Larry Joe Taylor!!!

California has a huge music concert. So does Stephenville, TX. I love this place and all the TX country music. And all the goofy faces my friends and I make listening to music.


One of the best tacos in the Texas. They have garlic sauce that they put in their tacos. The other big draw is the CHEAP margaritas. Yum yum.

Lazy Girl Outfit

I have been studying for my comprehensive exam for my masters degree, which is why I've been MIA. Today, I met my mom and brother for dinner and I didn't have time to get ready. Here is my outfit. Or lack there of lol. My cat was rolling around on the floor that's the grey streak on the floor beside my feet.

Playing Games

Every time we go to visit my grandparent we almost always go to the Mexican food place down the street. It is one of 5 places to eat in the big town of comanche so it gets old quick. However, there is one game machine my family cannot get enough of. It is one of those stick a quarter in and it has moving shelves and you are trying to knock quarters or prizes off the shelves. My papa and brother
could play the game for hours. Lol
Here is my brother and papa playing. It's the simple things in life, like quarter games, that make you truly happy. :-)

Hunger Games

Today, as I was pulling out of the teacher parking lot, I noticed the street name. Primrose, Primrose Everdeen lol, so cool.

My Mimi's 70th

My Mimi is pretty awesome. Today is her 70th birthday. We took a few pictures of her party :-).

The last picture is her right before her 30th birthday. She's gorgeous.

Oh, Breaks

I had a pretty easy day Thursday at school Thursday. In 1st period, we had an Easter Egg Hunt with the girls in Athletics. They brought the cutest eggs. Then Friday we had off for Good Friday. I went to the pool with my old roommate and got some sun (with sunscreen).

I hope you are having a fabulous Easter Weekend!!!

My Makeup

I am a not a morning person, like at all. I try to fit in as much sleep as possible in the morning. This usually leads to me running late. My makeup because of my sleepinness is very simple. I am also a teacher, so simple makeup=less boys hitting on you. It is nothing special. Everything is from the drugstore except my foundation. It is from Clinique and is the ance solution apparently. Then my eyeshadow primer from Urban Decay. I am in love with it. The primer was a bit expensive but It really does work, so it was worth the $18 bucks.

Things My Student Say

Student: "Awwww, f**k"
Student: "Oh, yeah, sorry, ........damn it is bright out"
Me: "Really, LANGUAGE..."
Student: "That is not a cuss word, it is a technological innovation" (We had just talked about dams the day before in geography. So, I kind of laughed.....not going to lie.

In athletics
"Coach, I cut my finger so I can't do crunches"

Me: "What continent is the Great Wall of China located?"
About 5 students: "China"

After handing out a test review
Student: "Is this stuff going to be on the test?"
Me: "sdfuhybwigeuhnwiugr" <--------- and I really do that

Student: Hey, soooo can you just pretend that I have a 100 in this class when you talk to my mom at the parent conference?

Student: "You don't have kids?"
Me: "Uhhh, no"
Student: "Your like 23 right? That's old, my sister has 4 kids and she's 23."

Student: "Ms. W, you look really tired or sick. Are you pregnant?"
Me: "I have very little makeup on and really?

I am eating apples and peanut butter....

"Ms. W, are you pregnant? Because you are always eating funny things...."

This is face I am usually thinking about making. I use hand gestures a lot too, especially when I am annoyed.

So, Texas Got Sketch

Today, as I was minding my own business in a Geography training I am informed there are tornadoes in the Fort Worth area. I pull up my weather app (because everyone with a smart phone immediately becomes the greatest weatherman because they have radar on their phone) and look at the weather. Sure enough, it is sketch. All I see is red. A tornado hit Arlington and Dallas. I am posting some really cool,  but at the same time scary videos.

I love how this guy is giving his thoughts and is STILL DRIVING while taking this video!! It takes a minute to actually see the funnel but it shows up. His commentary alone is enough to watch the video.

This video shows when the tornado hits a trailer parking lot. Trucks are flying. They were empty and parked.

Moral of the story, Mother Nature is crazy.

