Sex and the City!!

THIS MOVIE IS WONDERFUL!!!! I got to go to North Hills last night (with Barefoot in the Park and The Social Papillon) for an advanced screening and let me tell you; I laughed, OH I cried, I needed a hug, I needed a man, I needed my girlfriends, and thankfully I left with a big smile on my face. It was so good. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. I went in with huge expectations and every one of them was met and hit out of the park. GO SEE IT!!

Happy Friday!!!

Surprise for me!! A friend went to Blue Martini for happy hour last night and got tickets for tonights show and she loves me so I get to go too now!! We aren't guarranteed to get in, so we're just heading up to North Hills early to grab food (hopefully, CHIKFILA!!) and get in line to hopefully get in. Not sure how it works, but if we do get in, sweet, if not, a wonderful excuse to put packing off for one more night and potentially get Chik Fil A.. woop woop

What a beautiful day we had today!!

Dinner was lovely on Tuesday. It's just so fun that something (the internet) that is meant to broaden our horizons and show us the world, can show us so much that we have right down the street!! Can't wait to do it again, girls!!

On another note, a friend of mine and her man hunk are going for a romantic get-away to Ocracroke Island. Has anyone ever been there for a mini-holiday? Any suggestions, recomendations, warnings??

9 days of school left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so looking forward to a few days off. I'm so preoccupied with end of year testing, getting 1st grade class lists prepared, creating the new Kindergarten class lists and OH so much more, that I've barely gotten to packing. I have to be all packed out and OUT OF HERE by the 7th. EEK!

TUESDAY Drinks and Dinner?

Hello Ladies,

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Mine was filled with 9 hour drives, too much day drinking, and a wee little bit of a sun burn. But so much fun. As for tomorrow I'm still game if you are! How about we aim for 6:00 at Mellow Mushroom? I can't believe how hot it is supposed to be, so sitting outside would be WONDERFUL! Shoot me an email at if you're thinking of coming or just post a comment so I can have an idea of how many are coming (and if you're bringing a friend along as well). So whoever is there first can try and grab a table. Looking forward to it!

David Cook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Off to PA to the middle of nowhere to a friend's cabin. There aren't enough beds for everyone going, but that's why we love cuddling right?? Guess I should start packing :)
Happy Memorial Day!

I'd like to propose a toast....

on Monday or Tuesday. Let's meet at Nelson's, or I guess it's Fosters now, for a Raleigh Ladies Happy Hour. I love being at Nelsons/Fosters, getting a drink and some how working my way upstairs without spilling half of the drink all over myself and never finding my friends. So, I thought how nice it would be to go when it's not overrun with underage ITBers and drunk older men. With the old menu back, I'm not sure what kind of drink specials they might have, but it could be fun! How nice would it be, bring some friends, meet some new ones, and have a drink and a snack looking down on the world around us (because we'd be on the 2nd floor of course, not because we're at Fosters and that makes us better or anything.... ;-)

Let me know if you want to go! I'll send out an email to those that respond with final time and date! I'm getting a group together and plan on going anyway. So join us!

Field day, Strawberry picking, and other Kindergarten fun

Today was field day. Now in my day, when we had field day we had the huge parachute, water balloon launchers, spinning around on a bat, three legged races, and so many others I can't even think of them all. Today was not all it should've been cracked up to be. It was so lame!!!! The highlight of the morning though, was Grant. Grant is from the YMCA and teachers child aerobics. Well, let me tell you, he got their little hearts pumping. It was hilarious. The modern day Richard Simmons. The kids loved him though.... oh where is Richard Simmons now:
Tomorrow is our field trip to the strawberry farm. We get to pick our own strawberries and take them home. I taught them today how I used to pick strawberries: one in the bucket, one in my mouth, one in the bucket, one in my mouth. I'm going to get yelled at by other teachers and the farmers I think. OH WELL.... I plan on having strawberry stained children tomorrow afternoon. Lord, please don't let it rain.

It was stupid, and immature. A way to make myself feel better about a situation I put myself in. I should not have aired personal information to friends and others. I apologize.

Miss me?

AHH! I can't believe how MIA I have been. SO much has happened since I last posted. Here is a mini-recap until I can sit down, hopefully tonight, and fill you in:

~ Bachelorette weekend in Raleigh
~ Wedding in Maryland
~ Resigning of contract for job next year (A good thing I hope!)
~ Finalized field hockey coaching position for fall
~ MOVING!!!!!!!!!!!! Just up the road a bit to an adorable house with 2 other girls. Time to peace out of my current situation :) So that first week of June, school will be ending, and I will be moving. THANK GOD!
~ And I'm going to the Carolina Country Club tonight for a reception for Alumni, Parents, and Friends of my Highschool.. Break out the Lilly and the pearls. Back to The Highschool we go :)

Can't wait to put up pictures from the wedding and fill you in on all my goings on.

I need a fun cocktail dress. I really really need help where to go. I kind of want something blue or navy. I have long blonde hair and being tan, I'm feeling inspired. I don't have many and I need one for a wedding party. Anyone seen anything?? PLEASE HELP. Where do you go to get cocktail, but not beaded all over the place, too old for a 25 year old, dresses???
