This month is flying by and I have a feeling things aren't going to slow down for awhile!

I don't have too much to update you all on because work has basically been consuming our (mainly Trevor's) lives. We usually leave the house before 7, luckily I get home around 3 or 3:30 and Trevor doesn't get home until after 10! So he has been putting in some loooooong hours! This is where living with the parentals has come in handy because I am not completely along in the evening! I usually have dinner with them and have someone to hang out with until Trevor gets home...which at that point is usually time to go to bed!

I am feeling settled in my classroom and have most of the decor I want on the walls! Overall it has been such a great experience! I have some of the best classes and amazing coworkers! I will say coming from a singing/dancing job to teaching has been quite a life change; but I am loving it! I won't bore you with work details, but my mom and Trevor helped in putting my classroom together, so I wanted to share a couple pics!
These are my flower pens! 6th graders like to "borrow" pens and pencils, so I made mine look different so I don't end up with no pens at the end of the day!

My calendar! I bought the calendar, but I made the month part! I also bought those cute hall passes! I'm sure the boys love carrying zebra hall passes! My mom and Trevor did the border around the dry erase board.   

I'm on the green team, so my curtains I had at all my college houses fit in perfectly! (My mom made these for me my Junior year of college) My mom and Trevor did a great job hanging them!

I got a great idea from a book I read about not having "rules" in your classroom, but instead calling them something other than rules (in my case "Words of Wisdom") and making them all things that fit in with every day life. It's been working really well so far! We add to the list a couple times a week!
A little homework incentive!

This is behind my desk! My awesome Pistol Pete that a good friend made for me (Thanks Andrea!!) and my photo collage of important people in my life!
I can't believe it's the end of the weekend already!!! Have a great Sunday Funday!!!

It's Tee Time

Not to be confused with Tea Time!

Yes...I went golfing for my 1st time this weekend and I have to say, it wasn't too bad! I really did enjoy myself! Trevor had been out of town all last week and he really wanted to go golfing on Saturday; since we hadn't been together all week I think he felt bad for leaving me at home, so he asked me to join them. I'm sure glad he did! I didn't really play, but I did warm up a little at their driving range (I literally got a 2 min tutorial from Trevor on the basics), so I wasn't a pro, but I don't think I was terrible! Then, as the guys were playing, sometimes I would join them on a hole or two! Here are some photos of the experience!

This was my job! Luckily I didn't wreck...I think I drove too slow to wreck! haha! I'm too cautious!

Trevor and his perfect swing! Well perfect to me! ;)

Reading the green???...or brown! haha!

Yayy for golf day!!!
Thanks for taking me hubs!!!

Now backing up a little! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!
On New Years Eve my ear was hurting really pain I had never felt before. So Trevor took me to the Urgent Care down the road and I ended up having an ear infection! Not such a great thing on NYE when you are going to a concert!
Here are a couple photos from our amazing New Years Eve!
The girls at dinner! Yokozuna!

YAY! for Eli Young Band!

We had such a great time at the concert! My ear didn't even hurt too much either! I did have some pain medication that helped that problem though! After the concert we came back to my parents house and got in the hot tub for a bit! Overall it was a great evening!

And now we are back to the daily grind! Last week I was extremely ill due to my ear infection and some complications that came with it, but I am back on my feet and feeling much better! I hope everyone has a fabulous week!
