Happy Friday!!! Yesterday afternoon we got wind of a winter storm that was quickly approaching. Because we haven’t gotten any snow this year and the storm hit during the morning commute, we have a
We haven’t gotten much yet and it should only accumulate to 5-8 inches but it’s heavy heavy snow. I’m having mixed emotions about the snow day. I was really looking forward to going to my technology conference and since I wasn’t going to be at my school anyway, it’s bittersweet. We are already scheduled to go late into June this school year and I hate to shorten the summer anymore. BUT, Nolan is working from home today so I am excited to enjoy the day with him.
There are lots of little things I wanted to share today so I decided to throw them all together into some fun facts.
1 What I’m watching- Just Jillian. Do you know this show exists?!
It’s no secret that I LOVE Jillian Michaels and I was devastated when she parted ways with The Biggest Loser. I have her book Mastering Your Metabolism and I read it once or twice a year. She also has hypothyroidism so I see her as a god-like creature. Anyway, the show is about her and her family which is something she has always been secretive about. If you like Jillian, it’s a must watch on E!
There are many perks to being married to Nolan but one of the best is his nerd brain. I wouldn’t DREAM of buying a piece of technology without consulting him first because he always has the scoop on what’s best. For Christmas, he got me an incredible pair of wireless bluetooth headphones that are INCREDIBLE. I am obsessed. If you are in the market, they are called Bluedio R+ Legend and they make Beats by Dre sound like earbuds. Plus, they are blue and shiny.
3. What I’m currently reading- “Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?” And Other Conversations About Race. In the school district I work for, there are 3 classes you have to take within your first 3 years of teaching. Next week I am starting one that talks about diversity in the classroom and this is the book we are using.
4. I am honestly still debating whether I will watch the Superbowl or not. It’s funny, around here it definitely seems like football season is 100% over because we are all in denial that the Patriots won’t be playing on Sunday.
What sparked the spree was my wonderful husband somehow ripping a massive hole in our down comforter while making the bed. It looked like we murdered 1000 unsuspecting chickens. Feathers everywhere. So I ran to TJMAXX with a gift card and found a bed set I really liked. We were also in desperate need of a new laundry hamper, since the one we were using had been with us since college and had wires sticking out of it that cut me every time I did laundry. Then on my way out I found this love canvas on clearance for $12 and it found its way into my cart. 😉
6. Slowly but surely getting faster!
Ok, I’m gunna make some hot cocoa ! Enjoy the day.
