2010)
cardigan: j crew outlet (march 2010)
belt: BR outlet (march 2010)
skirt: anthro scalloped sailor skirt (may 2010)
shoes: mia gigi in mushroom (february 2010)

Friends and I had a little St. Patty's party. Here's the spread...

technical difficulties

My computer crashed last weekend, so I'm still in the process of setting it back up. (Luckily, I did backup my files before it died.) I have been taking outfit pictures. As soon as everything is restored, I will do a mega post.
Enjoy your weekend!

I got this necklace at the end of the summer for $10. I really like it, but I do not know how to wear. If you have any ideas, send them my way. I have worn it one other time here. I have parent teacher conferences tomorrow. Instead of doing individual conferences, we're doing an open house walking report card, which will be so much better.

Day 2 of the ponytail and braided bangs. :) I think I have said this before, but these AG Stevie cords are THE.MOST.COMFORTABLE pants ever. That's why I now have 2 pairs; I have to wait for them to take a 2nd cut sale price at Anthropologie.

necklace: BR outlet (summer 2010)
pants: anthro ag stevie cords navy (february 2011)

I was so elated that Brad chose Emily in last night's Bachelor! (I want to be a beautiful Southern belle like Emily is. And she totally knows how to rock the safari chic!) Did anyone else think the After the Final Rose was interesting? I was confused. I think I need to watch it again.

My hair ended up in a ponytail five minutes after I got to school. This skirt is so comfortable. I am hoping to get a couple more wears out of it before it gets too warm; it is soft corduroy. Funny story about this shirt. I live in a different state than my family. I purchased it at the F21 by me. When I went home a couple months later, I saw in my little sister's closet that she had it as well. Great minds think alike!

Oh, and here is a picture my roommate took of me leaving the grocery store. She loved that I am trying to help out the planet with my reusable bags, haha. (Did you notice the Scholastic one? That was a surprise in my last book order.) No, I'm just used to using these bags from when I lived in DC for a summer. Anyway, the point of the picture is to show you HOW bright my blue J Crew skirt is from this and this outfit.

Church. I fell in love the moment I saw this dress on Anthro's site. The Antho by my home in AZ had it, so I was able to try it on so that the second it went on sale I'd know my size. I have been waiting to wear it, and today was a lovely winter/spring morning. As you can tell, my mom and I altered the dress a bit. We took off the flowers and added the lace. It was too low for my comfort. I like how it turned out.

Today was the 3rd grade spelling bee. The winner wasn't from my class. Bummer. After one of my students got out, her dad came over to me and told me that her word was harder than what the other kids out. Oh well! I don't choose the words. My gosh. This complaint didn't surprise me coming from him.
Ok, I'm going to post where my outfit is from. That's one of my favorite things on other blogs I look at.
cardigan: AE (summer 2008)

mar. 10

There's my big school bag. It's great.
I can feel spring in the air. I know there will be a few more snow and rain storms, but it's ok because the worst is over.
I have stopped posting where I purchased my clothes. I figure that you where I shop. If you want to know where something is from, just leave me a comment and I'll tell you. :)

mar. 9

I was stoked beyond belief when I FINALLY located a pair of these boots. I have called who knows how many Anthro stores looking for these boots. Another bonus: I got 10% off and waived shipping. Sweet! So, I only paid $55 for these. Too bad spring is nearly here, but I can hardly wait for next winter. :)

mar. 8

I love when I wake up in the morning to find my hair isn't as greasy as I thought it would be. Add a little powder...and...viola!
I found another way to wear this bright blue skirt. Yay!

mar. 7

Sorry, the internet has been out most of the week.
I know I wore a similar outfit a week and half ago, but I loved it so much that I could hardly wait to wear it again.

Today was the first day with my student teacher. I forget how much time she takes away from my prep. Wow, by the time school was over, I hadn't done anything that usually I am able to do. It takes a couple days to get her settled. But she gets going, I'll get some more down time when she starts teaching lessons. My class earned the Bieber party. They were stoked.

I changed into my comfy clothes before I took the outfit pic. I was wearing a black pencil skirt with my black JS Dafa shoes. I met my student teacher this afternoon. She seems cute and like she will be good.

It's March! I always forget how quickly February passes. Today was not a good day. Oh man, I received an email from a lady in the district that made me so livid, frustrated, and annoyed. In fact, I had to leave as soon as I could. Sometimes I wonder if the people in the district office don't have enough things to do. My class didn't earn the Bieber birthday party; they were too chatty and disobedient. Maybe we'll celebrate later on this week.

book reports

My students did these cereal box book reports. They loved them! You can do this report for books, explorers, states, etc. If you'd like the template, leave a comment with your email address.
