Jeremy & Kathleen are A-MAY-ZING.
Dressing On The Side T-shirts are ADORBS.
It's a match made in heaven.
The coolest thing is that the two met via blogging, signed up for each other's mutual admiration society and now--get ready for fun.
If you haven't checked out J&K's TWO blogs (one for food, art, inspiration, life and one for what they wear each day) you MUST.
Bloggers with a few things in common can create something really wonderful together. That just makes me smile.

look what I found! The "you've seen it everywhere" striped top (did you see Jenna Lyons/J.Crew on Oprah with her stripes and sequins pants? LOVE) that I have several styles of... but none like this. Easy to wear, long, and sings summer. The best part? Hello $12.99

Tomorrow, both husband and I have hikes planned...neither will be as adventurous as the posted pic but enjoyable none the less. Hanging out with a girlfriend (for me) and the archaeological society (yawn) for him.

The kids at my school are doing state tests this week.
Administering the rules and regulations to fifth graders is like a truth serum for declaration of any and all electrical appliances that the kids are not supposed to have ("I admit it...I have a cell phone in my backpack...and an iPod too..is that okay?should I put them on your desk?" ).
There was a moment while reading the scripted test rules for the sixth time in three days that I wanted to add, "Bueller" "Bueller"...but, considering I would be the only one to giggle; I held it in.
BUT--the good news is that it is an AMAZINGLY wonderful sunny day and everyone seems to be mellow and relaxed during recess and any free time they are given. At present, I plugged in a little "Beatles" on Pandora , opened a few of my windows, and am enjoying the rays until the bell rings and we start the testing treadmill tomorrow.

I am so enchanted with these two. The blonde you might recognize as Brooke White from American Idol (last year? two years ago? whenever..she was on it) and the brunette is Summer Bellessa, founding editor of Eliza magazine (which, to be honest...never heard of...but now I'll look for it at the local Barnes&Noble) They've also got a website which is just adorable here...let's just face it; they're just over the top cuteness.
The idea behind the show is a good one. Be entertained while being informed and enlightened--the smart girl talk show. Let's see where it goes.

the idea of this. First off; I've got too many curves to ever pull this off but if I were long and lanky...

It's gorgeous out. Considering I have about a weeks worth of sick/personal days and considering I would just be dumping them at the end of the school year in May....I'm taking the day off tomorrow. Husband and I will be enjoying a hike, a picnic, and the weather. Hope your day will be just as fun.

Although the funding for my job title is no more, there is the possibility that I can "steal" another job in the school district that will become available because of other teachers being laid off with less experience than me and leaving their jobs open. Hmmm...not sure how I feel about that, but something to think about.
My principal wanted to see me unexpectedly after school yesterday--but as I ran into the office, I saw that his door was closed and HELLO! I had a date with a massage that I wasn't planning on being late for. I'm 99% sure this "see me" meeting is about budget cuts for next year and chances are cloudy with a chance of meatballs that my job will not be around.
This morning he stuck his head in my room filled with first graders at 8:45 and asked me to see him when I was free. Well, as you can tell--I'm quite free at the moment-LUNCH-- but--do I really want to kill my appetite with the news he most likely will deliver??! No thank you. So, here I am...the ostrich with her head in the sand...it's a pleasant enough place to be for the moment.
I realize this is how I deal with most stress in my life--BUT--once said stress is known I turn into "fire it up/ research/ change it up" mode and I suppose I don't want to turn the key on that option right at the moment. Do you do the same?
ps. my principal looks NOTHING like "Up in The Air" George...but you can be sure I might have stuck around yesterday afternoon if he did...

Can you believe DOTS has a stylist for their photo shoot?! Her name is Stacy Ann~ but her friends call her Stan.
Ever wondered why Easter’s date wanders around? Because it’s determined by the lunar calendar. Easter is celebrated at the first Sunday after the first full Moon, after the Spring Equinox. It can therefore arrive anywhere between March 21st and April 25th.
there you go.
