This and That

This is going to be a bit of a hodge-podge post. A little bit of this and that. I'm just so darn excited about going to my mom and dad's tomorrow, I can't keep my brain straight!

Yesterday, I spent a lot of the evening prepping some meals for our freezer. I know that my schedule is going to get out of control in the next few weeks, so I thought it would be good for me to have some food in the freezer, ready to thaw and heat for those nights. So I put chicken enchiladas, King Ranch chicken, Mexican lasagna, and chicken and rice casserole in the freezer (using a whole cooked chicken :)) Here they all are in the fridge, cooling before making their way to the freezer.

At the finish of that, I was in need of some serious sugar, so I made these too! Let me tell you, those chocolate/carmel apples really hit the spot. All the spots. They weren't much to look at, but boy did they taste yummy.

Today, I got my hair redone. I got it cut a few weeks ago, and I loved it. But we had tried to add some red lowlights, and they didn't take. So I finally got back in today, and got my hair completely styled. The first picture is a few weeks ago before...the second is tonight with everything all done. Don't look too closely at my's naked. Or the camera beside my head. I'm a little ghetto.

After I got my hair done, I went to school, and I finally finished hanging Romeo and Juliet posters. I realized I never posted after pictures of my I took a few today. It's a little busy right now (it's what happens when you try to hang a whole grade level's worth of posters in one room), but you can get the main idea. Oh--and I'm posting a picture of the sign Andy made me for my rules.

I've gotta tip for you for how to take a picture of yourself... put your camera in front of you, and look in the mirror to see what the screen shows. Then, look at the camera and click :)
Great to see the computer desks in your classroom. Are they all equipped?
