Mr. M and his amazingness!

My Mr. M has been  extra amazing these past few days. I have had a fever for 4 days now. He has cooked me dinner, done the dishes and took care of me! He dug my car out of the snow, has been dealing with vacations plans and working all at the same time! My afternoon nap which lasts from noon until about 6pm has been followed by dinner already made and waiting for me! 
So, yummy and healthy! Turkey of course! 
Tonight he made me sir fry... delicious!
He also had a surprise! Back in November I DVR the Victoria Secret Fashion Show because Katy Perry was performing and it didn't turn out well. He found a good copy of it.  I LOVE this man! 

 
This was Katy's first performance of the night in the VS show! I want her outfit! It's my color and style! 

Thanks M for being the bestest husband ever!
He even remember that today was the day 8 years ago that we went to church and prayed and decided to make the biggest decision of our lives... date!
Please say a prayer for me for tomorrow. I am going to work for the 100th day of school. It's only for 5 hours but I have been only making it about 2 hours so far this week. I just need to get through the morning and then I can go home!
TGI almost Friday

Tune Tuesday

This Tuesday I have been super sick with a fever but I have been thinking about this song. Josh Groban is coming out with a new album. He has always been a favorite for me. He was even the first musician I saw in concert with my BFF Amanda. I know I am super loved by so many especially on a day like today when I am sick. Thanks M for taking care of me and getting all of my meds! Love you!

Complaining about the weather!

This morning I woke up to 6 inches of snow (and still coming down to a total of 8 inches).  My amazing husband was so kind to get out of bed and take me to work before the sun rose! He made my morning!  My car was not moving out of it's spot! I am very much ready for a vacation! I just need to feel better. I am exhausted and my allergies are going crazy with this warm weather then cold weather. Pick one Mother Nature and I would greatly appreciated it if it was the warm kind!

Heat Miser is who I would like to see!
On the flip side. It was a beautiful gift from God (if I did not have to go out into it)!
Happy Monday Everyone!

Fabulous Friday

Oh how I could not wait until it was Friday! This week was a fun crazy week full of unfortunately lots of sick kiddos and teachers! I spent most of the week fighting off what everyone was getting. I was tired but no other signs of illness-thank goodness! I also cleaned a lot! My whole classroom got a good scrub down!  Even though it was a full moon and the kiddos were 12 kinds of crazy! I was so happy that it was warm and partly cloudy and I did NOT have to wear pants or socks or stuffy shoes! I felt so free today! 
See cute outfit below!
When I came home it read 68 degrees on the tempature gaget we have in the living room! I walked around outside, swept the side walk and then saw this...

After the shock of seeing my tulips budding in FEBRUARY! I had a little chat with them! Yes I told them to go back in the ground and stay there! It will snow again and then what!?!  I feel like every year they pop up earlier and earlier! There was a huge pile of snow next to them that still had not melted! If anyone has any suggestions please let me know! I know mother nature does it's thing and I want spring to come but I want pretty flowers not dead ones!
Happy Warm Friday Everyone!
All you need is LOVE!

Priti NYC - Priti in Pink Princess Nail Polish!

I received my Priti NYC Nail Polish this week. I have some pros and some cons to share with you! My initial reaction was that this company isn't very eco-friendly in the packaging process. The box was small but it was packed with paper and some bubble wrap.

 The box that the nail polish came in was cute and looked eco-friendly but it had tissue paper in it.
I proceeded to open up a bottle and try it on and it stinks just like regular nail polish.
It says it is Toulene, Formaldehyde, and DBP Free but I am not sure what other chemicals are in the polish.
My next step was of course to try all 4 on and see how it wears! 
 This was with just one coat. (super sloppy polish job but I was too excited to care!)
It dried quick! From left to right is... 
Fairy Dust,Wiked Stepmother's, Rosy Glow and Rock star! 
I love Rock Star it is similar to a color I wore before! I also liked Wiked Stepmother and with just one coat I did not see very much sparkle with Rosy Glow. I think if I were to wear it there would have to be more coats involved to see a pinkish color.
That night I took a shower and there was no chipping or dis-colorization! 
I went swimming the next day and still no chipping or dis-colorization! 
I wore flip flops and crocs that rub and still no chipping or dis-colorization!
 
On a scale of 1-10 I would give it this polish a 6 based on what I currently know. I do not like the smell and I am nervous about what chemicals are still in the bottle. It wears well and I like that the bottle is made from recyclable materials.

The day of Love in the month of Love!

Today is the day that everyone expresses how they love the ones close to them.
I had 25 little ones who were my valentine's today! They are all unique and special in my heart not just today but everyday! They make me smile and laugh and sometimes cry! 
We made love muffins today as our special treat! I put their names on the bottom of  heart decorated cupcake holders and they got to choose if they wanted blueberry or strawberry love muffins! 


It was a crazy love kind of a day! 

8 years ago today my husband and I shared our first Valentine's Day together.
It is the day that started the beginning of our love story! 
Today I got a package with lots of love on it!

I had no idea what was in this Valentine's Day surprise!

It is a book about the history of the twilight saga! I had looked at it back in December and he remembered it! I am super excited! I am even more excited because I have a book to read on our vacation that we will be taking to beautiful warm places! I have got to say I have an amazing husband! 
I love you M! 

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! 
This was a pretty good start to the week of LOVE!

Weekend Away

I had a wonderful weekend away. My mother in law is awesome at providing me with all kinds of materials for my classroom and of course she came through when I needed Easter Grass for a project I have planned in April. Teachers always have to think ahead!
 It is even purple! Oh my favorite!

She also had introduced me to crocheting about 7 years ago. I know the basic double crochet in rows which is how I made my husband a blanket (that is almost finished)! I wanted to learning something new but simple so I now know how to make a granny box? Here is my 4th attempt at my new crocheting talent!  
It was a good weekend to work on projects!

Tunes I am lovin Tuesday!

On this Terrific Tunes Tuesday I have choose the song Where is the Love? by Black Eyed Peas. I first heard this song when I was in college and would sing it all the time! I recently heard it sung during the super bowl Sunday half time show (it's the only part I watch).
My next Terrific Tuesday news is that I think I finally found a nail polish that is "Three-Free," meaning free of toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DHB) and formaldehyde

I have been looking for a company for about a year. I have read dozens of articles and checked out dozens of websites that sell Three Free nail polishes. 
I have ordered  from Priti NYC. I first was going to get just one bottle but ended up in there children's section  appropriately called Priti in Pink Princess (it sounds like it was made for me right? Just add purple in stead of pink)and ordered the Fantasy Pack. I will let you know how well it works!

No nail polish can be considered organic or natural but it can have less of the harmful chemicals in it that we put on our body and smell while applying and if your a little girl and bit your nails ingest without knowing.

Tunes I am Loving Tuesday!

So this is probably my most embarrassing post!
However, I can not get Justin Bieber's song out of my head!
