tonight i dined with some friends at a restaurant called the “blue door” here in saint paul. it’s a tiiiiiiiiiiiiiny little place, serving up amazing burgers, fries, cheese curds, fried pickles…basically heart attacks on a plate. i had a delightful veggie burger and mound of tater tots (no judgement, i didn’t finish it all…almost…not all). it was really fun celebrating our friend eleanor (whom you have heard much about), and her “almost here” baby. she is due on friday!! she and i decided that we are going to walk the mall of america on saturday morning for a few hours if she hasn’t gone in to labor yet! so, again, prayers that she doesn’t go into labor at school or at the mall of america, or really any place she would be considered “under my care.” thanks.
in other news, today at school we had a lot of “girl drama” in my first grade room. lots of tears over not being told secrets, lots of yelling and trying to all be the boss. one story in particular had me laughing though…i went over to a group of girls surrounding another little girl in my room who was in tears. i walked up and asked “okay girls, what’s happening now?” to which the reply was “oh nothing ms. leah. she’s fine. she’s almost over it.” said while rubbing crying-girls back… lol
i just walked away. i mean…they seemed to have a handle on it. (and don’t worry, i made sure that the little girl crying was definitely faking some crocodile tears for the attention). it kinda made me sad to think that all the drama of girl-hood starts at such a young age…but such is life and they were all playing and laughing and hugging by the end of the day. true girls.
also today i received my email letting me know i could order my birchbox now! i am super excited to see what i get! if you don’t know about birchbox you can check it out here. a nice little shout out for birchbox there i’ll let you know what i get in a month!
what else..what else….nothing really i guess. pauly and i are snuggled up on the couch, each on our own laptops…you know…just spending some quality time together
here are some random pics from tonight, more from crashed ice, and some of me just testing out my new iphone camera app “afterglow”.
