How did so many days go by and I didn't have a minute to blog?? I can't believe it is already Thursday!
What have I been up to this week? Lots of getting busy back at work. But I have had some fun things happen this week! I think you may remember me telling you how I always find gift cards in my purse that I have never used?? Well, I changed purses this week and found two $10 cards to Target, a $10 card to Starbucks, and a $20 Pier One gift card. Yay! So I left extra early for work on Monday and went by Starbucks for my tall, skim, decaf hazelnut latte.
By the way, is there a certain way you are supposed to place an order at Starbucks?? Ashley and I were having that discussion while we were in New York. What is your favorite drink at Starbucks?? I am stuck on hazelnut lattes!!
I also decided to join Twitter last night just for fun. I don't really think I will do any tweeting myself. (Goodness...I barely have time to blog!) But I do like reading what is going on in everyone else's life!! Some people think that is just crazy. I've heard people say, "Who cares what anyone is doing at any given moment during the day??!!" I think you can get extreme with it, but I am just a huge people watcher. That is so entertaining to me. And I love getting to know people and hearing all about their lives. That does not bore me at all!
So...Mark told me that he gets Tweets (is that what you call it??) from famous basketball players and that you can get Tweets from well-known people in addition to friends. So I followed anyone I could think of that I either know or watch on TV! What do you think about Twitter??
Tomorrow is Joy Prom at my church. It is a prom that we host for anyone with special needs in this area. I was in charge of the flowers this year. I am excited about seeing these sweet people enjoying such a special night. Here is my blog about it from last year. It was one of those times that you will never forget.
Saturday I am hosting a baby shower for three pregnant girls (one of them happens to be my sister-in-law, Britney) at my house.
I am looking forward to that. It is supposed to be such a nice weekend. Yay for spring!
Then on Sunday, I am going to Columbia for a bridal shower for Ashley that all her Chi-O friends are giving her. They wanted to do something for her before she graduates. I can't believe the showers are already starting!! I will tell you all about it Sunday night.
Today we took the entire second grade on a field trip to the community of Matthews, North Carolina. We toured the Town Hall, The Public Library, and an old-fashioned hardware store...you know the kind that has sells baby chicks along with fertilizer? We had a picnic afterward and it was such a beautiful day. I just LOVE sunny spring weather!! Doesn't it put you in the best mood??
Here is a picture of me with one of my students!
Hope you are having a good week!
