Turning 30 isn't too bad!

Dan sent me this wonderful bracelet for my 30th birthday! It is made by Links of London and I love it. I cannot wait until I can afford another charm. Hopefully the Nordstrom in Orem will get a shipment soon, they are currently sold out of all their charms. I was very spoiled this year. My family got me a Betsey Johnson purse (photos will be posted soon!) and gave me money for my spring break trip to Savannah, Georgia in April!

I love January!

We are having so much fun in Preschool this month! We are learning about snwomen, hot chocolate, winter clothes and artic animals. Here is the picture of the bulletin board I just put up...I love it. Thanks to Kate and Melinda who helped me cut out the glitter lettering on the Cricut! The students in my class made the beautiful snowflakes using coffee filters, hole punches and of couse scissors!

We went out to dinner on New Year's Eve. It was a farewell dinner for Elizabeth...We miss you!

I've been tagged!

Melinda tagged me awhile ago and I am finally getting around to writing 6 interesting things about myself. So, here goes...

1. I absolutely hate my hair! I always have. In junior high I would wish that everyone on the planet could be bald so I would not have to deal with my hair. If you are looking at picture on my blog and thinking, "Hmmm, her hair isn't so bad." Keep in mind, I am wearing hair extensions.

2. I love the show Law and Order. I don't care if I have already seen the episode, I will sit and watch it anyway. I love the intro song, the characters, the story lines and most of all the TNT Law and Order marathons!

3. I like to look at myself in anything I can see my reflection in. If you have ever had a conversation with me and there is a microwave, window or mirror behind you, you have probably noticed that I am not looking at the person I am having the conversation with, but rather looking at my reflection. I think this habit stems from the fact, as previously mentioned in item #1, I hate my hair. It ALWAYS needs adjusting or fixing.

4. I like to lay out and get tan. I wear sunscreen, lots of it! I love teaching school because that means summers off and plenty of time to lay by the pool. I had an awesome tan this summer, which has now faded and I feel as pale as ever.

5. I feel that no woman can have too much of the following: makeup, shoes, coats, perfume, lotion, sheets, bedding, diet soda, phone conversations and flowers.

6. I absolutely LOVE politics. I am so excited that it is and election year! I love listening to or reading anything discussing politics including, talk radio, FOX News or CNN. As a freshmen in college I was a political science major, with dreams of becoming a lawyer. I got close. I took the LSAT got into some law schools but in the end realized that teaching preschool was what I needed to do and I have never regretted it, except sometimes when I get my pay check!

That is enough about me! Now I want to hear about Alyse, Melisa and Elizabeth. You have been tagged!