Pretty New Shoes

I went to Old Navy yesterday looking for color blocked flats. I got some but I'm not sure I like them yet. Then I found a pair of brownish and pink flats. I love them!!! When I got home I put an outfit together to go with my pretty new shoes. They were both on sale for 12 dollars. Amazing. I love it when I find a deal.

Tell me what the you think about the color blocked beige and blue flats.

Oh Scotland

I don't know if I have mentioned this yet, but I will be spending a month of my summer in SCOTLAND!!! Cue excited face!!!

this is the best excited face I could do lol

 I love Europe, like love it enough to pick up and move it the opportunity arose. My dream job would be to teach at an American school and travel all over.

This summer,  I will be studying Scottish History at Edinburgh Napier University. It should be interesting because Scotland is debating whether or not to be a part of the United Kingdom. Hot political climate.....nerd out moment.

Besides knowing that it is Scotland, which is a part of the UK, I know nothing about my new adventure........

Google Search Images:

Oh, ya, totally excited now!!! June, hurry up and get here.

I am now single. Even saying the word after 6 months is strange. (I know, its only 6 months but still) My single question is why do guys come out of the woodwork when you are newly single? Where were all of these awesome guys before you got into a relationship? Not that I would change being with Clay for the last six months, but before him the prospects were looking rather bleak. So, to give an update on my love life. I am fabulous and taking my time deciding who is worth my time!!!

Sex and the City!

My New Favorite Things

What is a breakup with out some retail therapy.

1st. It actually looks much cuter on. I am wearing this to a rehearsal dinner on Thursday.

2nd. I could wear this with beige rights and my boots. Another way would just be some beige heels.

3rd. Hot pink shorts with a black shirt tucked in worn with heels. Adorable

4th. A romper. I love rompers.

So the boy and I broke up. Hence the radio silence over here. I am upset but I know in the end it is for the best. We both want different things out of life and are going our own ways.

Speaking of that how do you get over a breakup?

I go out. A lot. Shop. A lot. Watch sad movies. Rely on my friends and I have really good ones so it isn't hard.

My favorite movie to watch is Sex and the City. I really mean the series. It is yet again speaking to me!

Wonderful Wednesday

Today, I reached a milestone!!! A little one but it still had me excited. I had my 500th page view! I know, it isn't a huge number but I am honestly thrilled. I love that 500 different times someone has looked at my blog. Crazy to think about!
Moving on!

Have any of you ever gone back and looked at your Myspace or Xanga? I did last night. Hilariousness!!!! Flash back picture style!

My best friend and I on the way to our camping trip. Right before, we all went separate ways for college!

I think, that I still look the same. Hmmmm, maybe I should do a college year by year post! It would be entertaining for sure lol.

Dr. Seuss Quotes

In my opinion, I believe Dr. Seuss has be all time best quotes. Right behind Kurt Vonnegut. Way random combination of quote obsessions, I am aware!

Here are my favorite ones!!!

Have a fabulous Tuesday!

My Students Say The Darndest Things

Except this time it isn't the funny version.......

One of my students had been absent for 2 weeks.....yes, 2 WEEKS.

She had finally turned in her makeup work the previous Friday. On Friday, she comes asking for her grade. I tell her

me-"I don't have an accurate grade because I haven't graded all your work yet."
her-"I really need that grade miss."
me- "Well, I am sorry. (pointing to the massive pile of papers to be graded) As you can see I have a huge stack and I am slowly making my way through it all"
her- "Isn't it your job to grade our papers?"
me- (I am going to kill a child!!!) "No, it is my job to teach you. Which, I have done all week and haven't had the time to grade your makeup work."


The nerve of that kiddo. She really thought that it was my job to grade her MAKEUP work in a timely fashion. I understand, that it had been a week but it is the end of the 6 weeks. I have huge stacks of things to grade and only a 45 minute planning period to do it!!!!!

Most of the time, I love my students. On Friday, I wanted to bang my head against the wall!

Day #10

Day Ten

It is just a picture of me!
I really need to invest in a new camera!
My self-picture skills need improvement badly; I realize this!

This is my brother's bathroom now. I posted quotes on the mirror to look at every morning, and apparently my brother likes them because my favorite one is still up! 4 months after I moved out lol
