I'm sick at home today, soo I was thinking about all the movies I wish I was watching.  Instead I've only put my glasses on a couple times today, because they hurt my nose... oh the pressure.  Anyway, I thought about all the great kids' books that are movies these days.  It's great!  Makes getting kids interested in reading pretty easy when there's a great movie to go along with it!  I'm super excited about cloudy w/ a chance of meatballs, coming out soon.There's also Winn Dixie with was a great one and who can forget Flicka!

But the most exciting thing is Where the Wild Things Are!!!  It just looks so great!  The previews make it look just like the illustrations, so hopefully it'll be all I've built it up in my mind to be. :)
Well I'm going back to bed, hope you all have a great Tuesday evening!

Yay! A trip out of town!

Farmboy and I got to get away for the day yesterday!  After a full week of school and craziness, we both needed a day out of town.  FB even had to break up a fight with a couple of his kids, apparently high school's a little more exciting than I remember.  Anyway, we took about an hour drive and enjoyed Bass Pro Shop, Macaroni Grill, a movie, the mall, and Carlos O'Kelly's.
     Oh and we also took a tour of our college days.  We both went to the same school, yet didn't meet until 5 years later.  FB was a senior when I was a freshman, the crazy thing is we lived within 2 blocks of each other just a couple years apart.  We had fun driving around talking about dorm life and crappy college houses.  
     FB and I watched The Shorts at the matinee.  It was actually really cute.  It's the movie about the magic wishing rock.  Yes, FB and I like kids' movies.  I've also found a new love for legos games on xbox 360.  FB bought legos Indiana Jones on a whim and I've gotten a little addicted.  
     Alright this post has gotten a little derailed.  My point, I believe, was how much we enjoyed the much needed time out of town.  Soo I'm off to finish laundry and clean a lil.

Blonde Moment!

So farmboy and I were driving back from the farm to his house.  We drive the same highway every single trip, so I know it fairly well.  Anyway, I'm sleepily watching the scenery roll by as FB drives.  I broke the silence with "A ZEBRA!!"  FB, of course, used to my tendency to shriek when surprised, said "No it wasn't."  I asked if he'd seen it, and he had not!  I was still convinced it was a zebra.  So today we're driving and I'm intent on proving my case.  Well sadly I didn't get to gloat about being right... The zebra was really a horse.  But in my defense the horse had been dyed zebra print.  Yes that's right, some farmer decided to paint zebra stripes on their horse!  My question to you, blogger friends,  WHY?? Who has time for that?

Surprise!! Surprise!!

I came home from a loooong day at school today.  We had our open house for parents and kids, so I just stayed there instead of driving clear home just to go back.  Anyway, when I came home I was welcomed be not just one but two surprises!  

The first was the cutest card from Farmboy!  He found a really sweet "Hoops and YoYo" card that talks of course.  He was here to take care of lil' Holly, who would of been doing the "I have to tinkle" dance for quite a while without him.  I'm so glad he likes my lil girl!  Thanks love!

The second surprise is the wonderful layout change!  I do love my Adventurous Newlywed!  She's so great!  I could say that this was planned change to celebrate the 100th post, but I'm not that with it.  So instead I'll just say thanks to her, and Happy 100th Post to everyone else.

I'm on a hunt for girly desk organizers and a desk calendar.  I've gone to all the stores in my local area, which I must say not promising.  The lovely Target has cute stuff, but I had higher hopes for my desk.  See this year I just have a desk, because I'll be helping in other classes not teaching my own.  I'll pull small groups of kids to help reading.  So since I don't get to go full out with a whole room, my desk gets all the brunt of my need to decorate.  So my friends, please fill me in where am I forgetting to look??

Dessert Date

Farmboy took me out on the town Friday night.  We decided to do appetizer and dessert, because we rarely order either when we go out for dinner.  I am a chocaholic, so I miss out on a lot of the great restaurant desserts.  Luckily my "I'd rather eat a banana than chocolate" boyfriend, loves me enough to indulge my sweet-tooth occasionally.  We had Cheddar's sampler, followed by the Cookie Monster!
It started out delish!  And as you can see it ended just terribly.  Heh Just kiddin it was fantastic!  FB even let me have the last perfect bite, equal parts cookie and whipped cream with just a bit of ice cream and hot fudge.  Then he drew me this picture.  Can you see what it is he wrote??
Isn't he the sweetest!  Sweeter than the cookie monster we devoured. I heart you too Farmboy!

He's at the state convention for career and tech. teachers until Wednesday.  What will I do with the spare time?? I suppose I should get ready for school.  I'll leave you with a very amusing shot of FB and I on tractors that were way too small.Hope that gives ya a laugh or two.  Have a good Monday!
