Another month and no new post...Wow!  I really am a GREAT blogger, huh?
So to catch you up on life...
  • Finished the 3rd grade maternity leave.  I really loved it and so enjoyed being back in the classroom.  I have a week or 2 off before the next maternity leave starts.  I'll enjoy getting to spend some time with Wes (who has still not gone back to work. UGH!)
  • The Job Fair I went to a few weeks ago was not too promising.  I was really hoping I would have gotten a good feeling about getting a job here next year.  But, that wasn't the case.  There were  hundreds of people there for maybe a dozen jobs.  
  • There is a rumor around the school I am subbing at that there may be a sixth grade position open next year.  I would LOVE to get that, but as any of you who are teachers or work in schools know, you can't always believe what you hear. FINGERS CROSSED!
  • I have started posting a few OOTD pictures on Twitter.  It is definitely out of my comfort zone.  I am not always the most trendy dresser.  In college, my friends would make fun of me for dressing like a teacher to go to the bar.  And I sometimes dress more like a 45 year old mom, not a 28 year old newlywed.  Follow me on Twitter to see (click on the button on my sidebar), you just have to promise not to laugh!
  • I am loving the fact that it's finally warming up and I can wear sandals!  I need to rotate my closet and get some of my Spring/Summer cloths out of storage.  I'm going to try to not overspend on new clothes and just work with what I already have.  It'll be hard.  I have already seen so much at Anthro that I want!
  • Wes and I have been doing P90x for about 3 weeks now.  He seems to think he can already tell a difference in his clothes. Damn, men...  But, I can actually do a real push-up now!  That's a definite improvement!  I'm going to stick it out and hope to see some results before I put this flabby body in a bathing suit!  
Sorry for the long post and no pictures.  I left my computer at my mom's last week and am using Wes's so I don't have any of my pictures.


  1. I'm following you on Twitter now! ;)

  2. New follower...found you from your comment on Annie's blog! Is it bad that I thought your pc was cute so I clicked over...haha! Can't wait to keep reading! I work in a middle school and wow do thngs fly abotu openign at this time of the year. I hope you can get that position!

  3. YAY! So, how bad is P90X? I'd like to try but I honestly think I might die after day 1...

    And keep your ears open about teaching jobs. Also know that sometimes teachers quit last minute so jobs open up later than you might think, so keep checking their websites. Also, does your state use job bank? Ours does and it posts teaching jobs for the whole state, as does the state board of education website!

    Hope you get something!!
