good morning!

good morning friends!
i am NOT a morning person and my body has decided that 6 am is our new wake up time! Seriously? I do not have to be at school until 8:50 so I leave my apartment at 8:30 (yes I love my job!) I am hoping this is just a phase because well I don't like it! ha ha....

today is observation day! I am being observed by one of the members of my resident teacher committee. it's not that bad but the woman who is observing me has NO idea what my students, school, job are like. at our last meeting she wanted me to not allow my students to enter the room without a pencil or paper ummmmm TITLE 1 SCHOOL (everyone is broke!) i would have no students in my class for that one.

well i'm off to make use of this early morning time. doing what i can't tell you but something productive!

as a sidenote i've started reading a new MUST read. It's called Broken by Shy Keenan and WOW. I read for an hour last night and could have finished the whole thing last night. You must read but it's very sad. Shy grew up neglected, almost blind & deaf before elementary school due to her repeated beatings by her mom, her stepdad and his friends used her as a sex toy and that's just the first 100 pages.

new obsession

I spent today running some errands and then having some quality time for myself. what did i do you might wonder? i got a mani/pedi! my new salon has this new product from opi that i'm loving! it's the axxium gel nail kit, anyone heard of it? I love having gel nails instead of acrylics but they still mess up my nails well in this case the nail polish is in gel form! my nails are shiny and feel super protected with no tips, or damage (at least not yet!) This is supposed to help the color last for at least two weeks, so I'll keep you updated!

sick puppy....

Tucker and I had a houseguest tonight my little cousin Miss. Boo. Well Tucker has been having toxic tushie all night which is what we call bad farts (sorry guys!) and well I woke up around 2 deciding to try and make him go outside only to be surprised in the living room. The poor guy got sick a few times and after I took him outside to walk him at 2 am in the cold he wanted to play. Now I'm up worrying about my precious baby while he's asleep under the covers and snoring.

winter cleaning

I just did a MASSIVE clean out of my closet and dresser but now the question is what do I do with the stuff? Some of the stuff isn't fantastic and some of the stuff is designer! I know that some people have been linking their blog to ebay, selling directly from the blog or I could just say screw it and take it to the resale shop but that takes too long! Any suggestions?

Giving gifts....

I recently participated in a pink swap! Hopsy at Monograms & Manicures hosted this lovely swap. The rules were everything had to be pink, at least 4 items and it couldn't cost more than $35. I'm definitely tooting my own horn here when I show you what I purchased for this swap. I purchased all of these cute and fabulous items for my swap partner for LESS than $35. I won't lie I LOVE giving gifts and tend to go overboard with the number of items but not the price. I am a bargain hunter to the extreme and I have a gift closet. Nothing in the closet is a gift from someone else but I know the few friends I like to purchase birthday, chanukah, or just to send a sussy (surprise present!) I also like having a few items on hand in case I need a housewarming gift or oops I forgot it was someone's birthday dinner tonight. Do you have a gift closet? Do you think it's a good or bad idea?

As a sidenote I have school tomorrow so I should go to bed! Samantha I hope you aren't reading this blog and if you are don't look below because here's what I just mailed out to you!
