Life has been keeping me busy lately, sadly putting this blog on the back burner. It's the end of the school year, the sun is out which means happy hours, dinners on the patio, and less time ticking away at my computer. This post is my effort to "catch up," if you will.
My husband and I took a mini road trip to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival a few weeks ago. It was the perfect day; after a few straight weeks of rain, the sun was gloriously shining, and tulip fields were bursting with vibrant color and in full bloom. What a beautiful day!
The Descendants - have you seen it? Pull out a big old box of Kleenex for this one. Definitely rentable.
Kickball season is in full swing! My friends and I have been playing together on a team every spring for 5 years now - it's quite the tradition! We're back-to-back champions so we've got quite a title to defend this year.
My good friend and co-worker hosted a Bingo fundraiser for a her educational non-profit, Project Kesho in Tanzania. I'd forgotten how fun Bingo is, why don't I play more often!?! And to top if off; I won a bottle of champagne in the raffle AND a gift card to Taco Time for Bingo, woohoo!
I'm reading a few books right now (The Marriage Plot and The Unhealthy Truth), but I just downloaded Fifty Shades of Grey on my kindle after my coworkers have been hounding me to read this! Have any of you gotten hooked by this trilogy?
And finally, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. I'm feeling very loved and appreciated by my students and classroom families, and to make a great work even better, my husband sent me this bouquet of flowers at work, he's the best! Make sure to recognize your favorite teacher out there!
