Well I'm off--haha, I wish!

But for all of you who are traveling this weekend here are helpful tips to remember!

Happy 1st Birthday KR!

It has been such a fun year having a little girl to dress up! And in a few short months she'll have a little sister and we'll have twice the fun!

Good freaking H! I've been out of high school for ten years!

My ten year reunion was last week and I almost didn't go, but I'm glad I did. It was fun to catch up with everyone who came. 

There were less then a hundred of us to graduate from Queen Creek High School in 2003--back when Queen Creek mainly consisted of Circle K. 

Here's hoping we look this good in ten more years!

One of my students has gone on and on and on about how his parents have this food truck and they sell waffles and they're delicious. They came to school last week and gave all the teachers a waffle--a very Christ like act.

Oh my goodness! They are delicious! 
Every bite was a like eating a little piece of heaven...oh just thinking about it...! Check out their website and keep an eye out for their pink truck--you will not be disappointed!

As an English Literature major I fully appreciate the ability to BS your way through...almost everything.

Oh yes! English Lit majors have majored in...well we've proven we can BS our way through a 20 page paper on crazy topics that only become interesting after hours of research--or let's be honest a weeks worth of research and one very long night!

After passing out a narrative essay assignment to 100+ seventh graders in the last few days...I am very grateful for the BSing talent I do possess. Now if only my seventh graders would learn to coherently BS their way through a paper!

I may or may not have just ordered this sweet print for myself! Oh who am I kidding, I did just buy it!

I've watched a lot of football this year but this is by far the coolest things I've seen this year!
