Marvelous Monday

Today was a GOOD day. Great, even! It was one of those days at work when I really felt like all of my students "got it," and that made me so happy. We're currently working on persuasive speeches so I was teaching them all about thesis statements, claims/evidence, and all that fun stuff. Even though those topics can be a bit dry, they seemed to enjoy it...probably had something to do with my weird peanut butter and jelly sandwich example though. haha. OH but while at work snow started falling and by the time school was out we had a nice white blanket covering the front lawn! They immediately called a two-hour delay for tomorrow, so I don't have to go in until 10am. After work I went to the gym, and then brought home Hugo's for a night in, which we spent on the couch, cozied up and watching The Biggest Loser. Hank just got home from tour this morning, so it's been nice to spend a lovely evening inside, with the storm going crazy outside! He's currently super into Monday Night Football so I thought I would sneak away and blog for a bit.

I have gotten a lot of questions about my tattoos, so I thought I would send you over to this entry, from July. It's my "tattoo story" and goes into detail about all of it. Keep in mind that since that post I've gotten my neck, thigh, and rib panel done as well! If you'd like to see some photos of them, you can visit this post- just scroll down through all the photos until you get to the tattoo question and my answer.

So, the rest of this week is going to be a pretty relaxing week. I have a bit more holiday shopping to do, and Hank and I also need to take our "Happy New Year" photoshoot for our cards! I am just so glad he is home. I'm definitely an independent kinda gal, but my heart still physically hurts when we are apart. Six years later and it never gets easier! Speaking of him being gone, while he was on tour a friend of their band gave him this cute Marc by Marc Jacobs promo tee to give me! How sweet is that? This isn't the best photo but it's a pretty orange color, with an umbrella and "marc by marc jacobs" falling like rain. I am going to pair it with a high waisted skirt and cardigan. Love it.

Right now the wind is absolutely insane outside. I'm actually kind of scared our windows will blow in! In spirit of this windy night I thought I would make a cute playlist, perfect for sitting indoors and enjoying a cute night in.

I hope all of you have a great evening!

  5. Hi! I love you blog! I had a question for you. I am studying to be an elementary teacher, and our professors constantly tell us not to have any personal information about ourselves on facebook, myspace, blogs etc, just as a precaution. For example, if parents saw something and didn't like it. I love your blog and don't see anything wrong with it. I was just wondering if you have had to deal with anything like this and what you did about it. Thanks!:-)

  6. Yay playlist!

    could you please send me the html code for your playlist..i am trying to get one to work in my own blog but the edge keeps getting cut off...if i could compare codes i could see where mine is gone wrong. Thanks!

  7. Seriously LOVE the tattoo posts! Good for you! I am loving reading old posts (& of course new ones). My best friend is a high school English teacher at an alternative school. I'm sure you two could share some stories, lol! You're seriously beautiful inside and out.

  8. Hi Danielle,
    I just started reading your blog this afternoon, and your blog is truly appropriately named as you are the sweetest (:
    Anyways, just wanted to say hi. I'm studying to be a high school science teacher and your blog makes me so excited since apparently you can still be amazingly cute, cool, and a teacher!

  9. take my heart is the cutest song and even tho i dont know you personally i feel like it could be about you and hank.

  10. i really enjoyed/appreciated your tattoo story. no tattoos yet, though i am seriously contemplating...

  11. Just read your post of pictures requested by readers. I see that you get tattooed by cory, I do as well! He is amazing. I love your rib piece that he did!
