I'm sorry I've been distant. I sure have missed you. Hope you're glad to have me back. December has been all sorts of crazy with the end of the school semester and parties and to-do's. Don't worry, I have a whirlwind of a post to catch y'all up though.
In the past weeks, I've...
Attended one too many Christmas parties and indulged in lots of goodies. Proof below.

|I may or may not have worn this scandalous number|

At some point in December I made the not so smart, but incredibly fun decision to have a Teachers Night Out with my roommates on a Thursday night. Didn't make for a fun Friday teaching though. My poor little post-grad body can't handle a glass of wine and a peach martini unfortunately.
I got an awesome secret santa present, and gave an awesome secret santa gift. More on what I received later ;)

Part of my gift to my roommate was a hand painted mug, thanks to Pinterest. Here's a sneak peek of it.
My teaming group at school got matching Monogrammed sweatshirts, and we took a Christmas picture to prove it!
It has been such a blessing to have my students two years in a row. I'm going to miss them so much. I'm so excited to see some more of last year's students next semester and for a new bunch that I will have as well for Spanish I. These kids have taught me so much more than I ever expected, and at times I think they taught me more than I taught them.

On a final note, I have a student playing matchmaker...which will potentially lead to a blind date in the near future. Gotta keep life interesting, right?
Merry early Christmas.
