Homecoming Week Fun!!!

This week was homecoming! We had "spirit week". It was SO MUCH FUN!!!
Here are a few pics...
Nerd Day

Teachers can have fun too! :)

Dress alike day. Myrtle is in the third grade at the school where I teach, and we wore the same thing! :) So fun to be able to share precious memories together still, even though I don't babysit her every week anymore... 
We had a door decorating competition. It transformed into a hallway competition... this was part of my hallway! The students had a blast decorating their own silhouettes! 

Last week, at small group, our leader gave out MONSTERS to take home! SCORE! 

I LOVE SPIRIT WEEK!!! We had Nerd Day, Dress Alike Day, Fancy clothes, Pajama Day, and Blue&Gold Day. My favorite was definitely pajama day! :) 
I had a blast. I am so excited to work at a school that participates in fun things. I get to have FUN at work!!! :) 

Did your school do dress up days?

Kisstixx Review and Giveaway!!

Kisstixx sent us some FUN products to try and review on the blog! :)
After years of mediocrity in the lady department, Kisstixx® founders Dallas Robinson and Mike Buonomo decided to make some sweet MySpace profiles—when that didn't pay dividends they transformed their dorm rooms at Utah Valley University into makeshift chemistry labs and created what they would argue is the best thing to happen to kissing since the French got a hold of it-Kisstixx®. With their newfound all-star level tonsil hockey skills, they are now much more popular with the ladies, and by popular we mean they don’t have to do product testing on their hands anymore.
Kisstixx® just took lip locking to the next level. With over 12 deliciously compatible flavors, get ready to kiss boring goodbye. Each package contains two flavors, one for you and one for your partner. Simply lock lips to mix the flavors and experience a kiss you won’t soon forget.

Special Date and Eggplant Parmesan Recipe

Last weekend, Jared and I had a really quick visit, but it was SUPER SWEET. 
First, we made a new recipe together. (okay, I made most of it, but he helped stir ingredients! haha)

We made Baked Eggplant Parmesan! 
I had seconds, and Jared had "2 and a half" servings! :) 
Protein: 14.0gCholesterol: 27.0mgSodium: 473.6mgFat: 17.8gCarbohydrates: 16.4g

Then, Jared had a golf lesson in the same town where we met up for our VERY FIRST DATE, so we decided to "relive" our first date.

We ate at Mancino's Grinders, walked on the river walk, and went to the EXACT bench where we shared our first kiss! It was very sweet. GREAT MEMORIES!!!  We had a little fun in Kroger later on... haha... This is how I stay warm, since I'm always freezing walking through the store!!!
