Fun Facts Friday: [12/19/14]

Fun Facts Friday

1) Good morning! I’m blogging from Starbucks this morning because it’s FRIDAY before winter break. So I’m not feeling the need to RUSH off to work to prep all sorts of materials and things for the day.


2) I feel like Christmas is sneaking up on me. I’ve been prepping for quite some time, but I can’t believe it’s in 6. DAYS! Can I keep my office X-mas lights up forever?!

3) We had our “work” holiday party last night. I laugh a little bit when I say “work” holiday party. Because these people are pretty much my fam. So obviously air quotes are needed when I say WORK holiday party. Love you guys so much.

4) I’m still obsessed with these Fitbit challenges. Obsessed. Who knew that a picture of a trophy can make you feel so effing cool?

5) Our new book club book is SO good. I started reading it up at camp this week and I’m already halfway through. Anuja – if you’re reading this, you are officially our new book chooser. ALL THE TIME.

6) I am so obsessed with Bananagrams. I want to play ALL THE TIME. Let’s play. (Except I don’t do too well when I lose, so just a fair warning).


7) Cheryl Strayed now has a podcast! I am so obsessed with her. After reading Wild and Dear Sugar, I am pretty much her biggest fan and I can’t wait to see what she does with this series.

8) Remember how I’ve been searching near and far for my beloved sweet tea vodka? I. FOUND. SOME. I was driving up to camp and I stopped in a small little deli to pick up some peanut butter and bread for the kiddos that forgot their lunch on Monday. And I SAW IT. So, obviously, I bought 4 of them.

Don’t even judge me. Otherwise I won’t share.

Hope you all have a fab Friday! I most certainly will.


Questions of the Day:

  • Do you listen to any podcasts? Which one?

Fourth Grade Science Camp

And we're back! I can't believe 4th grade camp was only 2 days long. It definitely seemed like a lot longer (in the best possible way, of course). Hanging out with my little goobs outside of the classroom always opens my eyes to an entirely different side of the kiddos. We drove about 3 hours (in the rain, might I add) up to Occidental and it continued pouring for the remainder of our time there. The rain didn't dampen our spirit and our kids were so eager to partake in all the … Read more»

Sangria Sundays


Hello from my dining room table where I just sang Nick Jonas' "Jealous" at the top of my lungs. Beth - if you're reading this, you should be SO grateful that you're not home right now. Also, I know there should be a comma somewhere after the word "Jonas," but it's really hard for me to figure out if it comes before the apostrophe or after. So I'll leave it to you literary critics to inform me. In other news, I've had ALL the sangria because I just got back from book club so this post should … Read more»
