Happy Valentine's Day!

Last year I "borrowed" these beauties and this year's valentines were Hunger Games themed. Find them here

Today was a pretty traditional Valentine's Day in the world of me. I woke up single. I wore an obnoxiously awesome shirt to school/work. (I was the coolest teacher at school today!)

Valentine's were given and received. Candy was eaten. More candy was eaten. Free RedBox movies were rented. Chocolate milk and chinese food were consumed. Trashy tv was watched and I snuggled in bed still single.

The only thing that upset me today was the fact that it wasn't Friday yet! Vacation is so close...I can't wait!

What People Do When it Snows

Back in college I was a sociology major for a semester or two. If I remember correctly, sociology is the study of social behavior?

Today I woke up super early despite having the day off of school. I decided I should prepare for this mega storm and headed to the grocery store. Here is what I discovered...

With the impending storm, people exhibit certain habits. They run to the store and buy cans of tuna, baking supplies, prepared meals, packaged cold cuts, apples, and bread. I get it. You can make tuna or PB sandwiches, eat apples and cookies all with no power.

People also buy bags of candy, chicken, ice cream, frozen pizza, yogurt (especially Chobani) and cookie dough. I guess blizzard is code for binge-fest. With the exception of raw chicken and frozen pizza, you can just nom it all if the power goes out.

Also I found this:
I don't really know what to say about this.

I've never understood the whole buying milk thing. If the power goes out, it will be one of the first things to go bad. This guy really needed his milk and bread though.

Pretty much every New Englander.

I also don't really understand the gas thing...unless it's gas for a generator? Why gas up a car you won't be able to drive? The first gas station I drove by HAD NO GAS LEFT. It was like the f'ing apocalypse. Luckily I live in a tiny town and my local gas station had gas and looked like this:

So I now have a full tank of gas (for what I'm not sure), some cereal, Cheez-its, and Clif Bars. I'm excited about the prospect of thunder snow but I already have cabin fever. Let's just hope it's light, fluffy snow that is easy to shovel.


Live Action Blogging: BLIZZARD!!!

Thursday 6:00 pm - OMG why isn't school cancelled tomorrow??

Thursday 7:30 pm - Crisis averted, SNOW DAY! I'm going to sleep forever!


Friday 6:30 am - I'm awake. Why am I awake?

Friday 8:20 am - Guess I better "prepare" for this storm somehow. What does that even mean? Gas up the car? Groceries? Take the snow brush out of the car?

Friday 8:45 am - Groceries...check. Gas...station EMPTY.

Friday 11:00 am - It's what?

Friday 2:00 pm - Watching 4 episodes of The Bachelor seems like a great idea.

Friday 2:05 pm - GIRLS ARE CRAZY!

Friday 3:30 pm - Driving is BANNED in the state of Massachusetts. Guess I'm not going anywhere ever again.

Friday 4:00 pm - One of my third graders finds and follows my Instagram. DEFCON 5.

Friday 4:14 pm - Crisis averted.

Friday 5:00 pm - I should probably charge my phone or something.

Friday 6:00 pm - OMG SOOOOO ANTSY!


And not the Dairy Queen kind.

Guess where I live?

I don't even know what to do with myself. Fill up the car that I won't be able to drive? Buy groceries I won't be able to cook if the power goes out?

And I was wide awake at 6:30 am on my snow day. Boo.

I bet the weathermen are regretting naming this storm Nemo. With the threat of thunder snow this storm deserves a name like Thor or Hulk.

It's a Sad Day

Monopoly has announced that my beloved iron has been replaced. And by a cat of all things!

Because I am super nerdy, I voted to save the iron and add the robot...we are after all in the digital information age. I loved the iron. I was sturdy, and simple, and didn't flip over every five seconds like the stupid wheelbarrow.

And a cat?

Boo on you people of the world.

Rest in peace dear iron.

You will be missed.

On My Birthday...

My ideal birthday would look like this:

  • Sleep in.
  • Eat warm cinnamon rolls in my pjs.
  • Take a walk.
  • Get all dressed up pretty.
  • Long, lazy coffee/lunch date with bffs.
  • Nap.
  • Puppy snuggles.
  • Dinner with family.
  • Cake.

Instead it looked like this:

  • Pack lunch and make toast.
  • Work with kidlets for hours.
  • Watch them cry and knock chairs over and make weird noises.
  • Eat cake for lunch.
  • Chop several inches off my hair.

  • Laundry.
  • Dinner with my family.
  • Cake.
  • Best voicemail ever from my favorite Michigander.
  • Phone call with the bestie.
  • Bed early.

I guess that what happens when your birthday is on a Monday and you've had a cold for 8 days. Come on awesome!

Birthday Eve

On Birthday Eve Day I snuggled on the couch and watched Pitch Perfect for the billionth time while it snowed pretty, pretty snow outside. Then I headed to the outlets to buy myself some birthday presents (new polka dot scarves and a necklace) and stopped for gas. I snapped a photo of the gas prices for 2 reasons. 1) I take iPhone pictures of everything and 2) I've been having REALLY weird dreams lately and last night I had a dream that I accidentally pushed the mid grade button instead of the regular button and couldn't stop from loading up on more expensive gas.

I headed to my parent's house and immediately dressed up my puppy in my Stink Week shirt. She willingly let me put it on but then REFUSED to look at me while I took a photo. Don't worry I gave her doggy treats afterwards!

There were purple birthday flowers...

Everyday Aunt, Uncle and niece/cousin came over for dinner. We built some structurally unsound bridges and FaceTimed with Everyday Brother and his now live-in girlfriend.

After a yummy dinner I let Everyday niece/cousin decorate my carrot cake birthday cupcakes with flowers and mustaches.

We watched Beyonce shake her thing and while I was excited about hearing some Destiny's Child I kept waiting for Tina Turner or Aretha Franklin or some other surprise guest to come out. I headed home in the fluffiest snow I have EVER seen. Big fat flakes that were so light they built up like bubbles instead of snow.

Happy Birthday Eve to me!
