A trip up north and pickle pops

30 Jul

“I’m so excited, I just can’t hide it!” I will be taking a trip to visit my parents in Michigan tomorrow! I’m so happy to finally be getting a real vacation from my  summer “vacation!”  It’ll be the first time this summer that I’ve traveled, which is sad since this is the only time of year I have the time to go places. I’ll be sure to be taking LOTS of photos of my trip so expect a picture-heavy post when I get back.

My sister, Katie, will be having her big art show this weekend, so that should be fun, and exciting for her as she had to apply and be selected to participate.  Check out a little of her creative spark here!  She is so artistic and makes jewelry out of just about anything you can think of: bottle caps, metal cookie tins, leather scraps, beads, vintage buttons, you name it, she uses it!  I hope the show goes well for her, the economy is tough on artsy-fartsy people like her!

How random is it that Anne is also traveling to Michigan, from Texas tomorrow?!  I wonder if we’ll have a blogger meet up on board one on our flights!

Here’s my random bit of the day! I saw this at my local grocery store and HAD to take a picture! Would you try these?!?!

Mmm, pickle pops! Ick! Really what is up with this? Who would pay money for pickle juice?

about me…

So here’s a little about my life.  Some would call it busy, and other boring- I think its a little of both! But I can be sure that everyday has surprises in store!

Most of my day is kept busy being an elementary music teacher for grades Kinder through fifth grade.  You just never know what to expect on a day to day basis! You may not realize this but being an elem. music teacher doesn’t just mean teaching music! It means I have to be an artist, disciplinarian, costume designer, dancer, singer, work the sound system, cafeteria/lunch duty, plus much more!  It can be difficult, but also a lot of fun when the kids are cooperative and doing well!  I see anywhere from 5-11 classes a day, for 30 minutes each.  Kinda crazy on days when I have classes back to back, from 1st, then Kinder, then 2nd, then 5th! Definitely takes some planning!

After school (because I enjoy it, and to help make end meet) I teach private piano lessons at a local Piano store.  Some of my kiddos have been studying with me for over four years already!  I really enjoy seeing the progress my once four years olds are making (now age 8!)

Evenings for me consist of making dinner, going to the gym, or working on my etsy store.  (www.whispersofwhimsy.etsy.com)  Hubby is in Grad school getting a degree in Information Technology, so are schedules are a little weird right now.
