Let's Talk About This

So if you know me, you know that I am a loyal and devoted MAC make-up user... however I am not one to rule out a great grocery store cosmetic find.  Here is my latest great find that I share with you my blogging friends: 

For a mere $7.50 (or something like that) it too can be yours. Yes 1/2 the price of good old MAC plush lash.  

Ta-Dah! Presenting...
Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Mascara 

Try it, you'll like it! In a box with a fox, in house with a mouse, here or there... anywhere!


Job interview

So typically when people think of job interview attire they think suit, nylons, heels, clean hair... 

February 27 I had a job interview. This is what I was wearing:

*Note: I also had day old hair. It had been a shower cap morning.

The recruiting lady from the district was here at the school on a Professional Development Day (hence the tracksuit) I popped in to ask her a couple questions about my contract and found out that I would need a new screening interview because I was moving from a part time to a full time contract and I was hired after January.  

A few minutes later it was just arranged that I could have the job interview right then since she was already there.  I apologized for my lack of professional attire and she just kept telling me how happy she was that I had stopped in and how much the district would love to have me work for them next year.  So over the next 30 minutes I grabbed my file and started pulling letters of recommendation, my BYU transcript, and student teaching evaluations.  I was asked if I would rather do my interview another day so I could prepare, but I decided to just go for it.  After all if I couldn't pass a basic screening interview then I probably shouldn't be teaching!

 Thankfully it went really well and I am now in the district candidate pool for the 2009-2010 school year.  I am anxious to see where I end up teaching next year.  Principals do interviews in April! I will be sure not to wear a tracksuit and to wash my hair!  


Time flies when you are having fun...

As you all are well aware, I seem to have taken a vacation from the blogging world.  With moving from Newport Beach, starting kindergarten, teaching every day, and Christian coming home it has been a busy 2009 thus far! Here is an update... photos included! Enjoy!

February 6th Christian returned home from Hiroshima, Japan! It has been so much fun having him home and being all together as a family.  

Here he comes

Next up... I got lasik!!! I LOVE being able to see! It is the best thing ever! Truly a miracle of modern medicine! It wasn't painful at all... I would do it again! Definitely worth it! At night I sometimes forget and I lie down and spring right back up to take out my contacts.  I am not used to going to bed without the blurriness!  For your viewing pleasure... here is a disgusting picture of me in my "bug glasses."  I had to wear these the first 24 hours after the procedure and then just sleep in them for 5 nights after.  Every morning I had to peel goo off my face from the tape.  Lovely! I had to put lots and lots of drops in my eyes for about a week and couldn't wear make up for 5 days.  It was a quick procedure with an easy recovery. Cheers to 20/20 vision! 

I have 21 darling, spunky and busy kindergarteners! It has been so fun to be back in the classroom! Last week was report cards and two nights of Parent Teacher Conferences.  It is always nice to have that out of the way.

We have been working really hard on our Writer's Workshop using "spacerman", word wall words, stretching words with our "sound slinkys" and punctuation.  Take a look at this courtesy of my little London J.  How could I not love my job? 
Here's to being a better blogger this month!
