December Update

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted. I've been BUSY, BUSY, BUSY, and that is my only excuse for being such a bad blogger.

In December, I have:
  • driven across Kansas to return to Colorado from Missouri, where we went for Thanksgiving break
  • suffered through proctoring tons of district assessments with my students (BORING)
  • spent a wonderful weekend with Dan and friends in Steamboat Springs
  • skied my very first BLUE run (Heavenly Daze at Steamboat Springs - thanks again, Aaron!)
  • fulfilled 10 magnet orders from shoppers on Etsy (and made over 250 magnets for those orders)
  • completed seven canvas collages for buyers from my Etsy shop {click here to visit my shop}
  • celebrated the completion of the first semester with my students and colleagues with food, Elf, foosball, ping pong, and dancing
  • tried a new (and delicious) cookie recipe
  • celebrated Dan receive PILOT as his job and finish his ninth out of ten semesters at the Air Force Academy

As of this this evening, I have ONE work day left for the semester... and it's a teacher work day! Yay! We will soon leave to visit Dan's family in Portland and then a couple friends in Philadelphia. Both trips should be fun, and it'll be nice to experience a new city (never been to Philly).

I just wanted to post a quick update since it had been over a week... oops! 


  1. You are coming to Portland?!? Send me an email if you guys have any time to meet up!

    Sounds like a busy, but fun month! Maybe not the testing, but that usually meant less lesson planning for me, so maybe that is good! :)

  2. You have been busy! I also have one day left before winter break. I am so very excited about that! Love my job but I just don't want to follow a schedule for the next two weeks. And I want to go to a movie in the middle of the day... and stay in my pjs... and bake cookies. I'm ready :)

  3. It''s okay to be busy as long as your having fun right?.. Enjoy more.

  6. Dang girl! You have been a busy, busy bee! Safe travels!
