thankful thursday

today i'm thankful that
i will only have 4 more chances
to get stuck behind Bus 27
on the way to work.


today i'm thankful for the wonderful people i work with. 
i know a lot of people say this and it can tend to sound cliche,
but i TRULY COULD NOT do my job without their help.
it would be impossible!
they are the most loving, fun, hard-working people i know. 
they know more about teaching reading than some teachers,
get paid a whole lot less than teachers,
and never complain about the fact
they could be making more money elsewhere.
they love kids and treat them with respect, while at the
same time commanding it.
they consistently go above and beyond the call of duty
and i love each and every one of them,
joe, jan, cindy, carol, lisanne, maxine, and steph (not pictured).
who else could i convince to wear this headgear
on crazy hat day?!?


today i am thankful for air conditioning...
supposed to feel like 100 degrees later today.


today i am thankful that there are only 8 more days
until i have my feet in the sand [not counting today].


today i am thankful for my Nathan,
who still melts my heart
when he urgently calls my name
from the backseat of the car
only to say, "i love you"
when i answer him.

{someday he'll kill me for posting this
pic of him stomping around in my heels~
but since he's only 4 1/2, i can still get
away with it}

hey, lloyd!

Remember Lloyd Christmas from the movie Dumb and Dumber?

That's what Mark has started calling Evan this week. 
Not because he's dumb [although that's debatable in this circumstance!].
No, it's because HE. CUT. HIS. HAIR.

Apparently, he did not learn this lesson
when Ryan massacred his own head.

Nope, we must learn the hard way around here.
And even though Evan thinks it looks good,
we're still gooping him up
and trying to mask the ridiculousness
 until we can get him in for a haircut.

Note to self:
Hide the scissors!

i {heart} this app

Have I told you how much I love my iphone?? 

Yes, I am a true convert.

Can't. put. it. down. 
Mark is ready to commit me ~ hee-hee!

Anyway, while browsing apps in the app store [LOVE saying that], I came across this great app for all you lovers of crafts out there.  It's called "Craftgawker."  Their tagline is "look to inspire"...I don't know what I LOVE more, the app or that!!!  :)

Here's the premise...

Crafty people [you know who you are] post photos of their latest and greatest and us gawkers get to check it out and create a 'favorites' list.  The photos link back to websites where the crafter gives a tutorial or shares something crafty.  Isn't that fun!?!

I finally checked out their website tonight and guess what?!? 

There are more gawker sites/apps to be had!

I cannot wait to check out the dwelling gawker!!
